I studied and investigated this script which consists of forty Prophetic hadiths and is divided into three sections: the virtue of praying for the blessings on the Prophet (Allah's blessings and peace be upon him), the virtue of the jihad for Allah's sake and the virtue of the Ikhlas surat "Say, Allah is One". They were collected by the writer from various books of the Sunna. He also referred to the resource from which he selected hadiths.

I obtained this copy from a hadith collection of three scripted theses kept in Azhariya library in Egypt. I asked Allah for guidance whether to set out studying them or not. Caring for documentation through authentic references, I tried to document these hadiths from these authentic references. As a later stage, I documented according to other available references. This is all in order to keep on the priority of investigation principles. I did my best to mention the status of the hadith according to books of status judgment (takhrij). One may find an opinion of such contemporaries who investigated and judged the status of the book in question. This is in order to make it easy for the reader, at least, to know the hadith status. This investigation is preceded by a study I did about the writer's life, book and my own procedure of investigation. It is to be known that the resources dealing with the writer are quite rare, but I did my best to obtain information of his.
