Maariful Hadith by Ml Manzoor Numani, is it reliable?


Please help I am layman who regularly views your website in order to seeing today I need your help on Hadith. 

question in regards to hadith you said in a couple of your fatwas that the best hadith books for a laymen is 40 hadith by imam nawawi, Adab al mufrad by bukhari, riyadhus saliheen and mishkat al masabih. What about maariful hadith by Shaykh Muhammad manzoor noomani? or is it the same as mishkat and not beneficial? as reading mishkat is enough on that area of hadith?


In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

Dear Brother,

May Allah Ta’ala grant you more ability to benefit from our website.

Maariful Hadith by Maulana Manzoor Nu’mani [Rahimahullah] is very useful and beneficial.

We do not understand your last statement “or is it the same as mishkat and not beneficial?”.

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
