Being widely spread within and beyond the Arabic speaking world, the Forty Hadiths still belong to one of the most popular and varied types of hadith collection. Based on a quantitative research of more than nine hundred relevant collections, this study opens up the so far less regarded field of Forty Hadith collections and demonstrates their importance in Muslim belief and life praxis from the ninth century onwards. Dealing with the upbringing of children, religious practices, Jihad, etc., the selected traditions of the prophet Muhammad in the Forty Hadiths cover a wide range of topics. The motivation to compile such a collection derives from a saying ascribed to Muhammad, promising high rewards to those who collect forty hadith. The collections function as useful handbooks, an overview of specific aspects, as well as religious edification; therefore, they are accessible to academics and non-academics alike.

With a focus on the political and religious surroundings in which Forty Hadith on Jihad emerge, the topic of the ‘exertion on the path of God’ will be for the first time systematically treated based on small hadith collections. A detailed analysis of four representative Forty Hadith collections on Jihad from the 12th,15th, 17th and 20th century illustrates the formulation of the thought and ideology of Jihad. Further, it shows different emphases on the importance and preconditions of conducting Jihad as well as its rewards or punishments in the different selected collections. The translation of all four of them (in German) makes the specific hadith material, which has been circulating from the time of the crusades to the present day, accessible to scientists and others with interest even beyond the field of Islamic studies.
