Nuzhat an-Nadhar fi Tawdhih Nukhbat ul-Fikr fi Mustalah Ahl al-A’thar is a commentary by Imam Abul-Fadhl al-Hafidh Ibn Hajar al-Asqalani on his own book titled ‘Nukhbat ul-Fikr‘. It is said that while Ibn Hajar was alive, a student of his named ash-Shumunni sought his permission to write a commentary (and he did so), which might have not impressed Ibn Hajar as he was recorded to have said; “The owner of the house knows best whats in it.” It is also said that some student of Ibn Hajar requested him to expound on his book (Nukhbat ul-Fikr) and so he wrote this book and Allah knows best.
