IslamicbooksHazrat Shaikh Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) once mentioned to an Aalim:

May Allah Ta‘ala accept the deeni services that you are engaged in. However I wish to share some important advice with you. I regard translation work as extremely difficult, especially translating the mubaarak ahaadeeth of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). The reason for this is that if one incorrectly translates the mubaarak ahaadeeth, he will be attributing something to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) which he did not say. (Qutbul Aqtaab Hazrat Shaikhul Hadith Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya [rahmatullahi ‘alaih] pg. 450)
