Wa-alaykum al-salam wa-rahmat Allah.

Dear brother,

The book Musnad al-Firdaws (مسند الفردوس) by [Abū Manṣūr] al-Daylamī (Jr) is a lost work: it is available only partially (in manuscript form), and has, hence, never been published, to my knowledge.

However, Ibn Ḥajar al-ʿAsqalānī has authored a book titled Zahr al-Firdaws (زهر الفردوس), also known as al-Gharā’ib al-Multaqaṭah min Musnad al-Firdaws (الغرائب الملتقطة من مسند الفردوس), in which he has narrated (some) ḥadīths from Musnad al-Firdaws of [Abū Manṣūr] al-Daylamī (Jr).

You may download Zahr al-Firdaws from here:

(1) الغرائب الملتقطة من مسند الفردوس مما ليس في الكتب المشهورة - مخطوط: manuscript transcript in BOK format: https://shamela.ws/rep.php/book/522 [BOK].

(2) الغرائب الملتقطة من مسند الفردوس = زهر الفردوس: published for the first time by Jamʿiyyah Dār al-Birr (جمعية دار البر), Dubai, in 1439/2018: https://www.almeshkat.net/book/14654 [PDF; BOK].

To open BOK (.bok) file, download, extract, and run/install the following “empty/emptied (مفرغ)” version of the Shamela Islamic Library (المكتبة الشاملة) v3.64: https://www.almeshkat.net/book/2288.

Hope you found it helpful.

Wal-salam alaykum wa-rahmat Allah.

One more thing.

There is a published book called al-Firdaws (الفردوس)—also known as Firdaws al-Akhbār (فردوس الأخبار)—which people mistakenly confuse to be the Musnad al-Firdaws (مسند الفردوس) of Abū Manṣūr al-Daylamī.

The truth, however, is that the book Firdaws al-Akhbār is not the same book as Musnad al-Firdaws.

The book Firdaws al-Akhbār is authored by Abū Shujāʿ al-Daylamī—the father of Abū Manṣūr al-Daylamī.

Also, the book Firdaws al-Akhbār contains ḥadīths without the chain of narrators (isnāds).

It is for this reason that the son of the author of Firdaws al-Akhbār, Abū Manṣūr al-Daylamī, had written the book Musnad al-Firdaws, in which he had provided the chains of narrators (isnāds) for the ḥadīths mentioned in the book of his father, and this is why he had named it Musnad al-Firdawsmusnad meaning “provided with isnād(s)”.

You may download the book Firdaws al-Akhbār from here:

(1) al-Firdaws bi-Ma’thūr al-Khiṭāb (Beirut: Dār al-Kutub al-ʿIlmiyyah, 1406/1986): http://shamela.ws/index.php/book/6072 [BOK; PDF]

(2) Firdaws al-Akhbār bi-Ma’thūr al-Khiṭāb al-Mukharraj ʿalā Kitāb al-Shihāb (Beirut: Dār al-Kitāb al-ʿArabī, 1407/1987): https://www.almeshkat.net/book/5823 [PDF].
