Hadith (Arabic: حَدِيْث‎)

Hadith in Arabic is a narration or the Sayings taken from the Life of Holy Prophet of Islam, Muhammad PBUH. Hadith is strictly used at the side of Holy Quran to interpret the Islamic Sharia, Jurisprudence and the Way of Life in accordance to the will of God while following the footsteps of The Messenger of God (PBUH) & His companions known as Sahaba. At one occasion, the Holy Prophet PBUH said that “My companions (Sahaba) are like Stars, anyone who followed them, would reach to his / her goal”.

The word Hadith or Hadees means something or a bit of record of the Sayings of Holy Prophet PBUH. Any addition, deletion, assumption or fake reference is strictly prohibited and only the reliable source is acceptable. Hadith is an extremely sensitive Topic and Subject, so extra ordinary care is required to be taken while quoting unquote. The Holy Prophet PBUH at another occasion warned that “Anyone who wrongly quoted my Sayings and Teachings would be thrown to the Hellfire”. In real, the actual meaning of Hadith is an assertion, action or approval attributed to the Holy Prophet of Islam, Muhammad (PBUH). Hadith may be divided into three terms or categories based upon their contents of material:

1.     A Statement of the Prophet PBUH.

2.     An Action of the Prophet PBUH.

3.     The Prophet’s PBUH approval of a motion.

After the departure of Holy Messenger of God PBUH back to Heavens, the “Muhaddithin” means The Authors of Hadith and Muslim Scholars wrote down almost all the sayings of Holy Prophet PBUH, covering all walks of life i.e. what He had said, what He had done and what He had approved for His followers to come. The Scholars also wrote those narrations which were informed thru proper channel and reliable resources. Some of the Hadiths were retold typically earlier than they have been written down. Some did not cover in every detail within the designated area so to have a look at Hadith by the Scholars evaluates among the one Hadith with reference to the context while keeping in view the core authenticity of the Sayings in all possible ways.

Muslim scholars gathered all of these Hadiths in books and compiled them each to different volumes. They decided which Hadith has been mostly close in all its likelihood and sure to be genuine records of the Sunnah, that is, the phrases and actions of Holy Prophet Muhammad PBUH. Muslims see it with a strong belief that Sunnah is the only source of guidance in conjunction with the Holy Quran. Islam is the last divine Religion on Earth which is complete in all respects so nothing can be changed in any way whatsoever. The Hadith ranks 2nd after Quran which not only elaborate a complete Code of Life but also guide us and facilitate to spend our lives easily as per the wish & will of Messenger of God PBUH & God Almighty – Allah SWT.

Abu Hurairah (RA), the closest companion of Holy Prophet PBUH has the honor to lead his fellow companions to narrate the maximum of Hadiths, the Sayings of Prophet Muhammad PBUH.
