500 Al hadith


Knowledge of al hadith is essential in an effort to understand Islam. They contain rules and regulations, when implemented, would give cause to a better understanding of everyday life. This is applicable, to the individual of a society and also to the society as a whole. The messages within the alhadith are for the benefit of both, individual and society.

The Quran was revealed to the Last Messenger Muhammad(peace be upon him) through the angel Gabriel.

The alhadith show us the diversities a single person can have, and the ways these diversities may be used to produce an optimal performance, where the performance is exemplary for future generations. This was one of the main tasks of the Last Messenger (peace be upon him), to guide humanity on the right path. Muhammad (peace be upon him) was a son, a husband, a father, an advisor, a warrior, a leader, a judge and most important of all, he was the Seal of the Prophets - the last messenger of Allah. A man with such a character and such a vast field of responsibility is indeed deserving of biographical study, and

through the ages, biographical researches have been carried out. The collection of alhadith is the result of these researchers. The study of alhadith is a science itself.
