ḤADĪTH OF THE DAY
“ The Messenger of God, peace and blessings of God be upon him, said, "Religion is willingness (1)." He repeated this three times. The Companions asked, "Towards whom, Messenger of God?" He replied, "Towards God (2), His book (3), the leaders of the Muslims (4) and the public (5)." Footnotes: (1) Being sincere. (2) Truly believing in the oneness of God, and purifying one's intentions when worshipping Him. (3) Believing in God's book (the Qur'ān) and applying its teachings to one's life. (4) Obeying them within the boundaries set by God. (5) Advising them. ”
A warm welcome to Adage Online; an ambitious project aiming to present
the first comprehensive multilingual database of hadīth on the Internet
Prophet Muhammad's traditions and teachings are considered to be the second source of legislation and guidance in Islām after the Qur'ān. By resorting to the Prophet's own words, the seeker of knowledge guarantees an authentic and unbiased insight into the world of Islām. Muhammad's teachings embody what is perhaps one of the most needed messages, in a world battered by conflict, blinded by prejudices and grieved with the absence of mercy and tolerance. Despite the many ambitious attempts to preserve Muhammad's precious legacy, there are only partial translations available on the Internet.
At Adage, we are working every day to translate new ahādīth, create new cards, and work on numerous other products - all related to this great legacy. Please keep your eyes on this space, as more ahādīth will be available on a regular basis. This is a humble contribution to the introduction of Islamic teachings to all.
