Hadith are also known as traditions. They are sayings of the Holy Prophet (saaw), or His Family (as) or companions. The original sayings are passed on from one person to the next through a chain of narration. These days it is very easy to get hold of books of hadith, and of course alhumdalillah we can learn very much from these sayings of the Holy Prophet (saaw) His Family (as) and the companions.

It is necessary to apply an element of common sense and discretion when reading hadith for the reason that hadith are not protected. We all know that the Quran is protected by Allah (swt), it cannot be altered in any way. However, hadith do not enjoy this preservation. It is therefore very important to realise that hadith are not always 100% correct. Some hadith may have been 'made up' in history for political reasons, other hadith may have simply been the victim of human error when they were written or relayed from one person to the next.

Having said this, there are many many beautiful hadith from which we can learn so much. There are many sayings that relate to muslim manners for example and how we should treat our fellow human beings, how we should approach Allah (swt) with our repentance, kindness to parents, this world and the Hereafter etc etc.

The golden rule with regards to hadith is simple. If a hadith goes hand in hand with the Quran then we can accept it. If a hadith goes against the teachings in the Quran then we must dismiss it as false.

Hadith or narrations are sayings of the Holy Prophet (saaw) or other sinless members of his family i.e. the  Ahlul Bayt (as). Hadith have been preserved through chains of narration. Historically collections of hadith have been collated and preserved to date. It is necessary to apply an element of common sense and discretion when reading hadith for the reason that hadith are not protected. We all know that the Quran is protected by Allah (swt) and cannot be altered in any way, Hadith however do not enjoy this preservation. It is therefore very important to realise that not all Hadith are always 100% correct. Some hadith may have been “made up” in history for political reasons, other Hadith may have just been the victim of human error when they were written or relayed from one person to the next. Having said this there are multitudes of beautiful Hadith from which we can learn so much. There are many sayings that relate to Muslim manners for example and how we should treat our fellow human beings, how we should approach Allah (swt) with our repentance, kindness to parents, this world and the Hereafter etc Two golden rules: 1) If a Hadith goes hand in hand with the Quran we can accept it, but if it contradicts the teachings of the Quran we must dismiss it as false. 2) Always and where ever possible refer to the Ulema (Qualified Jurists) whenever you need validation of a particular Hadith as they are qualified and can determine the authenticity of a particular narration and the lay people are not.
