In Arabic, the noun ḥadīth (Arabic: حديث) means “report”, “account”, or “narrative”.
Its Arabic plural is ʾaḥādīth (أحاديث) Hadith/Hadees also refers to the speech of a person.
Hadith/Hadees are the transmitted narrations concerning the speech, actions, appearance, and sayings of our Beloved Prophet Muhammad, (peace and blessings be upon him). Hundreds of thousands of these narrations have been carefully preserved, studied, and passed down through the centuries, with many of them having undergone a strict procedure to verify an authentic chain of transmission up to the Prophet ﷺ. Hadith form the textual core of the Sunnah, an important source for the derivation of Islaamic jurisprudence second only to the Qur’aan. Hadith specialists have compiled hadith in various collections.
