Hadith (Arabic: حديث‎, /ˈhædɪθ/[1] or /hɑːˈdθ/[2]) in Muslim religious use is often translated as prophetic ‘traditions’, meaning the corpus of the reports of the teachings, deeds and sayings of the Islamic prophet Muhammad. The hadith literature was compiled from oral reports that were in circulation in society around the time of their compilation long after after the death of Muhammad. Bukhari’s collection is considered the most reliable by many traditional religious scholars.
