ḤADĪTH OF THE DAY
“ Abū-Qatādah was once [travelling] with the Prophet, peace and blessings of God be upon him. As they got to one of the roads leading to Makkah, he lagged behind with some of his companions - who were in the state of consecration(1), while he was not. He then saw a wild ass, so he mounted his horse and asked his companions to hand him his whip, but they refused. He then asked them for his spear, but again they refused, so he took it [himself], attacked the wild ass and killed it. Some of the Companions of the Prophet, peace and blessings of God be upon him, ate from it while others declined. When they caught up with the Prophet, peace and blessings of God be upon him, they asked him about that, and he replied, "It is but food that God has given you." Footnotes: 1: (iḥrām) A state of sanctity for the rituals of pilgrimage. ”
Adage is committed to excellence in all its work. Our translators and editors sit a rigorous test before being selected to do their tasks. The work is run by volunteers who dedicate time and effort to spread the Sunnah of the Prophet, peace be upon him. While our translation work is done by volunteers, maintaining the website and creating innovative projects to expand the scope of ahādīth requires funds. This is where you can share in the thawāb. We are creating a valuable database defined by high standards and you can play an integral part in the success of this endeavor by sponsoring our work and donating to maintain the continuity and success of the project.
