ḤADĪTH OF THE DAY
“ The Messenger of God, peace and blessings of God be upon him, said, "Indeed, God forbade by breastfeeding (1) what is forbidden by kinship (2) (with regards to marriage)." Footnotes: 1. A woman becomes a child's breastfeeding mother only if she nurses that child five times during its first two years of life and thus becomes forbidden to him in marriage. 2. Specified in the verse: “Prohibited to you [for marriage] are your mothers, your daughters, your sisters, your father's sisters, your mother's sisters, your brother's daughters, your sister's daughters, your [milk] mothers who nursed you, your sisters through nursing, your wives' mothers, and your step-daughters under your guardianship [born] of your wives unto whom you have gone in. But if you have not gone in unto them, there is no sin upon you. And [also prohibited are] the wives of your sons who are from your [own] loins, and that you take [in marriage] two sisters simultaneously, except for what has already occurred. Indeed, Allah is ever Forgiving and Merciful.” an-Nisā' 4:23 ”
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.
