ḤADĪTH OF THE DAY
“ The Messenger of God, peace and blessings of God be upon him sent Abū-’Ubaydah Ibnul-Jarrāḥ to Bahrain, from where he returned with some money. al-Anṣār (Supporters of Madīnah) heard of the arrival of Abū-’Ubaydah, and came to perform the dawn prayer (1) with the Messenger of God, peace and blessings be upon him. After the Messenger of God, peace and blessings of God be upon him, prayed, he was about to leave when they stood in his way. Upon seeing them, the Messenger of God, peace and blessings of God be upon him, smiled and said, "You probably heard that Abū-’Ubaydah has returned with something." They replied, "Yes, Messenger of God." He said. "Then, rejoice and expect what would please you. For by God, it is not poverty I fear for you, rather, I fear that the world will be unfurled for you as it was unfurled for those who preceded you, and you will compete for it as they competed, then it will destroy you as it destroyed them.” Footnotes: (1) (Fajr) The first prescribed prayer of the day that takes place before sunrise. ”
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.
