ḤADĪTH OF THE DAY
“ The Prophet, peace and blessings of God be upon him, visited a young man on his deathbed and asked him, "How are you?" The young man replied, " Messenger of God, by God, I am hoping in [the mercy of] God and fearful of [the consequences of] my sins." The Messenger of God, peace and blessings of God be upon him, said, "Whenever these two [states] combine in the heart of a servant [of God], at a moment like this, God will indeed grant him (1) what he hopes for and secure him from what he fears." Footnote: (1) Masculine pronouns are generally used in Arabic as a means for referring to both men and women when the meaning is left general and is not otherwise specified. ”
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.
