The Hadith (traditions) are the most important source of Islamic teaching and ideology after the Qur'an. These traditions, derived from the life of the Prophet Muhammad, form a body of sacred texts faithfully handed down in the Muslim community from its earliest days. They function as a basic source on the history of early Islam, whether illuminating the life of the Prophet, giving the first commentaries on the Qur'an or operating as a source of Islamic law. This book, based on research, both challeges existing interpretations concerning the Hadith as a historical source ad provides original interpretations of their literary and religious significance.
