Narrated Abdullah (raa: Radiallahu Anhu): The Prophet (saws: Sall-Allahu alayhi wa sallam) said, “The people of my generation (raa: Radiallahu Anhu) are the best, then those who follow them, and then whose who follow the latter.”

“After that there will come some people whose witness will go ahead of their oaths, and their oaths will go ahead of their witness.”

Ibrahim (a sub-narrator) said, “We used to be beaten for taking oaths by saying, ‘I bear witness by the Name of Allah or by the Covenant of Allah.”

  1. Assalamu Alikum,

    I have read many hadeeths from this website ( Alhamduallah! Jazakallah for sharing such knowledge!

    Is the transalation from Muhammad Muhsin Khan ( saudi doctor)?
    If so, there is too many ERRORS/MISTAKES with the transalation.

    For excellent hadeeths transaltion please google Sunnipath or visit their website direct –

  2. This is really a beautiful website and every single post are really valuable for a Muslim student who would like to build and maintain a good character.
    I really felt that it would be a good idea if there was some way to subscribe to rss feed for this website to make sure I dont miss any new valuable post.
    May Allah reward everyone behind this website for their effort.

      1. Here’s what I don’t understand about ppl who surpopt FGM on religious’ grounds.. Why is FGM restricted to specific regions on the planet and not equally spread out across the Muslim world? Why is there no record or tradition that Prophet Mohamed subjected any of his daughters to this barbaric act or required it of any of his wives? Enough of using religion to justify mutilation and enough of using science to justify deviations of religion!

    1. assalamalekum, please tell me how to donaolwd the quran translation word by word flash from your bogroll to my hard disk its nice page by page and tafseer of some words. please let me donaolwd iam a revert to islam in the year 1998. shukran.

    2. thank you for your comments First I would like to invite you to embrace IslamIn the Holy Qur’an, God Most High enjoins Muslims to issue the following call to Christians (and Jews—the People of the Scripture): Say: O People of the Scripture! Come to a common word between us and you: that we shall worship none but God, and that we shall ascribe no partner unto Him, and that none of us shall take others for lords beside God. And if they turn away, then say: Bear witness that we are they who have surrendered (unto Him). (Aal ‘Imran 3:64)People need to understand that Islam protects the honour and dignity of women. We do not treat our women like sex objects or sex toys. Women are our daughters, our mothers and our wives and we strongly believe that the dignity and the respect of the woman should be protected.We are not calling to take away the rights of women not to be educated. And the moment people use the word “Radical” it means speaking the Truth.In this western culture women are being used to promote immorality and evil like dacing a strip clubs,prostitution,promoting cars etc. The status of Women in the western culture is degrating and despicable. Women In islam are respected, dignified and honoured and bring a law banning women to protect their dignity would do good in Canadian society.

  3. Asalamoalaikum brother,
    A nice attempt.InshALLAH you’ll get reward in the life hereafter for your struggle.I have an advice.Whenever you put a hadith,do try to give some commentary or explanation for that because without it we can assume many things that are not meant like in the above hadith I cant understand the reason or explanation of the last part , “After that there will come some people whose witness will go ahead of their oaths, and their oaths will go ahead of their witness.” what is the message in it? you must cover the message as well as the authenticity of the message you are trying to give.I hope you understand.

    I love you for the sake of ALLAH(SWT) may ALLAH(SWT) forgive us.

    1. Wa alaikum salaam, I agree. I am trying to put as much authentic commentary as I can find, English is not so easy for Hadith commentary. If you know of any good sources Insha’Allah you can let me know.


      Jazak Allahu khair

    1. We try the best we can with in our own abilities to improve ourselves and understand as they did. Each individual will have his/her on level and ability to understand but that shouldn’t stop us from continuing to try.

      As for why? They (Companions – may Allah be pleased with them) were taught from the Prophet (peace be upon him), the best teacher and example. The also had insight into things that we do not have now because of this close relationship they had with the Prophet (peace be upon him)

  4. As-Salaamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakato Brother,

    MashaAllah, I really like the new version of the website. May Allah accept and reward you and your family in this dunyaa and in the akhirah. I was wondering, will you be posting the biographies of each individual companion or are you just intending for a visitor of the website to see all of the hadith connected to the sahaba’s name?

    JazaakAllahu Khairan.

    1. Wa alaikum salaam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatahu.

      Insha’Allah, The plan is to have all information possible (hadiths, Quranic verses, bios, video and audio lectures, etc.) for each of companions, however it takes time. I have started bios for two of the companions below and Insha’Allah I will find a good way to organize (tag) the articles to separate the bios from the hadith.

      Any suggestions?

      Current Bios:
      Bilal ibn Rabah
      Khadijah al-Kubra
