Reference Page: Sunnah, Hadith and Prophetic Supplications of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ

My dear readers, and brothers and sisters! We at Islam: My Ultimate Decision have made an earnest effort to convey the true word of Islam. While we have made many sections of our site so that our readers can easily go to the section of knowledge about Islam they may be seeking.  Today we add yet another sub section to our site which is about the Sunnah and Hadith of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ.

We have already written a detailed introductory post on Sunnah and Hadith of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ and many other posts on the subject. We now feel a need to compile all such posts so that anyone looking for knowing more on Sunnah and Hadith of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ may be able to find these in this reference page.

However, it is just the beginning and tip of the iceberg as this a very large segment of our religion and volumes have been written by many Hadith compilers like:
  • Sahih Bukhari by Muhammad al-Bukhari (194-256 AH)
  • Sahih Muslim: a 9th-century hadith and sunnah compiled by the Persian scholar Muslim ibn al-Ḥajjāj (815–875). The Sahih of Muslim collection contains nearly 12,000 hadiths but again given repetitions and multiple versions of the same report, the actual number of Prophetic traditions is estimated at around 4000.
  • Sunan Abu Dawood by Abu Dawud al-Sijistani (d.889)
  • Sunan al-Tirmidhi by Al-Tirmidhi.[1] He began compiling it after the year 250 A.H. (A.D. 864/5) and completed it on the 10 Dhu-al-Hijjah 270 A.H. (A.D. 884, June 9).
  • Sunan al-Nasa'i by al-Nasa'i (214 – 303 AH; c. 829 – 915 CE).
  • Sunan ibn Majah by Ibn Mājah (born 824 CE, died 887CE).
There are many other eminent scholars and Hadith collectors who took upon them the sacred task of preserving the Hadith of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ. Bu the ones referred above are considered more authentic and whole encompassing. But we would restrict our compilations of the above quoted six compilations for most of the Hadiths are authentic based on credible linkages.

Before we go on to our reference pages attributed to specific subjects, let us share a very important Hadith, which summarizes the definition and meaning of Islam, faith, Ihsan and the Day of the Doom which every Muslim must remember by heart for it is perhaps the sum total of Islam:

Herein under are the links to our Reference Pages regarding Sunnah, Prophetic Supplications and Etiquettes as taught by Prophet Muhammad ﷺ: 
Reference Pages to collection of Hadiths about a Specific Subject: Since the volume of Hadiths is increasing, we have divided our effort about Hadiths on Specific Subjects and General Subjects. This would help us to manage the current page so that its substance does not become lengthy to sift / look for a Hadith on a specific subject:
Hadiths regarding Ramadan/Eid/Voluntary Fasting
May Allāh (سبحانه و تعالى‎) help us understand Qur'ān and follow the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ, which is embodiment of commandments of Allah contained in the Qur'ān. May Allah help us to be like the ones He loves and let our lives be lived helping others and not making others' lives miserable or unlivable. May all our wrong doings, whether intentional or unintentional, be forgiven before the angel of death knocks on our door.  
وَمَا عَلَيۡنَاۤ اِلَّا الۡبَلٰغُ الۡمُبِيۡنُ‏ 
(36:17) and our duty is no more than to clearly convey the Message.”
That is Our duty is only to convey to you the message that Allah has entrusted us with. Then it is for you to accept it or reject it. We have not been made responsible for making you accept it forcibly, and if you do not accept it, we shall not be seized in consequence of your disbelief, you will yourselves be answerable for your actions on Day of Resurrection.

May Allah forgive me if my posts ever imply a piety far greater than I possess. I am most in need of guidance.

Reading the Qur'ān should be a daily obligation of a Muslim - Reading it with translation will make it meaningful. But reading its Exegesis / Tafsir will make you understand it fully. It will also help the Muslims to have grasp over social issues and their answers discussed in the Qur'an and other matter related to inter faith so that they are able to discuss issues with non-Muslims with authority based on refences from Qur'an.

Note: When we mention God in our posts, we mean One True God, we call Allah in Islam, with no associates. Allah is the Sole Creator of all things, and that Allah is all-powerful and all-knowing. Allah has no offspring, no race, no gender, no body, and is unaffected by the characteristics of human life.
