1,001 Sayings and Deeds of the Prophet Muhammad

Paperback, 440 pages

First, there are Allah's rules which we've talked about in Pain, Pleasure and Prejudice, and then there are the hadiths (or hadith, in English academic usage hadith is often both singular and plural), the sayings and example i.e. deeds of the Prophet Muhammad.

The authenticated sayings and example of the Prophet Muhammad, along with Koran, are the basis of Sharia law.

Given the fact that [hadiths are] often used as the lens through which to interpret the Koran, many Muslim jurists consider [them] to be even a greater authority on the practice of Islam.
