  Hadith - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Hadith (Arabic: الحديث‎ translit: al-ḥadīth) are traditions relating to the words and deeds of the Islamic prophet Muhammad.
Hadith collections are regarded as important tools for determining the Sunnah, or Muslim way of life, by all traditional schools of jurisprudence.

Thus hadith literature means the literature which consists of the narrations of the life of the Prophet and the things approved by him.

 Hadith Qudsi - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Hadith Qudsi (or Sacred Hadith) are a sub-category of hadith, which are sayings of Muhammad.
Muslims regard the Hadith Qudsi as the words of Allah, repeated by Muhammad and recorded on the condition of an isnad (chain of verification by witness(es) who heard Muhammad say the hadith).
However, according to as-Sayyid ash-Sharif al-Jurjani, the Hadith Qudsi differ from the Qur'an in that the former were revealed in a dream or through revelation and are "expressed in Muhammad's words", whereas the latter are the "direct words of God".

 HADITH & THE KORAN
Hadith doctors have traditionally evaluated Hadith on its chain of narrators and its body text, according to their own criteria of what should be correct.
The Hadith, contrary to this mention "stoning to death," as being the punishment of adultery in the case of married couples.
Hadith forgers knew about this so they inserted another Hadith which claims that a verse on stoning existed in the Koran but it was eaten by a goat and so vanished from the earth (Ibn Maja 36/144; Ibn Hanbal 3/61;5/131, 132, 183;6/269).

 Chapter 2 - Hadith as the second Primary Source of Islamic Law   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
The contents of the Hadith are expressed through the Prophet's own words or actions, while in the case of the Holy Qur'an, the angel Jibrai'l ('alayhi al-salam) conveyed the exact wordings and contents of the divine revelation to the Prophet (s.a.w.s.).
Hadith is not necessarily the exact words spoken by the Prophet (s.a.w.s.), while the Holy Qur'an is the actual words of Allah.
The Hadith from or about the Prophet (s.a.w.s.) is the word or action of a human being and not the speech of Allah (SWT) as is the case of the Holy Qur'an.

 Hadith
The knowledge of the correct practice is known as sunna, a term often used interchangeably with hadiths.
The value and accuracy of the hadiths should be regarded as fairly high, when judged by modern scholarship.
While the notion that the Koran is complete and all-inclusive is strong among Muslims, the hadiths are still frequently used, and the development of Muslim theology and law, Sharia, would have been impossible without them.

Therefore, the Hadith is the written record of the oral traditions passed down from the Muslim to Muslim of what Mohammed was supposed to have said and done.
The Hadith, however, though the words of the inspired prophet Muhammad, are not necessarily infallible.
The Hadith are important because they elucidate many areas not covered by or were not very clear in the Qur'an.

 HADITH
Hadith eulogies for the Companions in the Mishkat-ul-Masabih compilation still portrayed political conflicts between the Shi'ite faction and the followers of Abu Bakr and shows that the hadith was fabricated by the factions to support their respective sides.
Although these false hadiths were advocated to serve as a bridge to link up all the warring factions in peace and harmony, it became evident soon enough that these false hadith standing on their false foundations would collapse.
The hadith writers are fond of saying that the collection and collating of the hadith was undertaken with much care and accuracy, especially by Bukhari and Muslim –; two of the hadith writers held in the highest regard by their own followers.

 Hadith Authenticity
The sunna, as embodied in the hadith is not to be underestimated or minimized as a material or textual source of the law.
Islam is the sunna, the concept of the practice of Muhammad, as embodied in the hadith and transmitted faithfully by Muhammad's followers through the succeeding generations down to the present.
Thus, in Islam the hadith are the recorded traditions of the divinely inspired actions of Muhammad.

 Weak Hadith
Firstly, to be a sahih hadith, the hadith must have the chain of transmission (isnad) in which there is no weakness.
Furthermore, the fact that a hadith is not a sahih hadith does not mean that the hadith is not a true report regarding Muhammad’s life.
The fact that a hadith was included in Bukhari's or Muslim's collections is strong evidence that the hadith is an authentic one, even though its isnad may not meet the standard required to be a sahih hadith.

I have always wondered why the Hadith and Sunnah's were EQUAL to the Quran in reverence.
Hadith Qudsi (or Sacred Hadith) are so named because, unlike the majority of Hadith which are Prophetic Hadith, their authority (Sanad) is traced back not to the Prophet but to the Almighty.
quran and hadith are not equal, hadith that contradict the revelation from the almighty are classified as weak hadith for this reason.

 Clarification Regarding the Difference between Sunnah & Hadith
In contrast to the transmission of the Qur’an and that of the Sunnah, the transmission of Hadith is critically dependant on not only the correct understanding and perception of the narrators but also their correct and unblemished reporting of that saying or incident.
It is also quite predictable that if Hadith was considered by the companions of the Prophet (pbuh) as an independent source of the Shari`ah, the more accomplished and the more well-known among the companions of the Prophet (pbuh) would have made special arrangements for the collection and recording of the narratives of the Prophet (pbuh).
Finally, had Hadith entailed an independent and essential element of the Shari`ah, the Prophet (pbuh) would then have left an official corpus of Hadith with his companions and would not have left the acceptance or rejection of any given Hadith at the discretion and understanding of later scholars and Muhadditheen.

Hadith Qudsi are the sayings of the Prophet Muhammad (Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon him) as revealed to him by the Almighty Allah.
Among the many definitions given by the early scholars to Sacred Hadith is that of as-Sayyid ash-Sharif al-Jurjani (died in 816 A.H.) in his lexicon At-Tarifat where he says: "A Sacred Hadith is, as to the meaning, from Allah the Almighty; as to the wording, it is from the messenger of Allah (PBUH).

 The Qur'an, Hadith, and the Prophet Muhammad
Since Islamic legal scholars were utilizing hadith as an adjunct to the Qur'an in their development of the Islamic legal system, it became critically important to have reliable collections of hadith.
Such collections were made possible by the development of the science of hadith criticism, a science at the basis of which was a critical analysis of the chain of (oral) transmission (isnad) of the hadith going all the way back to Muhammad.
Answer to the Question of A'isha's Age at the Time of Her Marriage to the Prophet Based on an analysis of the relevant hadiths, the Muslim author of this article argues--in contrast to some hadith reports- that 'A'isha was about 15 years of age when her marriage to the Prophet was consumated.

 Is Hadith an Independent Source of Islam
If Hadith were accepted to be the primary source of Sunnah, it would then imply that lack of knowledge of a particular Hadith would result in the lack of knowledge of a Sunnah of the Prophet (pbuh) contained in that Hadith.
Indeed one may find a Sunnah of the Prophet (pbuh) mentioned in a particular Hadith, yet even such a Hadith is not the primary source of knowledge of that particular Sunnah of the Prophet (pbuh).
Moreover, as is quite obvious that if Hadith had been considered a primary source of Islam, the Prophet (pbuh) and his companions would have indeed directed all their efforts to the compilation as well as the transmittance of Hadith, once the compilation of the Qur’an was completed and its transmittance secured.
