The Hadith are anecdotes about Muhammad and other founders of Islam. They are considered important source material about religious practice, law, and historical traditions. This is an extensive collection of Hadith as organized by Muhammad Ismâ'îl al-Bukhârî, one of the most respected of the Hadith redactors.

The translator of the source text of this etext (and its copyright status) is unknown, and any information about this would be greatly appreciated. It may be the edition of Muhammad Asad, mentioned in the preface to A Manual of Hadith, but we don't know. There are also some occasional (and very obvious) minor gaps and errors in this etext, which we haven't attempted to correct, since we don't have the source book.
