hadith

Ḥadīth (in Arabic: حديث‎ ʾḥadīṯ literally means “talk” or “discourse”) or Athar (Arabic: أثر‎, ʾAṯhar, literally means “tradition”) in Islam refers to what Muslims believe to be a record of the words, actions, and the silent approval of the Islamic prophet Muhammad. hadith have been called “the backbone” of Islamic civilization, and within that religion the authority of hadith as a source for religious law and moral guidance ranks second only to that of the Quran.

The collection of hadith has been collected over the centuries, recognizing some of them as true, and others as false, but still none of these sayings coming from an earlier oral tradition was written by Prophet Mohammed.
