The easiest way to learn about Islam is through the traditions of Mohammed (the hadith).
The Koran repeatedly commands every Muslim to follow the perfect example of Mohammed's life, his words and deeds (called the Sunna). The Sunna is found in the Hadith, the collections of the Traditions of Mohammed, and in the Sira, Mohammed's biography.
Since there is not enough information in the Koran for Muslims to practice the Five Pillars of Islam and understand the Islamic doctrine, the easiest way to learn about Islamic doctrine is from these Traditions. The Hadith gives us fascinating and detailed accounts about Mohammed. We know what he looked like, his sense of humor, his superstitions and how he ate. Details about his sex life, family life and leadership are all recorded.
These Hadith contain all the information that is needed to follow the example of Mohammed as a husband, a father, a leader, a warrior, and the perfect husband.
This book is concise and authoritative. The reference system allows you to confirm and verify all information.
