The Koran repeatedly commands every Muslim to follow the perfect example of Mohammed’s life. His actions and words are called the Sunna. The Sunna is found in the Traditions of Mohammed called the Hadith. A Muslim is far more governed by the Hadith than the Koran.
The Hadith give us fascinating 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.
If only the Koran existed, there could be no Islam. The Koran does not have enough information to practice Islam, but the Hadith has all that is needed to follow the example of Mohammed as a husband, a father, a leader, a warrior and the perfect husband.
The Hadith is an easy place to begin learning about Mohammed and Islamic doctrine.
A Taste of Islam Series
The propaganda from the media, universities, and government is that Islam is so complicated that only Muslims and their apologist representatives in the media, universities and government have enough intelligence to understand Islam. We are to sit back and the “authorities” will give us the truth about Islam.
There is one and only one source of the truth about the doctrine of Islam and that truth is found in the Foundational texts of Koran, Sira, Hadith and Sharia. Now these texts have been edited down to a series of books that are less than 70 pages long. Each of these can be read in an hour or two.
These books are brief, but authoritative because most paragraphs have an index number that will allow you to go to the original source book and verify the truth of the material. Everything is based on Allah and Mohammed—the only true authorities.
