The teachings of Prophet Muhammad (blessings and peace be upon him) are the second source of the Islamic knowledge after the Holy Qur’an. They explain and elaborate the Qur’anic verses. They also explain, in minute detail, the manner of worship as performed by the Prophet (blessings and peace be upon him).
The Prophet’s statements provide furtherclarification and details as to how to fulfil what Allah has ordered and refrain from what He has forbidden. These teachings have been meticulously collected and reported by the Prophet’s Companions (may Allah be pleased with them).
