In the religion of Islam, Hadith is often translated as “prophetic traditions” and is the corpus of reports of the teachings, deed, sayings, and silent approvals of the Islamic prophet Muhammad (outside of the Quran).  The hadith literature was compiled from oral reports that were in circulation in society after the death of Muhammad. In other words, the ḥadīth are attributed reports about what Muhammad said and did.
