    Abstract

    This short volume will be a welcome addition to the shelves of anyone with an interest in the religious roots of moral education in Islam. A hadith ('prophetic tradition', plural ahadith) is a record of the words, actions or silent approval of the Prophet Muhammad or his companions, and the ahadith are the second most authoritative source of moral guidance in Islam, after the Qur'an itself. Of the many collections of ahadith in existence, that compiled by al-Bukhari in the third century of Islam is generally considered the most authentic. Known as al-Jami' al-sahih, al-Bukhari's magnum opus includes over 7,000 stories and traditions gathered from the most reliable sources and subjected to rigorous standards to establish their accuracy and truthfulness
