Hadith are narrations originating from the words and deeds of the Islamic prophet Mohammad. Hadith are regarded by traditional schools of jurisprudence as important tools for understanding the Qur'an and in matters of jurisprudence. ..
A classic example of Hadith is the saying: 'Islam has been built on five pillars: testifying that there is no god but Allah and that Muhammed is the Messenger of Allah, performing the prayers, paying the zakat, making the pilgrimage to the House, and fasting in Ramadan.'

A term used to describe the supposed teachings, sayings, and traditions of the Muslim prophet Muhammad. These are embraced by the majority of the Muslim population without recognizing that these teachings go against the base teachings of Islam and also tend to make the last prophet of Islam, Muhammad, look, depending on what side you're on, like a horrible, murderous dictator that had no problem drinking camel piss or killing the infidels usually indicating Jews or Christians. Hadith is supposedly a supplement to the Quran.
After further study, I realized that the Hadith is a grouping of lies invinted by shady men who lived centuries after Muhammad and that they go against the basic teachings of Islam and the belief that the Qur'an is perfect and needs no explanation.
