About Adage

Adage Ltd. is a not-for-profit translation and education company devoted to the production of the first online database of hadīth in different languages, starting with a complete English translation.

So far, only partial translations are available online. For this reason, the first phase of this database will integrate the entire English translations of the following books:

1. Sahīh al-Bukhāriy
2. Sahīh Muslim
3. Sunan Abi-Dawūd
4. Sunan at-Tirmithiy
5. Sunan an-Nasā’iy
6. Sunan Ibn-Mājah
7. Muwatta’ Mālik

We have decided to start where others have stopped. Thus, the first translation to be presented by Adage is of Sunan at-Tirmithiy, because there is no comprehensive/complete translation of the book available on the internet. While there are multiple sources of hadīth online, what differentiates Adage from others is a number of key elements. The working team comprises a selection of competent volunteers including professional translators, native proofreaders, Islamic scholars, and IT specialists among others, who are devoted to this honorable cause, all of whom seek no financial benefit. Our project aims at presenting an online translation of hadīth that is free, comprehensive, multilingual, and of exceptional quality.

Adage does not promote or affiliate itself with external organizations of any kind.

Hadith of the day!

A warm welcome to Adage Online; an ambitious project aiming to present the first comprehensive multilingual database of hadīth on the Internet


Prophet Muhammad's traditions and teachings are considered to be the second source of legislation and guidance in Islām after the Qur'ān. By resorting to the Prophet's own words, the seeker of knowledge guarantees an authentic and unbiased insight into the world of Islām. Muhammad's teachings embody what is perhaps one of the most needed messages, in a world battered by conflict, blinded by prejudices and grieved with the absence of mercy and tolerance. Despite the many ambitious attempts to preserve Muhammad's precious legacy, there are only partial translations available on the Internet. At Adage, thorough planning has already advanced to tangible work for this noble cause to be achieved. Please keep your eyes on this space, as more ahādīth will be available on a regular basis. This is a humble contribution to the introduction of Islamic teachings to all.
