Assalamu alaykum,

Adage Ltd. is a non-profit translation and education company registered in the United Kingdom. Adage is dedicated to produce a complete database of ahādīth translated into English and has the capacity to incorporate several additional languages in the future, if God wills. The translated ahādīth will be available online on a regular basis as well as published when work on the English phase is completed. For more information about this project, kindly visit our website: http://www.adageonline.net
The available translations of ahādīth up till now, be that online or published, are either imprecise or partial at best. Contrastingly, and due to the significance of presenting ahādīth in the way suitable to the noble figure of Prophet Muhammad, may Godís peace and blessings be upon him, we seek to provide the entire English translations of the following books:
1. Sahīh al-Bukhāriy
2. Sahīh Muslim
3. Sunan Abī-Dawud
4. Sunan at-Tirmithiy
5. Sunan an-Nasā'iy
6. Sunan Ibn-Mājah
7. Muwatta' Mālik
We made sure that the translation of each hadīth is displayed beside its Arabic version, along with its full tahqīq (reference); i.e. its degree of authenticity, reporter, book (chapter), number and narrator.
Due to its significance and scope, the planning phase for this long-term project and intricate task lasted over 18 months. Currently, the accreditation of this project is pending while actual work has already started with the contribution and blessings of several hadīth and Islamic scholars.
Our team comprises a selection of competent volunteers devoted to this honourable cause, all of whom seek no financial benefit. We are solely dedicated in this project to spreading the words of our beloved Prophet (may Godís peace and blessings be upon him). Furthermore, this project aims to make a humble contribution to the introduction of Islamic teachings to all through him that represents Islām best.
We would like to stress that we do not promote or affiliate with any organization.
We would be very grateful if you could spare some time to help us in this endeavor. Your contribution can be in the form you find convenient and this flexibility gives you the freedom to choose. Any contribution as small as pointing in someone's direction could make a difference.
