    Saheeh al Muslim, Saheeh al bukhaari - though it becomes obvious when reading that lots of context is required along with the ability to notice that they are non-Quranic historical records penned from memory by people and do often contain conflicting accounts.
    Still, that's life, and they are amongst the best.

    The Ahadith are much more than simply historical records penned from memory. There is a whole science in Islam dedicated to this subject, including the study of the chains of narration and the narrators of hadith, such that the Ahadith have been preserved with immense care and precision. The following is taken from Islamweb and sheds more light on this. It also highlights that Islam is based upon the Qur’an and Sunnah taken together, and that it is not solely based upon the Qur’an.



    "Verily, We have sent down the Reminder, and surely, We will guard it (from corruption)" [Al-Qur'an, Surah al-Hijr, 15:9].

    The above promise made by Allah is obviously fulfilled in the undisputed purity of the Qur'anic text throughout the fourteen centuries since its revelation. However, what is often forgotten by many Muslims is that the above divine promise also includes, by necessity, the Sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad (May Allah bless him and grant him peace), for it is the practical example of the implementation of the Qur'anic guidance, the Wisdom taught to the Prophet (May Allah bless him and grant him peace) along with the Scripture, and neither the Qur'an nor the Sunnah can be understood correctly without recourse to the other. Allah preserved the Sunnah by enabling the Companions and those after them (may Allah be pleased with them) to memorize, write down and pass on the statements of the Messenger (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) and the descriptions of his Way, as well as to continue the blessings of practising the Sunnah. Later, as the purity of the knowledge of the Sunnah became threatened, Allah caused the Muslim nation to produce outstanding individuals of incredible memory-skills and analytical expertise, who journeyed tirelessly to collect hundreds of thousands of narrations and distinguish the true words of precious wisdom of their Messenger (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) from those corrupted by weak memories, from forgeries by unscrupulous liars, and from the statements of the enormous number of 'Ulama', the Companions and those who followed their way, who had taught in various centers of learning and helped to transmit the legacy of Muhammad (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) - all of this achieved through precise attention to the words narrated and detailed familiarity with the biographies of the thousands of reporters of Hadith. Action being the best way to preserve teachings, the renewers of Islam also revived the practice of the blessed authentic Sunnah...

    'Abdullah Ibn al-Mubarak (d. 181 AH), one of the illustrious teachers of Imam al-Bukhari, said, "The Isnad is part of the religion had it not been for the Isnad, whoever wished to would have said whatever he liked". Among the sciences of Ahadith is the study of the chain of reporters (the Isnad) and many Muslim scholars have specialized in this field. It includes identifying the name of each and every narrator (reporter), his character (his truthfulness, piety, public behavior), his ability and reputation as a memorizer and the types of narrations he is known to report, whether authentic, weak, fabricated, etc. In addition, each narrator should be identified by a rating given by other narrators who knew him. So all of these and many other details must be considered to know the degree to which a Hadith may be used as a basis for Islamic belief or practice (Sharia), or merely as a point of interest (not to be attributed to the sayings, etc. of the Prophet). The Ahadith collected by Imams Bukhari and Muslim are all considered to be Sahih (authentic) by the Hadith experts. Both of these books contain only Sahih Hadith. However, there are other famous collectors of Hadith: Abu Dawud (d.275), al-Tirmidhi (d. 279) and al-Nasai (d. 303). Allah knows best.

    https://islamweb.net/en/fatwa/83075/




    If any hadith are difficult to understand, it is best to ask a scholar. There are also commentaries on the books of hadith, some of which are available in English or partly translated. In this way, any doubts about conflicting accounts will be removed إن شاء الله. Both the Qur'an and the Sunnah are revelation from Allah سبحانه وتعالى therefore there is no possibility of contradiction therein.

    The following post provides numerous links if anyone needs more detailed explanation on the authority of the Sunnah and responses to common allegations against the science of hadith:

    If you love Riyadhus saliheen I think you should try one of the following

    al-lulu wa al-marjaan

    Baluugh al-maram


    You can download the PDF copies of both and read to see if you like them.

    Then you can purchase them.


    The PDF of the second one here


    I do not know of a pdf for the second one. But you can read about it here

    They actually have a sample you can download

    Re: looking at buying hadith and tafsir books...



    May I humbly recommend the following two books before you embark on study of tafseer and hadeeth:

    Usool at Tafseer by Dr Abu Ameenah Bilal Philips

    "An Excellent Gift to Students of Islamic Sciences Literally translated 'The Fundamental Principles of Qur'aanic Interpretation,' this book refers to the branches of knowledge which are necessary to provide an accurate interpretation of the Qur'anic texts, such as Arabic grammar and syntax, Arabic literature and Qur'anic sciences ('uloom al-Qur'aan). Addressed topics include the Tafseer of the Qur'an, books of tafseer, translations of the Qur'an, Wahy ('divine revelation'), reasons for revelation, the differences between Makkan and Madinan revelations, Naskh, the Muhkam and Mutashaabih, and more."

    https://kalamullah.com/Books/Usool%20at-Tafseer.pdf

    Usool al Hadeeth by Dr Abu Ameenah Bilal Philips

    "The science of hadeeth terminology and assesment is a particularly difficult field of study. Dr. Bilal Philips has managed in this text to simplify this topic and to make it quite relevant to our times by addressing some of the most challenging questions raised by those who question the validity of hadeeth literature in general."

    https://www.kalamullah.com/Books/Usool%20al-Hadith.pdf

    They are a really interesting read in themselves and broaden ones background a bit on the subject of hadeeth and tafseer and the sciences and methodology behind them and basis of them. Insha'Allah they'll help strengthen your foundation on the subjects and the knowledge you gain will benefit you as you read ahadeeth and tafseer.

    If you haven't already, I'd also humbly suggest starting learning classical Arabic, as everything you read otherwise is a translation.

    If possible, and I know it might not be everywhere, perhaps you could find a reliable teacher. There are also online courses, but again you have to pick something reliable.

    Lastly www.sunnah.com is s searchable hadeeth website that has original text and chains of narration along with translation. The home page lists all the hadeeth collections it has.

    May Allah make it easy for you and give you and us all tawfiq to read, understand and implement Quran and hadeeth in our lives, ameen.

    Stunningly beautiful adhaan from the Dome of the Rock in Masjid ul Aqsa
    Download (right click and choose "save target/link as").


    This is a clear message for mankind in order that they may be warned thereby, and that they may know that He is only One God, and that those of understanding may take heed (14:52)


    Indeed Allah knows, and you know not (16: 74, part)
