From the beginning of the history of Islam after the Holy Prophet Muhammad(P.B.U.H), Muslim ummah: including gents and ladies has been making efforts to save Prophet Muhammad's (SAWS) Hadiths. Because Hadith is the authentic exaggeration of the Holy Quran. Without hadith one cannot understand the correct meaning of the Holy Quran.
