Hadith Browser & Concordance

Search the Hadith:

  • This database supports searching for complete words only. A query for the word "eat" will only return data containing that word, and not data containing "eaten", "eating", etc.
  • Queries can only contain characters from the following set: alphanumeric characters, dash "-", left parenthesis "(", and right parenthesis ")".
  • Boolean operations are supported: "and", "or", and "andnot".
  • Searches on this database are very fast, however the disadvantage is that more complex types of queries are not supported. In particular, if you need to use wildcards, please try the Verity Search below.
  • Searches can be limited to specific collections of ahadeeth by using the checkboxes below.
  • The results of searching on this database is a list of individual hadeeth numbers. Each number is a link into a chapter from a particular collection. By clicking onto the link, your browser will be positioned directly on top of that particular hadeeth.
  • An example of a classic MSA-USC query string is: (paradise or heaven) and laugh and man and last

Search for query in:
Sahih Bukhari (complete collection)
Sahih Muslim (complete collection)
Sunan Abu-Dawud (partial collection)
Malik's Muwatta (complete collection)
