Library For Tracing Broken Links
web sites linked to for Qur’an & hadith citations have
down or made drastic changes resulting in broken links.
Explorer, CMJE and the King Fahd Complex are no longer working.
Links to those sites are broken and there are too many to

In most cases, I include the Surah/Ayat numbers or (volue).book.numer
for hadith. Sometimes I use a pure text link. In those cases, hover
your mouse over the link and get the numbers from the old url.
The printed books use a different numbering system. You will
need to open the relevant title in Sunnah.com/, then search for the
book & number. Volume numbers are highlighted blue, books
purple and numbers yellow in these broken link examples.
Corpus Quran is an Arabic/English
translation with dictionary &\ concordance with a word by word
breakdown of each verse.
The Internet Archive seems to be a fairly stable source for most texts,
but some, notably Mishkat Ul-Masabih, have been removed. Hilali * Khan’s translation of the Qur’an
is one of the best, fairly explicit in all but a few verses.

The hadith sites I have been linking to are derived from the USC-MSA
database which, claiming to be complete, really was not. The Sahih
Bukhari version they uploaded was Bowdlerized, at least one hadith was
deleted and a crucial word changed in another that I know of.
Unortunately, the printed book uses a different numbering
as does Aisha Bewley’s translation.
has the six sittah with citations to the books and the on line
ddatabase for cross referencing. But it, too, has been Bowdlerized: the
hadith in which Moe said his provision was under the shade of his spear
is present in Arabic but not the English translation. There
some things the Muslims do not want us to know! Check it out,
linked to the Bowdlerized saying.
Archive.org will let you read the streaming texts and download the pdf
files. It is easier to download the complete sets. Sahih
is considered to be the most authentic, followedy Sahih Muslim.
Those are the two I use most. Sunan Abu Dawud comes in a
third. Jamih Tirmidhi is large but contains
other collections which make it useful. That is where you
go to track down the 72 virgins trope and learn that 70 are women taken

Riyad Us-Salaheen combines relevant ayat and ahadith,
should read it! I can not find Mishkat, but I found a small
anthology which does contain the Islamic Creation Myth which exposes

A study of Islam is incomplete without Sira: biographies of the Profit.
I have only read one of them completely, having searched the
others and read parts. The Sealed Nectar is as close as you
get to an officialy recognized Sira. Ibn Ishaq’s is the
somewhat Bowdlerized by Ibn Hisham and translated by A. Guillaume.
Ibn Kathir’s Sira seems to be based on Ishaq’s, with added
from his tafsir, of cuss, in 4 volumes. Page 31 of vol. 4 combined with
9.29 and Sahih Bukhari vol. 4, pages 108 & 140 form
smoking gun required to condemn Islam.
you know that Moe dictated and dispatched extortion letters, following
up with his army? Read about it in Ibn Sa’d. Did
his shit did not stink, drinking his piss saves you from gutache and
drinking his blood saves you from the fire? Did you know he
suborned numerous murders and approved of others after the fact?
If not, you need to read Ash-Shifa.
Islamic law aka sharia, can not be neglected! They keep tearing down
Reliance Of The Traveller as soon as they find it, here is the current
file, English text only. Risala is the shortest and easiest
read. Hedaya is in two dense, volumes with archaic type face and
vocabulary but containing vital information in the second volume,
beginning on page 139. [Al-Sayir-The Institutes]
