A Big Collection of Short Hadith

A Big Collection of Short Hadith

A collection of over 70 short hadith to easily read and memorize.

I’m always using short hadith for my class to practice their handwriting in the mornings. Instead of writing something that will never be used in life such as ‘the wild fox jumped over the fence‘.

short hadith collectionI get them to write a short hadith for their handwriting practice, usually around one line long. This way they get to read a hadith by writing it many times and they get to memorize it as well, we also talk about it so that, it is not only memorised but they also get a good idea of what it means!

I found a good collection of short hadith which I always use but this is coming to an end as I’ve used up most of it. So now it’s time for me to create my own short hadith collection I’m listing it here so that everyone else can benefit from it. You may also want to check out another post I did before called 20 best hadith to make you a better muslim.
