Translating is so easy...

especially with facilities like Google Translate :D

Then you can translate stuff like the hadeeth about the prohibition of wailing

قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه و سلم ليس منا من ضرب الخدود و شق الجيوب ودعا بدعوى الجاهلية

and get something like this:

"cheeks hit the pockets of the building"


*The meaning of the hadeeth is: the Messenger of Allah (sAas) said: Whoever hits his cheeks, rips his pockets (clothes) and curses with a curse of the time of ignorance, is not one of us.
