A hadith is one of various reports describing the words, actions, or habits of the Islamic prophet Muhammad. The term comes from Arabic meaning a "report", "account" or "narrative". Hadith are second only to the Quran in developing Islamic jurisprudence, and regarded as important tools for understanding the Quran and commentaries (tafsir) written on it. Some important elements of traditional Islam, such as the five salat prayers, are mentioned in hadith.
One such Hadith is:
Narrated (Abu Huraria) Allah's Messenger (PBUH) said, Allah says, If My servant intends to do a bad deed then (angels) do not write it unless he does it: if he does it: Then write it as one sin, but if he refrains from doing it for My sake, then write it as a good deed. If he intends to do a good deed, but does not do it then write it as one good deed. If he does it, write for him ten good deeds or up to seven hundred good deeds."

Hadith Qudsii is defined as “divinely inspired” reports from the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) where he indicates that what he is stating are the words of ALLAH (Highly Glorified Is He).
A few examples from this collection are:
On the authority of Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) from the Prophet (ﷺ), who said:
Allah (mighty and sublime be He) says: Fasting is Mine and it is I who give reward for it. [A man] gives up his sexual passion, his food and his drink for my sake. Fasting is like a shield, and he who fasts has two joys: a joy when he breaks his fast and a joy when he meets his Lord. The change in the breath of the mouth of him who fasts is better in Allah's estimation than the smell of musk. It was related by al-Bukhari (also by Muslim, Malik, at-Tirmidhi, an-Nasa'i and Ibn Majah).
On the authority of Abu Harayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) from the Prophet (ﷺ), who said:
Allah (mighty and sublime be He) said: Spend (on charity), O son of Adam, and I shall spend on you. It was related by al-Bukhari (also by Muslim).
