In Sunnī Islām, the Hadith of Gabriel (ḥadīth Jibrīl) is the single most important Hadīth (report on the words and actions of Muhammad). Its narrative contains the best summary of the core of Islam: the "Five Pillars of Islam", the "Six Articles of Faith" and Ihsan, or "doing what is beautiful". This Hadīth is found in both the Ṣaḥīḥ al-Bukhārī and the Ṣaḥīḥ Muslim.
