So I understand that the word, “hadith” is taken to mean the teachings of the Prophet PBUH, but it’s literal translation is “statement.” When did the phrase start to refer to the actions/words of the Prophet? Did the Prophet ever hear the phrase?

I’m most curious to know if it was developed before or after the prophet.
