Of The Holy Prophet (S.A.W.)
- Know that in the body there is a bit of flesh; when it is sound, the whole body is sound, and when it is corrupt the whole body is corrupt. Know it is the heart.
- A Muslim is he from whose tongue and hand Muslims are safe, and a Muhajir (lit, one who flies from his home) is he who forsakes what Allaah has forbidden.
- The word of wisdom is the lost property of the believer, so wherever he finds it he has a better right to it.
- The key to paradise is prayer and the key to prayer is purification.
- The tooth-brush purifies the mouth and is a means of seeking the pleasure of Allaah.
- Taking a bath on Friday is incumbent on every one who has attained puberty and one should use the tooth-brush and scent if he can find it.
- Whoever omits three Friday services making light of it, Allaah sets a seal on his heart.
- On every bone of the fingers charity is incumbent every day: One assists a man in riding his beast or in lifting his provisions to the back of the animal, this is charity; and a good word and every step which one takes in walking over to prayer is charity; and showing the way to another is charity.
- Every good deed is charity, and it is a good deed that you meet your brother with a cheerful countenance and that you pour water from your bucket into the vessel of your brother.
- If one of your should take his rope and bring a bundle of firewood on his back and then sell it, with which Allaah should save his honour, it is better for him than that he should beg of people whether they give him or do not give him.
- By Him in Whose Grip is my soul, I love that I should be killed in the way of Allaah, then brought to life, then killed again, then brought to life, then killed again.
- I have been commanded that I should fight these people till they bear witness that there is no God but Allaah and keep up prayer and pay Zakaat. When they do this, their blood and their property shall be safe with me except as Islam requires, and their reckoning is with Allaah.
- A woman is married on account of four things: on account of her wealth, and on account of the nobility of her family, and her beauty, and on account of her character, so attain success with the one possessing nobility of character.
- With Allaah, the most detestable of all things permitted is divorce.
- Whatever woman asks for divorce from her husband without any harm, the sweet odour of paradise shall be forbidden to her.
- Allaah says:
"There are three persons whose adversary in dispute, I shall be on the day of resurrection: a person who makes a promise in My name, then acts unfaithfully, and a person who sells a free person then devours his price, and a person who employs a servant and receives fully the labour due to him, then he does not pay his remuneration."
- O Allah! I seek refuge in Thee from sin and from being debt. Whenever a man is in debt he speaks and tell lies, and he promises and breaks the promise.
- Delaying the payment of debt by a well-to-do person is injustice:
- The Messenger of Allaah cursed the usurer and the man who pays usury and the writer of the transactions and the two witnesses thereof, and he said:
"They are alike."
- Give gifts to one another, for gifts take away rancor.
- Every drink that intoxicates is prohibited.
- Do not wear silk or silk brocade, and do not drink in vessels of gold and silver, and do not eat in bowls made of them; for they are for them in this life and for us in the next.
- When the servant brings to one of you his food, then if he does not make him sit with him (to eat at the same table), let him give a morsel or two morsels, for he has laboured to prepare it.
- Eat together and do not eat separately, for the blessing is with the company.
- Whomsoever it pleases that his subsistence should be made ample to him or that his life should be lengthened, let him be kind to his relatives.
- A Muslim is the brother of a Muslim; he does him no injustice, nor does he leave him alone (to be victim of another's injustice) and whoever does the needful for his brother, Allaah does the needful for him; and whoever removes the distress of a Muslim, Allaah removes from him a distress out of the distresses of the day of resurrection; and whoever covers the fault of a Muslim, Allaah will cover his sins on the day of resurrection.
- Whoever believes in Allaah and the latter day he should not harm his neighbour; and whoever believes in Allaah and the latter day, he should honour his guest.
- One who manages the affairs of the widow and the poor man is like the man who exerts himself hard in the way of Allaah, or the one who stands up for prayer in the night and fasts in the day.
- "I and the man who brings up a orphan will be in paradise like this:"
and he pointed with his two fingers, the forefinger and the middle finger.
- Allaah has no mercy on him who is not merciful to men.
- Be careful of your duty to Allaah regarding these dumb animals: ride them while they are in a fit condition, and eat them while they are in a fit condition.
- A Muslim owes to a Muslim six (duties to be bestowed liberally) - he should offer him salutation when he meets him, and he should accept when he invites him, and he should pray for him when he invites him, and he should pray for him when he sneezes, and he should visit him when he is sick, and he should follow his bier when he dies, and he should love for him what he loves for himself.
- Every one of you is a ruler and every one of you shall be questioned about those under his rule: the king is a ruler and he shall be questioned about his subjects; and the man is a ruler in his family and he shall be questioned about those under his care: and the woman is the ruler of the house of her husband, and she shall be questioned about those under her care; and the servant is a ruler so far as the property of his master is concerned and he shall be questioned about that which is entrusted to him.
- To hear and obey (the authorities) is binding, so long as one is not commanded to disobey (God); when one is commanded to disobey (God); he shall not hear or obey.
- The most excellent striving in the path of Allaah is the uttering of the truth in the presence of an unjust ruler.
- There is not a man whom Allaah grants to rule people, then he does not manage their affairs for their good but he will not smell the sweet odour of paradise.
- Do not hate one another and do not be jealous of one another and do not boycott one another and be servants of Allaah as brethren; and it is not lawful for a Muslim that he should sever his relations with his brother for more than three days.
- There shall be no envy but (emulate) two: the person whom Allaah has given wealth and the power to spend it in the service of Truth, and the person whom Allaah has granted knowledge of things and he judges by it and teaches it to others.
- The signs of the hypocrite are three: when he speaks he lies; and when he makes a promise, he breaks it; and when he is charged with a trust, he is unfaithful.
- Whoever offers prayers as we do and turns his face to our Qiblah and eats the animal slaughtered by us, he is a Muslim for whom is the covenant of Allaah and the covenant of the Messenger of Allaah; so do not violate Allaah's covenant.
