201. Hind, son of Khadija from her former husband, says about the Prophet (peace be upon him): "Kind of heart, he was nice and sweet-tempered. He never liked to displease or cause offence to anybody. He thanked even for trifling favours. He took whatever food was placed before him, without making any adverse remark. He never got angry for anything concerning his own person, nor did he think of taking revenge or letting down anybody, but if anyone opposed what was just and right, he used to get sore and helped the right cause with all his might." I [Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him)] forbade that a sword which has " It is not allowable for a man to keep apart from his brother for more than three days, the one turning away and the on" (Tirmidhi). (Muhammad The Ideal Prophet. by Sayyid Suliman Nadwi).

smiling than God's messenger (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him). 

(Tirmidhi)

 

 

203. Verily the creation of each one of you is brought together in his mother's belly for forty days in the form of a seed, then he is a clot of blood for a like period, then a morsel of flesh for a like period, then there is sent to him the angel who blows the breath of life into him and who is commanded about four matters (NOTE 2) to write down his means of livelihood, his life span, his actions, and whether happy or unhappy. By Allah, other than Whom there is no god, verily one of you behaves like the people of Paradise until there is but an arm's length between him and it, and that which has been written overtakes him and so he behaves like the people of Hell-fire and thus enters it; and one of you behaves like the people of Hell-fire until there is but an arm's length between him and it, and that which has been written overtakes him and so he behaves like the people of Paradise and thus enters it.(Bukhari, Muslim)

 

204.    Actions are but by intention and every man shall have but that which he

205. He who innovates something in which this matter of ours that is not of it

209. Hazrat Umar (Allah be pleased with him) said: One day while we were sitting with the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) there appeared before us a man whose clothes were exceedingly white and whose hair was exceedingly black; no signs of journeying were to be seen on him and none of us knew him. He walked and sat down by the Prophet (peace be upon him). Resting his knees against his and placing the palm of his hands on his thigh, he said: O Muhammad, tell me about Islam. The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said: Islam is to testify that there is no god but Allah and Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, to perform the prayers, to pay the zakat (NOTE 4) , to fast in Ramadan, and to make the pilgrimage to the House (NOTE 5) if you are able to do so. He said: You have spoken rightly, and we were amazed at him asking him and saying that he had spoken right. He said: Then tell me about iman (NOTE 6) . The Prophet (may the blessings and peace of Allah be upon him ) said: It is to believe in Allah, His angels, His books, His messengers and the Last Day, and to believe in divine destiny, both the good and evil thereof. He said: You have spoken rightly. He said: Then tell me about ihsan (NOTE 7) , The Prophet (may the blessings and peace of Allah be upon him ) said: It is to worship Allah as though you are seeing Him, and while you see Him not yet truly He sees you. He said then tell me about the Hour (NOTE 8) , The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: The one questioned about it knows no better than the questioner. He said: Tell me about its signs. The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: The slave-girl will give birth to her mistress (NOTE 9) and that you will see the barefooted naked, destitute herdsmen competing in constructing lofty buildings. Then he took himself off and 

I stayed for a time. Then the Prophet (may the blessings and peace of Allah be upon) said: O Umar, do you know who the questioner was? I said: Allah and hid Messenger know best. The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: It was Gabriel, who came to you to teach you your religion.(Muslim).

 

 

210.That which is lawful is plain and that which is unlawful is plain and

between the two if them are doubtful matters about which not many people know. Thus he who avoids doubtful matters clears himself in regard to his religion and his honour, but he who falls into doubtful matters falls into that which is unlawful, like the shepherd who pastures around the sanctuary, all but grazing therein. Truly every king has a sanctuary, and truly Allah's sanctuary is His prohibitions. Truly in the body there is a morsel of flesh which, if diseased, all of it is diseased. Truly it is the heart. (Bukhari, Muslim).

 

211.What I have forbidden to you, avoid; what I have ordered you [to do], do as much of it as you can. It was only their excessive questioning and their  

disagreeing with their Prophets that destroyed those who were before you.(Bukhari, Muslim).

 

 

 

212. Leave that which makes you in doubt for that which does not make you doubt.(Tirmidhi, Nasai).

scales, and Subhana 'llah [How far is Allah from every imperfection] and 

Al-hamdu lillah [Praise be to Allah] fill that which is between heaven and

 

 

earth. Prayer is light; charity is a proof; patience is illumination; and the

Quran is an argument for or against you. Everyone starts his day and is a vendor of his soul, either freeing it or bringing about its ruin.(Muslim).

 

216. I have been ordered to fight (NOTE 10) against people until they testify 

that there is no god but Allah and that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah and until he perform the prayers and pay the zakat, and if they do so, they will have gained protection from me for their lives (NOTE 11) and property, unless [they do acts that are punishable] in accordance with Islam, and their reckoning will be with Allah the Almighty. (Bukhari, Muslim).

 

 

217.Verily Allah has prescribed proficiency in all things. Thus, if you kill,

(NOTE 12) And Allah has said: "O ye who believe ! Eat of the good things wherewith We have provided you." (NOTE 13) Then the Prophet (peace be upon him) mentioned [the case of] a man who, having journeyed far, is dishevelled and dusty and who spreads out his hands to the sky [saying]: O Lord! O Lord! - while his food is unlawful, his drink unlawful, his clothing unlawful, and he is nourished unlawfully, so how can he be answered!(Muslim).

221. None of you [truly] believes until his inclination is in accordance with 

what I ((Muhammad), may the blessings and peace of Allah be upon him ) have 

 

 

brought.(Kitab al-Hujja).

 

222. Righteousness is good morality, and wrongdoing is that which wavers in your soul and which you dislike people finding out about. (Muslim).

 

 

223. Allah the Almighty has laid down religious duties, so do not neglect them; He has set boundaries, so do not overstep them; He has prohibited some things, so do not violate them; about some things He was silent out of compassion for you, not forgetfulness, so seek not after them.(Daraqutni)

224. Each person's every joint must perform a charity every day they comes up: to act justly between two people is a charity; to help a man with his mount, 

lifting him onto it or hoisting up his belongings onto it is a charity; a good word is a charity; every step you take to prayers (i.e. on your way to the mosque) is a charity and removing a harmful thing from the road is a charity. (Bukhari, Muslim).

 

225.The blood of a Muslim may not be legally spilt other than in one of three

227.Hadhrat Abu Bakr Siddique (Allah be pleased with him) narrates that the 

Prophet (peace be upon him) said: "A man who harms a Muslim and deceives him, is accursed."(Tirmidhi).

forgetfulness and for what they have done under duress. (Ibn Majah, Baihaqi).

 

229. Allah has written down the good deeds and the bad ones. Then He explained it [by saying that] he who has intended a good deed and has not done it, Allah writes it down with Himself as a full good deed, but if he intended it and has done it, Allah writes it down with Himself as from ten good deeds to seven hundred times, or many times over. But if he has intended a bad deed and has not done it, Allah writes it down with Himself as a full good deed, but if he has intended it and has done it, Allah writes it down as one bad deed.(Bukhari, Muslim).

 

 


 

 

 

230.  Do not envy one another; do not inflate prices one to another; do not hate one another; do not turn away from one another; and do not undercut one another, but be you. O servants of Allah, brothers. A Muslim is the brother of a Muslim: he neither oppresses him nor does he fail him, he neither lies to him nor does he hold him in contempt. Piety is right here-and the Prophet (peace be upon him) pointed to his breast three times. It is evil enough for a man to hold his brother Muslim in contempt. The whole of a Muslim for another is inviolable: his blood, his property and his honour.(Muslim).

 

 

 

231. Some of the Companions (NOTE 17) of the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon

 

him) said to the Prophet:(peace be upon him) O Messenger of Allah, the affluent have made off with the rewards: they pray as we pray, they fast as we fast, and they give away in charity the superfluity of their wealth. The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: Has not Allah made things for you to give away in charity? Truly every tasbiha (NOTE 18) is a charity every takbira (NOTE 19) is a charity, every tahmida (NOTE 20) is a charity and every tahlia (NOTE 21) is a charity; to enjoin a good action is a charity, to forbid an evil action is a charity and in a sexual act each of you there are a charity. They said: O Messenger of Allah, when one of us fulfils his sexual desire will he have some reward for that? The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: Do you [not] think that were he to act upon it unlawfully he wold be sinning? Likewise, if he has acted upon it lawfully he will have a reward.(Muslim).

232. Allah the Almighty has said: Whosoever shows enmity to a friend of Mine, I shall be at war with him. My servant does not draw near to Me with anything more loved by Me than the religious duties I have imposed upon him, and My servant continues to draw near to Me with supererogatory works so that I shall love him. When I love him, I am his hearing with which he hears, his seeing with which he sees, his hands with which he strikes and his foot with which he walks. Were he to ask [something] of Me, I would surely give it to him; and were he to ask me for refuge, I would surely grant him it.(Bukhari).

(Forty Hadith translated by. Ezzedin Ibrahim and Denys Johnson-Davies).

 

233.The son of Umar (may Allah be pleased with them both) use to say: At evening do not expect [to live till] morning, and at morning do not expect [to live till] evening. Take from your health for your illness and from your life for your death (NOTE 22). (Bukhari).

 

 

234  A man came to the Prophet (may the blessings and peace of Allah be upon him

) and said: O Messenger of Allah, direct me to an act which, if I do it, [will cause] Allah to love me and people to love me. The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: Renounce the world and Allah will love you, and renounce what people possess and people will love you. (Ibn Majah).
