Bismillahir-Rahmanir-Rahim
41.33

41.33. and who is better In speech than He who [says: "My Lord is Allh (believes In his Oneness),"
and Then stands Straight (acts upon his Order), and] invites (men) to Allh (Islmic Monotheism),
and does righteous deeds, and says: "I am one of the Muslims."
1) The best of books ever is al Quran: Allahs guidance for mankind and a healing and that
which restores faith and that which is full of hikmah and gives us the criteria to judge
the right from the wrong. Subhan-Allahi wa bihamdihi, Subhan-Allahil-Azim
2) This instant reference manual is nothing but making notes from it. Quran is like a sea of
pearls. Every time one dives into it one comes up with pearls.
3) This reference manual also quotes from the Sunnah of our beloved prophet of Allah
Muhammad Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam which is wisdom taught by Allah swt to him and from
him to us
4) The manual is a compilation of various topics, ten in all, from various existing sources
and existing notes or otherwise .may Allah swt bless the countless Muslims who have
written extensively in the service of Allahs deen.
5) The intention behind this manual is not be a scholarly work which it is not rather inspire
the readers to strive for more knowledge of Allahs deen and use it to serve mankind.
Dua we need to make always is ... . 20:114: "..My Lord! Increase
me in knowledge."
Narrated Muawiya: I heard The Prophet (pbuh) saying, "If Allah wants to do good to Person, He
makes him comprehend the religion. I am just a distributor, but the grant is from Allah. (And remember)
that this nation (true Muslims) will keep on following Allah's teachings strictly & they will not be harmed
by any one going on a different path till Allah's order (Day of Judgment) is established." [Bukhari]
6) Dawah is a must even if it be knowing one verse
The Prophet (sal Allaahu alayhi wa sallam) said,
((Propagate from me, even if it be one ayah (verse)(bukhari)
Many scholars now agree its Fard al-ayn means a personally obligatory religious duty in little or
large measure upon each of us.
7) This instant reference manual thus lays the foundation of knowledge for a daee and encourages
him/her to seek more and build upon whats in these notes with further studies from the right
Quran and Sunnah scholars and scholarly works. The best book to study once again is al Quran.
8) What is the instant reference manual about?
a) We had in the dawah training programmers held taught the basic ten profiles of a madhu(
one who is invited to Islam)
b) These were 1) the agnostic 2) the atheist 3) the evolution theory propagator4) the
modernist & the apologetic 5) sincere seeker of truth6)the diehard followers of other
religions 7)the fence sitter8) the hater and enemy of Muslims and Islam 9)misguided
youth/women/the ill 10) Muslims on shirk.
c) The ten topics covered in this manual are 1) tawheed2) risalah3) the inimitability of
The Quran 4) creation versus evolution 5) pillars of Islam 6) akhirah 7) akhlaq and adab in
Islam 8) Islam FAQs 9) comparative religion 10) stories of the reverts
This manual is to thus help the daee address the various profiles as above with wisdom and
beautiful preaching. Quran 29: 46. And argue not with the people of the Scripture (Jews and
Christians), unless it be in (a way) that is better (with good words and in good manner, inviting
them to Islamic Monotheism with His Verses), except with such of them as do wrong, and say (to
them): "We believe in that which has been revealed to us and revealed to you; our Ilah (God) and
your Ilah (God) is One (i.e. Allah), and to Him we have submitted (as Muslims)."
d) We thus need to study the Quran...The sunnah and to teach what little or more we may
have acquired from such a study and we need to set our heart into it..As ibn qayyim put it
Seek out your heart in three situations: - When you are listening to the Qur'an -When you
are part of a gathering of remembrance -When you are alone and away from the world and
its distractions. If you cannot find your heart in these three situations, then ask Allah to
bestow upon you a heart, for indeed you are bereft of one."
But remember,
Prophet (saw) as reported by Jabir (ra) who said "Do not acquire knowledge in order to compete with
the scholars, nor to argue with the ignorant, nor to gain mastery over the gathering. Since whoever does
this then: the fire, the fire". (Abu Dawud, 3/3656)
It is reported that Abu Hazim Al-Ashja'i (d. 100H; companion of Abu Hurairah) said: "If you find yourself
in a time when speech is accepted as knowledge and knowledge is accepted as deeds (instead of putting
it into practice), then you are in the worst time and with the worst people."Abu Bakr Al-Daynuri, Al-
Mujalasah wa Jawahir Al-Ilm,

e) Care has been taken to quote properly the references from Allahs book and authentic
Ahadith; any errors please point it out to the Allah Alone research team. All good is from
Allah swt and all mistakes are from us.
2:127. ".Our Lord! Accept (this service) from us. Verily! You are the All-Hearer, the All- knower
26:83. "O my Lord! Bestow wisdom on me, and join me with the righteous;

6.162. Say (O Muhammad ): "Verily, My Salt (prayer), My sacrifice, My living, and My dying are for
Allh, the Lord of the 'Alamn (mankind, jinns and All that exists)

Allahumma Inni Asaluka hubbaka Wa hubba Man Yuhibbuka Wa hubba 3malin
Yuqarribuni Ila hubbik / O Allah, I ask You for Your Love, and the love of whoever loves
You and the love of deeds that will bring me closer to Your Love

Legacy of dawah
From the time...Allah swt announced


3:104.Let there arise out of you a group of people inviting to all that is good (Islam), enjoining Al-
Ma'ruf (i.e. Islamic Monotheism and all that Islam orders one to do) and forbidding Al-Munkar
(polytheism and disbelief and all that Islam has forbidden). And it is they who are the successful.
And the prophet .s.a..s asked some 1400 plus years ago of those assembled to hear him during
the last khutbah ..
O People, lend me an attentive ear, for I know not whether after this year, I shall ever be amongst you
again. Therefore listen to what I am saying to you very carefully and TAKE THESE WORDS TO THOSE
WHO COULD NOT BE PRESENT HERE TODAY ( last sermon..bukhari)
And subhanAllah, they did!
And Islam spread and spread overcoming false gods and religions, nations,
kings,tribes,armies,enemies,rulers,hollow and shallow traditions and cultures, Allahs deen
was to overcome all.


9: 33. It is He Who has sent His Messenger (Muhammad ) with guidance and the religion of truth
(Islam), to make it superior over all religions even though the Mushrikun (polytheists, pagans,
idolaters, disbelievers in the Oneness of Allah) hate (it).
48:28


48:28 He it is Who has sent His Messenger (Muhammad ) with guidance and the religion of truth
(Islam), that He may make it (Islam) superior over all religions. And All-Sufficient is Allah as a Witness
So on foot or on camel backs or in ships that sailed across the seas and oceans or armies that
overcame those that resisted the truth and traders and scholars, men ,women and the young
spread Islam to all parts of the world due to which we are Muslims today, no less than 1.6
billion. Alhamdulillah.
So dont worry, the Muslims have had a great success given to them by Allah swt whenever the
Muslims the pious predecessors and our forefathers have been sincere in their efforts of
spreading His deen. This is the legacy of dawah we have inherited.
So the message is in our hands today, its now up to us to spread further the mission of Allahs
messenger and take the message to every nook and corner we can.
It is not us who guide but Allah swt guides whom He wills. Ours is to deliver the message.
6: 125. And whomsoever Allah wills to guide, He opens his breast to Islam, and whomsoever He
wills to send astray, He makes his breast closed and constricted, as if he is climbing up to the sky.
Thus Allah puts the wrath on those who believe not.
And only those of us will succeed who :
Sura al- asr
1. By Al-'Asr (the time).
2. Verily! Man is in loss,
3. Except those who believe (in Islamic Monotheism) and do righteous good deeds, and recommend
one another to the truth (i.e. order one another to perform all kinds of good deeds (Al-
Ma'ruf)which Allah has ordained, and abstain from all kinds of sins and evil deeds (Al-
Munkar)which Allah has forbidden), and recommend one another to patience (for the sufferings,
harms, and injuries which one may encounter in Allah's Cause during preaching His religion of
Islamic Monotheism or Jihad, etc.).

Why akhlaq?
Moral virtues in man gain him eternal happiness, while moral corruption leads him to everlasting
wretchedness. It is therefore necessary for man to purge and purify himself of all evil traits of character
and adorn his soul with all forms of ethical and moral virtues. Moreover, without having cleansed
oneself of all evil habits, it would be impossible to nourish and develop moral virtues in oneself. The
human soul can be compared to a mirror in this regard. If we wish to see something beautiful reflected
in a mirror, we must first cleanse the mirror, so that dust and dirt do not disfigure the reflection. Any
attempt to obey Allah swt commands would be fruitful and successful only when one has purified
himself of evil habits and tendencies; otherwise, it would be like putting on jewels on a dirty and
unwashed body. When self-purification has been pursued and one is rid of evil habits of thought,
speech and action, then the soul is ready to receive the unlimited grace of Allah azza wa jal. Such
reception is the ultimate reason for which man was created.
On Abu Musa, may Allah be pleased with him, said, "They said, 'Messenger of Allah, whose Islam is
best?' He said, 'The one from whose tongue and hands the Muslims are safe.' ( Bukhari)
It was related from 'Abdullah ibn 'Amr, may Allah be pleased with him, that the Prophet, may Allah bless
him and grant him peace, said, "A Muslim is the one from whose tongue and hand the Muslims are safe.
An emigrant (muhajir) is someone who abandons what Allah has forbidden." (Book of belief bukhari)
The hadith below highlights what traits are endearing to Allah swt?
Bukhari :: Book 2 :: Volume 24 :: Hadith 504
Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet (p.b.u.h) said, "Seven people will be shaded by Allah under His shade
on the day when there will be no shade except His. They are:
(1) a just ruler;
(2) a young man who has been brought up in the worship of Allah, (i.e. worship Allah (Alone) sincerely
from his childhood),
(3) a man whose heart is attached to the mosque (who offers the five compulsory congregational
prayers in the mosque);
(4) two persons who love each other only for Allah's sake and they meet and part in Allah's cause only;
(5) a man who refuses the call of a charming woman of noble birth for an illegal sexual intercourse with
her and says: I am afraid of Allah;
(6) a person who practices charity so secretly that his left hand does not know what his right hand has
given (i.e. nobody knows how much he has given in charity).
(7) a person who remembers Allah in seclusion and his eyes get flooded with tears."
So we should study akhlaq with all of sincerity and earnestness with the sole aim of making it part of
our words, deeds and actions.
TOPIC 7: AKHLAQ AND ADAB

7.1 COMMANDS ON AKHLAQ AND ADAB IN THE QURAN
Who is a believer?
Who fear Allah and put all their trust in Allah and have their faith strengthened by the ayat


8:2 The believers are only those who, when Allah is mentioned, feel a fear in their hearts and
when His Verses (this Qur'an) are recited unto them, they (i.e. the Verses) increase their Faith;
and they put their trust in their Lord (Alone)
39:23. Allah has revealed (from time to time) the most beautiful Message in the form of a Book,
consistent with itself, (yet) repeating (its teaching in various aspects): the skins of those who fear
their Lord tremble thereat; then their skins and their hearts do soften to the celebration of Allah.s
praises. Such is the guidance of Allah. He guides therewith whom He pleases, but such as Allah
leaves to stray, can have none to guide.
Who fall down in sajda and are not proud 32:15


32:15 Only those believe in Our Ayaat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.),
who, when they are reminded of them, fall down prostrate, and glorify the Praises of their Lord,
and they are not proud.
They are protectors of one another
9:71



9:71. The believers, men and women, are Auliya' (helpers, supporters, friends, protectors) of one
another, they enjoin (on the people) Al-Ma'ruf(i.e. Islamic Monotheism and all that Islam orders
one to do), and forbid (people) from Al-Munkar(i.e. polytheism and disbelief of all kinds, and all
that Islam has forbidden); they perform As-Salat (Iqamat-as-Salat) and give the Zakat, and obey
Allah and His Messenger. Allah will have His Mercy on them. Surely Allah is All-Mighty, All-Wise.
Who offer salah with full submission and avoid haram and vain talking
23.2-5






23:2.Those who offer their Salat (prayers) with all solemnity and full submissiveness.
23:3. And those who turn away from Al-Laghw (dirty, false, evil vain talk, falsehood, and all that
Allah has forbidden).
23:4. And those who pay the Zakat .
23:5. And those who guard their chastity (i.e. private parts, from illegal sexual acts)
Those who strive in the way of Allah
4:75



4: 75 Not equal are those believers who sit (at home) and receive no hurt, and those who strive
and fight in the cause of Allah with their goods and their persons. Allah hath granted a grade
higher to those who strive and fight with their goods and persons than to those who sit (at home).
Unto all (in Faith) Hath Allah promised good: But those who strive and fight Hath He distinguished
above those who sit (at home) by a special reward,-
9:20. Those who believe, and suffer exile and strive with might and main, in Allah.s cause, with
their goods and their persons, have the highest rank in the sight of Allah. they are the people who
will achieve (salvation).



No sects for a believer and are united
3:103



3:103.And hold fast, all of you together, to the Rope of Allah (i.e. this Qur'an), and be not divided
among yourselves, and remember Allah's Favour on you, for you were enemies one to another but He
joined your hearts together, so that, by His Grace, you became brethren (in Islamic Faith), and you
were on the brink of a pit of Fire, and He saved you from it. Thus Allah makes His Ayat(proofs,
evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.,) clear to you, that you may be guided.
6: 159.Verily, those who divide their religion and break up into sects (all kinds of religious sects), you
have no concern in them in the least. Their affair is only with Allah, Who then will tell them what they
used to do.
8:46


8:46 And obey Allah and His Messenger, and do not dispute (with one another) lest you lose courage
and your strength depart, and be patient. Surely, Allah is with those who are As-Sabirin(the patient
ones, etc.).
We are Muslims!
22:78. And strive hard in Allah's Cause as you ought to strive (with sincerity and with all your efforts
that His Name should be superior). He has chosen you (to convey His Message of Islamic Monotheism to
mankind by inviting them to His religion, Islam), and has not laid upon you in religion any hardship, it
is the religion of your father Ibrahim (Abraham) (Islamic Monotheism). It is He (Allah) Who has named
you Muslims both before and in this (the Qur'an), that the Messenger (Muhammad ) may be a witness
over you and you be witnesses over mankind! So perform As-Salat (Iqamat-as-Salat), give Zakat
and hold fast to Allah [i.e. have confidence in Allah, and depend upon Him in all your affairs] He is
your Maula (Patron, Lord, etc.), what an Excellent Maula (Patron, Lord, etc.) and what an Excellent
Helper!

Speak the truth always
33:70

33.70. O You who believe! keep Your duty to Allh and fear him, and speak (Always) the truth
Say words that are best,beware of shaitan
17:53


17.53. and Say to My slaves (i.e. the true believers of Islmic Monotheism) that they should (only)
Say those Words that are the best. (because) Shaitn (Satan) Verily, sows disagreements among
them. surely, Shaitn (Satan) is to man a plain enemy.
Do not follow the footsteps of shaitan
24:21



24:21. O ye who believe! follow not Satan's footsteps: if any will follow the footsteps of Satan, he will
(but) command what is shameful and wrong: and were it not for the grace and mercy of Allah on you,
not one of you would ever have been pure: but Allah doth purify whom He pleases: and Allah is One
Who hears and knows (all things).
Dont be proud, nor walk in insolence or be a boaster
31:18


31.18. "And turn not Your face away from men with pride, nor walk In insolence through the
earth. Verily, Allh likes not each arrogant boaster.
Be soft and moderate in speech
31:19


31.19. "And be moderate (or show no insolence) In Your walking, and lower Your voice. Verily, the
harshest of All voices is the voice (braying) of the ass."
Mix not Truth with falsehood
2:42

2.42. and mix not Truth with falsehood, nor conceal the Truth [i.e. Muhammad Sal-Allaahu
'alayheWaSallam is Allh's Messenger and his qualities are written In Your Scriptures, the Taurt
(Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel)] while You know (the truth) .
Do justice with the orphan, weigh in full, speak truth always
6.152. "And come not near to the orphan's property, except to improve it, until He (or she) attains
the age of full strength; and give full measure and full weight with justice. we burden not any
person, but that which He can bear. and whenever You give Your word (i.e. judge between men or
give evidence, etc.), Say the Truth even if a near relative is concerned, and fulfill the Covenant of
Allh, This He commands you, that You may remember.
Avoid vain talking
23:3

23.3. and those who turn away from Al-Laghw (dirty, false, evil vain talk, falsehood, and All that
Allh has forbidden).
The Prophet, peace upon him, mentioned, Whoever believes in Allah and the Last Day let him speak
well or remain silent. (Bukhari,)
Do not spend time with those who talk evil or do evil
25:72
25:72. And those who do not witness falsehood, and if they pass by some evil play or evil talk, they
pass by it with dignity
Beware of the wrong use of social media networking sites
It is a fact social media sites can lead to lots of vain talking,playing about ,wasting time and explosion
of unwanted relationships which are unislamic in nature and intent,unwanted unregulated
interactions of the sexes, the islamic guidelines are :
Quran guides
23:3 And those who turn away from Al-Laghw (dirty, false, evil vain talk, falsehood, and all that Allah
has forbidden).
70.42.So leave them to plunge in vain talk and play about, until they encounter that Day of theirs
which they have been promised!- (The Noble Quran, 70:42)"
74.45."(The sinners will say 'But we used to talk vanities with vain talkers;'
5.2.Help you one another in righteousness and piety, but help you not one another in sin and
rancor]
the hadith of ibn Abbas radiAllahuanhu reported in the mustadrak of Al-Haakim, musnad Imam Ahmad,
and others, with an authentic chain of narration. In this hadith the Prophet salAllaahualayhiwasallam
said to a man while he was advising him:

"Take advantage of five matters before five other matters: your youth, before you become old; and your
health, before you fall sick; and your richness, before you become poor; and your free time before you
become busy; and your life, before your death."
The Prophet, peace upon him, said, All of the speech of the Child of Adam will be held against him, it
will not be in his favor; except commanding good, forbidding wrong, or the remembrance of Allah.
[Tirmidhi, #2412]
The Prophet, peace upon him, mentioned, Do not speak excessively in other than the remembrance of
Allah, for verily excessive speech in other than the remembrance of Allah hardens the heart, and the
heart another hadith says ..most distanced from Allah is the hard heart.
[Tirmidhi, #2411]
The example of a righteous and evil companion is like one who carries perfume and another who is a
blacksmith. As for the one who carries perfume, he will either give you some perfume, you might buy
some, or [at least] you will find a pleasing scent with him. As for the blacksmith, either he (the
blacksmith) will burn his clothes, or you will find a hideous odor from him.
[Bukhari #1995 & Muslim #2628]
So can we say from above that the wrong use of social media sites fits into the verses and ahadith
above?

7.2 THE BASIC COMMANDMENTS
6.151. Say (O Muhammad ): "Come, I will recite what Your Lord has prohibited You from: join not
anything In Worship with him; be good and dutiful to Your parents; kill not Your Children because
of poverty - we provide sustenance for You and for them; come not near to Al-Fawhish (shameful
sins, illegal sexual intercourse, etc.) whether committed openly or secretly, and kill not anyone
whom Allh has forbidden, except for a just Cause (according to Islmic law). This He has
commanded You that You may understand.
Repress anger and pardon much to be of al muhsinun
3:134


3.134. those who spend [in Allh's Cause - deeds of charity, alms, etc.] In prosperity and In
adversity, who repress anger, and who Pardon men; Verily, Allh loves Al-Muhsinn (the
gooddoers).
Practice sabr..Combine salat and sabr..a great virtue
2:153

2: 153.O you who believe! Seek help in patience and As-Salat (the prayer). Truly! Allah is with
As-Sabirin(the patient ones, etc.).
6.34.Rejected were the messengers before you, and they continued to practiseSabr while they
were being rejected and persecuted,untilOur help reached them."

11.115."And practice Sabr, certainly Allaah does not let the reward of the Muhsineen be lost."
14.12.And why should we not rely upon Allaah while He indeed has shown us our ways? And we
shall certainly practice Sabr on the persecution you inflict on us."
31.17.O my son! Establish Salaah, enjoin good, forbid evil, and bear with Sabr whatever befalls on
you, indeed, that is quite a resolute, high calibre of the tasks."
And when afflicted with any calamitysay
2:156

2:156Who, when afflicted with calamity, say: "Truly! To Allah we belong and truly, to Him we shall
return."
Dont think you can reach the height of the mountains
17:37


17.37. and walk not on the earth with conceit and arrogance. Verily, You can neither rend nor
penetrate the earth, nor can You attain a stature like the mountains In height.
Practice humility and sedateness
25:63


25.63. and the slaves of the Most Beneficent (Allh) are those who walk on the earth In humility
and sedateness, and when the foolish address them (with bad words) they reply back with mild
Words of gentleness.
Avoid great sins. Small sins Allah will forgive.do no covet what others have
4:31-32
4.31. if You avoid the great sins which You are forbidden to do, we shall remit from You Your
(small) sins, and admit You to a Noble Entrance (i.e. Paradise).
4.32. and wish not for the things In which Allh has made some of You to excel others. for men
there is reward for what they have earned, (and likewise) for women there is reward for what they
have earned, and ask Allh of his Bounty. surely, Allh is ever AllKnower of everything.
Do not fall prey to slander.ask for witnesses
24:12-13
24.12. why then, did not the believers, men and women, when You heard it (the slander) think
good of their own people and say: "This (charge) is an obvious lie?"
24.13. why did they not produce four witnesses? since they (the slanderers) have not produced
witnesses! Then with Allh they are the liars.
Verify news brought forth by a wicked person
49:6


49.6. O You who believe! if a rebellious evil person comes to You with a news, verify it, lest You
harm people In ignorance, and afterwards You become regretful to what You have done.
Be careful of what you know little or have no knowledge of
17: 36. And pursue not that of which thou hast no knowledge; for every act of hearing, or of seeing or
of (feeling in) the heart will be enquired into (on the Day of Reckoning).
Ask Allah for increase in knowledge
20:114


20.114. Then High above All be Allh, the true King. and be not In haste (O Muhammad ) with the
Qur'n before its Revelation is completed to you, and say: "My Lord! increase Me In knowledge."
Belivers are brothers. reconcile one with the other
49:10


49.10. the believers are nothing else than brothers (in Islmic religion). so make reconciliation
between Your brothers, and fear Allh, that You may receive Mercy.
Dont laugh or make fun of one another or call one another nicknames
49.11. O You who believe! let not a group scoff at another group, it may be that the latter are
better than the former; nor let (some) women scoff at other women, it may be that the latter are
better than the former, nor defame one another, nor insult one another by nicknames. How bad is
it, to insult one's brother after having faith [i.e. to call Your Muslim brother (a faithful believer) as:
"O sinner", or "O wicked", etc.]. and Whosoever does not repent, Then such are indeed Zlimn
(wrong-doers, etc.).
Avoid suspicion, backbiting, gossip etc
49.12. O You who believe! avoid much suspicions, indeed some suspicions are sins. and spy not,
neither backbite one another. would one of You like to eat the flesh of his dead brother? You
would hate it (so hate backbiting) .and fear Allh. Verily, Allh is the one who accepts repentance,
Most Merciful.
Return a greeting with a equal or better one
4:86


4.86. when You are greeted with a greeting, greet In return with what is better than it, or (at
least) return it equally. Certainly, Allh is ever a Careful account Taker of All things.
Some social rules
24.61. there is no restriction on the blind, nor any restriction on the lame, nor any restriction on
the sick, nor on yourselves, if You eat from Your houses, or the houses of Your fathers, or the
houses of Your mothers, or the houses of Your brothers, or the houses of Your sisters, or the
houses of Your father's brothers, or the houses of Your father's sisters, or the houses of Your
mother's brothers, or the houses of Your mother's sisters, or (from that) whereof You hold keys, or
(from the house) of a friend. no sin on You whether You eat together or apart. but when You enter
the houses, greet one another with a greeting from Allh (i.e. say: As-Salmu 'Alaikum - peace be
on you) blessed and good. Thus Allh makes clear the Ayt (these Verses or Your religious Symbols
and signs, etc.) to You that You may understand.

24.27. O You who believe! enter not houses other than Your own, until You have asked permission
and greeted those In them, that is better for you, In order that You may remember

7.3 FUNDAMENTALS OF BEING A MUSLIM
4:36




4.36. Worship Allh and join none with Him In worship, and do good to parents, kinsfolk, orphans,
Al-Maskin (the poor), the neighbour who is near of kin, the neighbour who is a stranger, the
companion by Your side, the wayfarer (you meet), and those (slaves) whom Your Right hands
possess. Verily, Allh does not like such as are proud and boastful;
Spend in the way of Allah
2.262. those who spend their wealth In the Cause of Allh, and do not follow up their gifts with
reminders of their generosity or with injury, their reward is with their Lord. on them shall be no
fear, nor shall they grieve.

76.9

76.9. (saying): "We feed You seeking Allh's Countenance only. we wish for no Reward, nor thanks
from you.

2.261


2:261. The likeness of those who spend their wealth in the Way of Allah, is as the likeness
of a grain (of corn); it grows seven ears, and each ear has a hundred grains. Allah gives
manifold increase to whom He pleases. And Allah is All-Sufficient for His creatures' needs,
All-Knower.
A kind word spoken is better than charity followed by injury
2:263 kind words and forgiving of faults are better than Sadaqah (charity) followed by injury. And
Allah is Rich (Free of all needs) and He is Most-Forbearing.
Even a smile is charity..smile and see the doors open
prophet Muhammed peace be upon him said: "Your smile for your brother is charity. Your removal of
stones, thorns or bones from the paths of people is charity. Your guidance of a person who is lost is
charity" (Bukhari)
Help one another in piety not in sin
5:2


5:2... help You one another In AlBirr and AtTaqwa (virtue, righteousness and piety); but do not
help one another In sin and transgression. and fear Allh. Verily, Allh is Severe In punishment.
Allah is full of vast forgivness but there are conditions
53.32. those who avoid great sins (See the Qur'n, Verses: 6:152,153) and Al-Fawhish (illegal
sexual intercourse, etc.) except the small faults, Verily, Your Lord is of Vast Forgiveness. He knows
You well when He created You from the earth (Adam), and when You were fetuses In Your
mothers' wombs. so ascribe not purity to yourselves. He knows best Him who fears Allh and keep
his duty to Him [i.e. those who are Al-Muttaqn.
Enjoin piety but dont forget to practice it yourself
2:44

2.44. Enjoin You Al-Birr (piety and righteousness and each and Every act of obedience to Allh) on
the people and You forget (to practise it) yourselves, while You recite the Scripture [the Taurt
(Torah)]! Have You Then no sense?

Save yourself and your family from the fire
66:6


66.6. O You who believe! ward off from yourselves and Your families a Fire (Hell) whose fuel is
men and stones, over which are (appointed) angels stern (and) severe, who disobey not, (from
executing) the commands they receive from Allh, but do that which they are commanded.
Live with love and affection with your wives/ spouse
30.21


30: 21.And among His Signs is this, that He created for you wives from among yourselves, that you
may find repose in them, and He has put between you affection and mercy. Verily, in that are
indeed signs for a people who reflect.
Do Dua for virtuous spouse
25:74. And those who say: Our Lord! Bestow on us from our wives and our offspring the comfort
of our eyes, and make us leaders of the Muttaqoon (the pious).
The Prophet Muhammad (SAWS) was reported to have said: 'The most perfect Muslim in the matter of
faith is one who has excellent behavior; and the best among you are those who behave best towards
their wives"
(From Mishkat al-Masabih, No. 0278(R) Transmitted by Tirmidhi).
Ibn 'Umar reported that the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, "All of you are
shepherds and each of you is responsible for his flock. A man is the shepherd of the people of his house
and he is responsible. A woman is the shepherd of the house of her husband and she is responsible.
Each of you is a shepherd and each is responsible for his flock."
(bukhari)
Be pure in thoughts and words. Pure actions lead to pure companionship
24.26


24: 26. Women impure are for men impure, and men impure for women impure and women of purity
are for men of purity, and men of purity are for women of purity: these are not affected by what
people say: for them there is forgiveness, and a provision honourable
Invite all to Allahs way with wisdom
16:125


16.125. invite (mankind, O Muhammad ) to the Way of Your Lord (i.e. Islm) with wisdom (i.e. with
the Divine Inspiration and the Qur'n) and fair preaching, and argue with them In a Way that is
better. Truly, Your Lord knows best who has gone astray from his path, and He is the best Aware
of those who are guided.
29: 46. And argue not with the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians), unless it be in (a
way) that is better (with good words and in good manner, inviting them to Islamic Monotheism with
His Verses), except with such of them as do wrong, and say (to them): "We believe in that which
has been revealed to us and revealed to you; our Ilah (God) and your Ilah (God) is One (i.e. Allah),
and to Him we have submitted (as Muslims)."
Do not revile their false gods
6.108. And insult not those whom they (disbelievers) worship besides Allah, lest they insult Allah
wrongfully without knowledge. Thus We have made fair-seeming to each people its own doings;
then to their Lord is their return and He shall then inform them of all that they used to do.
No compulsion in religion
2.256."Let there be no compulsion in religion: Truth stands out clear from Error: whoever rejects
evil and believes in Allah hath grasped the most trustworthy hand-hold, that never breaks. And
Allah heareth and knoweth all things."
But we are to propogate..

The Prophet (sal Allaahu alayhi wa sallam) said, ((Propagate from me, even if it be one ayah
(verse)(bukhari)



And the prophets command was..
O People, lend me an attentive ear, for I know not whether after this year, I shall ever be amongst you
again. Therefore listen to what I am saying to you very carefully and TAKE THESE WORDS TO THOSE
WHO COULD NOT BE PRESENT HERE TODAY ( last sermon..bukhari)
Learn from this narration:
Abu sufyans conversation with Heraclius( brief extract)
Heraclius asked, 'Do the nobles or the poor follow him?'
I replied, 'It is the poor who follow him.'
He said, 'Are his followers increasing decreasing (day by day)?'
I replied, 'They are increasing.'
(Bukhari)
Make way for one another.be foremost in the way of Allah
58.11. O You who believe! when You are told to make room In the assemblies, (spread out and)
make room. Allh will give You (ample) room (from his Mercy). and when You are told to rise up
[for prayers, Jihd (holy fighting In Allh's Cause), or for any other good deed], rise up. Allh will
exalt In degree those of You who believe, and those who have been granted knowledge. andAllh is
Well-Acquainted with what You do.
Enjoy what Allah has blessed you with but dont be extravagant
7.31. O Children of Adam! take Your adornment (by wearing Your clean clothes), while praying and
going round (the Tawf of ) the Ka'bah, and eat and drink but waste not by extravagance, certainly
He (Allh) likes not Al-Musrifn (those who waste by extravagance).
Give whats due to others and dont be a spendthrift
17:26

17.26. and give to the kindred his due and to the Miskn (poor) and to the wayfarer. but spend not
wastefully (your wealth) In the manner of a spendthrift .
Do not covet what others or non believers may have
2:212. Beautified is the life of this world for those who disbelieve, and they mock at those who
believe
3:14 Fair in the eyes of men is the love of things they covet: Women and sons; Heaped-up hoards of
gold and silver; horses branded (for blood and excellence); and (wealth of) cattle and well-tilled land.
Such are the possessions of this world's life; but in nearness to Allah is the best of the goals (To return
to).
20: 131. And strain not your eyes in longing for the things We have given for enjoyment to various
groups of them (polytheists and disbelievers in the Oneness of Allah), the splendour of the life of this
world that We may test them thereby. But the provision (good reward in the Hereafter) of your Lord
is better and more lasting
4:32 And in no wise covet those things in which Allah Hath bestowed His gifts More freely on some of
you than on others: To men is allotted what they earn, and to women what they earn: But ask Allah of
His bounty. For Allah hath full knowledge of all things.
Fulfill your covenants
17:34


17.34. and come not near to the orphan's property except to improve it, until He attains the age of
full strength. andfulfil (every) Covenant. Verily! the covenant, will be questioned about.
"O you who believe! Fulfill your promises.." [5:1]
the Prophet said: "Three traits single out a hypocrite, even if he prays or fasts and claims to be Muslim: If
he speaks, he lies. If he makes a promise, he does not keep it. If he is entrusted, he betrays the trust." [Al-
Bukhari and Muslim]
Allah loves those who are pure and clean
9.108. never stand You therein. Verily, the mosque whose foundation was laid from the first Day
on piety is more Worthy that You stand therein (to pray). In it are men who love to clean and to
purify themselves. andAllh loves those who make themselves clean and pure (i.e. who clean their
private parts with dust [i.e. to be considered as soap) and water from urine and stools, after
answering the call of nature].
And Allah sees your inner beauty
Abu Hurairah has related that the Holy Prophet (sa) said: Allah does not regard your bodies and looks,
but looks at your hearts (Muslim)
Purification of the soul
91:7 And [by] the soul and He who proportioned it
91:8 And inspired it [with discernment of] its wickedness and its righteousness,
91:9 He has succeeded who purifies it
20: 76. 'Adn (Edn) Paradise (everlasting Gardens), under which rivers flow, wherein they will abide
forever: such is the reward of those who purify themselves [(by abstaining from all kinds of sins
and evil deeds) which Allah has forbidden and by doing all that which Allah has ordained)].
Purifying and offering salah gets us forgiveness
Narrated Abu Huraira: I heard Allah's Apostle saying, "If there was a river at the door of anyone of you
and he took a bath in it five times a day would you notice any dirt on him?" They said, "Not a trace of
dirt would be left." The Prophet added, "That is the example of the five prayers with which Allah blots
out (annuls) evil deeds."
'If anyone Performs ablution like that of mine and offers a two-rak'at prayer during which he does not
think of anything else (not related to the present prayer) then his past sins will be forgiven.' (Bukhari)
Purify with clean earth if no water
5:6 O you who believe! When you intend to offer As-Salt (the prayer), wash your faces and your
hands (forearms) up to the elbows, rub (by passing wet hands over) your heads, and (wash) your
feet up to ankles. If you are in a state of Janba (i.e. had a sexual discharge), purify yourself
(bathe your whole body). But if you are ill or on a journey or any of you comes from answering the
call of nature, or you have been in contact with women (i.e. sexual intercourse) and you find no
water, then perform Tayammum with clean earth and rub therewith your faces and hands. Allh
does not want to place you in difficulty, but He wants to purify you, and to complete His Favour on
you that you may be thankful.
Dont gossip or backbite or slander chaste women
24: 23. Those who slander chaste women, indiscreet but believing, are cursed in this life and in
the Hereafter: for them is a grievous Penalty,-
104.1


104: 1.Woe to every slanderer and backbiter.
Hadith
Prophet Muhammad said :"Do you know what backbiting is?" They said, "God and His Messenger know
best." He then said, "It is to say something about your brother that he would dislike." Someone asked
him, "But what if what I say is true?" The Messenger of God said, "If what you say about him is true, you
are backbiting him, but if it is not true then you have slandered him." (Muslim)

Guard your modesty for( men as well as the women)
24: 30. Tell the believing men to lower their gaze (from looking at forbidden things), and protect
their private parts (from illegal sexual acts, etc.). That is purer for them. Verily, Allah is All-Aware
of what they do.
For the women:
24:31 And tell the believing women to reduce [some] of their vision and guard their private parts
and not expose their adornment except that which [necessarily] appears thereof and to wrap [a
portion of] their head covers over their chests and not expose their adornment except to their
husbands, their fathers, their husbands fathers, their sons, their husbands sons, their brothers,
their brothers sons, their sisters sons, their women, that which their right hands possess, or
those male attendants having no physical desire, or children who are not yet aware of the private
aspects of women. And let them not stamp their feet to make known what they conceal of their
adornment. And turn to Allah in repentance, all of you, O believers, that you might succeed.
Hijab protects:
33:59 O Prophet, tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to bring down
over themselves [part] of their outer garments. That is more
Raiment of righteousness is better
7.26. O Children of Adam! we have bestowed raiment upon You to cover yourselves (screen Your
private parts, etc.) and as an adornment, and the raiment of righteousness, that is better. such are
among the Ayt (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) of Allh, that they may
Remember (i.e. leave falsehood and follow Truth ).
Do not eat up one anothers property or cheat
2.188. and eat up not one another's property unjustly (in any illegal Way e.g. stealing, robbing,
deceiving, etc.), nor give bribery to the rulers (judges before presenting Your cases) that You may
knowingly eat up a part of the property of others sinfully.
Nearness to Allah swt is the best of goals
3:14




3.14."Fair in the eyes of men is the love of things they covet, women and sons; heaped up hoards
of gold and silver; horses branded (for blood and excellence) ; and (wealth of) cattle and well-tilled
land. Such are the possessions of this world's life; but in the nearness to Allah is the best of the
goals (to return to)."
Allah does not like evil to be voiced in public
4:148 Allah loveth not that evil should be noised a broad in public speech, except where injustice
hath been done; for Allah is He Who heareth and knoweth all things.
Nor hold secret counsels for evil reasons
58:7 Have you not considered that Allah knows what is in the heavens and what is on the earth?
There is in no private conversation three but that He is the fourth
of them, nor are there five but that He is the sixth of them and no less than that and no more
except that He is with them [in knowledge] wherever they are. Then He will inform them of what
they did, on the Day of Resurrection. Indeed Allah is, of all things, Knowing.
58:9. O you who believe! When you hold secret counsel, do it not for sin and wrong-doing, and
disobedience towards the Messenger but do it for Al-Birr (righteousness) and Taqwa (virtues and
piety); and fear Allah unto Whom you shall be gathered.

58:10. Secret counsels (conspiracies) are only from Shaitan (Satan), in order that he may cause
grief to the believers. But he cannot harm them in the least, except as Allah permits, and in Allah
let the believers put their trust .
Avoid those who are in vain discourse about the signs of Allah
6:68 When thou seest men engaged in vain discourse about Our signs, turn away from them unless
they turn to a different theme. If Satan ever makes thee forget, then after recollection, sit not
thou in the company of those who do wrong.
Ask permission to enter someones home, go back if no response
24:27. O ye believe! Enter not houses other than your own, until ye have asked permission and
saluted those in them: that is best for you, in order that ye may heed (what is seemly).
24:28. If ye find no one in the house, enter not until permission is given to you: if ye are asked to
go back, go back: That makes for greater purity for yourselves: and Allah Knows well all that ye
do."
Repel (evil) with that is better
41:34


41:34. The good deed and the evil deed cannot be equal. Repel (the evil) with one which is better
(i.e. Allah ordered the faithful believers to be patient at the time of anger, and to excuse those
who treat them badly), then verily! he, between whom and you there was enmity, (will become) as
though he was a close friend
Dont be a spendthrift
17:27

17: 27. Verily, spendthrifts are brothers of the Shayatin (devils), and the Shaitan (Devil - Satan) is
ever ungrateful to his Lord.
If an evil suggestion comes to you from Satan, then seek refuge in Allah
49:6


49:6 And if an evil suggestion comes to you from Satan, then seek refuge in Allah. Indeed, He is
Hearing and Knowing
Do not be a racist
49:13


49:13 O mankind, indeed We have created you from male and female and made you peoples and
tribes that you may know one another. Indeed, the most noble of you in the sight of Allah is the
most righteous of you. Indeed, Allah is Knowing and Acquainted.
You are sons of Adam, and Adam came from dust. Let the people cease to boast about their ancestors."
(Sunan Abu Dawud, Book 41, Number 5097)
These genealogies of yours are not a reason to revile anyone. You are all children of Adam. No one has
any superiority over another except in religion and taqwa." (Ahmad ibn Hanbal)
Deal justly with all but dont befriend the evil one or the oppressor
60.8


60.8.Allah forbids you not, With regard to those who Fight you not for (your) Faith Nor drive you
out Of your homes, From dealing kindly and justly With them: For Allah loveth Those who are just.
60:9It is only as regards those who fought against you on account of religion, and have driven you
out of your homes, and helped to drive you out, that Allah forbids you to befriend them. And
whosoever will befriend them, then such are the Zalimun(wrong-doers those who disobey Allah).
Stand up for truth and justice and against wrong even if it be against one self or
atleast wish in your mind against it
4: 135.O you who believe! Stand out firmly for justice, as witnesses to Allah, even though it be
against yourselves, or your parents, or your kin, be he rich or poor, Allah is a Better Protector to
both (than you). So follow not the lusts (of your hearts), lest you may avoid justice, and if you
distort your witness or refuse to give it, verily, Allah is Ever Well-Acquainted with what you do.
5:8 O you who believe! Stand out firmly for Allh and be just witnesses and let not the enmity and
hatred of others make you avoid justice. Be just: that is nearer to piety, and fear Allh. Verily,
Allh is WellAcquainted with what you do.
Hadith:
On the authority of Abu Said al-Khudri, radiyallahu anhu, who said: I heard the Messenger of Allah,
sallallahu alayhiwasallam, say:
When any one of you sees anything that is disapproved (of by Allah), let him change it with his hand. If
he is not able to do so, then let him change it with his tongue. And if he is not able to do so, then let him
change it with his heart, though that is the weakest (kind of) faith.
[Muslim]
Do not seek hidden meanings ending in disputes and fitnah
3. 7.It is He Who has sent down to you (Muhammad ) the Book (this Qur'an). In it are Verses that are
entirely clear, they are the foundations of the Book [and those are the Verses of Al-
Ahkam(commandments, etc.), Al-Fara'id(obligatory duties) and Al-Hudud(legal laws for the punishment
of thieves, adulterers, etc.)]; and others not entirely clear. So as for those in whose hearts there is a
deviation (from the truth) they follow that which is not entirely clear thereof, seeking Al-
Fitnah(polytheism and trials, etc.), and seeking for its hidden meanings, but none knows its hidden
meanings save Allah. And those who are firmly grounded in knowledge say: "We believe in it; the
whole of it (clear and unclear Verses) are from our Lord." And none receive admonition except men of
understanding. (Tafsir At-Tabari).
Simple solution:
4:59. O you who believe! Obey Allah and obey the Messenger (Muhammad ), and those of you
(Muslims) who are in authority. (And) if you differ in anything amongst yourselves, refer it to Allah
and His Messenger , if you believe in Allah and in the Last Day. That is better and more suitable for
final determination
On the authority of Aishah, who said : The messenger of Allah said:
"He who innovates something in this matter of ours that is not of it will have it rejected."
narrated by (Bukhari and Muslim)
Do not go to the extremes in your religion/actions
Whats lawful is clear from whats unlawful. avoid that what is doubtful
On the authority of Al-Numan bin Basheer, who said : I heared the messenger of Allah say :
"That which is lawful is plain and that which is unlawful is plain and between the two of 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 honor, but he who falls into doubtful matters falls into that
which is unlawful, like the shepherd who pastures around a 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 it be whole, all the body is whole and which, if it be diseased, all of it is
diseased. Truly it is the heart."
narrated by (Bukhari and Muslim)
In many matters the middle path is better
17: 67.And those, who, when they spend, are neither extravagant nor niggardly, but hold a
medium (way) between those (extremes).
5:77 Say: "O People of the Book. Do not go to extremes in your religion, asserting other than the
truth, and do not follow the whims and desires of people who were misguided previously and have
misguided many others, and are far from the right way."
2:185 Allah desires ease for you; He does not desire difficulty for you"
the Prophet declared, in a hadith contained in the Sahih al-Bukhari, Your body also has rights
over you. Your Lord also has rights over you. Your guest also has rights over you. Your wife and
children also have rights over you. That is why you should fulfill the rights of the Lord of the
rights.

Allah does not impose on any self something more than it can stand. For it is what it has earned; against
it, what it has brought upon itself. "
2:286 "Our Lord, do not take us to task if we forget or make a mistake. Our Lord, do not place on
us a load like the one You placed on those before us. Our Lord, do not place on us a load we have
not the strength to bear. Pardon us, forgive us, and have mercy on us. You are our Master, so help
us against the unbelievers.
Prophet s.a.s said make things easy for the people
Prophet (may Allah bless him and grant him peace), who made the Qur'an his guide gave this advice to
his people: "Make things easy for the people, and do not make it difficult for them. Make them calm
(with glad tidings), and do not repulse (them)"
(Sahih Bukhari).
Dont be extreme in your acts of ibadah
Anas said, "Three people came to the houses of the wives of the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant
him peace, to ask about how the Prophet worshipped. When they were told, it was as if they thought it
was little and said, 'Where are we in relation to the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant
him peace, who has been forgiven his past and future wrong actions?'" He said, "One of them said, 'I will
pray all of every night.' Another said, 'I will fast all the time and not break the fast.' The other said, "I will
withdraw from women and never marry.' The Messenger of Allah came to them and said, 'Are you the
ones who said such-and-such? By Allah, I am the one among you with the most fear and awareness of
Allah, but I fast and break the fast, I pray and I sleep, and I marry women. Whoever disdains my sunna is
not with me.'" [Agreed upon]
'A'isha reported that the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, "When one
of you dozes off while he is praying, he should go and lie down until he is no longer sleepy. If someone
prays when he is drowsy, he may not know whether he is asking for forgiveness or asking for something
bad for himself." [Agreed upon]
The middle path
Abu Hurayra reported that the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, "The deen is
easy. Anyone who makes the deen too hard on himself will find it becomes too much for him. So aim for
what is right, follow a middle path, accept the good news of the reward for right action, and seek help
[to reach your goal by being constant in worshipping] in the morning, evening and some of the night."
[al-Bukhari]
Hasan ibn Ali (r.a) relates that he learnt the following from the Holy Prophet (sa): Leave alone that which
involves thee in doubt and adhere to that which is free from doubt, for truth is comforting and
falsehood is disturbing. (Tirmidhi)
IbnMas'ud reported that the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, "Those who make
things hard for themselves will be destroyed." He said it three times. (Muslim)
Do not kill innocent beings or create fitnah, saving a life is saving all of mankind
5: 32. Because of that We ordained for the Children of Israel that if anyone killed a person not in
retaliation of murder, or (and) to spread mischief in the land - it would be as if he killed all
mankind, and if anyone saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of all mankind. And indeed,
there came to them Our Messengers with clear proofs, evidences, and signs, even then after that
many of them continued to exceed the limits (e.g. by doing oppression unjustly and exceeding
beyond the limits set by Allah by committing the major sins) in the land!.
7:56 Do no mischief on the earth, after it hath been set in order, but call on Him with fear and
longing (in your hearts): for the Mercy of Allah is (always) near to those who do good.
11: 85"And O my people! give just measure and weight, nor withhold from the people the things
that are their due: commit not evil in the land with intent to do mischief.
17:33. And do not kill anyone which Allah has forbidden, except for a just cause
Allah swt checks one group with another to stop fitnah on earth
2:251 By Allah.s will they routed them; and David slew Goliath; and Allah gave him power and
wisdom and taught him whatever (else) He willed. And did not Allah Check one set of people by
means of another, the earth would indeed be full of mischief: But Allah is full of bounty to all the
worlds.
7.4 KNOW YOUR ENEMY NO 1 :SHAITAN:
Shaitan threatens us with fear of poverty
2:268. The Evil one threatens you with poverty and bids you to conduct unseemly. Allah promiseth
you His forgiveness and bounties. And Allah careth for all and He knoweth all things.
Shaitan has evil intentions for us
7:17. "Then will I assault them from before them and behind them, from their right and their left:
Nor wilt thou find, in most of them, gratitude (for thy mercies)."
7:18. ((Allah)) said: "Get out from this, disgraced and expelled. If any of them follow thee,- Hell
will I fill with you all.
Dont allow shaitan to seduce you to do wrong
7:27. O ye Children of Adam! Let not Satan seduce you, in the same manner as He got your parents
out of the Garden, stripping them of their raiment, to expose their shame: for he and his tribe
watch you from a position where ye cannot see them: We made the evil ones friends (only) to
those without faith.
Dont take the evil ones for friends
6:128. One day will He(Allah swt) gather them all together, (and say): "O ye assembly of Jinns!
Much (toll) did ye take of men." Their friends amongst men will say: "Our Lord! we made profit
from each other: but (alas!) we reached our term - which thou didst appoint for us." He will say:
"The Fire be your dwelling-place: you will dwell therein for ever, except as Allah willeth." for thy
Lord is full of wisdom and knowledge.
Shaitan will disown those who took him as a freind
14:22. And Satan will say when the matter is decided: "It was Allah Who gave you a promise of
Truth: I too promised, but I failed in my promise to you. I had no authority over you except to call
you but ye listened to me: then reproach not me, but reproach your own souls. I cannot listen to
your cries, nor can ye listen to mine. I reject your former act in associating me with Allah. For
wrong-doers there must be a grievous penalty."
Shaitan has no power whatsoever if we keep faith in Allah and obey Him
15:39. (Iblis) said: "O my Lord! because Thou hast put me in the wrong, I will make (wrong) fair-
seeming to them on the earth, and I will put them all in the wrong,-
15:40. "Except Thy servants among them, sincere and purified (by Thy Grace)."
15:41. ((Allah)) said: "This (way of My sincere servants) is indeed a way that leads straight to Me.
15:42. "For over My servants no authority shalt thou have, except such as put themselves in the
wrong and follow thee."
Spendthrifts are the brothers of the evil ones
17:27. Verily spendthrifts are brothers of the Evil Ones; and the Evil One is to his Lord (himself)
ungrateful.
Music,illegal sexual intercourse,usury are tools of shaitan
17:64. "And Istafziz [literally means: befool them gradually] those whom you can among them with
your voice (i.e. songs, music, and any other call for Allah's disobedience), make assaults on them
with your cavalry and your infantry, mutually share with them wealth and children (by tempting
them to earn money by illegal ways usury, etc., or by committing illegal sexual intercourse, etc.),
and make promises to them." But Satan promises them nothing but deceit.
Intoxicants, gambling,fortune telling and by inference drugs ,astrology,birth charts
etc are tools of shaitan too
5:90.O you who believe! Intoxicants (all kinds of alcoholic drinks), gambling, Al-Ansab , and Al-
Azlam(arrows for seeking luck or decision) are an abomination of Shaitan's (Satan) handiwork. So
avoid (strictly all) that (abomination) in order that you may be successful .
91. Shaitan (Satan) wants only to excite enmity and hatred between you with intoxicants
(alcoholic drinks) and gambling, and hinder you from the remembrance of Allah and from As-Salat
(the prayer). So, will you not then abstain?
Shaitan has no authority over the slaves of Allah
17:65. "Verily! My slaves (i.e the true believers of Islamic Monotheism), you have no authority over
them. And All-Sufficient is your Lord as a Guardian."
Shaitans suggestions are a trial for us
22:53. That He may make the suggestions thrown in by Satan, but a trial for those in whose hearts
is a disease and who are hardened of heart: verily the wrong-doers are in a schism far (from the
Truth)
With each one of us is a evil one trying to mislead us with his suggestions
A'isha the wife of Allah's Apostle (may peace be upon him), reported that one day Allah's Messenger
(may peace be upon him) came out of her (apartment) during the night and she felt jealous. Then he
came and he saw me (in what agitated state of mind) I was. He said: A'isha, what has happened to you?
Do you feel jealous? Thereupon she said: How can it he (that a woman like me) should NOT feel jealous
in regard to a husband like you. Thereupon Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) said: It was your
devil who had come to you, and she said: Allah's Mes- senger, is there along with me a devil? He said:
Yes. I said: Is devil attached to everyone? He said: Yes. I (Aisha) again said: Allah's Messenger, is it with
you also? He said: Yes, but my Lord has helped me against him and as such I am absolutely safe from his
mischief.
[SahiMuslim Book 039, Number 6759]
Shayatin are friends of those who are evil and lying persons
26:221.Shall I inform you (O people!) upon whom the Shayatin(devils) descend?
26:222. They descend on every lying (one who tells lies), sinful person.
Shayatin have no knowledge of the unseen save what hearsay and vanities they use
as tools to mislead
26:223. Who gives ear (to the devils and they pour what they may have heard of the unseen from
the angels), and most of them are liars.
35:6. Surely, Shaitan (Satan) is an enemy to you, so take (treat) him as an enemy. He only invites
his Hizb (followers) that they may become the dwellers of the blazing Fire.
7.5 HOW TO SAVE OURSELVES FROM SHAITAN AND HIS
TRIBE
Enter into islam fully or follow it in full and not follow footsteps of shaitan
2: 208 O you who believe! Enter perfectly in Islam (by obeying all the rules and regulations of the
Islamic religion) and follow not the footsteps of Shaitan (Satan). Verily! He is to you a plain enemy.
24: 21 .O you who believe! Follow not the footsteps of Shaitan (Satan). And whosoever follows the
footsteps of Shaitan (Satan), then, verily he commands Al-Fahsha' [i.e. to commit indecency (illegal
sexual intercourse, etc.)], and Al-Munkar [disbelief and polytheism (i.e. to do evil and wicked
deeds; to speak or to do what is forbidden in Islam, etc.)]. And had it not been for the Grace of
Allah and His Mercy on you, not one of you would ever have been pure from sins. But Allah purifies
(guides to Islam) whom He wills, and Allah is All-Hearer, All-Knower.
Saying Auzubillah Bismillah

The following is mentioned in the Quran about that:
41.36.If Satan tempts you, seek refuge in Allah
That is, say Auzubillahiminash-shaytanir-rajim (I seek refuge in Allah) from the accursed Satan)
It is also recommended to take refuge in Allah with the verses in surah al-Muminoon
23.97-98Rabbi auzubika min hamazatish-Shayatinwaauzubika Rabbi an yahdurun It means; O
Lord! I seek refuge in you from the evil suggestions of the Satans. And I seek refuge in you, O my
Lord, from their presence. .

While getting into/being in the house say bismillah much

Another hadith reported from Jabir about Bismillah points to the importance of saying bismillah while
getting into houses and before having a meal. The Prophet said: If a person says bismillah, when he
returns his house, gets into house and before the meal, Satan says to his friends you cannot stay
overnight here and there is no food for you However, if the person says it before getting in but does not
say it before dinner, Satan says: You can have dinner but it is impossible to stay overnight However, if
the person does not say bismillah while getting into the house and before eating, Satan says You can
have dinner and stay overnight here.
( Muslim, Ashriba, 103, (2018); Abu Dawud, At'ima, 16, (3765).)

While getting out of the house say bsimillah much

Saying bismillah before getting into the house protects us from the wickedness of the Satan and keeps
him away from the house. It is clear that a man needs to be protected in the street too. Saying
auzubismillah is necessary for it. However, the Prophet was not contended with just auzubillah and
bismallah and added some other prayers. In a hadith reported by Abu Hurayra, the Prophet says: If
anyone who goes out of his house says:in the name of the Allah I seek refuge in Allah, He has the
power, he is replied: Go ahead you are led to the right way and you are protected. The Satan stays
away from him.(Tirmizi, Daawat, 34, (3422) Surah Al-Baqara: ayatul-kursi and amanar-rasulu In a hadith
reported by Abu Hurayra, The Prophet says: do not turn your houses into graves, The Satan runs away
from the house in which surah al-Baqara is read
(Muslim, Misafirin, 212, (780)
In another hadith it is told that those two verses are Amanar-rasulu, the last two verses of surah al-
Baqara.(Tirmizi, Sawabul-Quran, 4/2882)

In bed, before sleeping
There are several prayers that the Prophet read in bed before sleeping. In a hadith about the issue
reported by Burayda, the Prophet says: O the Lord of the seven Heavens and those shadowed by
Heavens, the Lord of the Earths and those that live on them, the Lord of the demons and those tempted
by demons! Protect me from the wickedness of all those creatures. Protect me so that none of them can
attack me suddenly. One who is protected by you surely becomes great. Your praise is great, there is no
God but you and you are the only God
(Tirmizi, Daawat, 96, (3518).)

When scared in the sleep

According to a report from Imam Malik, Khalid IbnuWalid asked the Prophet: I get scared in my sleep
(what do you suggest me to do?). The Prophet advised to him to pray like this: I seek refuge in Allah
from the wrath and anger of Him, from the wickedness of people, from the suggestions and from the
temptations of the demons
(Muwatta, Shir, 9, (2, 950).)


While getting into the toilet.

Toilets, dumps, baths, cemeteries, ruins are places frequently haunted by jinn and demons. The Prophet
would read this prayer while getting into the toilet: Allahummainniauzubikamina'lkhubthive'l-khabaith.
(O Lord I seek refuge in you from filth and from wicked creatures (like jinn and demon).
(Bukhari, Wudu, 9)

Takbir, tasbih, tahmidTasbihat (glorifications)
Following daily prayers can be done in a mosque or in any place where we perform prayer and can also
be done while walking in the street, while driving, in the bed before sleeping. The following is
mentioned about the issue in the Quran; Those who remember Allah, standing, sitting and lying down
on their sides and meditate upon the creation of the heavens and the earth." (Aal-e-Imran, 3/191.)

Tasbihat should never be abandoned and should be done wherever we are. The Prophet says that the
Satan makes people remember their daily works and make them perform the prayer quickly and
haphazardly and make them go straight to their work or fall asleep without doing tasbihat.

La ilahaillallahuwahdahu la-sharikalah,

It is one of prayer tasbihat in the level of supplication. The Prophet said in a hadith reported by Abu
Hurayra A person who says the prayer: La ilahaillallahuwahdahu la-sharikalah, lahu'lmulkuwalahu'l-
hamduwahuwaalakullishay'inqadir one hundred times a day gains the reward of setting ten slaves free
and gains one hundred good deeds and one hundred sins of his/her are erased. It also protects him/her
from the Satan for three days until evening.
(Bukhari, Daawat, 54)

Surah al-Ikhlas against suggestions of the Satan

In a hadith, a suggestion of the Satan is mentioned and it is advised to read surah al-Ikhlas and spit three
times towards the left side.

Mu'awwidhatayn (Surahs an-Nas and al-Falaq)
It is said that The Prophet read surahs al-Falaq and an-Nas and advised his companions and his wife
Aisha to read them in order to be protected from the wickedness of jinn.


A hadith reported by Hazrat Aisha is as follows: When the Prophet got into his bed blew into his hands
and read Muawwizatayn and al-Ikhlas and rubbed his hands his face and his body with his hands and
repeated that three times. When he got, sick he demanded me to do the same thing to him.
(Bukhari, Fazailu'l-Qur'an, 14)
Repent often
How to repent?
For repentance to be accepted by Allah, one should go through these four stages:

1- Stop the sin.
2- Regretting deeply and truly for the sin you committed.
3- Return to Allah for forgiveness.
4- Strong intention never to return to that same sin again.

What would help in fulfilling the above four stages?
The repenting person should remember three facts:

1. The grave consequence of sins.
2. The painful punishment for sins and
3. How week a person is when committing such sins.

Abu Bakr Al siddiq (May Allah be pleased with him), narrated:

"I heard Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) saying: There isnt a man who, when he commits a sin, rises,
makes ablution, and offers two rak'as of prayers, but Allah forgives his sins.

Allah says in the Qur'an:

3.135."Those (are the true believers) who, when they commit an evil deed, or wrong their souls,
remember Allah, and seek forgiveness for their sins - and who but Allah forgives sins? They do not
insist upon the sins they have committed, and they know (that Allah is forgiving)."
39:53.Say: "O 'Ibadi (My slaves) who have transgressed against themselves (by committing evil
deeds and sins)! Despair not of the Mercy of Allah, verily Allah forgives all sins. Truly, He is Oft-
Forgiving, Most Merciful.
39:54. "And turn in repentance and in obedience with true Faith to your Lord and submit to Him,
before the torment comes upon you, then you will not be helped.
39:55. "And follow the best of that which is sent down to you from your Lord (i.e. this Qur'an, do
what it orders you to do and keep away from what it forbids), before the torment comes on you
suddenly while you perceive not!"
53:32. Those who avoid great sins and Al-Fawahish (illegal sexual intercourse, etc.) except the
small faults, verily, your Lord is of vast forgiveness. He knows you well when He created you from
the earth and when you were fetuses in your mothers' wombs. So ascribe not purity to yourselves.
He knows best him who fears Allah and keep his duty to Him
Race for forgiveness and pleasure of Allah
57:21. Race one with another in hastening towards Forgiveness from your Lord (Allah), and towards
Paradise, the width whereof is as the width of heaven and earth, prepared for those who believe in
Allah and His Messengers. That is the Grace of Allah which He bestows on whom He pleases. And
Allah is the Owner of Great Bounty.

7.6 DO DHIKR OF ALLAH SWT OFTEN,SUPPLICATE TO
HIM OFTEN
Dhikr of Allah is the most excellent act of Allah's servants and is stressed over a hundred times in the
Holy Qur'an
Allah says in His holy Book:
"
33.41.O Believers, make abundant mention of ALLAH!"
To do dhikr..relflecting,pondering over the creation of Allah swt standing ,sitting and
sleeping
3: 191.Those who remember Allah (always, and in prayers) standing, sitting, and lying down on their
sides, and think deeply about the creation of the heavens and the earth, (saying): "Our Lord! You have
not created (all) this without purpose, glory to You! (Exalted be You above all that they associate with
You as partners). Give us salvation from the torment of the Fire.
The Prophet said: "If your hearts were always in the state that they are in during dhikr, the angels
would come to see you to the point that they would greet you in the middle of the road." Muslim
narrated it.
Dhikr in salah
29:45Recite, [O Muhammad], what has been revealed to you of the Book and establish prayer.
Indeed, prayer prohibits immorality and wrongdoing, and the remembrance of Allah is greater. And
Allah knows that which you do.
20: 14. "Verily! I am Allah! La ilahailla Ana (none has the right to be worshipped but I), so worship
Me, and perform As-Salat (Iqamat-as-Salat) for My Remembrance
Hadith qudsi:
"Allah says: I am to my servant as he expects of Me, I am with him when he remembers Me. If
he remembers Me in his heart, I remember him to Myself, and if he remembers me in an
assembly, I mention him in an assembly better than his..."
(Bukhari and Muslim)
Allah has bestowed a special distinction upon those who remember Him. The Prophet, peace be
upon him, said, "The single-hearted (al-mufarridun) have surpassed all." They asked, "Who are
these single-hearted people, O Prophet of Allah?" He replied, "Those men and women who
remember Allah unceasingly."
(Muslim)
33: 41.O you who believe! Remember Allah with much remembrance.
2: 152.Therefore remember Me (by praying, glorifying, etc.). I will remember you, and be grateful
to Me (for My countless Favours on you) and never be ungrateful to Me.
Tahajjud or late night prayer
good for governing ourselves and our desires and learning the quran
73:6 Verily, the rising by night (for Tahajjudprayer) is very hard and most potent and good for
governing oneself, and most suitable for (understanding) the Word (of Allah).
The Excellence of Qiyaam al-Layl:
Many Qur'aanic verses speak about the excellence of Qiyam and the merits of those people, who
perform Qiyaam al-Layl on a regular basis, for example, Allah describes the believers who deserve
Jannah saying: They (the believers) forsake their beds, to invoke their Lord in fear and hope; and they
spend out of what We have bestowed on them. [Soorah as-Sajdah (32): 16]
They (the pious) used to sleep but little at night.[Soorahath-Thariyat (51): 17]
Also, numerous Ahadeeth add to this subject, narrated Abu Hurayrah (radhiallahuanhu): The
Messenger of Allah (sallallahualaihiwa-sallam) said: The best prayer after those prescribed is (the
prayer performed) in the depth of night.
[Saheeh Muslim and Musnad Ahmad]
Jabir (radhiallahuanhu) reported, the Messenger of Allah (sallallahualaihiwa-sallam) saying: There is an
hour of the night which no Muslim person encounters and asks for a good thing for this life or the
Hereafter, but Allah grants it to him. This happens every night.
[Saheeh Muslim]
7.7 DOS AND DONTS OF DUA
Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, "A slave
becomes nearest to his Rubb when he is in prostration. So increase supplications in prostrations.''
[Muslim].
Commentary: This Hadith points out the exellence of supplicating while prostrating in Salat, as one gets
closer to Allah in this position.
Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH), "The
supplication of every one of you will be granted if he does not get impatient and say (for example): `I
supplicated my Rubb but my prayer has not been granted'.''
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].
Commentary: We learn from this Hadith that one should continue beseeching Allah without ever
thinking that in spite of praying for a long time, his prayer has not been granted. One should never allow
frustration to overcome in his mind. If a person's supplication is not granted for a long time, there would
be certainly some good for him in that delay the reason of which is known to Allah Alone. It is, therefore,
essential that he should never cease to pray whether his prayer is granted or not. Persistence in prayer
is certainly beneficial to him.
Ibn `Abbas (May Allah be pleased with them) said: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) used to say when he
was in distress: "La ilahaillallahul-Azimul-Halim. La ilahaillallahuRabbul-`Arshil-`Azim. La
ilahaillallahuRabbus-samawati, waRabbul-ardi, waRabbul-`Arshil-Karim. (None has the right to be
worshipped but Allah the Incomparably Great, the Compassionate. None has the right to be worshipped
but Allah the Rubb of the Mighty Throne. None has the right to be worshipped but Allah the Rubb of the
heavens, the Rubb of the earth, and the Rubb of the Honourable Throne).''
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].
Commentary: The only medicine in a time of distress is the remembrance of Allah Whose Help alone
should be sought. This Du`a contains words which glorify Allah and exalt Him far above all else. It is
desirable to recite these words when one is in distress as this is exactly what the Prophet (PBUH) used to
recite in such situations.
`Ubadah bin As-Samit (May Allah be pleased with him) said: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said,
"Whenever a Muslim supplicates Allah, He accepts his supplication or averts any similar kind of trouble
from him until he prays for something sinful or something that may break the ties of kinship.'' Upon this
someone of the Companions said: "Then we shall supplicate plenty.'' The Messenger of Allah (PBUH)
said, "Allah is more plentiful (in responding).''
[At-Tirmidhi].
Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah (Peace Be Upon him)
said, There are two statements that are light for the tongue to remember, heavy in the Scales and are
dear to the Merciful: `Subhan-Allahiwabihamdihi, Subhan-Allahil-Azim [Glory be to Allah and His is the
praise, (and) Allah, the Greatest is free from imperfection)'.''
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].
Abu Umamah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) was asked: "At
what time does the supplication find the greatest response?'' He (PBUH) replied, "A supplication made
during the middle of the last part of the night and after the conclusion of the obligatory prayers.''
[At-Tirmidhi].
Commentary: "Al-'Akhir'' is the characteristic of "Jauf'' and in the present context it means the late
hours of night. "Jauf'' can also mean here "middle'', that is in the later-half of the night.
In other words, if the night is divided between two equal parts then it (Jauf) would be the middle of the
second part. In either case it is the time of the night which in other Ahadith has been termed as the third
part of the night. It is the time when Almighty Allah comes to descend on the sky of this world.
Prayers are also granted by Allah after the obligatory Salat.
Commentary: We learn from this Hadith that prayer (supplication) is beneficial to us in any case,
because Almighty Allah either grants the prayer we make, or if the supplication is not being accepted,
He removes some future trouble that was destined for us, or He grants us in full in the Hereafter.
A Muslim should never feel shy of praying to Allah. In fact, he should persistently pray because there is
no end to His Treasures.
Absolute Trust in Allah (swt) (Al-Tawakkul Alal-Allah)
Beautiful words of our beloved prophe s.a.s to his companion abu bakr ra
9:40




9:40. If ye help not (your leader), (it is no matter): for Allah did indeed help him, when the
Unbelievers drove him out: he had no more than one companion; they two were in the cave, and
he said to his companion, "Have no fear, for Allah is with us": then Allah sent down His peace upon
him, and strengthened him with forces which ye saw not, and humbled to the depths the word of
the Unbelievers. But the word of Allah is exalted to the heights: for Allah is Exalted in might, Wise.

Tawakkul is a fundamental part of the Islamic Aqeedah. Tawakkul is translated here as either trust or
dependence. Putting our trust in Allah (swt) is a matter of belief and contributes to our view regarding
this life. To make this point clear, some of the Ayahs are quoted as below. Allah (swt) says:

3:160






3.160.If Allah helps you, none can overcome you: If He forsakes you, who is there after that, that
can help you? In Allah then, let the Believers put their trust.

And Allah (swt) says:
9.51.Say: Nothing will happen to us except what Allah has decreed for us: He is our Protector:
And on Allah let the believers put their trust.

And Allah (swt) says:
26.217.And put they trust on the exalted in Might, the Merciful.

When you take a decision trust in Allah

Allah (swt) also says:
3: 159. And by the Mercy of Allah, you dealt with them gently. And had you been severe and harsh-
hearted, they would have broken away from about you; so pass over (their faults), and ask (Allah's)
Forgiveness for them; and consult them in the affairs. Then when you have taken a decision, put your
trust in Allah, certainly, Allah loves those who put their trust (in Him).

The hadith on tying of the camel
A man came to the Prophet (saw) and said, I will not tie my camel and trust in Allah The Prophet
(saw) said, Tie it and trust in Allah.( tirmidhi)
This Hadith does not indicate any prerequisite for trusting Allah (swt). It does not, therefore suggest that
somehow there is a link between people tying the camel (an action) and putting ones trust in Allah
(swt). However, the Hadith conveys an important lesson to all of us: That while trust in Allah (swt) is
absolute being independent of what we do it is our responsibility to act on what we intended to
accomplish. In this case tying the camel was a right thing to do if the person feared that the camel would
run away. Therefore he should have taken the precaution regardless of his trust in Allah (swt). Tying the
camel does not take away from his trust in Allah (swt), irrespective of our efforts and the circumstances
surrounding us.


Show gratitude to Allah..thank Him often,glorify Him often
2:152 Therefore remember Me (by praying, glorifying), I will remember you, and be grateful to Me
and never be ungrateful to Me.
Infinite mercies of Allah upon us
16.18.If you tried to number Allah's blessings, you could never count them. Allah is Ever-Forgiving,
Most Merciful.
Be grateful at all times dont be musrifunthat
10:12 And when harm touches man, he invokes Us, lying down on his side, or sitting or standing.
But when We have removed his harm from him, he passes on his way as if he had never invoked Us
for a harm that touched him! Thus it seems fair to the Musrifunthat (transgressors)which they used
to do.
Thank Allah specifically
26: 78. "Who has created me, and it is He Who guides me;
26:79. "And it is He Who feeds me and gives me to drink.
26:80. "And when I am ill, it is He who cures me;
27:19. So he [Sulaiman (Solomon)] smiled, amused at her speech and said: "My Lord! Inspire and
bestow upon me the power and ability that I may be grateful for Your Favours which You have
bestowed on me and on my parents, and that I may do righteous good deeds that will please You,
and admit me by Your Mercy among Your righteous slaves."
Can anything else be more eye opening?
Ayesha reported: "The Prophet used to offer prayers at night (for such a long time) that his feet used to
crack. I said, 'O Allah's Apostle! Why do you do it since Allah has forgiven you your faults of the past and
those to follow?' He said, 'Shouldn't I love to be a grateful servant?'" (Bukhari)
Have you thanked Allah today?
So
what are the lessons? And what to do when you feel distress, suffer loss or you are passing
through a time of trial and tribulations or some illness etc?
1) Tighthen, fasten, hold on firmly to your faith at such times. do not despair of the mercy
and help of Allah

3:160 If Allah helps you none can overcome you, and if He forsakes you, who is there, after
Him, that can help you. And in Allah (alone) let believers put their trust.

4:175. Then those who believe in Allah, and hold fast to Him,- soon will He admit them to
mercy and grace from Himself, and guide them to Himself by a straight way.

12:87----Indeed, no one despairs of relief from Allah except the disbelieving people."

15:56 He said: "And who despairs of the mercy of his Lord, but such as go astray?"
Prophet s.a.s used to do this dua in times of distress"'O Allah, I hope for our mercy! Do not leave me to
myself for the blink of an eye. Put all of my affair in order. There is no god but You.'"Narrated by Abu
Dawood (5090); classed as hasan by al-Albaani in Saheeh Abi Dawood.
2) do dhikr, tasbih, hamd,takbir much.daily.every minute you can,with a smile on your face.

7:180 the most beautiful names belong to Allah: so call (supplicate) on Him by (invoking) them

The messenger of Allah said:"Purity is half of faith. alhamdu-lillah [Praise be to Allah] fills the
scales, and subhana-Allah [How far is Allah from every imperfection] and alhamdu-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."
related by Muslim.


3) Take stock.what wrong are we doing??Are we caught in some fahsha, act of lust or an act
of the mind or indulging in desires that we know are fasle and are to be elimninated, or
are we caught in some fitnah..Act of deceit.betrayal, lying, waste of time, vain talking?
Are we in the company of those who are in the wrong

5:57. O ye who believe! take not for friends and protectors those who take your religion for a
mockery or sport,- whether among those who received the Scripture before you, or among
those who reject Faith; but fear ye Allah, if ye have faith (indeed).

24:21. O you who believe! Follow not the footsteps of Shaitan (Satan). And whosoever follows
the footsteps of Shaitan (Satan), then, verily he commands Al-Fahsha' [i.e. to commit
indecency (illegal sexual intercourse, etc.)], and Al-Munkar [disbelief and polytheism (i.e. to
do evil and wicked deeds; to speak or to do what is forbidden in Islam, etc.)]. And had it not
been for the Grace of Allah and His Mercy on you, not one of you would ever have been pure
from sins. But Allah purifies (guides to Islam) whom He wills, and Allah is All-Hearer, All-
Knower.

53:61 Wasting your (precious) lifetime in pastime and amusements

The Prophet Muhammad [2] said: "l yuldighu-l mu'min min juhrin marratayn," meaning, "The believer
is not stung from (the same) hole twice" (bukhari)
4) Do a good deed, start! a good deed cancels out a bad deed. Smile often. feed the poor or
help the needy and see the instant difference it makes to your life. Speak a good word to
the distressed or displaced or the unfortunate or the one challenged and see how you feel
lighter and content in your own sorrow or distress.

2:263 kind words and forgiving of faults are better than Sadaqah (charity) followed by injury.
And Allah is Rich (Free of all needs) and He is Most-Forbearing

Wondrous are the believer's affairs. For him there is good in all his affairs, and this is so only for the
believer. When something pleasing happens to him, he is grateful, and that is good for him; and
when something displeasing happens to him, he is patient, and that is good for him." (Muslim)

Narrated Abdullah bin Amr bin Al-As: A man asked Allahs Messenger, Which act in Islam is the
best? He replied, To feed (the poor and the needy) and to salute everyone, whether you are
acquainted with them or not. ( Al-Bukhari and Muslim)

Narrated Abu Hurairah: Allahs Messenger said, Be prompt in doing good deeds (before you are
overtaken) by turbulence which would be like a part of the dark night. During (that stormy period) a
man would be a believer in the morning and turn to disbelief in the evening, or he would be a
believer in the evening and turn disbeliever in the morning, and would sell his Faith for worldly
goods. (Muslim)

'Umar b. al-Khattab narrated that the Prophet (S) said: Deeds are [a result] only of the intentions
and an individual is [rewarded] only according to that which he intends. Therefore, whosoever has
emigrated for the sake of Allah and His messenger, then his emigration was for Allah and His
messenger. Whosoever emigrated for the sake of worldly gain, or a woman [whom he desires] to
marry, then his emigration is for the sake of that which [moved him] to emigrate." Narrated by
(Bukhari and Muslim).
5) fast on a Monday and a Thursday.
Prophet s.a.s used to fast on a Monday and Thursday in sahih hadith
It was narrated from Abu Hurayrah (may Allaah be pleased with him) that the Messenger of Allaah
(peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: Deeds are shown (to Allaah) on Mondays and
Thursdays, and I like my deeds to be shown when I am fasting. Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, 747; classed as
saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Targheeb, 1041
6) get up for tahajjud. do many prostrations and ask for help.
Ibn 'Umar (may Allaah be pleased with them both), who said: "The Prophet (Peace & Blessings of Allah
be upon Him) used to perform the night prayers two by two (rak'ahs), then he would end with a single
rak'ah." (Reported by al-Bukhaari, al-Fath, no. 940)
32:16. Their sides forsake their beds, to invoke their Lord in fear and hope, and they spend (in
charity in Allaahs Cause) out of what We have bestowed on them.
Prophet said said: You should pray qiyaam al-layl, for it is the custom of the righteous who came before
you and it brings you closer to your Lord, and expiates sins and prevents misdeeds. Narrated by al-
Tirmidhi, 3549; classed as hasan by al-Albaani in Irwa al-Ghaleel, 452.
7) Tell yourself nothing will happen to you except what Allah swt has decreed or due to the
evils of our own actions.
9:51. Say: "Nothing will happen to us except what Allah has decreed for us: He is our protector":
and on Allah let the Believers put their trust.
57:22. No calamity befalls on the earth or in yourselves but is inscribed in the Book of Decrees (Al-
Lauh Al-Mahfuz), before We bring it into existence. Verily, that is easy for Allah
4.79.Whatever evil befalls you, it is from your own self"
8) Stop being part of places where theres much fitnah and fahsa immediately.
6:70. Leave alone those who take their religion to be mere play and amusement, and are deceived
by the life of this world. But proclaim (to them) this (truth): that every soul delivers itself to ruin
by its own acts: it will find for itself no protector or intercessor except Allah. if it offered every
ransom, (or reparation), none will be accepted: such is (the end of) those who deliver themselves
to ruin by their own acts: they will have for drink (only) boiling water, and for punishment, one
most grievous: for they persisted in rejecting Allah.
3:118. O ye who believe! Take not into your intimacy those outside your ranks: They will not fail
to corrupt you. They only desire your ruin: Rank hatred has already appeared from their mouths:
What their hearts conceal is far worse. We have made plain to you the Signs, if ye have wisdom.
9) Have you been ungrateful in the past to Allahs mercies upon you and gone on to do sins of
the same kind? Desist. repent much, do not delay! Beg for mercy. He is oft returning!
10.12. and when harm touches man, He invokes us, lying down on his side, or sitting or standing.
but when we have removed his harm from him, He passes on his Way as if He had never invoked us
for a harm that touched him! Thus it seems fair to the Musrifn that which they used to do.
12: 53. "And I free not myself (from the blame). Verily, the (human) self is inclined to evil, except
when my Lord bestows His Mercy (upon whom He wills). Verily, my Lord is Oft-Forgiving, Most
Merciful."
10) Do not praise evil or support it.
4:85. Whoever recommends and helps a good cause becomes a partner therein: And whoever
recommends and helps an evil cause, shares in its burden: And Allah hath power over all things.
11) Do Istiqara
It is clear that it is a mistake to limit istikhaarah to rare cases or few issues. Rather the Muslim should
turn to Allaah and seek His guidance in all his affairs concerning which he is hesitant. Zaynab bint Jahsh
(may Allaah be pleased with her) prayed istikhaarah when she received a proposal of marriage from the
Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), and al-Nawawi (may Allaah have mercy on him)
commented on that by saying in Sharh Muslim (9/224):
This shows that it is mustahabb to pray istikhaarah for the one who is thinking about doing something,
whether the matter is evidently good or not. This is in accordance with the hadeeth of Jaabir in Saheeh
al-Bukhaari: The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) used to teach us pray
istikhaarah in all things. And perhaps she prayed istikhaarah because she was afraid that she might fall
short with regard to his rights (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him).
12) do duas much
40:60 And your Lord says:;Call on (supplicate to) Me; I will answer your ( Dua -Prayer): But those
who are too arrogant to serve Me will surely find themselves in Hell in humiliation.
13) save your eeman. dont sit with those who have no emaan or less emaan or who do much
of nothing but vain talking. you laugh along with those vulgar you become a part of them.
subhanAllah .be careful.!
6.68.When thou seest men engaged in vain discourse about Our signs, turn away from them unless
they turn to a different theme. If Satan ever makes thee forget, then after recollection, sit not
thou in the company of those who do wrong. "
28.55.And when they hear vain talk, they turn away there from and say: 'To us our deeds, and to
you yours; peace be to you: we seek not the ignorant.'"
70.42."So leave them to plunge in vain talk and play about, until they encounter that Day of theirs
which they have been promised!-
74.45."(The sinners will say 'But we used to talk vanities with vain talkers;'"
14) Have the attitude of a believer
31.17.O my son! Establish Salaah, enjoin good, forbid evil, and bear with Sabr whatever befalls on
you, indeed, that is quite a resolute, high caliber of the tasks."
15) Do not take your desires as your god!
25:43. Have you seen him who has taken as his ilah (god) his own desire? Would you then be a
Wakil (a disposer of his affairs or a watcher) over him?
16) Submit to qadr and strive to overcome what you think you should and develop the
wisdom to know the difference
64:11. No kind of calamity can occur, except by the leave of Allah. and if any one believes in
Allah, ((Allah)) guides his heart (aright): for Allah knows all things.
17) Know that the life of this world is a deception and dont be swayed by all that you see
around you
3:185 Every soul shall have a taste of death: And only on the Day of Judgment shall you be paid
your full recompense. Only he who is saved far from the Fire and admitted to the Garden will have
attained the object (of Life): For the life of this world is but goods and chattels of deception
18) Know and be firm knowing that Allah swt is the reality He has given us a life to lead and
now its up to us we accept it and lead it as per His guidance or follow the ever changing ways
of mankind.
10: 31. Say: "Who is it that sustains you (in life) from the sky and from the earth? or who is it that
has power over hearing and sight? And who is it that brings out the living from the dead and the
dead from the living? and who is it that rules and regulates all affairs?" They will soon say,
"(Allah)". Say, "will ye not then show piety (to Him)?"
3:19 'Inna Ad-Dina `Inda Allahi Al-'Islam
3:19 Indeed, the religion in the sight of Allah is Islam
19) who are the greatest losers amongst us?
18.103-104.Say: "Shall I inform you of the greatest losers in their actions? People whose efforts in
the life of this world are misguided while they suppose that they are doing good."
20) Finally dont let your heart be locked up or gather rust
Allah (SWT) says, Will they not then ponder over the Quran, or is it that they have locks on their
hearts!? [Quran, 47:24]. Also (This is) a Scripture that We have revealed unto thee, full of blessing,
that they may ponder its revelations, and that men of understanding may reflect. [Quran, 38:29]
The Holy Prophet said: Undoubtedly, the heart gets rusted like metal gets rusted when water goes
over it. The People asked, How can they [hearts] be cleaned. The Prophet replied, To remember
death in abundance and to recite the Holy Quran. (Mishkat/tabrizi).
The holy Quran acts as a cleaner for the hearts of the people. The more you read it the cleaner would
be your heart.

21) hold firm to live and die as a muslim

3:102. O you who believe! Fear Allah (by doing all that He has ordered and by abstaining from all
that He has forbidden) as He should be feared. [Obey Him, be thankful to Him, and remember Him
always], and die not except in a state of Islam (as Muslims) with complete submission to Allah.
33.21.An excellent pattern have ye in the Messenger of God.

Reviving the sunnah
The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) urged us to adhere to the sunnah and not
neglect it. He said: You must adhere to my Sunnah and the way of the Rightly-Guided Caliphs who
come after me. Adhere to it and cling to it strongly, and beware of newly-invented matters, for every
newly-invented matter is an innovation (bidah) and every innovation is a going astray. Narrated by Abu
Dawood (4607) and classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh Abi Dawood



7.8 AHADITH ON GOOD MANNERS AND BEHAVIOR
Muslim spends something on his family
Bukhari :: Book 7 :: Volume 64 :: Hadith 263
Narrated Abu Mas'ud Al-Ansari:
The Prophet said, "When a Muslim spends something on his family intending to receive Allah's reward it
is regarded as Sadaqa for him."

One who looks after a widow or a poor person
Bukhari :: Book 7 :: Volume 64 :: Hadith 265
Narrated Abu Huraira:
The Prophet said, "The one who looks after a widow or a poor person is like a Mujahid (warrior) who
fights for Allah's Cause, or like him who performs prayers all the night and fasts all the day."

Leave your inheritors wealthy than leave them poor,
Bukhari :: Book 7 :: Volume 64 :: Hadith 266
Narrated Saad:
The Prophet visited me at Mecca while I was ill. I said (to him), "I have property; May I bequeath all my
property in Allah's Cause?" He said, "No." I said, "Half of it?" He said, "No." I said, "One third of it?" He
said, "One-third (is alright), yet it is still too much, for you'd better leave your inheritors wealthy than
leave them poor, begging of others. Whatever you spend will be considered a Sadaqa for you, even the
mouthful of food you put in the mouth of your wife. Anyhow Allah may let you recover, so that some
people may benefit by you and others be harmed by you."
Bukhari :: Book 7 :: Volume 64 :: Hadith 269
Narrated Abu Huraira:
Allah's Apostle said, "The best alms is that which you give when you are rich, and you should start first to
support your dependants."
Bukhari :: Book 7 :: Volume 64 :: Hadith 276
Narrated Al-Aswad bin Yazid:
I asked 'Aisha "What did the Prophet use to do at home?" She said, "He used to work for his family, and
when he heard the Adhan (call for the prayer), he would go out."


Women who are kind to their young ones and who look after their husband's
property . "
Bukhari :: Book 7 :: Volume 64 :: Hadith 278
Narrated Abu Huraira:
Allah's Apostle said, "The best women among the camel riders, are the women of Quraish." (Another
narrator said) The Prophet said, "The righteous among the women of Quraish are those who are kind to
their young ones and who look after their husband's property . "
The best of women are those that please him [her husband] when he sees her, obeys him when she is
commanded, and who does not secretly betray him with regards to herself and her money in that which
he dislikes." [Ahmad, Sahh]

"The best of women are those that please you when you see them, obey you when commanded, and
who safeguard themselves and your money in your absence." [Tabarni, Sahh]
The definition of the best muslim

"I asked the Messenger of God : Who is the best Muslim? The Messenger of God replied, "He is the one
from whom Muslims are safe from the evil of his tongue and hands."
(Muslim)

Deriding people in their presence by making negative facial expressions or by hand gestures while they
are unaware is also a form of backbiting.

We need to beware of the slipping of our tongues

"When man wakes up in the morning each day, all parts of the body warn the tongue saying, Fear God
as regards us for we are at your mercy; if you are upright, we will be upright and if you are crooked, we
become crooked."
(At-Tirmidhee)

Five before the other five
The Prophet sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam frequently made the following supplication: Oh Allah, I seek
your protection from, alajz which means the inability to do something. And when someone said, I can't
do that, The Prophet sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam would seek protection from such negative speech by
adding: and I seek your protection (Oh Allah) from alkasl which is translated as laziness.
(Bukhari)

And in the Mustadrak of al-Hkim, it is reported that Ibn Abbs narrated that the Messenger of Allh
(Sallallahu 'Alaihi Wa Sallam) said to a man while advising him:
take advantage of five things before five other things: from your youth before your old age, your health
before your sickness, your richness before your poverty, your free time before you become occupied,
and from your life before your death."

Give food to the hungry, pay a visit to the sick

Narrated Abu Musa Al-Ash'ari:
The Prophet said, "Give food to the hungry, pay a visit to the sick and release (set free) the one in
captivity (by paying his ransom)."

Eat with your right hand
Bukhari :: Book 7 :: Volume 65 :: Hadith 288
Narrated 'Umar bin AbiSalama:
I was a boy under the care of Allah's Apostle and my hand used to go around the dish while I was eating.
So Allah's Apostle said to me, 'O boy! Mention the Name of Allah and eat with your right hand, and eat
of the dish what is nearer to you." Since then I have applied those instructions when eating.

Share your food

Patience and the believer
Bukhari :: Book 7 :: Volume 70 :: Hadith 547
Narrated Abu Huraira:
Allah's Apostle said, "The example of a believer is that of a fresh tender plant; from whatever direction
the wind comes, it bends it, but when the wind becomes quiet, it becomes straight again. Similarly, a
believer is afflicted with calamities (but he remains patient till Allah removes his difficulties.) And an
impious wicked person is like a pine tree which keeps hard and straight till Allah cuts (breaks) it down
when He wishes." (See Hadith No. 558, Vol. 9.)

Feed the hungry
Bukhari :: Book 7 :: Volume 70 :: Hadith 552
Narrated Abu Muisa Al-Ash'ari:
The Prophet said, "Feed the hungry, visit the sick, and set free the captives."
Deeds loved by Allah swt

'I asked the Prophet 'Which deed is loved most by Allah?" He replied, 'To offer prayers at their early (very
first) stated times.' " 'Abdullah asked, "What is the next (in goodness)?" The Prophet said, "To be good
and dutiful to one's parents," 'Abdullah asked, "What is the next (in goodness)?" The Prophet said, To
participate in Jihad for Allah's Cause." 'Abdullah added, "The Prophet narrated to me these three things,
and if I had asked more, he would have told me more."

Who is more entitled to be treated with the best companionship?
Bukhari :: Book 8 :: Volume 73 :: Hadith 2
Narrated Abu Huraira:
A man came to Allah's Apostle and said, "O Allah's Apostle! Who is more entitled to be treated with the

man asked for the fourth time, "Who is next?" The Prophet said, "Your father. "

Serve your parents
Bukhari :: Book 8 :: Volume 73 :: Hadith 3

Bukhari :: Book 8 :: Volume 73 :: Hadith 4
Narrated 'Abdullah bin 'Amr:
Allah's Apostle said. "It is one of the greatest sins that a man should curse his parents." It was asked (by
the people), "O Allah's Apostle! How does a man curse his parents?" The Prophet said, "'The man abuses
the father of another man and the latter abuses the father of the former and abuses his mother."

Some of the deeds Allah has forbidden
Bukhari :: Book 8 :: Volume 73 :: Hadith 6
Narrated Al-Mughira:
The Prophet said, "Allah has forbidden you ( 1 ) to be undutiful to your mothers (2) to withhold (what you
should give) or (3) demand (what you do not deserve), and (4) to bury your daughters alive. And Allah
has disliked that (A) you talk too much about others ( B), ask too many questions (in religion), or (C)
waste your property."

The biggest of the great sins
Bukhari :: Book 8 :: Volume 73 :: Hadith 7
Narrated Abu Bakra:
Allah's Apostle said thrice, "Shall I not inform you of the biggest of the great sins?" We said, "Yes, O
Allah's Apostle" He said, "To join partners in worship with Allah: to be undutiful to one's parents." The
Prophet sat up after he had been reclining and added, "And I warn you against giving forged statement
and a false witness; I warn you against giving a forged statement and a false witness." The Prophet kept
on saying that warning till we thought that he would not stop.
Bukhari :: Book 8 :: Volume 73 :: Hadith 9
Narrated Asma' bint Abu Bakr:
My mother came to me, hoping (for my favor) during the lifetime of the Prophet asked the Prophet, "May
I treat her kindly?" He replied, "Yes." Ibn 'Uyaina said, "Then Allah revealed: 'Allah forbids you not with

Expressing ones love for ones children
Bukhari :: Book 8 :: Volume 73 :: Hadith 26
Narrated Abu Huraira:
Allah's Apostle kissed Al-Hasan bin Ali while Al-Aqra' bin Habis At-Tamim was sitting beside him. Al-
Aqra said, "I have ten children and I have never kissed anyone of them," Allah's Apostle cast a look at
him and said, "Whoever is not merciful to others will not be treated mercifully."

Allah has divided mercy into 100 parts
Bukhari :: Book 8 :: Volume 73 :: Hadith 29
Narrated Abu Huraira:
I heard Allah's Apostle saying, Allah divided Mercy into one-hundred parts and He kept its ninety-nine
parts with Him and sent down its one part on the earth, and because of that, its one single part, His
creations are Merciful to each other, so that even the mare lifts up its hoofs away from its baby animal,
lest it should trample on it."

Narrated Anas bin Malik:
A bedouin urinated in the mosque and the people ran to (beat) him. Allah's Apostle said, "Do not interrupt

over the place of urine.
One believer to another
Bukhari :: Book 8 :: Volume 73 :: Hadith 55
Narrated Abu Musa:
The Prophet said, "A believer to another believer is like a building whose different parts enforce each
other." The Prophet then clasped his hands with the fingers interlaced. (At that time) the Prophet was
sitting and a man came and begged or asked for something. The Prophet faced us and said, "Help and
recommend him and you will receive the reward for it, and Allah will bring about what He will through
His Prophet's tongue."

Bukhari :: Book 8 :: Volume 73 :: Hadith 58

Do not incite others
Muslim :: Book 41 : Hadith 7003
Nafi' reported that Ibn 'Umar met IbnSi'id on some of the paths of Medina and he said to him a word
which enraged him and he was so much swollen with anger that the way was blocked. Ibn 'Umar went

incite IbnSayyad in spite of the fact that you knew it would be the extreme anger which would make
Dajjal appear in the world?
Seek refuge with Allah when angry
Bukhari :: Book 4 :: Volume 54 :: Hadith 502
Narrated Sulaiman bin Surd:
While I was sitting in the company of the Prophet, two men abused each other and the face of one of
them became red with anger, and his jugular veins swelled (i.e. he became furious). On that the Prophet
said, "I know a word, the saying of which will cause him to relax, if he does say it. If he says: 'I seek
Refuge with Allah from Satan.' then all is anger will go away." Somebody said to him, "The Prophet has
said, 'Seek refuge with Allah from Satan."' The angry man said, "Am I mad?"

Four things told to ali ra

Muslim :: Book 22 : Hadith 4876
Abu Tufail 'Amir b. Withila reported: I was in the company of 'Ali b. AbiTalib, when a person came to
him, and said: What was it that Allah's Apostle (may peace be upon him) told you in secret? Thereupon
he (hadrat 'Ali) was enraged and said: Allah's Apostle (may peace be upon him) did not tell me anything
in secret that he hid from people, except that he told me four things. He said: Commander of Faithful,
what are these? He said: Allah cursed him who cursed his father; Allah cursed him who sacrificed for
anyone besides Allah; and Allah cursed him who accommodates an innovator (in religion) ; and Allah
cursed him who changed the minarets (the boundary lines) of the land.
Tattooing is haram
Bukhari :: Book 7 :: Volume 72 :: Hadith 826
Narrated IbnMas'ud:
Allah has cursed those women who practise tattooing or get it done for themselves, and those who
remove hair from their faces, and those who create spaces between their teeth artificially to look

Allah's Apostle has cursed and who are cursed in Allah's Book too?

Muslim :: Book 4 : Hadith 1106
Bukhari :: Book 8 :: Volume 80 :: Hadith 747
Kindness towards animals
Narrated Abu Huraira:
Allah's Apostle said, "While a man was walking he felt thirsty and went down a well and drank water
from it. On coming out of it, he saw a dog panting and eating mud because of excessive thirst. The man
said, 'This (dog) is suffering from the same problem as that of mine. So he (went down the well), filled
his shoe with water, caught hold of it with his teeth and climbed up and watered the dog. Allah thanked
him for his (good) deed and forgave him." The people asked, "O Allah's Apostle! Is there a reward for us
in serving (the) animals?" He replied, "Yes, there is a reward for serving any animate."


Muslim is the brother of another Muslim
Bukhari :: Book 3 :: Volume 40 :: Hadith 551
"A Muslim is the brother of another Muslim. He does not oppress him, nor does he leave him at the
mercy of others
Relieves from a believer some grief pertaining to this world
[Sahih Muslim]
It was related on the authority of Abu Hurairah, (may Allah be pleased with him), that the Prophet,
Peace Be Upon Him Said;Whosoever relieves from a believer some grief pertaining to this world, Allah
will relieve from him some grief pertaining to the Hereafter. Whosoever alleviates the difficulties of a
needy person who cannot pay his debt, Allah will alleviate his difficulties in both this world and the
Hereafter. Whosoever conceals the faults of a Muslim, Allah will conceal his faults in this world and the
Hereafter. Allah will aid a servant (of His) so long as the servant aids his brother. Whosoever follows a
path to seek knowledge therein, Allah will make easy for him a path to Paradise.

One limb of it complains, the rest of the body reacts
[Muslim]
An-Numanibn Bashir reported that the Messenger of Allah (SAS) said:
The likeness of the believers in their mutual love, mercy and affection is that of the body. When one
limb of it complains, the rest of the body reacts with sleeplessness and fever

Your smile to your brother is a sadaqah
[Bukhari and Muslim]
Abu Dhar reported that the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said:
Your smile to your brother is a sadaqah (charitable act) for you. Your commanding the right and
forbidding the wrong is a sadaqah. Your guiding a man in the land of misguidance is a sadaqah for you.
Your seeing (showing the way) for a man with bad eyesight is a sadaqah for you. Your removing a stone
or thorn or bone from the road is a sadaqah for you. Your emptying your bucket of water into your
brothers (empty) bucket is a sadaqah for you.

Faith has over 70/60 branches
The Prophet (s) said, Faith (Belief) consists of more than sixty branches (i.e. parts). And Haya(shame,
humility, self-respect, honor, bashfulness, shyness) is a part of faith. (Bukhari)
[Tirmidhi]
It is narrated on the authority of Abu Huraira that the Messenger of Allah (may peace and blessings be
upon him) said: Faith has over seventy branches or over sixty branches, the most excellent of which is
the declaration that there is no god but Allah, and the humblest of which is the, removal of what is
injurious from the path: and modesty is the branch of faith.
The Prophet never used bad language
[Sahih Muslim]
Narrated 'Abdullah bin 'Amr: "The Prophet never used bad language neither a 'Fahish nor a Mutafahish.
He used to say 'The best amongst you are those who have the best manners and character.'
Pride prevents one from being admitted into jannah
[ SahihBukhari]
It Is narrated on the authority of Abdullah b. Mas'ud that the Apostle of Allah (may peace be upon him),
observed: He who has in his heart the weight of a mustard seed of pride shall not enter Paradise. A
person (amongst his hearers) said: Verily a person loves that his dress should be fine, and his shoes
should be fine. He (the Holy Prophet) remarked: Verily, Allah is Graceful and He loves Grace. Pride is
disdaining the truth (out of self-conceit) and contempt for the people.

Signs of nifaq/hypocricy
[Sahih Muslim]
Narrated 'Abdullah bin 'Amr: "The Prophet said, "Whoever has the following four
(characteristics) will be a pure hypocrite and whoever has one of the following four
characteristics will have one characteristic of hypocrisy unless and until he gives it up.
Whenever he is entrusted, he betrays.
Whenever he speaks, he tells a lie.
Whenever he makes a covenant, he proves treacherous.
Whenever he quarrels, he behaves in a very imprudent, evil and insulting manner."

Show mercy to mankind to gain Allahs mercy
[ SahihBukhari]
Narrated Jarir bin 'Abdullah: "Allah's Apostle said, 'Allah will not be merciful to those who are not
merciful to mankind.'
Entertain your guest generously
[ SahihBukhari]
Narrated Abu Huraira: "Allah's Apostle said, "Anybody who believes in Allah and the Last Day should not
harm his neighbor, and anybody who believes in Allah and the Last Day should entertain his guest
generously and anybody who believes in Allah and the Last Day should talk what is good or keep quiet.
(i.e. abstain from all kinds of evil and dirty talk).
Strong is one who controls his anger
[SahihBukhari]
Abu Huraira reported Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: The strong-man is not one
who wrestles well but the strong man is one who controls himself when he is in a fit of rage.
Neither nurse mutual hatred, nor jealousy, nor enmity
[Muslim]
"Anas b. Malik reported Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: Neither nurse mutual
hatred, nor jealousy, nor enmity, and become as fellow brothers and servants of Allah. It is not lawful for
a Muslim that he should keep his relations estranged with his brother beyond three days
Rights of one muslim over the other
[Muslim]
Abu Huraira reported Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: Don't nurse grudge and
don't bid him out for raising the price and don't nurse aversion or enmity and don't enter into a
transaction when the others have entered into that transaction and be as fellow-brothers and servants
of Allah. A Muslim is the brother of a Muslim. He neither oppresses him nor humiliates him nor looks
down upon him. The piety is here, (and while saying so) he pointed towards his chest thrice. It is a
serious evil for a Muslim that he should look down upon his brother Muslim. All things of a Muslim are
inviolable for his brother in faith: his blood, his wealth and his honour
Dont be greedy
[Muslim]
"The son of Adam reaches the old age and two of his habits do not leave him. One is greed and the
second is the unending succession of hopes."

[Muslim]
If the son of Adam is given a valley of gold, he will desire to have another one. And if the other is also
given, he will be greedy to have the third one. The hunger of Adam's son will not be satisfied except
when his remains are mixed with the dust. And the one who turns to Allah, Allah accepts his
repentance."
33.21. indeed In the Messenger of Allh (Muhammad Sal-Allaahu 'alayhe Wa Sallam) You have a
good example to follow for Him who hopes In (the Meeting with) Allh and the Last Day and
remembers Allh much.

Summary of some of the Teachings of the prophet s.as (not exact words but the
Gist of his teachings)

7.9 PRIDE WORLD(references to be added)
Pride
y The proud will not enter Paradise, nor a violent speaker.
y He will not enter hell, who hath faith equal to a single grain of mustard seed in his heart; and he will not
enter Paradise, who hath pride equal to a single grain of mustard seed, in his heart.
y Muhammad s.a.s said, "That person will not enter Paradise who hath one atom of pride in his heart." And
a man present said, "Verily, a man is fond of having good clothes and good shoes." Muhammad s.a.s
replied, "Allah is Beauty and delighteth in the beautiful; but pride is holding man in contempt."
Progress
y Everyone is divinely furthered in accordance with his character.
y It is your own conduct which will lead you to reward or punishment, as if you had been destined therefor.
y Every human being hath two inclinations - one prompting him to good and impelling him thereto, and the
other prompting him to evil and thereto impelling him; but Divine assistance is near, and he who asketh
the help of Allah in contending with the evil promptings of his own heart obtaineth it.
y The best of good acts in Allah swt sight is that which is constantly attended to although maybe in a small
degree.
Prophecies
y Prophet s.a.s warned :I swear by the Lord, if ye did but know what I know of the future state, verily ye
would laugh little and cry much.
y Verily, of things which I fear for you, after my departure from the world, is this: that the ornaments and
goods of the world may be pleasing to you. Then a man said, "O Messenger of Allah! Doth good bring
harm?" Muhammad s.a.s said, "Verily good doth not bring harm: if there be much wealth it is a blessing;
and there is no harm in it, unless from stinginess and extravagance; like the spring, which causeth nothing
to grow but what is good: and harm and destruction are from abuse thereof."
Punishment
y Allah doth not remove anyone out of the world, but that he wisheth to pardon him; and by the diseases of
his body and distress for food, He exacteth the punishment of every fault that lieth on his shoulder.
y Verily the reward is as great as the misfortune; that is, the more unfortunate and calamitous one is, the
greater and more perfect his reward. And verrily, when Allah loveth a people, He entangleth it in
misfortune; therefore, he who is resigned to the plesure of Allah, in misfortune, for him is Allahs favor.
Purity
y They will enter the Garden of Bliss who have a true, pure, and merciful heart.
y Religion is admonition, and it means being pure.
Relatives
y The best of you, before Allah and His creation, are those who are best in their own families, and I am the
best to my family.
y He is the most perfect of Muslims, whose disposition is most liked by his own family.
y The favor of Allah doth not descend upon that family in which is one who deserts his relations.
y He is not a perfect performer of the duties of relationship who doeth good to his relatives as they do good
to him. He is perfect who doeth good to his relatives when they do not do good to him.
y Messenger of Allah.. Verily I have done a great crime; is there any act by which I may repent? He said,
"Have you a mother?" "No," said the questioner. "Have you an aunt?" asked Muhammad. He said, "Yes, I
have." Muhammad s .a.s said, "Go, do good to her, and your crime will be pardoned."
y The duty of a junior to a senior brother is as that of a child to its father.
y Giving alms to the poor hath the reward of one alms; but that given to kindred hath two rewards; one, the
reward of alms, the other, the reward of helping relations.
y A man's first charity should be to his own family, if poor.
Repentance
y A sincere repenter of faults is like him who hath committed none.
Reverence
y Muhammad s.a.s said one day to His companions, "Reverence Allah as becommeth you." They said,
"Verily, O Apostle of Allah, we do reverence Him, and praise be to Allah who hath imbued us with it."
Then Muhammad s.a.s said, "It is not so; but whoever reverenceth Allah as it is suitable for him to do
must guard his head from humbling itself to others, and from pride and arrogance towards Allah and
Allah;s creatures; he must guard his senses from whatever is wrong, and must guard his mouth from
eating forbidden things, and his heart from receiving what is prohibited; and he must keep his death in
mind, and the rotting of his bones. And whoever wisheth for future rewards must abandon the ornaments
of the world. Therefore, anyone attending to the aforementioned points has verily reverenced Allah as it
his duty to do.
Riches
y Riches are not from and abundance of wordly goods but from a contented mind.
y It is difficult for a man laden with riches to climb the steep path which leads to bliss.
y Whoever desireth the world and its riches, in a lawful manner, in order to withold himself from begging,
and for a livelihood for his family, and for being kind to his neighbor, will come to Allah with his face
bright as the full moon on the fourteenth night of the lunar month.
y Wealth, properly employed, is a blessing; and a man may lawfully endeavor to increase it by honest
means.
tolerance
y A Bedouin was standing in the mosque of the Prophet, and defiled it; when he was immediately taken
hold of; and Muhammad s.a.s said, "Let him alone, and throw a skin of water upon the spot; because ye
were not created but of comforters and not sent to create hardships." And they let him alone till he had
done, and then Muhammad s.a.s called the Bedouin to him, and said, "This mosque is not a proper place
for that, or any kind of filth; mosques are only for the mention of Allah, saying prayers, and reading the
quran."
Self-Indulgence
y Muhammad s.a.s asked His companions, "What are your opinions of the merits of that person, who drinks
liquor,committeth adultery, and stealeth? What should his punishment be?" They said, "Allah and His
Messenge know best." He said, "These are great sins, and the punishment for them very dire."
Servants
y To those of your servants who please you give to eat what you eat yourself; and clothe them as yourself;
but those who do not please you, part with them; and punish not Allahs creatures.
y He will not enter Paradise who behaveth ill to his slaves. The companions said, "O Apostle of Allah! have
you not told us, that there will be a great many slaves and orphans amongst your disciples?" He said, "Yes;
then be kind to them as to your own children, and give them to eat what you eat yourselves. The slaves
that say their prayers are your brothers.
y Zaid, r.a spoke how he served the prophet for ten years and he(Muhammad s.a.s never said 'Uff,' to me;
and never said, 'Why did you do so?' and never said, 'Why did you not do so?'"
Sick
y Feed the hungry and visit a sick person, and free the captive, if he be unjustly confined. Assist any person
oppressed, whether Muslim or non-Muslim.
y Whoever visiteth a sick person, an angel calleth from heaven, "Be happy in the world, and happy be your
walking, and take you a habitation in Paradise." Whoever visiteth a sick person always entereth into and
swims in a sea of mercy until he sitteth down; and when he sitteth, he is drowned therein.
y When you go to visit the sick, comfort his grief and say, "You will get well and live long," because although
this saying will not prevent what is predestined, it will solace his soul.
y Verily Allah will say on the Day of Judgement, O children of Adam! I was sick and ye did not visit Me." And
the sons of Adam will say, "O our defender, how could we visit Thee? For thou art the Lord of the
Universe, and art free from sickness." And Allah will say, "O men! Such a one was sick and you did not visit
him." And Allah will say, "O children of Adam, I asked you for food, and ye gave it me not?" And the
children of Adam will say, "O our patron, how could we give Thee food, seeing Thou art the cherisher of
the Universe, and art free from hunger and eating?" And Allah will say, "Such a one asked you for bread
and you did not give it him.
Silence
y Much silence and a good disposition, there are no two works better than those.
Sin
y Can anyone walk through water without wetting his feet? The companions replied, "No;" Muhammads.a.s
said, "Such is the condition of those of the world; they are not safe from sins."

Truth
y He is not of me who, when he speaketh, speaketh falsely; who, when he promiseth, breaketh his
promises; and who, when trust is reposed in him, faileth in his trust.
y No man is true in the truest sense of the word but he who is true in work, in deed, and in thought.
y Strive always to excel in virtue and truth.
y It is not worthy of a speaker of truth to curse people.
y Appropriate to yourselves the truth. Avoid lying.
y Say what is true, although it may be bitter and displeasing to people.
Understanding
y It is not a sixth or a tenth of a man's devotion which is acceptable to God, but only such portions thereof
as he offereth with understanding and true devotional spirit.
y Verily, a man hath performed prayers, fasts, charity, pilgrimage and all other good works; but he will not
be rewarded except by the proportion of his understanding.
Usury
y The taker of usury and the giver of it, and the writer of its papers and the witness to it, are equal in crime.
Widows
y A giver of maintenance to widows and the poor, is lke a bestower in the way of God, an utterer of prayers
all the night, and a keeper of constant fast.
Wives
y Admonish your wives with kindness.
y A Muslim must not hate his wife; and if he be displeased with one bad quality in her, then let him be
pleased with another that is good.
y Do you beat your own wife as you would a slave? That must you not do.
y I (Muaviyah b. Haidah) said, "O Apostle of God! What is my duty to my wife?" He said, "That you give her
to eat as you eat yourself, and clothe her as you clothe yourself; and do not slap her in the face nor abuse
her, nor separate yourself from her in displeasure.
y Give your wife good counsel; and if she has goodness in her, she will soon take it, and leave off idle
talking; and do not beat your noble wife like a slave.
y Muhammad s.a.s said, "Beat not your wives." Then Omar came to the Rasul (Muhammad s.a.s ) and said,
"Wives have got the upper hand from hearing this."
y He is the most perfect Muslim whose disposition is best; and the best of you are they who behave best to
their wives.
y A virtuous wife is a man's best treasure.
Women
y Women are the twin halves of men.
y The world and all things in it are valuable; but the most valuable thing in the world is a virtuous woman.
y The best women are the virtuous; they are the most affectionate to infants, and the most careful of their
husband's property.
y When a woman performeth the five times of prayer, and fasteth the month of Ramadan, and is chaste,
and is not disobedient to her husband, then tell her to enter Paradise by whichever door she liketh.
y Verily a great number of women are assembled near my family, complaining of their hubands; and those
men who ill-treat their wives do not behave well. He is not of my way who teacheth a woman to stray.
y Whoever doeth good to girls, it will be a curtain to him from hell-fire.
y Whoever brings up two girls till they come of age, will be in the next world along with me, like my two
fingers joining each other.
y Whoever brings up three daughters, or three sisters, and teacheth them manners, and is affectionate to
them, till they come of age, may Allah apportion Paradise for him.
y Whoever hath a daughter, and doth not bury her alive or scold her, or prefer his male children to her, may
Allah bring him into Paradise.
y Shall I not point out to you the best of virtues? It is your doing good to your daughter when she is
returned to you having been divorced by her husband.
y Allah enjoins you to treat women well, for they are your mothers, daughters, aunts.
y The rights of women are sacred. See that women are maintained in the rights assigned to them.
y Do not prevent your women from coming to the mosque.
World
y The love of the world is the root of all evil.
y This world is a prison for the Faithful, but a Paradise for unbelievers.
y The world is a magician greater than Harut and Marut, and you should avoid it.
y The world is sweet in the heart, and green to the eye; and verily Allah hath brought you, after those that
went before you: then look to your actions, and abstain from the world and its wickedness.
y The world is as a prison and as a famine to Muslims; and when they leave it you may say they leave
famine and a prison.
y Be in the world like a traveller, or like a passer on, and reckon yourself as of the dead.
y Cursed is this world and cursed is all that is in this world, except the rememberance of Allah and that
which aideth thereto.

You are the best of peoples raised for mankind
3:110


3: 110.You [true believers in Islamic Monotheism, and real followers of Prophet Muhammad and his
Sunnah(legal ways, etc.)] are the best of peoples ever raised up for mankind; you enjoin Al-
Ma'ruf(i.e. Islamic Monotheism and all that Islam has ordained) and forbid Al-Munkar(polytheism,
disbelief and all that Islam has forbidden), and you believe in Allah. And had the people of the
Scripture (Jews and Christians) believed, it would have been better for them; among them are
some who have faith, but most of them are Al-Fasiqun(disobedient to Allah - and rebellious against
Allah's Command).
