Riyad us Saliheen(The Book of Miscellany – 326)


Zainab Ath-Thaqafiyah (May Allah be pleased with her) the wife of ‘Abdullah bin Mas’ud (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: When Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) told the women that they should give Sadaqah (charity), even if it should be some of their jewellery, I returned to ‘Abdullah bin Mas’ud and said, “You are a man who does not possess much, and Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) has commanded us to give Sadaqah. So go and ask him if giving to you will serve the purpose; otherwise, I shall give it to someone else.” He asked me that I should better go myself. I went and found a woman of the Ansar at the door of Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam), waiting to ask a similar question as mine. The Prophet (Sallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) was endowed with dignity, and so we could not go in. When Bilal (May Allah be pleased with him) came out to us, we said to him: “Go to Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) and tell him that there are two women at the door who have come to ask him whether it will serve them to give Sadaqah to their husbands and to orphans who are in their charge, but do not tell him who we are. Bilal (May Allah be pleased with him) went in and asked him, and Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) asked him who the women were. When he told him that they were a woman of the Ansar and Zainab, he asked him which Zainab it was, and when he was told it was the wife of ‘Abdullah bin Mas’ud, he (Sallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) said, “They will have a double reward, one for maintaining the ties of kinship and another for Sadaqah”.[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

Jamiat Tirmidhi(Chapters on Righteousness And Maintaining Good Relations With Relatives – 71)


Abu Hurairah narrated that the Prophet said “Generosity is close to the people and far from the Fire. Stinginess is far from Allah, far from Paradise, far from the people and close to the Fire. The ignorant generous person, is more beloved to Allah than the worshiping stingy person.”(Da’if)

Al-Adab Al-Mufrad( Injustice – 486)


Abu Sa’id reported that the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, “When the believers are saved from the Fire, they will be stopped on a bridge between the Garden and the Fire. They were be interrogated concerning the injustices which occurred between them in this world. When they have been cleansed and they have been disciplined, then they will be given permission to enter the Garden. By the One who holds the soul of Muhammad in His hand, one of them is better guided in his position than he was in this world.”

Hadith 644 (Volume 4)

Narrated ‘Ubada:
The Prophet said, “If anyone testifies that None has the right to be worshipped but Allah Alone Who has no partners, and that Muhammad is His Slave and His Apostle, and that Jesus is Allah’s Slave and His Apostle and His Word which He bestowed on Mary and a Spirit created by Him, and that Paradise is true, and Hell is true, Allah will admit him into Paradise with the deeds which he had done even if those deeds were few.” (Junada, the sub-narrator said, ” ‘Ubada added, ‘Such a person can enter Paradise through any of its eight gates he likes.”)

Ibn Majah(Chapters Regarding Funerals – 59)


It was narrated that Anas bin Malik said “A funeral (procession) passed by the Prophet (pbuh) and they praised (the deceased) and spoke well of him. He said: ‘(Paradise is) guaranteed for him.’ Then another funeral passed by and they spoke badly of him, and he (the Prophet (pbuh)) said: ‘(Hell is) guaranteed for him.’ It was said: ‘O Messenger of Allah, you said that (Paradise was) guaranteed for this one and that (Hell was) guaranteed for the other one.’ He said: ‘It is the testimony of the people, and the believers are the witnesses of Allah on earth.'”

Ibn Majah(Fasting – 1)


It was narrated from Abu Hurairah that the Messenger of Allah (pbuh) said “Every good deed of the son of Adam will be multiplied manifold. A good deed will be multiplied ten times up to as many as seven hundred times, or as much as Allah wills. Allah says: ‘Except for fasting, which is for Me and I shall reward for it. He gives up his desire and his food for My sake.’ The fasting person has two joys, one when he breaks his fast and another when he meets his Lord. The smell that comes from the mouth of a fasting person is better before Allah than the fragrance of musk.”

Abu Dawood(Purification (Kitab Al-Taharah) – 251)


Narrated Umm Salamah said, one of the Muslims asked, and Zubair reported: Umm Salamah (herself) asked: Messenger of Allah. I am a women who keeps her hair closely plaited; should I undo it when I wash after sexual defilement? He replied (no), it is enough for you to throw three handfuls over it. Then pour water over all your body and will be purified.

Jamiat Tirmidhi(The Book on the Description of Hellfire – 20)


Abu Hurairah narrated that the Prophet (s.a.w) said “This Fire of yours, which the sons of Adam kindle, is one part from seventy parts of the heat of the Hell.” They said: “By Allah! Would it not have been enough O Messenger of Allah?!” He said: “It is sixty-nine parts more.

Shamail Tirmidhi(The Fasting Of Sayyidina Rasoolullah – 296)


Awf bin Malik Radhiyallahu anhu says: “I spent a night with Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam. Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam used the miswaak (cleaned the teeth), then performed the wudhu, then stood up in salaah. I stood with him (joined him). He began reciting the Surah Baqarah. Whenever he came across an aayah of mercy, he paused and beseeched Allah of His Mercy. In the same manner when he came across an aayah of adhaab (punishment), he paused and beseeched Allah for His forgiveness from adhaab. He then performed ruku’, and remained in the ruku for as long as he had spent in the standing posture. He recited in the ruku’:Subhaana dhil jabaruti wal-malakuti wal-kibri-yaa-i wal-‘a-za-mati.Translation: Glory be to the Lord of the Might, the Dominion, the Majesty, and the Magnificence.Thereafter he performed the sajdah, which was as long as the ruku and recited the same du’aa in the sajdah. He then recited the Surah Aali Imraan (in the second rakah), thereafter one surah (in each rakah) and did the same”

Jamiat Tirmidhi(The Book on the Description of Hellfire – 24)


Abu Hurairah narrated that the Messenger of Allah (pbuh) said: “The Fire complained to its Lord. It said: ‘Some parts of me consume other parts.’ So He allowed it to take two breaths: one during the winter, and during the summer. As for the breath in the winter then it is Zamharir, and as for the breath in the summer then it is Samum. (Sahih)
