Narrated `Abdullah, A man said, “O Allah’s Messenger (pbuh)! Which sin is the greatest in Allah’s Sight?” The Prophet (pbuh) said, “To set up a rival unto Allah though He Alone created you . ” The man said, “What is next?” The Prophet (pbuh) said, “To kill your son lest he should share your food with you.” The man said, “What is next?” The Prophet said, “To commit illegal sexual intercourse with the wife of your neighbor.” So Allah revealed in confirmation of this narration:– ‘And those who invoke not with Allah, any other god. Nor kill, such life as Allah has forbidden except for just cause nor commit illegal sexual intercourse. And whoever does this shall receive the punishment.’ (25.68)
Abu Shuraih Al-‘Adawf said “My eyes saw the Messenger of Allah, and my ears heard him speaking when he was speaking and he said: ‘Whoever believes in Allah and the Last Day, then let him honor his guest with his reward.’ They said: ‘What is the reward?’ He said: ‘ A day and a night.’ He said: ‘And hospitality is for three days, whatever is beyond that is charity. And whoever believes in Allah and the Last Day, then let him say what is good or keep silent.” (Sahih)
It was narrated that Busr bin Jahhash Al-Quraishi that the Prophet (pbuh) spat in his palm then pointed to it with his index finger and said: “Allah (SWT) says: ‘Do you think you can escape from My punishment, O son of Adam, when I have created you from something like this? When your soul reaches here’ – and (the Prophet (pbuh)) pointed to his throat – ‘You say: I give charity.’ But it is too late for charity?” (Sahih)
Zakah expenditures are only for the poor and for the needy and for those employed to collect [zakah] and for bringing hearts together [for Islam] and for freeing captives [or slaves] and for those in debt and for the cause of Allah and for the [stranded] traveler – an obligation [imposed] by Allah . And Allah is Knowing and Wise.
Ibn Abbas narrated “The Prophet was performing Salat when Abu Jahl came to him and said: ‘Have I not forbidden you from this? Have I not forbidden you from this? Have I not forbidden you from this?’ The Prophet turned and scolded him. So Abu Jahl said: ‘You know that no one has more to call for assistance than me.’ So Allah, Blessed is He and Most High, revealed: Then let him call upon his council. We will call out the guards of Hell.” So Ibn Abbas said: “By Allah, if he had called his council, then the guards of Hell would have seized him.” (Sahih)
Hudhaifah narrated that he performed Salat with the Prophet, and that while he was bowing he would say: (Subhana Rabbiyal Azim); “Glorious is my Lord the Magnificent” and while prostrating: (Subhana Rabbiyal A’la) ‘Glorious is my Lord the Most High.’ And he would not recite an Ayah mentioning mercy, except that he would stop and ask (for mercy), and he would not recite an Ayah mentioning punishment, except that he would stop and seek refuge (with Allah from it). (Sahih)
It was narrated that Abu Hurairah said “The Messenger of Allah said: ‘Indeed, this religion is easy, and no one will ever overburden himself in religion, except that it will overcome him. So seek what is appropriate, and come as close as you can, and receive the glad tidings (that you will be rewarded), and take it easy; and gain strength by worshipping in the mornings, afternoons, and during the last hours of the nights.'” (Sahih)
Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:When this Verse was revealed: “And warn your tribe (O Muhammad (ﷺ)) of near kindred”. (26:214) Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) called the Quraish; when they gathered, he said to them: “O sons of ‘Abd Shams; O sons of Ka’b bin Lu’ai, rescue yourselves from the Fire! O sons of Murrah bin Ka’b, rescue yourselves from the Fire! O sons of ‘Abd Manaf, rescue yourselves from the Fire! O sons of ‘Abdul-Muttalib, rescue yourselves from the Fire! O Fatimah, rescue yourself from the Fire, for I have no power (to protect you) from Allah in anything except that I would sustain relationship with you”.
Ibn Majah (The Chapters Regarding Zakat – 52) It was narrated that Zainab, the wife of Abdullah said: “I asked the Messenger of Allah: ‘Will it be accepted as charity on my part if I spend on my husband and the orphans in my care?’ The Messenger of Allah said: ‘She will have two rewards, the reward for charity and the reward for upholding ties of kinship.'” (Sahih)
It was narrated that Sa’eed bin Jubair said “I said to Ibn Abbas . ‘Can a person who killed a believer intentionally repent?’ He said: ‘No.’ I recited the Verse from Al-Furqan to him: And those who invoke not any other ilah (god) along with Allah, nor kill such person a Allah has forbidden, except but right. He said: ‘This Verse was revealed in Makkah and was abrogated by a verse that was revealed in Al-Madinah: And whoever kills a believer intentionally, his recompense is Hell. (Sahih)
