Seven Orders

September 30, 2010 Leave a comment
Narrated Muawiya bin Suwald:  I heard Al-Bara’ bin ‘Azib (may Allah be pleased with them both) saying, “The Prophet Muhammad (may Allah’s peace be upon him) orders us to do seven things and prohibited us from doing seven other things.”  Then Al-Bara’ mentioned the following:
(1) To pay a visit to the sick (inquiring about his health),
(2) to follow funeral processions,
(3) to say to a sneezer, “May Allah be merciful to you” (if he says, “Praise be to Allah!”),
(4) to return greetings,
(5) to help the oppressed,
(6) to accept invitations,
(7) to help others to fulfill their oaths.
[Sahih Bukhari, Volume 3, Book 43, Number 625]

Leave him, for Haya is (a part) of Faith.
