Facilitate Things for the People

March 5, 2011 Leave a comment

Narrated Abu Musa (may Allah be pleased with him):

That when Allah’s Apostle (may Allah’s peace be upon him) sent him and Mu’adh bin Jabal to Yemen (may Allah be please with them), he said to them:

“Facilitate things for the people (treat the people in the most agreeable way), and do not make things difficult for them, and give them glad tidings, and let them not have aversion (i.e. to make the people hate good deeds) and you should both work in cooperation and mutual understanding, obey each other.”

Abu Musa said, “O Allah’s Apostle! We are in a land in which a drink named Al Bit’ is prepared from honey, and another drink named Al-Mizr is prepared from barley.”  On that, Allah’s Apostle said, “All intoxicants (i.e. all alcoholic drinks) are prohibited.”

[Sahih BukhariVolume 8, Book 73, Number 145]

Narrated Haritha bin Wahb (may Allah be pleased with him):

The Prophet Muhammad (may Allah’s peace be upon him) said:

“Shall I inform you about the people of Paradise?  They comprise every obscure, unimportant, humble person, and if he takes Allah’s oath that he will do that thing, Allah will fulfill his oath (by doing that).

Shall I inform you about the people of the Fire?  They comprise every cruel, violent, proud and conceited person.”

Narrated ‘Abdullah (may Allah be pleased with him):

The Prophet (may Allah’s peace be upon him) said:

“Truthfulness leads to righteousness, and righteousness leads to Paradise.  And a man keeps on telling the truth until he becomes a truthful person.  Falsehood leads to Al-Fajur (i.e. wickedness, evil-doing), and Al-Fajur (wickedness) leads to the (Hell) Fire, and a man may keep on telling lies till he is written before Allah, a liar.”

[Sahih Bukhari; Volume 8, Book 73, Number 116]

Take care of Daughters, Sisters

October 27, 2010 Leave a comment

On the authority of Ibn ‘Abbaas (may Allaah be pleased with him):  The Messenger of Allaah (may Allah’s peace be upon him) said:

“…and whoever takes care of three daughters or three sisters and raises them upon good manerisms, is merciful towards them until Allaah makes them independent of him, Allaah would obligate the entrance to Jannah [Paradise] for him.

A man said: ‘O Messenger of Allaah, or two?’

He responded: ‘or two.’

Even if they said one, he would have said one…”
