Narrated Sahl (R.A):

The Prophet [S.A.W.S] said, “There is a gate in Paradise called Ar-Raiyan, and those who observe fasts will enter through it on the Day of Resurrection and none except them will enter through it. It will be said, ‘Where are those who used to observe fasts?’ They will get up, and none except them will enter through it. After their entry the gate will be closed and nobody will enter through it.”

Sahih Bukhari: Volume 3, Book 31: Fasting, Number 120:



Narrated ‘Abdullah bin ‘Umar (R.A):

ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] said,

“When anyone of you dies, he is shown his place both in the morning and in the evening.

If he is one of the people of Paradise; he is shown his place in it, and if he is from the people of the Hell-Fire; he is shown his place there-in.

Then it is said to him,

‘This is your place till ALLAH [S.W.T] resurrect you on the Day of Resurrection.”

Sahih Bukhari: Volume 2, Book 23: Funerals (Al-Janaa’iz), Number 461:

Advice with regard to women

Reported by Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him): Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said:

“Take my advice with regard to women: Act kindly towards women, for they were created from a rib, and the most crooked part of a rib is its uppermost. If you attempt to straighten it; you will break it, and if you leave it alone it will remain crooked; so act kindly toward women”.

The Three Men

Narated By Abu Waqid Al-Laithi :

While Allah’s Apostle was sitting in the mosque with some people, three men came.Two of them came in front of Allah’s Apostle and the third one went away. The two persons kept on standing before Allah’s Apostle for a while and then one of them found a place in the circle and sat there while the other sat behind the gathering, and the third one went away. When Allah’s Apostle finished his preaching,

he said, “Shall I tell you about these three persons? One of them be-took himself to Allah, so Allah took him into His grace and mercy and accommodated him, the second felt shy from Allah, so Allah sheltered Him in His mercy (and did not punish him), while the third turned his face from Allah and went away, so Allah turned His face from him likewise.”

The Prophet said, “I am here to answer your questions.”

The Prophet said, “Ask whatever you want.”

The man said, “I ask you by your Lord, and the Lord of those who were before you, has Allah sent you as an Apostle to all the mankind?”

The Prophet replied, “By Allah, yes.”

The man further said, “I ask you by Allah. Has Allah ordered you to offer five prayers in a day and night (24 hours).?
