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.”

Narated By Anas bin Malik :

Once the Prophet wrote a letter or had an idea of writing a letter. The Prophet was told that they (rulers) would not read letters unless they were sealed.So the Prophet got a silver ring made with “Muhammad Allah’s Apostle” engraved on it.

When would the Hour (Doomsday) take place?

Narated By Abu Huraira :

While the Prophet was saying something in a gathering,

a Bedouin came and asked him,“When would the Hour (Doomsday) take place?”

Allah’s Apostle continued his talk, so some people said that Allah’s Apostle had heard the question, but did not like what that Bedouin had asked. Some of them said that Alllah’s Apostle had not heard it.

When the Prophet finished his speech, he said, “Where is the questioner, who enquired about the Hour (Doomsday)?”

The Bedouin said, “I am here, O Allah’s Apostle .”

Then the Prophet said, “When honesty is lost, then wait for the Hour (Doomsday).”

The Bedouin said, “How will that be lost?”

The Prophet said, “When the power or authority comes in the hands of unfit persons, then wait for the Hour (Doomsday.)”

Pledge of allegiance to Allah’s Apostle

Narated By Jarir bin Abdullah : I gave the pledge of allegiance to Allah’s Apostle for the following:

1. Offer prayers perfectly.
2. Pay the Zakat. (obligatory charity)
3. And be sincere and true to every Muslim.

Sahih Bukhari Book 02. Belief

Narated By Ziyad bin’Ilaqa : I heard Jarir bin ‘Abdullah (Praising Allah). On the day when Al-Mughira bin Shu’ba died,

he (Jarir) got up (on the pulpit) and thanked and praised Allah and said,

“Be afraid of Allah alone Who has none along with Him to be worshipped.(You should) be calm and quiet till the (new) chief comes to you and he will come to you soon. Ask Allah’s forgiveness for your (late) chief because he himself loved to forgive others.”

Jarir added, “Amma badu (now then), I went to the Prophet and said, ‘I give my pledge of allegiance to you for Islam.”

The Prophet conditioned (my pledge) for me to be sincere and true to every Muslim so I gave my pledge to him for this.

By the Lord of this mosque! I am sincere and true to you (Muslims). Then Jarir asked for Allah’s forgiveness and came down (from the pulpit).

Reward of every deeds

Narated By ‘Umar bin Al-Khattab : Allah’s Apostle said,

The reward of deeds depends upon the intention and every person will get the reward according to what he has intended. So whoever emigrated for Allah and His Apostle, then his emigration was for Allah and His Apostle. And whoever emigrated for worldly benefits or for a woman to marry, his emigration was for what he emigrated for.”

Guard your HEART

Narated By An-Nu’man bin Bashir : I heard Allah’s Apostle saying, ‘Both legal and illegal things are evident but in between them there are doubtful (suspicious) things and most of the people have no knowledge about them. So whoever saves himself from these suspicious things saves his religion and his honor. And whoever indulges in these suspicious things is like a shepherd who grazes (his animals) near the Hima (private pasture) of someone else and at any moment he is liable to get in it. (O people!) Beware! Every king has a Hima and the Hima of Allah on the earth is His illegal (forbidden) things. Beware! There is a piece of flesh in the body if it becomes good (reformed) the whole body becomes good but if it gets spoilt the whole body gets spoilt and that is the heart.
