Hadith 1: Intention (an-Niyyah)
Umar ibn Al-Khattab (may Allah be pleased with him) reported: I heard the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, say:
Sahl bin Sad As-Saidi said: “I was present with the Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) in a gathering where he described Jannah, and at the end of his talk he said, ‘There is in it that which no eye has seen, no ear has heard, nor has it ever crossed the heart of man.’” [Sahih Muslim]
Imagine what a baby can see while inside its mother’s womb. At that point a baby’s world is very limited. If anyone were to try to explain to the baby that it i…s about to enter a world full of colour, of flowers, butterflies, lakes and trees, how well could the baby imagine such things of which it has no experience. If we tried explaining the colours golden and silver or even purple, pink and blue, could we really communicate anything meaningful to the unborn infant? We would be similarly incapable of describing the wonderful smells and sounds that exist on earth.
An unborn child transitions from its extremely confined existence in a womb to a world much larger in size and multifold in experience. Similar is the transition we will make when we enter the next world after the confines of earthly existence. It is as impossible for us to understand the nature and scope of what Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) has kept in store for us in Jannah as it is impossible for an unborn child to know of the sensory pleasures that await it outside the womb.
Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) says in the Quran: “Their sides forsake their beds, to invoke their Lord in fear and hope, and they spend (in Allah’s Cause) out of what We have bestowed on them. No person knows what is kept hidden for them of joy as a reward for what they used to do.” [As-Sajdah: 16-17]
A bedouin asked the Messenger of ALLAH (SâllAllâhu ‘Alâihi Wâsâllâm):
“What will save me from sins?”
The Messenger of ALLAH (SâllAllâhu ‘Alâihi Wâsâllâm) replied:
“Tears, humility and illness.”
[Related by Imam Ahmad Ibn Hanbal]
We hardly find anyone sinning while they’re busy crying (in repentance or otherwise).
Humility keeps one from sinning because most sins are committed out of arrogance. Others’ rights are trampled on because of our over-estimation of
our own worth. And our sins against ALLAH (Subhânâhu Wâ Ta‘âlâ) also
reflect an over-estimation of our intelligence.
We tend to look down upon illness.
We see it as an unnecessary waste of our lives.
But it may well be the blessing of ALLAH (Subhânâhu Wâ Ta‘âlâ).
If it is restraining us from sinning it is a blessing indeed.
O people! Verily your Lord is One and your father (Adam) is one. An Arab is not better than a non-Arab, and a non-Arab is not better than an Arab; a white man is not better than a black man and a black man is not better than a white man – except in piety
(Reported by Imaam Ahmad, 22391; al-Silsilat al-Saheeh, 2700).
Narrated Abu Huraira (may Allah be pleased with him): Allah’s Apostle (peace be upon him) said: “Allah said: ‘If My slaves loves the meeting with Me, I too love the meeting with him; and if he dislikes the meeting with Me, I too dislike the meetin…g with him.’ ”Sahih Al-Bukhari, Book of Tauhid, Hadith: 7504]
عن أبي هريرة أن رسول الله صلی الله عليه وسلم قال قال الله إذا أحب عبدي لقائي أحببت لقائه وإذا کره لقائي کرهت لقائه
Sweetness (delight) of faith
The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “Whoever possesses the following three qualities will have the sweetness (delight) of faith:
1. The one to whom Allah and His Apostle becomes dearer than anything else.
2. Who loves a person and he loves him only for Allah’s sake.
3. Who hates to revert to Atheism (disbelief) as he hates to be thrown into the fire.”
حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ الْمُثَنَّى، قَالَ حَدَّثَنَا عَبْدُ الْوَهَّابِ الثَّقَفِيُّ، قَالَ حَدَّثَنَا أَيُّوبُ، عَنْ أَبِي قِلاَبَةَ، عَنْ أَنَسٍ، عَنِ النَّبِيِّ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَ ” ثَلاَثٌ مَنْ كُنَّ فِيهِ وَجَدَ حَلاَوَةَ الإِيمَانِ أَنْ يَكُونَ اللَّهُ وَرَسُولُهُ أَحَبَّ إِلَيْهِ مِمَّا سِوَاهُمَا، وَأَنْ يُحِبَّ الْمَرْءَ لاَ يُحِبُّهُ إِلاَّ لِلَّهِ، وَأَنْ يَكْرَهَ أَنْ يَعُودَ فِي الْكُفْرِ كَمَا يَكْرَهُ أَنْ يُقْذَفَ فِي النَّارِ “.

حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ بَشَّارٍ، قَالَ حَدَّثَنَا يَحْيَى بْنُ سَعِيدٍ، قَالَ حَدَّثَنَا شُعْبَةُ، قَالَ حَدَّثَنِي أَبُو التَّيَّاحِ، عَنْ أَنَسٍ، عَنِ النَّبِيِّ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَ ” يَسِّرُوا وَلاَ تُعَسِّرُوا، وَبَشِّرُوا وَلاَ تُنَفِّرُوا “.
Anas ibn Malik (may Allah be pleased with him) reported that Alla…h’s Messenger (peace be upon him) said: “A time will come on the people in which the one who is patient upon his religion will be like the one who holds live (burning) coal (in his hand).”

“What is wrong with those people who look towards the sky during the prayer ?” His talk grew stern while delivering this speech and he said, “They should stop (looking towards the sky during the prayer); otherwise their eye-sight would be taken away.”

The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: “God has revealed to me that you must be humble, so that no one oppresses another and boasts over another.” – Sunan of Abu-Dawood, Hadith 2294 Read the rest of this entry
The Prophet (Salallâhu ‘Alaihi Wasallam) said:
“Jibreel came to me, and showed me the gate of Jannah through which my Ummah will enter.” Abu Bakr (Radhi Allâhu ‘Anhu) said:
“O Messenger of Allah, would that I had been with you to see it!”
The Messenger of Allah (Salallâhu ‘Alaihi Wasallam) said:
“But you, O Abu Bakr, will be the first of my Ummah to enter Jannah.” [Bukhari: Kitaab Bada al-Khalq, Baab Ma Jaa fi Sifat al-Jannah;
Abu Bakr (Radhi Allâhu ‘Anhu’s) services in the Path of Allah are more than that of any person other than the Prophet (Salallâhu ‘Alaihi Wasallam). He was next after the Prophet (Salallâhu ‘Alaihi Wasallam)
in the sacrifices he made so that Islam could be established and people could enter Allah’s chosen religion en masse.
He will thus be the first person of the Muslim Ummah to enter Jannah.
His biography is a must read for all aspirants to Jannat.

Please read and share you may never know who will correct their salah because of you…!!
‘Aishah (r.a) says: “I asked the Messenger of Allah (s.a.w.w) about turning in salah and he said: ‘It is the portion that the Satan steals from the slave’s prayer.'” [Ahmad, al-Bukhari, an-Nasa’i, and Abu Dawud] Read the rest of this entry
Narrated Abu Huraira:Allah’s Apostle said, ”Whoever says one hundred times in a day:
“Laa ilaaha illallaah wahdahuu laa shareeka lahu, lahu-l-mulk wa lahu-l-hamd wa huwa ‘alaa kulli shai’in qadeer,”
(“None has the right to be worshipped but Allah, the Alone Who has no partners, to Him belongs Dominion and to Him belong all the Praises, and He has power over all things (i.e. Omnipotent)”,}
he will get the same reward as given for manumitting ten slaves; and one hundred good deeds will be written in his accounts, and one hundred sins will be deducted from his accounts, and it (his saying) will be a shield for him from Satan on that day till night, and nobody will be able to do a better deed except the one who does more than he.” (Bukhari, Book #75, Hadith #412)
Da`eef (Weak). Related by Ibn Maajah (1181, 3866), Ibn Nasr in Qiyaam al-Lail (p. 137), Tabaraani in Al-Mu`jam al-Kabeer (3/98/1) & Haakim (1/536), from Saalih ibn Hassaan from Muhammad ibn Ka`b from Ibn `Abbaas (radi Allaahu `anhu) as marfoo`.
This is a weak sanad due to Ibn Hassaan, who is munkar in Hadeeth, as Bukhaari said; Nasaa’i said, “He is abandoned in Hadeeth”; Ibn Hibbaan said, “He used to have female singers and listen to music, and he used to narrate fabricated reports on the authority of trustworthy narrators”; Ibn Abi Haatim said in Kitaab al-`Ilal (2/351), “I asked my father (i.e. Abu Haatim al-Raazi) about this hadeeth, to which he said: `Munkar’.” Read the rest of this entry
“O you who have believed, let not a people ridicule [another] people; perhaps they may be better than them; nor let women ridicule [other] women; perhaps they may be better than them. And do not insult one another and do not call each other by [offensive] nicknames. Wretched is the name of disobedience after [one’s] faith. And whoever does not repent – then it is those who are the wrongdoers.”
[Qur’an Surah Al-Ĥujurāt (The Rooms)….49:11]
“Do not spent your time finding fault with one another.”

Narrated Abu Said:
The Prophet said, “Do not abuse my companions for if any one of you spent gold equal to Uhud (in Allah’s Cause) it would not be equal to a Mud or even a half Mud spent by one of them.”
– Bukhari volume 5 book 57 hadith 22
The Prophet sallAllaahu ‘alayhi wa salam said:►“There is no calamity that befalls one of the Muslims & he responds ➬ ‘Inna Lillaahi wa inna ilahi raaji’oon, Allahumma ujurni fi museebati w’ukhluf li khayran minha (Truly, to Allah we belong & truly to Him we shall return; O Allah, reward me in this calamity & compensate me with something better than it)’ but Allah will compensate him with something better than it.” [Muslim 918]
(A reminder to myself first and foremost)
Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, said:
If a son of Adam were to own a valley full of gold, he would desire to have two. Nothing can fill his mouth except the earth (of the grave). Allah turns with mercy to him who turns to Him in repentance. [ref: Al-Bukhari and Muslim].
Commentary: This Hadith deals with man’s greed and his lust for material wealth. Only the person who has a perfect Faith can save himself from it.
The Prophet Muhammad (peace_be_upon_him) said: The best fighting (jihad) in the path of Allah is (to speak) a word of justice to an oppressive ruler.
