It was narrated from Anas that : The Prophet [SAW] said: "There are three things, whoever attains them will find therein the sweetness of Islam: When Allah [SWT] and His Messenger [SAW] are dearer to him than all else; when he loves a person and only loves him for the sake of Allah [SWT]; and when he would hate to go back to disbelief as much as he would hate to be thrown into the fire."
This is from the category of Iman/Tawheed. This hadith stood out to me because It talks about wanting to taste the sweetness of Islam. And most of the time, anything that is sweet, we love it. For example brownies are sweet and chocolaty so in this case it has the perfect sweetness that I love. Same case for Islam, if Islam tastes sweet to us then we will love islam which will increase our Taqwa and our love for Allah (swt). This hadith also lists 3 things to do to taste the sweetness of Islam: Loving Allah and His Messenger (saw) more than anything, loves a person for the sake of Allah and hating to go back to disbelief as much as hating to go back to the hell fire. Trying to achieve these things can actually be very easy if you have faith in Allah (SWT) and if you believe in your end goal which is Jannah.
Abu Huraira reported: The Messenger of Allah (S) said: When the Mu'adhdhin calls to prayer, Shatan runs back vehemently.
This is from the category Salah. This Hadith stood out to me because it shows the power of Salah. When we pray, Shaytan runs away in anger because we are obeying Allah (SWT) and worshipping Him and Shaytan DOES NOT like to see us worshipping Allah (SWT). So for that long moment in prayer we are in complete peace because Shaytan is not near us to whisper in our ears or our heart and tell us to do something wrong.
Wow Hanaan!!! Thats a reason that Shaytaan runs away that I never knew about!!! Very interesting ;)
Thank you for posting that Hanaan, I knew that Shaytan hates when we do good deeds, but I did not know he runs away like that. It is good to know that we are free from the whisperings of Shaytan, even for a small moment.
From Sunan Nisai in Book of Tawheed/Iman:It was narrated from Abu Hurairah that:
The Messenger of Allah [SAW] was asked: "Which deed is best?" "He said: Faith in Allah [SWT] and His messenger [SAW]."
حَدَّثَنَا أَبُو عَبْدِ الرَّحْمَنِ، أَحْمَدُ بْنُ شُعَيْبٍ - مِنْ لَفْظِهِ - قَالَ أَنْبَأَنَا عَمْرُو بْنُ عَلِيٍّ، قَالَ حَدَّثَنَا عَبْدُ الرَّحْمَنِ، قَالَ حَدَّثَنَا إِبْرَاهِيمُ بْنُ سَعْدٍ، عَنِ الزُّهْرِيِّ، عَنْ سَعِيدِ بْنِ الْمُسَيَّبِ، عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ، أَنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم سُئِلَ أَىُّ الأَعْمَالِ أَفْضَلُ قَالَ " الإِيمَانُ بِاللَّهِ وَرَسُولِهِ " .
I chose this hadith because this hadith basically tells you the best deed to do. EVER. So I mean it's pretty straight-forward why I chose this hadith. like who would turn away from this hadith?
Thank you Najeeb, Now I know which deed I shouuld do to have the best deed ever!
Prayer said in a congregation is equivalent to twenty-five (prayers) as compared with the prayer said by a single person.
I chose this hadith because it really shows the power of jamah. I mean, honestly, I kind of dreaded going to pray in jamah, since sometimes it takes soooooo long, but you know what, in the end its all worth it for the reward.
The hadith that I chose was :
It was narrated that Abu Hurairah said:
"The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) aid: 'When the Iqamah for prayer is said, there is no prayer except the prescribed prayer." I chose this because I never knew that yo can't make sunnah after the iqamah iscalled, and that you have to pray the fard.(Except ofcourse after the prayer if their is sunnah.)
Thank You Nazeer! You taught me a piece of information that I never knew. You helped me learn. Jazakumullahukhairan
WOW Nazeer thank you. I never knew that the Prophet (saw) said that; so now i know a new fact about salah.
Glad I could help, Najeeb!! (:
Im in 6A.
The Prophet (peace be upon him) said, “He who believes in Allah and the Last Day, let him be kind to his neighbour; and he who believes in Allah and the Last Day, let him show hospitality to his guest; and he who believes in Allah and the Last Day, let him either speak good or remain silent”.
I chose this hadith because now a days people are into gossip and find it fun. it was fun even back in the time of he propet(saw). gossip is bad and can ruin your record of good
deeds by one bad comment of someone else.
I agree with you, about the importance of this hadith because because we have to give a good impression of Islam to our neighbors by actions. Also, gossip can ruin ones reputation badly
Thanks Elmadhoun for this Hadith you taught me a new thing about how to be kind with my neighbor and how the prophet Mohammed ( saw ) put it at the same rank of believing in Allah ( swt ) and the last day.
The Prophet (SAW) was asked: ‘Which deed is the best?' He (SAW) answered: ”Salah in the beginning of its time."
This is from the book of Salah. Even though it is short, this Hadith really stood out to me because I had known before that it is better to pray Salah closer to the time it starts, but when I read this hadith I actually realized how important that action really is-so important that the Messenger of Allah (SAW) called it the best deed. Nowadays, sadly many people cram Salah into their schedule and barely pray it in time, when in fact it should be the opposite. Our schedules should be planned around Salah, and our lives should revolve around worshipping Allah as well, because that is the reason we were created. Reflecting on this, I hope that I can work on always praying Salah at the beginning of its time, because that is the best of deeds.
Really nice comment Imani. It is very important to get Salah in one time. On the Day of Judgement the first thing that will be judged is your Salah. If the Salah os osund the rest of the Judegment will be sound.
Narrated Abu Hurairah: that the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said: "The Muslim is the one from (the harm of) whose tongue and hand (other) Muslims are safe, and the believer is the one with whom the people trust their blood and their wealth."
I learn from Tirmidhi’s Hadith to be Muslim/believer who does not bring any harm onto others, and one who people can put their trust in.
Book of Salah
Narrated by Jabir Ibn Abdullah (RA)
Rasulullah (SAW) used to teach his companions to perform the prayer of Istikhara for each and every matter just as he used to teach them the Surahs from the Quran He used to say, "If anyone of you intends to do something, he should offer a two rakat prayer other than the compulsory prayers, and after finishing it, he should say: O Allah! I consult You, for You have all knowledge, and appeal to You to support me with Your Power and ask for Your Bounty, for You are able to do things while I am not, and You know while I do not; and You are the Knower of the Unseen. O Allah If You know It this matter (name your matter) is good for me both at present and in the future, (or in my religion), in my this life and in the Hereafter, then fulfill it for me and make it easy for me, and then bestow Your Blessings on me in that matter. O Allah! If You know that this matter is not good for me in my religion, in my this life and in my coming Hereafter (or at present or in the future), then divert me from it and choose for me what is good wherever it may be, and make me be pleased with it." -Sahih Bukhari
I chose this hadith because we studied about salatul istikhara in class. This shows the importnace of Salatul-Istikhara
Narrated by Um Kulthum bint Uqba
That she heard Allah's Apostle say," He who makes peace between the people by inventing good information or saying good things, is not a liar." (Muslim)
This stood out to me because we can even LIE just make peace.
Narated By Salman-Al-Farsi : The Prophet (p.b.u.h) said, "Whoever takes a bath on Friday, purifies himself as much as he can, then uses his (hair) oil or perfumes himself with the scent of his house, then proceeds (for the Jumua prayer) and does not separate two persons sitting together (in the mosque), then prays as much as (Allah has) written for him and then remains silent while the Imam is delivering the Khutba, his sins in-between the present and the last Friday would be forgiven."
i chose this hadith because it shows how generous Allah(SWT) is with giving good deeds, doing somthing so simple can get you so many good deeds!
