Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him and his progeny

Prophet Muhammad [sawas] spent his childhood as an orphan. A few months after 'Abd Allah (his father) married Amina peace be upon them, the daughter of Wahb (the chief of the Banu Zuhra family), 'Abd Allah went on a business trip to Damascus, and passed away on his return trip in Yathrib (now Medina). Some historians say that his death was before Muhammad's birth and some have written that he passed away a few months after Prophet Muhammad [sawas] was born.
Prophet Muhammad [sawas] spent his early childhood with a woman from the Banu Sa'd tribe, named Halima, who breastfed him. Prophet Muhammad [sawas] lived his first years with his foster-mother and her husband in the desert.
When Prophet Muhammad [sawas] was 6 years or 4 years old according to some reports, he traveled to Yathrib with his mother, Amina peace be upon her, to see his relatives on the side of 'Abd al-Muttalib's mother. However, on the return journey to Mecca, she passed away in Abwa' and was buried there.
After the loss of his mother, 'Abd al-Muttalib, undertook the guardian of Prophet Muhammad [sawas]. When Prophet Muhammad (s) was eight years old, 'Abd al-Muttalib also passed away. Since then, Prophet Muhammad's (s) uncle, Abu Talib, took care of him.
Although Abu Talib [pbuh]) was not rich, he and his honorable wife Fatimah bint Asad (the mother of Imam Ali [pbuh])), tried their best in looking after Muhammad [s]. His presence in his uncle's house was not ordinary. Signs of his greatness could be seen everywhere. His entrance to their house brought bountiful blessings to the house of Abu Talib [pbuh]). Lady Fatimah the daughter of Asad has said, "From the moment that Prophet Muhammad [pbuhap]entered our home, the tree, which had dried up for years, prospered and offered fruits." Abu Talib narrates that they would hear Prophet Muhammad [pbuhap]praying at nights. Though it was against the custom of Arabs to remember Allah [swt] while eating, the little Muhammad [pbuhap]would not start eating or drinking unless reciting the name of Allah [swt]. He would also end his meal by thanking Allah [swt], the exalted.

Quraish's businessmen used to go to Shaam and Yemen every year. Abu Talib used to go with them from time to time. Prophet Muhammad [pbuhap]attended one of these trips to Shaam with his uncle when he was 12 years old. Abu Talib was the Prophet's [pbuhap] guardian after the demise of Abd al-Muttalib [pbuh]). In the trip, their caravan rested in the city of "Basri". A great Christian monk named Bohayra had been living in Basri for many years. Unlike every year, Bohayra came out of his monastery and invited the passing caravan for a meal. While the others were having their meal, Bohayra seemed to be seeking something. Finally, he found what he was looking for in the young Muhammad [pbuhap]. Bohayra was carefully watching his actions and behaviours. After everyone finished their food, Bohayra came to the Prophet [pbuhap] and asked him couple of questions from his past and other issues. Then he looked upon the Prophet's [pbuhap] shoulder and found a speckle like he had expected (which later became known as the seal of Prophethood). Bohayra told Abu Talib that this young man would become a great person. He also made a suggestion to Abu Talib [pbuh] to return Prophet Muhammad [pbuhap] back to his hometown in order to be safe from the Jews.

Another important aspect of Prophet Muhammad's [pbuhap] life before his appointment to prophecy was his enrollment in "the youth agreement". All tribes in Mecca were related to each other, thus they created treaties between each other to insure the security from attacks. However, for a stranger this was not the case. There was no one to protect a stranger if he had been oppressed.A man came to Mecca from another town to do some business. Aas Ibn Wa'el, a citizen of Mecca, purchased the man's materials and didn't pay anything in return. The man went to the tribe of Quraish and asked for help, but no one helped him. As a result of this event a group of youth from Quraish gathered and agreed to stop any oppression on strangers. They named the agreement as "Helf al-Fodul". Being one of the main members of establishing this agreement, Prophet Muhammad (PBUH&HP) joined the agreement. Later on he regarded it as an excellent event.

The Marriage of Prophet Muhammad [pbuhap] and Holy Lady Khadijah [pbuh]
Before discussing Prophet Muhammad [pbuhap] marriage with Lady Khadijah [pbuh], let us briefly discuss her character. She is the first woman who accepted the invitation of Prophet Muhammad [pbuhap] and converted to Islam. Her father was Khuwaylid Ibn Asad and her mother was Fatimah bint Za'idah. Lady Khadijah [pbuh] was known as a clever person and she had great morality. Moreover, at that time, it was common amongst Arabs to disrespect women and kill their daughters. In such a period however, Lady Khadijah [pbuh] was famous for titles such as "the pious" or "the Lady of the women of Quraish". She was one of the richest merchants of Quraish. She used to lend some goods to other merchants who went to other cities such as Yemen and on their return they would share the profit of that business. Although most great merchants of Quraish were willing to marry Lady Khadijah [pbuh] she chose to marry Prophet Muhammad [pbuhap] who was financially in a lower class. After marriage, she devoted all her wealth in spreading Islam. Prophet Muhammad [pbuhap] said: "Khadijah's wealth was the most useful wealth I ever had." In the 6th year after Prophet's appointment, when Muslims were surrounded in an area called "She'eb Abu Talib", Lady Khadijah [pbuhap] used her wealth and power among Quraish to help surrounded Muslims. She spent all of her wealth for Muslims to the extent that before her demise, she had nothing left.
It has been narrated several times that, Gabriel, the angle of revelation, inspired to the Prophet [pbuhap] and brought Allah's (SWT) salute for Prophet Muhammad [pbuhap] and Lady Khadijah [pbuh].
Gabriel said: "O Muhammad! Salute to Khadijah from Allah". Prophet told Khadijah (PBUH): "This is Gabriel who has brought Allah's salute and peace for you. Khadijah(PBUH) replied: "Allah is all peace; peace is from Allah and my salute to Gabriel."
Lady Khadijah [pbuhap] had a great value in the eyes of the Prophet Muhammad [pbuhap] to the extent that he did not marry a second woman while she was alive. The year that she passed away, was coincident with the demise of Prophet's uncle Abu Talib (PBUH). As a result, that year was called "the year of sadness." After her demise, the Prophet (PBUH&HP) regarded her many times as a great woman. Considering her high position, she gained the glory of being the Prophet's wife and the honour of being mother of Fatimah al-Zahra (PBUH), the Lady of all women of the worlds.

As mentioned in the previous part, Lady Khadijah [pbuh] was one of the wealthiest merchants of Quraish. She dispatched some men to different cities to trade; afterwards, she would get her share from the profit of their business. When Lady Khadijah [pbuh] was informed of Prophet Muhammad [pbuhap] truthfulness, moral virtues, and his trustworthiness as he was well-known for, she offered him to go to Syria for trade. She also gave him a larger share than the rest men.
Prophet Muhammad (PBUH&HP) accepted this offer and left for Syria; he was being accompanied with Meysara, Lady Khadijah's (PBUH) special servant. When they arrived in Syria, Prophet Muhammad (PBUH&HP) came down in the shadow of a tree near a monastery. A monk asked Meysara: "Who is the man under that tree?" Meysara replied:" He is of Quraish tribe and from Mecca." The monk said: "I swear to Allah that he is no one except a Prophet." Prophet Muhammad (PBUH&HP) sold what he had brought; he bought some other material and then returned to Mecca. In this journey, all businessmen made profit, especially Prophet Muhammad (PBUH&HP) who made more than others. Once they returned, Lady Khadijah (PBUH) asked Meysara about Prophet Muhammad (PBUH&HP); he said that whatever he did was orderly, logical and wise. He also narrated the happenings throughout the journey and said: "When one of the traders asked him to swear to Laat and Ozza, the two famous idols in Mecca, he refused to do that and said: 'To me, nothing is inferior to Lat and Ozza.'" Once Lady Khadijah (PBUH) became aware of these incidents, she sent a messenger to Prophet Muhammad (PBUH&HP) to express her proposal for marriage. She wanted to marry him because of his dignity amongst family, truthfulness, moral virtues, and trustworthiness. Once Prophet Muhammad (PBUH&HP) was informed of this issue, he sent his uncles to house of Lady Khadijah (PBUH) to propose for her hand in marriage. In the proposal session, Abu Talib, the Prophet's uncle, praised Allah (SWT) and then spoke of the virtues of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH&HP). He proposed marriage on behalf of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH&HP) to Lady Khadijah (PBUH). Lady Khadijah (PBUH) accepted the proposal and got married to Prophet Muhammad (PBUH&HP). At that time, Prophet Muhammad (PBUH&HP) was twenty-five years old.

A Great Event
Another important event that occurred before the Prophet's mission was the replacement of Hajar al-Aswad in its place. It has been recorded in history that even before Prophet Muhammad's (PBUH&HP) appointment the house of Allah (SWT) (Kaaba) was greatly revered by the Arabs. The Prophet (PBUH&HP) and some of his ancestors used to do rituals around the Kaaba. One year, there was a flood in Mecca which destroyed the walls of Kaaba. Quraish, who took the control over this house, decided to repair it. Once they built the walls, a serious dispute raised amongst them, which was going to cause a war. Each tribe wanted the honour of putting the sacred stone of Hajar al-Aswad in its place. Finally, an old man who was highly respected by the Quraish tribe suggested that the first man, who entered the mosque area, should become the judge between them. Everyone accepted this suggestion. Meanwhile, Prophet Muhammad (PBUH&HP) entered the mosque and the great men of Quraish accepted that he should be the judge. The Prophet (PBUH&HP) commanded them to widen a piece of cloth on the ground. Then he put Hajar al-Aswad on it and called the head of every tribe to take one corner of the cloth. When they picked up the cloth by the wall, the Prophet (PBUH&HP) took the stone and put it in its place. With this wise judgment he put an end to their dispute. This event shows us that the Prophet (PBUH&HP) was greatly honoured by the Quraish and they all agreed on the honesty and trustworthiness of him.
Morals and Manners of Prophet Muhammad [pbuhap]
Abu Darda says: I asked Ayesha about the morals and manners of the Holy Prophet (S). She said: The morals of the Prophet were based on Quran. He was pleased with whatever Almighty Allah was pleased with and was angry at whatever Almighty Allah was angry with. Al-Bidaya wan Nihaya, Vol. 6, Pg. 37.

Amirul Momineen (a.s.) in the description of the Holy Prophet (S) says:
In generosity, he was ahead of all the people. He was the bravest of all. He was most truthful, loyal and had a kind disposition. He was the most social person. Whoever encountered him initially was influenced by his awe and after meeting him and being in his company used become fond of him. I have neither seen anyone like His Eminence before or after that. Biharul Anwar, Vol. 16, Pg. 263.

Anas ibn Malik has said with regard to His Eminence: He had the most excellent manners, was most forbearing and generous of the people. It never happened that they asked something from him and he refused. Uyunul Athar, Vol. 2, Pg. 329.

Husain ibn Ali (a.s.) has narrated from his father that he said:
The Holy Prophet (S) was always cheerful, good natured and soft spoken; he was never nasty, bad natured and fault-picker and he ignored that which he did not like. He never disappointed anyone. He had purified his self from three things: Argumentation, extravagance and vain acts. In three things he had nothing to do with anyone: He was never harsh and a fault finder; he was never inclined to expose the secrets and hidden deficiencies of others; he never spoke, except when it entailed gaining heavenly rewards. Makarimul Akhlaq, Vol. 1, Pg. 13.
Anas says: The Messenger of Allah (S) passed by some children and greeted them.
He also says: When the Holy Prophet (S) did not see one of the companions for three days, he inquired about his well-being. If he were on a journey, he used to pray for him and if he was in town he used to go and meet him; if he was sick he paid a visit to him. Makarimul Akhlaq, Vol. 1, Pg. 19.


The Simple life of Prophet Muhammad [pbuhap]
The life of His Eminence was extremely simple and without any frills. His house was small and made up of clay. The floor was covered with a piece of mat and his food mostly consisted of barley bread and dates. Many times it so happened that he did not even have food and went hungry for a day or more. His clothes were simple and he mended his own shoes. But his simplicity was not due to poverty or deprivation, because he also possessed the strength to work and also had a share in war booty and public treasury.
His simplicity was because he wanted to be at the same level as that of the people of the early period of Islam who were mostly poor. The Holy Prophet (S) was the leader of Islamic community; therefore, he refrained from luxuries so that it would be easy for others to bear difficulties. He distributed equitably the funds from public treasury. His and his relatives’ share was never more than the share of others. On the contrary, sometimes he even gave his own share to the needy.
Ibn Abbas narrates:
One day Umar came to the Holy Prophet (S) to find that the mat on which he was sitting had left an imprint on his side. He said: O Messenger of Allah (S), if you had only procured a nice carpet for yourself. The Holy Prophet (S) replied: What do I have to do with the material world? My simile in the world is like the simile of a rider traveling on a hot day and who sits under a shade for an hour; then moves on. Makarimul Akhlaq, Vol. 1, Pg. 25.
Ibn Abbas says: Sometimes many day and nights passed on the Prophet and his family when they did not have any food and they went to sleep hungry. Uyunul Athar, Vol. 2, Pg. 335.


The Worship of Prophet Muhammad [pbuhap]
The Messenger of Allah (S) was the most devoted person to worship and he accorded great importance to the worship of Allah. He was very fond of ritual prayer and he remarked: The light of my eyes is in ritual prayer. Jamiul Ahadith Shia, Vol. 20, Pg. 25.

Mughira ibn Shoba says with regard to the worship of the Prophet: He stood in ritual prayer at such length that his legs were swollen and he was told: Has God not forgiven your past and future sins? He replied: Should I not be a thankful servant of Allah? Al-Bidaya wan Nihaya, Vol. 6, Pg. 60.

Imam Ja’far Sadiq (a.s.) says:
The Messenger of Allah (S) was in the chamber of Ummu Salma one night. Ummu Salma awoke and could not find the Holy Prophet (S) in bed. She became suspicious and arose and searched for him around the house. She found him in a corner; he was standing with his hands raised to the heavens; he was weeping and saying: O Allah, never take away from me the good sense of doing good. Biharul Anwar, Vol. 6, Pg. 217.


The Behavior of Prophet Muhammad [pbuhap] towards others
Imam Hasan (a.s.) said: Then I asked my father about the behavior of the Prophet in gatherings. He replied: He never sat down or stood up except with the mention of God. He never reserved a special place for himself in a gathering and he prohibited such a thing. When he entered an assembly, he took any place that was vacant and advised the same to his companions. He paid equal attention to all those who were present there, so that no one should think that others are being preferred. He used to wait patiently for the other person to conclude his statement before he would speak up. Anyone who asked him for something either had his need fulfilled or he pleased him through his words. People used to be satisfied with his manners and he was like a father to them. All were in fact equal in his view. His gathering was full of forbearance, modesty, patience and trust. In his gathering, voices were not raised. The down-trodden people were not humiliated and their mistakes were overlooked. The people of the gathering were equal and as brothers and in observance of piety, they competed with each other. They observed absolute humility. They accorded respect to the elderly and were kind to youngsters. They preferred the needy over their own selves. They looked after outsiders who visited their town. Makarimul Akhlaq, Vol. 1, Pg. 12.

Now Imam Hasan (a.s.) asked about the behavior of the Prophet with his neighbors. Imam Ali (a.s.) said: He was always jolly in nature, cheerful and soft-natured. He was never harsh and cruel. He never shouted or spoke ill of anyone. He did not pick faults and was also not a flatterer. He used to ignore what he disliked. He did not disappoint others and did not kill the hopes of the hopeful. He refrained from three things: Arguments, speaking too much and talking of useless things. In three things, he had nothing to do with anyone: He never condemned or scolded anyone nor picked fault in anyone. He never spoke except when it carried divine rewards. When he spoke, the people of the gathering used to become absolutely quiet as if a bird was sitting on their heads. When he became quiet people spoke up, but did not object or argue with him. When his lips moved, all fell silent so that he may conclude his statement. When the people laughed, the Messenger of Allah (S) also laughed and if they expressed astonishment he also expressed amazement. He tolerated the harsh words of some people and demands of strangers. Companions also, for the sake of Prophet and to attract his attention helped strangers and needy persons. The Messenger of Allah (S) used to advise the companions that they should do their best to fulfill the needs of the needy. He did not accept the adoration of anyone, except that it should be for a favour. He never interrupted anyone before he could conclude what he was saying. Makarimul Akhlaq, Vol. 1, Pg. 13.

The Holy Prophet of Islam (S) valued the young people and the power of youth and he time and again advised his companions to know the value of youth. That they should accord respect to their personalities and pay special attention to their upbringing, give them responsibilities and protect them. The Prophet also did the same, so that others would follow his example. We present some examples of this as follows: In the early period of Islam, Asad ibn Zurarah and Zakwan came from Medina to Mecca. They met the Holy Prophet (S) during one of the rituals and accepted Islam through his propagation and recited the formula of faith. When they decided to return to Medina, they requested the Holy Prophet (S) to send someone with them to teach the people Quran and invite them to Islam.The Messenger of Allah (S) appointed Musab ibn Umair, who although a youth was well versed with the Holy Quran, to accompany Asad and Zakwan to Medina and to propagate Islam. Also that he should lead the prayers and recite the Quran and sermons to them. Musab came to Medina and initiated his propagation. Since he was a worthy youth, energetic, accomplished and determined, people, especially the youth accepted his call and Islam became popular in Medina. After some days, Musab wrote to the Messenger of Allah (S) about the conversion of the people of Medina to Islam. Biharul Anwar, Vol. 19, Pg. 10-11.

Beautiful sayings of Prophet Muhammad [pbuhap]
The following are collection of sayings from Prophet Muhammad [pbuhap] taken from the book 'A Bundle of Flowers' the book is attached at the end.

The Holy Prophet [s] said: “O’ people! Verily, there is no prophet after me, nor any Ummah after you (Muslims). So, take care to worship your Lord, perform your five ritual prayers, fast in the appointed month (Ramadan), make pilgrimage to the House of your Lord (Mecca), give the alms of your wealth in order to purify your souls thereby.’’
_
The Holy Prophet [s] said: “The one who takes prayer light is not of me. No, by Allah such a person will not reach the Haud, Pond of abundant.”
_
The Holy Prophet [s] said: “Say each of your prayer as if it were your last prayer.”
_
The Holy Prophet [s] said: “The worship done by the one who earns his living on unlawful money is similar to a building constructed upon sand.”

_
The Holy Prophet [s] said: “At the (appointed) time of every prayer (salat), I hear a caller who calls and says: “O children of Adam! Keep up prayers in order to extinguish the fire you have lit against yourselves (by committing sins).”
_
The Holy Prophet [s] said: “The most (important) things that cause people to reach Heaven are divine piety and a good temper.”
_
The Holy Prophet [s] advised: “When making a decision to do something, think about its outcome. If it is good for your advancement and development, follow it, but if it is misleading, leave it out.”
_
The Holy Prophet [s] said: “Show veneration for Allah similar to the way that you would mind your manners in front of a righteous person among your kinsmen.”
_
The Holy Prophet [s] said: “Surely, human beings from the time of Adam up to now are the same as the teeth of a comb are, and there is no superiority for the Arab over non-Arab or for the red race over the black race except for piety.”
_
The Holy Prophet [s] said: “The likeness of my Ahlul-Bayt (progeny) amongst my Ummah (followers) is similar to Noah’s Ark. Those who embarked on it were rescued and those who rejected it perished.”
_
The Holy Prophet [s] said: “Make your gatherings lively with the remembrance of Ali-ibn-Abi-Talib.” (Talk about the Excellencies of Ali [a]).
_
The Holy Prophet [s] said: “Shall I introduce ‘a believer’ to you? A believer is the one whom other believers trust with their souls and wealth. Shall I introduce ‘a Muslim’ to you? A Muslim is the one from whose hand and tongue other Muslims are safe. It is unlawful (Haram) for a believer to do wrong against another believer, or leave him/her in a lurch, or backbite against him/her, or suddenly reject him/her.”
_
The Holy Prophet [s] said: “Do not look at the minuteness of the sin, but see Whom you have sinned against.”
_
The Holy Prophet [s] said: “He who propagates religious affairs without having required competency does a disservice to the religion rather than serving it.”
_
The Holy Prophet [s] said: “Knowledge is Allah’s deposit on the earth and scholars are His trustees of it. Therefore, he who acts according to his knowledge has really delivered His deposit.”
_
The Holy Prophet [s] said: “The good of this world and the world to come is with knowledge.”
_
The Holy Prophet [s] said: “He who searches for knowledge is similar to a person who fasts during the day and keeps vigil at night and is busy worshipping. If a person acquires a branch of knowledge, it is better for him than possessing as much gold as the height of Abu Qubais Mount which he would distribute in the way of Allah.”
_
The Holy Prophet [s] said: “Someone who possesses knowledge on a subject but conceals it when he is asked will be bridled with reins of fire.” (Therefore, if a person possesses information that would help a bewildered person and improve his situation but he remains silent, he has surely committed a great sin.)
_
The Holy Prophet [s] said: “The Quran is Allah’s university; so, learn as much as you can in this university.”
_
The Holy Prophet [s] said: “Verily, what will continue to reach a believer, after his death, from amongst his actions and good deeds are: the knowledge which he taught and spread, the righteous child whom he left behind, and the Holy script which he delivered as heritage (transcribed, and made available).”
_

The Holy Prophet [s] said: “There are two groups of my Ummah that when they are pious, my Ummah will be upright and when they are immoral my Ummah will be corrupt.”
The Messenger of Allah [s] was asked who they were, and he answered: “The religious scholars and rulers.”
_
The Holy Prophet [s] said: “O’ Ali! Gabriel wished to become a human being for seven reasons, which are:
1. Congregational prayer.
2. Companionship with scholars.
3. Establishing peace between two persons.
4. Honouring the orphans.
5. Visiting the sick.
6. Attending a funeral procession.
7. Giving of water to Pilgrims.
Then, be desirous of these things.”
_
The Holy Prophet [s] said that the disciples of Jesus [a] asked him with whom they should make friends, and he [a] replied: “With one whose presence reminds you of God, his speech increases your knowledge and his deed inspires you (to work righteously for) the next world.”
_
The Holy Prophet [s] said: “The sigh of the people of Hell is mostly because of the postponement of repenting.”
_
The Holy Prophet [s] told Ali-ibn-Abi-Talib [a]: “O’ Ali! Blessed is he who Allah looks upon while he is weeping for the sin that none is aware of except Allah.
(Various traditions emphasize that one must not let others know of his sins. One must make confessions about his sins only to Allah and, then, repent.)
_
The Holy Prophet [s] said: “During the third part of every night and on the night before Friday from the beginning (until the break of dawn) Allah sends an angel unto the sky of the earth in order to call: ‘Is there any needy who asks that I may bestow upon him his need? Is there any repentant one that I may return to him? Is there any seeker of forgiveness that I may forgive him?'”
Note:
Islamic traditions teach that sleeping on the night before Friday is called ‘the regret sleep’; for, on the Reckoning Day, people will regret very much that they had been asleep on the nights before Fridays.
_
The Holy Prophet [s] said: “He who leads (others) to piety (will be rewarded) the same as the doer of that good action.”
_
The Holy Prophet [s] said: “If it were not hard upon my Ummah, I would enjoin them to brush (their teeth) with every prayer.”
_
The Holy Prophet [s] said: “On the Day of the Resurrection a caller will announce: “Where are the oppressors and their assistants and those who prepared an inkwell for them or fastened a bag for them or supplied the ink of a pen (for them)? Then, gather these (people) with them!'”
_
The Holy Prophet [s] said: “He who hurts a Muslim believer, surely he has hurt me.”
_
The Holy Prophet [s] said: “He who unlawfully and usurpingly deprives a believer of wealth, Allah will continue to be displeased with him and does not accept his good actions that he fulfills; and none of them will be recorded among his good deeds until he repents and returns the wealth which he had taken to its owner.”
_
The Holy Prophet [s] said: “When you meet each other then initiate greeting (salam) and embrace; and when you separate from each other, then depart with seeking forgiveness.”
_
The Holy Prophet [s] said: “The time when my Ummah (Muslim followers) merely count on others to enjoin right and forbid wrong, in fact, they have declared a fight against Allah, the Exalted.”
_
The Holy Prophet [s] said: “To prevent a Muslim from doing an unlawful action is equivalent with Allah to the performance of seventy accepted Hajj.”
_
The Holy Prophet [s] said: “The one who sees a wrong action done should prohibit it by his deed, if he is capable, of course; and if he cannot do that, he should prohibit it by his tongue, but if he is not able to do even that, he may forbid it by his heart.”
_
The Holy Prophet [s] said: “He who enjoins right and prohibits wrong is the vicegerent of both Allah and His Messenger on the earth.”
_
The Holy Prophet [s] said: ” Whensoever my Ummah undertake to enjoin right and prohibit evil and associate in establishing benevolence, they live happily and prosperously; but when they stop doing so, the blessings will be taken off from them.”
_
The Holy Prophet [s] said: “Affliction caused by the tongue is worse than (that caused by) the strike of the blade of a sword.”
_
The Holy Prophet [s] said: “Among all things, the tongue deserves to be prisoned longer than anything else.” (Because most of our sins are committed by it, such as backbiting, telling lies, defaming, mocking, insulting, etc.)
_
The Holy Prophet [s] said: “The destruction of man lies in three (things): his stomach, his lusts, and his tongue.”
_
The Holy Prophet [s] said: “Slander acts quicker against the faith of a Muslim believer than leprosy does against his body.”
_
The Holy Prophet [s] said: “The abandoning of backbiting is more valuable to Allah, Almighty and Glorious, than the performance of ten thousand rak’at of recommended prayers.”
_
The Holy Prophet [s] said: “Man is influenced by the faith of his friends. Therefore, be careful of whom you associate with.”
_
The Holy Prophet [s] said: “He who decreases a grief out of the grievers of this world for his Muslim brother, Allah will decrease for him a grief out of the grieves of the Hereafter.”
_
The Holy Prophet [s] said: “People are the dependents of Allah for sustenance, so the most beloved one of people with Him is the one who is helpful to the dependents Allah and makes the family members of a house happy.”
_
The Holy Prophet [s] said: “He who helps a Muslim believer (in his troubles), Allah, Almighty and Glorious, will remove from him seventy-three agonies, one of which is in this world and seventy-two other agonies at the time of Great Agony, when people are busy with themselves (in Hereafter).”
_
The Holy Prophet [s] said: “Ask (questions from) the learned, speak with the wise, and associate with the poor.”
_
The Holy Prophet [s] said: “When charity (alms) is delivered out of the hand of its owner, it (the thing being given) says five things: ‘At first I was perishing and you gave me life; I was insignificant and you made me great; I was an enemy and you turned me into a friend; you used to protect me then but now I will protect you up to the Day of Resurrection’.”
_
The Holy Prophet [s] said: “My community will continue to live fairly while they are faithful (to each other), return the deposits (to their owners), and give alms (of their property); but, if they do not fulfil these duties, they will encounter famine and scarcity.”
_
The Holy Prophet [s] said: “Give alms and cure your sick persons by it, because alms can surely remove your bad fortunes and ailments; and it causes prolongation of your lifetimes and increases your rewards.”
_
It is narrated from the Holy Prophet [s] who said:
“When I ascended to the sky, I saw three lines written on the door of Heaven:
The first line: In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful; I am Allah and there is no god save Me that My Grace preceeds My wrath.
The second line: In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent the Merciful; charity is repaid ten times and loan eighteen times, and regard for kinship thirty times.
The third line: He who understands My Rank and My Lordship should never accuse Me regarding sustenance.”
_
The Holy Prophet [s] said: “He who wishes that his sustenance be increased for him and his death day be delayed, then he should pay attention to his kinsfolk.”
_
The Holy Prophet [s] said: “The pleasure of Allah lies in the pleasure of one’s parents (in the case that it is right), and His wrath lies in their wrath.”
_
The Holy Prophet [s] told Amir-ul-Mu’mineen Ali [a]: “O’ Ali! Allah has cursed the parents who would cause their child to be disobedient of them by cursing them.”
_
The Holy Prophet [s] said: Honour your children and train them well, you will be forgiven by Him.”
_
The Holy Prophet [s] said: “Yes, the reward of a woman during her pregnancy until childbirth, and unto when she weans the child, is like that of a stationed (soldier guarding the Muslims’ borders against the attack of pagan enemies) for the sake of Allah. So, if she dies during that, she will have the rank of a martyr.”
_
_
The Holy Prophet [s] said: “When a woman conceives with child she will be as a warrior who fasts during the day and keeps vigil at nights praying, and strives with his soul and wealth on the way of Allah. Then, when she delivers, there will be for her such a great reward with Allah that she does not know how magnificent it is. Thereafter, when she suckles (the child), she will have as much reward as freeing a child from Ismail’s descendants for every suck. And, when she brings suckling the child to an end, an angel beside her tells her to begin the action again for she has surely been forgiven.”
_
The Holy Prophet [s] said: “There is no milk for a baby better than the milk of its mother.”
_
The Holy Prophet [s] said: “A two rak’at prayer that a married person establishes is worthier than when a bachelor keeps up prayers at nights and fasts during the days.
_
The Holy Prophet [s] said: “The person who marries gains half of his Faith, then he must fear of Allah for the next remaining half.”
_

_
The Holy Prophet [s] said: “Get married and give your daughters in marriage, because it is from the good fortune of any Muslim man that he gives his (matured) daughter (or sister) in marriage.”
_
The Holy Prophet [s] said: “There is nothing to Allah, Almighty and Glorious, more beloved than the house which is developed in Islam by marriage; and there is nothing to Allah, Almighty and Glorious, more abhorent than the house which is ruined in Islam by separation, viz, divorce.”
_
The Holy Prophet [s] said: “Any young man who marries at the beginning of his youth, his devil moans and intensively regrets that he has protected two-third of his Faith from Satan.”
_
The Holy Prophet [s] said: “O’ young people! If one of you is capable of marrying, then do it, because it is good for your eyes (not to stare at women) and protects your privy part (to remain more pious).
_
The Holy Prophet [s] said: “He who struggles to join two Muslim believers in lawful marriage that they marry under the divine law, Allah will give him in marriage from the black-eyed houri (damsels in Heaven), and there will be for him the reward of one year of worshipping for every step he takes or word he speaks.”
_
The Holy Prophet [s] said: “The bad omen of a woman is her expensive dower and her ill temper.”
_
The Holy Prophet [s] said: “He who marries a woman only for her beauty (regardless of her Faith), he will not see (gain) what he likes; and he who marries a woman only for her wealth, Allah will leave him with that wealth only. Therefore, it is to you that you look for a religious wife.”
_
The Holy Prophet [s] said: He who marries a woman for her wealth, Allah will leave him only with that; and he who marries a woman (only) for her beauty, he will see in her what he does not like; but he who marries a woman for her religion, Allah will gather those merits for him.”
_
The Holy Prophet [s] said: “He who is regardless of those whom he must feed, is cursed and again very much cursed.”
_
When the Holy Prophet [s] received some information from ‘Umm Salamah about ‘Uthman ibn Maz’un, he set out towards his followers and, (addressing some of them), said: “Do you keep away from (your) wives? Surely, I go to my women, I eat food during the day, and I sleep at night. So, he who turns away from my way of life is not of me.”
_
The Holy Prophet [s] said: “Marry and do not divorce because the Throne of heaven quakes from divorce.”
_
The Holy Prophet [s] said: “Certainly, Allah, Almighty and Glorious, dislikes or curses any man or woman whose intention of divorce or marriage is merely tasting the pleasure of it.”
The Holy Prophet [s] repeated this statement three times to emphasize that any man who divorces his wife for a new marriage and tasting the pleasure of the new wed, as well as if any woman who demands her divorce for the same purpose and marries another man, is involved in the curse of Allah.
_
The Holy Prophet [s] said: “There are three traits which Allah loves (in people): briefness in speech, short (length) of sleep, and small (portion) of food; while there are three traits which He dislikes (in them): loquaciousness, oversleeping, and overeating.”
_
The Holy Prophet [s] said: “Try to be clean as much as you are able to. Verily, Allah has based the foundation of Islam on cleanliness; hence, never can a person enter Paradise but the clean ones.”
_
The Holy Prophet [s] said: “He who sleeps bearing deceit against his Muslim brother in his heart, has slept in the wrath of Allah and remains in that case until he repents.”
_
The Holy Prophet [s] said: “And he who deceives his Muslim brother, Allah takes away the abundancy of his sustenance and spoils his livelihood and leaves him to his ownself.”
_
The Holy Prophet [s] said: “After myself, I fear of three things for my Ummah: misguidance after knowledge, misleading temptations, and the lust of the stomach and the privy parts.”
_
The Holy Prophet [s] said: “The person for whom lust and vice is readily available but he avoids them for the fear of Allah, Almighty and Glorious, He will bar the Fire for him and ensure him against the Great Fear.”
_
The Holy Prophet [s] said: “He who is guarded against the vices of his stomach, tongue, and privy parts, is surely safeguarded from all sins.”
_
The Holy Prophet [s] said: “He whose two days (of life) are the same (making no spiritual progress) is at loss.”
_
The Holy Prophet [s] said: “At the moment when the coffin of a person is being lifted and carried, the concerning soul follows its corpse and regretfully calls: ‘O you my children and my relatives! Beware that the world does not cheat you as it did me. I gathered wealth regardless of it being lawful or unlawful and left all of it for others. Now I am left with its burden upon me while they enjoy the fruit of it; therefore, avoid that which is similar to what happened to me’.”
_
The Holy Prophet [s] said: “None passes a graveyard except that the dead call out to him: ‘O you neglectful person! Were you aware of what we have been made aware of, it would make your blood run cold’.”
_
The Holy Prophet [s] said: “No believer will become wretched by consultation, and none will gain merit through stubbornness.”
_
The Holy Prophet [s] said: “There is a goodness above any goodness until when a believing person, (fighting against the enemies of Islam who slaughter Muslims), is killed in the way of Allah, Almighty and Glorious, then there is no goodness above it.”
_
The Holy Prophet [s] said: “By the One in Whose hand is my soul, if all the members in the skies and on the earth gather to kill a (sinless) believer or be persuaded to it, Allah will surely put them all in the Fire.”

_
The Holy Prophet [s] said: “No drop is more beloved with Allah, Almighty and Glorious, than the drop of blood which is poured in the way of Allah.
_
The Holy Prophet [s] said: “Happiness is for the one who will attend the Qaim of my Ahlul Bayt and will follow him before his rise. This person will love his (Qaim’s) lovers and hate his enemies, and will accept the leadership of the Imams from before his advent. These ones are my friends, and are the most sincere members of my Ummah whom I honour very much.”
_

The Holy Prophet [s] said: “There will come a time for people that: they will not respect their scholars except for their good clothing; they will not hearken to the Qur’an except for the pleasant voice; and they will not worship Allah except for during the fasting month; there will be no shyness in their women, no patience in their poor ones; and no prosperity for their rich ones, they will not be contented with a small (portion), and they will not be satiated with abundance. They will strive (only) for their stomach; their religion is their money (wealth); their women are their Qiblah (direction of worship); and their homes are their mosques; they run away from their scholars just as lambs run away from wolves.
Then, when they become like that, the Lord will afflict them with three conditions. At first, He takes the prosperity from their properties. The second is that a cruel ruler will dominate them. The third is that they will pass away from this world without having (true) Faith.”
_
The Holy Prophet [s] said: “There will come a time for my Ummah when they will love five things while neglecting five others:
They will love this world and neglect the next world.
They will love wealth and forget (the Day of) Reckoning.
They (their men) will love (corruptive) women and forget the houries.
They will love buildings and forget the graves.
And, they will love (their) selves and forget the Lord. Those (such people) dislike me and I, too, dislike them.”
_

The Holy Prophet [s] told Abu Dharr: “Take advantage of five opportunities before five other things:

Your youth before your senescence, your health before your illness, your wealth before your poverty, your leisure before your haste, and your life before your death.”
_
The Holy Prophet [s] said: “Fie upon that Muslim who does not allocate (at least) one day a week to the study of the details of his religion and to explore (the affairs) of his religion.”
_
The Holy Prophet [s] said: “He who studies the religion of Allah, He is sufficient to remove his grief and provides him with sustenance from whence he could never imagine.”
_
The Holy Prophet [s] said: “The one amongst my Ummah who memorizes forty traditions from among those which people need for their religious life (to propagate and instruct), Allah will raise him from the dead as a jurist on the Day of Resurrection.”
_
The Holy Prophet [s] said: “Verily, a servant can gain the rank of he who both fasts during the day and keeps vigil at night, keeping up prayers, through his good disposition.”
_
The Holy Prophet [s] said: “The things by which my Ummah can enjoy Heaven most of all are godliness, and a good temper.”
_
The Holy Prophet [s] said: “Anger spoils Faith as much as vinegar spoils honey.”
_
The Holy Prophet [s] said: “Do not get angry; do not ask people for things; wish for people whatever you wish for yourself.”
_
The Holy Prophet [s] said: “One prayer of a man in congregation is worthier than his forty years of prayers at home (alone).”
_
The Holy Prophet [s] said: “The rows of my followers in the congregational prayer on the earth are like the rows of angels in the sky; and a rak’at of prayer in congregation is equivalent with twenty-four rak’ats, and every rak’at with Allah, Almighty and Glorious, is more beloved than forty years of worship. Therefore, on the Day of Justice, when Allah gathers all human beings from the beginning to the end for Reckoning, there will be no believer who has attended the congregational prayer but for whom Allah will decrease the grievousness of the Day of Reckoning and after that the one will be told to enter Heaven.
