“Verily Al**h has forbidden to you disobedience to mothers, burying daughters alive, denying what you owe and demanding what you have no right to, and has disliked for you idle talk and gossip, excessive questioning, and squandering wealth” “Mothers” are mentioned for emphasis because mothers are normally weaker of the two parents (and more prone to emotion). “Has dislike for you idle talk and gossip” because it leads to greater sins such as backbiting. “Excessive questioning” is disliked when a person questions a person to test their knowledge or when a person asks questions about issues that does not concern a person. Hadeeth 102
“The most beloved practice in the sight of Al**h is love for the sake of Al**h and hatred for the sake of Al**h” Love and hatred for the sake of Al**h can only be completed after a person fulfils his religious obligations. These two acts cannot gain greater reward than the fardh acts such as prayer and zakat nor can priority be given to them. Hadeeth 103
“Verily the world is accursed and accursed is what it contains, except the remembrance of Al**h, that which Al**h loves, and someone with sacred knowledge or someone learning it” Ibn Abbas (RA) said “Al**h has divided the world into three portions: one for the believer, one for the hypocrite and one for the unbeliever. A believer makes provisions (for the hereafter), a hypocrite adorns (himself) and an unbeliever enjoys (himself).” “Someone with sacred knowledge” or “someone learning it” is mentioned to emphasize the importance of the student and teacher of sacred knowledge. Hadeeth 104
“Among those actions and good deeds (whose rewards) a believer will recover after his death are sacred knowledge he taught and spread, a pious child he left behind, a copy of the Quran he left as a legacy, a masjid he constructed or a house he built for the traveller, a stream he set flowing, or voluntary charity he gave from his wealth while he was alive and healthy – they will continue to reach him after his death” “Sacred knowledge he taught and spread” is general and includes authorized works or books. “A copy of the Quran as a legacy” for people to read from, it can also be Islamic sciences and religious literature. The masjid he made can be his school. Giving charity when a person is alive is better than when he is dead because your deeds stop in your grave. Hadeeth 105
“Verily Al**h supports this religion even with a sinner” Sometimes, a sinful person (or even an unbeliever) may do something that could be done (knowingly or) unknowingly which might be of benefit to the faith. For example: A person may establish a masjid or madrasa with corrupt intentions or to compete with another. Many Muslims may benefit from the masjid or madrasa but the person would be sinning because of his corrupt intentions.
“One of the signs of the final hour is that people will boast to each other in (the grand construction) of masjids” Hadeeth 107
“The cure to ignorance is to question”
You can ask questions regarding faith to seek answers – namaaz etc. Hadeeth 108
“Actions will be judged only according to their sealing states (at death)” A person will be judged in the hereafter according to the state he dies in. A hadeeth of the messenger of Al**h (SAW) explained that if a person does good all his life but near death he does bad things then he dies as a bad person and vice versa. Hadeeth 109
“The grave is but a garden from the gardens of paradise or a pit from the pits of hellfire” A hadeeth scholar said “Whoever remembers the grave frequently will find it to be a garden of paradise, and whoever is heedless of its remembrance will find it to be a pit of hellfire.” You should do good things in your life not bad then you would have a choice of what you want in your grave. Hadeeth 110
