Umar Bin Khattaab (radi Allahu anhu) heard the Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) saying, “If you trust Allah with the right kind of Tawakkul, He will provide you sustenance as He provides for the birds – they go out in the morning with empty stomachs and come back in the evening with full stomachs.” [Tirmidhi]
The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “Allah will be pleased with His slave if, when he eats some food he praises Him for it, and when he drinks something, he praises Him for it.” [Muslim]
Reported by An-Nawwas bin Sam`an (RA): The Prophet (peace be upon him) said, “Piety is good manner, and sin is that which creates doubt and you do not like people to know of it.”
Prophet (peace be upon him) came to Madinah and saw the Jews fasting on the day of ‘Ashoora’. He said, “What is this?” They said, “This is a good day, this is the day when Allah saved the Children of Israel from their enemy and Moosa fasted on this day.” He said, “We are closer to Moosa than you.” So he fasted on this day and told the people to fast.” - Narrated by B
Fasting the day of ‘Ashoora’ expiates for the sins of the past year, because the Prophet (peace be upon him) said: “Fasting the day of ‘Arafah I hope Allaah will expiate thereby for the year before it and the year after it, and fasting the day of ‘Ashoora’ I hope Allaah will expiate thereby for the year that came before it.” - Narrated by Muslim
It is better to fast the day before it or the day after it. This is the Sunnah that is proven from the Prophet (peace be upon him), as he said, “If I am still alive next year, I will certainly fast the ninth.” - Narrated by Muslim
Riba is considered to be a greater sin, for Muslims, than that of eating pork or drinking alcohol. Mohammad(SAW) declared the practice of Riba worse than adultery: worse than “to a man committing adultery with his own mother”. [Recorded in Sunan Ibn Majah]
Riba (Arabic: ربا,) means usury and is forbidden in Islam. There are two types of riba.
1) Interest on loans. or An increase in capital without any services provided, which is prohibited by the Qur’an, and
2) That prohibited in the Sunnah which comprises commodity exchanges in unequal quantities.
> Interest from anywhere individual or bank.
> If its returned with additional amount its riba/interest.
> Interest is a fee paid on borrowed assets.
> It is the price paid for the use of borrowed money, or, money earned by deposited funds.
> Interest can be thought of as “rent of money”. Defined as the compensation paid by the borrower of money to the lender of money.
Why Riba is even worste than committing adultery with own mother ?
There are 2 kinds of deeds
1) Who affect our own selves. Like praying, consuming alcohal, sawm(fasting) eating pork etc
2) And we have acts which affects others as zakat, lying, sadqah(charity), murder. etc.
Riba actually is taking advantage by giving harm not only to several others but to future generations as well.
Reported by Anas (RA): The Prophet (peace be upon him) used to repeat his words thrice so that the meaning thereof would be fully understood, and whenever he came upon a gathering of people, he would greet them. He would repeat Salam thrice.
The sin of spreading rumors is so great that it may prevent those who actively or passively participate in it from entering paradise.
Allaah’s Messenger (peace be upon him) said, “The person who spreads rumors will not enter paradise. - Sahih Muslim
