Concise and foremost counsels Part 2

Hadith & Seerah, The Teachings of the Holy Prophet, The Ways of the Prophet (SAWS) / Wednesday, February 3rd, 2010

Hadrat Mu’az -bin- Jabal (Radi Allaahu Ta’ala Anhu) narrated that the Messenger of ALLAH recommended ten things to me saying:

(1) Do not associate anything with ALLAH even if you are put to death;

(2) Do not be disobedient to your parents, even if they command you to quit your family and property;

(3) Do not deliberately neglect to observe a compulsorily prescribed Salaah, for one who deliberately neglects a comulsorily prescribed Salaah, will have ALLAH’s protection removed from him;

(4) Do not drink wine, it is the root cause of all evils (so it has been called mother of all evils);

(5) Save yourself from all sins, because ALLAH’s wrath descends on account of sin;

(6) Do not run away from the engagement in Jihad even if the casualties be running high;

(7) When you are living with some people at a place where, due to epidemic, death becomes widespread, you stay there with determination (Do not run away from that place for the sake of your life);

(8) Spend on your family members according to your status and means (Do not be close fisted so much so that inspite of you having money the (family members) suffer. Similarly do not be spendthrift beyond your means;

(9) For educating them good manners, be strict and harsh (as the situation demands); and

(10) Cause them to fear ALLAH. [Musnad Ahmad, Ma’arif -ul- Hadis]
