The substance of Eeman and The lowest degree of Eeman

Hadith & Seerah, The Teachings of the Holy Prophet, The Ways of the Prophet (SAWS)

Hadrat Tamim Dari narrated: The Messenger of ALLAH said, ‘Faith means sincerity of purpose and adherence.” We asked “Sincerity and adherence to whom?” He replied, To ALLAH, the Exalted, to His Book, to His Messenger, to the Chiefs and leader of Muslims and to the common people”. [Ma’arif -ul- Hadis, Muslim]

Hadrat Abu Sad al-Khidri (Radi Allaahu Ta’ala Anhu) narrated that the Messenger of ALLAH said, “If any one of you notices any thing evil and against the Sharii’ah, it is incumbent on him to set it right by force, if he possesses it, and through advice if he has no force or power, and if he is not in a position to do this even, then abhor it from the core of his heart. This is the lowest degree of Eeman. [Muslim, Ma’arif-ul-Hadis]
