    Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) narrated that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said:

    " أَنْزَلَ اللَّهُ تَعَالَى فِي كِتَابِهِ ، فَذَكَرَ قَوْمًا اسْتَكْبَرُوا فَقَالَ : إِنَّهُمْ كَانُوا إِذَا قِيلَ لَهُمْ لا إِلَهَ إِلا اللَّهُ يَسْتَكْبِرُونَ سورة الصافات آية 35 ، وَقَالَ تَعَالَى : إِذْ جَعَلَ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا فِي قُلُوبِهِمُ الْحَمِيَّةَ حَمِيَّةَ الْجَاهِلِيَّةِ فَأَنْزَلَ اللَّهُ سَكِينَتَهُ عَلَى رَسُولِهِ وَعَلَى الْمُؤْمِنِينَ وَأَلْزَمَهُمْ كَلِمَةَ التَّقْوَى وَكَانُوا أَحَقَّ بِهَا وَأَهْلَهَا سورة الفتح آية 26 ، وَهِيَ لا إِلَهَ إِلا اللَّهُ مُحَمَّدٌ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ " ، اسْتَكْبَرَ عَنْهَا الْمُشْرِكُونَ يَوْمَ الْحُدَيْبِيَةِ يَوْمَ كَاتَبَهُمْ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ فِي قَضِيَّةِ الْمُدَّةِ

    Allah has revealed in his book about a generation who was proud,

    [Truly, when it was said to them: La ilaha ill-Allah "(none has the right to be worshipped but Allah)," they puffed themselves up with pride (i.e. denied it)"] (Qur'an 37:35) and Allah said:

    [When those who disbelieve had put in their hearts pride and haughtiness, the pride and haughtiness of the time of ignorance, then Allah sent down His Sakinah (calmness and tranquility) upon His Messenger (peace be upon him) and upon the believers, and made them stick to the word of piety, and they were well entitled to it and worthy of it. And Allah is the All-Knower of everything] (Qur'an 48:26)

    and the word of piety was "Laa Ilaaha IlAllah Muhammad ar RasoolAllah".

    On the day of Hudaybiyah when the Prophet (peace be upon him) fixed the period for peace treaty at that time the Mushrikeen showed their arrogance against these wordings of piety (i.e, the Shahadah).

      Abu’d-Darda’ narrated that the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said:

      مَا شَيْءٌ أَثْقَلُ فِي مِيزَانِ الْمُؤْمِنِ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ مِنْ خُلُقٍ حَسَنٍ ، وَإِنَّ اللَّهَ لَيُبْغِضُ الْفَاحِشَ الْبَذِيءَ

      “There is nothing that will weigh more heavily in the balance of the believer on the Day of Resurrection than a good attitude, and verily Allah hates the foulmouthed person who speaks in an offensive manner.”

      - Narrated by At-Tirmidhi (2002) who graded the report as saheeh. Classed as saheeh by al-Albani in Saheeh at-Tirmidhi.

        Ar-Rabee Ibn Khutham had a disease in his leg. He used to go out for Prayer leaning on two men. They advised him, "O father of Muhammad, Allah has permitted you to pray at home as you have a legal excuse."

        He said, "Ok, but I hear the call to Prayer. Whoever could answer even if he creeps or crawl, it is better to do so."

          Isma'eel ibn Ziyad said:

          "'Ali passed by the mosques during the month of Ramadan, and there were lamps in them." He said:

          نَوَّرَ اللَّهُ عَلَى عُمَرَ قَبْرَهُ كَمَا نَوَّرَ عَلَيْنَا مَسَاجِدَنَا

          "MAY ALLAH FILL 'UMAR'S GRAVE WITH LIGHT AS HE FILLED OUR MOSQUES WITH LIGHT."

            Yaqoub bin Yusuf al-Mutawwi'i narrated:

            كان عبد الرحمان بن صالح الازدي رافضيا وكان يغشى أحمد بن حنبل، فيقربه ويدنيه، فقيل له:
            يا أبا عبدالله، عبد الرحمان بن صالح رافضي.
            فقال: سبحان الله، رجل أحب قوما من أهل بيت النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم نقول له (لا) تحبهم، هو ثقة


            Abdurrahman bin Saalih al-Azdi used to be a Raafidhi (i.e. a Shi'a extremist). He would visit Imam Ahmed bin Hanbal, and the Imam would honour him and let him sit close to him. It was said: O Aba Abdillah! He is Raafidhi!

            Imam Ahmed bin Hanbal replied: SubhanAllah! A person who loves the family of the prophet (peace be upon him) what do you want me to tell him: not to love them?! Verily, this man is a thiqa (a trustworthy believer).

              Ibn Taymiyyah (may Allah have mercy on him) said:

              وقد ذهب كثير من مبتدعة المسلمين : من الرافضة والجهمية وغيرهم إلى بلاد الكفار فأسلم على يديه خلق كثير وانتفعوا بذلك وصاروا مسلمين مبتدعين وهو خير من أن يكونوا كفار

              "Some extreme innovators, like Rafidhis and Mutazilis, went to non Muslim lands and many people accepted Islam because of them. Indeed it is a blessing that they have become Muslim - albeit extreme innovators - than to remain disbelievers."

                The Prophet (peace be upon him) said:

                وَالْفَخْرُ وَالْخُيَلاَءُ فِي أَصْحَابِ الإِبِلِ وَالسَّكِينَةُ وَالْوَقَارُ فِي أَصْحَابِ الشَّاءِ

                Boasting and haughtiness are among the camel owners, tranquility is with the sheep herders.

                  Ibn Taymiyyah (may Allah have mercy on him) said:

                  ولو وجد غيره مضطرا إلى ما معه من الماء الطيب أو النجس فعليه أن يسقيه إياه ويعدل إلى التيمم سواء كان عليه جنابة أو حدث صغير ومن اغتسل وتوضأ وهناك مضطر من أهل الملة أو الذمة أو دوابهم المعصومة فلم يسقه : كان آثما عاصيا والله أعلم

                  "And if he finds someone who is in dire need of the water that is with him, then he should give it to him to drink and perform Tayamum instead,

                  And whoever performs Ghusl or ablution and there is someone who is in dire need [of this water] from the people of the Millah (our Religion) or from the people of the Dhimmah (non-Muslims), or [even] their animals whose sanctity is preserved, yet does not quench their thirst then he is a disobedient sinner!"

                  And Allah knows best.

                    Abi Haazim narrated that Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) said:

                    " ثَلاثٌ مِنَ الإِيمَانِ : أَنْ يَحْتَلِمَ الرَّجُلُ فِي اللَّيْلَةِ الْبَارِدَةِ فَيَقُومُ فَيَغْتَسِلُ ، لا يَرَاهُ إِلا اللَّهُ ، وَالصَّوْمُ فِي الْيَوْمِ الْحَارِّ ، وَصَلاةُ الرَّجُلِ فِي الأَرْضِ الْفَلاةِ لا يَرَاهُ إِلا اللَّهُ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ "

                    Three things are from Imaan:

                    1. When a man has nocturnal emission during a cold night, so he gets up, only Allah sees him, and performs ghusl;

                    2. When a person fasts on a hot day;

                    3. And when a man prays in a barren land, where none but Allah sees him.

                    • Aban bin Abi Ayyaash narrated:

                      Once, some good food was served to Anas ibn Malik (may Allah be pleased with him) and [the person who served the food] was financially well to afford good food. As he (Anas) was eating, he kept a morsel of the food in his mouth for a while, then looked at the people and began to cry suddenly. Then he said,

                      “Wallaahi, I have accompanied people who, if they could get hold of this kind of food, they would have fasted even more often, and would have spent less time without fasting. One of them would find only milk mixed with water [as food], which he would drink and then fast on.”

                      - Narrated by al-Mu'afa ibn Imran al-Mawsili in his Kitaab al Zuhd, no. 215

                      • Habib bin Abi Thaabit narrated that Ibn Mas‘ood (may Allah be pleased with him) went out one day and some people started following him. He noticed them and asked them,

                        ألكم حاجة؟

                        “Do you need anything from me?” They said,

                        لا, ولكننا نريد أن نسير معك

                        “No, but we love walking with you.” Ibn Mas‘ood (may Allah be pleased with him) said,

                        ارجعوا فإن ذلك ذلة للتابع وفتنة للمتبوع

                        “Go away! This is a humiliation for the follower and a trial for the one who is being followed.”

                        • Imam Qurtubi narrated an incident of a Jew who was in need of something from the Khalifah Haroon al-Rasheed. The Jew visited his door for a year but was not able to have his needs fulfilled. One day he stood at the door and when Haroon al-Rasheed came out, the Jew rushed till he came and stood in front of him and said:

                          اتق الله يا أمير المؤمنين!

                          “Fear Allah O Commander of the Faithful!” Haroon al-Rasheed came down of his mount and fell down into prostration. When he raised his head, the Jew asked for his needs and it was fulfilled. When Haroon came back, it was said to him:

                          نزلت عن دابتك لقول يهودي!

                          “O Ameer al-Mu’mineen! You came down off your mount because of a Jew’s statement?” He said:

                          لا ، ولكن تذكرت قول الله تعالى : وإذا قيل له اتق الله أخذته العزة بالإثم فحسبه جهنم ولبئس المهاد

                          “No! Rather, I remembered the saying of Allah Subhanahu Wa Taa'la:

                          And when it is said to him, "Fear Allaah," pride in the sin takes hold of him. Sufficient for him is Hellfire, and how wretched is the resting place. (Qur"an 2:206)

                          (In a fear that he would fell under the people referred by this verse)

                            • Al-Abbas bin Muhammad Ad-Doori (may Allah have mercy on him) narrated that ‘Ali ibn Abu Hararah (may Allah have mercy on him) said:

                              كَانَتْ أُمِّي مُقْعَدَةٌ نَحْوَ عِشْرِينَ سَنَةً، فَقَالَتْ لِي يَوْمًا: اذْهَبْ إِلَى أَحْمَدَ بْنِ حَنْبَلٍ فَاسْأَلْهُ أَنْ يَدْعُوَ اللَّهَ لِي

                              “My mother was handicapped for twenty years. One day she said to me: ‘Go to Ahmad ibn Hanbal and request him to supplicate for me to be cured.’

                              I went to him (may Allah have mercy upon him) and knocked on his door, so he asked me what my need was. I told him that my mother was requesting that he supplicates for her to be cured. He replied in an angry tone:

                              نَحْنُ أَحْوَجُ إِلَى أَنْ تَدْعُوَ اللَّهَ لَنَا

                              ‘I am in greater need for someone to supplicate for me.’

                              As I was about to head back home, an old lady came out and said:

                              أَنْتَ الَّذِي كَلَّمْتَ أَبَا عَبْدِ اللَّهِ؟ قُلْتُ: نَعَمْ، قَالَتْ: قَدْ تَرَكْتُهُ يَدْعُو اللَّهَ لَهَا. قَالَ: فَجِئْتُ مِنْ فَوْرِي إِلَى الْبَيْتِ، فَدَقَقْتُ الْبَابَ فَخَرَجَتْ أُمِّي عَلَى رِجْلَيْهَا تَمْشِي حَتَّى فَتحَتِ الْبَابَ، فَقَالَتْ: قَدْ وَهَبَ اللَّهُ لِيَ الْعَافِيَةُ "

                              Did you speak to Abu Abdullah (Ahmad ibn Hanbal)? I said, Yes. She replied, ‘Ahmad ibn Hanbal started supplicating for your mother after you had left.’

                              WHEN I REACHED HOME, MY MOTHER CAME OUT WALKING ON HER OWN AT THE DOOR AND TOLD ME THAT ALLAH HAS CURED ME.

                              • Tubba and his people had been idol worshippers. While they were heading to Makkah on their way to Yemen, between Usfan and Amaj (a town between Makkah and Madinah) a group of Hudhayl ibn Mudrikah said to him:

                                "O king, may we guide you to a house of treasury ignored by kings before you, which contains pearls, aquamarine, corundum, gold, and silver?" Tubba said: Yes. The group said: "A house in Makkah which is worshipped by its people where they offer prayers."

                                In this way the people of Hudhayl wanted to get rid of him, since they knew that any king who wanted to own the house or tyrannize its place, was doomed to death. The king asked the two knowledgeable Jewish Rabbis about what was told to him.

                                Rabbis said: "They want to get rid of you and your soldiers. We know that no one can have the House of Allah on earth, if you followed them you would definitely perish as well as all who are with you." Tubba said: "What do you suggest me to do when I reach it?" Rabbis said: "Do what its people do, circumambulate around it and glorify it, be generous there, shave your head, and yield to it until you leave."

                                Tubba said: "What prevents you both from that?" Rabbis said: "By Allah it is the House of our father Ibrahim and it is as we told you but its people interfered between us and the House by the idols they stationed around it and the blood they shed there. THEY ARE IMPURE PEOPLE ASSOCIATING OTHERS WITH ALLAH."
