And who doth greater wrong than he who hath been reminded of the revelations of his Lord, yet turneth away from them and forgetteth what his hands send forward to the Judgment?

So who-ever forsakes those doubtful things lest he may commit a sin, will definitely avoid what is clearly illegal; and who-ever indulges in these (suspicious) doubtful things bravely, is likely to commit what is clearly illegal.

Show me the market.'' So Abdur-Rahman did not return from the market) till he gained some dried buttermilk (yoghurt) and butter (through trading). He brought that to his house-hold. We stayed for some-time (or as long as Allah wished), and then Abdur-Rahman came, scented with yellowish perfume. The Prophet said (to him) ''What is this?'' He replied, ''I got married to an Ansari woman.'' The Prophet asked, ''What did you pay her?'' He replied, ''A gold stone or gold equal to the weight of a date stone.'' The Prophet said (to him), ''Give a wedding banquet even if with one sheep.''
And remember when We said unto the angels: Fall prostrate before Adam, and they fell prostrate, all save Iblis. He was of the jinn, so he rebelled against his Lord's command.

And the Book is placed, and thou seest the guilty fearful of that which is therein, and they say: What kind of a Book is this that leaveth not a small thing nor a great thing but hath counted it! And they find all that they did confronting them, and thy Lord wrongeth no-one.
Abdur Rahman bin Auf said, ''When we came to Medina as emigrants, Allah's Apostle established a bond of brotherhood between me and Sad bin Ar-Rabi'. Sad bin Ar-Rabi' said (to me), I am the richest among the Ansar, so I will give you half of my wealth and you may look at my two wives and whichever of the two you may choose I will divorce her, and when she has completed the prescribed period (before marriage) you may marry her.' Abdur-Rahman replied, ''I am not in need of all that. Is there any market-place where trade is practiced?' He replied, ''The market of Qainuqa.'' Abdur-Rahman went to that market the following day and brought some dried butter-milk (yogurt) and butter, and then he continued going there regularly. Few days later, AbdurRahman came having traces of yellow (scent) on his body. Allah's Apostle asked him whether he had got married. He replied in the affirmative. The Prophet said, Whom have you married?' He replied, A woman from the Ansar.' Then the Prophet asked, How much did you pay her?' He replied, (I gave her) a gold piece equal in weigh to a date stone (or a date stone of gold)! The Prophet said, Give a Walima (wedding banquet) even if with one sheep .' ''

And they are set before thy Lord in ranks and it is said unto them: Now verily have ye come unto Us as We created you at the first. But ye thought that We had set no tryst for you.
You people say that Abu Huraira tells many narrations from Allah's Apostle and you also wonder why the emigrants and Ansar do not narrate from Allah's Apostle as Abu Huraira does. My emigrant brothers were busy in the market while I used to stick to Allah's Apostle content with what fills my stomach; so I used to be present when they were absent and I used to remember when they used to forget, and my Ansari brothers used to be busy with their properties and I was one of the poor men of Suffa. I used to remember the narrations when they used to forget. No doubt, Allah's Apostle once said, ''Whoever spreads his garment till I have finished my present speech and then gathers it to himself, will remember whatever I will say.'' So, I spread my colored garment which I was wearing till Allah's Apostle had finished his saying, and then I gathered it to my chest. So, I did not forget any of that narrations.

Except if Allah will. And remember thy Lord when thou forgettest, and say: It may be that my Lord guideth me unto a nearer way of truth than this.
Allah's Apostle said, ''The Night of Qadr is in the last ten nights of the month (Ramadan), either on the first nine or in the last (remaining) seven nights (of Ramadan).'' Ibn Abbas added, ''Search for it on the twenty-fourth (of Ramadan).''
Feb 21, 2017
The Prophet said, ''Look for the Night of Qadr in the last ten nights of Ramadan ,' on the night when nine or seven or five nights remain out of the last ten nights of Ramadan (i.e. 21, 23, 25, respectively).''
Feb 20, 2017
Some will say: They were three, their dog the fourth, and some say: Five, their dog the sixth, guessing at random; and some say: Seven, and their dog the eighth. Say O Muhammad: My Lord is best aware of their number. None knoweth them save a few. So contend not concerning them except with an outward contending, and ask not any of them to pronounce concerning them.
Allah's Apostle used to practice Itikaf in the last ten nights of Ramadan and used to say, ''Look for the Night of Qadr in the last ten nights of the month of Ramadan ,''
Feb 19, 2017
And in like manner We disclosed them to the people of the city that they might know that the promise of Allah is true, and that, as for the Hour, there is no doubt concerning it. When the people of the city disputed of their case among themselves, they said: Build over them a building; their Lord knoweth best concerning them. Those who won their point said: We verily shall build a place of worship over them.
Feb 18, 2017
For they, if they should come to know of you, will stone you or turn you back to their religion; then ye will never prosper.
Allah's Apostle used to practice Itikaf (in the mosque) in the middle third of Ramadan and after passing the twenty nights he used to go back to his house on the 21st, and the people who were in Itikaf with him also used to go back to their houses. Once in Ramadan, in which he practiced Itikaf, he established the night prayers at the night in which he used to return home, and then he addressed the people and ordered them whatever Allah wished him to order and said, ''I used to practice Itikaf for these ten days (i.e. the middle 113rd but now I intend to stay in Itikaf for the last ten days (of the month); so whoever was in Itikaf with me should stay at his place of seclusion. I have verily been shown (the date of) this Night (of Qadr) but I have forgotten it. So search for it in the odd nights of the last ten days (of this month). I also saw myself (in the dream) prostrating in mud and water.'' On the night of the 21st, the sky was covered with clouds and it rained, and the rain-water started leaking through the roof of the mosque at the praying place of the Prophet . I saw with my own eyes the Prophet at the completion of the morning prayer leaving with his face covered with mud and water.
Feb 17, 2017
And in like manner We awakened them that they might question one another. A speaker from among them said: How long have ye tarried? They said: We have tarried a day or some part of a day, Others said: Your Lord best knoweth what ye have tarried. Now send one of you with this your silver coin unto the city, and let him see what food is purest there and bring you a supply thereof. Let him be courteous and let no man know of you.
Feb 16, 2017
I asked Abu Sa'id, and he was a friend of mine, (about the Night of Qadr) and he said, ''We practiced Itikaf (seclusion in the mosque) in the middle third of the month of Ramadan with the Prophet . In the morning of the 20th of Ramadan, the Prophet came and addressed us and said, I was informed of (the date of the Night of Qadr) but I was caused to forget it; so search for it in the odd nights of the last ten nights of the month of Ramadan. (In the dream) I saw myself prostrating in mud and water (as a sign). So, whoever was in l'tikaf with me should return to it with me (for another 10-day's period)', and we returned. At that time there was no sign of clouds in the sky but suddenly a cloud came and it rained till rain-water started leaking through the roof of the mosque which was made of date-palm leaf stalks. Then the prayer was established and I saw Allah's Apostle prostrating in mud and water and I saw the traces of mud on his forehead.''
And thou wouldst have deemed them waking though they were asleep, and We caused them to turn over to the right and the left, and their dog stretching out his paws on the threshold. If thou hadst observed them closely thou hadst assuredly turned away from them in flight, and hadst been filled with awe of them.
Feb 15, 2017
Some men amongst the companions of the Prophet were shown in their dreams that the night of Qadr was in the last seven nights of Ramadan. Allah's Apostle said, ''It seems that all your dreams agree that (the Night of Qadr) is in the last seven nights, and whoever wants to search for it (i.e. the Night of Qadr) should search in the last seven (nights of Ramadan).''
And thou mightest have seen the sun when it rose move away from their cave to the right, and when it set go past them on the left, and they were in the cleft thereof. That was one of the portents of Allah. He whom Allah guideth, he indeed is led aright, and he whom He sendeth astray, for him thou wilt not find a guiding friend.
Feb 14, 2017
And when ye withdraw from them and that which they worship except Allah, then seek refuge in the Cave; your Lord will spread for you of His mercy and will prepare for you a pillow in your plight.
The Prophet said, ''Whoever fasted the month of Ramadan out of sincere Faith (i.e. belief) and hoping for a reward from Allah, then all his past sins will be forgiven, and whoever stood for the prayers in the night of Qadr out of sincere Faith and hoping for a reward from Allah, then all his previous sins will be forgiven .''
Feb 13, 2017
that he asked Aisha ''How was the prayer of Allah's Apostle in Ramadan?'' She replied, ''He did not pray more than eleven Rakat in Ramadan or in any other month. He used to pray four Rakat —- let alone their beauty and length—-and then he would pray four —-let alone their beauty and length —-and then he would pray three Rakat (Witr).'' She added, ''I asked, O Allah's Apostle! Do you sleep before praying the Witr?' He replied, O Aisha! My eyes sleep but my heart does not sleep.''
These, our people, have chosen other gods beside Him though they bring no clear warrant vouchsafed to them. And who doth greater wrong than he who inventeth a lie concerning Allah?
Feb 12, 2017
That he was informed by Aisha, ''Allah's Apostle went out in the middle of the night and prayed in the mosque and some men prayed behind him. In the morning, the people spoke about it and then a large number of them gathered and prayed behind him (on the second night). In the next morning the people again talked about it and on the third night the mosque was full with a large number of people. Allah's Apostle came out and the people prayed behind him. On the fourth night the Mosque was overwhelmed with people and could not accommodate them, but the Prophet came out (only) for the morning prayer. When the morning prayer was finished he recited Tashah-hud and (addressing the people) said, ''Amma ba'du, your presence was not hidden from me but I was afraid lest the night prayer (Qiyam) should be enjoined on you and you might not be able to carry it on.'' So, Allah's Apostle died and the situation remained like that (i.e. people prayed individually). ''
And We made firm their hearts when they stood forth and said: Our Lord is the Lord of the heavens and the earth. We cry unto no god beside Him, for then should we utter an enormity.

Feb 10, 2017
Allah's Apostle said, ''Whoever prayed at night the whole month of Ramadan out of sincere Faith and hoping for a reward from Allah, then all his previous sins will be forgiven.'' Ibn Shihab (a sub-narrator) said, ''Allah's Apostle died and the people continued observing that (i.e. Nawafil offered individually, not in congregation), and it remained as it was during the Caliphate of Abu Bakr and in the early days of Umar's Caliphate.'' Abdur Rahman bin Abdul Qari said, ''I went out in the company of Umar bin Al-Khattab one night in Ramadan to the mosque and found the people praying in different groups. A man praying alone or a man praying with a little group behind him. So, Umar said, In my opinion I would better collect these (people) under the leadership of one Qari (Reciter) (i.e. let them pray in congregation!)'. So, he made up his mind to congregate them behind Ubai bin Ka'b. Then on another night I went again in his company and the people were praying behind their reciter. On that, Umar remarked, What an excellent Bid'a (i.e. innovation in religion) this is; but the prayer which they do not perform, but sleep at its time is better than the one they are offering.' He meant the prayer in the last part of the night. (In those days) people used to pray in the early part of the night.''
Feb 9, 2017
I heard Allah's Apostle saying regarding Ramadan, ''Whoever prayed at night in it (the month of Ramadan) out of sincere Faith and hoping for a reward from Allah, then all his previous sins will be forgiven.''

Feb 6, 2017

Feb 5, 2017
Lo! We have placed all that is in the earth as an ornament thereof that We may try them: which of them is best in conduct.
The Prophet came to Medina and saw the Jews fasting on the day of Ashura. He asked them about that. They replied, ''This is a good day, the day on which Allah rescued Bani Israel from their enemy. So, Moses fasted this day.'' The Prophet said, ''We have more claim over Moses than you.'' So, the Prophet fasted on that day and ordered (the Muslims) to fast (on that day).
Feb 4, 2017
Yet it may be, if they believe not in this statement, that thou Muhammad wilt torment thy soul with grief over their footsteps.
That he heard Muawiya bin Abi Sufyan on the day of Ashura' during the year he performed the Hajj, saying on the pulpit, ''O the people of Medina! Where are your Religious Scholars? I heard Allah's Apostle saying, This is the day of Ashura'. Allah has not enjoined its fasting on you but I am fasting it. You have the choice either to fast or not to fast (on this day).' ''
Feb 3, 2017
Quraish used to fast on the day of Ashura' in the Pre-lslamic period, and Allah's Apostle too, used to fast on that day. When he came to Medina, he fasted on that day and ordered others to fast, too. Later when the fasting of the month of Ramadan was prescribed, he gave up fasting on the day of Ashura' and it became optional for one to fast on it or not.

And say: Praise be to Allah, Who hath not taken unto Himself a son, and Who hath no partner in the Sovereignty, nor hath He any protecting friend through dependence. And magnify Him with all magnificence.
(who fought in twelve Ghazawat in the company of the Prophet). I heard four things from the Prophet and they won my admiration. He said; 1. ''No lady should travel on a journey of two days except with her husband or a Dhi-Mahram; 2. ''No fasting is permissible on the two days of Id-ul-Fitr and Id-ul-Adha; 3. ''No prayer (may be offered) after the morning compulsory prayer until the sun rises; and no prayer after the Asr prayer till the sun sets; 4. ''One should travel only for visiting three Masajid (Mosques): Masjid-ul-Haram (Mecca), Masjid-ul-Aqsa (Jerusalem), and this (my) Mosque (at Medina).''
Jan 28, 2017
Say unto mankind: Cry unto Allah, or cry unto the Beneficent, unto whichsoever ye cry it is the same. His are the most beautiful names. And thou Muhammad, be not loud-voiced in thy worship nor yet silent therein, but follow a way between.
A man went to Ibn Umar I. and said, ''A man vowed to fast one day (the sub-narrator thinks that he said that the day was Monday), and that day happened to be Id day.'' Ibn Umar said, ''Allah orders vows to be fulfilled and the Prophet forbade the fasting on this day (i.e. Id).''
Jan 27, 2017
They fall down on their faces, weeping, and it increaseth humility in them.
Two fasts and two kinds of sale are forbidden: fasting on the day of Id ul Fitr and Id-ul-Adha and the kinds of sale called Mulamasa and Munabadha. (These two kinds of sale used to be practiced in the days of Pre-lslamic period of ignorance; Mulamasa means when you touch something displayed for sale you have to buy it; Munabadha means when the seller throws something to you, you have to buy it.)
Jan 26, 2017
Saying: Glory to our Lord! Verily the promise of our Lord must be fulfilled.

Jan 24, 2017
And it is a Qur'an that We have divided, that thou mayst recite it unto mankind at intervals, and We have revealed it by successive revelation.
The people doubted whether the Prophet was fasting on the day of Arafat or not, so I sent milk while he was standing at Arafat, he drank it and the people were looking at him.
Jan 23, 2017
With truth have We sent it down, and with truth hath it descended. And We have sent thee as naught else save a bearer of good tidings and a warner.
''While the people were with me on the day of Arafat they differed as to whether the Prophet was fasting or not; some said that he was fasting while others said that he was not fasting. So, I sent to him a bowl full of milk while he was riding over his camel and he drank it.''

That the Prophet asked him (Imran) or asked a man and Imran was listening, ''O Abu so-and-so! Have you fasted the last days of this month?''

Through another series of narrators Imran said, ''The Prophet said, (Have you fasted) the last days of Sha'ban?''

The Prophet paid a visit to Um-Sulaim and she placed before him dates and ghee. The Prophet said, ''Replace the ghee and dates in their respective containers for I am fasting.'' Then he stood somewhere in her house and offered an optional prayer and then he invoked good on Um-Sulaim and her family. Then Um-Sulaim said, ''O Allah's Apostle! I have a special request (today).'' He said, ''What is it?'' She replied, ''(Please invoke for) your servant Anas.'' So Allah's Apostle did not leave anything good in the world or the Hereafter which he did not invoke (Allah to bestow) on me and said, ''O Allah! Give him (i.e. Anas) property and children and bless him.'' Thus I am one of the richest among the Ansar and my daughter Umaina told me that when A-Hajjaj came to Basra, more than 120 of my offspring had been buried.

I replied, ''O Allah's Apostle! (I can fast more).'' He said, ''Five?'' I replied, ''O Allah's Apostle! (I can fast more).'' He said, ''Seven?'' I replied, ''O Allah's Apostle! (I can fast more).'' He said, ''Nine (days per month)?'' I replied, ''O Allah's Apostle! (I can fast more)'' He said, ''Eleven (days per month)?'' And then the Prophet said, ''There is no fast superior to that of the Prophet David it was for half of the year. So, fast on alternate days.''
And he whom Allah guideth, he is led aright; while, as for him whom He sendeth astray, for them thou wilt find no protecting friends beside Him, and We shall assemble them on the Day of Resurrection on their faces, blind, dumb and deaf; their habitation will be hell; whenever it abateth, We increase the flame for them.
Jan 14, 2017
Say: Allah sufficeth for a witness between me and you. Lo! He is Knower, Seer of His slaves.
The Prophet said to me, ''You fast daily all the year and pray every night all the night?'' I replied in the affirmative. The Prophet said, ''If you keep on doing this, your eyes will become weak and your body will get tired. He who fasts all the year is as he who did not fast at all. The fasting of three days (a month) will be equal to the tasting of the whole year.'' I replied, ''I have the power for more than this.'' The Prophet said, ''Then fast like the fasting of David who used to fast on alternate days and would never flee from the battle field, on meeting the enemy.

Abdullah said, ''I can recite more (in a month),'' and the argument went on till the Prophet said, ''Recite the Qur'an once each three days.'' (i.e. you must not recite the whole Qur'an in less than three days).
Jan 12, 2017
And naught prevented mankind from believing when the guidance came unto them save that they said: Hath Allah sent a mortal as His messenger?
The news of my daily fasting and praying every night throughout the night reached the Prophet. So he sent for me or I met him, and he said, ''I have been informed that you fast everyday and pray every night (all the night). Fast (for some days) and give up fasting (for some days); pray and sleep, for your eyes have a right on you, and your body and your family (i.e. wife) have a right on you.'' I replied, ''I have more power than that (fasting).'' The Prophet said, ''Then fast like the fasts of (the Prophet) David''. I said, ''How?'' He replied, ''He used to fast on alternate days, and he used not to flee on meeting the enemy.'' I said, ''From where can I get that chance?'' ('Ata' said, ''I do not know how the expression of fasting daily throughout the life occurred.'') So, the Prophet said, twice, ''Whoever fasts daily throughout his life is just as the one who does not fast at all.''
Jan 11, 2017

Allah's Apostle was informed that I had taken an oath to fast daily and to pray (every night) all the night throughout my life (so Allah's Apostle came to me and asked whether it was correct): I replied, ''Let my parents be sacrificed for you! I said so.'' The Prophet said, ''You can not do that. So, fast for few days and give it up for few days, r ray and sleep. Fast three days a month as the reward of good deeds is multiplied ten times and that will be equal to one year of fasting.'' I replied, ''I can do better than that.'' The Prophet said to me, ''Fast one day and give up fasting for a day and that is the fasting of Prophet David and that is the best fasting.'' I said, ''I have the power to fast better (more) than that.'' The Prophet said, ''There is no better fasting than that.''
Jan 10, 2017
Or thou cause the heaven to fall upon us piecemeal, as thou hast pretended, or bring Allah and the angels as a warrant;
Allah's Apostle said to me, ''O Abdullah! Have I not been informed that you fast during the day and offer prayers all the night.'' Abdullah replied, ''Yes, O Allah's Apostle!'' The Prophet said, ''Don't do that; fast for few days and then give it up for few days, offer prayers and also sleep at night, as your body has a right on you, and your wife has a right on you, and your guest has a right on you. And it is sufficient for you to fast three days in a month, as the reward of a good deed is multiplied ten times, so it will be like fasting throughout the year.'' I insisted (on fasting) and so I was given a hard instruction. I said, ''O Allah's Apostle! I have power.'' The Prophet said, ''Fast like the fasting of the Prophet David and do not fast more than that.'' I said, ''How was the fasting of the Prophet of Allah, David?'' He said, ''Half of the year,'' (i.e. he used to fast on every alternate day). Afterwards when Abdullah became old, he used to say, ''It would have been better for me if I had accepted the permission of the Prophet (which he gave me i.e. to fast only three days a month).''
Jan 9, 2017
Or thou have a garden of date-palms and grapes, and cause rivers to gush forth therein abundantly;
''Once Allah's Apostle came to me,'' and then he narrated the whole narration, i.e. your guest has a right on you, and your wife has a right on you. I then asked about the fasting of David. The Prophet replied, ''Half of the year,'' (i.e. he used to fast on every alternate day).
Jan 8, 2017
I asked Anas about the fasting of the Prophet. He said ''Whenever I liked to see the Prophet fasting in any month, I could see that, and whenever I liked to see him not fasting, I could see that too, and if I liked to see him praying in any night, I could see that, and if I liked to see him sleeping, I could see that, too.'' Anas further said, ''I never touched silk or velvet softer than the hand of Allah's Apostle and never smelled musk or perfumed smoke more pleasant than the smell of Allah's Apostle.''
Jan 7, 2017
Allah's Apostle used to leave fasting in a certain month till we thought that he would not fast in that month, and he used to fast in another month till we thought he would not stop fasting at all in that month. And if one wanted to see him praying at night, one could see him (in that condition), and if one wanted to see him sleeping at night, one could see him (in that condition) too.
Jan 6, 2017
The Prophet never fasted a full month except the month of Ramadan, and he used to fast till one could say, ''By Allah, he will never stop fasting,'' and he would abandon fasting till one would say, ''By Allah, he will never fast.''

The Prophet never fasted in any month more than in the month of Sha'ban. He used to say, ''Do those deeds which you can do easily, as Allah will not get tired (of giving rewards) till you get bored and tired (of performing religious deeds).'' The most beloved prayer to the Prophet was the one that was done regularly (throughout the life) even if it were little. And whenever the Prophet offered a prayer he used to offer it regularly .
Jan 4, 2017
And if We willed We could withdraw that which We have revealed unto thee, then wouldst thou find no guardian for thee against Us in respect thereof.

She replied, ''Your brother Abu Ad-Darda' is not interested in (the luxuries of) this world.'' In the meantime Abu Ad-Darda' came and prepared a meal for Salman. Salman requested Abu Ad-Darda' to eat (with him), but Abu Ad-Darda' said, ''I am fasting.'' Salman said, ''I am not going to eat unless you eat.'' So, Abu Ad-Darda' ate(with Salman). When it was night and (a part of the night passed), Abu Ad-Darda' got up (to offer the night prayer), but Salman told him to sleep and Abu Ad-Darda' slept. After sometime Abu Ad-Darda' again got up but Salman told him to sleep. When it was the last hours of the night, Salman told him to get up then, and both of them offered the prayer. Salman told Abu Ad-Darda', ''Your Lord has a right on you, your soul has a right on you, and your family has a right on you; so you should give the rights of all those who has a right on you.'' Abu Ad-Darda' came to the Prophet and narrated the whole story. The Prophet said, ''Salman has spoken the truth.''

Allah's Apostle said, ''Do not fast continuously day and night (practise Al-Wisal) and if anyone of you intends to fast continuously day and night, he should continue till the Suhur time.'' They said, ''But you practise Al-Wisal, O Allah's Apostle!'' The Prophet said, ''I am not similar to you;. during my sleep I have One Who makes me eat and drink.''
Jan 1, 2017

The Prophet said twice, ''(O you people) Be cautious! Do not practice Al-Wisal.'' The people said to him, ''But you practice Al-Wisal?'' The Prophet replied, ''My Lord gives me food and drink during my sleep. Do that much of deeds which is within your ability.''
