Hadith About Believes in Allah

Translation:

Let him who believes in Allah and the Last Day either speak good or keep silent, and let him who believes in Allah SWT and the Last Day be generous to his neighbour, and let him who believes in Allah and the Last Day be generous to his guest.

Explanation:

The gift of speech is undoubtedly a great blessing of Allah SWT which if properly used can do a lot of good, but irresponsible use of the tongue proves very harmful. Therefore, the Holy Prophet PBUH has exhorted Muslims to keep a careful watch over it. They must use it only for the propagation of good and refrain from indulging in idle or vulgar talk. The Holy Prophet PBUH advised one of his companions:

“Cultivate the habit of keeping silent much and talk less for it is the domain of faith.”(Baihaqi)

He also said:

“To keep quiet is better than telling a bad thing.” (Baihaqi)

Once the Holy Prophet PBUH held his tongue between his fingers and told his companions to keep it under control and not let it function without restraint. (Ahmad,Tirmizi)

It is evident that major evils and transgressions that are committed in society and in respect of which we are negligent, are mostly related to the tongue.

The Holy Quran instructs us to do good to neighbours who are near and neighbours who are strangers (4: 36) Our conduct towards our neighbours should be good and honourable making them feel safe and secure.

It is narrated that the Messenger of Allah said: “By Allah! He is not a true believer.

“He repeated this thrice. Someone asked him:“O Messenger of Allah!

Who is not a true believer? “The Prophet PBUH replied:

“Whose neighbour is not secure from his mischief.”(Bukhari)

He is also reported to have said:

“Treat your neighbour kindly; then you are of those who believe. ” (Tirmizi)

The same rule is applied to guests i.e., generous and hospitable behaviour.

The life of the Holy Prophet PBUH is a guide to us. When guests were in his house, the Holy Prophet PBUH would get up many times in the night to make sure that they were comfortable. He also taught his companions to be hospitable.

A Muslim should share all good things and not keep them only for himself Generosity and hospitality should be qualities of Muslims in every part of the world.
