FOUNDATION OF ISLAM

PART – 4

1.     Sayyidina Ibn ‘Umar (Radi-ALLAHO-An-ho)

        Islam is based five things:-

  1. The testimony, that here is none worthy, of worship              except ALLAH, and Muhammad (SALLALLAHO-ALAIHE-WA-AALEHI-WASALLAM) is HIS Servant and Messenger.
  2. The observance of prayer
  3. The payment of Zakah
  4. The performance of Hajj
  5. Fasting during the month of Ramadan. (Bukhari and Muslim)

 

  1. Sayyidina Anas (Radi-ALLAHO-An-ho)         

If three things are found in anyone, he will savour the sweetness of faith. They are that:

a. ALLAH and HIS Messenger (Peace Be upon Him) are dearer     to him than else.

 

b. He loves a human being for the sake of ALLAH alone.

 

c. After ALLAH has rescued him from dis-belief, he has             as great a dislike of returning to it as of being cast into Hell. (Bukhari and Muslim)

 

3.     Sayyidina Abbas (Radi-ALLAHO-An-ho)

He will savour the sweetness of faith who is pleased with ALLAH as his LORD, into Islam as (his) religion and with Muhammad (Peace Be upon Him) as Messenger. (Muslim)

 

4.     Sayyidina Anas (Radi-ALLAHO-An-ho)

        None of you is a Believer until I am (Peace Be upon Him) dearer to him than his father, his children and all mankind. (Bukhari and Muslim)

 

5.     Sayyidina Ibn ‘Umar (Radi-ALLAHO-An-ho)

        I have been ordered to fight against people till they testify that there is none worthy of worship except ALLAH and that Muhammad (Peace Be upon Him) is the Messenger of ALLAH, observe prayer and pay Zakah. So, if they perform these, then they save their lives and properties from me; except for the laws of Islam and their reckoning, that will be done by ALLAH alone. (Bukhari and Muslim)

 

6.     ‘Ubaidah bin as-Samit (Radi-ALLAHO-An-ho)

        Give me the pledge that:

        You will not associate anything with ALLAH, or steal, or commit fornication, or kill your children or speak slander forging falsehood, or be disobedient in doing the approved. As for one of you who fulfils his pledge, ALLAH will reward him. But as for him who perpetrates any of these things and receives punishment against it in this world, it will be an expiration for that sin. If one of you indulges in any of these things and ALLAH conceals it for him, it is in the HANDS of ALLAH-if HE wishes, HE may forgive him and if HE wishes, HE may punish him. (Bukhari and Muslim)

 

7.     Sayyidina Abu Uma’amah (Radi-ALLAHO-An-ho)

            If anyone loves (another) for the sake of ALLAH, hates (HIS enemy) for the sake of ALLAH, spends for the sake of ALLAH and withholds for the sake of ALLAH then he has perfected his faith. (Abu Dawood, Mishkat)
