8. Sayyidina Abu Hurrayrah & Sayyidina Fadalah (Radi-ALLAHO-An-homa)
A Muslim is one from whose tongue and hand other Muslims are safe. A believer is one whom men do not fear concerning their lives and property. And the mujahid is one who makes jihad with himself so that he obeys ALLAH and the muhajir is one who withdraws from dis-obedience and sin. (Bukhari and Muslim)

9. Sayyidina Abu Uma’amah (Radi-ALLAHO-An-ho)
When your piety pleases you and your bad deed displeases you, you are a believer. (Ahmad and Mishkat)

10. Sayyidina Jabir (Radi-ALLAHO-An-ho)
The best discourse is the Book of ALLAH, and the best guidance is the one shown by Muhammad (SALLALLAHO-ALAIHE-WA-AALEHI-WASALLAM). The worst things are bid’ah (innovations) and every innovation is misguidance. . (Muslim and Mishkat)

11. Sayyidina Jabir (Radi-ALLAHO-An-ho)
My example and the message with which ALLAH has sent me is like the example of a man who came to a people and said, “O people! I have seen with my own eyes an army (as want to attack you). I am one to warn you, so flee, flee…” Some of his people obeyed him, and setting off at nightfall walked away and escaped. But some others did not believe him and stayed where they were. When it was dawn, the army came and surrounded them and destroyed them so that they were no more. This is the example of those who obeyed me and of those who belie me. (Bukhari, Muslim and Mishkat)

12. Sayyidina Abu Hurrayrah (Radi-ALLAHO-An-ho)
My example is like a man who has kindled a fire and when it lights up the neighborhood the insects that jump into the fire began to fall into it. He tries to prevent them but they persisted and continued falling into the fire. Thus, I seize you by the hennas of your dresses to pull you from the fire but you keep falling into it. (Bukhari, Muslim and Mishkat)

13. Sayyidina Abu Moosa (Radi-ALLAHO-An-ho)
The guidance and knowledge with which ALLAH has sent me are like abundant rain that fell on a land. Some part of the land was good, absorbed the water and brought forth plenty of herbage and pasture. Some area of the land was hard and retained the water whereby ALLAH gave benefit to men who drank themselves and let others drink and irrigated (fields) with that water. Some other portion of the land was unreceptive and could not retain water or produce herbage. This is like those people who attain knowledge of AALAH’s religion and receive benefit from the message given to me by ALLAH so they learn and teach others. It is also like those who do not even look up to learn and do not accept the guidance of ALLAH which I have been given. (Bukhari and Muslim)

14. Al-Miqdaam bin Ma’dikarb and Al-Irbaad bin Saariyah (Radi-ALLAHO-An-homa)
Heed it! I have been given the Qur’an and something else like it (the Sunnah). Remember! It is not far off when someone with a full stomach reclines on his couch and says, “Abide by the Qur’an. What you find declared lawful in it, treat it as lawful and what you find prohibited in it, treat it as prohibited.” But, in fact, what the Messenger of ALLAH has prohibited is like what ALLAH has disallowed. Listen carefully! By ALLAH, I have commanded you often, exhorted you frequently, disallowed you many things; and these are as many found in the Qur’an or more numerous. (Abu Dawood, Mishkat)
