Collection of Short Hadith



Introduction:


The two most highly respected collections of hadith are the authenticated collections the Sahih Bukhari and Sahih Muslim. (Sahih literally means "correct, true, valid, or sound.") In addition to these, four other collections came to be well-respected, although not to the degree of Bukhari and Muslim's sahih collections. These four other collections are the Sunan of Tirmidhi, Nasa'i, Ibn Majah, and Abu Da'ud. Together these four and the two sahih collections are called the "six books" (al-kutub al-sitta). Two other important collections, in particular, are the Muwatta of Ibn Malik, the founder of the Maliki school of law, and the Musnad of Ahmad ibn Hanbal, the founder of the Hanbali school of law.


AKHLAK (Character)

"The best among you are those who have the best manners and character."
("Inna min akh-yarikum ahsanukum khuluqa")
Reporter: Hadhrat Abdullah ibn Amr (r), Source: Sahih al-Bukhari, Vol. 8: 56b


A'isha (RA), Prophet Muhammad's (SAW) wife, stated that, ‘The Prophet never used foul language and never entertained people with obscene jokes. He was well behaved when he entered the market places. His habit was not to repel evil with mutual evil. He was forgiving and could grant pardon." (Tirmizi) 


Righteousness is good character, and sin is that which wavers in your heart and which you do not want people to know about. - [Sahih Muslim] 


Narrated 'Abdullah bin 'Amr (Radi-Allahu 'anhu):The Prophet (Sallallahu 'Alaihi Wa Sallam) said, "Whoever has the following four (characteristics) will be a pure hypocrite and whoever has one of the following four characteristics will have one characteristic of hypocrisy unless and until he gives it up. 1. Whenever he is entrusted, he betrays. 2. Whenever he speaks, he tells a lie. 3. Whenever he makes a covenant, he proves treacherous. 4. Whenever he quarrels, he behaves in a very imprudent, evil and insulting manner." (Bukhari Vol. 1 : No. 33)

Messenger of Allah s.a.w said: There are three signs of a hypocrite: when he speaks he speaks lies, when he makes a promise he breaks it, and when he is trusted he betrays his trust. (Sahih Bukhari)


“Whoever believes in Allah and the Day of Judgment should speak what is good or keep silent.” (Sahih al-Bukhari, Sahih al-Muslim)


Rasul Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “Give due respect and regard to your children and decorate them with the best of manners.” [Abu Daud]


Abu Huraira, r.a., said that the Prophet of Allah, s.a.w, said, "If one has good manners, one may attain the same level of merit as those who spend their nights in prayer."
(Hadith - Bukhari's Book of Manners no. 285, Hakim, and Abu Dawud)



“Whoever has an atoms worth of kibr (pride) in his heart will not enter Paradise.” ~ Prophet Muhammad s.a.w [Sahih Muslim]

Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w) said: “Be kind, for whenever kindness becomes part of something, it beautifies it. Whenever it is taken from something, it leaves it tarnished.“ (Imam Bukhari’s Book of Muslim Manners)

Prophet s.a.w said : "Beware of envy because envy consumes (destroys) the virtues just as the fire consumes the firewood." [Abu Dawud]

Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w) said: “Verily, a man teaching his child manners is better than giving one bushel of grain in alms.” [Muslim]

ALLAH

"Do not be people without minds of your own, saying that if others treat you well you will treat them well and that if they do wrong you will do wrong. But (instead) accustom yourselves to do good if people do good and not to do wrong if they do evil.” — Prophet Muhammad (s) as reported in Al-Tirmidhi, Hadith 1325.

[Muslim]

HALAL / HARAM

Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said “That which is lawful is clear, and that which is unlawful is also quite clear. Between these two is that which is ambiguous, which most people do not know. One who avoids the doubtful safeguards his faith and his honour.” [Riyadh-us-Salaheen, Hadith 588]

The lowest of the Iman is to remove some harmful thing from the street. And modesty is a part of al-Iman." [Muslim: Book 1 Hadith 56]

Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w) said: “Be kind, for whenever kindness becomes part of something, it beautifies it. Whenever it is taken from something, it leaves it tarnished.”
(Imam Bukhari’s Book of Muslim Manners)

In (kindness to) every living being there is reward. (Bukhari)

A man said to the Prophet (peace be upon him) , "Advise me!" The Prophet said, "Do not become angry and furious." The man asked (the same question) again and again, and the Prophet said in each case, "Do not become angry and furious." [Bukhari, Vol 8, Book 73. Hadith 137]


PARENTS



Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: A person came to Messenger of Allah (PBUH) and asked, "Who among people is most deserving of my fine treatment?'' He (PBUH) said, "Your mother". He again asked, ``Who next?'' "Your mother", the Prophet (PBUH) replied again. He asked, "Who next?'' He (the Prophet (PBUH)) said again, "Your mother.'' He again asked, "Then who?'' Thereupon he (PBUH) said,'' Then your father.'' [Muslim]


In another narration: "O Messenger of Allah! Who is most deserving of my fine treatment?'' He (PBUH) said, "Your mother, then your mother, then your mother, then your father, then your nearest, then nearest". [Al-Bukhari and Muslim]


Abu Huraira r.a reported that a person said: Allah's Messenger (peace be upon him), who amongst the people is most deserving of my good treatment? He said: Your mother, again your mother, again your mother, then your father, then your nearest relatives according to the order (of nearness). [Muslim 6181]


Prophet Muhammad (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “The curse of Allah is on the one who causes difficulty to his mother. The curse of the angels and the curse of mankind are on him. Allah neither accepts his fardh nor his nafl worship as long as he does not repent and obey his mother. He has to gain her pleasure as best he can. Allah’s pleasure depends on the mother’s pleasure and His wrath is concealed in her wrath.” [Ahmad]


Allah's Apostle (pbuh) said, "Shall I inform you of the biggest of the great sins?" They said, "Yes, O Allah's Apostle!" He said, "To join partners in worship with Allah, and to be undutiful to one's parents. " (Bukhari :: Book 8 :: Volume 74 :: Hadith 290)

6. A person who practices charity so secretly that his left hand does not know what his right hand has given (i.e. nobody knows how much he has given in charity).
7. A person who remembers Allah in seclusion and his eyes get flooded with tears."

(Sahih Bukhari, Volumn 002, Book 024, Hadith Number 504)

Narrated Abu Hurairah: Allah’s Messenger said, “It is from the excellence of (a believer’s) Islam that he should abandon that which is of no benefit to him (in this world and the Hereafter).” (At-Tirmidhi)
