Wisdom of the Holy Prophet

THE REVIEW OF RELIGIONS SEPTEMBER 1984 Wisdom of the Holy Prophet Ibn Umar and Ayesha relate that the Holy Prophet said: Gabriel kept exhorting me about the neighbor till I imagined he would in- clude him in the category of heirs. (Bukhari & Muslim) Abu Dharr relates that the Holy Prophet said: Abu Dharr, when you prepare broth, put plenty of water in it and take care of your neighbors (another version is: find out about the families of your neighbors and share it with them as may be suitable.) (Muslim) -«•»–«•»–»•»–«•»–«•»–«•»- Abu Hurairah relates that the Holy Prophet called out: By Allah, he does not believe, by Allah he does not believe, by Allah he does not believe. He was asked: Who does not believe, Messenger of Allah? He said: He whose neighbor is not secure against his mischief (Bukhari & Muslim). Muslim’s version is: That one will not enter paradise whose neighbor is not secure against his mischief. – 4 » K – 4 « » – – « « K – 4 » » – – 4 c » – – 4 « K Abu Hurairah relates that the Holy Prophet said: O Muslim women, disdain not doing a kindness to a neighbor, even if it were sending her a lamb’s shank. (Bukhari & Muslim) -«•»–<•>—<•»--«•>—<•»--«•»- Abu Hurairah relates that the Holy Prophet said: He who believes in Allah and the Last Day must not put his neighbor to inconve- nience; he who believes in Allah and the Last Day must honor his guest; and he who believes in Allah and the Last day must speak beneficently or keep quiet. (Bukhari & Muslim) Ayesha relates: A poor woman came to me begging with her two daughters. I gave her three dates. She gave one to each girl and raised the third to her own mouth to eat. The girls asked her for it. So she broke it into two parts and gave one to each of the girls. I was much struck by her action and mentioned what she had done to the Holy Prophet. He said: Allah appointed Paradise for her in consequence of it; or he said: Allah freed her from the Fire on account of it.
