The Pure Sunnah
The Prophet of Allaah (sallaAllaahu alayhi wasallam) said :
“The most beloved of people to Allaah are those who are of most benefit [to others].
The most of beloved actions to Allaah -The Most Glorious , The Most Mighty – is :
When you make another Muslim happy,
Removing a hardship that has befallen him,
Paying off a debt of his,
Or rid him of hunger.
It is more beloved to me indeed that I walk with my Muslim brother to see to a need of his than performing Itikaaf (secluding oneself) in this Masjid (Madinah) for a month…
Whoever restrains his anger, Allaah will cover his faults.
Whoever controls his fury – even if he is able to show it – Allaah will fill his heart with hope on the Day of Resurrection……” ”
[Silsilah as-Saheeha : 906]
The prophet (sallaAllaahu alayhi wasallam) said :
” O people ; Give salaams,
And feed those who are in need of food,
Tie the bonds of kinship,
pray in the night and forsake you sleep ;
you will enter paradise in peace”
[Silsilah as-Saheeha : 569]
