A few short words to live by

18Oct08

Abdullah bin Salam رضي الله عنه reported that the first thing that he heard from the Prophet صلي الله عليه و سلم when he entered Madinah was:

ايها النس: أفشوا السلام, و أطعموا الطعام, و صلوا الأرحام, و صلوا با لليل و الناس نيام, تدخلوا الجنة بسلام

“O people! Spread (the greeting of) peace, provide food (for the needy), be kind to your kin, and pray at night while people are asleep – you would then enter jannah in peace.”

[Recorded by Tirmidhi. Verified to be authentic by al-Albani (Sahih ut-Targhib wat-Tarhib no. 616).]
