Based on the work of the noble Shaikh al-Albaanee رحمه الله: “Silsilatu al-Ahaadeeth al-Saheehah”
37) From `Abdullaah bin Amr رضي الله عنه in marfoo` form: “The Most Merciful has mercy upon those who have mercy. Have mercy to those upon the earth and the One above the heavens will have mercy upon you. And the womb (the name ar-rahm – ties of kinship) is derived from al-Rahmaan, so whoever connects it, then Allaah will connect him, and whoever cuts it then, Allaah will cut him off.”
[Sunan Abu Dawood (4941), Tirmidhee (1924) and Shaikh al-Albaanee said in al-Saheehah (925): “Its men are trustworthy”; And in his checking of Sunan Abu Dawood and Tirmidhee he graded the Hadeeth as “Saheeh”]
38) Narrated Abu `Uthmaan: Usama bin Zaid رضي الله عنه said that while he, Sa`d and Ubai bin Ka`b were with the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم, a daughter of the Prophet sent a message to him, saying: “My daughter is dying; please come to us.” The Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم sent her his greetings and added: “It is for Allaah what He takes, and what He gives; and everything before His sight has a limited period. So she should hope for Allaah's reward and remain patient.” She again sent a message, beseeching him by Allaah, to come. So the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم got up and so did we (and went there). The child was placed on his lap while his breath was irregular. Tears flowed from the eyes of the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم. Sa`d said to him: “What is this, O Allaah's Apostle?” He صلى الله عليه وسلم said: “This is Mercy which Allaah has embedded in the hearts of whomever He wished of His slaves. And Allaah does not bestow His Mercy, except on the merciful among His slaves.”
[Saheeh al-Bukhaaree (1284, 5655, 6655, 7448)]
39) From Jaabir bin `Abdullaah رضي الله عنه in marfoo` form: “There are three characteristics in a hypocrite: (1) When he speaks he lies, (2) when he makes a promise he is untrustworthy, (3) and when is trusted he betrays.”
[al-Bazzaaar (87), al-Bukhaaree in “al-Taareekh” (4/2/386). Shaikh al-Albaanee said in al-Saheehah (1998): “it has supporting chains”]
40) Narrated Abu Hurairah رضي الله عنه: The Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said: “The signs of a hypocrite are three: (1) Whenever he speaks, he tells a lie. (2) Whenever he promises, he always breaks it (his promise). (3) If you trust him, he proves to be dishonest. (If you keep something as a trust with him, he will not return it.)”
[Saheeh al-Bukhaaree (32) and Saheeh Muslim (92, 93)]
41) Narrated `Abdullaah bin `Amr رضي الله عنه: The Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم 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.”
[Saheeh al-Bukhaaree (33, 2459) and Saheeh Muslim (91)]
42) From Abu Hurairah رضي الله عنه in marfoo` form: “I and the one who takes care of an orphan are in Paradise, as long as he fears Allaah, like these two.” And Maalik (the sub-narrator) indicated with his index and middle finger.
[Saheeh Muslim (5300) al-Saheehah (962)]
43) Narrated Sahl bin Sa`d رضي الله عنه: The Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said: “I and the person who looks after an orphan and provides for him, will be in Paradise like this,” putting his index and middle fingers together.
[Saheeh al-Bukhaaree (5304, 6005)]
44) Narrated Abu Hurairah رضي الله عنه: The Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said: “Avoid the seven great destructive sins.” They (the people) asked: “O Allaah's Apostle! What are they?” He said: “To join partners in worship with Allaah; to practice sorcery; to kill the life which Allaah has forbidden except for a just cause (according to Islaamic law); to eat up usury (Riba), to eat up the property of an orphan; to give one's back to the enemy and fleeing from the battlefield at the time of fighting and to accuse chaste women who never even think of anything touching chastity and are good believers."
[Saheeh al-Bukhaaree (2767, 6857) and Saheeh Muslim (132)]
