Abu Humaid bin Sa`d As-Sa`idi (May Allah bepleased with him) reported: The Prophet (PBUH) employed a
man from the tribe of Al-Azd named Ibn Lutbiyyah as collector of Zakat. When the employee returned (with the
collections) he said: "(O Prophet (PBUH)!) This is for you and this is mine because it was presented to me as gift.''
Messenger of Allah (PBUH) rose to the pulpit and praised Allah and extolled Him. Then he said,
"I employ a man to
do a job and he comes and says: `This is for you and this has been presented to me as gift'? Why did he not remain
in the house of his father or the house of his mother and see whether gifts will be given to him or not? By Allah in
Whose Hand is the life of Muhammad, if any one of you took anything wrongfully, he will bring it on the Day of
Resurrection, carrying it on (his back), I will not recognize anyone of you, on the Day of Resurrection with a
grunting camel, or a bellowing cow, or a bleating ewe.'' Then he raised his hands till we could see the whiteness of
his armpits.
Then he said thrice,
``O Allah ! have I conveyed (Your Commandments)''.
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].
There is a stern warning in this Hadith for the government functionaries. Nowadays official positions
are very much misused and people have developed the habit of giving presents and gifts to them. According to this
Hadith, all such presents and gifts which are given to the government employees due to their official position are
unlawful and constitute bribery. The taking and accepting of bribery are both unlawful.

Abu Hurairah (May Allah bepleased with him) reported: The Prophet (PBUH) said,
"He who has done a wrong
affecting his brother's honour or anything else, let him ask his forgiveness today before the time (i.e., the Day of
Resurrection) when he will have neither a dinar nor a dirham. If he has done some good deeds, a portion equal to his
wrong doings will be subtracted from them; but if he has no good deeds, he will be burdened with the evil deeds of
the one he had wronged in the same proportion".
This Hadith tells us that if one does not compensate a person who has been harmed by one and has
not been pardoned for it, then it would have a serious consequence in the Hereafter. Its detail is mentioned in this
Hadith. Thus, negligence in the case of public rights, which we take very lightly, is in fact ruinous.

`Abdullah bin `Amr bin Al-`as (May Allah bepleased with them) reported: The Prophet (PBUH) said,
Muslim is the one from whose tongue and hands the Muslims are safe; and a Muhajir (Emigrant) is the one who
refrains from what Allah has forbidden".
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].
The Hadith shows that a true Muslim is one who does not do any harm to others, overtly or covertly.
Similarly, the true Muhajir is one who avoids disobeying Allah. Thus, if a person leaves his hearth and home to
emigrate to some other place but does not save himself from sins, his emigration is of no avail.

`Abdullah bin `Amr bin Al-`as (May Allah bepleased with them) reported: A man named Kirkirah, who was in
charge of the personal effects of Messenger of Allah (PBUH) passed away and the Prophet (PBUH) said,
"He is in
the (Hell) Fire.''
Some people went to his house looking for its cause and found there a cloak that he had stolen. [Al-
The Hadith shows that stealing and breach of trust fall in the category of major sins for which one
can be consigned to Hell.
