`Aishah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Quraish were much worried about the case of a
Makhzumiyah woman who had committed theft and wondered who should intercede for her with Messenger of
Allah (PBUH) (so that she would not get punished for her crime). Some said Usamah bin Zaid (May Allah be
pleased with him) was his beloved and so he may dare do so. So Usamah(May Allah be pleased with him) spoke to
him about that matter and the Prophet (PBUH) said to him,
"Do you intercede when one of the legal punishments
ordained by Allah has been voilated?''
Then he got up and addressed the people saying, "
The people before you were
ruined because when a noble person amongst them committed theft, they would leave him, but if a weak person
amongst them committed theft, they would execute the legal punishment on him. By Allah, were Fatimah, the
daughter of Muhammad, to commit the theft, I would have cut off her hand.''
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].
The example of Allah's Messenger (PBUH) clearly tells us that no intercession is allowed for a
person who transgresses the limits set by Allah. And if anybody has the audacity to do so, the deciding authority is
presumed to be impervious to his solicitation. Nor should the criminal's social status or family influence, if any,
obstruct the administration of justice. The law and retribution rise above all discrimination and social hierarchy. Any
contravention in this regard is enough to incur Divine wrath.

Anas (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Prophet (PBUH) noticed spittle in the mosque in the
direction of the Qiblah. The signs of disgust were perceived on his face. Then, he stood up and scraped it away with
his own hand and said,
"When you stand in Salat, you hold communion with your Rubb and He is between you and
the Qiblah. Let no one therefore cast out his spittle in that direction, but only to his left or under his foot.'' Then he
caught hold a corner of his sheet, spat into it and folded it up and said, "Or he should do like this.''
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].
Worshippers are under obligation to observe certain manners in the mosque with the most important
being abstinence from spitting towards Qiblah
. Instead the method pointed out in the Hadith may be put in
effect right during Salat
Yet one, if not offering Salat, can turn to the mosque's washing-place where a
channel exists for the outflow of unclean water, etc. Obviously, it is a better substitute for a pocket-handkerchief or
sheet which should be used when necessary. Second, this Hadith tells us that every effort should be made to keep the
place of worship neat and clean, and if anyone finds some dirt in the mosque, he should immediately remove it.
