contains. An endeavour (fighting) in the Cause of Allah in the evening or in the morning is far better than the world
and all that it contains.
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].
This Hadith highlights the excellence of observing Ribat and fighting in the way of Allah. It also
highlights the insignificance of this world and the great reward in the Hereafter which can be attained through Jihad.

Salman (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: I heard the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) as saying,
Observing Ribat in the way of Allah for a day and a night is far better than observing Saum (fasting) for a whole
month and standing in Salat (prayer) in all its nights. If a person dies (while performing this duty), he will go on
receiving his reward for his meritorious deeds perpetually, and he will be saved from Al-Fattan
Good deeds of a Muslim who dies or is martyred on the frontier will perpetuate and will be credited
to his account till the Day of Resurrection; and like all other martyrs, sustenance will be provided to him even after
his death. As Allah says: `
Think not of those as dead who are killed in the way of Allah. Nay, they are alive, with
their Rubb, and they have provision
.'' (3:169)
'' here means the interrogation in the grave which the two angels Munkir and Nakir will conduct. Some
religious scholars said that observing Ribat serves the purpose of safeguarding religion and Islamic territories, while
fastings benefit only the person who performs it. It is a great trial which everyone has to pass through. But one who
is a Mu'min (
righteous Muslim
) goes through it easily by the Grace of Allah, and he will answer all the questions

Fadalah bin `Ubaid (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, "
actions of every dead person come to a halt with his death except the one who is on the frontier in Allah's way (i.e.,
observing Ribat). This latter's deeds will be made to go on increasing for him till the Day of Resurrection, and he
will be secure from the trials in the grave
[Abu Dawud and At-Tirmidhi].
This Hadith also mentions the merits of Jihad, especially of defending the frontiers (i.e., Ribat), as is
mentioned in the preceding Ahadith.
