present-day Muslims do not pay much attention. Because of the lack of understanding of Islamic principles, no one
pays heed to the proper formation of rows in mosques in congregational Salat.

Abu Musa (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: A house in Al-Madinah caught fire at night and the roof
and walls
fell down upon the occupants. When this was reported to Messenger of Allah (PBUH) he said,
"Fire is your enemy;
so put it out before you go to bed".
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].
The order of the Prophet (PBUH) in this Hadith relates to the lamps which produced light by means
of oil and wick which can cause fire. Such lamps were used in the time of the Prophet (PBUH). There is no such risk
in electric bulbs which are being used in the present age.

Abu Musa (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said,
"The similitude of
guidance and knowledge with which Allah has sent me is like a rain which has fallen on some ground. A fertile part
of earth has absorbed water and brought forth much grass and herbs. Another part, which is solid, held the water and
Allah benefits men thereby, who drank and gave others to drink, and used it for irrigation. But some of it has fallen
on a portion of sandy land which neither retains the water nor produces herbage. Such is the likeness of the man who
understands the religion of Allah and who gets benefit of what Allah has sent me with; he learns and teaches others.
It is also the likeness of the man who neither raises his head on that account (meaning he does not benefit from what
the Prophet (PBUH) was sent with) nor accepts Allah's Guidance with which I am sent".
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].
In this Hadith the guidance and knowledge which was sent to mankind through the Prophet (PBUH)
is compared to the rain which is beneficial, because this knowledge resuscitates the dead hearts as does the rain to a
barren land. One who makes use of this knowledge is likened to a good soil, and one who acquires this knowledge
and imparts it to others but does not put it into practice is considered akin to a hard land which holds water and other
people utilize it. A person who neither learns it nor acts upon it is like a desolate land which neither holds water nor
produces anything. Such a person is the worst of all because he neither himself benefits from it nor lets others make
use of it. This Hadith induces one to acquire knowledge, impart it to others, put it into actual practice and warns
people from neglecting this duty.

Jabir (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said,
"My parable and that of
yours is like a man who kindled a fire. When it has illuminated all around him, the moths and grasshoppers began to
fall therein. He tried to push them away, but they overcame him and jumped into it. I am catching hold of your
waists ties (to save you) from fire, but you slip away from my hands".
This Hadith mentions the extreme kindness which the Prophet (PBUH) had for the welfare of his
followers. It also mentions the misfortune of those who would become the fuel of Hell for not accepting Islam in
