spite of the utmost affection and ardour of the Prophet (PBUH) to bring them in the fold of Islam. People who fail to
accept Islam would fall in the Hell-fire in the same way moths fall in the fire.

Jabir (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: Messenger of Allah (PBUH) commanded the licking of fingers
(after eating) and the cleaning of the dish, saying:
"You do not know in what portion the Blessing (of Allah) lies".
In another narration, Jabir said: Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said,
"When a morsel of any of you falls down, you
should pick it up and remove any dirt or dust on it and then eat it; and don't leave it for Satan; and do not wipe your
hand with the towel until you have licked your fingers, for you do not know in what portion of the food the
Barakah* (of Allah) lies".
* Barakah is the abundance of goodness and its continuity.
Commentary: This Hadith enjoins Muslims to lick their fingers after meals, wipe off the food left in the utensils and
eat morsels which fall down in the course of eating. All these things have many advantages:
1. May be that is the blessed portion of the food which sticks to the fingers or utensils.
2. This practice is a sign of humility and aversion from the style of proud and haughty people.
3. It saves one from being ungrateful to Allah.
4. By these means one defeats Satan.
In the light of these Islamic injunctions one can very well judge violation of Islamic teachings and ungratefulness to
Allah which is evident from the large quantity of food which is thrown on the garbage.

Ibn `Abbas (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said,
"On the Day of
Resurrection you will be assembled barefooted, naked and uncircumcised".
He then recited:
"As We began the first
creation, We shall repeat it. (It is) a promise binding upon Us. Truly, We shall do it,''
and continued:
"The first to be
clothed on the Day of Resurrection will be (Prophet) Ibrahim. Then some of my Companions will be taken to the
left, (i.e., towards Hell-fire) and when I will say, 'They belong to my Ummah, O my Rubb!'
It would be said: 'You
do not know what they invented after you had left them.' I shall then say as the righteous slave [i.e., `Isa (Jesus
(PBUH)] said:
'And I was a witness over them while I was amongst them, when You took me up, You were the
Watcher over them and You are a Witness to all things. If you punish them, they are Your slaves, and if You forgive
them, verily, You, only You are the All-Mighty, the All-Wise.'
I shall be told: 'They continued to turn on their heels
since you parted from them".

1. We learn from this Hadith that the punishment of apostasy is Hell. For this reason, this crime is punishable by
death in Islam.
2. We also learn from this Hadith that the Prophet (PBUH) had neither knowledge of the Unseen nor is he
omnipresent and omniscient, as is falsely believed by deviated people. If he had the knowledge of the Unseen, or
had he been omnipresent and omniscient, he would not have accepted such persons as his Companions and
followers who were in fact apostates. This is the reason when he was informed of their real conduct through Wahy
