1. By qualifying the obedience of Muslim rulers with Salat, it has been made clear that what actually distinguishes
between Kufr and Islam is Salat.
2. If a person has the power to stop the rulers from committing evil deeds, he must use this power for it. If he is
incapable of it, he should at least condemn their evil deeds in his heart. To join or acquiesce in the evil deeds of the
rulers is an extremely dangerous trend. From this angle, participation in political parties is a dangerous affair
because when these parties come into power, all their members have to endorse and pursue their good as well as bad

Zainab (May Allah be pleased with her) reported: The Prophet (PBUH) came to visit me one day frightened
and he ü said,
"La ilaha illallah (There is no true God but Allah). Woe to the Arabs because of an evil which has
drawn near! Today an opening of this size has been made in the barrier restraining Ya'juj and Ma'juj
(Gog and
Magog people).'' And he (PBUH) made a circle with his thumb and index finger. I said, ``O Messenger of Allah!
Shall we perish while still there will be righteous people among us?'' He (PBUH) replied,
``Yes, when wickedness

This Hadith also tells us about the ominous of sin. It says that when vice becomes common, then in
spite of the presence of some virtuous persons, that community will be destroyed. But on the Day of Resurrection,
those noble persons who had done their duty of preaching virtue and checking vice will stand apart from the sinners.
Thus this Hadith induces one to keep away from sins.

Abu Sa`id Al-Khudri (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Prophet (PBUH) said,
"Beware of sitting
on roads (ways).
'' The people said: "We have but them as sitting places.'' Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said,
"If you
have to sit there, then observe the rights of the way"
. They asked, "What are the rights of the way?'' He (PBUH)
"To lower your gaze (on seeing what is illegal to look at), and (removal of harmful objects), returning
greetings, enjoining good and forbidding wrong".
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].
1. This Hadith tells us that it is improper to sit on roadsides and passages in such a way which causes inconvenience
to men and women who pass by. It is really very unfortunate that now we do not care about such things at all.
2. If sitting on roadside is indispensable at all, then it is essential to observe the requirements mentioned in the
Hadith to justify the needful.
3. Some other Islamic etiquette mentioned in this Hadith have also been stated in other Ahadith. For instance,
politeness of speech, sharing of someone's burden, helping the oppressed and the troubled, guiding the wayward
person to the right path, answering (in the prescribed manner) one who sneezes, etc.

`Abdullah bin `Abbas (May Allah be pleased with them) reported: Messenger of Allah (PBUH) saw a man
wearing a gold ring. So he (the Prophet (PBUH)) pulled it off and threw it away, saying,
"One of you takes a live
coal, and puts it on his hand.''
It was said to the man after Messenger of Allah (PBUH) had left: "Take your ring (of
gold) and utilize it,'' whereupon he said: "No, by Allah, I would never take it when Messenger of Allah (PBUH) has
thrown it away".
