1. We learn from this Hadith that wearing of gold ring is prohibited for men and so is wearing of golden ornament
by them. It is very unfortunate indeed that nowadays it has become a popular fashion to present men gold ring on
their marriage and they wear it with great pride. It is a very dangerous custom and must be altogether shunned for
two reasons. Firstly, it is an unnecessary formality and burden to exchange presents and hold big feasts on betrothal
ceremony. It is also open to objection in Islamic law. Secondly, to give and take unlawful things is all the more
forbidden and is akin to building one sin over another.
2. The spirit of obedience mentioned in this Hadith is matchless.

Abu Sa`id Al-Hasan Basri reported: `Aidh bin `Amr (the Companion) (May Allah be pleased with him) visited
`Ubaidullah bin Ziyad (the ruler) and said to him: "Son, I heard Messenger of Allah (PBUH) saying,
`The worst
shepherds (rulers) are those who deal harshly in respect of supervision. Beware, Don't be one of them!'''
Ibn Ziyad
said to him, "Sit down, you are but husk from among the Companions of the Prophet (PBUH).'' `Aidh bin `Amr
(May Allah be pleased with him) retorted: "Was there any husk among them? Surely, husk came after them and
among others than them".
This Hadith presents a model of courage and boldness of speaking the truth before a tyrant. It was
displayed by `Aidh (May Allah be pleased with him) in the court of Ubaidullah bin Ziyad, governor of Basrah. The
latter humiliated `Aidh (May Allah be pleased with him) for his straight forwardness and truth but he repeated his
statement about the eminence of the Companions of the Prophet ü and said none of them could be called husk.

Hudhaifah (May Allah bepleased with him) reported: The Prophet (PBUH) said,
"By Him in Whose Hand my
life is, you either enjoin good and forbid evil, or Allah will certainly soon send His punishment to you. Then you
will make supplication and it will not be accepted".
To abandon the practice of enjoining virtue and forbidding vice is likely to incur the displeasure of
Allah. This trend is indeed fraught with the danger of rejection of prayers and supplications by Him.

Abu Sa`id Al-Khudri (May Allah bepleased with him) reported: The Prophet (PBUH) said,
"The best type of
Jihad (striving in the way of Allah) is speaking a true word in the presence of a tyrant ruler.''
[Abu Dawud and At-Tirmidhi].
Jihad has many degrees. Preaching of virtue is also Jihad. The most meritorious of all is the effort of
communicating the Message of Allah to an unjust ruler. Similarly, if a society is so much given to a vice that no one
can dare to utter a word against it, then to protest against it can also be reckoned as the best Jihad.

Abu `Abdullah Tariq bin Shihab (May Allah bepleased with him) reported: A person asked the Prophet
(PBUH) (when he had just put his foot in the stirrup): "What is the highest form of Jihad?'' He (PBUH) said,
