Ways of doing good II PArt
Allah said in surah ِAn-Nahl 97: Whoever does a righteous deed, whether male or female, and has faith in Allah, surely, to him will we give a good life, a life that is good and pure and we will bless upon those their reward by the best of their actions. Baqara 215: And what ever you do of good deeds, truly, Allah knows it well. Allah also said in surah Al-Jathiya 15: Whosoever does a good deed; it is for his own self. Allah said: So, whosoever does good equal to the weight of an atom shall see it.
Abu Hurayrah r,a, reported that the Messenger of Allah said: While a man was walking on his way he became extremely thirsty. He found a well; he went down into it to drink water. Upon leaving it, he saw a dog, which was panting out of thirst. His tongue was lolling out and he was eating moist earth from extreme thirst.
The man thought to himself: This dog is extremely thirst as I was. So he descended into the well, filled up his leather sock with water, and holding it in his teeth, climbed up and quenched the thirst of the dog. Allah appreciated his action and forgave his sins. The companions asked; shall we be rewarded for showing kindness to the animals also? He said; a reward is given in connection with every living creature. Imam Bukhari and Imam Muslim.
In another narration the Prophet said: Allah forgave him in appreciation of this act and admitted him to paradise. Another narration says; once a dog was going round the well and was about to die out of thirst. A prostitute of Bane Israel happened to see it. So she took off her leather sock and lowered it into the well. She drew out some water and gave the dog to drink. She was forgiven on account of her action.
Abu Hurairah r,a, reported that the Messenger of Allah said: I saw a man going about in Jannah as a reward for cutting from the middle of the road, a tree which was causing inconvenience to the Muslims. M. Another narration says; A man who passed by a branch of a tree leaning over a road and decide to remove it, saying to himself, By Allah! I will remove from the way of Muslims so that it would not harm them. On account of this he was admitted to Jannah.
The act of saving people from harm and loss is greatly liked by Allah, no matter how small it is. Allah is greatly pleased if a person removes from the passage something that causes harm to people.
Abu Hurairah narrated that the Messenger of Allah said; He who performs his ablution (wudu) perfectly and comes to jumuah prayer and listen to the khutnah silently, the sins which he has committed since the previous Friday plus three more days (10 days) will be forgiven for him. One who distracts himself with pebbles during the khutbah will not get the jumuah reward. Imam Muslim.
Jabir r,a, reported that the Messenger of Allah said: Every good deed is charity. B. We come to know from this hadith that whatever good action and deed is done by a Muslim, he gets a reward of sadaqah on it.
Jabir r,a, reported that the Messenger of Allah said: When a Muslim plants a tree, whatever is eaten from it is charity from him and whatever is stolen is charity and whatever is subtracted from it is charity. Imam Muslim.
Abu Musa Al-Ash’ari r,a, narrated that the Messenger of Allah said: Giving in charity is an obligation upon every Muslim. It was said to him: What about one who does not find (to do so) He said: Let him work with his hands, thus doing benefit to himself and give in charity.
It was said to him, What if he does not have to do so? He said; then let him assist the needy, the aggrieved. It was said; What about if he cannot even do this? He said; then he should enjoin good, he was asked; what if he cannot do that? The Prophet said; He should then abstain from evil, for verily, that is a charity from him. Imam Bukhari and Imam Muslim.
