Five Priceless Advices

Abu Hurairah (radhiyallahu anhu) relates that Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said:

“Who will take these statements from me, so that he may act upon them, or teach one who will act upon them?”

So Abu Hurairah said:

“I said: ‘I shall O Rasulullah!’ So he (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) took my hand and enumerated five (things):

HOW TO BE THE MOST WORSHIPPING AMONGST THE PEOPLE

Stay away from the prohibitions (of Allah) and you shall be the most worshipping amongst the people.”

HOW TO BE THE RICHEST PERSON

Be pleased with what Allah has apportioned for you, and you shall be the richest amongst the people.”

HOW TO BE A MU’MIN (BELIEVER)

Treat your neighbour well, and you shall be a Mu’min.”

HOW TO BE A MUSLIM

Love for the people what you love for yourself, and you shall be a Muslim.”

HOW NOT TO KILL THE HEART

Do not laugh much, for much laughter kills the heart.”

(Saheeh due to the multiplicity of chains. Recorded by Imam Ahmad, Tirmidhi, al-Bayhaqi, and many others. The bolded headings are not part of the Hadith.)

عَنْ أَبِى هُرَيْرَةَ -رضى الله عنه- قَالَ: قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ -صلى الله عليه وسلم-:”مَنْ يَأْخُذُ عَنِّي هَؤُلاَءِ الْكَلِمَاتِ فَيَعْمَلُ بِهِنَّ، أَوْ يُعَلِّمُ مَنْ يَعْمَلُ بِهِنَّ؟”. فَقَالَ أَبُو هُرَيْرَةَ -رضى الله عنه-: فَقُلْتُ: “أَنَا يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ”. فَأَخَذَ بِيَدِي، فَعَدَّ خَمْسًا وَقَالَ:”اتَّقِ الْمَحَارِمَ تَكُنْ أَعْبَدَ النَّاسِ، وَارْضَ بِمَا قَسَمَ اللَّهُ لَكَ تَكُنْ أَغْنَى النَّاسِ، وَأَحْسِنْ إِلَى جَارِكَ تَكُنْ مُؤْمِنًا، وَأَحِبَّ لِلنَّاسِ مَا تُحِبُّ لِنَفْسِكَ تَكُنْ مُسْلِمًا، وَلاَ تُكْثِرِ الضَّحِكَ، فَإِنَّ كَثْرَةَ الضَّحِكِ تُمِيتُ الْقَلْبَ”
