Narrated Abu Huraira

The Prophet said, “I shall accept the invitation even if I were invited to a meal of a sheep’s trotter, and I shall accept the gift even if it were an arm or a trotter of a sheep.”

Narrated by Abu Hurairah(Radhiallaho anho):
Allah’s Messenger (sallAllaahu `alaihi wasallam) said: Do you know  who is poor?


They (the Companions of the Prophet) said: A poor man  amongst us is one who has neither dirham with him nor wealth.


He (the  Prophet) said:


The poor of my Ummah would be he who would come on the  Day of Resurrection with prayers and fasts and Zakat but (he would  find himself bankrupt on that day as he would have exhausted his  funds of virtues) since he hurled abuses upon others, brought calumny against others and unlawfully consumed the wealth of others and shed  the blood of others and beat others, and his virtues would be  credited to the account of one (who suffered at his hand). And if his  good deeds fall short to clear the account, then his sins would be  entered in (his account) and he would be thrown in the Hell-Fire.
Sahih Muslim Number 6251

Narrated by Abdullah ibn Amr ibn al-’As (Radhiallaho anho):
Allah’s Messenger (sallAllaahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said:

When you hear the Mu’adhdhin (who says Adhan), repeat what he says, then invoke a blessing on me, for everyone who invokes a blessing on me will receive ten blessings from Allah: then beg from Allah al-Wasilah for me, which is a rank in Paradise fitting for only one of Allah’s Servants, and I hope that I may be that one. If anyone who asks that I be given the Wasilah, he will be assured of my intercession.

Sahih Muslim Number 747

The Prophet s said, “Whoever fasts Ramadan and follows it with six days from Shawwal it is as if they fasted the entire year.” (Sahih Muslim)


Based on the above hadith the majority of scholars, hanafi, Shafi`i, and Hanbali schools, state that it is recommended to fast six days of the month of Shawwal.


It is permitted to fast these six days separately throughout the month, or consecutively, after Eid al-Fitr and they consider it prohibitively disliked (makruh tahriman – hanafis) and sinful to fast on Eid day itself.

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) used to have a tent put up for him, and he would stay in it, apart from the times of prayer, so that he could be truly secluded. This was in the mosque and it is probable that the tent would be placed over his bed or mattress, as reported in the hadeeth of ‘Aa’ishah (may Allaah be pleased with her), who said:


“The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) used to do I’tikaaf in the last ten days of Ramadaan, and I used to put up a tent for him. He would pray Fajr, then go into the tent…”

(Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 4/810, Fath al-Baari). -

The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said:

“Allah is pleased with a person who eats some food and then praises Him (Allah) for it, or who drinks some drink and then praises Him (Allah) for it.”

[Sahih Muslim, Book Pertaining to the Remembrance of Allah, Supplication, Repentance and Seeking Forgiveness, Hadith: 2734]
