(13) Abu Yahya Suhaib b. Sinan said that Rasulullah saw said: "Wondrous are the believer's affairs. For him there is good in all his affairs, and this is so only for the believer. When something pleasing happens to him, he is grateful, and that is good for him; and when something displeasing happens to him, he is enduring (sabar), and that is good for him." (Muslim)

(14) From Uthman ra: Rasulullah saw said: "The best of you is he who has learnt the Qur'an and then taught it." (Bukhari)

(15) Ibn Umar ra said that Rasulullah saw said: "Each of you is a guardian, and each of you will be asked about your guardianship. The leader is a guardian, and the man is a guardian over the people of his house, and the woman is a guardian over her husband's house and children. So each of you is a guardian, and each of you will be asked about your guardianship." (Bukhari, Muslim)

(16) Abdullah b. Amr b. al-As ra said that Rasulullah saw never used obscene talk nor did he listen to it. (Bukhari, Muslim)

(17).On the authority of Abu Hurayrah ra, who said that Rasulullah saw said: Allah swt said: "Whosoever shows enmity to someone devoted to Me, I shall be at war with him. My servant draws not near to Me with anything more loved by Me than the religious duties I have enjoined upon him, and My servant continues to draw near to Me with supererogatory works so that I shall love him. When I love him, I am his hearing with which he hears, his seeing with which he sees, his hand with which he strikes, and his foot with which he walks. Were he to ask (something) of Me, I would surely give it to him, and were he to ask Me for refuge, I would surely grant him it. I do not hesitate about anything as much as I hesitate about (seizing) the soul of My faithful servant. He hates death, and I hate hurting him." (Bukhari, hadist qudsi)

(18) From Anas: Rasulullah saw said: "Make things easy, and do not make them difficult, and give good tidings and do not make people run away." (Bukhari)

(19) From Abu Mas'ud al-Badri: Rasulullah saw said: "When a man spends to support his family hoping (for Allah's reward) it is counted for him as sadaqah." (Bukhari, Muslim)

(20) From Amr b. Shu'aib, from his father, from his grandfather: Rasulullah saw said: "He is not of us who has no compassion for our little ones and does not honor our old ones." (Abu Dawud, Tirmidhi)

(21) On the authority of Abu Hurairah ra, who said that Rasulullah saw said: Allah swt said: "I am as My servant thinks I am. I am with him when he makes mention of Me. If he makes mention of Me to himself, I make mention of him to Myself. And if he makes mention of Me in an assembly, I make mention of him in an assembly better than it. And if he draws near to Me a hand's span, I draw near to him an arm's length. And if he draws near to Me an arm's length, I draw near to him a fathom's length. And if he comes to Me walking, I go to him at speed." (Hadist Qudsi: Bukhari, Muslim, Tirmidhi, Ibn Majah)

(22) Ibn 'Umar ra said that Rasulullah saw said: "Do not talk for long without remembering Allah swt, for talking much without remembering Allah swt is hardness of the heart. The most distant among man from Allah swt is one with a hardened heart." (Tirmidhi)

(23) From 'Iyad b. Himar al-Mujashi'i ra: Rasulullah saw said: Allah swt has revealed to me: "You should be humble so that no one boasts over his neighbor nor anyone oppresses his neighbor." (Muslim) .
