Five are martyrs

1247. Narrated Aboo Huraira (radhi Allaahu anhu) : Allaah’s Messenger (Sallallaahu Alaihi Wasallam) said,

“While a man was going on a way, he saw a thorny branch and removed it from the way and Allaah (Subhaanahu wata’alaa) became pleased by his action and forgave him for that.”

One who dies of plague,
one who dies of an abdominal disease,
one who dies of drowning,
one who is buried alive (and) dies and
one who is killed in Allaah’s cause.”

Great reward of attending the gatherings of knowledge

1405. Narrated Aboo Waaqid Al-Laithee (radhi Allaahu anhu) :

While  Allah’s Messenger (Sallallaahu Alaihi Wasallam) was sitting in the mosque with some people, three men came. Two of them came in front of Allaah’s  Messenger (Sallallaahu Alaihi Wasallam) and the third went away. The narrator added : The two persons kept on standing before Allaah’s  Messenger (Sallallaahu Alaihi Wasallam) for a while and then one of them found a place in the circle and sat there while the other sat behind them (the gathering,) and the third one went away. When Allaah’s  Messenger (Sallallaahu Alaihi Wasallam) finished his preaching, he said,

“Shall I tell you about these three persons? One of them betook himself to Allaah, so Allaah took him into His Grace and Mercy and accommodated him, the second felt shy from Allaah, so Allaah sheltered him in His Merccy (and did not punish him), while the third turned his face from Allaah and went away, so Allaah turned His Face from him (likewise).”

Daily-Hadith · Ibadah (Worship) · Siyam (Fasting)

As-Siyaam (fasting) is Junnah (protection or shield or a screen or a shelter from the Hell-fire)

706. Narrated Aboo Huraira (radhi Allaahu anhu):Allaah’s Messenger (Sallallaahu Alaihi Wasallam) said,

As-Siyaam (fasting) is Junnah (protection or shield or a screen or a shelter from the Hell-fire). So, the person observing Saum should avoid sexual relation with his wife and should not behave foolishly and impudently, and if somebody fights with him or abuses him, he should say to him twice, ‘I am observing Saum.’ “

The Prophet (Sallallaahu Alaihi Wasallam) added,

“By Him in Whose Hands my soul is, the smell coming from the mouth of a person observing Saum is better with Allaah (Subhanahu wata’alaa) than the smell of musk. (Allaah says about the fasting person), ‘He has left his food, drink and desires for My sake. The Saum is for Me.(*) So I will reward (the fasting person) for it and the reward of good deeds is multiplied ten times.’ “

[Saheeh Al-Bukhaari, Hadeeth No. 118, Vol. 3]

(*) (H.706) Although all practices  of worshipping are for Allaah Alone, here Allaah  (Subhanahu wata’alaa) singles out Saum (fast), because Saum cannot be practised for the sake of showing off as nobody can know whether one is observing Saum or not, except Allaah. Therefore, fasting is a pure performance that cannat be blemished with hypocrisy. (Fath-ul-Baaree, Vol. 5, p. 10).
