    Advice (Hadith)


    Number 1889:

    Narrated AbuJurayy Jabir ibn Salim al-Hujaymi:

    I saw a man whose opinion was accepted by the people, and whatever he
    said they submitted to it. I asked: Who is he? They said: This is the
    Apostle of Allah (peace be upon him). I said: On you be peace,
    Apostle of Allah, twice. He said: Do not say "On you be peace,"
    for "On you be peace" is a greeting for the dead, but say "Peace be
    upon you". I asked: You are the Apostle of Allah (may peace be upon
    you)? He said: I am the Apostle of Allah Whom you call when a
    calamity befalls you and He removes it; when you suffer from drought
    and you call Him, He grows food for you; and when you are in a
    desolate land or in a desert and your she-camel strays and you call
    Him, He returns it to you. I said: Give me some advice.

    He said: Do not abuse anyone. He said that he did not abuse a
    freeman, or a slave, or a camel or a sheep thenceforth.

    He said: Do not look down upon any good work, and when you speak to
    your brother, show him a cheerful face. This is a good work. Have
    your lower garment halfway down your shin; if you cannot do it, have
    it up to the ankles. Beware of trailing the lower garment, for it is
    conceit and Allah does not like conceit. And if a man abuses and
    shames you for something which he finds in you, then do not shame him
    for something which you find in him; he will bear the evil
    consequences for it.

    (Abu Dawood)

    "I put my trust in Allah, my Lord and your Lord! There is not a moving creature, but He has a grasp of its forelock. Verily, my Lord is on the straight path. (The truth)"
