Words of the Prophet Muhammad by MAULANA WAHIDUDDINKHAN
WORDS OF THE PROPHET MUHAMMAD
The present volume is an anthology compiled from the Hadith literature, an Islamic source second only to the Qur’an in religious importance. Although brief, it covers, directly or indirectly, the more important aspects of the Hadith’s teachings.
The sayings of the Prophet Muhammad, may peace be upon him, have been handed down to posterity through both oral and written traditions, the foundations of which were laid by the Prophet’s Companions, some of whom were also his scribes.
The following are some of the principles by which he sought to guide his followers. Eternal in essence, they are of value not only to Muslims, but to humanity at large.
A man without trust is a man without faith.
And a man who does not fulfill his promises is a man without faith. HADITH OF AHMAD IBN HANBAL ON THE AUTHORITY OF ANAS IBN MALIK

God loves those believers who labour to earn a living through lawful means. HADITH OF AT-TABARANI ON THE AUTHORITY OF ‘ABDULLAH IBN ‘UMAR.
According to Mu’adh ibn Jabal, when the Prophet appointed him governor of Yemen, he said, ‘Abstain from luxuries, for those who live luxurious lives are no servants of God.’ HADITH OF AHMAD IBN HANBAL.
A man who acquires a stretch of land by tyranny will be made to wear a yoke made of seven earths around his neck on the Day of Judgement. HADITH OF AL-BUKHARI AND MUSLIM ON THE AUTHORITY OF SA’ID IBN ZAYD.
