Jawal Zad SMS 2

6) The Prophet ( peace be upon him ) said : " The Holy Spirit ( Jibreel ) has revealed to me that no soul will die until it has completed its appointed term and received its provision in full, so fear Allah and do not be desperate in seeking provision, and no one of you should be tempted to seek provision by means of committing sin if it is slow in coming to him, for that which is with Allah can only be attained by obeying Him. "

7) Via Anas : Zayd ibn Thabit said :" We ate suhoor with the Prophet ( peace be upon him ), then he stood up to pray. " I [ Anas ] said : " How long was there between the adhan and suhoor ". He said : " As long as it takes to recite fifty verses. " From this hadeeth we understand that it is mustahabb to delay suhoor. Our scholars are agreed that suhoor is Sunnah, and that delaying it is preferable. Moreover the time for fasting is the day. So there is no sense in delaying iftaar, or refraining from eating suhoor at the end of the night.

8) While the Prophet ( peace be upon him ) was sitting, a man came in and prayed and said, " O Allah, forgive me and have mercy on me." The Prophet ( peace be upon him ) said, " You have been too hasty, O worshipper. When you have prayed and are sitting, praise Allah as He deserves to be praised, and send blessings upon me, then call upon Him. " Then another man prayed after that, and he praised Allah and sent blessings upon the Prophet ( peace be upon him ). The Prophet ( peace be upon him ) said : " O worshipper, ask and you will be answered. "

9) The relationship of an engaged man with his fiancée is the same as a man's relationship with any woman to whom he is not related. It is not permissible for him to touch her, shake hands with her, or be alone with her. He is not allowed to enjoy any kind of physical relationship with her whatsoever until the marriage contract with her has been completed.

10) The feet must be washed in wudoo'. It not sufficient to wipe them. From Abu Hurayrah : " The Prophet ( peace be upon him ) saw a man who had not washed his heels and he said, " Woe to the heels from the fire." Ibn Khuzaymah said : If wiping were sufficient to discharge the obligation, there would have been no warning of the Fire in this case.
