And who is be,er in speech than
one who invites to Allah and
does righteous deeds
and says, "Indeed, I am of the Muslims.”
Ibn Umar reported: The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said,
“The most beloved people to Allah are
those who are most beneﬁcial to the people.
The most beloved deed to Allah is to make a Muslim happy, or to remove
one of his troubles, or to forgive his debt, or to feed his hunger.
That I walk with a brother regarding a need is more beloved to me than
that I seclude myself in this mosque in Medina for a month.
Whoever swallows his anger, then Allah will conceal his faults. Whoever
suppresses his rage, even though he could fulﬁll his anger if he wished,
then Allah will secure his heart on the Day of ResurrecGon.
Whoever walks with his brother regarding a need unGl he secures it for
him, then Allah the Exalted will make his fooGng ﬁrm across the bridge on
the day when the fooGngs are shaken.”
