# No one acted better than the likes of these two characteristics

From of Anas who said that the Messenger of Allaah - sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam – met Abu Dharr, and said to him:  ‘O Abu Dharr Shall I not inform you of two characteristics which are lighter on your back and heavier on the scales than other than them?’ He answered: ‘Of course O Messenger of Allaah.’ He said:  ‘You should have good manners and remain silent for a long time. I swear by He in whose Hand is my soul no one has acted upon better than the likes of these two characteristics.’ [Silsilah ahadeeth a saheehah No. 1938]  Note - the first and foremost of good manners is to give Allaah His right: tawhid. It is impossible to achieve good manners while committing the greatest dhulm (oppression) i.e. shirk.

Allahu Rabbi, la sharika lah

# Great Reward of Looking after a Widow or a Poor Person

The one who looks after a widow or a poor person

On the authority of Abu Hurrairah (radiallaahu ‘anhu): The Prophet (salallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) said:

The one who looks after a widow or a poor person is like a Mujaahid (fighter) who fights for Allaah’s cause, or like him who performs prayers all the night and fasts all the day.
