Abu Hurairah (ra) said: The Messenger of Allaah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) said: "Prayer is the best affair so whoever is able to increase in it then let him increase in it."[21]

Abu Hurairah also said: The Messenger of Allaah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) passed by a grave and said: "Who is the companion of this grave?" They said: So and so. So he said: "Two rakah are more loved by him than what remains in your world."[22]

[2] Reported by Muslim and others.
[3] Reported by al-Bazzaar and at-Tabaraanee in [al-Awsat] and [al-Kabeer] with a faultless isnaad.
[4] Meaning: You will be destroyed due to the many sins you commit.
[5] Reported by at-Tabaraanee in [as-Sagheer] and others.
[6] Reported by at-Tabaraanee in [al-Awsat] and [as-Sagheer].
[7] Reported by at-Tabaraanee in [al-Kabeer].
[8] Reported by at-Tabaraanee in [al-Kabeer] and their is no fault in its isnaad which is Mawqoof (traced back to a companion only).
[9] Reported by al-Bazzaar, Ibn Khuzaimah and Ibn Hibbaan. The wording is that of Ibn Hibbaan.
[10] Surah Hud 11:114
[11] Reported by Ahmad, an-Nasaaee and at-Tabaraanee. This verse was revealed when a man kissed a woman and then came to the Messenger (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) and mentioned it to him. Then the verse: Establish the prayer at the two ends of the day and at the approaches of the night. Indeed the good deeds remove the evil deeds. This is the reminder for those who remember. The man then said. Is this for me (i.e. forgiveness)? The Messenger (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) said: To whoever acts upon this verse from my Ummah.
[12] Reported by Muslim
[13] Reported by Ahmad with a Hasan isnaad.
[14] Reported by Ahmad with a Hasan isnaad, Maalik and an-Nasaaee and the wording is that of Maalik.
[15] The author did not provide a referefence for this hadeeth [Translator's note].
[16] Reported by at-Tabaraanee in [al-Kabeer] and al-Bayhaqee in his [Sunan]. It is also in [Saheeh ul-Jaami'], no. 1671.
[17] Reported by al-Haakim and he said: It is Saheeh with the condition of the two shaiks (i.e. Bukhaaree and Muslim). There is no fault with it except that Abu Bilaal, one of the narrators used to forget sometimes. Ibn Hibbaan also reported it in his [Saheeh] but through a narrator other than Abu Bilaal. See [Saheeh ut-Targheeb wat-Tarheeb], no. 375.
[18] Reported by Muslim and others
[19] Reported by Ahmad with a Hasan isnaad.
[20] Reported by Muslim and others and the wording is that of Muslim.
[21] Reported by at-Tabaraanee in [al-Awsat]. Shaikh al-Albaanee said: It has supporting witnesses which make it strong. At- Tayaaleesee, Ahmad and al-Haakim brought it with two isnaads from Abu Dharr and Ahmad and others from the hadeeth of Abu Umaamah. So the hadeeth is Hasan inshaa'allaah.
[22] Reported by at-Tabaraanee in [al-Awsat] with a Hasan isnaad. Another hadeeth which is worthy of being mentioned in this chapter is what has been reported from by Bukhaaree (The Book of Hearlt-Melting Traditions) from Aby Hurairah in part of a long hadeeth in which he (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) said: "... When Allaah has finished the Judgement between His servants and intends to take out from the fire whomever He wishes to take out from among those who used to testify that there is nothing deserving of worship except Allaah alone, He will order the angels to take them out. The angels will recognise them by the marks of prostration (on their foreheads) for Allaah forbade the Fire to consume the traces of prostration on the bodies of the Sons of Aadam. They will take them out and by then they will have been burnt to coal. Then water, known as the 'water of life' will be poured upon them and they will spring out like a seed springs out on the bank of a river stream." [Translator's note]
