"Allah created mercy in one hundred parts and He retained with Him ninety-nine parts, and He has sent down upon the earth one part, and it is because of this one part that there is mutual love among the creation so much so that the animal lifts up its hoof from its young, one, fearing that it might harm it." [Sahih Muslim : Book 37 Kitab Al-Tauba, Number 6634] Salman (Radi Allah Anhu) reported that Allah's Messenger (salallahu- alleihi-wasallam ) said: "Verily, Allah created, on the same very day when He created the heavens and the earth, one hundred parts of mercy.

Later a few silken cloaks were given to the Prophet (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) as a gift, and he sent one of those cloaks to 'Umar. 'Umar said (to the Prophet (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam)), "How can I wear it while you have said about it what you said?" The Prophet (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) said, "I did not give it to you to wear but to sell or to give to someone else to wear." So 'Umar sent it to his (pagan) brother who was from the inhabitants of Mecca before he

('Umar's brother) embraced Islam.

certainty that gave them the vision to comprehend the light of all the faiths of the world. -Abu'I-Hasan, "The Kashf al-Mahjub" (TREE AS CHARITY) When one of you plants a tree, the fruits of which all creatures enjoy, let it be written as charity. -The Prophet Muhammad, as reported by Anas bin Malik

(TREATMENT TO NON-MUSLIMS) Prophet Muhammad said, "He who unfairly treats a non-Muslim who keeps a peace treaty with Muslims, or undermines his rights, or burdens him beyond his capacity, or takes something from him without his consent; then I am his opponent on the Day of Judgment" [Abu Dawud and Al-Bayhaqi] (PEACE TREATY) The Prophet also said, "He who harms a non-Muslim who keeps a peace treaty with Muslims has harmed me, and he who harms me has harmed Allah" [At-Tabarani in Al-Awsat] (PEACE TREATY) And he said, "He who kills a non-Muslim who keeps a peace treaty with the Muslims will not smell the scent of Heaven, though its scent can be traced to as far as a march of 40 years" [Imam Ahmad and Al-Bukhari in Al-Jizyah] (COMPENSATION 4 NON-MUSLIM) Where alcoholic drinks and pork cannot be considered as money to Muslims, if a Muslim squanders or spoils such property of another Muslim, he could NOT be called upon for compensation. Yet if a Muslim spoils such assets belonging to a non-Muslim, he would be responsible for compensation. [Imam Abu Hanifah] (GREAT TREATMENT OF MUSLIMS TO NON-MUSLIMS)

Caliph Umar ibn Al-Khattab was reported to have seen a senile Jewish man asking for alms, and hence took him to the treasury and authorized a monthly pension for him and the likes of him. Non-Muslims were permitted to build their own houses of worship under Muslim rule. Two examples of early Islam are the construction of the Mar Marcus Church in Alexandria (between AH 39 and 56), and the construction of the first church in Fustat in the Roman Alley during the reign of Maslamah ibn Mikhled (between the years AH 47 and 68). The historian Al-Maqrizi once said, "All modern day Cairo churches were undoubtedly restored in Islam." Imam Al-Mawardi authorized Dhimmis to undertake executive ministries rather than delegate ministries. Executive ministers are those who implement and execute the imam's orders. During the Abbasid era, Christians undertook the ministry more than once; for example, Nasr ibn Haroun in AH 369 and Eissa ibn Nastorus in AH 380. Mu`awiyah ibn Abi Sufyan had also appointed a Christian clerk named Sarjoun. "We find it very surprising the abundance of non-Muslim laborers and senior staff within the Muslim state; where Christians governed Muslims in Muslim provinces, and complaints against non-Muslims' seniority in these provinces dates far back" [Adam Mitz, Islamic Civilization in the Fourth Hijri Century, part 1, p. 105]

May Allah Almighty have mercy and guide us all to treating everyone fairly and justly, ameen.

( BAD DOINGS ) Imam Al-Qarafi Al-Maliki once said, "He who transgresses against them

(Dhimmis)-even with a mere word of injustice or backtalk- has jeopardized the covenant with Allah and His Prophet and the covenant of the religion of Islam" [Al-Furuq Part 3, p. 14] ( ABOUT TRUE FAITH) Once a person asked the Prophet of Islam, "What is true faith?" The Prophet replied, "When your good endeavors bring you pleasure and your transgressions cause you anguish, you know that you are a person of faith." -Reported by Abu Umamah (GOOD DEEDS) A believer through his good deeds reaches the position of one who worships all night and fasts during the day. -The Prophet Muhammad, as reported by A'ishah bint Abi Bakr (EVIL ACTIONS) Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet said, "Whoever does not give up forged speech and evil actions, Allah is not in need of his leaving his food and drink (i.e. Allah will not accept his fasting.)" [Sahih Bukhari Volume 3, Book 31 - Number 127]

(FASTING) Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: "Fasting is a shield and a powerful fortress." -Hadith narrated by Ahmad Volume 1, Book 2, Number 50: Narrated Abu Jamra: I used to sit with Ibn 'Abbas and he made me sit on his sitting place. He requested me to stay with him in order that he might give me a share from his property. So I stayed with him for two months. Once he told (me) that when the delegation of the tribe of 'Abdul Qais came to the Prophet, the Prophet asked them, "Who are the people (i.e. you)? (Or) who are the

delegate?" They replied, "We are from the tribe of Rabi'a." Then the Prophet said to them, "Welcome! O people (or O delegation of 'Abdul Qais)! Neither will you have disgrace nor will you regret." They said, "O Allah's Apostle! We cannot come to you except in the sacred month and there is the infidel tribe of Mudar intervening between you and us. So please order us to do something good (religious deeds) so that we may inform our people whom we have left behind (at home), and that we may enter Paradise (by acting on them)." Then they asked about drinks (what is legal and what is illegal). The Prophet ordered them to do four things and forbade them from four things. He ordered them to believe in Allah Alone and asked them, "Do you know what is meant by believing in Allah Alone?" They replied, "Allah and His Apostle know better." Thereupon the Prophet said, "It means: 1. To testify that none has the right to be worshipped but Allah and Muhammad is Allah's Apostle. 2. To offer prayers perfectly 3. To pay the Zakat (obligatory charity) 4. To observe fast during the month of Ramadan. 5. And to pay Al-Khumus (one fifth of the booty to be given in Allah's Cause). Then he forbade them four things, namely, Hantam, Dubba,' Naqir Ann Muzaffat or Muqaiyar; (These were the names of pots in which Alcoholic drinks were prepared) (The Prophet mentioned the container of wine and he meant the wine itself). The Prophet further said (to them): "Memorize them (these instructions) and convey them to the people whom you have left behind." (NEXT WORLD) "This world is the cultivation field of the next world. As you sow in this world, so you will reap in the next." (BEST OF PEOPLE & WORST OF PEOPLE) Similarly the Prophet (Pbuh) said that the best of people are those who are slow to get angry and quick to forgive. On the other hand the worst of people are those, he said who get angry quickly but are slow to forgive. (PURITY OF HIS OR HER HEART) The characteristic that makes a person most likely to forgive is the purity of his or her heart. Apologies must be accepted,

(APOLOGY) the Prophet (Pbuh) said that: "Whoever apologises to his brother and that apology is not accepted, then the person who refuses to accept the apology bears the sin of one who takes the property of another unjustly. (JUSTICE) The Prophet (Pbuh) once asked his companions; "Do you know what will cause you to have high walled palaces in Paradise (as a symbol of great reward) and will cause you to be raised by God?" When they replied in the negative, he said, "To be forgiving and to control yourself in the face of provocation, to give justice to the person who was unfair and unjust to you, to give to someone even though he did not give to you when you were in need and to keep connection with someone who may not have reciprocated your concern." Volume 1, Book 2, Number 30: Narrated Al-Ahnaf bin Qais: While I was going to help this man ('Ali Ibn Abi Talib), Abu Bakra met me and asked, "Where are you going?" I replied, "I am going to help that person." He said, "Go back for I have heard Allah's Apostle saying, 'When two Muslims fight (meet) each other with their swords, both the murderer as well as the murdered will go to the Hell-fire.' I said, 'O Allah's Apostle! It is all right for the murderer but what about the murdered one?' Allah's Apostle replied, "He surely had the intention to kill his companion."
