The Book of Knowledge: Summarized Sahih al Bukhari

Assalammualaikum and good day dear readers and friend, hope you all have been doing fine and always be within the showering of His blessings and love, insya Allah ^^

I came across a large volume of Summarized Sahih al-Bukhari and feel very compelled to share some of the hadiths from the book of knowledge.

1. Narrated Abu Waqid Al-Laithi r.a: While Allah's Messenger s.a.w was sitting in the mosque with some people, three men came. Two of them came in front of Allah's Messenger s.a.w and the third one went away. The narrator added: The two persons kept on standing before Allah's Messenger s.a.w (for awhile) and then one of them found a place in the circle and sat there while the other sat behind them (the gathering), and the third one went away. When Allah's Messenger finished preaching, he said, "shall I tell you about these three persons? One of them betook himself to Allah, so Allah took him into His Grace and Mercy and accommodated him, the second felt shy from Allah, so Allah sheltered him in His Mercy (and did not punish him), while the third turned his face from Allah and went away so Allah azzawajal turned His face from him (likewise)". Sahih Bukhari

2.Narrated Ibn Mas'ud r.a: The Prophet s.a.w used to take care of us in preaching by selecting a suitable time, so that we might not get bored. (He abstained from pestering us with religious talk and knowledge all the time). Sahih Bukhari

3. Anas bin Malik r.a: The Prophet s.a.w said, "Facilitate things to people (concerning religious matters), and do not make it hard for them and give good tidings and do not make them run away (from Islam)." Sahih Bukhari

4. Narrated 'Abdullah bin Mas'ud r.a: The Prophet s.a.w said. "Do not wish to be like anyone except in two cases. The first is a person, whom Allah has given wealth and he spends it righteously (according to what Allah has ordained in a just and right way); (the second is) the one whom Allah has given Al-Hikmah [wisdom i.e the knowledge of the Quran and the Sunna of Prophet s.a.w] and he acts according to it and teaches it to others,". Sahih Bukhari

5. Narrated Abu Mas'ud Al Ansari r.a: Once a man said to Allah's Messenger s.a.w "O Allah's Messenger! I may not attend the (compulsory congregational) Salat because so and so (the Imam) prolongs the Salat when he leads us for it." (The narrator added): I never saw the Prophet s.a.w more furious in giving advice than he was on that day. The Prophet s.a.w said, "O people! Some of you make others dislike good deeds (the Salat). So whoever leads the people in Salat should shorten it because among them there are the sick, the weak and the one who is in a state that requires urgent relief". Sahih Bukhari
