Hadith No. 11 – Sahih al-Bukhari



Do you cook? The answer will definitely be a ‘yes’ after reading this Hadith. =)

Volume 1, Book 2, Number 11:

Narrated ‘Abdullah bin ‘Amr:

A man asked the Prophet (SAW), “What sort of deeds or (what qualities of) Islam are good?” The Prophet replied, ‘To feed (people) and greet those whom you know and those whom you do not know’.

Two things: feeding others + saying Salam.

Now if you can’t cook anything, you can get your name in this list by helping in cooking/setting the dining table etc.

Salam is ‘Assalamu ‘alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuhu’: Peace and Allah’s Mercy + blessings be upon you.

It’s a dua for the person you’re passing by or going to talk to. What do you get? 30 hasanaat (good deeds).

If you say ‘Assalamu ‘alaykum wa rahmatullah’, you get 20 hasanaat.

And if you say ‘Assalamu ‘alaykum’, you get 10 hasanaat.

So it’s your choice.

I’m off to make popcorn for my sister. What’s cookin’ at your end? :)

    Yumna i would like to share my experience with you, IA will be a sadqa jaria.
    Being here in hostel of NUST H-12 isb, I am trying to make alive the sunnah of “SALAM” and alhmdulilah its going great. I adopt the same stategy of “SALAM & SMILE” as in alhuda :)
    Alhmdulilah people respond really positively Sometimes you dont even get an answer, sometimes just a smile, sometimes a nod, but YES a proper smile & answer too :D
    I have noticed now that people have started to take SABQAT in salam, they do it even before I do!!!
