Hadhrat Jaabir (Radhiallahu Anhu) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “May Allah Ta’ala show mercy to the one who is kind when he sells, kind when he buys, and kind when he demands payment.
There was a man whose neighbour had a rooster that never stopped crowing. This annoyed him, so one day he sent his servant to purchase the rooster, slaughter it and prepare it for lunch. In the meantime he invited his friends to join him for the meal. As they sat and waited for the meals to be served, the man mentioned to his friends the disturbance the rooster had caused him and now how much of peace he was enjoying. Just then the servant came in with the food. He explained to the master that the neighbor refused to sell the rooster, so he bought one from the market. It was only at this point that the man realized, the rooster was still crowing in the background.

The Laws and Method of Tayammum:
When Hadhrat Umar (Radhiallahu Anhu) became the khalifa, a small amount of wealth was fixed as his daily allowance from the Baytul Maal (with the maswarah (consultation) of the Sahaabah). After some time, some Sahaabah including Hadhrat Ali, Hadhrat Uthmaan, Hadhrat Zubair and Hadhrat Talhah (Radhiallahu Anhum) proposed that the allowance of Hadhrat Umar (Radhiallahu Anhu) should be increased, as it was barely sufficient for his needs. However, each person felt reluctant to present the suggestion to Hadhrat Umar (Radhiallahu Anhu).
On one occassion Ibn Simaak (Rahmatullahi Alaihi) paid a visit to the king of the time. It so happened that when the sheikh (ibn Simaak (Rahmatullahi Alaihi)) greeted him, the king was holding a tumbler of water in his hand. The king said to the sheikh: “Give me a word of advice.” The sheikh said: “Suppose this tumbler of water could only be obtained at the cost of your entire kingdom and you had to choose between dying of t hirst and giving your kingdom away, which one would you prefer?” The king replied: “I would naturally prefer a tumbler of water and part with my entire kingdom.” The sheikh then said: “Then I do not understand why anyone should take joy in a kingdom which is worth only a tumbler of water!” (Fazaail Sadaqaat pg.552)

Hadhrat Abu Hurayrah (Radhiallahu Anhu) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “The sins committed between two Jumuahs, provided it is not major sins, will be forgiven by Allah Ta’ala (upon the performance of the both Jumuahs).
