  • "Verily, the number of months with Allaah is twelve months (in a year), so was it ordained by Allaah on the Day when He created the heavens and the earth; of them four are Sacred, (i.e, the 1st, the 7th, the 11th and the 12th months of the Islaamic calendar), That is the right religion, so wrong not yourselves therein, and fight against the Mushrikoon (polytheists, pagans, idolaters, disbelievers in the Oneness of Allaah) collectively, as they fight against you collectively, But know that Allaah is with those who are Al-Muttaqoon (the pious - see (2):2)." [At-Taubah (9):36]

  • Narrated 'Ubada bin As-Samit:

    who took part in the battle of Badr and was a Naqib (a person heading a group of six persons), on the night of Al-'Aqaba pledge: Allah's Apostle said while a group of his companions were around him, "Swear allegiance to me for:
    1. Not to join anything in worship along with Allah.
    2. Not to steal.
    3. Not to commit illegal sexual intercourse.
    4. Not to kill your children.
    5. Not to accuse an innocent person (to spread such an accusation among people).
    6. Not to be disobedient (when ordered) to do good deed."
    The Prophet added: "Whoever among you fulfills his pledge will be rewarded by Allah. And whoever indulges in any one of them (except the ascription of partners to Allah) and gets the punishment in this world, that punishment will be an expiation for that sin. And if one indulges in any of them, and Allah conceals his sin, it is up to Him to forgive or punish him (in the Hereafter)." 'Ubada bin As-Samit added: "So we swore allegiance for these." (points to Allah's Apostle) [The Book of Faith Volume 1, Book 2, Hadeeth 17]
