  • "Verily, those who believed, and emigrated and strove hard and fought with their property and their lives in the Cause of Allaah as well as those who gave (them) asylum and help, - these are (all) allies to one another, And as to those who believed but did not emigrate (to you O Muhammad sal-Allaahu 'alayhe wa sallam), you owe no duty of protection to them until they emigrate, but if they seek your help in religion, it is your duty to help them except against a people with whom you have a treaty of mutual alliance, and Allaah is the All- Seer of what you do." [Al-Anfaal (8):72]

  • 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]
