He prescribed me with seven

Reference: Siyar A’laam an-Nubalaa – Volume 2, Page 46

Abu Dharr (radhi-yAllaahu ‘anhu) said:

My close friend [Muhammad] ﷺ prescribed me with [the following] seven:

1) That I love the poor, and remain close to them;

2) That I look at those [in society] who are less privileged than me;

3) That I do not ask (beg) anyone for anything;

4) That I maintain kinship ties, even if they (relatives) turn away (don’t want to maintain ties);

5) That I speak the truth, even if it is bitter;

6) That I do not fear, for the sake of Allaah, the blame of the blamers;

7) That I frequently say:

« لا حول و لا قوة إلا بالله »

«There is no might nor power except with Allaah»

…for indeed it is from the treasure below the ‘Arsh [of Allaah].
