Best Manners

Al-Mujaahid said:

“The first seven to publicly declare their Islam in Makkah were: the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), Abu Bakr, Bilaal, Khabbaab, Suhayb, ‘Ammaar and Sumaya. The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) and Abu Bakr were protected by their own people, but the others were forced to wear iron shields then were exposed to the burning sun. Abu Jahl came to Sumaya and stabbed her in her private parts, killing her.” This was reported by Abu Bakr ibn Abi Shaybah from Mujaahid; it is mursal and its isnaad is saheeh.

Ibn Sa’d reported with a saheeh isnaad from Mujaahid: “The first martyr in Islam was Sumayah, the mother of ‘Ammaar ibn Yaasir. She was an old, weak woman (according to a report narrated by al-Bayhaqi: Abu Jahl stabbed her in her private parts. Al-Dalaa’il, 2/282). When Abu Jahl was killed on the day of Badr, the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said (to ‘Ammaar): ‘Allaah has killed the one who killed your mother.’” (al-Isaabah, 4/327; al-Bidaayah wa’l-Nihaayah by Ibn Katheer, 3/59).

Spending on family

“There is nothing equivalent in reward to earning money to spend on your family, not even jihaad for the sake of Allaah.”

“Let the rich man spend according to his means, and the man whose resources are restricted, let him spend according to what Allaah has given him..”

“No matter what you spend on your family, you will be rewarded, even for the morsel of food you put in your wife’s mouth.”

“If a Muslim spends on his wife, and hopes for reward from Allaah, it will be counted as sadaqah (charity) on his part.”
