Abu Hurairah (RA) said: "When Allah’s Apostle ﷺ died and Abu Bakr (RA) became the Khalifah after him, then those who had to disbelieve from the Arabs disbelieved, so Umar bin Al-Khattab (RA) said to Abu Bakr (RA) : 'How will you fight the people while Allah’s Apostle ﷺhas said: 'I have been commanded to fight the people until they say La Ilaha Illallah (There is no God but Allah), and if they say that, then they have protected their blood and wealth from me, except what it makes obligatory upon them, and their reckoning is with Allah.?' So Abu Bakr (RA) said: 'By Allah I will fight whoever differentiates between Salah and Zakah. For indeed, Zakah is the right due upon wealth. And by Allah! If they withhold even a (camel’s) rope that they used to give to Allah’s Apostle ﷺ, I will fight them over that.” Umar ibn al-Khattab (RA) said, “It was not, but that I observed that Allah had opened the heart of Abu Bakr ‘(RA) to fight and I knew that he was right.".'"

Yahya bin Ya'mur said: "The first person who speak about Al-Qadar (Divine decree) was Ma'bad Al-Juhani." He said: "Humaid bin Abdur-Rahman Al-Himyari and I went out until we reached Al-Madinah, and we said to ourselves: 'If we could meet someone among the companions of the Prophet ﷺ so we might ask him about the innovation of these people." [He said:] "So (fortunately) we met him - meaning Abdullah bin 'Umar (RA) - while he was leaving the Masjid." [He said:] I and my friend stood by him. I presumed that my friend left me to speak, so I said, “O Abu Abdur Rahman. Certain people recite the Qur’an and acquire knowledge, but are convinced that there is no predestination and they hold that fate is not decreed aforehand. ‘Ibn Umar (RA) said, “When you meet them, let them know that I am absolved of them, and they are absolved of me. By Him on whom Abdullah swears often if they give away gold as much as Uhud, it would not be accepted from them till they believe in destiny, good and bad.”.'" He said: "Then he began to narrate, he said: "'Umar bin Al-Khattab) RA) said: "We were with the Apostle of Allah ﷺ when a man came with extremely white garments, and extremely black hair. He had no appearance of traveling visible on him, yet none of us recognized him. He came until he reached the Prophet ﷺ. He placed his knees up against his knees, and then said: "O Muhammad! What is Iman?' He said 'To believe in Allah, His Angels, His, Books, His Messengers, the Day of Judgment, and Al-Qadar, the good of it and the bad of it.' He said: 'Then what is Islam?' He said: 'Testifying to La Ilaha Illallah, and that Muhammad is His servant and Messenger, establishing the Salat, giving the Zakat, performing Hajj to the House, and fasting (the month of) Ramadan.' He said: 'Then what is Ihsan?' He said 'That (is) you worship Allah as if you see Him, and although you do not see Him, He certainly sees you.' He said: 'For all of those he replied to him: 'You have told the truth.'" He said: "So we were amazed at him, he would ask, and then tell him that he is telling the truth. He said: 'Then when is the Hour?' He ﷺ said: 'The one being asked knows no more than the questioner.' He said: 'Then what are its signs?' He said: 'That the slave woman gives birth to her master, and that the naked, poor, and bare-footed shepherds rival each other in the height of the buildings.'" 'Umar said: 'then the Prophet ﷺ met me three days after that and said: 'O 'Umar! Do you know who the questioner was? It was Jibril. He came to teach you about the matters of your religion.'"

Ibn Abbas (RA) said: "A delegation of (the tribe) Abdul-Qais came to Allah’s Apostle ﷺ and said: 'Indeed this tribe (of us) is from Rabi'ah, and we cannot come to you except during the sacred months. So command us therefore with something that we can take from you, and then we can invite those who are behind us.' So he said: 'I command you with four things: To testify that that there is no God but Allah (La Ilaha Illallah) and I am Allah’s Apostle; to establish the Salah, to give the Zakah, and to pay one-fifth of what as booty you gain.'"

He said: "Because of your cursing so much." - meaning your ungratefulness towards your husbands. He said: "And I have not seen any among those lacking in intellect and religion who are more difficult upon people possessing reason and insight than you." A woman among them said: "And what is the deficiency of her intellect and religion?" He said: "The testimony of two women among you is equal to the testimony of one man, and the deficiency in your religion is menstruation, because one of you will go three or four days without offering Salah."

So, one day I came very close to him while we were traveling so I said: 'O Apostle of Allah! ﷺ tell me about a deed which may enable me to enter the Paradise, and which will keep me far from the Fire.' He said: 'You have asked me about a great thing, but it is easy for whomever Allah makes it easy: Worship Allah and do not associate any partners with Him, establish the Salah, pay the Zakat, fast Ramadan and perform Hajj to the House (Ka’bah).' Then he said: 'Shall I not guide you to the doors of good? Fasting is a shield, and charity extinguishes sins like water extinguishes fire - and a man's Salah in depths of the night.'" He said: "Then he recited: ‘Their sides forsake their beds as they call on their Lord in fear and in hope, and they expend out of what We have provided them. No soul knows what delight of the eyes is kept hidden for them, as a recompense for what they used to do.’ (Al-Quran 32:16-17) Then he said: 'Shall I not inform you about the head of the entire matter, and its pillar, and its hump?' I said: 'Certainly, O Apostle of Allah! ﷺ He said: 'The head of the matter is Islam, and its pillar is the Salah, and its hump is Jihad.' Then he said: 'Shall I not inform you about what governs all of that?' I said: 'Certainly, O Apostle of Allah! ﷺ'" He ﷺ said: "So he got hold of his tongue. He said ‘keep it in check.' I said: 'O Prophet of Allah! ﷺ Will we be held accountable for what we say?' He said: 'May your mother weep at you O Mu'adh! Will people be thrown into the Fire upon their faces, or on their nostrils except as the consequence of their tongues?”
Narrated from Abu Saeed (RA) that Allah’s Apostle ﷺ said: "If you see a man who frequently visits the mosque, then give testimony to his faith for Allah, the Exalted, says: ‘The Mosques of Allah shall be maintained only by those who believe in Allah and the Last Day; perform As-Salah (Iqamat-as-Salat), and give Zakat and fear none but Allah until the end of the Ayah’” (9:18)
