HADITH (Traditions of the Prophet Muhammad Peace be Upon Him)

Abu Umamah bin Tha`labah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Companions of Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) mentioned the life of the world before him. He (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) said, "Do you not hear? Do you not hear? Simplicity (in life) is part of Faith, simplicity is part of Faith.'' [Abu Dawud]

Commentary: This Hadith invites our attention to a simple way of living - ordinary dress and simple and non-rich food - and discourages us from being habitual of an affected life style - use of costly dress, delicious and rich food and other dainties of life. The more a man shuns the trappings and accessories of life, the better engaged will he be in being readied for the Hereafter. The increased degree of his involvement in worldly comforts and luxuries will keep decreasing his concern for the accountability of future life. We may keep it in mind that simplicity does not mean escape from cleanliness. Because cleanliness is in itself `half the Faith'. How can a believer ignore purity and cleanliness?
