*The proof that whoever has intention of taking the money of another unjustly, his blood become permitted for the pursued, and if he was killed, he will be rewarded with hell, and that he who is killed while defending his property is a martyr*

Hadith: 85

عن عبد الله بن عمرو، قال سمعت النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم يقول: [من قتل دون ماله فهو شهيد].

It is reported by Abdullah bin 'Amr bin Al-'As (May Allah be pleased with them): [The Messenger of Allah(peace be upon him) said: He who is killed while defending his property is a martyr]. (Recorded by Al-bukhaari,3/136, and Muslim,1/124).

* The deservedness of the dishonest ruler upon his peoples *

Hadith: 86

عن معقل بن يسار، أن عبيد الله بن زياد عاده في مرضه الذي مات فيه، فقال له معقل إني محدثك حديثا سمعته من رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم، سمعت النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم يقول: [ما من عبد استرعاه الله رعية فلم يحطها بنصيحة إلا لم يجد رائحة الجنة].

It is reported by Ma'qil bin Yasaar that Ubaidullah bin Ziyad visited him in his illness, in which he died, and said: I will inform you about a Hadith I heard from the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him). I heard the Prophet(peace be upon him) saying: [Any man who Allah has given the authority of ruling on some people and he does not look after them in an honest manner, will never smell the fragrance of Paradise]. (Recorded by Al-Bukhaari,9/64).

* Disappearance of Trust and Eeman from some peoples' Heart, and the befall of afflictions on some Hearts*

Hadith: 87

عن حذيفة قال: [حدثنا رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم حديثين، رأيت أحدهما، وأنا أنتظر الآخر حدثنا أن الأمانة نزلت في جذر قلوب الرجال، ثم علموا من القرآن ثم علموا من السنة وحدثنا عن رفعها قال: ينام الرجل النومة فتقبض الأمانة من قلبه، فيظل أثرها مثل أثر الوكت، ثم ينام النومة فتقبض، فيبقى أثرها مثل المجل كجمر دحرجته على رجلك، فنفط فتراه منتبرا وليس فيه شيء، فيصبح الناس يتبايعون فلا يكاد أحد يؤدي الأمانة، فيقال إن في بني فلان رجلا أمينا؛ ويقال للرجل ما أعقله وما أظرفه وما أجلده وما في قلبه مثقال حبة خردل من إيمان]. " ولقد أتى علي زمان وما أبالي أيكم بايعت؛ لئن كان مسلما رده علي الإسلام، وإن كان نصرانيا رده علي ساعيه، فأما اليوم، فما كنت أبايع إلا فلانا وفلانا".

It was narrated by Hudhaifah (may Allah be pleased with him) who said: [Allah's Messenger (peace be upon him) related to us two narrations one of which I have seen fulfilled and I am waiting for the fulfillment of the other. The Prophet (peace be upon him)  told us that the virtue of honesty descended into the roots of men's hearts (from Allah) and then they learned it from the Qur'an and then they learned it from the Sunna (the Prophet's traditions). The Prophet (peace be upon him)  further told us how that honesty will be taken away: He said: "A Man will go to sleep during which honesty will be taken away from his heart and only its trace will remain in his heart like the trace of a dark spot; then, a man will go to sleep, during which honesty will decrease, so that its trace will resemble the trace of blister as when an ember is dropped on one's foot which would make it swell, and one would see it swollen but there would be nothing inside. People would be carrying out their trade but hardly will there be a trustworthy person until it will be said: In such-and-such tribe there is an honest man,' and until a man will be admired for his strength, intelligence, and good manners, although indeed he will not have faith equal to a mustard seed in his heart]. "No doubt, there came upon me a time when I did not mind dealing (bargaining) with anyone of you, for if he is a Muslim his Islam would compel him to pay me what is due to me, and if he is a Christian, the Muslim ruler would compel him to pay me what is due to me, but today I do not deal except with such-and-such persons". (Recorded by Al-Bukhaari,8/104).

* Clarifying that Islam started as something strange, and will return to being something strange, and it will retreat between the two Masajid*

Hadith: 88

عن حذيفة، قال: [كنا جلوسا عند عمر رضي الله عنه فقال: أيكم يحفظ قول رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم في الفتنة قلت: أنا كما قاله، قال: إنك عليه أو عليها لجريء؛ قلت فتنة الرجل في أهله وماله وولده وجاره تكفرها الصلاة والصوم والصدقة والأمر والنهي، قال: ليس هذا أريد ولكن الفتنة التي تموج كما يموج البحر، قال: ليس عليك منها بأس يا أمير المؤمنين، إن بينك وبينها بابا مغلقا، قال: أيكسر أم يفتح قال: يكسر، قال: إذا لا يغلق أبدا]. قلنا: "أكان عمر يعلم الباب قال نعم، كما أن دون الغد الليلة، إني حدثته بحديث ليس بالأغاليط. فهبنا أن نسأل حذيفة، فأمرنا مسروقا فسأله؛ فقال: الباب عمر".

It was narrated that Hudhaifah (may Allah be pleased with him) said: [We were sitting with Umar (may Allah be pleased with him) and he said: ‘Which one of you remember a Hadith from the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) concerning Fitnah?’” Hudhaifah said: “I said: ‘I have.’ He said: ‘You are very bold.’ He said: ‘How?’ He said: ‘I heard him say: “The fitnah of a man with regards to his family, his children and his neighbors are expiated by his prayers, fasts, charity and enjoining what is good and forbidding what is evil.” ‘Umar said: ‘This is not what I meant, rather I mean that which moves like the waves of the sea.’” Hudhaifah said: “Don’t worry about it, O Commander of the Believers! For there is a closed door between you and that.” ‘Umar said: “Will that door be broken or opened?” I said: “No, it will be broken.” ‘Umar said: “Then it will never be closed]. "We asked Hudhaifah: “Did ‘Umar knew what that door meant?” He said: "Yes, just as he knew that there will be night before morning, because I narrated to him a Hadith in which there are no errors. We were afraid to ask him who the door was, so we said to Masruq: “Ask him." He said: “‘Umar". (Recorded by Al-Bukhaari,1/111).

Hadith: 89

عن أبي هريرة رضي الله عنه، أن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم، قال: [إن الإيمان ليأرز إلى المدينة كما تأرز الحية إلى جحرها].

It is narrated on the authority of Abu Hurairah(may Allah be pleased with him) that the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said: [Verily the Faith(Eeman) would recede to Madinah just as the snake recede back into its hole]. (Recorded by Al-Bukhaari,3/21, and Muslim,1/131).

In conclusion, we can learn from the above Ahadith, the following lessons:

1. The reward of defending against one's property.

2. The great crime of a person who has been given the responsibility of ruling over people and he does not look after them in a sincere manner.

3. Trust will be taken away at the end of the time, and it would be rear to see a trustworthy person at that time.

4. Tribulations that will appear at the end of the time which would be moved like the waves of the sea and it would not be raised till the day of resurrection.

5. Virtues of Madinah, and that Iman (Belief) returns and goes back to it at the end of the time.
