Sayyiduna Tamim Ad Dari (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“Din is to wish well. We asked, ‘For whom’? [Nabi sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam] replied: ‘For Allah, His Book, His Messenger and for the leaders and the common Muslims”

(Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 55)


‘Allamah Nawawi (rahimahullah) states that this Hadith encompasses all of Din and it is therefore the most fundamental Hadith of Rsaulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam). The entire Din is encapsulated in this short concise Hadith.
