Hadith Explanation


The Most Wicked Theft


Speaking to his Companions one day, the Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) asked when a question on theft was raised, “Which type of theft is worst of all?”

 

The Companions replied, “Allah and His Messenger know better.”

 

Thereupon the Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) told them, “The worst theft is when a person steals from his or her prayer.”

 

The Companions were surprised on hearing this and were curious, “O Rasulullah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam)! How can a person steal from his prayer?”

 

The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) explained, “He steals it by underperforming his Ruku and Sajda, and by neglecting the respect he should show to the Almighty Allah, and by not reciting the Quran wholeheartedly.” [Muwatta, Safar]
