The Prophet (saw) said: “Be aware of sitting in the street. The companions said: ‘Messenger of Allah, we have no other choice but to sit there and engage in conversation there.’ The Prophet (saw) said:’ If you must sit there, then give the street its rights.’ They asked:’  What are its rights.’ He said:’ Lowering the gaze, refraining from causing annoyance, returning the greeting, enjoining what is good, and forbidding what is evil.’” (Bukhari, Muslim Abu Dawud and Ahmad)

Allah (swt) said: “Thinking well of people is part of worshipping properly.” (Abu Daud) 

All human beings have been created with a natural inclination to do good, even though there is some inclination to do evil due to the whispers of Satan. Allah (swt) said: “(Adhere to) the fitrah of Allah with which He has created all people. No change should there be in the creation of Allah.” (Ar-Rum: 30)

Abdullah bin Abbas (may Allah be pleased with him) said, “One day, I was behind the Prophet (s.a.w.), who said: ‘O boy, I shall teach you some words. Preserve Allah and Allah will preserve you. Preserve Allah and you will find Him with you. If you ask, ask Allah. If you seek help, seek the help of Allah…” (At-Timidhi) 

The above hadith tells us that one should preserve his covenant with Allah and pay attention to His rights, commands and prohibitions. One should adhere to the commands of Allah, avoid prohibited acts and never transgress the duties ordained by Him, or perform a deed which He prohibited. Whoever follows this is among those who preserve their covenant with Allah.
