Hadith on Manners: The Prophet’s seven prohibitions and seven commands

July 28, 2013

Al-Bara ibn Azib reported: The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, prohibited us from seven things: using gold rings, silk, flax, brocade, red saddle clothes, tafetta, and silver vessels. And the Prophet commanded us to do seven things: to visit the sick, to follow the funeral procession, to bless those who sneeze, to return the greeting of peace, to accept invitations, to help others fulfill their oaths, and to support the oppressed.
