English Translation of Hadith 

Hazrat Anas (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: Three men came to the houses of the wives of the Messenger of Allah  [SAWW](PBUH) to inquire about the worship of The Messenger of Allah  [SAWW](PBUH). When they were informed, they considered their worship insignificant and said: “Where are we in comparison with The Messenger of Allah  [SAWW](PBUH) while Allah has forgiven his past sins and future sins”. One of them said: “As for me, I shall offer Salat all night long.” Another said: “I shall observe Saum (fasting) continuously and shall not break it”. Another said: “I shall abstain from women and shall never marry”. The Messenger of Allah  [SAWW](PBUH) came to them and said, “Are you the people who said such and such things? By Allah, I fear Allah more than you do, and I am most obedient and dutiful among you to Him, but still I observe fast and break it; perform Salat and sleep at night and get married and take wives. So whoever turns away from my Sunnah does not belong to me”.
