What is Ihsan according to hadith?
Ihsan (or Ehsan or Ahsan or احسان) is an Arabic term meaning "perfection" or "excellence." In Islam, Ihsan is the Muslim responsibility to obtain perfection, or excellence, in worship, such that Muslims try to worship God (Arabic Allah) as if they see Him, and although they cannot see Him, they undoubtedly believe he is constantly watching over them. That definition comes from the hadith (known as the Hadith of Gabriel) in which Muhammad states, "[Ihsan is] to worship God as though you see Him, and if you cannot see Him, then indeed He sees you." (Al-Bukhari and Al-Muslim). Ihsan is one of the Three Principles of the Islamic faith (Islam, Iman and Ihsan) and means "to do beautiful things". In contrast to the emphases of islam (what one should do) and iman(why one should do), the concept of ihsan is primarily associated with intention. One who "does what is beautiful" is labelled muhsin. It is generally held that a person can only achieve true ihsan with the help and guidance of Allah, who governs all things. Ibadah (worship) is one embodiment of ihsan. The concept of Ihsan has been understood differently by various Islamic scholars. For example, some scholars explain Ihsan as being the "inner-dimension" of Islam whereas shariah is often described as the "outer-dimension". Ihsan is excellence in worship, work, and in social interactions. For example, ihsan includes sincerity during Muslim prayers and being grateful to parents, family, and God. Hi Ihsan

Answer 1 The most important four books are: . Sahih Al-Bukhari . Sahih Muslim . Sunan Abu-Dawud . Malik's Muwatta The most famous of them is Sahih Al-Bukhari Answer 2 Shi'a Muslims do not use the six major hadith collections followed by the Sunni, as they do not trust many of the… Sunni narrators and transmitters. They have their own extensive hadith literature. The best-known hadith collections are The Four Books, which were compiled by three authors who are known as the 'Three Muhammads'. The Four Books are: Kitab al-Kafi by Muhammad ibn Ya'qub al-Kulayni al-Razi (329 AH), Man la yahduruhu al-Faqih by Muhammad ibn Babuya and Al-Tahdhib and Al-Istibsar both by Shaykh Muhammad Tusi. Shi'a clerics also make use of extensive collections and commentaries by later authors. ( Full Answer )
1. Revelation The Prophet's(sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) sayings and actions were primarily based on revelation from Allah and, as such, must be considered a fundamental source of guidance second only to the Qur'an. Allah in the Qur'an said concerning the Prophet: Your companion [Muhammad] has n…ot strayed, nor has he erred, Nor does he speak from [his own] inclination. (Qur'an 53:2-3) Therefore, the hadith represents a personal source of divine guidance which Allah granted his prophet which was similar in its nature to the Qur'an itself. The prophet reiterated this point in one of his recorded statements "Indeed, I was given the Qur'an and something similar to it along with it" 2. Tafseer The preservation of the Qur'an was not restricted to protecting its wording from change. Were that the case, its meanings could be manipulated according to human desires, while maintaining its wording. However, Allah also protected its essential meanings from change by entrusting the explanation of the meanings of the Qur'an to the prophet himself. Allah states the following in the Qur'an regarding its interpretation: "â¦. And We revealed to you the message that you may make clear to the people what was sent down to them and that they might give thought."(Qur'an 16:44) Therefore, if one is to understand the meanings of the Qur'an, he or she must consider what the prophet said or did regarding it. For example, In the Qur'an Allah instructs the believers to offer salaah and pay the zakaah. However, in order to obey these instructions correctly, one must study the methodology of the prophet in this regard. Among his many clarifications concerning salaah and zakaah, he instructed his followers saying "pray as you see me pray", and he specified that 2.5% of surplus wealth, unused for a year, should be given as zakaah. 3. Laws One of the primary duties of the prophet was to judge between people in their disputes. Since his judgements were all based on revelation, as stated above, they must be considered a primary source of principles by which judgements are carried out in an Islamic state. Allah also addressed this responsibility in the Qur'an saying: "O you who have believed, obey Allah and obey the Messenger and those in authority among you. And if you disagree over anything, refer it to Allah and the Messenger, if you should believe in Allah and the Last Day. That is the best [way] and best in result." Thus, hadiths are essential for the smooth running of the law courts in an Islamic state. 4. Moral Ideal Since the prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) was guided by revelation in his personal life, his character and social interactions became prime examples of moral conduct for Muslims until the last day. Attention was drawn to this fact in the following ayah: "Indeed in the Messenger of Allah you have a good example to follow for him who hopes in (the Meeting with) Allah and the Last Day and remembers Allah much"(Qur'an 33:21) Consequently, the daily life of the prophet as recorded in the hadith represents an ideal code of good conduct. In fact, when the prophet's wife, Aa'isha was asked about his conduct, she replied, "His character was the Qur'an" 5. Preservation of Islam The sciences of narration, collection and verification of hadith was unknown to the world prior to the era of the prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam). In fact, it was due in part to the absence of such reliable science that the messages of former prophets became lost or distorted in the generations that followed them. Therefore, it may be said that it is largely due to the science of hadith that the final message of Islam has been preserved in its original purity for all times. This is alluded in the Qur'an; "Indeed, i have revealed the reminder, and indeed i will protect it" (Qur'an 15:9) Taken from Bilal Philips' book Usool Al-Hadith ( Full Answer )
Answer 1 The Quran and Hadith are most important two sources of the Islamic law (or Shariaa). Quran is the Muslims holy book that reflects real Allah (or God and same God worshiped in Christianity and Judaism) words revelation to prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) through the angel Jibril (or… Gabriel).

Shaykh Muhammad ibn Saalih al-'Uthaymeen (may Allaah have mercy on him) was asked about the ruling on giving zakaat al-fitr to poor relatives. He replied: It is permissible to give zakaat al-fitr and the zakaah of one's wealth to poor relatives, and indeed giving it to relatives is better than gi…ving it to strangers, because giving it to relatives is both charity and upholding the ties of kinship. But that is subject to the condition that by giving it he is not protecting his wealth, which would be the case if the poor person is one on whom he is obliged to spend. In that case it is not permissible for him to meet the other person's needs with any of his zakaah, because if he does that then he is saving his wealth with what he gives of zakaah, and that is not permissible or allowed. But if he is not obliged to spend on him, then he may give his zakaah to him, and in fact giving his zakaah to him is better than giving it to a stranger, because the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: "Your charity given to a relative is both charity and upholding the ties of kinship."
