Narrated Anas bin Malik, may Allah be pleased with him:

"The Messenger of Allah, may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, said to me: 'O my son! If you are capable of (waking up in) the morning and (ending) the evening, while there is nothing of deception in your heart for anything, then do so.' Then he said to me: 'O my son! That is from my Sunnah. Whoever revives my Sunnah then he has loved me. And whoever loved me, he shall be with me in Paradise.'"

Anas bin Malik - may Allah be pleased with him - accompanied the Prophet peace be upon him, he had the honor of serving the Prophet when he was ten years old. Anas, may Allah be pleased with him, was very keen to understand, memorize and apply whatever he hears from the Prophet, may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him.

I admire such a compassionate advice that springs from a kind heart, let us reflect some of the benefit included in this Hadeeth:

1- When the master calls his servant: "My son," this indicates his humbleness .

2- It is a great call of a great man flowing with compassion and vitality, and pours mercy in the hearts so that Anas bin Malik drinks from it and his heart became clear and more resolute for remembering Allah and his faith in Allah and His Messenger increases.

3 – This call deepens the bonds of love so that Anas feels that he is the son of the Prophet, even if he is real his son, yet, he is considered a son in terms of receiving knowledge and faith from the Prophet, may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him.

Please note that cheating has many forms some of them are very obvious whereas others are hidden.

- it may occur in financial transactions therefore it entails greediness, dishonesty and evil manners.

-One may falsely show friendship and intimacy to attain worldly benefits which is a sort of cheating.

- One may show righteousness in front of others so that people consider him pious whereas he is double-sided; he appears to be righteous only when he is in front of righteous people

• cheating may occur in terms of consultation and concealing the advice, Allah warned us severely - in many verses- from the consequences of such a treachery.
