Anas ibn Maalik said:

“The main advice of the Messenger of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, when he was passing away and while his soul was leaving him was: ‘Guard your prayer, and fear Allah regarding what your right hand possesses.’”

As-Sindi (a scholar) said: “His statement, “Guard your prayer,” means to keep dutiful to your prayer, give it its due importance, and do not neglect them. 

When he, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, said: “and fear Allah regarding what your right hand possesses,” it was an admonishment in reference to slaves, both male and female. It is saying: ‘Give their right and be kind to those under your authority.”

Ali ibn Abu Taalib (a Companion and the fourth Caliph) said:

“The last words of the Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, were: ‘Guard your prayer, guard your prayer; fear Allah The Almighty with regard to what your right hand possesses.’”

Al-’Atheem Abaadi (a scholar) said about the term “Fear Allah The Almighty with regard to what your right hand possesses”, “He, sallallaa hu ‘alayhi wa sallam, meant slaves, and it (the right of the slaves) was coupled with prayer to show that caring for their needs, such as clothing and food, is obligatory just as prayer is obligatory, and there is no way that an individual can abandon this obligation.
