(5970) Al-Birr (piety, righteousness), and As-Sila (good relations)
Narrated Al-Walid bin 'Aizar: I heard Abi `Amr 'Ash-Shaibani saying, The owner of this house. he pointed to `Abdullah's house, said, 'I asked the Prophet 'Which deed is loved most by Allah? He replied, 'To offer prayers at their early (very first) stated times.' `Abdullah asked, What is the next (in goodness)? The Prophet said, To be good and dutiful to one's parents, `Abdullah asked, What is the next (in goodness)? The Prophet said, To participate in Jihad for Allah's Cause. `Abdullah added, The Prophet narrated to me these three things, and if I had asked more, he would have told me more.
