in response to reader comment: Mohamad Nozzi: You believe Allah is merciful. But the Koranic picture is of a jealous and sadistic deity

Sahih Bukhari, Book #2, Hadith #11, "Narrated 'Abdullah bin 'Amr: A man asked the Prophet , "What sort of deeds or (what qualities of) Islam are good?" The Prophet replied, 'TO FEED (THE POOR) and GREET THOSE WHOM YOU KNOW AND THOSE WHOM YOU DO NOT KNOW (See Hadith No. 27)."

Sahih Bukhari, Book #2, Hadith #17, "Narrated 'Ubada bin As-Samit: who took part in the battle of Badr and was a Naqib (a person heading a group of six persons), on the night of Al-'Aqaba pledge: Allah's Apostle said while a group of his companions were around him, "Swear allegiance to me for: 1. NOT TO JOIN ANYTHING (note: anything, such as idols and etc., is mentioned instead of anybody) IN WORSHIP ALONG WITH ALLAH. 2. NOT TO STEAL. 3. NOT TO COMMIT ILLEGAL SEXUAL INTERCOURSE. 4. NOT TO KILL YOUR CHILDREN. 5. NOT TO ACCUSE INNOCENT PERSON (to spread such an accusation among people). 6. NOT TO DISOBEDIENT (when ordered) TO DO GOOD DEED." The Prophet added: "Whoever among you fulfills his pledge will be rewarded by Allah. And whoever indulges in any one of them (except the ascription of partners to Allah) and gets the punishment in this world, that punishment will be an expiation for that sin. And if one indulges in any of them, and Allah conceals his sin, it is up to Him to forgive or punish him (in the Hereafter)." 'Ubada bin As-Samit added: "So we swore allegiance for these." (points to Allah's Apostle)"

Sahih Bukhari, Book #2, Hadith #27, "Narrated 'Abdullah bin 'Amr: A person asked Allah's Apostle . "What (sort of) deeds in or (what qualities of) Islam are good?" He replied, "TO FEED (THE POOR) and GREET THOSE WHOM YOU KNOW AND THOSE YOU DON'T KNOW."

Sahih Bukhari, Book #83, Hadith #12, " Narrated 'Ubada bin As-Samat: I was among those Naqibs (selected leaders) who gave the Pledge of allegiance to Allah's Apostle. We gave the oath of allegiance, that we would not join partners in worship besides Allah, WOULD NOT STEAL, WOULD NOT COMMIT ILLEGAL INTERCOURSE, WOULD NOT KILL A LIFE which Allah has forbidden, WOULD NOT COMMIT ROBBERY, would not disobey (Allah and His Apostle), and if we fulfilled this pledge we would have Paradise, but if we committed any one of these (sins), then our case will be decided by Allah.
