The Hadith series is based on Bill Warner’s book The Political Traditions of Mohammed – The Hadith for Unbelievers. It is a compilation of all the Hadith (Traditions) related to non-Muslims. The Political Traditions of Mohammed contains both sets of Islamic ethics – one for the Muslim and one for the unbelievers.
Chapter 1 Ethics
B8,81,793 When Ubada and a group of others pledged allegiance to Mo¬hammed, the prophet said, “I accept your oath that you will worship only Allah and that you will not steal, kill unwanted children, slander others by lying or gossiping, or disobey my moral commands. If you honor all these promises, you will be rewarded by Allah in the afterlife. If you break any of these promises and are legally punished, you have made atonement and need not fear the punishment of Allah. However, if the will of Allah shields your sins from the eyes of man, your fate is in His hands to punish or forgive as he sees fit.”
Abu Abdullah said, “If a thief repents after his hand is severed, his tes¬timony will be accepted. Any Muslim who repents after punishment will have his testimony accepted.”
