Narrated 'Ubada bin As-Samit:
who took part in the battle of Badr and was a Naqib (a
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 in worship along with Allah.
3. Not to commit illegal sexual intercourse.
4. Not to kill your children.
5. Not to accuse
an innocent person (to spread such an
accusation among people).
6. Not to be disobedient (when ordered) to do good
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)
