An-Nu'man ibn Basheer reports that he heard God's messenger [saw] say: "That which is lawful is plain and that which is unlawful is plain. Between the two of them are doubtful matters of which not many people are aware. Thus, he who avoids doubtful matters clears himself in regard to his faith and his honor, but he who falls into doubtful matters falls into that which is unlawful, like the shepherd who pastures around a sanctuary, all but grazing therein. Truly every king has a sanctuary, and truly God's sanctuary is His prohibitions. Truly in the body there is a [color=Red]morsel of flesh[/color] which, if it be wholesome, all the body is wholesome, and which, if it be diseased, all of it is diseased. Truly it is the [color=Red]heart[/color]." (Related by Al-Bukhari and Muslim).
Wassalamu Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
