About making peace among people
1-Narrated Abu-Huraira : Allah’s Messenger said: (One should give in charity for every joint of the human body (as a sign of gratitude to Allah) every day the sun rises. To judge justly between two people is regarded as giving in charity, and to help a man concerning his amount, by helping him to ride it or by lifting his luggage on to it, is also regarded as giving in charity, to say a good word is also giving in charity, every step taken on one’s way to offer the compulsory prayer(in the mosque) is also giving in charity, and to remove a harmful thing from the pathway is also giving in charity.) – (Bukhari)
2-Narrated Asama`a bint Yazeed: Allah’s Messenger said: (Lying is permissible as regards three affairs: a husband taking to his wife to please her, a warrior in regards to matter concerning war, and man (mediator) trying to reconcile between people. )

He said: that person whose neighbor does not feel safe from his evil. It was narrated that a man came to Ibn Mas`oud and said; I have a neighbor that hurts me, abuse me, and annoy me. He said: go (pardon me). If he disobeyed Allah regarding you, obey Allah regarding him.

About contentment with small things and spending moderately
1-Narrated Abu-Huraira : the Prophet said : being rich does not mean having a great deal of property, but richness is self-contentment.
2- Narrated Hakeem ibn Hezam: once, I asked Allah’s Messenger for something and he gave it to me; again I asked and he gave it to me; again I asked and he gave it to me. Then He said: O Hakeem! This property is a like a sweet fresh fruit; whoever takes it without greediness, it will be blessed for him, and whoever takes it with greediness, it will not be blessed for him. Such person is like a person who eats but is never satisfied. And the upper (giving) hand is better than the lower(receiving) hand.
Hakeem added : I said to Allah’s Messenger : By Him (Allah) who sent you with the truth, l shall never accept anything form anybody after you, until I leave this world. Then Abu Bakr during his caliphate called Hakeem to give him his share from AL-Fay(it is differ from war booty, AL-Fay is any revenue added to the common treasury unrelated to fighting; an example of this is the property left by any heirless person on his death ), he once again refused to accept anything. Then Omar did the same during his caliphate and Hakeem refused. At that, Omar said: O Muslims! I would like you to witness that I offered Hakeem his share from this booty and he refused to take it. So Hakeem never took anything form anybody after the Prophet until hr died.

About Satisfying Muslims’ Needs
1. Narrated Ibn Omar: ‘The Messenger of Allah Said: “The Muslims are brothers. A Muslim should not treat his Muslim brother unjustly or forsake him. He that helps his brother achieve his end, Allah will be in support of him. He that alleviates a distress from a believer, Allah will alleviate a distress from him on the Day of Judgment. And he that veils a Muslim, Allah would veil his misdeeds in the Hereafter.” (At- Termizi).
2. Narrated Abu-Huraira: ‘The Messenger of Allah said: “He that relieved his brother from a wordly distress, Allah will relieve him from distress in the Hereafter, he that veiled a defect of a Muslim, Allah will veil him in life and in the Hereafter, and he that eased (the state of) an insolvent (brother), Allah would ease (his state) in life and in the Hereafter. Allah will support him that he supports his brother. He that took a way searching for knowledge, Allah will facilitate a way to Paradise for him. There is no group of people who sit in a mosque reciting Allah’s Book and studying it among themselves except that tranquility will descend on them, mercy will overshadow them, and the angels will encircle them. And he whose deed caused him to lag behind his affinity will not bring him forward.” (At- Termizi).
Defects as ordered in this Hadith is confined to defects of those who are not known to be committing major and harmful acts of disobedience or sins. As to those known to be committing such acts of disobedience, it is recommended to report this to the ruler, as long as this would not lead to an even more dangerous problem.
He that gives a period of grace for prepayment or exempted a debtor from his debt, regardless of whether the debtor is a believer or an unbeliever, Allah will ease each difficult matter for him.
As to the role of one’s affinity, this is confined to the life in this world only, where authority and social status have very important roles. As to Allah, no one can draw near to Him, except through righteous deeds and piety.
