When anyone of you stands for the prayers, Satan comes and puts him in doubts till he forgets how many Rakat he has prayed. So if this happens to anyone of you, he should perform two prostrations of Sahu while sitting.

Dawud :: Book 40 : Hadith 4629

The Caliphate of Prophecy will last thirty years; then Allah will give the kingdom of His kingdom to anyone He wills.
Dawud :: Book 40 : Hadith 4590

One day the Apostle of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah swt be upon him) led us in prayer, then faced us and gave us a lengthy exhortation at which the eyes shed tears and the hearts were afraid.

A man said: Apostle of Allah! It seems as if it were a farewell exhortation, so what injunction do you give us?

He then said: I enjoin you to fear Allah, and to hear and obey even if it be an Abyssinian slave, for those of you who live after me will see great disagreement. You must then follow my sunnah and that of the rightly-guided caliphs. Hold to it and stick fast to it. Avoid novelties, for every novelty is an innovation, and every innovation is an error.
Dawud :: Book 40 : Hadith 4582

The best of the actions is to love for the sake of Allah and to hate for the sake of Allah.
