Hadith

On the authority of Abu Dharr Jundub ibn Junada and Abu ‘Abd ar-Rahman Mu’adh ibn Jabal (may Allah be pleased with them both), that the Messenger of Allah (may the blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said:

Fear Allah wherever you are, and follow up a bad deed with a good one and it will wipe it out, and behave well towards people.

Al-Tirmidhi

On the authority of Abu Hurairah ‘Abd ar-Rahman ibn Sakhr (may Allah be pleased with him), who said: I heard the Messenger of Allah (May the blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) say:

What I have forbidden to you, avoid: what I have ordered you (to do), do as much of it as you can. It was only their excessive questioning and their disagreeing with their Prophets that destroyed those who were before you.

Al-Bukhari and Muslim

Abu Hurayrah reported that the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said:

The five (daily) prayers, and from one Friday prayer to the next, and from Ramadan to Ramadan are expiation for sins committed in between provided one stays away from the major sins.

Al-Bukhari
