HADITH OF THE DAY:
THE FINAL BRICK
The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said:
"My comparison to the other prophets before me is that of a man who built a beautiful house, except for the placement of one brick in a corner. The people go about it and wonder at its beauty, saying: 'But for the placement of this (final) brick (how splendid the house would be)!'"
Sahih Al-Bukhari, Volume 4, Hadiths 734 and 735
The Prophet also said:
"Both in this world and in the Hereafter, I am the nearest of all the people to Jesus, the son of Mary. The prophets are paternal brothers; their mothers are different, but their religion is one."
Sahih Al-Bukhari, Volume 4, Hadith 652
