Giving Advice For The Qur'an Al- Karim And Muhammad Alaihis-salam

Giving advice (nasihat) for the Qur'an is that everyone should believe in the facts written in the Qur'an; everyone should perform commandments written in the Qur'an; no one should attempt to make translations of the Qur'an with their limited comprehension; everyone should read or recite the Qur'an much in the best and truest way and everyone should know and let others know that it is not permissible to touch the Qur'an without ritual cleansing (wudu).

Giving advice for the Prophet Muhammad 'alaihis-salam' is to let (others) know that it is necessary for everyone to believe everything taught by him; it is necessary for everyone to respect him and his name; it is necessary for everyone to practice and spread his Sunnat [1]; it is necessary for everyone to assimilate his beautiful morals and ethics, and it is a must for everyone to love his progeny (Ahl-i bait) [2] and his companions (Sahaba) [3] and his followers (Ummat) [4].

GLOSSARY
[1] sunnat: i) act, thing that was, though not commanded by Allahu ta'ala, done and liked by the Prophet ('alaihi 's-salam) as an 'ibada (there is thawab if done, but no sin if omitted, yet it causes sin if continually omitted and disbelief if disliked; the Sunna; i) (with fard) all the sunnas as a whole; ii) (with the Book or Qur'an al-karim) the Hadith ash-sharif; iii) (alone) fiqh, Islam.
[2] Ahl al-Bait: immediate relatives of the Prophet ('alaihi 's-salam): (according to most 'ulama') 'Ali, first cousin and son-in-law; Fatima, daughter; Hasan and Husain, grandsons (radiy-Allahu ta'ala 'anhum).
[3] Sahaba: if a Muslim has seen the Prophet, or talked to him, at least once when the Prophet was alive, he is called Sahabi. Plural form of Sahabi is Sahaba or As'hab. The word Sahaba-i kiram includes all those great people each of whom has seen the Prophet at least once. The lowest of the Sahaba is much higher than the highest of other Muslims. If a person has not seen the Prophet but has seen or talked to one of the Sahaba at least once, he is called Tabi'. Its plural form is Tabi'in. In other words, the Tabi'in are the successors of the Sahaba. If a person has not seen any of the Sahaba but has seen at least one of the Tabi'in, he is called Taba'i Tabi'in. The Sahaba, the Tabi'in and the Taba'i tabi'in altogether are called the Salaf-i salihin (the early savants).
[4] umma(t) followers of Muhammad ('alaihi 's-salam); the community, body of believers, of a prophet.
