Hadeeth #9 (Responsibility is Dependent on Ability)

On the authority of Aboo Hurayrah ‘Abdur-Rahman ibn sakhr (radhiAllahu ‘anhoo) that he said: I heard the Messenger of Allah (SallaAllahu ‘allayhee wassallam) saying: “That which i have forbidden you from, abstain from it. That which I have ordered you with, do as much of it as you are able. It was only their excessive questioning and disagreeing with their Prophets that destroyed those before you.”

(Al-Bukhari #7288; Muslim #1337; Ibn Maajah #2; an-Nasaa`ee 110-111/5; ad-Daaraqutnee 281/2; Imaam al-Bayhaqee in as-Sunan al-Kubraa #8699)
