Benefits from the Hadith

  1. Combining knowledge and action guarantees safety from the path of those who incurred Allah's wrath as well as those who went astray.
  2. Warning against the path adopted by the Jews and Christians and calling to adhere to the straight path, which is Islam.
  3. Both the Jews and the Christians have gone astray and have incurred Allah's wrath; however, incurring Allah's wrath is the Jews' most distinct characteristic, whereas the Christians' most distinct characteristic is their misguidance.
