1. Narrated Abu Hurairah Radiyallahu Anh: The Prophet (PBUH) said, "There was no Prophet among the Prophets but was given miracles because of which people had security or had belief, but what I have been given is the Divine Revelation which Allah has revealed to me. So, I hope that my followers will be more than those of any other Prophet on the Day of Resurrection." (Sahih Al-Bukhari , Vol.9, Hadith No.379)
2. It is obligatory to have Belief in the Messerngership of the Prophet (Muhammad Peace and Blessings of Allah Be Upon Him). Narrated Abu Hurairah Radiyallahu Anh: Allah's Messenger PBUH said: "By Him (Allah) in Whose Hand Muhammad's soul is, there is none from amongst the Jews and Christians (of these present nations) who hears about me and then dies without believing in the Message with which I have been sent (i.e. Islamic Monotheism), but he will be from the dwellers of the (Hell) Fire." (Sahih Muslim, the Book of Faith, Vol. 1, Chapter No.240)
3. Narrated Abu Hurairah Radiyallahu Anh: The Prophet (PBUH) said: "Angels come (to you) in succession by night and day, and all of them get together at the time of the Fajr and 'Asr prayers. Then those who have stayed with you overnihgt, ascend to Allah, Who asks them (and He knows the answer better than they): "How have you left My slaves?" They reply, "We left them while they were praying and we came to them while they were praying." The Prophet PBUH added: "If anyone of you says Amin (during the prayer at the end of the recitation of Surat Al-Fatihah), and the angels in heaven say the same, and the two sayings coincide, all his past sins will be forgiven." (Sahih Al-Bukhari, Vol.4, Hadith No.446)

Narrated Ibn 'Abbas Radiyallahu Anhuma: The Prophet PBUH narrating about his Lord (SWT) said, "Allah ordered (the angels appointed over you) that the good and the bad deeds be written, and He then showed (the way) how (to write). If somebody intends to do a good deed and he does not do it, then Allah will write for him a full good deed (in his account with Him); and if he intends to do a good deed and actually des it, then Allah will write for him (in his account) with Him (its reward equal) from ten to seven hundred times, to many more times; and if somebody intended to do a bad deed and he does not do it, then Allah will write a full good deed (in his account) with Him, and if he intended to do it (a bad deed) and actually does it, then Allah will write one bad deed (in his account)."
