This is a two-fold-question which required completion ofHadith 15 of an-Nawawi and explanation of its
lessons. Going by the observation of Chief Examiners, many candidates chose the question and were able
to complete the Hadith accurately. For a few of them who could not do the completion in English, they resorted to its completion in Arabic. Let it therefore be noted that the language of a question of this
nature should also be the language of answers expected from candidates. Lessons such as good use of the
tongue, goodness to the neighbour and hospitality towards the guest, enhanced candidates' performance.
