Hadith on Thoughts: Rejection of bad thoughts a sign of faith

Abu Huraira reported: Some of the companions came to the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, and they asked him, “We find within ourselves that which is to grievous to speak of.” The Prophet said, “You have indeed found it so?” They said yes. The Prophet said, “That is sincere faith.”

In another narration, the Prophet said, “That is pure faith.”

عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ قَالَ جَاءَ نَاسٌ مِنْ أَصْحَابِ النَّبِيِّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ فَسَأَلُوهُ إِنَّا نَجِدُ فِي أَنْفُسِنَا مَا يَتَعَاظَمُ أَحَدُنَا أَنْ يَتَكَلَّمَ بِهِ قَالَ وَقَدْ وَجَدْتُمُوهُ قَالُوا نَعَمْ قَالَ ذَاكَ صَرِيحُ الْإِيمَانِ

وفي رواية أخرى قال تِلْكَ مَحْضُ الإِيمَانِ
