What were the recommendations of the Prophet of Islam (PBUH) to all Muslims for the Islamic way of living?

SHAFAQNA – In his recommendations to Imam Ali (AS), the Prophet of Islam (PBUH) said: O’ Ali, always tell the truth, and never allow lies come out of your mouth, and never betray any one, and fear God as if you can see God with your own eyes, and sacrifice your wealth and life in the way of religion and your belief. And adopt for yourself good behaviour, and avoid bad characteristics and ugly temper. O’ Ali, beware that Hajj and visiting the House of God removes poverty and needs, and Sadaqah (paying to charity) removes calamities. O’ Ali, ask less from people, independence is an asset, and asking too often from others is abjection and existing poverty [1].

The Prophet (PBUH) also said: Get help and guidance from your wisdom and intellect, and do not disobey it; in order to find out the right path; otherwise you will be sorry and regretful [2]. Of course The Prophet (PBUH) made these recommendations for all Muslims and the reason he told them to Imam Ali (AS) because Imam (AS) was present at the time when the Prophet (PBUH) was making his will, and the Prophet (PBUH) wanted to convey his recommendations to all Muslim through the most reliable source available after himself.
