What is Allah's Right upon His slaves is and slaves right upon Allah ?

Narrated Mu'adh bin Jabal (Radi-Allahu 'anhu): The Prophet (Sallallahu 'Alaihi Wa Sallam) said, "O Mu'adh! Do you know what Allah's Right upon His slaves is?" I said, "Allah and His Apostle know best." The Prophet (Sallallahu 'Alaihi Wa Sallam) said, "To worship Him (Allah) Alone and to join none in worship with Him (Allah). Do you know what their right upon Him is?" I replied, "Allah and His Apostle know best." The Prophet (Sallallahu 'Alaihi Wa Sallam) said, "Not to punish them (if they do so)." Bukhari Vol. 9 : No. 470

Narrated Ubaidullah (Radi-Allahu 'anhu): Ibn 'Abbas said, "Why do you ask the people of the scripture about anything while your Book (Quran) which has been revealed to Allah's Apostle is newer and the latest? You read it pure, undistorted and unchanged, and Allah has told you that the people of the scripture (Jews and Christians) changed their scripture and distorted it, and wrote the scripture with their own hands and said, 'It is from Allah,' to sell it for a little gain. Does not the knowledge which has come to you prevent you from asking them about anything? No, by Allah, we have never seen any man from them asking you regarding what has been revealed to you!" Bukhari Vol. 9 : No. 461

Narrated 'Amr bin Al-'As (Radi-Allahu 'anhu): That he heard Allah's Apostle (Sallallahu 'Alaihi Wa Sallam) saying, "If a judge gives a verdict according to the best of his knowledge and his verdict is correct (i.e. agrees with Allah and His Apostle's verdict) he will receive a double reward, and if he gives a verdict according to the best of his knowledge and his verdict is wrong, (i.e. against that of Allah and His Apostle) even then he will get a reward." Bukhari Vol. 9 : No. 450

Narrated Ibn 'Abbas (Radi-Allahu 'anhu): A woman came to the Prophet (Sallallahu 'Alaihi Wa Sallam) and said, "My mother vowed to perform the Hajj but she died before performing it. Should I perform the Hajj on her behalf?" He said, "Yes! Perform the Hajj on her behalf. See, if your mother had been in debt, would you have paid her debt?" She said, "Yes." He said, "So you should pay what is for Him as Allah has more right that one should fulfill one's obligations to Him. " Bukhari Vol. 9 : No. 418
