As-Salaam alaikum,

"There are 4 gems in the body of the son of Adam that are removed by 4 things-- as for the
gems they are Intellect, Religion, Shame and Good deeds. Anger removes the intellect, envy
removes religion, desire removes shame and backbiting removes good deeds."-- Prophet Muhammad, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam.

"Darkness is of 5 types and its lamps are 5-- Love of Dunya is a darkness and its lamp is
God-consciousness; Sins are a darkness and their lamp is repentance; the grave is a darkness
and its lamp is 'LA ILAHA ILLALLAH, MUHAMMADUR-RASULLULLAH'; the Hereafter is a darkness
and its lamp are Righteous actions; and the path [Siradii] is a darkness and its lamp is Certitude."-- Abu Bakr al-Siddiq, may Allah be pleased with him.

will "Modesty" in place of "Shame" be an appropriate word?

بسم الله والصلاة والسلام على رسول الله،
أما بعد،

You question was regarding three narrations:

1. "The one who tries to reach Me, knows Me.....

2. "There are 4 gems in the body of the son of Adam......

3. "Darkness is of 5 types and its lamps are 5.....


The first narration:

من عرفني أحبني ومن أحبني عشقني ومن عشقني طلبني ومن طلبني قتلته ومن قتلته لزمتني ديته ومن لزمتني ديته فأنا ديته ومن كنت ديته فلا فرق بيني وبينه

This narration has no basis whatsoever. Some of Rawaafidh have mentioned it in their books.

The second narration:

اربعة جواهر في جسم بني آدم يزيلها أربعة أشياء . أما الجواهر : فالعقل، و الدين، و الحياء، و العمل الصالح، فالغضب يزيل العقل، و الحسد يزيل الدين، و الطمع يزيل الحياء، و الغيبة تزيل العمل الصالح

I could not find this narration in any book. As for the reference you forwarded of Ibn Hajar al-Asqalani R.A; the name of the book is;
الاستعداد ليوم الجزاء/ ليوم المعاد
(Preparing for the day of Judgement)

This book has been falsely attributed to Ibn Hajar R.A as it been stated by many Ulama.

It could be the saying of a scholar. This narration has also been mentioned in some Rawaafidh books and has been attributed to Ali R.A.

The third narration:

الظلمات خمس,ولكل واحده سراج :
فالذنوب ظلمه وسراجها التوبه .
والقبر ظلمه وسراجها الصلاه
والميزان ظلمه وسراجه لااله الاالله
والصراط ظلمه وسراجه اليقين
والاخره ظلمه وسراجها العمل الصالح
رد مع اقتباس

This narration is also not a hadith of the Prophet Muhammad
صلي الله عليه وسلم
The message you forwarded attributes this narration to Abu Bakr R.A.

I did find another book that also attributes this narration to Abu Bakr R.A. The book is called;
زهة المجالس ومنتخب النفائس
By Abdur Rahman Ibn Abd as-Salam as-Safoori R.A.

As for the authenticity of this book the scholars state it that it contains weak narrations and anything proven from such books can not be definitive. So we don't know for definite if this is a saying of Abu Bar R.A.

Note: When I look for a hadith or narration I have to translate it into Arabic first and then I try finding it. If I can not find it then 99% of the time it is not a hadith, however, there is a 1% chance that I have translated it incorrectly and due to that I have not been able to find it.

Hope this answers your questions.

والله ورسوله أعلم
