Hadith on Islam: What does the Prophet call to?

Abu Tamimah reported: A man from Balhujaym said, “O Messenger of Allah, to what are you calling?” The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “I call to Allah alone. If He lets you be harmed, you will call upon Him, and He will remove it. If you are lost in the wilderness, you will call upon Him, and He will bring you back. If you are afflicted by famine, you will call upon Him, and He will make your crops grow.” The man said, “Advise me.” The Prophet said, “Do not insult anyone, and do not belittle any good deed, even meeting your brother with a cheerful face, or sharing your vessel with a thirsty person. Raise your garment to the middle of your shin or, if you must, to the ankles. Beware of trailing your garments out of pride, for Allah does not love the boastful.”

عَنْ أَبِي تَمِيمَةَ الْهُجَيْمِيِّ عَنْ رَجُلٍ مِنْ بَلْهُجَيْمٍ قَالَ قُلْتُ يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ إِلَامَ تَدْعُو قَالَ أَدْعُو إِلَى اللَّهِ وَحْدَهُ الَّذِي إِنْ مَسَّكَ ضُرٌّ فَدَعَوْتَهُ كَشَفَ عَنْكَ وَالَّذِي إِنْ ضَلَلْتَ بِأَرْضٍ قَفْرٍ دَعَوْتَهُ رَدَّ عَلَيْكَ وَالَّذِي إِنْ أَصَابَتْكَ سَنَةٌ فَدَعَوْتَهُ أَنْبَتَ عَلَيْكَ قَالَ قُلْتُ فَأَوْصِنِي قَالَ لَا تَسُبَّنَّ أَحَدًا وَلَا تَزْهَدَنَّ فِي الْمَعْرُوفِ وَلَوْ أَنْ تَلْقَى أَخَاكَ وَأَنْتَ مُنْبَسِطٌ إِلَيْهِ وَجْهُكَ وَلَوْ أَنْ تُفْرِغَ مِنْ دَلْوِكَ فِي إِنَاءِ الْمُسْتَسْقِي وَائْتَزِرْ إِلَى نِصْفِ السَّاقِ فَإِنْ أَبَيْتَ فَإِلَى الْكَعْبَيْنِ وَإِيَّاكَ وَإِسْبَالَ الْإِزَارِ فَإِنَّ إِسْبَالَ الْإِزَارِ مِنَ الْمَخِيلَةِ وَإِنَّ اللهَ لَا يُحِبُّ الْمَخِيلَةَ
