Hadith : Bukhari Vol 7
Translation of Sahih Bukhari, Book 62:
Wedlock, Marriage
(Nikaah)
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 1:
Narrated Anas bin Malik:
A group of three men came to the houses of the
wives of the Prophet asking how the Prophet
worshipped (Allah), and when they were
informed about that, they considered their
worship insufficient and said, "Where are we
from the Prophet as his past and future sins have
been forgiven." Then one of them said, "I will
offer the prayer throughout the night forever."
The other said, "I will fast throughout the year

and will not break my fast." The third said, "I will

keep away from the women and will not marry
forever." Allah's Apostle came to them and said,
"Are you the same people who said so-and-so?
By Allah, I am more submissive to Allah and
more afraid of Him than you; yet I fast and break
my fast, I do sleep and I also marry women. So

he who does not follow my tradition in religion, is

not from me (not one of my followers)."
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 2:
Narrated 'Ursa:
that he asked 'Aisha about the Statement of
Allah: 'If you fear that you shall not be able to
deal justly with the orphan girls, then marry
(other) women of your choice, two or three or

four; but if you fear that you shall not be able to

deal justly (with them), then only one, or (the

captives) that your right hands possess. That will

be nearer to prevent you from doing injustice.'
(4.3) 'Aisha said, "O my nephew! (This Verse
has been revealed in connection with) an orphan

girl under the guardianship of her guardian who is

attracted by her wealth and beauty and intends to
marry her with a Mahr less than what other
women of her standard deserve. So they (such
guardians) have been forbidden to marry them

unless they do justice to them and give them their

full Mahr, and they are ordered to marry other
women instead of them."
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 3:
Narrated 'Alqama:
While I was with Abdullah, 'Uthman met him at
Mina and said, "O Abu 'Abdur-Rahman ! I have
something to say to you." So both of them went
aside and 'Uthman said, "O Abu 'Abdur-Rah.
man! Shall we marry you to a virgin who will
make you remember your past days?" When

'Abdullah felt that he was not in need of that, he

beckoned me (to join him) saying, "O 'Alqama!"
Then I heard him saying (in reply to 'Uthman),
"As you have said that, (I tell you that) the
Prophet once said to us, 'O young people!
Whoever among you is able to marry, should
marry, and whoever is not able to marry, is
recommended to fast, as fasting diminishes his
sexual power.
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 4:
Narrated 'Abdullah:
We were with the Prophet while we were young
and had no wealth whatever. So Allah's Apostle
said, "O young people! Whoever among you can
marry, should marry, because it helps him lower
his gaze and guard his modesty (i.e. his private
parts from committing illegal sexual intercourse
etc.), and whoever is not able to marry, should
fast, as fasting diminishes his sexual power."
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 5:
Narrated 'Ata:
We presented ourselves along with Ibn 'Abbas at
the funeral procession of Maimuna at a place

called Sarif. Ibn 'Abbas said, "This is the wife of

the Prophet so when you lift her bier, do not Jerk

it or shake it much, but walk smoothly because
the Prophet had nine wives and he used to

observe the night turns with eight of them, and for

one of them there was no night turn."
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 6:
Narrated Anas:
The Prophet I used to go round (have sexual

relations with) all his wives in one night, and he

had nine wives.
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 7:
Narrated Said bin Jubair:
Ibn 'Abbas asked me, "Are you married?" I
replied, "No." He said, "Marry, for the best
person of this (Muslim) nation (i.e., Muhammad)
of all other Muslims, had the largest number of
wives."
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 8:
Narrated 'Umar bin Al-Khattab:
The Prophet said, "The rewards (of deeds) are

according to the intention, and everybody will get

the reward for what he has intended. So
whoever emigrated for Allah's and His Apostle's
sake, his emigration was for Allah and His
Apostle; and whoever emigrated for worldly
benefits, or to marry a woman, then his
emigration was for the thing for what he
emigrated for." (1)
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 9:
Narrated Ibn Masud:
We used to fight in the holy battles in the
company of the Prophet and we had no wives
with us. So we said, "O Allah's Apostle! Shall
we get castrated?" The Prophet forbade us to do
so.
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 10:
Narrated Anas bin Malik:
'Abdur-Rahman bin 'Auf came (from Mecca to
Medina) and the Prophet made a bond of
brotherhood between him and Sad bin Ar-Rabi'
Al-Ansari. Al-Ansari had two wives, so he
suggested that 'Abdur-Rahman take half, his
wives and property. 'Abdur-Rahman replied,
"May Allah bless you with your wives and
property. Kindly show me the market." So
'Abdur-Rahman went to the market and gained
(in bargains) some dried yoghurt and some
butter. After a few days the Prophet saw
Abdur-Rahman with some yellow stains on his
clothes and asked him, "What is that, O
'Abdur-Rahman?" He replied, "I had married an
Ansari woman." The Prophet asked, "How much
Mahr did you give her?" He replied, "The weight
of one (date) stone of gold." The Prophet said,
"Offer a banquet, even with one sheep."
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 11:

abstain from marrying (and other pleasures) and
if he had allowed him, we would have gotten
ourselves castrated.(1)

The Prophet prevented 'Uthman bin Mazun from
that (not marrying), and had he allowed him, we
would have got ourselves castrated.(1)
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 13o:
Narrated 'Abdullah:
We used to participate in the holy battles led by
Allah's Apostle and we had nothing (no wives)
with us. So we said, "Shall we get ourselves
castrated?" He forbade us that and then allowed
us to marry women with a temporary contract
(2) and recited to us: -- 'O you who believe !
Make not unlawful the good things which Allah
has made lawful for you, but commit no
transgression.' (5.87)
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 13h:
Narrated Abu Huraira:
I said, "O Allah's Apostle! I am a young man and
I am afraid that I may commit illegal sexual
intercourse and I cannot afford to marry." He
kept silent, and then repeated my question once

again, but he kept silent. I said the same (for the

third time) and he remained silent. Then repeated
my question (for the fourth time), and only then
the Prophet said, "O Abu Huraira! The pen has
dried after writing what you are going to
confront. So (it does not matter whether you) get
yourself castrated or not."
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 14:
Narrated 'Aisha :
I said, "O Allah's Apostle! Suppose you landed
in a valley where there is a tree of which
something has been eaten and then you found
trees of which nothing has been eaten, of which
tree would you let your camel graze?" He said,
"(I will let my camel graze) of the one of which
nothing has been eaten before." (The
sub-narrator added: 'Aisha meant that Allah's
Apostle had not married a virgin besides herself
.)
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 15:
Narrated 'Aisha:
Allah's Apostle said (to me), "You have been
shown to me twice in (my) dreams. A man was
carrying you in a silken cloth and said to me,

'This is your wife.' I uncovered it; and behold, it

was you. I said to myself, 'If this dream is from
Allah, He will cause it to come true.' "
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 16:
Narrated Jabir bin Abdullah:
While we were returning from a Ghazwa (Holy
Battle) with the Prophet, I started driving my
camel fast, as it was a lazy camel A rider came
behind me and pricked my camel with a spear he
had with him, and then my camel started running
as fast as the best camel you may see. Behold!
The rider was the Prophet himself. He said,
'What makes you in such a hurry?" I replied, I
am newly married " He said, "Did you marry a
virgin or a matron? I replied, "A matron." He
said, "Why didn't you marry a young girl so that
you may play with her and she with you?" When
we were about to enter (Medina), the Prophet
said, "Wait so that you may enter (Medina) at
night so that the lady of unkempt hair may comb
her hair and the one whose husband has been
absent may shave her pubic region.
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 17:
Narrated Jabir bin 'Abdullah:
When I got married, Allah's Apostle said to me,
"What type of lady have you married?" I replied,
"I have married a matron' He said, "Why, don't

you have a liking for the virgins and for fondling

them?" Jabir also said: Allah's Apostle said,
"Why didn't you marry a young girl so that you
might play with her and she with you?'
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 18:
Narrated 'Ursa:
The Prophet asked Abu Bakr for 'Aisha's hand
in marriage. Abu Bakr said "But I am your
brother." The Prophet said, "You are my brother
in Allah's religion and His Book, but she (Aisha)
is lawful for me to marry."
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 19:
Narrated Abu Huraira:
The Prophet said, "The best women are the
riders of the camels and the righteous among the
women of Quraish. They are the kindest women
to their children in their childhood and the more
careful women of the property of their
husbands."
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 20:
Narrated Abu Burda's father:
Allah's Apostle said, any man who has a slave
girl whom he educates properly, teaches good
manners, manumits and marries her, will get a
double reward And if any man of the people of
the Scriptures believes in his own prophet and
then believes in me too, he will (also) get a
double reward And any slave who fulfills his duty
to his master and to his Lord, will (also) get a
double reward."
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 21:
Narrated Abu Huraira:
The Prophet said: Abraham did not tell lies
except three. (One of them was) when Abraham
passed by a tyrant and (his wife) Sara was
accompanying him (Abu Huraira then mentioned
the whole narration and said:) (The tyrant) gave
her Hajar. Sara said, "Allah saved me from the
hands of the Kafir (i.e. infidel) and gave me
Hajar to serve me." (Abu Huraira added:) That
(Hajar) is your mother, O Banu Ma'-As-Sama'
(i.e., the Arabs).
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 22:
Narrated Anas:
The Prophet stayed for three days between
Khaibar and Medina, and there he consummated
his marriage to Safiyya bint Huyai. I invited the
Muslims to the wedding banquet in which neither
meat nor bread was offered. He ordered for
leather dining-sheets to be spread, and dates,

dried yoghurt and butter were laid on it, and that

was the Prophet's wedding banquet. The
Muslims wondered, "Is she (Saffiyya) considered

as his wife or his slave girl?" Then they said, "If

he orders her to veil herself, she will be one of
the mothers of the Believers; but if he does not

order her to veil herself, she will be a slave girl.

So when the Prophet proceeded from there, he
spared her a space behind him (on his
she-camel) and put a screening veil between her
and the people.
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 23:
Narrated Anas bin Malik:
Allah's Apostle manumitted Safiyya and regarded
her manumission as her Mahr.
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 24:
Narrated Sahl bin Sad As-Sa'idi:
A woman came to Allah's Apostle and said, "O
Allah's Apostle! I have come to give you myself
in marriage (without Mahr)." Allah's Apostle
looked at her. He looked at her carefully and
fixed his glance on her and then lowered his
head. When the lady saw that he did not say
anything, she sat down. A man from his
companions got up and said, "O Allah's Apostle!
If you are not in need of her, then marry her to
me." The Prophet said, "Have you got anything
to offer?" The man said, "No, by Allah, O Allah's
Apostle!" The Prophet said (to him), "Go to your
family and see if you have something." The man
went and returned, saying, "No, by Allah, I have
not found anything." Allah's Apostle said, "(Go

again) and look for something, even if it is an iron

ring." He went again and returned, saying, "No,
by Allah, O Allah's Apostle! I could not find
even an iron ring, but this is my Izar (waist

sheet)." He had no rida. He added, "I give half of

it to her." Allah's Apostle said, "What will she do

with your Izar? If you wear it, she will be naked,

and if she wears it, you will be naked." So that
man sat down for a long while and then got up
(to depart). When Allah's Apostle saw him
going, he ordered that he be called back. When
he came, the Prophet said, "How much of the
Quran do you know?" He said, "I know such
Sura and such Sura," counting them. The Prophet
said, "Do you know them by heart?" He replied,
"Yes." The Prophet said, "Go, I marry her to you
for that much of the Quran which you have."
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 25:
Narrated 'Aisha:
Abu Hudhaifa bin 'Utba bin Rabi'a bin Abdi
Shams who had witnessed the battle of Badr
along with the Prophet adopted Salim as his son,
to whom he married his niece, Hind bint
Al-Walid bin 'Utba bin Rabi'a; and Salim was the
freed slave of an Ansar woman, just as the
Prophet had adopted Zaid as his son. It was the
custom in the Pre-lslamic Period that if
somebody adopted a boy, the people would call
him the son of the adoptive father and he would
be the latter's heir. But when Allah revealed the
Divine Verses: 'Call them by (the names of) their
fathers . . . your freed-slaves,' (33.5) the
adopted persons were called by their fathers'
names. The one whose father was not known,
would be regarded as a Maula and your brother
in religion. Later on Sahla bint Suhail bin 'Amr
Al-Quraishi Al-'Amiri--and she was the wife of
Abu- Hudhaifa bin 'Utba--came to the Prophet
and said, "O Allah's Apostle! We used to
consider Salim as our (adopted) son, and now
Allah has revealed what you know (regarding
adopted sons)." The sub-narrator then mentioned
the rest of the narration.
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 26:
Narrated 'Aisha:
Allah's Apostle entered upon Dubaa bint
Az-Zubair and said to her, "Do you have a desire
to perform the Hajj?" She replied, "By Allah, I

feel sick." He said to her, "Intend to perform Hajj

and stipulate something by saying, 'O Allah, I will

finish my Ihram at any place where You stop me

(i.e. I am unable to go further)." She was the wife

of Al-Miqdad bin Al-Aswad.
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 27:
Narrated Abu Huraira:
The Prophet said, "A woman is married for four
things, i.e., her wealth, her family status, her
beauty and her religion. So you should marry the
religious woman (otherwise) you will be a losers.
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 28:
Narrated Sahl:
A man passed by Allah's Apostle and Allah s
Apostle asked (his companions) "What do you
say about this (man)?" They replied "If he asks
for a lady's hand, he ought to be given her in
marriage; and if he intercedes (for someone) his
intercessor should be accepted; and if he speaks,
he should be listened to." Allah's Apostle kept
silent, and then a man from among the poor
Muslims passed by, an Allah's Apostle asked
(them) "What do you say about this man?" They

replied, "If he asks for a lady's hand in marriage

he does not deserve to be married, and he
intercedes (for someone), his intercession should
not be accepted; And if he speaks, he should not
be listened to.' Allah's Apostle said, "This poor

man is better than so many of the first as filling

the earth.'
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 29:
Narrated 'Ursa:
that he asked 'Aisha regarding the Verse: 'If you

fear that you shall not be able to deal justly with

the orphans (4.3) She said, "O my nephew! This
Verse refers to the orphan girl who is under the
guardianship of her guardian who likes her
beauty and wealth and wishes to (marry her and)
curtails her Mahr. Such guardians have been
forbidden to marry them unless they do justice by
giving them their full Mahr, and they have been
ordered to marry other than them. The people

asked for the verdict of Allah's Apostle after that,

so Allah revealed: 'They ask your instruction
concerning the women . . . whom you desire to
marry.' (4.127) So Allah revealed to them that if
the orphan girl had beauty and wealth, they
desired to marry her and for her family status.
They can only marry them if they give them their
full Mahr. And if they had no desire to marry
them because of their lack of wealth and beauty,
they would leave them and marry other women.
So, as they used to leave them, when they had
no interest, in them, they were forbidden to
marry them when they had such interest, unless
they treated them justly and gave them their full

Mahr Apostle said, 'If at all there is evil omen, it

is in the horse, the woman and the house." a lady
is to be warded off. And the Statement of Allah:
'Truly, among your wives and your children,
there are enemies for you (i.e may stop you from
the obedience of Allah)' (64.14)
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 30:
Narrated Abdullah bin 'Umar:
Allah's Apostle said, "Evil omen is in the women,
the house and the horse.'
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 31:
Narrated Ibn 'Umar:
Evil omen was mentioned before the Prophet:
The Prophet said, "If there is evil omen in
anything, it is in the house, the woman and the
horse."
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 32:
Narrated Sahl bin Sad:

Allah's Apostle said, "If at all there is bad omen,

it is in the horse, the woman, and the house."
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 33:
Narrated Usama bin Zaid:
The Prophet said, "After me I have not left any
affliction more harmful to men than women."
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 34:
Narrated 'Aisha :
Three principles were established because of
Barira: (i) When Banra was manumitted she was
given the option (to remain with her slave
husband or not). (ii) Allah's Apostle said "The
Wala of the slave) is for the one who manumits
(the slave). (iii) When Allah's Apostle entered
(the house), he saw a cooking pot on the fire but
he was given bread and meat soup from the soup
of the home. The Prophet said, "Didn't I see the
cooking pot (on the fire)?" It was said, "That is
the meat given in charity to Barira, and you do

not eat the (things given in) charity." The Prophet

said, "It is an object of charity for Barira, and it is

a present for us."
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 35:
Narrated Aisha"
(regarding) the Verse: 'And if you fear that you

shall not be able to deal justly with the orphans...'

(4.3) It is about the orphan girl who is in the
custody of a man who is her guardian, and he
intends to marry her because of her wealth, but
he treats her badly and does not manage her
property fairly and honestly. Such a man should
marry women of his liking other than her, two or
three or four. 'Prohibited to you (for marriage)
are: ...your foster-mothers (who suckled you).'
(4.23) Marriage is prohibited between persons
having a foster suckling relationship
corresponding to a blood relationship which
renders marriage unlawful.
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 36:
Narrated 'Aisha:
(the wife of the Prophet) that while Allah's
Apostle was with her, she heard a voice of a man
asking permission to enter the house of Hafsa.
'Aisha added: I said, "O Allah's Apostle! This
man is asking permission to enter your house."
The Prophet said, "I think he is so-and-so,"

naming the foster-uncle of Hafsa. 'Aisha said, "If

so-and-so," naming her foster uncle, "were living,

could he enter upon me?" The Prophet said,

"Yes, for foster suckling relations make all those

things unlawful which are unlawful through
corresponding birth (blood) relations."
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 37:
Narrated Ibn 'Abbas:
It was said to the Prophet, "Won't you marry the
daughter of Hamza?" He said, "She is my foster
niece (brother's daughter). "
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 38:
Narrated Um Habiba:
(daughter of Abu Sufyan) I said, "O Allah's
Apostle! Marry my sister. the daughter of Abu
Sufyan." The Prophet said, "Do you like that?" I
replied, "Yes, for even now I am not your only
wife and I like that my sister should share the
good with me." The Prophet said, "But that is not
lawful for me." I said, We have heard that you
want to marry the daughter of Abu Salama." He
said, "(You mean) the daughter of Um Salama?"
I said, "Yes." He said, "Even if she were not my
step-daughter, she would be unlawful for me to
marry as she is my foster niece. I and Abu
Salama were suckled by Thuwaiba. So you
should not present to me your daughters or your
sisters (in marriage)." Narrated 'Ursa; Thuwaiba
was the freed slave girl of Abu Lahb whom he
had manumitted, and then she suckled the
Prophet. When Abu Lahb died, one of his
relatives saw him in a dream in a very bad state
and asked him, "What have you encountered?"
Abu Lahb said, "I have not found any rest since I
left you, except that I have been given water to
drink in this (the space between his thumb and
other fingers) and that is because of my
manumitting Thuwaiba."
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 39:
Narrated 'Aisha:
that the Prophet entered upon her while a man
was sitting with her. Signs of anger seemed to

appear on his face as if he disliked that. She said,

"Here is my (foster) brother." He said, "Be sure
as to who is your foster brother, for foster
suckling relationship is established only when
milk is the only food of the child."
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 40:
Narrated Aisha:
that Aflah the brother of Abu Al-Qu'ais, her
foster uncle, came, asking permission to enter
upon her after the Verse of Al-Hijab (the use of
veils by women) was revealed. 'Aisha added: I
did not allow him to enter, but when Allah's
Apostle came, I told him what I had done, and
he ordered me to give him permission.
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 41:
Narrated 'Uqba bin Al-Harith:
I married a woman and then a black lady came
to us and said, "I have suckled you both (you
and your wife)." So I came to the Prophet and
said, "I married so-and-so and then a black lady
came to us and said to me, 'I have suckled both
of you.' But I think she is a liar." The Prophet
turned his face away from me and I moved to
face his face, and said, "She is a liar." The
Prophet said, "How (can you keep her as your
wife) when that lady has said that she has
suckled both of you? So abandon (i.e., divorce)
her (your wife)."
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 42:
Narrated Um Habiba:
I said, "O Allah's Apostle! Do you like to have
(my sister) the daughter of Abu Sufyan?" The

Prophet said, "What shall I do (with her)?" I said,

"Marry her." He said, "Do you like that?" I said,
"(Yes), for even now I am not your only wife, so
I like that my sister should share you with me."
He said, "She is not lawful for me (to marry)." I
said, "We have heard that you want to marry."
He said, "The daughter of Um Salama?" I said,
"Yes." He said, "Even if she were not my
stepdaughter, she should be unlawful for me to
marry, for Thuwaiba suckled me and her father
(Abu Salama). So you should neither present
your daughters, nor your sisters, to me."
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 43:
Narrated Um Habiba:
I said, "O Allah's Apostle! Marry my sister, the
daughter of Abu Sufyan." He said, "Do you like
that?" I said, "Yes, for even now I am not your
only wife; and the most beloved person to share
the good with me is my sister." The Prophet said,

"But that is not lawful for me (i.e., to be married

to two sisters at a time.)" I said, "O Allah's
Apostle! By Allah, we have heard that you want
to marry Durra, the daughter of Abu Salama."
He said, "You mean the daughter of Um
Salama?" I said, "Yes." He said, "By Allah !
Even if she were not my stepdaughter, she would
not be lawful for me to marry, for she is my
foster niece, for Thuwaiba has suckled me and
Abu Salama; so you should neither present your
daughters, nor your sisters to me."

married to man along with her paternal or
maternal aunt.
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 45:

Narrated Abu Huraira:
The Prophet forbade that a woman should be
married to a man along with her paternal aunt or
with her maternal aunt (at the same time).
Az-Zuhri (the sub-narrator) said: There is a

similar order for the paternal aunt of the father of

one's wife, for 'Ursa told me that 'Aisha said,
"What is unlawful because of blood relations, is
also unlawful because of the corresponding foster
suckling relations."
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 47:
Narrated Ibn 'Umar :
Allah's Apostle forbade Ash-Shighar, which
means that somebody marries his daughter to
somebody else, and the latter marries his
daughter to the former without paying Mahr.
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 48:
Narrated Hisham's father:
Khaula bint Hakim was one of those ladies who
presented themselves to the Prophet for
marriage. 'Aisha said, "Doesn't a lady feel
ashamed for presenting herself to a man?" But
when the Verse: "(O Muhammad) You may
postpone (the turn of) any of them (your wives)
that you please,' (33.51) was revealed, " 'Aisha
said, 'O Allah's Apostle! I do not see, but, that

I heard Ibn Abbas (giving a verdict) when he
was asked about the Mut'a with the women, and

that, Ibn 'Abbas said, "Yes."

Al-Akwa':

Al-Akwa' said: Allah's Apostle's said, "If a man
and a woman agree (to marry temporarily), their

marriage should last for three nights, and if they

like to continue, they can do so; and if they want

to separate, they can do so." I do not know

whether that was only for us or for all the people

in general. Abu Abdullah (Al-Bukhari) said: 'Ali
made it clear that the Prophet said, "The Mut'a
marriage has been cancelled (made unlawful)."
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 53:
Narrated Thabit Al-Banani:
I was with Anas while his daughter was present
with him. Anas said, "A woman came to Allah's
Apostle and presented herself to him, saying, 'O
Allah's Apostle, have you any need for me (i.e.
would you like to marry me)?' "Thereupon
Anas's daughter said, "What a shameless lady
she was ! Shame! Shame!" Anas said, "She was
better than you; she had a liking for the Prophet
so she presented herself for marriage to him."
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 54:
Narrated Sahl bin Sad:
A woman presented herself to the Prophet (for
marriage). A man said to him, "O Allah's

Apostle! (If you are not in need of her) marry her

to me." The Prophet said, "What have you got?"
The man said, "I have nothing." The Prophet said

(to him), "Go and search for something) even if it

were an iron ring." The man went and returned
saying, "No, I have not found anything, not even

an iron ring; but this is my (Izar) waist sheet, and

half of it is for her." He had no Rida' (upper
garment). The Prophet said, "What will she do
with your waist sheet? If you wear it, she will
have nothing over her; and if she wears it, you
will have nothing over you." So the man sat down
and when he had sat a long time, he got up (to
leave). When the Prophet saw him (leaving), he
called him back, or the man was called (for him),
and he said to the man, "How much of the Quran
do you know (by heart)?" The man replied I
know such Sura and such Sura (by heart),"
naming the Suras The Prophet said, "I have
married her to you for what you know of the
Quran "
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 55:
Narrated 'Abdullah bin 'Umar :
'Umar bin Al-Khattab said, "When Hafsa bint
'Umar became a widow after the death of (her
husband) Khunais bin Hudhafa As-Sahmi who
had been one of the companions of the Prophet,
and he died at Medina. I went to 'Uthman bin
'Affan and presented Hafsa (for marriage) to him.

He said, "I will think it over.' I waited for a few

days, then he met me and said, 'It seems that it is

not possible for me to marry at present.' " 'Umar
further said, "I met Abu Bakr As-Siddique and

said to him, 'If you wish, I will marry my daughter

Hafsa to you." Abu Bakr kept quiet and did not
say anything to me in reply. I became more angry
with him than with 'Uthman. I waited for a few
days and then Allah's Apostle asked for her
hand, and I gave her in marriage to him.
Afterwards I met Abu Bakr who said, 'Perhaps
you became angry with me when you presented
Hafsa to me and I did not give you a reply?' I
said, 'Yes.' Abu Bakr said, 'Nothing stopped me
to respond to your offer except that I knew that
Allah's Apostle had mentioned her, and I never
wanted to let out the secret of Allah's Apostle.
And if Allah's Apostle had refused her, I would
have accepted her.' "
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 56:
Narrated Zainab bint Salama:
Um Habiba said to Allah's Apostle "We have
heard that you want to marry Durra bint
Abu-Salama." Allah's Apostle said, "Can she be
married along with Um Salama (her mother)?
Even if I have not married Um Salama, she
would not be lawful for me to marry, for her
father is my foster brother." 'And there is no
blame on you if you make hint of betrothal or

conceal it in your hearts. Allah is Oft-Forgiving,

Most Forbearing.' (2.235) Ibn 'Abbas said, "Hint
your intention of marrying' is made by saying (to
the widow) for example: "I want to marry, and I
wish that Allah will make a righteous lady
available for me.' " Al-Qasim said: One may say
to the widow: 'I hold all respect for you, and I
am interested in you; Allah will bring you much
good, or something similar 'Ata said: One should
hint his intention, and should not declare it
openly. One may say: 'I have some need. Have
good tidings. Praise be to Allah; you are fit to
remarry.' She (the widow) may say in reply: I am
listening to what you say,' but she should not
make a promise. Her guardian should not make a
promise (to somebody to get her married to him)
without her knowledge. But if, while still in the
Iddat period, she makes a promise to marry
somebody, and he ultimately marries her, they
are not to be separated by divorce (i.e., the
marriage is valid).
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 57:
Narrated 'Aisha:
Allah's Apostle said (to me), "You were shown
to me in a dream. An angel brought you to me,
wrapped in a piece of silken cloth, and said to
me, 'This is your wife.' I removed the piece of
cloth from your face, and there you were. I said

to myself. 'If it is from Allah, then it will surely

be.' "
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 58:
Narrated Sahl bin Sad:
A woman came to Allah's Apostle and said, "O
Allah's Apostle! I have come to you to present
myself to you (for marriage)." Allah's Apostle
glanced at her. He looked at her carefully and
fixed his glance on her and then lowered his
head. When the lady saw that he did not say
anything, she sat down. A man from his
companions got up and said, "O Allah's Apostle!
If you are not in need of her, then marry her to
me." The Prophet said, "Have you got anything
to offer." The man said, 'No, by Allah, O Allah's
Apostle!" The Prophet said (to him), "Go to your
family and try to find something." So the man
went and returned, saying, "No, by Allah, O
Allah's Apostle! I have not found anything." The
Prophet said, "Go again and look for something,
even if it were an iron ring." He went and
returned, saying, "No, by Allah, O Allah's
Apostle! I could not find even an iron ring, but
this is my Izar (waist sheet).' He had no Rida
(upper garment). He added, "I give half of it to
her." Allah's Apostle said "What will she do with
your Izar? If you wear it, she will have nothing
over herself thereof (will be naked); and if she

wears it, then you will have nothing over yourself

thereof ' So the man sat for a long period and
then got up (to leave). When Allah's Apostle saw
him leaving, he ordered that he e called back.
When he came, the Prophet asked (him), "How
much of the Qur'an do you know (by heart)?"
The man replied, I know such Sura and such
Sura and such Sura," naming the suras. The
Prophet said, "Can you recite it by heart?" He
said, 'Yes." The Prophet said, "Go I let you
marry her for what you know of the Quran (as
her Mahr).

Narrated 'Aisha:
(as regards the Verse): 'And about what is
recited unto you in the Book, concerning orphan
girls to whom you give not the prescribed
portions and yet, whom you desire to marry.'
(4.127) This Verse is about the female orphan
who is under the guardianship of a man with
whom she shares her property and he has more
right over her (than anybody else) but does not
like to marry her, so he prevents her, from
marrying somebody else, lest he should share the
property with him.
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 60:
Narrated 'Abdullah bin 'Umar:
When Hafsa, 'Umar's daughter became a widow
because of the death of her (husband) Ibn
Hudhafa As-Sahmi who was one of the
companion of the Prophet and the one of the
Badr warriors and died at Medina, 'Umar said, "I
met 'Uthman bin 'Affan and gave him an offer,
saying, 'If you wish, I will marry Hafsa to you.'

He said. 'I will think it over' I waited for a few

days, then he met me and said, 'I have made up
my mind not to marry at present' "Umar added,
"Then I met Abu Bakr and said to him, 'If you
wish, I will marry Hafsa to you.' "
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 61:
Narrated Al-Hasan:
concerning the Verse: 'Do not prevent them'
(2.232) Ma'qil bin Yasar told me that it was
revealed in his connection. He said, "I married
my sister to a man and he divorced her, and
when her days of 'Idda (three menstrual periods)
were over, the man came again and asked for

her hand, but I said to him, 'I married her to you

and made her your bed (your wife) and favored
you with her, but you divorced her. Now you
come to ask for her hand again? No, by Allah,
she will never go back to you (again)!' That man
was not a bad man and his wife wanted to go
back to him. So Allah revealed this Verse: 'Do
not prevent them.' (2.232) So I said, 'Now I will
do it (let her go back to him), O Allah's
Apostle."So he married her to him again.
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 62:
Narrated 'Aisha:
(regarding His Statement): 'They ask your
instruction concerning the women. Say: Allah
instructs you about them ...' (4.127) It is about
the female orphan who is under the guardianship
of a man with whom she shares her property and
he does not want to marry her and dislikes that
someone else should marry her, lest he should
share the property with him, so he prevents her
from marrying. So Allah forbade such a guardian
to do so (i.e. to prevent her from marrying).
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 63:
Narrated Sahl bin Sad:
While we were sitting in the company of the
Prophet a woman came to him and presented

He said, "I have got nothing." The Prophet said,
"Not even an iron ring?" He Sad, "Not even an
iron ring, but I will tear my garment into two
halves and give her one half and keep the other
half." The Prophet; said, "No. Do you know
some of the Quran (by heart)?" He said, "Yes."
The Prophet said, "Go, I have agreed to marry
her to you with what you know of the Qur'an (as
her Mahr)." 'And for those who have no courses

are not in need of her then marry her to me." The
Prophet said, "Have you got anything m order to
pay her Mahr?" He said, "I have nothing with me
except my Izar (waist sheet)." The Prophet said,
"If you give her your Izar, you will have no Izar
to wear, (so go) and search for something. He
said, "I could not find anything." The Prophet

said, "Try (to find something), even if it were an

iron ring But he was not able to find (even that)

Majammi bin Yazid.
the same ,Hadith above: A man called Khidam
married a daughter of his (to somebody) against

her consent. 'If you fear that you shall not be able

to deal justly with the orphan girls then marry
(other) women of your choice.' (4.3) And if
somebody says to the guardian (of a woman),
"Marry me to so-and-so," and the guardian
remained silent or said to him, "What have you
got?" And the other said, "I have so much and so
much (Mahr)," or kept quiet, and then the
guardian said, "I have married her to you," then
the marriage is valid (legal). This narration was
told by Sahl on the authority of the Prophet
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 71:
Narrated 'Ursa bin Az-Zubair:
that he asked 'Aisha, saying to her, "O Mother!
(In what connection was this Verse revealed):
'If you fear that you shall not be able to deal

justly with orphan girls (to the end of the verse)

that your right hands possess?" (4.3) Aisha said,
"O my nephew! It was about the female orphan
under the protection of her guardian who was
interested in her beauty and wealth and wanted
to marry her with a little or reduced Mahr. So
such guardians were forbidden to marry female
orphans unless they deal with them justly and
give their full Mahr; and they were ordered to
marry women other than them."'Aisha added,
"(Later) the people asked Allah's Apostle, for
instructions, and then Allah revealed: 'They ask
your instruction concerning the women . . . And
yet whom you desire to marry.' (4.127) So Allah
revealed to them in this Verse that-if a female
orphan had wealth and beauty, they desired to
marry her and were interested in her noble
descent and the reduction of her Mahr; but if she
was not desired by them because of her lack in
fortune and beauty they left her and married
some other woman. So, as they used to leave her
when they had no interest in her, they had no

right to marry her if they had the desire to do so,

unless they deal justly with her and gave her a full

amount of Mahr."

asked him, "Have you got anything?" He said,
"No." The Prophet said, "Go and search for
something, even if it were an iron ring." The man
went and searched and then returned saying, "I
could not find anything, not even an iron ring."
Then the Prophet said, "Do you know something
of the Quran (by heart)?" He replied, "I know
(by heart) such Sura and such Sura." The
Prophet said, "Go! I have married her to you for
what you know of the Quran (by heart)."

ordered for the leather dining sheets to be
spread, and then dates, dried yogurt and butter
were provided over it, and that was the Walima
(banquet) of the Prophet. The Muslims asked
whether Safiyya would be considered as his wife
or as a slave girl of what his right hands
possessed. Then they said, "If the Prophet
screens her from the people, then she Is the

Prophet's wife but if he does not screen her, then

she is a slave girl." So when the Prophet
proceeded, he made a place for her (on the
camel) behind him and screened her from
people.

Narrated Anas bin Malik:
"Whenever the Prophet passed by (my mother
Um-Sulaim) he used to enter her and greet her.
Anas further said: Once the Prophet way a
bridegroom during his marriage with Zainab, Um
Sulaim said to me, "Let us give a gift to Allah's

Apostle ." I said to her, "Do it." So she prepared

Haisa (a sweet dish) made from dates, butter and
dried yoghurt and she sent it with me to him. I
took it to him and he said, "Put it down," and
ordered me to call some men whom he named,
and to invite whomever I would meet. I did what
he ordered me to do, and when I returned, I
found the house crowded with people and saw
the Prophet keeping his hand over the Haisa and
saying over it whatever Allah wished (him to
say). Then he called the men in batches of ten to
eat of it, and he said to them, "Mention the Name
of Allah, and each man should eat of the dish the
nearest to him." When all of them had finished
their meals, some of them left and a few

remained there talking, over which I felt unhappy.

Then the Prophet went out towards the dwelling
places (of his wives) and I too, went out after
him and told him that those people had left. Then

he returned and entered his dwelling place and let

the curtains fall while I was in (his) dwelling
place, and he was reciting the Verses:-- 'O you
who believe! Enter not the Prophet's house until
leave is given you for a meal, (and then) not (as
early as) to what for its preparation. But when
you are invited, enter, and when you have taken
your meals, disperse without sitting for a talk.
Verily such (behavior) annoys the Prophet; and
he would be shy of (asking) you (to go), but
Allah is not shy of (telling you) the Truth.'
(33-53) Abu Uthman said: Anas said, "I served
the Prophet for ten years."
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 93:
Narrated 'Aisha:
that she borrowed a necklace from Asma' and
then it got lost. So Allah's Apostle
sent some people from his companions in search
of it. In the meantime the stated time for the
prayer became due and they offered their prayer
without ablution. When they came to the
Prophet, they complained about it to him, so the
Verse regarding Tayammum was revealed .
Usaid bin Hudair said, "(O 'Aisha!) may Allah
bless you with a good reward, for by Allah,
never did a difficulty happen in connection with
you, but Allah made an escape from it for you,
and brought Allah's Blessings for the Muslims."
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 94:
Narrated Ibn Abbas:
The Prophet said, "If anyone of you, when having

sexual intercourse with his wife, says: Bismillah,

Allahumma jannibni-Sh-Shaitan wa
jannib-ish-Shaitan ma razaqtana, and if it is

destined that they should have a child, then Satan

will never be able to harm him."
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 95:
Narrated Anas bin Malik:
I was ten years old when Allah's Apostle arrived
at Medina. My mother and aunts used to urge
me to serve the Prophet regularly, and I served
him for ten years. When the Prophet died I was
twenty years old, and I knew about the order of
Al-Hijab (veiling of ladies) more than any other
person when it was revealed. It was revealed for
the first time when Allah's Apostle had
consummated his marriage with Zainab bint
Jahsh. When the day dawned, the Prophet was a
bridegroom and he invited the people to a
banquet, so they came, ate, and then all left
except a few who remained with the Prophet for
a long time. The Prophet got up and went out,
and I too went out with him so that those people
might leave too. The Prophet proceeded and so
did I, till he came to the threshold of 'Aisha's
dwelling place. Then thinking that these people
have left by then, he returned and so did I along
with him till he entered upon Zainab and behold,
they were still sitting and had not gone. So the
Prophet again went away and I went away along
with him. When we reached the threshold of
'Aisha's dwelling place, he thought that they had

left, and so he returned and I too, returned along

with him and found those people had left. Then
the Prophet drew a curtain between me and him,
and the Verses of Al-Hijab were revealed.

Narrated Anas:
When 'Abdur-Rahman bin 'Auf married an
Ansari woman, the Prophet asked him, "How
much Mahr did you give her?" 'Abdur-Rahman

companions) arrived at Medina, the emigrants
stayed at the Ansar's houses. 'Abdur-Rahman
bin 'Auf stayed at Sad bin Ar-Rabi's house. Sad
said to 'Abdur-Rahman, "I will divide and share
my property with you and will give one of my
two wives to you." 'Abdur-Rahman said, "May
Allah bless you, your wives and property (I am
not in need of that; but kindly show me the way
to the market)." So 'Abdur-Rahman went to the
market and traded there gaining a profit of some
dried yoghurt and butter, and married (an Ansari
woman). The Prophet said to him, "Give a
banquet, even if with one sheep."

Allah and His Apostle. What sin have I
committed?' Allah's Apostle said. "What is this

cushion?" I said, "I have bought it for you so that

you may sit on it and recline on it." Allah's
Apostle said, "The makers of these pictures will
be punished on the Day of Resurrection, and it

master's property and is responsible (for that).
Beware! All of you are guardians and are
responsible (for your wards)."
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 117:
Narrated 'Aisha:
Eleven women sat (at a place) and promised and
contracted that they would not conceal anything

of the news of their husbands. The first one said,

"My husband is like the meat of a lean weak
camel which is kept on the top of a mountain

which is neither easy to climb, nor is the meat fat,

so that one might put up with the trouble of
fetching it." The second one said, "I shall not
relate my husband's news, for I fear that I may

not be able to finish his story, for if I describe

him, I will mention all his defects and bad traits."

The third one said, "My husband is a tall man; if I

describe him (and he hears of that) he will
divorce me, and if I keep quiet, he will neither
divorce me nor treat me as a wife." The fourth
one said, "My husband is a moderate person like

the night of Tihama which is neither hot nor cold.

I am neither afraid of him, nor am I discontented
with him." The fifth one said, "My husband, when
entering (the house) is a leopard, and when going
out, is a lion. He does not ask about whatever is
in the house." The sixth one said, "If my husband
eats. he eats too much (leaving the dishes

empty), and if he drinks he leaves nothing, and if

he sleeps he sleeps alone (away from me)
covered in garments and does not stretch his
hands here and there so as to know how I fare
(get along)." The seventh one said, "My husband
is a wrong-doer or weak and foolish. All the
defects are present in him. He may injure your
head or your body or may do both." The eighth
one said, "My husband is soft to touch like a
rabbit and smells like a Zarnab (a kind of good
smelling grass)." The ninth one said, "My
husband is a tall generous man wearing a long
strap for carrying his sword. His ashes are
abundant and his house is near to the people who
would easily consult him." The tenth one said,
"My husband is Malik, and what is Malik? Malik
is greater than whatever I say about him. (He is
beyond and above all praises which can come to
my mind). Most of his camels are kept at home
(ready to be slaughtered for the guests) and only
a few are taken to the pastures. When the camels
hear the sound of the lute (or the tambourine)

they realize that they are going to be slaughtered

for the guests." The eleventh one said, "My
husband is Abu Zar and what is Abu Zar (i.e.,
what should I say about him)? He has given me
many ornaments and my ears are heavily loaded
with them and my arms have become fat (i.e., I
have become fat). And he has pleased me, and I
have become so happy that I feel proud of
myself. He found me with my family who were
mere owners of sheep and living in poverty, and
brought me to a respected family having horses
and camels and threshing and purifying grain .
Whatever I say, he does not rebuke or insult me.

When I sleep, I sleep till late in the morning, and

when I drink water (or milk), I drink my fill. The

mother of Abu Zar and what may one say in
praise of the mother of Abu Zar? Her saddle
bags were always full of provision and her house
was spacious. As for the son of Abu Zar, what
may one say of the son of Abu Zar? His bed is
as narrow as an unsheathed sword and an arm of

a kid (of four months) satisfies his hunger. As for

the daughter of Abu Zar, she is obedient to her

father and to her mother. She has a fat well-built

body and that arouses the jealousy of her

husband's other wife. As for the (maid) slave girl

of Abu Zar, what may one say of the (maid)
slavegirl of Abu Zar? She does not uncover our
secrets but keeps them, and does not waste our
provisions and does not leave the rubbish
scattered everywhere in our house." The eleventh
lady added, "One day it so happened that Abu
Zar went out at the time when the milk was being
milked from the animals, and he saw a woman
who had two sons like two leopards playing with
her two breasts. (On seeing her) he divorced me
and married her. Thereafter I married a noble
man who used to ride a fast tireless horse and
keep a spear in his hand. He gave me many

things, and also a pair of every kind of livestock

and said, 'Eat (of this), O Um Zar, and give

provision to your relatives." She added, "Yet, all

those things which my second husband gave me

could not fill the smallest utensil of Abu Zar's."

'Aisha then said: Allah's Apostle said to me, "I
am to you as Abu Zar was to his wife Um Zar."
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 118:
Narrated 'Ursa:
Aisha said, "While the Ethiopians were playing
with their small spears, Allah's Apostle screened
me behind him and I watched (that display) and
kept on watching till I left on my own." So you

may estimate of what age a little girl may listen to

amusement.
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 119:
Narrated Ibn 'Abbas :
I had been eager to ask 'Umar bin Al-Khattab
about the two ladies from among the wives of the
Prophet regarding whom Allah said 'If you two
(wives of the Prophet namely Aisha and Hafsa)
turn in repentance to Allah, your hearts are
indeed so inclined (to oppose what the Prophet

likes). (66.4) till 'Umar performed the Hajj and I

too, performed the Hajj along with him. (On the
way) 'Umar went aside to answer the call of
nature, and I also went aside along with him
carrying a tumbler full of water, and when 'Umar
had finished answering the call of nature, I
poured water over his hands and he performed
the ablution. Then I said to him, "O chief of the
Believers! Who were the two ladies from among
the wives of the Prophet regarding whom Allah
said: 'If you two (wives of the Prophet) turn in
repentance to Allah your hearts are indeed so
inclined (to oppose what the Prophet likes)?"
(66.4) He said, "I am astonished at your
question, O Ibn Abbas. They were 'Aisha and
Hafsa." Then 'Umar went on narrating the Hadith
and said, "I and an Ansari neighbor of mine from
Bani Umaiyya bin Zaid who used to live in
Awali-al-Medina, used to visit the Prophet in
turn. He used to go one day and I another day.
When I went, I would bring him the news of
what had happened that day regarding the Divine
Inspiration and other things, and when he went,
he used to do the same for me. We, the people
of Quraish used to have the upper hand over our
wives, but when we came to the Ansar, we
found that their women had the upper hand over
their men, so our women also started learning the
ways of the Ansari women. I shouted at my wife
and she retorted against me and I disliked that
she should answer me back. She said to me,
'Why are you so surprised at my answering you
back? By Allah, the wives of the Prophet answer
him back and some of them may leave (does not
speak to) him throughout the day till the night.'
The (talk) scared me and I said to her, 'Whoever
has done so will be ruined!' Then I proceeded
after dressing myself, and entered upon Hafsa
and said to her, 'Does anyone of you keep the

Prophet angry till night?' She said, 'Yes.' I said,

'You are a ruined losing person! Don't you fear
that Allah may get angry for the anger of Allah's
Apostle and thus you will be ruined? So do not
ask more from the Prophet and do not answer
him back and do not give up talking to him. Ask
me whatever you need and do not be tempted to

imitate your neighbor (i.e., 'Aisha) in her manners

for she is more charming than you and more
beloved to the Prophet ." Umar added,"At that
time a talk was circulating among us that (the
tribe of) Ghassan were preparing their horses to
invade us. My Ansari companion, on the day of

his turn, went (to the town) and returned to us at

night and knocked at my door violently and
asked if I was there. I became horrified and
came out to him. He said, 'Today a great thing
has happened.' I asked, 'What is it? Have (the
people of) Ghassan come?' He said, 'No, but
(What has happened) is greater and more

horrifying than that: Allah's Apostle; has divorced

his wives. 'Umar added, "The Prophet kept away
from his wives and I said "Hafsa is a ruined
loser.' I had already thought that most probably
this (divorce) would happen in the near future.
So I dressed myself and offered the morning
prayer with the Prophet and then the Prophet;
entered an upper room and stayed there in
seclusion. I entered upon Hafsa and saw her
weeping. I asked, 'What makes you weep? Did I
not warn you about that? Did the Prophet
divorce you all?' She said, 'I do not know. There

he is retired alone in the upper room.' I came out

and sat near the pulpit and saw a group of
people sitting around it and some of them were

weeping. I sat with them for a while but could not

endure the situation, so I went to the upper room
where the Prophet; was and said to a black slave
of his, 'Will you get the permission (of the
Prophet ) for 'Umar (to enter)?' The slave went
in, talked to the Prophet about it and then
returned saying, 'I have spoken to the Prophet
and mentioned you but he kept quiet.' Then I
returned and sat with the group of people sitting

near the pulpit. but I could not bear the situation

and once again I said to the slave, 'Will you get
the permission for 'Umar?' He went in and
returned saying, 'I mentioned you to him but he
kept quiet.' So I returned again and sat with the

group of people sitting near the pulpit, but I could

not bear the situation, and so I went to the slave

and said, 'Will you get the permission for 'Umar?'

He went in and returned to me saying, 'I
mentioned you to him but he kept quiet.' When I
was leaving, behold! The slave called me, saying,
'The Prophet has given you permission.' Then I
entered upon Allah's Apostle and saw him Lying
on a bed made of stalks of date palm leaves and
there was no bedding between it and him. The
stalks left marks on his side and he was leaning

on a leather pillow stuffed with date-palm fires. I

greeted him and while still standing I said, 'O
Allah's Apostle! Have you divorced your wives?'
He looked at me and said, 'No.' I said, 'Allah
Akbar!' And then, while still standing, I said
chatting, 'Will you heed what I say, O Allah's
Apostle? We, the people of Quraish used to
have power over our women, but when we
arrived at Medina we found that the men (here)
were overpowered by their women.' The
Prophet smiled and then I said to him, 'Will you
heed what I say, O Allah's Apostle? I entered
upon Hafsa and said to her, "Do not be tempted
to imitate your companion ('Aisha), for she is
more charming than you and more beloved to the
Prophet.' " The Prophet smiled for a second
time. When I saw him smiling, I sat down. Then I
looked around his house, and by Allah, I could
not see anything of importance in his house

except three hides, so I said, 'O Allah's Apostle!

Invoke Allah to make your followers rich, for the
Persians and the Romans have been made
prosperous and they have been given (the
pleasures of the world), although they do not
worship Allah.' Thereupon the Prophet sat up as
he was reclining. and said, 'Are you of such an
opinion, O the son of Al-Khattab? These are the
people who have received the rewards for their
good deeds in this world.' I said, 'O Allah's
Apostle! Ask Allah to forgive me.' Then the
Prophet kept away from his wives for
twenty-nine days because of the story which
Hafsa had disclosed to 'Aisha. The Prophet had
said, 'I will not enter upon them (my wives) for
one month,' because of his anger towards them,
when Allah had admonished him. So, when
twenty nine days had passed, the Prophet first
entered upon 'Aisha. 'Aisha said to him, 'O
Allah's Apostle! You had sworn that you would
not enter upon us for one month, but now only
twenty-nine days have passed, for I have been
counting them one by one.' The Prophet said,
'The (present) month is of twenty nine days.'
'Aisha added, 'Then Allah revealed the Verses of
the option. (2) And out of all his-wives he asked

me first, and I chose him.' Then he gave option to

his other wives and they said what 'Aisha had

said . " (1) The Prophet, ' had decided to abstain

from eating a certain kind of food because of a
certain event, so Allah blamed him for doing so.
Some of his wives were the cause of him taking
that decision, therefore he deserted them for one
month. See Quran: (66.4)

charitable purposes) without being ordered by

Fire and saw that the majority of those who
entered it were women."
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 125:
Narrated 'Abdullah bin Abbas:
During the lifetime of Allah's Apostle, the sun
eclipsed. Allah's Apostle offered the prayer of
(the) eclipse) and so did the people along with
him. He performed a long Qiyam (standing
posture) during which Surat-al-Baqara could
have been recited; then he performed a
pro-longed bowing, then raised his head and

stood for a long time which was slightly less than

that of the first Qiyam (and recited Qur'an). Then

he performed a prolonged bowing again but the
period was shorter than the period of the first
bowing, then he stood up and then prostrated.
Again he stood up, but this time the period of

standing was less than the first standing. Then he

performed a prolonged bowing but of a lesser

duration than the first, then he stood up again for

a long time but for a lesser duration than the first.

Then he performed a prolonged bowing but of
lesser duration than the first, and then he again
stood up, and then prostrated and then finished
his prayer. By then the sun eclipse had cleared.
The Prophet then said, "The sun and the moon
are two signs among the signs of Allah, and they
do not eclipse because of the death or birth of
someone, so when you observe the eclipse,
remember Allah (offer the eclipse prayer)." They
(the people) said, "O Allah's Apostle! We saw

you stretching your hand to take something at this

place of yours, then we saw you stepping
backward." He said, "I saw Paradise (or
Paradise was shown to me), and I stretched my
hand to pluck a bunch (of grapes), and had I
plucked it, you would have eaten of it as long as

this world exists. Then I saw the (Hell) Fire, and

I have never before, seen such a horrible sight as

that, and I saw that the majority of its dwellers
were women." The people asked, "O Allah's
Apostle! What is the reason for that?" He

replied, "Because of their ungratefulness." It was

said. "Do they disbelieve in Allah (are they
ungrateful to Allah)?" He replied, "They are not
thankful to their husbands and are ungrateful for
the favors done to them. Even if you do good to
one of them all your life, when she seems some
harshness from you, she will say, "I have never
seen any good from you.' "
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 126:

Narrated 'Abdullah bin 'Amr bin Al-'As:
Allah's Apostle said, "O 'Abdullah! Have I not

been formed that you fast all the day and stand in

prayer all night?" I said, "Yes, O Allah's
Apostle!" He said, "Do not do that! Observe the
fast sometimes and also leave them (the fast) at
other times; stand up for the prayer at night and
also sleep at night. Your body has a right over
you, your eyes have a right over you and your
wife has a right over you."

you are guardians and are responsible for your
wards."

who was in his upper room. He greeted him but
nobody answered. He greeted again, but nobody
answered. Then the gatekeeper called him and
he entered upon the Prophet, and asked, "Have
you divorced your wives?" The Prophet, said,

for one month." So the Prophet stayed away
(from his wives) for twenty nine days and then

her wear false hair." The Prophet said, "No,
(don't do that) for Allah sends His curses upon

such ladies who lengthen their hair artificially."

regarding the Verse: 'If a wife fears cruelty or
desertion on her husband's part ...') (4.128) It

want to keep her with him any longer, but wants
to divorce her and marry some other lady, so she
says to him: 'Keep me and do not divorce me,
and then marry another woman, and you may
neither spend on me, nor sleep with me.' This is
indicated by the Statement of Allah: 'There is no
blame on them if they arrange an amicable
settlement between them both, and (such)
settlement is better." (4.128)

"There is no soul that is destined to exist but will

come into existence, till the Day of Resurrection."

Volume 7, Book 62, Number 138:
Narrated al-Qasim:
Aisha said that whenever the Prophet intended to
go on a journey, he drew lots among his wives
(so as to take one of them along with him).
During one of his journeys the lot fell on 'Aisha
and Hafsa. When night fell the Prophet would
ride beside 'Aisha and talk with her. One night
Hafsa said to 'Aisha, "Won't you ride my camel
tonight and I ride yours, so that you may see
(me) and I see (you) (in new situation)?" 'Aisha
said, "Yes, (I agree.)" So 'Aisha rode, and then
the Prophet came towards 'Aisha's camel on
which Hafsa was riding. He greeted Hafsa and
then proceeded (beside her) till they dismounted
(on the way). 'Aisha missed him, and so, when
they dismounted, she put her legs in the Idhkhir
and said, "O Lord (Allah)! Send a scorpion or a
snake to bite me for I am not to blame him (the
Prophet ).
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 139:
Narrated 'Aisha:
Sada bint Zam'a gave up her turn to me ('Aisha),
and so the Prophet used to give me ('Aisha) both
my day and the day of Sad;
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 140:
Narrated Anas:

The tradition, (of the Prophet) is that if someone

marries a virgin and he has already a matron wife

(with him), then he should stay with the virgin for

seven days; and if someone marries a matron
(and he has already a virgin wife with him) then
he should stay with her for three days.
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 141:
Narrated Anas:
It is the Prophet's tradition that if someone
marries a virgin and he has already a matron wife
then he should stay for seven days with her (the
virgin) and then by turns; and if someone marries
a matron and he has already a virgin wife then he
should stay with her (the matron) for three days,
and then by turns.
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 142:
Narrated Anas bin Malik:
The Prophet used to pass by (have sexual

relation with) all his wives in one night, and at that

time he had nine wives.
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 143:
Narrated 'Aisha:
Whenever Allah's Apostle finished his 'Asr
prayer, he would enter upon his wives and stay
with one of them. One day he went to Hafsa and
stayed with her longer than usual.
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 144:
Narrated 'Aisha:

that during his fatal ailment, Allah's Apostle, used

to ask his wives, "Where shall I stay tomorrow?
Where shall I stay tomorrow?" He was looking
forward to Aisha's turn. So all his wives allowed
him to stay where he wished, and he stayed at

'Aisha's house till he died there. 'Aisha added: He

died on the day of my usual turn at my house.
Allah took him unto Him while his head was
between my chest and my neck and his saliva
was mixed with my saliva.
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 145:
Narrated Ibn 'Abbas:
that 'Umar entered upon Hafsa and said, "O my
daughter! Do not be misled by the manners of
her who is proud of her beauty because of the
love of Allah's Apostle for her." By 'her' he
meant 'Aisha. 'Umar added, "Then I told that to
Allah's Apostle and he smiled (on hearing that)."
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 146:
Narrated Asma:
Some lady said, "O Allah's Apostle! My husband

has another wife, so it is sinful of me to claim that

he has given me what he has not given me (in
order to tease her)?" Allah's Apostle said, The
one who pretends that he has been given what he
has not been given, is just like the (false) one
who wears two garments of falsehood."
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 147:
Narrated 'Abdullah bin Masud:
The Prophet, said, "There is none having a
greater sense of Ghira than Allah. And for that

He has forbidden the doing of evil actions (illegal

sexual intercourse etc.) There is none who likes
to be praised more than Allah does."
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 148:
Narrated 'Aisha:
Allah's Apostle said, "O followers of
Muhammad! There is none, who has a greater
sense of Ghira (self-respect) than Allah, so He
has forbidden that His slave commits illegal

sexual intercourse or His slave girl commits illegal

sexual intercourse. O followers of Muhammad! If
you but knew what I know, you would laugh less
and weep more!"
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 149:
Narrated Asma':
I heard Allah's Apostle saying, "There is nothing
(none) having a greater sense of Ghira
(self-respect) than Allah." And narrated Abu
Huraira that he heard the Prophet (saying the
same).
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 150:
Narrated Abu Huraira:
The Prophet; said, "Allah has a sense of Ghira,
and Allah's sense of Ghira is provoked when a
believer does something which Allah has
prohibited."
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 151:
Narrated Asma' bint Abu Bakr:
When Az-Zubair married me, he had no real
property or any slave or anything else except a
camel which drew water from the well, and his
horse. I used to feed his horse with fodder and
drew water and sew the bucket for drawing it,
and prepare the dough, but I did not know how
to bake bread. So our Ansari neighbors used to
bake bread for me, and they were honorable
ladies. I used to carry the date stones on my
head from Zubair's land given to him by Allah's
Apostle and this land was two third Farsakh
(about two miles) from my house. One day,
while I was coming with the date stones on my
head, I met Allah's Apostle along with some
Ansari people. He called me and then, (directing
his camel to kneel down) said, "Ikh! Ikh!" so as
to make me ride behind him (on his camel). I felt
shy to travel with the men and remembered
Az-Zubair and his sense of Ghira, as he was one
of those people who had the greatest sense of

Ghira. Allah's Apostle noticed that I felt shy, so

he proceeded. I came to Az-Zubair and said, "I
met Allah's Apostle while I was carrying a load
of date stones on my head, and he had some
companions with him. He made his camel kneel
down so that I might ride, but I felt shy in his
presence and remembered your sense of Ghira
(See the glossary). On that Az-Zubair said, "By
Allah, your carrying the date stones (and you
being seen by the Prophet in such a state) is
more shameful to me than your riding with him."
(I continued serving in this way) till Abu Bakr
sent me a servant to look after the horse,
whereupon I felt as if he had set me free.
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 152:
Narrated Anas:
While the Prophet was in the house of one of his
wives, one of the mothers of the believers sent a
meal in a dish. The wife at whose house the
Prophet was, struck the hand of the servant,
causing the dish to fall and break. The Prophet
gathered the broken pieces of the dish and then
started collecting on them the food which had
been in the dish and said, "Your mother (my
wife) felt jealous." Then he detained the servant
till a (sound) dish was brought from the wife at
whose house he was. He gave the sound dish to
the wife whose dish had been broken and kept
the broken one at the house where it had been
broken.
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 153:
Narrated Jabir:
The Prophet, said, "I entered Paradise and saw a
palace and asked whose palace is this? They (the
Angels) said, "This palace belongs to 'Umar bin
Al-Khattab.' I intended to enter it, and nothing
stopped me except my knowledge about your
sense of Ghira (self-respect (O Umar)." 'Umar
said, "O Allah's Apostle! Let my father and
mother be sacrificed for you! O Allah's Prophet!
How dare I think of my Ghira (self-respect)
being offended by you?"
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 154:
Narrated Abu Huraira:
While we were sitting with Allah's Apostle, (he)
Allah's Apostle said, "While I was sleeping, I
saw a woman performing ablution beside a
palace. I asked, "Whose palace is this?' It was
said, 'This palace belongs to 'Umar.' Then I
remembered his sense of Ghira and returned."
On that 'Umar started weeping in that gathering
and said, "O Allah's Apostle! How dare I think
of my self-respect being offended by you?"
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 155:
Narrated Aisha:
That Allah's Apostle said to her, "I you are
pleased with me or angry with me." I said,
"Whence do you know that?" He said, "When
you are pleased with me, you say, 'No, by the
Lord of Muhammad,' but when you are angry
with me, then you say, 'No, by the Lord of
Abraham.' " Thereupon I said, "Yes (you are
right), but by Allah, O Allah's Apostle, I leave
nothing but your name."
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 156:
Narrated 'Aisha:
I never felt so jealous of any wife of Allah's
Apostle as I did of Khadija because Allah's
Apostle used to remember and praise her too
often and because it was revealed to Allah's
Apostle that he should give her (Khadija) the
glad tidings of her having a palace of Qasab in
Paradise .
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 157:
Narrated Al-Miswar bin Makhrama:
I heard Allah's Apostle who was on the pulpit,
saying, "Banu Hisham bin Al-Mughira have
requested me to allow them to marry their
daughter to Ali bin Abu Talib, but I don't give
permission, and will not give permission unless
'Ali bin Abi Talib divorces my daughter in order
to marry their daughter, because Fatima is a part
of my body, and I hate what she hates to see,
and what hurts her, hurts me."
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 158:
Narrated Anas:

I will narrate to you a Habith I heard from Allah's

Apostle and none other than I will tell you of it. I

heard Allah's Apostle saying, "From among the
portents of the Hour are the following: Religious
knowledge will be taken away; General
ignorance (in religious matters) will increase;

illegal Sexual intercourse will prevail: Drinking of

alcoholic drinks will prevail. Men will decrease in

number, and women will increase in number, so
much so that fifty women will be looked after by
one man."
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 159:
Narrated 'Uqba bin 'Amir:
Allah's Apostle said, "Beware of entering upon
the ladies." A man from the Ansar said, "Allah's
Apostle! What about Al-Hamu the in-laws of the
wife (the brothers of her husband or his nephews
etc.)?" The Prophet replied: The in-laws of the
wife are death itself.
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 160:
Narrated Ibn 'Abbas :
The Prophet said, "No man should stay with a
lady in seclusion except in the presence of a
Dhu-Muhram." A man stood up and said, "O
Allah's Apostle! My wife has gone out intending
to perform the Hajj and I have been enrolled (in
the army) for such-and-such campaign." The
Prophet said, "Return and perform the Hajj with
your wife."
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 161:
Narrated Anas bin Malik:
An Ansari woman came to the Prophet and he
took her aside and said (to her). "By Allah, you
(Ansar) are the most beloved people to me."
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 162:
Narrated Um Salama:
that while the Prophet was with her, there was an
effeminate man in the house. The effeminate man
said to Um Salama's brother, 'Abdullah bin Abi
Umaiyya, "If Allah should make you conquer
Ta'if tomorrow, I recommend that you take the
daughter of Ghailan (in marriage) for (she is so

fat) that she shows four folds of flesh when facing

you and eight when she turns her back."
Thereupon the Prophet said (to us), "This
(effeminate man) should not enter upon you
(anymore)."
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 163:
Narrated 'Aisha:
The Prophet was screening me with his Rida'
(garment covering the upper part of the body)
while I was looking at the Ethiopians who were
playing in the courtyard of the mosque. (I
continued watching) till I was satisfied. So you
may deduce from this event how a little girl (who
has not reached the age of puberty) who is eager
to enjoy amusement should be treated in this
respect.
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 164:
Narrated 'Aisha:
Once Sada bint Zam'a went out at night for some
need, and 'Umar saw her, and recognizing her,
he said (to her), "By Allah, O Sada! You cannot
hide yourself from us." So she returned to the
Prophet and mentioned that to him while he was
sitting in my dwelling taking his supper and
holding a bone covered with meat in his hand.
Then the Divine Inspiration was revealed to him
and when that state was over, he (the Prophet
was saying: "O women! You have been allowed
by Allah to go out for your needs."
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 165:
Narrated Salim's father:
The Prophet said, "If the wife of anyone of you
asks permission to go to the mosque, he should
not forbid her."
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 166:
Narrated 'Aisha:
My foster uncle came and asked permission (to
enter) but I refused to admit him till I asked
Allah's Apostle about that. He said, "He is your

uncle, so allow him to come in." I said, "O Allah's

Apostle! I have been suckled by a woman and
not by a man." Allah's Apostle said, "He is your
uncle, so let him enter upon you." And that
happened after the order of Al-Hijab
(compulsory veiling) was revealed. All things
which become unlawful because of blood
relations are unlawful because of the
corresponding foster suckling relations.
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 167:
Narrated 'Abdullah bin Mas'ud:
The Prophet said, "A woman should not look at
or touch another woman to describe her to her
husband in such a way as if he was actually
looking at her."
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 168:
Narrated 'Abdullah:
The Prophet said, "A woman should not look at
or touch another woman to describe her to her
husband in such a way as if he was actually
looking at her."
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 169:
Narrated Abu Huraira:
(The Prophet) Solomon son of (the Prophet)
David said, "Tonight I will go round (i.e. have
sexual relations with) one hundred women (my
wives) everyone of whom will deliver a male

child who will fight in Allah's Cause." On that an

Angel said to him, "Say: 'If Allah will.' " But
Solomon did not say it and forgot to say it. Then
he had sexual relations with them but none of
them delivered any child except one who
delivered a half person. The Prophet said, "If
Solomon had said: 'If Allah will,' Allah would
have fulfilled his (above) desire and that saying
would have made him more hopeful."
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 170:
Narrated Jabir bin Abdullah:
The Prophet disliked that one should go to one's
family at night (on returning from a journey).
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 171:
Narrated Jabir bin 'Abdullah:
Allah's Apostle said, "When anyone of you is
away from his house for a long time, he should
not return to his family at night."
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 172:
Narrated Jabir:
I was with Allah's Apostle in a Ghazwa, and
when we returned, I wanted to hurry, while riding
a slow camel. A rider came behind me. I looked
back and saw that the rider was Allah's Apostle .
He said (to me), "What makes you in such a
hurry?" I replied, "I am newly married." He said,
"Did you marry a virgin or a matron?" I replied,
"(Not a virgin but) a matron." He said, "Why
didn't you marry a young girl with whom you
could play and who could play with you?" Then
when we approached (Medina) and were going

to enter (it), the Prophet said, "Wait till you enter

(your homes) at night (in the first part of the
night) so that the ladies with unkempt hair may
comb their hair, and those whose husbands have
been absent (for a long time) may shave their
pubic hair." (The sub-narrator, Hashim said: A
reliable narrator told me that the Prophet added
in this Hadith: "(Seek to beget) children!
Children, O Jabir!")
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 173:
Narrated Jabir bin 'Abdullah:
The Prophet said, "If you enter (your town) at
night (after coming from a journey), do not enter
upon your family till the woman whose husband
was absent (from the house) shaves her pubic
hair and the woman with unkempt hair, combs

her hair" Allah's Apostle further said, "(O Jabir!)

Seek to have offspring, seek to have offspring!"
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 174:
Narrated Jabir bin 'Abdullah:
We were with the Prophet in Ghazwa, and when
we returned and approached Medina, I wanted
to hurry while riding a slow camel. A rider
overtook me and pricked my camel with a spear
which he had, whereupon my camel started
running as fast as any other fast camel you may
see. I looked back, and behold, the rider was

Allah's Apostle . I said, "O Allah's Apostle! I am

newly married " He asked, "Have you got

married?" I replied, "Yes." He said, "A virgin or a

matron?" I replied, "(Not a virgin) but a matron"
He said, "Why didn't you marry a young girl so
that you could play with her and she with you?"
When we reached (near Medina) and were going

to enter it, the Prophet said, "Wait till you enter

your home early in the night so that the lady
whose hair is unkempt may comb her hair and
that the lady whose husband has been away may
shave her pubic hair."
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 175:
Narrated Abu Hazim:
The people differed about the type of treatment
which had been given to Allah's Apostle on the
day (of the battle) of Uhud. So they asked Sahl
bin Sad As-Sa'id who was the only surviving
Companion (of the Prophet) at Medina. He
replied, "Nobody Is left at Medina who knows it
better than I. Fatima was washing the blood off

his face and 'Ali was bringing water in his shield,

and then a mat of date-palm leaves was burnt
and (the ash) was inserted into the wound."
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 176:
Narrated 'Abdur-Rahman bin 'Abis:
I heard Ibn 'Abbas answering a man who asked
him, "Did you attend the prayer of 'Id al Adha or
'Id-al-Fitr with Allah's Apostle?" Ibn 'Abbas
replied, "Yes, and had it not been for my close

relationship with him, I could not have offered it."

(That was because of his young age). Ibn 'Abbas

further said, Allah's Apostle went out and offered

the Id prayer and then delivered the sermon." Ibn
'Abbas did not mention anything about the
Adhan (the call for prayer) or the Iqama. He
added, "Then the Prophet went to the women
and instructed them and gave them religious
advice and ordered them to give alms and I saw
them reaching out (their hands to) their ears and
necks (to take off the earrings and necklaces,
etc.) and throwing (it) towards Bilal. Then the
Prophet returned with Bilal to his house . "
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 177:
Narrated 'Aisha:
Abu Bakr admonished me and poked me with
his hands in the flank, and nothing stopped me
from moving at that time except the position of
Allah's Apostle whose head was on my thigh.
Translation of Sahih Bukhari, Book 63:
Divorce
Volume 7, Book 63, Number 178:
Narrated 'Abdullah bin 'Umar:
that he had divorced his wife while she was

menstruating during the lifetime of Allah's Apostle

. 'Umar bin Al-Khattab asked Allah's Apostle
about that. Allah's Apostle said, "Order him
(your son) to take her back and keep her till she
is clean and then to wait till she gets her next
period and becomes clean again, whereupon, if
he wishes to keep her, he can do so, and if he
wishes to divorce her he can divorce her before

having sexual intercourse with her; and that is the

prescribed period which Allah has fixed for the
women meant to be divorced."
Volume 7, Book 63, Number 179:
Narrated Anas bin Sirin:
Ibn 'Umar said: "I divorced my wife while she
was menstruating. 'Umar mentioned that to the
Prophet . The Prophet said, (to my father), "Let
your son take her back." I asked (Ibn 'Umar), "Is
such a divorce counted (i.e. as one legal
divorce)?" Ibn 'Umar said, "Of course." Narrated
Yunus bin Jubair: Ibn 'Umar said, "The Prophet
said to 'Umar, 'Order him (Ibn 'Umar) to take
her back.' " I asked, "Is such a divorce counted
(as one legal divorce)?" Ibn 'Umar said, "What
do you think if someone becomes helpless and
foolish?"
Volume 7, Book 63, Number 180:
Narrated Ibn 'Umar:
(Divorcing my wife during her menses) was
counted as one legal divorce.
Volume 7, Book 63, Number 181:
Narrated Al-Awza:
I asked Az-Zuhri, "Which of the wives of the
Prophet sought refuge with Allah from him?" He
said "I was told by 'Ursa that 'Aisha said, 'When
the daughter of Al-Jaun was brought to Allah's
Apostle (as his bride) and he went near her, she
said, "I seek refuge with Allah from you." He
said, "You have sought refuge with The Great;
return to your family."
Volume 7, Book 63, Number 182:
Narrated Abu Usaid:
We went out with the Prophet to a garden called
Ash-Shaut till we reached two walls between
which we sat down. The Prophet said, "Sit here,"
and went in (the garden). The Jauniyya (a lady
from Bani Jaun) had been brought and lodged in
a house in a date-palm garden in the home of
Umaima bint An-Nu'man bin Sharahil, and her
wet nurse was with her. When the Prophet
entered upon her, he said to her, "Give me

yourself (in marriage) as a gift." She said, "Can a

princess give herself in marriage to an ordinary
man?" The Prophet raised his hand to pat her so
that she might become tranquil. She said, "I seek
refuge with Allah from you." He said, "You have
sought refuge with One Who gives refuge. Then
the Prophet came out to us and said, "O Abu
Usaid! Give her two white linen dresses to wear
and let her go back to her family." Narrated Sahl
and Abu Usaid: The Prophet married Umaima
bint Sharahil, and when she was brought to him,
he stretched his hand towards her. It seemed that
she disliked that, whereupon the Prophet
ordered Abu Usaid to prepare her and to
provide her with two white linen dresses. (See
Hadith No. 541).
Volume 7, Book 63, Number 183:
Narrated Sahl bin Sad:
similarly as above (182).
Volume 7, Book 63, Number 184:
Narrated Abi Ghallab Yunus bin Jubair:
I asked Ibn 'Umar,"(What is said regarding) a
man divorces his wife during her period?" He
said, "Do you know Ibn 'Umar? Ibn 'Umar
divorced his wife while she was menstruating.
'Umar then went to the Prophet and mentioned
that to him. The Prophet ordered him to take her
back and when she became clean, he could
divorce her if he wanted." I asked (Ibn 'Umar),
"Was that divorce counted as one legal divorce?"
He said, "If one becomes helpless and foolish
(will he be excused? Of course not). "
Volume 7, Book 63, Number 185:
Narrated Sahl bin Sad As-Sa'idi:
Uwaimir Al-'Ajlani came to 'Asim bin Adi
Al-Ansari and asked, "O 'Asim! Tell me, if a man
sees his wife with another man, should he kill
him, whereupon you would kill him in Qisas, or
what should he do? O 'Asim! Please ask Allah's
Apostle about that." 'Asim asked Allah's Apostle

about that. Allah's Apostle disliked that question

and considered it disgraceful. What 'Asim heard
from Allah's Apostle was hard on him. When he
returned to his family, 'Uwaimir came to him and
said "O 'Asim! What did Allah's Apostle say to
you?" 'Asim said, "You never bring me any good.
Allah's Apostle disliked to hear the problem
which I asked him about." 'Uwaimir said, "By
Allah, I will not leave the matter till I ask him
about it." So 'Uwaimir proceeded till he came to
Allah's Apostle who was in the midst of the
people and said, "O Allah's Apostle! If a man
finds with his wife another man, should he kill
him, whereupon you would kill him (in Qisas): or
otherwise, what should he do?" Allah's Apostle
said, "Allah has revealed something concerning
the question of you and your wife. Go and bring
her here." So they both carried out the judgment
of Lian, while I was present among the people
(as a witness). When both of them had finished,
'Uwaimir said, "O Allah's Apostle! If I should
now keep my wife with me, then I have told a
lie". Then he pronounced his decision to divorce
her thrice before Allah's Apostle ordered him to
do so. (Ibn Shihab said, "That was the tradition

for all those who are involved in a case of Lian."

Volume 7, Book 63, Number 186:
Narrated 'Aisha:
The wife of Rifa'a Al-Qurazi came to Allah's
Apostle and said, "O Allah's Apostle! Rifa'a
divorced me irrevocably. After him I married
'Abdur-Rahman bin Az-Zubair Al-Qurazi who
proved to be impotent." Allah's Apostle said to
her, "Perhaps you want to return to Rifa'a? Nay
(you cannot return to Rifa'a) until you and
'Abdur-Rahman consummate your marriage."
Volume 7, Book 63, Number 187:
Narrated 'Aisha:
A man divorced his wife thrice (by expressing his
decision to divorce her thrice), then she married
another man who also divorced her. The Prophet
was asked if she could legally marry the first
husband (or not). The Prophet replied, "No, she
cannot marry the first husband unless the second
husband consummates his marriage with her, just
as the first husband had done."
Volume 7, Book 63, Number 188:
Narrated 'Aisha:
Allah's Apostle gave us the option (to remain
with him or to be divorced) and we selected
Allah and His Apostle . So, giving us that option
was not regarded as divorce.
Volume 7, Book 63, Number 189:
Narrated Musruq:
I asked 'Aisha about the option: She said, "The
Prophet gave us the option. Do you think that
option was considered as a divorce?" I said, "It
matters little to me if I give my wife the option
once or a hundred times after she has chosen
me."
Volume 7, Book 63, Number 190:
Narrated 'Aisha:
A man divorced his wife and she married another
man who proved to be impotent and divorced
her. She could not get her satisfaction from him,
and after a while he divorced her. Then she came
to the Prophet and said, "O Allah's Apostle! My
first husband divorced me and then I married
another man who entered upon me to
consummate his marriage but he proved to be
impotent and did not approach me except once
during which he benefited nothing from me. Can I
remarry my first husband in this case?" Allah's
Apostle said, "It is unlawful to marry your first
husband till the other husband consummates his
marriage with you."
Volume 7, Book 63, Number 191:
Narrated Said bin Jubair:
that he heard Ibn 'Abbas saying, "If a man makes
his wife unlawful for him, it does not mean that
she is divorced." He added, "Indeed in the
Apostle of Allah , you have a good example to
follow."
Volume 7, Book 63, Number 192:
Narrated 'Ubaid bin 'Umar:
I heard 'Aisha saying, "The Prophet used to stay
for a long while with Zanab bint Jahsh and drink
honey at her house. So Hafsa and I decided that
if the Prophet came to anyone of us, she should
say him, "I detect the smell of Maghafir (a nasty
smelling gum) in you. Have you eaten Maghafir?'
" So the Prophet visited one of them and she said
to him similarly. The Prophet said, "Never mind,
I have taken some honey at the house of Zainab

bint Jahsh, but I shall never drink of it anymore."

So there was revealed: 'O Prophet ! Why do you
ban (for you) that which Allah has made lawful

for you . . . If you two (wives of Prophet) turn in

repentance to Allah,' (66.1-4) addressing Aisha
and Hafsa. 'When the Prophet disclosed a matter
in confidence to some of his wives.' (66.3)
namely his saying: But I have taken some honey."
Volume 7, Book 63, Number 193:
Narrated 'Aisha:
Allah's Apostle was fond of honey and sweet
edible things and (it was his habit) that after

finishing the 'Asr prayer he would visit his wives

and stay with one of them at that time. Once he
went to Hafsa, the daughter of 'Umar and stayed
with her more than usual. I got jealous and asked

the reason for that. I was told that a lady of her

folk had given her a skin filled with honey as a
present, and that she made a syrup from it and
gave it to the Prophet to drink (and that was the
reason for the delay). I said, "By Allah we will
play a trick on him (to prevent him from doing
so)." So I said to Sada bint Zam'a "The Prophet
will approach you, and when he comes near you,
say: 'Have you taken Maghafir (a bad-smelling
gum)?' He will say, 'No.' Then say to him: 'Then
what is this bad smell which i smell from you?'
He will say to you, 'Hafsa made me drink honey
syrup.' Then say: Perhaps the bees of that honey
had sucked the juice of the tree of Al-'Urfut.' I
shall also say the same. O you, Safiyya, say the
same." Later Sada said, "By Allah, as soon as he
(the Prophet ) stood at the door, I was about to
say to him what you had ordered me to say
because I was afraid of you." So when the
Prophet came near Sada, she said to him, "O
Allah's Apostle! Have you taken Maghafir?" He

said, "No." She said. "Then what is this bad smell

which I detect on you?" He said, "Hafsa made
me drink honey syrup." She said, "Perhaps its
bees had sucked the juice of Al-'Urfut tree."
When he came to me, I also said the same, and
when he went to Safiyya, she also said the same.
And when the Prophet again went to Hafsa, she

said, 'O Allah's Apostle! Shall I give you more of

that drink?" He said, "I am not in need of it."
Sada said, "By Allah, we deprived him (of it)." I
said to her, "Keep quiet." '
Volume 7, Book 63, Number 194:
Narrated Abu Huraira:
The Prophet said, "Allah has forgiven my
followers the evil thoughts that occur to their
minds, as long as such thoughts are not put into
action or uttered." And Qatada said, "If someone
divorces his wife just in his mind, such an
unuttered divorce has no effect.:
Volume 7, Book 63, Number 195:
Narrated Jabir:
A man from the tribe of Bani Aslam came to the
Prophet while he was in the mosque and said, "I
have committed illegal sexual intercourse." The
Prophet turned his face to the other side. The
man turned towards the side towards which the
Prophet had turned his face, and gave four
witnesses against himself. On that the Prophet
called him and said, "Are you insane?" (He
added), "Are you married?" The man said, 'Yes."
On that the Prophet ordered him to be stoned to
the death in the Musalla (a praying place). When
the stones hit him with their sharp edges and he
fled, but he was caught at Al-Harra and then
killed

Narrated Abu Huraira:
A man from Bani Aslam came to Allah's Apostle
while he was in the mosque and called (the
Prophet ) saying, "O Allah's Apostle! I have

committed illegal sexual intercourse." On that the

Prophet turned his face from him to the other
side, whereupon the man moved to the side
towards which the Prophet had turned his face,
and said, "O Allah's Apostle! I have committed

illegal sexual intercourse." The Prophet turned his

face (from him) to the other side whereupon the
man moved to the side towards which the
Prophet had turned his face, and repeated his
statement. The Prophet turned his face (from
him) to the other side again. The man moved
again (and repeated his statement) for the fourth
time. So when the man had given witness four
times against himself, the Prophet called him and
said, "Are you insane?" He replied, "No." The
Prophet then said (to his companions), "Go and
stone him to death." The man was a married one.
Jabir bin 'Abdullah Al-Ansari said: I was one of
those who stoned him. We stoned him at the
Musalla ('Id praying place) in Medina. When the

we caught him at Al-Harra and stoned him till he
died.

and said, "O Allah's Apostle! I do not blame

Thabit for defects in his character or his religion,

but I, being a Muslim, dislike to behave in

un-Islamic manner (if I remain with him)." On that

Allah's Apostle said (to her), "Will you give back

the garden which your husband has given you (as
Mahr)?" She said, "Yes." Then the Prophet said
to Thabit, "O Thabit! Accept your garden, and
divorce her once."

Qais came to Allah's Apostle and said, "O

Apostle said, "Will you return his garden to him?"

She said, "Yes."

Narrated Ibn 'Abbas:
The wife of Thabit bin Qais bin Shammas came
to the Prophet and said, "O Allah's Apostle! I do
not blame Thabit for any defects in his character
or his religion, but I am afraid that I (being a
Muslim) may become unthankful for Allah's

Blessings." On that, Allah's Apostle said (to her),

'Will you return his garden to him?" She said,
"Yes." So she returned his garden to him and the

Narrated 'Aisha:
(the wife of the Prophet) Three traditions were
established concerning situations in which Barra
was involved: When she was manumitted, she
was given the option to keep her husband or
leave him; Allah's Apostle said, "The wala is for
the one who manumits, Once Allah's Apostle
entered the house while some meat was being
cooked in a pot, but only bread and some soup
of the house were placed before, him. He said,
"Don't I see the pot containing meat?" They said,

"Yes, but that meat was given to Barira in charity

(by someone), and you do not eat what it given
in charity."The Prophet said "That meat is alms
for her, but for us it is a present."
Volume 7, Book 63, Number 203:
Narrated Ibn 'Abbas:
I saw him as a slave, (namely, Barira's husband).
Volume 7, Book 63, Number 204:
Narrated Ibn 'Abbas:
That was Mughith, the slave of Bani so-and-so,
i.e., Barira's husband as if I am now looking at
him following her (Barira) along the streets of
Medina.
Volume 7, Book 63, Number 205:
Narrated Ibn 'Abbas:
Barira's husband was a black slave called
Mughith, the slave of Bani so-and-so-- as if I am
seeing him now, walking behind her along the
streets of Medina.
Volume 7, Book 63, Number 206:
Narrated Ibn 'Abbas:
Barira's husband was a slave called Mughith, as
if I am seeing him now, going behind Barira and
weeping with his tears flowing down his beard.
The Prophet said to 'Abbas, "O 'Abbas ! are you
not astonished at the love of Mughith for Barira
and the hatred of Barira for Mughith?" The
Prophet then said to Barira, "Why don't you
return to him?" She said, "O Allah's Apostle! Do
you order me to do so?" He said, "No, I only

intercede for him." She said, "I am not in need of

him."
Volume 7, Book 63, Number 207:
Narrated Al-Aswad:
Aisha intended to buy Barira, but her masters
stipulated that her wala wound be for them.
Aisha mentioned that to the Prophet who said (to

'Aisha), "Buy and manumit her, for the wala is for

the one who manumits." Once some me; was
brought to the Prophet and was said, "This meat
was given in charity to Barira. " The Prophet
said, "It an object of charity for Barira and
present for us."
Volume 7, Book 63, Number 208:
Narrated Adam:
Shu'ba relate the same Hadith and added: Barira
was given the option regarding her husband
Volume 7, Book 63, Number 209:
Narrated Nafi':
Whenever Ibn 'Umar was asked about marrying
a Christian lady or a Jewess, he would say:
"Allah has made it unlawful for the believers to
marry ladies who ascribe partners in worship to
Allah, and I do not know of a greater thing, as
regards to ascribing partners in worship, etc. to

Allah, than that a lady should say that Jesus is her

Lord although he is just one of Allah's slaves."
Volume 7, Book 63, Number 210:
Narrated Ibn 'Abbas:
The pagans were of two kinds as regards their
relationship to the Prophet and the Believers.
Some of them were those with whom the
Prophet was at war and used to fight against, and

they used to fight him; the others were those with

whom the Prophet made a treaty, and neither did

the Prophet fight them, nor did they fight him. If a

lady from the first group of pagans emigrated
towards the Muslims, her hand would not be
asked in marriage unless she got the menses and
then became clean. When she became clean, it

would be lawful for her to get married, and if her

husband emigrated too before she got married,
then she would be returned to him. If any slave
or female slave emigrated from them to the
Muslims, then they would be considered free
persons (not slaves) and they would have the
same rights as given to other emigrants. The
narrator then mentioned about the pagans

involved with the Muslims in a treaty, the same as

occurs in Mujahid's narration. If a male slave or a

female slave emigrated from such pagans as had
made a treaty with the Muslims, they would not
be returned, but their prices would be paid (to
the pagans). Narrated Ibn 'Abbas: Qariba, the
daughter of Abi Umaiyya, was the wife of 'Umar
bin Al-Khattab. 'Umar divorced her and then
Mu'awiyya bin Abi Sufyan married her. Similarly,
Um Al-Hakam, the daughter of Abi Sufyan was
the wife of 'Iyad bin Ghanm Al-Fihri. He
divorced her and then 'Abdullah bin 'Uthman
Al-Thaqafi married her.
Volume 7, Book 63, Number 211:
Narrated 'Aisha:
(the wife of the Prophet) When believing women
came to the Prophet as emigrants, he used to test
them in accordance with the order of Allah. 'O
you who believe! When believing women come
to you as emigrants, examine them . . .' (60.10)
So if anyone of those believing women accepted
the above mentioned conditions, she accepted
the conditions of faith. When they agreed on
those conditions and confessed that with their
tongues, Allah's Apostle would say to them, "Go,
I have accepted your oath of allegiance (for
Islam). By Allah, and hand of Allah's Apostle
never touched the hand of any woman, but he

only used to take their pledge of allegiance orally.

By Allah, Allah's Apostle did not take the pledge
of allegiance of the women except in accordance
with what Allah had ordered him. When he
accepted their pledge of allegiance he would say
to them, "I have accepted your oath of
allegiance."
Volume 7, Book 63, Number 212:
Narrated Anas bin Malik:
Allah's Apostle took an oath that he would
abstain from his wives, and at that time his leg
had been sprained (dislocated). So he stayed in
the Mashruba (an attic room) of his for 29 days.
Then he came down, and they (the people) said,
"O Allah's Apostle! You took an oath to abstain
from your wives for one month." He said, "The
month is of twenty nine days."
Volume 7, Book 63, Number 213:
Narrated Nafi:
Ibn 'Umar used to say about the Ila (which Allah
defined (in the Holy Book), "If the period of Ila

expires, then the husband has either to retain his

wife in a handsome manner or to divorce her as
Allah has ordered." Ibn 'Umar added, "When the
period of four months has expired, the husband
should be put in prison so that he should divorce
his wife, but the divorce does not occur unless
the husband himself declares it. This has been
mentioned by 'Uthman, 'Ali, Abu Ad-Darda,
'Aisha and twelve other companions of the
Prophet ."
Volume 7, Book 63, Number 214:
Narrated Yazid:
(the Maula of Munba'ith) The Prophet was
asked regarding the case of a lost sheep. He

said, "You should take it, because it is for you, or

for your brother, or for the wolf." Then he was
asked about a lost camel. He got angry and his
face became red and he said (to the questioner),

"You have nothing to do with it; it has its feet and

its water container with it; it can go on drinking

water and eating trees till its owner meets it."
And then the Prophet was asked about a Luqata
(money found by somebody). He said,
"Remember and recognize its tying material and
its container, and make public announcement
about it for one year. If somebody comes and

identifies it (then give it to him), otherwise add it

to your property."
Volume 7, Book 63, Number 215:
Narrated Ibn Abbas:
Allah's Apostle performed the Tawaf (around the
Ka'ba while riding his camel, and every time he
reached the corner (of the Black Stone) he
pointed at it with his hand and said, "Allahu
Akbar." (Zainab said: The Prophet said, "An
opening has been made in the wall of Gog and
Magog like this and this," forming the number 90
(with his thumb and index finger).

Friday. If it happens that a Muslim is offering a
prayer and invoking Allah for some good at that
very moment, Allah will grant him his request."
(The sub-narrator placed the top of his finger on
the palm of the other hand between the middle
finger and the little one.)
Volume 7, Book 63, Number 216h:
Narrated Anas bin Malik:
During the lifetime of Allah's Apostle a Jew
attacked a girl and took some silver ornaments
she was wearing and crushed her head. Her
relative brought her to the Prophet while she was
in her last breaths, and she was unable to speak.
Allah's Apostle asked her, "Who has hit you?
So-and so?", mentioning somebody other than
her murderer. She moved her head, indicating
denial. The Prophet mentioned another person
other than the murderer, and she again moved
her head indicating denial. Then he asked, "Was

it so-and-so?", mentioning the name of her killer.

She nodded, agreeing. Then Allah's Apostle;
ordered that the head of that Jew be crushed
between two stones.

when the sun set, he said to a man, "Get down
and prepare a drink of Sawiq for me." The man

said, "O Allah's Apostle! Will you wait till it is

evening?" Allah's Apostle again said, "Get down
and prepare a drink of Sawiq." The man said, "O

Allah's Apostle! Will you wait till it is evening, for

it is still daytime. " The Prophet again said, "Get

down and prepare a drink of Sawiq." So the
third time the man got down and prepared a
drink of sawiq for him. Allah's Apostle drank
thereof and pointed with his hand towards the

East, saying, "When you see the night falling from

this side, then a fasting person should break his
fast."

Bila should not stop you from taking the
Suhur-meals for Bilal calls (or pronounces the
Adhan) so that the one who is offering the night
prayer should take a rest, and he does not
indicate the daybreak or dawn." The narrator,
Yazid, described (how dawn breaks) by
stretching out his hands and then separating them
wide apart.
Volume 7, Book 63, Number 219i:
Narrated Abu Huraira:
Allah's Apostle said, The example of a miser and
a generous person is like that of two persons
wearing iron cloaks from the breast upto the
neck When the generous person spends, the iron
cloak enlarges and spread over his skin so much

so that it covers his fingertips and obliterates his

tracks. As for the miser, as soon as he thinks of

spending every ring of the iron cloak sticks to its

place (against his body) and he tries to expand it,

but it does not expand. The Prophet pointed with
his hand towards his throat.
Volume 7, Book 63, Number 220:
Narrated Anas bin Malik:

Allah's Apostle said, "Shall I tell you of the best

families among the Ansar?" They (the people)
said, "Yes, O Allah's Apostle!" The Prophet
said, "The best are Banu- An-Najjar, and after
them are Banu 'Abdil Ash-hal, and after them are
Banu Al-Harith bin Al-Khazraj, and after them
are Banu Sa'ida." The Prophet then moved his
hand by closing his fingers and then opening them
like one throwing something, and then said,
"Anyhow, there is good in all the families of the
Ansar. "

and the Hour is like the distance between those
two fingers, i.e., very short.
Volume 7, Book 63, Number 222:

of Rabl'a and Muqar.

The Prophet said, "Is there a grey one among
them?' The man replied, "Yes." The Prophet
said, "Whence comes that?" He said, "May be it
is because of heredity." The Prophet said, "May
be your latest son has this color because of
heredity."
Volume 7, Book 63, Number 226:

Hilal bin Umaiyya accused his wife of illegal
sexual intercourse and came to the Prophet to
bear witness (against her), (taking the oath of
Lian). The Prophet was saying, "Allah knows
that either of you is a liar. Will anyone of you
repent (to Allah)?" Then the lady got up and gave
her witness.
Volume 7, Book 63, Number 228:
Narrated Sahl bin Sad As-Sa'idi:
'Uwaimir Al-Ajlani came to 'Asim bin Ad
Al-Ansari and said to him, "O 'Asim! Suppose a
man saw another man with his wife, would he kill
him whereupon you would kill him; or what
should he do? Please, O 'Asim, ask about this on
my behalf." 'Asim asked Allah's Apostle about it.
Allah's Apostle, disliked that question and
considered it disgraceful. What 'Asim heard from
Allah's Apostle was hard on him. When 'Asim
returned to his family, 'Uwaimir came to him and
said, "O 'Asim! What did Allah's Apostle. say to
you?" 'Asim said to 'Uwaimir, "You never bring
me any good. Allah's Apostle disliked the
problem which I asked him about." 'Uwaimir

said, "By Allah, I will not give up this matter until

I ask the Prophet about it." So 'Uwaimir
proceeded till he came to Allah's Apostle in the
midst of people, and said, "O Allah's Apostle! If
a man sees another man with his wife, would he
kill him, whereupon you would kill him, or what
should he do?" Allah's Apostle said, "Allah has
revealed some decree as regards you and your
wives case. Go and bring her." So they carried
out the process of Lian while I was present
among the people with Allah's Apostle. When
they had finished their Lian, 'Uwaimir said, "O
Allah's Apostle! If I should now keep her with
me as a wife, then I have told a lie." So he
divorced her thrice before Allah's Apostle
ordered him. (Ibn Shihab said: So divorce was

the tradition for all those who were involved in a

case of Lian.)
Volume 7, Book 63, Number 229:
Narrated Ibn Juraij:
Ibn Shihab informed me of Lian and the tradition

related to it, referring to the narration of Sahl bin

Sad, the brother of Bani Sa'idi He said, "An
Ansari man came to Allah's Apostle and said, 'O
Allah's Apostle! If a man saw another man with
his wife, should he kill him, or what should he
do?' So Allah revealed concerning his affair what

is mentioned in the Holy Quran about the affair of

those involved in a case of Lian. The Prophet
said, 'Allah has given His verdict regarding you
and your wife.' So they carried out Lian in the
mosque while I was present there. When they

had finished, the man said, "O Allah's Apostle! If

I should now keep her with me as a wife then I
have told a lie about her. Then he divorced her
thrice before Allah's Apostle ordered him, when
they had finished the Lian process. So he

divorced her in front of the Prophet ." Ibn Shihab

added, "After their case, it became a tradition

that a couple involved in a case of Lian should be

separated by divorce. That lady was pregnant
then, and later on her son was called by his
mother's name. The tradition concerning their
inheritance was that she would be his heir and he
would inherit of her property the share Allah had

prescribed for him." Ibn Shihab said that Sahl bin

Sad As'Saidi said that the Prophet said (in the

above narration), "If that lady delivers a small red

child like a lizard, then the lady has spoken the

truth and the man was a liar, but if she delivers a

child with black eyes and huge lips, then her
husband has spoken the truth." Then she

delivered it in the shape one would dislike (as it

proved her guilty).
Volume 7, Book 63, Number 230:
Narrated Al-Qasim bin Muhammad:
Ibn 'Abbas; said, "Once Lian was mentioned
before the Prophet whereupon 'Asim bin Adi
said something and went away. Then a man from
his tribe came to him, complaining that he had
found a man width his wife. 'Asim said, 'I have
not been put to task except for my statement
(about Lian).' 'Asim took the man to the Prophet
and the man told him of the state in which he had
found his wife. The man was pale, thin, and of
lank hair, while the other man whom he claimed
he had seen with his wife, was brown, fat and
had much flesh on his calves. The Prophet
invoked, saying, 'O Allah! Reveal the truth.' So
that lady delivered a child resembling the man
whom her husband had mentioned he had found
her with. The Prophet then made them carry out
Lian." Then a man from that gathering asked Ibn
'Abbas, "Was she the same lady regarding which

the Prophet had said, 'If I were to stone to death

someone without witness, I would have stoned
this lady'?" Ibn 'Abbas said, "No, that was
another lady who, though being a Muslim, used

to arouse suspicion by her outright misbehavior. "

Volume 7, Book 63, Number 231:
Narrated Said bin Jubair:
I asked Ibn 'Umar, "(What is the verdict if) a
man accuses his wife of illegal sexual
intercourse?" Ibn 'Umar said, "The Prophet
separated (by divorce) the couple of Bani
Al-Ajlan, and said, (to them), 'Allah knows that
one of you two is a liar; so will one of you
repent?' But both of them refused. He again said,

'Allah knows that one of you two is a liar; so will

one of you repent?' But both of them refused. So
he separated them by divorce." (Aiyub, a
sub-narrator said: 'Amr bin Dinar said to me,
"There is something else in this Hadith which you
have not mentioned. It goes thus: The man said,
'What about my money (i.e. the Mahr that I have
given to my wife)?' It was said, 'You have no
right to restore any money, for if you have
spoken the truth (as regards the accusation), you
have also consummated your marriage with her;

and if you have told a lie, you are less rightful to

have your money back.' ")
Volume 7, Book 63, Number 232:
Narrated Said bin Jubair:
I asked Ibn 'Umar about those who were
involved in a case of Lien. He said, "The Prophet
said to those who were involved in a case of
Lien, 'Your accounts are with Allah. One of you

two is a liar, and you (the husband) have no right

over her (she is divorced)." The man said, 'What
about my property (Mahr) ?' The Prophet said,
'You have no right to get back your property. If
you have told the truth about her then your
property was for the consummation of your

marriage with her; and if you told a lie about her,

then you are less rightful to get your property

back.' " Sufyan, a sub-narrator said: I learned the

Hadith from 'Amr. Narrated Aiyub: I heard Sa'id
bin Jubair saying, "I asked Ibn 'Umar, 'If a man

(accuses his wife for an illegal sexual intercourse

and) carries out the process of Lian (what will
happen)?' Ibn 'Umar set two of his fingers apart.
(Sufyan set his index finger and middle finger
apart.) Ibn 'Umar said, 'The Prophet separated
the couple of Bani Al-Ajlan by divorce and said

thrice, "Allah knows that one of you two is a liar;

so will one of you repent (to Allah)?' "
Volume 7, Book 63, Number 233:

carry out Lian, and then separated them by
divorce.
Volume 7, Book 63, Number 235:
Narrated Ibn 'Umar: The Prophet made a man
and his wife carry out Lian, and the husband
repudiated her child. So the Prophet got them
separated (by divorce) and decided that the child
belonged to the mother only.
Volume 7, Book 63, Number 236:
Narrated Ibn 'Abbas:
Those involved in a case of Lian were mentioned
before Allah's Apostle Asim bin Adi said
something about that and then left. Later on a
man from his tribe came to him and told him that
he had found another man with his wife. On that
'Asim said, "I have not been put to task except
for what I have said (about Lian)." 'Asim took
the man to Allah's Apostle and he told him of the
state in which he found his wife. The man was
pale, thin and lank-haired, while the other man
whom he had found with his wife was brown, fat
with thick calves and curly hair. Allah's Apostle
said, "O Allah! Reveal the truth." Then the lady
delivered a child resembling the man whom her
husband had mentioned he had found with her.
So Allah's Apostle ordered them to carry out
Lien. A man from that gathering said to Ibn
'Abbas, "Was she the same lady regarding whom

Allah's Apostle said, 'If I were to stone to death

someone without witnesses, I would have stoned
this lady'?" Ibn 'Abbas said, "No, that was
another lady who, though being a Muslim, used
to arouse suspicion because of her outright
misbehavior."

Allah, and urge your brother) to return her to her

house." Marwan (in Sulaiman's version) said,
"Abdur-Rahman bin Al-Hakam did not obey me
(or had a convincing argument)." (In Al-Qasim's
versions Marwan said, "Have you not heard of
the case of Fatima bint Qais?" Aisha said, "The
case of Fatima bint Qais is not in your favor.'
Marwan bin Al-Hakam said to 'Aisha, "The

father's house is just applicable to the daughter of

'Abdur-Rahman."

husband's house)." 'Aisha said, "What a bad
thing she has done!" 'Ursa said (to 'Aisha),
"Haven't you heard the statement of Fatima?"

'Aisha replied, "It is not in her favor to mention."

'Ursa added, 'Aisha reproached (Fatima)
severely and said, "Fatima was in a lonely place,
and she was proned to danger, so the Prophet
allowed her (to go out of her husband's house)."

Narrated Al-Hasan:
The sister of Ma'qil bin Yasar was married to a
man and then that man divorced her and
remained away from her till her period of the
'Iddah expired. Then he demanded for her hand

in marriage, but Ma'qil got angry out of pride and

haughtiness and said, "He kept away from her
when he could still retain her, and now he
demands her hand again?" So Ma'qil disagreed
to remarry her to him. Then Allah revealed:
'When you have divorced women and they have
fulfilled the term of their prescribed period, do
not prevent them from marrying their (former)
husbands.' (2.232) So the Prophet sent for
Ma'qil and recited to him (Allah's order) and
consequently Ma'qil gave up his pride and
haughtiness and yielded to Allah's order.
Volume 7, Book 63, Number 249:

Ibn 'Umar bin Al-Khattab divorced his wife
during her menses. Allah's Apostle ordered him
to take her back till she became clean, and when
she got another period while she was with him,
she should wait till she became clean again and
only then, if he wanted to divorce her, he could
do so before having sexual relations with her.
And that is the period Allah has fixed for
divorcing women. Whenever 'Abdullah (bin
'Umar) was asked about that, he would say to

the questioner, "If you divorced her thrice, she is

no longer lawful for you unless she marries
another man (and the other man divorces her in

his turn).' Ibn 'Umar further said, 'Would that you

(people) only give one or two divorces, because
the Prophet has ordered me so."
Volume 7, Book 63, Number 250:

Ibn 'Umar divorced his wife while she was having
her menses. 'Umar asked the Prophet who said,
"Order him (your son) to take her back, and then

elapsed." I asked Ibn 'Umar, "Will that divorce
(during the menses) be counted?" He replied, "If
somebody behaves foolishly (will his foolishness
be an excuse for his misbehavior)?"
Volume 7, Book 63, Number 251:
Narrated Humaid bin Nafi':
Zainab bint Abu Salama told me these three
narrations: Zainab said: I went to Um Habiba, the
wife of the Prophet when her father, Abu-
Sufyan bin Herb had died. Um ,Habiba asked
for a perfume which contained yellow scent
(Khaluq) or some other scent, and she first
perfumed one of the girls with it and then rubbed

her cheeks with it and said, "By Allah, I am not in

need of perfume, but I have heard Allah's
Apostle saying, 'It is not lawful for a lady who
believes in Allah and the Last Day to mourn for a
dead person for more than three days unless he
is her husband for whom she should mourn for

four months and ten days.' " Zainab further said: I

want to Zainab bint Jahsh when her brother died.
She asked for perfume and used some of it and
said, "By Allah, I am not in need of perfume, but

I have heard Allah's Apostle saying on the pulpit,

'It is not lawful for a lady who believes in Allah

and the last day to mourn for more than three
days except for her husband for whom she
should mourn for four months and ten days.' "
Zainab further said, "I heard my mother, Um
Salama saying that a woman came to Allah's
Apostle and said, "O Allah's Apostle! The
husband of my daughter has died and she is
suffering from an eye disease, can she apply kohl
to her eye?" Allah's Apostle replied, "No," twice
or thrice. (Every time she repeated her question)
he said, "No." Then Allah's Apostle added, "It is
just a matter of four months and ten days. In the
Pre-Islamic Period of ignorance a widow among
you should throw a globe of dung when one year
has elapsed." I said to Zainab, "What does
'throwing a globe of dung when one year had
elapsed' mean?" Zainab said, "When a lady was
bereaved of her husband, she would live in a
wretched small room and put on the worst

clothes she had and would not touch any scent till

one year had elapsed. Then she would bring an
animal, e.g. a donkey, a sheep or a bird and rub
her body against it. The animal against which she
would rub her body would scarcely survive. Only
then she would come out of her room,
whereupon she would be given a globe of dung
which she would throw away and then she would
use the scent she liked or the like."
Volume 7, Book 63, Number 252:
Narrated Um Salama:
A woman was bereaved of her husband and her
relatives worried about her eyes (which were
diseased). They came to Allah's Apostle, and
asked him to allow them to treat her eyes with
kohl, but he said, "She should not apply kohl to
her eyes. (In the Pre-Islamic period of
Ignorance) a widowed woman among you would

stay in the worst of her clothes (or the worst part

of her house) and when a year had elapsed, if a
dog passed by her, she would throw a globe of
dung, Nay, (she cannot use kohl) till four months
and ten days have elapsed."
Narrated Um Habiba: The Prophet said, "It is
not lawful for a Muslim woman who believes in
Allah and the Last Day to mourn for more than
three days, except for her husband, for whom
she should mourn for four months and ten days."

days for a dead person, except for a husband,

and ten days (while in the mourning period) we
were not allowed to put kohl in our eyes, nor
perfume our-selves, nor wear dyed clothes,
except a garment of 'Asb (special clothes made
in Yemen). But it was permissible for us that
when one of us became clean from her menses
and took a bath, she could use a piece of a
certain kind of incense. And it was forbidden for
us to follow funeral processions.
Volume 7, Book 63, Number 255:
Narrated Um 'Atiyya:

The Prophet said, "It is not lawful for a lady who

believes in Allah and the Last Day, to mourn for
more than three days for a dead person, except
for her husband, in which case she should neither
put kohl in her eyes, nor perfume herself, nor
wear dyed clothes, except a garment of 'Asb"
Um 'Atiyya added: The Prophet said, "She
should not use perfume except when she
becomes clean from her menses whereupon she
can use Qust, and Azfar (two kinds of incense).
Volume 7, Book 63, Number 256:
Narrated Mujahid:
(regarding the Verse): 'If any of you dies and
leaves wives behind,' That was the period of the
'Iddah which the widow was obliged to spend in
the house of the late husband. Then Allah
revealed: And those of you who die and leave
wives should bequeath for their wives a year's
maintenance and residence without turning them
out, but if they leave, there is no blame on you
for what they do of themselves, provided it is
honorable (i.e. lawful marriage) (2.240) Mujahid

said: Allah has ordered that a widow has the right

to stay for seven months and twenty days with

her husband's relatives through her husband's will

and testament so that she will complete the
period of one year (of 'Iddah). But the widow

has the right to stay that extra period or go out of

her husband's house as is indicated by the

statement of Allah: 'But if they leave there is no

blame on you,... ' (2.240) Ibn 'Abbas said: The
above Verse has cancelled the order of spending
the period of the 'Iddah at her late husband's
house, and so she could spend her period of the
'Iddah wherever she likes. And Allah says:
'Without turning them out.' 'Ata said: If she
would, she could spend her period of the 'Iddah
at her husband's house, and live there according
to her (husband's) will and testament, and if she
would, she could go out (of her husband's house)
as Allah says: 'There is no blame on you for what
they do of themselves.' (2.240) 'Ata added: Then
the Verses of inheritance were revealed and the
order of residence (for the widow) was
cancelled, and she could spend her period of the
'Iddah wherever she would like, and she was no
longer entitled to be accommodated by her
husband's family.
Volume 7, Book 63, Number 257:
Narrated Zainab bint Um Salama:
When Um Habiba bint Abi Sufyan was informed
of her father's death, she asked for perfume and
rubbed it over her arms and said, "I am not in

saying, "It is not lawful for a lady who believes in

Allah and the Last Day to mourn for more than
three days except for her husband for whom the
(mourning) period is four months and ten days."

He said, "Allah's Prophet separated the couple of
Bani 'Ajlan (when the husband accused his wife
for an illegal sexual intercourse). The Prophet
said, 'Allah knows that one of you two IS a liar;
so will one of you repent?' But they refused. He
then again said, 'Allah knows that one of you two
is a liar; so will one of you repent?' But they
refused, whereupon he separated them by
divorce." Aiyub (a sub-narrator) said: 'Amr bin
Dinar said to me, "In the narration there is
something which I do not see you mentioning, i.e.
the husband said, "What about my money
(Mahr)?' The Prophet said, "You are not entitled
to take back money, for if you told the truth you
have already entered upon her (and
consummated your marriage with her) and if you
are a liar then you are less entitled to take it
back.
Volume 7, Book 63, Number 262:
Narrated Ibn 'Umar:
The Prophet said to those who were involved in
a case of Lian, "Your accounts are with Allah.
One of you two is a liar. You (husband) have
right on her (wife)." The husband said, "My
money, O Allah's Apostle!" The Prophet
said, "You are not entitled to take back any
money. If you have told the truth, the Mahr that

you paid, was for having sexual relations with her

lawfully; and if you are a liar, then you are less

entitled to get it back."

all my property in Allah's Cause?" He said, "No."
I said, "Half of it?" He said, "No." I said, "One

third of it?" He said, "One-third (is alright), yet it

is still too much, for you'd better leave your
inheritors wealthy than leave them poor, begging
of others. Whatever you spend will be
considered a Sadaqa for you, even the mouthful
of food you put in the mouth of your wife.
Anyhow Allah may let you recover, so that some
people may benefit by you and others be harmed
by you."

me.' A slave says, 'Give me food and enjoy my
service." A son says, "Give me food; to whom

Huraira! Did you hear that from Allah's Apostle
?" He said, "No, it is from my own self."

Volume 7, Book 64, Number 271:
Narrated Malik bin Aus bin Al-Hadathan:
Once I set out to visit 'Umar (bin Al-Khattab).
(While I was sitting there with him his
gate-keeper, Yarfa, came and said, "Uthman
AbdurRahman (bin 'Auf), Az-Zubair and Sad
(bin Abi Waqqas) are seeking permission (to
meet you)." 'Umar said, "Yes. So he admitted
them and they entered, greeted, and sat down.
After a short while Yarfa came again and said to
'Umar 'Shall I admit 'Ali and 'Abbas?" 'Umar
said, "Yes." He admitted them and when they
entered, they greeted and sat down. 'Abbas said,
"O Chief of the Believers! Judge between me
and this ('Ali)." The group, 'Uthman and his
companions Sad, 'O Chief of the Believers!
Judge between them and relieve one from the
other." 'Umar said. Wait! I beseech you by
Allah, by Whose permission both the Heaven
and the Earth stand fast ! Do you know that
Allah's Apostle said. 'We (Apostles) do not
bequeath anything to our heirs, but whatever we
leave is to be given in charity.' And by that
Allah's Apostles meant himself?" The group said,
"He did say so." 'Umar then turned towards 'All
and 'Abbas and said. "I beseech you both by
Allah, do you know that Allah's Apostle said
that?" They said, 'Yes " 'Umar said, "Now, let
me talk to you about this matter. Allah favored
His Apostle with something of this property (war
booty) which He did not give to anybody else.
And Allah said:-- 'And what Allah has bestowed
on His Apostle (as Fai Booty) from them for
which you made no expedition with either cavalry
or camelry . . . Allah is Able to do all things.'
(59.6) So this property was especially granted to
Allah's Apostle. But by Allah he neither withheld
it from you, nor did he keep it for himself and
deprive you of it, but he gave it all to you and

distributed it among you till only this remained out

of it. And out of this property Allah's Apostle

used to provide his family with their yearly needs,

and whatever remained, he would spend where
Allah's Property (the revenues of Zakat) used to

be spent. Allah's Apostle kept on acting like this

throughout his lifetime. Now I beseech you by
Allah, do you know that?" They said, "Yes."
Then 'Umar said to 'Ali and 'Abbas, "I beseech
you by Allah, do you both know that?" They
said, "Yes." 'Umar added, "When Allah had
taken His Apostle unto Him, Abu Bakr said, 'I
am the successor of Allah's Apostle. So he took
charge of that property and did with it the same
what Allah's Apostle used to do, and both of you
knew all about it then." Then 'Umar turned
towards 'Ali and Abbas and said, "You both
claim that Abu- Bakr was so-and-so! But Allah
knows that he was honest, sincere, pious and
right (in that matter). Then Allah caused Abu
Bakr to die, and i said, 'I am the successor of
Allah's Apostle and Abu Bakr.' So I kept this
property in my possession for the first two years
of my rule, and I used to do the same with it as
Allah's Apostle and Abu Bakr used to do. Later
both of you ('Ali and 'Abbas) came to me with
the same claim and the same problem. (O
'Abbas!) You came to me demanding your share

from (the inheritance of) the son of your brother,

and he ('Ali) came to me demanding his wives
share from (the inheritance of) her father. So I
said to you, 'If you wish I will hand over this
property to you, on condition that you both
promise me before Allah that you will manage it
in the same way as Allah's Apostle and Abu
Bakr did, and as I have done since the beginning
of my rule; otherwise you should not speak to me
about it.' So you both said, 'Hand over this
property to us on this condition.' And on this
condition I handed it over to you. I beseech you
by Allah, did I hand it over to them on that
condition?" The group said, "Yes." 'Umar then
faced 'Ali and 'Abbas and said, "I beseech you
both by Allah, did I hand it over to you both on
that condition?" They both said, "Yes." 'Umar
added, "Do you want me now to give a decision
other than that? By Him with Whose permission
(order) both the Heaven and the Earth stand fast,

I will never give any decision other than that till

the Hour is established! But if you are unable to

manage it (that property), then return it to me and

I will be sufficient for it on your behalf . "

the bad effect of the stone hand-mill on her hand.

She heard that the Prophet had received a few
slave girls. But (when she came there) she did
not find him, so she mentioned her problem to
'Aisha. When the Prophet came, 'Aisha informed
him about that. 'Ali added, "So the Prophet came
to us when we had gone to bed. We wanted to
get up (on his arrival) but he said, 'Stay where
you are." Then he came and sat between me and
her and I felt the coldness of his feet on my
abdomen. He said, "Shall I direct you to
something better than what you have requested?
When you go to bed say 'Subhan Allah'
thirty-three times, 'Alhamdulillah' thirty three
times, and Allahu Akbar' thirty four times, for
that is better for you than a servant."

three times, and 'Allahu Akbar' thirty four times.

'All added, 'I have never failed to recite it ever

since." Somebody asked, "Even on the night of
the battle of Siffin?" He said, "No, even on the
night of the battle of Siffin."

said, "Why not a virgin, so that you might play
with her and she with you, and you might amuse
her and she amuse you." I said, " 'Abdullah (my

father) died and left girls, and I dislike to marry a

girl like them, so I married a lady (matron) so
that she may look after them." On that he said,

replied, "I cannot afford that." The Prophet said,

"Then fast for two successive months." He said,
"I cannot." The Prophet said, "Then feed sixty
poor persons." He said, "I have nothing to do
that." In the meantime a basket full of dates was
brought to the Prophet . He said, "Where is the
questioner." The man said, "I am here." The
Prophet said (to him), "Give this (basket of
dates) in charity (as expiation)." He said, "O
Allah's Apostle! Shall I give it to poorer people
than us? By Him Who sent you with the Truth,
there is no family between Medina's two
mountains poorer than us." The Prophet smiled
till his pre-molar teeth became visible. He then
said, "Then take it."

(according to your needs) in a reasonable
manner."
Volume 7, Book 64, Number 284:
Narrated Abu Huraira:
A dead man in debt used to be brought to Allah's
Apostle who would ask, "Has he left anything to
re pay his debts?" If he was informed that he had
left something to cover his debts the Prophet
would offer the funeral prayer for him; otherwise
he would say to the Muslims present there),
"Offer the funeral prayer for your friend:"but
when Allah helped the Prophet to gain victory

(on his expeditions), he said, "I am closer to the

Apostle! Will you marry my sister, the daughter

that?" I said, "Yes, for I am not your only wife,
and the person I like most to share the good with

me, is my sister." He said, "That is not lawful for

me." I said, "O Allah's Apostle! We have heard
that you want to marry Durra, the daughter of
Abu Salama." He said, "You mean the daughter
of Um Salama?" I said, "Yes." He said, "Even if
she were not my step-daughter, she is unlawful
for me, for she is my foster niece. Thuwaiba
suckled me and Abu Salama. So you should not
present to me your daughters and sisters."

whom Abu Lahab had emancipated.

Once while I was in a state of fatigue (because of

severe hunger), I met 'Umar bin Al-Khattab, so I
asked him to recite a verse from Allah's Book to
me. He entered his house and interpreted it to
me. (Then I went out and) after walking for a
short distance, I fell on my face because of
fatigue and severe hunger. Suddenly I saw
Allah's Apostle standing by my head. He said,
"O Abu Huraira!" I replied, "Labbaik, O Allah's
Apostle, and Sadaik!" Then he held me by the
hand, and made me get up. Then he came to
know what I was suffering from. He took me to
his house, and ordered a big bowl of milk for me.
I drank thereof and he said, "Drink more, O Abu
Hirr!" So I drank again, whereupon he again
said, "Drink more." So I drank more till my belly
became full and looked like a bowl. Afterwards I
met 'Umar and mentioned to him what had
happened to me, and said to him, "Somebody,
who had more right than you, O 'Umar, took
over the case. By Allah, I asked you to recite a
Verse to me while I knew it better than you." On
that Umar said to me, "By Allah, if I admitted
and entertained you, it would have been dearer
to me than having nice red camels.

(to eat)?" She took out some loaves of barley
bread, then took her face-covering sheet and
wrapped the bread in part of it, and pushed it
under my garment and turned the rest of it
around my body and sent me to Allah's Apostle .

I went with that, and found Allah's Apostle in the

mosque with some people. I stood up near them,
and Allah's Apostle asked me, "Have you been
sent by Abu Talha?" I said, "Yes." He asked,
"With some food (for us)?" I said, "Yes." Then
Allah's Apostle said to all those who were with
him, "Get up!" He set out (and all the people
accompanied him) and I proceeded ahead of
them till I came to Abu Talha. Abu Talha then
said, "O Um Sulaim! Allah's Apostle has arrived
along with the people, and we do not have food
enough to feed them all." She said, "Allah and
His Apostle know better." So Abu Talha went
out till he met Allah's Apostle. Then Abu Talha
and Allah's Apostle came and entered the house.
Allah's Apostle said, "Um Sulaim ! Bring
whatever you have." She brought that very
bread. The Prophet ordered that it be crushed
into small pieces, and Um Sulaim pressed a skin
of butter on it. Then Allah's Apostle said
whatever Allah wished him to say (to bless the
food) and then added, "Admit ten (men)." So
they were admitted, ate their fill and went out.
The Prophet then said, "Admit ten (more)." They
were admitted, ate their full, and went out. He
then again said, "Admit ten more!" They were

admitted, ate their fill, and went out. He admitted

ten more, and so all those people ate their fill,
and they were eighty men.

man had one Sa of wheat flour (or so) which was

turned into dough then. After a while a tall lanky

pagan came, driving some sheep. The Prophet

asked, 'Will you sell us (a sheep), or give (it to)

us as a gift?" The pagan said, "No, but I will sell

it " So the Prophet bought from him a sheep
which was slaughtered, and then the Prophet
ordered that the liver, the kidneys, lungs and
heart, etc., of that sheep be roasted. By Allah,
none of those one hundred and thirty men but
had his share of those things. The Prophet gave
to those who were present, and also kept a share
for those who were absent He then served that
cooked sheep in two big trays and we all ate

together our fill; yet there remained a part of it in

mastigure whereupon a lady from among those
who were present, said, "You should inform
Allah's Apostle of what you have presented to
him. O Allah's Apostle! It is the meat of a
mastigure." (On learning that) Allah's Apostle
withdrew his hand from the meat of the
mastigure. Khalid bin Al-Walid said, "O Allah's

Apostle! Is this unlawful to eat?" Allah's Apostle

When it rains, the valley which is between me
and my people, flows with water, and then I
cannot go to their mosque to lead them in the
prayer. O Allah's Apostle! I wish that you could
come and pray in my house so that I may take it
as a praying place. The Prophet said, "Allah
willing, I will do that." The next morning, soon

after the sun had risen, Allah's Apostle came with

Abu Bakr. The Prophet asked for the permission
to enter and I admitted him. The Prophet had not
sat till he had entered the house and said to me,
"Where do you like me to pray in your house?" I
pointed at a place in my house whereupon he
stood and said, "Allahu Akbar." We lined behind
him and he prayed two Rakat and finished it with
Taslim. We then requested him to stay for a
special meal of Khazira which we had prepared.
A large number of men from the adjoining area
gathered in the house. One of them said, "Where
is Malik bin Ad-Dukhshun?" Another man said,
"He is a hypocrite and does not love Allah and
His Apostle." The Prophet said, "Do not say so.
Do you not think that he has said: "None has the

right to be worshipped but Allah," seeking Allah's

pleasure? The man said, "Allah and His Apostle
know better, but we have always seen him
mixing with hypocrites and giving them advice."
The Prophet said, "Allah has forbidden the (Hell)

Fire for those who testify that none has the right

to be worshipped but Allah, seeking Allah's
pleasure. "

When we had finished the prayer, we would visit
her and she would present that dish before us.
So we used to be happy on Fridays because of
that, and we never used to take our meals or
have a mid-day nap except after the Friday
prayer. By Allah, that meal contained no fat.

meat while they were in a state of Ihram Then I
proceeded further and I kept one of its forelegs
with me. When we met Allah's Apostle we asked

sadness, helplessness, laziness, miserliness,

being overpowered by other persons unjustly." I
kept on serving till we -returned from the battle

bint Huyai whom he had won from the war
booty. I saw him folding up a gown or a garment
for her to sit on behind him (on his she-camel).
When he reached As-Sahba', he prepared Hais
and placed it on a dining sheet. Then he sent me
to invite men, who (came and) ate; and that was
his and Safiyya's wedding banquet. Then the
Prophet proceeded, and when he saw (noticed)
the mountain of Uhud, he said, "This mountain

you wished, for the wala is for the one who
manumits the slave." Barira was manumitted, then
she was given the choice either to stay with her
husband or leave him; One day Allah's Apostle
entered 'Aisha's house while there was a cooking
pot of food boiling on the fire. The Prophet
asked for lunch, and he was presented with
bread and some extra food from the home-made
Udm (e.g. soup). He asked, "Don't I see meat
(being cooked)?" They said, "Yes, O Allah's

Apostle! But it is the meat that has been given to

Barira in charity and she has given it to us as a

present." He said, "For Barira it is alms, but for

us it is a present."

Quranic Verse for me though I knew it, so that
he might take me to his house and feed me. Ja'far

Prophet said, "You have invited me as one of five
guests, but now another man has followed us. If
you wish you can admit him, and if you wish you
can refuse him." On that the host said, "But I
admit him." Narrated Muhammad bin Isma'il: If
guests are sitting at a dining table, they do not
have the right to carry food from other tables to
theirs, but they can pass on food from their own

the payment of the debt was delayed one year.
The Jew came to me at the time of plucking, but
gathered nothing from my land. I asked him to
give me one year respite, but he refused. This
news reached the Prophet whereupon he said to
his companions, "Let us go and ask the Jew for
respite for Jabir." All of them came to me in my
garden, and the Prophet started speaking to the
Jew, but he Jew said, "O Abu Qasim! I will not
grant him respite." When the Prophet saw the
Jew's attitude, he stood up and walked all
around the garden and came again and talked to

the Jew, but the Jew refused his request. I got up

and brought some ripe fresh dates and put it in
front of the Prophet. He ate and then said to me,
"Where is your hut, O Jabir?" I informed him,
and he said, "Spread out a bed for me in it." I
spread out a bed, and he entered and slept.
When he woke up, I brought some dates to him
again and he ate of it and then got up and talked
to the Jew again, but the Jew again refused his
request. Then the Prophet got up for the second
time amidst the palm trees loaded with fresh
dates, and said, "O Jabir! Pluck dates to repay
your debt." The Jew remained with me while I

was plucking the dates, till I paid him all his right,

went out and proceeded till I reached the
Prophet and informed him of the good news,
whereupon he said, "I testify that I am Allah's
Apostle."

asked for a date, chewed it, and put his saliva in the mouth of the child. So the first

thing to enter its stomach was the saliva of Allah's Apostle. Then he did its Tahnik

with a date, and invoked Allah to bless him. It was the first child born in the Islamic

offspring.

Bestow your blessing on them as regards that night of theirs." Um Sulaim gave birth

to a boy. Abu Talha told me to take care of the child till it was taken to the

Prophet. Then Abu Talha took the child to the Prophet and Um Sulaim sent some

I asked the Prophet about the game killed by a Mi'rad (i.e. a sharp-edged piece of

wood or a piece of wood provided with a sharp piece of iron used for hunting). He

said, "If the game is killed with its sharp edge, eat of it, but if it is killed with its

shaft, with a hit by its broad side then the game is (unlawful to eat) for it has been

beaten to death." I asked him about the game killed by a trained hound. He said,

"If the hound catches the game for you, eat of it, for killing the game by the hound,

is like its slaughtering. But if you see with your hound or hounds another dog, and

you are afraid that it might have shared in hunting the game with your hound and

killed it, then you should not eat of it, because you have mentioned Allah's name on

(sending) your hound only, but you have not mentioned it on some other hound

Volume 7, Book 67, Number 385:

I asked Allah's Apostle about the Mi'rad. He said, "If you hit the game with its

unlawful)." I asked, "If I let loose my trained hound after a game?" He said, "If you

let loose your trained hound after game, and mention the name of Allah, then you

can eat." I said, "If the hound eats of the game?" He said "Then you should not eat

of it, for the hound has hunted the game for itself and not for you." I said, "Some

times I send my hound and then I find some other hound with it?" He said "Don't

eat the game, as you have mentioned the Name of Allah on your dog only and not

on the other."
Volume 7, Book 67, Number 386:
Narrated Adi bin Hatim:

I said, "O Allah's Apostle! We let loose our trained hounds after a game?" He said,

"Eat what they hunt for you." I said, "Even if they killed (the game)?" He replied,

'Even if they killed (the game)." I said, 'We also hit (the game) with the Mi'rad?"

eat of the animal which is killed by the broad side of the Mi'rad.''

Volume 7, Book 67, Number 387:
Narrated Abu Tha'laba Al-Khushani:

Scripture; Can we take our meals in their utensils? In that land there is plenty of

game and I hunt the game with my bow and with my hound that is not trained and

with my trained hound. Then what is lawful for me to eat?" He said, "As for what

you have mentioned about the people of the Scripture, if you can get utensils other

than theirs, do not eat out of theirs, but if you cannot get other than theirs, wash

their utensils and eat out of it. If you hunt an animal with your bow after mentioning

Allah's Name, eat of it. and if you hunt something with your trained hound after

mentioning Allah's Name, eat of it, and if you hunt something with your untrained

hound (and get it before it dies) and slaughter it, eat of it."

to dislike it." 'Abdullah added: Throwing stones will neither hunt the game, nor kill

(or hurt) an enemy, but it may break a tooth or gouge out an eye." Afterwards

'Abdullah once again saw the man throwing stones. He said to him, "I tell you that

Allah's Apostle has forbidden or disliked the throwing the stones (in such a way),

yet you are throwing stones! I shall not talk to you for such-and-such a period."

Narrated Adi bin Hatim:

I asked Allah's Apostle. "We hunt with the help of these hounds." He said, "If you

let loose your trained hounds after a game, and mention the name of Allah, then

you can eat what the hounds catch for you, even if they killed the game. But you

should not eat of it if the hound has eaten of it, for then it is likely that the hound has

caught the game for itself. And if other hounds join your hound in hunting the game,

then do not eat of it."
Volume 7, Book 67, Number 393:
Narrated Adi bin Hatim:

The Prophet said, "If you let loose your hound after a game and mention Allah's

Name on sending it, and the hound catches the game and kills it, then you can eat

of it. But if the hound eats of it, then you should not eat thereof, for the hound has

caught it for itself. And if along with your hound, join other hounds, and Allah's

Name was not mentioned at the time of their sending, and they catch an animal and

kill it, you should not ea: of it, for you will not know which of them has killed it.

And if you have thrown an arrow at the game and then find it (dead) two or three

days later and, it bears no mark other than the wound inflicted by your arrow, then

you can eat of it. But if the game is found (dead) in water, then do not eat of it."

And it has also been narrated by 'Adi bin Hatim that he asked the Prophet "If a

hunter throws an arrow at the game and after tracing it for two or three days he

finds it dead but still bearing his arrow, (can he eat of it)?" The Prophet replied,

"He can eat if he wishes."
Volume 7, Book 67, Number 394:
Narrated 'Adi bin Hatim:

I said, "O Allah's Apostle! I let loose my hound after a game and mention Allah's

Name on sending it." The Prophet said, "If you let loose your hound after a game

and you mention Allah's Name on sending it and the hound catches and kills the

game and eats of it, then you should not eat of it, for it has killed it for itself." I said,

"Sometimes when I send my hound after a game, I find another hound along with it

and I do not know which of them has caught the game." He said, "You must not

eat of it because you have not mentioned, the Name of Allah except on sending

your own hound, and you did not mention it on the other hound." Then I asked him

about the game hunted with a Mi'rad (i.e. a sharp edged piece of wood or a piece

of wood provided with a sharp piece of iron used for hunting). He said, "If the

game is killed with its sharp edge, you can eat of it, but if it is killed by its broad

side (shaft), you cannot eat of it, for then it is like an animal beaten to death with a

pie
Volume 7, Book 67, Number 395:
Narrated Adi Bin Hatim:

I asked Allah's Apostle, "We hunt with these hounds." He said, "If you send your

trained hounds after a game and mention Allah's Name on sending, you can eat of

what they catch for you. But if the hound eats of the game, then you must not eat of

it, for I am afraid that the hound caught it for itself, and if another hound joins your

hounds (during the hunt), you should not eat of the game."

Narrated Abu Tha'laba Al-Khushani:

I came to Allah's Apostle and said, "O Allah's Apostle! We are living in the land of

the people of the Scripture and we take our meals in their utensils, and in the land

there is game and I hunt with my bow and trained or untrained hounds; please tell

me what is lawful for us of that." He said, "As for your saying that you are living in

the land of the people of the Scripture and that you eat in their utensils, if you can

get utensils other than theirs, do not eat in their utensils, but if you do not find (other

than theirs), then wash their utensils and eat in them. As for your saying that you

are in the land of game, if you hung something with your bow, and have mentioned

Allah's Name while hunting, then you can eat (the game). And if you hunt

something with your trained hound, and have mentioned Allah's Name on sending it

for hunting then you can eat (the game). But if you hunt something with your

untrained hound and you were able to slaughter it before its death, you can eat of

it."

the state of lhram. remained behind the Prophet while Abu Qatada himself was not

in the state of Ihram. Abu Qatada, seeing an onager rode his horse and asked his

companions to hand him a whip, but they refused. He then asked them to hand him

his spear, but they refused. Then he took it himself and attacked the onager and

killed it. Some of the Companions of Allah's Apostle ate of it, but some others

refused to eat. When they met Allah's Apostle they asked him about that. He said,

"It was meal given to you by Allah."

I was with the Prophet (on a journey) between Mecca and Medina, and all of

them, (i.e. the Prophet and his companions) were in the state of Ihram, while I was

not in that state. I was riding my horse and I used to be fond of ascending

mountains. So while I was doing so I noticed that the people were looking at

something. I went to see what it was, and behold it was an onager. I asked my

companions, "What is that?" They said, "We do not know." I said, "It is an onager.'

They said, "It is what you have seen." I had left my whip, so I said to them, "Hand

to me my whip." They said, "We will not help you in that (in hunting the onager)." I

got down, took my whip and chased the animal (on my horse) and did not stop till

I killed it. I went to them and said, "Come on, carry it!" But they said, "We will not

even touch it." At last I alone carried it and brought it to them. Some of them ate of

it and some refused to eat of it. I said (to them), "I will ask the Prophet about it (on

your behalf)." When I met the Prophet, I told him the whole story. He said to me,

"Has anything of it been left with you?" I said, "Yes." He said, "Eat, for it is a meal

Allah has offered to you."

We went out in a campaign and the army was called The Army of the Khabt, and

Abu 'Ubaida was our commander. We were struck with severe hunger. Then the

sea threw a huge dead fish called Al-'Anbar, the like of which had never been

seen. We ate of it for half a month, and then Abu 'Ubaida took one of its bones

(and made an arch of it) so that a rider could easily pass under it.

The Prophet sent us as an army unit of three hundred warriors under the command

of Abu 'Ubaida to ambush a caravan of the Quraish. But we were struck with such

severe hunger that we ate the Khabt (desert bushes), so our army was called the

Army of the Khabt. Then the sea threw a huge fish called Al-'Anbar and we ate of

it for half a month and rubbed our bodies with its fat till our bodies became healthy.

Then Abu Ubaida took one of its ribs and fixed it over the ground and a rider

passed underneath it. There was a man amongst us who slaughtered three camels

when hunger became severe, and he slaughtered three more, but after that Abu

'Ubaida forbade him to do so.

untrained hound." The Prophet said, "As for your saying that you are in the land of

people of the Scripture, you should not eat in their utensils unless you find no

alternative, in which case you must wash the utensils and then eat in them As for

your saying that you are in the land of game, if you hunt something with your bow,

mention Allah's Name (while hunting the game) and eat; and if you hunt something

with your trained hound, mention Allah's Name on sending and eat; and if you hunt

something with your untrained hound and get it alive, slaughter it and you can eat of

it"

cooking pots and break the pots." A man from the people got up and said, "Shall

we throw the contents of the cooking pots and then wash the pots (instead of

breaking them)?" The Prophet said, "Yes, you can do either'

them). The Prophet was behind all the people. The people hurried and fixed the

cooking pots (for cooking) but the Prophet came there and ordered that the

cooking pots be turned upside down. Then he distributed the animals, regarding

ten sheep as equal to one camel. One of the camels ran away and there were a few

horses with the people. They chased the camel but they got tired, whereupon a

man shot it with an arrow whereby Allah stopped it. The Prophet said, "Among

these animals some are as wild as wild beasts, so if one of them runs away from

you, treat it in this way." I said. "We hope, or we are afraid that tomorrow we will

meet the enemy and we have no knives, shall we slaughter (our animals) with

canes?" The Prophet said, "If the killing tool causes blood to gush out and if Allah's

Name is mentioned, eat (of the slaughterer animal). But do not slaughter with a

tooth or a nail. I am telling you why: A tooth is a bone, and the nail is the knife of

Ethiopians."

Zaid bin 'Amr, but Zaid refused to eat of it and then said (to the pagans), "I do not

Prophet finished his prayer, he saw that they had slaughtered their sacrifices before

the prayer. He said, "Whoever has slaughtered (his sacrifice) before the prayer,

should slaughter (another sacrifice) in lieu of it; and whoever has not yet

slaughtered it till we have prayed; should slaughter (it) by mentioning Allah's

Name."

knife of Ethiopians and a tooth is a bone." Suddenly a camel ran away and it was

stopped (with an arrow). The Prophet then said, "Of these camels there are some

which are as wild as wild beasts; so if one of them runs away from you and you

cannot catch it, treat it in this manner (i.e. shoot it with an arrow)."

animal). But do not slaughter with a tooth or a nail. I will tell you why: As for the

tooth, it is a bone; and as for the nail, it is the knife of Ethiopians." Then we got

some camels and sheep as war booty, and one of those camels ran away,

Allah's Apostle eating of it (i.e. chicken)." He said, "I have seen it eating something

(dirty) and since then I have disliked it, and have taken an oath that I shall not eat it

' Abu Musa said, "Come on, I will tell you (or narrate to you). Once I went to

Allah s Apostle with a group of Al-Ash'ariyin, and met him while he was angry,

distributing some camels of Rakat. We asked for mounts but he took an oath that

he would not give us any mounts, and added, 'I have nothing to mount you on' In

the meantime some camels of booty were brought to Allah's Apostle and he asked

twice, 'Where are Al-Ash'ariyin?" So he gave us five white camels with big humps.

We stayed for a short while (after we had covered a little distance), and then I said

to my companions, "Allah's Apostle has forgotten his oath. By Allah, if we do not

remind Allah's Apostle of his oath, we will never be successful." So we returned to

the Prophet and said, "O Allah's Apostle! We asked you for mounts, but you took

an oath that you would not give us any mounts; we think that you have forgotten

your oath.' He said, 'It is Allah Who has given you mounts. By Allah, and Allah

willing, if I take an oath and later find something else better than that. then I do

eat of it, unless the killing instrument is a tooth or nail. I will tell you why: As for the

tooth, it is a bone; and as for the nail, it is the knife of Ethiopians." The quick ones

among the people got the war booty while the Prophet was behind the people. So

they placed the cooking pots on the fire, but the Prophet ordered the cooking pots

to be turned upside down. Then he distributed (the war booty) among them,

considering one camel as equal to ten sheep. Then a camel belonging to the first

party of people ran away and they had no horses with them, so a man shot it with

we are in battles or on a journey we want to slaughter (animals) but we have no

knives." He said, "Listen! If you slaughter the animal with anything that causes its

blood to flow out, and if Allah's Name is mentioned on slaughtering it, eat of it,

provided that the slaughtering instrument is not a tooth or a nail, as the tooth is a

bone and the nail is the knife of Ethiopians."

The Prophet said (on the day of Idal-Adha), "The first thing we will do on this day

of ours, is to offer the ('Id) prayer and then return to slaughter the sacrifice.

Whoever does so, he acted according to our Sunna (tradition), and whoever

slaughtered (the sacrifice) before the prayer, what he offered was just meat he

presented to his family, and that will not be considered as Nusak (sacrifice)." (On

hearing that) Abu Burda bin Niyar got up, for he had slaughtered the sacrifice

before the prayer, and said, "I have got a six month old ram." The Prophet said,

'Slaughter it (as a sacrifice) but it will not be sufficient for any-one else (as a

sacrifice after you). Al-Bara' added: The Prophet said, "Whoever slaughtered (the

sacrifice) after the prayer, he slaughtered it at the right time and followed the

tradition of the Muslims."

you got your period?" She said, "Yes." He said, "This is a matter Allah has decreed

for all the daughters of Adam, so perform all the ceremonies of Hajj like the others,

but do not perform the Tawaf around the Ka'ba." 'Aisha added: When we were at

Mina, beef was brought to me and I asked, "What is this?" They (the people) said,

"Allah's Apostle has slaughtered some cows as sacrifices on behalf of his wives."

Volume 7, Book 68, Number 457:

The Prophet said on the day of Nahr, "Whoever has slaughtered his sacrifice

said, "O Allah's Apostle! This is a day on which meat is desired." He then

mentioned his neighbors saying, "I have a six month old ram which is to me better

than the meat of two sheep." The Prophet allowed him to slaughter it as a sacrifice,

but I do not know whether this permission was valid for other than that man or not.

The Prophet then went towards two rams and slaughtered them, and then the

people went towards some sheep and distributed them among themselves.

Volume 7, Book 68, Number 458:

are sacred, three of them are in succession, namely Dhul-Qa'da, Dhul Hijja and

Muharram, (the fourth being) Rajab Mudar which is between Juma'da (ath-thamj

and Sha'ban. The Prophet then asked, "Which month is this?" We said, "Allah and

his Apostle know better." He kept silent so long that we thought that he would call

it by a name other than its real name. He said, "Isn't it the month of Dhul-Hijja?"

We said, "Yes." He said, "Which town is this?" We said, "Allah and His Apostle

know better." He kept silent so long that we thought that he would call it t,y a name

other than its real name. He said, "isn't it the town (of Mecca)?" We replied, "Yes."

He said, "What day is today?" We replied, "Allah and His Apostle know better."

He kept silent so long that we thought that he would call it by a name other than its

real name. He said, "Isn't it the day of Nahr?" We replied, "Yes." He then said,

"Your blood, properties and honor are as sacred to one another as this day of

yours in this town of yours in this month of yours. You will meet your Lord, and He

will ask you about your deeds. Beware! Do not go astray after me by cutting the

necks of each other. It is incumbent upon those who are present to convey this

message to those who are absent, for some of those to whom it is conveyed may

comprehend it better than some of those who have heard it directly." (Muhammad,

the sub-narrator, on mentioning this used to say: The Prophet then said, "No

doubt! Haven't I delivered (Allah's) Message (to you)? Haven't I delivered Allah's

message (to you)?"

he has followed our tradition, and whoever slaughtered his sacrifice (before the

prayer), what he offered was just meat that he presented to his family, and that was

not a sacrifice." Abu Burda got up and said, "O Allah's Apostle! I slaughtered the

sacrifice before the prayer and I have got a Jadha'a which is better than an old

(May Allah bestow His Mercy on you, if he says, Praise be to Allah), to accept

invitations, to greet (everybody), to help the oppressed and to help others to fulfill

their oaths. He forbade us to wear gold rings, to drink in silver (utensils), to use

An Arab lady was mentioned to the Prophet so he asked Abu Usaid As-Sa'idi to

send for her, and he sent for her and she came and stayed in the castle of Bani

Sa'ida. The Prophet came out and went to her and entered upon her. Behold, it

was a lady sitting with a drooping head. When the Prophet spoke to her, she said,

"I seek refuge with Allah from you." He said, "I grant you refuge from me." They

said to her, "Do you know who this is?" She said, "No." They said, "This is Allah's

Apostle who has come to command your hand in marriage." She said, "I am very

unlucky to lose this chance." Then the Prophet and his companions went towards

the shed of Bani Sa'ida and sat there. Then he said, "Give us water, O Sahl!" So I

took out this drinking bowl and gave them water in it. The sub-narrator added:

Sahl took out for us that very drinking bowl and we all drank from it. Later on

Umar bin 'Abdul 'Aziz requested Sahl to give it to him as a present, and he gave it

to him as a present.

and made of Nadar wood, Anas said, "I gave water to the Prophet in that bowl

more than so-and-so (for a long period)." Ibn Sirin said: Around that bowl there

was an iron ring, and Anas wanted to replace it with a silver or gold ring, but Abu

Talha said to him, "Do not change a thing that Allah's Apostle has made." So Anas

left it as it was.
Volume 7, Book 69, Number 543:
Narrated Jabir bin 'Abdullah:

I was with the Prophet and the time for the 'Asr prayer became due. We had no

water with us except a little which was put in a vessel and was brought to the

Prophet . He put his hand into it and spread out his fingers and then said, "Come

along! Hurry up! All those who want to perform ablution. The blessing is from

Allah.'' I saw the water gushing out from his fingers. So the people performed the

ablution and drank, and I tried to drink more of that water (beyond my thirst and

capacity), for I knew that it was a blessing. The sub-narrator said: I asked Jabir,

"How many persons were you then?" He replied, "We were one-thousand four

hundred men." Salim said: Jabir said, 1500.

surrounded by Idhkhir and Jalil (two kinds of good smelling grass). Would that one

day I would drink of the water of Majinna and would that Shama and Tafil (two

what He takes, and what He gives; and everything before His sight has a limited

period. So she should hope for Allah's reward and remain patient." She again sent

a message, beseeching him by Allah, to come. So the Prophet got up. and so did

we (and went there). The child was placed on his lap while his breath was

irregular. Tears flowed from the eyes of the Prophet. Sad said to him, "What is

this, O Allah's Apostle?" He said. "This Is Mercy which Allah has embedded in the

before the battle of Badr. The Prophet proceeded till he passed by a gathering in

which 'Abdullah bin Ubai bin Salul was present, and that had been before

'Abdullah embraced Islam. The gathering comprised of Muslims, polytheists, i.e.,

isolators and Jews. 'Abdullah bin Rawaha was also present in that gathering. When

dust raised by the donkey covered the gathering, 'Abdullah bin Ubai covered his

nose with his upper garment and said, "Do not trouble us with dust." The Prophet

greeted them, stopped and dismounted. Then he invited them to Allah (i.e., to

embrace Islam) and recited to them some verses of the Holy Qur'an. On that,

'Abdullah bin Ubai said, "O man ! There is nothing better than what you say if it is

true. Do not trouble us with it in our gathering, but return to your house, and if

somebody comes to you, teach him there." On that 'Abdullah bin Rawaha said,

Yes, O Allah's Apostle! Bring your teachings to our gathering, for we love that."

So the Muslims, the pagans and the Jews started abusing each other till they were

about to fight. The Prophet kept on quietening them till they became calm.

Thereupon the Prophet mounted his animal and proceeded till he entered upon Sad

bin Ubada. He said to him "O Sad! Have you not heard what Abu Hubab (i.e.,

'Abdullah bin Ubai) said?" Sad said, 'O Allah's Apostle! Excuse and forgive him,

for Allah has given you what He has given you. The people of this town (Medina

decided unanimously to crown him and make him their chief by placing a turban on

his head, but when that was prevented by the Truth which Allah had given you he

('Abdullah bin Ubai) was grieved out of jealously, and that was the reason which

Allah, I think you want me to die; and If this should happen, you would spend the

last part of the day sleeping with one of your wives!" The Prophet said, "Nay, I

should say, 'Oh my head!' I felt like sending for Abu Bakr and his son, and appoint

him as my successor lest some people claimed something or some others wished

something, but then I said (to myself), 'Allah would not allow it to be otherwise,

property in charity?"! He said, "No." I said, "Half of it?" He said, "No." I said "One

Leave me now," and added, "Call for me the old people of Quraish who emigrated

them to that (place) of epidemic." So 'Umar made an announcement, "I will ride

back to Medina in the morning, so you should do the same." Abu 'Ubaida bin

Al-Jarrah said (to 'Umar), "Are you running away from what Allah had ordained?"

'Umar said, "Would that someone else had said such a thing, O Abu 'Ubaida! Yes,

we are running from what Allah had ordained to what Allah has ordained. Don't

you agree that if you had camels that went down a valley having two places, one

green and the other dry, you would graze them on the green one only if Allah had

ordained that, and you would graze them on the dry one only if Allah had ordained

that?" At that time 'Abdur-Rahman bin 'Auf, who had been absent because of

some job, came and said, "I have some knowledge about this. I have heard Allah's

of treatment, but all in vain. Some of them said, "Will you go to the group (those

travelers) who have dismounted near you and see if one of them has something

useful?" They came to them and said, "O the group! Our leader has been bitten by

a snake (or stung by a scorpion) and we have treated him with everything but

nothing benefited him Has anyone of you anything useful?" One of them replied,

"Yes, by Allah, I know how to treat with a Ruqya. But. by Allah, we wanted you

to receive us as your guests but you refused. I will not treat your patient with a

Ruqya till you fix for us something as wages." Consequently they agreed to give

those travellers a flock of sheep. The man went with them (the people of the tribe)

and started spitting (on the bite) and reciting Surat-al-Fatiha till the patient was

healed and started walking as if he had not been sick. When the tribe people paid

them their wages they had agreed upon, some of them (the Prophet's companions)

said, "Distribute (the sheep)." But the one who treated with the Ruqya said, "Do

not do that till we go to Allah's Apostle and mention to him what has happened,

and see what he will order us." So they came to Allah's Apostle and mentioned the

with you."

kind of magic as it has such an effect). Then one day he said, "O 'Aisha do you

know that Allah has instructed me concerning the matter I asked Him about? Two

men came to me and one of them sat near my head and the other sat near my feet.

The one near my head asked the other. What is wrong with this man?' The latter

replied the is under the effect of magic The first one asked, Who has worked

magic on him?' The other replied Labid bin Al-A'sam, a man from Bani Zuraiq

who was an ally of the Jews and was a hypocrite.' The first one asked, What

material did he use)?' The other replied, 'A comb and the hair stuck to it.' The first

one asked, 'Where (is that)?' The other replied. 'In a skin of pollen of a male date

palm tree kept under a stone in the well of Dharwan' '' So the Prophet went to that

well and took out those things and said "That was the well which was shown to me

(in a dream) Its water looked like the infusion of Henna leaves and its date-palm

trees looked like the heads of devils." The Prophet added, "Then that thing was

taken out' I said (to the Prophet ) "Why do you not treat yourself with Nashra?"

He said, "Allah has cured me; I dislike to let evil spread among my people."

Narrated 'Aisha:

Magic was worked on Allah's Apostle so that he began to imagine that he had

done something although he had not. One day while he was with me, he invoked

Allah and invoked for a long period and then said, "O 'Aisha! Do you know that

Allah has instructed me regarding the matter I asked Him about?" I asked, "What

is that, O Allah's Apostle?" He said, "Two men came to me; one of them sat near

my head and the other sat near my feet. One of them asked his companion, 'What

is the disease of this man?' The other replied, 'He is under the effect of magic.' The

first one asked, 'Who has worked magic on him?" The other replied, 'Labid bin

A'sam, a Jew from the tribe of Bani Zuraiq.' The (first one asked), 'With what has

it been done?' The other replied, 'With a a comb and the hair stuck to it and a skin

of the pollen of a male datepalm tree.' The first one asked, 'Where is it?' The other

replied, 'In the well of Dharwan.' Then the Prophet went along with some of his

companions to that well and looked at that and there were date palms near to it.

Then he returned to me and said, 'By Allah the water of that well was (red) like the

infusion of Henna leaves and its date-palms were like the heads of devils" I said, O

Allah's Apostle! Did you take those materials out of the pollen skin?" He said, 'No!

As for me Allah has healed me and cured me and I was afraid that (by Showing

that to the people) I would spread evil among them when he ordered that the well

be filled up with earth, and it was filled up with earth "

Abu Bakr waited to accompany the Prophet and fed two she-camels he had on

the leaves of As-Samur tree regularly for four months One day while we were

sitting in our house at midday, someone said to Abu Bakr, "Here is Allah's

Apostle, coming with his head and a part of his face covered with a cloth-covering

at an hour he never used to come to us." Abu Bakr said, "Let my father and

mother be sacrificed for you, (O Prophet)! An urgent matter must have brought

you here at this hour." The Prophet came and asked the permission to enter, and

with you, go out." Abu Bakr replied, "(There is no stranger); they are your family.

Let my father be sacrificed for you, O Allah's Apostle!" The Prophet said, "I have

Abu Bakr said, 'O Allah's Apostles! Let my father be sacrificed for you. Take one

of these two she-camels of mine" The Prophet said. I will take it only after paying

its price." So we prepared their baggage and put their journey food In a leather

bag. And Asma' bint Abu Bakr cut a piece of her girdle and tied the mouth of the

leather bag with it. That is why she was called Dhat-an-Nitaqaln. Then the Prophet

and Abu Bakr went to a cave in a mountain called Thour and remained there for

three nights. 'Abdullah bin Abu Bakr. who was a young intelligent man. used to

stay with them at night and leave before dawn so that in the morning, he would he

with the Quraish at Mecca as if he had spent the night among them. If he heard of

any plot contrived by the Quraish against the Prophet and Abu Bakr, he would

understand it and (return to) inform them of it when it became dark. 'Amir bin

Fuhaira, the freed slave of Abu Bakr used to graze a flock of milch sheep for them

and he used to take those sheep to them when an hour had passed after the 'Isha

man throws his garment at another and the latter throws his at the former and the

barter is complete and valid without examining the two objects or being satisfied

with them (B) The two ways of wearing clothes were Ishtimal-as-Samma, i e., to

for you to remarry Rifa'a unless Abdur-Rahman has had sexual intercourse with

you." Then the Prophet saw two boys with 'Abdur-Rahman and asked (him), "Are

him as a crow resembles a crow,"

returned, I asked him and he said, "(They were) 'Aisha and Hafsa." Then he

added, "We never used to give significance to ladies in the days of the Pre-lslamic

period of ignorance, but when Islam came and Allah mentioned their rights, we

used to give them their rights but did not allow them to interfere in our affairs. Once

there was some dispute between me and my wife and she answered me back in a

loud voice. I said to her, 'Strange! You can retort in this way?' She said, 'Yes. Do

you say this to me while your daughter troubles Allah's Apostle?' So I went to

Hafsa and said to her, 'I warn you not to disobey Allah and His Apostle.' I first

went to Hafsa and then to Um Salama and told her the same. She said to me, 'O

'Umar! It surprises me that you interfere in our affairs so much that you would

poke your nose even into the affairs of Allah's Apostle and his wives.' So she

rejected my advice. There was an Ansari man; whenever he was absent from

Allah's Apostle and I was present there, I used to convey to him what had

happened (on that day), and when I was absent and he was present there, he used

to convey to me what had happened as regards news from Allah's Apostle .

During that time all the rulers of the nearby lands had surrendered to Allah's

Apostle except the king of Ghassan in Sham, and we were afraid that he might

attack us. All of a sudden the Ansari came and said, 'A great event has happened!'

I asked him, 'What is it? Has the Ghassani (king) come?' He said, 'Greater than

that! Allah's Apostle has divorced his wives! I went to them and found all of them

weeping in their dwellings, and the Prophet had ascended to an upper room of his.

At the door of the room there was a slave to whom I went and said, "Ask the

permission for me to enter." He admitted me and I entered to see the Prophet lying

on a mat that had left its imprint on his side. Under his head there was a leather

pillow stuffed with palm fires. Behold! There were some hides hanging there and

some grass for tanning. Then I mentioned what I had said to Hafsa and Um Salama

and what reply Um Salama had given me. Allah's Apostle smiled and stayed there

for twenty nine days and then came down." (See Hadith No. 648, Vol. 3 for
