Hadith : Bukhari Vol 9
Translation of Sahih Bukhari, Book 83:
Blood Money (Ad-Diyat)
Volume 9, Book 83, Number 1:
Narrated 'Abdullah:

A man said, "O Allah's Apostle! Which sin is the greatest in Allah's Sight?" The

Prophet said, "To set up a rival unto Allah though He Alone created you . " The

man said, "What is next?" The Prophet said, "To kill your son lest he should share

your food with you." The man said, "What is next?" The Prophet said, "To commit

illegal sexual intercourse with the wife of your neighbor." So Allah revealed in

confirmation of this narration:--

'And those who invoke not with Allah, any other god. Nor kill, such life as Allah

has forbidden except for just cause nor commit illegal sexual intercourse. And

whoever does this shall receive the punishment.' (25.68)

An ally of Bani Zuhra who took part in the battle of Badr with the Prophet, that he

my hand with the sword and cuts it off, and then takes refuge from me under a

tree, and says, 'I have surrendered to Allah (i.e. embraced Islam),' may I kill him

after he has said so?" Allah's Apostle said, "Do not kill him." Al-Miqdad said, "But

O Allah's Apostle! He had chopped off one of my hands and he said that after he

had cut it off. May I kill him?" The Prophet said. "Do not kill him for if you kill him,

he would be in the position in which you had been before you kill him, and you

would be in the position in which he was before he said the sentence." The Prophet

also said to Al-Miqdad, "If a faithful believer conceals his faith (Islam) from the

disbelievers, and then when he declares his Islam, you kill him, (you will be sinful).

Remember that you were also concealing your faith (Islam) at Mecca before."

"None has the right to be worshipped but Allah." The Ansari refrained from killing

him but I stabbed him with my spear till I killed him. When we reached (Medina),

this news reached the Prophet. He said to me, "O Usama! You killed him after he

had said, 'None has the right to be worshipped but Allah?"' I said, "O Allah's

Apostle! He said so in order to save himself." The Prophet said, "You killed him

after he had said, 'None has the right to be worshipped but Allah." The Prophet

kept on repeating that statement till I wished I had not been a Muslim before that

day.
Volume 9, Book 83, Number 12:
Narrated 'Ubada bin As-Samat:

I was among those Naqibs (selected leaders) who gave the Pledge of allegiance to

worship besides Allah, would not steal, would not commit illegal sexual

intercourse, would not kill a life which Allah has forbidden, would not commit

robbery, would not disobey (Allah and His Apostle), and if we fulfilled this pledge

we would have Paradise, but if we committed any one of these (sins), then our

back, for I heard Allah's Apostle saying, 'If two Muslims meet each other with their

swords then (both) the killer and the killed one are in the (Hell) Fire.' I said, 'O

Allah's Apostle! It is alright for the killer, but what about the killed one?' He said,

Volume 9, Book 83, Number 15:

"Who has done that to you, so-and-so or so and so?" (Some names were

agreed). The Jew was brought to the Prophet and the Prophet kept on questioning

him till he confessed, whereupon his head was crushed with stones.

Volume 9, Book 83, Number 16:
Narrated Anas bin Malik:

A girl wearing ornaments, went out at Medina. Somebody struck her with a stone.

She was brought to the Prophet while she was still alive. Allah's Apostle asked her,

"Did such-and-such a person strike you?" She raised her head, denying that. He

asked her a second time, saying, "Did so-and-so strike you?" She raised her head,

denying that. He said for the third time, "Did so-and-so strike you?" She lowered

her head, agreeing. Allah's Apostle then sent for the killer and killed him between

two stones.
Volume 9, Book 83, Number 17:
Narrated 'Abdullah:

Allah's Apostle said, "The blood of a Muslim who confesses that none has the right

to be worshipped but Allah and that I am His Apostle, cannot be shed except in

three cases: In Qisas for murder, a married person who commits illegal sexual

intercourse and the one who reverts from Islam (apostate) and leaves the

Muslims."
Volume 9, Book 83, Number 18:
Narrated Anas:

A Jew killed a girl so that he may steal her ornaments. He struck her with a stone,

and she was brought to the Prophet while she was still alive. The Prophet asked

her, "Did such-and-such person strike you?" She gestured with her head,

expressing denial. He asked her for the second time, and she again gestured with

her head, expressing denial. When he asked her for the third time, she beckoned,

"Yes." So the Prophet killed him (the Jew) with two stones.

Volume 9, Book 83, Number 19:
Narrated Abu Huraira:

In the year of the Conquest of Mecca, the tribe of Khuza'a killed a man from the

tribe of Bam Laith in revenge for a killed person belonging to them in the

Pre-lslamic Period of Ignorance. So Allah's Apostle got up saying, "Allah held

back the (army having) elephants from Mecca, but He let His Apostle and the

believers overpower the infidels (of Mecca). Beware! (Mecca is a sanctuary)!

Verily! Fighting in Mecca was not permitted for anybody before me, nor will it be

permitted for anybody after me; It was permitted for me only for a while (an hour

or so) of that day. No doubt! It is at this moment a sanctuary; its thorny shrubs

should not be uprooted; its trees should not be cut down; and its Luqata (fallen

things) should not be picked up except by the one who would look for its owner.

And if somebody is killed, his closest relative has the right to choose one of two

things, i.e., either the Blood money or retaliation by having the killer killed." Then a

man from Yemen, called Abu Shah, stood up and said, "Write that) for me, O

Allah's Apostle!" Allah's Apostle said (to his companions), "Write that for Abu

Shah." Then another man from Quraish got up, saying, "O Allah's Apostle! Except

Al-Idhkhir (a special kind of grass) as we use it in our houses and for graves."

Allah's Apostle said, "Except Al-idhkkir."
Volume 9, Book 83, Number 20:
Narrated Ibn 'Abbas:

For the children of Israel the punishment for crime was Al-Qisas only (i.e., the law

of equality in punishment) and the payment of Blood money was not permitted as

an alternate. But Allah said to this nation (Muslims): 'O you who believe! Qisas is

prescribed for you in case of murder, .....(up to) ...end of the Verse. (2.178)

Ibn 'Abbas added: Remission (forgiveness) in this Verse, means to accept the

Blood-money in an intentional murder. Ibn 'Abbas added: The Verse: 'Then the

relatives should demand Blood-money in a reasonable manner.' (2.178) means that

the demand should be reasonable and it is to be compensated with handsome

gratitude.
Volume 9, Book 83, Number 21:
Narrated Ibn 'Abbas:

The Prophet said, "The most hated persons to Allah are three: (1) A person who

deviates from the right conduct, i.e., an evil doer, in the Haram (sanctuaries of

Mecca and Medina); (2) a person who seeks that the traditions of the Pre-lslamic

Period of Ignorance, should remain in Islam (3) and a person who seeks to shed

somebody's blood without any right."
Volume 9, Book 83, Number 22:
Narrated 'Aisha:

The pagans were defeated on the day (of the battle) of Uhud. Satan shouted

among the people on the day of Uhud, "O Allah's worshippers! Beware of what is

behind you!" So the front file of the army attacked the back files (mistaking them

for the enemy) till they killed Al-Yaman. Hudhaifa (bin Al-Yaman) shouted, "My

father!" My father! But they killed him. Hudhaifa said, "May Allah forgive you."

(The narrator added: Some of the defeated pagans fled till they reached Taif.)

Volume 9, Book 83, Number 23:
Narrated Anas bin Malik:

A Jew crushed the head of a girl between two stones. It was said to her. "Who has

done this to you, such-and-such person, such-and-such person?" When the name

of the Jew was mentioned, she nodded with her head, agreeing. So the Jew was

brought and he confessed. The Prophet ordered that his head be crushed with the

stones. (Hammam said, "with two stones.")
Volume 9, Book 83, Number 24:

her orna
Volume 9, Book 83, Number 25:
Narrated 'Aisha:

We poured medicine into the mouth of the Prophet during his ailment. He said,

"Don't pour medicine into my mouth." (We thought he said that) out of the aversion

a patient usually has for medicines. When he improved and felt better he said,

"There is none of you but will be forced to drink medicine, except Al-'Abbas, for

he did not witness your deed."
Volume 9, Book 83, Number 26:
Narrated Abu Huraira:

That he heard Allah's Apostle saying, "We (Muslims) are the last (to come) but

a stone at him and destroy his eyes, there will be no blame on you."

Volume 9, Book 83, Number 28:
Narrated 'Aisha:

"When it was the day of (the battle of) Uhud, the pagans were defeated. Then

Satan shouted, "O Allah's worshipers! Beware of what is behind you!" So the front

files attacked the back files of the army. Hudhaifa looked, and behold, there was

his father, Al-Yaman (being attacked) ! He shouted (to his companions), "O

Allah's worshipers, my father, my father!" But by Allah, they did not stop till they

killed him (i.e., Hudhaifa's father). Hudhaifa said, "May Allah forgive you." ('Urwa

said, Hudhaifa continued asking Allah's Forgiveness for the killer of his father till he

died.
Volume 9, Book 83, Number 29:
Narrated Salama:

We went out with the Prophet to Khaibar. A man (from the companions) said, "O

'Amir! Let us hear some of your Huda (camel-driving songs.)" So he sang some of

them (i.e. a lyric in harmony with the camels walk). The Prophet said, "Who is the

driver (of these camels)?" They said, "Amir." The Prophet said, "May Allah bestow

His Mercy on him !" The people said, "O Allah's Apostle! Would that you let us

enjoy his company longer!" Then 'Amir was killed the following morning. The

people said, "The good deeds of 'Amir are lost as he has killed himself." I returned

at the time while they were talking about that. I went to the Prophet and said, "O

Allah's Prophet! Let my father be sacrificed for you! The people claim that 'Amir's

good deeds are lost." The Prophet said, "Whoever says so is a liar, for 'Amir will

have a double reward as he exerted himself to obey Allah and fought in Allah's

Cause. No other way of killing would have granted him greater reward."

Volume 9, Book 83, Number 30:
Narrated 'Imran bin Husain:

A man bit another man's hand and the latter pulled his hand out of his mouth by

force, causing two of his incisors (teeth) to fall out. They submitted their case to the

Prophet, who said, "One of you bit his brother as a male camel bites. (Go away),

there is no Diya (Blood-money) for you."
Volume 9, Book 83, Number 31:
Narrated Ya'la:

I went out in one of the Ghazwa and a man bit another man and as a result, an

incisor tooth of the former was pulled out. The Prophet cancelled the case.

Volume 9, Book 83, Number 32:
Narrated Anas:

The daughter of An-Nadr slapped a girl and broke her incisor tooth. They (the

relatives of that girl), came to the Prophet and he gave the order of Qisas (equality

in punishment).
Volume 9, Book 83, Number 33:

thumb.
Volume 9, Book 83, Number 34:
Narrated Ibn 'Abbas:

I heard the Prophet (saying the same as above Hadith 34).

Volume 9, Book 83, Number 35:
Narrated 'Aisha:

We poured medicine into the mouth of Allah's Apostle during his illness, and he

pointed out to us intending to say, "Don't pour medicine into my mouth." We

thought that his refusal was out of the aversion a patient usually has for medicine.

When he improved and felt a bit better he said (to us.) "Didn't I forbid you to pour

medicine into my mouth?" We said, "We thought (you did so) because of the

aversion, one usually have for medicine." Allah's Apostle said, "There is none of

you but will be forced to drink medicine, and I will watch you, except Al-'Abbas,

for he did not witness this act of yours."
Volume 9, Book 83, Number 36:
Narrated Sahl bin Abi Hathma:

(a man from the Ansar) that a number of people from his tribe went to Khaibar and

dispersed, and then they found one of them murdered. They said to the people

with whom the corpse had been found, "You have killed our companion!" Those

people said, "Neither have we killed him, nor do we know his killer." The

bereaved group went to the Prophet and said, "O Allah's Apostle! We went to

Khaibar and found one of us murdered." The Prophet said, "Let the older among

you come forward and speak." Then the Prophet said, to them, "Bring your proof

against the killer." They said "We have no proof." The Prophet said, "Then they

(the defendants) will take an oath." They said, "We do not accept the oaths of the

Jews." Allah's Apostle did not like that the Blood-money of the killed one be lost

without compensation, so he paid one-hundred camels out of the camels of Zakat

(to the relatives of the deceased) as Diya (Blood-money).

Volume 9, Book 83, Number 37:
Narrated Abu Qilaba:

Once 'Umar bin 'Abdul 'Aziz sat on his throne in the courtyard of his house so that

the people might gather before him. Then he admitted them and (when they came

in), he said, "What do you think of Al-Qasama?" They said, "We say that it is

lawful to depend on Al-Qasama in Qisas, as the previous Muslim Caliphs carried

out Qisas depending on it." Then he said to me, "O Abu Qilaba! What do you say

about it?" He let me appear before the people and I said, "O Chief of the

Believers! You have the chiefs of the army staff and the nobles of the Arabs. If fifty

of them testified that a married man had committed illegal sexual intercourse in

Damascus but they had not seen him (doing so), would you stone him?" He said,

"No." I said, "If fifty of them testified that a man had committed theft in Hums,

would you cut off his hand though they did not see him?" He replied, "No." I said,

"By Allah, Allah's Apostle never killed anyone except in one of the following three

situations: (1) A person who killed somebody unjustly, was killed (in Qisas,) (2) a

married person who committed illegal sexual intercourse and (3) a man who fought

against Allah and His Apostle and deserted Islam and became an apostate." Then

the people said, "Didn't Anas bin Malik narrate that Allah's Apostle cut off the

hands of the thieves, branded their eyes and then, threw them in the sun?" I said, "I

shall tell you the narration of Anas. Anas said: "Eight persons from the tribe of 'Ukl

came to Allah's Apostle and gave the Pledge of allegiance for Islam (became

Muslim). The climate of the place (Medina) did not suit them, so they became sick

and complained about that to Allah's Apostle. He said (to them ), "Won't you go

out with the shepherd of our camels and drink of the camels' milk and urine (as

medicine)?" They said, "Yes." So they went out and drank the camels' milk and

urine, and after they became healthy, they killed the shepherd of Allah's Apostle

and took away all the camels. This news reached Allah's Apostle , so he sent

(men) to follow their traces and they were captured and brought (to the Prophet).

He then ordered to cut their hands and feet, and their eyes were branded with

heated pieces of iron, and then he threw them in the sun till they died." I said,

"What can be worse than what those people did? They deserted Islam, committed

murder and theft."

Then 'Anbasa bin Said said, "By Allah, I never heard a narration like this of today."

I said, "O 'Anbasa! You deny my narration?" 'Anbasa said, "No, but you have

related the narration in the way it should be related. By Allah, these people are in

welfare as long as this Sheikh (Abu Qilaba) is among them." I added, "Indeed in

this event there has been a tradition set by Allah's Apostle. The narrator added:

Some Ansari people came to the Prophet and discussed some matters with him, a

man from amongst them went out and was murdered. Those people went out after

him, and behold, their companion was swimming in blood. They returned to Allah's

Apostle and said to him, "O Allah's Apostle, we have found our companion who

had talked with us and gone out before us, swimming in blood (killed)." Allah's

Apostle went out and asked them, "Whom do you suspect or whom do you think

has killed him?" They said, "We think that the Jews have killed him." The Prophet

sent for the Jews and asked them, "Did you kill this (person)?" They replied, "No."

He asked the Al-Ansars, "Do you agree that I let fifty Jews take an oath that they

have not killed him?" They said, "It matters little for the Jews to kill us all and then

take false oaths." He said, "Then would you like to receive the Diya after fifty of

you have taken an oath (that the Jews have killed your man)?" They said, "We will

not take the oath." Then the Prophet himself paid them the Diya (Blood-money)."

The narrator added, "The tribe of Hudhail repudiated one of their men (for his evil

conduct) in the Pre-lslamic period of Ignorance.

Then, at a place called Al-Batha' (near Mecca), the man attacked a Yemenite

family at night to steal from them, but a. man from the family noticed him and struck

him with his sword and killed him. The tribe of Hudhail came and captured the

Yemenite and brought him to 'Umar during the Hajj season and said, "He has killed

our companion." The Yemenite said, "But these people had repudiated him (i.e.,

their companion)." 'Umar said, "Let fifty persons of Hudhail swear that they had

not repudiated him." So forty-nine of them took the oath and then a person

belonging to them, came from Sham and they requested him to swear similarly, but

he paid one-thousand Dirhams instead of taking the oath. They called another man

instead of him and the new man shook hands with the brother of the deceased.

Some people said, "We and those fifty men who had taken false oaths

(Al-Qasama) set out, and when they reached a place called Nakhlah, it started

raining so they entered a cave in the mountain, and the cave collapsed on those fifty

men who took the false oath, and all of them died except the two persons who had

shaken hands with each other. They escaped death but a stone fell on the leg of the

brother of the deceased and broke it, whereupon he survived for one year and

then died." I further said, "'Abdul Malik bin Marwan sentenced a man to death in

Qisas (equality in punishment) for murder, basing his judgment on Al-Qasama, but

later on he regretted that judgment and ordered that the names of the fifty persons

who had taken the oath (Al-Qasama), be erased from the register, and he exiled

them in Sham."
Volume 9, Book 83, Number 38a:
Narrated Anas:

A man peeped into one of the dwelling places of the Prophet. The Prophet got up

and aimed a sharp-edged arrow head (or wooden stick) at him to poke him

stealthily.
Volume 9, Book 83, Number 38:
Narrated Sahl bin Sa'd As-Sa'idi:

A man peeped through a hole in the door of Allah's Apostle's house, and at that

time, Allah's Apostle had a Midri (an iron comb or bar) with which he was rubbing

his head. So when Allah's Apostle saw him, he said (to him), "If I had been sure

that you were looking at me (through the door), I would have poked your eye with

this (sharp iron bar)." Allah's Apostle added, "The asking for permission to enter

has been enjoined so that one may not look unlawfully (at what there is in the

house without the permission of its people)."
Volume 9, Book 83, Number 39:
Narrated Abu Huraira:

Abul Qasim said, "If any person peeps at you without your permission and you

Diya).

Volume 9, Book 83, Number 42:
Narrated Hisham's father:

'Umar asked the people, "Who heard the Prophet giving his verdict regarding

abortions?" Al-Mughira said, "I heard him judging that a male or female slave

statement." Muhammad bin Maslama said, "I testify that the Prophet gave such a

judgment."

Allah's Apostle gave a verdict regarding an aborted fetus of a woman from Bani

Lihyan that the killer (of the fetus) should give a male or female slave (as a Diya)

the verdict that her inheritance be given to her children and her husband and the

Diya be paid by her 'Asaba.
Volume 9, Book 83, Number 45:
Narrated Abu Huraira:

Two women from Hudhail fought with each other and one of them hit the other

with a stone that killed her and what was in her womb. The relatives of the killer

woman was to be paid by the 'Asaba (near relatives) of the killer.

home and on journeys; by Allah, he never said to me for anything which I did: Why

the state."

what is in the Quran and the ability (gift) of understanding Allah's Book which He

may endow a man, with and what is written in this sheet of paper." I asked, "What

A Jew whose face had been slapped (by someone), came to the Prophet and said,

"O Muhammad! A man from your Ansari companions slapped me. " The Prophet

said, "Call him". They called him and the Prophet asked him, "Why did you slap his

face?" He said, "O Allah's Apostle! While I was passing by the Jews, I heard him

saying, 'By Him Who chose Moses above all the human beings.' I said

(protestingly), 'Even above Muhammad?' So I became furious and slapped him."

The Prophet said, "Do not give me preference to other prophets, for the people

will become unconscious on the Day of Resurrection and I will be the first to gain

conscious, and behold, I will Find Moses holding one of the pillars of the Throne

(of Allah). Then I will not know whether he has become conscious before me or he

has been exempted because of his unconsciousness at the mountain (during his

worldly life) which he received."

Narrated 'Abdullah:

When the Verse: 'It is those who believe and confuse not their belief with wrong

(i.e., worshipping others besides Allah): (6.82) was revealed, it became very hard

on the companions of the Prophet and they said, "Who among us has not confused

his belief with wrong (oppression)?" On that, Allah's Apostle said, "This is not

meant (by the Verse). Don't you listen to Luqman's statement: 'Verily! Joining

others in worship with Allah is a great wrong indeed.' (31.13)

Volume 9, Book 84, Number 54:
Narrated Abu Bakra:

The Prophet. said, "The biggest of the great sins are: To join others in worship with

Allah, to be undutiful to one's parents, and to give a false witness." He repeated it

wished he would stop saying it. (See Hadith No.7, Vol. 8)

Narrated 'Abdullah bin 'Amr:

A bedouin came to the Prophet and said, "O Allah's Apostle! What are the biggest

sins?: The Prophet said, "To join others in worship with Allah." The bedouin said,

"What is next?" The Prophet said, "To be undutiful to one's parents." The bedouin

said "What is next?" The Prophet said "To take an oath 'Al-Ghamus." The bedouin

said, "What is an oath 'Al-Ghamus'?" The Prophet said, "The false oath through

which one deprives a Muslim of his property (unjustly)."

Volume 9, Book 84, Number 56:
Narrated Ibn Mas'ud:

A man said, "O Allah's Apostle! Shall we be punished for what we did in the

whoever does evil in Islam will be punished for his former and later (bad deeds)."

Volume 9, Book 84, Number 57:
Narrated 'Ikrima:

Some Zanadiqa (atheists) were brought to 'Ali and he burnt them. The news of this

event, reached Ibn 'Abbas who said, "If I had been in his place, I would not have

burnt them, as Allah's Apostle forbade it, saying, 'Do not punish anybody with

Allah's punishment (fire).' I would have killed them according to the statement of

Allah's Apostle, 'Whoever changed his Islamic religion, then kill him.'"

Abu Musa said, "I came to the Prophet along with two men (from the tribe) of

Ash'ariyin, one on my right and the other on my left, while Allah's Apostle was

brushing his teeth (with a Siwak), and both men asked him for some employment.

The Prophet said, 'O Abu Musa (O 'Abdullah bin Qais!).' I said, 'By Him Who

sent you with the Truth, these two men did not tell me what was in their hearts and

I did not feel (realize) that they were seeking employment.' As if I were looking

now at his Siwak being drawn to a corner under his lips, and he said, 'We never

(or, we do not) appoint for our affairs anyone who seeks to be employed. But O

Abu Musa! (or 'Abdullah bin Qais!) Go to Yemen.'" The Prophet then sent

Mu'adh bin Jabal after him and when Mu'adh reached him, he spread out a cushion

for him and requested him to get down (and sit on the cushion). Behold: There was

a fettered man beside Abu Muisa. Mu'adh asked, "Who is this (man)?" Abu Muisa

said, "He was a Jew and became a Muslim and then reverted back to Judaism."

Then Abu Muisa requested Mu'adh to sit down but Mu'adh said, "I will not sit

down till he has been killed. This is the judgment of Allah and His Apostle (for such

cases) and repeated it thrice. Then Abu Musa ordered that the man be killed, and

he was killed. Abu Musa added, "Then we discussed the night prayers and one of

us said, 'I pray and sleep, and I hope that Allah will reward me for my sleep as

well as for my prayers.'"
Volume 9, Book 84, Number 59:
Narrated Abu Huraira:

When the Prophet died and Abu Bakr became his successor and some of the

Arabs reverted to disbelief, 'Umar said, "O Abu Bakr! How can you fight these

people although Allah's Apostle said, 'I have been ordered to fight the people till

they say: 'None has the right to be worshipped but Allah, 'and whoever said,

'None has the right to be worshipped but Allah', Allah will save his property and

his life from me, unless (he does something for which he receives legal punishment)

justly, and his account will be with Allah?' "Abu Bakr said, "By Allah! I will fight

whoever differentiates between prayers and Zakat as Zakat is the right to be taken

from property (according to Allah's Orders). By Allah! If they refused to pay me

even a kid they used to pay to Allah's Apostle, I would fight with them for

withholding it." 'Umar said, "By Allah: It was nothing, but I noticed that Allah

opened Abu Bakr's chest towards the decision to fight, therefore I realized that his

decision was right."
Volume 9, Book 84, Number 60:
Narrated Anas bin Malik:

A Jew passed by Allah's Apostle and said, "As-Samu 'Alaika." Allah's Apostle

said in reply, "We 'Alaika." Allah's Apostle then said to his companions, "Do you

know what he (the Jew) has said? He said, 'As-Samu 'Alaika.'" They said, "O

Allah's Apostle! Shall we kill him?" The Prophet, said, "No. When the people of

the Book greet you, say: 'Wa 'Alaikum.'"
Volume 9, Book 84, Number 61:
Narrated 'Aisha:

A group of Jews asked permission to visit the Prophet (and when they were

admitted) they said, "As-Samu 'Alaika (Death be upon you)." I said (to them), "But

death and the curse of Allah be upon you!" The Prophet said, "O 'Aisha! Allah is

kind and lenient and likes that one should be kind and lenient in all matters." I said,

"Haven't you heard what they said?" He said, "I said (to them), 'Wa 'Alaikum (and

upon you).
Volume 9, Book 84, Number 62:

Volume 9, Book 84, Number 63:
Narrated 'Abdullah:

As if I am looking at the Prophet while he was speaking about one of the prophets

whose people have beaten and wounded him, and he was wiping the blood off his

face and saying, "O Lord! Forgive my, people as they do not know."

Volume 9, Book 84, Number 64:
Narrated 'Ali:

Whenever I tell you a narration from Allah's Apostle, by Allah, I would rather fall

down from the sky than ascribe a false statement to him, but if I tell you something

between me and you (not a Hadith) then it was indeed a trick (i.e., I may say things

just to cheat my enemy). No doubt I heard Allah's Apostle saying, "During the last

days there will appear some young foolish people who will say the best words but

their faith will not go beyond their throats (i.e. they will have no faith) and will go

out from (leave) their religion as an arrow goes out of the game. So, where-ever

you find them, kill them, for who-ever kills them shall have reward on the Day of

Resurrection."
Volume 9, Book 84, Number 65:
Narrated 'Abdullah bin 'Amr bin Yasar:

That they visited Abu Sa'id Al-Khudri and asked him about Al-Harauriyya, a

special unorthodox religious sect, "Did you hear the Prophet saying anything about

them?" Abu Sa'id said, "I do not know what Al-Harauriyya is, but I heard the

Prophet saying, "There will appear in this nation---- he did not say: From this

nation ---- a group of people so pious apparently that you will consider your

prayers inferior to their prayers, but they will recite the Quran, the teachings of

which will not go beyond their throats and will go out of their religion as an arrow

darts through the game, whereupon the archer may look at his arrow, its Nasl at its

Risaf and its Fuqa to see whether it is blood-stained or not (i.e. they will have not

even a trace of Islam in them)."
Volume 9, Book 84, Number 66:
Narrated 'Abdullah bin 'Umar:

Regarding Al-Harauriyya: The Prophet said, "They will go out of Islam as an arrow

darts out of the game's body.'
Volume 9, Book 84, Number 67:
Narrated Abu Sa'id:

While the Prophet was distributing (something, 'Abdullah bin Dhil Khawaisira

At-Tamimi came and said, "Be just, O Allah's Apostle!" The Prophet said, "Woe

to you ! Who would be just if I were not?" 'Umar bin Al-Khattab said, "Allow me

to cut off his neck ! " The Prophet said, " Leave him, for he has companions, and if

you compare your prayers with their prayers and your fasting with theirs, you will

look down upon your prayers and fasting, in comparison to theirs. Yet they will go

out of the religion as an arrow darts through the game's body in which case, if the

Qudhadh of the arrow is examined, nothing will be found on it, and when its Nasl is

examined, nothing will be found on it; and then its Nadiyi is examined, nothing will

be found on it. The arrow has been too fast to be smeared by dung and blood. The

sign by which these people will be recognized will be a man whose one hand (or

breast) will be like the breast of a woman (or like a moving piece of flesh). These

people will appear when there will be differences among the people (Muslims)."

Abu Sa'id added: I testify that I heard this from the Prophet and also testify that

'Ali killed those people while I was with him. The man with the description given by

the Prophet was brought to 'Ali. The following Verses were revealed in connection

with that very person (i.e., 'Abdullah bin Dhil-Khawaisira At-Tarnimi): 'And among

them are men who accuse you (O Muhammad) in the matter of (the distribution of)

the alms.' (9.58)
Volume 9, Book 84, Number 68:
Narrated Yusair bin 'Amr:

I asked Sahl bin Hunaif, "Did you hear the Prophet saying anything about

Al-Khawarij?" He said, "I heard him saying while pointing his hand towards Iraq.

"There will appear in it (i.e, Iraq) some people who will recite the Quran but it will

not go beyond their throats, and they will go out from (leave) Islam as an arrow

darts through the game's body.' "

When the Verse:--'Those who believe and did not confuse their belief with wrong

(worshipping others besides Allah).' (6.82) was revealed, it was hard on the

companions of the Prophet and they said, "Who among us has not wronged

(oppressed) himself?" Allah's Apostle said, "The meaning of the Verse is not as

you think, but it is as Luqman said to his son, 'O my son! Join not in worship others

with Allah, Verily! Joining others in worship with Allah is a great wrong indeed.'"

Once Allah's Apostle came to me in the morning, and a man among us said,

"Where is Malik bin Ad-Dukhshun?" Another man from us replied, "He is a

hypocrite who does not love Allah and His Apostle." The Prophet said, "Don't you

think that he says: None has the right to be worshipped but Allah, only for Allah's

sake?" They replied, "Yes" The Prophet said, "Nobody will meet Allah with that

saying on the Day of Resurrection, but Allah will save him from the Fire."

Volume 9, Book 84, Number 72:
Narrated:

Abu 'Abdur-Rahman and Hibban bin 'Atiyya had a dispute. Abu 'Abdur-Rahman

said to Hibban, "You know what made your companions (i.e. Ali) dare to shed

blood." Hibban said, "Come on! What is that?" 'Abdur-Rahman said, "Something I

heard him saying." The other said, "What was it?" 'AbdurRahman said, "'Ali said,

Allah's Apostle sent for me, Az-Zubair and Abu Marthad, and all of us were

cavalry men, and said, 'Proceed to Raudat-Hajj (Abu Salama said that Abu

'Awana called it like this, i.e., Hajj where there is a woman carrying a letter from

Hatib bin Abi Balta'a to the pagans (of Mecca). So bring that letter to me.' So we

proceeded riding on our horses till we overtook her at the same place of which

Allah's Apostle had told us. She was traveling on her camel. In that letter Hatib had

written to the Meccans about the proposed attached of Allah's Apostle against

them. We asked her, "Where is the letter which is with you?' She replied, 'I haven't

got any letter.' So we made her camel kneel down and searched her luggage, but

we did not find anything. My two companions said, 'We do not think that she has

got a letter.' I said, 'We know that Allah's Apostle has not told a lie.'"

Then 'Ali took an oath saying, "By Him by Whom one should swear! You shall

either bring out the letter or we shall strip off your clothes." She then stretched out

her hand for her girdle (round her waist) and brought out the paper (letter). They

took the letter to Allah's Apostle. 'Umar said, "O Allah's Apostle! (Hatib) has

betrayed Allah, His Apostle and the believers; let me chop off his neck!" Allah's

Apostle said, "O Hatib! What obliged you to do what you have done?" Hatib

replied, "O Allah's Apostle! Why (for what reason) should I not believe in Allah

and His Apostle? But I intended to do the (Mecca) people a favor by virtue of

which my family and property may be protected as there is none of your

companions but has some of his people (relatives) whom Allah urges to protect his

family and property." The Prophet said, "He has said the truth; therefore, do not

say anything to him except good." 'Umar again said, "O Allah's Apostle! He has

betrayed Allah, His Apostle and the believers; let me chop his neck off!" The

Prophet said, "Isn't he from those who fought the battle of Badr? And what do you

know, Allah might have looked at them (Badr warriors) and said (to them), 'Do

what you like, for I have granted you Paradise?' " On that, 'Umar's eyes became

flooded with tears and he said, "Allah and His Apostle know best."

Will you invoke Allah for us?" He said, "Among those who were before you a

(believer) used to be seized and, a pit used to be dug for him and then he used to

be placed in it. Then a saw used to be brought and put on his head which would be

split into two halves. His flesh might be combed with iron combs and removed

from his bones, yet, all that did not cause him to revert from his religion. By Allah!

This religion (Islam) will be completed (and triumph) till a rider (traveler) goes from

San'a' (the capital of Yemen) to Hadramout fearing nobody except Allah and the

wolf lest it should trouble his sheep, but you are impatient." (See Hadith No. 191,

gather). The Prophet stood up and addressed them, "O Assembly of Jews!

Embrace Islam and you will be safe!" The Jews replied, "O Aba-l-Qasim! You

have conveyed Allah's message to us." The Prophet said, "That is what I want

(from you)." He repeated his first statement for the second time, and they said,

"You have conveyed Allah's message, O Aba-l-Qasim." Then he said it for the

third time and added, "You should Know that the earth belongs to Allah and His

Apostle, and I want to exile you fro,,, this land, so whoever among you owns some

property, can sell it, otherwise you should know that the Earth belongs to Allah

and His Apostle." (See Hadith No. 392, Vol. 4)

Apostle! Tell me what Allah has enjoined on me as regards prayers." The Prophet

said, "You have to offer perfectly the five (compulsory) prayers in a day and a

night (24 hrs.), except if you want to perform some extra optional prayers." The

bedouin said, "Tell me what Allah has enjoined on me as regards fasting." The

Prophet said, "You have to observe fast during the month of Ramadan except if

you fast some extra optional fast." The bedouin said, "Tell me what Allah has

enjoined on me as regard Zakat." The Prophet then told him the Islamic laws and

regulations whereupon the bedouin said, "By Him Who has honored you, I will not

perform any optional deeds of worship and I will not leave anything of what Allah

has enjoined on me." Allah's Apostle said, "He will be successful if he has told the

truth (or he will enter Paradise if he said the truth)." And some people said, "The

Zakat for one-hundred and twenty camels is two Hiqqas, and if the Zakat payer

slaughters the camels intentionally or gives them as a present or plays some other

trick in order to avoid the Zakat, then there is no harm (in it) for him.

which, Zakat has not been paid) of anyone of you will appear in the shape of a

huge bald headed poisonous male snake and its owner will run away from it, but it

will follow him and say, 'I am your Kanz.'" The Prophet added, "By Allah, that

snake will keep on following him until he stretches out his hand and let the snake

swallow it." Allah's Apostle added, "If the owner of camels does not pay their

Zakat, then, on the Day of Resurrection those camels will come to him and will

strike his face with their hooves." Some people said: Concerning a man who has

camels, and is afraid that Zakat will be due so he sells those camels for similar

camels or for sheep or cows or money one day before Zakat becomes due in

order to avoid payment of their Zakat cunningly! "He has not to pay anything." The

same scholar said, "If one pays Zakat of his camels one day or one year prior to

the end of the year (by the end of which Zakat becomes due), his Zakat will be

valid."

Sa'd bin 'Ubada Al-Ansari sought the verdict of Allah's Apostle regarding a vow

made by his mother who had died before fulfilling it. Allah's Apostle said, "Fulfill it

on her behalf." Some people said, "If the number of camels reaches twenty, then

their owner has to pay four sheep as Zakat; and if their owner gives them as a gift

or sells them in order to escape the payment of Zakat cunningly before the

completion of a year, then he is not to pay anything, and if he slaughters them and

then dies, then no Zakat is to be taken from his property."

and marry one's daughter to that man (at the same time) without Mahr (in both

cases); or to marry the sister of a man and marry one's own sister to that man

without Mahr." Some people said, "If one, by a trick, marries on the basis of

Shighar, the marriage is valid but its condition is illegal." The same scholar said

regarding Al-Mut'a, "The marriage is invalid and its condition is illegal." Some

others said, "The Mut'a and the Shighar are permissible but the condition is illegal."

said, "It is about an orphan girl under the custody of her guardian who being

attracted by her wealth and beauty wants to marry her with Mahr less than other

women of her status. So such guardians were forbidden to marry them unless they

treat them justly by giving them their full Mahr. Then the people sought the verdict

of Allah's Apostle for such cases, whereupon Allah revealed: 'They ask your

instruction concerning women..' (4.127) (The sub-narrator then mentioned the

and the matron should not be married till she is asked whether she agrees to marry

or not." It was asked, "O Allah's Apostle! How will she(the virgin) express her

consent?" He said, "By keeping silent." Some people said, "If a virgin is not asked

for her consent and she is not married, and then a man, by playing a trick presents

two false witnesses that he has married her with her consent and the judge confirms

his marriage as a true one, and the husband knows that the witnesses were false

ones, then there is no harm for him to consummate his marriage with her and the

marriage is regarded as valid."

A woman from the offspring of Ja'far was afraid lest her guardian marry her (to

said, "By keeping silent (when asked her consent)." Some people said, "If a man,

by playing a trick, presents two false witnesses before the judge to testify that he

has married a matron with her consent and the judge confirms his marriage, and the

husband is sure that he has never married her (before), then such a marriage will be

considered as a legal one and he may live with her as husband."

Volume 9, Book 86, Number 101:
Narrated 'Aisha:

Allah's Apostle said, "It is essential to have the consent of a virgin (for the

marriage). I said, "A virgin feels shy." The Prophet; said, "Her silence means her

consent." Some people said, "If a man falls in love with an orphan slave girl or a

virgin and she refuses (him) and then he makes a trick by bringing two false

witnesses to testify that he has married her, and then she attains the age of puberty

and agrees to marry him and the judge accepts the false witness and the husband

knows that the witnesses were false ones, he may consummate his marriage."

Volume 9, Book 86, Number 102:
Narrated 'Aisha:

Allah's Apostle used to like sweets and also used to like honey, and whenever he

finished the 'Asr prayer, he used to visit his wives and stay with them. Once he

visited Hafsa and remained with her longer than the period he used to stay, so I

enquired about it. It was said to me, "A woman from her tribe gave her a leather

skin containing honey as a present, and she gave some of it to Allah's Apostle to

drink." I said, "By Allah, we will play a trick on him." So I mentioned the story to

Sauda (the wife of the Prophet) and said to her, "When he enters upon you, he will

come near to you whereupon you should say to him, 'O Allah's Apostle! Have you

eaten Maghafir?' He will say, 'No.' Then you say to him, 'What is this bad smell? '

And it would be very hard on Allah's Apostle that a bad smell should be found on

his body. He will say, 'Hafsa has given me a drink of honey.' Then you should say

to him, 'Its bees must have sucked from the Al-'Urfut (a foul smelling flower).' I

too, will tell him the same. And you, O Saifya, say the same."

So when the Prophet entered upon Sauda (the following happened). Sauda said,

"By Him except Whom none has the right to be worshipped, I was about to say to

him what you had told me to say while he was still at the gate because of fear from

you. But when Allah 's Apostle came near to me, I said to him, 'O Allah's Apostle!

Have you eaten Maghafir?' He replied, 'No.' I said, 'What about this smell?' He

said, 'Hafsa has given me a drink of honey.' I said, 'Its bees must have sucked

Al-'Urfut.' " When he entered upon me, I told him the same as that, and when he

entered upon Safiya, she too told him the same. So when he visited Hafsa again,

she said to him, "O Allah's Apostle! Shall I give you a drink of it (honey)?" He

said, "I have no desire for it." Sauda said, Subhan Allah! We have deprived him of

it (honey)." I said to her, "Be quiet!"
Volume 9, Book 86, Number 103:
Narrated 'Abdullah bin 'Amir bin Rabi'a:

'Umar bin Al-Khattab left for Sham, and when he reached a placed called Sargh,

he came to know that there was an outbreak of an epidemic (of plague) in Sham.

Then 'AbdurRahman bin 'Auf told him that Allah's Apostle said, "If you hear the

news of an outbreak of an epidemic (plague) in a certain place, do not enter that

place: and if the epidemic falls in a place while you are present in it, do not leave

that place to escape from the epidemic." So 'Umar returned from Sargh.

Volume 9, Book 86, Number 104:
Narrated 'Amir bin Sa'd bin Abi Waqqas:

That he heard Usama bin Zaid speaking to Sa'd, saying, "Allah's Apostle

mentioned the plague and said, 'It is a means of punishment with which some

nations were punished and some of it has remained, and it appears now and then.

So whoever hears that there is an outbreak of plague in some land, he should not

go to that land, and if the plague breaks out in the land where one is already

present, one should not run away from that land, escaping from the plague."

Volume 9, Book 86, Number 105:
Narrated Ibn 'Abbas:

The Prophet said, "The one who takes back his gift is like a dog swallowing its

own vomit, and we (believers) should not act according to this bad example."

Volume 9, Book 86, Number 106:
Narrated Jabir bin 'Abdullah:

The Prophet has decreed that preemption is valid in all cases where the real estate

concerned has not been divided, but if the boundaries are established and the ways

are made, then there is no preemption. A man said, "Preemption is only for the

neighbor," and then he makes invalid what he has confirmed. He said, "If someone

wants to buy a house and being afraid that the neighbor (of the house) may buy it

through preemption, he buys one share out of one hundred shares of the house and

then buys the rest of the house, then the neighbor can only have the right of

preemption for the first share but not for the rest of the house; and the buyer may

play such a trick in this case."
Volume 9, Book 86, Number 107:
Narrated 'Amr bin Ash-Sharid:

Al-Miswar bin Makhrama came and put his hand on my shoulder and I

accompanied him to Sa'd. Abu Rafi' said to Al-Miswar, "Won't you order this (i.e.

Sa'd) to buy my house which is in my yard?" Sa'd said, "I will not offer more than

four hundred in installments over a fixed period." Abu Rafi said, "I was offered five

hundred cash but I refused. Had I not heard the Prophet saying, 'A neighbor is

more entitled to receive the care of his neighbor,' I would not have sold it to you."

The narrator said, to Sufyan: Ma'mar did not say so. Sufyan said, "But he did say

so to me." Some people said, "If someone wants to sell a house and deprived

somebody of the right of preemption, he has the right to play a trick to render the

preemption invalid. And that is by giving the house to the buyer as a present and

marking its boundaries and giving it to him. The buyer then gives the seller

one-thousand Dirham as compensation in which case the preemptor loses his right

of preemption."

Narrated 'Amr bin Ash-Sharid: Abu Rafi' said that Sa'd offered him four hundred

Mithqal of gold for a house. Abu Rafi ' said, "If I had not heard Allah's Apostle

saying, 'A neighbor has more right to be taken care of by his neighbor,' then I

would not have given it to you." Some people said, "If one has bought a portion of

a house and wants to cancel the right of preemption, he may give it as a present to

his little son and he will not be obliged to take an oath."

Volume 9, Book 86, Number 108:
Narrated Abu Humaid As-Sa'idi:

Allah's Apostle appointed a man called Ibn Al-Lutabiyya to collect the Zakat from

Bani Sulaim's tribe. When he returned, the Prophet called him to account. He said

(to the Prophet, 'This is your money, and this has been given to me as a gift." On

that, Allah's Apostle said, "Why didn't you stay in your father's and mother's house

to see whether you will be given gifts or not if you are telling the truth?" Then the

Prophet addressed us, and after praising and glorifying Allah, he said: "Amma

Ba'du", I employ a man from among you to manage some affair of what Allah has

put under my custody, and then he comes to me and says, 'This is your money and

this has been given to me as a gift. Why didn't he stay in his father's and mother's

home to see whether he will be given gifts or not? By Allah, not anyone of you

takes a thing unlawfully but he will meet Allah on the Day of Resurrection, carrying

that thing. I do not want to see any of you carrying a grunting camel or a mooing

cow or a bleating sheep on meeting Allah." Then the Prophet raised both his hands

till the whiteness of his armpits became visible, and he said, "O Allah! Haven't I

have conveyed (Your Message)?" The narrator added: My eyes witnessed and my

ears heard (that Hadith).
Volume 9, Book 86, Number 109:
Narrated Abu Rafi':

The Prophet said, "The neighbor has more right to be taken care of by his neighbor

(than anyone else)." Some men said, "If one wants to buy a house for 20,000

Dirhams then there is no harm to play a trick to deprive somebody of preemption

by buying it (just on paper) with 20,000 Dirhams but paying to the seller only

9,999 Dirhams in cash and then agree with the seller to pay only one Dinar in cash

for the rest of the price (i.e. 10,001 Dirhams). If the preemptor offers 20,000

Dirhams for the house, he can buy it otherwise he has no right to buy it (by this

trick he got out of preemption). If the house proves to belong to somebody else

other than the seller, the buyer should take back from the seller what he has paid,

i.e., 9,999 Dirhams and one Dinar, because if the house proves to belong to

somebody else, so the whole bargain (deal) is unlawful. If the buyer finds a defect

in the house and it does not belong to somebody other than the seller, the buyer

may return it and receive 20,000 Dirhams (instead of 9999 Dirham plus one Dinar)

which he actually paid.' Abu 'Abdullah said, "So that man allows (some people) the

playing of tricks amongst the Muslims (although) the Prophet said, 'In dealing with

Muslims one should not sell them sick (animals) or bad things or stolen things."

Volume 9, Book 86, Number 110:
Narrated 'Amr bin Ash-Sharid:

Abu Rafi' sold a house to Sa'd bin Malik for four-hundred Mithqal of gold, and

said, "If I had not heard the Prophet saying, 'The neighbor has more right to be

taken care of by his neighbor (than anyone else),' then I would not have sold it to

you."
Translation of Sahih Bukhari, Book 87:
Interpretation of Dreams
Volume 9, Book 87, Number 111:
Narrated 'Aisha:

The commencement of the Divine Inspiration to Allah's Apostle was in the form of

good righteous (true) dreams in his sleep. He never had a dream but that it came

true like bright day light. He used to go in seclusion (the cave of) Hira where he

used to worship(Allah Alone) continuously for many (days) nights. He used to take

with him the journey food for that (stay) and then come back to (his wife) Khadija

to take his food like-wise again for another period to stay, till suddenly the Truth

descended upon him while he was in the cave of Hira. The angel came to him in it

and asked him to read. The Prophet replied, "I do not know how to read." (The

Prophet added), "The angel caught me (forcefully) and pressed me so hard that I

could not bear it anymore. He then released me and again asked me to read, and I

replied, "I do not know how to read," whereupon he caught me again and pressed

me a second time till I could not bear it anymore. He then released me and asked

me again to read, but again I replied, "I do not know how to read (or, what shall I

read?)." Thereupon he caught me for the third time and pressed me and then

released me and said, "Read: In the Name of your Lord, Who has created (all that

exists). Has created man from a clot. Read and Your Lord is Most Generous...up

to..... ..that which he knew not." (96.15)

Then Allah's Apostle returned with the Inspiration, his neck muscles twitching with

terror till he entered upon Khadija and said, "Cover me! Cover me!" They covered

him till his fear was over and then he said, "O Khadija, what is wrong with me?"

Then he told her everything that had happened and said, 'I fear that something may

happen to me." Khadija said, 'Never! But have the glad tidings, for by Allah, Allah

will never disgrace you as you keep good reactions with your Kith and kin, speak

the truth, help the poor and the destitute, serve your guest generously and assist the

deserving, calamity-afflicted ones." Khadija then accompanied him to (her cousin)

Waraqa bin Naufal bin Asad bin 'Abdul 'Uzza bin Qusai. Waraqa was the son of

her paternal uncle, i.e., her father's brother, who during the Pre-Islamic Period

became a Christian and used to write the Arabic writing and used to write of the

Gospels in Arabic as much as Allah wished him to write. He was an old man and

had lost his eyesight. Khadija said to him, "O my cousin! Listen to the story of your

nephew." Waraqa asked, "O my nephew! What have you seen?" The Prophet

described whatever he had seen.

Waraqa said, "This is the same Namus (i.e., Gabriel, the Angel who keeps the

secrets) whom Allah had sent to Moses. I wish I were young and could live up to

the time when your people would turn you out." Allah's Apostle asked, "Will they

turn me out?" Waraqa replied in the affirmative and said: "Never did a man come

with something similar to what you have brought but was treated with hostility. If I

should remain alive till the day when you will be turned out then I would support

you strongly." But after a few days Waraqa died and the Divine Inspiration was

also paused for a while and the Prophet became so sad as we have heard that he

intended several times to throw himself from the tops of high mountains and every

time he went up the top of a mountain in order to throw himself down, Gabriel

would appear before him and say, "O Muhammad! You are indeed Allah's

Apostle in truth" whereupon his heart would become quiet and he would calm

down and would return home. And whenever the period of the coming of the

inspiration used to become long, he would do as before, but when he used to

reach the top of a mountain, Gabriel would appear before him and say to him what

he had said before. (Ibn 'Abbas said regarding the meaning of: 'He it is that

Cleaves the daybreak (from the darkness)' (6.96) that Al-Asbah. means the light

of the sun during the day and the light of the moon at night).

started looking for lice in his head. Then Allah's Apostle slept and afterwards woke

up smiling. Um Haram asked, "What makes you smile, O Allah's Apostle?" He

said, "Some of my followers were presented before me in my dream as fighters in

Allah's Cause, sailing in the middle of the seas like kings on the thrones or like

kings sitting on their thrones." (The narrator Ishaq is not sure as to which

expression was correct). Um Haram added, 'I said, "O Allah's Apostle! Invoke

Allah, to make me one of them;" So Allah's Apostle invoked Allah for her and then

laid his head down (and slept). Then he woke up smiling (again). (Um Haram

added): I said, "What makes you smile, O Allah's Apostle?" He said, "Some

people of my followers were presented before me (in a dream) as fighters in

Allah's Cause." He said the same as he had said before. I said, "O Allah's Apostle!

Invoke Allah to make me from them." He said, "You are among the first ones."

us in our house. Then he suffered from a disease which proved fatal. When he died

and was given a bath and was shrouded in his clothes. Allah's Apostle came, I

said, (addressing the dead body), 'O Aba As-Sa'ib! May Allah be Merciful to

you! I testify that Allah has honored you.' Allah's Apostle said, 'How do you know

that Allah has honored him?" I replied, 'Let my father be sacrificed for you, O

Allah's Apostle! On whom else shall Allah bestow. His honor?' Allah's Apostle

said, 'As for him, by Allah, death has come to him. By Allah, I wish him all good

(from Allah). By Allah, in spite of the fact that I am Allah's Apostle, I do not know

what Allah will do to me.", Um Al-'Ala added, "By Allah, I will never attest the

replied, "Subhan Allah! They ought not to have said things of which they have no

knowledge, but I saw (in a dream) that a post was fixed in a green garden. At the

top of the post there was a handhold and below it there was a servant. I was

asked to climb (the post). So I climbed it till I got hold of the handhold." Then I

treasures of the earth were brought to me and were put in my hand." Muhammad

believer will hardly fail to come true, and a dream of a believer is one of forty-six

parts of prophetism, and whatever belongs to prothetism can never be false."

Muhammad bin Sirin said, "But I say this." He said, "It used to be said, 'There are

three types of dreams: The reflection of one's thoughts and experiences one has

during wakefulness, what is suggested by Satan to frighten the dreamer, or glad

tidings from Allah. So, if someone has a dream which he dislikes, he should not tell

it to others, but get up and offer a prayer." He added, "He (Abu Huraira) hated to

see a Ghul (i.e., iron collar around his neck in a dream) and people liked to see

fetters (on their feet in a dream). The fetters on the feet symbolizes one's constant

and firm adherence to religion." And Abu 'Abdullah said, "Ghuls (iron collars) are

used only for necks."

'How do you know that?' I replied, 'I do not know, by Allah.' He said, 'As for him,

death has come to him and I wish him all good from Allah. By Allah, though I am

Allah's Apostle, I neither know what will happen to me, nor to you.'" Um Al-'Ala

said, "By Allah, I will never attest the righteousness of anybody after that." She

added, "Later I saw in a dream, a flowing spring for 'Uthman. So I went to Allah's

Apostle and mentioned that to him. He said, 'That is (the symbol of) his good

deeds (the reward for) which is going on for him.' "

Volume 9, Book 87, Number 146:

Allah's Apostle said, "(I saw in a dream that) while I was standing at a well and

drawing water therefrom, suddenly Abu Bakr and 'Umar came to me. Abu Bakr

took the bucket and drew one or two buckets (full of water), but there was

weakness in his pulling, but Allah forgave him. Then Ibn Al-Khattab took the

bucket from Abu Bakr's hand and the bucket turned into a very large one in his

hand. I have never seen any strong man among the people doing such a hard job

as 'Umar did, till (the people drank to their satisfaction) and water their camels to

their fill and they sat near the water."

said, "I saw (in a dream) that the people had gathered. Then Abu Bakr stood up

and pulled out one or two buckets full of water (from a well) and there was

weakness in his pulling -- may Allah forgive him. Then Ibn Al-Khattab stood up,

and the bucket turned into a very large one and I have never seen any strong man

among the people doing such a hard job. He pulled out so much water that the

people (drank to their satisfaction) and watered their camels to their fill, (and then

after quenching their thirst) they sat beside the water."

which there was a bucket. I pulled out from it as many buckets of water as Allah

wished, and then Ibn Abi Quhafa (Abu Bakr) took the bucket from me and pulled

out one or two full buckets, and there was weakness in his pull--may Allah forgive

him. Then the bucket turned into a very large one and 'Umar bin Al-Khattab took

it. I have never seen any strong man among the people, drawing water with such

strength as 'Umar did, till the people (drank to their satisfaction and) watered their

camels to their fill; whereupon the camels sat beside the water."

Volume 9, Book 87, Number 149:

Allah's Apostle said, "While I was sleeping, I saw myself standing over a tank

(well) giving water to the people to drink. Then Abu Bakr came to me and took

the bucket from me in order to relieve me and he pulled out one or two full

buckets, and there was weakness in his pulling --may Allah forgive him. Then Ibn

Al-Khattab took it from him and went on drawing water till the people left (after

being satisfied) while the tank was over flowing with water."

Volume 9, Book 87, Number 150:
Narrated Abu Huraira:

We were sitting with Allah's Apostle, he said, "While I was sleeping, I saw myself

in Paradise. Suddenly I saw a woman performing ablution beside a palace. I

asked, "For whom is this palace?" They (the angels) replied, "It is for 'Umar bin

Al-Khattab." Then I remembered 'Umar's ghira and went back hurriedly." On

hearing that, 'Umar started weeping and said, " Let my father and mother be

sacrificed for you. O Allah's Apostle! How dare I think of my Ghira being

offended by you?
Volume 9, Book 87, Number 151:

Nothing stopped me from entering it except your Ghira." 'Umar said, "How dare I

think of my Ghira being offended by you, O Allah's Apostle?"

the Ka'ba. Behold, there I saw a whitish-red lank-haired man (holding himself)

between two men with water dropping from his hair. I asked, 'Who is this?' The

people replied, 'He is the son of Mary.' Then I turned my face to see another man

with red complexion, big body, curly hair, and blind in the right eye which looked

like a protruding out grape. I asked, 'Who is he?' They replied, 'He is Ad-Dajjal.'

Ibn Qatan resembles him more than anybody else among the people and Ibn

Qatan was a man from Bani Al-Mustaliq from Khuza'a."

body). Then I gave the remaining of it to 'Umar." They asked, "O Allah's Apostle!

What have you interpreted (about the dream)? He said, "(It is Religious)

knowledge." (See Hadith No. 134)
Volume 9, Book 87, Number 155:
Narrated Ibn 'Umar:

Men from the companions of Allah's Apostle used to see dreams during the lifetime

of Allah's Apostle and they used to narrate those dreams to Allah's Apostle.

Allah's Apostle would interpret them as Allah wished. I was a young man and used

to stay in the mosque before my wedlock. I said to myself, "If there were any good

in myself, I too would see what these people see." So when I went to bed one

night, I said, "O Allah! If you see any good in me, show me a good dream." So

while I was in that state, there came to me (in a dream) two angels. In the hand of

each of them, there was a mace of iron, and both of them were taking me to Hell,

and I was between them, invoking Allah, "O Allah! I seek refuge with You from

Hell." Then I saw myself being confronted by another angel holding a mace of iron

in his hand. He said to me, "Do not be afraid, you will be an excellent man if you

only pray more often." So they took me till they stopped me at the edge of Hell,

and behold, it was built inside like a well and it had side posts like those of a well,

and beside each post there was an angel carrying an iron mace. I saw therein many

people hanging upside down with iron chains, and I recognized therein some men

from the Quraish. Then (the angels) took me to the right side. I narrated this dream

to (my sister) Hafsa and she told it to Allah's Apostle. Allah's Apostle said, "No

doubt, 'Abdullah is a good man." (Nafi' said, "Since then 'Abdullah bin 'Umar used

to pray much.)
Volume 9, Book 87, Number 156:
Narrated Ibn 'Umar:

I was a young unmarried man during the lifetime of the Prophet. I used to sleep in

the mosque. Anyone who had a dream, would narrate it to the Prophet. I said, "O

Allah! If there is any good for me with You, then show me a dream so that Allah's

Apostle may interpret it for me." So I slept and saw (in a dream) two angels came

to me and took me along with them, and they met another angel who said to me,

"Don't be afraid, you are a good man." They took me towards the Fire, and

behold, it was built inside like a well, and therein I saw people some of whom I

recognized, and then the angels took me to the right side. In the morning, I

mentioned that dream to Hafsa. Hafsa told me that she had mentioned it to the

Prophet and he said, "'Abdullah is a righteous man if he only prays more at night."

(Az-Zuhri said, "After that, 'Abdullah used to pray more at night.")

Narrated 'Abdullah bin 'Umar:

I heard Allah's Apostle saying, "While I was sleeping, I saw that a cup full of milk

Allah's Apostle?" The Prophet said. "(It is Religious) knowledge."

Volume 9, Book 87, Number 158:
Narrated 'Abdullah bin 'Abbas:

Allah's Apostle said, "While I was sleeping, two golden bangles were put in my

two hands, so I got scared (frightened) and disliked it, but I was given permission

to blow them off, and they flew away. I interpret it as a symbol of two liars who

will appear." 'Ubaidullah said, "One of them was Al-'Ansi who was killed by Fairuz

at Yemen and the other was Musailama (at Najd) .
Volume 9, Book 87, Number 159:
Narrated Abu Musa:

The Prophet said, "I saw in a dream that I was migrating from Mecca to a land

where there were date palm trees. I thought that it might be the land of

Al-Yamama or Hajar, but behold, it turned out to be Yathrib (i.e. Medina). And I

saw cows (being slaughtered) there, but the reward given by Allah is better (than

worldly benefits). Behold, those cows proved to symbolize the believers (who

were killed) on the Day (of the battle) of Uhud, and the good (which I saw in the

dream) was the good and the reward and the truth which Allah bestowed upon us

after the Badr battle. (or the Battle of Uhud) and that was the victory bestowed by

Allah in the Battle of Khaibar and the conquest of Mecca) .

Volume 9, Book 87, Number 160:

Allah's Apostle said, "We (Muslims) are the last (to come) but (will be) the

foremost (on the Day of Resurrection)." Allah's Apostle further said, ''While

sleeping, I was given the treasures of the world and two golden bangles were put in

my hands, but I felt much annoyed, and those two bangles distressed me very

much, but I was inspired that I should blow them off, so I blew them and they flew

away. Then I interpreted that those two bangles were the liars between whom I

was (i.e., the one of San'a' and the one of Yamama)."

Narrated 'Abdullah:

The Prophet said, "I saw (in a dream) a black woman with unkempt hair going out

Narrated 'Abdullah bin 'Umar:

concerning the dream of the Prophet in Medina: The Prophet said, "I saw (in a

middle, and behold, that symbolized the casualties the believers suffered on the

than it had ever been before, and behold, that symbolized the Conquest (of

Mecca) which Allah brought about and the gathering of the believers. "

Volume 9, Book 87, Number 165:
Narrated Ibn Abbas:

The Prophet said, "Whoever claims to have seen a dream which he did not see,

will be ordered to make a knot between two barley grains which he will not be

able to do; and if somebody listens to the talk of some people who do not like him

(to listen) or they run away from him, then molten lead will be poured into his ears

on the Day of Resurrection; and whoever makes a picture, will be punished on the

Day of Resurrection and will be ordered to put a soul in that picture, which he will

not be able to do."

Narrated Abu Salama:

I used to see a dream which would make me sick till I heard Abu Qatada saying,

"I too, used to see a dream which would make me sick till I heard the Prophet

saying, "A good dream is from Allah, so if anyone of you saw a dream which he

liked, he should not tell it to anybody except to the one whom he loves, and if he

saw a dream which he disliked, then he should seek refuge with Allah from its evil

and from the evil of Satan, and spit three times (on his left) and should not tell it to

anybody, for it will not harm him. "
Volume 9, Book 87, Number 169:
Narrated Abu Sa'id Al-Khudri:

I heard Allah's Apostle saying, "If anyone of you saw a dream which he liked, then

that was from Allah, and he should thank Allah for it and tell it to others; but if he

saw something else, i.e, a dream which he did not like, then that is from Satan and

he should seek refuge with Allah from it and should not tell it to anybody for it will

not harm him."
Volume 9, Book 87, Number 170:
Narrated Ibn 'Abbas:

A man came to Allah's Apostle and said, "I saw in a dream, a cloud having shade.

Butter and honey were dropping from it and I saw the people gathering it in their

hands, some gathering much and some a little. And behold, there was a rope

extending from the earth to the sky, and I saw that you (the Prophet) held it and

went up, and then another man held it and went up and (after that) another (third)

held it and went up, and then after another (fourth) man held it, but it broke and

then got connected again." Abu Bakr said, "O Allah's Apostle! Let my father be

sacrificed for you! Allow me to interpret this dream." The Prophet said to him,

"Interpret it." Abu Bakr said, "The cloud with shade symbolizes Islam, and the

butter and honey dropping from it, symbolizes the Quran, its sweetness dropping

and some people learning much of the Qur'an and some a little. The rope which is

extended from the sky to the earth is the Truth which you (the Prophet) are

following. You follow it and Allah will raise you high with it, and then another man

will follow it and will rise up with it and another person will follow it and then

another man will follow it but it will break and then it will be connected for him and

he will rise up with it. O Allah's Apostle! Let my father be sacrificed for you! Am I

right or wrong?" The Prophet replied, "You are right in some of it and wrong in

some." Abu Bakr said, "O Allah's Prophet! By Allah, you must tell me in what I

was wrong." The Prophet said, "Do not swear."
Volume 9, Book 87, Number 171:
Narrated Samura bin Jundub:

Allah's Apostle very often used to ask his companions, "Did anyone of you see a

dream?" So dreams would be narrated to him by those whom Allah wished to tell.

One morning the Prophet said, "Last night two persons came to me (in a dream)

and woke me up and said to me, 'Proceed!' I set out with them and we came

across a man Lying down, and behold, another man was standing over his head,

holding a big rock. Behold, he was throwing the rock at the man's head, injuring it.

The rock rolled away and the thrower followed it and took it back. By the time he

reached the man, his head returned to the normal state. The thrower then did the

same as he had done before. I said to my two companions, 'Subhan Allah! Who

are these two persons?' They said, 'Proceed!' So we proceeded and came to a

man Lying flat on his back and another man standing over his head with an iron

hook, and behold, he would put the hook in one side of the man's mouth and tear

off that side of his face to the back (of the neck) and similarly tear his nose from

front to back and his eye from front to back. Then he turned to the other side of

the man's face and did just as he had done with the other side. He hardly

completed this side when the other side returned to its normal state. Then he

returned to it to repeat what he had done before. I said to my two companions,

'Subhan Allah! Who are these two persons?' They said to me, 'Proceed!' So we

proceeded and came across something like a Tannur (a kind of baking oven, a pit

usually clay-lined for baking bread)." I think the Prophet said, "In that oven t here

was much noise and voices." The Prophet added, "We looked into it and found

naked men and women, and behold, a flame of fire was reaching to them from

underneath, and when it reached them, they cried loudly. I asked them, 'Who are

these?' They said to me, 'Proceed!' And so we proceeded and came across a

river." I think he said, ".... red like blood." The Prophet added, "And behold, in the

river there was a man swimming, and on the bank there was a man who had

collected many stones. Behold. while the other man was swimming, he went near

him. The former opened his mouth and the latter (on the bank) threw a stone into

his mouth whereupon he went swimming again. He returned and every time the

performance was repeated, I asked my two companions, 'Who are these (two)

persons?' They replied, 'Proceed! Proceed!' And we proceeded till we came to a

man with a repulsive appearance, the most repulsive appearance, you ever saw a

man having! Beside him there was a fire and he was kindling it and running around

it. I asked my companions, 'Who is this (man)?' They said to me, 'Proceed!

Proceed!' So we proceeded till we reached a garden of deep green dense

vegetation, having all sorts of spring colors. In the midst of the garden there was a

very tall man and I could hardly see his head because of his great height, and

around him there were children in such a large number as I have never seen. I said

to my companions, 'Who is this?' They replied, 'Proceed! Proceed!' So we

proceeded till we came to a majestic huge garden, greater and better than I have

ever seen! My two companions said to me, 'Go up and I went up' The Prophet

added, "So we ascended till we reached a city built of gold and silver bricks and

we went to its gate and asked (the gatekeeper) to open the gate, and it was

opened and we entered the city and found in it, men with one side of their bodies

as handsome as the handsomest person you have ever seen, and the other side as

ugly as the ugliest person you have ever seen. My two companions ordered those

men to throw themselves into the river. Behold, there was a river flowing across

(the city), and its water was like milk in whiteness. Those men went and threw

themselves in it and then returned to us after the ugliness (of their bodies) had

disappeared and they became in the best shape." The Prophet further added, "My

two companions (angels) said to me, 'This place is the Eden Paradise, and that is

your place.' I raised up my sight, and behold, there I saw a palace like a white

cloud! My two companions said to me, 'That (palace) is your place.' I said to

them, 'May Allah bless you both! Let me enter it.' They replied, 'As for now, you

will not enter it, but you shall enter it (one day) I said to them, 'I have seen many

wonders tonight. What does all that mean which I have seen?' They replied, 'We

will inform you: As for the first man you came upon whose head was being injured

with the rock, he is the symbol of the one who studies the Quran and then neither

recites it nor acts on its orders, and sleeps, neglecting the enjoined prayers. As for

the man you came upon whose sides of mouth, nostrils and eyes were torn off from

front to back, he is the symbol of the man who goes out of his house in the morning

and tells so many lies that it spreads all over the world. And those naked men and

women whom you saw in a construction resembling an oven, they are the

adulterers and the adulteresses;, and the man whom you saw swimming in the river

and given a stone to swallow, is the eater of usury (Riba) and the bad looking man

whom you saw near the fire kindling it and going round it, is Malik, the gatekeeper

of Hell and the tall man whom you saw in the garden, is Abraham and the children

around him are those children who die with Al-Fitra (the Islamic Faith)." The

narrator added: Some Muslims asked the Prophet, "O Allah's Apostle! What

about the children of pagans?" The Prophet replied, "And also the children of

pagans." The Prophet added, "My two companions added, 'The men you saw half

handsome and half ugly were those persons who had mixed an act that was good

with another that was bad, but Allah forgave them.'"

never become thirsty after that. There will come to me some people whom I know

and they know me, and then a barrier will be set up between me and them." Abu

Sa'id Al-Khudri added that the Prophet further said: "I will say those people are

from me. It will be said, 'You do not know what changes and new things they did

after you.' Then I will say, 'Far removed (from mercy), far removed (from mercy),

those who changed (the religion) after me! "

their rights to them (to the rulers) and ask your right from Allah."

him the Pledge of allegiance for Islam, and among the conditions on which he took

the Pledge from us, was that we were to listen and obey (the orders) both at the

time when we were active and at the time when we were tired, and at our difficult

time and at our ease and to be obedient to the ruler and give him his right even if he

did not give us our right, and not to fight against him unless we noticed him having

I said to 'Amr, "O Abu Muhammad! Did you hear Jabir bin 'Abdullah saying, 'A

man carrying arrows passed through the mosque and Allah's Apostle said to him,

'Hold the arrows by their heads! "'Amr replied, "Yes."

Volume 9, Book 88, Number 195:
Narrated Jabir:

A man passed through the mosque and he was carrying arrows, the heads of which

were exposed (protruding). The man was ordered (by the Prophet) to hold the

iron heads so that it might not scratch (injure) any Muslim.

Narrated Abu Musa:

The Prophet said, "If anyone of you passed through our mosque or through our

market while carrying arrows, he should hold the iron heads," or said, "..... he

should hold (their heads) firmly with his hand lest he should injure one of the

Muslims with it."

Narrated Abu Bakra:

Allah's Apostle addressed the people saying, "Don't you know what is the day

today?" They replied, "Allah and His Apostle know better." We thought that he

might give that day another name. The Prophet said, "Isn't it the day of An-Nahr?"

We replied, "Yes. O Allah's Apostle." He then said, "What town is this? Isn't it the

forbidden (Sacred) Town (Mecca)?" We replied, "Yes, O Allah's Apostle." He

then said, "Your blood, your properties, your honors and your skins (i.e., bodies)

are as sacred to one another like the sanctity of this day of yours in this month of

yours in this town of yours. (Listen) Haven't I conveyed Allah's message to you?"

We replied, "Yes" He said, "O Allah! Be witness (for it). So it is incumbent upon

those who are present to convey it (this message of mine) to those who are absent

because the informed one might comprehend what I have said better than the

present audience who will convey it to him.)" The narrator added: In fact, it was

like that. The Prophet added, "Beware! Do not renegade as disbelievers after me

by striking (cutting) the necks of one another."
Volume 9, Book 88, Number 200:

Narrated Abu Huraira:

Allah's Apostle said, "There will be afflictions (in the near future) during which a

sitting person will be better than a standing one, and the standing one will be better

than the walking one, and the walking one will be better than the running one, and

whoever will expose himself to these afflictions, they will destroy him. So whoever

can find a place of protection or refuge from them, should take shelter in it."

sitting person will be better than a standing one, and the standing one will be better

than a walking one, and the walking one will be better than a running one, and

whoever will expose himself to these afflictions, they will destroy him. So whoever

can find a place of protection or refuge from them, should take shelter in it."

Volume 9, Book 88, Number 204:
Narrated Al-Hasan:

(Al-Ahnaf said:) I went out carrying my arms during the nights of the affliction (i.e.

the war between 'Ali and 'Aisha) and Abu Bakra met me and asked, "Where are

you going?" I replied, "I intend to help the cousin of Allah's Apostle (i.e.,'Ali)." Abu

Bakra said, "Allah's Apostle said, 'If two Muslims take out their swords to fight

each other, then both of them will be from amongst the people of the Hell-Fire.' It

was said to the Prophet, 'It is alright for the killer but what about the killed one?'

He replied, 'The killed one had the intention to kill his opponent.'" (See Hadith No.

Abu Bakra said: The Prophet said (as above, 204).
Volume 9, Book 88, Number 206:
Narrated Hudhaifa bin Al-Yaman:

The people used to ask Allah's Apostle about the good but I used to ask him

about the evil lest I should be overtaken by them. So I said, "O Allah's Apostle!

We were living in ignorance and in an (extremely) worst atmosphere, then Allah

brought to us this good (i.e., Islam); will there be any evil after this good?" He said,

"Yes." I said, 'Will there be any good after that evil?" He replied, "Yes, but it will

be tainted (not pure.)'' I asked, "What will be its taint?" He replied, "(There will be)

some people who will guide others not according to my tradition? You will

approve of some of their deeds and disapprove of some others." I asked, "Will

there be any evil after that good?" He replied, "Yes, (there will be) some people

calling at the gates of the (Hell) Fire, and whoever will respond to their call, will be

thrown by them into the (Hell) Fire." I said, "O Allah s Apostle! Will you describe

them to us?" He said, "They will be from our own people and will speak our

language." I said, "What do you order me to do if such a state should take place in

my life?" He said, "Stick to the group of Muslims and their Imam (ruler)." I said, "If

there is neither a group of Muslims nor an Imam (ruler)?" He said, "Then turn away

from all those sects even if you were to bite (eat) the roots of a tree till death

overtakes you while you are in that state."
Volume 9, Book 88, Number 207:
Narrated Abu Al-Aswad:

An army unit was being recruited from the people of Medina and my name was

written among them. Then I met 'Ikrima, and when I informed him about it, he

discouraged me very strongly and said, "Ibn 'Abbas told me that there were some

Muslims who were with the pagans to increase their number against Allah's

Apostle (and the Muslim army) so arrows (from the Muslim army) would hit one of

them and kill him or a Muslim would strike him (with his sword) and kill him. So

Allah revealed:--

'Verily! As for those whom the angels take (in death) while they are wronging

themselves (by staying among the disbelievers).' (4.97)

Volume 9, Book 88, Number 208:
Narrated Hudhaifa:

Allah's Apostle related to us, two prophetic narrations one of which I have seen

fulfilled and I am waiting for the fulfillment of the other. The Prophet told us that the

virtue of honesty descended in the roots of men's hearts (from Allah) and then they

learned it from the Qur'an and then they learned it from the Sunna (the Prophet's

traditions). The Prophet further told us how that honesty will be taken away: He

said: "Man will go to sleep during which honesty will be taken away from his heart

and only its trace will remain in his heart like the trace of a dark spot; then man will

go to sleep, during which honesty will decrease further still, so that its trace will

resemble the trace of blister as when an ember is dropped on one's foot which

would make it swell, and one would see it swollen but there would be nothing

inside. People would be carrying out their trade but hardly will there be a

trustworthy person. It will be said, 'in such-and-such tribe there is an honest man,'

and later it will be said about some man, 'What a wise, polite and strong man he

is!' Though he will not have faith equal even to a mustard seed in his heart." No

doubt, there came upon me a time when I did not mind dealing (bargaining) with

anyone of you, for if he was a Muslim his Islam would compel him to pay me what

is due to me, and if he was a Christian, the Muslim official would compel him to

pay me what is due to me, but today I do not deal except with such-and-such

person.
Volume 9, Book 88, Number 209:
Narrated Salama bin Al-Akwa:

That he visited Al-Hajjaj (bin Yusuf). Al-Hajjaj said, "O son of Al-Akwa! You

have turned on your heels (i.e., deserted Islam) by staying (in the desert) with the

bedouins." Salama replied, "No, but Allah's Apostle allowed me to stay with the

bedouin in the desert." Narrated Yazid bin Abi Ubaid: When 'Uthman bin Affan

was killed (martyred), Salama bin Al-Akwa' went out to a place called

Ar-Rabadha and married there and begot children, and he stayed there till a few

nights before his death when he came to Medina.
Volume 9, Book 88, Number 210:
Narrated Abu Sa'id Al-Khudri:

Allah's Apostle said, "There will come a time when the best property of a Muslim

will be sheep which he will take to the tops of mountains and the places of rainfall

so as to flee with his religion from the afflictions.

Volume 9, Book 88, Number 211:
Narrated Anas:

The people started asking the Prophet too many questions importunately. So one

day he ascended the pulpit and said, "You will not ask me any question but I will

explain it to you." I looked right and left, and behold, every man was covering his

head with his garment and weeping. Then got up a man who, whenever quarreling

with somebody, used to be accused of not being the son of his father. He said, "O

Allah's Apostle! Who is my father?" The Prophet replied, "Your father is

Hudhaifa." Then 'Umar got up and said, "We accept Allah as our Lord, Islam as

our religion and Muhammad as our Apostle and we seek refuge with Allah from

the evil of afflictions." The Prophet said, " I have never seen the good and bad like

on this day. No doubt, Paradise and Hell was displayed in front of me till I saw

them in front of that wall," Qatada said: This Hadith used to be mentioned as an

explanation of this Verse:-- 'O you who believe! Ask not questions about things

which, if made plain to you, may cause you trouble.' (5.101)

Volume 9, Book 88, Number 212:
Narrated Salim's father:

The Prophet stood up beside the pulpit (and pointed with his finger towards the

East) and said, "Afflictions are there! Afflictions are there, from where the side of

the head of Satan comes out," or said, "..the side of the sun.."

Volume 9, Book 88, Number 213:
Narrated Ibn 'Umar:

I heard Allah's Apostle while he was facing the East, saying, "Verily! Afflictions are

there, from where the side of the head of Satan comes out."

Volume 9, Book 88, Number 214:
Narrated Ibn 'Umar:

The Prophet said, "O Allah! Bestow Your blessings on our Sham! O Allah!

Bestow Your blessings on our Yemen." The People said, "And also on our Najd."

He said, "O Allah! Bestow Your blessings on our Sham (north)! O Allah! Bestow

Your blessings on our Yemen." The people said, "O Allah's Apostle! And also on

our Najd." I think the third time the Prophet said, "There (in Najd) is the place of

earthquakes and afflictions and from there comes out the side of the head of

Satan."
Volume 9, Book 88, Number 215:
Narrated Sa'id bin Jubair:

'Abdullah bin 'Umar came to us and we hoped that he would narrate to us a good

Hadith. But before we asked him, a man got up and said to him, "O Abu

'Abdur-Rahman! Narrate to us about the battles during the time of the afflictions,

as Allah says:--

'And fight them until there is no more afflictions (i.e. no more worshipping of others

besides Allah).'" (2.193) Ibn 'Umar said (to the man), "Do you know what is

meant by afflictions? Let your mother bereave you! Muhammad used to fight

against the pagans, for a Muslim was put to trial in his religion (The pagans will

either kill him or chain him as a captive). His fighting was not like your fighting

which is carried on for the sake of ruling."
Volume 9, Book 88, Number 216:
Narrated Shaqiq:

I heard Hudhaifa saying, "While we were sitting with 'Umar, he said, 'Who among

you remembers the statement of the Prophet about the afflictions?' Hudhaifa said,

"The affliction of a man in his family, his property, his children and his neighbors are

expiated by his prayers, Zakat (and alms) and enjoining good and forbidding evil."

'Umar said, "I do not ask you about these afflictions, but about those afflictions

which will move like the waves of the sea." Hudhaifa said, "Don't worry about it, O

chief of the believers, for there is a closed door between you and them." 'Umar

said, "Will that door be broken or opened?" I said, "No. it will be broken." 'Umar

said, "Then it will never be closed," I said, "Yes." We asked Hudhaifa, "Did 'Umar

know what that door meant?" He replied, "Yes, as I know that there will be night

before tomorrow morning, that is because I narrated to him a true narration free

from errors." We dared not ask Hudhaifa as to whom the door represented so we

ordered Masruq to ask him what does the door stand for? He replied, "'Umar."

Volume 9, Book 88, Number 217:
Narrated Abu Musa Al-Ash'ari:

The Prophet went out to one of the gardens of Medina for some business and I

went out to follow him. When he entered the garden, I sat at its gate and said to

myself, "To day I will be the gatekeeper of the Prophet though he has not ordered

me." The Prophet went and finished his need and went to sit on the constructed

edge of the well and uncovered his legs and hung them in the well. In the meantime

Abu Bakr came and asked permission to enter. I said (to him), "Wait till I get you

permission." Abu Bakr waited outside and I went to the Prophet and said, "O

Allah's Prophet! Abu Bakr asks your permission to enter." He said, "Admit him,

and give him the glad tidings of entering Paradise." So Abu Bakr entered and sat

on the right side of the Prophet and uncovered his legs and hung them in the well.

Then 'Umar came and I said (to him), "Wait till I get you permission." The Prophet

said, "Admit him and give him the glad tidings of entering Paradise." So Umar

entered and sat on the left side of the Prophet and uncovered his legs and hung

them in the well so that one side of the well became fully occupied and there

remained no place for any-one to sit. Then 'Uthman came and I said (to him),

"Wait till I get permission for you." The Prophet said, "Admit him and give him the

glad tidings of entering Paradise with a calamity which will befall him." When he

entered, he could not find any place to sit with them so he went to the other edge

of the well opposite them and uncovered his legs and hung them in the well. I

wished that a brother of mine would come, so I invoked Allah for his coming. (Ibn

Al-Musaiyab said, "I interpreted that (narration) as indicating their graves. The first

three are together and the grave of 'Uthman is separate from theirs.")

Volume 9, Book 88, Number 218:
Narrated Abu Wail:

Someone said to Usama, "Will you not talk to this (Uthman)?" Usama said, "I

talked to him (secretly) without being the first man to open an evil door. I will never

tell a ruler who rules over two men or more that he is good after I heard Allah's

Apostle saying, 'A man will be brought and put in Hell (Fire) and he will

circumambulate (go around and round) in Hell (Fire) like a donkey of a (flour)

grinding mill, and all the people of Hell (Fire) will gather around him and will say to

him, O so-and-so! Didn't you use to order others for good and forbid them from

evil?' That man will say, 'I used to order others to do good but I myself never used

to do it, and I used to forbid others from evil while I myself used to do evil.' "

Volume 9, Book 88, Number 219:
Narrated Abu Bakra:

During the battle of Al-Jamal, Allah benefited me with a Word (I heard from the

Prophet). When the Prophet heard the news that the people of the Persia had

made the daughter of Khosrau their Queen (ruler), he said, "Never will succeed

such a nation as makes a woman their ruler."
Volume 9, Book 88, Number 220:
Narrated Abu Maryam Abdullah bin Ziyad Al-Aasadi:

When Talha, AzZubair and 'Aisha moved to Basra, 'Ali sent 'Ammar bin Yasir and

Hasan bin 'Ali who came to us at Kufa and ascended the pulpit. Al-Hasan bin 'Ali

was at the top of the pulpit and 'Ammar was below Al-Hasan. We all gathered

before him. I heard 'Ammar saying, "'Aisha has moved to Al-Busra. By Allah! She

is the wife of your Prophet in this world and in the Hereafter. But Allah has put you

to test whether you obey Him (Allah) or her ('Aisha)."

Volume 9, Book 88, Number 221:
Narrated Abu Wail:

'Ammar stood on the pulpit at Kufa and mentioned 'Aisha and her coming (to

Busra) and said, "She is the wife of your Prophet in this world and in the Hereafter,

but you people are being put to test in this issue."

Volume 9, Book 88, Number 222:
Narrated Abu Wail:

Abu Musa and Abii Mas'ud went to 'Ammar when 'Ali had sent him to Kufa to

exhort them to fight (on 'Ali's side). They said to him, "Since you have become a

Muslim, we have never seen you doing a deed more criticizable to us than your

haste in this matter." 'Ammar said, "Since you (both) became Muslims, I have

never seen you doing a deed more criticizable to me than your keeping away from

this matter." Then Abu Mas'ud provided 'Ammar and Abu Musa with two-piece

outfits to wear, and one of them went to the mosque (of Kufa).

Volume 9, Book 88, Number 223:
Narrated Shaqiq bin Salama:

I was sitting with Abu Mas'ud and Abu Musa and 'Ammar. Abu Mas'ud said (to

'Ammar), "There is none of your companions but, if I wish, I could find fault with

him except with you. Since you joined the company of the Prophet I have never

seen anything done by you more criticizable by me than your haste in this issue."

'Ammar said, O Abu Mas'ud ! I have never seen anything done by you or by this

companion of yours (i.e., Abu Musa) more criticizable by me than your keeping

away from this issue since the time you both joined the company of the Prophet."

Then Abu Mas'ud who was a rich man, said (to his servant), "O boy! Bring two

suits." Then he gave one to Abu Musa and the other to 'Ammar and said (to them),

"Put on these suits before going for the Friday prayer. "

Volume 9, Book 88, Number 224:
Narrated Ibn 'Umar:

Allah's Apostle said, "If Allah sends punishment upon a nation then it befalls upon

the whole population indiscriminately and then they will be resurrected (and

judged) according to their deeds. "
Volume 9, Book 88, Number 225:
Narrated Al-Hasan Al-Basri:

When Al-Hasan bin 'Ali moved with army units against Muawiya, 'Amr bin AL-As

said to Muawiya, "I see an army that will not retreat unless and until the opposing

army retreats." Muawiya said, "(If the Muslims are killed) who will look after their

children?" 'Amr bin Al-As said: I (will look after them). On that, 'Abdullah bin

'Amir and 'Abdur-Rahman bin Samura said, "Let us meet Muawaiya and suggest

peace." Al-Hasan Al-Basri added: No doubt, I heard that Abu Bakra said, "Once

while the Prophet was addressing (the people), Al-Hasan (bin 'Ali) came and the

Prophet said, 'This son of mine is a chief, and Allah may make peace between two

groups of Muslims through him."
Volume 9, Book 88, Number 226:
Narrated Harmala:

(Usama's Maula) Usama (bin Zaid) sent me to 'Ali (at Kufa) and said, "'Ali will ask

you, 'What has prevented your companion from joining me?' You then should say

to him, 'If you ('Ali) were in the mouth of a lion, I would like to be with you, but in

this matter I won't take any part.' " Harmala added: "'Ali didn't give me anything

(when I conveyed the message to him) so I went to Hasan, Hussain and Ibn Ja'far

and they loaded my camels with much (wealth)."
Volume 9, Book 88, Number 227:
Narrated Nafi':

When the people of Medina dethroned Yazid bin Muawiya, Ibn 'Umar gathered

his special friends and children and said, "I heard the Prophet saying, 'A flag will be

fixed for every betrayer on the Day of Resurrection,' and we have given the oath of

allegiance to this person (Yazid) in accordance with the conditions enjoined by

Allah and His Apostle and I do not know of anything more faithless than fighting a

person who has been given the oath of allegiance in accordance with the conditions

enjoined by Allah and His Apostle , and if ever I learn that any person among you

has agreed to dethrone Yazid, by giving the oath of allegiance (to somebody else)

then there will be separation between him and me."

Volume 9, Book 88, Number 228:
Narrated Abu Al-Minhal:

When Ibn Ziyad and Marwan were in Sham and Ibn Az-Zubair took over the

authority in Mecca and Qurra' (the Kharijites) revolted in Basra, I went out with

my father to Abu Barza Al-Aslami till we entered upon him in his house while he

was sitting in the shade of a room built of cane. So we sat with him and my father

started talking to him saying, "O Abu Barza! Don't you see in what dilemma the

people has fallen?" The first thing heard him saying "I seek reward from Allah for

myself because of being angry and scornful at the Quraish tribe. O you Arabs! You

know very well that you were in misery and were few in number and misguided,

and that Allah has brought you out of all that with Islam and with Muhammad till

He brought you to this state (of prosperity and happiness) which you see now; and

it is this worldly wealth and pleasures which has caused mischief to appear among

you. The one who is in Sham (i.e., Marwan), by Allah, is not fighting except for the

sake of worldly gain: and those who are among you, by Allah, are not fighting

except for the sake of worldly gain; and that one who is in Mecca (i.e., Ibn

Az-Zubair) by Allah, is not fighting except for the sake of worldly gain."

Volume 9, Book 88, Number 229:
Narrated Abi Waih:

Hudhaifa bin Al-Yaman said, 'The hypocrites of today are worse than those of the

lifetime of the Prophet, because in those days they used to do evil deeds secretly

but today they do such deeds openly.'
Volume 9, Book 88, Number 230:
Narrated Abi Asha'sha:

Volume 9, Book 88, Number 232:
Narrated Abu Huraira:

Allah's Apostle said, "The Hour will not be established till the buttocks of the

women of the tribe of Daus move while going round Dhi-al-Khalasa."

Dhi-al-Khalasa was the idol of the Daus tribe which they used to worship in the

Pre Islamic Period of ignorance.
Volume 9, Book 88, Number 233:

Narrated Abu Huraira:

Allah's Apostle said, "The Hour will not be established (1) till two big groups fight

each other whereupon there will be a great number of casualties on both sides and

they will be following one and the same religious doctrine, (2) till about thirty

Dajjals (liars) appear, and each one of them will claim that he is Allah's Apostle,

(3) till the religious knowledge is taken away (by the death of Religious scholars)

(4) earthquakes will increase in number (5) time will pass quickly, (6) afflictions will

appear, (7) Al-Harj, (i.e., killing) will increase, (8) till wealth will be in abundance

---- so abundant that a wealthy person will worry lest nobody should accept his

Zakat, and whenever he will present it to someone, that person (to whom it will be

offered) will say, 'I am not in need of it, (9) till the people compete with one

another in constructing high buildings, (10) till a man when passing by a grave of

someone will say, 'Would that I were in his place (11) and till the sun rises from the

West. So when the sun will rise and the people will see it (rising from the West)

they will all believe (embrace Islam) but that will be the time when: (As Allah said,)

'No good will it do to a soul to believe then, if it believed not before, nor earned

good (by deeds of righteousness) through its Faith.' (6.158) And the Hour will be

established while two men spreading a garment in front of them but they will not be

able to sell it, nor fold it up; and the Hour will be established when a man has

milked his she-camel and has taken away the milk but he will not be able to drink

it; and the Hour will be established before a man repairing a tank (for his livestock)

is able to water (his animals) in it; and the Hour will be established when a person

has raised a morsel (of food) to his mouth but will not be able to eat it."

Volume 9, Book 88, Number 238:
Narrated Al-Mughira bin Shu'ba:

Nobody asked the Prophet as many questions as I asked regarding Ad-Dajjal.

The Prophet said to me, "What worries you about him?" I said, "Because the

people say that he will have a mountain of bread and a river of water with him (i.e.

he will have abundance of food and water)" The Prophet said, "Nay, he is too

mean to be allowed such a thing by Allah"' (but it is only to test mankind whether

they believe in Allah or in Ad-Dajjal.)
Volume 9, Book 88, Number 239:
Narrated Anas bin Malik:

The Prophet said, "Ad-Dajjal will come and encamp at a place close to Medina

about him which no prophet has told his followers: Ad-Dajjal is one-eyed whereas

Allah is not."
Volume 9, Book 88, Number 242:
Narrated 'Abdullah bin 'Umar:

Allah's Apostle said. "While I was sleeping, I saw myself (in a dream) performing

Tawaf around the Ka'ba. Behold, I saw a reddish-white man with lank hair, and

water was dropping from his head. I asked, "Who is this?' They replied, 'The son

of Mary.' Then I turned my face to see another man with a huge body, red

complexion and curly hair and blind in one eye. His eye looked like a protruding

out grape. They said (to me), He is Ad-Dajjal." The Prophet added, "The man he

resembled most is Ibn Qatan, a man from the tribe of Khuza'a. "

(what would seem to be) fire, would be cold water and (what would seem to be)

Narrated Anas:

The Prophet said, "No prophet was sent but that he warned his followers against

the one-eyed liar (Ad-Dajjal). Beware! He is blind in one eye, and your Lord is

not so, and there will be written between his (Ad-Dajjal's) eyes (the word) Kafir

(i.e., disbeliever)." (This Hadith is also quoted by Abu Huraira and Ibn 'Abbas).

Volume 9, Book 88, Number 246:
Narrated Abu Sa'id:

One day Allah's Apostle narrated to us a long narration about Ad-Dajjal and

among the things he narrated to us, was: "Ad-Dajjal will come, and he will be

forbidden to enter the mountain passes of Medina. He will encamp in one of the

salt areas neighboring Medina and there will appear to him a man who will be the

best or one of the best of the people. He will say 'I testify that you are Ad-Dajjal

whose story Allah's Apostle has told us.' Ad-Dajjal will say (to his audience),

'Look, if I kill this man and then give him life, will you have any doubt about my

claim?' They will reply, 'No,' Then Ad-Dajjal will kill that man and then will make

him alive. The man will say, 'By Allah, now I recognize you more than ever!'

Ad-Dajjal will then try to kill him (again) but he will not be given the power to do

so."
Volume 9, Book 88, Number 247:

Narrated Zainab bint Jahsh:

That one day Allah's Apostle entered upon her in a state of fear and said, "None

has the right to be worshipped but Allah! Woe to the Arabs from the Great evil

that has approached (them). Today a hole has been opened in the dam of Gog and

Magog like this." The Prophet made a circle with his index finger and thumb.

Zainab bint Jahsh added: I said, "O Alllah's Apostle! Shall we be destroyed though

there will be righteous people among us?" The Prophet said, "Yes, if the (number)

of evil (persons) increased."
Volume 9, Book 88, Number 250:

subjects; a man is the guardian of his family (household) and is responsible for his

subjects; a woman is the guardian of her husband's home and of his children and is

responsible for them; and the slave of a man is a guardian of his master's property

and is responsible for it. Surely, everyone of you is a guardian and responsible for

his charges."

That while he was included in a delegation of Quraish staying with Muawiya,

Muawiya heard that 'Abdullah bin 'Amr had said that there would be a king from

Qahtan tribe, whereupon he became very angry. He stood up, and after glorifying

and praising Allah as He deserved, said, "To proceed, I have come to know that

some of you men are narrating things which are neither in Allah's Book, nor has

been mentioned by Allah's Apostle . Such people are the ignorant among you.

Beware of such vain desires that mislead those who have them. I have heard

Allah's Apostle saying, 'This matter (of the caliphate) will remain with the Quraish,

and none will rebel against them, but Allah will throw him down on his face as long

as they stick to the rules and regulations of the religion (Islam).'"

according to it and teaches it to others."

Pre-lslamic period of ignorance (as rebellious sinners). (See Hadith No. 176 and

177)

Narrated 'Abdullah:

The Prophet said, "A Muslim has to listen to and obey (the order of his ruler)

or obey it. (See Hadith No. 203, Vol. 4)
Volume 9, Book 89, Number 259:
Narrated 'Ali:

The Prophet sent an army unit (for some campaign) and appointed a man from the

Ansar as its commander and ordered them (the soldiers) to obey him. (During the

campaign) he became angry with them and said, "Didn't the Prophet order you to

obey me?" They said, "Yes." He said, "I order you to collect wood and make a fire

and then throw yourselves into it." So they collected wood and made a fire, but

when they were about to throw themselves into, it they started looking at each

other, and some of them said, "We followed the Prophet to escape from the fire.

How should we enter it now?" So while they were in that state, the fire

extinguished and their commander's anger abated. The event was mentioned to the

Prophet and he said, "If they had entered it (the fire) they would never have come

out of it, for obedience is required only in what is good." (See Hadith No. 629.

given authority on your demand then you will be held responsible for it, but if you

are given it without asking (for it), then you will be helped (by Allah) in it. If you

ever take an oath to do something and later on you find that something else is

better, then you should expiate your oath and do what is better."

Volume 9, Book 89, Number 261:

him saying, 'Whoever does a good deed in order to show off, Allah will expose his

intentions on the Day of Resurrection (before the people), and whoever puts the

people into difficulties, Allah will put him into difficulties on the Day of

Resurrection.'" The people said (to Jundab), "Advise us." He said, "The first thing

of the human body to purify is the abdomen, so he who can eat nothing but good

food (Halal and earned lawfully) should do so, and he who does as much as he can

that nothing intervene between him and Paradise by not shedding even a handful of

blood, (i.e. murdering) should do so."

woman said (to the Prophet). 'Go away from me, for you do not know my

calamity.'" Anas added, "The Prophet left her and proceeded. A man passed by

her and asked her, 'What has Allah's Apostle said to you?' She replied, 'I did not

recognize him.' The man said, 'He was Allah's Apostle."' Anas added, "So that

woman came to the gate of the Prophet and she did not find a gate-keeper there,

and she said, 'O Allah's Apostle! By Allah. I did not recognize you!' The Prophet

said, 'No doubt, patience is at the first stroke of a calamity.'"

A man came to Allah's Apostle and said, "O Allah's Apostle! By Allah, I fail to

attend the morning congregational prayer because so-and-so (i.e., Muadh bin

Jabal) prolongs the prayer when he leads us for it." I had never seen the Prophet

more furious in giving advice than he was on that day. He then said, "O people!

some of you make others dislike (good deeds, i.e. prayers etc). So whoever

among you leads the people in prayer, he should shorten it because among them

there are the old, the weak and the busy (needy having some jobs to do). (See

Hadith No. 90, Vol. 1)

to divorce her, he may do so."

your family, but today there is no family on the surface of the earth whom I like to

see honored more than yours." Hind added, "Abu Sufyan is a miser. Is it sinful of

me to feed our children from his property?" The Prophet said, "There is no blame

on you if you feed them (thereof) in a just and reasonable manner.

Volume 9, Book 89, Number 276:
Narrated Anas bin Malik:

When the Prophet intended to write to the Byzantines, the people said, "They do

Apostle of Allah'
Volume 9, Book 89, Number 277:

been told that you do certain jobs for the people but when you are given payment

you refuse to take it?" 'Abdullah added: I said, "Yes." 'Umar said, "Why do you do

so?" I said, "I have horses and slaves and I am living in prosperity and I wish that

my payment should be kept as a charitable gift for the Muslims." 'Umar said, "Do

not do so, for I intended to do the same as you do. Allah's Apostles used to give

me gifts and I used to say to him, 'Give it to a more needy one than me.' Once he

gave me some money and I said, 'Give it to a more needy person than me,'

whereupon the Prophet said, 'Take it and keep it in your possession and then give

it in charity. Take what ever comes to you of this money if you are not keen to

have it and not asking for it; otherwise (i.e., if it does not come to you) do not seek

to have it yourself.' "

Narrated 'Abdullah bin 'Umar: I have heard 'Umar saying, "The Prophet used to

give me some money (grant) and I would say (to him), 'Give it to a more needy

one than me.' Once he gave me some money and I said, 'Give it to a more needy

one than me.' The Prophet said (to me), 'Take it and keep it in your possession

and then give it in charity. Take whatever comes to you of this money while you

are not keen to have it and not asking for it; take it, but you should not seek to

have what you are not given. ' "
Volume 9, Book 89, Number 278:
Narrated Sahl bin Sa'd:

I witnessed a husband and a wife who were involved in a case of Lian. Then (the

judgment of) divorce was passed. I was fifteen years of age, at that time.

Volume 9, Book 89, Number 279:
Narrated Sahl:

(the brother of Bani Sa'ida) A man from the Ansar came to the Prophet and said,

"If a man finds another man sleeping with his wife, should he kill him?" That man

and his wife then did Lian in the mosque while I was present.

Volume 9, Book 89, Number 280:
Narrated Abu Huraira:

A man came to Allah's Apostle while he was in the mosque, and called him, saying,

"O Allah's Apostle! I have committed illegal sexual intercourse." The Prophet

turned his face to the other side, but when the man gave four witnesses against

himself, the Prophet said to him, "Are you mad?" The man said, "No." So the

Prophet said (to his companions), "Take him away and stone him to death. "

Volume 9, Book 89, Number 281:
Narrated Um Salama:

Allah's Apostle said, "I am only a human being, and you people (opponents) come

to me with your cases; and it may be that one of you can present his case

eloquently in a more convincing way than the other, and I give my verdict

according to what I hear. So if ever I judge (by error) and give the right of a

brother to his other (brother) then he (the latter) should not take it, for I am giving

him only a piece of Fire." (See Hadith No. 638, Vol. 3).

Volume 9, Book 89, Number 282:
Narrated Abu Qatada:

Allah's Apostle said on the Day of (the battle of) Hunain, "Whoever has killed an

infidel and has a proof or a witness for it, then the salb (arms and belongings of that

deceased) will be for him." I stood up to seek a witness to testify that I had killed

an infidel but I could not find any witness and then sat down. Then I thought that I

should mention the case to Allah's Apostle I (and when I did so) a man from those

who were sitting with him said, "The arms of the killed person he has mentioned,

are with me, so please satisfy him on my behalf." Abu Bakr said, "No, he will not

give the arms to a bird of Quraish and deprive one of Allah's lions of it who fights

for the cause of Allah and His Apostle." Allah's Apostle I stood up and gave it to

me, and I bought a garden with its price, and that was my first property which I

owned through the war booty.

The people of Hijaz said, "A judge should not pass a judgment according to his

knowledge, whether he was a witness at the time he was the judge or before that"

And if a litigant gives a confession in favor of his opponent in the court, in the

opinion of some scholars, the judge should not pass a judgment against him till the

latter calls two witnesses to witness his confession. And some people of Iraq said,

"A judge can pass a judgement according to what he hears or witnesses (the

litigant's confession) in the court itself, but if the confession takes place outside the

court, he should not pass the judgment unless two witnesses witness the

confession." Some of them said, "A judge can pass a judgement depending on his

knowledge of the case as he is trust-worthy, and that a witness is Required just to

reveal the truth. The judge's knowledge is more than the witness." Some said, "A

judge can judge according to his knowledge only in cases involving property, but in

other cases he cannot." Al-Qasim said, "A judge ought not to pass a judgment

depending on his knowledge if other people do not know what he knows, although

his knowledge is more than the witness of somebody else because he might expose

himself to suspicion by the Muslims and cause the Muslims to have unreasonable

doubt. "
Volume 9, Book 89, Number 283:
Narrated 'Ali bin Husain:

Safiya bint (daughter of) Huyai came to the Prophet (in the mosque), and when she

returned (home), the Prophet accompanied her. It happened that two men from the

Ansar passed by them and the Prophet called them saying, "She is Safiya!" those

two men said, "Subhan Allah!" The Prophet said, "Satan circulates in the human

body as blood does."
Volume 9, Book 89, Number 284:
Narrated Abu Burda:

The Prophet sent my father and Mu'adh bin Jabal to Yemen and said (to them),

"Make things easy for the people and do not put hurdles in their way, and give

them glad tiding, and don't let them have aversion (i.e. to make people to hate

good deeds) and you both should work in cooperation and mutual understanding"

Abu Musa said to Allah's Apostle, "In our country a special alcoholic drink called

Al-Bit', is prepared (for drinking)." The Prophet said, "Every intoxicant is

prohibited. "

Volume 9, Book 89, Number 286:
Narrated Abu Humaid Al-Sa'idi:

The Prophet appointed a man from the tribe of Bani Asad, called Ibn Al-Utabiyya

to collect the Zakat. When he returned (with the money) he said (to the Prophet),

"This is for you and this has been given to me as a gift." The Prophet stood up on

the pulpit (Sufyan said he ascended the pulpit), and after glorifying and praising

Allah, he said, "What is wrong with the employee whom we send (to collect Zakat

from the public) that he returns to say, 'This is for you and that is for me?' Why

didn't he stay at his father's and mother's house to see whether he will be given gifts

or not? By Him in Whose Hand my life is, whoever takes anything illegally will

bring it on the Day of Resurrection by carrying it over his neck: if it is a camel, it

will be grunting: if it is a cow, it will be mooing: and if it is a sheep it will be

bleating!" The Prophet then raised both his hands till we saw the whiteness of his

armpits (and he said), "No doubt! Haven't I conveyed Allah's Message?" And he

repeated it three times.
Volume 9, Book 89, Number 287:
Narrated Ibn 'Umar:

Salim, the freed salve of Abu Hudhaifa used to lead in prayer the early Muhajirin

(emigrants) and the companions of the Prophet in the Quba mosque. Among those

(who used to pray behind him) were Abu Bakr, 'Umar, Abu Salama, and Amir bin

Rabi'a.
Volume 9, Book 89, Number 288:
Narrated 'Urwa bin Az-Zubair:

Marwan bin Al-Hakam and Al-Miswar bin Makhrama told him that when the

Muslims were permitted to set free the captives of Hawazin, Allah's Apostle said,

"I do not know who amongst you has agreed (to it) and who has not. Go back so

that your 'Urafa' may submit your decision to us." So the people returned and their

'Urafa' talked to them and then came back to Allah's Apostle and told him that the

people had given their consent happily and permitted (their captives to be freed).

Narrated Um Salama:

(the wife of the Prophet) Allah's Apostle heard some people quarreling at the door

of his dwelling, so he went out to them and said, "I am only a human being, and

litigants with cases of dispute come to me, and someone of you may happen to be

more eloquent (in presenting his case) than the other, whereby I may consider that

he is truthful and pass a judgment in his favor. If ever I pass a judgment in favor of

somebody whereby he takes a Muslim's right unjustly, then whatever he takes is

nothing but a piece of Fire, and it is up to him to take or leave."

Volume 9, Book 89, Number 293:
Narrated 'Aisha:

(the wife of the Prophet) 'Utba bin Abi Waqqas said to his brother Sa'd bin Abi

Waqqas, "The son of the slave girl of Zam'a is from me, so take him into your

custody." So in the year of Conquest of Mecca, Sa'd took him and said. (This is)

my brother's son whom my brother has asked me to take into my custody." 'Abd

bin Zam'a got up before him and said, (He is) my brother and the son of the slave

girl of my father, and was born on my father's bed." So they both submitted their

case before Allah's Apostle. Sa'd said, "O Allah's Apostle! This boy is the son of

my brother and he entrusted him to me." 'Abd bin Zam'a said, "This boy is my

brother and the son of the slave girl of my father, and was born on the bed of my

father." Allah's Apostle said, "The boy is for you, O 'Abd bin Zam'a!" Then Allah's

Apostle further said, "The child is for the owner of the bed, and the stone is for the

adulterer," He then said to Sauda bint Zam'a, "Veil (screen) yourself before him,"

when he saw the child's resemblance to 'Utba. The boy did not see her again till he

met Allah.

The Prophet said, "If somebody on the demand of a judge takes an oath to grab (a

Muslim's) property and he is liar in it, he will meet Allah Who will be angry with

him". So Allah revealed,:--

'Verily! those who purchase a small gain at the cost of Allah's Covenant and their

oaths..' (3.77) 'Al-Ashath came while Abdullah was narrating (this) to the people.

Al-Ashath said, "This verse was revealed regarding me and another man with

whom I had a quarrel about a well. The Prophet said (to me), "Do you have any

evidence?' I replied, 'No.' He said, 'Let your opponent take an oath.' I said: I am

sure he would take a (false) oath." Thereupon it was revealed: 'Verily! those who

purchase a small gain at the cost of Allah's Covenant....' (3.77) (See Hadith No.

72, Vol 6).
Volume 9, Book 89, Number 295:
Narrated Um Salama:

The Prophet heard the voices of some people quarreling near his gate, so he went

to them and said, "I am only a human being and litigants with cases of disputes

come to me, and maybe one of them presents his case eloquently in a more

convincing and impressive way than the other, and I give my verdict in his favor

thinking he is truthful. So if I give a Muslim's right to another (by mistake), then that

(property) is a piece of Fire, which is up to him to take it or leave it." (See Hadith

No. 281 )
Volume 9, Book 89, Number 296:

he (Usama's father) deserved the leadership and used to be one of the most

beloved persons to me, and now his son (Usama) is one of the most beloved

persons to me after him. " (See Hadith No. 745, Vol. 5)

on killing some of them and taking some others as captives, and he gave a captive

to everyone of us and ordered everyone of us to kill his captive. I said, "By Allah, I

shall not kill my captive and none of my companions shall kill his captive!" Then we

mentioned that to the Prophet and he said, "O Allah! I am free from what Khalid

bin Al-Walid has done," and repeated it twice.
Volume 9, Book 89, Number 300:
Narrated Sahl bin Sa'd As-Saidi:

There was some quarrel (sighting) among Bani 'Amr, and when this news reached

the Prophet, he offered the Zuhr prayer and went to establish peace among them.

In the meantime the time of 'Asr prayer was due, Bilal pronounced the Adhan and

then the Iqama for the prayer and requested Abu Bakr (to lead the prayer) and

Abu Bakr went forward. The Prophet arrived while Abu Bakr was still praying. He

entered the rows of praying people till he stood behind Abu Bakr in the (first) row.

The people started clapping, and it was the habit of Abu Bakr that whenever he

stood for prayer, he never glanced side-ways till he had finished it, but when Abu

Bakr observed that the clapping was not coming to an end, he looked and saw the

Prophet standing behind him.

The Prophet beckoned him to carry on by waving his hand. Abu Bakr stood there

for a while, thanking Allah for the saying of the Prophet and then he retreated,

taking his steps backwards. When the Prophet saw that, he went ahead and led

the people in prayer. When he finished the prayer, he said, "O Abu Bakr! What

prevented you from carrying on with the prayer after I beckoned you to do so?"

Abu Bakr replied, "It does not befit the son of Abi Quhafa to lead the Prophet in

prayer." Then the Prophet said to the people, "If some problem arises during

prayers, then the men should say, Subhan Allah!; and the women should clap."

(See Hadith No. 652, Vol. 1)
Volume 9, Book 89, Number 301:
Narrated Zaid bin Thabit:

Abu Bakr sent for me owing to the large number of casualties in the battle of

Al-Yamama, while 'Umar was sitting with him. Abu Bakr said (to me), 'Umar has

come to my and said, 'A great number of Qaris of the Holy Quran were killed on

the day of the battle of Al-Yamama, and I am afraid that the casualties among the

Qaris of the Quran may increase on other battle-fields whereby a large part of the

Quran may be lost. Therefore I consider it advisable that you (Abu Bakr) should

have the Qur'an collected.' I said, 'How dare I do something which Allah's Apostle

did not do?' 'Umar said, By Allah, it is something beneficial.' 'Umar kept on

pressing me for that till Allah opened my chest for that for which He had opened

the chest of 'Umar and I had in that matter, the same opinion as 'Umar had." Abu

Bakr then said to me (Zaid), "You are a wise young man and we do not have any

suspicion about you, and you used to write the Divine Inspiration for Allah's

Apostle. So you should search for the fragmentary scripts of the Quran and collect

it (in one Book)." Zaid further said: By Allah, if Abu Bakr had ordered me to shift

a mountain among the mountains from one place to another it would not have been

heavier for me than this ordering me to collect the Qur'an. Then I said (to 'Umar

and Abu Bakr), "How can you do something which Allah's Apostle did not do?"

Abu Bakr said, "By Allah, it is something beneficial." Zaid added: So he (Abu

Bakr) kept on pressing me for that until Allah opened my chest for that for which

He had opened the chests of Abu Bakr and 'Umar, and I had in that matter, the

same opinion as theirs.

So I started compiling the Quran by collecting it from the leafless stalks of the

date-palm tree and from the pieces of leather and hides and from the stones, and

from the chests of men (who had memorized the Quran). I found the last verses of

Sirat-at-Tauba: ("Verily there has come unto you an Apostle (Muhammad) from

amongst yourselves--' (9.128-129) ) from Khuzaima or Abi Khuzaima and I

added to it the rest of the Sura. The manuscripts of the Quran remained with Abu

Bakr till Allah took him unto Him. Then it remained with 'Umar till Allah took him

unto Him, and then with Hafsa bint 'Umar.
Volume 9, Book 89, Number 302:

Narrated Abu Laila bin 'Abdullah bin Abdur-Rahman bin Sahl:

Sahl bin Abi Hathma and some great men of his tribe said, 'Abdullah bin 'Sahl and

Muhaiyisa went out to Khaibar as they were struck with poverty and difficult living

conditions. Then Muhaiyisa was informed that Abdullah had been killed and

thrown in a pit or a spring. Muhaiyisa went to the Jews and said, "By Allah, you

have killed my companion." The Jews said, "By Allah, we have not killed him."

Muhaiyisa then came back to his people and told them the story. He, his elder

brother Huwaiyisa and 'Abdur-Rahman bin Sahl came (to the Prophet) and he

who had been at Khaibar, proceeded to speak, but the Prophet said to Muhaiyisa,

"The eldest! The eldest!" meaning, "Let the eldest of you speak." So Huwaiyisa

spoke first and then Muhaiyisa. Allah's Apostle said, "The Jews should either pay

the blood money of your (deceased) companion or be ready for war." After that

Allah's Apostle wrote a letter to the Jews in that respect, and they wrote that they

had not killed him. Then Allah's Apostle said to Huwaiyisa, Muhaiyisa and

'Abdur-Rahman, "Can you take an oath by which you will be entitled to take the

blood money?" They said, "No." He said (to them), "Shall we ask the Jews to take

an oath before you?" They replied, "But the Jews are not Muslims." So Allah's

Apostle gave them one-hundred she-camels as blood money from himself. Sahl

added: When those she-camels were made to enter the house, one of them kicked

me with its leg.
Volume 9, Book 89, Number 303:

Narrated Abu Huraira and Zaid bin Khalid Al-Juhani:

A bedouin came and said, "O Allah's Apostle! Judge between us according to

Allah's Book (Laws)." His opponent stood up and said, "He has said the truth, so

judge between us according to Allah's Laws." The bedouin said, "My son was a

laborer for this man and committed illegal sexual intercourse with his wife. The

people said to me, 'Your son is to be stoned to death,' so I ransomed my son for

one hundred sheep and a slave girl. Then I asked the religious learned men and

they said to me, 'Your son has to receive one hundred lashes plus one year of

exile.' " The Prophet said, "I shall judge between you according to Allah's Book

(Laws)! As for the slave girl and the sheep, it shall be returned to you, and your

son shall receive one-hundred lashes and be exiled for one year. O you, Unais!"

The Prophet addressed some man, "Go in the morning to the wife of this man and

stone her to death." So Unais went to her the next morning and stoned her to

death.
Volume 9, Book 89, Number 304:
Narrated 'Abdullah bin 'Abbas:

That Abu Sufyan bin Harb told him that Heraclius had called him along with the

members of a Quraish caravan and then said to his interpreter, "Tell them that I

want to ask this (Abu Sufyan) a question, and if he tries to tell me a lie, they should

contradict him." Then Abu Sufyan mentioned the whole narration and said that

Heraclius said to the inter Peter, "Say to him (Abu Sufyan), 'If what you say is true,

then he (the Prophet) will take over the place underneath my two feet.' "

Volume 9, Book 89, Number 305:
Narrated Abu Humaid As-Sa'idi:

The Prophet employed Ibn Al-Utbiyya to collect Zakat from Bani Sulaim, and

when he returned (with the money) to Allah's Apostle the Prophet called him to

account, and he said, "This (amount) is for you, and this was given to me as a

present." Allah's Apostle said, "Why don't you stay at your father's house or your

mother's house to see whether you will be given gifts or not, if you are telling the

truth?" Then Allah's Apostle stood up and addressed the people, and after

glorifying and praising Allah, he said: Amma Ba'du (then after) I employ some men

from among you for some job which Allah has placed in my charge, and then one

of you comes to me and says, 'This (amount) is for you and this is a gift given to

me.' Why doesn't he stay at the house of his father or the house of his mother and

see whether he will be given gifts or not if he was telling the truth by Allah, none of

you takes anything of it (i.e., Zakat) for himself (Hisham added: unlawfully) but he

will meet Allah on the Day of Resurrection carrying it on his neck! I do not want to

see any of you carrying a grunting camel or a mooing cow or a bleating sheep on

meeting Allah." Then the Prophet raised both his hands till I saw the whiteness of

his armpits, and said, "(No doubt)! Haven't I conveyed Allah's Message!"

Volume 9, Book 89, Number 306:
Narrated Abu Sa'id Al-Khudri:

The Prophet said, "Allah never sends a prophet or gives the Caliphate to a Caliph

but that he (the prophet or the Caliph) has two groups of advisors: A group

advising him to do good and exhorts him to do it, and the other group advising him

to do evil and exhorts him to do it. But the protected person (against such evil

advisors) is the one protected by Allah.' "
Volume 9, Book 89, Number 307:
Narrated 'Ubada bin As-Samit:

We gave the oath of allegiance to Allah's Apostle that we would listen to and obey

him both at the time when we were active and at the time when we were tired and

that we would not fight against the ruler or disobey him, and would stand firm for

the truth or say the truth wherever we might be, and in the Way of Allah we would

not be afraid of the blame of the blamers. (See Hadith No. 178 and 320)

Volume 9, Book 89, Number 308:
Narrated Anas:

The Prophet went out on a cold morning while the Muhajirin (emigrants) and the

Ansar were digging the trench. The Prophet then said, "O Allah! The real goodness

is the goodness of the Here after, so please forgive the Ansar and the Muhajirin."

They replied, "We are those who have given the Pledge of allegiance to

Muhammad for to observe Jihad as long as we remain alive."

Volume 9, Book 89, Number 309:
Narrated 'Abdullah bin 'Umar:

Whenever we gave the Pledge of allegiance to Allah's Apostle for to listen to and

obey, he used to say to us, for as much as you can"

Narrated 'Abdullah bin Dinar:

I witnessed Ibn 'Umar when the people gathered around 'Abdul Malik. Ibn 'Umar

wrote: I gave the Pledge of allegiance that I will listen to and obey Allah's Slave,

'Abdul Malik, Chief of the believers according to Allah's Laws and the Traditions

of His Apostle as much as I can; and my sons too, give the same pledge.'

Volume 9, Book 89, Number 311:
Narrated Jabir bin 'Abdullah:

I gave the Pledge of allegiance to the Prophet that I would listen and obey, and he

told me to add: 'As much as I can, and will give good advice to every Muslim.'

Volume 9, Book 89, Number 312:
Narrated 'Abdullah bin Dinar:

When the people took the oath of allegiance to 'Abdul Malik, 'Abdullah bin 'Umar

wrote to him: "To Allah's Slave, 'Abdul Malik, Chief of the believers, I give the

Pledge of allegiance that I will listen to and obey Allah's Slave, 'Abdul Malik, Chief

of the believers, according to Allah's Laws and the Traditions of His Apostle in

whatever is within my ability; and my sons too, give the same pledge."

Volume 9, Book 89, Number 313:
Narrated Yazid:

I said to Salama, "For what did you give the Pledge of allegiance to the Prophet on

the Day of Hudaibiya?" He replied, "For death."
Volume 9, Book 89, Number 314:
Narrated Al-Miswar bin Makhrama:

The group of people whom 'Umar had selected as candidates for the Caliphate

gathered and consulted each other. Abdur-Rahman said to them, "I am not going

to compete with you in this matter, but if you wish, I would select for you a caliph

from among you." So all of them agreed to let 'Abdur-Rahman decide the case. So

when the candidates placed the case in the hands of 'Abdur-Rahman, the people

went towards him and nobody followed the rest of the group nor obeyed any after

him. So the people followed 'Abdur-Rahman and consulted him all those nights till

there came the night we gave the oath of allegiance to 'Uthman. Al-Miswar (bin

Makhrama) added: 'Abdur-Rahman called on me after a portion of the night had

passed and knocked on my door till I got up, and he said to me, "I see you have

been sleeping! By Allah, during the last three nights I have not slept enough. Go

and call Az-Zubair and Sa'd.' So I called them for him and he consulted them and

then called me saying, 'Call 'Ali for me." I called 'Ali and he held a private talk with

him till very late at night, and then 'Al, got up to leave having had much hope (to be

chosen as a Caliph) but 'Abdur-Rahman was afraid of something concerning 'Ali.

'Abdur-Rahman then said to me, "Call 'Uthman for me." I called him and he kept

on speaking to him privately till the Mu'adhdhin put an end to their talk by

announcing the Adhan for the Fajr prayer. When the people finished their morning

prayer and that (six men) group gathered near the pulpit, 'Abdur-Rahman sent for

all the Muhajirin (emigrants) and the Ansar present there and sent for the army

chief who had performed the Hajj with 'Umar that year. When all of them had

gathered, 'Abdur-Rahman said, "None has the right to be worshipped but Allah,"

and added, "Now then, O 'Ali, I have looked at the people's tendencies and

noticed that they do not consider anybody equal to 'Uthman, so you should not

incur blame (by disagreeing)." Then 'Abdur-Rahman said (to 'Uthman), "I gave the

oath of allegiance to you on condition that you will follow Allah's Laws and the

traditions of Allah's Apostle and the traditions of the two Caliphs after him." So

'Abdur-Rahman gave the oath of allegiance to him, and so did the people including

the Muhajirin (emigrants) and the Ansar and the chiefs of the army staff and all the

Muslims.
Volume 9, Book 89, Number 315:
Narrated Salama:

We gave the oath of allegiance to the Prophet under the tree. He said to me, "O

Salama! Will you not give the oath of allegiance?" I replied, "O Allah's Apostle! I

have already given the oath of allegiance for the first time." He said, (Give it again)

for the second time.

A bedouin gave the Pledge of allegiance to Allah's Apostle for Islam and the

bedouin got a fever where upon he said to the Prophet "Cancel my Pledge." But

the Prophet refused. He came to him (again) saying, "Cancel my Pledge.' But the

like a pair of bellows (furnace): It expels its impurities and brightens and clears its

good."

a little child," and passed his hand over his head and invoked Allah for him.

'Abdullah bin Hisham used to slaughter one sheep as a sacrifice on behalf of all of

his family.

Apostle said, "Medina is like a pair of bellows (furnace): It expels its impurities and

brightens and clears its good.
Volume 9, Book 89, Number 319:
Narrated Abu Huraira:

Allah's Apostle said, "There will be three types of people whom Allah will neither

speak to them on the Day of Resurrection nor will purify them from sins, and they

will have a painful punishment: They are, (1) a man possessed superfluous water

(more than he needs) on a way and he withholds it from the travelers. (2) a man

who gives a pledge of allegiance to an Imam (ruler) and gives it only for worldly

benefits, if the Imam gives him what he wants, he abides by his pledge, otherwise

he does not fulfill his pledge; (3) and a man who sells something to another man

after the 'Asr prayer and swears by Allah (a false oath) that he has been offered so

much for it whereupon the buyer believes him and buys it although in fact, the seller

has not been offered such a price." (See Hadith No. 838, Vol. 3)

Volume 9, Book 89, Number 320:
Narrated 'Ubada bin As-Samit:

Allah's Apostle said to us while we were in a gathering, "Give me the oath (Pledge

of allegiance for: (1) Not to join anything in worship along with Allah, (2) Not to

steal, (3) Not to commit illegal sexual intercourse, (4) Not to kill your children, (5)

Not to accuse an innocent person (to spread such an accusation among people),

(6) Not to be disobedient (when ordered) to do good deeds. The Prophet added:

Whoever amongst you fulfill his pledge, his reward will be with Allah, and whoever

commits any of those sins and receives the legal punishment in this world for that

sin, then that punishment will be an expiation for that sin, and whoever commits any

of those sins and Allah does not expose him, then it is up to Allah if He wishes He

will punish him or if He wishes, He will forgive him." So we gave the Pledge for

that. (See Hadith No. 17, Vol. 1)
Volume 9, Book 89, Number 321:

The Prophet used to take the Pledge of allegiance from the women by words only

after reciting this Holy Verse:--(60.12) "..that they will not associate anything in

worship with Allah." (60.12) And the hand of Allah's Apostle did not touch any

woman's hand except the hand of that woman his right hand possessed. (i.e. his

captives or his lady slaves).
Volume 9, Book 89, Number 322:
Narrated Um Atiyya:

We gave the Pledge of allegiance to the Prophet and he recited to me the verse

(60.12). That they will not associate anything in worship with Allah (60.12). And

he also prevented us from wailing and lamenting over the dead. A woman from us

held her hand out and said, "Such-and-such a woman cried over a dead person

belonging to my family and I want to compensate her for that crying" The Prophet

did not say anything in reply and she left and returned. None of those women

abided by her pledge except Um Sulaim, Um Al-'Ala', and the daughter of Abi

Sabra, the wife of Al-Muadh or the daughter of Abi Sabra, and the wife of

Mu'adh.
Volume 9, Book 89, Number 323:

the next day with a fever and said to the Prophet "Cancel my pledge." But the

Prophet refused and when the bedouin went away, the Prophet said, "Medina is

like a pair of bellows (furnace): It expels its impurities and brightens and clears its

good."
Volume 9, Book 89, Number 324:
Narrated Al-Qasim bin Muhammad:

'Aisha said, "O my head!" Allah's Apostle said, "If that (i.e., your death) should

happen while I am still alive, I would ask Allah to forgive you and would invoke

Allah for you." 'Aisha said, "O my life which is going to be lost! By Allah, I think

that you wish for my death, and if that should happen then you would be busy

enjoying the company of one of your wives in the last part of that day." The

Prophet said, "But I should say, 'O my head!' I feel like calling Abu Bakr and his

son and appoint (the former as my successors lest people should say something or

wish for something. Allah will insist (on Abu Bakr becoming a Caliph) and the

believers will prevent (anyone else from claiming the Caliphate)," or "..Allah will

prevent (anyone else from claiming the Caliphate) and the believers will insist (on

Abu Bakr becoming the Caliph)."
Volume 9, Book 89, Number 325:
Narrated 'Abdullah bin 'Umar:

It was said to 'Umar, "Will you appoint your successor?" Umar said, "If I appoint a

Caliph (as my successor) it is true that somebody who was better than I (i.e., Abu

Bakr) did so, and if I leave the matter undecided, it is true that somebody who was

better than I (i.e., Allah's Apostle) did so." On this, the people praised him. 'Umar

said, "People are of two kinds: Either one who is keen to take over the Caliphate

or one who is afraid of assuming such a responsibility. I wish I could be free from

its responsibility in that I would receive neither reward nor retribution I won't bear

the burden of the caliphate in my death as I do in my life."

Volume 9, Book 89, Number 326:
Narrated Anas bin Malik:

That he heard 'Umar's second speech he delivered when he sat on the pulpit on the

day following the death of the Prophet 'Umar recited the Tashahhud while Abu

Bakr was silent. 'Umar said, "I wish that Allah's Apostle had outlived all of us, i.e.,

had been the last (to die). But if Muhammad is dead, Allah nevertheless has kept

the light amongst you from which you can receive the same guidance as Allah

guided Muhammad with that. And Abu Bakr is the companion of Allah's Apostle

He is the second of the two in the cave. He is the most entitled person among the

Muslims to manage your affairs. Therefore get up and swear allegiance to him."

Some people had already taken the oath of allegiance to him in the shed of Bani

Sa'ida but the oath of allegiance taken by the public was taken at the pulpit. I heard

'Umar saying to Abu Bakr on that day. "Please ascend the pulpit," and kept on

urging him till he ascended the pulpit whereupon, all the people swore allegiance to

him.
Volume 9, Book 89, Number 327:
Narrated Jubair bin Mut'im:

A woman came to the Prophet and spoke to him about something and he told her

to Abu Bakr."

Allah's Apostle said, "By Him in Whose Hands my life is, I was about to order for

collecting fire wood and then order someone to pronounce the Adhan for the

prayer and then order someone to lead the people in prayer and then I would go

from behind and burn the houses of men who did not present themselves for the

(compulsory congregational) prayer. By Him in Whose Hands my life is, if anyone

of you had known that he would receive a bone covered with meat or two (small)

pieces of meat present in between two ribs, he would come for 'Isha' prayer." (See

Hadith No. 617, Vol. 1)
Volume 9, Book 89, Number 331:
Narrated 'Abdullah bin Ka'b bin Malik:

Who was Ka'b's guide from among his sons when Ka'b became blind: I heard

Ka'b bin Malik saying, "When some people remained behind and did not join

Allah's Apostle in the battle of Tabuk.." and then he described the whole narration

and said, "Allah's Apostle forbade the Muslims to speak to us, and so we (I and

my companions) stayed fifty nights in that state, and then Allah's Apostle

announced Allah's acceptance of our repentance."
Translation of Sahih Bukhari, Book 90:

Volume 9, Book 90, Number 332:
Narrated Abu Huraira:

I heard Allah's Apostle saying, "By Him in Whose Hands my life is! Were it not for

some men who dislike to be left behind and for whom I do not have means of

conveyance, I would not stay away (from any Holy Battle). I would love to be

martyred in Allah's Cause and come to life and then get, martyred and then come

to life and then get martyred and then get resurrected and then get martyred.

life) and then get martyred and then resurrected (come to life) and then get

martyred, and then resurrected (come to life) and then get martyred and then

resurrected (come to life)." Abu Huraira used to repeat those words three times

and I testify to it with Allah's Oath.

The Prophet said, "If I had gold equal to the mountain of Uhud, I would love that,

Narrated 'Aisha:

Allah's Apostle said, "If I had formerly known hat I came to know lately, I would

not have driven the Hadi with me and would have finished the state of Ihram along

with the people when they finished it
Volume 9, Book 90, Number 336:
Narrated Jabir bin Abdullah:

We were in the company of Allah's Apostle and we assumed the state of Ihram of

Hajj and arrived at Mecca on the fourth of Dhul-Hijja. The Prophet ordered us to

perform the Tawaf around the Ka'ba and (Sa'i) between As-Safa and Al-Marwa

and use our lhram just for 'Umra, and finish the state of Ihram unless we had our

Hadi with us. None of us had the Hadi with him except the Prophet and Talha.

1AIj came from Yemen and brought the Hadi with him. 'Ali said, 'I had assumed

the state of Ihram with the same intention as that with which Allah's Apostle had

assumed it. The people said, "How can we proceed to Mina and our male organs

are dribbling?" Allah's Apostle said, "If I had formerly known what I came to know

latterly, I would not have brought the Hadi, and had there been no Hadi with me, I

would have finished my Ihram." Suraqa (bin Malik) met the Prophet while he was

throwing pebbles at the Jamrat-al-'Aqaba, and asked, "O Allah's Apostle! Is this

(permitted) for us only?" The Prophet replied. "No, it is forever" 'Aisha had arrived

at Mecca while she was menstruating, therefore the Prophet ordered her to

perform all the ceremonies of Hajj except the Tawaf around the Ka'ba, and not to

perform her prayers unless and until she became clean . When they encamped at

Al-Batha, 'Aisha said, "O Allah's Apostle! You are proceeding after performing

both Hajj and 'Umra while I am proceeding with Hajj only?" So the Prophet

ordered 'Abdur-Rahman bin Abu Bakr As-Siddiq to go with her to At-Tan'im,

and so she performed the 'Umra in Dhul-Hijja after the days of the Hajj.

Volume 9, Book 90, Number 337:
Narrated Aisha:

One night the Prophet was unable to sleep and said, "Would that a righteous man

from my companions guarded me tonight." Suddenly we heard the clatter of arms,

whereupon the Prophet said, "Who is it?" It was said, "I am Sa'd, O Allah's

Apostle! I have come to guard you." The Prophet then slept so soundly that we

heard him snoring. Abu 'Abdullah said: 'Aisha said: Bilal said, "Would that I but

stayed overnight in a valley with Idhkhir and Jalil (two kinds of grass) around me

(i.e., in Mecca)." Then I told that to the Prophet .

Volume 9, Book 90, Number 338:
Narrated Abu Huraira:

Allah's Apostle said, "Not to wish to be the like except of two men. A man whom

Allah has given the (knowledge of the) Qur'an and he recites it during the hours of

night and day and the one who wishes says: If I were given the same as this (man)

has been given, I would do what he does, and a man whom Allah has given wealth

and he spends it in the just and right way, in which case the one who wishes says,

'If I were given the same as he has been given, I would do what he does.' " (See

The Prophet was carrying earth with us on the day of the battle of Al-Ahzab

(confederates) and I saw that the dust was covering the whiteness of his abdomen,

and he (the Prophet ) was saying, "(O Allah) ! Without You, we would not have

been guided, nor would we have given in charity, nor would we have prayed. So

(O Allah!) please send tranquility (Sakina) upon us as they, (the chiefs of the

enemy tribes) have rebelled against us. And if they intend affliction (i.e. want to

frighten us and fight against us) then we would not (flee but withstand them). And

Ka'ba?" He said, "(Because) your people ran short of money." I asked, "Then why

is its gate so high?" He replied, ''Your people did so in order to admit to it whom

they would and forbid whom they would. Were your people not still close to the

period of ignorance, and were I not afraid that their hearts might deny my action,

then surely I would include the wall in the Ka'ba and make its gate touch the

ground."

'Uyaina, and when the latter entered, he said, "O the son of Al-Khattab! By Allah,

good (right), and leave the foolish (i.e. do not punish them).' (7.199) and this

"There is not anything that I have not seen before but I have seen now at this place

of mine, even Paradise and Hell. It has been revealed to me that you people will be

put to trial nearly like the trial of Ad-Dajjal, in your graves. As for the true believer

or a Muslim (the sub-narrator is not sure as to which of the two (words Asma' had

said) he will say, 'Muhammad came with clear signs from Allah, and we responded

to him (accepted his teachings) and believed (what he said)' It will be said (to him)

'Sleep in peace; we have known that you were a true believer who believed with

certainty.' As for a hypocrite or a doubtful person, (the sub-narrator is not sure as

saying something and so I said the same.' "

doing till I was afraid that this (Tarawih prayer) might be enjoined on you, and if it

Me! " Then a man got up and asked, ''Where will my entrance be, O Allah's

Apostle?" The Prophet said, "(You will go to) the Fire." Then 'Abdullah bin

Hudhaifa got up and asked, "Who is my father, O Allah's Apostle?" The Prophet

replied, "Your father is Hudhaifa." The Prophet then kept on saying (angrily), "Ask

me! Ask me!" 'Umar then knelt on his knees and said, "We have accepted Allah as

our Lord and Islam as our religion and Muhammad as an Apostle." Allah's Apostle

became quiet when 'Umar said that. Then Allah's Apostle said, "By Him in Whose

Hand my life is, Paradise and Hell were displayed before me across this wall while

I was praying, and I never saw such good and evil as I have seen today."

Volume 9, Book 92, Number 400:
Narrated Ibn Masud:

I was with the Prophet at one of the farms of Medina while he was leaning on a

date palm leaf-stalk. He passed by a group of Jews and some of them said to the

other, Ask him (the Prophet) about the spirit. Some others said, "Do not ask him,

lest he should tell you what you dislike" But they went up to him and said, "O Abal

Qasim! Inform us bout the spirit." The Prophet stood up for a while, waiting. I

realized that he was being Divinely Inspired, so I kept away from him till the

inspiration was over. Then the Prophet said, "(O Muhammad) they ask you

regarding the spirit, Say: The spirit its knowledge is with my Lord (i.e., nobody has

its knowledge except Allah)" (17.85) (This is a miracle of the Qur'an that all the

scientists up till now do not know about the spirit, i.e, how life comes to a body

and how it goes away at its death) (See Hadith No. 245, Vol. 6)

Volume 9, Book 92, Number 401:
Narrated Ibn 'Umar:

The Prophet wore a gold ring and then the people followed him and wore gold

their rings away.
Volume 9, Book 92, Number 402:
Narrated Abu Huraira:

The Prophet said (to his companions), "Do not fast Al-Wisal." They said, "But you

fast Al-Wisail." He said, "I am not like you, for at night my Lord feeds me and

makes me drink." But the people did not give up Al-Wisal, so the Prophet fasted

Al-Wisal with them for two days or two nights, and then they saw the crescent

whereupon the Prophet said, "If the crescent had delayed, I would have continued

fasting (because of you)," as if he wanted to vanquish them completely (because

they had refused to give up Al Wisal).
Volume 9, Book 92, Number 403:
Narrated Ibrahim At Tamii's father:

Ali addressed us while he was standing on a brick pulpit and carrying a sword

from which was hanging a scroll He said "By Allah, we have no book to read

except Allah's Book and whatever is on this scroll," And then he unrolled it, and

behold, in it was written what sort of camels were to be given as blood money, and

there was also written in it: 'Medina is a sanctuary form 'Air (mountain) to such and

such place so whoever innovates in it an heresy or commits a sin therein, he will

incur the curse of Allah, the angles, and all the people and Allah will not accept his

compulsory or optional good deeds.' There was also written in it: 'The asylum

(pledge of protection) granted by any Muslims is one and the same, (even a

Muslim of the lowest status is to be secured and respected by all the other

Muslims, and whoever betrays a Muslim in this respect (by violating the pledge)

will incur the curse of Allah, the angels, and all the people, and Allah will not

accept his compulsory or optional good deeds.' There was also written in it:

'Whoever (freed slave) befriends (takes as masters) other than his real masters

(manumitters) without their permission will incur the curse of Allah, the angels, and

all the people, and Allah will not accept his compulsory or optional good deeds. '

The Prophet did something as it was allowed from the religious point of view but

some people refrained from it. When the Prophet heard of that, he, after glorifying

and praising Allah, said, "Why do some people refrain from doing something which

I do? By Allah, I know Allah more than they."
Volume 9, Book 92, Number 405:
Narrated Ibn Abi Mulaika:

Once the two righteous men, i.e., Abu Bakr and 'Umar were on the verge of

destruction (and that was because): When the delegate of Bani Tamim came to the

Prophet, one of them (either Abu Bakr or 'Umar) recommended Al-Aqra' bin

Habis At-Tamimi Al-Hanzali, the brother of Bani Majashi (to be appointed as their

chief), while the other recommended somebody else. Abu Bakr said to 'Umar,

"You intended only to oppose me." 'Umar said, "I did not intend to oppose you!"

Then their voices grew louder in front of the Prophet whereupon there was

revealed: 'O you who believe! Do not raise your voices above the voice of the

Prophet..a great reward.' (49.2-3) Ibn Az-Zubair said, 'Thence forward when

'Umar talked to the Prophet, he would talk like one who whispered a secret and

would even fail to make the Prophet hear him, in which case the Prophet would

ask him (to repeat his words)."
Volume 9, Book 92, Number 406:
Narrated 'Aisha:

(the mother of believers) Allah's Apostle during his fatal ailment said, "Order Abu

Bakr to lead the people in prayer." I said, "If Abu Bakr stood at your place (in

prayers, the people will not be able to hear him because of his weeping, so order

'Umar to lead the people in prayer." He again said, "Order Abu Bakr to lead the

people in prayer " Then I said to Hafsa, "Will you say (to the Prophet), 'If Abu

Bakr stood at your place, the people will not be able to hear him be cause of his

weeping, so order 'Umar to lead the people in prayer?" Hafsa did so, whereupon

Allah's Apostle said, "You are like the companions of Joseph (See Qur'an,

12:30-32). Order Abu Bakr to lead the people in prayer." Hafsa then said to me,

"I have never received any good from you!"
Volume 9, Book 92, Number 407:
Narrated Sahl bin Sa'd As-Sa'idi:

'Uwaimir Al-'Ajlani came to 'Asim bin 'Adi and said, "If a man found another man

with his wife and killed him, would you sentence the husband to death (in Qisas,)

i.e., equality in punishment)? O 'Asim! Please ask Allah's Apostle about this matter

on my behalf." 'Asim asked the Prophet but the Prophet disliked the question and

disapproved of it. 'Asim returned and informed 'Uwaimir that the Prophet disliked

that type of question. 'Uwaimir said, "By Allah, I will go (personally) to the

Prophet." 'Uwaimir came to the Prophet when Allah had already revealed Qur'anic

Verses (in that respect), after 'Asim had left (the Prophet ). So the Prophet said to

'Uwaimir, "Allah has revealed Qur'anic Verses regarding you and your wife." The

Prophet then called for them, and they came and carried out the order of Lian.

Then 'Uwaimir said, "O Allah's Apostle! Now if I kept her with me, I would be

accused of telling a lie." So 'Uwaimir divorced her although the Prophet did not

order him to do so. Later on this practice of divorcing became the tradition of

couples involved in a case of Li'an. The Prophet said (to the people). "Wait for

her! If she delivers a red short (small) child like a Wahra (a short red animal). then

I will be of the opinion that he ('Uwaimir) has told a lie but if she delivered a black

big-eyed one with big buttocks, then I will be of the opinion that he has told the

truth about her." 'Ultimately she gave birth to a child that proved the accusation.

(See Hadith No. 269, Vol. 6)
Volume 9, Book 92, Number 408:
Narrated Malik bin Aus An-Nasri:

I proceeded till I entered upon 'Umar (and while I was sitting there), his

gate-keeper Yarfa came to him and said, " 'Uthman, 'Abdur-Rahman, Az-Zubair

and Sa'd ask your permission to come in." 'Umar allowed them. So they entered,

greeted, and sat down. (After a while the gatekeeper came) and said, "Shall I

admit 'Ali and 'Abbas?'' 'Umar allowed them to enter. Al-'Abbas said "O Chief of

the believers! Judge between me and the oppressor ('Ali)." Then there was a

dispute (regarding the property of Bani Nadir) between them ('Abbas and 'Ali).

'Uthman and his companions said, "O Chief of the Believers! Judge between them

and relieve one from the other." Umar said, "Be patient! beseech you by Allah,

with Whose permission the Heaven and the Earth Exist! Do you know that Allah's

Apostle said, 'Our property is not to be inherited, and whatever we leave is to be

given in charity,' and by this Allah's Apostle meant himself?" On that the group

said, "He verily said so." 'Umar then faced 'Ali and 'Abbas and said, "I beseech

you both by Allah, do you both know that Allah's Apostle said so?" They both

replied, "Yes". 'Umar then said, "Now I am talking to you about this matter (in

detail) . Allah favored Allah's Apostle with some of this wealth which He did not

give to anybody else, as Allah said: 'What Allah bestowed as Fai (Booty on His

Apostle for which you made no expedition... ' (59.6)

So that property was totally meant for Allah's Apostle, yet he did not collect it and

ignore you, nor did he withhold it with your exclusion, but he gave it to you and

distributed it among you till this much of it was left behind, and the Prophet, used to

spend of this as the yearly expenditures of his family and then take what remained

of it and spent it as he did with (other) Allah's wealth. The Prophet did so during all

his lifetime, and I beseech you by Allah, do you know that?" They replied, "Yes."

'Umar then addressed 'Ali and 'Abbas, saying, "I beseech you both by Allah, do

you know that?" Both of them replied, "Yes." 'Umar added, "Then Allah took His

Apostle unto Him. Abu Bakr then said 'I am the successor of Allah's Apostle' and

took over all the Prophet's property and disposed of it in the same way as Allah's

Apostle used to do, and you were present then." Then he turned to 'Ali and 'Abbas

and said, "You both claim that Abu Bakr did so-and-so in managing the property,

but Allah knows that Abu Bakr was honest, righteous, intelligent, and a follower of

what is right in managing it.

Then Allah took Abu Bakr unto Him, 'I said: I am the successor of Allah's Apostle

and Abu Bakr.' So I took over the property for two years and managed it in the

same way as Allah's Apostle, and Abu Bakr used to do. Then you both ('Ali and

'Abbas) came to me and asked for the same thing! (O 'Abbas! You came to me to

ask me for your share from nephew's property; and this ('Ali) came to me asking

for his wives share from her father's property, and I said to you both, 'If you wish,

I will place it in your custody on condition that you both will manage it in the same

way as Allah's Apostle and Abu Bakr did and as I have been doing since I took

charge of managing it; otherwise, do not speak to me anymore about it.'

Then you both said, 'Give it to us on that (condition).' So I gave it to you on that

condition. Now I beseech you by Allah, did I not give it to them on that

condition?" The group (whom he had been addressing) replied, "Yes." 'Umar then

addressed 'Abbas and 'Ali saying, "I beseech you both by Allah, didn't I give you

all that property on that condition?" They said, "Yes." 'Umar then said, "Are you

now seeking a verdict from me other than that? By Him with Whose Permission

the Heaven and the Earth exists I will not give any verdict other than that till the

Hour is established; and if you both are unable to manage this property, then you

can hand it back to me, and I will be sufficient for it on your behalf." (See, Hadith

No. 326, Vol. 4)
Volume 9, Book 92, Number 409:
Narrated 'Asim:

I said to Anas, "Did Allah's Apostle make Medina a sanctuary?" He replied, "Yes,

(Medina is a sanctuary from such-and-such place to such-and-such place. It is

forbidden to cut its trees, and whoever innovates an heresy in it or commits a sin

therein, will incur the curse of Allah, the angels, and all the people." Then Musa bin

Anas told me that Anas added, "..... or gives refuge to such an heretic or a

sinner..."

consulted, will give verdicts according to their opinions whereby they will mislead

others and go astray."

myself on the day of Abi Jandal; if I had the power to refuse the order of Allah's

Apostle, I would have refused it.

We have never put our swords on our shoulders to get involved in a situation that

might have been horrible for us, but those swords brought us to victory and peace,

except this present situation.' " Abu Wail said, "I witnessed the battle of Siffin, and

how nasty Siffin was!"

wealth?" But the Prophet did not give me any reply till the Verse of the laws of

you." Allah's Apostle said, "Gather on such-and-such a day at such-and-such a

place." They gathered and Allah's Apostle came to them and taught them of what

Allah had taught him. He then said, "No woman among you who has lost her three

children (died) but that they will screen her from the Fire." A woman among them

said, "O Allah's Apostle! If she lost two children?" She repeated her question

twice, whereupon the Prophet said, "Even two, even two, even two!" (See Hadith

bedouin said, "They are red." The Prophet said, "Are any of them Grey?" He said,

"There are Grey ones among them." The Prophet said, "Whence do you think this

color came to them?" The bedouin said, "O Allah's Apostle! It resulted from

did.'' He said, "What is that?" I said, "I heard the Prophet saying, "Its Diya (blood

money) is either a male or a female slave.' " 'Umar said, "Do not leave till you

Believers died, we will give the oath of allegiance to such-and-such person,' 'Umar

said, 'Do not do so, for the season (of Hajj) gathers the riffraff mob who will form

the majority of your audience, and I am afraid that they will not understand (the

meaning of) your saying properly and may spread (an incorrect statement)

everywhere. You should wait till we reach Medina, the place of migration and the

place of the Sunna (the Prophet's Traditions). There you will meet the companions

of Allah's Apostle from the Muhajirin and the Ansar who will understand your

statement and place it in its proper position' 'Umar said, 'By Allah, I shall do so the

first time I stand (to address the people) in Medina.' When we reached Medina,

them."

prayer, saying, "O Allah, our Lord! All the praises are for you." And in the last

(Rak'a) he said, "O Allah! Curse so-and-so and so--and-so." And then Allah

revealed:-- 'Not for you (O Muhammad) is the decision, (but for Allah), whether

He turns in mercy to them or punish them, for they are indeed wrongdoers.'

Our souls are in the Hands of Allah and when he wants us to get up, He makes us

get up." When 'Ali said that to him, Allah's Apostle left without saying anything to

him. While the Prophet was leaving, 'Ali heard him striking his thigh (with his hand)

and saying, "But man is quarrelsome more than anything else." (18.54)

(embrace Islam) and you will be safe!" They said, "You have conveyed Allah's

message, O Aba-al-Qasim" Allah's Apostle then said to them, "That is what I

want; embrace Islam and you will be safe." They said, "You have conveyed the

message, O Aba-al-Qasim." Allah's Apostle then said to them, "That is what I

want," and repeated his words for the third time and added, "Know that the earth

is for Allah and I want to exile you from this land, so whoever among you has

property he should sell it, otherwise, know that the land is for Allah and His

Apostle."
Volume 9, Book 92, Number 448:

Allah's Apostle said, "Noah will be brought (before Allah) on the Day of

Resurrection, and will be asked, 'Did you convey the message of Allah?" He will

reply, 'Yes, O Lord.' And then Noah's nation will be asked, 'Did he (Noah)

convey Allah's message to you?' They will reply, 'No warner came to us.' Then

Noah will be asked, 'Who are your witnesses?' He will reply. '(My witnesses are)

Muhammad and his followers.' Thereupon you (Muslims) will be brought and you

will bear witness." Then the Prophet recited: 'And thus We have made of you

(Muslims) a just and the best nation, that you might be witness over the nations,

and the Apostle a witness over you.' (2.143)

Apostle asked him, "Are all the dates of Khaibar like that?" He replied, "No, by

Allah, O Allah's Apostle! We take one Sa' of these (good) dates for two Sas of

mixed dates." Allah's Apostle then said, "Do not do so. You should either take one

Sa of this (kind) for one Sa' of the other; or sell one kind and then buy with its

price the other kind (of dates), and you should do the same in weighing."

Apostle's verdict) he will receive a double reward, and if he gives a verdict

according to the best of his knowledge and his verdict is wrong, (i.e. against that of

Allah and His Apostle) even then he will get a reward ."

Volume 9, Book 92, Number 451:
Narrated 'Ubai bin 'Umar:

Abu Musa asked permission to enter upon 'Umar, but seeing that he was busy, he

went away. 'Umar then said, "Didn't I hear the voice of 'Abdullah bin Qais? Allow

him to come in." He was called in and 'Umar said to him, "What made you do what

you did." He replied, "We have been instructed thus by the Prophet" 'Umar said,

"Bring proof (witness) for this, other wise I will do so-and-so to you." Then

'Abdullah bin Qais went to a gathering of the Ansar who then said, "None but the

youngest of us will give the witness for it." So Abu Said Al-Khudri got up and said,

"We used to be instructed thus (by the Prophet)." 'Umar said, "This tradition of the

Prophet remained hidden from me. Business in the market kept me busy."

Volume 9, Book 92, Number 452:
Narrated Al-A'raj:

Abu Huraira said, "You people claim that Abu Huraira narrates many narrations of

Allah's Apostle. (Anyhow) with Allah will be our appointment. I was a poor man,

and used to stick to Allah's Apostle contented with what will fill my stomach, and

the Muhajirin (emigrants) used to be busy trading in the markets, and the Ansar

used to be busy looking after their properties. One-day I heard Allah's Apostle

saying, 'Who will spread his Rida' (a garment covering the upper part of the body)

till I finished my speech and then fold it, (i.e. wrap it over your body), in which

case he will never forget anything he had heard from me." So I spread my garment

which I was wearing; and by Him Who sent Muhammad with the Truth, ever since,

I have never forgotten whatever I heard from him (the Prophet)" (See, Hadith No.

119, Vol. 1)
Volume 9, Book 92, Number 453:

by Allah regarding this matter in the presence of the Prophet and the Prophet did

not disapprove of it."
Volume 9, Book 92, Number 454:
Narrated Abu Huraira:

Allah's Apostle said, "Horses may be used for three purposes: For a man they may

be a source of reward (in the Hereafter); for another, a means of protection; and

for another, a source of sin. The man for whom they are a source of reward, is the

one who keeps them for Allah's Cause and ties them with long ropes and lets them

graze in a pasture or garden. Whatever those long ropes allow them to eat of that

pasture or garden, will be written as good deeds for him and if they break their

ropes and run one or two rounds, then all their footsteps and dung will be written

as good deeds for him, and if they pass a river and drink from it though he has had

no intention of watering them, even then, that will be written as good deeds for him.

So such horses are a source of reward for that man. For the man who keeps

horses for his livelihood in order not to ask others for help or beg his bread, and at

the same time he does not forget Allah's right of what he earns through them and of

their backs (that he presents it to be used in Allah's Cause), such horses are a

shelter for him (from poverty). For the man who keeps them just out of pride and

for showing off, they are a source of sin." Then Allah's Apostle was asked about

donkeys. He said, "Allah has not revealed anything to me regarding them except

this comprehensive Verse:

"Then anyone who has done good, equal to the weight of an atom (or a small ant)

shall see it, and any one who has done evil, equal to the weight of an atom (or a

small ant) shall see it." (99.7-8)

periods. He said, "Take a perfumed piece of cloth and clean yourself with it." She

said,' "How shall I clean myself with it, O Allah's Apostle?" The Prophet said,

"Clean yourself" She said again, "How shall I clean myself, O Allah's Apostle?"

The Prophet said, "Clean yourself with it." Then I knew what Allah's Apostle

meant. So I pulled her aside and explained it to her.

Volume 9, Book 92, Number 457:
Narrated Ibn 'Abbas:

Um Hufaid bint Al-Harith bin Hazn presented the Prophet with some butter, dried

yoghurt (curd milk) and mastigures as a gift. The Prophet then asked for a meal

(mastigures etc. to be put) and it was eaten over his table cloth, but the Prophet

did not eat of it, as he had aversion to it. But if it had been illegal to eat, it would

not have been eaten over his table cloth nor would he have ordered that

(mastigures meat) to be eaten
Volume 9, Book 92, Number 458:
Narrated Jabir bin Abdullah:

The Prophet said, "Whoever has eaten garlic or onion, should keep away from us,

or should keep away from our mosque and should stay at home." Ibn Wahb said,

"Once a plate full of cooked vegetables was brought to the Prophet at Badr.

Detecting a bad smell from it, he asked about the dish and was informed of the

kinds of vegetables in contained. He then said, "Bring it near," and so it was

brought near to one of his companions who was with him. When the Prophet saw

it, he disliked eating it and said (to his companion), "Eat, for I talk in secret to ones

whom you do not talk to."

if she meant the death (of the Prophet)."
Volume 9, Book 92, Number 460:
Narrated Abu Huraira:

The people of the Book used to read the Torah in Hebrew and then explain it in

Arabic to the Muslims. Allah's Apostle said (to the Muslims). "Do not believe the

people of the Book, nor disbelieve them, but say, 'We believe in Allah and

whatever is revealed to us, and whatever is revealed to you.' "

Volume 9, Book 92, Number 461:
Narrated Ubaidullah:

Ibn 'Abbas said, "Why do you ask the people of the scripture about anything while

your Book (Quran) which has been revealed to Allah's Apostle is newer and the

latest? You read it pure, undistorted and unchanged, and Allah has told you that

the people of the scripture (Jews and Christians) changed their scripture and

distorted it, and wrote the scripture with their own hands and said, 'It is from

Allah,' to sell it for a little gain. Does not the knowledge which has come to you

prevent you from asking them about anything? No, by Allah, we have never seen

any man from them asking you regarding what has been revealed to you!"

Volume 9, Book 92, Number 462:
Narrated 'Aisha:

After the slanderers had given a forged statement against her, Allah's Apostle

called 'Ali bin Abi Talib and Usama bin Zaid when the Divine Inspiration was

delayed. He wanted to ask them and consult them about the question of divorcing

me. Usama gave his evidence that was based on what he knew about my

innocence, but 'Ali said, "Allah has not put restrictions on you and there are many

women other than her. Furthermore you may ask the slave girl who will tell you the

truth." So the Prophet asked Barira (my salve girl), "Have you seen anything that

may arouse your suspicion?" She replied, "I have not seen anything more than that

she is a little girl who sleeps, leaving the dough of her family (unguarded) that the

domestic goats come and eat it." Then the Prophet stood on the pulpit and said, "O

Muslims! Who will help me against the man who has harmed me by slandering my

wife? By Allah, I know nothing about my family except good." The narrator added:

Then the Prophet mentioned the innocence of 'Aisha. (See Hadith No. 274, Vol.

6)
Volume 9, Book 92, Number 463:
Narrated Aisha:

Allah's Apostle addressed the people, and after praising and glorifying Allah, he

said, "What do you suggest me regarding those people who are abusing my wife? I

have never known anything bad about her." The sub-narrator, 'Urwa, said: When

'Aisha was told of the slander, she said, "O Allah's Apostle! Will you allow me to

go to my parents' home?" He allowed her and sent a slave along with her. An

Ansari man said, "Subhanaka! It is not right for us to speak about this. Subhanaka!

This is a great lie!"
Volume 9, Book 92, Number 464:
Narrated Ata:

I heard Jabir bin 'Abdullah in a gathering saying, "We, the companions of Allah's

Apostle assumed the state of Ihram to perform only Hajj without 'Umra." Jabir

added, "The Prophet arrived (at Mecca) on the fourth of Dhul-Hijja. And when we

arrived (in Mecca) the Prophet ordered us to finish the state of Ihram, saying,

"Finish your lhram and go to your wives (for sexual relation)." Jabir added, "The

Prophet did not oblige us (to go to our wives) but he only made that legal for us.

Then he heard that we were saying, "When there remains only five days between

us and the Day of Arafat he orders us to finish our Ihram by sleeping with our

wives in which case we will proceed to 'Arafat with our male organs dribbling with

semen?' (Jabir pointed out with his hand illustrating what he was saying). Allah's

Apostle stood up and said, 'You (People) know that I am the most Allah-fearing,

the most truthful and the best doer of good deeds (pious) from among you. If I had

not brought the Hadi with me, I would have finished my Ihram as you will do, so

finish your Ihram. If I had formerly known what I came to know lately, I would not

have brought the Hadi with me.' So we finished our Ihram and listened to the

Prophet and obeyed him." (See Hadith No. 713, Vol. 2)

Volume 9, Book 92, Number 465:
Narrated 'Abdullah Al Muzam:

The Prophet said, "Perform (an optional) prayer before Maghrib prayer." (He

When the time of the death of the Prophet approached while there were some men

in the house, and among them was 'Umar bin Al-Khatttab, the Prophet said,

"Come near let me write for you a writing after which you will never go astray."

'Umar said, "The Prophet is seriously ill, and you have the Quran, so Allah's Book

is sufficient for us." The people in the house differed and disputed. Some of them

said, "Come near so that Allah's Apostle may write for you a writing after which

you will not go astray," while some of them said what 'Umar said. When they made

much noise and differed greatly before the Prophet, he said to them, "Go away and

leave me." Ibn 'Abbas used to say, "It was a great disaster that their difference and

noise prevented Allah's Apostle from writing that writing for them.

When the Prophet sent Muadh to Yemen, he said to him, "You are going to a

nation from the people of the Scripture, so let the first thing to which you will invite

them, be the Tauhid of Allah. If they learn that, tell them that Allah has enjoined on

them, five prayers to be offered in one day and one night. And if they pray, tell

them that Allah has enjoined on them Zakat of their properties and it is to be taken

from the rich among them and given to the poor. And if they agree to that, then

A man heard another man reciting (in the prayers): 'Say (O Muhammad): "He is

recitation of that Sura by itself was not enough. Allah's Apostle said, "By Him in

Whose Hand my life is, it is equal to one-third of the Quran."

battle), they mentioned that to the Prophet. He said (to them), "Ask him why he

does so." They asked him and he said, "I do so because it mentions the qualities of

the Beneficent and I love to recite it (in my prayer)." The Prophet; said (to them),

takes is His, and whatever He gives is His, and everything with Him has a limited

fixed term (in this world). So order her to be patient and hope for Allah's reward."

But she sent the messenger to the Prophet again, swearing that he should come to

her. So the Prophets got up, and so did Sa'd bin 'Ubada and Mu'adh bin Jabal

(and went to her). When the child was brought to the Prophet his breath was

disturbed in his chest as if it were in a water skin. On that the eyes of the Prophet .

became flooded with tears, whereupon Sa'd said to him, "O Allah's Apostle! What

is this?" The Prophet said, "This is mercy which Allah has put in the heart of His

slaves, and Allah bestows His mercy only on those of His slaves who are merciful

(to others)." (See Hadith No. 373, Vol. 2)

Your Blessings on me in that matter. O Allah! If You know that this matter is not

Allah's Apostle sent ten persons to bring the enemy's secrets and Khubaib

Al-Ansari was one of them. 'Ubaidullah bin 'Iyad told me that the daughter of

Al-Harith told him that when they gathered (to kill Khubaib Al Ansari) he asked

for a razor to clean his pubic region, and when they had taken him outside the

sanctuary of Mecca in order to kill him, he said in verse, "I don't care if I am killed

as a Muslim, on any side (of my body) I may be killed in Allah's Cause; for that is

for the sake of Allah's very Self; and if He will, He will bestow His Blessings upon

the torn pieces of my body." Then Ibn Al-Harith killed him, and the Prophet

informed his companions of the death of those (ten men) on the very day they were

killed.

The Prophet said, "Allah says: 'I am just as My slave thinks I am, (i.e. I am able to

do for him what he thinks I can do for him) and I am with him if He remembers

Me. If he remembers Me in himself, I too, remember him in Myself; and if he

remembers Me in a group of people, I remember him in a group that is better than

they; and if he comes one span nearer to Me, I go one cubit nearer to him; and if

he comes one cubit nearer to Me, I go a distance of two outstretched arms nearer

to him; and if he comes to Me walking, I go to him running.' "

when this Verse:--'Say (O Muhammad!): He has Power to send torments on you

from above,' (6.65) was revealed; The Prophet said, "I take refuge with Your

Face." Allah revealed:-- '..or from underneath your feet.' (6.65) The Prophet then

said, "I seek refuge with Your Face!" Then Allah revealed:--'...or confuse you in

party-strife.' (6.65) Oh that, the Prophet said, "This is easier."

is not hidden from you; He is not one-eyed," and pointed with his hand towards his

eye, adding, "While Al-Masih Ad-Dajjal is blind in the right eye and his eye looks

like a protruding grape."
Volume 9, Book 93, Number 505:
Narrated Anas:

The Prophet said, "Allah did not send any prophet but that he warned his nation of

the one-eyed liar (Ad-Dajjal). He is one-eyed while your Lord is not one-eyed,

The word 'Kafir' (unbeliever) is written between his two eyes."

Volume 9, Book 93, Number 506:
Narrated Abu Said Al-Khudri:

That during the battle with Bani Al-Mustaliq they (Muslims) captured some females

and intended to have sexual relation with them without impregnating them. So they

asked the Prophet about coitus interrupt us. The Prophet said, "It is better that you

should not do it, for Allah has written whom He is going to create till the Day of

Resurrection." Qaza'a said, "I heard Abu Sa'id saying that the Prophet said, 'No

soul is ordained to be created but Allah will create it."

Volume 9, Book 93, Number 507:
Narrated Anas:

The Prophet said, "Allah will gather the believers on the Day of Resurrection in the

same way (as they are gathered in this life), and they will say, 'Let us ask someone

to intercede for us with our Lord that He may relieve us from this place of ours.'

Then they will go to Adam and say, 'O Adam! Don't you see the people (people's

condition)? Allah created you with His Own Hands and ordered His angels to

prostrate before you, and taught you the names of all the things. Please intercede

for us with our Lord so that He may relieve us from this place of ours.' Adam will

say, 'I am not fit for this undertaking' and mention to them the mistakes he had

committed, and add, "But you d better go to Noah as he was the first Apostle sent

by Allah to the people of the Earth.' They will go to Noah who will reply, 'I am not

fit for this undertaking,' and mention the mistake which he made, and add, 'But

you'd better go to Abraham, Khalil Ar-Rahman.'

They will go to Abraham who will reply, 'I am not fit for this undertaking,' and

mention to them the mistakes he made, and add, 'But you'd better go to Moses, a

slave whom Allah gave the Torah and to whom He spoke directly' They will go to

Moses who will reply, 'I am not fit for this undertaking,' and mention to them the

mistakes he made, and add, 'You'd better go to Jesus, Allah's slave and His

Apostle and His Word (Be: And it was) and a soul created by Him.' They will go

to Jesus who will say, 'I am not fit for this undertaking, but you'd better go to

Muhammad whose sins of the past and the future had been forgiven (by Allah).' So

they will come to me and I will ask the permission of my Lord, and I will be

permitted (to present myself) before Him. When I see my Lord, I will fall down in

(prostration) before Him and He will leave me (in prostration) as long as He

wishes, and then it will be said to me, 'O Muhammad! Raise your head and speak,

for you will be listened to; and ask, for you will be granted (your request); and

intercede, for your intercession will be accepted.' I will then raise my head and

praise my Lord with certain praises which He has taught me, and then I will

intercede. Allah will allow me to intercede (for a certain kind of people) and will fix

a limit whom I will admit into Paradise.

I will come back again, and when I see my Lord (again), I will fall down in

prostration before Him, and He will leave me (in prostration) as long as He wishes,

and then He will say, 'O Muhammad! Raise your head and speak, for you will be

listened to; and ask, for you will be granted (your request); and intercede, for your

intercession will be accepted.' I will then praise my Lord with certain praises which

He has taught me, and then I will intercede. Allah will allow me to intercede (for a

certain kind of people) and will fix a limit to whom I will admit into Paradise, I will

return again, and when I see my Lord, I will fall down (in prostration) and He will

leave me (in prostration) as long as He wishes, and then He will say, 'O

Muhammad! Raise your head and speak, for you will be listened to, and ask, for

you will be granted (your request); and intercede, for your intercession will be

accepted.' I will then praise my Lord with certain praises which He has taught me,

and then I will intercede. Allah will allow me to intercede (for a certain kind of

people) and will fix a limit to whom I will admit into Paradise. I will come back and

say, 'O my Lord! None remains in Hell (Fire) but those whom Qur'an has

imprisoned therein and for whom eternity in Hell (Fire) has become inevitable.' "

The Prophet added, "There will come out of Hell (Fire) everyone who says: 'La

ilaha illal-lah,' and has in his heart good equal to the weight of a barley grain. Then

there will come out of Hell (Fire) everyone who says: ' La ilaha illal-lah,' and has in

his heart good equal to the weight of a wheat grain. Then there will come out of

Hell (Fire) everyone who says: 'La ilaha illal-lah,' and has in his heart good equal to

the weight of an atom (or a smallest ant)."

Apostle smiled till his premolar teeth became visible, and then recited:--

King! I am the King!' " I saw the Prophet (after hearing that), smiling till his

premolar teeth became visible, and he then recited: -- 'No just estimate have they

made of Allah such as due to him... (39.67)
Volume 9, Book 93, Number 512:
Narrated Al-Mughira:

Sa'd bin 'Ubada said, "If I saw a man with my wife, I would strike him (behead

him) with the blade of my sword." This news reached Allah's Apostle who then

said, "You people are astonished at Sa'd's Ghira. By Allah, I have more Ghira than

he, and Allah has more Ghira than I, and because of Allah's Ghira, He has made

unlawful Shameful deeds and sins (illegal sexual intercourse etc.) done in open and

in secret. And there is none who likes that the people should repent to Him and

beg His pardon than Allah, and for this reason He sent the warners and the givers

of good news. And there is none who likes to be praised more than Allah does,

and for this reason, Allah promised to grant Paradise (to the doers of good)."

'Abdul Malik said, "No person has more Ghira than Allah."

Prophet said, "O Bani Tamim! Accept the good news!" They said, "You have

given us the good news; now give us (something)." (After a while) some Yemenites

entered, and he said to them, "O the people of Yemen! Accept the good news, as

Bani Tamim have refused it. " They said, "We accept it, for we have come to you

to learn the Religion. So we ask you what the beginning of this universe was." The

Prophet said "There was Allah and nothing else before Him and His Throne was

over the water, and He then created the Heavens and the Earth and wrote

everything in the Book." Then a man came to me and said, 'O Imran! Follow your

she-camel for it has run away!" So I set out seeking it, and behold, it was beyond

the mirage! By Allah, I wished that it (my she-camel) had gone but that I had not

left (the gathering). "
Volume 9, Book 93, Number 515:
Narrated Abu Huraira:

The Prophet said, "The Right (Hand) of Allah Is full, and (Its fullness) is not

affected by the continuous spending night and day. Do you see what He has spent

since He created the Heavens and the Earth? Yet all that has not decreased what is

in His Right Hand. His Throne is over the water and in His other Hand is the

Bounty or the Power to bring about death, and He raises some people and brings

others down." (See Hadith No. 508)

perfectly and fasts (the month of) Ramadan then it is incumbent upon Allah to

admit him into Paradise, whether he emigrates for Allah's cause or stays in the land

where he was born." They (the companions of the Prophet) said, "O Allah's

Apostle! Should we not inform the people of that?" He said, "There are

one-hundred degrees in Paradise which Allah has prepared for those who carry on

Jihad in His Cause. The distance between every two degrees is like the distance

between the sky and the Earth, so if you ask Allah for anything, ask Him for the

Firdaus, for it is the last part of Paradise and the highest part of Paradise, and at its

top there is the Throne of Beneficent, and from it gush forth the rivers of Paradise."

Volume 9, Book 93, Number 520:

prostrate, and it is allowed, and (one day) it, as if being ordered to return whence it

came, then it will rise from the west." Then the Prophet recited, "That: "And the sun

runs on its fixed course (for a term decreed)," (36.38) as it is recited by 'Abdullah.

brings up a baby horse, till it becomes like a mountain." Abu Huraira said: The

Prophet. said, "Nothing ascends to Allah except good."

Volume 9, Book 93, Number 526:
Narrated Ibn Abbas:

Allah's Apostle used to say at the time of difficulty, "None has the right to be

worshipped but Allah, the Majestic, the Most Forbearing. None has the right to be

worshipped but Allah, the Lord of the Tremendous Throne. None has the right to

be worshipped but Allah, the Lord of the Heavens and the Lord of the Honourable

Throne. (See Hadith No. 357, Vol. 8)
Volume 9, Book 93, Number 527:
Narrated Abu Said Al-Khudri:

When 'Ali was in Yemen, he sent some gold in its ore to the Prophet. The Prophet

distributed it among Al-Aqra' bin Habis Al-Hanzali who belonged to Bani Mujashi,

'Uyaina bin Badr Al-Fazari, 'Alqama bin 'Ulatha Al-'Amiri, who belonged to the

Bani Kilab tribe and Zaid AI-Khail At-Ta'i who belonged to Bani Nabhan. So the

Quraish and the Ansar became angry and said, "He gives to the chiefs of Najd and

leaves us!" The Prophet said, "I just wanted to attract and unite their hearts (make

them firm in Islam)." Then there came a man with sunken eyes, bulging forehead,

thick beard, fat raised cheeks, and clean-shaven head, and said, "O Muhammad!

Be afraid of Allah! " The Prophet said, "Who would obey Allah if I disobeyed

Him? (Allah). He trusts me over the people of the earth, but you do not trust me?"

A man from the people (present then), who, I think, was Khalid bin Al-Walid,

asked for permission to kill him, but the Prophet prevented him. When the man

went away, the Prophet said, "Out of the offspring of this man, there will be people

who will recite the Quran but it will not go beyond their throats, and they will go

out of Islam as an arrow goes out through the game, and they will kill the Muslims

and leave the idolators. Should I live till they appear, I would kill them as the

Killing of the nation of 'Ad."
Volume 9, Book 93, Number 528:

I asked the Prophet regarding the Verse:--'And the sun runs on its fixed course for

a term decreed for it.' (36.28) He said, "Its fixed course is underneath Allah's

Throne."
Volume 9, Book 93, Number 529:
Narrated Jarir:

We were sitting with the Prophet and he looked at the moon on the night of the

full-moon and said, "You people will see your Lord as you see this full moon, and

you will have no trouble in seeing Him, so if you can avoid missing (through sleep

or business, etc.) a prayer before sunrise (Fajr) and a prayer before sunset (Asr)

you must do so." (See Hadith No. 529, Vol. 1)
Volume 9, Book 93, Number 530:
Narrated Jarir bin 'Abdullah:

The Prophet said, "You will definitely see your Lord with your own eyes."

Volume 9, Book 93, Number 531:
Narrated Jarir:

Allah's Apostle came out to us on the night of the full moon and said, "You will see

your Lord on the Day of Resurrection as you see this (full moon) and you will have

no difficulty in seeing Him."
Volume 9, Book 93, Number 532c:
Narrated 'Ata' bin Yazid Al-Laithi:

On the authority of Abu Huraira: The people said, "O Allah's Apostle! Shall we

see our Lord on the Day of Resurrection?" The Prophet said, "Do you have any

difficulty in seeing the moon on a full moon night?" They said, "No, O Allah's

Apostle." He said, "Do you have any difficulty in seeing the sun when there are no

clouds?" They said, "No, O Allah's Apostle." He said, "So you will see Him, like

that. Allah will gather all the people on the Day of Resurrection, and say, 'Whoever

worshipped something (in the world) should follow (that thing),' so, whoever

worshipped the sun will follow the sun, and whoever worshiped the moon will

follow the moon, and whoever used to worship certain (other false) deities, he will

follow those deities. And there will remain only this nation with its good people (or

its hypocrites). (The sub-narrator, Ibrahim is in doubt.) Allah will come to them

and say, 'I am your Lord.' They will (deny Him and) say, 'We will stay here till our

Lord comes, for when our Lord comes, we will recognize Him.' So Allah will

come to them in His appearance which they know, and will say, 'I am your Lord.'

They will say, 'You are our Lord,' so they will follow Him.

Then a bridge will be laid across Hell (Fire)' I and my followers will be the first

ones to go across it and none will speak on that Day except the Apostles. And the

invocation of the Apostles on that Day will be, 'O Allah, save! Save!' In Hell (or

over The Bridge) there will be hooks like the thorns of As-Sa'dan (thorny plant).

Have you seen As-Sa'dan? " They replied, "Yes, O Allah's Apostle!" He said, "So

those hooks look like the thorns of As-Sa'dan, but none knows how big they are

except Allah. Those hooks will snap the people away according to their deeds.

Some of the people will stay in Hell (be destroyed) because of their (evil) deeds,

and some will be cut or torn by the hooks (and fall into Hell) and some will be

punished and then relieved. When Allah has finished His Judgments among the

people, He will take whomever He will out of Hell through His Mercy. He will then

order the angels to take out of the Fire all those who used to worship none but

Allah from among those whom Allah wanted to be merciful to and those who

testified (in the world) that none has the right to be worshipped but Allah. The

angels will recognize them in the Fire by the marks of prostration (on their

foreheads), for the Fire will eat up all the human body except the mark caused by

prostration as Allah has forbidden the Fire to eat the mark of prostration. They will

come out of the (Hell) Fire, completely burnt and then the water of life will be

poured over them and they will grow under it as does a seed that comes in the mud

of the torrent.

Then Allah will finish the judgments among the people, and there will remain one

man facing the (Hell) Fire and he will be the last person among the people of Hell

to enter Paradise. He will say, 'O my Lord! Please turn my face away from the fire

because its air has hurt me and its severe heat has burnt me.' So he will invoke

Allah in the way Allah will wish him to invoke, and then Allah will say to him, 'If I

grant you that, will you then ask for anything else?' He will reply, 'No, by Your

Power, (Honor) I will not ask You for anything else.' He will give his Lord

whatever promises and covenants Allah will demand.

So Allah will turn his face away from Hell (Fire). When he will face Paradise and

will see it, he will remain quiet for as long as Allah will wish him to remain quiet,

then he will say, 'O my Lord! Bring me near to the gate of Paradise.' Allah will say

to him, 'Didn't you give your promises and covenants that you would never ask for

anything more than what you had been given? Woe on you, O Adam's son! How

treacherous you are!' He will say, 'O my lord,' and will keep on invoking Allah till

He says to him, 'If I give what you are asking, will you then ask for anything else?'

He will reply, 'No, by Your (Honor) Power, I will not ask for anything else.'

Then he will give covenants and promises to Allah and then Allah will bring him

near to the gate of Paradise. When he stands at the gate of Paradise, Paradise will

be opened and spread before him, and he will see its splendor and pleasures

whereupon he will remain quiet as long as Allah will wish him to remain quiet, and

then he will say, O my Lord! Admit me into Paradise.' Allah will say, 'Didn't you

give your covenants and promises that you would not ask for anything more than

what you had been given?' Allah will say, 'Woe on you, O Adam's son! How

treacherous you are! '

The man will say, 'O my Lord! Do not make me the most miserable of Your

creation,' and he will keep on invoking Allah till Allah will laugh because of his

sayings, and when Allah will laugh because of him, He will say to him, 'Enter

Paradise,' and when he will enter it, Allah will say to him, 'Wish for anything.' So he

will ask his Lord, and he will wish for a great number of things, for Allah Himself

will remind him to wish for certain things by saying, '(Wish for) so-and-so.' When

there is nothing more to wish for, Allah will say, 'This is for you, and its equal (is for

you) as well."

'Ata' bin Yazid added: Abu Sa'id Al-Khudri who was present with Abu Huraira,

did not deny whatever the latter said, but when Abu Huraira said that Allah had

said, "That is for you and its equal as well," Abu Sa'id Al-Khudri said, "And ten

times as much, O Abu Huraira!" Abu Huraira said, "I do not remember, except his

saying, 'That is for you and its equal as well.'" Abu Sa'id Al-Khudri then said, "I

testify that I remember the Prophet saying, 'That is for you, and ten times as much.'

' Abu Huraira then added, "That man will be the last person of the people of

Paradise to enter Paradise."
Volume 9, Book 93, Number 532s:
Narrated Abu Sa'id Al-Khudri:

We said, "O Allah's Apostle! Shall we see our Lord on the Day of Resurrection?"

He said, "Do you have any difficulty in seeing the sun and the moon when the sky is

clear?" We said, "No." He said, "So you will have no difficulty in seeing your Lord

on that Day as you have no difficulty in seeing the sun and the moon (in a clear

sky)." The Prophet then said, "Somebody will then announce, 'Let every nation

follow what they used to worship.' So the companions of the cross will go with

their cross, and the idolators (will go) with their idols, and the companions of every

god (false deities) (will go) with their god, till there remain those who used to

worship Allah, both the obedient ones and the mischievous ones, and some of the

people of the Scripture. Then Hell will be presented to them as if it were a mirage.

Then it will be said to the Jews, "What did you use to worship?' They will reply,

'We used to worship Ezra, the son of Allah.' It will be said to them, 'You are liars,

for Allah has neither a wife nor a son. What do you want (now)?' They will reply,

'We want You to provide us with water.' Then it will be said to them 'Drink,' and

they will fall down in Hell (instead). Then it will be said to the Christians, 'What did

you use to worship?'

They will reply, 'We used to worship Messiah, the son of Allah.' It will be said,

'You are liars, for Allah has neither a wife nor a son. What: do you want (now)?'

They will say, 'We want You to provide us with water.' It will be said to them,

'Drink,' and they will fall down in Hell (instead). When there remain only those who

used to worship Allah (Alone), both the obedient ones and the mischievous ones, it

will be said to them, 'What keeps you here when all the people have gone?' They

will say, 'We parted with them (in the world) when we were in greater need of

them than we are today, we heard the call of one proclaiming, 'Let every nation

follow what they used to worship,' and now we are waiting for our Lord.' Then the

Almighty will come to them in a shape other than the one which they saw the first

time, and He will say, 'I am your Lord,' and they will say, 'You are not our Lord.'

And none will speak: to Him then but the Prophets, and then it will be said to them,

'Do you know any sign by which you can recognize Him?' They will say. 'The

Shin,' and so Allah will then uncover His Shin whereupon every believer will

prostrate before Him and there will remain those who used to prostrate before Him

just for showing off and for gaining good reputation. These people will try to

prostrate but their backs will be rigid like one piece of a wood (and they will not

be able to prostrate). Then the bridge will be laid across Hell." We, the

companions of the Prophet said, "O Allah's Apostle! What is the bridge?'

He said, "It is a slippery (bridge) on which there are clamps and (Hooks like) a

thorny seed that is wide at one side and narrow at the other and has thorns with

bent ends. Such a thorny seed is found in Najd and is called As-Sa'dan. Some of

the believers will cross the bridge as quickly as the wink of an eye, some others as

quick as lightning, a strong wind, fast horses or she-camels. So some will be safe

without any harm; some will be safe after receiving some scratches, and some will

fall down into Hell (Fire). The last person will cross by being dragged (over the

bridge)." The Prophet said, "You (Muslims) cannot be more pressing in claiming

from me a right that has been clearly proved to be yours than the believers in

interceding with Almighty for their (Muslim) brothers on that Day, when they see

themselves safe.

They will say, 'O Allah! (Save) our brothers (for they) used to pray with us, fast

with us and also do good deeds with us.' Allah will say, 'Go and take out (of Hell)

anyone in whose heart you find faith equal to the weight of one (gold) Dinar.' Allah

will forbid the Fire to burn the faces of those sinners. They will go to them and find

some of them in Hell (Fire) up to their feet, and some up to the middle of their legs.

So they will take out those whom they will recognize and then they will return, and

Allah will say (to them), 'Go and take out (of Hell) anyone in whose heart you find

faith equal to the weight of one half Dinar.' They will take out whomever they will

recognize and return, and then Allah will say, 'Go and take out (of Hell) anyone in

whose heart you find faith equal to the weight of an atom (or a smallest ant), and so

they will take out all those whom they will recognize." Abu Sa'id said: If you do not

believe me then read the Holy Verse:--

'Surely! Allah wrongs not even of the weight of an atom (or a smallest ant) but if

there is any good (done) He doubles it.' (4.40) The Prophet added, "Then the

prophets and Angels and the believers will intercede, and (last of all) the Almighty

(Allah) will say, 'Now remains My Intercession. He will then hold a handful of the

Fire from which He will take out some people whose bodies have been burnt, and

they will be thrown into a river at the entrance of Paradise, called the water of life.

They will grow on its banks, as a seed carried by the torrent grows. You have

noticed how it grows beside a rock or beside a tree, and how the side facing the

sun is usually green while the side facing the shade is white. Those people will

come out (of the River of Life) like pearls, and they will have (golden) necklaces,

and then they will enter Paradise whereupon the people of Paradise will say,

'These are the people emancipated by the Beneficent. He has admitted them into

Paradise without them having done any good deeds and without sending forth any

good (for themselves).' Then it will be said to them, 'For you is what you have seen

and its equivalent as well.'"
Volume 9, Book 93, Number 532v:
Narrated Anas:

The Prophet said, "The believers will be kept (waiting) on the Day of Resurrection

so long that they will become worried and say, "Let us ask somebody to intercede

far us with our Lord so that He may relieve us from our place.

Then they will go to Adam and say, 'You are Adam, the father of the people. Allah

created you with His Own Hand and made you reside in His Paradise and ordered

His angels to prostrate before you, and taught you the names of all things will you

intercede for us with your Lord so that He may relieve us from this place of ours?

Adam will say, 'I am not fit for this undertaking.' He will mention his mistakes he

had committed, i.e., his eating off the tree though he had been forbidden to do so.

He will add, 'Go to Noah, the first prophet sent by Allah to the people of the

Earth.' The people will go to Noah who will say, 'I am not fit for this undertaking'

He will mention his mistake which he had done, i.e., his asking his Lord without

knowledge.' He will say (to them), 'Go to Abraham, Khalil Ar-Rahman.' They will

go to Abraham who will say, 'I am not fit for this undertaking. He would mention

three words by which he told a lie, and say (to them). 'Go to Moses, a slave whom

Allah gave the Torah and spoke to, directly and brought near Him, for

conversation.'

They will go to Moses who will say, 'I am not fit for this undertaking. He will

mention his mistake he made, i.e., killing a person, and will say (to them), 'Go to

Jesus, Allah's slave and His Apostle, and a soul created by Him and His Word.'

(Be: And it was.) They will go to Jesus who will say, 'I am not fit for this

undertaking but you'd better go to Muhammad the slave whose past and future sins

have been forgiven by Allah.' So they will come to me, and I will ask my Lord's

permission to enter His House and then I will be permitted. When I see Him I will

fall down in prostration before Him, and He will leave me (in prostration) as long

as He will, and then He will say, 'O Muhammad, lift up your head and speak, for

you will be listened to, and intercede, for your intercession will be accepted, and

ask (for anything) for it will be granted:' Then I will raise my head and glorify my

Lord with certain praises which He has taught me. Allah will put a limit for me (to

intercede for a certain type of people) I will take them out and make them enter

Paradise." (Qatada said: I heard Anas saying that), the Prophet said, "I will go out

and take them out of Hell (Fire) and let them enter Paradise, and then I will return

and ask my Lord for permission to enter His House and I will be permitted.

When I will see Him I will fall down in prostration before Him and He will leave me

in prostration as long as He will let me (in that state), and then He will say, 'O

Muhammad, raise your head and speak, for you will be listened to, and intercede,

for your intercession will be accepted, and ask, your request will be granted.' " The

Prophet added, "So I will raise my head and glorify and praise Him as He has

taught me. Then I will intercede and He will put a limit for me (to intercede for a

certain type of people). I will take them out and let them enter Paradise." (Qatada

added: I heard Anas saying that) the Prophet said, 'I will go out and take them out

of Hell (Fire) and let them enter Paradise, and I will return for the third time and

will ask my Lord for permission to enter His house, and I will be allowed to enter.

When I see Him, I will fall down in prostration before Him, and will remain in

prostration as long as He will, and then He will say, 'Raise your head, O

Muhammad, and speak, for you will be listened to, and intercede, for your

intercession will be accepted, and ask, for your request will be granted.' So I will

raise my head and praise Allah as He has taught me and then I will intercede and

He will put a limit for me (to intercede for a certain type of people). I will take

them out and let them enter Paradise." (Qatada said: I heard Anas saying that) the

Prophet said, "So I will go out and take them out of Hell (Fire) and let them enter

Paradise, till none will remain in the Fire except those whom Quran will imprison

(i.e., those who are destined for eternal life in the fire)." The narrator then recited

the Verse:-- "It may be that your Lord will raise you to a Station of Praise and

Glory.' (17.79) The narrator added: This is the Station of Praise and Glory which

Allah has promised to your Prophet.

Narrated Ibn 'Abbas:

Whenever the Prophet offered his Tahajjud prayer, he would say, "O Allah, our

Lord! All the praises are for You; You are the Keeper (Establisher or the One

Who looks after) of the Heavens and the Earth. All the Praises are for You; You

are the Light of the Heavens and the Earth and whatever is therein. You are the

Truth, and Your saying is the Truth, and Your promise is the Truth, and the

meeting with You is the Truth, and Paradise is the Truth, and the (Hell) Fire is the

Truth. O Allah! I surrender myself to You, and believe in You, and I put my trust in

You (solely depend upon). And to You I complain of my opponents and with

Your Evidence I argue. So please forgive the sins which I have done in the past or

I will do in the future, and also those (sins) which I did in secret or in public, and

that which You know better than I. None has the right to be worshipped but You."

Volume 9, Book 93, Number 535:

people from seeing their Lord except the Cover of Majesty over His Face in the

Paradise of Eden (eternal bliss)."
Volume 9, Book 93, Number 537:
Narrated 'Abdullah:

The Prophet said, "Whoever takes the property of a Muslim by taking a false oath,

will meet Allah Who will be angry with him." Then the Prophet recited the Verse:--

'Verily those who purchase a small gain at the cost of Allah's Covenant and their

oaths, they shall have no portion in the Hereafter, neither will Allah speak to them,

nor look at them.' (3.77)
Volume 9, Book 93, Number 538:
Narrated Abu Huraira:

The Prophet said, "(There are) three (types of persons to whom) Allah will neither

speak to them on the Day of Resurrections, nor look at them (They are):--(1) a

man who takes a false oath that he has been offered for a commodity a price

greater than what he has actually been offered; (2) and a man who takes a false

oath after the 'Asr (prayer) in order to grab the property of a Muslim through it; (3)

and a man who forbids others to use the remaining superfluous water. To such a

man Allah will say on the Day of Resurrection, 'Today I withhold My Blessings

from you as you withheld the superfluous part of that (water) which your hands did

not create.' "
Volume 9, Book 93, Number 539:
Narrated Abu Bakra:

The Prophet said, "Time has come back to its original state which it had when

Allah created the Heavens and the Earth, the year is twelve months, of which four

are sacred; (and out of these four) three are in succession, namely, Dhul-Qa'da,

Dhul-Hijja and Muharram, and (the fourth one) Rajab Mudar which is between

Jumad (Ath-Tham) and Sha'ban." The Prophet then asked us, "Which month is

this?" We said, "Allah and His Apostle know (it) better." He kept quiet so long that

we thought he might call it by another name. Then he said, "Isn't it Dhul-Hijja?" We

said, "Yes." He asked "What town is this?" We said, "Allah and His Apostle know

(it) better.' Then he kept quiet so long that we thought he might call it by another

name. He then said, "Isn't it the (forbidden) town (Mecca)?" We said, "Yes." He

asked, "What is the day today?" We said, "Allah and His Apostle know (it) better.

Then he kept quiet so long that we thought that he might call it by another name.

Then he said, "Isn't it the Day of An-Nahr (slaughtering of sacrifices)?" We said,

"Yes." Then he said, "Your blood (lives), your properties," (the sub narrator

Muhammad, said: I think he also said): "..and your honor) are as sacred to one

another like the sanctity of this Day of yours, in this town of yours, in this month of

yours.

You shall meet your Lord and He will ask you about your deeds. Beware! Don't

go astray after me by striking the necks of one another. Lo! It is incumbent upon

those who are present to inform it to those who are absent for perhaps the

informed one might comprehend it (understand it) better than some of the present

audience." Whenever the sub-narrator Muhammad mentioned that statement, he

would say, "The Prophet said the truth.") And then the Prophet added, "No doubt!

Haven't I conveyed Allah's Message to you! No doubt! Haven't I conveyed

Allah's Message to you?"
Volume 9, Book 93, Number 540:
Narrated Usama:

A son of one of the daughters of the Prophet was dying, so she sent a person to

call the Prophet. He sent (her a message), "What ever Allah takes is for Him, and

whatever He gives is for Him, and everything has a limited fixed term (in this world)

so she should be patient and hope for Allah's reward." She then sent for him again,

swearing that he should come. Allah's Apostle got up, and so did Mu'adh bin

Jabal, Ubai bin Ka'b and 'Ubada bin As-Samit. When he entered (the house), they

gave the child to Allah's Apostle while its breath was disturbed in his chest. (The

sub-narrator said: I think he said, "...as if it was a water skin.") Allah's Apostle

started weeping whereupon Sa'd bin 'Ubada said, "Do you weep?" The Prophet

said, "Allah is merciful only to those of His slaves who are merciful (to others)."

Volume 9, Book 93, Number 541:
Narrated Abu Huraira:

The Prophet said, "Paradise and Hell (Fire) quarrelled in the presence of their

Lord. Paradise said, 'O Lord! What is wrong with me that only the poor and

humble people enter me ?' Hell (Fire) said, I have been favored with the arrogant

people.' So Allah said to Paradise, 'You are My Mercy,' and said to Hell, 'You are

My Punishment which I inflict upon whom I wish, and I shall fill both of you.'" The

Prophet added, "As for Paradise, (it will be filled with good people) because Allah

does not wrong any of His created things, and He creates for Hell (Fire)

whomever He will, and they will be thrown into it, and it will say thrice, 'Is there

any more, till Allah (will put) His Foot over it and it will become full and its sides

will come close to each other and it will say, 'Qat! Qat! Qat! (Enough! Enough!

Enough!) .

Narrated Anas:

The Prophet said, "Some people who will be scorched by Hell (Fire) as a

'Al-JahannamiyyLin' (the people of Hell)."
Volume 9, Book 93, Number 543:
Narrated 'Abdullah:

A Jewish Rabbi came to Allah's Apostle and said, "O Muhammad! Allah will put

the Heavens on one finger and the earth on one finger, and the trees and the rivers

on one finger, and the rest of the creation on one finger, and then will say, pointing

out with His Hand, 'I am the King.' "On that Allah's Apostle smiled and said, "No

just estimate have they made of Allah such as due to Him. (39.67)

Volume 9, Book 93, Number 544:
Narrated Ibn 'Abbas:

Once I stayed overnight at the house of (my aunt ) Maimuna while the Prophet was

with her, to see how was the night prayer of Allah s Apostle Allah's Apostle talked

to his wife for a while and then slept. When it was the last third of the night (or part

of it), the Prophet got up and looked towards the sky and recited the Verse:--

'Verily! In the creation of the Heavens and the Earth....there are indeed signs for

the men of understanding.' (3.190)

Then He got up and performed the ablution, brushed his teeth and offered eleven

Rakat. Then Bilal pronounced the Adhan whereupon the Prophet offered a

two-Rak'at (Sunna) prayer and went out to lead the people in Fajr (morning

compulsory congregational prayer.

Narrated 'Abdullah bin Mas'ud:

Allah's Apostle the true and truly inspired, narrated to us, "The creation of

everyone of you starts with the process of collecting the material for his body

within forty days and forty nights in the womb of his mother. Then he becomes a

clot of thick blood for a similar period (40 days) and then he becomes like a piece

of flesh for a similar period. Then an angel is sent to him (by Allah) and the angel is

allowed (ordered) to write four things; his livelihood, his (date of) death, his deeds,

and whether he will be a wretched one or a blessed one (in the Hereafter) and then

the soul is breathed into him. So one of you may do (good) deeds characteristic of

the people of Paradise so much that there is nothing except a cubit between him

and Paradise but then what has been written for him decides his behavior and he

starts doing (evil) deeds characteristic of the people of Hell (Fire) and (ultimately)

enters Hell (Fire); and one of you may do (evil) deeds characteristic of the people

of Hell (Fire) so much so that there is nothing except a cubit between him and Hell

(Fire), then what has been written for him decides his behavior and he starts doing

(good) deeds characteristic of the people of Paradise and ultimately) enters

Paradise." (See Hadith No. 430, Vol. 4)

others, "Ask him (the Prophet) about the spirit." Others said, "Do not ask him." But

they asked him and he stood leaning on the stick and I was standing behind him

and I thought that he was being divinely inspired. Then he said, "They ask you

concerning the spirit say: The spirit, its knowledge is with My Lord. And of

knowledge you (O men!) have been given only a little." ...(17.85) On that some of

the Jews said to the others, "Didn't we tell you not to ask?"

The Prophet stood before Musailama (the liar) who was sitting with his

you, and if you turn away from Islam, Allah will surely ruin you! "

Volume 9, Book 93, Number 554:
Narrated Ibn Mas'ud:

While I was walking in company with the Prophet in one of the fields of Medina,

the Prophet was reclining on a palm leave stalk which he carried with him. We

passed by a group of Jews. Some of them said to the others, "Ask him about the

spirit." The others said, "Do not ask him, lest he would say something that you

hate." Some of them said, "We will ask him." So a man from among them stood up

and said, 'O Abal-Qasim! What is the spirit?" The Prophet kept quiet and I knew

that he was being divinely inspired. Then he said: "They ask you concerning the

Narrated Abu Huraira:

Allah's Apostle said, "The example of a believer is that of a fresh green plant the

leaves of which move in whatever direction the wind forces them to move and

when the wind becomes still, it stand straight. Such is the similitude of the believer:

He is disturbed by calamities (but is like the fresh plant he regains his normal state

soon). And the example of a disbeliever is that of a pine tree (which remains) hard

and straight till Allah cuts it down when He will." (See Hadith No. 546 and 547,

Volume 9, Book 93, Number 559:
Narrated 'Abdullah bin 'Umar:

I heard Allah's Apostle while he was standing on the pulpit, saying, "The remaining

period of your stay (on the earth) in comparison to the nations before you, is like

the period between the 'Asr prayer and sunset. The people of the Torah were

given the Torah and they acted upon it till midday, and then they were worn out

and were given for their labor, one Qirat each. Then the people of the Gospel were

given the Gospel and they acted upon it till the time of the 'Asr prayer, and then

they were worn out and were given (for their labor), one Qirat each. Then you

people were given the Quran and you acted upon it till sunset and so you were

given two Qirats each (double the reward of the previous nations)." Then the

people of the Torah said, 'O our Lord! These people have done a little labor

(much less than we) but have taken a greater reward.' Allah said, 'Have I withheld

anything from your reward?' They said, 'No.' Then Allah said, 'That is My Favor

which I bestow on whom I wish.' "
Volume 9, Book 93, Number 560:
Narrated 'Ubada bin As-Samit:

I, along with a group of people, gave the pledge of allegiance to Allah's Apostle.

He said, "I take your Pledge on the condition that you (1) will not join partners in

worship with Allah, (2) will not steal, (3) will not commit illegal sexual intercourse,

(4) will not kill your offspring, (5) will not slander, (6) and will not disobey me

when I order you to do good. Whoever among you will abide by his pledge, his

reward will be with Allah, and whoever commits any of those sins and receives the

punishment in this world, that punishment will be an expiation for his sins and

purification; but if Allah screens him, then it will be up to Allah to punish him if He

will or excuse Him, if He will."

Allah's Prophet Solomon who had sixty wives, once said, "Tonight I will have

sexual relation (sleep) with all my wives so that each of them will become pregnant

and bring forth (a boy who will grow into) a cavalier and will fight in Allah's

Cause." So he slept with his wives and none of them (conceived and) delivered (a

child) except one who brought a half (body) boy (deformed). Allah's Prophet said,

"If Solomon had said; 'If Allah Will,' then each of those women would have

delivered a (would-be) cavalier to fight in Allah's Cause." (See Hadith No. 74 A,

Vol. 4).

Narrated Ibn 'Abbas:

Allah's Apostle entered upon a sick bedouin in whom he went to visit and said to

him, "Don't worry, Tahur (i.e., your illness will be a means of cleansing of your

sins), if Allah Will." The bedouin said, "Tahur! No, but it is a fever that is burning in

the body of an old man and it will make him visit his grave." The Prophet said,

"Then it is so."
Volume 9, Book 93, Number 563:
Narrated Abu Qatada:

When the people slept till so late that they did not offer the (morning) prayer, the

answer the call of nature, performed ablution, till the sun had risen and it had

become white, then the Prophet got up and offered the prayer.

Narrated Abu Huraira:

"A man from the Muslims and a man from the Jews quarrelled, and the Muslim

said, "By Him Who gave superiority to Muhammad over all the people!" The Jew

said, "By Him Who gave superiority to Moses over all the people!' On that the

Muslim lifted his hand and slapped the Jew. The Jew went to Allah's Apostle and

informed him of all that had happened between him and the Muslim. The Prophet

said, "Do not give me superiority over Moses, for the people will fall unconscious

on the Day of Resurrection, I will be the first to regain consciousness and behold,

Moses will be standing there, holding the side of the Throne. I will not know

whether he has been one of those who have fallen unconscious and then regained

consciousness before me, or if he has been one of those exempted by Allah (from

falling unconscious)." (See Hadith No. 524, Vol. 8)

Narrated Abu Huraira:

Allah's Apostle said, "While I was sleeping, I saw myself (in a dream) standing by

a well. I drew from it as much water as Allah wished me to draw, and then Ibn

Quhafa (Abu Bakr) took the bucket from me and drew one or two buckets, and

there was weakness in his drawing----may Allah forgive him! Then 'Umar took the

bucket which turned into something like a big drum. I had never seen a powerful

man among the people working as perfectly and vigorously as he did. (He drew so

much water that) the people drank to their satisfaction and watered their camels

that knelt down there. (See Hadith No. 16, Vol. 5)

Volume 9, Book 93, Number 568:
Narrated Abu Musa:

Whenever a beggar or a person in need of something came to the Prophet , he

used to say (to his companions), "Intercede (for him) and you will be rewarded for

that, and Allah will fulfill what He will through His Apostle's tongue."

Narrated Abu Huraira:

The Prophet said, "None of you should say: 'O Allah! Forgive me if You wish,' or

subsistence if You wish,' but he should be firm in his request, for Allah does what

He will and nobody can force Him (to do anything)."

Narrated Ibn 'Abbas:

That he differed with Al-Hurr bin Qais bin Hisn Al-Fazari about the companion of

Moses, (i.e., whether he was Kha,dir or not). Ubai bin Ka'b Al-Ansari passed by

them and Ibn 'Abbas called him saying, 'My friend (Hur) and I have differed about

Moses' Companion whom Moses asked the way to meet. Did you hear Allah's

Apostle mentioning anything about him?" Ubai said, "Yes, I heard Allah's Apostle

saying, "While Moses was sitting in the company of some Israelites a man came to

him and asked, 'Do you know Someone who is more learned than you (Moses)?'

Moses said, 'No.' So Allah sent the Divine inspiration to Moses:--

'Yes, Our Slave Khadir is more learned than you' Moses asked Allah how to meet

him ( Khadir) So Allah made the fish as a sign for him and it was said to him,

'When you lose the fish, go back (to the place where you lose it) and you will meet

him.' So Moses went on looking for the sign of the fish in the sea. The boy servant

of Moses (who was accompanying him) said to him, 'Do you remember (what

happened) when we betook ourselves to the rock? I did indeed forget to tell you

(about) the fish. None but Satan made me forget to tell you about it' (18.63)

Moses said:

'That is what we have been seeking." Sa they went back retracing their footsteps.

(18.64). So they both found Kadir (there) and then happened what Allah

mentioned about them (in the Quran)!' (See 18.60-82)

day many of them were injured. The Prophet said, "If Allah will, we will return

home tomorrow." It seemed that statement pleased them whereupon Allah's

Apostle smiled.

so and so, O Gabriel love him' So Gabriel would love him and then would make an

came to them they were praying.' "

in You expecting Your reward and fearing Your punishment. There is neither

fleeing from You nor refuge but with You. I believe in the Book (Qur'an) which

You have revealed and in Your Prophet (Muhammad) whom You have sent.' If

Narrated Ibn 'Abbas:

(regarding the Verse):-- 'Neither say your prayer aloud, nor say it in a low tone.'

(17.110) This Verse was revealed while Allah's Apostle was hiding himself in

Mecca, and when he raised his voice while reciting the Qur'an, the pagans would

hear him and abuse the Qur'an and its Revealer and to the one who brought it. So

Allah said:--

'Neither say your prayer aloud, nor say it in a low tone.' (17.110) That is, 'Do not

say your prayer so loudly that the pagans can hear you, nor say it in such a low

tone that your companions do not hear you.' But seek a middle course between

those (extremes), i.e., let your companions hear, but do not relate the Qur'an

loudly, so that they may learn it from you.

as he (the one who observes the fast) leaves his sexual desire, food and drink for

My Sake. Fasting is a screen (from Hell) and there are two pleasures for a fasting

person, one at the time of breaking his fast, and the other at the time when he will

meet his Lord. And the smell of the mouth of a fasting person is better in Allah's

Sight than the smell of musk." (See Hadith No. 128, Vol. 3).

Allah! All the Praises are for You; You are the Light of the Heavens and the Earth.

And all the Praises are for You; You are the Keeper of the Heavens and the Earth.

All the Praises are for You; You are the Lord of the Heavens and the Earth and

whatever is therein. You are the Truth, and Your Promise is the Truth, and Your

Speech is the Truth, and meeting You is the Truth, and Paradise is the Truth and

Hell (Fire) is the Truth and all the prophets are the Truth and the Hour is the Truth.

O Allah! I surrender to You, and believe in You, and depend upon You, and

repent to You, and in Your cause I fight and with Your orders I rule. So please

forgive my past and future sins and those sins which I did in secret or in public. It is

You Whom I worship, None has the right to be worshipped except You ." (See

Prophet, when the slanderers said what they said and Allah revealed her

innocence. 'Aisha said, "But by Allah, I did not think that Allah, (to confirm my

innocence), would reveal Divine Inspiration which would be recited, for I consider

myself too unimportant to be talked about by Allah through Divine Inspiration

revealed for recitation, but I hoped that Allah's Apostle might have a dream in

which Allah would reveal my innocence. So Allah revealed:-- 'Verily! Those who

spread the slander are a gang among you...' (The ten Verses in Surat-an-Nur)

(24.11-20)

Angels) do not write it unless he does it; if he does it, then write it as it is, but if he

refrains from doing it for My Sake, then write it as a good deed (in his account).

(On the other hand) if he intends to go a good deed, but does not do it, then write

a good deed (in his account), and if he does it, then write it for him (in his account)

as ten good deeds up to seven-hundred times.' "

want? It said; "At this place I seek refuge with You from all those who sever me

(i.e. sever the ties of Kinship.)" Allah said: "Would you be pleased that I will keep

good relation with the one who will keep good relation with you, and I will sever

the relation with the one who will sever the relation with you. It said: 'Yes, 'O my

Lord.' Allah said (to it), 'That is for you.'' And then Abu Huraira recited the

Allah's Apostle said, "A man who never did any good deed, said that if he died, his

family should burn him and throw half the ashes of his burnt body in the earth and

the other half in the sea, for by Allah, if Allah should get hold of him, He would

inflict such punishment on him as He would not inflict on anybody among the

people. But Allah ordered the sea to collect what was in it (of his ashes) and

similarly ordered the earth to collect what was in it (of his ashes). Then Allah said

(to the recreated man ), 'Why did you do so?' The man replied, 'For being afraid

of You, and You know it (very well).' So Allah forgave him."

Volume 9, Book 93, Number 598:
Narrated Abu Huraira:

I heard the Prophet saying, "If somebody commits a sin and then says, 'O my

Lord! I have sinned, please forgive me!' and his Lord says, 'My slave has known

that he has a Lord who forgives sins and punishes for it, I therefore have forgiven

my slave (his sins).' Then he remains without committing any sin for a while and

then again commits another sin and says, 'O my Lord, I have committed another

sin, please forgive me,' and Allah says, 'My slave has known that he has a Lord

who forgives sins and punishes for it, I therefore have forgiven my slave (his sin).

Then he remains without Committing any another sin for a while and then commits

another sin (for the third time) and says, 'O my Lord, I have committed another sin,

please forgive me,' and Allah says, 'My slave has known that he has a Lord Who

forgives sins and punishes for it I therefore have forgiven My slave (his sin), he can

do whatever he likes."
Volume 9, Book 93, Number 599:
Narrated Abu Said:

The Prophet mentioned a man from the people of the past or those who preceded

you. The Prophet said a sentence meaning: Allah had given him wealth and

children. When his death approached, he said to his sons, "What kind of father

have I been to you?" They replied, "You have been a good father." He told them

that he had not presented any good deed before Allah, and if Allah should get hold

of him He would punish him.' "So look!" he added, "When I die, burn me, and

when I turn into coal, crush me, and when there comes a windy day, scatter my

ashes in the wind." The Prophet added, "Then by Allah, he took a firm promise

from his children to do so, and they did so. (They burnt him after his death) and

threw his ashes on a windy day. Then Allah commanded to his ashes. "Be," and

behold! He became a man standing! Allah said, "O My slave! What made you do

what you did?" He replied, "For fear of You." Nothing saved him then but Allah's

Mercy (So Allah forgave him).
Volume 9, Book 93, Number 600:
Narrated Anas:

I heard the Prophet saying, "On the Day of Resurrection I will intercede and say,

"O my Lord! Admit into Paradise (even) those who have faith equal to a mustard

seed in their hearts." Such people will enter Paradise, and then I will say, 'O (Allah)

admit into Paradise (even) those who have the least amount of faith in their hearts."

Anas then said: As if I were just now looking at the fingers of Allah's Apostle.

Volume 9, Book 93, Number 601:
Narrated Ma'bad bin Hilal Al'Anzi:

We, i.e., some people from Basra gathered and went to Anas bin Malik, and we

went in company with Thabit Al-Bunnani so that he might ask him about the Hadith

of Intercession on our behalf. Behold, Anas was in his palace, and our arrival

coincided with his Duha prayer. We asked permission to enter and he admitted us

while he was sitting on his bed. We said to Thabit, "Do not ask him about anything

else first but the Hadith of Intercession." He said, "O Abu Hamza! There are your

brethren from Basra coming to ask you about the Hadith of Intercession." Anas

then said, "Muhammad talked to us saying, 'On the Day of Resurrection the people

will surge with each other like waves, and then they will come to Adam and say,

'Please intercede for us with your Lord.' He will say, 'I am not fit for that but you'd

better go to Abraham as he is the Khalil of the Beneficent.' They will go to

Abraham and he will say, 'I am not fit for that, but you'd better go to Moses as he

is the one to whom Allah spoke directly.' So they will go to Moses and he will say,

'I am not fit for that, but you'd better go to Jesus as he is a soul created by Allah

and His Word.' (Be: And it was) they will go to Jesus and he will say, 'I am not fit

for that, but you'd better go to Muhammad.'

They would come to me and I would say, 'I am for that.' Then I will ask for my

Lord's permission, and it will be given, and then He will inspire me to praise Him

with such praises as I do not know now. So I will praise Him with those praises

and will fall down, prostrate before Him. Then it will be said, 'O Muhammad, raise

your head and speak, for you will be listened to; and ask, for your will be granted

(your request); and intercede, for your intercession will be accepted.' I will say, 'O

Lord, my followers! My followers!' And then it will be said, 'Go and take out of

Hell (Fire) all those who have faith in their hearts, equal to the weight of a barley

grain.' I will go and do so and return to praise Him with the same praises, and fall

down (prostrate) before Him. Then it will be said, 'O Muhammad, raise your head

and speak, for you will be listened to, and ask, for you will be granted (your

request); and intercede, for your intercession will be accepted.' I will say, 'O Lord,

my followers! My followers!' It will be said, 'Go and take out of it all those who

have faith in their hearts equal to the weight of a small ant or a mustard seed.' I will

go and do so and return to praise Him with the same praises, and fall down in

prostration before Him. It will be said, 'O, Muhammad, raise your head and speak,

for you will be listened to, and ask, for you will be granted (your request); and

intercede, for your intercession will be accepted.' I will say, 'O Lord, my

followers!' Then He will say, 'Go and take out (all those) in whose hearts there is

faith even to the lightest, lightest mustard seed. (Take them) out of the Fire.' I will

go and do so."'

When we left Anas, I said to some of my companions, "Let's pass by Al-Hasan

who is hiding himself in the house of Abi Khalifa and request him to tell us what

Anas bin Malik has told us." So we went to him and we greeted him and he

admitted us. We said to him, "O Abu Said! We came to you from your brother

Anas Bin Malik and he related to us a Hadith about the intercession the like of

which I have never heard." He said, "What is that?" Then we told him of the Hadith

and said, "He stopped at this point (of the Hadith)." He said, "What then?" We

said, "He did not add anything to that." He said, Anas related the Hadith to me

twenty years ago when he was a young fellow. I don't know whether he forgot or if

he did not like to let you depend on what he might have said." We said, "O Abu

Said ! Let us know that." He smiled and said, "Man was created hasty. I did not

mention that, but that I wanted to inform you of it.

Anas told me the same as he told you and said that the Prophet added, 'I then

return for a fourth time and praise Him similarly and prostrate before Him me the

same as he 'O Muhammad, raise your head and speak, for you will be listened to;

and ask, for you will be granted (your request): and intercede, for your intercession

will be accepted .' I will say, 'O Lord, allow me to intercede for whoever said,

'None has the right to be worshiped except Allah.' Then Allah will say, 'By my

Power, and my Majesty, and by My Supremacy, and by My Greatness, I will take

out of Hell (Fire) whoever said: 'None has the right to be worshipped except

Allah.' ''
Volume 9, Book 93, Number 602:
Narrated 'Abdullah:

Allah's Apostle said, "The person who will be the last one to enter Paradise and

the last to come out of Hell (Fire) will be a man who will come out crawling, and

his Lord will say to him, 'Enter Paradise.' He will reply, 'O Lord, Paradise is full.'

Allah will give him the same order thrice, and each time the man will give Him the

same reply, i.e., 'Paradise is full.' Thereupon Allah will say (to him), 'Ten times of

the world is for you.' "
Volume 9, Book 93, Number 603:
Narrated 'Adi bin Hatim:

Allah's Apostle said, "There will be none among you but his Lord will talk to him,

and there will be no interpreter between him and Allah. He will look to his right and

see nothing but his deeds which he has sent forward, and will look to his left and

see nothing but his deeds which he has sent forward, and will look in front of him

and see nothing but the (Hell) Fire facing him. So save yourself from the (Hell) Fire

even with half a date (given in charity)." Al-A'mash said: 'Amr bin Murra said,

Khaithama narrated the same and added, '..even with a good word.' "

Volume 9, Book 93, Number 604:
Narrated 'Abdullah:

A priest from the Jews came (to the Prophet) and said, "On the Day of

Resurrection, Allah will place all the heavens on one finger, and the Earth on one

finger, and the waters and the land on one finger, and all the creation on one finger,

and then He will shake them and say. 'I am the King! I am the King!'" I saw the

Prophet smiling till his premolar teeth became visible expressing his amazement and

his belief in what he had said. Then the Prophet recited: 'No just estimate have they

made of Allah such as due to Him (up to)...; High is He above the partners they

attribute to Him.' (39.67)
Volume 9, Book 93, Number 605:
Narrated Safwan bin Muhriz:

A man asked Ibn 'Umar, "What have you heard from Allah's Apostle regarding

An-Najwa?" He said, "Everyone of you will come close to His Lord Who will

screen him from the people and say to him, 'Did you do so-and-so?' He will reply,

'Yes.' Then Allah will say, 'Did you do so-and-so?' He will reply, 'Yes.' So Allah

will question him and make him confess, and then Allah will say, 'I screened your

sins in the world and forgive them for you today.' "

Volume 9, Book 93, Number 606:
Narrated Abu Huraira:

The Prophet said, "Adam and Moses debated with each other and Moses said,

'You are Adam who turned out your offspring from Paradise.' Adam said, "You

are Moses whom Allah chose for His Message and for His direct talk, yet you

blame me for a matter which had been ordained for me even before my creation?'

Thus Adam overcame Moses."
Volume 9, Book 93, Number 607:
Narrated Anas:

Allah's Apostle said, "The believers will be assembled on the Day of Resurrection

and they will say, 'Let us look for someone to intercede for us with our Lord so

that He may relieve us from this place of ours.' So they will go to Adam and say,

'You are Adam, the father of mankind, and Allah created you with His Own Hands

and ordered the Angels to prostrate before you, and He taught you the names of

all things; so please intercede for us with our Lord so that He may relieve us.'

Adam will say, to them, 'I am not fit for that,' and then he will mention to them his

mistake which he has committed.' "
Volume 9, Book 93, Number 608:
Narrated Anas bin Malik:

The night Allah's Apostle was taken for a journey from the sacred mosque (of

Mecca) Al-Ka'ba: Three persons came to him (in a dreamy while he was sleeping

in the Sacred Mosque before the Divine Inspiration was revealed to Him. One of

them said, "Which of them is he?" The middle (second) angel said, "He is the best

of them." The last (third) angle said, "Take the best of them." Only that much

happened on that night and he did not see them till they came on another night, i.e.

after The Divine Inspiration was revealed to him. (Fateh-Al-Bari Page 258, Vol.

17) and he saw them, his eyes were asleep but his heart was not----and so is the

case with the prophets: their eyes sleep while their hearts do not sleep. So those

angels did not talk to him till they carried him and placed him beside the well of

Zam-Zam. From among them Gabriel took charge of him. Gabriel cut open (the

part of his body) between his throat and the middle of his chest (heart) and took all

the material out of his chest and abdomen and then washed it with Zam-Zam water

with his own hands till he cleansed the inside of his body, and then a gold tray

containing a gold bowl full of belief and wisdom was brought and then Gabriel

stuffed his chest and throat blood vessels with it and then closed it (the chest). He

then ascended with him to the heaven of the world and knocked on one of its

doors.

The dwellers of the Heaven asked, 'Who is it?' He said, "Gabriel." They said,

"Who is accompanying you?" He said, "Muhammad." They said, "Has he been

called?" He said, "Yes" They said, "He is welcomed." So the dwellers of the

Heaven became pleased with his arrival, and they did not know what Allah would

do to the Prophet on earth unless Allah informed them. The Prophet met Adam

over the nearest Heaven. Gabriel said to the Prophet, "He is your father; greet

him." The Prophet greeted him and Adam returned his greeting and said,

"Welcome, O my Son! O what a good son you are!" Behold, he saw two flowing

rivers, while he was in the nearest sky. He asked, "What are these two rivers, O

Gabriel?" Gabriel said, "These are the sources of the Nile and the Euphrates."

Then Gabriel took him around that Heaven and behold, he saw another river at the

bank of which there was a palace built of pearls and emerald. He put his hand into

the river and found its mud like musk Adhfar. He asked, "What is this, O Gabriel?"

Gabriel said, "This is the Kauthar which your Lord has kept for you." Then Gabriel

ascended (with him) to the second Heaven and the angels asked the same

questions as those on the first Heaven, i.e., "Who is it?" Gabriel replied, "Gabriel".

They asked, "Who is accompanying you?" He said, "Muhammad." They asked,

"Has he been sent for?" He said, "Yes." Then they said, "He is welcomed.'' Then

he (Gabriel) ascended with the Prophet to the third Heaven, and the angels said the

same as the angels of the first and the second Heavens had said.

Then he ascended with him to the fourth Heaven and they said the same; and then

he ascended with him to the fifth Heaven and they said the same; and then he

ascended with him to the sixth Heaven and they said the same; then he ascended

with him to the seventh Heaven and they said the same. On each Heaven there

were prophets whose names he had mentioned and of whom I remember Idris on

the second Heaven, Aaron on the fourth Heavens another prophet whose name I

don't remember, on the fifth Heaven, Abraham on the sixth Heaven, and Moses on

the seventh Heaven because of his privilege of talking to Allah directly. Moses said

(to Allah), "O Lord! I thought that none would be raised up above me."

But Gabriel ascended with him (the Prophet) for a distance above that, the

distance of which only Allah knows, till he reached the Lote Tree (beyond which

none may pass) and then the Irresistible, the Lord of Honor and Majesty

approached and came closer till he (Gabriel) was about two bow lengths or (even)

nearer. (It is said that it was Gabriel who approached and came closer to the

Prophet. (Fate Al-Bari Page 263, 264, Vol. 17). Among the things which Allah

revealed to him then, was: "Fifty prayers were enjoined on his followers in a day

and a night."

Then the Prophet descended till he met Moses, and then Moses stopped him and

asked, "O Muhammad ! What did your Lord en join upon you?" The Prophet

replied," He enjoined upon me to perform fifty prayers in a day and a night."

Moses said, "Your followers cannot do that; Go back so that your Lord may

reduce it for you and for them." So the Prophet turned to Gabriel as if he wanted

to consult him about that issue. Gabriel told him of his opinion, saying, "Yes, if you

wish." So Gabriel ascended with him to the Irresistible and said while he was in his

place, "O Lord, please lighten our burden as my followers cannot do that." So

Allah deducted for him ten prayers where upon he returned to Moses who

stopped him again and kept on sending him back to his Lord till the enjoined

prayers were reduced to only five prayers.

Then Moses stopped him when the prayers had been reduced to five and said, "O

Muhammad! By Allah, I tried to persuade my nation, Bani Israel to do less than

this, but they could not do it and gave it up. However, your followers are weaker

in body, heart, sight and hearing, so return to your Lord so that He may lighten

your burden."

The Prophet turned towards Gabriel for advice and Gabriel did not disapprove of

that. So he ascended with him for the fifth time. The Prophet said, "O Lord, my

followers are weak in their bodies, hearts, hearing and constitution, so lighten our

burden." On that the Irresistible said, "O Muhammad!" the Prophet replied,

"Labbaik and Sa'daik." Allah said, "The Word that comes from Me does not

change, so it will be as I enjoined on you in the Mother of the Book." Allah added,

"Every good deed will be rewarded as ten times so it is fifty (prayers) in the

Mother of the Book (in reward) but you are to perform only five (in practice)."

The Prophet returned to Moses who asked, "What have you done?" He said, "He

has lightened our burden: He has given us for every good deed a tenfold reward."

Moses said, "By Allah! I tried to make Bani Israel observe less than that, but they

gave it up. So go back to your Lord that He may lighten your burden further."

Allah's Apostle said, "O Moses! By Allah, I feel shy of returning too many times to

my Lord." On that Gabriel said, "Descend in Allah's Name." The Prophet then

woke while he was in the Sacred Mosque (at Mecca).

Paradise!" They will say, 'Labbaik, O our Lord, and Sa'daik, and all the good is in

Your Hands!' Allah will say, "Are you satisfied?' They will say, 'Why shouldn't we

be satisfied, O our Lord as You have given us what You have not given to any of

Your created beings?' He will say, 'Shall I not give you something better than that?'

They will say, 'O our Lord! What else could be better than that?' He will say, 'I

bestow My Pleasure on you and will never be angry with you after that.' "

will reply, 'yes, but I like to cultivate the land (Allah will permit him and) he will

sow the seeds, and within seconds the plants will grow and ripen and (the yield)

will be harvested and piled in heaps like mountains. On that Allah will say (to him),

"Take, here you are, O son of Adam, for nothing satisfies you.' "On that the

bedouin said, "O Allah's Apostle! Such man must be either from Quraish or from

Ansar, for they are farmers while we are not." On that Allah's Apostle smiled .

Volume 9, Book 93, Number 611:

I asked Allah's Apostle "What is the biggest sin in the sight of Allah?" He said, "To

set up rivals unto Allah though He alone created you." I said, "In fact, that is a

tremendous sin," and added, "What next?" He said, "To kill your son being afraid

that he may share your food with you." I further asked, "What next?" He said, "To

commit illegal sexual intercourse with the wife of your neighbor."

Ka'ba. One of them said, "Did you see that Allah hears what we say? " The other

said, "He hears us if we speak aloud, but He does not hear if we speak in stealthy

quietness (softly)." The third fellow said, "If He hears when we speak aloud, then

He surely hears us if we speak in stealthy quietness (softly)." So Allah revealed the

Verse:--

'And you have not been screening against yourselves, lest your ears, and your eyes

and your skins should testify against you..." (41.22)

revealed by Allah, and you read it in its pure undistorted form?"

Volume 9, Book 93, Number 614:
Narrated 'Ubaidullah bin 'Abdullah:

'Abdullah bin 'Abbas said, "O the group of Muslims! How can you ask the people

of the Scriptures about anything while your Book which Allah has revealed to your

Prophet contains the most recent news from Allah and is pure and not distorted?

Allah has told you that the people of the Scriptures have changed some of Allah's

Books and distorted it and wrote something with their own hands and said, 'This is

from Allah, so as to have a minor gain for it. Won't the knowledge that has come

to you stop you from asking them? No, by Allah, we have never seen a man from

them asking you about that (the Book Al-Qur'an ) which has been revealed to you.

Narrated Musa bin Abi 'Aisha:

Sa'id bin Jubair reported from Ibn 'Abbas (regarding the explanation of the Verse:

'Do not move your tongue concerning (the Qur'an) to make haste therewith) . He

said, "The Prophet used to undergo great difficulty in receiving the Divine

Inspiration and used to move his lips.' Ibn 'Abbas said (to Sa'id), "I move them

(my lips) as Allah's Apostle used to move his lips." And Said said (to me), "I move

my lips as I saw Ibn 'Abbas moving his lips," and then he moved his lips. So Allah

revealed:--

'(O Muhammad!) Do not move your tongue concerning (the Qur'an) to make haste

therewith. It is for Us to collect it and give you (O Muhammad) the ability to recite

it. (i.e., to collect it in your chest and then you recite it).' (75.16-17) But when We

have recited it, to you (O Muhammad through Gabriel) then follow you its recital.'

(75.18) This means, "You should listen to it and keep quiet and then it is upon Us

to make you recite it."

The narrator added, "So Allah's Apostle used to listen whenever Gabriel came to

him, and when Gabriel left, the Prophet would recite the Qur'an as Gabriel had

recited it to him."
Volume 9, Book 93, Number 616:
Narrated Ibn 'Abbas:

regarding the explanation of the Verse:-- '(O Muhammad!) Neither say your

prayer aloud, nor say it in a low tone.' (17.110) This Verse was revealed while

Allah's Apostle was hiding himself at Mecca. At that time, when he led his

companions in prayer, he used to raise his voice while reciting the Qur'an; and if

the pagans heard him, they would abuse the Qur'an, its Revealer, and the one who

brought it. So Allah said to His Prophet: "Neither say your prayer aloud. i.e., your

recitation (of Qur'an) lest the pagans should hear (it) and abuse the Quran" nor say

it in a low tone, "lest your voice should fail to reach your companions, "but follow a

way between." (17.110)

man whom Allah has given the Qur'an and he recites it during the hours of the night

and the hours of the day, in which case one may say, "If I were given the same as

this man has been given, I would do the same as he is doing.' The other is a man

whom Allah has given wealth and he spends it in the right way, in which case one

may say, 'If I were given the same as he has been given, I would do the same as he

is doing."

the hours of the day."

then you have not conveyed His Message.' (5.67)

food with you.'' The man said, "What is next?" The Prophet said, "To commit

illegal sexual intercourse with the wife of your neighbor." Then Allah revealed in

such life as Allah has made sacred except for just cause, nor commit illegal sexual

intercourse and whoever does this shall receive the punishment..... (25.68)

Narrated Ibn 'Umar:

Allah's Apostle said, "Your stay (in this world) in comparison to the stay of the

nations preceding you, is like the period between 'Asr prayer and the sun set (in

comparison to a whole day). The people of the Torah were given the Torah and

they acted on it till midday and then they were unable to carry on. And they were

given (a reward equal to) one Qirat each. Then the people of the Gospel were

given the Gospel and they acted on it till 'Asr Prayer and then they were unable to

carry on, so they were given la reward equal to) one Qirat each. Then you were

given the Qur'an and you acted on it till sunset, therefore you were given (a reward

equal to) two Qirats each. On that, the people of the Scriptures said, 'These

people (Muslims) did less work than we but they took a bigger reward.' Allah said

(to them). 'Have I done any oppression to you as regards your rights?' They said,

"No." Then Allah said, 'That is My Blessing which I grant to whomsoever I will.' "

Cause."

some people and withheld it from some others. Then he came to know that they

(the latter) were dissatisfied. So the Prophet said, 'I give to one man and leave (do

not give) another, and the one to whom I do not give is dearer to me than the one

to whom I give. I give to some people because of the impatience and discontent

present in their hearts, and leave other people because of the content and

goodness Allah has bestowed on them, and one of them is 'Amr bin Taghlib." 'Amr

bin Taghlib said, "The sentence which Allah's Apostle said in my favor is dearer to

me than the possession of nice red camels."

and pleasant voice. Then Mu'awiya recited as 'Abdullah bin Mughaffal had done

and said, "Were I not afraid that the people would crowd around me, I would

and asked a one-eyed man to recite. He went on reciting till he reached a portion

on which he put his hand. The Prophet said, "Lift up your hand!" He lifted his hand

up and behold, there appeared the verse of Ar-Rajm (stoning of the adulterers to

death). Then he said, "O Muhammad! They should be stoned to death but we

conceal this Divine Law among ourselves." Then the Prophet ordered that the two

round his neck (and pulled him) and said, "Who has taught you this Sura which I

him, a man from the tribe of Bani Taimul-lah who looked like one of the Mawali.

Abu Musa invited the man to eat but the man said, "I have seen chicken eating

some dirty things, and I have taken an oath not to eat chicken." Abu Musa said to

him, "Come along, let me tell you something in this regard. Once I went to the

Prophet with a few men from Ash'ariyyin and we asked him for mounts. The

Prophet said, By Allah, I will not mount you on anything; besides I do not have

anything to mount you on.' Then a few camels from the war booty were brought to

the Prophet, and he asked about us, saying, 'Where are the group of Ash'ariyyin?'

So he ordered for five fat camels to be given to us and then we set out. We said,

'What have we done? Allah's Apostle took an oath that he would not give us

anything to ride and that he had nothing for us to ride, yet he provided us with

mounts. We made Allah's Apostle forget his oath! By Allah, we will never be

successful.' So we returned to him and reminded him of his oath. He said, 'I have

not provided you with the mount, but Allah has done so. By Allah, I may take an

oath to do something, but on finding something else which is better, I do that which

is better and make the expiation for my oath.' "

deeds) by which we may enter Paradise (by acting on them) and we may inform

our people whom we have left behind to observe it." The Prophet said, "I order

you to do four things and forbid you from four things: I order you to believe in

Allah. Do you know what is meant by belief in Allah? It is to testify that none has

the right to be worshipped except Allah, to offer prayers perfectly, to give Zakat,

and to give Al-Khumus (one-fifth of the war booty) (in Allah's Cause). And I

forbid you four things, (i.e., Do not drink alcoholic drinks) Ad-Dubba, An-Naqir,
