Book Forty Eight – The Book on Witnesses


Hadith Number 805.

Narrated by Urwa bin Al-Musayyab, Alqama bin Waqqas and Ubaidullah bin Abdullah : About the story of 'Aisha (Radhi Allahu Anha) and their narrations were similar attesting each other, when the liars said what they invented about 'Aisha (Radhi Allahu Anha), and the Divine Inspiration was delayed, Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) sent for 'Ali and Usama (Radhi Allahu Anhuma) to consult them in divorcing his wife (i.e. 'Aisha (Radhi Allahu Anha)). Usama said, "Keep your wife, as we know nothing about her except good." Buraira said, "I cannot accuse her of any defect except that she is still a young girl who sleeps, neglecting her family's dough which the domestic goats come to eat (i.e. she was too simpleminded to deceive her husband)." Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "Who can help me to take revenge over the man who has harmed me by defaming the reputation of my family? By Allah, I have not known about my family-anything except good, and they mentioned (i.e. accused) a man about whom I did not know anything except good."


Hadith Number 806.

Narrated by Abdullah bin Umar (Radhi Allahu Anhuma): Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) and Ubai bin Kab Al-Ansari went to the garden where Ibn Saiyad used to live. When Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) entered (the garden), he (i.e. Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam)) started hiding himself behind the date-palms as he wanted to hear secretly the talk of Ibn Saiyad before the latter saw him. Ibn Saiyad wrapped with a soft decorated sheet was lying on his bed murmuring. Ibn Saiyad's mother saw the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) hiding behind the stems of the date-palms. She addressed Ibn Saiyad saying, "O Saf, this is Muhammad." Hearing that Ibn Saiyad stopped murmuring (or got cautious), the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "If she had left him undisturbed, he would have revealed his reality." (See Hadith No. 290, Book 52 for details)


Hadith Number 807.

Narrated by 'Aisha (Radhi Allahu Anha): The wife of Rifa'a Al-Qurazi came to the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) and said, "I was Rifa'a's wife, but he divorced me and it was a final irrevocable divorce. Then I married AbdurRahman bin Az-Zubair but he is impotent." The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) asked her: 'Do you want to remarry Rifa'a? You cannot unless you had a complete sexual relation with your present husband." Abu Bakr was sitting with Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) and Khalid bin Said bin Al-'As was at the door waiting to be admitted. He said, "O Abu Bakr! Do you hear what this (woman) is revealing frankly before the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam)?"

As Salamu Alaikum


Hadith Number 808.

Narrated by Abdullah bin Abu Mulaika from 'Uqba bin Al-Harith: Uqba married the daughter of Abu Ihab bin Aziz, and then a woman came and said, "I suckled 'Uqba and his wife." 'Uqba said to her, "I do not know that you have suckled me, and you did not inform me." He then sent someone to the house of Abu Ihab to enquire about that but they did not know that she had suckled their daughter. Then 'Uqba went to the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) in Al-Madinah and asked him about it. The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said to him, "How (can you keep your wife) after it has been said (that both of you were suckled by the same woman)?" So, he divorced her and she was married to another (husband).


Hadith Number 809.

Narrated by 'Umar bin Al-Khattab (Radhi Allahu Anhu): People were (sometimes) judged by the revealing of a Divine Inspiration during the lifetime of Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) but now there is no longer any more (new revelation). Now we judge you by the deeds you practice publicly, so we will trust and favour the one who does good deeds in front of us, and we will not call him to account about what he is really doing in secret, for Allah will judge him for that; but we will not trust or believe the one who presents to us with an evil deed even if he claims that his intentions were good.


Hadith Number 810.

Narrated by Anas (Radhi Allahu Anhu): A funeral procession passed in front of the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) and the people praised the deceased. The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "It has been affirmed (Paradise)." Then another funeral procession passed by and the people talked badly of the deceased. The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "It has been affirmed (Hell)." Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) was asked, "O Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam)! You said it has been affirmed for both?" The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "The testimony of the people (is accepted), (for) the believer are Allah's witnesses on the earth."

As Salamu Alaikum



Hadith Number 811.

Narrated by Abu Al-Aswad: Once I went to Al-Madinah where there was an outbreak of disease and the people were dying rapidly. I was sitting with 'Umar (Radhi Allahu Anhu) and a funeral procession passed by. The people praised the deceased. 'Umar said, "It has been affirmed" (Paradise). Then another funeral procession passed by. The people praised the deceased. 'Umar said, "It has been affirmed." (Paradise). Then another funeral procession passed by. The people praised the deceased. 'Umar said, "It has been affirmed (Paradise)." Then a third funeral procession passed by and the people talked badly of the deceased. 'Umar said, "It has been affirmed (Hell)." I asked Umar, "O chief of the believers! What has been affirmed?" He said, "I have said what the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said. He said, 'Allah will admit into paradise any Muslim whose good character is attested by four persons.' We asked the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam), 'If there were three witnesses only?' He said, 'Even three.' We asked, 'If there were two only?' He said, 'Even two.' But we did not ask him about one witness."


Hadith Number 812.

Narrated by 'Aisha (Radhi Allahu Anha): Aflah asked the permission to visit me but I did not allow him. He said, "Do you veil yourself before me although I am your uncle?" 'Aisha (Radhi Allahu Anha) said, "How is that?" Aflah replied, "You were suckled by my brother's wife with my brother's milk." I asked Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) about it, and he said, "Aflah is right, so permit him to visit you."


Hadith Number 813.

Narrated by Ibn 'Abbas (Radhi Allahu Anhuma): The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said about Hamza's (Radhi Allahu Anhu) daughter, "I am not legally permitted to marry her, as foster relations are treated like blood relations (in marital affairs). She is the daughter of my foster brother."


Hadith Number 814.

Narrated by Amra bint 'Abdur-Rahman: That 'Aisha (Radhi Allahu Anha) the wife of the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) told her uncle that once, while the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) was in her house, she heard a man asking Hafsa's permission to enter her house. 'Aisha (Radhi Allahu Anha) said, "I said, 'O Allah's Messenger! I think the man is Hafsa's foster uncle.' " 'Aisha (Radhi Allahu Anha) added, "O Allah's Messenger! There is a man asking the permission to enter your house." Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) replied, "I think the man is Hafsa's foster uncle." 'Aisha (Radhi Allahu Anha) said, "If so-and-so were living (i.e. her foster uncle) would he be allowed to visit me?" Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "Yes, he would, as the foster relations are treated like blood relations (in marital affairs)."

As Salamu Alaikum


Hadith Number 815.

Narrated by 'Aisha (Radhi Allahu Anha): Once the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) came to me while a man was in my house. He said, "O 'Aisha! Who is this (man)?" I replied, "My foster brothers" He said, "O 'Aisha (Radhi Allahu Anha)! Be sure about your foster brothers, as foster-ship is only valid if it takes place in the suckling period (before two years of age)."


Hadith Number 816.

Narrated by 'Urwa bin Az-Zubair (Radhi Allahu Anhu): A woman committed theft in the Ghazwa of the Conquest (of Makkah) and she was taken to the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) who ordered her hand to be cut off. 'Aisha (Radhi Allahu Anha) said, "Her repentance was perfect and she was married (later) and used to come to me (after that) and I would present her needs to Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam)."


Hadith Number 817.

Narrated by Zaid bin Khalid (Radhi Allahu Anhu): Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) ordered that an unmarried man who committed illegal sexual intercourse be scourged one hundred lashes and sent into exile for one year.


Hadith Number 818.

Narrated by An-Nu'man bin Bashir: My mother asked my father to present me a gift from his property; and he gave it to me after some hesitation. My mother said that she would not be satisfied unless the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) was made a witness to it. I being a young boy, my father held me by the hand and took me to the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam). He said to the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam), "His mother, bint Rawaha, requested me to give this boy a gift." The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "Do you have other sons besides him?" He said, "No." The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "Do not make me a witness for injustice." Narrated Ash-Shabi that the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "I will not become a witness for injustice."

As Salamu Alaikum


Hadith Number 819.

Narrated by Zahdam bin Mudrab: I heard Imran bin Husain saying, "The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, 'The best people are those living in my generation, then those coming after them, and then those coming after (the second generation)." Imran said "I do not know whether the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) mentioned two or three generations after your present generation. The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) added, 'There will be some people after you, who will be dishonest and will not be trustworthy and will give witness (evidences) without being asked to give witness, and will vow but will not fulfil their vows, and fatness will appear among them."


Hadith Number 820.

Narrated by Abdullah (Radhi Allahu Anhu): The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "The people of my generation are the best, then those who follow them, and then whose who follow the latter. After that there will come some people whose witness will go ahead of their oaths, and their oaths will go ahead of their witness." Ibrahim (a sub-narrator) said, "We used to be beaten for taking oaths by saying, 'I bear witness by the Name of Allah or by the Covenant of Allah." (*)


* Ibrahim means that when they were still boys, their elders would beat them if they took oaths, so that they would not get accustomed to taking oaths on all occasions even needlessly. (Fath-al-Bari V6. P189)



Hadith Number 821.

Narrated by Anas (Radhi Allahu Anhu): The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) was asked about the great sins He said, "They are:

1. To join others in worship with Allah.
2. To be undutiful to one's parents.
3. To kill a person (which Allah has forbidden to kill) (i.e. to commit the crime of murdering).
4. And to give a false witness."

As Salamu Alaikum

Hadith Number 822.

Narrated by Abu Bakra (Radhi Allahu Anhu): The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said thrice, "Should I inform you out the greatest of the great sins?" They said, "Yes, O Allah's Messenger!" He said, "To join others in worship with Allah and to be undutiful to one's parents." The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) then sat up after he had been reclining (on a pillow) and said, "And I warn you against giving a false witness, and he kept on saying that warning till we thought he would not stop. (See Hadith No. 7, Book 73)


Hadith Number 823.

Narrated by 'Aisha (Radhi Allahu Anha): The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) heard a man (reciting Qur'an) in the Masjid, and he said, "May Allah bestow His Mercy upon him. No doubt, he made me remember such-and such Verses of such-and-such Surah which I dropped (from my memory).

Narrated 'Aisha (Radhi Allahu Anha): The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) performed the Tahajjud prayer in my house, and then he heard the voice of 'Abbad who was praying in the Masjid, and said, "O 'Aisha! Is this 'Abbad's voice?" I said, "Yes." He said, "O Allah! Be merciful to 'Abbad!"


Hadith Number 824.

Narrated by Abdullah bin Umar (Radhi Allahu Anhuma): The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "Bilal pronounces the Adhan when it is still night (before dawn), so eat and drink till the next Adhan is pronounced (or till you hear Ibn Um Maktum's Adhan)." Ibn Um Maktum was a blind man who would not pronounce the Adhan till he was told that it was dawn.


Hadith Number 825.

Narrated by Al-Miswar bin Makhrama (Radhi Allahu Anhu): Some outer garments were received the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) and my father (Makhrama) said to me, "Let us go to the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) so that he may give us something from the garments." So, my father stood at the door and spoke. The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) recognized his voice and came out carrying a garment and telling Makhrama the good qualities of that garment, adding, "I have kept this for you, I have sent this for you."


Hadith Number 826.

Narrated by Abu Said Al-Khudri (Radhi Allahu Anhu): The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "Isn't the witness of a woman equal to half of that of a man?" The women said, "Yes." He said, "This is because of the deficiency of a woman's mind."

Narrated by Uqba bin Al-Harith (Radhi Allahu Anhu): That he had married Um Yahya bint Abu Ihab. He said. "A black slave-lady came and said, 'I suckled you both.'

As Salamu Alaikum


Hadith Number 829.

Narrated by 'Aisha (Radhi Allahu Anha): (The wife of the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam)) "Whenever Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) intended to go on a journey, he would draw lots amongst his wives and would take with him the one upon whom the lot fell. During a Ghazwa of his, he drew lots amongst us and the lot fell upon me, and I proceeded with him after Allah had decreed the use of the veil by women. I was carried in a Howdah (on the camel) and dismounted while still in it. When Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) was through with his Ghazwa and returned home, and we approached the city of Al-Madinah, Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) ordered us to proceed at night. When the order of setting off was given, I walked till I was past the army to answer the call of nature. After finishing I returned (to the camp) to depart (with the others) and suddenly realized that my necklace over my chest was missing. So, I returned to look for it and was delayed because of that. The people who used to carry me on the camel, came to my Howdah and put it on the back of the camel, thinking that I was in it, as, at that time, women were light in weight, and thin and lean, and did not use to eat much. So, those people did not feel the difference in the heaviness of the Howdah while lifting it, and they put it over the camel. At that time I was a young lady. (*) They set the camel moving and proceeded on. I found my necklace after the army had gone, and came to their camp to find nobody. So, I went to the place where I used to stay, thinking that they would discover my absence and come back in my search. While in that state, I felt sleepy and slept.

Safwan bin Mu'attal As-Sulami Adh-Dhakwani was behind the army and reached my abode in the morning. When he saw a sleeping person, he came to me, and he used to see me before veiling. So, I got up when I heard him saying, "Inna lil-lah-wa inn a ilaihi rajiun (We are for Allah, and we will return to Him)." He made his camel knell down. He got down from his camel, and put his leg on the front legs of the camel and then I rode and sat over it. Safwan set out walking, leading the camel by the rope till we reached the army who had halted to take rest at midday. Then whoever was meant for destruction, fell into destruction, (some people accused me falsely) and the leader of the false accusers was 'Abdullah bin Ubai bin Salul. After that we returned to Al-Madinah, and I became ill for one month while the people were spreading the forged statements of the false accusers. I was feeling during my ailment as if I were not receiving the usual kindness from the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) which I used to receive from him when I got sick. But he would come, greet and say, 'How is that (girl)?' I did not know anything of what was going on till I recovered from my ailment and went out with Um Mistah to the Manasi where we used to answer the call of nature, and we used not to go to answer the call of nature except from night to night and that was before we had lavatories near to our houses. And this habit of ours was similar to the habit of the old 'Arabs in the open country (or away from houses). So. I and Um Mistah bint Ruhm went out walking. Um Mistah stumbled because of her long dress and on that she said, 'Let Mistah be ruined.' I said, 'You are saying a bad word. Why are you abusing a man who took part in (the battle of) Badr?' She said, 'O Hanata (you there) didn't you hear what they said?' Then she told me the rumours of the false accusers.

My sickness was aggravated, and when I returned home, Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) came to me, and after greeting he said, 'How is that (girl)?' I requested him to allow me to go to my parents. I wanted then to be sure of the news through them I Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) allowed me, and I went to my parents and asked my mother, 'What are the people talking about?' She said, 'O my daughter! Don't worry much about this matter. By Allah, never is there a charming woman loved by her husband who has other wives, but the women would forge false news about her.' I said, 'Glorified be Allah! Are the people really taking of this matter?' That night I kept on weeping and could not sleep till morning. In the morning Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) called Ali bin Abu Talib and Usama bin Zaid (Radhi Allahu Anhuma) when he saw the Divine Inspiration delayed, to consul them about divorcing his wife (i.e. 'Aisha (Radhi Allahu Anha)). Usama bin Zaid (Radhi Allahu Anhu) said what he knew of the good reputation of his wives and added, 'O Allah's Messenger! Keep you wife, for, by Allah, we know nothing about her but good.' 'Ali bin Abu Talib (Radhi Allahu Anhu) said, 'O Allah's Messenger! Allah has no imposed restrictions on you, and there are many women other than she, yet you may ask the woman-servant who will tell you the truth.' On that Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) called Buraira and said, 'O Burair. Did you ever see anything which roused your suspicions about her?' Buraira said, 'No, by Allah Who has sent you with the Truth, I have never seen in her anything faulty except that she is a girl of immature age, who sometimes sleeps and leaves the dough for the goats to eat.' On that day Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) ascended the pulpit and requested that somebody support him in punishing 'Abdullah bin Ubai bin Salul. Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, 'Who will support me to punish that person ('Abdullah bin Ubai bin Salul) who has hurt me by slandering the reputation of my family? By Allah, I know nothing about my family but good, and they have accused a person about whom I know nothing except good, and he never entered my house except in my company.'

Sad bin Mu'adh got up and said, 'O Allah's Messenger! By Allah, I will relieve you from him. If that man is from the tribe of the Aus, then we will chop his head off, and if he is from our brothers, the Khazraj, then order us, and we will fulfil your order.' On that Sad bin 'Ubada, the chief of the Khazraj and before this incident, he had been a pious man, got up, motivated by his zeal for his tribe and said, 'By Allah, you have told a lie; you cannot kill him, and you will never be able to kill him.' On that Usaid bin Al-Hadir got up and said (to Sad bin 'Ubada), 'By Allah! you are a liar. By Allah, we will kill him; and you are a hypocrite, defending the hypocrites.' On this the two tribes of Aus and Khazraj got excited and were about to fight each other, while Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) was standing on the pulpit. He got down and quietened them till they became silent and he kept quiet. On that day I kept on weeping so much so that neither did my tears stop, nor could I sleep.

In the morning my parents were with me and I had wept for two nights and a day, till I thought my liver would burst from weeping. While they were sitting with me and I was weeping, an Ansari woman asked my permission to enter, and I allowed her to come in. She sat down and started weeping with me. While we were in this state, Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) came and sat down and he had never sat with me since the day they forged the accusation. No revelation regarding my case came to him for a month. He recited Tashahhud (i.e. None has the right to be worshipped but Allah and Muhammad is His Messenger) and then said, 'O 'Aisha! I have been informed such-and-such about you; if you are innocent, then Allah will soon reveal your innocence, and if you have committed a sin, then repent to Allah and ask Him to forgive you, for when a person confesses his sin and asks Allah for forgiveness, Allah accepts his repentance.' When Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) finished his speech my tears ceased completely and there remained not even a single drop of it. I requested my father to reply to Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) on my behalf. My father said, By Allah, I do not know what to say to Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam).' I said to my mother, 'Talk to Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) on my behalf.' She said, 'By Allah, I do not know what to say to Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam).

I was a young girl and did not have much knowledge of the Qur'an. I said. 'I know, by Allah, that you have listened to what people are saying and that has been planted in your minds and you have taken it as a truth. Now, if I told you that I am innocent and Allah knows that I am innocent, you would not believe me and if I confessed to you falsely that I am guilty, and Allah knows that I am innocent you would believe me. By Allah, I don't compare my situation with you except to the situation of Yusuf’s father (i.e. Yacoub) who said, 'So (for me) patience is most fitting against that which you assert and it is Allah (Alone) whose help can be sought.' Then I turned to the other side of my bed hoping that Allah would prove my innocence. By Allah I never thought that Allah would reveal Divine Inspiration in my case, as I considered myself too inferior to be talked of in the Qur'an. I had hoped that Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) might have a dream in which Allah would prove my innocence. By Allah, Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) had not got up and nobody had left the house before the Divine Inspiration came to Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam). So, there overtook him the same state which used to overtake him, (when he used to have, on being inspired divinely). He was sweating so much so that the drops of the sweat were dropping like pearls though it was a (cold) wintry day. When that state of Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) was over, he was smiling and the first word he said, 'Aisha! Thank Allah, for Allah has declared your innocence.' My mother told me to go to Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam). I replied, 'By Allah I will not go to him and will not thank but Allah.' So Allah revealed: "Verily! They who spread the slander are a gang among you..." (Surah An-Nur 24:11)

When Allah gave the declaration of my innocence, Abu Bakr (Radhi Allahu Anhu), who used to provide for Mistah bin Uthatha for he was his relative, said, 'By Allah, I will never provide Mistah with anything because of what he said about 'Aisha (Radhi Allahu Anha).' But Allah later revealed:

"And let not those who are good and wealthy among you swear not to help their kinsmen, those in need and those who left their homes in Allah's Cause. Let them forgive and overlook. Do you not wish that Allah should forgive you? Verily! Allah is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful." (Surah An-Nur 24:22) After that Abu Bakr (Radhi Allahu Anhu) said, 'Yes ! By Allah! I like that Allah should forgive me,' and resumed helping Mistah whom he used to help before.

Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) also asked Zainab bint Jahsh (Radhi Allahu Anha) (i.e. the Prophet’s (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) wife about me saying, 'What do you know and what did you see?' She replied, 'O Allah's Messenger! I refrain to claim hearing or seeing what I have not heard or seen. By Allah, I know nothing except goodness about 'Aisha." 'Aisha (Radhi Allahu Anha) further added "Zainab was competing with me (in her beauty and the Prophet’s (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) love), yet Allah protected her (from being malicious), for she had piety."

As Salamu Alaikum


Hadith Number 834.

Narrated by Abdullah (Radhi Allahu Anhu): Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "If somebody takes a false oath in order to get the property of a Muslim (unjustly) by that oath, then Allah will be angry with him when he will meet Him." Al-Ash'ath informed me, "By Allah! This was said regarding me. There was a dispute about a piece of land between me and a man from the Jews who denied my right. I took him to the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam). Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) asked me, 'Do you have an evidence?' I replied in the negative. He said to the Jew, 'Take an oath.' I said, 'O Allah's Messenger! He will surely take an oath and take my property unjustly." So, Allah revealed: "Verily! Those who purchase a little gain at the cost of Allah's covenant and their oaths..." (Surah Aal-‘Imran 3:77)


Hadith Number 835.

Narrated by Ibn Abu Mulaika: Ibn 'Abbas (Radhi Allahu Anhu) wrote that the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) gave his verdict on the basis of the defendant's oath.


Hadith Number 836.

Narrated by Abu Wail: Abdullah (bin Mas'ud) (Radhi Allahu Anhu) said, "Whoever takes a (false) oath in order to grab some property (unjustly), Allah will be angry with him when he will meet Him. Allah confirmed that through His Divine Revelation: "Verily! Those who purchase a little gain at the cost of Allah's covenant and their oaths... they will have a painful punishment." (Surah Aal-‘Imran 3:.77)

Al-Ash'ath bin Qais came to us and asked, 'What is Abu Abdur-Rahman (i.e. 'Abdullah) telling you? 'We told him what he was narrating to us. He said, 'He was telling the truth; this Divine Verse was revealed in connection with me. There was a dispute between me and another man about something and the case was filed before Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) who said, 'Produce your two witnesses or else the defendant is to take an oath.' I said, The defendant will surely take a (false) oath caring for nothing.' The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, 'Whoever takes a false oath in order to grab (other's) property, then Allah will be angry with him when he will meet Him.' Then Allah revealed its confirmation. Al-Ashath then recited the above Divine Verse." (3.77)


Hadith Number 837.

Narrated by Ibn Abbas (Radhi Allahu Anhu): Hilal bin Umaiya accused his wife before the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) of committing illegal sexual intercourse with Sharik bin Sahma.' The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "Produce a proof, or else you would get the legal punishment (by being lashed) on your back." Hilal said, "O Allah's Messenger! If anyone of us saw another man over his wife, would he go to search for a proof." The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) went on saying, "Produce a proof or else you would get the legal punishment (by being lashed) on your back." The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) then mentioned the narration of Li’an (*) (as in the Qur'an ). (Surah An-Nur 24: 6-7)


* Literally Li’an means curing, legally it means an oath by which a husband claims that his wife has committed illegal sexual intercourse. The wife in her turn denies the accusation and takes a similar oath. In both oaths Allah is invoked to curse the liar. The case ends with divorce but no punishment is imposed on any of the two because there are not witnesses to confirm the accusation.

1. A man possessed superfluous water on a way and he withheld it from the travellers.

The man asked, "Is there any more compulsory prayers for me?" Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "No, unless you like to offer Nawafil (i.e. optional prayers)." Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) then added, "You have to observe fasts during the month of Ramadan." The man said, "Am I to fast any other days?' Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "No, unless you wish to observe the optional fast voluntarily." Then Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) told him about the compulsory Zakat. The man asked, "Do I have to give anything besides?" Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "No, unless you wish to give in charity voluntarily." So, the man departed saying, "By Allah I will neither do more nor less than that."

Hadith Number 847.

Narrated by Abu Hurairah (Radhi Allahu Anhu): Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "The signs of a hypocrite are three:

Jabir added, "I said (to Abu Bakr), Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) promised me that he would give me this much, and this much, and this much (spreading his hands three times)." Jabir added, "Abu Bakr counted for me and handed me five-hundred (gold pieces), and then five-hundred, and then five-hundred."


Hadith Number 849.

Narrated by Said bin Jubair: A Jew from Hira asked me which one of the two periods Musa (i.e. Prophet Musa’s) completed. I said, "I don't know, (but wait) till I see the most learned 'Arab and enquire him about it." So, I went to Ibn 'Abbas (Radhi Allahu Anhuma) and asked him. He replied, "Musa completed the longer and better period." Ibn 'Abbas (Radhi Allahu Anhuma) added, "No doubt, a Messenger of Allah always does what he says."


Hadith Number 850.

Narrated by Ubaidullah bin Abdullah bin Utba: Ibn Abbas (Radhi Allahu Anhuma) said, "O Muslims? How do you ask the people of the Scriptures, though your Book (i.e. the Qur'an) which was revealed to His Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) is the most recent information from Allah and you recite it, the Book that has not been distorted? Allah has revealed to you that the people of the scriptures have changed with their own hands what was revealed to them and they have said (as regards their changed Scriptures): This is from Allah, in order to get some worldly benefit thereby." Ibn Abbas added: "Isn't the knowledge revealed to you sufficient to prevent you from asking them? By Allah I have never seen any one of them asking (Muslims) about what has been revealed to you."


Hadith Number 851.

Narrated by An-Nu'man bin Bashir (Radhi Allahu Anhu): The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "The example of the person abiding by Allah's orders and limits (or the one who abides by the limits and regulations prescribed by Allah) in comparison to the one who do wrong and violate Allah's limits and orders is like the example of people drawing lots for seats in a boat. Some of them got seats in the upper part while the others in the lower part; those in the lower part have to pass by those in the upper one to get water, and that troubled the latter. One of them (i.e. the people in the lower part) took an axe and started making a hole in the bottom of the boat. The people of the upper part came and asked him, (saying), 'What is wrong with you?' He replied, "You have been troubled much by my (coming up to you), and I have to get water.' Now if they prevent him from doing that they will save him and themselves, but if they leave him (to do what he wants), they will destroy him and themselves." (*)


* This means that one should not only avoid violating Allah’s limits but should prevent others from doing so; otherwise the whole society gets corrupted and the good and evil people are destroyed without discrimination.

As Salamu Alaikum


Hadith Number 852.

Narrated by Um Al-Ala (Radhi Allahu Anha): That when the Ansar drew lots as to which of the emigrants should dwell with which of the Ansar, the name of Uthman bin Mazun came out (to be in their lot). Um Al-Ala further said, "Uthman stayed with us, and we nursed him when he got sick, but he died. We shrouded him in his clothes, and Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) came to our house and I said, (addressing the dead 'Uthman), 'O Abu As-Sa'ib! May Allah be merciful to you. I testify that Allah has blessed you.' The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said to me, "How do you know that Allah has blessed him?" I replied, 'I do not know O Allah's Messenger! May my parents be sacrificed for you.' Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, 'As regards Uthman, by Allah he has died and I really wish him every good, yet, by Allah, although I am Allah's Messenger, I do not know what will be done to him.' Um Al-Ala added, 'By Allah I shall never attest the piety of anybody after him. And what Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said made me sad." Um Al-Ala further said, "Once I slept and saw in a dream, a flowing stream for Uthman. So I went to Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) and told him about it, he said, 'That is (the symbol of) his deeds."


Hadith Number 853.

Narrated by 'Aisha (Radhi Allahu Anha): Whenever Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) intended to go on a journey, he used to draw lots among his wives and would take with him the one on whom the lot fell. He also used to fix for everyone of his wives a day and a night, but Sauda bint Zam'a gave her day and night to 'Aisha (Radhi Allahu Anhuma), the wife of the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) intending thereby to please Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam).


Hadith Number 854.

Narrated by Abu Hurairah (Radhi Allahu Anhu): Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "If the people knew what is the reward of making the call (for the prayer) and (of being in) the first row (in the prayer), and if they found no other way to get this privilege except by casting lots, they would certainly cast lots for it. If they knew the reward of the noon prayer, they would race for it, and if they knew the reward of the morning (i.e. Fajr) and 'Isha prayers, they would present themselves for the prayer even if they had to crawl to reach there.
