Book Fifty Two – The Book on Fighting for the Cause of Allah (Jihad)



Hadith Number 041.

Narrated by Abdullah bin Masud (Radhi Allahu Anhu): I asked Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam), "O Allah's Messenger! What is the best deed?" He replied, "To offer the prayers at their early stated fixed times." I asked, "What is next in goodness?" He replied, "To be good and dutiful to your parents." I further asked, what is next in goodness?" He replied, "To participate in Jihad in Allah's Cause." I did not ask Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) anymore and if I had asked him more, he would have told me more.


Hadith Number 042.

Narrated by Ibn 'Abbas (Radhi Allahu Anhuma): Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "There is no Hijrah (i.e. migration-from Makkah to Al-Madinah) after the Conquest (of Makkah), but Jihad and good intention (*) remain; and if you are called (by the Muslim ruler) for fighting, go forth immediately.

* After the Conquest of Makkah there was no need for Muslims to migrate from Makkah to Al-Madinah. The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) tells his companions that one can attain rewards through Jihad against Kufr i.e. to fight for Allah’s cause when there is a call for it otherwise one should have the intention to participate in Jihad and this intention has the same reward as that of Jihad itself.



Hadith Number 043.

Narrated by 'Aishah (Radhi Allahu Anha) : (That she said), "O Allah's Messenger! We consider Jihad as the best deed. Should we not fight in Allah's Cause?" He said, "The best Jihad (for women) is Hajj-Mabrur (i.e. Hajj which is done according to the Prophet’s (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) tradition and is accepted by Allah)."


Hadith Number 044.

Narrated by Abu Hurairah (Radhi Allahu Anhu): A man came to Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) and said, "Instruct me as to such a deed as equals Jihad (in reward)." He replied, "I do not find such a deed." Then he added, "Can you, while the Muslim fighter is in the battle-field, enter your mosque to perform prayers without cease and fast and never break your fast?" The man said, "But who can do that?" (*) Abu- Hurairah (Radhi Allahu Anhu) added, "The Mujahid (i.e. Muslim fighter) is rewarded even for the footsteps of his horse while it wanders bout (for grazing) tied in a long rope."


* Of course, nobody can pray and fast incessantly, and since the Muslim fighter is rewarded as if he is doing such impossible deeds, no possible deed equals Jihad in reward.


Hadith Number 045.

Narrated by Abu Said Al-Khudri (Radhi Allahu Anhu): Somebody asked, "O Allah's Messenger! Who is the best among the people?" Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) replied "A believer who strives his utmost in Allah's Cause with his life and property." They asked, "Who is next?" He replied, "A believer who stays in one of the mountain paths worshipping Allah and leaving the people secure from his mischief." (*)


* This is true n times of afflictions and disorder, otherwise social life is better than seclusion as the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) say in a Hadith reported by A-Tirmidhi “He who mixes with people and endures their mischief is better rewarded than he who does not mix with people and does not endure their mischief.” (Qastalani V5 P34)

As Salamu Alaikum


Hadith Number 046.

Narrated by Abu Hurairah (Radhi Allahu Anhu): I heard Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) saying, "The example of a Mujahid in Allah's cause... and Allah knows better who really strives in his cause... is like a person who fasts and prays continuously. Allah guarantees that He will admit the Mujahid in His Cause into Paradise if he is killed, otherwise He will return him to his home safely with rewards and war booty."


Hadith Number 047.

Narrated by Anas bin Malik (Radhi Allahu Anhu): Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) used to visit Um Haram bint Milhan, who would offer him meals. Um-Haram was the wife of Ubada bin As-Samit. Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam), once visited her and she provided him with food and started looking for lice in his head. (*) Then Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) slept, and afterwards woke up smiling. Um Haram asked, "What causes you to smile, O Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam)?" He said. "Some of my followers who (in a dream) were presented before me as fighters in Allah's Cause (on board a ship) amidst this sea cause me to smile; they were as kings on the thrones (or like kings on the thrones)." (Ishaq, a sub-narrator is not sure as to which expression the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) used.) Um-Haram said, "O Allah's Messenger! Invoke Allah that he makes me one of them. Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) invoked Allah for her and slept again and woke up smiling. Once again Um Haram asked, "What makes you smile, O Allah's Messenger?" He replied, "Some of my followers were presented to me as fighters in Allah's Cause," repeating the same dream. Um-Haram said, "O Allah's Messenger! Invoke Allah that He makes me one of them." He said, "You are amongst the first ones." It happened that she sailed on the sea during the Caliphate of Mu'awiya bin Abi Sufyan, and after she disembarked, she fell down from her riding animal and died.


* It is evident from the life history of the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) that he used to take bath daily even twice daily or more and it is not logical that he could have lice in his head, perhaps he was combing or oiling his hair.


Hadith Number 048.

Narrated by Abu Hurairah (Radhi Allahu Anhu): The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "Whoever believes in Allah and His Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam), offer prayer perfectly and fasts the month of Ramadan, will rightfully be granted Paradise by Allah, no matter whether he fights in Allah's Cause or remains in the land where he is born." The people said, "O Allah's Messenger! Shall we acquaint the people with the is good news?" He said, "Paradise has one-hundred grades which Allah has reserved for the Mujahidin who fight in His Cause, and the distance between each of two grades is like the distance between the Heaven and the Earth. So, when you ask Allah (for something), ask for Al-firdaus which is the best and highest part of Paradise." (i.e. The sub-narrator added, "I think the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) also said, 'Above it (i.e. Al-Firdaus) is the Throne of Beneficent (i.e. Allah), and from it originate the rivers of Paradise.")


Hadith Number 049.

Narrated by Samura (Radhi Allahu Anhu): The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "Last night two men came to me (in a dream) and made me ascend a tree and then admitted me into a better and superior house, better of which I have never seen. One of them said, 'This house is the house of martyrs."


Hadith Number 050.

Narrated by Anas bin Malik (Radhi Allahu Anhu): The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "A single endeavour (of fighting) in Allah's Cause in the forenoon or in the afternoon is better than the world and whatever is in it."

Hadith Number 051.

Narrated by Abu Hurairah (Radhi Allahu Anhu): The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "A place in Paradise as small as a bow is better than all that on which the sun rises and sets (i.e. all the world)." He (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) also said, "A single endeavour in Allah's Cause in the afternoon or in the forenoon is better than all that on which the sun rises and sets."


Hadith Number 052.

Narrated by Sahl bin Sad (Radhi Allahu Anhu): The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "A single endeavour in Allah's Cause in the afternoon and in the forenoon is better than the world and whatever is in it."


Hadith Number 053.

Narrated by Anas bin Malik (Radhi Allahu Anhu): The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "Nobody who dies and finds good from Allah (in the Hereafter) would wish to come back to this world even if he were given the whole world and whatever is in it, except the martyr who, on seeing the superiority of martyrdom, would like to come back to the world and get killed again (in Allah's cause)."

Narrated Anas (Radhi Allahu Anhu): The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "A single endeavour (of fighting) in Allah's Cause in the afternoon or in the forenoon is better than all the world and whatever is in it. A place in Paradise as small as the bow or lash of one of you is better than all the world and whatever is in it. And if a houri (*) from Paradise appeared to the people of the earth, she would fill the space between Heaven and the Earth with light and pleasant scent and her head cover is better than the world and whatever is in it."

* Houri – very fair females created by Allah as such not from the offspring of Adam, with intense black irises of their eyes and intense white sclera.

As Salamu Alaikum


Hadith Number 054.

Narrated by Abu Hurairah (Radhi Allahu Anhu): The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "By Him in Whose Hands my life is! Were it not for some men amongst the believers who dislike to be left behind me and whom I cannot provide with means of conveyance, I would certainly never remain behind any Sariya' (army-unit) setting out in Allah's Cause. By Him in Whose Hands my life is! I would love to be martyred in Al1ah's Cause and then get resurrected and then get martyred, and then get resurrected again and then get martyred and then get resurrected again and then get martyred.


Hadith Number 055.

Narrated by Anas bin Malik (Radhi Allahu Anhu): The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) delivered a sermon and said, "Zaid took the flag and was martyred, and then Ja'far took the flag and was martyred, and then 'Abdullah bin Rawaha took the flag and was martyred too, and then Khalid bin Al-Walid took the flag though he was not appointed as a commander and Allah made him victorious." The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) further added, "It would not please us to have them with us." Aiyub, a sub-narrator, added, "Or the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam), shedding tears, said, 'It would not please them to be with us." (*)


* The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) meant that those martyrs were in a better place than this word. He (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) shed tears while mentioning them, because he pitied their families who would grieve for their loss not knowing that they had moved to a better place.



Hadith Number 056.

Narrated by Anas bin Malik (Radhi Allahu Anhu): Um Haram (Radhi Allahu Anha) said, "Once the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) slept in my house near to me and got up smiling. I said, 'What makes you smile?' He replied, 'Some of my followers who (i.e. in a dream) were presented to me sailing on this green sea like kings on thrones.' I said, 'O Allah's Messenger! Invoke Allah to make me one of them." So the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) invoked Allah for her and went to sleep again. He did the same (i.e. got up and told his dream) and Um Haram repeated her question and he gave the same reply. She said, "Invoke Allah to make me one of them." He said, "You are among the first batch." Later on it happened that she went out in the company of her husband 'Ubada bin As-Samit who went for Jihad and it was the first time the Muslims undertook a naval expedition led by Mu'awiya. When the expedition came to an end and they were returning to Sha'm, a riding animal was presented to her to ride, but the animal let her fall and thus she died.


Hadith Number 057.

Narrated by Anas (Radhi Allahu Anhu): The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) sent seventy men from the tribe of Bani Salim to the tribe of Bani 'Amir. When they reached there, my maternal uncle said to them, "I will go ahead of you, and if they allow me to convey the message of Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) (it will be all right); otherwise you will remain close to me." So he went ahead of them and the pagans granted him security But while he was reporting the message of the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam), they beckoned to one of their men who stabbed him to death. My maternal uncle said, "Allah is Greater! By the Lord of the Ka'bah, I am successful." After that they attacked the rest of the party and killed them all except a lame man who went up to the top of the mountain. (Hammam, a sub-narrator said, "I think another man was saved along with him)." Jibril (Alayhi Salam) informed the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) that they (i.e the martyrs) met their Lord, and He was pleased with them and made them pleased. We used to recite, "Inform our people that we have met our Lord, He is pleased with us and He has made us pleased." Later on this Qur'anic Verse was cancelled. The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) invoked Allah for forty days to curse the murderers from the tribe of Ra'i, Dhakwan, Bani Lihyan and Bam Usaiya who disobeyed Allah and his Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam).

Hadith Number 058.


Narrated by Jundab bin Sufyan (Radhi Allahu Anhu): In one of the holy Battles a finger of Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) (got wounded and) bled. He (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "You are just a finger that bled, and what you got is in Allah's Cause."


Hadith Number 059.

Narrated by Abu Hurairah (Radhi Allahu Anhu): Allah's Messenger said, "By Him in Whose Hands my soul is! Whoever is wounded in Allah's Cause... and Allah knows well who gets wounded in His Cause... will come on the Day of Resurrection with his wound having the colour of blood but the scent of musk."


Hadith Number 060.

Narrated by Abdullah bin Abbas (Radhi Allahu Anhuma): That Abu Sufyan told him that Heraclius said to him, "I asked you about the outcome of your battles with him (i.e. the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) and you told me that you fought each other with alternate success. So the Messengers are tested in this way but the ultimate victory is always theirs.


Hadith Number 061.

Narrated by Anas (Radhi Allahu Anhu): My uncle Anas bin An-Nadr (Radhi Allahu Anhu) was absent from the Battle of Badr. He said, "O Allah's Messenger! I was absent from the first battle you fought against the pagans. (By Allah) if Allah gives me a chance to fight the pagans, no doubt. Allah will see how (bravely) I will fight." On the day of Uhud when the Muslims turned their backs and fled, he said, "O Allah! I apologize to You for what these (i.e. his companions) have done, and I denounce what these (i.e. the pagans) have done." Then he advanced and Sad bin Muadh met him. He said "O Sad bin Muadh ! By the Lord of An-Nadr, Paradise! I am smelling its aroma coming from before (the mountain of) Uhud," Later on Sad said, "O Allah's Messenger! I cannot achieve or do what he (i.e. Anas bin An-Nadr) did. We found more than eighty wounds by swords and arrows on his body. We found him dead and his body was mutilated so badly that none except his sister could recognize him by his fingers." We used to think that the following Verse was revealed concerning him and other men of his sort: "Among the believers are men who have been true to their covenant with Allah..." (Surah Al-Ahzab 33: 23)

His sister Ar-Rubbaya' broke a front tooth of a woman and Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) ordered for retaliation. On that Anas (bin An-Nadr) said, "O Allah's Messenger! By Him Who has sent you with the Truth, my sister's tooth shall not be broken." Then the opponents of Anas's sister accepted the compensation and gave up the claim of retaliation. So Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "There are some people amongst Allah's slaves whose oaths are fulfilled by Allah when they take them."

Hadith Number 062.

Narrated by Kharija bin Zaid: Zaid bin Thabit (Radhi Allahu Anhu) said, "When the Qur'an was compiled from various written manuscripts, one of the Verses of Surat Al-Ahzab was missing which I used to hear Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) reciting. I could not find it except with Khuzaima bin Thabit Al-Ansari (Radhi Allahu Anhu), whose witness Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) regarded as equal to the witness of two men. And the Verse was: "Among the believers are men who have been true to what they covenanted with Allah." (Surah Al-Ahzab 33: 23)


Hadith Number 063.

Narrated by Al-Bara (Radhi Allahu Anhu): A man whose face was covered with an iron mask (i.e. clad in armour) came to the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) and said, "O Allah's Messenger! Shall I fight or embrace Islam first? "The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "Embrace Islam first and then fight." So he embraced Islam, and was martyred. Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, A Little work, but a great reward. "(He did very little (after embracing Islam), but he will be rewarded in abundance)."


Hadith Number 064.

Narrated by Anas bin Malik (Radhi Allahu Anhu): Um Ar-Rubai'bint Al-Bara', the mother of Hartha bin Suraqa came to the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) and said, "O Allah's Prophet! Will you tell me about Hartha?" Hartha has been killed (i.e. martyred) on the day of Badr with an arrow thrown by an unidentified person. She added, "If he is in Paradise, I will be patient; otherwise, I will weep bitterly for him." He said, "O mother of Hartha! There are Gardens in Paradise and your son got the Firdausal-A'la (i.e. the best place in Paradise)."


Hadith Number 065.

Narrated by Abu Musa (Radhi Allahu Anhu): A man came to the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) and asked, "A man fights for war booty; another fights for fame and a third fights for showing off; which of them fights in Allah's Cause?" The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "He who fights that Allah's Word (i.e. Islam) should be superior, fights in Allah's Cause."


Hadith Number 066.

Narrated by Abu Abs, (Who is 'Abdur-Rahman bin Jabir) (Radhi Allahu Anhu): Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "Anyone whose both feet get covered with dust in Allah's Cause will not be touched by the (Hell) fire."

Hadith Number 067.

Narrated by 'Ikrima (Radhi Allahu Anhu): That Ibn 'Abbas told him and 'Ali bin 'Abdullah to go to Abu Sa'id and listen to some of his narrations; so they both went (and saw) Abu Sa'id and his brother irrigating a garden belonging to them. When he saw them, he came up to them and sat down with his legs drawn up and wrapped in his garment and said, "(During the construction of the Masjid of the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam)) we carried the adobe of the Masjid, one brick at a time while 'Ammar used to carry two at a time. The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) passed by 'Ammar and removed the dust off his head and said, "May Allah be merciful to 'Ammar. He will be killed by a rebellious aggressive group. 'Ammar will invite them to (obey) Allah and they will invite him to the (Hell) fire."


Hadith Number 068.

Narrated by 'Aishah (Radhi Allahu Anha): When Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) returned on the day (of the battle) of Al-Khandaq (i.e. Trench), he put down his arms and took a bath. Then Jibril (Alayhi Salam) whose head was covered with dust, came to him saying, "You have put down your arms! By Allah, I have not put down my arms yet." Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "Where (to go now)?" Jibril (Alayhi Salam) said, "This way," pointing towards the tribe of Bani Quraiza. So Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) went out towards them.


Hadith Number 069.

Narrated by Anas bin Malik (Radhi Allahu Anhu): For thirty days Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) invoked Allah to curse those who had killed the companions of Bi'r-Mauna; he invoked evil upon the tribes of Ra'i, Dhakwan, and 'Usaiya who disobeyed Allah and His Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam). There was revealed about those who were killed at Bi'r-Mauna a Qur'anic Verse we used to recite, but it was cancelled later on. The Verse was: "Inform our people that we have met our Lord. He is pleased with us and He has made us pleased."


Hadith Number 070.

Narrated by Jabir bin Abdullah (Radhi Allahu Anhu): "Some people drank alcohol (*) in the morning of the day (of the battle) of Uhud and were martyred (on the same day)." Sufyan was asked, "(Were they martyred) in the last part of the day?)" He replied, "Such information does not occur in the narration."


* This happened before the prohibition of alcohol.


Hadith Number 071.

Narrated by Jabir (Radhi Allahu Anhu): My father's mutilated body was brought to the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) and was placed in front of him. I went to uncover his face but my companions forbade me. Then mourning cries of a lady were heard, and it was said that she was either the daughter or the sister of 'Amr. The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "Why is she crying?" Or said, "Do not cry, for the angels are still shading him with their wings." (Al-Bukhari asked Sadaqa, a sub-narrator, "Does the narration include the expression: 'Till he was lifted?' " The latter replied, "Jabir may have said it.")

Hadith Number 072.

Narrated by Anas bin Malik (Radhi Allahu Anhu): The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "Nobody who enters Paradise likes to go back to the world even if he got everything on the earth, except a Mujahid who wishes to return to the world so that he may be martyred ten times because of the dignity he receives (from Allah)."

Narrated Al-Mughira bin Shu'ba (Radhi Allahu Anhu): Our Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) told us about the message of our Lord that "Whoever amongst us is killed will go to Paradise." Umar (Radhi Allahu Anhu) asked the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam), "Is it not true that our men who are killed will go to Paradise and their's (i.e. those of the Pagan's) will go to the (Hell) fire?" The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "Yes."


Hadith Number 073.

Narrated by 'Abdullah bin Abi Aufa (Radhi Allahu Anhu): Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "Know that Paradise is under the shades of swords."


Hadith Number 074A.

Narrated by Abu Hurairah (Radhi Allahu Anhu): Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "Once Sulaiman, son of Dawud ((Alayhuma Salam) ) said, '(By Allah) Tonight I will have sexual intercourse with one hundred (or ninety-nine) women each of whom will give birth to a knight who will fight in Allah's Cause.' On that a companion of his said, say “Allah willing” but he did not say, 'Allah willing.' Therefore only one of those women conceived and gave birth to a half-man. By Him in Whose Hands Muhammad's life is, if he had said, "Allah willing', (he would have begotten sons) all of whom would have been knights striving in Allah's Cause."


Hadith Number 074B.

Narrated by Anas (Radhi Allahu Anhu): The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) was the best, the bravest and the most generous of all the people. Once when the people of Al-Madinah got frightened, the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) rode a horse and went ahead of them and said, "We found this horse very fast."


Hadith Number 075.

Narrated by Muhammad bin Jubair: Jubair bin Mut'im (Radhi Allahu Anhu) told me that while he was in the company of Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) with the people returning from Hunain, some people (bedouins) caught hold of the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) and started begging of him so much so that he had to stand under a (kind of thorny tree (i.e. Samurah) and his cloak was snatched away. The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) stopped and said, "Give me my cloak. If I had as many camels as these thorny trees, I would have distributed them amongst you and you will not find me a miser or a liar or a coward."

Hadith Number 076.

Narrated by 'Amr bin Maimun Al-Audi: Sad used to teach his sons the following words as a teacher teaches his students the skill of writing and used to say that Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) used to seek Refuge with Allah from them (i.e. the evils) at the end of every prayer. The words are:

Hadith Number 080B.

Narrated by Abu Hurairah (Radhi Allahu Anhu): I went to Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) while he was at Khaibar after it had fallen in the Muslims' hands. I said, "O Allah's Messenger! Give me a share (from the land of Khaibar)."

One of the sons of Sa'id bin Al-'As said, "O Allah's Messenger! Do not give him a share." I said, "This is the murderer of Ibn Qauqal." The son of Said bin Al-As said, "Strange! A Wabr (i.e. guinea pig) who has come down to us from the mountain of Qaduim (i.e. grazing place of sheep) blames me for killing a Muslim who was given superiority by Allah because of me, and Allah did not disgrace me at his hands (i.e. was not killed as an infidel)." (The sub-narrator said "I do not know whether the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) gave him a share or not.")


Hadith Number 081.

Narrated by Anas bin Malik (Radhi Allahu Anhu): In the life-time of the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam), Abu Talha (Radhi Allahu Anhu) did not fast because of the Jihad, but after the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) died I never saw him without fasting except on 'Id-ul-Fitr and 'Id-ul-Aclha.


Hadith Number 082.

Narrated by Abu Hurairah (Radhi Allahu Anhu): Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "Five are regarded as martyrs: They are those who die because of plague, abdominal disease, drowning or a falling building etc., and the martyrs in Allah's Cause."


Hadith Number 083.

Narrated by Anas bin Malik (Radhi Allahu Anhu): The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "Plague is the cause of martyrdom of every Muslim (who dies because of it)."


Hadith Number 084.

Narrated by Al-Bara (Radhi Allahu Anhu): When the Divine Inspiration: "Those of the believers who sit (at home), was revealed the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) sent for Zaid (bin Thabit) (Radhi Allahu Anhu) who came with a shoulder-blade and wrote on it. Ibn Um-Maktum (Radhi Allahu Anhu) complained about his blindness and on that the following revelation came: "Not equal are those believers who sit (at home) except those who are disabled (by injury, or are blind or lame etc.) and those who strive hard and fight in the Way of Allah with their wealth and lives)." (Surah An-Nisa’ 4: 95)


Hadith Number 085.

Narrated by Sahl bin Sad As-Sa'idi: I saw Marwan bin Al-Hakam sitting in the Masjid. So I came forward and sat by his side. He told us that Zaid bin Thabit (Radhi Allahu Anhu) had told him that Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) had dictated to him the Divine Verse:

"Not equal are those believers who sit (at home) and those who strive hard and fight in the cause of Allah with their wealth and lives.' (Surah An-Nisa’ 4: 95)

Zaid said, "Ibn-Maktum (Radhi Allahu Anhu) came to the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) while he was dictating to me that very Verse. On that Ibn Um Maktum said, "O Allah's Messenger! If I had power, I would surely take part in Jihad." He was a blind man. So Allah sent down revelation to His Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) while his thigh was on mine and it became so heavy for me that I feared that my thigh would be broken. Then that state of the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) was over after Allah revealed "...except those who are disabled (by injury or are blind or lame etc.) (Surah An-Nisa’ 4: 95)

When he noticed their fatigue and hunger he said, "O Allah! The real life is that of the Here-after, (so please) forgive the Ansar and the Emigrants. (*) " In its reply the Emigrants and the Ansar said, "We are those who have given a pledge of allegiance to Muhammad that we will carry on Jihad as long as we live."

Hadith Number 089.

And he was saying, "Without You (O Allah!) we would have got no guidance, nor given in charity, nor prayed. So please bless us with tranquillity and make firm our feet when we meet our enemies.

Hadith Number 094.

Narrated by Abu Hurairah (Radhi Allahu Anhu) : The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "Whoever spends two things in Allah's Cause, will be called by all the gate-keepers of Paradise who will be saying, 'O so-and-so! Come here.' " Abu Bakr (Radhi Allahu Anhu) said, "O Allah's Messenger! Such persons will never be destroyed." The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "I hope you will be one of them."


Hadith Number 095.

Narrated by Abu Sa'id Al-Khudri (Radhi Allahu Anhu): Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) ascended the pulpit and said, "Nothing worries me as to what will happen to you after me, except the temptation of worldly blessings which will be conferred on you." Then he mentioned the worldly pleasures. He started with the one (i.e. the blessings) and took up the other (i.e. the pleasures). A man got up saying, "O Allah's Messenger! Can the good bring about evil?" The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) remained silent and we thought that he was being inspired divinely, so all the people kept silent with awe. Then the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) wiped the sweat off his face and asked, "Where is the present questioner?" "Do you think wealth is good?" he repeated thrice, adding, "No doubt, good produces nothing but good. Indeed it is like what grows on the banks of a stream which either kills or nearly kills the grazing animals because of gluttony except the vegetation-eating animal which eats till both its flanks are full (i.e. till it gets satisfied) and then stands in the sun and defecates and urinates and again starts grazing. This worldly property is sweet vegetation. How excellent the wealth of the Muslim is, if it is collected through legal means and is spent in Allah's Cause and on orphans, poor people and travellers. But he who does not take it legally is like an eater who is never satisfied and his wealth will be a witness against him on the Day of Resurrection."


Hadith Number 096.

Narrated by Zaid bin Khalid (Radhi Allahu Anhu): Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, " He who prepares a Ghazi going in Allah's Cause is given a reward equal to that of) a Ghazi; (*) and he who looks after properly the dependents of a Ghazi going in Allah's Cause is (given a reward equal to that of) Ghazi."

* Ghazi – a warrior returning after participating in Jihad

Az-Zubair (Radhi Allahu Anhu) said again, "I will." The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "Every Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) had a disciple and my disciple is Az-Zubair."

The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam)) called the people again and Az-Zubair responded to the call.

He himself was not in the state of Ihram. They saw an onager before he could see it. When they saw the onager, they did not speak anything till Abu Qatada saw it. So, he rode over his horse called Al-Jarada and requested them to give him his lash, but they refused. So, he himself took it and then attacked the onager and slaughtered it. He ate of its meat and his companions ate, too, but they regretted their eating. When they met the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) (they asked him about it) and he asked, "Have you some of its meat (left) with you?" Abu Qatada replied, "Yes, we have its leg with us."

Do you know what Allah's right on His slaves is, and what the right of His slaves on Him is?" I replied, "Allah and His Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) know better." He said, "Allah's right on His slaves is that they should worship Him (Alone) and should not worship any besides Him. And slave's right on Allah is that He should not punish him who worships none besides Him." I said, "O Allah's Messenger! Should I not inform the people of this good news?"

Hadith Number 109.

Narrated by Anas bin Malik (Radhi Allahu Anhu): Once there was a feeling of fright in Al-Madinah, so the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) borrowed a horse belonging to us called Mandub (and he rode away on it). (When the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) returned) he said, "I have not seen anything of fright and I found it (i.e. this horse) very fast."


Hadith Number 110.

Narrated by 'Abdullah bin 'Umar (Radhi Allahu Anhuma): I heard the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) saying. "Evil omen is in three things: The horse, the woman and the house." (*)

* Superstition is disliked in Islam, but if one should think that there are things of bad omen, one may find such bad omen in a horse that is obstinate or not used for Jihad, a woman that is sterile or discontented or impudent, a house that is not spacious or far from Masjid or neighbouring a bad neighbour.


Hadith Number 111.

Narrated by Sahl bin Sa'd Sa'idi (Radhi Allahu Anhu): Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said "If there is any evil omen in anything, then it is in the woman, the horse and the house."



Hadith Number 112.

Narrated by Abu Hurairah (Radhi Allahu Anhu): Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, " Horses are kept for one of three purposes; for some people they are a source of reward, for some others they are a means of shelter and for some others they are a source of sins. The one for whom they are a source of reward, is he who keeps a horse for Allah's Cause (i.e. Jihad) tying it with a long tether on a meadow or in a garden with the result that whatever it eats from the area of the meadow or the garden where it is tied will be counted as good deeds for his benefit, and if it should break its rope and jump over one or two hillocks then all its dung and its foot marks will be written as good deeds for him; and if it passes by a river and drinks water from it even though he had no intention of watering it, even then he will get the reward for its drinking. As for the man for whom horses are a source of sins, he is the one who keeps a horse for the sake of pride and pretence and showing enmity for Muslims: such a horse will be a source of sins for him. When Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) was asked about donkeys, he replied, "Nothing has been revealed to me about them except this unique, comprehensive Verse: "Then anyone who does an atom's (or a small ant's) weight of good shall see it; And anyone who does an atom's (or a small ant's) weight of evil, shall see it.' (Surah Az-Zalzalah 99: 7-8)

Hadith Number 113.

Narrated by Muslim: From Abu Aqil from Abu Al-Mutawakkil An-Naji, I called on Jabir bin 'Abdullah Al-Ansari (Radhi Allahu Anhu) and said to him, "Relate to me what you have heard from Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam)." He said, "I accompanied him on one of the journeys." (Abu Aqil said, "I do not know whether that journey was for the purpose of Jihad or 'Umrah.") "When we were returning," Jabir continued, "the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, 'Whoever wants to return earlier to his family, should hurry up.' We set off and I was on a black red tainted camel having no defect, and the people were behind me. While I was in that state the camel stopped suddenly (because of exhaustion). On that the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said to me, 'O Jabir, wait!' Then he hit it once with his lash and it started moving on a fast pace. He then said, 'Will you sell the camel?' I replied in the affirmative when we reached Al-Madinah, and the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) went to the Masjid along with his companions. I, too, went to him after tying the camel on the pavement at the Masjid’s gate. Then I said to him, 'This is your camel.' He came out and started examining the camel and saying, 'The camel is ours.' Then the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) sent some Awaq (i.e. an amount) of gold saying, 'Give it to Jabir.' Then he asked, 'Have you taken the full price (of the camel)?' I replied in the affirmative. He said, 'Both the price and the camel are for you.'"


Hadith Number 114.

Narrated by Anas bin Malik (Radhi Allahu Anhu): There was a feeling of fright in Al-Madinah, so the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) borrowed a horse called Mandub belonging to Abu Talha (Radhi Allahu Anhu) and mounted it. (On his return), he said, "I did not see anything of fright and I found this horse very fast."


Hadith Number 115.

Narrated by Ibn 'Umar (Radhi Allahu Anhuma): Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) fixed two shares for the horse and one share for its rider (from the war booty).


Hadith Number 116.

Narrated by Abu Ishaq: Somebody asked Al-Bara bin 'Azib (Radhi Allahu Anhuma), "Did you flee deserting Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) during the battle of Hunain?" Al-Bara replied, "But Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) did not flee. The people of the Tribe of Hawazin were good archers. When we met them, we attacked them, and they fled. When the Muslims started collecting the war booty, the pagans faced us with arrows, but Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) did not flee. No doubt, I saw him on his white mule and Abu Sufyan was holding its reins and the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) was saying, 'I am the Prophet in truth: I am the son of 'Abdul Muttalib.'"


Hadith Number 117.

Narrated by Ibn'Umar (Radhi Allahu Anhuma): When the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) put his feet in the stirrup and the she-camel got up carrying him he would start reciting Talbiya at the Masjid of Dhul-Hulaifa.

The Muslims felt it so much that the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) noticed their distress. He then said, "It is Allah's Law that He brings down whatever rises high in the world."

Hadith Number 125.

Narrated by 'Amr bin Al-Harith (Radhi Allahu Anhu): The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) did not leave anything behind him after his death except a white mule, his arms and a piece of land which he left to be given in charity.


Hadith Number 126.

Narrated by Al-Bara (Radhi Allahu Anhu): That a man asked him. "O Abu 'Umara! Did you flee on the day (of the battle) of Hunain?" He replied, "No, by Allah, the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) did not flee but the hasty people fled and the people of the Tribe of Hawazin attacked them with arrows, while the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) was riding his white mule and Abu Sufyan bin Al-Harith was holding its reins, and the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) was saying, 'I am the Prophet in truth, I am the son of 'Abdul Muttalib.'"


Hadith Number 127.

Narrated by 'Aishah (Radhi Allahu Anha), the mother of the faithful believers: I requested the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) permit me to participate in Jihad, but he said, "Your Jihad is the performance of Hajj."

Hadith Number 129.

Narrated by Anas (Radhi Allahu Anhu): Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) went to the daughter of Milhan and reclined there (and slept) and then (woke up) smiling. She asked, "O Allah's Messenger! What makes you smile?" He replied, (I dreamt that) some people amongst my followers were sailing on the green sea in Allah's Cause, resembling kings on thrones." She said, "O Allah's Messenger! Invoke Allah to make me one of them." He (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "O Allah! Let her be one of them." Then he (slept again and woke up and) smiled. She asked him the same question and he gave the same reply. She said, "Invoke Allah to make me one of them." He replied, ''You will be amongst the first group of them; you will not be amongst the last."

Hadith Number 131.

Narrated by Anas (Radhi Allahu Anhu): On the day (of the battle) of Uhud when (some) people retreated and left the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam), I saw 'Aishah bint Abu Bakr and Um Sulaim (Radhi Allahu Anhuma) with their robes tucked up so that the bangles around their ankles were visible (*) hurrying with their water skins (in another narration it is said, "carrying the water skins on their backs"). Then they would pour the water in the mouths of the people, and return to fill the water skins again and came back again to pour water in the mouths of the people.

* This even took place before the revelation of the Verse of Hijab (i.e. the veil)


Hadith Number 132.

Narrated by Tha'laba bin Abi Malik: 'Umar bin Al-Khattab (Radhi Allahu Anhu) distributed some garments amongst the women of Al-Madinah. One good garment remained, and one of those present with him said, "O chief of the believers! Give this garment to your wife, the (grand) daughter of Allah's Messenger." They meant Um Kulthum, the daughter of 'Ali. 'Umar (Radhi Allahu Anhu) said, Um Salit (Radhi Allahu Anha) has more right (to have it)." Um Salit was amongst those Ansari women who had given the pledge of allegiance to Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam).' 'Umar said, "She (i.e. Um Salit) used to carry the water skins for us on the day of Uhud."


Hadith Number 133.

Narrated by Ar-Rubayya' bint Mu'auwidh (Radhi Allahu Anha): We were in the company of the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) providing the wounded with water and treating them and bringing the killed to Al-Madinah (from the battle field).

Hadith Number 136.

Narrated by 'Aishah (Radhi Allahu Anha): The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) was vigilant one night and when he reached Al-Madinah, he said, "Would that a pious man from my companions guard me tonight!" Suddenly we heard the clatter of arms. He said, "Who is that? " He (The new comer) replied, " I am Sa'd bin Abi Waqqas (Radhi Allahu Anhu) and have come to guard you." So, the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) slept (that night).


Hadith Number 137.

Narrated by Abu Hurairah (Radhi Allahu Anhu): The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "Let the slave of Dinar and Dirham of Qatifa and Khamisa (i.e. money and luxurious clothes) perish for he is pleased if these things are given to him, and if not, he is displeased!"

Narrated Abu Hurairah (Radhi Allahu Anhu): The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, " Let the slave of Dinar and Dirham, of Qatifa and Khamisa perish as he is pleased if these things are given to him, and if not, he is displeased. Let such a person perish and relapse, and if he is pierced with a thorn, let him not find anyone to take it out for him. (*) Paradise is for him who holds the reins of his horse to strive in Allah's Cause, with his hair unkempt and feet covered with dust: if he is appointed in the vanguard, he is perfectly satisfied with his post of guarding, and if he is appointed in the rearguard, he accepts his post with satisfaction; (he is so simple and un-ambitious that) if he asks for permission he is not permitted, and if he intercedes, his intercession is not accepted." (**)


*So that he would not be able to work and earn what he desires most.

** The latter are the characteristics of a person who is not interested in worldly privileges, he does not seek fame or high social rank; his sole amibition is to win Paradise and Allah's Pleasure.




Hadith Number 138.

Narrated by Anas (Radhi Allahu Anhu): I was in the company of Jarir bin 'Abdullah on a journey and he used to serve me though he was older than I. Jarir said, "I saw the Ansar doing a thing (i.e. showing great reverence to the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam)) for which I have vowed that whenever I meet any of them, I will serve him."


Hadith Number 139.

Narrated by Anas bin Malik (Radhi Allahu Anhu): I went along with the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) to Khaibar so as to serve him. (Later on) when the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) returned he, on seeing the Uhud mountain, said, "This is a mountain that loves us and is loved by us." Then he pointed to Al-Madinah with his hand saying, "O Allah! I make the area which is in between Al-Madinah's two mountains a sanctuary, as Ibrahim made Makkah a sanctuary. O Allah! Bless us in our Sa' and Mudd (i.e. units of measuring)."


Hadith Number 140.

Narrated by Anas (Radhi Allahu Anhu): We were with the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) (on a journey) and the only shade one could have was the shade made by one's own garment. Those who fasted did not do any work and those who did not fast served the camels and brought the water on them and treated the sick and (wounded). So, the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "Today, those who were not fasting took (all) the reward." (*)

* This does not mean that those who fasted did not deserve any reward, but it means that those who did not fast deserved double reward, because they served themselves as well as the fasting persons.

Hadith Number 141.

Narrated by Abu Hurairah (Radhi Allahu Anhu): The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "Charity is obligatory everyday on every joint of a human being. (*) If one helps a person in matters concerning his riding animal by helping him to ride it or by lifting his luggage on to it, all this will be regarded charity. A good word, and every step one takes to offer the compulsory Congregational prayer, is regarded as charity; and guiding somebody on the road is regarded as charity."

* To show gratitude to Allah for keeping your body safe and sound you should give in charity, or do chairtable deeds.


Hadith Number 142.

Narrated by Sahl bin Sa'd As-Sa'di (Radhi Allahu Anhu): Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "To guard Muslims from infidels in Allah's Cause for one day is better than the world and whatever is on its surface, and a place in Paradise as small as that occupied by the whip of one of you is better than the world and whatever is on its surface; and a morning's or an evening's journey which a slave (person) travels in Allah's Cause is better than the world and whatever is on its surface."


Hadith Number 143.

Narrated by Anas bin Malik (Radhi Allahu Anhu): The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said to Abu Talha (Radhi Allahu Anhu), "Choose one of your boy servants to serve me in my expedition to Khaibar." So, Abu Talha (Radhi Allahu Anhu) took me letting me ride behind him while I was a boy nearing the age of puberty. I used to serve Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) when he stopped to rest. I heard him saying repeatedly, "O Allah! I seek refuge with You from distress and sorrow, from helplessness and laziness, from miserliness and cowardice, from being heavily in debt and from being overcome by men." Then we reached Khaibar; and when Allah enabled him to conquer the Fort (of Khaibar), the beauty of Safiyyah bint Huyai bin Akhtab was described to him. Her husband had been killed while she was a bride. So Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) selected her for himself and took her along with him till we reached a place called Sad-AsSahba,' where her menses were over and he took her for his wife. Hais (*) (a kind of dish) was served on a small leather sheet. Then Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) told me to call those who were around me. So, that was the marriage banquet of Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) and Safiyyah. Then we left for Al-Madinah. I saw Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) folding a cloak round the hump of the camel so as to make a wide space for Safiyyah (to sit on behind him) He sat beside his camel letting his knees for Safiyyah to put her feet on so as to mount the camel. Then, we proceeded till we approached Al-Madinah; he looked at Uhud (mountain) and said, "This is a mountain which loves us and is loved by us." Then he looked at Al-Madinah and said, "O Allah! I make the area between its (i.e. Al-Madinah's) two mountains a sanctuary as Ibrahim made Makkah a sanctuary. O Allah! Bless them (i.e. the people of Al-Madinah) in their Mudd and Sa' (i.e. measures)."

* Hais-A dish made of cooking butter, dates and cheese.

Hadith Number 144.

Narrated by Anas bin Malik (Radhi Allahu Anhu): Um Haram (Radhi Allahu Anhu) told me that the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) one day took a midday nap in her house. Then he woke up smiling. Um Haram asked, "O Allah's Messenger! What makes you smile?" He replied "I was astonished to see (in my dream) some people amongst my followers on a sea-voyage looking like kings on the thrones." She said, "O Allah's Messenger! Invoke Allah to make me one of them." He replied, "You are amongst them." He slept again and then woke up smiling and said the same as before twice or thrice. And she said, "O Allah's Messenger! Invoke Allah to make me one of them." And he said, "You are amongst the first batch." 'Ubada bin As-Samit married her (i.e. Um Haram) and then he took her for Jihad. When she returned, an animal was presented to her to ride, but she fell down and her neck was broken.


Hadith Number 145.

Narrated by Mus'ab bin Sa'd: Once Sa'd bin Abi Waqqas (Radhi Allahu Anhu) thought that he was superior to those who were below him in rank. On that the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "You gain no victory or livelihood except through (the blessings and invocations of) the poor amongst you."


Hadith Number 146.

Narrated by Abu Sai'd Al-Khudri (Radhi Allahu Anhu): The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "A time will come when groups of people will go for Jihad and it will be asked, 'Is there anyone amongst you who has enjoyed the company of the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam)?' The answer will be, 'Yes.' Then they will be given victory (by Allah) (because of him). Then a time will come when it will be asked. 'Is there anyone amongst you who has enjoyed the company of the companions of the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam)?' It will be said, 'Yes,' and they will be given victory (by Allah). Then a time will come when it will be said. 'Is there anyone amongst you who has enjoyed the company of the companions of the companions of the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam)?' It will be said, 'Yes,' and they will be given victory (by Allah)."


Hadith Number 147.

Narrated by Sahl bin Sa'd As-Sa'idi (Radhi Allahu Anhu): Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) and the pagans faced each other and started fighting. When Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) returned to his camp and when the pagans returned to their camp, somebody talked about a man amongst the companions of Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) who would follow and kill with his sword any pagan going alone. He said, "Nobody did his job (i.e. fighting) so properly today as that man." Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "Indeed, he is amongst the people of the (Hell) Fire." A man amongst the people said, "I shall accompany him (to watch what he does)" Thus he accompanied him, and wherever he stood, he would stand with him, and wherever he ran, he would run with him.

Then the (brave) man got wounded seriously and he decided to bring about his death quickly. He planted the blade of the sword in the ground directing its sharp end towards his chest between his two breasts. Then he leaned on the sword and killed himself. The other man came to Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) and said, "I testify that you are Allah's Messenger." The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) asked, "What has happened?" He replied, "(It is about) the man whom you had described as one of the people of the (Hell) Fire. The people were greatly surprised at what you said, and I said, 'I will find out his reality for you.' So, I came out seeking him. He got severely wounded, and hastened to die by slanting the blade of his sword in the ground directing its sharp end towards his chest between his two breasts. Then he leaned on his sword and killed himself." Then Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "A man may seem to the people as if he were practising the deeds of the people of Paradise while in fact he is from the people of the Hell) Fire, another may seem to the people as if he were practicing the deeds of the people of Hell (Fire), while in fact he is from the people of Paradise."

Hadith Number 148.

Narrated by Salama bin Al-Akwa' (Radhi Allahu Anhu): The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) passed by some people of the tribe of Bani Aslam who were practicing archery. The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "O Bani Ismail! Practice archery as your father Ismail was a great archer. Keep on throwing arrows and I am with Bani so-and-so." So one of the parties ceased throwing. Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "Why do you not throw?" They replied, "How should we throw while you are with them (i.e. on their side)?" On that the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "Throw, and I am with all of you."


Hadith Number 149.

Narrated by Abu Usaid (Radhi Allahu Anhu): On the day (of the battle) of Badr when we stood in rows against (the army of) Quraish and they stood in rows against us, the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "When they do come near you, throw arrows at them."

Hadith Number 151.

Narrated by Anas bin Malik (Radhi Allahu Anhu): Abu Talha and the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) used to shield themselves with one shield. Abu Talha (Radhi Allahu Anhu) was a good archer, and when he threw (his arrows) the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) would look at the target of his arrows.


Hadith Number 152.

Narrated by Sahl (Radhi Allahu Anhu): When the helmet of the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) was smashed on his head and blood covered his face and one of his front teeth got broken, 'Ali brought the water in his shield and Fatima (Radhi Allahu Anha) the Prophet 's daughter washed him. But when she saw that the bleeding increased more by the water, she took a mat, burnt it, and placed the ashes on the wound of the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) and so the blood stopped oozing out.


Hadith Number 153.

Narrated by 'Umar (Radhi Allahu Anhu): The properties of Bani An-Nadir which Allah had transferred to His Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) as Fai (Booty) were not gained by the Muslims with their horses and camels.

Hadith Number 154.

Narrated by Ali (Radhi Allahu Anhu): I never saw the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) saying, "Let my parents sacrifice their lives for you," to any man after Sad. I heard him saying (to him), "Throw (the arrows)! Let my parents sacrifice their lives for you."

Hadith Number 155.

Narrated by 'Aishah (Radhi Allahu Anha): Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) came to my house while two girls were singing beside me the songs of Bu'ath (a story about the war between the two tribes of the Ansar, i.e. Khazraj and Aus, before Islam.) The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) reclined on the bed and turned his face to the other side. Abu Bakr (Radhi Allahu Anhu) came and scolded me and said protestingly, "Instrument of Shaitan in the presence of Allah's Messenger?" Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) turned his face towards him and said, "Leave them." When Abu Bakr became inattentive, I waved the two girls to go away and they left. It was the day of 'Id when negroes used to play with leather shields and spears. Either I requested Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) or he himself asked me whether I would like to see the display. I replied in the affirmative. Then he let me stand behind him and my cheek was touching his cheek and he was saying, "Carry on, O Bani Arfida (i.e. negroes)!" When I got tired, he asked me if that was enough. I replied in the affirmative and he told me to leave.


Hadith Number 156.

Narrated by Anas (Radhi Allahu Anhu): The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) was the best and the bravest amongst the people. Once the people of Al-Madinah got terrified at night, so they went in the direction of the noise (that terrified them). The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) met them (on his way back) after he had found out the truth. He was riding an unsaddled horse belonging to Abu Talha (Radhi Allahu Anhu) and a sword was hanging by his neck, and he was saying, "Don't be afraid! Don't be afraid!" He further said, "I found it (i.e. the horse) very fast," or said, "This horse is very fast." (Qastalani)


Hadith Number 157.

Narrated by Abu Umama: Some people conquered many countries and their swords were decorated neither with gold nor silver, but they were decorated with leather, lead and iron.


Hadith Number 158.

Narrated by Jabir bin Abdullah (Radhi Allahu Anhu): That he proceeded in the company of Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) towards Najd to participate in a Ghazwa. (*) When Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) returned, he too returned with him. Midday came upon them while they were in a valley having many thorny trees. Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) and the people dismounted and dispersed to rest in the shade of the trees. Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) rested under a tree and hung his sword on it. We all took a nap and suddenly we heard Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) calling us. (We woke up) to see a bedouin with him. The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "This bedouin took out my sword while I was sleeping and when I woke up, I found the unsheathed sword in his hand and he challenged me saying, 'Who will save you from me?' I said thrice, 'Allah.' (**) The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) did not punish him but sat down.


*Ghazwa – (pl Ghazawat) a holy battle in the cause of Allah consisting of a large army unit with the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) himself leading the army.

** Jibril (Alayhi Salam) then hit the bedouin on the hand and let fall the sword which was picked up by Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam). Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) forgave the bedouin although he could have killed him on the spot if he had wished. (Qastalani, Vol.5,P 99)

Hadith Number 159.

Narrated by Sahl (Radhi Allahu Anhu): That he was asked about the wound of the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) on the day (of the battle) of Uhud. He said, "The face of the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) as wounded and one of his front teeth as broken and the helmet over his head was smashed. Fatima washed of the blood while Ali held water. When she saw that bleeding was increasing continuously, she burnt a mat (of date-palm leaves) till it turned into ashes which she put over the wound and thus the bleeding ceased."


Hadith Number 160.

Narrated by 'Amr bin Al-Harith (Radhi Allahu Anhu): The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) did not leave behind him after his death, anything except his arms, his white mule, and a piece of land at Khaibar which he left to be given in charity.


Hadith Number 161.

Narrated by Jabir (Radhi Allahu Anhu): As above (Hadith No. 158).


Hadith Number 162.

Narrated by Jabir bin 'Abdullah (Radhi Allahu Anhu): That he participated in a Ghazwa in the company of Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam). Midday came upon them while they were in a valley having many thorny trees. The people dispersed to rest in the shade of the trees. The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) rested under a tree, hung his sword on it, and then slept. Then he woke up to find near to him, a man whose presence he had not noticed before. The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "This (man) took my sword (out of its scabbard) and said, 'Who will save you from me.' I replied, 'Allah.' So, he put the sword back into its scabbard, and you see him sitting here." Anyhow, the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) did not punish him. (See Hadith No. 158)


Hadith Number 163.

Narrated by Abu Qatada (Radhi Allahu Anhu): That he was in the company of Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) and when they had covered a portion of the road to Makkah, he and some of the companions lagged behind. The latter were in a state of Ihram, while he was not. He saw an onager and rode his horse and requested his companions to give him his lash but they refused. Then he asked them to give him his spear but they refused, so he took it himself, attacked the onager, and killed it. Some of the companions of the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) ate of it while some others refused to eat. When they caught up with Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) they asked him about that, and he said, "That was a meal Allah fed you with." (It is also said that Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) asked, "Have you got something of its meat?")


Hadith Number 164.

Narrated by Ibn 'Abbas (Radhi Allahu Anhuma): The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam), while in a tent (on the day of the battle of Badr) said, "O Allah! I ask you the fulfilment of Your Covenant and Promise. O Allah! If You wish (to destroy the believers) You will never be worshipped after today." Abu Bakr (Radhi Allahu Anhu) caught him by the hand and said, "This is sufficient, O Allah's Messenger! You have asked Allah pressingly." The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) was clad in his armor at that time. He went out, saying to me: "Their multitude will be put to flight and they will show their backs. Nay, but the Hour is their appointed time (for their full recompense) and that Hour will be more grievous and more bitter (than their worldly failure)." Khalid said that was on the day of the battle of Badr.
