Book Fifty Six

The Book on the Virtues and Merits of the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam)
and His Companions (Radhi Allahu Anhum)



Hadith Number 695.

Narrated by Ibn Abbas (Radhi Allahu Anhuma): Regarding the Verse: 'And (We) made you into Shu'ub and Qabail... (Surah Al-Hujurat 49:13) that Shu'ub means the big Qabail (i.e. nations) while the Qabail (i.e. tribes) means the branch tribes.


Hadith Number 696.

Narrated by Abu Hurairah (Radhi Allahu Anhu): Once Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) was asked, "Who is the most honorable amongst the people?" He said, "The most righteous (i.e. Allah-fearing) amongst you." They said, "We do not ask you about this." He said, "Then Yusuf, the Prophet of Allah."


Hadith Number 697.

Narrated by Kulaib bin Wail: I asked Zainab bint Abi Salama (i.e. daughter of the wife of the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam), "Tell me about the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam). Did he belong to the tribe of Mudar?" She replied, "Yes, he belonged to the tribe of Mudar and was from the offspring of An-Nadr bin Kinana."


Hadith Number 698.

Narrated by Kulaib: I was told by the Rabiba (i.e. daughter of the wife of the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam)) who, I think, was Zainab, that the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) (forbade the utensils (of wine called) Ad-Dubba, Al-Hantam, Al-Muqaiyar and Al-Muzaffat. I said to her, 'Tell me as to which tribe the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) belonged; was he from the tribe of Mudar?'' She replied, "He belonged to the tribe of Mudar and was from the offspring of An-Nadr bin Kinana."


Hadith Number 699.

Narrated by Abu Hurairah (Radhi Allahu Anhu): Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "You see that the people are of different natures. Those who were the best in the pre-lslamic period, are also the best in Islam if they comprehend religious knowledge. You see that the best amongst the people in this respect (i.e. ambition of ruling) are those who hate it most. And you see that the worst among people is the double faced (person) who appears to these with one face and to the others with another face (i.e a hypocrite)."


Hadith Number 700.

Narrated by Abu Hurairah (Radhi Allahu Anhu): The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "The tribe of Quraish has precedence over the people in this connection (i.e the right of ruling). The Muslims follow the Muslims amongst them, and the infidels follow the infidels amongst them. People are of different natures: The best amongst them in the pre-lslamic period are the best in Islam provided they comprehend the religious knowledge. You will find that the best amongst the people in this respect (i.e. of ruling) is he who hates it (i.e. the idea of ruling) most, till he is given the pledge of allegiance."

As Salamu Alaikum


Hadith Number 701.

Narrated by Tawus: Ibn 'Abbas (Radhi Allahu Anhuma) recited the Qur’anic Verse: 'Except to be kind to me for my kin-ship to you..." (Surah Ash-Shura 42: 23) Sa'id bin Jubair said, "(The Verse implies) the kinship of Muhammad." Ibn 'Abbas said, "There was not a single house (i.e. sub-tribe) of Quraish but had a kinship to the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) and so the above Verse was revealed in this connection, and its interpretation is: 'O Quraish! You should keep good relation between me (i.e. Muhammad) and you."


Hadith Number 702.

Narrated by Abi Mas'ud (Radhi Allahu Anhu): The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "From this side from the east, afflictions will appear. Rudeness and lack of mercy are characteristics of the rural bedouins who are busy with their camels and cows (and pay no attention to religion). Such are the tribes of Rabi'a and Mudar."


Hadith Number 703.

Narrated by Abu Hurairah (Radhi Allahu Anhu): I heard Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) saying, "Pride and arrogance are characteristics of the rural bedouins while calmness is found among the owners of sheep. Belief is Yemenite, and wisdom is also Yemenite (i.e. the Yemenites are well-known for their true belief and wisdom)." Abu 'Abdullah (Al-Bukhari) said, "Yemen was called so because it is situated to the right of the Ka'bah, and Sham was called so because it is situated to the left of the Ka'bah." (*)

* The Arabic word for right and left have great resemblance to the words 'Yemen and Sham'.



Hadith Number 704.

Narrated by Muhammad bin Jubair bin Mut'im : That while he was with a delegation from Quraish to Mu'awiya, the latter heard the news that 'Abdullah bin 'Amr bin Al-'As (Radhi Allahu Anhuma) said that there would be a king from the tribe of Qahtan. On that Mu'awiya became angry, got up and then praised Allah as He deserved, and said, "Now then, I have heard that some men amongst you narrate things which are neither in the Holy Book, nor have been told by Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam). Those men are the ignorant amongst you. Beware of such hopes as make the people go astray, for I heard Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) saying, 'Authority of ruling will remain with Quraish, and whoever bears hostility to them, Allah will destroy him as long as they abide by the laws of the religion.'"

As Salamu Alaikum

Hadith Number 705.

Narrated by Ibn 'Umar (Radhi Allahu Anhuma): The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "Authority of ruling will remain with Quraish, even if only two of them remained."


Hadith Number 706.

Narrated by Jubair bin Mut'im: 'Uthman bin Affan (Radhi Allahu Anhu) went (to the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam)) and said, "O Allah's Messenger! You gave property to Bani Al-Muttalib and did not give us, although we and they are of the same degree of relationship to you." The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "Only Bani Hashim and Bani Al Muttalib are one thing (as regards family status)."

Narrated 'Urwa bin Az-Zubair: 'Abdullah bin Az-Zubair went with some women of the tribe of Bani Zuhra to 'Aishah (Radhi Allahu Anha) who used to treat them nicely because of their relation to Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam).


Hadith Number 707.

Narrated by Abu Hurairah (Radhi Allahu Anhu): Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "The tribe of Quraish, the Ansar, the (people of the tribe of) Juhaina, Muzaina, Aslam, Ashja', and Ghifar are my disciples and have no protectors except Allah and His Messenger."


Hadith Number 708.

Narrated by 'Urwa bin Az-Zubair : 'Abdullah bin Az-Zubair was the most beloved person to 'Aishah (Radhi Allahu Anha) excluding the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) and Abu Bakr, and he in his turn, was the most devoted to her, 'Aishah used not to withhold the money given to her by Allah, but she used to spend it in charity. ('Abdullah) bin Az-Zubair said, " 'Aishah should be stopped from doing so." (When 'Aisha heard this), she said protestingly, "Shall I be stopped from doing so? I vow that I will never talk to 'Abdullah bin Az-Zubair." On that, Ibn Az-Zubair asked some people from Quraish and particularly the two uncles of Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) to intercede with her, but she refused (to talk to him). Az-Zuhriyun, the uncles of the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam), including 'Abdur-Rahman bin Al-Aswad bin 'Abd Yaghuth and Al-Miswar bin Makhrama said to him, "When we ask for the permission to visit her, enter her house along with us (without taking her leave)." He did accordingly (and she accepted their intercession). He sent her ten slaves whom she manumitted as an expiation for (not keeping) her vow. 'Aishah manumitted more slaves for the same purpose till she manumitted forty slaves. She said, "I wish I had specified what I would have done in case of not fulfilling my vow when I made the vow, so that I might have done it easily." (*)

* 'Aishah (Radhi Allahu Anha) did not specify what she do if she did not keep her promise , this is why she manumitted so many slaves so that she might feel at ease as to the adequacy of her expiation.


Hadith Number 709.

Narrated by Anas (Radhi Allahu Anhu): 'Uthman (Radhi Allahu Anhu) called Zaid bin Thabit, Abdullah bin Az-Zubair, Sa'id bin Al-'As and 'AbdurRahman bin Al-Harith bin Hisham, and then they wrote the manuscripts of the Holy Qur'an in the form of book in several copies. 'Uthman said to the three Quraishi persons. " If you differ with Zaid bin Thabit on any point of the Qur’an, then write it in the language of Quraish, as the Qur’an was revealed in their language." So they acted accordingly. (Sa'id bin Thabit was an Ansari and not from Quraish).

Hadith Number 710.

Narrated by Salama (Radhi Allahu Anhu): Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) passed by some people from the tribe of Aslam practicing archery. He said, "O children of Ishmael! Throw (arrows), for your father was an archer. I am on the side of Bani so-and-so," meaning one of the two teams. The other team stopped throwing, whereupon the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "What has happened to them?" They replied, "How shall we throw while you are with Bani so-and-so?" He said, "Throw for I am with all of you."


Hadith Number 711.

Narrated by Abu Dhar (Radhi Allahu Anhu): The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "If somebody claims to be the son of any other than his real father knowingly, he but disbelieves in Allah, and if somebody claims to belong to some folk to whom he does not belong, let such a person take his place in the (Hell) Fire."


Hadith Number 712.

Narrated by Wathila bin Al-Asqa (Radhi Allahu Anhu): Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "Verily, one of the worst lies is to claim falsely to be the son of someone other than one's real father, or to claim to have had a dream one has not had, or to attribute to me what I have not said."


Hadith Number 713.

Narrated by Ibn Abbas (Radhi Allahu Anhuma): The delegates of 'Abd-ul-Qais came to Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) and said, "O Allah's Messenger! We are from the tribe of Rabi'a and the infidels of Mudar tribe stand between us and you, so that we cannot come to you except in the Sacred Months. Therefore we would like you to give us some instructions which we may follow and convey to our people staying behind us." The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "I order you to observe four things and forbid you (to do) four things: (I order you) to believe in Allah testifying that None has the right to be worshipped except Allah; to offer the prayer perfectly; to pay the Zakat; and to give one-fifth of the war booty to Allah. And I forbid you to use Ad-Dubba, Al-Hantam, An-Naqir and Al-Muzaffat." (These are names of utensils in which alcoholic drinks were served.)

Hadith Number 714.

Narrated by 'Abdullah bin 'Umar (Radhi Allahu Anhuma): I heard Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) on the pulpit saying, "Verily, afflictions (will start) from here," pointing towards the east, "whence the side of the head of Satan comes out."


Hadith Number 715.

Narrated by Abu Hurairah (Radhi Allahu Anhu) : The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "The tribes of Quraish, Al-Ansar, Juhaina, Muzaina, Aslam, Ghifar and Ashja' are my helpers, and they have no protector (i.e. Master) except Allah and His Messenger."


Hadith Number 716.

Narrated by 'Abdullah bin 'Umar (Radhi Allahu Anhuma): While Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) was on the pulpit, he said, "May Allah forgive the tribe of Ghifar! And may Allah save the tribe of Aslam! The tribe of 'Usaiya have disobeyed Allah and His Messenger."


Hadith Number 717.

Narrated by Abu Hurairah (Radhi Allahu Anhu): The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "May Allah save the tribe of Aslam, and may Allah forgive the tribe of Ghifar!"


Hadith Number 718.

Narrated by Abu Bakra (Radhi Allahu Anhu): The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "Do you think that the tribes of Juhaina, Muzaina, Aslam and Ghifar are better than the tribes of Bani Tamim, Bani As'ad, Bani 'Abdullah bin Ghatafan and Bani 'Amir bin Sa'sa'a?" A man said, "They were unsuccessful and losers." The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) added," (Yes), they are better than the tribes of Bani Tamim, Bani As'ad, Bani 'Abdullah bin Ghatafan and Bani 'Amir bin Sa'sa'a."


Hadith Number 719.

Narrated by Abu Bakra (Radhi Allahu Anhu): Al-Aqra' bin Habis (Radhi Allahu Anhu) said to the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) "Nobody gave you the pledge of allegiance but the robbers of the pilgrims (i.e. those who used to rob the pilgrims) from the tribes of Aslam, Ghifar, Muzaina." (Ibn Abi Ya'qub is in doubt whether Al-Aqra' added. 'And Juhaina.') The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "Don't you think that the tribes of Aslam, Ghifar, Muzaina (and also perhaps) Juhaina are better than the tribes of Bani Tamim, Bani 'Amir, As'ad, and Ghatafan?" Somebody said, "They were unsuccessful and losers!" The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "Yes, by Him in Whose Hands my life is, they (i.e. the former) are better than they (i.e. the latter)."

Abu Hurairah (Radhi Allahu Anhu) said, "(The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said), '(The people of) Bani Aslam, Ghifar and some people of Muzaina (or some people of Juhaina or Muzaina) are better in Allah's Sight (or on the Day of Resurrection) than the tribes of As'ad, Tamim, Hawazin and Ghatafan.'"

As Salamu Alaikum

Hadith Number 720.

Narrated by Jabir (Radhi Allahu Anhu): We were in the company of the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) in a Ghazwa. A large number of emigrants joined him and among the emigrants there was a person who used to play jokes (or play with spears); so he (jokingly) stroked an Ansari man on the hip. The Ansari got so angry that both of them called their people. The Ansari said, "Help, O Ansar!" And the emigrant said "Help, O emigrants!" The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) came out and said, "What is wrong with the people (as they are calling) this call of the period of Ignorance? "Then he said, "What is the matter with them?" So he was told about the stroke of the emigrant to the Ansari. The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "Stop this (i.e. appeal for help) for it is an evil call.” Abdullah bin Ubai bin Salul (a hypocrite) said, "The emigrants have called and (gathered against us); so when we return to Al-Madinah, surely, the more honorable people will expel therefrom the meaner," Upon that 'Umar (Radhi Allahu Anhu) said, "O Allah's Prophet! Shall we not kill this evil person (i.e. Abdullah bin Ubai bin Salul) ?" The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam)) said, "(No), lest the people should say that Muhammad used to kill his companions."


Hadith Number 721.

Narrated by 'Abdullah (bin Mas'ud) (Radhi Allahu Anhu): The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "Whoever slaps his face or tears the bosom of his dress, or calls the calls of the Period of Ignorance, is not from us."


Hadith Number 722.

Narrated by Abu Hurairah (Radhi Allahu Anhu): Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "'Amr bin Luhai bin Qam'a bin Khindif was the father of Khuza'a."


Hadith Number 723.

Narrated by Sa'id bin Al-Musaiyab: Al-Bahira was an animal whose milk was spared for the idols and other dieties, and so nobody was allowed to milk it. As-Saiba was an animal which they (i.e infidels) used to set free in the names of their gods so that it would not be used for carrying anything. Abu Hurairah (Radhi Allahu Anhu) said, "The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, 'I saw 'Amr bin 'Amir bin Luhai Al-Khuza'i dragging his intestines in the (Hell) Fire, for he was the first man who started the custom of releasing animals (for the sake of false gods).'"


Hadith Number 724.

Narrated by Ibn Abbas (Radhi Allahu Anhuma): When the news of the advent of the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) reached Abu Dhar (Radhi Allahu Anhu), he said to his brother, "Ride to this valley and bring me the news of this man (i.e. the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam)) who claims to be a Prophet receiving information from the Heaven. Listen to him and then come to me." His brother set out till he met the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) and listened to his speech and returned to Abu Dhar and said to him, "I have seen him exhorting people to virtues and his speech was not like poetry." Abu Dhar said, "You have not satisfied me as to what I wanted."

So, he took his journey-food and a water-skin full of water and set out till he reached Makkah, where he went to the Masjid looking for the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam), whom he did not know, and he would not like to ask someone about him. So, a portion of the night had passed when 'Ali (Radhi Allahu Anhu) saw him and realized that he was a stranger. Abu Dhar followed him (to his house), but neither of them asked the other about anything till it was morning, when he carried his water-skin and food and went to the Masjid. He spent that day without being observed by the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) till it was night, when he returned to his sleeping place. 'Ali again passed by him and said, "Hasn't the man (i.e. Abu Dhar) recognized his dwelling place yet?" So, 'Ali let him get up and took him (to his house), but neither of them asked the other about anything, till it was the third day when 'Ali had the same experience with him and Abu Dhar again stayed with him. 'Ali then asked, "Won't you tell me what has brought you here?" He replied, "If you give me a promise and a convention that you will guide me, then I will tell you." When 'Ali did, Abu Dhar informed him (of his purpose). 'Ali said, "It is the Truth, and he (i.e. Muhammad) is the Messenger of Allah. So when the morning comes, follow me, and if I should perceive any danger threatening you, I will give you a hint by pretending to go to the watercloset. But if I carried on walking, follow me till you enter the place that I will enter."

Abu Dhur agreed and followed 'Ali till he entered the place of the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) and Abu Dhur entered with him. He then listened to the speech of the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) and embraced Islam on that very spot. The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said to him, "Go back to your people and inform them (of this religion) till you receive my (further) orders." Abu Dhur said, "By Him in Whose Hands my life is! I will proclaim my conversion to Islam publicly amongst them (i.e. infidels)." He went out till he reached the Masjid and announced as loudly as possible, "I testify that None has the right to be worshipped but Allah and that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah." The people then got up and beat him till they knocked him down. Al-'Abbas came and threw himself over him (to protect him) saying, Woe to you! Don't you know that he is from Ghifar and there is the route (road) to your merchants towards Sham (i.e. through the place where this tribe dwells)?" Thus he saved him from them. Abu Dhar did the same on the next day and the people beat him again and Al-'Abbas drew himself over him (to save him as before).

As Salamu Alaikum

Hadith Number 725.

Narrated by Abu Jamra: Ibn 'Abbas (Radhi Allahu Anhuma) said to us, "Shall I tell you the story of Abu Dhar's conversion to Islam?" We said, "Yes." He said, "Abu Dhar (Radhi Allahu Anhu) said: I was a man from the tribe of Ghifar. We heard that a man had appeared in Makkah, claiming to be a Prophet. ! said to my brother, 'Go to that man and talk to him and bring me his news.' He set out, met him and returned. I asked him, 'What is the news with you?' He said, 'By Allah, I saw a man enjoining what is good and forbidding what is evil.' I said to him, 'You have not satisfied me with this little information.' So, I took a waterskin and a stick and proceeded towards Makkah. Neither did I know him (i.e. the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam)), nor did I like to ask anyone about him. I kept on drinking Zam zam water and staying in the Masjid.

Then 'Ali passed by me and said, 'It seems you are a stranger?' I said, 'Yes.' He proceeded to his house and I accompanied him. Neither did he ask me anything, nor did I tell him anything. Next morning I went to the Masjid to ask about the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) but no-one told me anything about him. Ali passed by me again and asked, 'Hasn't the man recognized his dwelling place yet' I said, 'No.' He said, 'Come along with me.' He asked me, 'What is your business? What has brought you to this town?' I said to him, 'If you keep my secret, I will tell you.' He said, 'I will do,' I said to him, 'We have heard that a person has appeared here, claiming to be a Prophet. I sent my brother to speak to him and when he returned, he did not bring a satisfactory report; so I thought of meeting him personally.' 'Ali said (to Abu Dhar), 'You have reached your goal; I am going to him just now, so follow me, and wherever I enter, enter after me. If I should see someone who may cause you trouble, I will stand near a wall pretending to mend my shoes (as a warning), and you should go away then.' 'Ali proceeded and I accompanied him till he entered a place, and I entered with him to the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) to whom I said, 'Present (the principles of) Islam to me.'

When he did, I embraced Islam 'immediately. He said to me, 'O Abu Dhar! Keep your conversion as a secret and return to your town; and when you hear of our victory, return to us. ' I said, 'By Him Who has sent you with the Truth, I will announce my conversion to Islam publicly amongst them (i.e. the infidels),' Abu Dhar went to the Masjid, where some people from Quraish were present, and said, 'O folk of Quraish ! I testify that None has the right to be worshipped except Allah, and I (also) testify that Muhammad is Allah's Slave and His Messenger.' (Hearing that) the Quraishi men said, 'Get at this Sabi (i.e. Muslim)!' They got up and beat me nearly to death. Al 'Abbas saw me and threw himself over me to protect me. He then faced them and said, 'Woe to you! You want to kill a man from the tribe of Ghifar, although your trade and your communications are through the territory of Ghifar?' They therefore left me. The next morning I returned (to the Masjid) and said the same as I have said on the previous day. They again said, 'Get at this Sabi!' I was treated in the same way as on the previous day, and again Al-Abbas found me and threw himself over me to protect me and told them the same as he had said the day before.' So, that was the conversion of Abu Dhar (Radhi Allahu Anhu) to Islam."

Narrated by Abu Hurairah (Radhi Allahu Anhu): The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "O Bani 'Abd Munaf! Buy yourselves (*) from Allah; O Bani 'Abdul-Muttalib! Buy yourselves from Allah; O mother of Az-Zubair bin Al-Awwam, the aunt of Allah's Messenger, and O Fatima bint Muhammad! Buy yourselves from Allah, for I cannot defend you before Allah. You (both) can ask me from my property as much as you like."

* Buying oneself from Allah means saving oneself from the Fire by leading a pious righteous life.



Hadith Number 729.

Narrated by Anas (Radhi Allahu Anhu): The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) sent for the Ansar (and when they came), he asked, 'Is there any stranger amongst you?" They said, "No except the son of our sister." Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "The son of the sister of some people belongs to them."


Hadith Number 730.

Narrated by 'Aishah (Radhi Allahu Anha): That during the Mina days, Abu Bakr came to her, while there where two girls with her, beating drums, and the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) was (lying) covering himself with his garment. Abu Bakr rebuked the two girls, but the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) uncovered his face and said, "O Abu Bakr! Leave them, for these are the days of Id (festival)." Those days were the days of Mina-. 'Aishah (Radhi Allahu Anha) added, "I was being screened by the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) while I was watching the Ethiopians playing in the Masjid. 'Umar rebuked them, but the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "Leave them, O Bani Arfida! Play (for) you are safe."


Hadith Number 731.

Narrated by 'Aishah (Radhi Allahu Anha): Once Hassan bin Thabit (Radhi Allahu Anhu) asked the permission of the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) to lampoon (i.e. compose satirical poetry defaming) the infidels. The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "What about the fact that I have common descent with them?" Hassan replied, "I shall take you out of them as a hair is taken out of dough."

Narrated 'Urwa: I started abusing Hassan (Radhi Allahu Anhu) in front of 'Aishah, whereupon she said. "Don't abuse him, for he used to defend the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) (with his poetry)."

Hadith Number 732.

Narrated by Jubair bin Mut'im (Radhi Allahu Anhu): Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "I have five names: I am Muhammad and Ahmad; I am Al-Mahi through whom Allah will eliminate infidelity; I am Al-Hashir who will be the first to be resurrected, the people being resurrected there after; and I am also Al-'Aqib (i.e. There will be no Prophet after me)."


Hadith Number 733.

Narrated by Abu Hurairah (Radhi Allahu Anhu): Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "Doesn't it astonish you how Allah protects me from the Quraish's abusing and cursing? They abuse Mudhammam and curse Mudhammam while I am Muhammad (and not Mudhammam)" (*)


* 'Muhammad literally means 'highly praised' while Mudhammam means 'greatly dispraised'. The infidels, out of hatred, refrained from calling the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) by his right name; they called him by a name bearing bad sense. The curses and abuses then fell on that name which was not the name of the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam).



Hadith Number 734.

Narrated by Jabir bin 'Abdullah (Radhi Allahu Anhuma): The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "My similitude in comparison with the other Prophets is that of a man who has built a house completely and excellently except for a place of one brick. When the people enter the house, they admire its beauty and say: 'But for the place of this brick (how splendid the house will be)!"


Hadith Number 735.

Narrated by Abu Hurairah (Radhi Allahu Anhu): Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "My similitude in comparison with the other Prophets before me, is that of a man who has built a house nicely and beautifully, except for a place of one brick in a corner. The people go about it and wonder at its beauty, but say: 'Would that this brick be put in its place!' So I am that brick, and I am the last of the Prophets."


Hadith Number 736.

Narrated by 'Aisha (Radhi Allahu Anha): The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) died when he was sixty three years old.

He said, "I know that I enjoyed my hearing and seeing powers only because of the invocation of Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam). My aunt took me to him and said, 'O Allah's Messenger! My nephew is sick; will you invoke Allah for him?' So he invoked (Allah) for me."


Hadith Number 741.

Narrated by As- Saib bin Yazid (Radhi Allahu Anhu): My aunt took me to Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) and said, "O Allah's Messenger!

Hadith Number 766.

Narrated by Anas (Radhi Allahu Anhu): Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) did not use to raise his hands in his invocations except in the Istisqa (i.e. invoking Allah for the rain) in which he used to raise his hands so high that one could see the whiteness of his armpits. (Note: It may be that Anas did not see the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) raising his hands but it has been narrated that the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) used to raise his hands for invocations other than Istisqa. (See Hadith No. 612 Book 59 and Hadith No. 807 & 808 Book 26.)


Hadith Number 767.

Narrated by Abu Juhaifa (Radhi Allahu Anhu): By chance I went to the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) at noon while he was at Al-Abtah (resting) in a tent. Bilal (Radhi Allahu Anhu) came out (of the tent) and pronounced the Adhan for the prayer, and entering again, he brought out the water which was left after Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) had performed the ablution. The people rushed to take some of the water. Bilal again went in and brought out a spear-headed stick, and then Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) came out. As if I were now looking at the whiteness of his leg. Bilal fixed the stick and the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) offered a two-Rak'at Zuhr prayer and a two-Rak'at 'Asr prayer, while women and donkeys were passing in front of the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) (beyond the stick).


Hadith Number 768.

Narrated by 'Aisha (Radhi Allahu Anha): The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) used to talk so clearly that if somebody wanted to count the number of his words, he could do so. Narrated 'Urwa bin Az-Zubair: 'Aisha said (to me), "Don't you wonder at Abu so-and-so (*) who came and sat by my dwelling and started relating the traditions of Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) intending to let me hear that, while I was performing an optional prayer. He left before I finished my optional prayer. Had I found him still there. I would have said to him, 'Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) never talked so quickly and vaguely as you do.'"

* Abu Hurairah (Radhi Allahu Anhu).



Hadith Number 769.

Narrated by Abu Salama bin 'Abdur-Rahman : That he asked 'Aisha (Radhi Allahu Anhu) "How was the prayer of Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) in the month of Ramadan?" She replied, "He used not to pray more than eleven Rak'at whether in Ramadan or in any other month. He used to offer four Rak'at, let alone their beauty and length, and then four Rak'at, let alone their beauty and length. Afterwards he would offer three Rak'at. I said, 'O Allah's Messenger! Do you go to bed before offering the Witr prayer?' He said, 'My eyes sleep, but my heart does not sleep.'"


Hadith Number 770.

Narrated by Sharik bin 'Abdullah bin Abi Namr: I heard Anas bin Malik (Radhi Allahu Anhu) telling us about the night when the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) was made to travel from the Ka'bah Masjid. Three persons (i.e. angels) came to the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) before he was divinely inspired was a Messenger), while he was sleeping in Al Masjid-ul-Haram. The first (of the three angels) said, "Which of them is he?" (*) The second said, "He is the best of them." That was all that happened then, and he did not see them till they came at another night and he perceived their presence with his heart, for the eyes of the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) were closed when he was asleep, but his heart was not asleep (not unconscious). This is characteristic of all the Prophets: Their eyes sleep but their hearts do not sleep. Then Jibril (Alayhi Salam) took charge of the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) and ascended along with him to the Heaven.

* The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) was sleeping between two persons then.

Narrated by 'Imran bin Husain (Radhi Allahu Anhu): That they were with the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) on a journey. They travelled the whole night, and when dawn approached, they took a rest and sleep overwhelmed them till the sun rose high in the sky. The first to get up was Abu Bakr. Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) used not to be awakened from his sleep, but he would wake up by himself. 'Umar woke up and then Abu Bakr sat by the side of the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam)'s head and started saying: Allahu-Akbar raising his voice till the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) woke up, (and after traveling for a while) he dismounted and led us in the morning prayer.

A man amongst the people failed to join us in the prayer. When the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) had finished the prayer, he asked (the man), "O so-and-so! What prevented you from offering the prayer with us?" He replied, "I am Junub," Alllah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) ordered him to perform Tayammam with clean earth. The man then offered the prayer. Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) ordered me and a few others to go ahead of him. We had become very thirsty. While we were on our way (looking for water), we came across a lady (riding an animal), hanging her legs between two water-skins. We asked her, "Where can we get water?" She replied, "Oh ! There is no water." We asked, "how far is your house from the water?" She replied, "A distance of a day and a night travel." We said, "Come on to Allah's Messenger, "She asked, "What is Allah's Messenger?"

So we brought her to Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) against her will, and she told him what she had told us before and added that she was the mother of orphans. So the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) ordered that her two water-skins be brought and he rubbed the mouths of the water-skins. As we were thirsty, we drank till we quenched our thirst and we were forty men. We also filled all our waterskins and other utensils with water, but we did not water the camels. The waterskin was so full that it was almost about to burst. The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) then said, "Bring what (foodstuff) you have." So some dates and pieces of bread were collected for the lady, and when she went to her people, she said, "I have met either the greatest magician or a Prophet as the people claim." So Allah guided the people of that village through that lady. She embraced Islam and they all embraced Islam.


Hadith Number 772.

Narrated by Anas (Radhi Allahu Anhu): A bowl of water was brought to the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) while he was at Az-Zawra. He placed his hand in it and the water started flowing among his fingers. All the people performed ablution (with that water). Qatada asked Anas, "How many people were you?" Anas replied, "Three hundred or nearly three-hundred."


Hadith Number 773.

Narrated by Anas bin Malik (Radhi Allahu Anhu): I saw Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) at the 'time when the Asr prayer was due. Then the people were searching for water for ablution but they could not find any. Then some water was brought to Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) and he placed his hand in the pot and ordered the people to perform the ablution with the water. I saw water flowing from underneath his fingers and the people started performing the ablution till all of them did it.

Hadith Number 774.

Narrated by Anas bin Malik (Radhi Allahu Anhu): The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) went out on one of his journeys with some of his companions. They went on walking till the time of the prayer became due. They could not find water to perform the ablution. One of them went away and brought a little amount of water in a pot. The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) took it and performed the ablution, and then stretched his four fingers on to the pot and said (to the people), "Get up to perform the ablution." They started performing the ablution till all of them did it, and they were seventy or so persons.


Hadith Number 775.

Narrated by Humaid: Anas bin Malik (Radhi Allahu Anhu) said, "Once the time of the prayer became due and the people whose houses were close to the Masjid went to their houses to perform ablution, while the others remained (sitting there). A stone pot containing water was brought to the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam), who wanted to put his hand in it, but It was too small for him to spread his hand in it, and so he had to bring his fingers together before putting his hand in the pot. Then all the people performed the ablution (with that water)." I asked Anas, "How many persons were they." He replied, "There were eighty men."


Hadith Number 776.

Narrated by Salim bin Abi Aj-J'ad: Jabir bin 'Abdullah (Radhi Allahu Anhuma) said, "The people became very thirsty on the day of Al-Hudaibiya (Treaty). A small pot containing some water was in front of the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) and when he had finished the ablution, the people rushed towards him. He asked, 'What is wrong with you?' They replied, 'We have no water either for performing ablution or for drinking except what is present in front of you.' So he placed his hand in that pot and the water started flowing among his fingers like springs. We all drank and performed ablution (from it)." I asked Jabir, "How many were you?" he replied, "Even if we had been one-hundred-thousand, it would have been sufficient for us, but we were fifteen hundred."


Hadith Number 777.

Narrated by Al-Bara (Radhi Allahu Anhu): We were one-thousand-and-four-hundred persons on the day of Al-Hudaibiya (Treaty), and (at) Al-Hudaibiya (there) was a well. We drew out its water not leaving even a single drop. The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) sat at the edge of the well and asked for some water with which he rinsed his mouth and then he threw it out into the well. We stayed for a short while and then drew water from the well and quenched our thirst, and even our riding animals drank water to their satisfaction.

Hadith Number 778.

Narrated by Anas bin Malik (Radhi Allahu Anhu): Abu Talha said to Um Sulaim (Radhi Allahu Anhuma), "I have noticed feebleness in the voice of Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) which I think, is caused by hunger. Have you got any food?" She said, "Yes." She brought out some loaves of barley and took out a veil belonging to her, and wrapped the bread in part of it and put it under my arm and wrapped part of the veil round me and sent me to Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam). I went carrying it and found Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) in the Masjid sitting with some people. When I stood there, Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) asked, "Has Abu Talha sent you?" I said, "Yes". He asked, "With some food? I said, "Yes" Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) then said to the men around him, "Get up!" He set out (accompanied by them) and I went ahead of them till I reached Abu Talha and told him (of the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam)'s visit). Abu Talha said, "O Um Sulaim! Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) is coming with the people and we have no food to feed them." She said, "Allah and His Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) know better." So Abu Talha went out to receive Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam). Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) came along with Abu Talha. Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "O Um Sulaim! Bring whatever you have." She brought the bread which Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) ordered to be broken into pieces. Um Sulaim poured on them some butter from an oilskin. Then Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) recited what Allah wished him to recite, and then said, "Let ten persons come (to share the meal)." Ten persons were admitted, ate their fill and went out. Then he again said, "Let another ten do the same." They were admitted, ate their fill and went out. Then he again said, '"'Let another ten persons (do the same.)" They were admitted, ate their fill and went out. Then he said, "Let another ten persons come." In short, all of them ate their fill, and they were seventy or eighty men.


Hadith Number 779.

Narrated by 'Abdullah (Radhi Allahu Anhu): We used to consider miracles as Allah's Blessings, but you people consider them to be a warning. Once we were with Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) on a journey, and we ran short of water. He said, "Bring the water remaining with you." The people brought a utensil containing a little water. He placed his hand in it and said, "Come to the blessed water, and the Blessing is from Allah." I saw the water flowing from among the fingers of Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) , and no doubt, we heard the meal glorifying Allah, when it was being eaten (by him).


Hadith Number 780.

Narrated by Jabir (Radhi Allahu Anhu): My father had died in debt. So I came to the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) and said, "My father (died) leaving unpaid debts, and I have nothing except the yield of his date palms; and their yield for many years will not cover his debts. So please come with me, so that the creditors may not misbehave with me." The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) went round one of the heaps of dates and invoked (Allah), and then did the same with another heap and sat on it and said, "Measure (for them)." He paid them their rights and what remained was as much as had been paid to them.

Hadith Number 781.

Narrated by 'Abdur-Rahman bin Abi Bakr (Radhi Allahu Anhuma): The companions of Suffa were poor people. The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) once said, "Whoever has food enough for two persons, should take a third one (from among them), and whoever has food enough for four persons, should take a fifth or a sixth (or said something similar)." Abu Bakr (Radhi Allahu Anhu) brought three persons while the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) took ten. And Abu Bakr with his three family member (who were I, my father and my mother) (the sub-narrator is in doubt whether 'Abdur-Rahman said, "My wife and my servant who was common for both my house and Abu Bakr's house.") Abu Bakr took his supper with the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) and stayed there till he offered the 'Isha' prayers. He returned and stayed till Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) took his supper. After a part of the night had passed, he returned to his house. His wife said to him, "What has detained you from your guests?" He said, "Have you served supper to them?" She said, "They refused (to take supper) until you come. They (i.e. some members of the household) presented the meal to them but they refused (to eat)" I went to hide myself and he said, "O Ghunthar!" He invoked Allah to cause my ears to be cut and he rebuked me. He then said (to them): Please eat!" and added, I will never eat the meal." By Allah, whenever we took a handful of the meal, the meal grew from underneath more than that handful till everybody ate to his satisfaction; yet the remaining food was more than the original meal. Abu Bakr saw that the food was as much or more than the original amount. He called his wife, "O sister of Bani Firas!" She said, "O pleasure of my eyes. The food has been tripled in quantity." Abu Bakr (Radhi Allahu Anhu) then started eating thereof and said, "It (i.e. my oath not to eat) was because of Shaitan." He took a handful from it, and carried the rest to the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam). So that food was with the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam). There was a treaty between us and some people, and when the period of that treaty had elapsed, he divided us into twelve groups, each being headed by a man. Allah knows how many men were under the command of each leader. Anyhow, the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) surely sent a leader with each group. Then all of them ate of that meal.


Hadith Number 782.

Narrated by Anas (Radhi Allahu Anhu): Once during the lifetime of Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam), the people of Al-Madinah suffered from drought. So while the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) was delivering a sermon on a Friday a man got up saying, "O Allah's Messenger! The horses and sheep have perished. Will you invoke Allah to bless us with rain?" The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) lifted both his hands and invoked. The sky at that time was as clear as glass. Suddenly a wind blew, raising clouds that gathered together, and it started raining heavily. We came out (of the Masjid) wading through the flowing water till we reached our homes. It went on raining till the next Friday, when the same man or some other man stood up and said, "O Allah's Messenger! The houses have collapsed; please invoke Allah to withhold the rain." On that the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) smiled and said, "O Allah, (let it rain) around us and not on us." I then looked at the clouds to see them separating forming a sort of a crown round Al-Madinah.

Hadith Number 783.

Narrated by Ibn Umar (Radhi Allahu Anhuma): The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) used to deliver his sermons while standing beside a trunk of a date-palm. When he had the pulpit made, he used it instead. The trunk started crying and the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) went to it, rubbing his hand over it (to stop its crying).


Hadith Number 784.

Narrated by Jabir bin 'Abdullah (Radhi Allahu Anhuma): The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) used to stand by a tree or a date-palm on Friday. Then an Ansari woman or man said. "O Allah's Messenger! Shall we make a pulpit for you?" He replied, "If you wish." So they made a pulpit for him and when it was Friday, he proceeded towards the pulpit (for delivering the sermon). The date-palm cried like a child! The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) descended (the pulpit) and embraced it while it continued moaning like a child being quietened. The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "It was crying for (missing) what it used to hear of religious knowledge given near to it."


Hadith Number 785.

Narrated by Anas bin Malik (Radhi Allahu Anhu): That he heard Jabir bin 'Abdullah saying, "The roof of the Masjid was built over trunks of date-palms working as pillars. When the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) delivered a sermon, he used to stand by one of those trunks till the pulpit was made for him, and he used it instead. Then we heard the trunk sending a sound like of a pregnant she-camel till the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) came to it, and put his hand over it, then it became quiet."


Hadith Number 786.

Narrated by Hudhaifa (Radhi Allahu Anhu): Once 'Umar bin Al-Khattab (Radhi Allahu Anhu) said, said, "Who amongst you remembers the statement of Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) regarding the afflictions?" Hudhaifa replied, "I remember what he said exactly." 'Umar said. "Tell (us), you are really a daring man!'' Hudhaifa said, "Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, 'A man's afflictions (i.e. wrong deeds) concerning his relation to his family, his property and his neighbors are expiated by his prayers, giving in charity and enjoining what is good and forbidding what is evil.'" 'Umar (Radhi Allahu Anhu) said, "I don't mean these afflictions but the afflictions that will be heaving up and down like waves of the sea." Hudhaifa (Radhi Allahu Anhu) replied, "O chief of the believers! You need not fear those (afflictions) as there is a closed door between you and them." 'Umar asked, "Will that door be opened or broken?" Hudhaifa replied, "No, it will be broken." 'Umar said, "Then it is very likely that the door will not be closed again." Later on the people asked Hudhaifa, "Did 'Umar know what that door meant?" He said. "Yes, 'Umar knew it as everyone knows that there will be night before the tomorrow morning. I narrated to 'Umar an authentic narration, not lies." We dared not ask Hudhaifa; therefore we requested Masruq who asked him, "What does the door stand for?" He said, "'Umar."


Hadith Number 787.

Narrated by Abu Hurairah (Radhi Allahu Anhu) : The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "The Hour will not be established till you fight a nation wearing hairy shoes, and till you fight the Turks, who will have small eyes, red faces and flat noses; and their faces will be like flat shields. And you will find that the best people are those who hate responsibility of ruling most of all till they are chosen to be the rulers. (*) And the people are of different natures: The best in the pre-lslamic period are the best in Islam. A time will come when any of you will love to see me rather than to have his family and property doubled."

* This means the people who do not like to be rulers for fear of not being just. But when the people elect them for their piety and righteousness, they rule justly and no longer hate to be rulers.

Narrated by Abu Hurairah (Radhi Allahu Anhu): The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "The Hour will not be established till you fight with the Khudh and the Kirman from among the non-Arabs. They will be of red faces, flat noses and small eyes; their faces will look like flat shields, and their shoes will be of hair."


Hadith Number 789.

Narrated by Abu Hurairah (Radhi Allahu Anhu): I enjoyed the company of Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) for three years, and during the other years of my life, never was I so anxious to understand the (Prophet’s (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam)) traditions as I was during those three years. I heard him saying, beckoning with his hand in this way, "Before the Hour you will fight with people who will have hairy shoes and live in Al-Bariz." (Sufyan, the sub-narrator once said, "And they are the people of Al-Bazir.")


Hadith Number 790.

Narrated by 'Umar bin Taghlib (Radhi Allahu Anhu): I heard Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) saying, "Near the Hour you will fight with people who will wear hairy shoes; and you will also fight people with flat faces like shields."

Hadith Number 792.

Narrated by Abu Sa'id Al-Khudri (Radhi Allahu Anhu): The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "A time will come when the people will wage holy war, and it will be asked, 'Is there any amongst you who has enjoyed the company of Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam)?' They will say: 'Yes.' And then victory will be bestowed upon them. They will wage holy war again, and it will be asked: 'Is there any among you who has enjoyed the company of the companions of Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam)?' They will say: 'Yes.' And then victory will be bestowed on them."

Hadith Number 793.

Narrated by 'Adi bin Hatim (Radhi Allahu Anhu): While I was in the city of the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam), a man came and complained to him (the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam)) of destitution and poverty. Then another man came and complained of robbery (by highwaymen). The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "Adi! Have you been to Al-Hira?" I said, "I haven't been to it, but I was informed about it." He said, "If you should live for a long time, you will certainly see that a lady in a Howdah traveling from Al-Hira will (safely reach Makkah and) perform the Tawaf of the Ka'bah, fearing none but Allah." I said to myself, "What will happen to the robbers of the tribe of Tai who have spread evil through out the country?" The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) further said. "If you should live long, the treasures of Khosrau will be opened (and taken as spoils)." I asked, "You mean Khosrau, son of Hurmuz?" He said, "Khosrau, son of Hurmuz; and if you should live long, you will see that one will carry a handful of gold or silver and go out looking for a person to accept it from him, but will find none to accept it from him. And any of you, when meeting Allah, will meet Him without needing an interpreter between him and Allah to interpret for him, and Allah will say to him: 'Didn't I send a messenger to teach you?' He will say: 'Yes.' Allah will say: 'Didn't I give you wealth and do you favors?' He will say: 'Yes.' Then he will look to his right and see nothing but Hell, and look to his left and see nothing but Hell."

'Adi (Radhi Allahu Anhu) further said: I heard the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) saying, "Save yourself from the (Hell) Fire even with half a date (to be given in charity) and if you do not find a half date, then with a good pleasant word." 'Adi added: (later on) I saw a lady in a Howdah traveling from Al-Hira till she performed the Tawaf of the Ka'bah, fearing none but Allah. And I was one of those who opened (conquered) the treasures of Khosrau, son of Hurmuz. If you should live long, you will see what the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) Abu-l-Qasim had said: 'A person will come out with a handful of gold etc.


Hadith Number 794.

Narrated by 'Adi (Radhi Allahu Anhu): As above (i.e. Hadith No. 793).


Hadith Number 795.

Narrated by 'Uqba bin 'Amr (Radhi Allahu Anhu): The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) once came out and offered the funeral prayer for the martyrs of Uhud, and proceeded to the pulpit and said, "I shall be your predecessor and a witness on you, and I am really looking at my sacred Fount now, and no doubt, I have been given the keys of the treasures of the world. By Allah, I am not afraid that you will worship others along with Allah, but I am afraid that you will envy and fight one another for worldly fortunes."


Hadith Number 796.

Narrated by Usama (Radhi Allahu Anhu): Once the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) stood on one of the high buildings (of Al-Madinah) and said, "Do you see what I see? I see affliction pouring among your hours like raindrops."


Hadith Number 797.

Narrated by Zainab bint Jahsh (Radhi Allahu Anha): That the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) came to her in a state of fear saying, "None has the right to be worshiped but Allah! Woe to the Arabs because of evil that has come near. Today a hole has been made in the wall of Gog and Magog as large as this." pointing with two of his fingers making a circle. Zainab said, "I said, 'O Allah's Messenger! Shall we be destroyed though amongst us there are pious people? ' He said, 'Yes, if evil increases."

Narrated Um Salama (Radhi Allahu Anha): The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) woke up and said, "Glorified be Allah: What great (how many) treasures have been sent down, and what great (how many) afflictions have been sent down!"


Hadith Number 798.

Narrated by Sa'sa'a : Abu Said Al-Khudr (Radhi Allahu Anhu) said to me, "I notice that you like sheep and you keep them; so take care of them and their food, for I have heard Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) saying, 'A time will come upon the people when the best of a Muslim's property will be sheep, which he will take to the tops of mountains and to the places of rain-falls to run away with his religion in order to save it from afflictions.'"


Hadith Number 799.

Narrated by Abu Hurairah (Radhi Allahu Anhu): Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "There will be afflictions (and at the time) the sitting person will be better than the standing one, and the standing one will be better than the walking, and the walking will be better than the running. And whoever will look towards those afflictions, they will overtake him, and whoever will find a refuge or a shelter, should take refuge in it." The same narration is reported by Abu Bakr (Radhi Allahu Anhu), with the addition, "(The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said), 'Among the prayers there is a prayer the missing of which will be to one like losing one's family and property." (*)

* The prayer meant here is the 'Asr prayer.

As Salamu Alaikum


Hadith Number 800.

Narrated by Ibn Mas'ud (Radhi Allahu Anhu): The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "Soon others will be preferred to you, and there will be things which you will not like." The companions of the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) asked, "O Allah's Messenger! What do you order us to do (in this case)? " He said, "(I order you) to give the rights that are on you and to ask your rights from Allah."


Hadith Number 801.

Narrated by Abu Hurairah (Radhi Allahu Anhu): Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "This branch from Quraish will ruin the people." The companions of the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) asked, "What do you order us to do (then)?" He said, "I would suggest that the people keep away from them."


Hadith Number 802.

Narrated by Sa'id Al-Umawi: I was with Marwan and Abu Hurairah (Radhi Allahu Anhuma) and heard Abu Hurairah (Radhi Allahu Anhu) saying, "I heard the trustworthy, truly inspired one (i.e. the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam)) saying, 'The destruction of my followers will be brought about by the hands of some youngsters from Quraish." Marwan asked, "Youngsters?" Abu Hurairah (Radhi Allahu Anhu) said, "If you wish, I would name them: They are the children of so-and-so and the children of so-and-so."


Hadith Number 803.

Narrated by Hudhaifa bin Al-Yaman (Radhi Allahu Anhu): The people used to ask Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) about good, but I used to ask him about evil for fear that it might overtake me. Once I said, "O Allah's Messenger! We were in ignorance and in evil and Allah has bestowed upon us the present good; will there by any evil after this good?" He said, "Yes." I asked, "Will there be good after that evil?" He said, "Yes, but it would be tained with Dakhan (i.e. little evil)." I asked, "What will its Dakhan be?" He said, "There will be some people who will lead (people) according to principles other than my tradition. You will see their actions and disapprove of them." I said, "Will there by any evil after that good?" He said, "Yes, there will be some people who will invite others to the doors of Hell, and whoever accepts their invitation to it will be thrown in it (by them)." I said, "O Allah's Messenger! Describe those people to us." He said, "They will belong to us and speak our language" I asked, "What do you order me to do if such a thing should take place in my life?" He said, "Adhere to the group of Muslims and their Chief." I asked, "If there is neither a group (of Muslims) nor a chief (what shall I do)?" He said, "Keep away from all those different sects, even if you had to bite (i.e. eat) the root of a tree, till you meet Allah while you are still in that state."


Hadith Number 804.

Narrated by Hudhaifa (Radhi Allahu Anhu): My companions learned (something about) good (through asking the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) while I learned (something about) evil.

Narrated by Abu Hurairah (Radhi Allahu Anhu) : The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "The Hour will not be established till there is a war between two groups among whom there will be a great number of casualties, though the claims (or religion) of both of them will be one and the same. And the Hour will not be established till there appear about thirty liars, all of whom will be claiming to be the messengers of Allah."

As Salamu Alaikum

Hadith Number 807.

Narrated by Abu Sa'id Al-Khudri (Radhi Allahu Anhu): While we were with Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) who was distributing (i.e. some property), there came Dhu-l-Khuwaisira, a man from the tribe of Bani Tamim and said, "O Allah's Messenger! Do Justice." The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "Woe to you! Who could do justice if I did not? I would be a desperate loser if I did not do justice." 'Umar (Radhi Allahu Anhu) said, "O Allah's Messenger! Allow me to chop his head off." The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "Leave him, for he has companions who pray and fast in such a way that you will consider your fasting negligible in comparison to theirs. They recite Qur'an but it does not go beyond their throats (i.e. they do not act on it) and they will desert Islam as an arrow goes through a victim's body, so that the hunter, on looking at the arrow's blade, would see nothing on it; he would look at its Risaf and see nothing: he would look at its Nadhi and see nothing, and he would look at its Qudhadh (*) and see nothing (neither meat nor blood), for the arrow has been too fast even for the blood and excretions to smear. The sign by which they will be recognized is that among them there will be a black man, one of whose arms will resemble a woman's breast or a lump of meat moving loosely. Those people will appear when there will be differences amongst the people." I testify that I heard this narration from Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) and I testify that 'Ali bin Abi Talib (Radhi Allahu Anhu) fought with such people, (**) and I was in his company. He ordered that the man (described by the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam)) should be looked for. The man was brought and I looked at him and noticed that he looked exactly as the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) had described him.

* Risaf, Nadhi and Qudhadh are the names of the different parts of an arrow.

** This example means that those people, in spite of their efforts in the way of worshipping Allah, will gain nothing because of their insincerity.




Hadith Number 808.

Narrated by 'Ali (Radhi Allahu Anhu): I relate the traditions of Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) to you for I would rather fall from the sky than attribute something to him falsely. But when I tell you a thing which is between you and me, then no doubt, war is guile. I heard Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) saying, "In the last days of this world there will appear some young foolish people who will use (in their claim) the best speech of all people (i.e. the Qur'an) and they will abandon Islam as an arrow going through the game. Their belief will not go beyond their throats (i.e. they will have practically no belief), so wherever you meet them, kill them, for he who kills them shall get a reward on the Day of Resurrection."


Hadith Number 809.

Narrated by Khabbab bin Al-Arat (Radhi Allahu Anhu): We complained to Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) (of the persecution inflicted on us by the infidels) while he was sitting in the shade of the Ka'bah, leaning over his Burd (i.e. covering sheet). We said to him, "Would you seek help for us? Would you pray to Allah for us?" He said, "Among the nations before you a (believing) man would be put in a ditch that was dug for him, and a saw would be put over his head and he would be cut into two pieces; yet that (torture) would not make him give up his religion. His body would be combed with iron combs that would remove his flesh from the bones and nerves, yet that would not make him abandon his religion. By Allah, this religion (i.e. Islam) will prevail till a traveler from Sana (in Yemen) to Hadrarmaut will fear none but Allah, or a wolf as regards his sheep, but you (people) are hasty.


Hadith Number 810.

Narrated by Anas bin Malik (Radhi Allahu Anhu): The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) noticed the absence of Thabit bin Qais (Radhi Allahu Anhu). A man said, "O Allah's Messenger! I shall bring you his news." So he went to him and saw him sitting in his house drooping his head (sadly). He asked Thabit, "What's the matter?" Thabit replied, "An evil situation: A man used to raise his voice over the voice of the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) and so all his good deeds have been annulled and he is from the people of Hell." (*) The man went back and told the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) that Thabit had said so-and-so. (The sub-narrator, Musa bin Anas said, "The man went to Thabit again with glad tidings)." The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said to him, "Go and say to Thabit: 'You are not from the people of Fire, but from the people of Paradise."

* Thabit is talking about himself using the third person singular instead of the first person.

As Salamu Alaikum

Hadith Number 811.

Narrated by Al-Bara bin 'Azib (Radhi Allahu Anhu): A man recited Surat-al-Kahf (in his prayer) and in the house there was a (riding) animal which got frightened and started jumping. The man finished his prayer with Taslim, but behold! A mist or a cloud hovered over him. He informed the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) of that and the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "O so-and-so! Recite, for this (mist or cloud) was a sign of peace descending for the recitation of Qur’an."


Hadith Number 812.

Narrated by Al-Bara bin 'Azib (Radhi Allahu Anhu): Abu Bakr (Radhi Allahu Anhu) came to my father who was at home and purchased a saddle from him. He said to 'Azib. "Tell your son to carry it with me." So I carried it with him and my father followed us so as to take the price (of the saddle). My father said, "O Abu Bakr! Tell me what happened to you on your night journey with Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) (during Migration)." He said, "Yes, we travelled the whole night and also the next day till midday, when nobody could be seen on the way (because of the severe heat). Then there appeared a long rock having shade beneath it, and the sunshine had not come to it yet. So we dismounted there and I levelled a place and covered it with an animal hide or dry grass for the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) to sleep on (for a while). I then said, 'Sleep, O Allah's Messenger, and I will guard you.' So he slept and I went out to guard him.

Suddenly I saw a shepherd coming with his sheep to that rock with the same intention we had when we came to it. I asked (him). 'To whom do you belong, O boy?' He replied, 'I belong to a man from Al-Madinah or Makkah.' I said, 'Do your sheep have milk?' He said, 'Yes.' I said, 'Will you milk for us?' He said, 'Yes.' He caught hold of a sheep and I asked him to clean its teat from dust, hairs and dirt. (The sub-narrator said that he saw Al-Bara striking one of his hands with the other, demonstrating how the shepherd removed the dust.) The shepherd milked a little milk in a wooden container and I had a leather container which I carried for the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) to drink and perform the ablution from. I went to the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam), hating to wake him up, but when I reached there, the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) had already awakened; so I poured water over the middle part of the milk container, till the milk was cold.

Then I said, 'Drink, O Allah's Messenger!' He drank till I was pleased. Then he asked, 'Has the time for our departure come?' I said, 'Yes.' So we departed after midday. Suraqa bin Malik followed us and I said, 'We have been discovered, O Allah's Messenger!' He said, Don't grieve for Allah is with us.' The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) invoked evil on him (i.e. Suraqa) and so the legs of his horse sank into the earth up to its belly. (The subnarrator, Zuhair is not sure whether Abu Bakr said, "(It sank) into solid earth.") Suraqa said, 'I see that you have invoked evil on me. Please invoke good on me, and by Allah, I will cause those who are seeking after you to return.' The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) invoked good on him and he was saved. Then, whenever he met somebody on the way, he would say, 'I have looked for him here in vain.' So he caused whomever he met to return. Thus Suraqa fulfilled his promise."


Hadith Number 813.

Narrated by Ibn 'Abbas (Radhi Allahu Anhuma): The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) paid a visit to a sick bedouin. The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) when visiting a patient used to say, "No harm will befall you! May Allah cure you! May Allah cure you!" So the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said to the bedouin. "No harm will befall you. May Allah cure you!" The bedouin said, "You say, may Allah cure me? No, for it is a fever which boils in (the body of) an old man, and will lead him to the grave." The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "Yes, then may it be as you say."


Hadith Number 814.

Narrated by Anas (Radhi Allahu Anhu): There was a Christian who embraced Islam and read Surat-al-Baqara and Al-Imran, and he used to write (the revelations) for the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam). Later on he returned to Christianity again and he used to say: "Muhammad knows nothing but what I have written for him." Then Allah caused him to die, and the people buried him, but in the morning they saw that the earth had thrown his body out. They said, "This is the act of Muhammad and his companions. They dug the grave of our companion and took his body out of it because he had run away from them." They again dug the grave deeply for him, but in the morning they again saw that the earth had thrown his body out. They said, "This is an act of Muhammad and his companions. They dug the grave of our companion and threw his body outside it, for he had run away from them." They dug the grave for him as deep as they could, but in the morning they again saw that the earth had thrown his body out. So they believed that what had befallen him was not done by human beings and had to leave him thrown (on the ground).
