Whenever the Prophet asked permission to enter, he knocked the door
thrice with greeting and whenever he spoke a sentence (said a thing)
he used to repeat it thrice. (See Hadith No. 261, Vol. 8).
Volume 1, Book 3, Number 95
Whenever the Prophet spoke a sentence (said a thing), he used to
repeat it thrice so that the people could understand it properly
from him and whenever he asked permission to enter, (he knocked the
door) thrice with greeting.

Narrated 'Abdullah bin 'Amr:
Once Allah's Apostle remained behind us in a journey. He joined us
while we were performing ablution for the 'Asr prayer which was
over-due. We were just passing wet hands over our feet (not washing
them properly) so the Prophet addressed us in a loud voice and said
twice or thrice, "Save your heels from the fire."

Narrated Abu Burda's father:
Allah's Apostle said "Three persons will have a double reward:
1. A Person from the people of the scriptures who believed in his
prophet (Jesus or Moses) and then believed in the Prophet Muhammad
(i .e. has embraced Islam).
2. A slave who discharges his duties to Allah and his master.
3. A master of a woman-slave who teaches her good manners and
educates her in the best possible way (the religion) and manumits
her and then marries her."

Narrated Ibn 'Abbas:
Once Allah's Apostle came out while Bilal was accompanying him. He
went towards the women thinking that they had not heard him (i.e.
his sermon). So he preached them and ordered them to pay alms.
(Hearing that) the women started giving alms; some donated their
ear-rings, some gave their rings and Bilal was collecting them in
the corner of his garment.

Narrated Abu Huraira:
I said: "O Allah's Apostle! Who will be the luckiest person, who
will gain your intercession on the Day of Resurrection?" Allah's
Apostle said: O Abu Huraira! "I have thought that none will ask me
about it before you as I know your longing for the (learning of)
Hadiths. The luckiest person who will have my intercession on the
Day of Resurrection will be the one who said sincerely from the
bottom of his heart "None has the right to be worshipped but Allah."
And 'Umar bin 'Abdul 'Aziz wrote to Abu Bakr bin Hazm, "Look for the
knowledge of Hadith and get it written, as I am afraid that
religious knowledge will vanish and the religious learned men will
pass away (die). Do not accept anything save the Hadiths of the
Prophet. Circulate knowledge and teach the ignorant, for knowledge
does not vanish except when it is kept secretly (to oneself)."
Volume 1, Book 3, Number 99
Narrated Abdullah Ibn Dinar:
also narrates the same (above-mentioned statement) as has been
narrated by 'Umar bin 'Abdul 'Aziz up to "The religious scholar
(learned men) will pass away (die)."

Narrated 'Abdullah bin 'Amr bin Al' As:
I heard Allah's Apostle saying, "Allah does not take away the
knowledge, by taking it away from (the hearts of) the people, but
takes it away by the death of the religious learned men till when
none of the (religious learned men) remains, people will take as
their leaders ignorant persons who when consulted will give their
verdict without knowledge. So they will go astray and will lead the

Narrated Abu Said Al-Khudri:
Some women requested the Prophet to fix a day for them as the men
were taking all his time. On that he promised them one day for
religious lessons and commandments. Once during such a lesson the
Prophet said, "A woman whose three children die will be shielded by
them from the Hell fire." On that a woman asked, "If only two die?"
He replied, "Even two (will shield her from the Hell-fire)."

the three children referred to in the above mentioned Hadith as not
having reached the age of committing sins (i.e. age of puberty) .
Volume 1, Book 3, Number 103
Narrated Ibn Abu Mulaika:
Whenever 'Aisha (the wife of the Prophet) heard anything which she
did not understand, she used to ask again till she understood it
completely. Aisha said: "Once the Prophet said, "Whoever will be
called to account (about his deeds on the Day of Resurrection) will
surely be punished." I said, "Doesn't Allah say: "He surely will
receive an easy reckoning." (84.8) The Prophet replied, "This means
only the presentation of the accounts but whoever will be argued
about his account, will certainly be ruined."

Abu Shuraih said, "When 'Amr bin Said was sending the troops to
Mecca (to fight 'Abdullah bin Az-Zubair) I said to him, 'O chief!
Allow me to tell you what the Prophet said on the day following the
conquests of Mecca. My ears heard and my heart comprehended, and I
saw him with my own eyes, when he said it. He glorified and praised
Allah and then said, "Allah and not the people has made Mecca a
sanctuary. So anybody who has belief in Allah and the Last Day (i.e.
a Muslim) should neither shed blood in it nor cut down its trees. If
anybody argues that fighting is allowed in Mecca as Allah's Apostle
did fight (in Mecca), tell him that Allah gave permission to His
Apostle, but He did not give it to you. The Prophet added: Allah
allowed me only for a few hours on that day (of the conquest) and
today (now) its sanctity is the same (valid) as it was before. So it
is incumbent upon those who are present to convey it (this
information) to those who are absent." Abu- Shuraih was asked, "What
did 'Amr reply?" He said 'Amr said, "O Abu Shuraih! I know better
than you (in this respect). Mecca does not give protection to one
who disobeys (Allah) or runs after committing murder, or theft (and
takes refuge in Mecca).

Narrated Abu Bakra:
The Prophet said. No doubt your blood, property, the sub-narrator
Muhammad thought that Abu Bakra had also mentioned and your honor
(chastity), are sacred to one another as is the sanctity of this day
of yours in this month of yours. It is incumbent on those who are
present to inform those who are absent." (Muhammad the Subnarrator
used to say, "Allah's Apostle told the truth.") The Prophet repeated
twice: "No doubt! Haven't I conveyed Allah's message to you.

Abu Juhaifa said, "I asked Ali, 'Have you got any book (which has
been revealed to the Prophet apart from the Qur'an)?' 'Ali replied,
'No, except Allah's Book or the power of understanding which has
been bestowed (by Allah) upon a Muslim or what is (written) in this
sheet of paper (with me).' Abu Juhaifa said, "I asked, 'What is
(written) in this sheet of paper?' Ali replied, it deals with The
Diyya (compensation (blood money) paid by the killer to the
relatives of the victim), the ransom for the releasing of the
captives from the hands of the enemies, and the law that no Muslim
should be killed in Qisas (equality in punishment) for the killing
of (a disbeliever).
Volume 1, Book 3, Number 112
Narrated Abu Huraira:
In the year of the Conquest of Mecca, the tribe of Khuza'a killed a
man from the tribe of Bani Laith in revenge for a killed person,
belonging to them. They informed the Prophet about it. So he rode
his Rahila (she-camel for riding) and addressed the people saying,
"Allah held back the killing from Mecca. (The sub-narrator is in
doubt whether the Prophet said "elephant or killing," as the Arabic
words standing for these words have great similarity in shape), but
He (Allah) let His Apostle and the believers over power the infidels
of Mecca. Beware! (Mecca is a sanctuary) Verily! Fighting in Mecca
was not permitted for anyone before me nor will it be permitted for
anyone after me. It (war) in it was made legal for me for few hours
or so on that day. No doubt it is at this moment a sanctuary, it is
not allowed to uproot its thorny shrubs or to uproot its trees or to
pick up its Luqatt (fallen things) except by a person who will look
for its owner (announce it publicly). And if somebody is killed,
then his closest relative has the right to choose one of the two--
the blood money (Diyya) or retaliation having the killer killed. In
the meantime a man from Yemen came and said, "O Allah's Apostle! Get
that written for me." The Prophet ordered his companions to write
that for him. Then a man from Quraish said, "Except Al-Iqhkhir (a
type of grass that has good smell) O Allah's Apostle, as we use it
in our houses and graves." The Prophet said, "Except Al-Idhkhiri.e.
Al-Idhkhir is allowed to be plucked."

Narrated Abu Huraira:
There is none among the companions of the Prophet who has narrated
more Hadiths than I except 'Abdallah bin Amr (bin Al-'As) who used
to write them and I never did the same.

Narrated 'Ubaidullah bin 'Abdullah:
Ibn 'Abbas said, "When the ailment of the Prophet became worse, he
said, 'Bring for me (writing) paper and I will write for you a
statement after which you will not go astray.' But 'Umar said, 'The
Prophet is seriously ill, and we have got Allah's Book with us and
that is sufficient for us.' But the companions of the Prophet
differed about this and there was a hue and cry. On that the Prophet
said to them, 'Go away (and leave me alone). It is not right that
you should quarrel in front of me." Ibn 'Abbas came out saying, "It
was most unfortunate (a great disaster) that Allah's Apostle was
prevented from writing that statement for them because of their
disagreement and noise. (Note: It is apparent from this Hadith that
Ibn 'Abbes had witnessed the event and came out saying this
statement. The truth is not so, for Ibn 'Abbas used to say this
statement on narrating the Hadith and he had not witnessed the event
personally. See Fath Al-Bari Vol. 1, p.220 footnote.) (See Hadith
No. 228, Vol. 4).

One night Allah's Apostle got up and said, "Subhan Allah! How many

dwellings (his wives) up (for prayers). A well-dressed (soul) in
this world may be naked in the Hereafter. "

Narrated 'Abdullah bin 'Umar:
Once the Prophet led us in the 'Isha' prayer during the last days of

the surface of the earth tonight will be living after the completion
of one hundred years from this night."

Narrated Ibn 'Abbas:
I stayed overnight in the house of my aunt Maimuna bint Al-Harith
(the wife of the Prophet ) while the Prophet was there with her
during her night turn. The Prophet offered the 'Isha' prayer (in the
mosque), returned home and after having prayed four Rakat, he slept.
Later on he got up at night and then asked whether the boy (or he
used a similar word) had slept? Then he got up for the prayer and I
stood up by his left side but he made me stand to his right and
offered five Rakat followed by two more Rakat. Then he slept and I
heard him snoring and then (after a while) he left for the (Fajr)

Narrated Abu Huraira:
People say that I have narrated many Hadiths (The Prophet's
narrations). Had it not been for two verses in the Qur'an, I would
not have narrated a single Hadith, and the verses are:
"Verily those who conceal the clear sign and the guidance which We
have sent down . . . (up to) Most Merciful." (2:159-160). And no
doubt our Muhajir (emigrant) brothers used to be busy in the market
with their business (bargains) and our Ansari brothers used to be
busy with their property (agriculture). But I (Abu Huraira) used to
stick to Allah's Apostle contented with what will fill my stomach
and I used to attend that which they used not to attend and I used
to memorize that which they used not to memorize.

Narrated Abu Huraira:
I said to Allah's Apostle "I hear many narrations (Hadiths) from you
but I forget them." Allah's Apostle said, "Spread your Rida'
(garment)." I did accordingly and then he moved his hands as if
filling them with something (and emptied them in my Rida') and then
said, "Take and wrap this sheet over your body." I did it and after
that I never forgot any thing.

The Prophet said to me during Hajjat-al-Wida': Let the people keep

(become infidels) revert to disbelief after me by striking the necks
(cutting the throats) of one another (killing each other)."

Narrated Said bin Jubair:
I said to Ibn 'Abbas, "Nauf-Al-Bakali claims that Moses (the
companion of Khadir) was not the Moses of Bani Israel but he was
another Moses." Ibn 'Abbas remarked that the enemy of Allah (Nauf)
was a liar.
Volume 1, Book 3, Number 124
Narrated Ubai bin Ka'b:
The Prophet said, "Once the Prophet Moses stood up and addressed
Bani Israel. He was asked, "Who is the most learned man amongst the
people. He said, "I am the most learned." Allah admonished Moses as
he did not attribute absolute knowledge to Him (Allah). So Allah
inspired to him "At the junction of the two seas there is a slave
amongst my slaves who is more learned than you." Moses said, "O my
Lord! How can I meet him?" Allah said: Take a fish in a large basket
(and proceed) and you will find him at the place where you will lose
the fish. So Moses set out along with his (servant) boy, Yusha' bin
Nuin and carried a fish in a large basket till they reached a rock,
where they laid their heads (i.e. lay down) and slept. The fish came
out of the basket and it took its way into the sea as in a tunnel.
So it was an amazing thing for both Moses and his (servant) boy.
They proceeded for the rest of that night and the following day.
When the day broke, Moses said to his (servant) boy: "Bring us our
early meal. No doubt, we have suffered much fatigue in this
journey." Moses did not get tired till he passed the place about
which he was told. There the (servant) boy told Moses, "Do you
remember when we betook ourselves to the rock, I indeed forgot the
fish." Moses remarked, "That is what we have been seeking. So they
went back retracing their foot-steps, till they reached the rock.
There they saw a man covered with a garment (or covering himself
with his own garment). Moses greeted him. Al-Khadir replied saying,
"How do people greet each other in your land?" Moses said, "I am
Moses." He asked, "The Moses of Bani Israel?" Moses replied in the
affirmative and added, "May I follow you so that you teach me of
that knowledge which you have been taught." Al-Khadir replied,
"Verily! You will not be able to remain patient with me, O Moses! I
have some of the knowledge of Allah which He has taught me and which
you do not know, while you have some knowledge which Allah has
taught you which I do not know." Moses said, "Allah willing, you
will find me patient and I will not disobey you in aught. So both of
them set out walking along the sea-shore, as they did not have a
boat. In the meantime a boat passed by them and they requested the
crew of the boat to take them on board. The crew recognized
Al-Khadir and took them on board without fare. Then a sparrow came
and stood on the edge of the boat and dipped its beak once or twice
in the sea. Al-Khadir said: "O Moses! My knowledge and your
knowledge have not decreased Allah's knowledge except as much as
this sparrow has decreased the water of the sea with its beak."
Al-Khadir went to one of the planks of the boat and plucked it out.
Moses said, "These people gave us a free lift but you have broken
their boat and scuttled it so as to drown its people." Al-Khadir
replied, "Didn't I tell you that you will not be able to remain
patient with me." Moses said, "Call me not to account for what I
forgot." The first (excuse) of Moses was that he had forgotten. Then
they proceeded further and found a boy playing with other boys.
Al-Khadir took hold of the boy's head from the top and plucked it
out with his hands (i.e. killed him). Moses said, "Have you killed
an innocent soul who has killed none." Al-Kha,dir replied, "Did I
not tell you that you cannot remain patient with me?" Then they both
proceeded till when they came to the people of a town, they asked
them for food, but they refused to entertain them. Then they found
there a wall on the point of collapsing. Al-Khadir repaired it with
his own hands. Moses said, "If you had wished, surely you could have
taken wages for it." Al-Khadir replied, "This is the parting between
you and me." The Prophet added, "May Allah be Merciful to Moses!
Would that he could have been more patient to learn more about his
story with Al-Khadir. "
Volume 1, Book 3, Number 125
Narrated Abu Musa:
A man came to the Prophet and asked, "O Allah's Apostle! What kind
of fighting is in Allah's cause? (I ask this), for some of us fight
because of being enraged and angry and some for the sake of his
pride and haughtiness." The Prophet raised his head (as the
questioner was standing) and said, "He who fights so that Allah's
Word (Islam) should be superior, then he fights in Allah's cause."
Volume 1, Book 3, Number 126
Narrated 'Abdullah bin 'Amar:
I saw the Prophet near the Jamra and the people were asking him
questions (about religious problems). A man asked, "O Allah's
Apostle! I have slaughtered the Hadi (animal) before doing the
Rami." The Prophet replied, "Do the Rami (now) and there is no
harm." Another person asked, "O Allah's Apostle! I got my head
shaved before slaughtering the animal." The Prophet replied, "Do the
slaughtering (now) and there is no harm." So on that day, when the
Prophet was asked about anything as regards the ceremonies of Hajj
performed before or after its due time his reply was, "Do it (now)
and there is no harm."

While I was going with the Prophet through the ruins of Medina and
he was reclining on a date-palm leaf stalk, some Jews passed by.
Some of them said to the others: Ask him (the Prophet) about the
spirit. Some of them said that they should not ask him that question
as he might give a reply which would displease them. But some of
them insisted on asking, and so one of them stood up and asked, "O
Aba-l-Qasim ! What is the spirit?" The Prophet remained quiet. I
thought he was being inspired Divinely. So I stayed till that state
of the Prophet (while being inspired) was over. The Prophet then
said, "And they ask you (O Muhammad) concerning the spirit --Say:
The spirit -- its knowledge is with my Lord. And of knowledge you
(mankind) have been given only a little)." (17.85)

Ibn Az-Zubair said to me, "Aisha used to tell you secretly a number
of things. What did she tell you about the Ka'ba?" I replied, "She
told me that once the Prophet said, 'O 'Aisha! Had not your people
been still close to the pre-Islamic period of ignorance
(infidelity)! I would have dismantled the Ka'ba and would have made
two doors in it; one for entrance and the other for exit." Later on
Ibn Az-Zubair did the same.

and Sa'daik. O Allah's Apostle!" Again the Prophet said, "O Mu'adh!"
Mu'adh said thrice, "Labbaik and Sa'daik, O Allah's Apostle!"
Allah's Apostle said, "There is none who testifies sincerely that
none has the right to be worshipped but Allah and Muhammad is his
Apostle, except that Allah, will save him from the Hell-fire."
Mu'adh said, "O Allah's Apostle ! Should I not inform the people
about it so that they may have glad tidings?" He replied, "When the
people hear about it, they will solely depend on it." Then Mu'adh
narrated the above-mentioned Hadith just before his death, being
afraid of committing sin (by not telling the knowledge).
Volume 1, Book 3, Number 131
I was informed that the Prophet had said to Mu'adh, "Whosoever will

lest they should depend upon it (absolutely)."

a bath after she has a wet dream (nocturnal sexual discharge?) The
Prophet replied, "Yes, if she notices a discharge." Um Salama, then
covered her face and asked, "O Allah's Apostle! Does a woman get a
discharge?" He replied, "Yes, let your right hand be in dust (An
Arabic expression you say to a person when you contradict his
statement meaning "you will not achieve goodness"), and that is why
the son resembles his mother."

of that tree." Everybody started thinking about the trees of the
desert areas and I thought of the date-palm tree but felt shy (to
answer). The others asked, "O Allah's Apostle! inform us of it." He
replied, "it is the date-palm tree." I told my father what had come
to my mind and on that he said, "Had you said it I would have
preferred it to such and such a thing that I might possess."

assure the Ihram from Dhil-Hulaifa, the people of Syria from
Al-Ju,hfa and the people of Najd from Qarn." Ibn 'Umar further said,

slippers, then he can use Khuffs (leather socks) but the socks
should be cut short so as to make the ankles bare." (See Hadith No.
