Yet Another Miracle of the Prophet [SAW] (Hadith No. 410 – 411)

Salam,
Bismillah.

We learnt a few Ahadith about the miracles of the Prophet (SAW). Like this, this, this and this.
Another one (two, actually) today! :)

Volume 1, Book 8, Number 410:

Narrated Abu Huraira:

Allah’s Apostle said, “Do you consider or see that my face is towards the Qibla? By Allah, neither your submissiveness nor your bowing is hidden from me, surely I see you from my back.”

Volume 1, Book 8, Number 411:

Narrated Anas bin Malik:

The Prophet led us in a prayer and then got up on the pulpit and said, “In your prayer and bowing, I certainly see you from my back as I see you (while looking at you.)”

Weird, right? Scary too, especially for those offering Salah behind him. It was one of the miracles of the Prophet (SAW).

Wassalam.

More on Spitting (Ahadith 400 – 409)

Salam,
Bismillah.

There are a lot of Ahadith about spitting in the mosque so I thought we should do one comprehensive post on it…

Volume 1, Book 8, Number 400:

Narrated ‘Abdullah bin ‘Umar:

Allah’s Apostle saw sputum on the wall of the mosque in the direction of the Qibla and scraped it off. He faced the people and said, “Whenever any one of you is praying, he should not spit in front of him because in the prayer Allah is in front of him.”

Volume 1, Book 8, Number 401:

Narrated ‘Aisha:

(the mother of faithful believers) Allah’s Apostle saw some nasal secretions, expectoration or sputum on the wall of the mosque in the direction of the Qibla and scraped it off.

Volume 1, Book 8, Number 402:

Narrated Abd Huraira and Abu Said:

Allah’s Apostle saw some expectoration on the wall of the mosque; he took gravel and scraped it off and said, “If anyone of you wanted to spit he should neither spit in front of him nor on his right but he could spit either on his left or under his left foot.”

Volume 1, Book 8, Number 403:

Narrated Abd Huraira and Abu Sa’id:

Allah’s Apostle saw some expectoration on the wall of the mosque; he took gravel and scraped it off and said, “If anyone of you wanted to spit, he should neither spit in front of him nor on his right but could spit either on his left or under his left foot.”

Volume 1, Book 8, Number 404:

Narrated Anas:

The Prophet said, “None of you should spit in front or on his right but he could spit either on his left or under his foot.”

Volume 1, Book 8, Number 405:

Narrated Anas bin Malik:

The Prophet said, “A faithful believer while in prayer is speaking in private to his Lord, so he should neither spit in front of him nor to his right side but he could spit either on his left or under his foot.”

Volume 1, Book 8, Number 406:

Narrated Abu Said:

The Prophet saw sputum on (the wall of) the mosque in the direction of the Qibla and scraped it off with gravel. Then he forbade Spitting in front or on the right, but allowed it on one’s left or under one’s left foot.

Volume 1, Book 8, Number 407:

Narrated Anas bin Malik:

The Prophet said, “Spitting in the mosque is a sin and its expiation is to bury it.”

Remember this! Every sin needs expiation if one plans to get it forgiven. Some sins are expiated by repenting to Allah, some by seeking forgiveness from people, and some need an ‘undo’ action. Spitting in a mosque is one of these sins. You need to undo what you’ve done. So scrape it off/bury it.

Volume 1, Book 8, Number 408:

Narrated Abu Huraira:

Prophet said, “If anyone of you stands for prayer, he should not spit in front of him because in prayer he is speaking in private to Allah and he should not spit on his right as there is an angel, but he can spit either on his left or under his left foot and bury it (i.e. expectoration).”

Volume 1, Book 8, Number 409:

Narrated Anas:

The Prophet saw expectoration (on the wall of the mosque) in the direction of the Qibla and scraped it off with his hand. It seemed that he disliked it and the sign of disgust was apparent from his face. He said, “If anyone of you stands for the prayer, he is speaking in private to his Lord, (or) his Lord is between him and his Qibla, therefore he should not spit towards his Qibla, but he could spit either on his left or under his foot.” Then he took the corner of his sheet and spat in it, folded it and said, “Or do like this.”

Wassalam.

Spitting in the Masjid (Hadith No. 399)

Salam,
Bismillah.

Hadith no 396 is a repeat. Read it here. Read Hadith no 397 here and Hadith no 398 here.

Volume 1, Book 8, Number 399:

Narrated Anas bin Malik:

The Prophet saw some sputum in the direction of the Qibla (on the wall of the mosque) and he disliked that and the sign of disgust was apparent from his face. So he got up and scraped it off with his hand and said, “Whenever anyone of you stands for the prayer, he is speaking in private to his Lord or his Lord is between him and his Qibla. So, none of you should spit in the direction of the Qibla but one can spit to the left or under his foot.” The Prophet then took the corner of his sheet and spat in it and folded it and said, “Or you can do like this. “

Read reference to this Hadith here.

If you don’t spit like this, good. If you do, do it the Sunnah way. If you see people doing it, educate them.

Also, whatever impurity you see in a mosque/place of prayer, clean it up!

Wassalam.

Allah Agreed with Umar [RA] (Hadith No. 395)

Salam,
Bismillah.

Volume 1, Book 8, Number 395:

Narrated ‘Umar (bin Al-Khattab):

My Lord agreed with me in three things:

1. I said,”O Allah’s Apostle, I wish we took the station of Abraham as our praying place (for some of our prayers). So came the Divine Inspiration: And take you (people) the station of Abraham as a place of prayer (for some of your prayers e.g. two Rakat of Tawaf of Ka’ba)”. (2.125)

2. And as regards the (verse of) the veiling of the women, I said, ‘O Allah’s Apostle! I wish you ordered your wives to cover themselves from the men because good and bad ones talk to them.’ So the verse of the veiling of the women was revealed.

3. Once the wives of the Prophet made a united front against the Prophet and I said to them, ‘It may be if he (the Prophet) divorced you, (all) that his Lord (Allah) will give him instead of you wives better than you.’ So this verse (the same as I had said) was revealed.” (66.5).

I call it Umar (RA)’s awesomeness. He would think of something and Allah (SWT) would reveal a verse about it to make it a law. How cool!

One thing. Allah (SWT) wasn’t acting upon Umar (RA)’s ideas. These verses were going to be revealed anyway (so don’t blame him for the verse of veiling of women). Letting Umar (RA) come up with the idea and confirming it with revelation was Allah’s plan. Can you think why?

Wassalam.
