A Good Example (Hadith No. 389)
Hadith no. 388 is a repeat. Read here.
Narrated ‘Amr bin Dmar:
I asked Ibn ‘Umar, “Can a person who has performed the Tawaf around the Ka’ba for ‘Umra but has not performed the (Sa’i) Tawaf of Safa and Marwa, have a sexual relation with his wife?” Ibn ‘Umar replied “When the Prophet reached Mecca he performed the Tawaf around the Ka’ba (circumambulated it seven times) and offered a two-Rak’at prayer (at the place) behind the station (of Abraham) and then performed the Tawaf (Sa’i) of Safa and Marwa, and verily in Allah’s Apostle you have a good example.” Then we put the same question to Jabir bin ‘Abdullah and he too replied, “He should not go near his wife (for sexual relation) till he has finished the Tawaf of Safa and Marwa.”
We have a lot of questions about what we can and can’t do according to Islam. We argue and try to prove our own point of view right. But if we remember just one simple rule, we’ll save up so much of our time.
Verily, in Allah’s Apostle (SAW) you have a good example.
Whatever your question is, try to find the answer in the life of Allah’s Messenger (SAW). You’ll definitely find it! He was sent as a Messenger for all mankind, not just the people of his time. His life has answers for you too. You just have to start believing in it, for real.
