No Deception! (Hadith No. 2087)


Ahadith 2085 – 2086 (below) are repeats. Related posts have been linked.

Volume 3, Book 41, Number 588 :
Narrated by Jabir bin ‘Abdullah (radiallaahu `anhu)
A man pledged that his slave would be manumitted after his death. The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) asked, “Who will buy the slave from me?” No’aim bin ‘Abdullah bought the slave and the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) took its price and gave it to the owner.

Volume 3, Book 41, Number 589 :
Narrated by Jabir (radiallaahu `anhu)
When ‘Abdullah (radiallaahu `anhu) (my father) died, he left behind children and debts. I asked the lenders to put down some of his debt, but they refused, so I went to the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) to intercede with them, yet they refused. The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said (to me), “Classify your dates into their different kinds: ‘Adhq bin Zaid, Lean and ‘Ajwa, each kind alone and call all the creditors and wait till I come to you.” I did so and the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) came and sat beside the dates and started measuring to each his due till he paid them fully, and the amount of dates remained as it was before, as if he had not touched them. (On another occasion) I took part in one of Ghazawat among with the Prophet and I was riding one of our camels. The camel got tired and was lagging behind the others. The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) hit it on its back. He said, “Sell it to me, and you have the right to ride it till Medina.” When we approached Medina, I took the permission from the Prophet to go to my house, saying, “O Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam)! I have newly married.” The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) asked, “Have you married a virgin or a matron (a widow or divorcee)?” I said, “I have married a matron, as ‘Abdullah (my father) died and left behind daughters small in their ages, so I married a matron who may teach them and bring them up with good manners.” The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) then said (to me), “Go to your family.” When I went there and told my maternal uncle about the selling of the camel, he admonished me for it. On that I told him about its slowness and exhaustion and about what the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) had done to the camel and his hitting it. When the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) arrived, I went to him with the camel in the morning and he gave me its price, the camel itself, and my share from the war booty as he gave the other people.

Today’s Hadith:

Volume 3, Book 41, Number 590 :
Narrated by Ibn ‘Umar (radiallaahu `anhu)
A man came to the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) and said, “I am often betrayed in bargaining.” The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) advised him, “When you buy something, say (to the seller), ‘No deception.” The man used to say so afterwards.

So reminding the person of Allah’s laws right in the middle of a transaction might help reduce the risk of being cheated.
