Seven Cubits (Hadith No. 2150)

Bismillah.

Long overdue, I know!

Ahadith 2147 – 2149 (below) are repeats. Related posts have been linked.

Volume 3, Book 43, Number 650:
Narrated Jabir (radiallaahu `anhu):
The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) entered the Mosque, and I too went there after tying the camel at the pavement of the Mosque. I said (to the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam)), “This is your camel.” He came out and started examining the camel and said, “Both the camel and its price are for you.”

Volume 3, Book 43, Number 651:
Narrated Hudhaifa (radiallaahu `anhu):
I saw Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) coming (or the Prophet came) to the dumps of some people and urinated there while standing.

Volume 3, Book 43, Number 652:
Narrated Abu Huraira (radiallaahu `anhu):
Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “While a man was on the way, he found a thorny branch of a tree there on the way and removed it. Allah thanked him for that deed and forgave him.”

Today’s Hadith:

Volume 3, Book 43, Number 653:
Narrated Abu Huraira (radiallaahu `anhu):
The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) judged that seven cubits should be left as a public way when there was a dispute about the land.

This is about streets and roads that are not personal property. At that time, seven cubits (approx. 3.2 meters) was enough for loaded camels to pass through without any hindrance or difficulty, so that’s the width mentioned. Nowadays, while we have all kinds and sizes of cars and trains etc., governments usually decide and agree upon the width of roads/streets and railway tracks etc. And that’s fine too. Whatever suits the needs at the time.
