The Daughter of Abu Bakr [radiallaahu `anhu] (Ahadith 2252 – 2253)

Bismillah.

Ahadith 2248 – 2253 (below) are repeats. See linked text for related posts.

Volume 3, Book 47, Number 750:
Narrated Abu Huraira (radiallaahu `anhu):
Whenever a meal was brought to Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam), he would ask whether it was a gift or Sadaqa (something given in charity). If he was told that it was Sadaqa, he would tell his companions to eat it, but if it was a gift, he would hurry to share it with them.

Volume 3, Book 47, Number 751:
Narrated Anas bin Malik (radiallaahu `anhu):
Some meat was brought to the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) and it was said that the meat had been given in charity to Buraira. He said, “It was Sadaqa for Buraira but a gift for us.”

Volume 3, Book 47, Number 752:
Narrated ‘Aisha (radiallaahu `anhaa):
I intended to buy Buraira but her masters stipulated that her Wala should be for them. When the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) was told about it, he said to me, “Buy and manumit her, as the Wala’ is for the liberator.” Once Buraira was given some meat, and the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) asked, “What is this?” I said, “It has been given to Buraira in charity.” He said, “It is sadaqa for her but a gift for us.” Buraira was given the option (to stay with her husband or to part with him). AbdurRahman (a sub-narrator) wondered, “Was her husband a slave or a free man?” Shu’ba (another sub-narrator) said, “I asked ‘Abdur-Rahman whether her husband was a slave or a free man. He replied that he did not know whether he was a slave or a free man.”

Volume 3, Book 47, Number 753:
Narrated Um ‘Atiyya:
Once the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) went to ‘Aisha (radiallaahu `anhaa) and asked her whether she had something (to eat). She said that she had nothing except the mutton which Um ‘Atiyya had sent to (Buraira) in charity. The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said that it had reached its destination (i.e. it is no longer an object of charity.)

Today’s Ahadith:

Volume 3, Book 47, Number 754:
Narrated ‘Aisha (radiallaahu `anhaa):
The people used to send gifts to the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) on the day of my turn. Um Salama (radiallaahu `anhaa) said: “My companions (the wives of the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) other than Aisha) gathered and they complained about it. So I informed the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) about it on their behalf, but he remained silent.

Volume 3, Book 47, Number 755:
Narrated ‘Urwa from ‘Aisha (radiallaahu `anhaa):
The wives of Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) were in two groups. One group consisted of ‘Aisha, Hafsa, Safiyya and Sauda (radiallaahu `anhum); and the other group consisted of Um Salama (radiallaahu `anhaa) and the other wives of Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam). The Muslims knew that Allah’s Apostle loved ‘Aisha, so if any of them had a gift and wished to give to Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam), he would delay it, till Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) had come to ‘Aisha’s home and then he would send his gift to Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) in her home. The group of Um Salama discussed the matter together and decided that Um Salama should request Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) to tell the people to send their gifts to him in whatever wife’s house he was. Um Salama told Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) of what they had said, but he did not reply. Then they (those wives) asked Um Salama about it. She said, “He did not say anything to me.” They asked her to talk to him again. She talked to him again when she met him on her day, but he gave no reply. When they asked her, she replied that he had given no reply. They said to her, “Talk to him till he gives you a reply.” When it was her turn, she talked to him again. He then said to her, “Do not hurt me regarding Aisha, as the Divine Inspirations do not come to me on any of the beds except that of Aisha.” On that Um Salama said, “I repent to Allah for hurting you.” Then the group of Um Salama called Fatima, the daughter of Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) and sent her to Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) to say to him, “Your wives request to treat them and the daughter of Abu Bakr on equal terms.” Then Fatima conveyed the message to him. The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “O my daughter! Don’t you love whom I love?” She replied in the affirmative and returned and told them of the situation. They requested her to go to him again but she refused. They then sent Zainab bint Jahsh who went to him and used harsh words saying, “Your wives request you to treat them and the daughter of Ibn Abu Quhafa on equal terms.” On that she raised her voice and abused ‘Aisha to her face so much so that Allah’s Apostle looked at ‘Aisha to see whether she would retort. ‘Aisha started replying to Zainab till she silenced her. The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) then looked at ‘Aisha and said, “She is really the daughter of Abu Bakr.”

Quite an interesting story, isn’t it? Everyone has some degree of drama in their lives. Lol.

The Egyptian Mastigure (Hadith No. 2247)

Bismillah.

Volume 3, Book 47, Number 749:
Narrated Said bin Jubair:
Ibn Abbas (radiallaahu `anhu) said: Um Hufaid, Ibn ‘Abbas’s aunt (radiallaahu `anhumaa), sent some dried yogurt (butter free), ghee (butter) and a mastigar to the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) as a gift. The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) ate the dried yogurt and butter but left the mastigar because he disliked it. Ibn ‘Abbas (radiallaahu `anhu) said, “The mastigar was eaten at the table of Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) and if it had been illegal to eat, it could not have been eaten at the table of Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam).”

This “mastigar” mentioned in the hadith is a type of sand lizard, commonly known as an Egyptian Mastigure (dabb in Arabic). You can eat it if you like. :)

Tempting, isn't it? :P

Tempting, isn’t it? :P

Smart Gifts (Hadith No. 2246)

Bismillah.

Hadith no. 2245 (below) is a repeat. Read it here.

Volume 3, Book 47, Number 747:
Narrated As-Sa’b bin Jaththama (radiallaahu `anhu):
An onager was presented to Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) at the place called Al-Abwa’ or Waddan, but Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) rejected it. When the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) noticed the signs of sorrow on the giver’s face he said, “We have not rejected your gift, but we are in the state of Ihram.” (i.e. if we were not in a state of Ihram we would have accepted your gift.

Today’s Hadith:

Volume 3, Book 47, Number 748:
Narrated Aisha (radiallaahu `anhaa):
The people used to look forward for the days of my (‘Aisha’s) turn to send gifts to Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) in order to please him.

So everyone knew about his love for Aisha (radiallaahu `anhu) and they knew that he’d be the happiest with her.. why not add to that happiness to gain closeness to him, right? Talk about “smart” gifts.

Ah! Can’t wait to meet him and his family in Jannah. May Allah make it happen. <3

Fruition!

Sometimes I wonder if I were a butterfly, with flaming shades on my wings,
Fluttering here and resting there, hopping and flitting from leaves to twigs,

I would live in gardens green with trees and bushes plentiful,
Wild flowers would be my haven, their scents would make my tummy full

Oh what a life would that be to lead, with nature all around my feet
But then what about that place of which no ear has heard nor eye has seen?

To earn which, the worst of pains and bitter sorrows you have to endure,
The price is high, the pennies worth it but every step makes you sore,

Would it be legit for me to make it my residence eternal, my resting place?
Where everlasting blessings tempt one, but oh for the pleasure of seeing His Face!

Rabbit (Hadith No. 2244)

Bismillah.

Ahadith 2241 – 224 (below) are repeats. See linked text for related posts.

Volume 3, Book 47, Number 743:
Narrated Sahl (radiallaahu `anhu):
The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) sent for a woman from the emigrants and she had a slave who was a carpenter. The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said to her “Order your slave to prepare the wood (pieces) for the pulpit.” So, she ordered her slave who went and cut the wood from the tamarisk and prepared the pulpit, for the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam). When he finished the pulpit, the woman informed the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) that it had been finished. The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) asked her to send that pulpit to him, so they brought it. The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) lifted it and placed it at the place in which you see now.”

Volume 3, Book 47, Number 744:
Narrated ‘Abdullah bin Abu Qatada Al-Aslami:
That his father said, “One day I was sitting with some of the Prophet’s (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) companions on the way to Mecca. Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) was ahead of us. All of my companions were in the state of Ihram while I was a non-Muhrim. They saw an onager while I was busy repairing my shoes, so they did not tell me about it but they wished I had seen it. By chance I looked up and saw it. So, I turned to the horse, saddled it and rode on it, forgetting to take the spear and the whip. I asked them if they could hand over to me the whip and the spear but they said, ‘No, by Allah, we shall not help you in that in any way.’ I became angry and got down from the horse, picked up both the things and rode the horse again. I attacked the onager and slaughtered it, and brought it (after it had been dead). They took it (cooked some of it) and started eating it, but they doubted whether it was allowed for them to eat it or not, as they were in the state of Ihram. So, we proceeded and I hid with me one of its fore-legs. When we met Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) and asked him about the case, he asked, ‘Do you have a portion of it with you?’ I replied in the affirmative and gave him that fleshy fore-leg which he ate completely while he was in the state of Ihram.

Volume 3, Book 47, Number 745:
Narrated Anas (radiallaahu `anhu):
Once Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) visited us in this house of ours and asked for something to drink. We milked one of our sheep and mixed it with water from this well of ours and gave it to him. Abu Bakr (radiallaahu `anhu) was sitting on his left side and ‘Umar (radiallaahu `anhu) in front of him and a bedouin on his right side. When Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) finished, ‘Umar (radiallaahu `anhu) said to Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam), “Here is Abu Bakr (radiallaahu `anhu).” But Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) gave the remaining milk to the bedouin and said twice, “The (persons on the) right side! So, start from the right side.” Anas (radiallaahu `anhu) added, “It is a Sunnah (the Prophet’s traditions)” and repeated it thrice.

Today’s Hadith:

Volume 3, Book 47, Number 746:
Narrated Anas (radiallaahu `anhu):
We chased a rabbit at Mar-al-Zahran and the people ran after it but were exhausted. I overpowered and caught it, and gave it to Abu Talha (radiallaahu `anhu) who slaughtered it and sent its hip or two thighs to Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam). (The narrator confirms that he sent two thighs). The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) accepted that. (The sub-narrator asked Anas (radiallaahu `anhu), “Did the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam); eat from it?” Anas (radiallaahu `anhu) replied, “He ate from it.”)

Basically all animals are Halal except those that are made unlawful in Shari’a.
Allah says (interpretation of meaning): {Say (O Muhammad SAW): “I find not in that which has been inspired to me anything forbidden to be eaten by one who wishes to eat it, unless it be Maytah (a dead animal) or blood poured forth (by slaughtering or the like), or the flesh of swine (pork, etc.) for that surely is impure, …} [6: 145].

The Hadith establishes a rule concerning the birds and animals that are Haram, the Hadith reads: “Eating of all fanged beasts of prey, and all the birds having talons is forbidden”. [Reported by Imam Muslim ].

Therefore, eating a rabbit is permissible, and it is proved in Sahihain that “the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam) and his companions ate its meat” .
Rabbit is Halal and no one from Muslim scholars opposed this ruling.
