Abu Hurairah’s First Good Deed (Ahadith 2204 – 2207)

Bismillah.

Hadith no. 2203 (below) is a repeat.

Volume 3, Book 46, Number 706:
Narrated ‘Umar bin Al-Khattab (radiallaahu `anhu):
The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “The (reward of) deeds depend on intentions, and every person will get the reward according to what he intends. So, whoever migrated for Allah and His Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam), then his migration will be for Allah and His Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam), and whoever migrated for worldly benefits or for marrying a woman, then his migration will be for what he migrated for.” (See Hadith No. 1, Vol. 1)

Today’s Ahadith:

Volume 3, Book 46, Number 707:
Narrated Qais:
When Abu Huraira (radiallaahu `anhu) accompanied by his slave set out intending to embrace Islam they lost each other on the way. The slave then came while Abu Huraira (radiallaahu `anhu) was sitting with the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam). The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “O Abu Huraira! Your slave has come back.” Abu Huraira (radiallaahu `anhu) said, “Indeed, I would like you to witness that I have manumitted him.” That happened at the time when Abu Huraira (radiallaahu `anhu) recited (the following poetic verse):– ‘What a long tedious tiresome night! Nevertheless, it has delivered us from the land of Kufr (disbelief).

Volume 3, Book 46, Number 708:
Narrated Abu Huraira (radiallaahu `anhu):
On my way to the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) I was reciting:– ‘What a long tedious tiresome night! Nevertheless, it has saved us from the land of Kufr (disbelief).’ I had a slave who ran away from me on the way. When I went to the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) and gave the pledge of allegiance for embracing Islam, the slave showed up while I was still with the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) who remarked, “O Abu Huraira (radiallaahu `anhu)! Here is your slave!” I said, “I manumit him for Allah’s Sake,” and so I freed him.

Volume 3, Book 46, Number 709:
Narrated Qais:
When Abu Huraira (radiallaahu `anhu) accompanied by his slave came intending to embrace Islam, they lost each other on the way. (When the slave showed up) Abu Huraira (radiallaahu `anhu) said (to the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam)), “I make you witness that the slave is free for Allah’s Cause.”

Abu Huraira (radiallaahu `anhu) left everything in the world to embrace Islam. He took his mother and his slave with him on the journey to Madinah leaving everything else behind. When he reached Madinah, he found that the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) was in Khaibar, fighting a Jewish tribe. He joined the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) in the final days of the battle at Khaibar, in the 7th year of the Hijrah. His first act after accepting Islam and meeting the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) was to free his slave. Cool, no?
