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


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.
