‘Aisha (radiallaahu `anhaa) said, “The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) died in my house on the day of my turn while he was leaning on my chest closer to my neck, and Allah made my saliva mix with his Saliva.” ‘Aisha (radiallaahu `anhaa) added, “‘AbdurRahman came with a Siwak and the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) was too weak to use it so I took it, chewed it and then (gave it to him and he) cleaned his teeth with it.”

Volume 4, Book 53, Number 333 :
Narrated by Safiya (radiallaahu `anhaa) (the wife of the Prophet)
That she came to visit Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) while he was in Itikaf (i.e. seclusion in the Mosque during the last ten days of Ramadan. When she got up to return, Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) got up with her and accompanied her, and when he reached near the gate of the Mosque close to the door (of the house) of Um Salama (radiallaahu `anhaa), the wife of the Prophet, two Ansari men passed by them and greeted Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) and then went away. Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) addressed them saying, “Don’t hurry! (She is my wife),” They said, “Glorified be Allah! O Allah’s Apostle (You are far away from any suspicion),” and his saying was hard on them. Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “Satan circulates in the mind of a person as blood does (in his body). I was afraid that Satan might put some (evil) thoughts in your minds.”

Volume 4, Book 53, Number 334 :
Narrated by ‘Abdullah bin ‘Umar (radiallaahu `anhu)
Once I went upstairs in Hafsa’s house and saw the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) answering the call of nature with his back towards the Qibla and facing Sham.

Volume 4, Book 53, Number 335 :

She said, “O Allah’s Apostle! This man is asking permission to enter your house.” Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) replied, “I think he is so-and-so (meaning the foster uncle of Hafsa). What is rendered illegal because of blood relations, is also rendered illegal because of the corresponding foster-relations.

Today’s Hadith:

Below is a list of ahadith that mention things belonging to the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam), or things that came from him.. We’ve seen in this post already that none of these things exist today no matter how many claims you see or hear.

His Ring..

Volume 4, Book 53, Number 338 :
Narrated by Anas (radiallaahu `anhu)
That when Abu Bakr (radiallaahu `anhu) became the Caliph, he sent him to Bahrain and wrote this letter for him, and stamped it with the Ring of the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam). Three lines were engraved on the Ring, (the word) ‘Muhammad’ was in a line, ‘Apostle’ was in another line, and ‘Allah’ in a third.


His Shoes

Volume 4, Book 53, Number 339 :
Narrated by ‘Isa bin Tahman
Anas (radiallaahu `anhu) brought out to us two worn out leather shoes without hair and with pieces of leather straps. Later on Thabit Al-Banani told me that Anas (radiallaahu `anhu) said that they were the shoes of the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam).

His Clothes

Volume 4, Book 53, Number 340 :
Narrated by Abu Burda (radiallaahu `anhu)
‘Aisha (radiallaahu `anhaa) brought out to us a patched woollen garment, and she said, “(It chanced that) the soul of Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) was taken away while he was wearing this.” Abu-Burda (radiallaahu `anhu) added, “Aisha (radiallaahu `anhaa) brought out to us a thick waist sheet like the ones made by the Yemenites, and also a garment of the type called Al-Mulabbada.”

His Cup

Volume 4, Book 53, Number 341 :
Narrated by Anas bin Malik (radiallaahu `anhu)
When the cup of Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) got broken, he fixed it with a silver wire at the crack. (The sub-narrator, ‘Asim said, “I saw the cup and drank (water) in it.”)

His Sword

Volume 4, Book 53, Number 342 :
Narrated by ‘Ali bin Al-Husain
That when they reached Medina after returning from Yazid bin Mu’awaiya after the martyrdom of Husain bin ‘Ali (may Allah bestow His Mercy upon him), Al-Miswar bin Makhrama met him and said to him, “Do you have any need you may order me to satisfy?” ‘Ali said, “No.” Al-Miswar said, Will you give me the sword of Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) for I am afraid that people may take it from you by force? By Allah, if you give it to me, they will never be able to take it till I die.” When Ali bin Abu Talib (radiallaahu `anhu) demanded the hand of the daughter of Abi Jahal to be his wife besides Fatima (radiallaahu `anhaa), I heard Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) on his pulpit delivering a sermon in this connection before the people, and I had then attained my age of puberty. Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “Fatima is from me, and I am afraid she will be subjected to trials in her religion (because of jealousy).” The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) then mentioned one of his son-in-law who was from the tribe of ‘Abu Shams, and he praised him as a good son-in-law, saying, “Whatever he said was the truth, and he promised me and fulfilled his promise. I do not make a legal thing illegal, nor do I make an illegal thing legal, but by Allah, the daughter of Allah’s Apostle and the daughter of the enemy of Allah, (i.e. Abu Jahl) can never get together (as the wives of one man).

His Instructions

Volume 4, Book 53, Number 343 :
Narrated by Ibn Al-Hanafiya
If Ali (radiallaahu `anhu) had spoken anything bad about ‘Uthman (radiallaahu `anhu) then he would have mentioned the day when some persons came to him and complained about the Zakat officials of ‘Uthman (radiallaahu `anhu). ‘Ali (radiallaahu `anhu) then said to me, “Go to ‘Uthman and say to him, ‘This document contains the regulations of spending the Sadaqa of Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) so order your Zakat officials to act accordingly.” I took the document to ‘Uthman (radiallaahu `anhu). ‘Uthman (radiallaahu `anhu) said, “Take it away, for we are not in need of it.” I returned to ‘Ali with it and informed him of that. He said, “Put it whence you took it.” Narrated Muhammad bin Suqa: I heard Mundhir At-Tuzi reporting Ibn Hanafiya who said, “My father sent me saying, ‘Take this letter to ‘Uthman (radiallaahu `anhu) for it contains the orders of the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) concerning the Sadaqa.’ “

His Advice

Volume 4, Book 53, Number 344 :
Narrated by ‘Ali (radiallaahu `anhu)
Fatima (radiallaahu `anhaa) complained of what she suffered from the hand mill and from grinding, when she got the news that some slave girls of the booty had been brought to Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam). She went to him to ask for a maid-servant, but she could not find him, and told ‘Aisha (radiallaahu `anhaa) of her need. When the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) came, Aisha (radiallaahu `anhaa) informed him of that. The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) came to our house when we had gone to our beds. (On seeing the Prophet) we were going to get up, but he said, ‘Keep at your places,’ I felt the coolness of the Prophet’s feet on my chest. Then he said, “Shall I tell you a thing which is better than what you asked me for? When you go to your beds, say: ‘Allahu Akbar (i.e. Allah is Greater)’ for 34 times, and ‘Alhamdu Lillah (i.e. all the praises are for Allah)’ for 33 times, and Subhan Allah (i.e. Glorified be Allah) for 33 times. This is better for you than what you have requested.”

His Kunyah

A kunya is a term consisting of a term preceded by the word Abu or Umm. Often the name used is the bearers eldest child, but not necessarily so. It is recommended for a Muslim to have a kunya even without having offspring:

Aishah (RA) reported that she once said to the Prophet (SAW),

“O Allah’s Messenger, why do you not give me a kunya. He replied, ‘Take a kunya after your sister’s son Abdullah. So you are Umm Abdullah.’”

It is a mark of respect to address an individual by his/her kunya.

It is not permissible to bear the Prophet’s kunya, Abul-Qasim:

Volume 4, Book 53, Number 345 :
Narrated by Jabir bin ‘Abdullah Al-Ansari
A man amongst us begot a boy whom he named Al-Qasim. On that the Ansar said, (to the man), “We will never call you Abu-al-Qasim and will never please you with this blessed title.” So, he went to the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) and said, “O Allah’s Apostle! I have begotten a boy whom I named Al-Qasim and the Ansar said, ‘We will never call you Abu-al-Qasim, nor will we please you with this title.’ ” The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “The Ansar have done well. Name by my name, but do not name by my Kunya, for I am Qasim.”

Volume 4, Book 53, Number 346 :
Narrated by Muawiya (radiallaahu `anhu)
Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “If Allah wants to do good for somebody, he makes him comprehend the Religion (i.e. Islam), and Allah is the Giver and I am Al-Qasim (i.e. the distributor), and this (Muslim) nation will remain victorious over their opponents, till Allah’s Order comes and they will still be victorious ” Narrated Abu Huraira (radiallaahu `anhu): Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “Neither do I give you (anything) nor withhold (anything) from you, but I am just a distributor (i.e. Qasim), and I give as I am ordered.”

So How Do You Behave?

Wrote this piece for Dr. Kanwal Kaisser to be published on the website made by herself and her team about parenting kids, named Hamaray Bachay. It’s been a while since this has been on their website so I thought I’d post it here too. You can find it under the tab of “Youth Talent Corner” on their website.


So how do you behave?

When your child comes home…

After a long active day

With all those stories to be told!


He doesn’t need your money

Not even a single dime

He just wants some love

And a few minutes of your precious time


But if you can’t even give that

Then you must be really rude

So when you watch him turn

Into a dude with attitude

You start getting angry

And you wonder why he’s so rude?!











You start asking yourself questions like

Where did I go wrong?

I taught him about Allah and His Prophet

But he hangs out with girls and listens to songs!


And when he starts to earn

Then he starts to ignore

Comes late every night

While in your sleep you snore


Then when you get old

And start getting pension

You’ll have everything

But not his attention


And then you’ll start to see

What your child really needed

He needed your attention

While you only feeded…


And if this made you see your life in flashes

You better start working on those minor clashes

Instead of thinking on why the conversation never starts

Bow down to Allah, the turner of hearts


He sends astray whom HE wants

And guides whom HE wills

Start praying for your child right now

So with love and mercy your hearts, He fills


And it all comes back to

How one behaves

Because Allah is not merciful to those

Who are not merciful to His slaves!

A Child’s Religion [contd. II] (Ahadith 1163 – 1166)


Hadith no 1162 (below) is a repeat. Read it here.

Volume 2, Book 23, Number 463:

Narrated Anas bin Malik

Allah’s Apostle (p.b.u.h) said, “Any Muslim whose three children died before the age of puberty will be granted Paradise by Allah because of His mercy to them.”

Volume 2, Book 23, Number 464:

Narrated Al-Bara’:

When Ibrahim (the son of Prophet) expired, Allah’s Apostle said, “There is a wet-nurse for him in Paradise.”

Meaning, the kid directly went to Paradise. How fortunate! <3

Volume 2, Book 23, Number 465:

Narrated Ibn Abbas:

Allah’s Apostle (p.b.u.h) was asked about the children of (Mushrikeen) pagans. The Prophet replied, “Since Allah created them, He knows what sort of deeds they would have done.”

Volume 2, Book 23, Number 466:

Narrated Abu Huraira:

The Prophet was asked about the offspring of pagans (Mushrikeen); so he said, “Allah knows what sort of deeds they would have done.”

Thus Allah will decide where they end up.

Volume 2, Book 23, Number 467:

Narrated Abu Huraira:

The Prophet said, “Every child is born with a true faith of Islam (i.e. to worship none but Allah Alone) and his parents convert him to Judaism or Christianity or Magianism, as an animal delivers a perfect baby animal. Do you find it mutilated?”

Such is the nature of a human being. If he’s left on a stranded island without any external influnce, he’ll grow up to believe in a ‘Higher Power’. He might not know His name, but he’ll believe in Him. That’s fitrah. And scientists found the ‘God spot‘ int he human brain a couple of years back, which now turned out to be ‘multiple areas in the brain responsible for spirituality‘.
Guess what? Prophet (SAW) told us about ‘fitrah‘ more than 1400 years back. :)

There have been two posts on this subject already. Please go through them. First here, and the second one here.


A Child’s Religion [contd.] (Ahadith 1138 – 1140)


Volume 2, Book 23, Number 439:

Narrated Ibn Abbas:

My mother and I were among the weak and oppressed. I from among the children, and my mother from among the women.

I’m guessing he’s talking about the time in Makkah when people were being called to Islam. Children were given da`wah too.

Volume 2, Book 23, Number 440:

Narrated Ibn Shihab:

The funeral prayer should be offered for every child even if he were the son of a prostitute as he was born with a true faith of Islam (i.e. to worship none but Allah Alone). If his parents are Muslims, particularly the father, even if his mother were a non-Muslim, and if he after the delivery cries (even once) before his death (i.e. born alive) then the funeral prayer must be offered. And if the child does not cry after his delivery (i.e. born dead) then his funeral prayer should not be offered, and he will be considered as a miscarriage. Abu Huraira, narrated that the Prophet said, “Every child is born with a true faith (i.e. to worship none but Allah Alone) but his parents convert him to Judaism or to Christianity or to Magainism, as an animal delivers a perfect baby animal. Do you find it mutilated?” Then Abu Huraira recited the holy verses: ‘The pure Allah’s Islamic nature (true faith i.e. to worship none but Allah Alone), with which He has created human beings.’ ” (30.30).

Volume 2, Book 23, Number 441:

Narrated Abu Huraira :

Allah’s Apostle said, “Every child is born with a true faith of Islam (i.e. to worship none but Allah Alone) but his parents convert him to Judaism, Christianity or Magainism, as an animal delivers a perfect baby animal. Do you find it mutilated?” Then Abu Huraira recited the holy verses: “The pure Allah’s Islamic nature (true faith of Islam) (i.e. worshipping none but Allah) with which He has created human beings. No change let there be in the religion of Allah (i.e. joining none in worship with Allah). That is the straight religion (Islam) but most of men know, not.” (30.30)

Read the previous post for details.


A Child’s Religion (Hadith No. 1137)


Volume 2, Book 23, Number 438:

Narrated Anas:

A young Jewish boy used to serve the Prophet and he became sick. So the Prophet went to visit him. He sat near his head and asked him to embrace Islam. The boy looked at his father, who was sitting there; the latter told him to obey Abu-l-Qasim and the boy embraced Islam. The Prophet came out saying: “Praises be to Allah Who saved the boy from the Hell-fire.”

A child is on his/her parents’ religion, as we get to know from another Hadith. When he’s born, he’s on fitrah, but his parents make him a Jew or a Christian etc.

This young Jewish boy was invited to Islam on his death bed by Prophet (SAW). This means that if he died without accepting it, he would’ve entered the Hell-fire. So yes, children deserve da`wah as well.

What if one of the parents is Muslim? What religion is a child on then? Read more on it here.
