Among the Signs of the Hour (Ahadith 2573 – 2575)

Bismillah.

Volume 4, Book 52, Number 178 :
Narrated by ‘Amr bin Taghlib (radiallaahu `anhu)
The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “One of the portents of the Hour is that you will fight with people wearing shoes made of hair; and one of the portents of the Hour is that you will fight with broad-faced people whose faces will look like shields coated with leather.”

Volume 4, Book 52, Number 179 :
Narrated by Abu Huraira (radiallaahu `anhu)
Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “The Hour will not be established until you fight with the Turks; people with small eyes, red faces, and flat noses. Their faces will look like shields coated with leather. The Hour will not be established till you fight with people whose shoes are made of hair.”

Volume 4, Book 52, Number 180 :
Narrated by Abu Huraira (radiallaahu `anhu)
The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “The Hour will not be established till you fight with people wearing shoes made of hair. And the Hour will not be established till you fight with people whose faces look like shields coated with leather. ” (Abu Huraira added, “They will be) small-eyed, flat nosed, and their faces will look like shields coated with leather.”)

There are different opinions regarding the origins of the “Turks” mentioned in the above ahadith. Anyhow, this is one of the predictions that Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) made about the end of times, so it proves his prophethood.

Believe.

Ihraam – Shower? (Hadith No. 1561)

Bismillah.

Hadith no. 1560 (below) is a repeat. Read it here.

Volume 3, Book 29, Number 65:

Narrated Ibn ‘Abbas (radiallaahu `anhu):

A man was crushed to death by his she-camel and was brought to Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) who said, “Give him a bath and shroud him, but do not cover his head, and do not bring any perfume near to him, as he will be resurrected reciting Talbiya.”

Today’s Hadith:

Volume 3, Book 29, Number 66:

Narrated ‘Abdullah bin Hunain:

Abdullah bin Al-Abbas (radiallaahu `anhu) and Al-Miswar bin Makhrama (radiallaahu `anhu) differed at Al-Abwa’; Ibn ‘Abbas (radiallaahu `anhu) said that a Muhrim could wash his head; while Al-Miswar (radiallaahu `anhu) maintained that he should not do so. ‘Abdullah bin ‘Abbas (radiallaahu `anhu) sent me to Abu Aiyub Al-Ansari (radiallaahu `anhu) and I found him bathing between the two wooden posts (of the well) and was screened with a sheet of cloth. I greeted him and he asked who I was. I replied, “I am ‘Abdullah bin Hunain and I have been sent to you by Ibn ‘Abbas (radiallaahu `anhu) to ask you how Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) used to wash his head while in the state of lhram.” Abu Aiyub Al-Ansari (radiallaahu `anhu) caught hold of the sheet of cloth and lowered it till his head appeared before me, and then told somebody to pour water on his head. He poured water on his head, and he (Abu Aiyub) rubbed his head with his hands by bringing them from back to front and from front to back and said, “I saw the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) doing like this.”

Hence proven, that a Muhrim may take a shower and wash his hair as well.

It is permissible for the Muslim to wash his entire body in order to cool down if it is hot. This will give him more energy in order to perform this act of worship. He should take care when washing so that nothing falls from his hair or skin.
Standing Committee for Academic Research and Issuing Fatwas, Fataawa al-Lajnah, 11/184

P.S. it’s interesting to know the way Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) used to wash his hair – moving his hands front to back and then back to front. Unknown Sunnah, eh?

Hajj – Shaving or Cutting Hair (Ahadith 1484 – 1488)

Bismillah.

Volume 2, Book 26, Number 784:

Narrated Ibn ‘Umar (radiallaahu `anhu):

Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) (got) his head shaved after performing his Hajj.


Volume 2, Book 26, Number 785:

Narrated Abdullah bin Umar (radiallaahu `anhu):

Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “O Allah! Be merciful to those who have their head shaved.” The people said, “O Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam)! And (invoke Allah for) those who get their hair cut short.” The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “O Allah! Be merciful to those who have their head shaved.” The people said, “O Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam)! And those who get their hair cut short.” The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said (the third time), “And to those who get their hair cut short.” Nafi’ said that the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) had said once or twice, “O Allah! Be merciful to those who get their head shaved,” and on the fourth time he added, “And to those who have their hair cut short.”


Volume 2, Book 26, Number 786:

Narrated Abu Huraira (radiallaahu `anhu):

Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “O Allah! Forgive those who get their heads shaved.” The people asked. “Also those who get their hair cut short?” The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “O Allah! Forgive those who have their heads shaved.” The people said, “Also those who get their hair cut short?” The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) (invoke Allah for those who have their heads shaved and) at the third time said, “also (forgive) those who get their hair cut short.”


Volume 2, Book 26, Number 787:

Narrated ‘Abdullah (radiallaahu `anhu):

The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) and some of his companions got their heads shaved and some others got their hair cut short. Narrated Muawiya (radiallaahu `anhu): I cut short the hair of Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) with a long blade.


Volume 2, Book 26, Number 788:

Narrated Ibn Abbas (radiallaahu `anhu):

When the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) came to Mecca, he ordered his Companions to perform Tawaf round the Ka’ba and between Safa and Marwa, to finish their Ihram and get their hair shaved off or cut short.

When the pilgrim who is doing Tamattu’ has completed seven circuits of saa’i, he should shave his head if he is a man, or cut his hair. If he shaves his head he must shave his entire head, and if he cuts his hair he must cut from all over his head. Shaving is better than cutting because the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) made du’aa’ three times for those who shaved their heads and once for those who cut their hair. Narrated by Muslim, 1303.

But if the time of Hajj is so close that there will be no time for the hair to grow back, then it is better to cut one’s hair at this point, so that there will be some hair left to shave during Hajj. The evidence for that is the fact that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) commanded his companions, during the Farewell Pilgrimage, to cut their hair during ‘Umrah, because they arrived on the morning of the 4th of Dhu’l-Hijjah.

Women should cut the length of a fingertip from their hair.

Hajj – Ihraam [Apparant] (Ahadith 1311 – 1315)

Bismillah.

Volume 2, Book 26, Number 611:

Narrated Said bin Jubair:

Ibn ‘Umar (radiallaahu `anhu) used to oil his hair. I told that to Ibrahim who said, “What do you think about this statement: Narrated Aswad from ‘Aisha (radiallaahu `anhaa): As if I were now observing the glitter of the scent in the parting of the hair of the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) while he was Muhrim?”

Volume 2, Book 26, Number 612:

Narrated ‘Aisha (radiallaahu `anhaa):

(the wife of the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam)) I used to scent Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) when he wanted to assume Ihram and also on finishing Ihram before the Tawaf round the Ka’ba (Tawaf-al-ifada).

Volume 2, Book 26, Number 613:

Narrated Salim from his father:

I heard that Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) assumed Ihram with his hair matted together.

Volume 2, Book 26, Number 614:

Narrated Salim bin ‘Abdullah :

I heard my father saying, “Never did Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) assume Ihram except at the Mosque, that is, at the Mosque of Dhul-Hulaifa.

Volume 2, Book 26, Number 615:

Narrated ‘Abdullah bin ‘Umar (radiallaahu `anhu):

A man asked, “O Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam)! What kind of clothes should a Muhrim wear?” Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) replied, “He should not wear a shirt, a turban, trousers, a headcloak or leather socks except if he can find no slippers, he then may wear leather socks after cutting off what might cover the ankles. And he should not wear clothes which are scented with saffron or Wars (kinds of Perfumes) . “
