Pulpit of the Prophet (SAW) (Ahadith 439 – 440)


Volume 1, Book 8, Number 439:

Narrated Sahl:

Allah’s Apostle sent someone to a woman telling her to order her slave carpenter to prepare a wooden pulpit for him to sit on.

Volume 1, Book 8, Number 440:

Narrated Jabir:

A woman said, “O Allah’s Apostle! Shall I get something constructed for you to sit on as I have a slave who is a carpenter?” He replied, “Yes, if you like.” So she had that pulpit constructed.

Do you know which wood the pulpit was made out of? Read this to find out!

Tamarisk - Prophet (SAW)'s pulpit was made out of its wood.

This Hadith proves that women can also take part in social work and charity. :D



Development Stages of Prophet (SAW)’s Mosque (Hadith No. 437)


Volume 1, Book 8, Number 437:

Narrated ‘Abdullah bin ‘Umar:

In the life-time of Allah’s Apostle the mosque was built of adobes, its roof of the leaves of date-palms and its pillars of the stems of date-palms. Abu Bakr did not alter it. ‘Umar expanded it on the same pattern as it was in the lifetime of Allah’s Apostle by using adobes, leaves of date-palms and changing the pillars into wooden ones. ‘Uthman changed it by expanding it to a great extent and built its walls with engraved stones and lime and made its pillars of engraved stones and its roof of teak wood.

Do go through the detailed history of the Prophet (SAW)’s Mosque. And find some interesting stuff about it here.


Meat Lovers (Hadith No. 206)


Hadith no. 202, 203, 204 and 205  are repeats. Get ’em here.

Volume 1, Book 4, Number 206:

Narrated ‘Abdullah bin ‘Abbas:

Allah’s Apostle ate a piece of cooked mutton from the shoulder region and prayed without repeating ablution.

Prophet (SAW) loved mutton esp. the shoulder region. What do you love?


Water Cures (Hadith No. 197)


Water is a very good cure for fevers and hot flushes etc. Prophet (SAW) used it in his last days as a cure.

Volume 1, Book 4, Number 197:

Narrated ‘Aisha:

When the ailment of the Prophet became aggravated and his disease became severe, he asked his wives to permit him to be nursed (treated) in my house. So they gave him the permission. Then the Prophet came (to my house) with the support of two men, and his legs were dragging on the ground, between ‘Abbas, and another man.” ‘Ubaid-Ullah (the sub narrator) said, “I informed ‘Abdullah bin ‘Abbas of what’Aisha said. Ibn ‘Abbas said: ‘Do you know who was the other man?’ I replied in the negative. Ibn ‘Abbas said, ‘He was ‘Ali (bin Abi Talib).” ‘Aisha further said, “When the Prophet came to my house and his sickness became aggravated he ordered us to pour seven skins full of water on him, so that he might give some advice to the people. So he was seated in a Mikhdab (brass tub) belonging to Hafsa, the wife of the Prophet. Then, all of us started pouring water on him from the water skins till he beckoned to us to stop and that we have done (what he wanted us to do). After that he went out to the people.”

Try the water therapy. :)


Barakah [A Blessed Thing] (Hadith No. 187)


Hadith no. 186 is repeated. Read it here.

Volume 1, Book 4, Number 187:

Narrated Abu Juhaifa:

Allah’s Apostle came to us at noon and water for ablution was brought to him. After he had performed ablution, the remaining water was taken by the people and they started smearing their bodies with it (as a blessed thing). The Prophet offered two Rakat of the Zuhr prayer and then two Rakat of the ‘Asr prayer while an ‘Anza (spear-headed stick) was there (as a Sutra) in front of him. Abu Musa said: The Prophet asked for a tumbler containing water and washed both his hands and face in it and then threw a mouthful of water in the tumbler and said to both of us (Abu Musa and Bilal), “Drink from the tumbler and pour some of its water on your faces and chests.”

A ‘rational’ person might not be able to understand this concept, but it’s not hard to comprehend for a believer. Why did people start smearing their bodies with the remaining water of ablution of the Prophet (SAW)? And why did the Prophet (SAW) asked Abu Musa and Bilal to drink and pour from the water in the tumbler? It was all for barakah. Blessing. :)
