Narrated by Aisha (radiallaahu `anhaa)
That she said, “O Allah’s Apostle! Your companions are returning with the reward of both Hajj and ‘Umra, while I am returning with (the reward of) Hajj only.” He said to her, “Go, and let ‘Abdur-Rahman (i.e. your brother) make you sit behind him (on the animal).” So, he ordered ‘AbdurRahman (radiallaahu `anhu) to let her perform ‘Umra from Al-Tan’im. Then the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) waited for her at the higher region of Mecca till she returned.

Narrated by Nafi from ‘Abdullah (radiallaahu `anhu)
Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) came to Mecca through its higher region on the day of the Conquest (of Mecca) riding his she-camel on which Usama (radiallaahu `anhu) was riding behind him. Bilal and ‘Uthman bin Talha (radiallaahu `anhumaa), one of the servants of the Ka’ba, were also accompanying him till he made his camel kneel in the mosque and ordered the latter to bring the key of the Ka’ba. He opened the door of the Ka’ba and Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) entered in the company of Usama, Bilal and ‘Uthman (radiallaahu `anhum), and stayed in it for a long period. When he came out, the people rushed to it, and ‘Abdullah bin ‘Umar (radiallaahu `anhu) was the first to enter it and found Bilal (radiallaahu `anhu) standing behind the door. He asked Bilal (radiallaahu `anhu), “Where did the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) offer his prayer?” He pointed to the place where he had offered his prayer. ‘Abdullah (radiallaahu `anhu) said, “I forgot to ask him how many Rakat he had performed.”

Narrated Jabir (radiallaahu `anhu):
The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) entered the Mosque, and I too went there after tying the camel at the pavement of the Mosque. I said (to the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam)), “This is your camel.” He came out and started examining the camel and said, “Both the camel and its price are for you.”

Narrated Hudhaifa (radiallaahu `anhu):
I saw Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) coming (or the Prophet came) to the dumps of some people and urinated there while standing.

Narrated Abu Huraira (radiallaahu `anhu):
Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “While a man was on the way, he found a thorny branch of a tree there on the way and removed it. Allah thanked him for that deed and forgave him.”
Volume 3, Book 43, Number 653:
Narrated Abu Huraira (radiallaahu `anhu):
The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) judged that seven cubits should be left as a public way when there was a dispute about the land.
This is about streets and roads that are not personal property. At that time, seven cubits (approx. 3.2 meters) was enough for loaded camels to pass through without any hindrance or difficulty, so that’s the width mentioned. Nowadays, while we have all kinds and sizes of cars and trains etc., governments usually decide and agree upon the width of roads/streets and railway tracks etc. And that’s fine too. Whatever suits the needs at the time.
Volume 3, Book 43, Number 644:
Narrated Anas (radiallaahu `anhu):
I was the butler of the people in the house of Abu Talha (radiallaahu `anhu), and in those days drinks were prepared from dates. Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) ordered somebody to announce that alcoholic drinks had been prohibited. Abu Talha (radiallaahu `anhu) ordered me to go out and spill the wine. I went out and spilled it, and it flowed in the streets of Medina. Some people said, “Some people were killed and wine was still in their stomachs.” On that the Divine revelation came:- “On those who believe And do good deeds, there is no blame for what they ate (in the past).” (5.93)

This hadith is mentioned by Imam Bukhari in this Book (of Oppressions) under the chapter “Spilling Wine on the Way”. Under normal circumstances, throwing something out on the street or in the way will be considered absolutely immoral.. but in this case, not one, but all the companions threw out whatever they had of intoxicating drinks as soon as the verse was revealed.
That was then. In this day and age, with sewers and drainage systems intact in our houses and buildings, we need not resort to the spilling method. You wanna get rid of something? Try the garbage can, or send it down the drain. DO NOT SPILL! Especially where people could walk and get hurt/dirty.
Alhamdulillah! All Praise be to Allah! I was thinking on some other lines but ended up writing this!
For once let your soul wander
On that road seldom taken
They say there’s magic on it
For those sleeping, oft awaken
It’s famous yet it’s unknown too
Maybe we’re just mistaken
They say it changes faces not
But hearts are surely shaken
People of past, the souls of great
All have that road taken
On it have walked great warriors and Kings…
Alas! It’s now forsaken!
Great mystery though it still does hold
It may seem strange to you and I
They deem it strange, nor dark, nor cold
Those who possess The Inward Eye
Some go there just to find themselves
Some go there for enlightenment
But one thing common in them all
Is they enjoy the time they spend
Some call it the Path to God
Some call it Siraat-e-Mustaqeem
But the thing that brings them in accord
Is that you find it ONLY in THE DEEN!
