Hadith

 

The Hadith are the traditions of deeds and words attributed to the Prophet Muhammad which, after the Qur'an, provide the basis of Islamic Law.

The Prophet used to sit with his Companions in a circle. His sayings and actions were carefully noted and memorized. Thousands of hadiths were collected dealing with topics such as religious faith, purification, fasting, pilgrimage, trading transactions, inheritance, punishment, warfare, animal sacrifice, food, clothing, manners, Paradise and Hell.

The Hadith were not collated until the Third Islamic Century. In the meantime many doubtful or spurious hadiths were generated. Before they authenticated them the muhadithun (students of hadith) minutely examined each text (matn) and each isnad (chain of transmitters). For example the isnad, Yahyah-Hammad-Hisham~'Urwah~A'isha shows that A'isha was the witness and passed it on to 'Urwah, who passed it on to Hisham, etc.

The three main divisions of hadith are sahih (sound), hasan (good) and daif (weak). We have only quoted "strongly authenticated hadith." We have also omitted the isnads.)

It may well be that a number of hadith which are accepted may be spurious but if this is taken to its logical conclusion, we would know nothing of Prophet Muhammad. The fundamentalists consider the sahih hadith to be literally true, so in order to combat fundamentalism the modernists must show them for what they are.

Muslim 234 The Prophet said: "Then go to the persons who do not join the congregational prayer and order their homes to be burnt..."

Muslim 550 It is permissible to cast a glance at the face and the palms of a woman whom one intends to marry.

Muslim 557 The Jews used to say: "When a man has intercourse with his wife through her vagina but from behind, the child will have a squint." So Allah revealed the verse: "Your wives are your tilth; go then unto your tilth as you may desire." (2:223) "If he likes he may have intercourse being on the back or in front of her, but it should be through one opening, the vagina."

 Muslim 558 The Prophet said: "When a man calls his wife to his bed and she does not come, the husband spends the night being angry with her, and the angels curse her until morning. The One Who is in Heaven is displeased with her until the husband is pleased with her."

 Muslim 576 The Prophet said: "Woman has been created from a rib, and will in no way be straightened for you. Had it not been for the children of Israel, food would not have gone stale or bad; and had it not been for Eve, a woman would never have been unfaithful to her husband."

In the cases of a married male committing adultery with a married female, they shall receive one hundred lashes and be stoned to death. If one of the pair is unmarried, one hundred lashes and exile for a year.

 Muslim 682 The Prophet said: "Do not stone the adulteress who is pregnant until she has had her child." After the birth she was put into a ditch up to her chest and the Prophet commanded them to stone her. Khalid came forward with a stone which he threw at her head, and there spurted blood on the face of Khalid and he cursed her. The gentle Prophet prayed over her and she was buried.

 Muslim 786 Asked about (3:169) "Think not of those who are slain in Allah's way as dead. Nay, they are alive, finding their sustenance in the presence of the Lord..." The Prophet said: "The souls of the martyrs live in the bodies of green birds who have their nests in the chandeliers hung from the throne of the Almighty..."

 Muslim 813 A dead whale was found washed up on the beach. The Muslims were permitted to eat it.

 Muslim 814 et seq. The Prophet forbade the eating of meat of domestic asses for those are loathsome or impure. (But horses and wild asses are permitted as food) The Prophet would not eat lizard but did not make it unlawful (816) The Prophet ate locusts (817) and hares. (818)

 Muslim 842 The Prophet said: "None of you should drink while standing; and if anyone forgets, he must vomit."

 Muslim 845 When a table of people were sharing a cup of milk the Prophet said that it was desirable to circulate it to the next person on the right.

 Muslim 846 The Prophet said: "The Satan is present with any one of you in everything he does; so if any one of you drops a mouthful he should remove anything dirty on it and eat it and not leave anything for the devil; and when he finishes eating he should lick his fingers, for he does not know in what portion of his food the blessing lies."

 Muslim 882 A'isha may have let a puppy into her house. The Prophet made her put it out. Gabriel came and said: "It was the dog in your house which prevented me from coming, for we angels do not enter a house in which there is a dog or a picture." The Prophet said: "Those who paint pictures would be punished on the Day of Resurrection and it would be said to them: 'Breathe soul into what you have created'". The commentator says that an artist wishes to rival the creator or to create something to worship? Even photographs or statues are not exempted from this stricture and yet we all have seen photographs of the Ayatollah and of martyrs in that most Islamic of countries, Iran.

Muslim 886 Mohawks beware.

 The Prophet forbade Qaz'a. This means having a part of a boy's head shaved and leaving a part unshaven.

 Muslim 888 The Prophet cursed the women who added false hair and to the women who asked for it. (One had lost it in an attack of small pox) The Children of Israel were ruined at the time when their women wore wigs. The Prophet called it cheating. He also cursed those women that had themselves tattooed and their eyebrows plucked.

 Muslim 935 The Prophet said: "Kill the snakes having stripes over them and short-tailed snakes for they cause miscarriage of a pregnant woman and adversely affect the eyesight." He forbade the killing of domestic snakes. This only applies to Medina where some of the jinns have embraced Islam and have taken the form of house snakes.

 Muslim 936 The Prophet commanded the killing of geckos (house lizards) for they are "noxious little creatures". There are ordained a hundred virtues for killing one on the first stroke.

 Muslim 938 The Prophet said: "A woman was punished in Hell because she had kept a cat tied up without food or water until it died."

 Muslim 946 The Prophet said: "He who played chess is like one who dyed his hand with the flesh and blood of swine."

Muslim 953 The Prophet said: "I shall be pre-eminent amongst the descendants of Adam on the Day of Resurrection... and the first whose intercession will be accepted by Allah."

 Muslim 954 There was a shortage of water. A small quantity was brought to the Prophet and he placed his hand in it. Water spouted from his fingers enough for the 50 or 80 present to perform their ablutions.

Muslim 1140 The Prophet said: "The majority of those who entered the Fire of Hell was that of women." "So avoid the allurement of women." "Allah tests men by means of women but great is the harm done to men.

Muslim 1149 The Prophet said: "When it will be the Day of Resurrection Allah will deliver to every Muslim a Jew or a Christian and say:

"That is your rescue from Hell-Fire". The Muslim may have sins as heavy as a mountain but the wrong beliefs of the non-believers would save space in Paradise."

 Muslim 1153 There was a Muslim who used to transcribe for the Prophet but he ran away as a rebel and joined the People of the Book. (Jews or Christians?) Allah caused his death, so the unbelievers dug a grave and buried him. Three times they tried to bury him but each time the earth threw him out on to the surface. In the end they left him unburied.

 Muslim 1167 One night A'isha (wife No 3) was jealous of another wife. The Prophet said that she had a devil attached to her: everyone has a devil, the Prophet included except that Allah counters his.

 Muslim 1172 The Prophet said: "In Paradise there is a tree under the shadow of which a rider of a fine and swift-footed horse would travel for a hundred years without covering the distance completely."

 Muslim 1176 The Prophet said: "Every person in Paradise will have two wives." Also: He said: "Those who get into Paradise will have their faces as bright as stars in the sky". They will neither pass water, nor void excrement, nor will they suffer from catarrh, nor will they spit, and their combs would be made of gold, and their sweat will be musk, the fuel of their brazier will be aloes, and their wives will be large-eyed maidens and their form would be alike as one single person after the form of Adam sixty cubits tall."

 Muslim 1177 The Prophet said: "In Paradise there would be no dissension between the two wives and no enmity in their hearts." When questioned about what would happen to the food if there was no defecating, the Prophet said that their eating would be digested in the form of belching.

 Muslim 1178 The Prophet said: "In Paradise you should never fall ill; you live for ever. You would remain young and never grow old. You would always live in affluent circumstances and never become destitute."

 Muslim 1179 The Prophet Said: "In Paradise there would be a tent made of hollowed pearl, sixty miles in diameter so that in each corner, there would be a family of believers, out of sight of the others."

Muslim 1181 The Prophet said: "The hearts of those who enter Paradise would be like those of the hearts of birds." (The commentator says that the hearts of birds are free from jealousy or rancour. He has not seen our seagulls arguing amongst each other, picking on each other and vying for food from picnickers.)

 Muslim 1182 A group was with the Prophet when they heard a terrible sound. "That," said the Prophet, "is a rock which was thrown seventy years ago in Hell and it has been constantly slipping down and now reached the bottom." Also the Prophet said: "There will be some to whose ankles the fire will reach, some to whose knees, and to whose waists and some to whose collar-bone the fire will reach."

 Muslim 1183 The Prophet said: "There is no death for the inmates of Hell-fire and that increases their grief. The molar tooth or the canine tooth of an unbeliever will be like Mt Uhud and the thickness of his skin a three nights' journey." (The new body will be so gross and formidable to last Hell-Fire for ever.) The Prophet said: "The distance of the two shoulders of the non-believer in Hell will be a three-day journey for a swift rider." Talking of mischief, the Prophet said that one of them flogged his wife as if she was a slave-girl, another laughs when he breaks wind. "I saw Amr. bin Amir al-Khuyai dragging his intestines in fire and he was the one who devoted animals to deity." "In Hell are people, in the wrath of Allah, in whose hands are whips thick like the tail of an ox.

 Muslim 1184 The Prophet said: "On the Day of Resurrection the people would be assembled barefooted, naked and uncircumcised." A'isha asked whether males and females would be together and look at each other. The Prophet replied that the matter would be too serious for that.

 Muslim 1185 The Prophet said: "On that Day the perspiration would spread upon the earth up to their ears. 'The sun would draw so close to the people that there would be left only a distance of one mile." (At the moment it is a little over 92,000,000 miles)

 Muslim 1187 The Prophet said: "When the dead body is placed in the grave, he listens to the sound of the shoes as his friends and relatives walk after burying him." He heard a sound and said "It is the Jews who are being tormented in their graves." "The souls of unbelievers are cursed and have a foul smell. The dead bodies of the unbelievers at Badr were left unburied for three days and then thrown in the well." (Yuk!)

Muslim 1226 The Prophet said: "When you yawn, you should try to restrain it with your hand to prevent Satan entering therein."

 Muslim 1227 The Prophet said: "A group of the Children of Israel was lost. I think that they turned into the shape of rats."

 Hadith Malik 16:71 Omar passed urine in a street and then performed ablution and washed his face and hands and did the wiping over the head. He was then called to do a funeral prayer. When he entered the mosque he did the wiping of the shoes.

 Hadithn Malik 20:81 The Prophet said that if pre-coital fluid should ooze out of the male sexual organ, wash it and perform ablution as for prayer.

 Hadith Malik (21:84) Sa'id said that one should not stop praying even if pro-static fluid flows down one's thigh.

 Hadith Malik (25:99) A'isha said that when the fore part of the penis penetrated the vagina, bath becomes obligatory even if there is no emission. (Malik 26:105) He should not sleep first.

 HadithMalik 29:114 Omar used to say: "There is no harm if a man takes a bath after a woman provided she is not in a state of menstruation or impurity."

 Hadith Malik 33:123 A'isha said that a man can have intercourse with a wife in menses if he tied a skirt on the lower part of the body and had intercourse with that.

 Hadith Malik 324:1099 Marwan gave as a gift a slave-girl to his son but told him: "Do not cohabit with her for I saw her naked shins."

 Hadith Malik 330:1113 The Prophet said: "When anyone of you marries a woman or buys a slave-girl, he should hold her forehead and pray for bliss, and when you buy a camel, put your hand on its hump and seek refuge from the evil of the cursed Satan."

 Hadith Malik 361:1216 When the master or husband of a slave-girl dies, her iddah (period of waiting to remarry) is two months and five days.

 Hadith Malik 362:1221 Ibn Fahd said: "I have some slave girls who are better than my wives, but I do not desire that they should all become pregnant. Shall I do azl (withdrawal) with them?" Hajjaj said: "They are your fields of cultivation. If you wish to irrigate them then do so, if not keep them dry."

Hadith Malik 364:1234 If a woman suckles a baby she becomes its foster mother and her husband a foster father. If a man has two wives and one suckles a boy and the other a girl, the boy cannot marry the girl as the foster father of each is the same. (On the other hand purdah is not necessary with foster relations). (Some of the ulama say that that suckling ten times is needed to establish a foster-relationship.)

 Hadith Malik 364:1239 The rule pertaining to foster-relationship only applies to children under two years. Thus (Malik 365:1243) A grown up man fed with milk of a woman does not entail fostership.

 Hadith Malik 365:1245 A man said: "My wife has wilfully given my slavegirl with whom I used to cohabit her own milk to drink. What is my relationship to my slave-girl?" Omar said: "Punish your wife and go into your slave-girl."

 Hadith Malik 366:1246 The Prophet said: "I had intended to prohibit the father from going into the mother while she breast-feeds her infant, but I came to know that the people of Rome and Persia did so without it affecting the offspring."

 Hadith Malik 441:1413 A man from Syria found a man with his wife and killed them both. The judge decided: "If four witnesses (to the adultery) are not found, he should be beheaded."

 Hadith Malik 443:1416 A woman's husband died and she observed iddah for four months and ten days and then married another. Barely four and a half months later she delivered a fully developed child. The husband reported the matter to Umar who consulted an old midwife. She said that menstrual blood must have continued despite her pregnancy to her first husband. Umar dissolved the marriage and told the woman: "It is just as well that no evil report reached me about you and that the paternity of your first husband has been verified."

 Hadith Malik 486:1511 A slave-girl had used sorcery on Hafsah, wife of the Prophet. The slave-girl was sentenced and executed.

 Hadith Malik 493:1520 Ma'iz bin Malik came to Abu Bakr and said: "I am a base fellow for I have committed adultery."

Abu Bakr replied: "Repent before the Lord and tell no one else." The man still felt guilty and went to Umar who gave him the same reply. Still feeling guilty he went to the Prophet who asked if he was ill or mad, married or single. On hearing that Ma'iz was healthy and married, the Prophet ordered him to be stoned to death.

 Hadith Malik 493:1524 The Prophet was told: "My son was employed with this man; he committed adultery with his wife. I gave 100 sheep and a slave girl in compensation." The Prophet said: "Take back your sheep and your slave girl. Your son will receive 100 lashes and a year in exile. As the adulteress has confessed she will be stoned."

 Hadith Malik 493:1530 Ibn Shihab said that a man committing sodomy should be stoned whether he be married or unmarried.

 Hadith Malik 496:1539 Two men were abusing each other. A said to B: "My parents were not adulterers." Umar took this to mean that A was implying that B's parents were and sentenced A to 80 lashes.

 Hadith Malik 496:1540 A man went on a journey with the slave-girl of his wife and went into her. The envious wife reported it to Umar who said the husband would be stoned unless the slave girl was owned by him. The wife spoke out to save him: "I had given her as a gift."

 Hadith Malik 497:1541 The Prophet ordered the cutting of the hand for the theft of a shield worth three dirhams.

 Hadith Malik 497:1542 The Prophet said: "The theft of fruit hanging from a tree or of a sheep straying on the hillside will not entail the cutting of a hand. When the sheep comes home or the fruit are picked and cut and they are stolen the hand will be cut off provided the price is 3 dirhams or more.

 Hadith Malik 499:1549 Safwan fell asleep in the mosque with a sheet of cloth under his head. A thief stole the sheet but Safwan woke up, caught him and took him to the Prophet. When Muhammad ordered his hand to be cut off Safwan relented and tried to say that he had given the thief the cloth. The Prophet said that it was now too late to rescind the decision.

 Hadith Malik 500:1551 A stranger from Yemen who already had his right hand and foot cut off stole a necklace at Medina. Abu Bakr (the first caliph) ordered his remaining hand cut off.

 Hadith Malik 511:1588 The last statement that Muhammad made was: "O Lord, perish the Jews and Christians. They made churches of the graves of their prophets. There shall be no two faiths in Arabia." (During the caliphates of the first four Caliphs this edict was fully carried out and all non-believers were removed from Arabia.)

 Hadith Malik 539:1681 The Prophet used to wear a gold ring. One day he threw it away; the people also threw their gold rings away. He had a silver ring made for him. The people followed suit.

 Hadith Malik 542:1687 There was a child crying in the house and the Prophet was told that it was affected by the evil eye. He told them to exorcise it.

 Hadith Malik 544:1692 Uthman had an acute pain that brought him near death. The Prophet told him to pass his right hand over the seat of the pain seven times and chant "I seek refuge in the honour and power of Allah from the evil that has come upon me." Uthman did so and the pain vanished.

 Hadith Malik 554:1725-7 The Prophet said that he who played chess disobeyed Allah and His Messenger.

A'isha considered chess evil. Umar would beat people playing chess and break the pieces. Malik said that playing chess is repugnant.

 Hadith Malik56:1743 The Prophet was displeased when A'isha bought a pillow painted with pictures. He said: "The makers of pictures will suffer on the Judgment Day."

 Hadith Malik 564:1755 The Prophet said that if a mouse falls in the solid ghee (cooking oil) take it out throw off what is around it and use the rest.

 Hadith Malik 565:1757-8 The Prophet said: "There was evil in three things; a horse, a woman and a house. Leave a house, if you think it evil."

 Hadith Malik 568:1765 Ka'b said to Umar to go to Iraq. There are nine parts of magic out of ten, and all mischievous and evil genii are there and there is a disease that has no cure.

 Hadith Malik 569:1768 A young Muslim saw a snake coiled up on his bed. He speared the snake and felt giddy and died. The Prophet commented: "In Medina, the Jinn have become Muslims (and taken the form of house snakes) If you see one, warn him for three days. If he still appears, kill him, it is Satan."

 Hadith Malik 571:1773 The Prophet said: "It is not proper for a woman to journey except with her mahram." (her father, brother, husband or son)

 Hadith Malik 588:1812 The Prophet said that man's fires are only one seventieth the parts of Hell-fire.

 Hadith Malik 594:1831 The Prophet said that he was Mahi, destroyer of non-believers; "Allah will destroy infidels through me."

 Mishkat 19 The Prophet, explaining to some women why they might be inmates of Hell said:"... I have seen that you are lacking in wisdom and religion and rob even wise men of their senses. Your lack of reason is shown in that your evidence is only equal to half that of a man. Your deficiency in faith is shown in that you neither fast nor pray when in a period of menses."

 Mishkat 32 The Prophet said: "The best deed is love for the sake of Allah and hatred for the sake of Allah."

 Mishkat 42 The Prophet said that there would not remain on the surface of the earth a single abode but Allah would bring the honour and humiliation of Islam....

 Mishkat 61 The Prophet said: " do not refrain from using pressure on your children with the view to training them and inculcating in them the fear of Allah."

 Mishkat 65,66,75 The Prophet said: "Sometimes the Satan asks "But who created God?" ... Then you should spit on the left side three times and seek refuge from Satan, the accursed."

 Mishkat 70 The Prophet said: "The cry of an infant at the moment of birth is due to the prick of the Satan."

 Mishkat 79,80 The Prophet said: "Allah prescribed the Decrees of all creatures 50,000 years before He created the heavens and the earth. His throne was on water. Everything has been decreed even in prudence and shrewdness."

 Mishkat 84 A'isha, talking about a dead baby said it would certainly be among the sparrows in Paradise as it was too young to have committed any evil. The Prophet disagreed saying that Allah created some persons for Hell, right from when they were still in their father's loins.

 Mishkat 91 The Prophet said Allah does not sleep... If Allah were to remove his veil, the illumination of His face would burn all His creation as far as His glance would reach.

 Mishkat 94 The Prophet said: "The first thing which Allah created was the Pen. He commanded It to write. But It said: "What shall I write?" Allah said: "Write the decree", so It wrote what had happened and what would happen up to eternity."

 Mishkat 98 Some Muslims were arguing about the Divine Decree. Muhammad came up angry, his face as red as a pomegranate kernel and asked if that was the reason he had been sent to them: "Those who had gone before you were destroyed as they disputed about it."
