The Prophet offered the Maghrib and Isha' prayers together at Jam' (i.e. Al-Muzdalifa) with a separate Iqama for each of them and did not offer any optional prayer in between them or after each of them.
Mar 29, 2016
He said: O Iblis! What aileth thee that thou art not among the prostrate?
Allah's Apostle proceeded from Arafat and dismounted at the mountainous pass and then urinated and performed a light ablution. I said to him, ''(Shall we offer) the prayer?'' He replied, ''The prayer is ahead of you (i.e. at Al-Muzdalifa).'' When he came to Al-Muzdalifa, he performed a perfect ablution. Then Iqama for the prayer was pronounced and he offended the Maghrib prayer and then every person made his camel kneel at his place; and then Iqama for the prayer was pronounced and he offered the ('Isha') prayer and he did not offer any prayer in between them (i.e. Maghrib and Isha' prayers).
Mar 28, 2016
Save Iblis. He refused to be among the prostrate.
I proceeded along with the Prophet on the day of Arafat (9th Dhul-Hijja). The Prophet heard a great hue and cry and the beating of camels behind him. So he beckoned to the people with his lash, ''O people! Be quiet. Hastening is not a sign of righteousness.''
Mar 27, 2016
rode behind Allah's Apostle from Arafat and when Allah's Apostle reached the mountain pass on the left side which is before Al-Muzdalifa he made his camel kneel and then urinated and then I poured water for his ablution. He performed light ablution and then I said to him: (Is it the time for) the prayer, O Allah's Apostle!'' He replied, ''The (place of) prayer is ahead of you (i.e. at Al-Muzdalifa).'' So Allah's Apostle rode till he reached Al-Muzdalifa and then he offered the prayer (there) . Then in the morning (10th Dhul-Hijja) Al-Faql (bin Abbas) rode behind Allah's Apostle. Kuraib, (a sub-narrator) said that Abdullah bin Abbas narrated from Al-Fadl, ''Allah's Apostle (p.b.u.h) kept on reciting Talbiya (during the journey) till he reached the Jamra.'' (Jamrat-al-Aqaba)
Mar 26, 2016
So, when I have made him and have breathed into him of My Spirit, do ye fall down, prostrating yourselves unto him.
Abdullah bin Umar used to offer the Maghrib and Isha' prayers together at Jam' (Al-Muzdalifa). But he used to pass by that mountain pass where Allah's Apostle went, and he would enter it and answer the call of nature and perform ablution, and would not offer any prayer till he had prayed at Jam.'

And remember when thy Lord said unto the angels: Lo! I am creating a mortal out of potter's clay of black mud altered,
And remember when thy Lord said unto the angels: Lo! I am creating a mortal out of potter's clay of black mud altered,
As soon as the Prophet departed from Arafat, he went towards the mountain pass, and there he answered the call of) the prayer is ahead of you (i.e. at asked, ''O Allah's Apostle! Will you offer the prayer here?'' He replied, ''(The place of) the prayer is ahead of you (i.e. at Al-Muzdalifa).''
Mar 24, 2016
Usama was asked in my presence, ''How was the speed of (the camel of) Allah's Apostle while departing from Arafat during the Hajjatul Wada?'' Usama replied, ''The Prophet proceeded on with a modest pace, and when there was enough space he would (make his camel) go very fast.''

During the pre-lslamic period of Ignorance, the people used to perform Tawaf of the Ka'ba naked except the Hums; and the Hums were Quraish and their offspring. The Hums used to give clothes to the men who would perform the Tawaf wearing them; and women (of the Hums) used to give clothes to the women who would perform the Tawaf wearing them. Those to whom the Hums did not give clothes would perform Tawaf round the Ka'ba naked. Most of the people used to go away (disperse) directly from Arafat but they (Hums) used to depart after staying at Al-Muzdalifa. Urwa added, ''My father narrated that Aisha had said, The following verses were revealed about the Hums: Then depart from the place whence all the people depart–(2.199) Urwa added, ''They (the Hums) used to stay at Al-Muzdalifa and used to depart from there (to Mina) and so they were sent to Arafat (by Allah's order).''
Mar 22, 2016
My father said, ''(Before Islam) I was looking for my camel ..'' The same narration is told by a different sub-narrator. Jubair bin Mut'im said, ''My camel was lost and I went out in search of it on the day of Arafat, and I saw the Prophet standing in Arafat. I said to myself: By Allah he is from the Hums (literally: strictly religious, Quraish were called so, as they used to say, We are the people of Allah we shall not go out of the sanctuary). What has brought him here?''

Abdul-Malik bin Marwan wrote to Al-Hajjaj that he should follow Abdullah bin Umar in all the ceremonies of Hajj. So when it was the Day of Arafat (9th of Dhul-Hajja), and after the sun has deviated or has declined from the middle of the sky, I and Ibn Umar came and he shouted near the cotton (cloth) tent of Al-Hajjaj, ''Where is he?'' Al-Hajjaj came out. Ibn Umar said, ''Let us proceed (to Arafat).'' Al-Hajjaj asked, ''Just now?'' Ibn Umar replied, ''Yes.'' Al-Hajjaj said, ''Wait for me till I pour water on me (i.e. take a bath).'' So, Ibn Umar dismounted (and waited) till Al-Hajjaj came out. He was walking between me and my father. I informed Al-Hajjaj, ''If you want to follow the Sunna today, then you should shorten the sermon and then hurry up for the stay (at Arafat).'' Ibn Umar said, ''He (Salim) has spoken the truth.''
Mar 20, 2016
Lo! and it is We, even We, Who quicken and give death, and We are the Inheritor.
On the day of Arafat, some people who were with me, differed about the fasting of the Prophet (p.b.u.h) some said that he was fasting while others said that he was not fasting. So I sent a bowl full of milk to him while he was riding his camel, and he drank that milk.
Mar 19, 2016
And We send the winds fertilising, and cause water to descend from the sky, and give it you to drink. It is not ye who are the holders of the store thereof.
Abdul Malik wrote to Al-Hajjaj that he should not differ from Ibn Umar during Hajj. On the Day of Arafat, when the sun declined at midday, Ibn Umar came along with me and shouted near Al-Hajjaj's cotton (cloth) tent. Al-Hajjaj came Out, wrapping himself with a waist-sheet dyed with safflower, and said, ''O Abu Abdur-Rahman! What is the matter?'' He said, If you want to follow the Sunna (the tradition of the Prophet (p.b.u.h) ) then proceed (to Arafat).'' Al-Hajjaj asked, ''At this very hour?'' Ibn Umar said, ''Yes.'' He replied, ''Please wait for me till I pour some water over my head (i.e. take a bath) and come out.'' Then Ibn Umar dismounted and waited till Al-Hajjaj came out. So, he (Al-Hajjaj) walked in between me and my father (Ibn Umar). I said to him, ''If you want to follow the Sunna then deliver a brief sermon and hurry up for the stay at Arafat.'' He started looking at Abdullah (Ibn Umar) (inquiringly), and when Abdullah noticed that, he said that he had told the truth.
Mar 18, 2016
And there is not a thing but with Us are the stores thereof. And we send it not down save in appointed measure.
I asked Anas bin Malik while we were proceeding from Mina to Arafat, ''What do you use to do on this day when you were with Allah's Apostle ?'' Anas said, ''Some of us used to recite Talbiya and nobody objected to that, and others used to recite Takbir and nobody objected to that.''
Mar 17, 2016
The people doubted whether the Prophet was observing the fast on the Day of Arafat, so I sent something for him to drink and he drank it.
Mar 16, 2016
I offered (only a) two Rakat prayer with the Prophet (at Mina), and similarly with Abu Bakr and with Umar, and then you d offered in opinions. Wish that I would be lucky enough to have two of the four Rakat accepted (by Allah).
Mar 15, 2016
Save him who stealeth the hearing, and them doth a clear flame pursue.

I went out to Mina on the day of Tarwiya and met Anas going on a donkey. I asked him, ''Where did the Prophet offer the Zuhr prayer on this day?'' Anas replied, ''See where your chiefs pray and pray similarly.''
Mar 12, 2016
They would say: Our sight is wrong - nay, but we are folk bewitched.
I asked Anas bin Malik, ''Tell me what you remember from Allah's Apostle (regarding these questions): Where did he offer the Zuhr and Asr prayers on the day of Tarwiya (8th day of Dhul-Hajja)?'' He relied, ''(He offered these prayers) at Mina.'' I asked, ''Where did he offer the Asr prayer on the day of Nafr (i.e. departure from Mina on the 12th or 13th of Dhul-Hijja)?'' He replied, ''At Al-Abtah,'' and then added, ''You should do as your chiefs do.''
Mar 11, 2016
(On Id) We used to forbid our virgins to go out (for Id prayer). A lady came and stayed at the Palace of Bani Khalaf. She mentioned that her sister was married to one of the companions of Allah's Apostle who participated in twelve Ghazawats along with Allah's Apostle and her sister was with him in six of them. She said, ''We used to dress the wounded and look after the patients.'' She (her sister) asked Allah's Apostle , ''Is there any harm for a woman to stay at home if she doesn't have a veil?'' He said, ''She should cover herself with the veil of her companion and she should take part in the good deeds and in the religious gatherings of the believers.'' When Um Atiyya came, I asked her. ''Did you hear anything about that?'' Um Atiyya said, ''Bi Abi'' and she never mentioned the name of Allah's Apostle without saying ''Bi Abi'' (i.e. Let my father be sacrificed for you'). We asked her, ''Have you heard Allah's Apostle saying so and so (about women)?'' She replied in the affirmative and said, ''Let my father be sacrificed for him. He told us that unmarried mature virgins who stay often screened or unmarried young virgins and mature girls who stay often screened should come out and take part in the good deeds and in the religious gatherings of the believers. But the menstruating women should keep away from the Musalla (praying place).'' I asked her, ''The menstruating women?'' She replied, ''Don't they present themselves at Arafat and at such and such places?''
Mar 10, 2016
They believe not therein, though the example of the men of old hath gone before.
The Prophet and his companions assumed Ihram for Hajj and none except the Prophet (p.b.u.h) and Talha had the Hadi (sacrifice) with them. Ali arrived from Yemen and had a Hadi with him. Ali said, ''I have assumed Ihram for what the Prophet has done.'' The Prophet ordered his companions to perform the Umra with the lhram which they had assumed, and after finishing Tawaf (of Ka'ba, Safa and Marwa) to cut short their hair, and to finish their lhram except those who had Hadi with them. They (the people) said, ''How can we proceed to Mina (for Hajj) after having sexual relations with our wives?'' When that news reached the Prophet he said, ''If I had formerly known what I came to know lately, I would not have brought the Hadi with me. Had there been no Hadi with me, I would have finished the state of lhram.'' Aisha got her menses, so she performed all the ceremonies of Hajj except Tawaf of the Ka'ba, and when she got clean (from her menses), she performed Tawaf of the Ka'ba. She said, ''O Allah's Apostle! (All of you) are returning with the Hajj and Umra, but I am returning after performing Hajj only.'' So the Prophet ordered Abdur-Rahman bin Abu Bakr to accompany her to Tan'im and thus she performed the Umra after the Hajj.

Thus do We make it traverse the hearts of the guilty:
I was menstruating when I reached Mecca. So, I neither performed Tawaf of the Ka'ba, nor the Tawaf between Safa and Marwa. Then I informed Allah's Apostle about it. He replied, ''Perform all the ceremonies of Hajj like the other pilgrims, but do not perform Tawaf of the Ka'ba till you get clean (from your menses).''
Mar 8, 2016
And never came there unto them a messenger but they did mock him.
Mar 7, 2016
I asked Anas bin Malik: ''Did you use to dislike to perform Tawaf between Safa and Marwa?'' He said, ''Yes, as it was of the ceremonies of the days of the Pre-lslamic period of ignorance, till Allah revealed: Verily! (The two mountains) As-Safa and Al-Marwa are among the symbols of Allah. It is therefore no sin for him who performs the pilgrimage to the Ka'ba, or performs Umra, to perform Tawaf between them.' '' (2.158)
Mar 6, 2016
Lo! We, even We, reveal the Reminder, and lo! We verily are its Guardian.
I heard Ibn Umar saying, ''The Prophet arrived at Mecca and performed Tawaf of the Ka'ba and then offered a two-Rakat prayer and then performed Tawaf between Safa and Marwa.'' Ibn Umar then recited (the verse): ''Verily! In Allah's Apostle (p.b.u.h) you have a good example. ''
Mar 5, 2016
We send not down the angels save with the Fact, and in that case the disbelievers would not be tolerated.
We asked Ibn Umar whether a man who, while performing Umra, had performed Tawaf of the Ka'ba; and had not yet performed Tawaf between Safa and Marwa, could have sexual relation with his wife, Ibn Umar replied ''The Prophet (p.b.u.h) reached Mecca and performed the seven rounds (of Tawaf) of the Ka'ba and then offered a two-Rakat prayer behind Maqam ibrahim and then performed the seven rounds (of Tawaf) between Safa and Marwa.'' He added, ''Verily! In Allah's Apostle (p.b.u.h) you have a good example.'' We asked Jabir bin Abdullah (the same question) and he said, ''He (that man) should not come near (his wife) till he has completed Tawaf between Safa and Marwa.''
Mar 4, 2016
Why bringest thou not angels unto us, if thou art of the truthful?
Ibn Umar said, ''When Allah's Apostle performed the first Tawaf he did Ramal in the first three rounds and then walked in the remaining four rounds (of Tawaf of the Ka'ba), where as in performing Tawaf between Safa and Marwa he used to run in the midst of the rain-water passage,'' I asked Nafi', ''Did Abdullah (bin Umar) use to walk steadily on reaching the Yemenite Corner?'' He replied, ''No, unless people were crowded at the Corner; otherwise he would not leave it without touching it.''
Mar 3, 2016
I asked Aisha : ''How do you interpret the statement of Allah,. : Verily! (the mountains) As-Safa and Al-Marwa are among the symbols of Allah, and whoever performs the Hajj to the Ka'ba or performs Umra, it is not harmful for him to perform Tawaf between them (Safa and Marwa.) (2.158). By Allah! (it is evident from this revelation) there is no harm if one does not perform Tawaf between Safa and Marwa.'' Aisha said, ''O, my nephew! Your interpretation is not true. Had this interpretation of yours been correct, the statement of Allah should have been, It is not harmful for him if he does not perform Tawaf between them.' But in fact, this divine inspiration was revealed concerning the Ansar who used to assume lhram for worship ping an idol called ''Manat'' which they used to worship at a place called Al-Mushallal before they embraced Islam, and whoever assumed Ihram (for the idol), would consider it not right to perform Tawaf between Safa and Marwa. When they embraced Islam, they asked Allah's Apostle (p.b.u.h) regarding it, saying, ''O Allah's Apostle! We used to refrain from Tawaf between Safa and Marwa.'' So Allah revealed: Verily; (the mountains) As-Safa and Al-Marwa are among the symbols of Allah.' '' Aisha added, ''Surely, Allah's Apostle set the tradition of Tawaf between Safa and Marwa, so nobody is allowed to omit the Tawaf between them.'' Later on I ('Urwa) told Abu Bakr bin Abdur-Rahman (of Aisha's narration) and he said, i have not heard of such information, but I heard learned men saying that all the people, except those whom Aisha mentioned and who used to assume lhram for the sake of Manat, used to perform Tawaf between Safa and Marwa. When Allah referred to the Tawaf of the Ka'ba and did not mention Safa and Marwa in the Quran, the people asked, O Allah's Apostle! We used to perform Tawaf between Safa and Marwa and Allah has revealed (the verses concerning) Tawaf of the Ka'ba and has not mentioned Safa and Marwa. Is there any harm if we perform Tawaf between Safa and Marwa?' So Allah revealed: ''Verily As-Safa and Al-Marwa are among the symbols of Allah.'' Abu Bakr said, ''It seems that this verse was revealed concerning the two groups, those who used to refrain from Tawaf between Safa and Marwa in the Pre-lslamic Period of ignorance and those who used to perform the Tawaf then, and after embracing Islam they refrained from the Tawaf between them as Allah had enjoined Tawaf of the Ka'ba and did not mention Tawaf (of Safa and Marwa) till later after mentioning the Tawaf of the Ka'ba.'
Mar 2, 2016
I asked Urwa bin Az-Zubair (regarding the Hajj of the Prophet ). Urwa replied, ''Aisha narrated, When the Prophet reached Mecca, the first thing he started with was the ablution, then he performed Tawaf of the Ka'ba and his intention was not Umra alone (but Hajj and Umra together).' '' Later Abu Bakr I performed the Hajj and the first thing he started with was Tawaf of the Ka'ba and it was not Umra alone (but Hajj and Umra together). And then Umar did the same. Then Uthman performed the Hajj and the first thing he started with was Tawaf of the Ka'ba and it was not Umra alone. And then Muawiya and Abdullah bin Umar did the same. I performed Hajj with Ibn Az-Zubair and the first thing he started with was Tawaf of the Ka'ba and it was not Umra alone, (but Hajj and Umra together). Then I saw the Muhajirin (Emigrants) and Ansar doing the same and it was not Umra alone. And the last person I saw doing the same was Ibn Umar, and he did not do another Umra after finishing the first. Now here is Ibn Umar present amongst the people! They neither ask him nor anyone of the previous ones. And all these people, on entering Mecca, would not start with anything unless they had performed Tawaf of the Ka'ba, and would not finish their Ihram. And no doubt, I saw my mother and my aunt, on entering Mecca doing nothing before performing Tawaf of the Ka'ba, and they would not finish their lhram. And my mother informed me that she, her sister, Az-Zubair and such and such persons had assumed lhram for Umra and after passing their hands over the Corner (the Black Stone) (i.e. finishing their Umra) they finished their Ihram.''
Mar 1, 2016
And We destroyed no township but there was a known decree for it.
Ibn Umar intended to perform Hajj in the year when Al-Hajjaj attacked Ibn Az-Zubair. Somebody said to Ibn Umar, ''There is a danger of an impending war between them.'' Ibn Umar said, ''Verily, in Allah's Apostle you have a good example. (And if it happened as you say) then I would do the same as Allah's Apostle had done. I make you witness that I have decided to perform Umra.'' Then he set out and when he reached Al-Baida', he said, ''The ceremonies of both Hajj and Umra are similar. I make you witness that I have made Hajj compulsory for me along with Umra.'' He drove (to Mecca) a Hadi which he had bought from (a place called) Qudaid and did not do more than that. He did not slaughter the Hadi or finish his Ihram, or shave or cut short his hair till the day of slaughtering the sacrifices (10th Dhul-Hijja). Then he slaughtered his Hadi and shaved his head and considered the first Tawaf (of Safa and Marwa) as sufficient for Hajj and Umra. Ibn Umar said, ''Allah's Apostle did the same.''
