Abu Huraira said, ''The Prophet saw a man driving a Badana (sacrificial camel). The Prophet (p.b.u.h) said (to him), Ride on it.' He replied, It is a Badana.' The Prophet again said, Ride on it!' Abu Huraira added, Then I saw that man riding it, showing obedience to the Prophet (p.b.u.h), and a shoe was (hanging) from its neck.' ''

He said: And afterward what is your business, O ye messengers of Allah?
Abdullah bin Abu Bakr bin Amr bin Hazm that Amra bint Abdur-Rahman had told him ''Zaid bin Abu Sufyan wrote to Aisha that Abdullah bin Abbas had stated, Whoever sends his Hadi (to the Ka'ba), all the things which are illegal for a (pilgrim) become illegal for that person till he slaughters it (i.e. till the 10th of Dhul-Hijja).' '' Amra added, Aisha said, It is not like what Ibn Abbas had said: I twisted the garlands of the Hadis of Allah's Apostle with my own hands. Then Allah's Apostle put them round their necks with his own hands, sending them with my father; Yet nothing permitted by Allah was considered illegal for Allah's Apostle till he slaughtered the Hadis.' ''
Apr 22, 2016
He said: And who despaireth of the mercy of his Lord save those who are astray?
I twisted the garlands for the Hadis of the Prophet and then he marked and garlanded them (or I garlanded them) and then made them proceed to the Ka'ba but he remained in Medina and no permissible thing was regarded as illegal for him then .
Apr 21, 2016
They said: We bring thee good tidings in truth. So be not thou of the despairing.
Allah's Apostle used to send the Hadi from Medina and I used to twist the garlands for his Hadi and he did not keep away from any of these things which a Muhrim keeps away from.
Apr 20, 2016
He said: Bring ye me good tidings of a son when old age hath overtaken me? Of what then can ye bring good tidings?
I said, ''O Allah's Apostle! What is wrong with the people, they have finished their Ihram but you have not?'' He said, ''I matted my hair and I have garlanded my Hadi, so I will not finish my Ihram till I finished my Hajj .''
Apr 19, 2016
I twisted with my own hands the garlands for the Budn of the Prophet who garlanded and marked them, and then made them proceed to Mecca; Yet no permissible thing was regarded as illegal for him then.

How when they came in unto him, and said: Peace. He said: Lo! we are afraid of you.
The Prophet set out from Medina with over one thousand of his companions (at the time of the Treaty of Hudaibiya) and when they reached Dhul-Hulaifa, the Prophet garlanded his Hadi and marked it and assumed Ihram for'Umra.

And tell them of Abraham's guests,
Abdullah (bin Abdullah) bin Umar said to his father, ''Stay here, for I am afraid that it (affliction between Ibn Zubair and Al-Hajjaj) might prevent you from reaching the Ka'ba.'' Ibn Umar said, ''(In this case) I would do the same as Allah's Apostle did, and Allah has said, Verily, in Allah's Apostle, you have a good example (to follow).' So, I make you, people, witness that I have made Umra compulsory for me.'' So he assumed lhram for'Umra. Then he went out and when he reached Al-Baida', he assumed Ihram for Hajj and Umra (together) and said, ''The conditions (requisites) of Hajj and Umra are the same.'' He, then brought a Hadi from Qudaid. Then he arrived (at Mecca) and performed Tawaf (between Safa and Marwa) once for both Hajj and Umra and did not finish the lhram till he had finished both Hajj and Umra.
Apr 16, 2016
And that My doom is the dolorous doom.
During the last Hajj (Hajj-al-Wada') of Allah's Apostle he performed Umra and Hajj. He drove a Hadi along with him from Dhul-Hulaifa. Allah's Apostle started by assuming Ihram for'Umra and Hajj. And the people, too, performed the Umra and Hajj along with the Prophet. Some of them brought the Hadi and drove it along with them, while the others did not. So, when the Prophet arrived at Mecca. he said to the people, ''Whoever among you has driven the Hadi, should not finish his Ihram till he completes his Hajj. And whoever among you has not (driven) the Hadi with him, should perform Tawaf of the Ka'ba and the Tawaf between Safa and Marwa, then cut short his hair and finish his Ihram, and should later assume Ihram for Hajj; but he must offer a Hadi (sacrifice); and if anyone cannot afford a Hadi, he should fast for three days during the Hajj and seven days when he returns home. The Prophet performed Tawaf of the Ka'ba on his arrival (at Mecca); he touched the (Black Stone) corner first of all and then did Ramal (fast walking with moving of the shoulders) during the first three rounds round the Ka'ba, and during the last four rounds he walked. After finishing Tawaf of the Ka'ba, he offered a two Rakat prayer at Maqam Ibrahim, and after finishing the prayer he went to Safa and Marwa and performed seven rounds of Tawaf between them and did not do any deed forbidden because of Ihram, till he finished all the ceremonies of his Hajj and sacrificed his Hadi on the day of Nahr (10th day of Dhul-Hijja). He then hastened onwards (to Mecca) and performed Tawaf of the Ka'ba and then everything that was forbidden because of Ihram became permissible. Those who took and drove the Hadi with them did the same as Allah's Apostle did.

Announce, O Muhammad unto My slaves that verily I am the Forgiving, the Merciful,
The Prophet saw a man driving a Badana. He said, ''Ride on it.'' The man replied, ''It is a Badana.'' The Prophet said (again), ''Ride on it.'' He (the man) said, ''It is a Badana.'' The Prophet said thrice, ''Ride on it.''
Apr 14, 2016
Toil cometh not unto them there, nor will they be expelled from thence.
Allah's Apostle (p.b.u.h) saw a man driving his Badana (sacrificial camel). He said, ''Ride on it.'' The man said, ''It is a Badana.'' The Prophet said, ''Ride on it.'' He (the man) said, ''It is a Badana.'' The Prophet said, ''Ride on it.'' And on the second or the third time he (the Prophet ) added, ''Woe to you.''

And We remove whatever rancour may be in their breasts. As brethren, face to face, they rest on couches raised.
I asked Ibn Abbas about Hajj-at-Tamattu'. He ordered me to perform it. I asked him about the Hadi (sacrifice). He said, ''You have to slaughter a camel, a cow or a sheep, or you may share the Hadi with the others.'' It seemed that some people disliked it (Hajj-at-Tamattu). I slept and dreamt as if a person was announcing: ''Hajj Mabrur and accepted Mut'ah (Hajj-At-Tamattu')'' I went to Ibn Abbas and narrated it to him. He said, ''Allah is Greater. (That was) the tradition of Abu Al-Qasim (i.e. Prophet). Narrated Shu'ba that the call in the dream was. ''An accepted Umra and Hajj-Mabrur. ''
Apr 12, 2016
Ibn Abbas said, ''Usama bin Zaid rode behind the Prophet from Arafat to Al-Muzdalifa; and then from Al-Muzdalifa to Mina, Al-Fadl rode behind him.'' He added, ''Both of them (Usama and Al-Fadl) said, The Prophet was constantly reciting Talbiya till he did Rami of the Jamarat-al-'Aqaba.''
Apr 11, 2016
The Prophet made Al-Faql ride behind him, and Al-Fadl informed that he (the Prophet ) kept on reciting Talbiya till he did the Rami of the Jamra. (Jamrat-al-Aqaba.)
Apr 10, 2016
I saw Umar, offering the Fajr (morning) prayer at Jam'; then he got up and said, ''The pagans did not use to depart (from Jam') till the sun had risen, and they used to say, Let the sun shine on Thabir (a mountain).' But the Prophet contradicted them and departed from Jam' before sunrise.''
Apr 9, 2016
to Mecca and when we proceeded to am' he offered the two prayers (the Maghrib and the Isha') together, making the Adhan and Iqama separately for each prayer. He took his supper in between the two prayers. He offered the Fajr prayer as soon as the day dawned. Some people said, ''The day had dawned (at the time of the prayer),'' and others said, ''The day had not dawned.'' Abdullah then said, ''Allah's Apostle said, These two prayers have been shifted from their stated times at this place only (at Al-Muzdalifa); first: The Maghrib and the Isha'. So the people should not arrive at Al-Muzdalifa till the time of the Isha' prayer has become due. The second prayer is the morning prayer which is offered at this hour.' '' Then Abdullah stayed there till it became a bit brighter. He then said, ''If the chief of the believers hastened onwards to Mina just now, then he had indeed followed the Sunna.'' I do not know which proceeded the other, his ('Abdullah's) statement or the departure of Uthman . Abdullah was reciting Talbiya till he threw pebbles at the Jamrat-al-'Aqaba on the Day of Nahr (slaughtering) (that is the 10th of Dhul-Hijja).

Surah al Kahf is the 18th Surah of Quran and it tells the story of the believers in ancient time who when received the message of Truth accepted it. However, they were to face retaliation from the society they lived in and hence the flee from the city and found protection in a cave where Allah Almighty gave them sleep that lasted for centuries and till then their whole city had converted into believers. This Surah gives the message that those who believe in Allah and ask for protection from Him, He gives them the best protection the likes of which the world has never seen. Besides this illuminating message, the Surah also comes with a variety of virtues as described in the hadith of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). The lines below discuss those virtues.
It is narrated by Abu Saeed al-Khurdi, who said:
“Whoever reads Surah al Kahf on the night of Jummah, will have a light that will stretch between him and the Ancient House (Kabah).” (al-Jaami)
This hadith goes on to show the power of the Surah when recited on Friday night. The hadith shows that the Surah brings light to the reader and the stretch of the light covers the area between Kabah and the reader, no matter how far away the reader is from the House of Allah. This stretch of light can be loosely considered as the light of blessings and mercy of Allah. Thus, by reciting the Surah on Friday night one can get hold of such magnanimous mercy and blessings.
Regarding the recitation of Surah al Kahf on Friday night, another hadith narrates:
“Whoever reads Surah al Kahf on the day of Jummah will have a light that will shine from him from one Friday to the next.” (al-Jaami)
Therefore, on Friday night, a Muslim must find time to sit down and read Surah al Kahf and become one of the blessed ones.
Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said:
“One who memorized the first ten verses of Surah al Kahf will be secure against the Dajjal (Anti-Christ).” (Muslim)
Dajjal is one of the prominent figures of end of times and he will bring destruction to mankind. He will bring destruction and havoc to the world and because of his might people with low and weak faith will turn towards him and gather with him. At that time those who believe will ask help from Allah Almighty to protect them against his destruction. Therefore, if one wishes to be safe during the time of such grave adversity and annihilation, then one should try to memorize the first ten verses of Surah al Kahf and try reciting them whenever the chance becomes available.
Hazrat Ibn Mardwiyah Al Daiyaa (RA) said that Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said in a hadith:
“Whoever reads Surah al Kahf on yaumul Jummah, he is immune for 8 days from all fitnah that will happen. When the Dajjal comes out, he will be immune to him.”
On the Authority of Hazrat Aisha (RA); the Prophet (PBUH) said:
“Shall I not inform you of a Surah which is so full of greatness it reaches between the heaven and earth and it has blessings written for it of similar proportions (from the sky to earth) whoever reads it on Yaumul Jummah is forgiven what occurred between that Jummah and the next, in addition to 3 days (i.e. 10days in all) and whoever reads the last five ayat of it when he goes to sleep, Allah will send him that night what he wants. They said, Yes, O Messenger of Allah. He said: Sura Ashabul Kahf.”
This hadith gives a variety of virtues of reading and reciting Surah al Kahf on the day of Jummah. The first virtue is that the person gets forgiven from one Friday to the next including the last three days as well. Meaning that by reading Surah al Kahf on Friday one gets to be free of sin for ten days. The second virtue described in the hadith is the granting of whatever a person wishes if he or she sleeps after reciting the last five verses of Surah al Kahf. Therefore, by reading Surah al Kahf on Friday nights and before going to sleep every night one gets the benefits of expatiating from sins as well as granting of wishes, therefore, every Muslim who is in need of these two virtues must make sure that they form the habit of reciting Surah al Kahf every night in general and on Friday nights in particular.
In a nutshell, Surah al Kahf is one of the renowned Surahs of Quran. Besides giving the message of Allah protecting those in miraculous ways who stick to righteousness and stay on the right path, the Surah also comes with a variety of virtues. It helps one expatiate from sins, gain blessings of Allah Almighty and prepare one’s self for the end of days. Therefore, every Muslim man and woman must try getting into the habit of reciting Surah al Kahf on regular bases.
Lo! as for My slaves, thou hast no power over any of them save such of the froward as follow thee,
I never saw the Prophet offering any prayer not at its stated time except two; he prayed the Maghrib and the Isha' together and he offered the morning prayer before its usual time.

He said: This is a right course incumbent upon Me:
We got down at Al-Muzdalifa and Sauda asked the permission of the Prophet to leave (early) before the rush of the people. She was a slow woman and he gave her permission, so she departed (from Al-Muzdalifa) before the rush of the people. We kept on staying at Al-Muzdalifa till dawn, and set out with the Prophet but (I suffered so much that) I wished I had taken the permission of Allah's Apostle as Sauda had done, and that would have been dearer to me than any other happiness.
Apr 6, 2016
Sauda asked the permission of the Prophet to leave earlier at the night of Jam', and she was a fat and very slow woman. The Prophet gave her permission.
Apr 5, 2016
(the slave of Asma') During the night of Jam', Asma' got down at Al-Muzdalifa and stood up for (offering) the prayer and offered the prayer for some time and then asked, ''O my son! Has the moon set?'' I replied in the negative and she again prayed for another period and then asked, ''Has the moon set?'' I replied, ''Yes.'' So she said that we should set out (for Mina), and we departed and went on till she threw pebbles at the Jamra (Jamrat-al-Aqaba) and then she returned to her dwelling place and offered the morning prayer. I asked her, ''O you! I think we have come (to Mina) early in the night.'' She replied, ''O my son! Allah's Apostle gave permission to the women to do so.''
Apr 4, 2016
I as among those whom the Prophet sent on the night of Al-Muzdalifa early being among the weak members of his family.
Apr 3, 2016
He said: Then lo! thou art of those reprieved
Apr 2, 2016
Abdullah bin Umar used to send the weak among his family early to Mina. So they used to depart from Al-Mash'ar Al-Haram (that is Al-Muzdalifa) at night (when the moon had set) and invoke Allah as much as they could, and then they would return (to Mina) before the Imam had started from Al-Muzdalifa to Mina. So some of them would reach Mina at the time of the Fajr prayer and some of them would come later. When they reached Mina they would throw pebbles on the Jamra (Jamrat-al-Aqaba) Ibn Umar used to say, ''Allah's Apostle gave the permission to them (weak people) to do so.''
Apr 1, 2016
Abdullah;- performed the Hajj and we reached Al-Muzdalifa at or about the time of the Isha' prayer. He ordered a man to pronounce the Adhan and Iqama and then he offered the Maghrib prayer and offered two Rakat after it. Then he asked for his supper and took it, and then, I think, he ordered a man to pronounce the Adhan and Iqama (for the isha' prayer). ('Amr, a sub-narrator said: The intervening statement I think', was said by the sub-narrator Zuhair) (i.e. not by Abdu-Rahman). Then Abdullah offered two Rakat of Isha' prayer. When the day dawned, Abdullah said, ''The Prophet never offered any prayer at this hour except this prayer at this time and at this place and on this day.'' Abdullah added, ''These two prayers are shifted from their actual times — the Maghrib prayer (is offered) when the people reached Al-Muzdalifa and the Fajr (morning) prayer at the early dawn.'' Abdullah added, ''I saw the Prophet doing that.''
