Abu Bakr said, ''Let my parents be sacrificed for you, O Allah's Apostle! No distress or need will befall him who will be called from those gates. Will there be any one who will be called from all these gates?'' The Prophet replied, ''Yes, and I hope you will be one of them.''

After their entry the gate will be closed and nobody will enter through it.''

Umar asked the people, ''Who remembers the narration of the Prophet about the affliction?''

Umar said, ''I do not ask about that, but I ask about those afflictions which will spread like the waves of the sea.'' Hudhaifa replied, ''There is a closed gate in front of those afflictions.'' Umar asked, ''Will that gate be opened or broken?'' He replied, ''It will be broken.'' Umar said, ''Then the gate will not be closed again till the Day of Resurrection.'' We said to Masruq, ''Would you ask Hudhaifa whether Umar knew what that gate symbolized?'' He asked him and he replied ''He ('Umar) knew it as one knows that there will be night before tomorrow, morning.

Allah's Apostle said, ''Fasting is a shield (or a screen or a shelter). So, the person observing fasting should avoid sexual relation with his wife and should not behave foolishly and impudently, and if somebody fights with him or abuses him, he should tell him twice, I am fasting.'' The Prophet added, ''By Him in Whose Hands my soul is, the smell coming out from the mouth of a fasting person is better in the sight of Allah than the smell of musk. (Allah says about the fasting person), He has left his food, drink and desires for My sake. The fast is for Me. So I will reward (the fasting person) for it and the reward of good deeds is multiplied ten times.''

The bedouin further asked, ''Inform me what Allah has made compulsory for me as regards fasting.'' He replied, ''You have to fast during the whole month of Ramadan, unless you want to fast more as Nawafil.'' The bedouin further asked, ''Tell me how much Zakat Allah has enjoined on me.''

Would that one day I could Drink the water of the Majanna, and Would that (The two mountains) Shama and Tafil would appear to me!'' The Prophet said, ''O Allah! Curse Shaiba bin Rabi'a and Utba bin Rabi'a and Umaiya bin Khalaf as they turned us out of our land to the land of epidemics.'' Allah's Apostle then said, ''O Allah! Make us love Medina as we love Mecca or even more than that. O Allah! Give blessings in our Sa and our Mudd (measures symbolizing food) and make the climate of Medina suitable for us, and divert its fever towards Aljuhfa.''

Ad-Dajjal will say to the people, If I kill this man and bring him back to life again, will you doubt my claim?' They will say, No.' Then Ad-Dajjal will kill that man and bring him back to life. That man will say, Now I know your reality better than before.' Ad-Dajjal will say, I want to kill him but I cannot.' ''
