And who doth greater wrong than he who hath been reminded of the revelations of his Lord, yet turneth away from them and forgetteth what his hands send forward to the Judgment? Lo! on their hearts We have placed coverings so that they understand not, and in their ears a deafness. And though thou call them to the guidance, in that case they can never be led aright.
that his uncle said: ''The Prophet was asked: If a person feels something during his prayer; should one interrupt his prayer?'' The Prophet said: No! You should not give it up unless you hear a sound or smell something.'' Narrated Ibn Abi Hafsa: Az-Zuhri said, ''There is no need of repeating ablution unless you detect a smell or hear a sound.''

The Prophet passed by a fallen date and said, ''Were it not for my doubt that this might have been given in charity, I would have eaten it.'' And narrated Abu Huraira the Prophet said, ''I found a date-fruit fallen on my bed.''
We send not the messengers save as bearers of good news and warners. Those who disbelieve contend with falsehood in order to refute the Truth thereby. And they take Our revelations and that wherewith they are threatened as a jest.

And naught hindereth mankind from believing when the guidance cometh unto them, and from asking forgiveness of their Lord unless it be that they wish that the judgment of the men of old should come upon them or that they should be confronted with the Doom.
I asked Allah's Apostle about Al Mirad (i.e. a sharp-edged piece of wood or a piece of wood provided with a piece of iron used for hunting). He replied, ''If the game is hit by its sharp edge, eat it, and if it is hit by its broad side, do not eat it, for it has been beaten to death.'' I asked, ''O Allah's Apostle! I release my dog by the name of Allah and find with it at the game, another dog on which I have not mentioned the name of Allah, and I do not know which one of them caught the game.'' Allah's Apostle said (to him), Don't eat it as you have mentioned the name of Allah on your dog and not on the other dog.''

Utba bin Abu Waqqas took a firm promise from his brother Sad bin Abu Waqqas to take the son of the slave-girl of Zam'a into his custody as he was his (i.e. Utba's) son. In the year of the Conquest (of Mecca) Sad bin Abu Waqqas took him, and said that he was his brother's son, and his brother took a promise from him to that effect. Abu bin Zam'a got up and said, ''He is my brother and the son of the slave-girl of my father and was born on my father's bed.'' Then they both went to the Prophet Sad said, ''O Allah's Apostle! He is the son of my brother and he has taken a promise from me that I will take him.'' Abu bin Zam'a said, ''(He is) my brother and the son of my father's slave-girl and was born on my father's bed.'' Allah's Apostle said, ''The boy is for you. O Abu bin Zam'a.'' Then the Prophet said, ''The son is for the bed (i.e the man on whose bed he was born) and stones (disappointment and deprivation) for the one who has done illegal sexual intercourse.'' The Prophet told his wife Sauda bint Zam'a to screen herself from that boy as he noticed a similarity between the boy and Utba. So, the boy did not see her till he died.

And the guilty behold the Fire and know that they are about to fall therein, and they find no way of escape thence.
Mar 22, 2017
The Prophet said ''Both legal and illegal things are obvious, and in between them are (suspicious) doubtful matters. So who-ever forsakes those doubtful things lest he may commit a sin, will definitely avoid what is clearly illegal; and who-ever indulges in these (suspicious) doubtful things bravely, is likely to commit what is clearly illegal. Sins are Allah's Hima (i.e. private pasture) and whoever pastures (his sheep) near it, is likely to get in it at any moment.''
And be mindful of the Day when He will say: Call those partners of Mine whom ye pretended. Then they will cry unto them, but they will not hear their prayer, and We shall set a gulf of doom between them.

Ukaz, Majanna and Dhul-Majaz were market-places in the Pre-lslamic period of ignorance. When Islam came, Muslims felt that marketing there might be a sin. So, the Divine Inspiration came: ''There is no harm for you to seek the bounty of your Lord (in the seasons of Hajj).'' (2.198) Ibn Abbas recited the Verse in this way.

When Abdur-Rahman bin Auf came to Medina, the Prophet established a bond of brotherhood between him and Sad bin Ar-Rabi al-Ansari. Sad was a rich man, so he said to Abdur-Rahman, ''I will give you half of my property and will help you marry.'' Abdur-Rahman said (to him), ''May Allah bless you in your family and property. Show me the market.'' So Abdur-Rahman did not return from the market) till he gained some dried buttermilk (yoghurt) and butter (through trading). He brought that to his house-hold. We stayed for some-time (or as long as Allah wished), and then Abdur-Rahman came, scented with yellowish perfume. The Prophet said (to him) ''What is this?'' He replied, ''I got married to an Ansari woman.'' The Prophet asked, ''What did you pay her?'' He replied, ''A gold stone or gold equal to the weight of a date stone.'' The Prophet said (to him), ''Give a wedding banquet even if with one sheep.''
And remember when We said unto the angels: Fall prostrate before Adam, and they fell prostrate, all save Iblis. He was of the jinn, so he rebelled against his Lord's command. Will ye choose him and his seed for your protecting friends instead of Me, when they are an enemy unto you? Calamitous is the exchange for evil-doers.

And the Book is placed, and thou seest the guilty fearful of that which is therein, and they say: What kind of a Book is this that leaveth not a small thing nor a great thing but hath counted it! And they find all that they did confronting them, and thy Lord wrongeth no-one.
Abdur Rahman bin Auf said, ''When we came to Medina as emigrants, Allah's Apostle established a bond of brotherhood between me and Sad bin Ar-Rabi'. Sad bin Ar-Rabi' said (to me), I am the richest among the Ansar, so I will give you half of my wealth and you may look at my two wives and whichever of the two you may choose I will divorce her, and when she has completed the prescribed period (before marriage) you may marry her.' Abdur-Rahman replied, ''I am not in need of all that. Is there any market-place where trade is practiced?' He replied, ''The market of Qainuqa.'' Abdur-Rahman went to that market the following day and brought some dried butter-milk (yogurt) and butter, and then he continued going there regularly. Few days later, AbdurRahman came having traces of yellow (scent) on his body. Allah's Apostle asked him whether he had got married. He replied in the affirmative. The Prophet said, Whom have you married?' He replied, A woman from the Ansar.' Then the Prophet asked, How much did you pay her?' He replied, (I gave her) a gold piece equal in weigh to a date stone (or a date stone of gold)! The Prophet said, Give a Walima (wedding banquet) even if with one sheep .' ''

And they are set before thy Lord in ranks and it is said unto them: Now verily have ye come unto Us as We created you at the first. But ye thought that We had set no tryst for you.
You people say that Abu Huraira tells many narrations from Allah's Apostle and you also wonder why the emigrants and Ansar do not narrate from Allah's Apostle as Abu Huraira does. My emigrant brothers were busy in the market while I used to stick to Allah's Apostle content with what fills my stomach; so I used to be present when they were absent and I used to remember when they used to forget, and my Ansari brothers used to be busy with their properties and I was one of the poor men of Suffa. I used to remember the narrations when they used to forget. No doubt, Allah's Apostle once said, ''Whoever spreads his garment till I have finished my present speech and then gathers it to himself, will remember whatever I will say.'' So, I spread my colored garment which I was wearing till Allah's Apostle had finished his saying, and then I gathered it to my chest. So, I did not forget any of that narrations.

Allah's Apostle used to practice Itikaf every year in the month of Ramadan. And after offering the morning prayer, he used to enter the place of his Itikaf. Aisha asked his permission to let her practice Itikaf and he allowed her, and so she pitched a tent in the mosque. When Hafsa heard of that, she also pitched a tent (for herself), and when Zainab heard of that, she too pitched another tent. When, in the morning, Allah's Apostle had finished the morning prayer, he saw four tents and asked, ''What is this?'' He was informed about it. He then said, ''What made them do this? Is it righteousness? Remove the tents, for I do not want to see them.'' So, the tents were removed. The Prophet did not perform Itikaf that year in the month of Ramadan, but did it in the last ten days of Shawwal.

When I returned to my place the sky was overcast with clouds and it rained. By Him Who sent Muhammad with the Truth, the sky was covered with clouds from the end of that day, and the mosque which was roofed with leaf-stalks of date palm trees (leaked with rain) and I saw the trace of mud and water over the nose of the Prophet and its tip.

She is Safiya. (Sufyan a sub-narrator perhaps said that the Prophet had said, ''This is Safiya''). And Satan circulates in the body of Adam's offspring as his blood circulates in it.''

The Prophet went out and in the meantime two Ansari men met him and they looked at the Prophet and passed by. The Prophet said to them, ''Come here. She is (my wife) Safiya bint Huyai.'' They replied, ''Subhan Allah, (How dare we think of evil) O Allah's Apostle! (we never expect anything bad from you).'' The Prophet replied, ''Satan circulates in the human being as blood circulates in the body, and I was afraid lest Satan might insert an evil thought in your minds.''

I asked Abu Said Al-Khudri, ''Did you hear Allah's Apostle talking about the Night of Qadr?'' He replied in the affirmative and said, ''Once we were in Itikaf with Allah's Apostle in the middle ten days of (Ramadan) and we came out of it in the morning of the twentieth, and Allah's Apostle- delivered a sermon on the 20th (of Ramadan) and said, I was informed (of the date) of the Night of Qadr (in my dream) but had forgotten it. So, look for it in the odd nights of the last ten nights of the month of Ramadan. I saw myself prostrating in mud and water on that night (as a sign of the Night of Qadr). So, whoever had been in Itikaf with Allah's Apostle should return for it.' The people returned to the mosque (for Itikaf). There was no trace of clouds in the sky.

Then the prayer was established (they stood for the prayer) and Allah's Apostle prostrated in mud and water and I saw mud over the forehead and the nose of the Prophet.

When they reached the gate of the mosque, opposite the door of Um-Salama, two Ansari men were passing by and they greeted Allah's Apostle . He told them: Do not run away! And said, ''She is (my wife) Safiya bint Huyai.'' Both of them said, ''Subhan Allah, (How dare we think of any evil) O Allah's Apostle!'' And they felt it. The Prophet said (to them), ''Satan reaches everywhere in the human body as blood reaches in it, (everywhere in one's body). I was afraid lest Satan might insert an evil thought in your minds.''

And he went into his garden, while he thus wronged himself. He said: I think not that all this will ever perish.
The Prophet intended to practice Itikaf and when he reached the place where he intended to perform Itikaf, he saw some tents, the tents of Aisha, Hafsa and Zainab. So, he said, ''Do you consider that they intended to do righteousness by doing this?'' And then he went away and did not perform Itikaf (in Ramadan) but performed it in the month of Shawwal for ten days.
