Volume 1

Bk. 1: Revelation

1.1:
Narrated `Umar bin Al−Khattab: I heard Allah's Apostle saying,
"Deeds (their correctness and rewards) depend upon intentions,
and every person gets but what he has intended. So whoever
emigrated for worldly benefits, or for a woman to marry, his
emigration is for what he emigrated for."

1.2:
Narrated `Aisha:
(the mother of the faithful believers) Al−Harith
bin Hisham asked Allah's Apostle "O Allah's Apostle! How is
the Divine Inspiration revealed to you?" Allah's Apostle
replied, "Sometimes it is (revealed) like the ringing of a
bell, this form of Inspiration is the hardest of all and then
this state passes off after I have grasped what is inspired.
Sometimes the Angel comes in the form of a man and talks to me
and I grasp what he says." `Aisha added: Verily I saw the
Prophet being inspired Divinely on a very cold day and noticed
the sweat dropping from his forehead (as the Inspiration was
over).

1.3:
Narrated `Aisha:
(the mother of the faithful believers) The commencement of the
Divine Inspiration to Allah's Apostle was in the form of good
dreams which came true like bright day light, and then the
love of seclusion was bestowed upon him. He used to go in
seclusion in the cave of Hira where he used to worship (Allah
alone) continuously for many days before his desire to see his
family. He used to take with him the journey food for the stay

and then come back to (his wife) Khadija to take his food
likewise again till suddenly the Truth descended upon him
while he was in the cave of Hira. The angel came to him and
asked him to read. The Prophet replied, "I do not know how to
read. The Prophet added, "The angel caught me (forcefully) and
pressed me so hard that I could not bear it any more. He then
released me and again asked me to read and I replied, 'I do
not know how to read.' Thereupon he caught me again and
pressed me a second time till I could not bear it any more. He
then released me and again asked me to read but again I
replied, 'I do not know how to read (or what shall I read)?'
Thereupon he caught me for the third time and pressed me, and
then released me and said, 'Read in the name of your Lord, who
has created (all that exists) has created man from a clot.
Read! And your Lord is the Most Generous." (96.1, 96.2, 96.3)
Then Allah's Apostle returned with the Inspiration and with
his heart beating severely. Then he went to Khadija bint
Khuwailid and said, "Cover me! Cover me!" They covered him
till his fear was over and after that he told her everything
that had happened and said, "I fear that something may happen
to me." Khadija replied, "Never! By Allah, Allah will never
disgrace you. You keep good relations with your Kith and kin,
help the poor and the destitute, serve your guests generously
and assist the deserving calamity−afflicted ones." Khadija
then accompanied him to her cousin Waraqa bin Naufal bin Asad
[??] bin `Abdul `Uzza, who, during the pre Islamic Period
became a Christian and used to write the writing with Hebrew
letters. He would write from the Gospel in Hebrew as much as
Allah wished him to write. He was an old man and had lost his
eyesight. Khadija said to Waraqa, "Listen to the story of your
nephew, O my cousin!" Waraqa asked, "O my nephew! What have
you seen?" Allah's Apostle described whatever he had seen.
Waraqa said, "This is the same one who keeps the secrets
(angel Gabriel) whom Allah had sent to Moses. I wish I were
young and could live up to the time when your people would
turn you out." Allah's Apostle asked, "Will they drive me
out?" Waraqa replied in the affirmative and said, "Anyone
(man) who came with something similar to what you have brought

was treated with hostility; and if I should remain Alive till
the day when you will be turned out then I would support you
strongly." But after a few days Waraqa died and the Divine
Inspiration was also paused for a while. Narrated Jabir bin
`Abdullah Al−Ansari while talking about the period of pause in
revelation reporting the speech of the Prophet "While I was
walking, all of a sudden I heard a voice from the sky. I
looked up and saw the same angel who had visited me at the
cave of Hira' sitting on a chair between the sky and the
earth. I got afraid of him and came back home and said, 'Wrap
me (in blankets).' And then Allah revealed the following Holy
Verses (of Qur'an): 'O you (i.e. Muhammad)! wrapped up in
garments!' Arise and warn (the people against Allah's
Punishment),... up to 'and desert the idols.' (74.1−5) After
this the revelation started coming strongly, frequently and
regularly."

1.4:
Narrated Sa`id bin Jubair: Ibn `Abbas in the explanation of
the Statement of Allah 'Move not your tongue concerning (the
Qur'an) to make haste therewith (75.16)' said "Allah's Apostle
used to bear the revelation with great trouble and used to
move his lips (quickly) with the Inspiration." Ibn `Abbas
moved his lips saying, "I am moving my lips in front of you as
Allah's Apostle used to move his." Sa`id moved his lips
saying: "I am moving my lips, as I saw Ibn `Abbas moving his."
Ibn `Abbas added, "So Allah revealed 'Move not your tongue
concerning (the Qur'an) to make haste therewith. It is for us
to collect it and to give you (O Muhammad) the ability to
recite it (the Qur'an) (75.16−17)' which means that Allah will
make him (the Prophet ) remember the portion of the Qur'an
which was revealed at that time by heart and recite it. The
Statement of Allah: And 'When we have recited it to you (O
Muhammad through Gabriel) then you follow its (Qur'an)
recital' (75.18) means 'listen to it and be silent.' Then it
is for Us (Allah) to make It clear to you' (75.19) means 'Then
it is (for Allah) to make you recite it (and its meaning will
be clear by itself through your tongue). Afterwards, Allah's
Apostle used to listen to Gabriel whenever he came and after

his departure he used to recite it as Gabriel had recited it."

1.5:
Narrated Ibn `Abbas: Allah's Apostle was the most generous of
all the people, and he used to reach the peak in generosity in
the month of Ramadan when Gabriel met him. Gabriel used to
meet him every night of Ramadan to teach him the Qur'an.
Allah's Apostle was the most generous person, even more
generous than the strong uncontrollable wind (in readiness and
haste to do charitable deeds).

1.6:
Narrated `Abdullah bin `Abbas: Abu Sufyan bin Harb informed me
that Heraclius had sent a messenger to him while he had been
accompanying a caravan from Quraish. They were merchants doing
business in Sham (Syria, Palestine, Lebanon and Jordan), at
the time when Allah's Apostle had truce with Abu Sufyan and
Quraish infidels. So Abu Sufyan and his companions went to
Heraclius at Ilya (Jerusalem). Heraclius called them in the
court and he had all the senior Roman dignitaries around him.
He called for his translator who, translating Heraclius'
question said to them, "Who amongst you is closely related to
that man who claims to be a Prophet?" Abu Sufyan replied, "I
am the nearest relative to him (amongst the group). Heraclius
said, "Bring him (Abu Sufyan) close to me and make his
companions stand behind him." Abu Sufyan added, Heraclius told
his translator to tell my companions that he wanted to put
some questions to me regarding that man (The Prophet) and that
if I told a lie they (my companions) should contradict me."
Abu Sufyan added, "By Allah! Had I not been afraid of my
companions labeling me a liar, I would not have spoken the
truth about the Prophet. The first question he asked me about
him was: 'What is his family status amongst you?' I replied,
'He belongs to a good (noble) family amongst us.' Heraclius
further asked, 'Has anybody amongst you ever claimed the same

(i.e. to be a Prophet) before him?' I replied, 'No.'
He said, 'Was anybody amongst his ancestors a king?' I
replied, 'No.'
Heraclius asked, 'Do the nobles or the poor follow him?' I
replied, 'It is the poor who follow him.' He said, 'Are his

followers increasing decreasing (day by day)?' I replied,
'They are increasing.' He then asked, 'Does anybody amongst
those who embrace his religion become displeased and renounce
the religion afterwards?' I replied, 'No.'
Heraclius said, 'Have you ever accused him of telling lies
before his claim (to be a Prophet)?' I replied, 'No. '
Heraclius said, 'Does he break his promises?' I replied, 'No.
We are at truce with him but we do not know what he will do in
it.' I could not find opportunity to say anything against him
except that. Heraclius asked, 'Have you ever had a war with
him?' I replied, 'Yes.'
Then he said, 'What was the outcome of the battles?' I
replied, 'Sometimes he was victorious and sometimes we.'
Heraclius said, 'What does he order you to do?' I said, 'He
tells us to worship Allah and Allah alone and not to worship
anything along with Him, and to renounce all that our
ancestors had said. He orders us to pray, to speak the truth,
to be chaste and to keep good relations with our Kith and
kin.' Heraclius asked the translator to convey to me the
following, I asked you about his family and your reply was
that he belonged to a very noble family. In fact all the
Apostles come from noble families amongst their respective
peoples. I questioned you whether anybody else amongst you
claimed such a thing, your reply was in the negative. If the
answer had been in the affirmative, I would have thought that
this man was following the previous man's statement. Then I
asked you whether anyone of his ancestors was a king. Your
reply was in the negative, and if it had been in the
affirmative, I would have thought that this man wanted to take
back his ancestral kingdom. I further asked whether he was
ever accused of telling lies before he said what he said, and
your reply was in the negative. So I wondered how a person who
does not tell a lie about others could ever tell a lie about
Allah. I, then asked you whether the rich people followed him
or the poor. You replied that it was the poor who followed
him. And in fact all the Apostle have been followed by this
very class of people. Then I asked you whether his followers
were increasing or decreasing. You replied that they were

increasing, and in fact this is the way of true faith, till it
is complete in all respects. I further asked you whether there
was anybody, who, after embracing his religion, became
displeased and discarded his religion. Your reply was in the
negative, and in fact this is (the sign of) true faith, when
its delight enters the hearts and mixes with them completely.
I asked you whether he had ever betrayed. You replied in the
negative and likewise the Apostles never betray. Then I asked
you what he ordered you to do. You replied that he ordered you
to worship Allah and Allah alone and not to worship any thing
along with Him and forbade you to worship idols and ordered
you to pray, to speak the truth and to be chaste. If what you
have said is true, he will very soon occupy this place
underneath my feet and I knew it (from the scriptures) that he
was going to appear but I did not know that he would be from
you, and if I could reach him definitely, I would go
immediately to meet him and if I were with him, I would
certainly wash his feet.' Heraclius then asked for the letter
addressed by Allah's Apostle which was delivered by Dihya to
the Governor of Busra, who forwarded it to Heraclius to read.
The contents of the letter were as follows: "In the name of
Allah the Beneficent, the Merciful (This letter is) from
Muhammad the slave of Allah and His Apostle to Heraclius the
ruler of Byzantine. Peace be upon him, who follows the right
path. Furthermore I invite you to Islam, and if you become a
Muslim you will be safe, and Allah will double your reward,
and if you reject this invitation of Islam you will be
committing a sin by misguiding your Arisiyin (peasants). (And
I recite to you Allah's Statement:) 'O people of the
scripture! Come to a word common to you and us that we worship
none but Allah and that we associate nothing in worship with
Him, and that none of us shall take others as Lords beside
Allah. Then, if they turn away, say: Bear witness that we are
Muslims (those who have surrendered to Allah).' (3:64). Abu
Sufyan then added, "When Heraclius had finished his speech and
had read the letter, there was a great hue and cry in the
Royal Court. So we were turned out of the court. I told my
companions that the question of Ibn−Abi−Kabsha (the Prophet

Muhammad) has become so prominent that even the King of Bani
Al−Asfar (Byzantine) is afraid of him. Then I started to
become sure that he (the Prophet) would be the conqueror in
the near future till I embraced Islam (i.e. Allah guided me to
it). The sub narrator adds, "Ibn An−Natur was the Governor of
Ilya' (Jerusalem) and Heraclius was the head of the Christians
of Sham. Ibn An−Natur narrates that once while Heraclius was
visiting Ilya' (Jerusalem), he got up in the morning with a
sad mood. Some of his priests asked him why he was in that
mood? Heraclius was a foreteller and an astrologer. He
replied, 'At night when I looked at the stars, I saw that the
leader of those who practice circumcision had appeared (become
the conqueror). Who are they who practice circumcision?' The
people replied, 'Except the Jews nobody practices
circumcision, so you should not be afraid of them (Jews).
'Just Issue orders to kill every Jew present in the country.'
While they were discussing it, a messenger sent by the king of
Ghassan to convey the news of Allah's Apostle to Heraclius was
brought in. Having heard the news, he (Heraclius) ordered the
people to go and see whether the messenger of Ghassan was
circumcised. The people, after seeing him, told Heraclius that
he was circumcised. Heraclius then asked him about the Arabs.
The messenger replied, 'Arabs also practice circumcision.'
(After hearing that) Heraclius remarked that sovereignty of
the Arabs had appeared. Heraclius then wrote a letter to his
friend in Rome who was as good as Heraclius in knowledge.
Heraclius then left for Homs. (a town in Syrian and stayed
there till he received the reply of his letter from his friend
who agreed with him in his opinion about the emergence of the
Prophet and the fact that he was a Prophet. On that Heraclius
invited all the heads of the Byzantines to assemble in his
palace at Homs. When they assembled, he ordered that all the
doors of his palace be closed. Then he came out and said, 'O
Byzantines! If success is your desire and if you seek right
guidance and want your empire to remain then give a pledge of
allegiance to this Prophet (i.e. embrace Islam).' (On hearing
the views of Heraclius) the people ran towards the gates of
the palace like onagers [??] but found the doors closed.

Heraclius realized their hatred towards Islam and when he lost
the hope of their embracing Islam, he ordered that they should
be brought back in audience. (When they returned) he said,
'What already said was just to test the strength of your
conviction and I have seen it.' The people prostrated before
him and became pleased with him, and this was the end of
Heraclius' story (in connection with his faith).

Bk. 2: Belief

1.7:
Narrated Ibn `Umar: Allah's Apostle said: Islam is based on
(the following) five (principles): −1. To testify that there
is no deity (owing the right to be worshipped) but Allah and
that Muhammad is Allah's Messenger. −2. To offer the
(compulsory congregational) prayers dutifully and perfectly.
−3. To pay Zakat (i.e. obligatory charity) . −4. To perform
Hajj. (i.e. Pilgrimage to Mecca) −5. To observe fast during
the month of Ramadan.

1.8:
Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet said, "Faith (Belief)
consists of more than sixty branches (i.e. parts). And Haya'
(This word "Haya'" covers a large number of concepts which are
to be taken together; amongst them are self respect, modesty,
bashfulness, and scruple, etc. Its predominant meaning is:
pious shyness from committing religious indiscretions) is a
part of faith."

1.9:
Narrated `Abdullah bin `Amr: The Prophet said, "A Muslim is
the one who avoids harming Muslims with his tongue and hands.
And a Muhajir (emigrant) is the one who gives up (abandons)
all what Allah has forbidden."

1.10:
Narrated Abu Musa: Some people asked Allah's Apostle, "Whose
Islam is the best? i.e. (Who is a very good Muslim)?" He

and hands."

1.11:
Narrated `Abdullah bin `Amr: A man asked the Prophet , "What
sort of deeds or (what qualities of) Islam are good?" The
Prophet replied, 'To feed (the poor) and greet those whom you
know and those whom you do not Know (See Hadith No. 27).

1.12:
Narrated Anas:
The Prophet said, "None of you will have faith till he wishes
for his (Muslim) brother what he likes for himself."

1.13:
Narrated Abu Huraira: "Allah's Apostle said, "By Him in Whose
Hands my life is, none of you will have faith till he loves me
more than his father and his children."

1.14:
Narrated Anas:
The Prophet said "None of you will have faith till he loves me
more than his father, his children and all mankind."

1.15:
Narrated Anas:
The Prophet said, "Whoever possesses the following three
qualities will have the sweetness (delight) of faith: − 1. The
one to whom Allah and His Apostle becomes dearer than anything
else. −2. Who loves a person and he loves him only for Allah's
sake. −3. Who hates to revert to Atheism (disbelief) as he
hates to be thrown into the fire."

1.16:
Narrated Anas:
The Prophet said, "Love for the Ansar is a sign of faith and
hatred for the Ansar is a sign of hypocrisy."

1.17:
Narrated 'Ubada bin As−Samit: who took part in the battle of
Badr and was a Naqib (a person heading a group of six
persons), on the night of Al−`Aqaba pledge: Allah's Apostle
said while a group of his companions were around him, "Swear
allegiance to me for: − 1. Not to join anything in worship
along with Allah. −2. Not to steal. −3. Not to commit illegal
sexual intercourse. −4. Not to kill your children. −5. Not to
