The Three Men

Narated By Abu Waqid Al-Laithi :

While Allah’s Apostle was sitting in the mosque with some people, three men came.Two of them came in front of Allah’s Apostle and the third one went away. The two persons kept on standing before Allah’s Apostle for a while and then one of them found a place in the circle and sat there while the other sat behind the gathering, and the third one went away. When Allah’s Apostle finished his preaching,

he said, “Shall I tell you about these three persons? One of them be-took himself to Allah, so Allah took him into His grace and mercy and accommodated him, the second felt shy from Allah, so Allah sheltered Him in His mercy (and did not punish him), while the third turned his face from Allah and went away, so Allah turned His face from him likewise.”

Prophet Muhammad Sallalahu Alaihi Wassalam conversation to Dimam bin Tha’laba

Narated By Anas bin Malik : While we were sitting with the Prophet in the mosque,

a man came riding on a camel. He made his camel kneel down in the mosque, tied its foreleg and then said:

“Who amongst you is Muhammad?”

At that time the Prophet was sitting amongst us (his companions) leaning on his arm.

We replied,”This white man reclining on his arm.”

The an then addressed him, “O Son of ‘Abdul Muttalib.”

The Prophet said, “I am here to answer your questions.”

The man said to the Prophet, “I want to ask you something and will be hard in questioning. So do not get angry.”

The Prophet said, “Ask whatever you want.”

The man said, “I ask you by your Lord, and the Lord of those who were before you, has Allah sent you as an Apostle to all the mankind?”

The Prophet replied, “By Allah, yes.”

The man further said, “I ask you by Allah. Has Allah ordered you to offer five prayers in a day and night (24 hours).?

He replied, “By Allah, Yes.”

The man further said, “I ask you by Allah! Has Allah ordered you to observe fasts during this month of the year (i.e. Ramadan)?”

He replied, “By Allah, Yes.”

The man further said, “I ask you by Allah. Has Allah ordered you to take Zakat (obligatory charity) from our rich people and distribute it amongst our poor people?”

The Prophet replied, “By Allah, yes.”

Thereupon that man said, “I have believed in all that with which you have been sent, and I have been sent by my people as a messenger, and I am Dimam bin Tha’laba from the brothers of Bani Sa’d bin Bakr.”

When would the Hour (Doomsday) take place?

Narated By Abu Huraira :

While the Prophet was saying something in a gathering,

a Bedouin came and asked him,“When would the Hour (Doomsday) take place?”

Allah’s Apostle continued his talk, so some people said that Allah’s Apostle had heard the question, but did not like what that Bedouin had asked. Some of them said that Alllah’s Apostle had not heard it.

When the Prophet finished his speech, he said, “Where is the questioner, who enquired about the Hour (Doomsday)?”

The Bedouin said, “I am here, O Allah’s Apostle .”

Then the Prophet said, “When honesty is lost, then wait for the Hour (Doomsday).”

The Bedouin said, “How will that be lost?”

The Prophet said, “When the power or authority comes in the hands of unfit persons, then wait for the Hour (Doomsday.)”

1. Offer prayers perfectly.
2. Pay the Zakat. (obligatory charity)
3. And be sincere and true to every Muslim.

Narated By Ziyad bin’Ilaqa : I heard Jarir bin ‘Abdullah (Praising Allah). On the day when Al-Mughira bin Shu’ba died,

he (Jarir) got up (on the pulpit) and thanked and praised Allah and said,

“Be afraid of Allah alone Who has none along with Him to be worshipped.(You should) be calm and quiet till the (new) chief comes to you and he will come to you soon. Ask Allah’s forgiveness for your (late) chief because he himself loved to forgive others.”

Jarir added, “Amma badu (now then), I went to the Prophet and said, ‘I give my pledge of allegiance to you for Islam.”

The Prophet conditioned (my pledge) for me to be sincere and true to every Muslim so I gave my pledge to him for this.

By the Lord of this mosque! I am sincere and true to you (Muslims). Then Jarir asked for Allah’s forgiveness and came down (from the pulpit).
