'Abd Allaah (bin Mas'ud) said "If you say that , I heard the Apostle of Allaah(Peach be upon him) say " Those of you who can support a wife, should marry, for it keeps you from looking at strange women and preserve from unlawful intercourse, but those who cannot should devote themselves to fasting, for it is a means of suppressing sexual desire.

He (Salim) was the freed slave of a woman from the Ansar (the Helpers) as the Apostle of Allaah(Peach be upon him) adopted Zaid as his son. In pre Islamic days when anyone adopted a man as his son, the people called him by his name and he was given a share from his inheritance. Allaah, the Exalted, revealed about this matter "Call them by (the name of) their fathers, that is juster in the sight of Allaah. And if ye know not their fathers, then (they are) your brethren in the faith and your clients. They were then called by their names of their fathers. A man, whose father was not known, remained under the protection of someone and considered brother in faith. Sahlah daughter of Suhail bin Amr Al Quraishi then came and said Apostle of Allaah(Peach be upon him), we used to consider Salim(our) son. He dwelled with me and Abu Hudhaifah in the same house, and he saw me in the short clothes, but Allaah the Exalted, has revealed about them what you know, then what is your opinion about him? The Prophet (Peach be upon him) said give him your breast feed. She gave him five breast feeds. He then became like her foster son. Hence, A'ishah(may Allaah be pleased with her) used to ask the daughters of her sisters and the daughters of her brethren to give him breast feed five times, whom A'ishah wanted to see and who wanted to visit her. Though he might be of age; he then visited her. But Umm Salamah and all other wives of the Prophet (Peach be upon him) refused to allow anyone to visit them on the basis of such breast feeding unless one was given breast feed during infancy. They told A'ishah by Allaah we do not know whether that was a special concession granted by the Prophet (Peach be upon him) to Salim exclusive of the people.

Ibn Shihab said "'Urwah bin Al Zubair asked A'ishah , wife of the Prophet(Peach be upon him) about the Qur'anic verse "And if ye fear that ye will not deal fairly by the orphans, marry of the women, who seem good to you." She said "O my nephew, this means the female orphan who is under the protection of her guardian and she holds a share in his property and her property and beauty attracts him; so her guardian intends to marry her without doing justice to her in respect of her dower and he gives her the same amount of dower as others give her. They (i.e., the guardians) were prohibited to marry them except that they do justice to them and pay them their maximum customary dower and they were asked to marry women other than them (i.e., the orphans) who seem good to them. 'Urwah reported that A'ishah said "The people then consulted the Apostle of Allaah(Peach be upon him) about women after revelation of this verse. Thereupon Allaah the Exalted sent down the verse "They consult thee concerning women. Say Allaah giveth you decree concerning them and the scripture which hath been recited unto you(giveth decree) concerning female orphans unto whom you give not that which is ordained for them though you desire to marry them. " She said "The mention made by Allaah about the Scripture recited to them refers to the former verse in which Allaah has said "And if ye fear that ye will not deal fairly by the orphans, marry of the women, who seem good to you." A'ishah said "The pronouncement of Allaah , the Exalted in the latter verse "though you desire to marry them" means the disinterest of one of you in marrying a female orphan who was under his protection, but she said little property and beauty. So they were prohibited to marry them for their interest in the property and beauty of the female orphans due to their disinterest in themselves except that they do justice )to them). The narrator Yunus said "Rabi'ah said explain the Qur'anic verse "And if ye fear that ye will not deal fairly by the orphans" means "Leave them if you fear (that you will not do justice to them), for I have made four women lawful for you."

(He said) By Allaah if you give it to me no one can take it from me so long as I am alive. Ali bin Abi Talib (may Allaah be pleased with him) asked for the hand of Abu Jahl's daughter in marriage after the marriage with Fathima.

Fathima is from me and I am not afraid that she will be tried in respect of her religion. He then mentioned his other son-in-law who belonged to Banu 'Abd Shams. He admired him immensely for his relationship with him and extolled him well. He said "He talked to me and talked truly and he made promise with me and fulfilled it.

If it is erroneous, that is from me and from Satan. Allah and His Apostle are free from its responsibility. Some people from Ashja' got up; among them were al-Jarrah and AbuSinan.

They said: Ibn Mas'ud, we bear witness that the Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) gave a decision for us regarding Birwa', daughter of Washiq, to the same effect as the decision you have given. Her husband was Hilal ibn Murrah al-Ashja'i. Thereupon Abdullah ibn Mas'ud was very pleased when his decision agreed with the decision of the Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him).

Narrated Uqbah ibn Amir:

The Prophet (Peach be upon him) said to a man: Would you like me to marry you to so-and-so?

He said: Yes. He also said to the woman: Would you like me to marry you to so-and-so?

She said: Yes. He then married one to the other. The man had sexual intercourse with her, but he did not fix any dower for her, nor did he give anything to her. He was one of those who participated in the expedition to al-Hudaybiyyah. One part of the expedition to al-Hudaybiyyah had a share in Khaybar.

When he was nearing his death, he said: The Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) married me to so-and-so, and I did not fix a dower for her, nor did I give anything to her. I call upon you as witness that I have given my share in Khaybar as her dower. So she took the share and sold it for one lakh (of dirhams).


Abu Dawud said: The version of 'Umar b. al-Khattab added in the beginning of this tradition, and his version is more perfect. He reported the Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) as saying: The best marriage is the one that is most easy. The Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) said to the man. The narrator then transmitted the rest of the tradition to the same effect.

Abu Dawud said: I am afraid this tradition has been added later on, for the matter is otherwise.

Narrated Abdullah ibn Mas'ud:

The Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) taught us the address in case of some need:

Praise be to Allah from Whom we ask help and pardon, and in Whom we take refuge from the evils within ourselves. He whom Allah guides has no one who can lead him astray, and he whom He leads astray has no one to guide him. I testify that there is no god but Allah, and I testify that Muhammad is His servant and Apostle.

"You who believe,...fear Allah by Whom you ask your mutual rights, and reverence the wombs. Allah has been watching you." ..."you who believe, fear Allah as He should be feared, and die only as Muslims" ...."you who believe, fear Allah as He should be feared, and die only as Muslims"....."you who believe, fear Allah and say what is true. He will make your deeds sound, and forgive your sins. He who obeys Allah and His Apostle has achieved a mighty success."

He who obeys Allah and His Prophet is on the right path, and he who disobeys them does not harm anyone except himself, and he does not harm Allah to the least.

It was very rare that he did not visit us any day (i.e. he visited all of us every day). He would come near each of his wives without having intercourse with her until he reached the one who had her day and passed his night with her. When Saudah daughter of Zam'ah became old and feared that the Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) would divorce her, she said: Messenger of Allah, I give to 'Aishah the day you visit me. The Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) accepted it from her.

Narrated Qays ibn Sa'd:

I went to al-Hirah and saw them (the people) prostrating themselves before a satrap of theirs, so I said: The Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) has most right to have prostration made before him. When I came to the Prophet (Peach be upon him), I said: I went to al-Hirah and saw them prostrating themselves before a satrap of theirs, but you have most right, Messenger of Allah, to have (people) prostrating themselves before you. He said: Tell me , if you were to pass my grave, would you prostrate yourself before it? I said: No. He then said: Do not do so. If I were to command anyone to make prostration before another I would command women to prostrate themselves before their husbands, because of the special right over them given to husbands by Allah.

Ibn 'Abbas said "I did not see anything more resembling to minor sins than what Abu Hurairah reported from the Prophet (Peach be upon him) who said "Allaah has decreed for the children of Adam a share in adultery, he will get it by all means, the adultery of eyes is looking; the adultery of tongue is speaking; the soul desires and has a passion; the private parts confirms or falsifies it."
108 of 129
Abu Hurairah reported the Prophet (Peach be upon him) as saying " Every child of Adam has his share in adultery. He then narrated the rest of the tradition.

Abu Sa'id Al Khudri said "The Apostle of Allaah(Peach be upon him) sent a military expedition to Awtas on the occasion of the battle of Hunain. They met their enemy and fought with them. They defeated them and took them captives. Some of the Companions of Apostle of Allaah(Peach be upon him) were reluctant to have intercourse with the female captives in the presence of their husbands who were unbelievers. So, Allaah the exalted sent down the Qur'anic verse "And all married women (are forbidden) unto you save those (captives) whom your right hand posses." This is to say they are lawful for them when they complete their waiting period.
111 of 129
Abu Al Darda said "The Apostle of Allaah(Peach be upon him) was in a battle. He saw a woman who was nearing the time when she was to deliver a child. "He said "Perhaps the master has intercourse with her.". They(the people) said "Yes". He said "I am inclined to invoke a curse on him which will enter his grave with him. How can he make it (the child) an heir when it is not lawful for him? How can he take it into his service when that is not lawful for him?"
112 of 129
Abu Sa'id Al Khudri traced to Prophet (Peach be upon him) the following statement regarding the captives taken at Atwas. There must be no intercourse with pregnant woman till she gives birth to her child or with the one who is not pregnant till she has had one menstrual period.
113 of 129
Narrated Ruwayfi' ibn Thabit al-Ansari:

Should I tell you what I heard the Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) say on the day of Hunayn: It is not lawful for a man who believes in Allah and the last day to water what another has sown with his water (meaning intercourse with women who are pregnant); it is not lawful for a man who believes in Allah and the Last Day to have intercourse with a captive woman till she is free from a menstrual course; and it is not lawful for a man who believes in Allah and the Last Day to sell spoil till it is divided.
114 of 129
The aforesaid tradition has also been transmitted by Ibn Ishaq through a different chain of narrators. This version has the traditional word "a menstrual course" in the phrase "till she is free from a menstrual course". This is a misunderstanding on the part of the narrator Abu Mu'awiyah. This is correct in the tradition of Abu Sa'id Al Khudri. This version has the additional words "he who believes in Allaah and the Last Day should not ride on a mount belonging to the spoil of Muslims and when he makes it emaciated returns it; he who believes in Allaah and the Last Day should not put on cloth belonging to the spoils of Muslims and when makes it old (shabby) returns it.

Abu Dawud said "The word "menstrual course" is not guarded. This is a misunderstanding on the part of Abu Mu'awiyah"

'Amr b. Shu'aib on his father's authority said that his grandfather (Abdullah ibn Amr ibn al-'As) reported the Prophet (Peach be upon him) said:

If one of you marries a woman or buys a slave, he should say: "O Allah, I ask You for the good in her, and in the disposition You have given her; I take refuge in You from the evil in her, and in the disposition You have given her." When he buys a camel, he should take hold of the top of its hump and say the same kind of thing.


Abu Dawud said: Abu Sa'id added the following words in his version: He should then tale hold of her forelock and pray for blessing in the case of a woman or a slave.
116 of 129
Ibn 'Abbas reported the Prophet (Peach be upon him) as saying "If anyone who means to have intercourse with his wife says "In the name of Allaah, O Allaah, keep us away from the devil and keep the devil away from what You hast provided us."

Muhammad bin Al Munkadir said I heard Jabir say The Jews used to say "When a man has intercourse with his wife through the vagina, but being on her back the child will have a squint, so the verse came down. Your wives are a tilth to you, so come to your tilth however you will."
119 of 129
Narrated Abdullah Ibn Abbas:

Ibn Umar misunderstood (the Qur'anic verse, "So come to your tilth however you will")--may Allah forgive him. The fact is that this clan of the Ansar, who were idolaters, lived in the company of the Jews who were the people of the Book. They (the Ansar) accepted their superiority over themselves in respect of knowledge, and they followed most of their actions. The people of the Book (i.e. the Jews) used to have intercourse with their women on one side alone (i.e. lying on their backs). This was the most concealing position for (the vagina of) the women. This clan of the Ansar adopted this practice from them. But this tribe of the Quraysh used to uncover their women completely, and seek pleasure with them from in front and behind and laying them on their backs.

When the muhajirun (the immigrants) came to Medina, a man married a woman of the Ansar. He began to do the same kind of action with her, but she disliked it, and said to him: We were approached on one side (i.e. lying on the back); do it so, otherwise keep away from me. This matter of theirs spread widely, and it reached the Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him).

So Allah, the Exalted, sent down the Qur'anic verse: "Your wives are a tilth to you, so come to your tilth however you will," i.e. from in front, from behind or lying on the back. But this verse meant the place of the delivery of the child, i.e. the vagina.
120 of 129
Anas bin Malik said Among the Jews when a woman menstruated, they did not eat with her and drink with her and did not associate with her in their houses, so the Apostle of Allaah(Peach be upon him) was questioned about it. Hence, Allah the Exalted revealed "And they ask you about menstruation,. Say "It is harmful, so keep aloof from women during menstruation till the end of the verse. The Apostle of Allaah(Peach be upon him) said "Associate with them in the houses and do everything except sexual intercourse. The Jews thereupon said "This man does not leave anything we do without opposing us in it. Usaid bin Hudair and Abbad bin Bishr came to the Apostle of Allaah(Peach be upon him) and said, Apostle of Allaah(Peach be upon him) the Jews are saying such and such. Shall we not have intercourse with them during their menstruation? The face of the Apostle of Allaah(Peach be upon him) underwent such a change that we thought he was angry with them, so they went out. They were met by a gift of milk which was being brought to the Apostle of Allaah(Peach be upon him) and he sent after them, whereby we felt that he was not angry with them.
121 of 129
Narrated Aisha, Ummul Mu'minin:

I and the Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) used to lie in one cloth at night while I was menstruating. If anything from me smeared him, he washed the same place (that was smeared), and did not wash beyond it. If anything from him smeared his clothe, he washed the same place and did not wash beyond that, and prayed with it (i.e. the clothe).
122 of 129
Maimunah daughter of Al Harith said "When the Apostle of Allaah(Peach be upon him) intended to associate and lie with any of his wives who was menstruating, he ordered her to wrap up the lower garment(loin-cloth) and then he had association with her.
123 of 129
Narrated Abdullah ibn Abbas:

The Prophet (Peach be upon him) said about a man who has sexual intercourse with a menstruating woman: He should give one or half dinar as sadaqah.
124 of 129
Narrated Abdullah ibn Abbas:

If a man has sexual intercourse (with menstruating woman) during her bleeding, he should give one dinar as sadaqah, and if he does so when bleeding has stopped, he should give half a dinar as sadaqah.
125 of 129
Abu Sa'id reported "The people mentioned about withdrawing the penis before the Prophet (Peach be upon him). He said "Why one of you does so? He did not say "One of you should not do so". Every soul that is to be born, Allaah will create it. Abu Dawud said "Qaza'ah is a client of Ziyad"
126 of 129
Narrated AbuSa'id al-Khudri:

A man said: Messenger of Allah, I have a slave-girl and I withdraw the penis from her (while having intercourse), and I dislike that she becomes pregnant. I intend (by intercourse) what the men intend by it.

The Jews say that withdrawing the penis (azl) is burying the living girls on a small scale. He (the Prophet) said: The Jews told a lie. If Allah intends to create it, you cannot turn it away.
127 of 129
Muhairiz said "I entered the mosque and saw Abu Sa'id Al Khudri . I sat with him and asked about withdrawing the penis (while having intercourse). Abu Sa'id said We went out with the Apostle of Allaah(Peach be upon him) on the expedition to Banu Al Mustaliq and took some Arab women captive and we desired the women for we were suffering from the absence of our wives and we wanted ransom, so we intended to withdraw the penis (while having intercourse with the slave women). But we asked ourselves "can we draw the penis when the Apostle of Allaah(Peach be upon him) is among us before asking him about it? So we asked him about it. He said "it does not matter if you do not do it, for very soul that is to be born up to the Day of Resurrection will be born."
128 of 129
Jabir said "A man from the Ansar came to the Apostle of Allaah(Peach be upon him) and said "I have a slave girl and I have intercourse with her. But I dislike her to conceive. He replied "Withdraw your penis from her if you wish for what is decreed for her will come to her." After a time the man came to him and said "The girl has become pregnant". He said "I told you that what was decreed for her would come to her."
129 of 129
Narrated AbuHurayrah:

AbuNadrah reported: An old man of Tufawah said to me: I was a guest of AbuHurayrah at Medina. I did not find any one of the companions of the Prophet (Peach be upon him) more devoted to worship and more hospitable than AbuHurayrah.

One day I was with him when he was sitting on his bed. He had a purse which contained pebbles or kernels. A black slave-girl of his was sitting below. Counting them he was glorifying Allah. When the pebbles or the kernels in the purse were finished, she gathered them and put them again in the purse, and gave it to him. He said: Should I not tell you about me and about the Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him)?

I said: Yes. He said: Once when I was laid up with fever in the mosque, the Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) came and entered the mosque, and said: Who saw the youth of ad-Daws. He said this three times.

A man said: Messenger of Allah, there he is, laid up with fever on one side of the mosque. He moved, walking forward till he reached me. He placed his hand on me. He had a kind talk with me, and I rose. He then began to walk till he reached the place where he used to offer his prayer. He paid his attention to the people. There were two rows of men and one row of women, or two rows of women and one row of men (the narrator is doubtful).

He then said: If Satan makes me forget anything during the prayer, the men should glorify Allah, and the women should clap their hands. The Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) then prayed and he did not forget anything during the prayer.

He said: Be seated in your places, be seated in your places. The narrator, Musa, added the word "here". He then praised Allah and exalted Him, and said: Now to our topic.

The agreed version begins: He then said: Is there any man among you who approaches his wife, closes the door, covers himself with a curtain, and he is concealed with the curtain of Allah?

They replied: Yes. He said: later he sits and says: I did so-and-so; I did so-and-so. The people kept silence. He then turned to the women and said (to them): Is there any woman among you who narrates it? They kept silence. Then a girl fell on one of her knees. The narrator, Mu'ammil, said in his version: a buxom girl. She raised her head before the Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) so that he could see her and listen to her.

She said: Messenger of Allah, they (the men) describe the secrets (of intercourse) and they (the women) also describe the secrets (of intercourse) to the people.

He said: Do you know what the similitude is? He said: The likeness of this act is the likeness of a female Satan who meets the male Satan on the roadside; he fulfils his desire with her while the people are looking at him. Beware! The perfume of men is that whose smell becomes visible and its colour does not appear. Beware! The perfume of women is that whose colour becomes visible and whose smell is not obvious.

AbuDawud said: From here I remembered this tradition from Mu'ammil and Musa: Beware! No man should lie with another man, no woman should lie with another woman except with one's child or father. He also mentioned a third which I have forgotten. This has been mentioned in the version of Musaddad, but I do not remember it as precisely as I like.

The narrator, Musa, said: Hammad narrated this tradition from al-Jarir from AbuNadrah from at-Tufawi.

IMPORTANT: All Scripture text has context and background. Scripture should never be read literally or in isolation. Always seek clarification from religious scholars and teachers. In general, Scripture adheres to four principles: (1) Literal Meaning - What the Scripture says (2) Historical Setting - The story events; how the Scripture was understood in its time (3) Grammar - The surrounding sentence and paragraph; textual context (4) Synthesis - A comparison with similar Scripture to give a better contextual understanding
