Imam Abu Dawud was born in Sistan, Iran in 817 CE and died in Basra, Iraq in 889 CE.



During his life, Imam Abu Dawud widely travelled to Iraq, Egypt, Syria, Hijaz, Tihamah, Khurasan, Nishapur and Marv to collect hadith. He was primarily interested in jurisprudence, and so his 4,800 Abu Dawud hadith collection focused on legal rulings.

1 Narrated Anas ibn Malik:

I served the Prophet (Peach be upon him) at Medina for ten years. I was a boy. Every work that I did was not according to the desire of my master, but he never said to me: Fie, nor did he say to me: Why did you do this? or Why did you not do this?

2 Narrated AbuHurayrah:

The Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) used to sit with us in meetings and talk to us. When he stood up we also used to stand up and see him entering the house of one of his wives. One day he talked to us and we stood up as he stood up and we saw that an Arabi (a nomadic Arab) caught hold of him and gave his cloak a violent tug making his neck red.

AbuHurayrah said: The cloak was coarse. He turned to him and the Arabi said to him: Load these two camels of mine, for you do not give me anything from your property or from your father's property.

The Prophet (Peach be upon him) said to him: No, I ask Allah's forgiveness; no, I ask Allah's forgiveness; no, I ask Allah's forgiveness. I shall not give you the camel-load until you make amends for the way in which you tugged at me.

Each time the Arabi said to him: I swear by Allah, I shall not do so.

He then mentioned the rest of the tradition. He (the Prophet), then called a man and said to him: Load these two camels of his: one camel with barley and the other with dates. He then turned to us and said: Go on your way with the blessing of Allah.

There are some expressions which a man utters three times when he gets up from an assembly he will be forgiven for what happened in the assembly; and no one utters them in an assembly held for a noble cause or for remembrance of Allah but that is stamped with them just as a document is stamped with a signet-ring.

So we proceeded, and when I reached al-Abwa', he said to me: I have some work with my people at Waddan, so stay here till I come back. I said: Do not lose your way. When he turned his back, I recalled the words of the Prophet (Peach be upon him). So I rode my camel and galloped without stopping. When I reached al-Asafir, he was pursuing me with a group of men. So I galloped and forged ahead of him. When he saw me that I had outstripped him, they returned and he came to me.

Ibn Awn said: I asked about the meaning of intisar (revenge) in the Qur'anic verse: "But indeed if any do help and defend themselves (intasara) after a wrong (done) to them, against them there is no cause of blame."

I signalled to him until I made him understand about her. So he stopped. Zaynab came on and began to abuse Aisha. She tried to prevent her but she did not stop.

So he (the Prophet) said to Aisha: Abuse her.

So she abused her and dominated her. Zaynab then went to Ali and said: Aisha abused you and did (such and such). Then Fatimah came (to the Prophet) and he said to her: She is the favourite of your father, by the Lord of the Ka'bah!

He would say: Refrain from it. One day he found him in sin and said to him: Refrain from it.

He said: Leave me alone with my Lord. Have you been sent as a watchman over me? He said: I swear by Allah, Allah will not forgive you, nor will he admit you to Paradise. Then their souls were taken back (by Allah), and they met together with the Lord of the worlds.

He (Allah) said to this man who had striven hard in worship; Had you knowledge about Me or had you power over that which I had in My hand? He said to the man who sinned: Go and enter Paradise by My mercy. He said about the other: Take him to Hell.

AbuHurayrah said: By Him in Whose hand my soul is, he spoke a word by which this world and the next world of his were destroyed.

Sahl ibn AbuUmamah said that he and his father (AbuUmamah) visited Anas ibn Malik at Medina during the time (rule) of Umar ibn AbdulAziz when he (Anas ibn Malik) was the governor of Medina. He was praying a very short prayer as if it were the prayer of a traveller or near it.

When he gave a greeting, my father said: May Allah have mercy on you! Tell me about this prayer: Is it obligatory or supererogatory?

He said: It is obligatory; it is the prayer performed by the Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him). I did not make a mistake except in one thing that I forgot.

He said: The Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) used to say: Do not impose austerities on yourselves so that austerities will be imposed on you, for people have imposed austerities on themselves and Allah imposed austerities on them. Their survivors are to be found in cells and monasteries. (Then he quoted:) "Monasticism, they invented it; we did not prescribe it for them."

Next day he went out in the morning and said: will you not go out for a ride, so that you may see something and take a lesson from it?

He said: Yes. Then all of them rode away and reached a land whose inhabitants had perished, passed away and died. The roofs of the town had fallen in.

He asked: Do you know this land? I said: Who acquainted me with it and its inhabitants? (Anas said:) This is the land of the people whom oppression and envy destroyed. Envy extinguishes the light of good deeds, and oppression confirms or falsifies it. The eye commits fornication, and the palm of the hand, the foot, body, tongue and private part of the body confirm it or deny it.
Abu Dawud | 3:4886
132 Abu al-Darda' reported the Messenger of Allah (May peace be upon him) as saying:

when a man cures anything, the curse goes up to heaven and the gates of heaven are locked against it. Then it comes down to the earth and its gates are locked against it. Then it goes right and left, and if it finds no place of entrance it returns to the thing which was cursed, and if it finds no place of entrance it returns to the thing which was cursed, and if it deserves what was said (it enters it), otherwise it returns to the one who uttered it.

Abu Dawud said : Marwan b. Muhammad said: He is Rabah b. al-Walid who heard from him (nimran). He (Marwan b. Muhammad) said: Yahya b. Hussain was confused in it.

Abu Dawud | 3:4893
139 Narrated AbuHurayrah:

The Prophet (Peach be upon him) said: It is not allowable for a believer to keep from a believer for more than three days. If three days pass, he should meet him and give him a salutation, and if he replies to it they will both have shared in the reward; but if he does not reply he will bear his sin (according to Ahmad's version) and the one who gives the salutation will have come forth from the sin of keeping apart.
Abu Dawud | 3:4894
140 Narrated Aisha, Ummul Mu'minin:

The gates of Paradise are opened on Mondays and Thursdays, and forgiveness is granted to every man who does not associate anything with Allah, except for a man between whom and his brother there is rancor. Command will be given that they should be given respite till they conciliate.

Abu Dawud said: The Prophet (Peach be upon him) kept apart from some of his wives for forty days, and Ibn 'Umar kept apart from his son till he died.

Abu Dawud | 3:4901
147
Humaid b. 'Abd al-Rahman quoted his mother as saying:

The Prophet (Peach be upon him) said: He who forged in order to put things right between two persons did not lie. The version by Ahmad ibn Muhammad and Musaddad has: The liar is not the one who puts things right between people, saying what is good and increasing good.
Abu Dawud | 3:4902
148 Umm Kulthum, daughter of 'Uqbah, said:

I did not hear the Messenger of Allah (May peace be upon him) giving licence for anything people say falsely except in three matters. The Apostle of allah (May peace be upon him) would say : I do not count liar a man who puts things right between people, saying a word by which he intends only putting things right, and a man who says something in war, and a man who says something to his wife says something to his husband.

Abu Dawud | 3:4980
226 Narrated An-Nu'man ibn Bashir:

When AbuBakr asked the permission of the Prophet (Peach be upon him) to come in, he heard Aisha speaking in a loud voice.

So when he entered, he caught hold of her in order to slap her, and said: Do I see you raising your voice to the Messenger of Allah? The Prophet (Peach be upon him) began to prevent him and AbuBakr went out angry. The Prophet (Peach be upon him) said when AbuBakr went out: You see I rescued you from the man.

AbuBakr waited for some days, then asked permission of the Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) to enter, and found that they had made peace with each other. He said to them: Bring me into your peace as you brought me into your war.

The Prophet (Peach be upon him) said: We have done so: we have done so.
Abu Dawud | 3:4981

Abu Dawud | 3:4982
228 'Uthman b. Abu 'Atikah said:

The only reason why he asked whether the whole of him should come in was because of the smallness of the tent
Abu Dawud | 3:4983
229 Narrated Anas ibn Malik:

The Prophet (Peach be upon him) addressed me as: O you with the two ears.
Abu Dawud | 3:4984
230 Narrated Abdullah ibn as-Sa'ib ibn Yazid:

The Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) said: None of you should take the property of his brother in amusement (i.e. jest), nor in earnest. The narrator Sulayman said: Out of amusement and out of earnest. If anyone takes the staff of his brother, he should return it. The transmitter Ibn Bashshar did not say "Ibn Yazid, and he said: The Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) said.
Abu Dawud | 3:4985
231 Narrated AbdurRahman ibn AbuLayla:

The Companions of the Prophet (Peach be upon him) told us that they were travelling with the Prophet (Peach be upon him). A man of them slept, and one of them went to the rope which he had with him. He took it, by which he was frightened. The Prophet (Peach be upon him) said: It is not lawful for a Muslim that he frightens a Muslim.
Abu Dawud | 3:4986
232 Narrated Abdullah ibn Amr ibn al-'As:

The Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) said: Allah , the Exalted, hates the eloquent one among men who moves his tongue round (among his teeth), as cattle do.
Abu Dawud | 3:4987
233 Narrated AbuHurayrah:

The Prophet (Peach be upon him) said: On the Day of resurrection Allah will not accept repentance or ransom from him who learns excellence of speech to captivate thereby the hearts of men, or of people.

234 'Abd Allah b. 'Umar said:

When two men who came from the east made a speech and the people were charmed with their eloquence, the Messenger of Allah (May peace be upon him) said: In some eloquent speech there is magic.
Abu Dawud | 3:4989
235 One day when a man got up and spoke at length Amr ibn al-'As said If he had been moderate in what he said:

It would have been better for him. I heard the Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) say: I think (or, I have been commanded) that I should be brief in what I say, for brevity is better.
Abu Dawud | 3:4990
236
Abu Hurairah reported the Messenger of Allah (May peace be upon him) as saying:

it is better for a man's belly to be full of pus than to be full of poetry.


Abu 'Ali said : I have been told that Abu 'Ubaid said : It means that his heart is full of poetry so much so that it makes him neglectful of the Quran and remembrance of Allah. If the Quran and the knowledge (of religion) are dominant, the belly will not be full of poetry in our opinion. Some eloquent speech is magic. It means that a man expresses his eloquence by praising another man, and he speaks the truth about him so much so that he attracts the hearts to his speech. He then condemns him and speaks the truth about him so much so that he attracts the hearts to another of his speech, as if he spelled the audience by it.
Abu Dawud | 3:4991
237 Ubayy b. Ka'b reported the Prophet (May peace be upon him) as saying:

In poetry there is wisdom.
Abu Dawud | 3:4992
238 Narrated Abdullah ibn Abbas:

239 Narrated Buraydah ibn al-Hasib:

I heard the Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) say: In eloquence there is magic, in knowledge ignorance, in poetry wisdom, and in speech heaviness.

Sa'sa'ah ibn Suhan said: The Prophet of Allah (Peach be upon him) spoke the truth. His statement "In eloquence there is magic" means: (For example), there is a right due from a man who is more eloquent in reasoning than the man who is demanding his right. He (the defendant) charms the people by his speech and takes away his right. His statement "In knowledge there is ignorance" means: A scholar brings to his knowledge what he does not know, and thus he becomes ignorant of that. His statement "In poetry there is wisdom" means: These are the sermons and examples by which people receive admonition. His statement "In speech there is heaviness" means: That you present your speech and your talk to a man who is not capable of understanding it, and who does not want it.
Abu Dawud | 3:4994
240 Sa'id said:

Umar passed by Hassan when he was reciting verses in the mosque. He looked at him. Thereupon he said: I used to recite verses when there was present in it the one who was better than you (i.e. the Prophet).

241 The tradition mention above has also been transmitted by Sa'id b. al-Musayyab through a different chain of narrators to the same effect. This version adds:

242 Narrated Aisha, Ummul Mu'minin:

The Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) used to setup a pulpit in the mosque for Hassan who would stand on it and satirise those who spoke against the Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him).

Abu Dawud | 3:4997
243 Ibn 'Abbas said:

Abu Dawud | 3:4998
244 Narrated AbuHurayrah:

When the Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) finished the dawn prayer, he would ask: Did any of you have a dream last night? And he said: All that is left of Prophecy after me is a good vision.
Abu Dawud | 3:4999
245 'Ubadah b. al-Samit reported the Prophet (May peace be upon him) as saying:

A believer's vision is the forty-sixth part of Prophecy.
Abu Dawud | 3:5000
246
Abu Hurairah reported the Prophet (May peace be upon him) as saying:

When the time draws near, a believer's vision can hardly be false. The truer one of them is in his speech, the truer he is in his vision. Visions are of three types: Good visions are glad tidings from Allah, a terrifying vision caused by the devil, and the ideas which come from within a man. So when one sees anything he dislikes, he should get up and pray, and should not tell it to the people. He said : I like a fetter and dislike a shackle on the neck; a fetter indicates being firmly established in religion.

Abu Dawud said : "when the time draws near" means that when the day and night are equal.
Abu Dawud | 3:5001
247 Narrated AbuRazin:

The Prophet (Peach be upon him) said: The vision flutters over a man as long as it is not interpreted , but when it is interpreted, it settles. And I think he said: Tell it only to one who loves (i.e. friend) or one who has judgment.
Abu Dawud | 3:5002
248 Abu Qatadah said:

I heard the Messenger of Allah (May peace be upon him) say: A good vision comes from Allah and a dream (hulm) from the devil, so when one of you sees what he dislikes, he must spit on his left (three times), and seek refuge in Allah from its evil. It will then not harm him.
Abu Dawud | 3:5003
249 Jabir reported the Messenger of Allah (May peace be upon him) as saying:

When one of you sees a vision which he dislikes, he must spit on his left (three times), seek refuge in Allah from the devil three times, and turn from the side on which he was lying.
Abu Dawud | 3:5004
250 Abu Hurairah said:

I heard the Messenger of Allah (May peace be upon him) say : He who sees me in a dream will see me when awake or as if he will see me when awake, for the devil does not take my likeness.
Abu Dawud | 3:5005
251 Ibn 'Abbas reported the Prophet (May peace be upon him) as saying:

If anyone makes a representation of anything, Allah will punish him on the day of Resurrection for it until he breathes into it, but he will bw unable to do so. If anyone pretends to have had a dream which he did not see, he will gives the task of joining barley-seed. If anyone listens to other people's talk when they try to avoid him, lead will be poured into his ears on the Day of resurrection.
Abu Dawud | 3:5006
252 Narrated Anas ibn Malik:

The Prophet (Peach be upon him) said: One night it seemed to me in a dream that we were in the house of Uqbah ibn Rafi' and were brought some of the fresh dates of Ibn tab. I interpreted it as meaning that to us is granted eminence (rif'ah) in this world, a blessed hereafter ('aqibah), and that our religion has been good (tabah).
Abu Dawud | 3:5007
253 Abu Sa'id al-Khudri reported the Messenger of Allah (May peace be upon him) as saying:

When one of you yawns, he should hold his hand over his mouth, for the devil enters.

254 The tradition mentioned above has also been transmitted in a similar way by Suhail through a different chain of narrators. This version has; "during prayer, so he should hold as far as possible".
Abu Dawud | 3:5009
255 Abu Hurairah reported the Messenger of Allah (May peace be upon him) as saying:

Allah likes sneezing but dislikes yawning. So when one of you yawns, he should restrain it as much as possible, and should not say Ha, Ha, for that is from the devil who laughs at him.
Abu Dawud | 3:5010
256 Narrated AbuHurayrah:

When the Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) sneezed, he placed his hand or a garment on his mouth, and lessened the noise. The transmitter Yahya is doubtful about the exact words khafada or ghadda (lessened).
Abu Dawud | 3:5011
257 Abu Hurairah reported the Messenger of Allah (May peace be upon him) as saying:

There are five qualities which a Muslim should display to his brother : return of salutation, response to the one who sneezes, acceptance of the invitation, paying sick visit to a patient, and accompanying the funeral.
Abu Dawud | 3:5012
258 Narrated Salim ibn Ubayd:

Hilal ibn Yasar said: We were with Salim ibn Ubayd when a man from among the people sneezed and said: Peace be upon you.

He said: I wished you would not mention my mother with good or evil. He said: I have just said to you what the Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) said. We were in the presence of the Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) when a man from among the people sneezed, saying: Peace be upon you!

The Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) said: And upon you and your mother. He then said: When one of you sneezes, he should praise Allah. He further mentioned some attributes (of Allah), saying: The one who is with him should say to him: Allah have mercy on you, and he should reply to them: Allah forgive us and you.

Abu Dawud | 3:5014
260 Abu Hurairah reported the prophet (May peace be upon him) as saying:

When one of you sneezes, he should say : praise be to Allah in every circumstance, and his brother or his companion should say : Allah in every on you! And he should then reply : May Allah guide you well-being.
Abu Dawud | 3:5015
261 Narrated AbuHurayrah:

Respond three times to your brother when he sneezes, and if he sneezes more often, he has a cold in his head.

266 Anas said:

Two men sneezed in the presence of the prophet (May peace be upon him). He said : Allah have mercy on you! To one and not to the other. He was asked: Messenger of Allah! Two persons sneezed. Ahmad's version has: You invoked a blessing on one of them and left the other. He replied : This man praised Allah, and this man did not praise Allah.
Abu Dawud | 3:5021
267 Narrated Tikhfat al-Ghifari:

There is no refuge and no place of safety from thee except by having recource to thee. I believe in Thy Book which Thou hast sent down and in Thy prophet whom thou hast sent down.

He (the prophet) visited us (Ali) when we had gone to bed, and when we were about to get up, he said: stay where you are. He then came and sat down between us (her and me), and I felt the coldness of his feet on my chest. He then said; "Let me guide to something better than what you have asked. When you go bed, say: Glory be to Allah" thirty-three times."Praise be to Allah" thirty-three times, and " Allah is most Great" thirty-four times. That will be better for you than a servant.
Abu Dawud | 3:5044
290 'Ali said to Ibn A'bad:

should I not tell you about me and about Fatimah, daughter of the Messenger of Allah (May peace be upon him). She was dearest to him of his family. When she was with me, she pulled mill-stone which affected her hand; she carried water with the water-bag which affected the upper portion of her chest: She swept the house so much so that her clothes became dusty; and she cooked food by which her clothes became black, and it harmed her. We heard that some slaves had been brought to the prophet (May peace be upon him). I said: if you go to your father and ask him for a servant, that will be sufficient for you. She came to him and found some people talking to him. She felt shy and returned. Next morning he visited us when we were in our quilt. He sat beside her head, and she took her head into the quilt out of shame from her father. He asked: What need had you with me, O family of Muhammad? She kept silence twice. I then said : I swear by Allah, I shall tell you. She pulls the mile-stone which has affected her hand; she carrys water with the water-bag which has affected the upper portion of her chest; she sweeps the house by which her clothes have become dusty, and she cooks food by which her clothes have become black. We were told that some slaves or servants had come to you. So I said to her; ask him for a servant.

Abu Dawud | 3:5046
292 Narrated Abdullah ibn Amr:

The Prophet (Peach be upon him) said: There are two qualities or characteristics which will not be returned by any Muslim without his entering Paradise. While they are easy, those who act upon them are few. One should say: "Glory be to Allah" ten times after every prayer, "Praise be to Allah" ten times and "Allah is Most Great" ten times. That is a hundred and fifty on the tongue, but one thousand and five hundred on the scale. When he goes to bed, he should say: "Allah is Most Great" thirty-four times, "Praise be to Allah" thirty-three times, and Glory be to Allah thirty-three times, for that is a hundred on the tongue and a thousand on the scale. (He said:) I saw the Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) counting them on his hand.

The people asked: Messenger of Allah! How is it that while they are easy, those who act upon them are few?

He replied: The Devil comes to one of you when he goes to bed and he makes him sleep, before he utters them, and he comes to him while he is engaged in prayer and calls a need to his mind before he utters them.
Abu Dawud | 3:5047
293 Umm al-Hakam or Duba'ah, daughter of al-Zubair, said:

The Messenger of Allah (May peace be upon him) got some prisoners of war (slaves). I my sister and Fatimah, daughter of the prophet (May peace be upon him), went to the prophet (May peace be upon him). We complained to him about our condition, and asked him to command for giving us some prisoners (slaves). The Messenger of Allah (May peace be upon him) said; The orphans of Badr came before you (and took the slaves). The transmitter then mentioned the story of glorifying Allah after every prayer. He did not mention sleeping.
Abu Dawud | 3:5048
294 Narrated AbuHurayrah:

I testify that there is no god but Thee; I seek refuge in Thee from the evil within myself, from the evil of the devil, and his (incitement to) attributing partners (to Allah)." He said: Say this in the morning.

we have come to the evening, and in the evening the dominion belongs to Allah: "Praise be to Allah; there is no god but Allah alone who has no partner".

O Allah! I ask thee for the good of what this night contains, and the good of what comes after it; and I seek refuge in Thee from the evil of what this night contains, and from the evil of what comes after it. My Lord! I seek refuge in Thee from indolence, the evil of old age or of disbelief. My Lord! I seek refuge in Thee from a punishment in Hell and a punishment in the grave. In the morning he said that also: we have come to the morning, and in the morning the dominion belongs to Allah.

Ali and Ibn al-Musaffa said: The Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) sent us on an expedition. When we reached the place of attack, I galloped my horse and outstripped my companions, and the people of that locality received me with a great noise.

I said to them: Say "There is no god but Allah," and you will be protected. They said this.

My companions blamed me, saying: You deprived us of the booty. When we came to the Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him), they told him what I had done.

So he called me, appreciating what I had done, and said: Allah has recorded for you so and so (a reward) for every man of them.

AbdurRahman said: I forgot the reward. The Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) then said: I shall write a will for you after me. He did this and stamped it, and gave it to me, saying....He then mentioned the rest of the tradition to the same effect.

310 Narrated AbuMalik:

The people asked: Tell us a word which we repeat in the morning, evening and when we rise.

Abu Dawud | 3:5065
311 AbuDawud said:

And through the same chain of transmitters the Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) said: When one rises in the morning, one should say: "We have reached the morning, and in the morning the dominion belongs to Allah, the Lord of the universe. O Allah! I ask Thee for the good this day contains, for conquest, victory, light, blessing and guidance during it; and I seek refuge in Thee from the evil it contains and the evil contained in what comes after it." In the evening he should say the equivalent.

Aban was afflicted by some paralysis and when a man who heard the tradition began to look at him, he said to him: Why are you looking at me? I swear by Allah, I did not tell a lie about Uthman, nor did Uthman tell a lie about the Prophet (Peach be upon him), but that day when I was afflicted by it, I became angry and forgot to say them.
Abu Dawud | 3:5069

He said: I heard the Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) using these words as a supplication and I like to follow his practice.

The transmitter, Abbas, said in this version: And you say: "O Allah! I seek refuge in Thee from infidelity and poverty. O Allah! I seek refuge in Thee from punishment in the grave. There is no god but Thee". You repeat them three times in the morning and three times in the evening, and use them as a supplication. I like to follow his practice.

He said: The Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) said: The supplications to be used by one who is distressed are: "O Allah! Thy mercy is what I hope for. Do not abandon me to myself for an instant, but put all my affairs in good order for me. There is no god but Thou." Some transmitters added more than others.

Abu Dawud | 3:5078
325 'A'ishah, wife of the prophet (May peace be upon him), said:

The word of Allah, Most High, reads: "O ye who believe! Let those whom your right hands possess, and the (children) among you, who have not come of age, ask your permission (before) they enter your presence on three occasions: before morning prayer, while you are undressing for the noonday heat, and after late-night prayer. These are your three times of undress; outside those times it is not wrong for you or for them to move about."

Al-Qa'nabi recited the verse up to "full of knowledge and wisdom".

Ibn Abbas said: Allah is Most Clement and Most Merciful to the believers. He loves concealment. The people had neither curtains nor curtained canopies in their houses. Sometimes a servant, a child or a female orphan of a man entered while the man was having sexual intercourse with his wife. So Allah commanded them to ask permission in those times of undress. Then Allah brought them curtains and all good things. But I did not see anyone following it after that.

The Messenger of Allah (May peace be upon him) gave him permission and ordered him to take his weapon with him. He came to his house and found his wife standing at the door of the house. When he pointed to her with the lance, she said; do not make haste till you see what has brought me out. He entered the house and found an ugly snake there. He pierced in the lance while it was quivering. He said : I do not know which of them died first, the man or the snake. His people then came to the Messenger of Allah (May peace be upon him) and said: supplicate Allah to restore our companion to life for us. He said : Ask forgiveness for your Companion.
