THE HADITH OF MUHAMMED
By Sahih Bukhari
2, Book 14, Number 64:
2, Book 14, Number 65:
I asked Az-Zuhri, "Did
the Prophet ever offer the Fear Prayer?" Az-Zuhri said, "I was told
by Salim that 'Abdullah bin Umar I had said, 'I took part in a holy
battle with Allah's Apostle I in Najd. We faced the enemy and arranged
ourselves in rows. Then Allah's Apostle (p.b.u.h) stood up to lead the
prayer and one party stood to pray with him while the other faced the
enemy. Allah's Apostle (p.b.u.h) and the former party bowed and performed
two prostrations. Then that party left and took the place of those who
had not prayed. Allah's Apostle prayed one Raka (with the latter) and
performed two prostrations and finished his prayer with Taslim. Then
everyone of them bowed once and performed two prostrations individually.'
2, Book 14, Number 66:
Ibn Umar said something
similar to Mujahid's saying: Whenever (Muslims and non-Muslims) stand
face to face in battle, the Muslims can pray while standing. Ibn Umar
added, "The Prophet said, 'If the number of the enemy is greater than
the Muslims, they can pray while standing or riding (individually).'
2, Book 14, Number 67:
Narrated Ibn Abbas:
Once the Prophet (p.b.u.h)
led the fear prayer and the people stood behind him. He said Takbir
(Allahu-Akbar) and the people said the same. He bowed and some of them
bowed. Then he prostrated and they also prostrated. Then he stood for
the second Raka and those who had prayed the first Raka left and guarded
their brothers. The second party joined him and performed bowing and
prostration with him. All the people were in prayer but they were guarding
one another during the prayer.
2, Book 14, Number 68:
Narrated Jabir bin 'Abdullah:
On the day of the Khandaq
Umar came, cursing the disbelievers of Quraish and said, "O Allah's
Apostle! I have not offered the 'Asr prayer and the sun has set." The
Prophet replied, "By Allah! I too, have not offered the prayer yet.
"The Prophet then went to Buthan, performed ablution and performed the
'Asr prayer after the sun had set and then offered the Maghrib prayer
Narrated Anas bin Malik:
Allah's Apostle (p.b.u.h)
offered the Fajr prayer when it was still dark, then he rode and said,
'Allah Akbar! Khaibar is ruined. When we approach near to a nation,
the most unfortunate is the morning of those who have been warned."
The people came out into the streets saying, "Muhammad and his army."
Allah's Apostle vanquished them by force and their warriors were killed;
the children and women were taken as captives. Safiya was taken by Dihya
Al-Kalbi and later she belonged to Allah's Apostle go who married her
and her Mahr was her manumission.
