Sunan Abi Dawood 4791

‘A’ISHA SAID:

A MAN ASKED PERMISSION TO SEE THE PROPHET ﷺ, AND HE SAID: HE IS A BAD SON OF THE TRIBE, OR: HE IS A BAD MEMBER OF THE TRIBE. HE THEN SAID : GIVE HIM PERMISSION. THEN WHEN HE ENTERED, HE SPOKE TO HIM LENIENTLY. ‘A’ISHAH ASKED : APOSTLE OF ALLAH! YOU SPOKE TO HIM LENIENTLY WHILE YOU SAID ABOUT HIM WHAT YOU SAID! HE REPLIED: THE ONE WHO WILL HAVE THE WORST POSITION IN ALLAH’S ESTIMATION ON THE DAY OF RESURRECTION WILL BE THE ONE WHOM PEOPLE LEFT ALONE FOR FEAR OF HIS RIBALDRY.

حَدَّثَنَا مُسَدَّدٌ، حَدَّثَنَا سُفْيَانُ، عَنِ ابْنِ الْمُنْكَدِرِ، عَنْ عُرْوَةَ، عَنْ عَائِشَةَ، قَالَتِ اسْتَأْذَنَ رَجُلٌ عَلَى النَّبِيِّ صلى الله عليه وسلم فَقَالَ " بِئْسَ ابْنُ الْعَشِيرَةِ " . أَوْ " بِئْسَ رَجُلُ الْعَشِيرَةِ " . ثُمَّ قَالَ " ائْذَنُوا لَهُ " . فَلَمَّا دَخَلَ أَلاَنَ لَهُ الْقَوْلَ فَقَالَتْ عَائِشَةُ يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ أَلَنْتَ لَهُ الْقَوْلَ وَقَدْ قُلْتَ لَهُ مَا قُلْتَ . قَالَ " إِنَّ شَرَّ النَّاسِ عِنْدَ اللَّهِ مَنْزِلَةً يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ مَنْ وَدَعَهُ - أَوْ تَرَكَهُ - النَّاسُ لاِتِّقَاءِ فُحْشِهِ " .

Narrated Aisha, Ummul Mu'minin:

A man asked permission to see the Prophet ﷺ, and the Prophet ﷺ said: He is a bad member of the tribe. When he entered, the Messenger of Allah ﷺ treated in a frank and friendly way and spoke to him. When he departed , I said: Messenger of Allah! When he asked permission, you said: He is a bad member of the tribe, but when he entered, you treated him in a frank and friendly way. The Messenger of Allah replied: Aisha! Allah does not like the one who is unseemly and lewd in his language.

حَدَّثَنَا مُوسَى بْنُ إِسْمَاعِيلَ، حَدَّثَنَا حَمَّادٌ، عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ عَمْرٍو، عَنْ أَبِي سَلَمَةَ، عَنْ عَائِشَةَ، رضى الله عنها أَنَّ رَجُلاً، اسْتَأْذَنَ عَلَى النَّبِيِّ صلى الله عليه وسلم فَقَالَ النَّبِيُّ صلى الله عليه وسلم " بِئْسَ أَخُو الْعَشِيرَةِ " . فَلَمَّا دَخَلَ انْبَسَطَ إِلَيْهِ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم وَكَلَّمَهُ فَلَمَّا خَرَجَ قُلْتُ يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ لَمَّا اسْتَأْذَنَ قُلْتَ " بِئْسَ أَخُو الْعَشِيرَةِ " . فَلَمَّا دَخَلَ انْبَسَطْتَ إِلَيْهِ . فَقَالَ " يَا عَائِشَةُ إِنَّ اللَّهَ لاَ يُحِبُّ الْفَاحِشَ الْمُتَفَحِّشَ " .

THE TRADITION MENTIONED ABOVE HAS BEEN TRANSMITTED BY ‘A’ISHAH THROUGH A DIFFERENT CHAIN OF NARRATORS. THIS VERSION HAS:

THE PROPHET ﷺ SAID: ‘A’ISHAH! THERE ARE SOME BAD PEOPLE WHO ARE RESPECTED FOR FEAR OF THEIR TONGUES.

حَدَّثَنَا عَبَّاسٌ الْعَنْبَرِيُّ، حَدَّثَنَا أَسْوَدُ بْنُ عَامِرٍ، حَدَّثَنَا شَرِيكٌ، عَنِ الأَعْمَشِ، عَنْ مُجَاهِدٍ، عَنْ عَائِشَةَ، فِي هَذِهِ الْقِصَّةِ قَالَتْ فَقَالَ تَعْنِي النَّبِيَّ صلى الله عليه وسلم

Narrated Anas ibn Malik:

I never said that when any man brought his mouth to the ear of the Messenger of Allah ﷺ and he withdrew his head until the man himself withdrew his head, and I never saw that when any man took him by his hand and he withdrew his hand, until the man himself withdrew his hand.

حَدَّثَنَا أَحْمَدُ بْنُ مَنِيعٍ، حَدَّثَنَا أَبُو قَطَنٍ، أَخْبَرَنَا مُبَارَكٌ، عَنْ ثَابِتٍ، عَنْ أَنَسٍ، قَالَ مَا رَأَيْتُ رَجُلاً الْتَقَمَ أُذُنَ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم فَيُنَحِّي رَأْسَهُ حَتَّى يَكُونَ الرَّجُلُ هُوَ الَّذِي يُنَحِّي رَأْسَهُ وَمَا رَأَيْتُ رَجُلاً أَخَذَ بِيَدِهِ فَتَرَكَ يَدَهُ حَتَّى يَكُونَ الرَّجُلُ هُوَ الَّذِي يَدَعُ يَدَهُ .

‘ABD ALLAH B. ‘UMAR SAID:

THE PROPHET ﷺ PASSED BY A MAN OF THE ANSAR WHEN HE WAS GIVING HIS BROTHER A WARNING AGAINST MODESTY. THE APOSTLE OF ALLAH ﷺ SAID : LEAVE HIM ALONE, FOR MODESTY IS A PART OF FAITH.

ABU QATADAH SAID:

WE WERE SITTING WITH ‘IMRAN B. HUSSAIN AND BUSHAIR B. KA’B WAS ALSO THERE. ‘IMRAN B. HUSSAIN REPORTED THE APOSTLE OF ALLAH ﷺ AS SAYING: MODESTY IS A GOOD ALTOGETHER, OR HE SAID: MODESTY IS ALTOGETHER GOOD. BUSHAIR B. KA’B SAID : WE FIND IN SOME BOOKS THAT THERE IS A MODESTY WHICH PRODUCES PEACE AND DIGNIFIED BEARING, AND THERE IS A MODESTY WHICH PRODUCES WEAKNESS. ‘IMRAN B. HUSSAIN REPEATED THE SAME WORDS. SO ‘IMRAN BECAME ANGRY SO MUCH SO THAT HIS EYES BECAME RED, AND HE SAID : DON’T YOU SEE THAT I AM TRANSMITTING A TRADITION FROM THE APOSTLE OF ALLAH ﷺ AND YOU ARE MENTIONING SOMETHING FROM YOUR BOOKS? HE (QATADAH) SAID : WE SAID : ABU NUJAID, IT IS SUFFICIENT.

Narrated Aisha, Ummul Mu'minin:

Al-Miqdam ibn Shurayh, quoting his father, said: I asked Aisha about living in the desert. She said: The Messenger of Allah ﷺ used to go to the desert to these rivulets. Once he intended to go to the desert and he sent to me a she-camel from the camel of sadaqah which had not been used for riding so far. He said to me: Aisha! show gentleness, for if gentleness is found in anything, it beautifies it and when it is taken out from anything it damages it.

Ibn al-Sabbah said in his version: Muharramah means a mount which has not been used for riding.

حَدَّثَنَا عُثْمَانُ، وَأَبُو بَكْرٍ ابْنَا أَبِي شَيْبَةَ وَمُحَمَّدُ بْنُ الصَّبَّاحِ الْبَزَّازُ قَالُوا حَدَّثَنَا شَرِيكٌ، عَنِ الْمِقْدَامِ بْنِ شُرَيْحٍ، عَنْ أَبِيهِ، قَالَ سَأَلْتُ عَائِشَةَ عَنِ الْبَدَاوَةِ، فَقَالَتْ كَانَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم يَبْدُو إِلَى هَذِهِ التِّلاَعِ وَإِنَّهُ أَرَادَ الْبَدَاوَةَ مَرَّةً فَأَرْسَلَ إِلَىَّ نَاقَةً مُحَرَّمَةً مِنْ إِبِلِ الصَّدَقَةِ فَقَالَ لِي
" يَا عَائِشَةُ ارْفُقِي فَإِنَّ الرِّفْقَ لَمْ يَكُنْ فِي شَىْءٍ قَطُّ إِلاَّ زَانَهُ وَلاَ نُزِعَ مِنْ شَىْءٍ قَطُّ إِلاَّ شَانَهُ " . قَالَ ابْنُ الصَّبَّاحِ فِي حَدِيثِهِ مُحَرَّمَةٌ يَعْنِي لَمْ تُرْكَبْ .

Narrated Jabir ibn Abdullah:

The Prophet ﷺ said: If someone is given something, he should give a return for it provided he can afford; if he cannot afford, he should praise him. He who praises him for it, thanks him, and he who conceals it is ungrateful to him.

Abu Dawud said: It has been transmitted by Yahya b. Ayyub, from 'Umarah b. Ghaziyyah, from Sharahbil on the authority of Jabir

Abu Dawud said: In the chain of this tradition 'Umarah b. Ghaziyyah said: A man from my tribe said. The man referred by him is in Sharahbil. It is likely that they disliked him and, therefore, they did not blame him.

حَدَّثَنَا مُسَدَّدٌ، حَدَّثَنَا بِشْرٌ، حَدَّثَنَا عُمَارَةُ بْنُ غَزِيَّةَ، قَالَ حَدَّثَنِي رَجُلٌ، مِنْ قَوْمِي عَنْ جَابِرِ بْنِ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ، قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم

ABU SA’ID AL-KHUDRI REPORTED THE APOSTLE OF ALLAHﷺ AS SAYINGS:

AVOID SITTING IN THE ROADS. THE PEOPLE SAID: APOSTLE OF ALLAH! WE MUST HAVE MEETING PLACES IN WHICH TO CONVERSE. THE APOSTLE OF ALLAH( MAY PEACE BE UPON HIM) SAID: IF YOU INSIST ON MEETING,GIVE THE ROAD ITS DUE. THEY ASKED: WHAT IS THE DUE OF ROADS, APOSTLE OF ALLAH? HE REPLIED: LOWERING THE EYES, REMOVING ANYTHING OFFENSIVE, RETURNING SALUTATION, COMMANDING WHAT IS REPUTABLE AND FORBIDDING WHAT IS DISREPUTABLE.

Narrated Anas ibn Malik:

A woman came to the Messenger of Allah ﷺ and said: Messenger of Allah: I have some need with you. He said to her: Mother of so and so, sit in the corner of any street you wish and I shall sit with you. So she sat and the Messenger of Allah ﷺ also sat with her till she fulfilled her need.

The narrator Ibn 'Isa did not mention "till she fulfilled her need." And Kathir said: from Humaid on the authority of Anas.

حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ عِيسَى بْنِ الطَّبَّاعِ، وَكَثِيرُ بْنُ عُبَيْدٍ، قَالاَ حَدَّثَنَا مَرْوَانُ، - قَالَ ابْنُ عِيسَى قَالَ - حَدَّثَنَا حُمَيْدٌ، عَنْ أَنَسٍ، قَالَ جَاءَتِ امْرَأَةٌ إِلَى رَسُولِ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم فَقَالَتْ يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ إِنَّ لِي إِلَيْكَ حَاجَةً . فَقَالَ لَهَا
