The Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessing of Allah be upon him) said,
There are two types of the people of Hell whom I have not seen:
people with whips like the tails of cattle, with which they beat the people,
and women who are clothed yet naked, misguided and leading others astray, with their heads like the humps of camels, leaning to one side.
They will not enter Paradise or even smell its fragrance, although its fragrance may be detected from such and such a distance.

Arabbi came to The Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessing of Allah be upon him) and said:

"Oh, Muhammad ! We are told that Allah will put
all the heavens on one Finger and the earths on one Finger
and the trees on one Finger
and the water and the dust on one Finger
and all the other created beings on

one Finger.
Then He will say: "I am the King."



Thereupon, the Prophet laughed until his molar teeth were visible and this was confirmation of the rabbi's words.
Then he recited
"" No just estimate have they made of Allaah such as is due to Him: On the Day of Resurrection, the whole of the earth will be in His Grasp".

It is narrated on the authority of Anas b. Malik that The Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessing of Allah be upon him said:
I was brought al-buraq Who is an animal white and long, larger than a donkey but smaller than a mule, who would place his hoof a distance equal to the range of version.
I mounted it and came to the Temple (Bait Maqdis in Jerusalem), then tethered it to the ring used by the prophets.
I entered the mosque and prayed two rak'ahs in it, and then came out and Gabriel brought me a vessel of wine and a vessel of milk.
I chose the milk, and Gabriel said: You have chosen the natural thing.
Then he took me to heaven.
Gabriel then asked the (gate of heaven) to be opened and he was asked who he was.
He replied: Gabriel.
He was again asked: Who is with you?
He (Gabriel) said: Muhammad.
It was said: Has he been sent for?
Gabriel replied: He has indeed been sent for.

And (the door of the heaven) was opened for us and lo! we saw Adam.
He welcomed me and prayed for my good.

Then we ascended to the second heaven.
Gabriel (peace be upon him) (asked the door of heaven to be opened), and he was asked who he was.
He answered: Gabriel;
and was again asked: Who is with you?
He replied: Muhammad.
It was said: Has he been sent for?
He replied: He has indeed been sent for.

The gate was opened. When I entered 'Isa b. Maryam and Yahya b. Zakariya (peace be upon both of them), cousins from the maternal side. welcomed me and prayed for my good

Then I was taken to the third heaven
and Gabriel asked for the opening (of the door). He was asked: Who are you?
He replied: Gabriel.
He was (again) asked: Who is with you?
He replied Muhammad (may peace be upon him).
It was said: Has he been sent for?
He replied He has indeed been sent for.

(The gate) was opened for us and I saw Yusuf (peace of Allah be upon him) who had been given half of (world) beauty. He welcomed me prayed for my well-being.

Then he ascended with us to the fourth heaven. Gabriel (peace be upon him) asked for the (gate) to be opened, and it was said: Who is he?
He replied: Gabriel.
It was (again) said: Who is with you?
He said: Muhammad.
It was said: Has he been sent for?
He replied: He has indeed been sent for.

The (gate) was opened for us, and lo! Idris was there. He welcomed me and prayed for my well-being (About him) Allah, the Exalted and the Glorious,
has said:" We elevated him (Idris) to the exalted position" (Qur'an xix. 57).

Then he ascended with us to the fifth heaven and Gabriel asked for the (gate) to be opened.
It was said: Who is he?
He replied Gabriel.
It was (again) said: Who is with thee?
He replied: Muhammad.
It was said Has he been sent for?
He replied: He has indeed been sent for.

(The gate) was opened for us and then I was with Harun (Aaron-peace of Allah be upon him). He welcomed me prayed for my well-being.

Then I was taken to the sixth heaven. Gabriel (peace be upon him) asked for the door to be opened.
It was said: Who is he?
He replied: Gabriel.
It was said: Who is with thee?
He replied: Muhammad.
It was said: Has he been sent for?
He replied: He has indeed been sent for.

(The gate) was opened for us and there I was with Musa (Moses peace be upon him) He welcomed me and prayed for my well-being.

Then I was taken up to the seventh heaven. Gabriel asked the (gate) to be opened.
It was said: Who is he?
He said: Gabriel
It was said. Who is with thee?
He replied: Muhammad (may peace be upon him.)
It was said: Has he been sent for? He replied: He has indeed been sent for.

(The gate) was opened for us and there I found Ibrahim (Abraham peace be upon him) reclining against the Bait-ul-Ma'mur and there enter into it seventy thousand angels every day, never to visit (this place) again.
Then I was taken to Sidrat-ul-Muntaha whose leaves were like elephant ears and its fruit like big earthenware vessels. And when it was covered by the Command of Allah, it underwent such a change that none amongst the creation has the power to praise its beauty.

Then Allah revealed to me a revelation and He made obligatory for me fifty prayers every day and night.
Then I went down to Moses (peace be upon him) and he said: What has your Lord enjoined upon your Ummah?
I said: Fifty prayers.
He said: Return to thy Lord and beg for reduction (in the number of prayers), for your community shallnot be able to bear this burden. as I have put to test the children of Isra'il and tried them (and found them too weak to bear such a heavy burden).

He (the Holy Prophet) said: I went back to my Lord and said: My Lord, make things lighter for my Ummah. (The Lord) reduced five prayers for me.
I went down to Moses and said. (The Lord) reduced five (prayers) for me, He said: Verily thy Ummah shall not be able to bear this burden; return to thy Lord and ask Him to make things lighter.

I then kept going back and forth between my Lord Blessed and Exalted and Moses, till He said: There are five prayers every day and night. O Muhammad, each being credited as ten, so that makes fifty prayers. He who intends to do a good deed and does not do it will have a good deed recorded for him; and if he does it, it will be recorded for him as ten; whereas he who intends to do an evil deed and does not do, it will not be recorded for him; and if he does it, only one evil deed will be recorded.

I then came down and when I came to Moses and informed him, he said: Go back to thy Lord and ask Him to make things lighter. Upon this the Messenger of Allah remarked: I returned to my Lord until I felt ashamed before Him.

The Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessing of Allah be upon him
left 'ali b. Abi Talib behind him (as he proceeded) to the expedition of Tabuk,
whereupon he ('ali) said:
Allah's Messenger, are you leaving me behind amongst women and children?
Thereupon he (the Holy Prophet) said:
Aren't you satisfied with being unto me what Aaron was unto Moses
but with this exception that there would be no prophet after me.

A man asked the The Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessing of Allah be upon him
Messenger of Allah, we travel on the sea and take a small quantity of water with us.
If we use this for ablution, we would suffer from thirst.
Can we perform ablution with sea water?
The The Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessing of Allah be upon him replied:
Its water is pure and what dies in it is lawful food.

The Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessing of Allah be upon him said:
There is no prophet between me and him, that is,
jesus (peace_be_upon_him).
He will descent (to the earth).
When you see him, recognise him:
a man of medium height,
reddish fair,
wearing two light yellow garments,
looking as if drops were falling down from his head though it will not be wet.
He will fight the people for the cause of Islam.
He will break the cross,
kill swine, and abolish jizyah.
Allah will perish all religions except Islam.
He will destroy the Antichrist and will live on the earth for forty years and then he will die.
The Muslims will pray over him.

An-Nawwas b. Sam'an reported that

The Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessing of Allah be upon him made a mention of the Dajjal (The Anti Christ) one day in the morning.

He sometimes described him to be insignificant and sometimes described (his turmoil) as very significant rand we felt) as if he were in the cluster of the date-palm trees.

When we went to him (to the Holy Prophet) in the evening and he read (the signs of fear) in our faces,

he said: What is the matter with you?

We said: Allah's Messenger, you made a mention of the Dajjal in the morning (sometimes describing him) to be insignificant and sometimes very important, until we began to think as if he were present in some (near) part of the cluster of the datpalm trees.

Thereupon he said: I harbour fear in regard to you in so many other things besides the Dajjal. If he comes forth while I am among on, I shall contend with him on your behalf, but if he comes forth while I am not amongst you, a man must contend on his own behalf and Allah would take care of every Muslim on my behalf (and safeguard him against his evil).
He (Dajjal) would be a young man with twisted, contracted hair, and a blind eye. I compare him to 'Abd-ul-'Uzza b. Qatan.
He who amongst you would survive to see him should recite over him the opening verses of Sura Kahf (xviii.).
He would appear on the way between Syria and Iraq and would spread mischief right and left.
O servant of Allah! adhere (to the path of Truth).

We said: Allah's Messenger, how long would he stay on the earth?

He said.. For forty days, one day like a year and one day like a month and one day like a week and the rest of the days would be like your days.

We said: Allah's Messenger, would one day's prayer suffice for the prayers of day equal to one year?

Thereupon he said: No, but you must make an estimate of time (and then observe prayer).

We said: Allah's Messenger, how quickly would he walk upon the earth?

Thereupon he said: Like cloud driven by the wind. He would come to the people and invite them (to a wrong religion) and they would affirm their faith in him and respond to him. He would then give command to the sky and there would be rainfall upon the earth and it would grow crops. Then in the evening, their posturing animals would come to them with their humps very high and their udders full of milk and their flanks stretched. He would then come to another people and invite them. But they would reject him and he would go away from them and there would be drought for them and nothing would be lef t with them in the form of wealth. He would then walk through the waste, land and say to it: Bring forth your treasures, and the treasures would come out and collect (themselves) before him like the swarm of bees. He would then call a person brimming with youth and strike him with the sword and cut him into two pieces and (make these pieces lie at a distance which is generally) between the archer and his target. He would then call (that young man) and he will come forward laughing with his face gleaming (with happiness)

and it would at this very time that Allah would send Christ, son of Mary, and he will descend at the white minaret in the eastern side of Damscus wearing two garments lightly dyed with saffron and placing his hands on the wings of two Angels. When he would lower his head, there would fall beads of perspiration from his head, and when he would raise it up, beads like pearls would scatter from it. Every non-believer who would smell the odour of his self would die and his breath would reach as far as he would be able to see. He would then search for him (Dajjal) until he would catch hold of him at the gate of Ludd and would kill him. Then a people whom Allah had protected would come to Jesus, son of Mary, and he would wipe their faces and would inform them of their ranks in Paradise and it would be under such conditions that Allah would reveal to Jesus these words: I have brought forth from amongst My servants such people against whom none would be able to fight; you take these people safely to Tur, and then Allah would send Gog and Magog and they would swarm down from every slope. The first of them would pass the lake of Tibering and drink out of it. And when the last of them would pass, he would say: There was once water there.

Jesus and his companions would then be besieged here (at Tur, and they would be so much hard pressed) that the head of the ox would be dearer to them than one hundred dinirs
and Allah's Apostle, Jesus, and his companions would supplicate Allah, Who would send to them insects (which would attack their necks) and in the morning they would perish like one single person.
Allah's Apostle, Jesus, and his companions would then come down to the earth and they would not find in the earth as much space as a single span which is not filled with their putrefaction and stench.

Allah's Apostle, Jesus, and his companions would then again beseech Allah, Who would send birds whose necks would be like those of bactrin camels and they would carry them and throw them where God would will.

Then Allah would send rain which no house of clay or (the tent of) camels' hairs would keep out and it would wash away the earth until it could appear to be a mirror.

Then the earth would be told to bring forth its fruit and restore its blessing and, as a result thereof, there would grow (such a big) pomegranate that a group of persons would be able to eat that, and seek shelter under its skin and milch cow would give so much milk that a whole party would be able to drink it. And the milch camel would give such (a large quantity of) milk that the whole tribe would be able to drink out of that and the milch sheep would give so much milk that the whole family would be able to drink out of that and at that time Allah would send a pleasant wind which would soothe (people) even under their armpits, and would take the life of every Muslim and only the wicked would survive who would commit adultery like asses and the Last Hour would come to them.

The Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessing of Allah be upon him entered an orchid belonging to an Ansari
and saw there a camel. When it saw him, it began to groan and its eyes shed tears.

The Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessing of Allah be upon him approached it and patted it on the hump and the base of its head until it quieted down.

Then The Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessing of Allah be upon him asked,
"Who is the owner of this camel? To whom does it belong?''
An Ansari youth stepped forward and said: "It is mine O Messenger of Allah!''

The Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessing of Allah be upon him said,
"Do you not fear Allah in respect of this beast which Allah has placed in your possession? This camel is complaining to me that you starve it and put it to toil.
