Volumn 008, Book 082, Hadith Number 794.
-----------------------------------------
Narated By Anas : Some people from the tribe of 'Ukl came to the Prophet and embraced Islam. The climate of
Medina did not suit them, so the Prophet ordered them to go to the (herd of milch) camels of charity and to drink,
their milk and urine (as a medicine). They did so, and after they had recovered from their ailment (became
healthy) they turned renegades (reverted from Islam) and killed the shepherd of the camels and took the camels
away. The Prophet sent (some people) in their pursuit and so they were (caught and) brought, and the Prophets
ordered that their hands and legs should be cut off and that their eyes should be branded with heated pieces of
iron, and that their cut hands and legs should not be cauterised, till they die.

-----------------------------------------
Narated By Anas : A group of people from 'Ukl (tribe) came to the Prophet and they were living with the people of
As-Suffa, but they became ill as the climate of Medina did not suit them, so they said, "O Allah's Apostle! Provide
us with milk." The Prophet said, I see no other way for you than to use the camels of Allah's Apostle." So they
went and drank the milk and urine of the camels, (as medicine) and became healthy and fat. Then they killed the
shepherd and took the camels away. When a help-seeker came to Allah's Apostle, he sent some men in their
pursuit, and they were captured and brought before mid day. The Prophet ordered for some iron pieces to be
made red hot, and their eyes were branded with them and their hands and feet were cut off and were not
cauterised. Then they were put at a place called Al-Harra, and when they asked for water to drink they were not
given till they died. (Abu Qilaba said, "Those people committed theft and murder and fought against Allah and His
Apostle.")

Narated By Anas bin Malik : A group of people from 'Ukl (or 'Uraina) tribe... but I think he said that they were from
'Ukl came to Medina and (they became ill, so) the Prophet ordered them to go to the herd of (Milch) she-camels
and told them to go out and drink the camels' urine and milk (as a medicine). So they went and drank it, and when
they became healthy, they killed the shepherd and drove away the camels. This news reached the Prophet early
in the morning, so he sent (some) men in their pursuit and they were captured and brought to the Prophet before
midday. He ordered to cut off their hands and legs and their eyes to be branded with heated iron pieces and they
were thrown at Al-Harra, and when they asked for water to drink, they were not given water. (Abu Qilaba said,
"Those were the people who committed theft and murder and reverted to disbelief after being believers (Muslims),
and fought against Allah and His Apostle").

Narated By Abu Huraira : The Prophet said, "Seven (people) will be shaded by Allah by His Shade on the Day of
Resurrection when there will be no shade except His Shade. (They will be), a just ruler, a young man who has
been brought up in the worship of Allah, a man who remembers Allah in seclusion and his eyes are then flooded
with tears, a man whose heart is attached to mosques (offers his compulsory congregational prayers in the
mosque), two men who love each other for Allah's Sake, a man who is called by a charming lady of noble birth to
commit illegal sexual intercourse with her, and he says, 'I am afraid of Allah,' and (finally), a man who gives in
charity so secretly that his left hand does not know what his right hand has given."

------------------------------------------
Narated By Anas : I will narrate to you a narration which nobody will narrate to you after me. I heard that form the
Prophet. I heard the Prophet saying, "The Hour sill not be established" or said: "From among the portents of the
Hour is that the religious knowledge will betaken away (by the death of religious Scholars) and general ignorance
(of religion) will appear; and the drinking of alcoholic drinks will be very common, and (open) illegal sexual
intercourse will prevail, and men will decrease in number while women will increase so much so that, for fifty
women there will only be one man to look after them."


Volumn 008, Book 082, Hadith Number 800B.
------------------------------------------
Narated By 'Ikrima from Ibn 'Abbas : Allah's Apostles said, "When a slave (of Allah) commits illegal sexual
intercourse, he is not a believer at the time of committing it; and if he steals, he is not a believer at the time of
stealing; and if he drinks an alcoholic drink, when he is not a believer at the time of drinking it; and he is not a
believer when he commits a murder," 'Ikrima said: I asked Ibn Abbas, "How is faith taken away from him?" He said,
Like this," by clasping his hands and then separating them, and added, "But if he repents, faith returns to him like
this, by clasping his hands again.


Volumn 008, Book 082, Hadith Number 801.
-----------------------------------------
Narated By Abu Huraira : The Prophet said, "The one who commits an illegal sexual intercourse is not a believer
at the time of committing illegal sexual intercourse and a thief is not a believer at the time of committing theft and a
drinker of alcoholic drink is not a believer at the time of drinking. Yet, (the gate of) repentance is open thereafter."

the wife of your neighbour."

called him, saying, "Are you mad?" The man said, "No." The Prophet said, "Are you married?" The man said,
"Yes." Then the Prophet said, 'Take him away and stone him to death." Jabir bin 'Abdullah said: I was among the
ones who participated in stoning him and we stoned him at the Musalla. When the stones troubled him, he fled,
but we over took him at Al-Harra and stoned him to death.

Prophet said, "The boy is for you, O 'Abd bin Zam'a, for the boy is for (the owner) of the bed. O Sauda ! Screen
yourself from the boy." The sub-narrator, Al-Laith added (that the Prophet also said), "And the stone is for the
person who commits an illegal sexual intercourse."

Narated By Ibn 'Umar : A Jew and a Jewess were brought to Allah's Apostle on a charge of committing an illegal
sexual intercourse. The Prophet asked them. "What is the legal punishment (for this sin) in your Book (Torah)?"
They replied, "Our priests have innovated the punishment of blackening the faces with charcoal and Tajbiya."
'Abdullah bin Salam said, "O Allah's Apostle, tell them to bring the Torah." The Torah was brought, and then one
of the Jews put his hand over the Divine Verse of the Rajam (stoning to death) and started reading what
preceded and what followed it. On that, Ibn Salam said to the Jew, "Lift up your hand." Behold! The Divine Verse
of the Rajam was under his hand. So Allah's Apostle ordered that the two (sinners) be stoned to death, and so
they were stoned. Ibn 'Umar added: So both of them were stoned at the Balat and I saw the Jew sheltering the
Jewess.

meantime there came a person driving a donkey carrying food to the Prophet... (The sub-narrator, 'Abdur
Rahman added: I do not know what kind of food it was). On that the Prophet said, "Where is the burnt person?"
The man said, "Here I am." The Prophet said to him, "Take this (food) and give it in charity (to someone)." The

who was wiser than him, got up saying (to Allah's Apostle) "Judge us according to Allah's Law and kindly allow me
(to speak)." The Prophet said, "'Speak." He said, "My son was a laborer working for this man and he committed an
illegal sexual intercourse with his wife, and I gave one-hundred sheep and a slave as a ransom for my son's sin.
Then I asked a learned man about this case and he informed me that my son should receive one hundred lashes
and be exiled for one year, and the man's wife should be stoned to death." The Prophet said, "By Him in Whose
Hand my soul is, I will judge you according to the Laws of Allah. Your one-hundred sheep and the slave are to be
returned to you, and your son has to receive one-hundred lashes and be exiled for one year. O Unais! Go to the
wife of this man, and if she confesses, then stone her to death." Unais went to her and she confessed. He then
stoned her to death.


Volumn 008, Book 082, Hadith Number 816.
-----------------------------------------
Narated By Ibn 'Abbas : 'Umar said, "I am afraid that after a long time has passed, people may say, "We do not
find the Verses of the Rajam (stoning to death) in the Holy Book," and consequently they may go astray by
leaving an obligation that Allah has revealed. Lo! I confirm that the penalty of Rajam be inflicted on him who
commits illegal sexual intercourse, if he is already married and the crime is proved by witnesses or pregnancy or
confession." Sufyan added, "I have memorized this narration in this way." 'Umar added, "Surely Allah's Apostle
carried out the penalty of Rajam, and so did we after him."


Volumn 008, Book 082, Hadith Number 817.
-----------------------------------------
Narated By Ibn 'Abbas : I used to teach (the Qur'an to) some people of the Muhajirln (emigrants), among whom
there was 'Abdur Rahman bin 'Auf. While I was in his house at Mina, and he was with 'Umar bin Al-Khattab during
'Umar's last Hajj, Abdur-Rahman came to me and said, "Would that you had seen the man who came today to the
Chief of the Believers ('Umar), saying, 'O Chief of the Believers! What do you think about so-and-so who says, 'If
'Umar should die, I will give the pledge of allegiance to such-and-such person, as by Allah, the pledge of
allegiance to Abu Bakr was nothing but a prompt sudden action which got established afterwards.' 'Umar became
angry and then said, 'Allah willing, I will stand before the people tonight and warn them against those people who
want to deprive the others of their rights (the question of ruler-ship)."

'Abdur-Rahman said, "I said, 'O Chief of the believers! Do not do that, for the season of Hajj gathers the riff-raff
and the rubble, and it will be they who will gather around you when you stand to address the people. And I am
afraid that you will get up and say something, and some people will spread your statement and may not say what
you have actually said and may not understand its meaning, and may interpret it incorrectly, so you should wait till
you reach Medina, as it is the place of emigration and the place of Prophet's Traditions, and there you can come
in touch with the learned and noble people, and tell them your ideas with confidence; and the learned people will
understand your statement and put it in its proper place.' On that, 'Umar said, 'By Allah! Allah willing, I will do this
in the first speech I will deliver before the people in Medina."

Ibn Abbas added: We reached Medina by the end of the month of Dhul-Hijja, and when it was Friday, we went
quickly (to the mosque) as soon as the sun had declined, and I saw Sa'id bin Zaid bin 'Amr bin Nufail sitting at the
corner of the pulpit, and I too sat close to him so that my knee was touching his knee, and after a short while
'Umar bin Al-Khattab came out, and when I saw him coming towards us, I said to Said bin Zaid bin 'Amr bin Nufail
"Today 'Umar will say such a thing as he has never said since he was chosen as Caliph." Said denied my
statement with astonishment and said, "What thing do you expect 'Umar to say the like of which he has never said
before?"

In the meantime, 'Umar sat on the pulpit and when the call-makers for the prayer had finished their call, 'Umar
stood up, and having glorified and praised Allah as He deserved, he said, "Now then, I am going to tell you
something which (Allah) has written for me to say. I do not know; perhaps it portends my death, so whoever
understands and remembers it, must narrate it to the others wherever his mount takes him, but if somebody is
afraid that he does not understand it, then it is unlawful for him to tell lies about me. Allah sent Muhammad with
the Truth and revealed the Holy Book to him, and among what Allah revealed, was the Verse of the Rajam (the
stoning of married person (male & female) who commits illegal sexual intercourse, and we did recite this Verse
and understood and memorized it. Allah's Apostle did carry out the punishment of stoning and so did we after him.

I am afraid that after a long time has passed, somebody will say, 'By Allah, we do not find the Verse of the Rajam
in Allah's Book,' and thus they will go astray by leaving an obligation which Allah has revealed. And the
punishment of the Rajam is to be inflicted to any married person (male & female), who commits illegal sexual
intercourse, if the required evidence is available or there is conception or confession. And then we used to recite
among the Verses in Allah's Book: 'O people! Do not claim to be the offspring of other than your fathers, as it is
disbelief (unthankfulness) on your part that you claim to be the offspring of other than your real father.' Then
Allah's Apostle said, 'Do not praise me excessively as Jesus, son of Marry was praised, but call me Allah's Slave
and His Apostles.' (O people!) I have been informed that a speaker amongst you says, 'By Allah, if 'Umar should
die, I will give the pledge of allegiance to such-and-such person.' One should not deceive oneself by saying that
the pledge of allegiance given to Abu Bakr was given suddenly and it was successful. No doubt, it was like that,
but Allah saved (the people) from its evil, and there is none among you who has the qualities of Abu Bakr.
Remember that whoever gives the pledge of allegiance to anybody among you without consulting the other
Muslims, neither that person, nor the person to whom the pledge of allegiance was given, are to be supported,
lest they both should be killed.

And no doubt after the death of the Prophet we were informed that the Ansar disagreed with us and gathered in
the shed of Bani Sa'da. 'Ali and Zubair and whoever was with them, opposed us, while the emigrants gathered
with Abu Bakr. I said to Abu Bakr, 'Let's go to these Ansari brothers of ours.' So we set out seeking them, and
when we approached them, two pious men of theirs met us and informed us of the final decision of the Ansar, and
said, 'O group of Muhajirin (emigrants) ! Where are you going?' We replied, 'We are going to these Ansari
brothers of ours.' They said to us, 'You shouldn't go near them. Carry out whatever we have already decided.' I
said, 'By Allah, we will go to them.' And so we proceeded until we reached them at the shed of Bani Sa'da. Behold!
There was a man sitting amongst them and wrapped in something. I asked, 'Who is that man?' They said, 'He is
Sa'd bin 'Ubada.' I asked, 'What is wrong with him?' They said, 'He is sick.' After we sat for a while, the Ansar's
speaker said, 'None has the right to be worshipped but Allah,' and praising Allah as He deserved, he added, 'To
proceed, we are Allah's Ansar (helpers) and the majority of the Muslim army, while you, the emigrants, are a small
group and some people among you came with the intention of preventing us from practicing this matter (of
caliphate) and depriving us of it.'

When the speaker had finished, I intended to speak as I had prepared a speech which I liked and which I wanted
to deliver in the presence of Abu Bakr, and I used to avoid provoking him. So, when I wanted to speak, Abu Bakr
said, 'Wait a while.' I disliked to make him angry. So Abu Bakr himself gave a speech, and he was wiser and more
patient than I. By Allah, he never missed a sentence that I liked in my own prepared speech, but he said the like of
it or better than it spontaneously. After a pause he said, 'O Ansar! You deserve all (the qualities that you have
attributed to yourselves, but this question (of Caliphate) is only for the Quraish as they are the best of the Arabs
as regards descent and home, and I am pleased to suggest that you choose either of these two men, so take the
oath of allegiance to either of them as you wish. And then Abu Bakr held my hand and Abu Ubada bin Abdullah's
hand who was sitting amongst us. I hated nothing of what he had said except that proposal, for by Allah, I would
rather have my neck chopped off as expiator for a sin than become the ruler of a nation, one of whose members
is Abu Bakr, unless at the time of my death my own-self suggests something I don't feel at present.'

And then one of the Ansar said, 'I am the pillar on which the camel with a skin disease (eczema) rubs itself to
satisfy the itching (i.e., I am a noble), and I am as a high class palm tree! O Quraish. There should be one ruler
from us and one from you.'

Then there was a hue and cry among the gathering and their voices rose so that I was afraid there might be great
disagreement, so I said, 'O Abu Bakr! Hold your hand out.' He held his hand out and I pledged allegiance to him,
and then all the emigrants gave the Pledge of allegiance and so did the Ansar afterwards. And so we became
victorious over Sa'd bin Ubada (whom Al-Ansar wanted to make a ruler). One of the Ansar said, 'You have killed
Sa'd bin Ubada.' I replied, 'Allah has killed Sa'd bin Ubada.' Umar added, "By Allah, apart from the great tragedy
that had happened to us (i.e. the death of the Prophet), there was no greater problem than the allegiance
pledged to Abu Bakr because we were afraid that if we left the people, they might give the Pledge of allegiance
after us to one of their men, in which case we would have given them our consent for something against our real
wish, or would have opposed them and caused great trouble. So if any person gives the Pledge of allegiance to
somebody (to become a Caliph) without consulting the other Muslims, then the one he has selected should not be
granted allegiance, lest both of them should be killed."

Narated By Abu Huraira and Zaid bin Khalid : A bedouin came to the Prophet while he (the Prophet) was sitting,
and said, "O Allah's Apostle! Give your verdict according to Allah's Laws (in our case)." Then his opponent got up
and said, "He has told the truth, O Allah's Apostle! Decide his case according to Allah's Laws. My son was a
labourer working for this person, and he committed illegal sexual intercourse with his wife, and the people told me
that my son should be stoned to death, but I offered one-hundred sheep and a slave girl as a ransom for him.
Then I asked the religious learned people, and they told me that my son should be flogged with one-hundred
stripes and be exiled for one year." The Prophet said, "By Him in Whose Hand my soul is, I will judge you
according to Allah's Laws. The sheep and the slave girl will be returned to you and your son will be flogged
one-hundred stripes and be exiled for one year. And you, O Unais! Go to the wife of this man (and if she
confesses), stone her to death." So Unais went in the morning and stoned her to death (after she had confessed).

-----------------------------------------
Narated By Abu Huraira and Said bin Khalid : The verdict of Allah's Apostle was sought about an unmarried slave
girl guilty of illegal intercourse. He replied, "If she commits illegal sexual intercourse, then flog her (fifty stripes),
and if she commits illegal sexual intercourse (after that for the second time), then flog her (fifty stripes), and if she
commits illegal sexual intercourse (for the third time), then flog her (fifty stripes) and sell her for even a hair rope."
Ibn Shihab said, "I am not sure whether the Prophet ordered that she be sold after the third or fourth time of
committing illegal intercourse."


Volumn 008, Book 082, Hadith Number 823.
-----------------------------------------
Narated By Abu Huraira : The Prophet said, "If a lady slave commits illegal sexual intercourse and she is proved
guilty of illegal sexual intercourse, then she should be flogged (fifty stripes) but she should not be admonished;
and if she commits illegal sexual intercourse again, then she should be flogged again but should not be
admonished; and if she commits illegal sexual intercourse for the third time, then she should be sold even for a
hair rope."


Volumn 008, Book 082, Hadith Number 824.
-----------------------------------------
Narated By Ash-Shaibani : I asked 'Abdullah bin Abi 'Aufa about the Rajam (stoning somebody to death for
committing illegal sexual intercourse). He replied, "The Prophet carried out the penalty of Rajam," I asked, "Was
that before or after the revelation of Surat-an-Nur?" He replied, "I do not know."


Volumn 008, Book 082, Hadith Number 825.
-----------------------------------------
Narated By Abdullah bin Umar : The jews came to Allah's Apostle and mentioned to him that a man and a lady
among them had committed illegal sexual intercourse. Allah's Apostle said to them, "What do you find in the Torah
regarding the Rajam?" They replied, "We only disgrace and flog them with stripes." 'Abdullah bin Salam said to
them, 'You have told a lie the penalty of Rajam is in the Torah.' They brought the Torah and opened it. One of
them put his hand over the verse of the Rajam and read what was before and after it. Abdullah bin Salam said to
him, "Lift up your hand." Where he lifted it there appeared the verse of the Rajam. So they said, "O Muhammad!
He has said the truth, the verse of the Rajam is in it (Torah)." Then Allah's Apostle ordered that the two persons
(guilty of illegal sexual intercourse) be stoned to death, and so they were stoned, and I saw the man bending over
the woman so as to protect her from the stones.


Volumn 008, Book 082, Hadith Number 826.
-----------------------------------------
Narated By Abu Huraira and Zaid bin Khalid : Two men had a dispute in the presence of Allah's Apostle. One of
them said, "Judge us according to Allah's Laws." The other who was more wise said, "Yes, Allah's Apostle, judge
us according to Allah's Laws and allow me to speak (first)" The Prophet said to him, 'Speak " He said, "My son was
a labourer for this man, and he committed illegal sexual intercourse with his wife, and the people told me that my
son should be stoned to death, but I have given one-hundred sheep and a slave girl as a ransom (expiation) for
my son's sin. Then I asked the religious learned people (about It), and they told me that my son should he flogged
one-hundred stripes and should be exiled for one year, and only the wife of this man should be stoned to death "
Allah's Apostle said, "By Him in Whose Hand my soul is, I will judge you according to Allah's Laws: O man, as for
your sheep and slave girl, they are to be returned to you." Then the Prophet had the man's son flogged one
hundred stripes and exiled for one year, and ordered Unais Al-Aslami to go to the wife of the other man, and if
she confessed, stone her to death. She confessed and was stoned to death.

Narated By 'Aisha : Abu Bakr came to me while Allah's Apostle was sleeping with his head on my thigh. Abu Bakr

of Allah's Apostle (on my thigh), and then Allah revealed the Divine Verse of Tayammum.

have more sense of ghira than Sa'd, and Allah has more sense of ghira than I."

up Al-Wisal, the Prophet fasted along with them for one day, and did not break his fast but continued his fast for
another day, and when they saw the crescent, the Prophet said, "If the crescent had not appeared, I would have

illegal sexual intercourse when I was fifteen years old. The Prophet ordered that they be divorced, and the
husband said, "If I kept her, I would be a liar." I remember that Az-Zubair also said, "(It was said) that if that woman
brought forth the child with such-and-such description, her husband would prove truthful, but if she brought it with
such-and-such description looking like a Wahra (a red insect), he would prove untruthful." I heard Az-Zubair also
saying, "Finally she gave birth to a child of description which her husband disliked.

herself (by her suspicious behaviour)."

it, and when he left, a man from his tribe came to him complaining that he had seen a man with his wife. Asim said,
"I have been put to trial only because of my statement." So he took the man to the Prophet and the man told him
about the incident. The man (husband) was of yellow complexion, thin, and of lank hair, while the man whom he
had accused of having been with his wife, was reddish brown with fat thick legs and fat body. The Prophet said,
"O Allah! Reveal the truth." Later on the lady delivered a child resembling the man whom the husband had
accused of having been with her. So the Prophet made them take the oath of Lian. A man said to Ibn Abbas in the
gathering, "Was that the same lady about whom the Prophet said, "If I were to stone any lady (for committing
illegal sexual intercourse) to death without witnesses, I would have stoned that lade to death?" Ibn Abbas said,
"No, that was another lady who used to behave in such a suspicious way among the Muslims that one might
accuse her of committing illegal sexual intercourse."

judge us according to Allah's Laws." Then his opponent who was wiser than he, got up and said, "He has spoken
the truth. So judge us according to Allah's Laws and please allow me (to speak), O Allah's Apostle." The Prophet
said, "Speak." He said, "My son was a labourer for the family of this man and he committed illegal sexual
intercourse with his wife, and I gave one-hundred sheep and a slave as a ransom (for my son), but I asked the
religious learned people (regarding this case), and they informed me that my son should be flogged one-hundred
stripes, and be exiled for one year, and the wife of this man should be stoned (to death)."The Prophet said, "By
Him in Whose Hand my soul is, I will Judge you (in this case) according to Allah's Laws. The one-hundred (sheep)
and the slave shall be returned to you and your son shall be flogged one-hundred stripes and be exiled for one
year. And O Unais! Go in the morning to the wife of this man and ask her, and if she confesses, stone her to
death." She confessed and he stoned her to death.
