Narrated Abdullah

Umm Habibah, the wife of Allah's Apostle (peace be upon him) said: O Allah, enable me to derive benefit from my husband, the Messenger of Allah (May peace be upon him), and from my father, AbuSufyan, and from my brother, Mu'awiyah. Allah's Apostle (peace be upon him) said: You have asked from Allah about durations of life already set, the length of days already allotted, and the sustenances, the share of which has been fixed. Allah will not do anything before its due time, nor will He delay anything beyond its due time. And if you were to ask Allah to provide you with refuge from the torment of the Hell-Fire, or from the torment of the grave, it would have good in store for you and better things for you also. He (the narrator) added: Mention was made before him of monkeys, and Mis'ar (one of the narrators) said: I think that (the narrator) also (mentioned) swine which had suffered metamorphosis. Thereupon he (the Holy Prophet) said: Verily, Allah did not cause the race of those which suffered metamorphosis to grow, or they were not survived by young ones. Monkeys and swine have been in existence even before (the metamorphosis of the human beings).
