The Apostle of Allah (peace be upon him) announced an expedition,and I was a very old man and I had no servant. I, therefore,sought a hireling who would serve instead of me, and I would givehim his portion. So I found a man. When the time of departurearrived, he came to me and said: I do not know what would be theportions, and how much would be my portion. So offer something(as wages) to me, whether there would be any portion or not. Ioffered three dinars (as his wages) for him. When some bootyarrived, I wanted to offer him his portion. But I remembered thedinars, so I went to the Prophet (peace be upon him) andmentioned the matter to him. He said: All I can find for himregarding this expedition of his in this world and the next isthree dinars which were offered him.

Allah's Apostle said, "I was in seclusion in the cave of Hiram', and after I completed the limited period of my seclusion. I came down (from the cave) and heard a voice calling me. I looked to my right, but saw nothing. Then I looked up and saw something. So I went to Khadija (the Prophet's wife) and told her to wrap me up and pour cold water on me.

Once the Prophet called the Ansar in order to grant them part of the land of Bahrain. On that they said, "No! By Allah, we will not accept it unless you grant a similar thing to our Quraish brothers as well." He said, "That will be theirs if Allah wishes." But when the Ansar persisted in their request, he said, "After me you will see others given preference over you in this respect (in which case) you should be patient till you meet me at the Tank (of Al-Kauthar)."

I fought in Jaish-al-Usra (Ghazwa of Tabuk) along with the Prophet and in my opinion that was the best of my deeds. Then I had an employee, who quarrelled with someone and one of the them bit and cut the other's finger and caused his own tooth to fall out. He then went to the Prophet (with a complaint) but the Prophet canceled the suit and said to the complainant, "Did you expect him to let his finger in your mouth so that you might snap and cut it (as does a stallion camel)?"
Narrated Ibn Juraij from Abdullah bin Abu Mulaika from his grandfather a similar story: A man bit the hand of another man and caused his own tooth to fall out, but Abu Bakr judged that he had no right for compensation (for the broken tooth).
While I was with Allah's Apostle there came to him a man wearing a cloak having a trace of yellowish perfume or a similar thing on it. 'Umar used to say to me, "Would you like to see the Prophet at the time when he is inspired divinely?" So, it happened that he was inspired (then) and when the inspiration was over the Prophet said (to that man), "Do in your 'Umra the same as you do in your Hajj." A man bit the hand of another man but in that process the latter broke one incisor tooth of the former, and the Prophet forgave the latter.
I participated in the Ghazwa of Tabuk along with Allah's Apostle and I gave a young camel to be ridden in Jihad and that was, to me, one of my best deeds. Then I employed a laborer who quarrelled with another person. One of them bit the hand of the other and the latter drew his hand from the mouth of the former pulling out his front tooth. Then the former instituted a suit against the latter before the Prophet who rejected that suit saying, "Do you expect him to put out his hand for you to snap as a male camel snaps (vegetation)?"

Then he was asked about a lost camel. He got angry and his face became red and he said (to the questioner), "You have nothing to do with it; it has its feet and its water container with it; it can go on drinking water and eating trees till its owner meets it." And then the Prophet was asked about a Luqata (money found by somebody). He said, "Remember and recognize its tying material and its container, and make public announcement about it for one year. If somebody comes and identifies it (then give it to him), otherwise add it to your property."
I said to Salama, "For what did you give the Pledge of allegiance to the Prophet on the Day of Hudaibiya?" He replied, "For death."

I saw the trace of a wound in Salama's leg. I said to him, "O Abu Muslim! What is this wound?" He said, "This was inflicted on me on the day of Khaibar and the people said, 'Salama has been wounded.' Then I went to the Prophet and he puffed his saliva in it (i.e. the wound) thrice, and since then I have not had any pain in it till this hour."
Salama bin Al-Akwa' said, "I fought in seven Ghazwat along with the Prophet." He then mentioned Khaibar, Al-Hudaibiya, the day (i.e. battle) of Hunain and the day of Al-Qurad. I forgot the names of the other Ghazwat.
I used to accompany Salama bin Al-Akwa' and he used to pray behind the pillar which was near the place where the Qur'an's were kept I said, "O Abu Muslim! I see you always seeking to pray behind this pillar." He replied, "I saw Allah's Apostle always seeking to pray near that pillar."
'Aisha said that the Prophet said to her, "O Aisha! Were your nation not close to the pre-Islamic period of Ignorance, I would have had the Ka'ba demolished and would have included in it the portion which had been left, and would have made it at a level with the ground and would have made two doors for it, one towards the east and the other towards the west, and then by doing this it would have been built on the foundations laid by Abraham." That was what urged Ibn-Az-Zubair to demolish the Ka'ba. Jazz said, "I saw Ibn-Az-Zubair when he demolished and rebuilt the Ka'ba and included in it a portion of Al-Hijr (the unroofed portion of Ka'ba which is at present in the form of a compound towards the northwest of the Ka'ba). I saw the original foundations of Abraham which were of stones resembling the humps of camels." So Jarir asked Yazid, "Where was the place of those stones?" Jazz said, "I will just now show it to you." So Jarir accompanied Yazid and entered Al-Hijr, and Jazz pointed to a place and said, "Here it is." Jarir said, "It appeared to me about six cubits from Al-Hijr or so."
Salama said, "I gave the pledge of allegiance (Al-Ridwan) to Allah's Apostle and then I moved to the shade of a tree. When the number of people around the Prophet diminished, he said, O Ibn Al-Akwa! Will you not give to me the pledge of allegiance?' I replied, 'O Allah's Apostle! I have already given to you the pledge of allegiance.' He said, 'Do it again.' So I gave the pledge of allegiance for the second time." I asked 'O Abu Muslim! For what did you give he pledge of allegiance on that day?" He replied, "We gave the pledge of allegiance for death."
We were at Mirbad. A man with dishevelled hair and holding apiece of red skin in his hand came. We said: You appear to be abedouin. He said: Yes. We said: Give us this piece of skin inyour hand. He then gave it to us and we read it. It contained thetext: "From Muhammad, Apostle of Allah (peace be upon him), toBanu Zuhayr ibn Uqaysh. If you bear witness that there is no godbut Allah, and that Muhammad is the Apostle of Allah, offerprayer, pay zakat, pay the fifth from the booty, and the portionof the Prophet (peace be upon him) and his special portion(safi), you will be under by the protection of Allah and HisApostle." We then asked: Who wrote this document for you? Hereplied: The Apostle of Allah (peace be upon him).
I came while the Prophet (peace be upon him) was saying theprayer. I sat down and did not pray along with them. The Apostleof Allah (peace be upon him) turned towards us and saw that Yazidwas sitting there. He said: Did you not embrace Islam, Yazid? Hereplied: Why not, Apostle of Allah; I have embraced Islam. Hesaid: What prevented you from saying prayer along with thepeople? He replied: I have already prayed in my house, and Ithought that you had prayed (in congregation). He said: When youcome to pray (in the mosque) and find the people praying, thenyou should pray along with them, though you have already prayed.This will be a supererogatory prayer for you and that will becounted as obligatory.
