adulteress) and after him, we also awarded the punishment of stoning to death.

Abdullah b. Salam who was at that time with the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: Command him (the reciter) to lift his hand. He lifted his hand and there was, underneath that, the verse pertaining to stoning. Allah's Messenger (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) pronounced judgement about both of them and they were stoned. Abdullah b. Umar said: I was one of those who stoned them, and I saw him(the Jew) protecting her (theJewess with his body(Muslim).

342.Allah the Almighty has said: O son Of Adam, so long as you call upon Me and ask of Me, I shall forgive you for what you have done, and I shall not mind.

religion will not be able to continue in that way. So you should not be

extremists, but try to be near to perfection and receive the good tidings that you will be rewarded; and gain strength by worshipping in the mornings,

afternoons and during the last hours of the nights."

(Sahih Al-Bukhari Vol 1).(Dr. Muhammad Muhsin Khan et.al.).

386.Narrated Umar (bin Al-Khattab) (Allah be pleased with him): Allah's Apostle (peace be upon him) said, "The reward of deeds depends upon the intention and every person will get the reward according to what he has intended. So whoever emigrated for Allah and His Apostle (peace be upon him) then his emigration was for Allah and his Apostle (peace be upon him). And whoever emigrated for worldly benefits or for a woman to marry, his emigration was what he emigrated for." (Sahih Al-Bukhari Vol 1).

Al-Khattab (Allah be pleased with him) asked, "Which is that verse?" The Jew

replied, "This day I have perfected your religion for you, completed My favour upon  you, And have chosen for you Islam as your religion." (5:3)

@AL-MIRAJ

(i.e. Ascension of the Prophet (peace be upon him) to the heavens).

390.Narrated Anas bin Malik from Malik bin Sa'sa'a (Allah be pleased with him) that Allah's Apostle (peace be upon him) described to them his Night Journey saying, "While I was lying in Al-Hatim or Al-Hijr, suddenly someone came to me and cut my body open from here to here." I asked Al-Jarud who was by my side, "It means from his throat to his pubic area," or said, "from the top of the chest." The Prophet (peace be upon him) further said, "He then took out my heart. Then a gold tray full of Belief was brought to me and my heart was washed and was filled (with Belief) and then returned to its original place. Then a white animal which was smaller than a mule and bigger than a donkey, was brought to me." (on this Al-Jarud asked, "Was it the Buraq, O Abu Hamza?" I (i.e. Anas)

replied in the affirmative). The Prophet (peace be upon him) said, "The animal's step (was so wide that it) reached the farthest point within the reach of the animal's sight. I was carried on it, and Gabriel set out with me till we reached the nearest heaven. When he asked for the gate to be opened it was asked, 'Who is it?' Gabriel answered, 'Gabriel' It was asked, 'Who is accompanying you?' Gabriel replied, 'Muhammad.' It was asked, 'Has Muhammad been called?' Gabriel replied in affirmative. Then it was said, 'He is welcomed. What an excellent

visit his is!' The gate was opened, and when I went over the first heaven, I saw Adam there. Gabriel said (to me), 'This is your father, Adam; pay him your greetings.' So I greeted him and he returned the greeting to me and said, 'You are welcomed, o pious son and pious Prophet.' Then Gabriel ascended with me till we reached the second heaven. Gabriel asked for the gate to be opened. It was asked, 'Who is it?' Gabriel answered, 'Gabriel' It was asked, 'Who is accompanying you?' Gabriel replied, 'Muhammad.' It was asked, 'Has he been called?' Gabriel answered in the affirmative. Then it was said, 'He is welcomed. What an excellent visit his is!' The gate was opened, and when I went over the second heaven, there I saw Yaya (i.e. John) and Isa (i.e. Jesus), who were cousins of each other. Gabriel said (to me), 'These are John and Jesus; pay them your greetings.' So I greeted them and both of them returned my greetings to me and said, 'You are welcomed, o pious brother and pious Prophet.' Then Gabriel ascended with me to the third heaven and asked for its gate to be opened. It was asked, 'Who is it?' Gabriel answered, 'Gabriel' It was asked, 'Who is accompanying you?' Gabriel replied, 'Muhammad.' It was asked, 'Has he been called?' Gabriel replied in the affirmative. Then it was said, 'He is welcomed. What an excellent visit his is!' The gate was opened, and when I went over the third heaven, there I saw Joseph. Gabriel said (to me), 'This is Joseph; pay him your greetings.' So I greeted him and he returned the greetings to me and said, 'You are welcomed, o pious brother and pious Prophet.' Then Gabriel ascended with me to the fourth heaven and asked for its gate to be opened. It was asked, 'Who is it?' Gabriel answered, 'Gabriel' It was asked, 'Who is accompanying you?' Gabriel replied, 'Muhammad.' It was asked, 'Has he been called?' Gabriel

replied in the affirmative. Then it was said, 'He is welcomed. What an excellent visit his is!' The gate was opened, and when I went over the fourth heaven, there I saw Idris. Gabriel said (to me), 'This is Idris; pay him your

greetings.' So I greeted him and he returned the greetings to me and said, 'You are welcomed, o pious brother and pious Prophet.' Then Gabriel ascended with me to the fifth heaven and asked for its gate to be opened. It was asked, 'Who is it?' Gabriel answered, 'Gabriel' It was asked, 'Who is accompanying you?' Gabriel replied, 'Muhammad.' It was asked, 'Has he been called?' Gabriel replied in the affirmative. Then it was said, 'He is welcomed. What an excellent visit his is!' The gate was opened, and when I went over the fifth heaven, there I saw Harun (i.e. Aron) Gabriel said (to me), 'This is Aron; pay him your greetings.' So I greeted him and he returned the greetings to me and said, 'You are welcomed, o pious brother and pious Prophet.' Then Gabriel ascended with me to the sixth heaven and asked for its gate to be opened. It was asked, 'Who is it?' Gabriel replied, 'Gabriel' It was asked, 'Who is accompanying you?' Gabriel replied, 'Muhammad.' It was asked, 'Has he been called?' Gabriel replied in the affirmative. It was said, 'He is welcomed. What an excellent visit his is!' The gate was opened, and when I went (over the sixth heaven), there I saw Moses. Gabriel said (to me), 'This is Moses; pay him your greetings.' So I greeted him and he returned the greetings to me and said, 'You are welcomed, o pious brother and pious Prophet.' When I left him (i.e. Moses) he wept. Someone asked,'What

makes you weep?' Moses said, 'I weep because after me there has been sent (as

Prophet) a young man whose followers will enter Paradise in greater numbers than my followers.' Then Gabriel ascended with me to the seventh heaven and asked for its gate to be opened. It was asked, 'Who is it?' Gabriel replied, 'Gabriel' It was asked, 'Who is accompanying you?' Gabriel replied, 'Muhammad.' It was asked, 'Has he been called?' Gabriel replied in the affirmative. It was said, 'He is welcomed. What an excellent visit his is!' So when I went (over the seventh heaven), there I saw Abraham. Gabriel said (to me), 'This is your father; pay him your greetings.' So I greeted him and he returned the greetings to me and said, 'You are welcomed, o pious son and pious Prophet.' Then I was made to ascend to Sidrat-ul-Muntaha (i.e. the Lote Tree of the farthest limit). Behold! Its fruits were like the jars of Hajr (i.e. a place near Medina) and its leaves were as big as the ears of elephants. Gabriel said, 'This is the Lote Tree of the farthest limit.' Behold! There ran four rivers, two were hidden and two were

visible. I asked, 'What are these two kinds of rivers, O Gabriel?' He replied, 'As for the hidden rivers, they are two rivers in Paradise and the visible Sacred House) was shown to me and a container full of wine and another full of milk and a third full of honey were brought to me. I took the milk. Gabriel remarked, 'This is the Islamic religion which you and your followers are following.' Then the prayers were enjoined on me: They were fifty prayers a day. When I returned, I passed by Moses who asked (me), 'What have you been ordered to do?' I replied, 'I have been ordered to offer fifty prayers a day.' Moses said, 'Your followers cannot bear fifty prayers a day, and by Allah, I have tested people before you, and I have tried my level best with Bani Israil (in vain). Go back to your Lord and ask for reducing your followers' burden.' So I went back, and Allah reduced ten prayers for me. Then again I came to Moses, but he repeated the same as he had said before. Then again I went back to Allah and He reduced ten more prayers. When I came back to Moses he said the same, I went back and Allah and

He ordered me to observe ten prayers a day. When I came back to Moses, he

repeated the same advice, so I went back to Allah was ordered to observe five

prayers a day. When I came back to Moses, he said, 'What have you been ordered?' I replied, 'I have been ordered to observe five prayers a day.' He said, 'Your followers cannot bear five prayers a day,(NOTE 36) and no doubt, I have got an experience of the people before you, and I have tried my level best with Bani Israil, so go back to your Lord and ask for reducing your followers' burden.' I said, 'I have requested so much of my Lord that I feel ashamed, but I am satisfied now and surrender to Allah's order.' When I left, I head a voice saying, 'I have passed My Order and have reduced the burden of My Worshippers.'"
