Then there would be intervention between me and them. Abu Hazim said that Nu'man b. Abu 'Ayyash heard it and I narrated to them this hadith, and said: Is it this that you heard Sahl saying? He said: Yes, and I bear witness to the fact that I heard it from Abu Sa'id Khudri also, but he made this addition that he (the Prophet) would say: They are my followers, and it would be said to him: You do not know what they did after you and I will say to them: Woe to him who changes (his religion) after me.

Asma', daughter of Abu Bakr said: Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) said: I would be on the Cistern and so that I would be seeing those who would be coming to me from you, but some people would be detained (before reaching me). I would say: My Lord, they are my followers and belong to my Umma, and it would be said to me: Do you know what they did after you? By Allaah, they did not do good after you, and they turned back upon their heels.

Umm Salama, the wife of Allaah's Prophet (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam), said I used to hear from people making a mention of the Cistern, but I did not hear about it from Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam). One day while a girl was combing me I heard Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) say:" O people." I said to that girl: Keep away from me. She said: He (the Prophet) has addressed the men only and he has not invited the attention of the women. I said: I am amongst the people also (and have thus every right to listen to the things pertaining to religion). Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) said: I shall be your harbinger on the Cistern; therefore, be cautious lest one of you should come (to me) and may be driven away like a stray camel. I would ask the reasons, and it would be said to me: You don't know what innovations they made after you. And I would then also say: Be away.

I shall be your witness and, by Allaah, I perceive as if I am seeing with my own eyes my Cistern at this very state and I have been given the keys of the treasures of the earth or the keys of the earth and, by Allaah, I am not afraid concerning you that you would associate anything (with Allaah after me), but I am afraid that you would be vying with one another (for the possession of) the treasures of the earth.

I am not afraid that you would associate anything with Allaah after me, but I am afraid that you may be (allured) by the world and (vie) with one another (in possessing material wealth) and begin killing one another, and you would be destroyed as were destroyed those who had gone before you.
