CHAPTER: PERTAINING TO THE MERITS OF MOSES (PEACE BE UPON HIM)  

No. 5849

Hammam b. Munabbih reported that Abu Huraira reported many ahadith from Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) and one, of them speaks that Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) is reported to have said: Banu Isra'il used to take bath (together) naked and thus saw private parts of one another, but Moses (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) used to take bath alone (in privacy), and they said: By Allaah, nothing prevents Moses to take bath along with us; but scrotal hernia. One day when he (Moses) was taking bath (alone) he placed his clothes upon a stone, but the stone began to move along with his clothes. Moses raced after it saying: My garment, stone; until (some of the people) of Banu Isra'il looked at the private parts of Moses, and they said: By Allaah, there is no trouble with Moses. The stone stopped after he (Moses) had been seen. He took hold of his garments and struck the stone. Abu Huraira said: I swear by Allaah that there were six or seven scars on the stone because of the striking of stone by Moses (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam).

No. 5850

Abu Huraira reported that Moses was a modest person. He was never seen naked and Banu Isra'iI said: (He was afraid to expose his private part) because he had been suffering from scrotal hernia. He (one day) took bath in water and placed his garments upon a stone. The stone began to move on quickly. He followed that and struck it with the help of a stone (saying): O stone, my garment; O stone, my garments, O stone; until it stopped near the big gathering of Isrii'll, and this verse was revealed (pertaining to the incident):" O you who believe, be not Iike those who maligned Moses, but Allaah cleared him of what they said, and he was worthy of regard with Allaah" (xxxiii. 69).

No. 5851

Abu Huraira reported that the Angel of Death was sent to Moses (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) to inform of his Lord's summons. When he came, he (Moses) boxed him and his eye was knocked out. He (the Angel of Death) came back to the Lord and said: You sent me to a servant. who did not want to die. Allaah restored his eye to its proper place (and revived his eyesight), and then said: Go back to him and tell him that if he wants life he must place his hand on the back of an ox, and he would be granted as many years of life as the number of hair covered by his hand. He (Moses) said: My Lord what would happen then He said: Then you must court death. He said: Let it be now. And he supplicated Allaah to bring him close to the sacred land. Thereupon Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) said: If I were there, I would have shown you his grave beside the road at the red mound.

No. 5852

Abu Huraira reported Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) having said that the Angel of Death came to Moses and said: Respond (to the call) of Allaah (i. e. be prepared for death). Moses (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) gave a blow at the eye of the Angel of Death and knocked it out. The Angel went back to Allaah (the Exalted) and said: You sent me to your servant who does not like to die and he knocked out my eye. Allaah restored his eye to its proper place (and revived his eyesight) and said: Go to My servant and say: Do you want life? And in case you want life, keep your hand on the body of the ox and you would live such number of years as the (number of) hair your hand covers. He (Moses) said: What, then? He said: Then you would die, whereupon he (Moses) said: Then why not now? (He then prayed): Allaah, cause me to die close to the sacred land. Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) said: Had I been near that place I would have shown his grave by the side of the path at the red mound. This hadith has been transmitted on the authority of Ma'mar.

No. 5853

Abu Huraira reported: While a Jew was selling goods, he was given something which he did not accept or he did not agree (to accept) that 'Abdul 'Azlz (one of the narrators) is doubtful about it. He (the Jew) said: By Allaah, Who chose Moses (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) among mankind. A person from the Ansar heard it and gave a blow at his face saying: (You have the audacity) to say: By Him Who chose Moses amongst mankind, whereas Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) is living amongst us. The Jew went to Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) and said: Abu'l-Qasim, I am a Dhimmi and (thus need your protection) by a covenant, and added: Such and such person has given a blow upon my face. Thereupon Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) said: Why did you give a blow on his face? He said: Allaah's Messenger, this man said: By Him Who chose Moses (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) amongst mankind, whereas you are living amongst us. Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) became angry and signs of anger could be seen on his face, and then said: Don't make distinction amongst the Prophets of Allaah. When the horn will be blown and whatever is in the heavens and the earth would swoon but he whom Allaah grants exception, then another horn will be blown and I would be the first amongst those who would recover and Moses (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) would be catching hold of the Throne and I do not know whether it is a compensation for that when he swooned on the Day of Tur or he would be resurrected before me and I do not say that anyone is more excellent than Yunus son of Matta (peace he upon him). This hadith has been narrated on the authority of Abu Salama with the same chain of transmitters.

Thereupon the Muslim lifted his hand and slapped at the face of the Jew. The Jew went to Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) and told him about his affair and the affair of the Muslim. Thereupon Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) laid: Don't make me superior to Moses for mankind will swoon and I would be the 'first to recover from it and Moses would be at that time seizing the side of the Throne and I do not know (whether) he would swoon and would recover before me or Allaah would make an exception for him.
