‏الصلاة (The Book of Prayer)
CHAPTER: THE PERMISSIBILITY OF MOVING TWO STEPS IN THE PRAYER  

No. 1111

Abu Hazim is reported on the authority of his father: Some people came to Sahl b. Sa'd and began to differ about the wood of which the (Prophet's pulpit was made. He (Sahl b. Sa'd) said: By Allaah, I know of which wood it is made and who made it, and the day when I saw the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) seated himself on it on the first day. I said to him: O Abu Abbas (kunyah of Sabl b. Sa'd), narrate to us (all these facts), He said: The Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) sent a person to a woman asking her to allow her slave, a carpenter, to work on woods (to prepare a pulpit) so that I should talk to the people (sitting on it). Abu Hazim said: He (Sahl b. Sa'd) pointed out the name of (that lady) that day. So he (the carpenter) made (a pulpit) with these three steps. Then the Messengerof Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) commanded it to be placed here (where it is lying now). It was fashioned out of the wood of al-Ghaba. And I saw the Messenger of Allaah (may peace he upon him) standing upon it and glorifying Allaah and the people also glorified Allaah after him, while he was on the pulpit. He then raised (his head from prostration) and stepped back (on his heels) till he prostrated himself at the base of pulpit, and then returned (to the former place and this movement of one or two steps continued) till the prayer was complete. He then turned towards the people and said: O people, I have done it so that you should follow me and learn (my mode of) prayer.

No. 1112

Abu Hazim reported: They (the people) came to Sahl b. Sa'd and they asked him of what thing the pulpit of the Prophet of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) was made, and the rest of the hadith is the same.
