CHAPTER: PERMISSION FOR INNOCENT SPORT ON 'ID DAYS  

No. 1938

'A'isha reported: Abu Bakr came to see me and I had two girls with me from among the girls of the Ansar and they were singing what the Ansar recited to one another at the Battle of Bu'ath. They were not, however, singing girls. Upon this Abu Bakr said: What I (the playing of) this wind instrument of Satan in the house of the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) and this too on 'Id day? Upon this the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) said: Abu Bakr, every people have a festival and it is our festival (so let them play on).

No. 1939

This hadith has been narrated by Hisham with the same chain of transmitters, but there the words are:" Two girls were playing upon a tambourine."

No. 1940

'A'isha reported that Abu Bakr came to her and there were with her two girls on Adha days who were singing and beating the tambourine and the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) had wrapped himself with his mantle. Abu Bakr scolded them. The Messenger of Allaah (may peace he upon him) uncovered (his face) and said: Abu Bakr, leave them alone for these are the days of 'Id. And 'A'isha said: I recapitulate to my mind the fact that once the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) screened me with his mantle and I saw the sports of the Abyssinians, and I was only a girl, and so you can well imagine how a girl of tender age is fond of watching the sport.

No. 1941

'A'isha reported: BY Allaah, I remember the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) standing on the door of my apartment screening me with his mantle enabling me to see the sport of the Abyssinians as they played with their daggers in the mosque of the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam). He (the Prophet) kept standing for my sake till I was satiated and then I went back; and thus you can well imagine how long a girl tender of age who is fond of sports (could have watched it).

No. 1942

'A'isha reported: The Messenger of Allaah (way sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) came (in my apartment) while there were two girls with me singing the song of the Battle of Bu'ath. He lay down on the bed and turned away his face. Then came Abu Bakr and he scolded me and said: Oh! this musical instrument of the devil in the house of the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam)! The Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) turned towards him and said: Leave them alone. And when he (the Prophet) became unattentive, I hinted them and they went out, and it was the day of 'Id and negroes were playing with shields and speare. (I do not remember) whether I asked the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) or whether he said to me if I desired to see (that sport). I said: Yes. I stood behind him with his face parallel to my face, and he said: O Banu Arfada, be busy (in your sports) till I was satiated. He said (to me): Is that enough? I said: Yes. Upon this he asked me to go.

No. 1943

'A'isha reported that some Abyssinians came and gave a demonstration of armed fight on the 'Id day in the mosque. The Prophet of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) invited me (to see that fight). I placed my head on his shoulder and began to see their sport till it was I who turned away from watching them.

No. 1944

This hadith has been narrated by Hisham with the same chain of transmitters but (the narrators) did not make mention of the mosque.

No. 1945

'A'isha said that she sent a message to the players (of this armed fight) saying: I like to see them (fighting). She further said: The Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) stood up and I stood at the door (behind him) and saw (this fight) between his ears and his shoulders they played in the mosque. 'Ata' (one of the narra- tors) said: Were they persians or Abyssinians? Ibn 'Atiq told me they were Abyssinians.

No. 1946

Abu Huraira reported: While the Abyssinians were busy playing with their arms in the presence of the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) 'Umar b. Khattab came there. He bent down to take up pebbles to throw at them (in order to make them go off). The Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) said to him: 'Umar, leave them alone.
