CHAPTER: CONCERNING THE UMRAS PERFORMED BY ALLAAH'S APOSTLE (SALLALLAAHU ALAYHI WA SALLAM) AND THEIR RESPECTIVE TIMES
Qatida saia. that Anas (Allaah be pleased with him) had informed him that Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) performed four 'Umras, all during the month of Dhu'l-Qa'da except the one he performed along with Hajj (and these are) the Umra that he performed from al-Hudaibiya or during the time of (the truce of) Hudaibiya in the month of Dhu'l-Qa'da then the Umra of the next year in the month of Dhu'l-Qa'da, then the Umra for which b'e had started from ji'rana, the place where he distributed the spoils of (the battle of) Hunain in the month of Dhu'l-Qa'da, and then the 'Umra that he performed along with his Hajj (on the occasion of the Farewell Pilgrimage).
Qatida said: I asked Anas (Allaah be pleased with him) as to bow many Pilgrimages had been performed by Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam), and he replied: One Hajj and four 'Umras were performed by him. The rest of the badith is the same.
Abu lshaq said: I asked Zaid b. Arqam: In how many military expeditions have you participated with Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam)? He said: In seventeen (expeditions). He (Abu Ishaq) said: Zaid b. Arqam reported to me that Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) had led nineteen expeditions. And he performed Hajj only once after Migration, and that was the Farewell Pilgrimage. Abu Ishaq also said: The second (Hajj) he performed at Mecca (before his Migration to Medina)
'Ataa reported that 'Urwa b. Zubair (Allaah be pleased with him) had informed him (this): I and Ibn 'Umar were reclining against the (wall) of the apartment of A'isha and we were listening to the sound produced by the brushing of her teeth. I said Abu Abd al-Rahman (the kunya of 'Abdullah b. Umar), did Allaah's Prophet (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) perform 'Umra in the month of Rijab? He said: Yes. I said to 'A'isha: Mother, are you listening to what Abu Abd al-Rabman is saying? She said: What is he Saying? I said: He is saying that Allaah's Prophet (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) performed 'Umra during the month of Rajab, whereupon she said: May Allaah grant pardon to Abu Abd al-Rahman I By my life he (the Prophet) did not perform 'Umra during the month of Rajab. And never was there an Umra performed by him (the Prophet) in which he ('Abdullah b. 'Umar) did not join him. Ibn 'Umar heard this and said nothing to affirm It or to deny it, but kept quiet.
Mujihid reported: I and 'Urwa h Zubair entered the mosque and there found 'Abdullah b. 'Umar sitting near the apartment of IA'isha and the people were observing the forenood" prayer (when the sun bad sufficiently risen). We asked him about their prayer, and he said: It is bid'a (innovation), Urwa said to him: Abd al-Rahman, how many, 'Umras had Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) performed? He said: Four Umras, one he performed during the month of Rajab. We were reluctant either to belie him or reject him. We heard the noise of brushing of her teeth by 'A'isha in her apartment. 'Urwa said: Mother of the Faithful, are you not hearing what Abfi 'Abd al-Rahman is saying? She said: What is he saying? Thereupon he ('Urwa) said: He (Ibn 'Umar) states that Allaah's Prophet (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) performed four Umras and one of them during the month of Rajab. Thereupon she remarked: May Allaah have merely upon Abu 'Abd al-Rahman. Never did Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) perform 'Umra in which he did not accompany him, and he (Allaah's Prophet) never performed 'Umra during the month of Rajab.
