begining of creation

Narrated 'Imran bin Husain:

Some people of Bani Tamim came to the Prophet and he said (to them), "O Bani

Tamim! rejoice with glad tidings." They said, "You have given us glad

tidings, now give us something." On hearing that the color of his face

changed then the people of Yemen came to him and he said, "O people of

Yemen ! Accept the good tidings, as Bani Tamim has refused them." The

Yemenites said, "We accept them. Then the Prophet started taking about

the beginning of creation and about Allah's Throne. In the mean time a

man came saying, "O 'Imran! Your she-camel has run away!'' (I got up

and went away), but l wish I had not left that place (for I missed what

Allah's Apostle had said).


Narrated Imran bin Husain:

I went to the Prophet and tied my she-camel at the gate. The people of

Bani Tamim came to the Prophet who said "O Bani Tamim! Accept the good

tidings." They said twice, 'You have given us the good tidings, now

give us something" Then some Yemenites came to him and he said, "Accept

the good tidings, O people of Yemem, for Bani Tamim refused them."

They said, "We accept it, O Allah's Apostle! We have come to ask you

about this matter (i.e. the start of creations)." He said, "First of

all, there was nothing but Allah, and (then He created His Throne). His

throne was over the water, and He wrote everything in the Book (in the

Heaven) and created the Heavens and the Earth." Then a man shouted, "O

Ibn Husain! Your she-camel has gone away!" So, I went away and could

not see the she-camel because of the mirage. By Allah, I wished I had

left that she-camel (but not that gathering).

Narrated 'Umar:

One day the Prophet stood up amongst us for a long period and informed

us about the beginning of creation (and talked about everything in

detail) till he mentioned how the people of Paradise will enter their

places and the people of Hell will enter their places. Some remembered

what he had said, and some forgot it.


Narrated Salim's father:

The Prophet said, "Any person who takes a piece of land unjustly will sink down the seven earths on the Day of Resurrection."
