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).
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."
