They will swear by Allah to you (Muslims) when you return to them, that you may turn away from them. So turn
away from them. Surely, they are Rijsun [i.e., Najasun (impure) because of their evil deeds], and Hell is their
dwelling place - a recompense for that which they used to earn. They (the hypocrites) swear to you (Muslims) that
you may be pleased with them, but if you are pleased with them, certainly Allah is not pleased with the people who
are Al-Fa'siqun (rebellious, disobedient to Allah)".
Ka`b further added: "The matter of the three of us remained pending for decision apart from the case of those who
had made excuses on oath before Messenger of Allah (PBUH) and he accepted those, took fresh oaths of allegiance
from them and supplicated for their forgiveness. The Prophet (PBUH) kept our matter pending till Allah decided it.
The three whose matter was deferred have been shown mercy.
The reference here is not to our staying back from the
expedition but to his delaying our matter and keeping it pending beyond the matter of those who made their excuses
on oath which he accepted".
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim]
Another version adds: "Messenger of Allah (PBUH) set out for Tabuk on Thursday. He used to prefer to set out on
journey on Thursday.'' Another version says: "Messenger of Allah (PBUH) used to come back from a journey in the
early forenoon and went straight to the mosque where he would perform two Rak`ah prayer. Afterwards he would
seat himself there".
This Hadith contains many aspects of warnings and advices, some of which are given below:
1. A Muslim should always speak the truth even if he has to face troubles and turmoil for it because the Pleasure of
Allah lies in truth.
2. One must avoid at all costs the attitude of hypocrites because eventually one is ruined by it.
3. In spite of hardship and stringency, one must take part in Jihad.
4. For the admonition and exhortation of others, it gives justification for the economic boycott of even sincere
Muslims who adopt wrong methods.
5. One must face with forbearance the difficulties which come in the way of Deen.
6. It is not praiseworthy that one gives in charity all the property he has. One must keep what is needed for the
lawful needs.
7. It is lawful to give something by way of gift and reward to a person who congratulates in the events of happiness.
8.The ability to seek pardon is a gift from Allah for which one must express gratitude to Him.
9.Any promise that one makes must be kept, etc. etc.

Imran bin Al-Husain Al-Khuza`i (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: A woman from the tribe Juhainah
came to Messenger of Allah (PBUH) while she was pregnant from (Zina) adultery and said to him: "O Messenger of
Allah! I have committed an offense liable to Hadd (prescribed punishment), so exact the execution of the sentence.''
Messenger of Allah (PBUH) called her guardian and said to him,
"Treat her kindly. Bring her to me after the
delivery of the child.''
That man complied with the orders. At last the Prophet (PBUH) commanded to carry out the
sentence. Her clothes were secured around her and she was stoned to death. The Prophet (PBUH) led her funeral
prayers. `Umar submitted: "O Messenger of Allah! She committed Zina and you have performed funeral prayer for
her?'' He replied,
"Verily, she made repentance which would suffice for seventy of the people of Al-Madinah if it is
divided among them. Can there be any higher degree of repentance than that she sacrificed her life voluntarily to
win the Pleasure of Allah, the Exalted?''.
This Hadith highlights the following five points:
1. It confirms the validity of the punishment of Rajm for the adulterer, that is to say that he should be stoned to
2. The merit of sincere pardon.
3.The description of fear of Allah as well as of accountability on the Day of Resurrection by the Prophet's
Companions, and their preference for punishment of sins in this world rather than in the Hereafter.
4. It is permissible to perform the funeral prayer of one who has been guilty of major sins, provided he has not been
taking them as lawful because in that case there is danger of disbelief..
5. A pregnant woman cannot be punished with Rajm until she gives birth to the child and the period specified for
suckling the baby is completed.
