cause her to die in her land.'' `Urwah said: "She did not die till she became blind. While she was walking in her land
(concerning which the dispute arose) she fell down into a pit and died.''
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].
In another narration of Muslim, Muhammad bin Zaid bin `Abdullah bin `Umar said that he had seen Arwa blind,
feeling for on the walls with her hand and saying: "
I am ruined by the curse of Sa`id.
'' Later she fell in a well in the
same disputed land and died.
Sa`id bin Zaid was an eminent Companion of the Prophet (PBUH) and had the honour of being one
from the group of Al-`Ashratul-Mubashsharuna bil-Jannah Marwan bin Al-Hakam (May Allah be pleased with him)
was governor of Al-Madinah during the caliphate of Mu`awiyah, and the incident quoted in this Hadith relates to
that particular period. After Mu`awiyah bin Yazid, he remained caliph for some months.
This Hadith brings into prominence the following points:
1. The distinction of Sa`id bin Zaid and the marvel which came about with the acceptance of his prayer by Allah.
2. One should always save oneself from the curse of the pious people because the punishment can occur in this very

Jabir bin `Abdullah (May Allah be pleased with them) said:
My father called me on the evening before (the
battle of) Uhud and said: "I perceive that I shall be among the first from among the Companions of the Prophet
(PBUH) to be martyred, and after him you are the dearest to me. I am under the burden of debt. Pay it and treat your
sisters well.'' Next morning he was among the first to be killed, so I buried him along with another in the same
grave. Thereafter, I did not like that I should leave him with another in the grave. So I dug up his corpse after six
months and he was in the same condition in which he was on the day when I buried him, except that there was a
scratch on his ear. Then I buried him in a separate grave.
This Hadith highlights the following five points:
1. The Companions' love for the Prophet (PBUH) exceeded everything else, even one's own life and children.
2. The Companions' ardent desire for martyrdom.
3. The sixth sense of Jabir's father that he would be honoured with martyrdom.
4. The miracle that his dead body remained intact and did not decompose even after the period of six months.
5. The justification to exhume a dead body, in case of need. This permission is subject to the condition that much
time has not passed since the burial of the deceased.

Anas (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:
Two Companions of the Prophet (PBUH) left his home in a
very dark night with something like lights in front of them; when they separated, each of them had one light in front
of him till they arrived home
Other narrations reported in Al-Bukhari say that the two men were Usaid bin Hudhair and `Abbad bin Bishr (May
Allah be pleased with them).
What was akin to light? Some people say it was their walking sticks which gave a shining effect in
darkness and showed them their way. Some say that it was the light of the Prophethood. Thus, it was a marvel of the
Companions and a miracle of the Prophet (PBUH).
