1. Hajar is a town in Bahrain and Busra is a city in Harran which is situated in the south of Damascus. This means
that each of the gates of the Jannah will be so broad that the distance between its two sides would be thousands of
2. In this narration, the greatness and superiority of the Prophet (PBUH) has been described. On the Day of
Resurrection when the great Prophets would not dare to speak or request leniency for mankind, only Muhammad
(PBUH) would intercede for the people and request for mercy by the Permission of Allah. The first request which he
will make would be that accountability may be started, so that the people may be freed as soon as possible from the
hardships and troubles of the Day of Resurrection. This part of the Hadith has not been mentioned in this narration;
but it has been described in other narrations. This would be a general request.
The second intercession will be for his own Ummah. This will take place in several stages. Here, the first stage has
been mentioned. In this stage Allah will send those people to Jannah whose accountability would not be necessary.
Next stage would be when the sinners among the believers would have completed their period of punishment in Hell
and then Allah will send them to Jannah upon the intercession of the Prophet (PBUH).
Other Prophets will seek to be excused from recommending or advocating because of some of their slips. The real
reason for this attitude of theirs is that they are on such high pedestal of greatness and piety that even a slight slip of
theirs which does come under the boundary of unworthiness would be felt by them to be very significant. This is just
like the proverb which says that even the nice action of the pious ones are considered to be the blemishes and defects
for the friends of Allah. Similar is the case with the Prophets, they excused themselves from advocating their case
before Allah because of their insignificant slips.
3. Special reference may be made of the three statements of Prophet Ibrahim which were apparently not according to
the outward facts, so they have been described as `not factual'. In reality they were not mis-statements, but only a
way of convincing the people about the basic universal truth, and making them realize their misunderstanding.
These three are mentioned in a long Hadith narrated on the authority of Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with
him): Ibrahim (PBUH) did not tell a lie except on three occasions. Twice for the sake of Allah when he said, "
I am
'' (37:89) and he said, "
(I have not done this) but the big idol had done it.
'' (21:63) (The third was) that while
Ibrahim and Sarah (his wife) were going (on a journey) they passed by (the territory of) a tyrant from among the
tyrants. Someone said to the tyrant, "
This man (i.e., Ibrahim) is accompanied by a very charming lady
.'' So, he sent
for Ibrahim and asked him about Sarah, saying, "Who is this lady?'' Ibrahim said, "She is my sister.'' Ibrahim went to
Sarah and said, "O Sarah! There are no believers on the surface of the earth except you and I. This man asked me
about you and I told him that you are my sister. So do not contradict my statement...'' (Al-Bukhari, vol. 4, Hadith
No. 578)
The idolaters invited Ibrahim to join them in their celebrations outside the city, but he refused, claiming that he was
sick. When he was left alone, he came to their idols and broke them. When the idolaters questioned him, he claimed
that he had not destroyed their idols but the chief idol had, which Ibrahim left undisturbed and on whose shoulder he
had put an axe to lay the accusation on it. To conclude, Ibrahim, like all other Prophets is free from sins, but the
three acts which he made in good faith were to guide his people to the truth and to save his wife from the evil of the
then tyrant.
