The Hadeeth of Jibreel

 


From 'Umar ibn al-Khattaab (radiyallaahu 'anhu) who said:Whilst we were sitting with Allaah's Messenger (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) one day when a man came to us whose clothes were extremely white and whose hair was extremely black.

No trace of his having travelled could be seen upon him and none of us knew him.

So he sat down with the Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam), and he put his two knees with his (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) two knees, and he put his two hands on his two (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) thighs.
"

He said: "
O Muhammad! Inform me about al-Islaam.
"

So Allaah's Messenger (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) said: "
Islaam is that you testify that none has the right to be worshipped except Allaah and that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allaah, that you establish the Prayer, that you give the Zakat and that you fast Ramadan and that you make Hajj to the House if you are able to get there.
"

He said: "
You have spoken the truth.
"

So we were surprised with him, asking him and (then) telling him that he had spoken the truth.

He said: "Then inform me about Eemaan.
"

The Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) said: "
Eemaan is that you truly believe in Allaah and His Angels and His Books and His Messengers and the Last Day and that you truly believe in the Pre-decree (Qadr), the good of it and the evil of it.
"

He said:
"You have spoken the truth. Then tell me about Ihsaan."

The Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) said: "
It is that you worship Allaah as if you are seeing Him and even though you do not see him, yet He certainly sees you.
"

He said: "
You have spoken the truth.
"

He said:
"Then tell me about the Last Hour."

The Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) said: "
The one who is questioned about it does not know any better than the one who is asking.
"

He said: "
Then inform me about its signs.
"

The Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) said: "
That the slave girl will give birth to her mistress and that you will see the bare-footed, naked and destitute shepherds of sheep competing to build high buildings.
"

Then he went off, so he (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) remained for some time and then,

He said to me: "
O 'Umar! Do you know who the questioner was?
"

I said: "
Allaah and His Messenger know best.
"

He said: "
This was Jibreel-he came to you to teach you your Religion."
