CHAPTER: THE SELLING OF THE CAMEL AND STIPULATION OF RIDING ON IT  

No. 3886

Jabir b. 'Abdullah (Allaah be pleased with them) reported that he was travelling on his camel which had grown jaded, and he decided to let it off. When Allaah's Prophet (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) met him and prayed for him and struck it, so it trotted as it had never trotted before. He said: Sell it to me for an 'uqaya. I said: No. He again said: Sell it to me. So I sold it to him for an 'uqaya, but made the stipulation that I should be allowed to ride back to my family. Then when I came to (my place) I took the camel to him and he paid me its price in ready money. I then went back and he sent: (someone) behind me (and as I came) he said: Do you see that I asked you to reduce price for buying your camel. Take your camel and your coins; these are yours.

No. 3888

Jabir b. 'Abdullah (Allaah be pleased with them) reported: I went on an expedition with Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam). He overtook me and I was on a water-carrying camel who had grown tired and did not walk (trot). He (the Prophet) said to me: What is the matter with your camel? I said: It is sick. He (the Prophet) stepped behind and drove it and prayed for it, and then it always moved ahead of other camels. He (then) said: How do you find your camel? I said: It is, by the grace of your prayer, all right. He said: Would you sell this (camel) to me? I felt shy (to say him," No" ) as we had no other camel for carrying water, but (later on) I said: Yes, and to I sold it to him on the condition that (I would be permitted) to ride it until I reached Madina. I said to him: Allaah's Messenger, I am newly married, so I asked his permission (to go ahead of the caravan). He permitted me, and I reached Medina well in advance of other people, until I reached my destination. There my maternal uncle met me and asked me about the camel, and I told him what I had done with regard to it. He reproved me in this connection. He (Jabir) said: When I asked his permission (to go ahead of the caravan) Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) inquired of me whether I had married a virgin or a non-virgin. I said to him: I have married a non-virgin. He said: Why did you not marry a virgin who would have played with you and you would have played with her? I said to him: Allaah's Messenger, my father died (or he fell as a martyr), and I have small sisters to (look after), so I did not like the idea that I should marry a woman who is like them and thus be not able to teach them manners and look after them properly. So I have married a non-virgin so that she should be able to look after them and teach them manners, When Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) came to Medina, I went to him in the morning with the camel. He paid me its price and returned that (the camel) to me.

Jabir reported: We went from Mecca to Medina with Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) when my camel fell ill, and the rest of the hadith is the same. (But it in also narrated in it: ) He (the Prophet) said to me: Sell your camel to me. I said: No, but it is yours. He said: No. (it can't be), but sell it to me. I said: No, but, Allaah's Messenger, it is yours. He said: No, it can't be, but sell it to me. I said: Then give me an 'uqaya of gold for I owe that to a person and then it would be yours. He (the Prophet) said: I take it (for an 'uqiya of gold) and you reach Medina on it. As I reached Medina, Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) said to Bilal: Give him an 'uqiya of gold and make some extra payment too. He (Jabir) said: He gave me an 'uqiya of gold and made an addition of a qirat. He (Jabir) said: The addition made by Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) was with me (as a sacred trust for belssing) and lay with me in a pocket until the people of Syria took it on the Day of Harra.

He constantly made addition (in prayers for me) and went on saying. May Allaah forgive you!

No. 3891

Jabir (Allaah be pleased with him) reported: My camel had grown tired as Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) came to me. He goaded it and it began to jump. After that I tried to restrain its rein so that I could listen to his (Prophet's) words, but I could not do that. Allaah's Prophet (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) met me and said: Sell it to me, and I sold it for five 'uqiyas. I said: On the condition that I may use it as a ride (for going back) to Medina. He (the Prophet) said: Well, you may use it as a ride up till Medina. When I came to Medina I handed over that to him and he made an addition of an uqiya (to that amount which had been agreed upon) and then presented that (camel) to me.
