Abu Bakr said: Allaah's Messenger, may my father be sacrificed for you, by Allaah, allow me to interpret it. Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) sail: Well, give its interpretation. Thereupon Abu Bakr said: The canopy signifies the canopy of Islam and that what it trickles out of it in the form of butter and honey is the Holy Qur'an and its sweetness and softness and what the people get hold of it in their palms implies major portion of the Qur'an or the small portion; and so far as the rope joining the sky with the earth is concerned, it is the Truth by which you stood (in the worldly life) and by which Allaah would raise you (to Heaven). Then the person after you would take hold of it and he would also climb up with the help of it. Then another person would take hold of it and climb up with the help of it. Then another person would take hold of it and it would be broken; then it would be rejoined for him and he would climb up with the help of it. Allaah's Messenger, may my father be taken as a ransom for you, tell me whether I have interpreted it currectly or I have made an error. Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) said: You have interpreted a part of it correctly and you have erred in interpreting a part of it. Thereupon he said: Allaah's Messenger, by Allaah, tell me that part where I have committed an error. Thereupon he said: Don't take oath.
