Hadith # 2
Also on the authority of
Omar, who said :
One day while we were
sitting with the messenger of
Allah there appeared before
us a man whose clothes were
exceedingly white and whose
hair was exceedingly black;
no signs of journeying were
to be seen on him and none
of us knew him. He walked up
and sat down by the prophet.
Resting his knees against his
and placing the palms of his
hands on his thighs, he
said:"O Muhammed, tell me
about Islam". The messenger
of Allah said: "Islam is to
testify that there is no god
but Allah and Muhammed is
the messenger of Allah, to
perform the prayers, to pay
the zakat, to fast in
Ramadhan, and to make the
pilgrimage to the House if
you are able to do so." He
said:"You have spoken
rightly", and we were
amazed at him asking him
and saying that he had
spoken rightly. He said:
"Then tell me about eman."He
said:"It is to believe in Allah,
His angels, His books, His
messengers, and the Last
Day, and to believe in divine
destiny, both the good and
the evil thereof." He
said:"You have spoken
rightly". He said: " Then tell
me about ehsan." He said: "It
is to worship Allah as though
you are seeing Him, and
while you see Him not yet
truly He sees you". He said:
"Then tell me about the
Hour". He said: "The one
questioned about it knows no
better than the questioner."
He said: "Then tell me about
its signs." He said: "That the
slave-girl will give birth to
her mistress and that you
will see the barefooted,
naked, destitute herdsman
competing in constructing
lofty buildings." Then he took
himself off and I stayed for a
time. Then he said: "O Omar,
do you know who the
questioner was?" I said:
"Allah and His messenger
know best". He said: "He was
Jebreel (Gabriel), who came
to you to teach you your
