Bismillah.

Hadith Rasool (saws) :: I was blessed with six things.....

Abu Huraira reported that the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: I have been given superiority over the other prophets in six respects: I have been given words which are concise but comprehensive in meaning; I have been helped by terror (in the hearts of enemies): spoils have been made lawful to me: the earth has been made for me clean and a place of worship; I have been sent to all mankind and the line of prophets is closed with me. [Sahih Muslim, Book 4, Hadith #1062]

1. MUHAMMAD’S ABILITY TO SPEAK w/ ISLAMIC KNOWLEDGE

Let us explain these 6 things 1 by 1

-Juwami Al Kalim - means that the prophet
-was able to use a short sentence with a vast meaning.

Narrated Ka'b ibn Malik: When the Prophet (SAW) intended to go on an expedition, he always pretended to be going somewhere else, and he would say: "War is deception". [Abu Dawud 2629, Tirmidhi 1681, Ahmed 14312]

- the prophet had amazing ability to express himself
- the prophet who came close to the prophet (saws)
- with his ability to speak was Dawud(AS).
- the animals used to gather around him to listen to his psalms. (Dawud)
- the animals in the sea were also listening to the prophet Yunus
- when he was making dhikr in the belly of the whale.
- the animals love to hear the dua/dhikr of Allah

There is no doubt that it is a great barakah ( blessing ) from Allah.
- his being able to speak well
- every barakah is a double edged sword.
- you can use the blessing for good or for bad.
- the barakah of Islamic Knowledge:
- can be used to teach the people Authentic Tauheed.
- or used to cement the thrones of the apostate leaders.
- Even the two angels said:

They followed what the Shayatin (devils) gave out (falsely of the magic) in the lifetime of Sulaiman (Solomon). Sulaiman did not disbelieve, but the Shayatin (devils) disbelieved, teaching men magic and such things that came down at Babylon to the two angels, Harût and Marût, but neither of these two (angels) taught anyone (such things) till they had said We are only for trial, so disbelieve not (by learning this magic from us)." (Al-Baqarah 2:102)

- so, barakah is a double edged sword.
- the amazing ability to speak:
- con artists can have this ability also.
- Look at Louis Farrakhan: he uses his ability to speak
- to take a lot of people with him to the hell-fire.
- the one whom they claim was god: was a dope-peddler,
- he was convicted and sentenced to prison.

i. he was white: yet you (NOI) say the white man is a devil.
ii. how can God get arrested and fingerprinted!
iii. 3 he said that the white man was created in a science lab!.

Allah said: (Al-Hajj 22:73)

O mankind! A similitude has been coined, so listen to it (carefully): Verily! Those on whom you call besides Allah, cannot create (even) a fly, even though they combine together for the purpose. And if the fly snatched away a thing from them, they would have no power to release it from the fly. So weak are (both) the seeker and the sought. (Al-Hajj 22:73)


- so if they cannot create a house fly: how can a mad scientist
- create the white man in a lab!
- what about the white Muslims?
- White Muslims make fierce fighters.
- The white kaafir is a devil: but the black kaafir is a devil also.
- many of you are happy if a black man becomes president of the U.N., U.S.
- so this person has amazing ability to speak
- and he is taking people to the hell-fire.
- he claims to love black people, yet he is taking them to the hell-fire.

Umm Salama reported Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: You bring to me, for (judgment) your disputes, some of you perhaps being more eloquent in their plea than others, so I give judgment on their behalf according to what I hear from them. (Bear in mind, in my judgment) if I slice off anything for him from the right of his brother, he should not accept that, for I sliced off for him a portion from the Hell. Muslim Book 018, Number 4247

- when the Sahabahs heard this hadith:
- they cried and said they did not want the right
- they prefer to give it to their Muslim brother.

On that Allah's Apostle said. ‘Some eloquent speech is as effective as magic.' (Sahih Al-Bukhari, Volume 7, Book 71, Number 662)

-a man may be speaking rubbish: he is able to express in such a way
-that you follow him like a lamb to the laughter.

O mankind! A similitude has been coined, so listen to it (carefully): Verily! Those on whom you call besides Allah, cannot create (even) a fly, even though they combine together for the purpose. And if the fly snatched away a thing from them, they would have no power to release it from the fly. So weak are (both) the seeker and the sought. (Al-Hajj 22:73)

-worst con-artist is not the man who cons you out of million
-the worst con artist is the one who cons you in religion.
-some who are blessed with amazing ability
-to speak use their ability to con others
-the Christian preachers: like Jimmy Swagart
-fooled the people., collecting their money.

And who does more wrong than the one who invents a lie against Allah, while he is being invited to Islam? And Allah guides not the people who are Zalimûn (polytheists, wrong-doers and disbelievers) folk. (As-Saff 61:7)

When Ahmad Deedat
(RahimuAllah) debated Jimmy Swagart.
- Jimmy Swagart was trying to mock Allah’s Deen.
- talking of polygamy:
- yet he was caught with prostitutes on many occasions.
- his own followers wouldn't even spit on him now. - he was shamed!
- you think you can make a mockery of Allah's Deen?
- look at you now!.
- they cry and get emotional: and con the people out of millions - in US, the secretary of another preacher: Jessica of Jim Baker
- he paid her to keep quiet about their affair
- she took the money then went to the press, so she got paid twice!.

- You don't want to get conned by the con artist in deen,
- don't expect Allah to let you off
- Allah gave you aql ( intellect ) to think with.
- The Sufi masters are con-artists.
- they charge the people money.
- they can lock themselves in a room with girls
- claiming that they are teaching Quran.
- There are two types of con-artists:
- the one who robs you of your life savings.
- and the one who cons you in regards to the here-after.

Abu Dhar said, "I was with the Prophet (SAW) one day and I heard him saying: "There is something I fear for my Ummah than the Dajjal." It was then that I became afraid, so I said: " Oh Rasool Allah! Which thing is that?" He (SAW) said; "Misguided and astray scholars." Recorded in Musnad Imam Ahmad (no.21,334 and no.21,335).

When those who were followed, disown (declare themselves innocent of) those who followed (them), and they see the torment, then all their relations will be cut off from them. (Al-Baqarah 2:166)


- Allah will dump them together in the hell-fire!
- these wicked scholars will renounce their followers!
- saying they didn't pass any dodgy fatawa!

Rasullullah (SAW) said: “Exert yourself in increasing the tawaf of this (Sacred House) before a barrier is placed before you and it. For by Him in whose hands lies my life, verily I can see a man from Africa, bald-headed, the inner part of his foot is flat, bow legged and flat footed, sitting on the Ka’bah and demolishing it brick by brick.” ( Sunan Tirmizi, Nasai)

Shaikh in Kenya:
-slept on the floor that was hot enough to fry an egg!

Shaikh in prison:
- they saw shaikh as a traitor, because he was black
- he should be like them
- they are the ones in Somalia killing the Muslims & raping Muslim Women
- Black kaafirs are devils just like white kaafirs.
- if you con a Muslim in the dunya:
- you will have to take away from him his sins
- on Yawm al Qiyamah.

2. TERROR WAS CAST IN THE HEART OF UNBELIEVERS TO MAKE MUHAMMAD’S DAWAH EASIER

We shall cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve, because they joined others in worship with Allah, for which He had sent no authority; their abode will be the Fire and how evil is the abode of the Zalimûn (polytheists and wrong¬doers). (Aali Imran 3:151)

And those of the people of the Scripture who backed them (the disbelievers) Allah brought them down from their forts and cast terror into their hearts, (so that) a group (of them) you killed, and a group (of them) you made captives. (Al-Ahzab 33:26)


- So, here Allah mentioned terror in the Quran
- the Jews of Madinah took sides with the kaafirs of Quraysh
- to destroy the Islamic State of Madinah.
- but their plot went down, and didn't materialize.

The tafseer of the ayah is: The Prophet (saws)
- killed the men and took the women and children as captives
- Allah said He Cast Terror in their hearts.

Allah brought them down from their forts and cast terror into their hearts, (so that) a group (of them) you killed, and a group (of them) you made captives. (Al-Ahzab 33:26)

One of the special gifts
given to Muhammad is terror.
- the gifts here are given to the Ummah of Muhammad.
- the last 2 gifts are specific to Muhammad.
- The kuffaar armies are killing themselves!
- because they are terrified of facing the mujahideen
- the terror that Allah Mentioned in Quran is for the mujahideen also

More U.S. Soldiers Killed Themselves Than Died in Combat :
http://www.good.is/post/more-us-soldiers-killed-themselves-than-died-in-combat-in-2010/

So, when you meet (in fight Jihad in Allah's Cause), those who disbelieve smite at their necks (Muhammad 47:4)

We shall cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve, because they joined others in worship with Allah, for which He had sent no authority; their abode will be the Fire and how evil is the abode of the Zalimûn (polytheists and wrong¬doers). (Aali Imran 3:151)


- you can't use the modern technology of today to abrogate the Quran:
- i.e we have AK47'S now. Their necks still have to be smote.

IF YOU DON'T FEAR ALLAH: NO ONE WILL FEAR YOU

SENATE APPROVES BILL THAT LEGALIZES SODOMY AND BESTIALITY IN U.S. MILITARY http://www.kavkazcenter.com/eng/content/2011/12/09/15488.shtml

- the kufaar allow gay sex and animal sex in their army
- they are finished and their morale is low

We shall cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve, because they joined others in worship with Allah, for which He had sent no authority; their abode will be the Fire and how evil is the abode of the Zalimûn (polytheists and wrong¬doers). (Aali Imran 3:151)

- they cannot stand up to the mujahideen:
- they will tremble like leaves.
- this is one of the six gifts to Muhammad: and the Ummah of Muhammad.
- this is a promise of Allah.
- this terror is for the ummah of Muhammad.
- they run away to other countries to seek political asylum also
- this is deja vu it happened before:
- the U.S. Army ran away to Canada to seek asylum.
- they couldn't survive against the communists who have no Deen.

We shall cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve, because they joined others in worship with Allah, for which He had sent no authority; their abode will be the Fire and how evil is the abode of the Zalimûn (polytheists and wrong¬doers). (Aali Imran 3:151)

- how do they expect they can survive against the mujahideen (Muslims)
- Whenever you want to fight the kuffaar you don't have to tell them you're coming.

Narrated By Ibn Aun: I wrote a letter to Nafi and Nafi wrote in reply to my letter that the Prophet had suddenly attacked Bani Mustaliq without warning while they were heedless and their cattle were being watered at the places of water. Their fighting men were killed and their women and children were taken as captives; the Prophet got Juwairiya on that day. Nafi said that Ibn 'Umar had told him the above narration and that Ibn 'Umar was in that army. [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 3, Book 46, Hadith #717]

- the Prophet (sala Allahu alayhi wasalam) attacked Banu Mustaliq
- when they were least expecting it.
- the best defence is offence.
- this is the battle where Aisha got lost.

3. MUHAMMAD WAS GIVEN THE SPOILS OF WAR [booty]
Aisha was there on this raid.

- the prophet never took young men on raids under 15
- so he would not have taken Aisha on this raid.
- the man who narrated the hadith of Aisha being 9 was senile
- Abu Sufyan told them to leave: not to fight.
- Abu Jahl wanted to fight.
- they went to fight the Muslims:
- and were dispatched to the hell-fire!

Narrates by Ibn Omar: "the Prophet said: "I was sent by the sword proceeding the judgment day and my livelihood is in the shadow of my spear and humiliation and submission are on those who disobey me" [Musnad Imam Ahmed (Vol. 2, p. 50)]

- the Prophet had 9 wives:
- where do you think he got the money to feed 9 wives?
- he did 27 battles in his life time!
- the Battle of Badr started because the Prophet sent his Sahabahs
- to seize the caravan
- of Abu Sufyan - the great caravan.
- as a compensation for what the kufaar did when the Sahabahs made migration:
- they had to leave their wealth behind.
- they stole their wealth.
- Aisha migrated at age 17: she married a year and half later.

Ibn Umar (RA) narrated: I was presented before Allah’s Messenger (SAW) for the army when I was fourteen years old. But, he did not enlist me. Then, the next year I was presented to him for the army being fifteen years and he took me. Nafi’ said: I narrated this hadith to Umar ibn Abdul Aziz and he said, “The limit between a minor and a major (is this).” Then he wrote (to his officers) that those who attain the age of fifteen may be given share in spoils of war. [Bukhari 2664, Muslim 1868, Tirmidhi 1717]

Allah said: He Is The Best Of Planners: 3:54

And they (disbelievers) plotted [to kill 'Iesa (Jesus)], and Allah planned too. And Allah is the Best of the planners. (Aali Imran 3:54)

- you bring your singing girls and your 20 extra camels
- claiming you will have a party when you defeat the Muslims!
- look what happened to them:
- they were dispatched to the hell-fire like dogs.
- the shaytan became the un-disputed leader of the Quraysh.

And (remember) when Shaitan (Satan) made their (evil) deeds seem fair to them and said, "No one of mankind can overcome you this Day (of the battle of Badr) and verily, I am your neighbour (for each and every help)." But when the two forces came in sight of each other, he ran away and said "Verily, I have nothing to do with you. Verily! I see what you see not. Verily! I fear Allah for Allah is Severe in punishment." (Al-Anfal 8:48)

The shaytan:
saw the Angels and ran away
- the shaytan washed his hands of Quraysh.
- the shaytan did the same thing to Bush: "Invade Iraq and Afghanistan"
- they lose either way.

There is going to be a blood bath in Iraq between the Shia and Sunnis
- Gulf countries will support the Sunnis
- The Shias in Iran will support the Shia
- the hadith says: there will be two armies fighting over the gold ( oil in Iraq )

Narrated By Abu Huraira: Allah's Apostle said, "Soon the river "Euphrates" will disclose the treasure (the mountain) of gold, so whoever will be present at that time should not take anything of it." Al-A'raj narrated from Abii Huraira that the Prophet said the same but he said, "It (Euphrates) will uncover a mountain of gold (under it)." [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 9, Book 88, Hadith #235]
- for you to be suffering poverty: - you cant get married because you are poor.
- you cant make hajj/hijrah
- the Sahabahs used to tie stones on their bellies BEFORE Jihad.
- After they became so rich
- Harun Arrasheed conquered so many countries:
- he used to see rain cloud and say
- " fall where ever you want to fall: where-ever you fall,
- your harvest will come right here in my palace"!
- he conquered many territories.
- when you do Jihad only a few hundreds die.
- but when you don't do jihad you are killed in the millions.
- he used to do jihad one year and the next year hajj:
- he did that until he died
- so the booty was made halal for the ummah of Muhammad.
- so for you to be in poverty: means you have given up jihad

4. THE WORLD WAS GIVEN TO MUHAMMAD AS A MASJID
- The world was made as a masjid
- you can pray on plane/coach/bus
- you are allowed to pray sitting on the seat
- you are allowed to pray sitting in your car
- Allah said: He wants for you ease and comfort: 2:185
- you can pray anywhere you are in the world

Allah intends for you ease, and He does not want to make things difficult for you. (He wants that you) must complete the same number (of days), and that you must magnify Allah [i.e. to say Takbir (Allahu-Akbar; Allah is the Most Great) on seeing the crescent of the months of Ramadan and Shawwal] for having guided you so that you may be grateful to Him. (Al-Baqarah 2:185)

Taha. (Ta-Ha 20:1)

We have not sent down the Qur'an unto you (O Muhammad SAW) to cause you distress, (Ta-Ha 20:2)

But only as a Reminder to those who fear (Allah). (Ta-Ha 20:3)


- The whole world was made a masjid for you:
- As long as we avoid the six haraam places.

Narrated By 'Aisha: Whenever Allah's Apostle was given the choice of one of two matters, he would choose the easier of the two, as long as it was not sinful to do so, but if it was sinful to do so, he would not approach it.[Sahi Bukhari, Vol 4, Book 56, Hadith #760]

THE 6 HARAAM PLACES TO PRAY
1 THE ROAD / STREET
2 TOILET
3 GRAVEYARD
4 WHERE ANIMALS ARE TIED UP
5 WHERE GARBAGE IS DUMPED
6 ON TOP OF THE KAB’A

It is haraam to pray in those six places!

- if you see a dream where you pray on top of the Kabaa,
- you have lost your faith;
- because you have to face the kaaba
- we perform Tayammum

O you who believe! Approach not As¬Salat (the prayer) when you are in a drunken state until you know (the meaning) of what you utter, nor when you are in a state of Janabah, (i.e. in a state of sexual impurity and have not yet taken a bath) except when traveling on the road (without enough water, or just passing through a mosque), till you wash your whole body. And if you are ill, or on a journey, or one of you comes after answering the call of nature, or you have been in contact with women (by sexual relations) and you find no water, perform Tayammum with clean earth and rub therewith your faces and hands (Tayammum). Truly, Allah is Ever Oft¬ Pardoning, Oft¬Forgiving. (An-Nisa 4:43)

O you who believe! When you intend to offer As-Salat (the prayer), wash your faces and your hands (forearms) up to the elbows, rub (by passing wet hands over) your heads, and (wash) your feet up to ankles. If you are in a state of Janabah (i.e. had a sexual discharge), purify yourself (bathe your whole body). But if you are ill or on a journey or any of you comes from answering the call of nature, or you have been in contact with women (i.e. sexual intercourse) and you find no water, then perform Tayammum with clean earth and rub therewith your faces and hands Allah does not want to place you in difficulty, but He wants to purify you, and to complete His Favour on you that you may be thankful. (Al-Ma'idah 5:6)

WHAT ARE THE CONDITIONS FOR TAYAMMUM.
1 intention
2 be a Muslim
3 sanity : there is no Tayammum for the mad-man.
4 absence of water
5 pure soil or sand to perform the Tayammum

-- the Tayammum is invalid as soon as water is available

"We were on a journey and one of us got injured. Later, he had a wet dream. He asked his companions, 'Can I perform Tayammum?' They said, 'No, not if you have water.' He performed ghusl and (as a result of that) died. When they came to the Messenger of Allah (saws), they informed him of what had happened. He said, 'They killed him, may Allah kill them. Do you not ask if you do not know? The rescue of the ignorant person is the question. He could have performed Tayammum and dropped water on his wound or wrapped it with something and wipe over the wrapping, and wash the rest of his body." [This is related by Abu Dawud, Ibn Majah, ad-Daraqutni and Ibn as-Sakin, who said it is Sahih]

- they killed him with a dodgy fatwa / a false fatwa
- he should have made Tayammum

HOW TO PERFORM TAYAMMUM
1 you obtain clean earth or sand
2 you make your intention
-- there is no act of ibadah without the intention.
3 you say bismillah
4 you rub your face after striking the earth: once
5 you rub your hands

- - (after striking the earth a second time)
- those who say hands first have weak fiqh.

The Hanbalis begin with face first:
- as Allah said in the Quran.

O you who believe! When you intend to offer As-Salat (the prayer), wash your faces and your hands (forearms) up to the elbows, rub (by passing wet hands over) your heads, and (wash) your feet up to ankles. (Al-Ma'idah 5:6)

5. MUHAMMAD WAS SENT AS A PROPHET TO THE WHOLE WORLD
(MAN AND JINN)
- Muhammad was sent to the whole world
- Two prophets were on earth at the same time.

O you who believe! When you intend to offer As-Salat (the prayer), wash your faces and your hands (forearms) up to the elbows, rub (by passing wet hands over) your heads, and (wash) your feet up to ankles. (Al-Ma'idah 5:6)

And verily, We have sent among every Ummah (community, nation) a Messenger (proclaiming): "Worship Allah (Alone), and avoid (or keep away from) Taghoot (all false deities, etc. i.e. do not worship Taghoot besides Allah)." )." Then of them were some whom Allah guided and of them were some upon whom the straying was justified. So travel through the land and see what was the end of those who denied (the truth). (An-Nahl 16:36)

And We have sent you (O Muhammad SAW) not but as a mercy for the 'Alamin (mankind, jinns and all that exists). (Al-Anbiya 21:107)

Muhammad was sent to 'Alamin: the whole world

- man and jinn
- don't entertain the idea that Muhammad was sent just to man.
- no, he was sent to man and jinn

Say (O Muhammad SAW): "It has been revealed to me that a group (from three to ten in number) of jinns[] listened (to this Qur'ân). They said: 'Verily! We have heard a wonderful Recital (this Qur'ân)! (Al-Jinn 72:1)

Surah Jinn
is the evidence that he was sent to man and jinn
- some jinn came from Iraq: - the prophet recited from Surah Rahman
- the prophet recited from Surah Rahman to the jinn
- they asked him many questions about halal and haraam
- they asked him about their food

Dawud reported from 'Amir who said: I asked 'Alqama if Ibn Mas'ud was present with the Messenger of Allah (SAW) on the night of the Jinn (the night when the Holy Prophet met them). He (Ibn Mas'uad) said: No, but we were in the company of the Messenger of Allah (SAW) one night and we missed him. We searched for him in the valleys and the hills and said. He has either been taken away (by jinn) or has been secretly killed. He (the narrator) said. We spent the worst night which people could ever spend. When it was dawn we saw him coming from the side of Hiri'. He (the narrator) reported. We said: Messenger of Allah, we missed you and searched for you, but we could not find you and we spent the worst night which people could ever spend. He (the Holy Prophet) said: There came to me an inviter on behalf of the Jinn and I went along with him and recited to them the Qur'an. He (the narrator) said: He then went along with us and showed us their traces and traces of their embers. They (the Jinn) asked him (the Holy Prophet) about their provision and he said: Every bone on which the name of Allah is recited is your provision. The time it will fall in your hand it would be covered with flesh, and the dung of (the camels) is fodder for your animals. The Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: Don't perform istinja with these (things) for these are the food of your brothers (Jinn). [Sahih Muslim, Book 4, Hadith #903]

There was no prophet with Muhammad on earth.

Abu Umamah Bahili (RA) reported that Allah’s Messenger (SAW) said, “Surely, Allah, His angels, the inhabitants of the heavens and the earths, even the ants in their holes and even the fish invoke blessings on the teacher of the people about what is good.” (Tirmidhi 2694)

6. THE GREAT INTERCESSION / MUHAMMAD IS THE FINAL PROPHET

- 8 Angels will carry the Throne of Allah.
- the people will go to Adam and ask him to intercede for them
- he will refuse

They will then ask Nuh:
- he will refuse because he asked a question he shouldn’t have asked.
- they will ask Ibrahim: He will refuse because he told 3 lies
- they will ask Musa: - he will refuse because he killed a man
- they will ask Jesus (Isa) : he will refuse

Yahya related to me from Malik from Abu'z-Zinad from al-Araj from Abu Hurayra that the Messenger of Allah (SAW), said, "Every prophet is given a supplication (dua), and I wish to preserve my dua as intercession for my community in the next world. [Malik’s Muwatta, Book 15, Hadith #026]

- they will ask Muhammad: and Muhammad will intercede - This is the Great

Intercession: - Ash-Shifaa al-Kubra

Narrated By Anas: The Prophet said, "On the Day of Resurrection the Believers will assemble and say, 'Let us ask somebody to intercede for us with our Lord.' So they will go to Adam and say, 'You are the father of all the people, and Allah created you with His Own Hands, and ordered the angels to prostrate to you, and taught you the names of all things; so please intercede for us with your Lord, so that He may relieve us from this place of ours.' Adam will say, 'I am not fit for this (i.e. intercession for you).' Then Adam will remember his sin and feel ashamed thereof. He will say, 'Go to Noah, for he was the first Apostle, Allah sent to the inhabitants of the earth.' They will go to him and Noah will say: 'I am not fit for this undertaking.' He will remember his appeal to his Lord to do what he had no knowledge of, then he will feel ashamed thereof and will say, 'Go to the Khalil-r-Rahman (i.e. Abraham).' They will go to him and he will say, 'I am not fit for this undertaking. Go to Moses, the slave to whom Allah spoke (directly) and gave him the Torah.' So they will go to him and he will say, 'I am not fit for this undertaking.' and he will mention (his) killing a person who was not a killer, and so he will feel ashamed thereof before his Lord, and he will say, 'Go to Jesus, Allah's Slave, His Apostle and Allah's Word and a Spirit coming from Him. Jesus will say, 'I am not fit for this undertaking, go to Muhammad the Slave of Allah whose past and future sins were forgiven by Allah.' So they will come to me and I will proceed till I will ask my Lord's Permission and I will be given permission. When I see my Lord, I will fall down in Prostration and He will let me remain in that state as long as He wishes and then I will be addressed.' (Muhammad!) Raise your head. Ask, and your request will be granted; say, and your saying will be listened to; intercede, and your intercession will be accepted.' I will raise my head and praise Allah with a saying (i.e. invocation) He will teach me, and then I will intercede. He will fix a limit for me (to intercede for) whom I will admit into Paradise. Then I will come back again to Allah, and when I see my Lord, the same thing will happen to me. And then I will intercede and Allah will fix a limit for me to intercede whom I will let into Paradise, then I will come back for the third time; and then I will come back for the fourth time, and will say, 'None remains in Hell but those whom the Qur'an has imprisoned (in Hell) and who have been destined to an eternal stay in Hell.' " (The compiler) Abu 'Abdullah said: 'But those whom the Qur'an has imprisoned in Hell,' refers to the Statement of Allah: "They will dwell therein forever." (16.29) [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 6, Book 60, Hadith #003]
