Bk. 54: Beginning of Creation

Narrated `Imran bin Husain: Some people of Bani Tamim came to
the Prophet and he said (to them), “O Bani Tamim! rejoice with
glad tidings.” They said, “You have given us glad tidings, now
give us something.” On hearing that the color of his face
changed then the people of Yemen came to him and he said, “O
people of Yemen ! Accept the good tidings, as Bani Tamim has
refused them.” The Yemenites said, “We accept them. Then the
Prophet started taking about the beginning of creation and
about Allah’s Throne. In the mean time a man came saying, “O
`Imran! Your she−camel has run away!” (I got up and went
away), but l wish I had not left that place (for I missed what
Allah’s Apostle had said).
Narrated `Imran bin Husain: I went to the Prophet and tied my
she−camel at the gate. The people of Bani Tamim came to the
Prophet who said “O Bani Tamim! Accept the good tidings.” They
said twice, ‘You have given us the good tidings, now give us
something” Then some Yemenites came to him and he said,
“Accept the good tidings, O people of Yemem, for Bani Tamim
refused them.” They said, “We accept it, O Allah’s Apostle! We
have come to ask you about this matter (i.e. the start of
creations).” He said, “First of all, there was nothing but
Allah, and (then He created His Throne). His throne was over
the water, and He wrote everything in the Book (in the Heaven)
and created the Heavens and the Earth.” Then a man shouted, “O
Ibn Husain! Your she−camel has gone away!” So, I went away and
could not see the she−camel because of the mirage. By Allah, I
wished I had left that she−camel (but not that gathering).
Narrated `Umar: One day the Prophet stood up amongst us for a
long period and informed us about the beginning of creation
(and talked about everything in detail) till he mentioned how
the people of Paradise will enter their places and the people
of Hell will enter their places. Some remembered what he had
said, and some forgot it.
Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah’s Apostle said, “Allah the Most
Superior said, “The son of Adam slights Me, and he should not
slight Me, and he disbelieves in Me, and he ought not to do
so. As for his slighting Me, it is that he says that I have a
son; and his disbelief in Me is his statement that I shall not
recreate him as I have created (him) before.”
Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah’s Apostle said, “When Allah
completed the creation, He wrote in His Book which is with Him
on His Throne, “My Mercy overpowers My Anger.”
Narrated Muhammad bin Ibrahim bin Al−Harith: from Abu Salama
bin `Abdur−Rahman who had a dispute with some people on a
piece of land, and so he went to `Aisha and told her about it.
She said, “O Abu Salama, avoid the land, for Allah’s Apostle
said, ‘Any person who takes even a span of land unjustly, his
neck shall be encircled with it down seven earths.’ “
