13.1 It was narrated that Abu Darda’ (رضي الله عنه) said

“I performed eleven prostrations with the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وعلى آله وسلم) of which there were none in the Mufassal. Al-A’raf, Ar-Ra’d, An-Nahl, Bani Isra’il, Maryam, Al-Hajj, the prostration in Al-Furqan, Surat An-Naml (mentioning) Sulaiman, As- Sajdah, Sad, and the Ha-Mim Surah.”

13.2 Narrated ‘Abdul-Malik bin ‘Umair (رضي الله عنه)

from the nephew of ‘Abdullah bin Salam who said: “When they were after ‘Uthman, ‘Abdullah bin Salam came, and ‘Uthman said to him: ‘What did you come for?’ He said: ‘I came to assist you.’ He said: ‘Go to the people to repel their advances against me. For verily your going is better to me than your entering here.'” He said: “So ‘Abdullah bin Salam went to the people and said: ‘O you people! During Jahiliyyah I was named so-and-so, then the Messenger of Allah (صلى الله عليه وعلى آله وسلم) named me ‘Abdullah, and some Ayat from the Book of Allah were revealed about me. (The following) was revealed about me:

﴾ وشهد شاهد من بني إسرائيل على مثله فآمن واستكبرتم إن الله لا يهدي القوم الظالمين ﴿

‘A witness from among the Children of Isra’il has testified to something similar, and believed while you rejected. Verily, Allah does not guide the wrongdoing people. (46:10)”

And (the following) was revealed about me:

 ﴾ قل كفى بالله شهيدا بيني وبينكم ومن عنده علم الكتاب ﴿

‘Sufficient as a witness between me and you is Allah, and those too who have knowledge of the Scripture. (13:43)”

Allah has sheathed the sword from you and the angels are your neighbors in this city of yours, the one in which the Revelation came to your Prophet. But by Allah! (Fear) Allah regarding this man; if you kill him, then by Allah! If you kill him, then you will cause the angels to remove your goodness from you, and to raise Allah’s sheathed sword against you, such that it will never be sheathed again until the Day of Resurrection.'” He said: “They said: ‘Kill the Jew and kill ‘Uthman.'”

13.3 Narrated Abu Hurairah (رضي الله عنه)

That the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وعلى آله وسلم) commented on:

 ﴾ ونفضل بعضها على بعض في الأكل ﴿

“Some of them We make more excellent than others to eat (13:4).”

He said: “The Daqal, the Persian (referring to different kind of dates), the sweet, the bitter.”
