HOUSE


Sayyidah Ayesha (radi Allahu anha) reported that Sayyiduna Jibra’eel (alaihis salaam) made a promise with Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) to come at a definite hour. The hour came but he did not visit him. The Prophet of Allah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) had a staff in his hand which he threw on the floor and said: “Never has Allah or His Messengers (Angels) ever broken their promises”. Then he cast a glance and by chance found a puppy under his cot and said: “Ayesha (radi Allahu anha), when did this dog enter here?” She said: “By Allah, I don’t know.” He then commanded and it was turned out. Then the Angel came inside and Allah’s Messenger (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) said to him: “You promised me and I waited for you, but you did not come.” He said: “It was the dog in your house which prevented me to come, for we Angels do not enter a house in which there is a dog or picture.” (Muslim)

Sayyiduna Abu-Talha (radi Allahu anhu) reported that Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) said: “Angels do not enter a house in which is found a dog or a statue.” (Muslim)

Sayyidah Ayesha (radi Allahu anha) reported: We had a curtain on which were portraits of birds. Whenever a visitor came, he found them in front of him. Thereupon, Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) said to me, “Change them, for whenever I enter the room I see them and it brings to my mind the pleasures of worldly life.”
