|About Eclipses (188)|
|Abi Musă said: The sun eclipsed so the Prophet stood up in fright, fearing that it could be The Hour, then he came upon the Mosque and prayed with the longest standing,
bowing and prostration I have ever seen him do; and he said: "these signs which Allah sends are never for the death, or the
life of a person, but Allah frightens His bondservants with them. So if you see any of them then seek refuge in fear towards
the remembrance of Allah, petitioning Him, and asking His forgiveness." |
'Al-`Adawee said it was reported by Al-Bukhări, page 545 of volume 2 of Fath 'Al-Băree; Muslim, page 215 of Nawawi
volume 6; and An-Nisă'ee, page 154 of volume 3.
|About Eclipses (189)|
|`Aa'ishata said: In the lifetime of the Messenger of Allah the sun eclipsed so the Messenger of Allah stood up and led the people in prayer, and he prolonged the standing [the recitation]; then, he bowed, and prolonged the
bowing; then he lifted his head, and prolonged the standing, and it was shorter than the first; then he performed a prolonged
bowing which was shorter than the first; then he lifted his head; and then he performed two prostrations. He, then, stood
up and did the like in the second rak`ah. Then he stood up and said, "The sun and the moon do not eclipse because of someone's
life or death but are two signs amongst the signs of Allah which He shows to His worshippers so if you see them, then make
haste for prayer. |
