of the Prophet |
Abu Sa`eed 'Al-Khudriy said: A small number of the companions of
the Prophet took off in one of their journeys till they reached an
Arab tribe. Then they asked hospitality of them, whereupon, they
refused to show them hospitality. The chief of the town was soon
after bitten [by a scorpion or a snake]. They sought everything for
him; however nothing did him any good. Then a few of them said: Why
don't you go to that group of men that have taken lodging over there?
Perhaps some of them might have something [for it]. So they went to
them and said: O' you folk, our chief has been stung and we tried
everything but nothing did him any good, so does anyone of you have
something [to treat him with]? One of them then said: By Allah I
charm; however, by Allah we asked you to show us hospitality, and you
refused, so I am not going to charm for you until you set an agreed
upon price. They then reconciled over a flock of sheep. Then the man
set off spitting on him [on the chief], and reciting 'Al-hamdu
lil-lãhi rabbil ãlameena(165)
(165) May be translated as: All praise to Allah the Lord of the Worlds.
