Jinn in Hadith Malik’s Muwatta

(1) Yahya related to me from Malik from Abd arRahman ibn Abdullah ibn Abd ar-Rahman ibn Abu Sasaca al-Ansari, and later al-Mazini, that his father told him that Abu Said al-Khudri had said to him, “I see that you love sheep and the desert. When you are among your sheep or in your desert, call the prayer and raise your voice in the adhan, because I heard the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, say, ‘No jinn or man oranything within range hears the voice of the muadhdhin except that it bears witness for him on the day of rising.’ ”  (Book #3, Hadith #3.1.5)

(2) Yahya related to me from Malik from Yazid ibn Abdullah ibn al-Had from Muhammad ibn Ibrahim ibn al-Harith at-Taymi from Abu Salama ibn Abd ar-Rahman ibn Awf that Abu Hurayra said, “I went out to at-Tur (Mount Sinai) and met Kab al Ahbar and sat with him. He related to me things from the Tawrah and I related to him things from the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace. Among the things I related to him was that the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, ‘The best of days on which the sun rises is the day of jumua. In it Adam was created, and in it he fell from the Garden. In it he was forgiven, and in it he died. In it the Hour occurs, and every moving thing listens from morning till sunset in apprehension of the Hour except jinn and men. In it is a time when Allah gives toa muslim slave standing in prayer whatever he asks for.’ Kab said, ‘That is one day in every year.’ I said, ‘No, in every jumua.’ Then Kab recited the Tawrah and said, ‘The Messenger of Allah has spoken the truth.’ ” Abu Hurayra continued, “I met Basra ibn Abi Basra al-Ghiffari and he said, ‘Where have you come from?’ I said, ‘From at-Tur.’ He said, ‘If I had seen you before you left, you would not have gone. I heard the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, say, “Only make a special journey to three mosques: the mosque of the Haram (Makka), this mosque (Madina), and the mosque of Ilya or the Bait al-Maqdis (two names of Jerusalem).” ‘ ” (He was not sure which expression was used.) Abu Hurayra continued, “Then I met Abdullah ibn Salam and I told him that I had sat with Kabal-Ahbar, and I mentioned what I had related to him about the day of jumua, and told him that Kab had said, ‘That is one day in every year.’ Abdullah ibn Salam said, ‘Kab lied,’ and I added, ‘Kab then recited the Tawrah and said, “No, it is in every jumua.” ‘ Abdullah ibn Salam said, ‘Kab spoke the truth. ‘Then Abdullah ibn Salam said, ‘I know what time that is.’ ” Abu Hurayra continued, “I said to him, ‘Let me know it – don’t keep it from me.’ Abdullah ibn Salam said, ‘It is the last period of time in the dayof jumua.’ ” Abu Hurayra continued, “I said, ‘How can it be the last period of time in the day of jumua, when the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, “a muslim slave standing in prayer”, and that is a time when there is no prayer?’ Abdullah ibn Salam replied, ‘Didn’t the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, say, “Whoever sits waiting for the prayer is in prayer until he prays?” “‘ Abu Hurayra added, “I said, ‘Of course.’ He said, ‘Then it is that.’ ”  (Book #5, Hadith #5.7.17)

(3) Yahya related to me from Malik from Nafi from Abdullah ibn Umar that some men from Iraq said to him, “Abu Abd ar-Rahman, we buy the fruit of the palm and grapes and we squeeze them into wine and we sell it.” Abdullah ibn Umar said, “I call on Allah and His angels and whoever hears of jinn and men to testify to you that I order you not to buy it nor sell it nor to press it nor to drink it nor to give it to people to drink. It is something impure from the work of Shaytan.” (Book #42, Hadith #42.5.15)

(4) Yahya related to me from Malik from Hisham ibn Urwa from his father that A’isha, umm al-muminin said, “When the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, came to Madina, Abu Bakr and Bilal came down with a fever. I visited them and said, ‘Father, how are you? Bilal, how are you?'” She continued, “When Abu Bakr’s fever worsened he would say, ‘Every man is struck down among his people in the morning – death is nearer than the strap of his sandal.'” When it left Bilal, he raised his voice and said, ‘Would that I knew whether I will spend a night at the valley of Makka with the idhkhir herb and jalil herb around me. Will I go one day to the waters of Majinna? Will the mountains of Shama and Tafil appear to me?’ ” ‘ A’isha continued, “I went to the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, and informed him. He said, ‘O Allah! Make us love Madina as much as we love Makka or even more. Make it sound and bless us in our sa and mudd. Remove its fever and put it in al-Juhfa.’ ”  (Book #45, Hadith #45.4.14)

(5) Yahya related to me from Malik that Yahya ibn Said said, “When the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, was taken on the Night Journey, he saw an evil jinn seeking him with a torch of fire. Whenever the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, turned, he saw him. Jibril said to him, ‘Shall I teach you some words to say? When you say them, his torch will be put out and will fall from him.’ The Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, ‘Yes, indeed.’ Jibril said, ‘Say, ‘I seek refuge with the Noble Face of Allah and with the complete words of Allah which neither the good person nor the corrupt can exceed, from the evil of what descends from the sky and the evil of what ascends in it, and from the evil of what is created in the earth and the evil of what comes out of it, and from the trials of the night and day, and from the visitations of the night and day, except for one that knocks with good, O Merciful!” “‘ Audhu bi wajhi’llahi’ l-karim wa bi kalimati’llahi’t-tammati. Allati la yujawazu hunna barra wa la fajir, min sharri ma yanzil min as-sama, wa sharri ma yaruju fiha, wa sham ma dhara’ fi’l-ard, wa sharri ma yakhruju minha, wa min fitani’l-layli wa’n-nahar, wa min tawariqi’l-layli wa’n-nahar illa tariqan yatruq bikhayr ya Rahman!  (Book #51, Hadith #51.4.10)

(6) Malik related to me that he heard that Umar ibn al-Khattab wanted to go to Iraq, and Kabal-Ahbar said to him, “Do not go there, amir al-muminin. There is nine-tenths of sorcery there and it is the place of the rebellious jinn and the disease which the doctors are unable to cure.”  (Book #54, Hadith #54.11.30)

(7) Malik related to me from Safiyy, the mawla of Ibn Aflah that Abu’s-Saib, the mawla of Hisham ibn Zuhra said, “I went to Abu Said al-Khudri and found him praying. I sat to wait for him until he finished the prayer. I heard a movement under a bed in his room, and it was a snake. I stood up to kill it, and Abu Said gestured to me to sit. When he was finished he pointed to a room in the house and said, ‘Do you see this room?’ I said, ‘Yes.’ He said, ‘There was a young boy in it who had just got married. He went out with the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, to al-Khandaq, (the ditch which the muslims dug in the 5th year of the Hijra to defend Madina against the Quraysh and their allies). When he was there, the youth came and asked his permission, saying, “Messenger of Allah. Give me permission to return to my family.” The Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, gave him permission and said, “Take your weapons with you, for I fear the Banu Quraydha tribe. They may harm you.” The youth went to his family and found his wife standing between the two doors. He lifted his spear to stab her as jealousy had been aroused in him. She said, “Don’t be hasty until you go in and see what is in your house.” He entered and found a snake coiled up on his bed. He transfixed it with his spear and then went out with it and pitched it into the house. The snake stirred on the end of the spear and the youth fell dead. No one knew which of them died first, the snake or the youth. That was mentioned to the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, and he said, “There are jinn in Madina who have become muslim. When you see one of them, call out to it for three days. If it appears after that, then kill it, for it is a shaytan.” “‘  (Book #54, Hadith #54.12.33)
