HADITH (Traditions of the Prophet Muhammad Peace be Upon Him)

Abdullah bin `Amr bin Al-`As (May Allah be pleased with them) reported: The Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) said to me, "Do not be like so-and-so O `Abdullah! He used to pray during the night, then stopped the practice.'' [Al-Bukhari and Muslim]

Abdullah bin Mas`ud (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: Mention was made before the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) of a man who slept throughout the night till morning. The Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) remarked, "He is a man in whose ears Satan urinated.'' [Al-Bukhari and Muslim]

Commentary: This Hadith holds inducement for night prayer (Qiyam-ul-Lail) and highlights its merits. It also urges one to perpetuate his good actions, follow the practice of the righteous and avoid the way of those who are negligent or become negligent in the performance of virtuous deeds.

Urination of Satan in a person's ear or ears can be literally true (although we cannot perceive it) because if a person does not seek the protection of Allah against Satan, then Satan joins him in food and other activities, as is evident from other Ahadith. Therefore, urination of Satan is also possible. Some say it is a metaphor to the effect that he who does not get up at night for prayer and goes on enjoying his sleep, Satan `closes' his ears until he does not hear the remembrance of Allah. Some others consider it a metaphor for the contempt and insult of Satan. In either case, we learn from this Hadith that missing the Qiyam-ul-Lail is disliked because it provides Satan an opportunity to create mischief, and he succeeds in creating obstructions in the worship and obedience of Allah.

Some 1st year medical students were attending their 1st anatomy class. They gathered around the surgery table with a real dead dog.

The Professor started the class by telling them two important qualities of a Doctor. The 1st is that NEVER BE DISGUSTED FOR ANYTHING ABOUT THE BODY, e.g. He inserted his finger in the dog’s mouth & on drawing back tasted it in his own mouth (yuck!)...

Then he said to them to do the same.
The students hesitated for several minutes.
But eventually they inserted their fingers in the dog’s mouth tasted it.

When everyone finished, the Professor looked at them and said: “The most important 2nd quality is OBSERVATION... I inserted my Middle finger but tasted the Index finger.

Now learn to pay attention.
