Article translated to : Deutsch

the messenger of allah, may allah exalt his mention, was the most mindful person of allah. abdullah bin masoud, with whom allah is pleased, said:

‘[once] the messenger of allah, may allah exalt his mention, said to me: ‘recite to me from the qur'an!' abdullah b. masood, with whom allah is pleased, said: 'shall i recite it to you, and it is revealed to you!' the prophet, may allah exalt his mention, said: 'yes.' he said: 'i started to recite surat an-nisaa, until i reached the verse: (how then if we brought from each nation a witness, and we brought you as a witness against these people!) (4:41)

upon hearing this verse, the messenger of allah, may allah exalt his mention, said: 'that is enough!' abdullah b. masood, with whom allah is pleased, said, i turned around and saw the messenger of allah, may allah exalt his mention, crying.' (bukhari #4763)

a'ishah, the mother of the believers, with whom allah is pleased, said:

‘if the messenger of allah, may allah exalt his mention, saw dark clouds in the sky; he would pace forwards and backwards and would exit his house and enter it. as soon as it rained, the prophet, may allah exalt his mention, would relax. a'ishah, with whom allah is pleased, asked him about it, and he said: 'i do not know, it may be as some people said:

(then, when they saw the (penalty in the shape of) a cloud traversing the sky, coming to meet their valleys, they said: 'this cloud will give us rain! nay, it is the (calamity) you were asking to be hastened! a wind wherein is a grievous penalty!)[1] (46:24)
