As salam walaykum, Please
explain how we can understand
the hadith of the Prophet (peace
and blessings be upon him)
falling unconcious when he
removed his lower garment to
ease the burden of moving
stones on his head. "Narrated
Jabir bin Abdullah: While Allah's
Apostle (s) was carrying stones
(along) with people of Mecca for
(the building of) the Kaaba
wearing an Izar (waist-sheet
cover), his uncle Al-'Abbas said
to him, "O my nephew! (it would
be better) if you take off your
Izar and put it over your
shoulders underneath the
stones". So he took off his Izar
and put it over his shoulders,
but he fell unconscious and
since then he had never been
seen naked". "Sahih al Bukhari"
Volume. (I). Book (8): "The book
of Salat (Prayers)" Chapter
(8):"It is disliked to be naked
during the prayers". Also, would
you please be able to tell the
STORY of how and WHY Musa
(peace be upon him) chose the
hot coal over the date; and the
reason for his lisp. Jazak Allahu
Khair for your time, may Allah
guide all the Muslims to the
true path. As salam walaykum


All perfect praise be to Allah,
The Lord of the Worlds. I testify
that there is none worthy of
worship except Allah, and that
Muhammad is His slave and

This story, which occurred
during the construction of the
Ka’bah, took place during the
pre-Islamic period of ignorance
and before the advent of Islam,
and it was reported by Al-
Bukhari and Muslim . What
can be deduced from this story
is that this is evidence that
Prophet Muhammad was a
true Prophet, and that Allah The
Almighty wanted to protect him
from vile matters even before
He sent him as a Prophet.
In some other narrations, it is
reported that he heard a voice
from the sky ordering him to
put on his Izaar (lower
covering). Al-‘Abbaas, may Allah
be pleased with him, asked him
(the Prophet ), “What is
wrong?” Then, the Prophet
said: "I was forbidden from
doing so.” Al-‘Abbaas, may Allah
be pleased with him, said, "I
concealed this matter until Allah
showed his prophecy [sent him
as a Prophet]."

As regards the Prophet Moosa
(Moses), may Allah exalt his
mention, taking the hot coal
[instead of the jewel], then this
was from Allah The Almighty in
order to save Moosa, may Allah
exalt his mention, from the
tyranny of Pharaoh as the latter
wanted to kill him.

The interpreters of the Quran
reported that Sa’eed ibn Jubayr
and Mujaahid said that
the disability of the tongue of
Moosa, may Allah exalt his
mention, was a result of a hot
coal which he had put in his
mouth (during his childhood).

This happened when the wife of
Pharaoh ordered him to do so
to save him from being
punished or killed, when he
pulled the beard of Pharaoh
and Pharaoh said, "He is an
enemy to me". Then his wife
(told him to let Moosa choose
between a jewel and a hot coal
put on a tray and Moosa chose
the hot coal. Then she) said,
"He does not perceive or
understand anything" trying to
prevent him from punishing and
killing Moosa, may Allah exalt
his mention.

Allah Knows best.
