By almaas Dec 26, 2023

 أَحْيَانًا يَأْتِينِي فِي مِثْلِ صَلْصَلَةِ الْجَرَسِ وَهُوَ أَشَدُّهُ عَلَىَّ ثُمَّ يَفْصِمُ عَنِّي وَقَدْ وَعَيْتُهُ وَأَحْيَانًا مَلَكٌ فِي مِثْلِ صُورَةِ الرَّجُلِ فَأَعِي مَا يَقُولُ ‏ 

(صحيح) … [مالك حم ق ت ن] عن عائشة زاد [طب] في آخره: [وهو أهونه علي] 1. مختصر مسلم 1572)

It is reported that the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said:

“At times it comes to me like the ringing of a bell and that is most severe for me and when it is over I retain that (what I had received in the form of wahi), and at times an Angel in the form of a human being comes to me (and speaks) and I retain whatever he speaks.”

This hadith was narrated by Malik (475), Ahmad (6/158), al-Bukhari (2), Muslim (2333), at-Tirmidhi (3634), al-Nasai (2/146), Ibn Hibban (38) from the words ‘Aisha, may Allah be pleased with her. 

At-Tabarani in his version at the end gave an addition:

“… and it’s easier for me.”

The hadith is authentic. See Sahih al-Jami ‘as-saghir (213), Sahih an-Nasai (932, 933), Mishkatul-masabih (5844), Mukhtasar Muslim (1572).

‘Aisha, may Allah be pleased with her, said: “And I had to see how on very cold days revelations were sent down to him, and after the completion of the sending down sweat always poured from his forehead.” al-Bukhari (2).


Benefits derived from hadith:

  1. Angels can transform into human form.
  2. In the hadith, an indication that the revelations descended on the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) while he was with his wives.
  3. In the hadith, an indication of the difficulty experienced by the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) during the acquisition of knowledge.
  4. The hadith indicates that the knowledge that is acquired with difficulties is not easily forgotten.
  5. In the hadith, an indication that what comes out of a pure body is pure until an argument is made indicating the opposite: “sweat was always pouring from his forehead.”
