CHAPTER ON THE BED OF SAYYIDINA RASULULLAH SALLA LAHU ALAYHI WA’ALE HI WASALLAM 

Hazrat Sheikh-ul Hadeeth Maulana Muhammad Zakariyya Kandhelwi (R.A.) explains; 

It shall be known from the following narrations mentioned by the author on what type of bed did Sayyidina Rasulullah Salla lahu 'Alayhi Wa’ale hi Wasallam rest upon. We who are from among his nation - Ummah know the state of our carpets and other furnishings, which is before our eyes.  

The author mentioned two hadith in this chapter.   


(311) Hadith Number 1

Sayyidina 'Aayeshah Radiyallahu 'Anha reports that the bed on which Rasulullah Salla lahu 'Alayhi Wa’ale Hi Wasallam slept was made of leather, in which was filled coir of the palm tree. 
 

Commentary

The bed Sayyidina Rasulullah Salla lahu'Alayhi Wa’ale Hi Wasallam used, was at times the one made of leather as stated in the above hadith, or at times was one that was made of canvas, as will be mentioned in the following hadith. At times it was only a mat made of palm leaves. This subject has been narrated in many ahaadith that when the Sahaabah Radiyallahu 'Anhum asked the permission to make a soft bed, Sayyidina Rasulullah Salla lahu 'Alayhi Wa’ale Hi Wasallam used to reply: 'What do I have in common with worldly comforts. My example is that of a traveller who after walking, stops under the shadow of a tree for a while to rest, and after sitting a while continues on his way'. Subhan-Allah Ya Rasulullah.
  
Sayyiditina 'Aayeshah Radiyallahu 'Anha says: 'Once a woman from the Ansaar came and saw that an 'abaa (cloak) was spread on the bed of Sayyidina Rasulullah Salla lahu 'Alayhi Wa’ale Hi Wasallam. She returned home and made a bed in which she filled wool, and sent it to me for Sayyidina Rasulullah Salla lahu 'Alayhi Wa’ale Hi Wasallam. When Sayyidina Rasulullah Salla lahu 'Alayhi Wa’ale Hi Wasallam returned and saw the bed, he inquired, 'What is this?' I replied: 'A certain woman from the Ansaar came and after seeing the bed of Rasulullah Salla lahu 'Alayhi Wa’ale Hi Wasallam she made and sent this bed'. Sayyidina Rasulullah Salla lahu 'Alayhi Wa’ale Hi Wasallam said; 'Return it'. It looked good to me, and I did not feel like sending it back. Rasulullah Salla lahu 'Alayhi Wa’ale Hi Wasallam insisted that I send it back, and said: 'I swear an oath if I wished Allah Ta'aala will line up mountains of gold and silver for me'. On this saying of Rasulullah Salla lahu 'Alayhi Wa’ale Hi Wasallam I returned the bed. Sayyidina 'Abdullah bin Mas'ud Radiyallahu 'Anhu says: 'I once came to Rasulullah Salla lahu 'Alayhi Wa’ale Hi Wasallam. He was resting on a mat made of palm leaves, the marks of which could be seen on the blessed - mubaarak body of Rasulullah Salla lahu 'Alayhi Wa’ale Hi Wasallam. After seeing this state I began to cry. Sayyidina Rasulullah Salla lahu 'Alayhi Wa’ale Hi Wasallam asked: 'What is the matter, why are you crying?' I replied: 'O Messenger of Allah, these Qaysars and Kisras sleep on beds of silk and velvet, and you on this palm mat'. Sayyidina Rasulullah Salla lahu 'Alayhi Wa’ale Hi Wasallam said.' 'It is not a thing to cry about. For them is the world and for us the hereafter'. A similar incident once took place with Sayyidina 'Umar Radiyallahu 'Anhu when he came to Sayyidina Rasulullah Salla lahu 'Alayhi Wa’ale Hi Wasallam and this same type of question and answer took place. The detailed incident is mentioned in the Sahih Bukhaari.




(312) Hadith Number 2.


Hasrat Imaam Muhammad AI-Baaqir Radiyallahu 'Anhu says that someone asked Ummul Mu'mineen Sayyidina 'Aayeshah Radiyallahu 'Anha: 'How was the bed of Rasulullah Salla lahu 'Alayhi Wa’ale Hi Wasallam in your house?' She replied: 'It was made of leather, in which was filled the coir of the date palm'. Hasrat Hafsah Radiyallahu 'Anha was asked how was the bed of Rasulullah Salla lahu 'Alayhi Wa’ale Hi Wasallam in your house? She replied: 'It was a canvas folded into two, which was spread for Rasulullah Salla lahu 'Alayhi Wa’ale Hi Wasallam to sleep on. On one night I thought if I folded it into four and spread it, it would become softer. I folded it and spread it that way. In the morning Rasulullah Salla lahu 'Alayhi Wa’ale Hi Wasallam asked: 'What did you spread for me last night? I replied: 'It was the same bed, I only folded it into four so that it may become softer'. Rasulullah Salla lahu 'Alayhi Wa’ale Hi Wasallam said: 'Leave it in its original form. Its softness deprived me of my prayers (tahajjud) at night'.   


Commentary

It means that Rasulullah (salla lahu alayhi wa’ale hi wasallam) did not wake up for Salaat’ul tahajjud, at the normal time or he may have awakened later than usual. One sleeps more soundly on a soft bed, and also for a longer period. If it is a rough and uneven bed, firstly, one will not sleep with ease; secondly, one will awaken quickly. This was to show the Ummah.

Studying Ash-Shaam-il  

The bed of Sayyidina Rasulullah (salla lahu alayhi wa’ale hi wasallam)   

Sayyidina Rasulullah’s (salla lahu alayhi wa’ale hi wasallam) mattress was made of leather (tanned leather) stuffed with coir (threads from around the trunk of palm trees).  Also his bed is described as being made from canvas folded in two. Rasulullah (salla lahu alayhi wa’ale hi wasallam) did not like comfortable bed to sleep on.

Also Rasulullah (salla lahu alayhi wa’ale hi wasallam) stated that ‘it is makruh to have an empty bed’. Spread or unfolded bed is for shaytaan. The bed should be covered completely.
