Madinah

It is reported that Imam Jafar as-Sadiq رحمه الله would turn pale whenever he heard the Prophet Muhammad صلى الله عليه و آله و صحبه و سلم mentioned.

From this, Imam Malik رحمه الله would not mention a Hadith except in a state of ritual purity.

 

‘Abd ar-Rahman ibn al-Qasim ibn Muhammad ibn Abu Bakr as-Siddiq رحمه الله would turn red and stammer whenever he heard the Prophet mentioned .

 

‘Amir ibn ‘Abd Allah ibn al-Zubayr ibn al-‘Awamm al-Asadi, would weep until his eyes had no tears left in them.

When a Hadith was mentioned in their presence they would lower their voices.

 

Imam Malik رحمه الله said:

 

“His {The Prophet’s} صلى الله عليه و آله و صحبه و سلم sacredness in death is as his inviolability in life.”
