Abu Huraira RA Companions of the Prophet SAW never diamanati to keep the grain of charity. Suddenly in the night, there was a man who stole the corn. He was then arrested by Abu Hurairah RA. “You’ll bring to the Prophet,” Abu Huraira said to the thief. However, the thief pleading. With coaxing rayunya, he said, was a week his wife and children have not eaten. Abu Hurairah finally let go of the thief, and asked him not to steal anymore.
The next day after the dawn prayer, before he could report, it was asked by Abu Huraira the Prophet SAW. “What do you do about people who you catch last night?” Abu Huraira then explain what happened. “Remember, tonight he will come again,” said the Prophet Muhammad. True, the second night the thief was coming again. And, after taking wheat, he was captured by Abu Huraira. He also pleaded again and Abu Huraira also can not stand so that the thief was released again.
The next day, the Prophet asked Abu Huraira, like yesterday. Abu Huraira also said like that. Prophet reminded again, the thief would come again tonight. In the liver, Abu Hurairah RA said, “Tonight, he will not I let go again.” Sure enough, the thief was coming for a third time and re-stealing wheat. Abu Hurairah return catch. “Now, no way I release you. You have me take it to the Prophet Muhammad.”
The thief was very clever. To Abu Hurairah, he said, “I am ready to be brought to the Prophet Muhammad, but may I speak, O Abu Hurayrah?” Abu Hurairah said, “Please, speak what?” The thief had said, “O Abu Huraira, do you want me give wiridan?” “Certainly not, wiridan is it?” Abu Hurairah replied curious. Indeed, the companions happy with wiridan and reading. The thief said, “Read verse seat before you sleep, Allah will keep you from the temptations of Satan.”
Hearing the words of the thief, Abu Hurairah was amazed, “Apparently these thieves a ust.” Finally, without further ado, let the thief Abu Huraira. The next day, the Prophet asked such questions yesterday. Abu Huraira replied, “Thieves wiridan last night it gave me. I was told to read the verse chair before bedtime. God willing, God will keep me from demonic interference,” replied Abu Hurayrah. The Prophet SAW said, “What did he say it is true, but he was lying.” “You know, O Abu Hurairah, who is the thief? He is the devil,” said the Prophet Muhammad.
The story is narrated by Imam Bukhari that provide lessons for us. First, the devil of the Jinn can be transformed into a kind human being. Second, can the devil tells them to worship, reading the Qur’an, prayer, fasting, pilgrimage, and so on. Abu Hurairah has been straightened out by the Prophet so that he did not read the paragraph following the command chair as the devil, but follow the commands of the Prophet SAW. Had someone run but he followed the orders of worship Satan and not God’s commandments, then he has to worship the devil. And Allaah knows best.
