..up your marriage!

 Az-Zumar (39):42

It is Allh Who takes away the souls at the time of their death, and those that die not during their sleep. He keeps those (souls) for which He has ordained death and sends the rest for a term appointed. Verily, in this are signs for a people who think deeply.

According to al-Imaam Ibnu Katheer, rahimahullaah this means, those which have died, and He returns the others back for an appointed term.

As-Suddee said, ?For the rest of their lives.? Ibnu `Abbaas, radiyallaahu 'anhu said: "He keeps the souls of the dead and sends back the souls of the living, and He does not make any mistakes".

In the Two Saheehs of al-Bukhaaree and Muslim, it is reported that Aboo Hurayrah, radiyallaahu ?anhu, said that the Messenger of Allaah, sallallaahu ?alaihe wa sallam said:

[ : ǡ ]

When anyone of you goes to bed, he should shake out his bed with the inside (or end of) his izaar (lower garment or the like), for he does not know what has come on to it (or what occurred to it or fallen into) [the bed] after him, and then he should say:

O my Lord! In Your Name I lie down on my side and with Your Name I will lift it up there from.

If You take my soul, bestow mercy on it, and if You send it back, protect it as You protect Your righteous slaves

By now, you are probably wondering what does some of these narrations have to do with seperating a man from his wife?

In the book compiled by al-Imaam al-Bukhaaree entitled ?al-Adabul Mufrad? we find him ? rahimahullaah- saying:

Abdullaah bin Saalih narrated to us who said Mu?aawiyah said to me from Azhar ibn Sa?eed who said: I heard Aboo Umaamah saying:

Surely, ash-Shaytaan comes to the bed of one of you after your family spreads it out and gets it ready, he then throws sticks and stones or (other harmful) things upon it, to cause him to become angry with his family, so if he realizes that, then let him not become angry with his family.

He (added to this):

Because this is the work of ash-Shaytaan!


al-Allaamah, ash-Shaikh Muhammad Naasiruddeen al-Albaanee said about this narration: that its chain is hasan.

As for Jahmee laden footnote # 241 on page 511 ? as he did on page 82, hadeeth #173, footnote # 22 -  in the book entitled ?Imam Bukhaari?s Book of Muslim Morals and Manners? (al-Adabul Mufrad), translated by Yusuf Talal Delorenzo which states:

If ever a hadith was intended to be understood metaphorically, this is the one.Otherwise, neither a reading of revelation (in the form of the Qur?an or authentic hadiths) or of the real existential will yield anything to support the notion that Satan actually puts sticks in peoples? beds. Metaphorically, however, it is easy to understand how Satan may place sticks and stones in one?s marriage bed

...then it is worth less than two dead cockroaches in a volcano!
