    Posted: 12 June 2006 at 5:16am
I read a very funny incident in the Hadith of Sahih Bukhari.
Volume 4, Book 55, Number 619:
Narrated Abu Huraira:

The Angel of Death was sent to Moses when he came to Moses, Moses slapped him on the eye. The angel returned to his Lord and said, "You have sent me to a Slave who does not want to die." Allah said, "Return to him and tell him to put his hand on the back of an ox and for every hair that will come under it, he will be granted one year of life." Moses said, "O Lord! What will happen after that?" Allah replied, "Then death." Moses said, "Let it come now." Moses then requested Allah to let him die close to the Sacred Land so much so that he would be at a distance of a stone's throw from it." Abu Huraira added, "Allah's Apostle said, 'If I were there, I would show you his grave below the red sand hill on the
And We have not sent you(O Muhammad!) but as a mercy to the worlds. (Al-Quran 21: 107)

yes, i have read this incident in a book called Stories of the Prophets by Ibn Kathir.

i found that a little funny

what i found more funny is the incident in which an Egyptian man was quarelling with another man, so Prophet Moses (pbuh) used his fist and smacked the Egyptian man on his face and the Egyptian man died on the spot. masha Allah Prophet Moses (pbuh) was very strong . later Prophet Moses (pbuh) repented to Allah for this act and Allah forgave Prophet Moses (pbuh) for his repentance.

Ok!, If you guys enjoy that, here is something from direct from Qur'aan: V37-38

"We told Noah that there will be no more believers from his people except those who did and don't worry about what they do. Build the boat in front of Us as told and don't talk about those cruel people who would surely drown.

And Noah started building the boat and everytime the chiefs of his people passed by, they laughed at him. Noah told them,'You laugh at us but in fact we are laughing at you, the same way.' "

Note: They saw Noah building a boat on dry lands where there was no sign of any water, river or lake. The people naturally laughed and mocked at him making fun of him. Noah knew what was coming up and in his heart he was laughing at them as they did not believe and made fun of him.

Well, I shouldn't be misunderstood, but I respect all the Prophets equally. I found the characteristic of this act funny, Moses slapping the Angel of Death in the eye. I mean Prophet Moses had a very curious personality too.

brother bmz
your example was serious about the ark. This was just one of the minor funny acts of Prophet Moses on his part, apart from pulling the Pharoah's beard when he was a child.

I thought there were several funny scenes in Bukhari, showing the Prophet Muhummad as a very witty individual.  I wish I had made a not of them - I have tried to search several times and can't find them anymore.

DavidC, I don't think there is anything
rong with the personalities of the Prophets, after all they were human beings- they weren't solemn-faced teachers! I think, a person without any interesting carachter is a really dull person.
