35- 136- on the authority of al-Miqdam bin Shuraay, on the authority of his father who said that ‘Aeysha –radhiAllaahu anha- asked about going out to the desert so she said:
The Messenger of Allaah – sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam – used to go out to the stream which came own a hill. One day he wanted to go out to the desert, so he sent me a female-camel which could not be tamed and rode from the camels which were for charity.

Until one day the servant said: O Messenger of Allaah! I have a need. He asked: ‘What is your need?’ He said: ‘My need is that you intercede for me on the Day of Judgement.’
He asked the servant: ‘Who directed you to this?’ He said: ‘My Lord.’ He answered: ‘Only if you help me by performing a lot of prostration.’
37- 139- On the authority of Jaabir bin Abdullaah: ‘The Messenger – sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam – used to stay at the back of the group (who were) travelling, to urge on the weak ones, carry passengers and supplicate for them.’

40- 131- On the authority of Jaabir bin Abdullaah: ‘When the Messenger – sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam – used to walk, his Companions used to walk in front of him, they would leave his back for the Angels.’
41- On the authority of Abu Huraira who said: We would pray the Isha prayer with the Messenger of Allaah – sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam – and when he would prostrate al-Hasan and al-Hussain would jump on to his back. When he would raise his head, he would take them off his back with his hand gently and place them on the ground gently. If they repeated what they did, he would take them off again.
When he had prayed, he placed them on his lap, one on one side the other on the other side.
Abu Huraira then mentions ‘I came to him and said: ‘O Messenger of Allaah! Shall I not take them to their mother?’ He answered: ‘No.’ then lightening struck and the Messenger said: ‘Go to your mother.’ they continued walking in the light from the lightening until they reached their mother.
