Narated By N/A : Ibn Abbas said: The deputation of `Abd al-Qais came to Allah (may peace be upon him) and said: This is the tribe of Rabi’ah, of Mudar are between us and you. We are able to come to you only in the sacred month. So give a decisive command which we may follow ourselves at call those at home behind us. He (the Prophet) said: I command you to observe four things, and forbid you four things: Belief in Allah, the testimony that but Allah, and he expressed one by folding his hand. Musaddad’s version has: Faith in Allah, and he explained it to them: The testimony that there is no god but Allah, and that Muhammad is the Apostle of Allah, observance of prayer, payment of zak’at, and your giving the fifth of the booty. I forluid you the use of pumpkins, green jarrs, vessels smeared with pitch, and hollow stumps of palm-trees. Ibn ‘Ubaids version has the word muqayyar (vessels smeared with pitch) instead of naqir (hollow stumps). Musaddad’s version has naqir and muqayyar (pitch); he di mention (vessels smeared with pitch).
Abu Dawud said: The name of Abu Jamrah is Nasr b. ‘Imran al-Duba’i.
