Chapter : Taking omens.

Narated By Farwah ibn Musayk : Yahya ibn Abdullah ibn Buhayr said that he was informed by one who had heard Farwah ibn Musayk tell that he said: Apostle of Allah! we have land called Abyan, which is the land where we have our fields and grow our crops, but it is very unhealthy. The Prophet (PBUH) said: Leave it, for destruction comes from being near disease.
