As Salaamu Alaykum wa Ragmatullahi wa Barakatuhu



Hazrat Abu Sa'eed Khudri RadiyAllahu Anhu  reported that Hazrat Mu'awiya RadiyAllahu Anhu  went to a gathering in the mosque and said:



What makes you sit here? They said: We are sitting here in order to remember Allah. He said: I adjure you by Allah (to tell me whether you are sitting here for this very purpose)? They said: By Allah, we are sitting here for this very purpose.



Thereupon, he said: I have not demanded you to take an oath, because of any allegation against you. And no one in my rank, being so close to Allah's Messenger صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ  has narrated so few Ahadith as I have. The fact is that Allah's Messenger صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ  went out to the circle of his Companions and said: What makes you sit here? They said: We are sitting here in order to remember Allah and to praise Him for He guided us to the path of Islam and He conferred favours upon us.



Thereupon he adjured by Allah and asked if that only was the purpose of their sitting there. They said: By Allah, we are not sitting here but for this very purpose, whereupon he (the Messenger صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ  said: I am not asking you to take an oath because of any allegation against you but for the fact that Jibra’eel Alayhis Salaam came to me and he informed me that Allah, the Exalted and Glorious, was boasting to the Angels about your magnificence.
