Hadith on Prayer: Aisha would sleep in front of the Prophet while he prayed, and his touching her did not nullify his ablution

August 29, 2012

Aisha reported: I was sleeping in front of the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, with my legs between him and the direction of prayer. When he prostrated himself, he would pinch me and I would draw up my legs. When he stood up, I would stretch them out. At that time, there were no lamps in the houses.

عَنْ عَائِشَةَ قَالَتْ  كُنْتُ أَنَامُ بَيْنَ يَدَيْ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ وَرِجْلَايَ فِي قِبْلَتِهِ فَإِذَا سَجَدَ غَمَزَنِي فَقَبَضْتُ رِجْلَيَّ وَإِذَا قَامَ بَسَطْتُهُمَا قَالَتْ وَالْبُيُوتُ يَوْمَئِذٍ لَيْسَ فِيهَا مَصَابِيحُ
