Wonderful Hadith

Narrated Ali (radiallahu anhu): The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) sent Sariya under the command of a man from the Ansar and ordered the soldiers to obey him. He (i.e., the commander) became angry and said, “Didn’t the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) order you to obey me! ” They replied, “Yes”. He said, “Collect firewood for me”. So they collected it. He said, “Make a fire”. When they made it, he said, “Enter It (i.e., the fire). So they intended to do that and started holding each other and saying, “We have run towards (i.e., followed or taken refuge with) the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) (in order to save ourselves) from the fire”. They kept on saying that till the fire was extinguished and the anger of the commander abated. When that news reached the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam), He said, “If they had entered it (i.e., the fire), they would not have come out of it till the Day Of Resurrection. Obedience (to someone) is required when he enjoins what is Al-Maruf (Islamic Monotheism and all that Islam orders one to do and that is good)
