Hadith on Quran: Revelation of last verses of Ali ‘Imran

Aisha reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon, said to me on one of my nights, “O Aisha, leave me to worship my Lord tonight.” I said, “By Allah, I love to be close to you and I love what pleases you.” The Prophet stood up and performed ablution, then stood in prayer. He did not stop weeping until it was moist around his eyes. Then, he wept and he did not stop weeping until his beard was moist. Then, he wept and he did not stop weeping until the ground was moist. Bilal came and announced the call to prayer. When he saw the Prophet weeping, he said, “O Messenger of Allah, why are you weeping when Allah has forgiven you for what you have done and what you will do?” The Prophet said, “Shall I not be a grateful servant? A verse has been revealed to me tonight and woe to one who reads it without reflecting upon it: Verily, in the creation of the heavens and the earth, and the alternation of the night and day, are signs for those of understanding.” (3:190)

عَنْ عَائِشَةَ قَالَتْ لَمَّا كَانَ لَيْلَةٌ مِنَ اللَّيَالِي قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم يَا عَائِشَةُ ذَرِينِي أَتَعَبَّدُ اللَّيْلَةَ لِرَبِّي قُلْتُ وَاللَّهِ إِنِّي لَأُحِبُّ قُرْبَكَ وَأُحِبُّ مَا سَرَّكَ قَالَتْ فَقَامَ فَتَطَهَّرَ ثُمَّ قَامَ يُصَلِّي فَلَمْ يَزَلْ يَبْكِي حَتَّى بَلَّ حِجْرَهُ ثُمَّ بَكَى فَلَمْ يَزَلْ يَبْكِي حَتَّى بَلَّ لِحْيَتَهُ ثُمَّ بَكَى فَلَمْ يَزَلْ يَبْكِي حَتَّى بَلَّ الْأَرْضَ فَجَاءَ بِلَالٌ يُؤْذِنُهُ بِالصَّلَاةِ فَلَمَّا رَآهُ يَبْكِي قَالَ يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ لِمَ تَبْكِي وَقَدْ غَفَرَ اللَّهُ لَكَ مَا تَقَدَّمَ وَمَا تَأَخَّرَ قَالَ أَفَلَا أَكُونُ عَبْدًا شَكُورًا لَقَدْ نَزَلَتْ عَلَيَّ اللَّيْلَةَ آيَةٌ وَيْلٌ لِمَنْ قَرَأَهَا وَلَمْ يَتَفَكَّرْ فِيهَا إِنَّ فِي خَلْقِ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ وَاخْتِلَافِ اللَّيْلِ وَالنَّهَارِ لَآيَاتٍ لِّأُولِي الْأَلْبَابِ
