Allah`s Apostle (SAW) said, “Who would kill Kab bin Al-Ashraf as he has harmed Allah and His Apostle (SAW) ?” Muhammad bin Maslama (got up and) said, “I will kill him.” So, Muhammad bin Maslama went to Kab and said, “I want a loan of one or two Wasqs of food grains.” Kab said, “Mortgage your women to me.” Muhammad bin Maslama said, “How can we mortgage our women, and you are the most handsome among the Arabs?” He said, “Then mortgage your sons to me.” Muhammad said, “How can we mortgage our sons, as the people will abuse them for being mortgaged for one or two Wasqs of food grains? It is shameful for us. But we will mortgage our arms to you.” So, Muhammad bin Maslama promised him that he would come to him next time. They (Muhammad bin Maslama and his companions) came to him as promised and murdered him. Then they went to the Prophet (SAW) and told him about it.

Abdullah (bin Masud) said, “Whoever took a false oath in order to grab somebody`s property will meet Allah while Allah will be angry with him.” Allah revealed the following verse to confirm that: “Verily! Those who purchase a small gain at the cost of Allah`s covenant And their oaths…a painful torment.” (3.77)Al-Ashath bin Qais came to us and asked as to what Abu Abdur-Rahman (i.e. Ibn Masud) was telling you.” We related the story to him. On that he said, “He has told the truth. This verse was revealed about me. I had some dispute with another man regarding a well and we took the case before Allah`s Apostle (SAW). Allah`s Apostle (SAW) said (to me), “Produce two witnesses (to support your claim); otherwise the defendant has the right to take an oath (to refute your claim).` I said, “The defendant would not mind to take a false oath.” Allah`s Apostle (SAW) then said, `Whoever took a false oath in order to grab someone else`s property will meet Allah, Allah will be angry with him.` Allah then revealed what Confirmed it.” Al-Ashath then recited the following Verse: “Verily! Those who purchase a small gain at the cost of Allah`s covenant, And their oaths . . . (to) . . . they shall have a painful torment!` (3.77) (See Hadith No. 552)
