Book 023, Number 4995:
Jabir b. 'Abdullah reported Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) having said: When the wings of the night (spread) or it is night, restrain your children (from going out), for the Satan is abroad at that time, and when a part of the night is passed, free them and shut the doors. making mention of God's name, for the Satan does not open a closed door; and tighten the (mouths of waterskins and mention the name of Allah, cover your utensils and mention the name of Allah even though you should just put something on them, and extinguish your lamps.
Sahih Muslim Book 023, Number 4993: Jabir reported Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: Shut the doors; the rest of the hadith is the same but with a slight variation of wording: Cover the utensils, and further said: It (the mouse) may set fire to the clothes of the residents of the house.
Sahih Muslim Book 023, Number 4994: This hadith has been reported on the authority of Jabir through another chain of transmitters but with a slight variation of words:" The mouse may set the house on fire over its inhabitants."
Mohammad (Peace be unto him) knew mice well. First we learn the the lost tribes of Israel devolved into mice, and you can tell which mouse is a Jew or not by placing a bowl of camel milk in front of it; http://muslimhadith.blogspot.com/2009/04/lost-tribes-of-israel-proof-that.html; and second, if a mouse falls in butter, the butter is still clean if you throw away the mouse;
Now Mohammad (Peace be unto him) said that when you go to bed, close your door otherwise mice may burn your house down.
Prophet Mohammad (Peace be unto him) knew that burglars and vandals come in all shapes and sizes.
1) Is Mohammad (Peace be unto him), subconsciously saying he hates Jews where He (Peace be unto him) already equated Jews with mice and now mice with vandals that burn houses down?
2) Does Mohammad's (Peace be unto him) security system work much the same way he gives sound business advise? http://muslimhadith.blogspot.com/2008/05/when-you-bargain-say-no-cheating.html
a) If a mouse is already in your house, how will closing the door help?
3) And finally, a more pressing set of questions:
a) How do mice have the ability to set houses on fire?
b) Do they have the ability to make fire?
c) Did a mouse version of Prometheus (Greek mythology - first human to get fire) come to all mice and teach them how to make fire?
d) Are mice as capable of rationale thought as humans?
e) How would Mohammad (Peace be unto him) know?
i) Is it the same way Mohammad (Peace be unto him) knew about how "a man was riding a cow, it turned towards him and said, 'I have not been created for this purpose (i.e. carrying), I have been created for sloughing." http://muslimhadith.blogspot.com/2008/06/guy-converts-to-islam-after-wolf-ate_23.html
