عن أبي هريرة، قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: «إنَّ الشمسَ لم تُحْبَس على بشر إلا ليُوشَع ليالي سار إلى بيت المَقْدِس».
[صحيح.] - [رواه أحمد، وأصله في الصحيحين.]
المزيــد ...

Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) reported that the Prophet (may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him) said: ''The sun was never held (from setting) for any human except Yūsha‘, on the nights he marched to Jerusalem.''
[Sahih/Authentic] - [Ahmad]

Explanation

The sun has never been stopped from running in its orbit for any human being except for Yūsha‘ ibn Nūn (the servant of Moses, who traveled with him to Al-Khidr), when he marched to Jerusalem. He feared that the sun would set before he could enter the city on Friday. If the sun had set, he would enter on Saturday, on which fighting was forbidden. So, he said to the sun: ''You are commanded, and so am I. O Allah, hold it (from setting).'' So the sun stopped for him until he entered Jerusalem.
