In our home, we read Hayatus Sahaba every alternative morning after fajr salah.
Yesterday We were reading thenarration below of Hadhrat Raafi bin Khadeej (RA).
The incident is translated only partially. My friends were surprised at this.

Q1. Pl give the full incident.

Q2. Please explain the wisdom behind translating only the portion of incident and not translating the remaining.
Q3. I have heard from my friends that Hayatus Sahaba does not contain any week narrations. But I want to get it confirmed from yourself (to make my heart at peace), As a translator, please confirm with me that all 3 volumes does not contain week narrations.

Hayatus Sahaba Vol-2, page 377.
The Narration of Hadhrat Raafi bin Khadeej (RA)
Hadhrat Raafi bin Khadeej says, “My uncle came home one day and said
to me, ‘Today Rasulullaah had forbidden us from something that has been
very beneficial for you. However, obedience to Allaah and His Rasulullaah is
even more beneficial for you … ” The rest of the narration concerns hiring out
property. (1) Abdur Razzaaq, as quoted in Kanzul Ummaal (Vol. 8 Pg.73).
