Juraij had got constructed a temple and confined himself in that. His mother came to him as he was busy in prayer and she said:
   Juraij.
He said:
   My Lord, my mother (is calling me while I am engaged in) my prayer. He continued with the prayer.

She returned and she came on the next day and he was busy in prayer, and she said:
   Juraij.
And he said:
   My Lord, my mother (is calling me while I am engaged) in prayer, and he continued with the prayer and she went back, and then on the next day she again came and he was busy in prayer and she said:
   Juraij.
And he said:
   My Lord, my mother (is calling me while I am engaged in my prayer, and he continued with the prayer,
and she said:
  My Lord, don't give him death unless he has seen the fate of the prostitutes.

The story of Juraij and that of his meditation and prayer gained currency amongst Bani Isra'il (Israelites). There was a prostitute who had been a beauty incarnate. She said (to the people):
  If you like I can allure him to evil.
She presented herself to him but he paid no heed (to her). She came to a shepherd who lived near the temple and she offered herself to him and he had a sexual intercourse with her and so she became pregnant and when she gave birth to a child she said:
  This is from Juraij.
So they came and asked him to get down and demolished the temple and began to beat him. He said:
  What is the matter?
They said:
  You have committed fornication with this prostitute and she has given birth to a child from your loins.
He said:
  Where is the child ?

They brought him (the child) and he said:
  just leave me so that I should observe prayer.
And he observed prayer and when he finished, he came to the child. He struck his stomach and said:
  O boy, who is your father?
The child said:
  He is such shepherd.
So they turned towards Juraij, kissed him and touched him (for seeking blessing) and said:
  We are prepared to construct your temple with gold.
He said. No, just rebuild it with mud as it had been, and they did that.
