Is this a fabrication in Fadail-A'mal?


A brother sent me and others an email criticizing Fada’il al-A’mal with the following:

In Fada’il al-A’mal you will find that some hadiths have been taken from the book called Dhayl al-‘Ali of Imam Suyuti, which means “Tails Of Pearls”, but in the meantime the real name of the book is Dhayl -La’ali al-Masnu’a fil-Hadithil-Maudu’a which means “Tails of made up pearls in fabricated hadiths”.

There is a hadith on page 142 of Virtues of Dhikr, hadith no.28 which in English tells us about Adam (‘alaihis salam) and how he asked forgiveness from Allah when he saw the Prophet (sallallahu’alaihi wasallam) name on the ’Arsh. Now, if you read the same hadith on the same page in Arabic you will find the word MAWDU’ which we know means fabricated. The same is not translated into English or Urdu for that matter. That is a clear lie on the Prophet (sallallahu’alaihi wasallam)

Is this Hadith really in Bukhari?


Someone came to me and informed me of a sirah bayan he heard. In the bayan, the khatib mentioned a Hadith in which Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) was resting on the thigh of Ali (radiyallahu ‘anhu), and the time of Asr arrived. Ali (radiyallahu ‘anhu) didn’t get up to pray Asr for fear of waking Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam). He used this to claim that hub un-Nabi (love for nabi sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) is greater than Salah. He mentioned that this Hadith is mentioned in Sahih Bukhari.

More merits of Ayatul-Kursi


Could you clarify the authenticity of the following narrations on the virtues of Ayatul Kursi?

1)    Recite Ayatul Kursi at the time of leaving home, because 70 000 angels will protect a person from the right, left, front and back; and if he passes away before returning, he will receive the reward of seventy martyrs.

2)    Recite Ayatul Kursi forty times at the time of sunset daily, because its reciter will receive the reward of forty Hajj.

3)    Recite Ayatul Kursi every night before sleeping, as an angel is appointed to guard the person till the morning.
