She was fair with a touch of rose colour on her face, her hair was black and she resembled Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) more closely than anyone else.’ She then recited some couplets of poetry”

Question

1.What is status of following Hadith?

لما خلق الله العقل قال له: قم، فقام، ثم قال له: أدبر، فأدبر، ثم قال له: أقبل، فأقبل، ثم قال له: اقعد، فقعد، فقال: ما خلقت خلقاً هو خير منك، ولا أفضل منك، ولا أحسن منك، ولا أكرم منك، بك آخذ، وبك أعطي، وبك أعرف، لك الثواب، وعليك العقاب

2.Hafiz Ibn Hajar (rahimahullah) has not indicated any kalam on it in Mishkat’s takhrij. Does it mean it is hasan according to him? While it is stated in Fathul Bari:

 وَأَمَّا حَدِيثُ أَوَّلُ مَا خَلَقَ اللَّهُ الْعَقْلُ فَلَيْسَ لَهُ طَرِيقٌ ثَبْتٌ وَعَلَى تَقْدِيرِ ثُبُوتِهِ فَهَذَا التَّقْدِيرُ الْأَخِيرُ هُوَ تَأْوِيلُهُ وَاللَّهُ أَعْلَمُ

The incident of Zubayr ibn Al ‘Awwam (radiyallahu ‘anhu) and the canal

Question

Is this narration authentic?

‘Urwah said, “A man from the Ansar quarrelled with Zubayr ibn Al ‘Awwam (radiyallahu ‘anhu) in the presence of Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) about about a stream/canal which both of them used for irrigation. The Ansari said, ‘Let the water through,’ but Zubayr (radiyallahu ‘anhu) refused to do so. So they brought their case to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam). Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) told Zubayr (radiyallahu ‘anhu), ‘Zubayr, irrigate, and then let the water pass through to your neighbour.’ The Ansari became angry and said, ‘[Have you passed this ruling] because he is your aunt’s son?’ The face of Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) changed colour and then he said, ‘Irrigate O Zubayr, and then retain the water until it reaches the wall.’ Zubayr (radiyallahu ‘anhu) said, ‘By Allah, I think that this Verse was revealed regarding this incident, “No, by your Rabb, they are not believers until they make you their judge in the disputes that break out between them.”‘ (Surah Nisa, Verse: 65)
