The virtue of Qurbani/Udhiyah


What is the authenticity of the following Hadiths:

1) There is nothing dearer to Allah during the days of Qurbani than the sacrificing of animals. The sacrificed animal shall come on the Day of Qiyamah with its horns, hair, and hooves (to be weighed on a persons good deeds). The sacrifice is accepted by Allah before the blood reaches the ground. Therefore sacrifice with an open and happy heart.

2) Sayyiduna Zayd ibn Arqam (radiyallahu ‘anhu) relates that the Companions asked,

‘O Messenger of Allah! What is Udhiyah?’ He replied, ‘It is the Sunnah of your father Ibrahim (‘alayhis salam).’ They asked again, ‘What benefit do we get from it?’ He answered, ‘A reward for every hair (of the sacrificed animal).’ ‘And [what reward is there for animals with] wool, O Messenger of Allah?’ they asked. ‘A reward’, he said, ‘for every fiber of the wool.’

Rasulullah (sallallahu 'alayhi wa sallam) removing a jinn from a Sahabi?


 Is there any such Hadith which states that a woman approached Nabi (sallallau ‘alayhi wa sallam) with her sick son. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said, bring the boy close to him. So he was brought to him. He (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) spat into the boy’s mouth and said, come out, enemy of Allah. Then, a puppy came out of the mouth of the boy and ran away, and he was cured.

‘The Scholars of this Ummah like the Ambiya of the Banu Israel’ a Hadith?


The Hadith:

  علماء أمتي كأنبياء بني إسرائيل 

Translation: The scholars of my ummah are like the Prophets of Bani Israel

Sayyidina Musa (alayhis salam) said to the the the Prophet, Imam al Ambiya, the leader of the mankid and the Jinn (sall allahu alayhi wa sallam): “You have said that the scholars of my ummah are like the Prophets of Bani Israel”, so (please) show me one such scholar. The Prophet (sall allahu alayhi wa sallam) pointed towards Imam Ghazali (Rh) and said “Him”
