Qiyamah occurring on a Friday

Question

Is the following Hadith correct?

Also is the interpretation correct; that the black dot is the referring to Qiyamah?

The Messenger of Allah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“The days were shown to me, and among them Friday was shown to me. It looked like a shiny mirror in the middle of which was a black spot. I asked, ‘What is this?’ It was said, ‘The Hour.'”

Friday is a special day whose virtues have been extolled in the Hadith. Friday has been likened in this hadith to a gleaming mirror. The only thing that mars the beauty of Friday is the fact that it is also the day on which the Hour will commence. Because of this, every Friday, all creatures (apart from humans and jinn) are filled with fear in case this particular Friday be the one on which the Trumpet is blown. Jazakallah

Objection on the famous story of Harith bin Malik (radiyallahu’anhu)

Question

In the daily Ta`lim, the narration was read from Muntakhab Ahadith regarding Harith ibn Malik (radiyallahu ‘anhu) replying to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) that he is a true mu’min.

A brother asked in front of everyone about the authenticity of the narration after it was read. He said that the part of ‘turning oneself away from the world’ seemed doubtful (to him) because, in the more literal sense, that is not necessary in Islam.

Please (1) comment on the authenticity of the narration and (2) likewise give an explanation of the part referring to ‘turning away from the world’.

A person asked me about the folding of trousers. He said he has read in Bukhari that you cannot fold the trouser.

In the first place ankles have to be open but if it is covered then it he should fold the trousers.

Is this correct?

For example, in Sunan Tirmidhi, Nabi (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam) said:

“The Muslim is the one from whose tongue and hand Muslims are safe, and the believer is the one with whom the people trust their blood and their wealth.”

Would you kindly enlighten me on the differences?
