Question :

would it be possible to tell me where the kalimas are derived from? you know the 7 kalimas that we are taught from young? I guess they are derived from the quraan and the hadith but what I’d like to know is who compiled them in that form and called them the kalimas? I mean why do we have 7 and not 8? is there any virtue in reciting for example the 5th kalima? I totally accept them and read them with conviction.

Is this Hadith really in Bukhari?

Question

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.
