Is this a fabrication in Fadail-A'mal?

Question

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?

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. 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.

Could you please inform what is the academic status of these two hadiths:

Fadail A'mal mentions Kashf, is this shirk?

Question

In the book: Fada’il al-A’mal, first edition 1994 of the English translation. On the end of page 21  of Virtues of Salah, you will find the words ascribing kasha of  “seeing sins falling down from the limbs of the person performing wudu…” to Imam Abu Hanifah (rahimahullah). Kashf means, in Khandhlawi’s own words, “divine manifestation of unseen things”(pg.128 of Virtues of Dhikr).

Muslims know that seeing the unseen (ghayb) is only possible to Allah, and the claim and lie that people are able to do such things is clear shirk. And on top of that it is a lie on Imam Abu Hanifah (rahimahullah).

Hadith on wigs

Question

Ibn ‘Umar (radiyallahu ‘anhuma) narrated that Rasulullah (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam) said, “May the curse of Allah be on the women who joins (another person’s) hair (to her own) and the one who asks for tattoos. (Sahih Bukhari)

Some Muslims consider it permissible to buy false or animal hair and braid it into their own. Does the above Hadith apply in the stated case?

I read a Hadith in Sahih Bukhari that mentions that Hamzah (radiyallahu’anhu) was drunk with some Ansar in an Ansari house. The Prophet (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam) and his companions saw him and told him not to do that. Is this correct and how did the Sahabah consume wine?
