Sahabi poking his wife?


I heard an incident of a Sahabi (radiyallahu’anhu) poking his wife while making salah.

The speaker mentions the meaning of the Hadith: ‘Make salah in the innermost place in your room’ is to stop the Sahabi (radiyallahu ‘anhu) from poking his wife while she is making salah. The Hadith means that as her husband is very jealous so she must make salah in her house to save her marriage before going to Masjid.

Is this narration of the Sahabi (radiyallahu ‘anhu) poking his wife authentic?

Short form of Durud [salutations] and Istighfar


I would like to know which is the smallest durud [salutations] and istighfar which one can recite everyday.

Normally in durud [salutations] I recite only “sallallahu ‘alayhi wassalam” and in istighfar  “astaghfirullah”. Is it okay to recite only this much? Read More »

Difference of opinion on Hadith grading


What should an individual practice upon after being told that one specific Hadith is not okay for practice, although others have said that it is okay to practice upon?

The Hadith I’m referring to is the one you posted regarding the first 10 days of Dhul Hijjah, fasting a day being equivalent to fasting a year and praying at night is equivalent to the worship of the Night of Qadr.

My question is what should one practice upon when he hears two conflicting answers, also why is it that there is such a huge difference of opinion on the grading of Hadiths? Read More »
