Another du’a for after wudu

Question

I believe this is from Nasai, is it authentic?

 اللَّهُمَّ اجْعَلْنِي مِنَ التَّوَّابِينَ وَاجْعَلْنِي مِنَ الْمُتَطَهِّرِينَ

Allahummaj ‘alni minat-tawwabina waj’alni minal-mutatahhirin.

O Allah, make me among those who turn to You in repentance, and make me among those who are purified.

 

This is the extra verse I was referring to in this question, I’m sure it’s in the second juz. http://www.hadithanswers.com/reciting-the-shahadah-after-wudu/

Authenticity of the du'a 'Ya Man Azharal Jamil'

Question

I want to ask about the Du’a recorded by Imam Hakim in his Mustadrak: “Ya man azhar aljamil…”

In Al-Asma wal-Sifat of Imam Bayhaqi he states:

“wa huwa du’aun hasanun wa fee sihatihi ‘an Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) nazarun”

The narration states that Jibrail had come down and told Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) that Allah has sent down a gift to you, the gift being this du’a.

Entering Jannah or Jahannam because of a fly

Question

 

Is the following narration authentic?

“A man entered Jannah because of a fly, while another entered Jahannam because of a fly. “Two men passed by a people who had an idol, which it was not permissible for anyone to pass without making a sacrifice to it. They [the people] said to the first man: “Sacrifice [something in the name of the idol]. He said: “I will not sacrifice anything unless it be to Allah so they struck his neck (and he died) and entered Jannah”

Then they said to the second man:  “Sacrifice [something].” He said: “I have nothing with which to do so.” They said: “Sacrifice something, even if it were only a fly,” and so he did so, and they allowed him to continue on his way and so he entered Jahannam”
