The basis for the "Kalimahs"

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. I’m just curious to know how they came about in a systematic formation. your brother in islam.

The Hadith that promises seventy three favours for humanitarian aid

Question

I asked lots of scholars about the Hadith:

“If one fulfills one need of a muslim Allah Taa’la will give him seventy three favours. One is sufficient for all the needs in this world and seventy two will be used to raise his stages in the hereafter”

The rewards and warnings for fajr salah

Question

Is there any reward mentioned in the Hadith for Fajr in congregation? Is there any warnings in the Hadith for not reading Fajr in congregation.

So will we be worse than the hypocrites if we do not go to masjid for Fajr?
