عن عبدالله بن عمر: اجْعَلُوا آخِرَ صَلاتِكُمْ باللَّيْلِ وِتْرًا

عن عائشة أم المؤمنين: سَأَلْتُ عائِشَةَ، عن صَلاةِ رَسولِ اللهِ ﷺ، فَقالَتْ: كانَ يُصَلِّي ثَلاثَ عَشْرَةَ رَكْعَةً، يُصَلِّي ثَمانَ رَكَعاتٍ، ثُمَّ يُوتِرُ، ثُمَّ يُصَلِّي رَكْعَتَيْنِ وَهو جالِسٌ، فَإِذا أَرادَ أَنْ يَرْكَعَ قامَ فَرَكَعَ، ثُمَّ يُصَلِّي رَكْعَتَيْنِ بيْنَ النِّداءِ والإِقامَةِ مِن صَلاةِ الصُّبْحِ

كما حدثنا أحمد بنُ شُعيب قال: حدثنا أبو عوانة، عن سليمان – يعني الأعمش – قال: حدثنا حبيب بن أبي ثابت، عن أبي الطفيل، عن زيد بن أرقم قال
لما رجع رسول الله عن حجة الوداع ونزل بغدير خم أمر بدوحات فقممن ثم قال :« كأني دعيت فأجبت إني قد تركت فيكم الثقلين أحدهما أكبر من الآخر كتاب الله عزّ وجل وعترتي أهل بيتي فانظروا كيف تخلفوني فيهما فإنهما لن يفترقا حتى يردا علي الحوض
ثم قال الطحاوي :  فهذا الحديث صحيح الإسناد لا طعن لأحد في أحد من رواته

However Imam Tahawi (rahimahullah) declares this chain as Sahih, but is it proven Habib ibn Abi Thabit heard from Sayyiduna Abut Tufayl (radiyallahu’anhu)?

Explanation of the words: Children of Isma’il (ولد إسماعيل)

Question

I have come across this statement in a few Hadiths wherein Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) mentions that the virtue of a certain action is like emancipating a slave from the children of Nabi Isma’il (‘alayhis salam).

For example, Imam Muslim narrates:

من قال: لا إله إلا الله وحده لا شريك له، له الملك وله الحمد وهو على كل شيء قدير، عشر مرار كان كمن أعتق أربعة أنفس من ولد إسماعيل

1. What exactly is the virtue or status of the children of Nabi Isma’il (‘alayhis salam) that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) has made specific mention of them?

2. The virtue of freeing a slave is that Allah Ta’ala will free every limb of a person from Jahannam. Nowadays, achieving this reward is somewhat impossible as slavery does not really exist, hence if a person were to act upon the above Hadith and similar ones, would he be getting the same virtue as physically freeing a slave?
