Composure of a Sahabiyyah at the time of calamity

Question

Please comment om theto authenticity of this narration:

The son of Ummu Khallaad (رضي الله عنها) was martyred. When she heard about it she came to Rasulullah (صلي الله عليه وسلم) to enquire about his position and reward. Despite being afflicted by the great tragedy of losing her son, her face was still covered with a niqaab (veil/purdah).
A Sahaabi (رضي الله عنه) was quite astonished by this (level of composure) and he remarked: “You have come to enquire about your son (who was martyred) yet you (are so composed that you) have still covered your face (in this tragic moment)?”

She replied:  “I may have lost my son, but I have not lost my modesty.”

عن أبي قتادة الأنصاري: أنَّ رَسولَ اللهِ ﷺ سُئِلَ عن صَوْمِهِ؟ قالَ: فَغَضِبَ رَسولُ اللهِ ﷺ، فَقالَ عُمَرُ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عنْه: رَضِينا باللَّهِ رَبًّا، وَبالإسْلامِ دِينًا، وَبِمُحَمَّدٍ رَسولًا، وَبِبَيْعَتِنا بَيْعَةً. قالَ: فَسُئِلَ عن صِيامِ الدَّهْرِ؟ فَقالَ: لا صامَ وَلا أَفْطَرَ، أَوْ ما صامَ وَما أَفْطَرَ، قالَ: فَسُئِلَ عن صَوْمِ يَومَيْنِ وإفْطارِ يَومٍ؟ قالَ: وَمَن يُطِيقُ ذلكَ؟ قالَ: وَسُئِلَ عن صَوْمِ يَومٍ، وإفْطارِ يَومَيْنِ؟ قالَ: لَيْتَ أنَّ اللَّهَ قَوّانا لِذلكَ قالَ: وَسُئِلَ عن صَوْمِ يَومٍ، وإفْطارِ يَومٍ؟ قالَ: ذاكَ صَوْمُ أَخِي داوُدَ، عليه السَّلام، قالَ: وَسُئِلَ عن صَوْمِ يَومِ الاثْنَيْنِ؟ قالَ: ذاكَ يَوْمٌ وُلِدْتُ فِيهِ، وَيَوْمٌ بُعِثْتُ، أَوْ أُنْزِلَ عَلَيَّ فِيهِ، قالَ: فَقالَ: صَوْمُ ثَلاثَةٍ مِن كُلِّ شَهْرٍ، وَرَمَضانَ إلى رَمَضانَ، صَوْمُ الدَّهْرِ قالَ: وَسُئِلَ عن صَوْمِ يَومِ عَرَفَةَ؟ فَقالَ: يُكَفِّرُ السَّنَةَ الماضِيَةَ والْباقِيَةَ قالَ: وَسُئِلَ عن صَوْمِ يَومِ عاشُوراءَ؟ فَقالَ: يُكَفِّرُ السَّنَةَ الماضِيَةَ. وفي هذا الحَديثِ مِن رِوايَةِ شُعْبَةَ قالَ: وَسُئِلَ عن صَوْمِ يَومِ الاثْنَيْنِ والْخَمِيسِ؟ فَسَكَتْنا عن ذِكْرِ الخَمِيسِ لَمّا نُراهُ وَهْمًا. [وفي رواية]: بمِثْلِ حَديثِ شُعْبَةَ غيرَ أنَّهُ ذَكَرَ فيه الاثْنَيْنِ، وَلَمْ يَذْكُرِ الخَمِيسَ.

Reality of the statement about when a person completes the Quran…

Question

Wanted to know regarding this saying of Sufyan Thawri (rahimahullah)

إذا ختم الرجل القرآن قبل الملك بين عينيه

‘When a man completes the Quran, an angel kisses him between his eyes.’

The kissing of the angel is a thing which cannot be perceived through understanding, but it has not been attributed to Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam).

  1. Can this be regarded as a mursal of a Tabi’?
  2. If so, can it be regarded Hukman marfu’?
  3. If not, can it be regarded as a kashf of Sufyan Thawri? As it has been termed as ‘min mukhabbati Sufyan’ by Imam Ahmad (rahimahullah).
  4. Is it suitable to quote?
