Nabi’s (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) daughter’s request

Question

Which daughter of the Prophet (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) does the following Hadith refer to and why did he refuse to go in the first instance?

Usama (radiyallahu ‘anhu) said: ‘Once, one of the daughters of the Prophet (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) sent a message to him while we were with him. In the message she wrote, ‘My child is going to die; please come.’ Allah’s Messenger (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) sent his reply saying, ‘Whatever Allah takes is for Him and whatever He gives is for Him, and everything with Him has a limited time in this world. Therefore, you should be patient and hope for Allah’s reward.’ Read More »

Explanation of when the missed ‘Asr Salah was performed

Question

In the two narrations below, one Hadith seems to indicate that the missed ‘Asr Salah was read after the Maghrib Salah whilst the other indicates that the missed ‘Asr Salah was read before the Maghrib Salah. What is the explanation and/or tatbiq for this?

عن على رضي الله عنه قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم يوم الأحزاب: شغلونا عن الصلاة الوسطى صلاة العصر ملأ الله بيوتهم وقبورهم نارا، ثم صلاها بين العشاءين، بين المغرب والعشاء.

(Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 627)

 

عن جابر بن عبد الله رضي الله عنه: أن عمر بن الخطاب يوم الخندق جعل يسب كفار قريش وقال: يا رسول الله، والله ما كدت أن أصلي العصر حتى كادت أن تغرب الشمس، فقال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: فوالله إن صليتها، فنزلنا إلى بطحان فتوضأ رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم وتوضأنا، فصلى رسول الله -صلى الله عليه وسلم العصر بعد ما غربت الشمس ثم صلى بعدها المغرب

Iman being taken away

Question

I have a question with regards to the following Hadith in Mishkah:

عن حذيفة رضي الله عنه قال : حدثنا رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم حديثين رأيت أحدهما وأنا أنتظر الآخر ، حدثنا أن الأمانة نزلت في جذر قلوب الرجال ثم علموا من القرآن ثم علموا من السنة وحدثنا عن رفعها قال ينام الرجل النومة فتقبض الأمانة من قلبه فيظل أثرها مثل أثر الوكت ثم ينام النومة فتقبض فيبقى أثرها مثل المجل كجمر دحرجته على رجلك فنفط فتراه منتبرا وليس فيه شيء فيصبح الناس يتبايعون فلا يكاد أحد يؤدي الأمانة فيقال إن في بني فلان رجلا أمينا ويقال للرجل ما أعقله وما أظرفه وما أجلده وما في قلبه مثقال حبة خردل من إيمان ، ولقد أتى علي زمان وما أبالي أيكم بايعت لئن كان مسلما رده علي الإسلام وإن كان نصرانيا رده علي ساعيه فأما اليوم فما كنت أبايع إلا فلانا وفلانا.

 

My question relates to the following portion of the Hadith:

“ينام الرجل النومة فتقبض الأمانة من قلبه فيظل أثرها مثل أثر الوكت ثم ينام النومة فتقبض فيبقى أثرها مثل المجل كجمر دحرجته على رجلك فنفط فتراه منتبرا وليس فيه شيء”

 

I do not understand the connection between the two instances of the person going to sleep. Do these blessed words of the Prophet (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) mean that when Iman was first taken out, it was less compared to when it was taken out for the second time? If so, then how do these words explain this meaning as the effect of the remaining Iman in the second instance is more in size than the first instance?

Duration of Imam Mahdi’s rule

Question

Please inform me on the correct amount of years that the Mahdi will rule for taking into consideration the following Hadiths:

1. “Indeed there will be a Mahdi who comes in my Ummah (ruling) living for five, or seven, or nine.” – Zaid was the one in doubt – He said: “We said: What is that?” He said: “Years.” He said: “A man will come to him and say: O Mahdi! ‘Give to me, give to me! So he will fill in his garment whatever he is able to carry.”’

(Jami’ut-Tirmidhi, Hadith: 2232)

 

2. “The Mahdi will be among my nation. If he lives for a short period, it will be seven, and if he lives for a long period, it will be nine, during which my nation will enjoy a time of ease such as it has never enjoyed. The land will bring forth its yield and will not hold back anything, and wealth at that time will be piled up. A man will stand up and say: ‘O Mahdi, give me!’ He will say: ‘Take.”’

(Sunan ibn Majah, Hadith: 4039)

 

3. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) said: ‘The Mahdi will be of my stock, and will have a broad forehead, a prominent nose. He will fill the earth with equity and justice as it was filled with oppression and tyranny, and he will rule for seven years.’

(Sunan Abi Dawud, Hadith: 4285)

 

I wanted to know the correct amount of years that the Mahdi will rule for according to scholars since five, seven and nine years are all mentioned. Read More »
