Sitting and drinking water

Question

Looking at the narrations below, what is the Sunnah?

To stand and drink, or to sit whilst drinking?

a) Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) said “No person should stand and drink water, and if one forgetfully stood and drank it, it should be vomited out” (Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 2026)

b) Imam Ahmad narrated that Sayyiduna ‘Ali ibn Abi Talib (radiyallahu ‘anhu) drank whilst standing, and the people looked at him as if they objected to that. He said: ‘What are you looking at? If I drink whilst standing, I saw Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) drink whilst standing, and if I drink sitting, I saw Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) drink whilst sitting.’

Imam Bukhari (Hadith: 5615) narrated from Sayyiduna ‘Ali (radiyallahu ‘anhu) that he drank whilst standing then he said: ‘Some people say it is makruh [disliked] for one of you to drink whilst standing, but I saw Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) doing what you have seen me do.’

The Famous Hadith on the benefit of salutations on Nabi (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam)

Question

The famous Hadith of Ubay ibn Ka’b on salawat on the Prophet (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam):

عنه قال: قال رجل: يا رسول الله أرأيت إن جعلت صلواتي كلها عليك؟ قال: إذا يكفيك الله تبارك وتعالى ما أهمك من دنياك وآخرتك. قال المنذري: وإسناد هذه جيد. انتهى. قال القاري: وللحديث روايات كثيرة، وفي رواية قال: “إني أصلي من الليل” بدل “أكثر الصلاة عليك” فعلى هذا قوله فكم أجعل لك من صلاتي أي بدل صلاتي من الليل. انتهى.

1. I have seen this Hadith graded sahih, hasan, and even weak by different contemporary scholars which is a wide range of gradings. What is the grading of this Hadith bearing in mind that there are a number of shawahid that are similar as cited by Imam Sakhawi?

2. What is the response to those who consider this Hadith weak because of the narrator Muhammad ibn ‘Abdillah ibn ‘Aqil who apparently the majority say is weak?

3. When you look at the other chains without him having the same or almost similar wording is that a response to their claims? With all of the different chains wouldn’t it at the very least be hasan lighayrihi?

It is very important to know the accuracy of this Hadith in detail as it is the basis of the practice of many people in sending salawat for the relief of their worries.
