How much really will the lowest Jannati receive?

Question

I read two Hadiths regarding the last person to enter Jannah or lowest ranking person to enter Jannah. One Hadith says that person will get “what equals the world and ten times as much.”

In the other Hadith, Nabi Musa (‘alayhis salam) asked Allah Ta’ala who will be the last person to enter Jannah, Allah Ta’ala said that person will get as much kingdom like that of a King of the world.

My question is why does one Hadith say that person will get as much as ten times the world but other Hadith says he will receive the like of a kingdom of a king?

Does Nabi Musa’s (‘alayhis salam) Hadith seems to say he will get less than the size of the world?

Why there are differences between both Hadiths for the last person to enter Jannah? Read More »

A lengthy narration on the virtues of Salatud Duha

Question

What is the authenticity of the following Hadith?

Sayyiduna Abud Darda (radiyallahu ‘anhu) narrates that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) said:

‘Whosoever offers two rak’ahs of Salatud Duha (chasht) cannot be counted among the indolent. One who offers four rak’ahs is among the devotees. Those who offer six rak’ahs at chasht are made immune from all the worries for the whole day. Those who offer eight rak’ahs are recorded among the pious. One offering twelve rak’ahs has his house built in Jannah.

A strange incident of a woman in the time of Sayyidah ‘Aaishah (radiyallahu’anha)

Question

What is the authenticity of this incident?

A woman whose hand was paralysed entered upon ‘Aaishah (radiyallahu ‘anha). She said, “O Mother of the Believers, I went to sleep yesterday and my hand was healthy and I woke up and it was paralysed.

‘Aaishah said, “How is that?”

She replied, “I had wealthy parents and my father used to pay zakah, host guests and give to beggars and he did not see any good except that he would do it.

As for my mother, she was stingy and did nothing good with my father’s wealth. Then my father died and my mother died only two months after him.

So I saw my father in a dream last night and he was wearing two yellow garments and in front of him was a flowing river.

I said, “Father, what is this?’

He said, “Whoever does good in this life will see it, this is what Allah has given me.”

I asked him, “What has happened to my mother?” He asked, “ Your Mother died?”

I said, “Yes”

He said, “She has been turned away from me, so look for her on your left”

So I turned to my left and I saw my mother standing naked, covering her lower half with a rag and in her hand was a piece of fat.

She was calling out, “My sadness, my thirst.’

When she became tired she would rub the fat with her hand and then lick it, while in front of her was a flowing river.

I said, ‘O mother, why are you crying out of thirst and there is a flowing river in front of you?’

She said, ‘I am not allowed to drink from it.’

I said, ‘Can I give you some of the water?’

She said, ‘I wish you would do that.’ So I filled my hand with water and let her drink and when she swallowed it I heard a voice on my right, ‘Whoever has given this woman water, may his hand be paralysed and they repeated it twice.

Then I awoke and my hand was paralysed and I am not able to do anything with it.

‘Aaishah (radiyallahu ‘anha) asked: ‘Did you recognise the rag she was wearing?’

I said, ‘Yes, O Mother of the Believers, it was exactly the same one I saw her wearing, for I had never seen my mother give anything as charity, except that one day my Father slaughtered a bull. So a beggar came to ask for some, so my mother gave him a bone that had some fat on it. And I saw one day that a beggar asked her for charity, so she gave him that exact rag.’

‘Aaishah (radiyallahu ‘anha) said, ‘Allah is the Most Great! Allah has told the truth and the Messenger (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) has delivered the message.

فَمَن يَعْمَلْ مِثْقَالَ ذَرَّةٍ خَيْرًا يَرَهُ
وَمَن يَعْمَلْ مِثْقَالَ ذَرَّةٍ شَرًّا يَرَهُ
