The list of people who will receive the shade of the ‘Arsh of Allah

Question

It is a famous Hadith (in a single Hadith) mentioned about seven categories of people who will under the shade of Allah when there is shade except His.

However, if I recalled correctly Imam Ghazali (rahimahullah) has mentioned in his book:

مكاشفة القلوب المقرب إلى حضرة علام الغيوب

There are around forty (40) categories of people in total who will be under His shade in varies Hadiths. However in the translation of the book which I read, it does not list it. Could you please list it out as you did for ‘Examples of such Shahids are many‘. Read More »

Difference in wording of a du’a in Riyadus Salihin

Question

I came across the following du’a in two places: Tirmidhi (3502) and Riyadus Salihin (834).

Tirmidhi:

اللَّهُمَّ اقْسِمْ لَنَا مِنْ خَشْيَتِكَ مَا يَحُولُ بَيْنَنَا وَبَيْنَ مَعَاصِيكَ وَمِنْ طَاعَتِكَ مَا تُبَلِّغُنَا بِهِ جَنَّتَكَ وَمِنَ الْيَقِينِ مَا تُهَوِّنُ بِهِ عَلَيْنَا مُصِيبَاتِ الدُّنْيَا وَمَتِّعْنَا بِأَسْمَاعِنَا وَأَبْصَارِنَا وَقُوَّتِنَا مَا أَحْيَيْتَنَا وَاجْعَلْهُ الْوَارِثَ مِنَّا وَاجْعَلْ ثَأْرَنَا عَلَى مَنْ ظَلَمَنَا وَانْصُرْنَا عَلَى مَنْ عَادَانَا وَلاَ تَجْعَلْ مُصِيبَتَنَا فِي دِينِنَا وَلاَ تَجْعَلِ الدُّنْيَا أَكْبَرَ هَمِّنَا وَلاَ مَبْلَغَ عِلْمِنَا وَلاَ تُسَلِّطْ عَلَيْنَا مَنْ لاَ يَرْحَمُنَا ‏”‏ ‏

Riyadus Salihin:

اللهم اقسم لنا من خشيتك ما تحول به بيننا وبين معاصيك، ومن طاعتك ما تبلغنا به جنتك، ومن اليقين ما تهون به علينا مصائب الدنيا، اللهم متعنا بأسماعنا وأبصارنا وقوتنا ما أحييتنا، واجعله الوارث منا، واجعل ثأرنا على من ظلمنا، وانصرنا على من عادانا، ولا تجعل مصيبتنا في ديننا، ولا تجعل الدنيا أكبر همنا، ولا مبلغ علمنا، ولا تسلط علينا من لا يرحمنا

a) The riwayah of Tirmidhi contains the word مصيبات while the riwayah of Riyadus Salihin (which quotes Tirmidhi) contains مصائب. Which is the correct version?

b) Also the riwayah of Tirmidhi contains و متّعنا while the riwayah of Riyadus Salihin contains اللهم متّعنا. Which is the correct version?

The curse of Sayyiduna Sa’id ibn Zayd (radiyallahu’anhu)

Question

I came across in a lecture that a woman (by name of Asma) got into a land dispute with Sayyiduna Sa’id Ibn Zayd (radiyallahu’anhu) regarding a piece of land. Eventually Sayyiduna Sa’id Ibn Zayd (radiyallahu’anhu) relented and even though he believed it was his land, he let Asma have the land but he made a du’a to Allah that if she was of the liars and making false claims then she should die on the very land she has falsely taken from Sayyiduna Sa’id Ibn Zayd (radiyallahu’anhu). Eventually, the woman fell into a well in that very land she obtained. Could you please quote the full narration/story(because I might have missed some points) from beginning to end with the source and authenticity?

Our Nabi’s (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) generosity

Question

Is there a Hadith which states:

Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) received a garment from someone. When he wore it and came out, someone from the Sahabah (radiyallahu ‘anhum) saw him and he asked Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) for it. Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) immediately went to his house, wore his old clothes and gave the Sahabah (radiyallahu ‘anhum) the new one. The Sahabah (radiyallahu ‘anhum) reprimanded the other Sahabi (radiyallahu ‘anhu) who asked for Nabi’s (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) new dress because Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) would never deny someone’s request. The Sahabi (radiyallahu ‘anhu) said that he had his own reason, to shroud himself in that piece of cloth when he passed away.
