The basis for the kalimahs

Question

Would it be possible to tell me where the seven kalimahs are derived from? You know the seven kalimahs that we are taught from young? I guess they are derived from the Quran and the Hadith but what I’d like to know is who compiled them in that form and called them the kalimahs? I mean why do we have seven and not eight? I’m curious to know how they came about in a systematic formation.

Correct translation of a hadith

Question

Insha Allah you are well. I read the undermentioned translation of a hadith:

Ibn Abbas reported: I was riding with the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, and he said, “Know that there is much good in patience with what you dislike, that support will come with patience, relief will come with affliction, and hardship will come with ease. (Musnad Ahmad)

and I am not sure of the meaning of the underlined portion: and hardship will come with ease”

Could you please explain the meaning of this? Also, could you please send me the Arabic text?

Jazakumullah,

Du'as in the book "Hisnul Muslim" (A Muslim's fortress)

Question

I have a question in regards to a book I have, called “The fortress of the Muslim Invocations from the Quran and sunnah”

It was complied by Sa’id bin Wahf Al-Qahtani. There are many DUAS is this book and I’m not sure how Sahih any of them are. There are Hadiths related by Al-Bukhari, Muslim, Abu dawud, Ibn Majah, At-Tirmithi, and the list can go on.

How strong are these Hadiths given in this book?

An example of a Hadith is, “Invocations after the final Tashahhud and before ending the prayer”

Allahumma ‘inne ‘a’ oothu bika min athaabil-qabri, wa min athaabi jahannama, wa min fitnatil-mahyaa walmamaati, wa min sharri fitnatil-maseehid-dajjaal.

Transmitted by Al-Bukhari 2/102, Muslim 1/412, and this is Muslims wording.

Is the Hadith I gave as an example sahih?
