More merits of Ayatul-Kursi

Question

Could you clarify the authenticity of the following narrations on the virtues of Ayatul Kursi?

1. Recite Ayatul Kursi at the time of leaving home, because 70 000 angels will protect a person from the right, left, front and back; and if he passes away before returning, he will receive the reward of seventy martyrs.

2. Recite Ayatul Kursi forty times at the time of sunset daily, because its reciter will receive the reward of forty Hajj.

3. Recite Ayatul Kursi every night before sleeping, as an angel is appointed to guard the person till the morning.

4. Recite Ayatul Kursi after every ablution (wudu), as every word will elevate his status forty times.

5. Recite Ayatul Kursi every time one returns home, for it repels poverty.

Arabic books on importance of following a madhab

Question

I have a concern regarding teaching someone to follow a madhhab. The person is from a background where the family does not adhere to following one specific madhhab. The person’s knowledge is limited, as the person is young, and grew up in an environment where deen is hard to practice and knowledge is difficult to seek, because the government suppresses any kind of religious teachings.

Do you have any suggestion on how to teach someone with that background about madhhab. Also do you know any good hanafi books for beginners, such as “Heavenly Ornaments” but they all have to be in Arabic?

Fadail A'mal mentions Kashf, is this shirk?

Question

In the book: Fada’il al-A’mal, first edition 1994 of the English translation. On the end of page 21  of Virtues of Salah, you will find the words ascribing kasha of  “seeing sins falling down from the limbs of the person performing wudu…” to Imam Abu Hanifah (rahimahullah). Kashf means, in Khandhlawi’s own words, “divine manifestation of unseen things”(pg.128 of Virtues of Dhikr).

Muslims know that seeing the unseen (ghayb) is only possible to Allah, and the claim and lie that people are able to do such things is clear shirk. And on top of that it is a lie on Imam Abu Hanifah (rahimahullah).
