An angel makes tasbih whilst carrying the ‘Arsh

Question

Is this Hadith authentic?

Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“I have been permitted to narrate to you about an angel that his feet passes through the seventh earth and the Throne is on his shoulders, and he says; “Pure are You from being said where were you, and where are you”.

Du’as when entering the Masjid

Question

Is the following du’a authentic?

“I seek refuge in the Almighty Allah, by His Noble Self and by His primordial reign, from Shaytan the outcast. O Allah, open for me the doors of Your mercy.”

If this Hadith is authentic, can we use it to establish that the word Qadim can be used to describe Allah Ta’ala?

Has the word ‘Qadim’ been used in any other Hadith to describe Allah Ta’ala?

Eternity in Jannah

Question

In the Hereafter a person either goes to Jannah or Jahannam or spends some time in Jahannam and then goes to Jannah, that life has no ending as if it’s eternal. My question is that eternity is an attribute which belongs to Allah Himself alone. How can we humans have that or any part of eternity?

A book that discusses the Attributes of Allah

Question

Is there any book in which we can find the Hadiths that discuss the Sifat (attributes) of Allah (according to Ash’ari madhab)?

I thought this could be useful against those who claim that all Sifat of Allah related by the As’aris are based on pure logic of later Ulama, & not from Rasulullah (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam) and the Salaf (Pious predecessors)

Clarification on the miraculous achievements of the ‘Ulama

Question 

I find the book Fadail A’mal informative in its explaining themes through Quranic Ayah and Ahadith. However, I find some of the other material very strange. For example, in Fazail of salah, it says that Ibn Abidin (rahmihullah) prayed a thousand nafl rak’ah every day. How is this humanly possible in a 24 hour day (if each rak’ah took one and a half minutes on average, then he would be praying 25 hours a day of nafl salah!)? As unbelievable as this is, is such an act not against the shari’ah (which teaches moderation)? Where do these and other such statements come from? By no means do I wish to attack this work. I merely seek clarification and verification of the authenticity of such statements. Jazakallah
