Nabi’s (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) name; Al ‘Aqib

Question

I saw the following quote:

“It is obvious that the words ‘and Al-‘Aqib is he after whom there is no prophet’ have been added as a commentary by a companion or someone afterwards.” (Mirqat, Volume 5, Page 376).

How authentic is this statement which was said by Mulla Ali Qari?

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.

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 »

Which Sahabi stopped Sayyiduna ‘Umar (radiyallahu ‘anhu) was on his way to kill Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam)

Question

When Sayyiduna ‘Umar (radiyallahu ‘anhu) was on his way to kill Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) , which Sahabi stopped him on the way:

Sayyiduna Sa’d ibn Abi Waqqas or Sayyiduna An-Nahham, Nu’aym ibn ‘Abdillah (radiyallahu ‘anhuma)?

The reason for posing this question is that in some books, like Fadail A’mal and the Jamiat’s Tasheel Series Grade 7, it says Sayyidina Sa’d ibn Abi Waqqas (radiyallahu ‘anhu). And then in books like Siratul Mustafa, Siratun Nabi, and the Jamiat’s Tasheel Series Grade 5, it says Sayyidina Nu’aym (radiyallahu ‘anhu).

Is it possible that it’s two different narrations? 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?

Wording of a comprehensive du’a of Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam)

Question

With regards to the comprehensive du’a of Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam), I have come across the following narration:

اللَّهُمَّ إِنَّا نَسْأَلُكَ مِمَّا سَأَلَكَ نَبِيُّكَ مُحَمَّدٌ صلى الله عليه وسلم، وَنَسْتَعِيذُكَ مِمَّا اسْتَعَاذَكَ مِنْهُ نَبِيُّكَ مُحَمَّدٌ صلى الله عليه وسلم، اللَّهُمَّ أَنْتَ الْمُسْتَعَانُ وَعَلَيْكَ الْبَلاَغُ، وَلاَ حَوْلَ وَلاَ قُوَّةَ إِلاَّ بِاللَّهِ‏

(Aladabul Mufrad, Hadith: 679)

 

I would like to know if this du’a has appeared in any narrations with the following wording:

  1.  وَنَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ شَرِّ مَا اسْتَعَاذَكَ مِنْهُ – with a ك
  2.  وَنَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ شَرِّ مَا اسْتَعَاذَ مِنْهُ – without a ك

Gifting flowers on a happy occasion

Question

There is a trend nowadays, that when there is a happy occasion like a birth, wedding, graduation, etc, flower arrangements are ordered and given as gifts. The flower arrangements are quite expensive. The more stylish the arrangement, the higher the price. When we intervene and try explaining that rather spend the money in more constructive avenues, the following Hadith is then presented as a proof.

It has been reported on the authority of Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah (radiyallahu ‘anhu) that Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) has said: ‘He who is presented with a flower should not reject it, for it is light to carry and pleasant in odour (fragrance).’

(Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 2253)

 

Is this Hadith being used in the right context? What is the correct understanding? What about investing the amount of money spent on flower arrangements in a more constructive avenue, as it will eventually end up being thrown away? Read More »
