The slaughtering of death on the day of Qiyamah

Question

Regarding the following Verse of Surah Naba, verse: 40:

‘Indeed, We have warned you of a near punishment on the Day when a man will observe what his hands have put forth and the disbeliever will say, “Oh, I wish that I were dust’.

 

I’ve heard that in the Akhirah, when all those who are to enter Jannah would have entered therein, Allah Ta’ala will call all of mankind and a ram will be killed to signify that there is no more death and those in Jannah will remain therein and those in Jahannam will remain therein forever. Then the disbelievers will say the above: ‘O! I wish that I were dust!’

Reconciliation between Hadiths on Sayyidah ‘Aaishah’s (radiyallahu ‘anha) necklace

Question

In the following two narrations, one narration indicates that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) himself went to search for the necklace and the second narration indicates that Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) did not go himself but instead sent the Sahabah (radiyallahu ‘anhum) to search for the necklace. How does one reconcile between the two narrations?

عن عائشة أم المؤمنين رضي الله عنها قالت: خَرَجْنا مع رَسولِ اللَّهِ ﷺ في بَعْضِ أسْفارِهِ، حتّى إذا كُنّا بالبَيْداءِ، أوْ بذاتِ الجَيْشِ، انْقَطَعَ عِقْدٌ لِي، فأقامَ رَسولُ اللَّهِ ﷺ على التِماسِهِ، وأَقامَ النّاسُ معهُ، ولَيْسُوا على ماءٍ، وليسَ معهُمْ ماءٌ، فأتى النّاسُ أبا بَكْرٍ فَقالوا: ألا تَرى ما صَنَعَتْ عائِشَةُ؟ أقامَتْ برَسولِ اللَّهِ ﷺ وبِالنّاسِ معهُ، ولَيْسُوا على ماءٍ، وليسَ معهُمْ ماءٌ؟ فَجاءَ أبو بَكْرٍ ورَسولُ اللَّهِ ﷺ واضِعٌ رَأْسَهُ على فَخِذِي قدْ نامَ، فَقالَ: حَبَسْتِ رَسولَ اللَّهِ ﷺ والنّاسَ، ولَيْسُوا على ماءٍ، وليسَ معهُمْ ماءٌ، قالَتْ: فَعاتَبَنِي، وقالَ ما شاءَ اللَّهُ أنْ يَقُولَ، وجَعَلَ يَطْعُنُنِي بيَدِهِ في خاصِرَتِي، فلا يَمْنَعُنِي مِنَ التَّحَرُّكِ إلّا مَكانُ رَسولِ اللَّهِ ﷺ على فَخِذِي، فَنامَ رَسولُ اللَّهِ ﷺ حتّى أصْبَحَ على غيرِ ماءٍ، فأنْزَلَ اللَّهُ آيَةَ التَّيَمُّمِ فَتَيَمَّمُوا فَقالَ أُسَيْدُ بنُ الحُضَيْرِ: ما هي بأَوَّلِ بَرَكَتِكُمْ يا آلَ أبِي بَكْرٍ، فَقالَتْ عائِشَةُ: فَبَعَثْنا البَعِيرَ الذي كُنْتُ عليه، فَوَجَدْنا العِقْدَ تَحْتَهُ.

(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 335 and Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 367)

 

عن عائشة أم المؤمنين رضي الله عنها: أنَّها اسْتَعارَتْ مِن أسْماءَ قِلادَةً فَهَلَكَتْ، فأرْسَلَ رَسولُ اللهِ ﷺ ناسًا مِن أصْحابِهِ في طَلَبِها، فأدْرَكَتْهُمُ الصَّلاةُ، فَصَلَّوْا بغيرِ وُضُوءٍ، فَلَمّا أتَوُا النبيَّ ﷺ شَكَوْا ذلكَ إلَيْهِ، فَنَزَلَتْ آيَةُ التَّيَمُّمِ فَقالَ أُسَيْدُ بنُ حُضَيْرٍ: جَزاكِ اللَّهُ خَيْرًا، فَواللَّهِ ما نَزَلَ بكِ أمْرٌ قَطُّ، إلّا جَعَلَ اللَّهُ لَكِ منه مَخْرَجًا وجَعَلَ لِلْمُسْلِمِينَ فيه بَرَكَةً.

Sayyidah ‘Aaishah (radiyallahu ‘anha) sells her slave to the worst of Arabs

Question

Regarding the following Hadith, why did Sayyidah ‘Aaishah (radiyallahu ‘anha) sell her slave to the worst of Arabs?

‘Amrah (rahimahallah) has narrated that: Sayyidah ‘Aaishah (radiyallahu ‘anha) once made a slave girl of hers a Mudabbar [i.e. a slave that is set free after death]. Sayyidah ‘Aaishah (radiyallahu ‘anha) then fell ill. Her nephews inquired from an Indian or Sudanese doctor [about her condition], and he said: “You are most certainly [describing or] informing me about a bewitched woman; her slave girl has bewitched her!”

‘Aaishah (radiyallahu ‘anha) was then informed [about what transpired, called her slave girl] and said [i.e. asked]: “Have you bewitched [i.e. performed black magic against] me?”

She replied: “yes.”

‘Aaishah (radiyallahu ‘anha) then asked: “and why [did you do so]?! You will never be successful, ever!”

Thereafter, she [i.e. ‘Aaishah – radiyallahu ‘anha] said [to her relatives]: “Sell her to the worst of Arabs in conduct [i.e. sell her to those that treat their slaves in the worst of manners]. Read More »
