The Importance of Salah in Congregation

Question

There is a Hadith in which the Prophet (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam) got angry on those who didn’t come to pray in the masjid.

From this Hadith some scholars say it is obligatory to pray in congregation.

Even Imam Bukhari said obligatory. Imam Muslim said it is fard kifayah.

What is the answer to this?

A follow up query on the narration regarding ‘A du’a to recite when hearing a sneeze’

Question

With regard to this post on what to recite when hearing a sneeze:

I have come across a similar narration in Al Hisnul Hasin, which doesn’t have the word ‘سمعها’ [i.e. The Hadith would then mean a person should recite this du’a when sneezing and not when hearing a sneeze]. Is this narration correct?

Will the Hadith then have two possible meanings, i.e. A person should recite this when he sneezes or hears a sneeze?

The application of weak Hadiths

Question

I know the majority of scholars accept weak Hadiths for virtues bearing in mind certain conditions. However my question is regarding why weak Hadiths are also used for those things which are not related to virtues. I am confused regarding the wiping of the face after prayer, from what I have been informed is there are many weak Hadiths on the issue, however the wiping of the face isn’t virtuous.

So why would weak Hadiths be accepted in this example and others like it. Could you also direct me to any books where this is clarified.

One woman leading others in salah

Question

There is a hadith in Tabarani and Musnad Ahmad that says ” there is no good in women’s congregation” what’s the status of this hadith?
