Jibril (‘alayhis salam) describes Jahannam

Question

Sayyiduna ‘Umar (radiyallahu ‘anhu) said: “Jibril (‘alayhis salam) came to Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) at an unusual time. Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) stood up and said, ‘O Jibril, why has your complexion changed?’ Jibril (‘alayhis salam) replied, ‘I have only come as Allah has ordered regarding the keys of Jahannam.’ Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) then said, ‘O Jibril, describe the Fire for me!’ He replied, ‘Allah commanded that it burn for a thousand years until it turned white, and then it burned for a thousand years until it turned red and He commanded again that it burn for a thousand years until it turned black. It is black and dark, its embers are never extinguished, its flame never subsides. By Him Who sent you in truth, if the amount of the head of a needle from Jahannam had to be opened, everyone on earth would die from its heat. By Him Who sent you in truth, if one of the garments of the fire had to be hung between the sky and earth, all the inhabitants of earth would die due to the heat.By Him Who sent you in truth, if one of the gatekeepers of Jahannam were to show his face to the people of the world and they gazed at it, they would all die due to the ugliness of his face and his stench. By Him Who sent you in truth, if a link of the chain which Allah has described in His Book, were placed on the mountains of the earth, they would melt.’

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) then said, Enough O Jibril, lest my heart split and I pass away.’ Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) then looked at Jibril who was crying and said, ‘O Jibril, why are you crying whereas you hold [a lofty position] in the sight of Allah.’ Jibril (‘alayhis salam) replied, ‘Why should I not cry? Perhaps in the Knowledge of Allah, I may not be as I am currently. What do I know, perhaps I could be tested just as Iblis was tested, for he was from the angels or perhaps I could be tested just as Harut and Marut were tested…'”

Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) sharing a camel on the day of Badr

Question

I remember hearing somewhere that before the battle of Badr, three people used to share one camel, turn by turn. The Messenger of Allah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) was with Ali and another young Sahabi (radiyallahu ‘anhuma), and the two of them said to the Messenger of Allah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) that they are young and can walk and that the Messenger of Allah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wsallam) can ride the camel throughout the journey without sharing. The Messenger of Allah(saw) replied, “As for you being younger that’s true, but we all have the same strength. And as for sharing, don’t I want to earn good deeds like you all do?”

The harms of marrying with the incorrect intention

Question

Please mention the status of this Hadith. It would be appreciated if you could quote the Arabic text as well.

It is mentioned in a Hadith that the person who marries to acquire fame then Allah will increase him in disgrace and the person who marries to acquire wealth then Allah will increase him in poverty and that person who marries to obtain family name (pride) then Allah will increase him in ridicule and low position and that person who marries solely for the protection of his gaze, preserving his chastity and to join family ties then Allah will make both partners a source of blessings for each other.
