Clarification on Hadiths regarding the permissibility/impermissibiity of selling dogs


What is the authenticity of the following narrations:

1) Imam Nasa’i reports  from Jabir (radiyallahu ‘anhu),that the Messenger of Allah (sallalahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) forbade the price of dogs and cats, except for hunting dogs.

2) Nabi (sallalahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) ordered a man to pay forty dirhams for killing a hunting dog.

3) Rasulullah (sallalahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) ordered a person to pay a ram for having killed a watchdog.

How do we reconcile between the above Hadiths and the Hadith in Bukhari wherein the Messenger of Allah (sallalahu ‘alayhi wa sallam)  said that the price of a dog is impure (khabith)?

Hadith about "kaffarah" for breaking the fast in Ramadan


I read about the fiqh of Ramadan on one website and it says if one violates the fast while eating he must fast for two consecutive months as kafarrah. It said one sahabi ate in the day in Ramadan and the Prophet (sallallahu’alaihi wasallam) ordered him to expiate it by fasting as mentioned above. It said it was in Sunan Daraqutni. Is there a hadith saying this? as i’m unsure of its authenticity.

Sayyiduna Umar (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reading the Tawrah


I have a query concerning the narration in which Sayyiduna Umar (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reads the Tawrah in the presence of Rasulullah (salallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) and the colour of the blessed face of Rasulullah (salallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) changes.

Is there any mention thereafter of the Ansar taking out their swords because of being angry with Sayyiduna Umar (radiyallahu ‘anhu)?

Du'as in the book "Hisnul Muslim" (A Muslim's fortress)


I have a question in regards to a book I have, called “The fortress of the Muslim Invocations from the Quran and sunnah”

It was complied by Sa’id bin Wahf Al-Qahtani. There are many DUAS is this book and I’m not sure how Sahih any of them are. There are Hadiths related by Al-Bukhari, Muslim, Abu dawud, Ibn Majah, At-Tirmithi, and the list can go on.

How strong are these Hadiths given in this book?

An example of a Hadith is, “Invocations after the final Tashahhud and before ending the prayer”

Allahumma ‘inne ‘a’ oothu bika min athaabil-qabri, wa min athaabi jahannama, wa min fitnatil-mahyaa walmamaati, wa min sharri fitnatil-maseehid-dajjaal.

Transmitted by Al-Bukhari 2/102, Muslim 1/412, and this is Muslims wording.

Is the Hadith I gave as an example sahih?
