Reciting behind the imam in Salah

Question

Is the following Hadith authentic?

حَدَّثَنِي يَحْيَى، عَنْ مَالِكٍ، عَنْ نَافِعٍ، أَنَّ عَبْدَ اللَّهِ بْنَ عُمَرَ، كَانَ إِذَا سُئِلَ هَلْ يَقْرَأُ أَحَدٌ خَلْفَ الإِمَامِ قَالَ إِذَا صَلَّى أَحَدُكُمْ خَلْفَ الإِمَامِ فَحَسْبُهُ قِرَاءَةُ الإِمَامِ وَإِذَا صَلَّى وَحْدَهُ فَلْيَقْرَأْ ‏.‏ قَالَ وَكَانَ عَبْدُ اللَّهِ بْنُ عُمَرَ لاَ يَقْرَأُ خَلْفَ الإِمَامِ ‏.‏ قَالَ يَحْيَى سَمِعْتُ مَالِكًا يَقُولُ الأَمْرُ عِنْدَنَا أَنْ يَقْرَأَ الرَّجُلُ وَرَاءَ الإِمَامِ فِيمَا لاَ يَجْهَرُ فِيهِ الإِمَامُ بِالْقِرَاءَةِ وَيَتْرُكُ الْقِرَاءَةَ فِيمَا يَجْهَرُ فِيهِ الإِمَامُ بِالْقِرَاءَةِ‏

It has been reported on the authority of Nafi’ (rahimahullah) that ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Umar (radiyallahu ‘anhuma), when asked if anyone should recite behind an imam, said: “When any one of you performs Salah behind the imam, then the recitation of the imam is enough for him; and when he prays alone [i.e without an imam], then he should recite.”

Nafi’ added, “Abdullah ibn ‘Umar would not recite behind the imam.”

Yahya said: “I heard Malik [rahimahullah] say, “The position with us is that a man should recite behind the imam when the imam does not recite aloud, and that he should refrain from reciting when the imam recites aloud.” Read More »

Mu’awiyah ibn Mu’awiyah high rank due to continuously reciting Surah Ikhlas

Question

I have found a Hadith in Tafsir Ibn Kathir regarding a virtue of Surah Ikhlas. Please verify the authenticity?

Angel Jibril (‘alayhis salam) came to Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) whilst he was in Tabuk and said: “O Muhammad! Witness/attend the funeral of Mu’awiyah Al-Muzani [radiyallahu ‘anhu].” The Prophet (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) set out with his companions and Jibril [‘alayhis salam] descended among [i.e along with] 70,000 angels. Jibril [‘alayhis salam] then stretched his right wing over the mountains and they lowered themselves in humbleness, and he stretched his left wing over the earth and it lowered itself in humbleness to the point where we could see Makkah and Madinah. Then the Prophet (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam), Jibril, and the angels offered prayer [Janazah Salah] on that companion. When he [i.e Nabi – sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) finished the prayer, he said: ‘O Jibril! What elevated Mu’awiyah ibn Mu’awiyah [enabling him] to reach this status?’ Angel Jibril replied: “By reciting Qul Huwallahu Ahad whilst sitting, walking and riding.'”
