Accolade of Sayyiduna Mus’ab ibn ‘Umayr (radiyallahu ‘anhu)

Question

Kindly verify if the following statement was made by Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) regarding Sayyiduna Mus’ab ibn ‘Umayr (radiyallahu ‘anhu):

“Among the believers are men who have been true to what they have pledged to Allah.” The Prophet then cast his Mubarak eyes over the battle field on which lay the dead companions of Mus’ab and said: “The Messenger of Allah testifies that you are martyrs in the sight of Allah on the day of Qiyamah.” Then turning to the living companions around him he said: “O People! Visit them, send peace on them for, by Him in whose hand is my soul, any Muslim who sends peace on them [i.e. gives them salam] until the day of Qiyamah, they would return the salutation of peace.” Read More »

The reward on ‘Eidul Fitr for the one who completes the duties of the month of Ramadan

Question

I heard various scholars in our country citing a narration during the ‘Eidul Fitr sermon. The Hadith roughly states our Most Gracious Master, Allah Ta’ala, asking the angels what the reward is for the worker who completed his work. The angels reply that the worker should be fully paid. Then Our Master says that His servants, male and female, have fulfilled the obligation upon them and gone out for invocations and He swears by His honour, beauty, nobility, majesty and high status that He would most certainly respond to them. Then Our Master tells His servants to go back as He has forgiven them and replaced their evil deeds with good.
