Question

Could you please verify this post?

لا ينبغي القاء المواعظ و الدروس يوم الجمعة قبل الصلاة الجمعة فيه الحديث:عن عمرو بن شعيب عن ابيه عن جده ان رسول الله صلى الله عليه و سلم نهي عن التحلق قبل الصلاة يوم الجمعة

It is not suitable to give speeches and lessons in Jumu’ah day (Friday), before Jumu’ah prayer, there is Hadith by authority of ‘Amr ibn Shua’yb by his father by his grandfather that Messenger of Allah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) forbid atahalluqu (gathering of knowledge and revisions) before the Salah on the day of Jumu’ah.

Question

I have read that after Sayyidah ‘Aaishah (radiyallahu ‘anha) softened the miswak with her mouth and gave it to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) to use during his final illness, she said “From all the blessed wives of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam), I am the only one who had the honour of having had her saliva touch the blessed mouth of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam)”

Question

An Imam told me that when someone is about to pass away from the world, he should say the entire Shahadah, (La ilaha illallah Muhammadur rasulullah),

not just La ilaha illallah.

I am confused because most Hadiths I read says a person’s last words should be: La ilaha illallah.

So please tell me: When a person is about to depart from this world, should his last words should be La ilaha illallah or La ilaha illallah Muhammadur rasulullah?

Question

Kindly explain the Hadith below:

Busr ibn Sa’id (rahimahullah) narrates that Zaid ibn Khalid Al-Juhani (rahimahullah) narrated to him something in the presence of Sa’id ibn ‘Ubaidullah Al-Khawlani (rahimahullah) who was brought up in the house of Maymuna (radiyallahu ‘anha) the wife of the Prophet.

“The Angels [of Mercy] do not enter a house wherein there is a picture.”

Busr said: “Later on Zaid ibn Khalid fell ill and we called on him. To our surprise we saw a curtain decorated with pictures in his house. I said to ‘Ubaidullah Al-Khawlani:

“Didn’t he [Zaid] tell us about the [prohibition of] pictures?”

He said: “But he exempted the embroidery on garments. Didn’t you hear him?”

I said: “No.” He said: “Yes, he did.” Read More »
