Objection by a brother regarding leaving Madinah for propagating Islam

Question

A brother in the Path of Allah (Tabligh), after the bayan, narrated the virtues that praying in Masjidul Ḥaram has 100,000 times rewards and praying in Masjidun Nabawi has 50,000 times rewards, but the Sahabah still left Arabia to spread the Din.

In response, a brother raised the following question:

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) migrated to Madinah, and even after conquering Makkah, returned to Madinah again. He also spent the rest of his life mostly in Madinah. We have to follow the Prophet (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam), so what should we do?

Please give us a brief explanation in light of the abovementioned facts.

Meaning of 'Allah's 'Arsh shook'

Question

I pray that you are well. My question pertains to the Hadith that informs us that the throne of Allah shook at the death of Sa’d bin Mu’aadh (radiyallahu anhu).

I heard that the explanation for this was because Sa’d bin Mu’aadh was the one that gave the Prophet the nusrah (assistance) to establish the Khilafah in Madinah and hence for this great action and in reverence of it, Allah caused his throne to shake at his death.

Can you please confirm this with classical references or inform me of alternative explanations the ulama have given for this happening? Jazakallahu khayran dear ulama,

Once Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) sent Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Abbas (radiyallahu ‘anhuma) to call Sayyiduna Mu’awiyah (radiyallahu ‘anhu).

After this occurred for a second time, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “May Allah not satiate him”

Qiyamah occurring on a Friday

Question

Is the following Hadith correct?

Also is the interpretation correct; that the black dot is the referring to Qiyamah?

The Messenger of Allah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“The days were shown to me, and among them Friday was shown to me. It looked like a shiny mirror in the middle of which was a black spot. I asked, ‘What is this?’ It was said, ‘The Hour.'”

Friday is a special day whose virtues have been extolled in the Hadith. Friday has been likened in this hadith to a gleaming mirror. The only thing that mars the beauty of Friday is the fact that it is also the day on which the Hour will commence. Because of this, every Friday, all creatures (apart from humans and jinn) are filled with fear in case this particular Friday be the one on which the Trumpet is blown. Jazakallah

Objection on the famous story of Harith bin Malik (radiyallahu’anhu)

Question

In the daily Ta`lim, the narration was read from Muntakhab Ahadith regarding Harith ibn Malik (radiyallahu ‘anhu) replying to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) that he is a true mu’min.

A brother asked in front of everyone about the authenticity of the narration after it was read. He said that the part of ‘turning oneself away from the world’ seemed doubtful (to him) because, in the more literal sense, that is not necessary in Islam.

Please (1) comment on the authenticity of the narration and (2) likewise give an explanation of the part referring to ‘turning away from the world’.
