Meaning of a Hadith in Sahih Muslim

Question

In this famous Hadith, what is the correct meaning and explanation of the words ساعة و ساعة?

روى مسلم عن أبي عثمان النهدي عن حنظلة الأسيدي قال: وكان من كتاب رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم قال: لقيني أبو بكر  فقال كيف أنت يا حنظلة؟ قال: قلت: نافق حنظلة!  قال: سبحان الله، ما تقول؟ قال:  قلت: نكون عند رسول الله صلى عليه وسلم يذكرنا بالنار والجنة حتى كأنا رأي عين، فإذا خرجنا من عند رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم عافسنا الأزواج والأولاد والضيعات فنسينا كثيراً. قال أبو بكر:  فوالله إنا لنلقى مثل هذا، فانطلقت أنا وأبو بكر  حتى دخلنا على رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم، قلت: نافق حنظلة  يا رسول الله، فقال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم : “وما ذاك؟.”  قلت: يا رسول الله نكون عندك تذكرنا بالنار  والجنة، حتى كأنا رأي عين، فإذا خرجنا من عندك عافسنا الأزواج والأولاد والضيعات نسينا كثيراً، فقال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: ” والذي  نفسي بيده؛ إن لو تدومون على ما تكونون عندي وفي الذكر لصافحتكم الملائكة على فرشكم، وفي طرقكم، ولكن يا حنظلة ساعة وساعة ثلاث مرات.

The virtue of the tribe, ‘Azd Shanu-ah’

Question

Is this narration authentic and what is meant?

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “Al Azd is Allah’s lion [i.e. Allah’s army] upon the earth. The people wish to lower them but Allah refuses except to raise them. A time will come upon the people where a man will say: “I wish my father was Azdi, I wish my mother was Azdi.”

How much really will the lowest Jannati receive?

Question

I read two Hadiths regarding the last person to enter Jannah or lowest ranking person to enter Jannah. One Hadith says that person will get “what equals the world and ten times as much.”

In the other Hadith, Nabi Musa (‘alayhis salam) asked Allah Ta’ala who will be the last person to enter Jannah, Allah Ta’ala said that person will get as much kingdom like that of a King of the world.

My question is why does one Hadith say that person will get as much as ten times the world but other Hadith says he will receive the like of a kingdom of a king?

Does Nabi Musa’s (‘alayhis salam) Hadith seems to say he will get less than the size of the world?

Why there are differences between both Hadiths for the last person to enter Jannah? Read More »
