Muhammad Al-Fatih

Question

My question is about the ahadith that supposedly speak of Muhammad al Faatih. The Ashaa’irah and Maturidiyyah (Ahl ul Sunnah) use this Hadith to show that contrary to the claim of the Salafiyyah, this Hadith proves that the Maturidi Aqeedah is sound because the Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wal Sallam) said the leader of the army was blessed and so was its army. My question is, is there a consensus that this Hadith refers to Muhammad al Faatih and if not, who are the ulama that have said that this Hadith is in reference to Muhammad al Faatih?

Here is the Hadith in question:

Verily you shall conquer Constantinople. What a wonderful leader will her leader be, and what a wonderful army will that army be!”

(Musnad Ahmad)

The moment of acceptance on Friday

Question

I’ve read and been told that during Friday or when Jumu’ah khutbah is taking place there is an hour where any du’a made is guaranteed to be accepted. I’ve been told by some it could be when the Imam is mounting pulpit or descending from it.

Please clarify which moment this applies to, and quote the narrations in question not forgetting to confirm their grading. Jazak’allah.

'Umar's (radiyallahu'anhu) Islam

Question

I came across the following Hadith in Sahih Bukhari:

I heard Sa`id bin Zaid bin `Amr bin Nufail saying in the mosque of Al-Kufa:

“By Allah, I have seen myself tied and forced by `Umar to leave Islam before `Umar himself embraced Islam…[..]”

My question is:

How does this fit with the well known story of Umar (radiyallahu’anhu)’s accepting Islam? In which, Umar (radiyallahu’anhu) isn’t aware about his sister and Sa’id (radiyallahu’anhu) being Muslims until he is told so by Na’im ibn Abdullah (radiyallahu’anhu), and the same day he accepts Islam so when would he have had time to tie up Sa’id (radiyallahu’anhu)?

Keeping children indoors when night sets in

Question

What is meant by ‘when the darkness of the night envelopes’ in the following Hadith? Which time is it referring to?

‘Ata (rahimahullah) related that he heard Jabir ibn ‘Abdullah (radiyallahu ‘anhu) say that the Prophet (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said,

“When the darkness of the night envelops–or it becomes nightfall–withhold your children (from going outside). Verily, the Jinn spread out at this time. Then, when part of the night has passed, let them go outside. And lock the doors whilst mentioning Allah’s name.” [Bukhari, Chapter of the Beginning of Creation]
