The different versions of the Tashahhud

Question

Please help me with this question:

Yahya related to me from Malik from Ibn Shihab from Urwa ibnuz Zubayr from Abdar Rahman ibn Abdal Qari that he heard Umar ibnul Khattab say, while he was teaching people the tashahhud from the mimbar,

“Say, Greetings belong to Allah. Pure actions belong to Allah. Good words and prayers belong to Allah. Peace on you, Prophet, and the mercy of Allah and His blessings. Peace be upon us and on the slaves of Allah who are salihun. I testify that there is no god except Allah. And I testify that Muhammad is His slave and His messenger.”

At-tahiyatu lillah, az-zakiyatu lillah, at-tayibatu wa’s-salawatu lillah. As-salamu alayka ayyuha’nnabiyyu wa rahmatu’llahi wa barakatuhu. As-salamu alayna wa ala ibadi’llahi s-salihin. Ash-hadu an la ilaha illa ‘llah wa ash-hadu anna Muhammadan abduhu wa rasuluh.”

Is it correct? I use to say the same since my childhood but now I noticed it is At-tahiyatulillahi wassalatu watayibatu, can I continue saying az-zakiyatu?

The curse of Sayyiduna Sa’id ibn Zayd (radiyallahu’anhu)

Question

I came across in a lecture that a woman (by name of Asma) got into a land dispute with Sayyiduna Sa’id Ibn Zayd (radiyallahu’anhu) regarding a piece of land. Eventually Sayyiduna Sa’id Ibn Zayd (radiyallahu’anhu) relented and even though he believed it was his land, he let Asma have the land but he made a du’a to Allah that if she was of the liars and making false claims then she should die on the very land she has falsely taken from Sayyiduna Sa’id Ibn Zayd (radiyallahu’anhu). Eventually, the woman fell into a well in that very land she obtained. Could you please quote the full narration/story(because I might have missed some points) from beginning to end with the source and authenticity?

Question

Were the two Sahabiyyah Sayyidah Ummu Sulaym and Sayyidah Ummu Salamah (radiyallahu ‘anhuma) one and the same person, or were they two different people?

Please also mention where to find biographies on these two Sahabiyyah? Read More »
