Status of the hadith on the hearts becoming hard

Question

 I heard a hadith in which the Prophet (sallallahu’alaihi wasallam) mentions that the inability to weep is caused by the hardness of the heart which is caused by the multiplicity of sin which is caused by the love of this world which is caused by ambition which is caused by the forgetfulness of death. Can you please give me the exact wording?

Fadail A'mal mentions Kashf, is this shirk?

Question

In the book: Fada’il al-A’mal, first edition 1994 of the English translation. On the end of page 21  of Virtues of Salah, you will find the words ascribing kasha of  “seeing sins falling down from the limbs of the person performing wudu…” to Imam Abu Hanifah (rahimahullah). Kashf means, in Khandhlawi’s own words, “divine manifestation of unseen things”(pg.128 of Virtues of Dhikr).

Muslims know that seeing the unseen (ghayb) is only possible to Allah, and the claim and lie that people are able to do such things is clear shirk. And on top of that it is a lie on Imam Abu Hanifah (rahimahullah).

Question

I recently read an email which stated that our Prophet Muhammad (sallallahu’alaihi wasallam) prohibited the Sahabah (radiyallahu’anhum) from using their left hands to count when doing dhikr. Unfortunately I cannot find this email, and was hoping that you could find something in this regard and forward it to me. Jazakallah

Reference for the incident of a Sahabi who didn’t have food

Question

During a lecture, I heard this story: A Sahabi (radiyallahu’anhu) asked his wife for something to eat. She said that there was nothing in the home to eat. He went to the masjid, prayed two rak’ahs, came back but still there was nothing

He realised that there was something wrong with his salah. So he went back to the masjid, prayed two more rak’ahs returned home and asked his wife again. He found that the wheat grinder (chakki) he had in his house started operating by itself and was churning out flour that filled up every container in the house.

Is this a true story? What is its source and chain of narrators? What was the name of the Sahabi?

Proofs for cutting the hand of a thief from the wrist

Question:

I wanted to ask a quick question about the verse in the Quran 5:38 that talks about cutting the hand of the thief. The sunnah says to cut at the wrist but I haven’t been able to locate any Hadith from Prophet (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam) that describe that he instructed that the hand should be cut at the wrist and not elsewhere. Are there any Hadith to support our Sunni view? I am aware of the scholars’ opinions on this issue, but just needed some Hadith.
