The virtue of waiting in the Masjid from one Salah to the next


Is this Hadith authentic?

صلينا مع رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم المغرب فرجع من رجع، وعقب من عقب، فجاء رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم مسرعا قد حفزه النفس وقد حسر عن ركبتيه فقال: أبشروا هذا ربكم قد فتح بابا من أبواب السماء، يباهي بكم الملائكة، يقول: انظروا إلى عبادي قد قضوا فريضة، وهم ينتظرون أخرى

The ill effect of insulting others


Please provide a reference for the following and please confirm if the translation is in order:

On the Day of Judgment, a person’s book of deeds will be given into his hands [and he will not see therein any of the good deeds he did, for Allah’s sake]. He will ask the Allah: “Why are my good deeds not recorded in here?” and Allah Ta’ala will answer: “They have been given to the ones you hurt and insulted by talking against them.”

The virtue of keeping a horse


Please verify the translation of the following Hadith and provide its reference.

“…He to whom the horse will be a source of reward is the one who keeps it in Allah’s Cause, and ties it by a long rope in a pasture (or a garden). He will get a reward equal to what it’s long rope allows it to eat in the pasture or the garden, and if that horse breaks it’s rope and crosses one or two hills, then all its foot-steps and its dung will be counted as good deeds for its owner; and if it passes by a river and drinks from it, then that will also be regarded as a good deed for its owner even if he has had no intention of watering it then…”

The correct method of reciting ‘repeated parts’ in a dhikr


I have seen in some Hadiths about dhikr, when the word is مثل ذلك, does this mean we need to repeat all the words again or we just recite مثل ذلك?

For example the Hadiths below:

‎روى ابن أبي شيبة رحمه الله في “مصنفه” بسند صحيح عَنِ ابْنِ عُمَرَ، قَالَ: مَنْ قَالَ دُبُرَ كُلِّ صَلَاةٍ ، وَإِذَا أَخَذَ مَضْجَعَهُ : اللَّهُ أَكْبَرُ كَبِيرًا عَدَدَ الشَّفْعِ ، وَالْوِتْرِ، وَكَلِمَاتِ اللَّهِ التَّامَّاتِ الطَّيِّبَاتِ الْمُبَارَكَاتِ ، ثَلَاثًا، وَلَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللَّهُ مِثْلُ ذَلِكَ ، كُنَّ لَهُ فِي قَبْرِهِ نُورًا ، وَعَلَى الْجِسْرِ نُورًا، وَعَلَى الصِّرَاطِ نُورًا ، حَتَّى يُدْخِلْنَهُ الْجَنَّةَ ، أَوْ يَدْخُلَ الْجَنَّةَ

So are the words to be recited as:

وَلَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللَّهُ مِثْلُ ذَلِكَ

Or as:

[لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللَّهُ عَدَدَ الشَّفْعِ ، وَالْوِتْرِ، وَكَلِمَاتِ اللَّهِ التَّامَّاتِ الطَّيِّبَاتِ الْمُبَارَكَاتِ]

Another example is:

والله اكبر مثل ذلك، والحمد لله مثل ذلك، ولا اله الا الله مثل ذلك، ولا حول ولا قوة الا بالله مثل ذلك.

So we just recite as they are or we need to repeat the whole sentences by replacing with the words before مثل ذلك? Read More »
