Correct translation of a hadith


Insha Allah you are well. I read the undermentioned translation of a hadith:

Ibn Abbas reported: I was riding with the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, and he said, “Know that there is much good in patience with what you dislike, that support will come with patience, relief will come with affliction, and hardship will come with ease. (Musnad Ahmad)

and I am not sure of the meaning of the underlined portion: and hardship will come with ease”

Could you please explain the meaning of this? Also, could you please send me the Arabic text?

Du'as in the book "Hisnul Muslim" (A Muslim's fortress)


I have a question in regards to a book I have, called “The fortress of the Muslim Invocations from the Quran and sunnah”

It was complied by Sa’id bin Wahf Al-Qahtani. There are many DUAS is this book and I’m not sure how Sahih any of them are. There are Hadiths related by Al-Bukhari, Muslim, Abu dawud, Ibn Majah, At-Tirmithi, and the list can go on.

How strong are these Hadiths given in this book?

An example of a Hadith is, “Invocations after the final Tashahhud and before ending the prayer”

Allahumma ‘inne ‘a’ oothu bika min athaabil-qabri, wa min athaabi jahannama, wa min fitnatil-mahyaa walmamaati, wa min sharri fitnatil-maseehid-dajjaal.

Transmitted by Al-Bukhari 2/102, Muslim 1/412, and this is Muslims wording.

Is the Hadith I gave as an example sahih?

Time Travel


My Beloved Shaykh, I read in one of your answers, that the Prophet (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) made du’a and the sun was returned to a previous position so Sayyiduna ‘Ali (radiyallahu ‘anhu) could pray ‘Asr. Could you please cite the complete Hadith? Does this Hadith mean time travel is some kind of way possible? I am referring to this answer: http://www.hadithanswers.com/hadith-really-bukhari/ JazakAllahu khayran.

Could you please inform what is the academic status of these two Hadiths:

2. I am leaving behind two things: the Book of Allah and the Ahlu Bayt

Outwardly there seems to be a contradiction, please enlighten.
