Haj & ‘Umrah

The rewards for the actions of Hajj

Question

Is the following narration authentic?

عن ابن عمر، قال: كنت جالسا مع النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم في مسجد منى، فأتاه رجل من الأنصار، ورجل من ثقيف، فسلما، ثم قالا: يا رسول الله، جئنا نسألك، فقال: إن شئتما أخبرتكما بما جئتماني تسألاني عنه فعلت، وإن شئتما أن أمسك وتسألاني فعلت ، فقالا: أخبرنا يا رسول الله، فقال الثقفي للأنصاري: سل، فقال: أخبرني يا رسول الله، فقال: جئتني تسألني عن مخرجك من بيتك تؤم البيت الحرام وما لك فيه، وعن ركعتيك بعد الطواف وما لك فيهما، وعن طوافك بالصفا والمروة وما لك فيه، وعن وقوفك عشية عرفة وما لك فيه، وعن رميك الجمار وما لك فيه، وعن نحرك وما لك فيه، وعن حلقك رأسك وما لك فيه، وعن طوافك بالبيت بعد ذلك وما لك فيه مع الإفاضة ، فقال: والذي بعثك بالحق لعن هذا جئت أسألك، قال: فإنك إذا خرجت من بيتك تؤم البيت الحرام لا تضع ناقتك خفا ولا ترفعه إلا كتب الله لك به حسنة، ومحى عنك خطيئة، وأما ركعتاك بعد الطواف كعتق رقبة من بني إسماعيل، وأما طوافك بالصفا والمروة بعد ذلك كعتق سبعين رقبة، وأما وقوفك عشية عرفة، فإن الله تبارك وتعالى يهبط إلى سماء الدنيا، فيباهي بكم الملائكة، يقول: عبادي جاءوني شعثا من كل فج عميق يرجون جنتي، فلو كانت ذنوبكم كعدد الرمل، أو كقطر المطر، أو كزبد البحر لغفرها، أو لغفرتها، أفيضوا عبادي مغفورا لكم ولمن شفعتم له؛ وأما رميك الجمار، فلك بكل حصاة رميتها كبيرة من الموبقات، وأما نحرك فمذخور لك عند ربك، وأما حلاقك رأسك فلك بكل شعرة حلقتها حسنة، ويمحى عنك بها خطيئة، وأما طوافك بالبيت بعد ذلك، فإنك تطوف ولا ذنب لك، يأتي ملك حتى يضع يديه بين كتفيك فيقول: اعمل فيما يستقبل، فقد غفر لك ما مضى

The great reward for women if they are dutiful towards their husbands

Question

Where can I find the following Hadith and how sound is it?

“Muslim ibn ‘Ubayd related from Asma bint Yazid Al Ansariyyah that she went to Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) while he was seated with his Companions. She said,

“I came as an emissary to you from a group of women. Indeed Allah has sent you to both men and women, and we believe in you. Indeed, we women are limited and constrained, though we are the pillars of your houses, from us do you fulfill your desires, and we also carry your children. Indeed, you men have been favoured over us by the congregational Friday prayer and by all other congregational prayers, by visiting the sick, by attending funeral prayers, by performing pilgrimage after pilgrimage, and better than all of that – Jihad in the way of Allah. When men go out to perform Hajj, Umrah, or Jihad, we protect for them their wealth, spin for them their garments, and raise for them their children. Shall we not share with you in this recompense and reward?”

Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) turned to his Companions and said, “Have you ever heard any speech of a woman that is more beautiful than this woman’s questioning regarding the affairs of her religion?” They said, “O Rasulullah, we never thought that a woman should be guided to something like this.”

Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) turned to her and said, “Understand this, O woman, and teach this to those women whom you left behind: For a woman to be a good spouse to her husband, for her to seek his pleasure, for her to follow and cooperate with him, is equal to all of that (i.e. all of the rewards that men get for their toils or for the deeds mentioned above).”

She left and was making Tahlil and Takbir (i.e. she was saying ‘La ilaha illallah’ and ‘Allahu Akbar’) out of rejoice.”

A Hadith on treatment of one’s wife

Question

What is the grade of the following Hadith?

Sulayman ibn ‘Amr ibn Al Ahwas said:

“My father narrated to me that he witnessed the farewell Hajj with Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam). So he thanked and praised Allah and he reminded and gave admonition. He mentioned a story in his narration and he (Nabi sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “And indeed I order you to be good to the women, for they are but captives with you, over whom you have no power than that, except if they come with manifest evil behavior.

If they do that, then abandon their beds and beat them with a beating that is not harmful. And if they obey you then you have no cause against them. Indeed you have rights over your women, and your women have rights over you. As for your rights over your women, then they must not allow anyone whom you dislike to treat on your bedding (furniture), nor to admit anyone in your home those you dislike. And their rights over you are that you treat them well in clothing them and feeding them.”
