Will a Shahid (Martyr) be liable for his debts?

Question

Dear ‘Ulama, we often hear that one will not be forgiven for the debts that he fails to repay. Even the shahid (martyr) will not be forgiven for this.

Does this warning apply to all types of debtors?

or is there some detail to this?

What if one has a sincere intention to pay?

Sayyiduna Umar (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reading the Tawrah

Question

I have a query concerning the narration in which Sayyiduna Umar (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reads the Tawrah in the presence of Rasulullah (salallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) and the colour of the blessed face of Rasulullah (salallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) changes.

Is there any mention thereafter of the Ansar taking out their swords because of being angry with Sayyiduna Umar (radiyallahu ‘anhu)?

Time Travel

Question

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: https://www.hadithanswers.com/hadith-really-bukhari/ JazakAllahu khayran.

Is this Hadith really in Bukhari?

Question

Someone came to me and informed me of a sirah bayan he heard. In the bayan, the khatib mentioned a Hadith in which Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) was resting on the thigh of Ali (radiyallahu ‘anhu), and the time of Asr arrived. Ali (radiyallahu ‘anhu) didn’t get up to pray Asr for fear of waking Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam). He used this to claim that hub un-Nabi (love for nabi sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) is greater than Salah. He mentioned that this Hadith is mentioned in Sahih Bukhari.

Clarification on the miraculous achievements of the ‘Ulama

Question 

I find the book Fadail A’mal informative in its explaining themes through Quranic Ayah and Ahadith. However, I find some of the other material very strange. For example, in Fazail of salah, it says that Ibn Abidin (rahmihullah) prayed a thousand nafl rak’ah every day. How is this humanly possible in a 24 hour day (if each rak’ah took one and a half minutes on average, then he would be praying 25 hours a day of nafl salah!)? As unbelievable as this is, is such an act not against the shari’ah (which teaches moderation)? Where do these and other such statements come from? By no means do I wish to attack this work. I merely seek clarification and verification of the authenticity of such statements. Jazakallah
