Merits of people & places

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

Hadith: I am leaving behind two things

Question

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

1. I am leaving behind two things: the Book of Allah and the Sunnat

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

Outwardly there seems to be a contradiction, please enlighten.

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).
