The condition of Islam, the Quran, The Masjids and the Scholars before Qiyamah


Is the following Hadith authentic?

يوشك أن يأتي على الناس زمان لا يبقى من الإسلام إلا اسمه ولا يبقى من القرآن إلا رسمه مساجدهم عامرة وهي خراب من الهدى علماؤهم شر مَن تحت أديم السماء مِن عندهم تخرج الفتنة وفيهم تعود

Hadith about how one can be saved from Jahannam


What is the authenticity of the following narration?

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said,

“Jibril said to me, O Muhammad, Allah will address me on the Day of Qiyamah and say,  O Jibril, Why do I see so and so, the son of so and so amidst those destined for Jahannam?

I (Jibril) will say, O My Rabb, We have not come across any good deed of his which will could be of any benefit to him today.

Allah Ta’ala will then say, But I heard him supplicating in the world saying ‘Ya Hannan Ya Mannan’ (O The most Compassionate and Kind). Go and ask him, who was he referring to when he would say ‘Ya Hannan Ya Mannan’? This person will say, Who can be more kind and compassionate than Allah? I will then remove him from those destined for Jahannam and place him with those destined for Jannah”

What does the ‘seal’ of rewards mean?


My question is about this Hadith found in Mustadrak Hakim:

“…He who performs wudu and recites the following du’a, it will be recorded on a scroll and then sealed with a seal and it will not be broken till the day of Qiyamah:

Subhanakallahumma wa bihamdika la ilaha illa anta astaghfiruka wa atubu ilayh.

My question is, what is the authenticity of this Hadith and more relevantly, what does the latter part of this Hadith mean? What does the “seal” mean and what is the reward of this Hadith specifically as I cannot seem to understand how having an action written on a scroll and sealed up is any more meritorious than ordinary circumstances such as the angels writing the deed on their scrolls.
