Which Sahabi stopped Sayyiduna ‘Umar (radiyallahu ‘anhu) was on his way to kill Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam)


When Sayyiduna ‘Umar (radiyallahu ‘anhu) was on his way to kill Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) , which Sahabi stopped him on the way:

Sayyiduna Sa’d ibn Abi Waqqas or Sayyiduna An-Nahham, Nu’aym ibn ‘Abdillah (radiyallahu ‘anhuma)?

The reason for posing this question is that in some books, like Fadail A’mal and the Jamiat’s Tasheel Series Grade 7, it says Sayyidina Sa’d ibn Abi Waqqas (radiyallahu ‘anhu). And then in books like Siratul Mustafa, Siratun Nabi, and the Jamiat’s Tasheel Series Grade 5, it says Sayyidina Nu’aym (radiyallahu ‘anhu).

Is it possible that it’s two different narrations? Read More »

False information regarding Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah (radiyallahu ‘anhu)


I have come across the undermentioned post on a group chat.

Would you be so kind as to please explain if this is authentic?

“See example of Abu Hurayrah from Sahih Muslim in his Sahih in Volume 1, writes that during the time of the Prophet, ‘Umar ibn Khattab beat Abu Hurayrah for fabricating lies.

In Volume 2 of Sahih Muslim, he quotes ‘Aaishah, “Abu Hurayrah is a great liar who fabricates Hadith and attributes them to the holy Prophet.”

In Volume 4 of Sahih Muslim, Nadwi says “Imam Abu Hanifah said, ‘The Companions of the Prophet were generally pious and just. I accept every Hadith narrated by them, but I do not accept the Hadith whose source is Abu Hurayrah, Anas ibn Malik, or Samurah ibn Jundub.” Read More »

The curse of Sayyiduna Sa’id ibn Zayd (radiyallahu’anhu)


I came across in a lecture that a woman (by name of Asma) got into a land dispute with Sayyiduna Sa’id Ibn Zayd (radiyallahu’anhu) regarding a piece of land. Eventually Sayyiduna Sa’id Ibn Zayd (radiyallahu’anhu) relented and even though he believed it was his land, he let Asma have the land but he made a du’a to Allah that if she was of the liars and making false claims then she should die on the very land she has falsely taken from Sayyiduna Sa’id Ibn Zayd (radiyallahu’anhu). Eventually, the woman fell into a well in that very land she obtained. Could you please quote the full narration/story(because I might have missed some points) from beginning to end with the source and authenticity?

Abu Bakr (radiyallahu ‘anhu) praised Allah while moving back to the saff (row)


Regarding the following Hadith, what was the reason for Sayyiduna Abu Bakr (radiyallahu ‘anhu) raising his hands and saying takbir before moving back to the saff (row)?

وعن سهل بن سعد الساعدى رضي الله عنه أن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم ذهب إلى بنى عمرو بن عوف ليصلح بينهم فحانت الصلاة فجاء المؤذن إلى أبى بكر فقال: أتصلى بالناس فأقيم قال: نعم، قال: فصلى أبو بكر فجاء رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم والناس فى الصلاة فتخلص حتى وقف فى الصف فصفق الناس وكان أبو بكر لا يلتفت فى الصلاة فلما أكثر الناس التصفيق التفت فرأى رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم فأشار إليه رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم أن امكث مكانك فرفع أبو بكر يديه فحمد الله عز وجل على ما أمره به رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم من ذلك ثم استأخر أبو بكر حتى استوى فى الصف وتقدم النبى صلى الله عليه وسلم فصلى ثم انصرف فقال: يا أبا بكر ما منعك أن تثبت إذ أمرتك؟ قال أبو بكر: ما كان لابن أبى قحافة أن يصلى بين يدى رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم. فقال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: ما لى رأيتكم أكثرتم التصفيق؟ من نابه شىء فى صلاته فليسبح فإنه إذا سبح التفت إليه وإنما التصفيح للنساء

Sayyidatuna: Ummu Sulaym and Ummu Salamah (radiyallahu ‘anhuma)


Were the two Sahabiyyah Sayyidah Ummu Sulaym and Sayyidah Ummu Salamah (radiyallahu ‘anhuma) one and the same person, or were they two different people? I know that Sayyidah Ummu Sulaym was married to Sayyiduna Abu Talhah and would like to know if Sayyiduna Anas’ mother (radiyallahu ‘anhum) was this same Sahabiyyah.

Please also mention where to find biographies on these two Sahabiyyah? Read More »
