Salah

A question regarding folding the trouser before Salah

Question

A person asked me about the folding of trousers. He said he has read in Bukhari that you cannot fold the trouser. I told him that covering ankles is sinful and there is something about folding not being good, but go for the less harmful. In the first place ankles have to be open but if it is covered then it he should fold the trousers.

Is this correct?

A follow up query on a Hadith in Majalisul Abrar

Question

I  wanted to ask regarding your answer in this link:http://www.hadithanswers.com/reference-for-the-hadith-of-spending-1-huqb-in-jahannam/

Shaykh Zakariya (rahimahullah) said that this narration has been mentioned in the book Majālis al-Abrār.

I have been unable to find this narration amongst the collections of ahādīth that are available to me.

However, the Shaykh of our Mashāikh, Shāh `Abd al-`Azīz Dahlawī (rahimahullāh), has praised this book. my question is  is such an approach acceptable from scholars of Islam?

Especially in a book which is written for laymen?

Is this narration authentic? or are salafis correct for saying this is a fabricated narration?

A follow up query regarding the translation of a narration on the virtue of Surah Ikhlas

Question

Regarding my question on the translation of this:

من قرأ قل هو الله أحد عشر مرات في دبر كل صلاة الغداة لم يلحق به ذلك اليوم ذنب، وإن جهد الشيطان

You have translated it as:

“Sayyiduna ‘Ali (radiyallahu’anhu) said: ‘Whoever recites Surah ikhlas ten times daily after Fajr, will not fall into sin on that day, even if Shaytan tries his utmost [to lure him to do so].

But my question is why isn’t the word “Fajr”  mentioned in the orginal Arabic text because I don’t see this word mentioned in it.

Kindly see the previous question here.

Meaning of being protected from ‘destruction by sin’

Question

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) said:

“Whoever says the following ten times, at the end of every Fajr prayer, while his feet are still folded, before speaking:

La ilaha illallahu, wahdahu la sharika lahu, lahul mulku wa lahul hamdu, yuhyi wa yumitu, wa huwa ‘ala kulli shayin qadir

(Translation: None has the right to be worshipped but Allah, Alone without partner, to Him belongs all that exists, and to Him is the praise, He gives life and causes death, and He is powerful over all things.)

Ten good deeds shall be written for him, ten sins will be wiped away from him, ten degrees shall be raised up for him, and he shall be in security all that day from every disliked thing, and he shall be in protection from Shaytan, and no sin will meet him or destroy him that day, except for associating partners with Allah.

My question is: 

Does this mean that it is impossible for a person to commit a sin on that day and does this include all major and minor sins?
