Reconciliation between the Hadiths on sickness and plague

Question

Both Imams Bukhari and Muslim have narrated a Hadith on the authority of Sayyiduna Anas (radiyallahu ‘anhu) that the Prophet (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) has said:

‘There is no ‘adwa [transmission of infectious disease] and no tiyarah [superstitious belief in bird omens].’

(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 5776, and Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 2224)

However, the following Hadith indicates that there are some contagious diseases. Modern science proves contagion like Coronavirus etc.

The Prophet (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) said:

‘If you hear of an outbreak of plague in a land, do not enter it; but if the plague breaks out in a place while you are in it, do not leave that place.’

(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 5728, 5729, and Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 2219)

Could you reconcile between both of the Hadiths please? Read More »

Another version of the Hadith on ‘Allah Ta’ala testing his servant to raise his rank’

Question

Please authenticate this Hadith.

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) has said:

“Sometimes a high rank is decreed for a Mu’min which he could never have attained by virtue of his deeds, so Allah Ta’ala makes him experience some hardship, whether it be physical, material or concerning his children. Then, He makes him patient and lets him attain the position decreed for him by Allah ‘Azza Wa Jalla.’
