The hadith "Seek Knowledge even if you have to go as far as china" is fabricated and does not exist. The actual hadith is: The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: ‘Seeking knowledge is obligatory upon every Muslim.’” (220. Classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh Sunan Ibn Maajah) I can confirm this from our local ...

In our post-feminist world, this is a hadith that many people bring up and use to attack Islam as a backward religion. Let me briefly summarize what this hadith is about. Rasulullahi (salallahu alayhi wa sallam) indicate that women were crooked/bent/curved, like a rib. This means that they will not be exactly the way you want them to be. They have their own ...

There are two different things here. Firstly, let me begin asking one question... "What is the punishment for treason in most countries?" In most countries (almost all) in the punishment for treason is death. This would be for spying, attacking ones own country etc. This applies all the more on the military. In the time of the Prophet (pbuh) most people ...

1.There are several conditions that must be satisfied without which one can not receive the punishment of stoning: Four just male must have witnessed the sin(excuse my language, I mean the exact act of penetrating) with their own eyes. So quoting the testimonies of four just male is not acceptable. Their testimonies have to be exactly the same. If one of ...

The simplest answer is that what the Prophet (saws) may be describing is not something that we can observe in the dimensions that we live in. There are plenty of phenomena that the Qur'an and the Prophet (saws) talk about that are more "unscientific" than this. Take, for example, the hadith about sins causing black spots on our heart. Or the verse 83:14 in ...

NOTE. parts of my answer is from Shia perspective. You can find some useful info from Wikipedia on the English, Arabic and Persian entries on the Hadeeth of the two weighty (or precious) things. These pages each has a different content, e.g. the English page shows some Sunni and Shia versions of the Hadeeth, one Sunni version of which is the one you have ...

We have to consider the context of the hadith. The Sahabah were keen on praying the obligatory prayers in congregation behind Prophet Muhammad. Therefore, it is reasonable to assume the prayer being offered by Abu Said was a naafil (voluntary) one. Take note, the Messenger(saw) didn't call him without a purpose. As we can see he had some beneficial ...

It doesn't mean what you mentioned, because the word 'كُلُّ رَايَةٍ' 'Each Flag' doesn't mean the governments but it means each person who claim that he is 'The Qaim' and some people follows him, while he is a liar and he's not the real 'The Qaim’... So this Hadith tells that those people 'the liars' are tyrants and they are defying Allah, and people who ...

Both the men were mahrams of Ayesha. Apparently the relationship of the narrator is not obvious so I'll explain that: Abu Salama was fostered by Umm Kulthum bint Abu Bakr, who was the sister of Ayesha. Hence Ayesha was his foster aunt: لأنها خالة أبي سلمة من الرضاع أرضعته أختها أم كلثوم — Fath al Bari وأرضعته أم كلثوم ، فعائشة خالته من الرضاعة ...

Ka’b bin al-Ashraf al-Yahoodee was a jew in Al-Madinah who used to recite defamatory poetry about the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم and also made explicit poems about the Muslim women. Hence, he was ordered to be killed by the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم. Since you asked this question in the light of the other question about insulting the Prophet صلى الله عليه ...

This question could have been put more politely and you could have asked about circumstances of death of the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) instead of making offensive, far-fetched judgements. I really wish the question is edited. Coming to the question, if you had been sincere, you would have found the other version of the hadeeth narrating the complete ...

First let's re-quote the Hadith: حَدَّثَنَا عَبْدُ اللَّهِ بْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ، قَالَ حَدَّثَنَا أَبُو عَاصِمٍ، قَالَ أَخْبَرَنَا ابْنُ جُرَيْجٍ، قَالَ أَخْبَرَنِي عَطَاءٌ، قَالَ سَمِعْتُ جَابِرَ بْنَ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ، قَالَ قَالَ النَّبِيُّ صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏ "‏ مَنْ أَكَلَ مِنْ هَذِهِ الشَّجَرَةِ ـ يُرِيدُ الثُّومَ ـ فَلاَ يَغْشَانَا فِي مَسَاجِدِنَا ‏"‏‏.‏ ...

Since hazrat Fatima is very eminent and just few achieve that understanding,Imam Sadiq (A.S.) interpreting this verse to hazrat Fatima and said: "Who knows Fatima the way it should,then could understand Laylatul Qadr. Fatima is Laylatul Qadr of ahlul bayt and surat al-Qadr represent magnitude of her and is interpreted to hazrat Fatima through this reasons: ...

You are referring to a special version of this sahih hadith (al-Bukahri, and a longer Version for example in Muslim) on the supplication/curse of an oppressed دعوة المظلوم. Note the addition of "even if he is a disbeliever" doesn't have enough support to be qualifeid as sahih, so it is in best case considered as a "hassan" hadith. I think the longer Version ...

I do not know about the part of deceiving people by dying your hair, but it is ok to dye your hair because the Prophet (Peace and Blessings be upon him) said: إن اليهود والنصارى لا يصبغون، فخالفوهم Jews and Christians do not dye their hair, so act differently from them Also: Abu Qubafa was led (to the andience of the Holy Prophet) on the day of ...

Answer your second question: That the Prophet Muharram to Um Haran bint Milhan. Their relationship either by blood or breastfeeding ... Al-Nawawi said: ((اِتَّفَقَ الْعُلَمَاء عَلَى أَنَّهَا كَانَتْ مَحْرَمًا لَهُ صَلَّى اللَّه عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ , وَاخْتَلَفُوا فِي كَيْفِيَّة ذَلِكَ فَقَالَ اِبْن عَبْد الْبَرّ وَغَيْره: كَانَتْ إِحْدَى خَالَاته ...

The reconciliation is that one is a general ruling (عموم), while the other is about a specific case (خصوص), i.e. an exception. A true contradiction would have existed if: the hadith too had a generic scope, e.g if it said "kill every non-muslim" OR the verse too had a specific scope, and the specified subject was the same group e.g. if it said "let there ...

This may not be the ideal answer but it's a little too much to put in a comment so if someone can better it, please do so. Note these names: The best man after the noble prophet (S) was called "Abu Bakr" The popular sahaabah who was like the shadow of the prophet (s) was called "Abu Huraira" - father of cats Uthmaan Bin Affaan , the 3rd Khaleefah was ...

No, there is no contradiction. A verb may be used in its initial meanings as well as final/extreme. The context/situation dictates the meaning in which it is used. This is a general style of Arabic language. For example see An-Nisa 4:136 O you who believe! believe in Allah and His Apostle and the Book which He has revealed to His Apostle and the Book ...

No, what you said isn't true, this narration is not related to the establishment of a government, but rather is meant a call or uprising. Invite has two types: Call to the void and non-religious purposes which is related to self (nafs) and is doomed. Call to remove void and for right purposes which is approved by Imams. In this narrative, that flags have ...

I will answer this question disregarding whatever the translation says. Simply, Allah(cc) can not be perceived in a wordly way, as us humans do with senses. As such it is not possible to give him a form or physical representation, because the forms which we understand rely on our senses. In the same way the cloths are stuff which we use for the forms which ...

The prophet (peace be upon him) didn't add anything to the verse. It was re-revealed and the previous version of the verse was abrogated. Allah says in the Qur'an: مَا نَنسَخْ مِنْ آيَةٍ أَوْ نُنسِهَا نَأْتِ بِخَيْرٍ مِّنْهَا أَوْ مِثْلِهَا ۗ أَلَمْ تَعْلَمْ أَنَّ اللَّـهَ عَلَىٰ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ Whatever communications We abrogate or cause to ...

As far as I have researched these are words of Thabit b. Qays b. Shammas not that of the Prophet (PBUH). The Arabic text is available here and the English translation here: ومن كفر جاهدناه في الله أبدا وكان قتله علينا يسيرا as for the one who disbelieves, we will fight him forever in the cause of God and killing him is a small matter to us The ...

One Narration/Hadith and different Additions First of all the Hadith itself ended with "Allah's Apostle forbade the Shighar." the rest of it is more or less ijtihad as it's based on a saying of the tabi'i Nafi' mawla Abdullah ibn 'Omar (May Allah be pleased with them). And after that came some fiqh terms such as "the marriage is valid but its condition is ...

While Islam is infamous in the media for suicide bombings, the Qur'an strongly condemns both murder and suicide. But whoever kills a believer intentionally - his recompense is Hell, wherein he will abide eternally, and Allah has become angry with him and has cursed him and has prepared for him a great punishment. -- Qur'an 4:93 Because of that, We ...

The transliteration of your own Quran quote shows that your assumption is wrong "bikhumurihinna" (2nd line)! The Quran uses the plural of khimar خِمَار (khumur خُمُر) as it addresses a plural (women). Here the translator for some reasons used the singular instead, which doesn't make sense, but as he uses the Arabic word in an English text to emphasize a ...

In both ahadith from Jami' at-Tirmdihi al-Mobarakfori or Abdurrahmaan ibn Abdarrahim Mubarakpuri (died 1953) محمد بن عبد الرحمن بن عبد الرحيم المباركفوري in his tohfat al-Ahodi تحفة الأحوذي says that the meaning is that they are like captives, as men have "control over them" ( فإنما هن عوان عندكم ) جمع عانية ، أي أسراء كالأسراء ، شبهن بهن عند الرجال ...

The hadith you quoted has another version in Al-Tabarani's Al-Mu'jam Al-Awṣat, hadith 7647, starting with "Whoever gets married, ..." (also narrated through Anas ibn Mālik). The condition set forth is being married. When the condition of marriage is fulfilled, one may have fulfilled half of one's religion. Multiple marriages, concurrent or in sequence, are ...
