The Prophet (SAW) is simply indicating the importance of praying in Jama'ah and how angry he became at those who did not pray in Jama'ah without any excuse. A longer narration of the same hadith: "By Him in Whose Hand my soul is I was about to order for collecting firewood (fuel) and then order someone to pronounce the Adhan for the prayer and then ...

Whenever the Rasool (saw) comments on a matter and then describes it with something, the description gives us the Islamic hukm on it. For example, When the Rasool (saw) said; "The Imam (ruler) is a shield, from behind whom people fight and are protected" (Muslim) The fact that the Rasool (saw) referred to the ruler as a shield is indication of ...

The scholar Al-Khattabi said about this hadith: قلت لم يأمر عمررضي الله عنه برجم مجنونه مطبق عليها في الجنون ولا يجوز أن يخفى هذا ولا على أحد ممن بحضرته، ولكن هذه امرأة كانت تجن مرة وتفيق أخرى فرأى عمر رضي الله عنه أن لا يسقط عنها الحد لما يصيبها من الجنون إذ كان الزنا منها في حال الإفاقة، ورأى علي كرم الله وجهه أن الجنون شبهة يدرأ بها الحد عمن يبتلي به ...

This isn't really a contradiction. Both ahadith do not negate the fact that manumitting slaves is an encouraged and virtuous deed in Islam. Rather they are about special cases where something else takes precedence over this deed. The first hadith is about Tadbir, where a person declares that his slave would be free after his (owner's) death This is meant to ...

The actual wording of the hadith says أم ولد which means that it refers to Mariyah al-Qibtiyyah, the mother of the Prophet's son Ibrahim. The accused was a person who had accompanied her from Egypt, sometimes claimed to be her cousin. He would visit her too often and people speculated that he was attracted to her and had relations with her. It is inferable ...

The hadith is: Al-Bukhari reported on the authority of Abi Bakra that he said: Allah has given me the privilege of a word which I heard from the Messenger of Allah during the days of Al-Jamal (the camel), when I was about to join the people of Al-Jamal and fight with them: When the Messenger of Allah heard that the people of Persia had appointed the ...

You see, the problem here is that the Arabic language has changed. Which can be said for pretty much any other language that has been in use for over fourteen centuries. Arabic, as it is commonly spoken and understood around the world, really has little in common with the Arabic spoken during the time of the Prophet and encoded in the Qur'an. Heck, even the ...

There are many ahadith about the merits of different Sahabah. This hadith talks about the merit of Umar (RA). The Prophet (SAW) saw a dream in which many people were wearing different clothes. However, their shirts were small and did not cover them completely. Then, he saw Umar (RA) who was wearing a complete shirt that was so long that he had to drag it ...

Some sources This hadith was mentioned in different hadith compilations it appears at least thrice in Sahih al-Bukhari (here, here and here), in Sahih Muslim and Sunan an-Nasa-i to name a few sources. Dream-interpretation in the relevant context Please be aware that dream-interpretation requires specific knowledge it is learnable or for some people a gift of ...

Having sex with a slave that one owns is permissible in Islam as they are "those your right hand possesses" as mentioned in the verses 23:6 and 4:3. The relation is not much different from a normal wife, as the following conditions similar to marriage apply: Sex may only be had with a slave whom one owns, it is not permitted to have relations with ...

The translation is pretty clear, and I don't see any improvement in it. The Jew is saying that the statement by Allah "This day I have perfected your religion For you, completed My favor upon you, And have chosen for you Islam as your religion" was something he would have been so happy with if it had been revealed about his religion that he would ...

Hima is transliteration of الـحِمَى: In the following I'm translating from Arabic language as these translations are of my own take them carefully الـحِمَى: المحمي المحظور على غير صاحبه. al-Hima (a kind shelter): a shelter or protected area forbidden to anyone other than the owner. So Hima among Arab kings was a kind of shelter or protected Area or ...

It is quite apparent if you read the whole hadith. However it is also more explicitly narrated in other ahadith. The choice is between continuing to live longer in this world or transitioning to the afterlife right then. لا يموت نبي حتى يخير بين الدنيا والآخرة No Prophet dies till he is given the option to select either the worldly life or the life of the ...

Alaikum salam wa rahmatullah dear Brother, interesting question! First of all keep in mind that the science of Ahadith is too complex as to compare it to events in the old Testament. Regarding your question: there is another Hadith variant which says "..not lawful to any Prophet before me" (Al Tabarani) So it could be possible that the Prophet ...

Perhaps you do not realize this, but almost everything will be brought to testify on the Day of Judgement. For example, in the Quran, Allah says about the earth itself: When the earth is shaken with its [final] earthquake, And the earth discharges its burdens, And man says, "What is [wrong] with it?" - That Day, it will report its news Because ...

In the name of Allah, the most gracious and most merciful. May Allah's perfect blessings, prayers and peace, be upon the most noble of creation. The best of messengers and the leader of all man kind and Prophets. Our beloved master and intercessor, Sayiduna Mohammed (peace be upon him). The man is told to accept Islam and go against his nafs (the inner ego ...

Assalamualaikum, firstly, i just wanna say that it is very unlikely that this hadith is referring to soft drinks because i have not heard of any scholar who has said that soft drinks are haram and also because there is nothing haram about soft drinks, it could be called bad for health at best . Secondly, this hadith could be referring to the many new types ...

Assalamu'alaikum 🙏 This is a pretty old question but I just want to add my two cent as a muslim woman myself. It's not rocket science, buddy. What the hadith meant is that men should be more patient with interacting with women because we are different from them. More sensitive, generally. It doesn't mean that men should not encourage women to be better. It'...

The hadith of wudhu does not indicate that the person will be able to go to Jannat-al-Firdaws only for that action. Rather the Prophet (SAW) says: فُتِّحَتْ لَهُ ثَمَانِيَةُ أَبْوَابِ الْجَنَّةِ All eight gates of Paradise will be opened for him. The gates of Paradise do not correspond to the levels of Paradise. Meaning, it isn't like one gate will lead to ...

It refers to the inhabitants of Medinah among the sahaba, as in the verse: والسابقون الأولون من المهاجرين والأنصار والذين اتبعوهم بإحسان رضي الله عنهم ورضوا عنه وأعد لهم جنات تجري تحتها الأنهار خالدين فيها أبدا ذلك الفوز العظيم And the first forerunners [in the faith] among the Muhajireen and the Ansar and those who followed them with good conduct - Allah ...

Sources This hadith appears in many sources among them Sahih al-Bukhari with different versions or narrator chains. One of them goes through imam Malik who compiled it in his al-Muwatta' which also was the source of abu Dawod's and an-Nasa-i's version. Ibn Majah narrated with a chain that includes imam Sufyan a-Thawry and a slight difference in the wording. ...

According to the majority opinion, Abraham عليه السلام was not in doubt. The explanation of the hadith is that when some of the people heard the verse (2:260) they misinterpreted it and said that Abraham had doubted Allah's power while they and their prophet did not. On this the prophet Muhammad ﷺ refuted them by saying that "We have more right to be in ...

Translation issues First of all the matter in fact looks differently, when one reads both ahadith in Arabic. As in imam Muslim's version it is stated: In the following I'll be translating from Arabic language, as these translations are of my own take them carefully! ... عَنْ عُبَيْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ مِقْسَمٍ، أَنَّهُ نَظَرَ إِلَى عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ عُمَرَ ...

Earlier scholars didn't even consider explaining this At first sight the answer seemed very clear to me, but it was really hard to find an explicit quote in a commentary of Sahih Muslim that confirms this. Neither an-Nawawi, nor al-Qurtubi nor any of the known authors of commentaries explaining the content of Sahih Muslim such as al-Qadi 'Iyad, al-Aaby, al-...

No there's no contradiction. First of all in the chapter of Fath al-Bari border lines for the allowed clothes while wearing Ihraam are discussed. While the hadith from Sahih al-Bukhari is an explanation how the women interpreted the verse 24:31. And the addition leaving the impression that they covered their faces hardly goes along with the wording of the ...

The Arabic in that hadith literally just says "…والروم…" ("…and Rome…") It doesn't say, or even imply, anything about conquering, much less being conquered by Muslims. The sign that it's likely referring to is found in the Quran: [1] Alif, Lam, Meem. [2] The Byzantines (Rome) have been defeated [3] In the nearest land. But they, after ...

Naqib is a title which means leader or representative, as used in the Quran in 5:12. In this hadith it refers to the narrator Ubadah bin As-Samit, who was among those who gave the Pledge of al-Aqabah to the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ from the people of Medinah. You should consult a book on seerah for details.

The hadith can be found in Sunan Abi Dawud in the book كتاب الخاتم under the section باب ما جاء في الذهب للنساء . The number will vary with the publisher, however it is numbered 4235 in the English translation published by Darussalam. حدثنا ابن نفيل، حدثنا محمد بن سلمة، عن محمد بن إسحاق، قال: حدثني يحيى بن عباد، عن أبيه، عباد بن عبد الله، عن عائشة رضي الله ...

In the hadith, Allah means "My servant was sick," and drops the word "servant" to emphasize how close the servant is to Himself. That is what confuses the man. The intention is to honor and put importance on the believer and to emphasize how wrong the man was in failing to attend his Muslim brother's rights. Similar language is in the ...
