Note that Ibn Saad's Tabaqat is not really something known to have very authentic hadith. It is more of a history book, and the standards for authentication in history are very low. I couldn't really find this narration when I tried to look for it, but I think the explanation is quite simple. It refers to a nafl fast while the hadith in Bukhari refers to the ...

Not the exact words, but the meaning has been narrated in the exegesis of the verse: وقاسمهما إني لكما لمن الناصحين فدلاهما بغرور And he swore [by Allah ] to them, "Indeed, I am to you from among the sincere advisors." So he made them fall, through deception. — Quran 7:21-22 عن السدي: ألم أنهكما عن تلكما الشجرة قال آدم: رب إنه حلف لي بك، ولم ...

This story appears in a long hadith in Sahih al-Bukhari. I'd recommend you to read the whole hadith as I will only display here the relevant part: ...

When he asked Ishmael's wife about him, she ...

Trust or "Amanah" refers to when you are given an object or are given responsibilities to take care of.

Taking care of responsibilities would be to fulfill them according to how they should be fulfilled. The Prophet (SAW) even before ...

Inter-religious marriage that is permitted in Islam is the marriage of a Muslim man to a Jewish or Christian woman. Such a marriage is not however encouraged under ordinary circumstances, rather the scholars among the Malikis, Hanafis, Shafi'is and Hanbalis have classed it as makruh or khilaf al-awla.

There is another avenue of proving that the original Torah doesn't exist. Simply, showing where Allah corrects the current Bible and Gospel. In the Bible, Eve was tempted by the serpent and ate the fruit: 4 “You will not certainly die,” the serpent said to the woman. 5 “For God knows that when you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like ...

Here are words of Allah in Torah in Hebrew bible. Word of God Elohim is derived from name of Allah אלח in ancient hebrew lexicon Compressive hebrew etymological dictionary state that etmyos means "that which is true sense"  is the only true word in Hebrew.

The hadith has been criticized because of the weakness of عبد الله بن سلمة see Al-Arnaa’oot and Al-Albani. Ibn Kathir postulated that a mix-up has happened between the miracles and the ten commandments.

I found at least two interpretations of the hadith that are at least sensible. Obviously, there is discussion regarding the authenticity of the hadith. However, I will assume for a moment that the hadith is authentic. Firstly, it could be that the hadith omits a part of the conversation. Basically, like this: So they went to the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) to ...

According to, IslamQA Link, it is permissible for men to open a shop and sell women clothing. Now, let me teach you something simple.

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. ...

Yes the translation of the Prophet's saying is correct. The part which could have been better elaborated is the text before it: على رجل من الأنصار، وهو يعظ أخاه في الحياء Which has been translated as: Ansari (man) who was admonishing his brother regarding Haya' What this means is that the Ansari was criticizing his brother for his excessive Haya' which ...

This hadith refers to the events of the First Aqabah. That is when 12 people from the people of Madinah (Yathrib at the time) came to Makkah to pledge allegiance to the Prophet (SAW) and Islam. Ubada ibn As-Samit is referred to as "one of the Nuqaba." Nuqaba is the plural for Naqeeb. Naqeeb means a "representative," "watcher," ...

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.

This hadith is a parable and shows a lot of meanings, however they are concentrated about the virtue of the Muslim ummah. As to how this work time/wages can be interpreted, some among them imam ibn Hajar in his literal interpretation stated that the comparison is rather to be taken from the point o view that Muslims are the last of these ummmahs (the last to ...

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.

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 ...

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 ...

Allah is not actually a man who employed some laborers. The Jews, Christians and Muslims aren't actually laborers who worked a fraction of a day for fixed wages. No hypothetical Jews or Christians actually got angry because none of them actually existed and none of this actually happened. And even if it did happen literally and exactly as described, you ...

The point of the hadith isn't the times. The point is that the Muslims get two Qirat while the Jews and Christians got one Qirat for what appears to be the same work. The Jews and Christians saying "we did more work" is just exaggeration on their part. They are claiming that they had it more difficult and the Muslims have it easy. It doesn't mean ...

The Day of Judgement will occur on another "earth" that Allah will create replacing this Earth. Allah says: [It will be] on the Day the earth will be replaced by another earth, and the heavens [as well], and all creatures will come out before Allah, the One, the Prevailing. (14:48)

There isn't any authoritative source which mentions the average lifespan of a Jinn (see islamweb). Although it is generally believed that they have long lifespans.

A possible explanation is that some of them were unaware of the abrogation. They were not present at the time when the Prophet ﷺ forbade it and so held onto what they previously knew until Umar and the other sahaba informed them that the Prophet had later forbade it. قوله (استمتعنا على عهد رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم وأبي بكر وعمر) هذا محمول على أن الذي ...

It was a decision that was up to the leader. So if you were the Khalifah, you could have decided to kill the men responsible and it would have been valid because it was according to the Shariah. The Rasool (saw) ordered the killing of Jews because they betrayed treaties he signed with them. Like the Banu Qurayzah, the Rasool (saw) besieged them after they ...

He will say, 'I am not fit for that but you'd better go to Abraham as he is ...

This du'a is part of a sahih hadith that was compiled by imam Muslim in his Sahih here and here with the wording: اللَّهُمَّ أْجُرْنِي فِي مُصِيبَتِي وَأَخْلِفْ لِي خَيْرًا مِنْهَا It was translated on sunnah.com as: O Allah, reward me for my affliction and give me something better than it in exchange for it, Imam Malik compiled it in his al-Muwatta' ...

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 ...

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 ...

Can a person get Jannahtul Firdaws by just reciting this after wudu, even if he doesn't do much good deeds? As much as I know, I don't think so; since the deeds of human is a sort of necessary complementary for it -- and other similar issues.

To my knowledge, this came from the prophet but was made famous by Persian philosopher Avicenna, who provided new interpretations to many philosophical religious teachings to the people of his time. This could be why it does not appear directly as a Hadith. There is a good podcast on Avicenna in the series 'Philosophize This' - this is where I heard this.

All those rules have their sense. It is however good to understand the sense of those rules. Sometimes, those rules are taken as forbidding something that was not really meant; I think of the rule not to depict humans or animals that was intended to prevent us from worshipping in front of those, now extended to not read or draw comics. The rules you mention ...

What you may mean is a rather more general hadith about afflicted people The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said: “Whoever sees an afflicted person then says: ‘All praise is due to Allah who saved me from that which He has afflicted you with, and blessed me greatly over many of those whom He has created, (Al-ḥamdulillāhi alladhī āfānī mimmabtalāka bihī wa faḍḍalanī ...

No, it's not discussed in those terms. Insanity or what would now be termed mental illness, is not considered a separate and distinct category in Islamic law. It's discussed as a cause of legal disability in such broad areas as taxation, marriage, divorce, contracts and religious obligations. This, as all Islamic law, is derived from the Qu'ran, Hadith and ...

The answer is given in the hadith itself. On the Night of Isra, fifty prayers were made obligatory upon the Prophet. Then it was decreased until it was made five. Then it was called out: 'O Muhammad!
