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 ...

There is no answer for this question, we have no concrete evidence about what happened before Lot's time... And even if it was found that there were homosexuals before Lot, then it's false . Apart from being non-validated, it contradicts what Allah said, and as Allah also said : “Who is more knowledgeable: you or Allah?” [2:140] So it's not our job to ...

If you want an Islamic answer, I can't help much, but a historical answer is easy. The Pentateuch, which figures in Moses, Adam, Abraham and Ishmael, is the first five books of the Jewish and Christian Scripture. Tradition ascribes the books to Moses himself and would make it written almost two thousand of years before Mohammed. The further adventures of ...

It is revelation that was sent to him. Its contents include what is mentioned in the Quran: In Surah Al-A'la, which at least includes the preceding sentence, and could mean the entire surah: He has certainly succeeded who purifies himself. And mentions the name of his Lord and prays. But you prefer the worldly life, While the Hereafter is better and more ...

Clear answers from the qur'an According the qur'an certainly "yes" read for example: [We sent] messengers as bringers of good tidings and warners so that mankind will have no argument against Allah after the messengers. And ever is Allah Exalted in Might and Wise. (4:165) ... You are only a warner, and for every people is a guide. (13:7) And We ...

This definition of messenger is debatable and has issues with it. To answer your question though, we know for a fact that Adam (AS) was not a messenger without resorting to any theorized definitions. It comes in a hadith regarding the Day of Judgement: Allah will gather the believers on the Day of Resurrection in the same way (as they are gathered in this ...

On the terminology of imam at-Tirmidhi First of all the terminology that layman and scholars now use for hadith qualification is rather simplified and based on definitions made by later scholars from the time of ibn Salah on wards. Before that each scholar had his own terminology. And imam at-Tirmidhi's qualification is a topic discussed by many scholars and ...

Yes. Hadith record that the prophet proposed to Zaynab bint Jahsh after her iddah: لما انقضت عدة زينب، قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم لزيد: فاذكرها علي When the 'Iddah of Zainab was over, the Messenger of Allah (s.a.w) said to Zaid: 'Make, mention of me to her (for marriage)'. — Muslim As for Safiyyah bint Huyayy, she was a prisoner of war and the ruling ...

I'm not a scholar, so take what I say with a grain of salt. In general, according to Islam, actions are judged according to the intentions. On the authority of Ameer ul-Mu’mineen (the Commander of the Faithful), Abu Hafs `Umar ibn al-Khattab radiAllahu anhu, who said: I heard the Messenger of Allah sallAllahu alayhi wa sallam say: “Actions are but by ...

Seth (شيث) is not mentioned by name in the Quran. He is mentioned in a hadith recorded by Ibn Hibban, whose authenticity has been criticized by some. There is scarce evidence about him. أنزل على شيث خمسون صحيفة fifty pages were sent down to Sheeth — Sahih Ibn Hibban

This verse does not necessarily imply that there were separate prophets for the Jinn. Ibn Abbas, Mujahid ibn Jabr and others held the opinion that the Messengers here were all human - rather some of them had followers among the Jinn and they sent Jinn disciples to preach among their own kind ... hence these were the messengers of the Messengers of Allah. It ...

I asked this question in judaism.SE, and received an answer as can be seen in the link. To best of my understanding, according to the Jewish tradition, Abraham compiled some books/scriptures during his lifetime. I believe these scriptures could be what the Quran is referring to. However, they are now lost, so we don't know the exact contents of them.

There are different views regarding the time from which he was a prophet, depending on that the answer could be the angels (2:30-33) or his family (his wife Eve and his children).

Yes وحي has been sent to other than the prophets. For example you may find in the Quran of it being sent to the disciples (5:111), to the bees (16:68), to the earth (99:5), to the mother of Moses (28:7, 20:38) etc. Similarly the hadith that mentions an incident among the Children of Israel when an angel was sent to test them, and the hadith that mentions ...

As'salaamu alaikum, brother. Yes, it is possible for people to worship the Prophet's grave, and this is in spite of the Dua reported in the hadith you cited. Let's look to the Qur'an for some understanding.... Firstly, the idea that every Dua offered by a Prophet is always always accepted and approved is a faulty idea. Prophet Ibraheem prayed for his mushrik ...

First of all, do not harm yourself or think about killing yourself, Allah is the one who gives life and takes life. You felt bad the moment you 'thought' about it and you repented and even if you said it at loud,if you sincerely repent to Allah, Allah will still forgive you. Allah is The Most Merciful, The Entirely Merciful and it's the month of Ramadan, ...

The nations were punished for the crime of rejecting the Prophet itself and rejecting his call to monotheism. The other evil deeds were an addition to that, since the Prophet came to warn them against those deeds as well. But, those other deeds were not necessarily needed. Rejecting the Prophet and Shirk was enough and was sufficient reason to punish. ...

The hadith you base it on does not say what you think it says. The hadith is that: Allah gave a choice to one of (His) slaves either to choose this world or what is with Him in the Hereafter. He chose the latter. (Sahih al-Bukhari) The obvious meaning is that Allah gave the messenger the choice to stay in the world and see the fruition of Muslim victory ...

No, the Quran says: محمد ... رسول الله وخاتم النبيين Muhammad is ... the Messenger of Allah and last of the prophets. — Quran 33:40 In its tafsir the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ himself clearly stated: أنا خاتم النبيين لا نبي بعدي I am the last of the prophets, there is no prophet after me. — Tirmidhi , Abi Dawud The same statement that there is no prophet after ...
