This is proper adab that is taught by Quran. For Muhammad: إِنَّ اللَّـهَ وَمَلَائِكَتَهُ يُصَلُّونَ عَلَى النَّبِيِّ يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا صَلُّوا عَلَيْهِ وَسَلِّمُوا تَسْلِيمًا 33:56 For Prophets and Angels: 37:181 وَسَلَامٌ عَلَى الْمُرْسَلِينَ For Sahaba: وَالسّـٰبِقونَ الأَوَّلونَ مِنَ المُهـٰجِرينَ وَالأَنصارِ وَالَّذينَ اتَّبَعوهُم ...

If you are an arabic reader check this article from IslamWeb(which can also be translated to English) that states that the persons who washed the Prophet were: the prophet's family members who were: Al-Abbas, Ali, Al-Fadl and Kuthm (Al Abbas' sons), Shakran (the prophet's servant), Usama bin Zaid, and Aous bin Khawlah. However they washed him wearing his ...

It should be noted, that the hadith in your question is not Authentic, it is false. Ka'b never predicted that Umar would die in three days, furthermore the description of Umar and when he would die is not in the Tauraat.

Aisha reported: The Prophet (SAW) said, “Do not abuse the dead, for they have reached what they put forward.” In another narration, the Prophet said, “When your companion dies, then leave him alone without speaking badly about him.” Source: Ṣaḥīḥ al-Bukhārī 1329 Qais ibn Sa’d reported: A funeral passed by the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be ...

The noble Sahabah had too much Taqwa (fear of God) to be lying against Allah's (ﷻ) religion. But the same cannot be said for random unknown Wikipedia writers. For example, they say the statement of ibn Abbas doesn't forbid it but in that statement Ibn Abbas is only saying that masturbation compared to fornication is "better" i.e, the lesser of two evils. ...

First of all Allah the Almighty Himself has made a promise (HE even has sworn) to preserve it (15:9): Indeed, it is We who sent down the Qur'an and indeed, We will be its guardian. We only know about the human part of the preservation I'll quote what come in to my mind: Tawatur this means Quran has always (from the time of sahaba on) been transmitted by ...

Note that the hadith narrated by imam at-Tirmidhi in three versions (here the 3rd, while the 2nd is only a commentary on the first saying that 'Abdurrahman ibn 'Awf narrated it once without quoting his own name -so he quoted only nine sahaba-) appears in sunan ibn Majah, sunan abi Dawod, Musnad Ahmad and many other sources too. The list of sahaba quoted in ...

Imam Ali a.s. washed him directly but companions of Imam Ali a.s. helped him in pouring water and etc. also the first one who offered the Janasa prayer was Imam Ali a.s. and then male Sahaba and then female Sahaba. The Prophet SAWW was buried in his own home and the room was small few persons could enter and offer prayer and all could not pray together. ...

A Sunni view on the issue is that these are not accurate. First, it is not established that the prophet gave Fadak to her. Contrary to that there are hadith stating that she asked for it during the prophet's lifetime but the prophet refused her request. See e.g. [Sunnan Abi Dawood; Kitab Al-Kharaj, Wal-Fai' Wal-Imarah; hadith 2966]. Abu Bakr refused the ...

I'm sure i saw a Question about this hadith (or maybe an answer including it) here before. But the answer is simple this is a Narration from Sahih al Bukhari. And Abu Huraira (May Allah be pleased with him) didn't change anything (and Allah knows best) but when you read the statement(s) you find out it has two separated parts. One part where Abu Huraira (...

All perfect praise be to Allah First of all i would like to encourage you on starting exploration of ahadees, but i would like to add that you need to keep in contact with a good shiekh al hadith for getting all the answers of your questions side by side, and have a book on history of sunni ahadees, their rules and history, such book will also be suggested ...

This is indeed a strange but acceptable kunyah or surname knowing that abu Bakr (whos real name is Abdullah ibn abi Quhafah) had three sons: Abdurrahman, Abudllah and Muhammad and three daughters: Asma'. 'Aisha and Umm Kalthoom. So it would rather sound logical if his kunyah or nickname was abu Abdarrahman or Abu Abdullah or ... or abu Umm Kalthoom. Scholars ...

Abu Hurairah (RA)'s large amount of narrations are due to multiple reasons working together. We have to also keep in mind the following statement by Abdullah ibn Umar (RA), the second highest narrator, vouching for Abu Hurairah's hadith knowledge: Ibn 'Umar said to Abu Hurairah: "You used to stick to the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) most out of all of us, ...

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 ...

Animal fighting is forbidden in Islam. There is a hadith on it in Sunan Abu Dawud and Jamee at-Tirmizhi: نهى رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم عن التحريش بين البهائم The Messenger of Allah ﷺ prohibited instigating fights between beasts. It is also rationally evil because it is cruelty to animals causing suffering and possibly even death without any ...

السَّلاَمُ عَلَيْكُمْ وَرَحْمَةُ اللهِ وَبَرَكَاتُهُ Imam Nafi' (RA) further states, 'And ibn Umar, Radi-Allahu anhu, during Hajj or Umrah used to hold on to his beard with his fist and cut off whatever was in excess of that.' (Bukhari vol.2 pg.875; Kitab-ul-Libas no.5892) Note: This hadith has also been narrated by Sayyiduna Abu Huraira [...

By name, as the answer and comment above indicate, it was only Zaid (RA). Generally, all of them in this verse: Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah ; and those with him are forceful against the disbelievers, merciful among themselves. You see them bowing and prostrating [in prayer], seeking bounty from Allah and [His] pleasure. Their mark is on their faces ...

Yes zaid is the one mentioned in Quran. Have a read at this ayah **وَإِذْ تَقُولُ لِلَّذِي أَنْعَمَ اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَأَنْعَمْتَ عَلَيْهِ أَمْسِكْ عَلَيْكَ زَوْجَكَ وَاتَّقِ اللَّهَ وَتُخْفِي فِي نَفْسِكَ مَا اللَّهُ مُبْدِيهِ وَتَخْشَى النَّاسَ وَاللَّهُ أَحَقُّ أَن تَخْشَاهُ ۖ فَلَمَّا قَضَىٰ *زَيْدٌ مِّنْهَا وَطَرًا زَوَّجْنَاكَهَا لِكَيْ لَا ...

Perhaps the most significant reason of this issue could be related to this matter that as an unwritten general rule, parents (both of father and mother) are considered as the most dear persons from the viewpoint of everybody. Hence in the mentioned issue as you said: Let(or Shall) my parents be sacrificed for you" while talking to Prophet Muhammad (...

Most of the Shi'ite sects including the Twelvers, which form majority of them, cannot resolve with the matter. But there are some minorities like Zaidiya who believe in the uprightness of the three Companions or at least do not curse them. Also there are those who call themselves as 'rational Shia' who seem to compromise with the hostility towards the ...

It depends on what you mean by "authenticity". This story is narrated as an athar (anecdote), where authenticity for historical quotation is not held to the same level as hadith, nor follow the same methodology. From a chain of narration aspect, holding the story to hadith standards, it is severed and has unknown people, so it is not to be considered ...

The Sahaba (who comprise of the Muhajirun and Ansar) are deemed trustworthy for many reasons: Allah attests to their truthfulness and success لِلْفُقَرَاء الْمُهَاجِرِينَ الَّذِينَ أُخْرِجُوا مِن دِيارِهِمْ وَأَمْوَالِهِمْ يَبْتَغُونَ فَضْلاً مِّنَ اللَّهِ وَرِضْوَاناً وَيَنصُرُونَ اللَّهَ وَرَسُولَهُ أُوْلَئِكَ هُمُ الصَّادِقُونَ . وَالَّذِينَ ...

Yes, the partial quote provided is by Ibn Taymiyyah, but as typically is the case, the quote is either chopped, taken out of context, or misquoted altogether. The quote is from Iqtidā' al-Ṡerāt al-Mustāqīm (Arabic: اقتضاء الصراط المستقيم لمخالفة أصحاب الجحيم), Dār 'Ālam al-Kotob (Arabic: دار عالم الكتب), Beirut, Lebanon: 1999, Vol. 2, pp. 276-279. No, Ibn ...

The athar attributed to Umar was documented in Sharh Zād al-Mustaqni' by Mohammad al-Mukhtār ash-Sahanqīti. It is about when 'Umar was judging a case in court. When he told one of the witnesses that he did not know him, a man among the attendees rose and said that he knew the witness, so 'Umar questioned him: فجاءه برجل فقال عمر للرجل: أتعرفه؟ قال: أعرفه ...

Note that the mosque in medina was only built after the hijra of the Prophet (), so one can only tell (assume) that the sahaba or sahabi who were/was sent to teach the people of Yatrib about Islam and the Qur'an were/was the person who used to lead the prayers. In sahih al-Bukhari we may read: The first people who came to us (in Medina) were Mus'ab bin `...

Neither the number of companions of the Prophet ﷺ who were told of their place in Paradise while they were still alive is known, nor are all their names. In addition to the well-known hadith about the ten companions who were given the good tidings of being in Paradise: حَدَّثَنَا هِشَامُ بْنُ عَمَّارٍ، حَدَّثَنَا عِيسَى بْنُ يُونُسَ، حَدَّثَنَا صَدَقَةُ ...

"A.S" -> "Alayh es Salam" علیه السلام means salam to him. "R.A" -> "RaziaAllah o Anh" رضی الله عنه means God be satisfied of him. All Muslims use "A.S" for all prophets and use "pbuh" for holy prophet Mohammad. Also Shia Muslims use "A.S" their 12 Imams after holy prophet include Imam Ali. Sunni Muslims use "R.A" for 3 khalifas after holy prophet and use "...

From the Tafsir: Ahkam ul Quran by Abu Bakr Ahmad bin Ali Al-Razi Al-Jassas Surah Maidah, section on marriage with the people of the Book: وروي أن عثمان بْن عفان تزوج نائلة بنت الفرافصة الكلبية وهي نصرانية وتزوجها على نسائه وروي عن طلحة بْن عبيد الله أنه تزوج يهودية من أهل الشام It is narrated that Uthman Bin Affan married Na'ila bint al-...

The word entire must be the word responsible for not attracting any answers (maybe in fear of down-votes also). But excluding the word entire, the answer is obvious. Prophet PBUH used to recite the Quran infront of the Sahaba R. And these recitings includes very long recitings. Such as we know a well-known hadith in Sahih Muslim where the tahajjud salah of ...
