Good question! The Prophet (saws) used humor to lighten the mood in many situations. He was known to always smile. When he laughed the whites of his teeth showed. When we read those ahadith, sometimes we don't really get the joke because we're living in a different time and different things are funny to us now. The Prophet (saws) is known to have said: I ...

The site you are quoting does not mention which book by Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyya they are referring to, and I could not find this hadith in any of his books. Nonetheless, it is in Hulyat al-Awliyā' (Arabic: حلية الأولياء وطبقات الأصفياء) by Abu Nu'aym al-Asbahani, Vol. 1, pp. 369, as mentioned — in addition to his other book Siyar as-Salaf as-Sālihīn (Arabic: ...

Some hadith sources "On the day of the Conquest of Makkah, the Messenger of Allah [SAW] granted amnesty to the people, except four men and two women. He said: 'Kill them, even if you find them clinging to the covers of Ka'bah.' (They were) 'Ikrimah bin Abi Jahl, 'Abdullah bin Khatal, Miqyas bin Subabah and 'Abdullah bin Sa'd bin Abi As-Sarh. 'Abdullah bin ...

The Prophet ﷺ returned to Medina after the conquest of Mecca because he considered himself one of al-Ansār, the dwellers of Medina. He had promised them on 21 Ramadan 8 A.H., one day after Mecca surrendered, that he would live with them. The incident is documented in a long hadith in both Sahih al-Bukhari and Sahih Muslim (partially quoted below) narrated on ...

The translation in your question does not match the translation in the link provided. It says: "I tied it at the ring where the Prophets tied it before (i.e. Buraq Wall or the Western Wall).", whereas the translation from the link you have provided says: فَرَكِبْتُهُ حَتَّى أَتَيْتُ بَيْتَ الْمَقْدِسِ فَرَبَطْتُهُ بِالْحَلْقَةِ الَّتِي يَرْبِطُ بِهِ ...

The most authentic ahadith can be found in sahih al-Bukhari on the authority of Anas ibn Malik like: The Prophet (ﷺ) said, "Zaid took over the flag and was martyred. Then it was taken by Jafar who was martyred as well. Then `Abdullah bin Rawaha took the flag but he too was martyred and at that time the eyes of Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) were full of tears. ...

Yes the Prophet May peace and Blessings be Upon Him joked with those around Him Anas ibn Maalik radiyallahu anhu relates, Rasoolullah sallallahu alaihe wasallam once told him jokingly, Ya dhal udhu-nayn (O two eared one) حَدَّثَنَا مَحْمُودُ بْنُ غَيْلانَ، قَالَ‏:‏ حَدَّثَنَا أَبُو أُسَامَةَ، عَنْ شَرِيكٍ، عَنْ عَاصِمٍ الأَحْوَلِ، عَنْ ...

Well first of all the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) had 4 daughters Zaynab, Roqiyah, Um-Kalthum and Fatima (may Allah pleased with them) زينب ، ورقية ، وأم كلثوم ، وفاطمة. And they got married in a very early age! To answer your question: As far as i can say after a certain research they didn't get married in a mosque (masjid) as this has never (...

There's a hadith in sahih al-Bukhari suggesting that the last prayer the prophet () lead in a his mosque was a maghrib prayer and he recited in it surat al-Mursalat. I heard the Prophet (ﷺ) reciting Surat-al-Mursalat `Urfan (77) in the Maghrib prayer, and after that prayer he did not lead us in any prayer till he died. (Sahih al-Bukhari) There are no ...

Well not only the seerah books but also the hadith compilations quote two major occupations: shepherding: Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet (ﷺ) said, "Allah did not send any prophet but shepherded sheep." His companions asked him, "Did you do the same?" The Prophet (ﷺ) replied, "Yes, I used to shepherd the sheep of the people of Mecca for some Qirats." ...

I think there is a misunderstanding of the hadith in question. The hadith you referred to is in Sahih Al-Bukhari without the mention of the Prophet ﷺ taking the sword, and is also documented in Riyad As-Salihin without a mention of the Prophet ﷺ putting the sword to the polytheist or that the polytheist accepted Islam. In both versions, the polytheist was ...

The foster siblings of the prophet () were: Hamzah ibn 'abd al-Muttalib حمزة بن عبد المطلب () as we have an evidence in the sunnah saying: The Prophet (ﷺ) said about Hamza's daughter, "I am not legally permitted to marry her, as foster relations are treated like blood relations (in marital affairs). She is the daughter of my foster brother." (Sahih al-...

All the known trustworthy facts actually reject the idea that Muhammad () even had the slightest knowledge about prophethood (and its burden) nor Allah's message before being appointed and even at the moment he was appointed he was in total fear for what he has seen and experienced as the first ahadith in Sahih al-Bukhari (and elsewhere which were narrated ...

There are quite a few biographies of the Prophet, suggesting the best one among them would likely be opinion based and would vary with the aim of the study. Ar-Raheeq Al-Makhtum (The Sealed Nectar) is one possible example available here.

What's the real name of Safina? Safina had before this incident a different name (Here an extract from a-Dhahabi's siyar a'lam an-Nubala'a): وَسَفِينَةٌ لَقَبٌ لَهُ ، وَاسْمُهُ مِهْرَانُ ، وَقِيلَ : رُومَانُ ، وَقِيلَ : قَيْسٌ . He was called Safina (as a nickname): and his name was Mihran, some said: Roman and some say Qays. According to Arabic ...

As said in my comment you may have confused the name of the mounts. The prophet () lived most of his life in Mecca and had most of his opponents (more explicitly the disbelievers among them and idolaters) in Mecca. In Medina he mainly had two kinds of opponents the Jews and the hypocrites. So it sounded rather irrational that this incident happened in ...

Before the revelation the prophet pbuh was not known for having followed any of the pagan believes and for rejecting them and rejecting even accepting their deities or to swear by their names. He is said to have been following the (true) religion of Ibrahim this can be found in the long sahih narrations of al-Bukhari here and here and that of Sahih Muslim... ...

Her intention was to kill the Prophet, not just to make him ill. The "harm" she meant there was clearly death because she went on to say, "if you were only a[n ordinary] king, I would relieve everyone of you". Did her little scheme relieve everyone of him (ie, his presence and authority)? No. Rather, he continued to be among the people and their leader for ...

There's reliable ahadith that the Prophet was poisoned after the Battle of Khaybar: Narrated Abu Huraira: When Khaibar was conquered, a (cooked) sheep containing poison, was given as a present to Allah's Apostle. Sahih al-Bukhari 4249 (see also Sahih al-Bukhari 3169) An important point here is the long time difference between when the Prophet was ...

In the name of Allah, the most compassionate, the most merciful Based on my research, Prophet Muhammad (S) passed the period of his teenage time in his uncle’s house (Abu-Talib), and was active in commercial affairs as well as helping his uncle. It is remarked that the Prophet has been commercial partner associated with Saaeb ibn Abi-Saaeb, and were ...

There are several of these books. I would advice for a translation of one of the early biographers such as this one (Ibn Ishaq is a fairely respected biographer of the prophet), but the English may seem too heavy. therefore, instead, I would point you to this book, also available in PDF (google search it). This website actually gives several PDFs (copyright ...

As Medi Saif pointed out, Prophet (peace be upon him) did not pray in the mosque for some time and he appointed Abu-Baker Assidiq to lead the prayer, a total of 17 prayers. Which suggests that the Prophet (peace be upon him) did not go to the mosque for at least 3 days. According to the Muslim historians and hadith scholars, As-sayuti, An-nassaiy and Ibn-...

I would suggest "Ar Raheeq Al Makhtum : The Sealed Nectar (Saif ur Rahman al Mubarakpuri) Revised Edition" which can be bought here. I cannot recommend it enough. It is beautiful.

There is only one Seerah book which satisfies most of the above qualities , specially considering the authenticity and quality. Many of the commonly heard stories about the prophet pbuh have been discarded as weak in this book. The Seerah book by Allama Shibli Nomani is strongly supported by authentic narrations which were explained to be of paramount ...
