Before answering your Questions, I'd like to explain my point of view by answering other questions. Does Islam allow slavery? The short answer is:Yes Islam allows slavery! Note: It is worth pointing out that you do not find any text in the Qur’aan or Sunnah which enjoins taking others as slaves, whereas there are dozens of texts in the Qur’aan and ...

The Quran was written in a certain socio-cultural environment. In that environment and era, slavery was not only common but quite the norm. See Slavery article in Wikipedia for history. In Arabia, before Islam, non-criminal sexual relationships between sexes comprised of three forms: Between husband and wife With slaves Out of wedlock and outside of ...

Lets start with what is authentic, Quran says about the marital relationship addressing husbands: ... And live with them in kindness. ... (4:19) And addressing the wives or women: ...And due to the wives is similar to what is expected of them, according to what is reasonable. ... [sahih international] ...And they (women) have rights similar to those ...

This one was tough to find a reference to, but it looks like this is the hadith being referred to: عَنْ أَبِي الدَّرْدَاءِ، قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏"‏ أَلاَ أُخْبِرُكُمْ بِأَفْضَلَ مِنْ دَرَجَةِ الصِّيَامِ وَالصَّلاَةِ وَالصَّدَقَةِ ‏"‏ ‏.‏ قَالُوا بَلَى ‏.‏ قَالَ ‏"‏ إِصْلاَحُ ذَاتِ الْبَيْنِ وَفَسَادُ ذَاتِ الْبَيْنِ الْحَالِقَةُ ...

Yes, this is a true story and actually it happened but with some difference in details. Figures: Abu Obaida Ibn Al-Jarrah (may Allah be pleased with him). Khalifah Omar Ibn Al-Khattab (may Allah be pleased with him). Place and Time Year: 17th Hijri, 638 AD. Place: The Levant (Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, and Palestine). Story The Muslim armies led by Abu ...

The hadith in question can be found, via multiple sahih chains of transmission, in the Sahihain as well as in the lesser Sunni collections, with slight variations in wording (Muslim 55:7504 & 55:7506, Bukhari 447 & 2812, Tirmidhi 3826, etc.). The authenticity of this prediction is well-established, and considered unassailable by Sunnis. While none ...

بسم الله الرحمن الرحیم The phrase Assalatu Khairum Minan Naum (Prayer is better than sleeping) was not part of the azan (calling for prayer) during the time of the Holy Prophet (PBUH) and it has been included in Azan later (1). Furthermore, Imam ash-Shafi‘i says in his Kitab al-Umm as such: "أكره في الأذان الصلوة خير من النوم لأن أبا محذورة لم يذكره.&...

The saying you're referring to is an ayah of the Qur'an, namely Surat al-'An'Am 108: ولا تسبوا الذين يدعون من دون الله فيسبوا الله عدوا بغير علم كذلك زينا لكل أمة عملهم ثم إلى ربهم مرجعهم فينبئهم بما كانوا يعملون And do not insult those they invoke other than Allah , lest they insult Allah in enmity without knowledge. Thus We have made pleasing to every ...

A hadith similar to the one you're looking for is collected by Ibn 'Asakir on the authority of Anas (ra). Al-Albani classified it as maudu' (fabricated) in Da'if al-Jami' as-Saghir #5410 (I checked the attribution to Al-Albani myself): من استمع قينة صب في أذنيه الآنك يوم القيامة "Whoever listens to a female singer, molten lead will be poured into his ...

What you mean is probably this one: من جلس إلى قينة صب في أذنه الآنك يوم القيامة. He who sits (and listens) to a singer will have molten lead poured into his ears in the day of judgement. The authenticity of this hadith is highly suspect and is considered by most scholars as mawduu (false). Following link is a fatwa in Arabic regarding it: http://...

The Hadith can be found in Ibn Maja, Darimi etc. for example it is the Hadith # 1562 in Tirmidhi: When the Prophet May Allah's peace and praise be on him was asked which people suffered the greatest affliction, he replied, "The prophets, then those who come next to them, then those who come next to them. A man is afflicted in keeping his religion. ...

In one of his articles, Jules Janssens gave the following piece of information about Avicenna's comments on the Qurʾān: Six (or perhaps more correctly, five) such fragments seem to have circulated as independent treatises and have been edited by ʿĀṣī. They concern S. 24, v. 35 (the famous "Light-verse"); S. 41, 11-12a (Then He directed Himself...); S. 87 (...

Did the Islamic calendar come after the invention of the English calendar? Yes and no. The Hijri calendar (i.e. the Islamic calendar) counts years based on the Hijrah — the year Mohammad and his followers left Mecca for Madinah — which is actually about the halfway point in Muhammad's twenty-odd year long ministry, so it's correlation to "how ...

The exact words that you quoted are not in any Sunni book that I have come across. However, a hadith attributed to 'Ali ibn Abi Tālib — not to the Prophet — was documented by Muhammad al-Munawi in Fayd al-Qadīr: قال علي كرم الله وجهه: من ترك اللحم أربعين يوما ساء خلقه ومن داوم عليه أربعين يوما قسا قلبه — NOTE: My own translation, so treat with care. ...

The hadith referred to in the video on the unspeakable thoughts is: عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ قَالَ جَاءَ نَاسٌ مِنْ أَصْحَابِ النَّبِيِّ صلى الله عليه وسلم فَسَأَلُوهُ إِنَّا نَجِدُ فِي أَنْفُسِنَا مَا يَتَعَاظَمُ أَحَدُنَا أَنْ يَتَكَلَّمَ بِهِ.‏ قَالَ: وَقَدْ وَجَدْتُمُوهُ.‏ قَالُوا نَعَمْ.‏ قَالَ: ذَاكَ صَرِيحُ الإِيمَانِ It is narrated on the ...

I searched a lot for asked words in the book Ilal Al-Shara'i by Saduq but couldn't find anywhere in both the volumes. I was unable to find it in any reliable source also. Even by the sound of the words it doesn't seems to be authentic.

According to many hadiths in Sahih Muslim, it is clearly forbidden, so it is haram. You can see them here. According to Quran, there is no mention about paint, painting or painters. You can search the word "paint" in the same link I gave with any English Translation. Here is the result, nothing. I also checked in the Turkish Translation of Quran, there is ...

Yeah, imam Ali(a.s.) has an undotted sermon, it is as follow: الْحَمْدُ للَّهِ أَهْلِ الْحَمْدِ وَ مَأْوَاهُ، وَ لَهُ أَوْکدُ الْحَمْدِ وَ أَحْلَاهُ، وَ أسعَدُ أَسْرَعُ الْحَمْدِ وَ أَسْرَاهُ، وَ أَطْهَرُ الْحَمْدِ وَ أَسْمَاهُ، وَ أَکرَمُ الْحَمْدِ وَ أَوْلَاهُ. الْوَاحِدِ الأَحَدِ الصَّمَدِ، لَا وَالِدَ لَهُ وَ لَا وَلَدَ . سَلَّطَ الْمُلُوک وَ ...

The hadith you are inquiring about is most likely the one documented in Al-Mu'jam al-Awsat, but the name of the place is not mentioned in the hadith: عن عبيد بن إسحاق العطار حدثنا عمار بن سيف، عن الأعمش، عن أبي سفيان، عن جابر رضي الله عنه قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: أوحى الله إلى ملك من الملائكة أن اقلب مدينة كذا وكذا على أهلها. قال: إن فيه ...

According to Shia Islam death in this life is not equal to becoming nothingness until being recreated for the Judgement day, but there is another life style that we will experience after death and before the Judgement day. This after-death but before-the-Hour life is to happen in a world intermediate to this and after-the-Judgement worlds, and is called ...

Actually, there is dispute over how old Khadija was when she married the prophet. It's just not as famous as the one over Aysha's age. Some historians put her as young as 25 while others put her as old as 45. The most wide spread view remains that she was 40 (although the claim that she was 28 is gaining traction). The main reference for her being 40 is a ...

This should be the Hadith you are looking for: Narrated Ibn Mas`ud: Allah's Apostle taught me the Tashah-hud as he taught me a Sura from the Qur'an, while my hand was between his hands. (Tashah-hud was) all the best compliments and the prayers and the good things are for Allah. Peace and Allah's Mercy and Blessings be on you, O Prophet! Peace be ...

I think this is the hadith you are looking for: Narrated Abdullah ibn Amr ibn al-'As: The Prophet (sallallahu 'alaihi wa sallam) said: If anyone prays at night reciting regularly ten verses, he will not be recorded among the negligent; if anyone prays at night and recites a hundred verses, he will be recorded among those who are obedient to ...

It's probably this hadith narrated in Sunan Ahmad: عَنْ جُبَيْرِ بْنِ مُطْعِمٍ عَنْ النَّبِيِّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ كُلُّ عَرَفَاتٍ مَوْقِفٌ وَارْفَعُوا عَنْ بَطْنِ عُرَنَةَ وَكُلُّ مُزْدَلِفَةَ مَوْقِفٌ وَارْفَعُوا عَنْ مُحَسِّرٍ وَكُلُّ فِجَاجِ مِنًى مَنْحَرٌ وَكُلُّ أَيَّامِ التَّشْرِيقِ ذَبْحٌ Narrated by Jubair ibn Mut'...
