Assalamualaikum, It is not obligatory to break the fast with dates but it is highly recommended by the Prophet. Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) is quoted as saying: “When one of you is fasting, he should break his fast with dates; but if he cannot get any, then (he should break his fast) with water, for water is purifying” (Abu Dawood: 975). So, it is your free ...

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.

Islamic books on manners refer to the following hadith as guidance on not disturbing the sleeping person (small portion of a longer hadith): ...Allah's Apostle (ﷺ) said: Milk these for us.

Celebrating ones birthday is not a tradition that was or has been established in Arabia in the time of the Prophet. There is no direct command in Quran or Hadith against celebration of birthdays, either.

Short answer: No it isn't. Nevertheless it is highly recommended to wear the best of your clothes in such occasions and this actually has backup in the sunnah. And in some cases this may mean that one ought to buy new clothes. 'Umar saw a silken cloak being sold in the market and he brought it to Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) and said, "O Allah's Messenger (ﷺ)!...

Surnames, as we know them, weren't really a thing for Arabs during the time of the prophet. Rather, they were identified using a patronym e.g. "Muhammad ibn Abdullah" (Muhammad, son of Abdullah) or "Fatimah bint Muhammad" (Fatimah, daughter of Muhammad). This sort of naming was already a long-established cultural practice rather than any ...

I wish someone edits the question and deletes the body of question. Sunnah is every rule related to worship, inheritance, business dealings, marriage, halal, haram, jihad, etc. sahih sunnah is revelation from Allah and only Allah can make something halal and haram. Rejection of Sahih Sunnah removes one from fold of Islam. Ahadith are sayings of prophet, ...

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 ...

Allah says: إِنَّ اللَّهَ يَأْمُرُ بِالْعَدْلِ وَالْإِحْسَانِ وَإِيتَاءِ ذِي الْقُرْبَىٰ وَيَنْهَىٰ عَنِ الْفَحْشَاءِ وَالْمُنكَرِ وَالْبَغْيِ يَعِظُكُمْ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَذَكَّرُونَ Verily, Allah orders justice and good conduct and giving to relatives and he forbids immorality and bad conduct and transgression.

For example, in TV programs when they scare people, they are just kidding with them. There are lots of horror movies on tv whete people are 'scared'. But of course they aren't 'scared'. They are merely acting. In the example you gave, they aren't truly 'scaring' people, but joking with them. This has nothing to do with 'scaring' people in the proper sense ...
