Dear scholars, recently a paper was circulated. One of my friends gave it to me and advised me to copy and distribute it so as to gain some reward. The paper includes a hadith speaking of a meeting between the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) and Iblis. According to the hadith, the Prophet asked Iblis some questions and Iblis answered. What is the reality about this hadith? Is it fabricated or authentic? What is the responsibility of the person who disseminates this story among people?
I have read many articles on Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) and the number of his wives differs. The number eleven (11) doesn't include Mariya al-Qibtiya, known as Mary the Copt. I would like to know more about this. Some Orientalists said that Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) was literate. They've mentioned two examples: The Treaty of Hudaibiah and two versions I've read: A. The prophet signed “son of Abdullah” B. The prophet omitted the word “apostle of God” Another story is that at his death bed, the prophet asked for a pen and ink to write who was to be his successor. Hope to hear from you soon. Thank you, wa-salaam. P.S.: Glad 'Ask About Islam' is available :)
As-Salamu`alyakum. I have heard that if any Muslim wishes to see Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) in his dream, he can see him. Is there any specific method to achieve this goal? I mean to say, is there any du`a' (supplication) or recitation of any particular Qur'anic verse or hadith in order to see the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) while one is sleeping?
Dear scholars, as-salamu `alaykum. Who is the last Prophet? Will any other Prophet come after Prophet Muhammad? Jazakum Allah khayran.
As-salamu `alaykum. We are asked to repeat “Allahumma Salli `Ala Sayyidina Muhammad” many times throughout the day. Could you please explain why? Are we asking Allah to bless the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) or are we asking Allah to literally pray for him? We pray for Allah our Creator and Master, but why would Allah pray for His Messenger and Servant? Jazakum Allah khayran.
