420 Bukhaari & Ahmad.

421 ibid.

422 Muslim, Abu 'Awaanah, Ahmad & Abu Daawood.

*NB: This hadeeth does not prove that those following an imaam should not share with the imaam in saying: Allaah listens to the one who praises Him, just as it does not prove that the imaam does not share with those following him in saying: Our Lord, to You be all Praise. This is because the purpose of this hadeeth is not to set out exactly what the imaam and his followers should say in this position; rather, it explains that the followers' tahmeed should be said after the imaam's tasmee'. This is supported by the fact that the Prophet (sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam) used to say the tahmeed when he was the imaam, and also because the generality of his saying, "Pray as you have seen me praying", dictates that the follower should say what the imaam says, e.g. tasmee', etc. Those respected brothers who referred to us in this issue should consider this, and perhaps what we have mentioned is satisfactory. Whoever would like further discussion on this issue should refer to the article by the Haafiz Suyooti on this matter in his book al-Haawi lil Fataawi (1/529).

423 Bukhaari & Muslim; Tirmidhi declared it saheeh.

424 Bukhaari & Muslim. The raising of the hands here is narrated in a mutawaatir way from the Messenger (sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam), and the majority of scholars have supported it, including some Hanafis. See the previous footnote under Rukoo'.

425 ibid.

426 ibid.

427 Bukhaari & Ahmad. Ibn al-Qayyim (rahimahullaah) erred on this point in Zaad al-Ma'aad, rejecting the combination of "O Allaah!" with "and", despite the fact that it is found in Saheeh al-Bukhaari, Musnad Ahmad, in Nasaa'i & Ahmad again via two routes of narration from Abu Hurairah, in Daarimi as a hadeeth of Ibn 'Umar, in Baihaqi from Abu Sa'eed al-Khudri, & in Nasaa'i again as a hadeeth of Abu Musa al-Ash'ari.

428 Bukhaari & Muslim; Tirmidhi declared it saheeh.

429 Muslim & Abu 'Awaanah.

430 ibid.

431 jadd: wealth, might, power; i.e., the one who has wealth, sons, might and power in this world will not benefit from them in front of You; his possessions will not save him from You: only righteous deeds will benefit or save anyone.

432 Muslim & Abu 'Awaanah.

433 Muslim, Abu 'Awaanah & Abu Daawood.

434 Abu Daawood & Nasaa'i with a saheeh isnaad. It is given in Irwaa' (335).
