495 Ahmad, with a saheeh isnaad. Tirmidhi related a part of it and declared it saheeh. It is given in Silsilah al-Ahaadeeth as-Saheehah.

496 Bukhaari & Muslim; the hadeeth shows that the sinful from among those regular at Prayer, will not remain the Fire forever; in fact, even those given to missing prayers out of laziness will not remain in the Fire forever, this is authentic - see as-Saheehah (2054).

497 Ar. haseer: a mat made of date-palm leaves or straw, etc.

498 This was because his mosque was not covcered with mats, etc. This is evident from a great many ahaadeeth, such as the next one and the one of Abu Sa'eed later.

499 Muslim & Abu 'Awaanah.

500 Ahmad, Siraaj & Baihaqi, with a saheeh isnaad.

501 Bukhaari & Muslim.

502 ibid. A khumrah is a piece of matting, palm-fibre, or other material which is big enough for a man to place his face on it in sajdah; the term does not apply to larger pieces.

503 ibid.

504 Muslim & Abu 'Awaanah. Ar. labisa usually means 'to wear', but here it is used to mean 'to use', i.e. to sit on; hence 'wearing' includes 'sitting on', so this indicates that it is prohibited (haraam) to sit on silk, because of the prohibition on wearing it established in the Saheehs of Bukhaari and Muslim, and others. In fact, a clear forbiddance of sitting on silk is related in these, so do not be confused by the fact that some leading scholars allow it.

505 Bukhaari & Muslim.

506 Abu Daawood & Haakim who declared it saheeh and Dhahabi agreed.

507 Bukhaari in his Juz' Raf' al-Yadain, Abu Daawood with a saheeh isnaad, Muslim & Abu 'Awaanah. It is given in Irwaa' (316).

To raise the hands here, and with every takbeer, was a view voiced by Ahmad, as in Ibn al-Qayyim's Badaa'i' (3/89): "Athram quoted from him (Imaam Ahmad) that on being asked about raising the hands, he said: With every movement down and up. Athram said: I saw Abu 'Abdullaah (i.e. Imaam Ahmad) raising his hands in prayer with every movement down and up."

This was also the opinion of Ibn al-Mundhir & Abu 'Ali of the Shaafi'is, and also a view of Maalik and Shaafi'i themselves, as in Tarh at-Tathreeb. The raising of the hands here is also authentically-reported from Anas bin Maalik, Ibn 'Umar, Naafi', Taawoos, Hasan Basri, Ibn Seereen & Ayyoob as- Sikhtiaani, as in Musannaf Ibn Abi Shaibah (1/106) with saheeh narrations from them.

508 Ahmad & Abu Daawood with a good isnaad.

509 Bukhaari & Baihaqi .
