‘Ubaadah bin ‘Saamit R.A. said, ‘Once Rasulullah S.W. S.W. came out to inform us the true date of Laylatul Qadr. (Unfortunately at that time) an argument took place between two muslim men, whereupon he said, “I came out in order to inform you as to when Laylatul Qadr was, but because two people argued (the fixing of the correct date) was taken away. Perhaps that is better for you. So seek it among the ninth, seventh and fifth nights”.
Reported in Mishkaat.
Be very fearful concerning parents’ rights. Do not blabber to them out of anger because their curse affects a person to extent that one does not die without first suffering the punishment in this world. It is mentioned in a Hadith of Mishkaat Shareef that one who troubles his parents will never die without first being punished.(Mishkaat p.421)
She is the daughter of Rasûlullâh sallallâhu ‘alayhi wa sallam. He loved her very much. She was married to ’Abû al-‘Âs bin ar-Rabî’ radiyallâhu ‘anhu. When she accepted Islam and her husband refused to do so, she severed relations with him and migrated to Madinah. A few days later, her husband also followed her to Madinah and accepted Islam.
She is also the wife of Rasûlullâh sallallâhu ‘alayhi wa sallam. A great scholar of Hadîth relates that her nikâh with Rasûlullâh sallallâhu ‘alayhi wa sallam took place in the following manner: She came to him and said: “I am gifting my life to you.” In other words, I am prepared to enter into a marriage with you without even any mahr. He accepted this. Marrying in this manner (i.e. without any mahr) was permissible only for Rasûlullâh sallallâhu ‘alayhi wa sallam. A great mufassir relates that the verse which mentions a marriage of this nature was first revealed for this woman. Her first husband’s name was Huwaytib.
She is also the wife of Rasûlullâh sallallâhu ‘alayhi wa sallam. A woman relates an incident and says: “Once I was in the company of Umme Salamah. After a little while, many poor persons came to her. There were men and women among them. They all stood there (demanding something). So I said to them: ‘Go away from here.’ Upon this, Umme Salamah said: ‘We have not been commanded this. O girl! Give each of them something even if it means giving them one dry date.'” Her first husband was Abû Salamah radiyallâhu ‘anhu.
1. It is sunnah to grow one’s hair on the entire head till the ear lobes or slightly below them. If a person wishes to shave his head, it is sunnah to shave the entire head. It is also permissible to merely clip the hair. However, it is not permissible to clip all the hair and leave the front portion long, as is the fashion today. Similarly, it is also not permissible to shave a portion and leave another portion long. From this we deduce that it is not permissible to sport the babri hairstyle (or to cut the hair in the shape of a cap or to shape the front part of the hair).
21. As far as is possible, make him learn under a religious-minded teacher.

Hadrat Abu Hurairah (Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anhu) narrated that the Messenger of ALLAH said, “Two expressions which are light on the tongue but heavy in the scale are dear to the Compassionate One:
“Glory be to ALLAH and I begin with praise of Him,”
Q. “Is it obligatory to shave all the hair of the head after performing Hajj or Umrah, or a part of the hair can be cut? Please guide us with the detailed information according to Fiqh-e-Hanafi.”
(Muhammad Ashraf, Karachi)
A. It is not obligatory to shave one’s head or to cut all his hair at the conclusion of Ihram in Umrah or Hajj. One can also cut his hair instead of shaving it. The minimum requirement for coming out of ihram, according to fiqh-e-Hanafi, is to cut one’s hair at least to the measure of a fingertip from all sides of one’s hair. If one has cut his hair to this extent, he can come out of Ihram. However, if one’s hair are too short, and he cannot cut them to the measure of a fingertip, he will have to shave his head without which he cannot come out of Ihram.
Hadrat ‘Abdullah bin Mas’ud (Radi Allaahu Ta’ala Anhu) narrated that he never saw the Messenger of ALLAH (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) observe a Salaah out of its proper time with the exception of two, the sunset (Maghrib Salaah) and the night Salaah (Isha Salaah), which he combined, and the dawn Salaah (Fajar Salaah) which he observed that day (i.e. at Muzdalifa) before its proper time. [Bukhari, Muslim]
Hadrat ‘Abdullah – bin ‘Umar (Radi Allaahu Ta’ala Anhu) narrated to have said that the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) combined the sunset (Maghrib Salaah) and the night (Isha Salaah) Salaah. [Bukhari]
