Da'eef (weak) hadeeths

Authenticity of Hadith That Says Righteous Humans Are Superior to the AngelsIn a mursal report that is narrated from the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him), and in the report narrated from ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Amr about the superiority of the angels, it says that the angels said: O Lord, You have created the world for the sons of Adam, in which they will eat, drink, wear clothes and get married, so make the Hereafter for us, as you made the world for them. He said: I shall not do that. They repeated their request, and He said: I shall not do that. Then they repeated it again, and He said: By My Glory, I shall not make the righteous among those whom I created with My own Hand like the one to whom I said, Be! and he was. Is this report sahih (authentic)?

A hadith in which it is forbidden to think about the Creator, and it is enjoined to think about creationI hope you can clarify whether the following hadith is saheeh (sound) or not. Abu’t-Tayyib Ahmad ibn Rawh told us: ‘Ali ibn ‘Amr told us, from Ibraaheem ibn Moosaa al-Bahraani, from Muqaatil, from ‘Ikrimah, from Ibn ‘Abbaas (may Allah be pleased with him) who said: The Messenger of Allah (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) came to us when we were sitting in circles in the mosque, and the Messenger of Allah (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said: “What are you doing?” We said: We are thinking about the sun and how it rises and sets. He said: “You are doing well. Be like this, and think about what is created; do not think about the Creator, for Allah, may He be glorified and exalted, creates whatever He wants to create when He wants to create it, and are you surprised by that? Beyond (the mountain of) Qaaf there are seven seas, each of which is five hundred years wide; beyond that there are seven earths, the light of which shines for their people; beyond that there are seventy thousand nations in constant flight, who were created in the form of birds, and they and their chicks are in the air, never faltering or omitting a single tasbeeh; beyond that there are seventy thousand nations created from wind – they feed on wind, they drink wind, their clothes are wind, their vessels are wind, their mounts are wind, and the hooves of their mounts will never touch the ground until the Hour begins…”
The number of books that Allah, may He be exalted, sent downI have received a number of messages on WhatsApp authenticated with a video by a shaykh whose name I do not know, and the sender does not mention his name. They say that the number of divinely revealed books was one hundred and four; Allah sent fifty pages to Sheeth (Seth); Allah sent thirty pages to Idrees; Allah sent ten pages to Ibraaheem; Allah sent ten pages to Moosaa before the Torah; and Allah sent down the Torah (Tawraat), the Gospel (Injeel), the Psalms (Zaboor) and the Furqaan (Qur’an). He quoted as evidence the hadith of Abu Dharr al-Ghifaari; is the hadith of Abu Dharr da‘eef (weak) or is it a saheeh (sound) hadith?
Is the report which encourages reciting Soorat al-Ikhlaas on 'Ashura saheeh?It was narrated that ‘Ali (may Allah be pleased with him) said: “Whoever recites Soorat al-Ikhlaas one thousand times on the day of 'Ashura, the Most Gracious will look at him, and whoever the Most Gracious looks at, He will never punish him.” Is this a saheeh hadith? Are there any adhkaar to be recited on the day of 'Ashura that are of special virtue?
A baseless hadith about thinking to oneself in prayerI received the following question from one of the brothers: There is a hadith that I heard narrated, but I did not memorize it, although the meaning is something along the lines of: on one occasion the Messenger (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) was saying to his companions that whoever among them could pray without thinking of something, he would give him his abayah. Sayyiduna ‘Ali (may Allah honour his face) went forward and prayed, and when he finished, the Prophet asked him: “Didn’t you think of something other than the prayer?” He said: Yes indeed, O Messenger of Allah; I wondered which abayah you would give me, the old one or the new one. Is this report sound? Is there a saheeh hadith about that? What is its source? And in what book was it narrated?
Are our deeds shown to the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him)?Are our deeds shown to the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him)? Is there a saheeh hadith to that effect?
It is essential to verify stories before narrating them and spreading themIn high school, some of the teachers tell us stories about the angels and about Sayyiduna Jibreel (peace be upon him), and they said that Allah, may He be glorified and exalted, commanded Jibreel to take the soul of a woman (in death), so he went to her and found her breastfeeding her infant, so he could not take her soul. He came back three times, and on the last occasion he took her soul. And there are other stories. Are these stories based on reality, or is there no sound basis for them?
Du‘aa’ concerning which it is said that there was a covenant between the jinn and Sulaymaan (pace be upon him) that whoever said this du‘aa’, the jinn would never harm himA maulvi who performs Ruqyah shariah for people possessed with jinns had told my cousin (who was possessed by jinn) that there is a Dua from the time of prophet Sulaiman . The jinns during his time had promised that whoever reads the dua once will never be harmed by them. Prophet Muhammad SAWS has permitted us to read it but has not revealed the meaning of the words of that dua. I would like to know if this it true. If yes then please let me know the dua.
A hadith about the virtue of marriage that has no basis in the books of Ahl as-SunnahHow sound is this hadith that urges people to get married, and is attributed to our noble Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him and his family and companions)? In fact I did not find it in the reliable books of Ahl as-Sunnah wa’l-Jama ‘ah about the hadiths of the Messenger of Allah (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him). It was narrated from the Messenger of Allah (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him): “There is nothing that is built in Islam that is dearer to Allah, may He be glorified and exalted, than marriage.”
Is the hadith which says that whoever is content with little provision will enter al-Firdaws saheeh?Could you please tell me if this hadith is saheeh: “A person will be rewarded with a place in Jannat al-Firdaws if he is content with the least provision”?
The addition of the word “kareem” in the du‘aa’ of Laylat al-Qadr is not provenIt is quoted in Saheeh at-Tirmidhi by Shaykh al-Albaani (may Allah have mercy on him): 3513: Qutaybah told us: Ja‘far ibn Sulaymaan ad-Dab‘i told us, from Kahmas ibn al-Hasan, from ‘Abdullah ibn Buraydah, from ‘Aa’ishah, who said: I said: O Messenger of Allah, if I realise when it is Laylat al-Qadr, what do you think I should say? He said: “Say: Allahumma innaka ‘Awfuwwun Kareem, tubhibb al-‘afwa, fa‘fu ‘anni (O Allah, You are forgiving and most generous, You love forgiveness, so forgive me).” The shaykh (may Allah have mercy on him) deemed it to be saheeh. But the same hadith was narrated by Ibn Maajah (3850) and in as-Silsilah as-Saheehah, Shaykh al-Albaani stated that the additional word “Kareem (most generous)” was added by one of the scribes. Did the shaykh fail to notice the additional word “kareem” in Saheeh at-Tirmidhi, or is it saheeh in his opinion? If it is not proven in his opinion, then why did he not point out in Saheeh at-Tirmidhi that it is something that has been added?

Soundness of the hadith which says that Allah, may He be glorified and exalted, descends on the night of the fifteenth of Sha‘baan to the lowest heavenA`isha, the Mother of Believers (may Allah be pleased with her), said: “One night, I did not find the Prophet in his bed, so I went out searching for him and found him at al-Baqi’ cemetery with his head raised towards the sky. He said: ‘O ‘A`isha! Were you afraid that Allah and His messenger would treat you unfairly?’ I said, ‘No, I thought you had gone to spend the night with one of your [other] wives’ He said: ‘Allah Almighty descends to the lowest heaven on the night of mid-Sha’ban and forgives more people than the number of hairs on the hides of the sheep of Bani Kalb1.

Is it proven in the hadith that whoever kisses the Black Stone will be admitted to Paradise without being brought to account?I want to ask about the soundness of a hadith that I heard. The text of the hadith is, “Whoever kisses the Black Stone will be admitted to Paradise without being brought to account.” I do not know its chain of narrators (isnaad). If this hadith is not sound (saheeh), is there any text which indicates that whoever kisses the Black Stone will be admitted to Paradise without being brought to account, or is this not true?
An innovated way of reciting the first verses of the soorahs that begin with Haa’-MeemI have a question regarding the surahs that start with Ha-Mim... I have seen some Sufi people recite the first two ayat of each of these surahs and then move on to next Ha-Mim and then recite the first two ayat again and then moves on to next Ha-Mim and then first two ayat again etc. They say its some kind of protection from hellfire and they recite it every morning before fajr. Is there any proof? I don't find any evidences for this.

This was recorded only by Ahmad.
