Hadith #1

حدثنا أبو الحسن أحمد بن محمد بن الصقر الصائغ، قال: حدثنا موسى بن إسحاق القاضي، قال: حدثنا أبو بكر بن أبي شيبة، قال: حدثنا جرير بن عبد الحميد عن عبد العزيز بن رفيع، عن أبي ظبيان، عن ابن عباس أنه قال: دار السلام الجنة، و أهلها لهم السلامة من جميع الآفات والعاهات والأمراض والأسقام، ولهم السلامة من الهرم والموت وتغير الأحوال عليهم، وهم المكرمون الذين لا يهانون أبدا، وهم الأعزاء الذين لا يذلون أبدا، وهم الأغنياء الذين لا يفتقرون أبدا، وهم السعداء الذين لا يشقون أبدا، وهم الفرحون المستبشرون الذين لا يغتمون ولا يهتمون أبدا، وهم الاحياء الذين لا يموتون أبدا، فهم في قصور الدر والمرجان أبوابها مشرعة إلى عرش الرحمن، " والملائكة يدخلون عليهم من كل باب سلام عليكم بما صبرتم فنعم عقبى الدار ".

1. We were told by Abu’l-Hasan, Ahmad bin Muhammed bin Saqr, the Goldsmith, that he said: We were told by Musa bin Ishaq al-Qadhi, that he said: We were told by Abu Bakr bin Abi Shayba, that he said: We were told by Jarir bin Abdil-Hamid, from Abdul-Aziz bin Rafee’, from Abu Dhibyan, from Ibn Abbas, that he said: The Home of Peace is Paradise, and its people have safety from all plagues, blemishes, illnesses and sicknesses, and they have safety from aging, death and the changing of circumstances upon them. They are the dignified who will never be insulted, and they are the honored who will never be humiliated, and they are the rich who will never become poor, and they are rejoicing who will never become miserable, and they are the happy, the cheering, who will never be distressed or concerned, and they are the living who will never die. Hence, they are in palaces of gems and corals whose doors give path to the Throne of the Merciful to all. «The Angels will enter upon them from every door (saying): Peace be upon you for what you were patient. Thus, excellent is the final home (of yours).» (13:23-24)

2. We were told by Ali bin Abdullah al-Warraq, that he said: We were told by Sa’d bin Abdullah, that he said: We were told by Abbas bin Sa’eed al-Azraq – and he was from the ‘Aamma [1] – that he said: We were told by Abdul-Rahman bin Saleh, that he said: We were told by Shareek bin Abdullah, from ‘Alaa’ bin Abdil-Karim, that he said: I heard Abu Ja’far, peace be upon him, say with regards to the saying of Allah, Exalted and Glorious is He: «And Allah calls for the Home of Peace» (10:25) to which he said: Indeed, the Peace is Allah, Exalted and Glorious is He, and His Home that He created for His allies is Paradise.
