Are these hadiths authentic.
Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,
As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
How far is the following hadees authentic?
1.Once a Yonge man had been to Rasool Allah Sallallaho Alaihi Wasallam .
He said : "Iam A great sinner and also have lot of jealously in me".
Rasool Allah Sallallaho Alaihi Wasallam asked: "Are your sins more than the number of stars?'".
He Replied "Yes".
Rasool Allah Sallallaho Alaihi Wasallam was then asked :"Are your sins greater that grains of sand in the desert"?
He Replied "Yes".
Rasool Allah Sallallaho Alaihi Wasallam was then asked: "Are your sins more that the raindrops?
"Yes",was replied from the younge man.
"Are Your Sins more than the number of leaves on the trees?" once again the reply was "yes".
"Are your sins greater than the Mercy of Allah Taala?"
The YOung man Stayed Quiet for a long time and then began to cry.
Rasool Allah Sallallaho Alaihi Wasallam said "Lailaha illallah "do not despair;recite Lailaha illallah and all your sins will be forgiven,no matter how many sins you have.
"then Rasool Allah Sallallaho Alaihi Wasallam stated "if any one recites Lailaha illallah night and day, in such a ma nner that he stretches the "Laa"(with a madh), then Allah Ta'ala forgives sins equivalent to 4000 years.
When one recites this,the Throne (Arsh)of Allah Ta'ala Starts to move.
Allah Ta'ala orders "O Throne,be still".
The Throne says "oh Allah,forgive the reciter of the kalima so that i can be at peace.
"Allah Ta'ala then says,"I have forgiven him"..
2.Whenever someone receites "Lailaha illallah" that pillar starts to shake.
Allah Ta'ala says "stop' to the pillar.
The Pillar says "How can i stop " ,The person that recited Kalima has not been forgiven yet .
Allah ta'ala then says " I have forgiven that person".Then the pillar stops shaking

Are these hadiths authentic
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Respected brother in Islam, to the best of our knowledge, we have not come across any narrations with the above quoted sequence of events in the authentic and established Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah (saws).
Respected brother, we remind you as we remind ourselves, that one should fear Allah and be extremely careful when quoting or attributing something to the Messenger of Allah (saws); for the chastisement of intentionally attributing a falsehood to Prophet Mohamed (saws) is very severe indeed.
Al-Tirmidhi Hadith 232 Narrated by Abdullah ibn Abbas
Allah's Messenger (saws) said: Be mindful when transmitting a Hadith from me. (Transmit) only that which you know (to be the Truth); for he who intentionally attributes a falsehood to me will find his abode in Hell-Fire.
Having said that there is no such narration as quoted by you in the authentic and established Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah (saws), it is indeed true that regardless of the quantity or quality of sins one might have committed in ones past.if one turns to their Lord Most Gracious in taubah, seeks sincere repentance for those sins before one has met with their appointment of death, and subsequently amends ones conduct..it is expected that they will find their Lord Forgiving and Merciful.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 39 Surah Zumur verses 53-54:
(O Prophet) say: O My servants who have wronged their own souls.Do not despair of Allahs Mercy! Surely, Allah forgives all sins. He indeed is the All Forgiving, All Merciful. Return to your Lord and submit to Him before the scourge overtakes you; for then you may get no help from anywhere.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 3 Surah Ale Imraan verse 135-136:
Allah likes such good people very much, who, if ever they commit a base deed or wrong their own soul by the commission of a sin, remember Allah instantly, and ask for forgiveness from Him for their shortcomings. For who, but Allah, can forgive sins? (And Allah loves those) who do not knowingly persist in the wrongs they did. These will be rewarded with forgiveness from Allah, and with Gardens beneath which canals flow, and they will reside therein forever! How excellent is the reward of those who do good deeds!
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 25 Surah Furqaan verses 63-71:
The (true) servants of the Merciful are those who walk humbly on the earth. When the ignorant people behave insolently towards them, they say, Peace to you; (And those) who pass their nights in prostrating themselves and standing before their Lord and pray, O our Lord, save us from the torment of Hell, for its torment is killing! It is an evil abode, and an evil resting place. (And those) who, when they spend are neither extravagant, nor miserly, but keep the golden mean between the two extremes. (And those) who do not invoke any god but Allah Alone, nor kill a soul unjustly, which Allah has forbidden, nor commit adultery He who does this shall be punished for his sin, and his torment shall be doubled on the Day of Resurrection, and he shall abide in a state of ignominy; EXCEPT THE ONE WHO MAY HAVE REPENTED (AFTER THOSE SINS), AND HAVE BELIEVED AND DONE RIGHTEOUS DEEDS. For then, Allah will change his evil deeds into good deeds, and He is very Forgiving and Merciful. In fact, one who repents and does righteous deeds, returns to Allah as one rightly should!
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 6 Surah Anaam verse 54:
When those come to you who believe in Our Signs, say: "Peace be on you! Your Lord had inscribed for Himself (the rule of) Mercy. Verily if any of you did evil in ignorance, and thereafter repented and amended (his conduct), Lo! He is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful."
Al-Tirmidhi Hadith 2357 Narrated by Abdullah ibn Mas'ud
Allah's Messenger (saws) said, "He who repents of a sin is like him who has committed no sin."
Al-Tirmidhi Hadith 2338 Narrated by Abdullah ibn Umar
Allah's Messenger (saws) said, "Allah accepts a servant's repentance (taubah) till he gives up his spirit in death."
Al-Tirmidhi Hadith 2339 Narrated by Abu Sa'id
Allah's Messenger (saws) said that the Shaytaan said, "By Thy Might, my Lord, I shall continue to lead Thy servants astray as long as their spirits are in their bodies!" The Lord, Who is Great and Glorious, replied, "By My Might, Glory and Exalted Station, I shall continue to pardon them as long as they ask My forgiveness!"
Sahih Muslim Hadith 6499 Narrated by Abu Dharr Ghaffari
Allah's Messenger (saws) said that Allah, the Exalted and Glorious, stated: He who comes with goodness, there are in store for him ten like those and even more than those; and he who comes with vice, it is only for that that which he is called to account. I even forgive him as I like, and he who draws close to Me by the span of a palm, I draw close to him by the cubit; and he who draws close to Me by the cubit, I draw close to him by the space (covered) by two hands; and he who walks towards Me, I rush towards him; and he who meets Me in the state that his sins fill the earth, but not associating anything with Me, I would meet Him with the same (vastness) of pardon (on My behalf)."
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
