Hadith Question

Q: Please answer and give me the references with the normal page number:

  1. There is a hadith something to this effect: “I am the first to which the Earth will burst open (on the Day of Judgment), then Abu Bakr, then Umar. I will then come to those who are buried in al Baqi and they gather with me. After that I’ll wait for the people of Mecca to be gathered by the inhabitants of the two sacred cities. “(Tirmidhi)
  2. The Messenger of Allah () said: « One who dies free from three things, i.e. arrogance, cheating and debt will enter paradise ». (Tirmidhi)
  3. There was a young man in the mosque of the Messenger of Allah (saw) which had some hair on his chin. Whenever the Messenger of Allah (saw) saw him, he laughed. The young man who did not understand why he was laughing, assumed it was in connection with some hair on his chin, he shaved those hairs. When the Messenger of Allah (saw) crossed and saw, he did not look any more. One day, the young man who was sad that the Messenger of Allah (saw) do not look any more, he went to find him and asked him: ‘ O Messenger, before I had some hair on my chin and when you saw me you laughed, now that I’ve shaved, you do not look at me anymore, why? The Messenger of Allah () replied: ‘ before I laughed because I saw angels fighting to swing at the end of your hair, now that you have shaved them, they left]. Something to this effect.
