Q: 1. The Imaam gave a bayaan on how to increase the love in the home… He said that Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) used to drink from one side of the cup and Hazrat Ayesha (radhiyallahu anha) drank from the same side… I corrected him privately by saying to him the hadith records it the other way around… Hazrat Ayesha (radhiyallahu anha) sipped first and Nabi (sallallahu alahih wasallam) drank from the side where she had sipped from… He argues that sometimes Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) drank first and ate first. Is the argument valid where I say the hadith as it should not be miss quoted or am I being technical?
2. The Imaam also gave additional advice saying that by making salaam when coming in the home would make you clear of debts. Is this amal heard of?
1. There is a possibility of both. One is certain and there is the possibility of the other.
2. We have not come across this, but it is obviously a source of barkat entering the home.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
