Lesson 7 - Hadeeth 4 Of Nawawi 40 - Stages Of Man - Quiz

As usual, you may need the Explanation of Nawawi's 40 Hadeeths by Shyakh Al-Uthaymeen to answer the questions. If you are not memorising the hadeeths, then you might wish to skip the first two questions.

  • 2. 

    If a baby dies before reaching 40+40+40 days (4 months), then Islamically:

    • A.

      It is not given the rulings of a living person

    • B.

      It must be washed ceremonially

    • C.

      It must be buried

    • D.

      It must be prayed over

    Correct Answer
    A. It is not given the rulings of a living person
    Explanation
    At this early stage, the baby has not had a soul breathed into it so it is not given the rulings given to a living person.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Which of these statements can be understood from the hadeeth? (2 correct)

    • A.

      There is an angel assigned to the womb.

    • B.

      Angels cause life and do need Allaah to specifically command this.

    • C.

      The soul of each of us has been breathed into us by an angel sent by Allaah.

    • D.

      The soul is breathed into a baby at the time of its birth.

    • E.

      It is an evil statement to say that an angel breathed life into a human. It is Allaah who breathes the soul into each one of us.

    • F.

      The souls of the righteous are breathed into them by angels but the souls of the sinful people are blown into them by devils (shayaateen).

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. There is an angel assigned to the womb.
    C. The soul of each of us has been breathed into us by an angel sent by Allaah.
    Explanation
    The correct answer can be understood from the hadeeth because it states that there is an angel assigned to the womb, which implies that there is an angel involved in the process of human creation. Additionally, the hadeeth mentions that the soul of each person is breathed into them by an angel sent by Allaah, further supporting the idea that angels play a role in the creation of human beings.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Which of these are written about a person while they are still only a baby in their mother's womb? (One or more may be correct.)

    • A.

      Its provision

    • B.

      Its lifespan

    • C.

      Its actions

    • D.

      Whether it will be a wretched person or a person of complete happiness

    • E.

      Nothing is written down at this stage

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Its provision
    B. Its lifespan
    C. Its actions
    D. Whether it will be a wretched person or a person of complete happiness
    Explanation
    The answer choices provided suggest that the question is related to beliefs or concepts about predestination or fate. According to the answer, it is believed that certain aspects of a person's life, such as their provision (referring to their sustenance or resources), their lifespan, their actions, and even their future happiness or wretchedness, are predetermined or written before they are born. This aligns with the concept of predestination or predetermined fate in some religious or philosophical beliefs. The last answer choice states that nothing is written down at this stage, implying that there may be a belief that certain things are not predetermined or known until after birth.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Only one of these statements is true. Which is it?

    • A.

      The lifespan has been written down so if we were to take medicines when we became ill, this would show that we did not believe in predecree.

    • B.

      Our actions have been written down - when we do actions then we do so because we were forced to do so. We have no free will.

    • C.

      When we do good deeds, we should be confident that we will enter Paradise.

    • D.

      We should have fear and dread that we may not enter the Hellfire. This should make us do more good deeds.

    Correct Answer
    D. We should have fear and dread that we may not enter the Hellfire. This should make us do more good deeds.
    Explanation
    The answer suggests that we should have fear and dread that we may not enter the Hellfire, as this will motivate us to do more good deeds. This implies that our actions are not predetermined and that we have free will to choose our actions. By having fear and dread, we are acknowledging the possibility of not entering Hellfire and striving to do good deeds to increase our chances of entering Paradise.

    Interesting fact! This hadeeth and the last one are both found in the hadeeth collections of Al-Bukhari and Muslim. The narrator of both this hadeeth and the last one have something in common too. They

    • A.

      Were both called Abu Abdirrahmaan Abdullaah

    • B.

      Were both sons of Umar (may Allaah be pleased with him)

    • C.

      Narrated about a hundred hadeeth each

    • D.

      Were both brothers-in-law of the Messenger (sall Allaahu alaihi wa sallam)

    Correct Answer
    A. Were both called Abu Abdirrahmaan Abdullaah
    Explanation
    The explanation for the given correct answer is that both the narrator of this hadeeth and the last one were called Abu Abdirrahmaan Abdullaah. This common name suggests that they may have had a close relationship or similar background, which could explain why they both narrated a significant number of hadeeths and were brothers-in-law of the Messenger. Additionally, the fact that this information is found in the hadeeth collections of Al-Bukhari and Muslim further validates its authenticity and importance.
