Upon the authority of Abu Hurairah (radhiyallaahu anhu) who said the Messenger of Allah – (sallallaahu ‘alayhe wa sallam) said: “Indeed the people of Jannah will not have bodily hair or beards, and they will have (Natural) Kuhl (I.e. Eyeliner) on their eyes. Their youth will never end and their garments will never wear out“
[Collected by At Tirmidhi (2539) and declared ‘Saheeh’ By Shaykh Albaani in Saheeh At Targheeb]
Upon the authority of Abu Sa’eed Al Khudri (Radhiyallaahu ‘Anhu) who said that the Messenger of Allah – (sallallaahu ‘alayhe wa sallam) said: “If the believer desires a child in Jannah, then pregnancy, child birth and the child coming of age occurs in an hour (or in a short period) and the child is just as they desire!

Upon the authority of hakeem Ibn Mu’aawiyah Al Qushairi from his father who said i heard the Messenger of Allah – (sallallaahu ‘alayhe wa sallam) say:”In Jannah there is an Ocean of Water, an Ocean of Milk, An Ocean of Honey and an Ocean of Wine, then the rivers (of Jannah) emanate from them.”

Saalih bin Ahmed bin Hanbal said: “A person, who used to treat flogs etc, saw my father (Ahmed bin Hanbal) and said: ‘I have also seen such a person who received 1000 flogs but I never saw such a beating (that Imaam Ahmed received)’. There were the signs of beating over his back and on the chest. Then he took the stitch and inserted it into some of the wounds and said that this stitch could not reach to the end of the wound. He used to come and treat him.
He (Imaam Ahmed) had also received some flogs on his face. He remained lying prone (on the surface) for as long as Allaah wished. Then he said: ‘This is one thing (i.e. the torn skin of the wound) that I want to cut’. That Doctor used to hold the skin with a tong and cut it with a knife. He (Imaam Ahmed) remained patient and thankful in this condition, and he would keep praising Allaah. Then Allaah cured him but the pain of wounds remained with him at several places. His back remained affected due to flogs until his death. May Allaah have mercy upon him! He used to say: ‘By Allaah, I have tried my best, all I want is that I be saved from the punishment (of Allaah) and if my matter balances out then it would be more than enough.’”
[Manaaqib Ahmed: P. 346, 347, Chain Saheeh]
Abu Huraira reported: We were sitting with the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, when a young man approached us. When we saw him, we said, “If only this young man had given his youth and effort and strength in the path of Allah!” The Messenger of Allah heard us and he said, “Is there nothing in the path of Allah but fighting? Whoever strives for his parents is in the path of Allah. Whoever strives for his family is in the path of Allah. Whoever strives for himself to be independent is in the path of Allah. Whoever strives to gain many possessions for himself is in the path of Satan.”

Question: What is meant by the salafi madhab?
Answer: What is meant by the salafi madhab is the way of the salaf (early generations) of this ummah, namely the Sahaba, Taabieen and prominent imams with regard to issues of ‘aqeedah, sound method, sincere faith and adherence to the beliefs, laws, etiquette and conduct of Islam, unlike the innovators, deviants and those who are confused…
There is nothing wrong with calling them Ahl al-Sunnah wal Jamaah, so as to differentiate between them and the followers of deviant groups. This is not praising oneself, rather it is distinguishing between the people of truth and the people of falsehood.

From AbdurRahmaan bin Jubair bin Nafeer, from his father who said: we were sitting with al-Miqdad bin al-Aswad one day, when a person passed by him and said: ‘Toobah (a tree in Paradise) for these two eyes which saw the Messenger of Allaah -sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam-: ‘I swear by Allaah that we wish we had seen what you have seen and witnessed what you witnessed.’ Al-Miqdad became angry, I became astonished, because they did not say anything but good. Then he turned to the man and said: ‘What makes a person wish that he was present when Allaah has made him absent. He does not know, if he had witnessed it, how he would have been at that time? I swear by Allaah there were a people that were present at the time of the Messenger of Allaah -sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam, who Allaah will throw on their nostrils in the HellFire, because they did not respond to the Messenger -sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam- nor did they believe in him. Do you not praise Allaah, for taking you out from your mothers’ wombs not knowing anything except your Lord and believing in that which your Prophet was sent with. Indeed you have been saved from trials by others being trialed instead of you.
I swear by Allaah, that Allaah sent the Prophet -sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam- in the severest time that any Prophet from among the Prophets was ever sent, in any period of time including the Jahileeyah time period (period of ignorance before Islaam).
They would not regard any religion better than the worship of idols, then the Prophet -sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam- came with the Furqan (the Criterion) he separated the truth from falsehood with this Criterion, and he separated a father from his son, so much so that a man would see his father and his son or his brother as a disbeliever.
And indeed Allaah opened the lock of his heart with Eemaan, and he knows if he is destroyed he enters the fire, it does not make him happy that his beloved is in the fire.
And it is about those that Allaah –Azza wa Jal – said: <>’
