Verily, Allah and His angels shower blessings on the Prophet. O Believers! send blessings upon him and salute him with a worthy salutation". (Qur'aan - 33:56)

Salam alaikoum ,
thanks for sharing brother...
The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: "If, through fear of (displeasing) God, tears - even the size a fly's head - fall from any believer's eyes. . .he will be kept away from Hell."
Al-Tirmidhi, Hadith 1433
would any one clarify as to whether these pictures are authentic?
It is reported from Abu Umamah from the Prophet (Sallallahu 'Alayhi WaSallam) that he said:
اتَّقُوا فِرَاسَةَ الْمُؤْمِنِ ، فَإِنَّهُ يَنْظُرُ بِنُورِ اللَّهِ
" Fear the Insight of the Believer, for verily he sees with the Light of God"

THE DISPUTE REGARDING THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE IN THE CAVE AND THE SOLUTION
The above verse cites three opinions with regard to the number of people who were in the cave. The first says that “They were three, their dog being the fourth.” The second states that “They were five, their dog being the sixth.” The third says that “They were seven and their dog was the eighth.”
“Ruhul Ma’aani” (Vol.15 Pg.480) says that these three opinions arose during the time of Rasulullaah (sallallaahu-alayhi-wa-sallam). The first was held by the Jews, the second by the Christians of Najraan who came to Madinah. With them was the leader of the Nastooriya sect of Christians by the name of Aaqib. The third opinion was that of some Muslims.
After mentioning the first two opinions, Allaah says, “They are merely guessing.” After mentioning the third opinion Allaah says, “Say, ‘My Rabb knows best what their number was and only a few people know them.” Commentators deduce from this that the third opinion is the correct one.
Hadhrat Abdullaah bin Abbaas (R.A) has mentioned that he is of those few who know the correct number. He then said that they were seven and their dog was the eighth. This is the view of Muslims in general. Hadhrat Abdullaah bin Abbaas (R.A) has enumerated their names as Makaslimina, Yamleekha, Martoos, Thayunus, Dardanoos, Kafashaytitoos and Mantanwasees, and their dog was named Qitmeer.
Hadhrat Abdullaah bin Abbaas (R.A) has most probably heard the names from someone of the Ahlul Kitaab. The correct pronunciation of these names is not known.
“So do not delve into debate regarding them, except for superficial discussion.” One should narrate only what the Qur'aan says and not delve further into the subject. Allaah also instructs, “And do not even ask anyone about them.” Whoever will be asked will report only such things that have no concrete basis.
-Anwar ul Bayan Juz 15 Pg 132
Where is this cave? Jordan or Syria ? :s
i visited this site with my family in july. its in jordan and the pictures are authentic although its the first time i have seen the ones with the skeletal bones as that is not visible in the actual cave. i visited this same place 8 years ago and at the time they had the bones of the dog but this time we were told they had been stolen.
