  1. Ok, one question. If bleeding starts for instance at 6:00 pm then we will count days from that time, right? From 6 pm to 6 pm one day? And then in the days column we will write exact amount of time for example 5 days and 4 hours?
  2. Encouraging Youth to Reform Question: Assalaamu ‘alaikum Respected ‘Ulama I teach in a madrasah and so I meet and interact with many young girls from different backgrounds. I have noticed that although they may be involved in bad habits and ways, they are still quite receptive. I have hope that if I speak to them and give them encouragement, they will be inspired to change their ways for the better. How should I address them? How can I give them hope in the mercy of Allah Ta'ala and encourage them to make taubah? Jazakallah Answer: Bismihi Ta‘ala Wa ‘alaikumus salaam wa rahmatullahi wa barkaatuh Respected Sister in Islam May Allah Ta‘ala accept your efforts and sacrifices to educate the youth and to bring them closer to Deen. With regard to the topic of taubah, you should put forward to them the aayaat of the Quraan Majeed and the ahaadeeth which highlight the great mercy of Allah Ta‘ala and His happiness to forgive His servants. One such aayat is: قُلْ يَا عِبَادِيَ الَّذِينَ أَسْرَفُوا عَلَىٰ أَنفُسِهِمْ لَا تَقْنَطُوا مِن رَّحْمَةِ اللَّـهِ ۚ إِنَّ اللَّـهَ يَغْفِرُ الذُّنُوبَ جَمِيعًا ۚ إِنَّهُ هُوَ الْغَفُورُ الرَّحِيمُ O my servants who have transgressed against their souls! Do not despair of the mercy of Allah, for Allah forgives all sins. He is Most Forgiving, Most Merciful. (Surah Zumar v. 53) Similarly, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) mentioned, “The person who sincerely repents from a sin (and reforms his life) is like a person who has not committed the sin.” (Ibnu Maajah #4250) In other words, if a person has genuine remorse in his heart, sincerely repents and resolves to never return to sins again, then in a mere moment, a lifetime of sins will be erased. You should also mention some of the incidents of those who made sincere taubah and how their lives were transformed for the better. Among the personalities in the Ummah whose examples you may present are people such as ‘Abdullah bin Mubaarak (rahimahullah), Maalik bin Dinaar (rahimahullah) and Bishr Haafi (rahimahullah), etc. The booklet Rujoo’ilallah of Moulana Yunus Patel (rahimahullah) will also be of great help to you. Insha-Allah you will benefit from it and will be able to help others as well. May Allah Ta‘ala assist you in this extremely noble and important task.

  4. Abdullah ibn ‘Umar رضي الله عنهTruly, we were the beginning of this nation. There would be men, amongst the best of the companions of the Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وسلم, who only had with them one surah or so from the Qur’an, but the Qur’an was heavy upon them and they were given the sustenance of acting according to it. Truly, the end of this nation will have the Qur’an upon them until even the child and the non-Arab recites it, but they will not act according to it.(The Character of the Bearers and People of the Qur’an, page#40) Taken from Here

  9. Being More Concerned of One’s Reformation than the Reformation of Others Hazrat Moulana Ashraf Ali Thanwi (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) once mentioned: There is a great need for each person to be concerned about his own reformation and to correct his actions. Nowadays, we find that people have fallen into the sickness of worrying about other people’s weaknesses while they are unconcerned about their own reformation. This can be compared to a person who is more concerned about looking after the shoes of others while his own shoes and luggage get stolen due to him being unconcerned about them. How foolish is the action of such a person! (Malfoozaat Hakeemul Ummat 23/56) Source: Ihyaauddeen.co.za
  10. سکینت والی آیات۔ ۔ ۔ جو غم، کمزوری اور بے قراری دور کرتی ہیں ابن القیم رحمہ اللہ فرماتے ہیں: جب کبھی شیخ الاسلام ابنِ تیمیہ رحمہ اللہ پر معاملات شدت اختیار کر لیتے (مشکلات آتیں) تو وہ آیاتِ سکینہ کی تلاوت فرماتے۔ ایک بار انہیں ایک حیرت انگیز اورناقابل فہم واقعہ انکی بیماری میں پیش آیا جب شیطانی ارواح کمزوری کی حالت میں ان پر غالب آئیں، میں نے انہیں کہتےسنا، وہ فرماتے ہیں، "جب یہ معاملہ زیادہ زور پکڑ گیا تو میں نے اپنے رشتے داروں اور ارد گرد کے لوگوں سے کہا، "آیاتِ سکینہ پڑھو"۔ کہتے ہیں، "پھر میری یہ کیفیت ختم ہو گئی، اور میں اٹھ کر بیٹھ گیا ( ٹھیک ہو گیا) اور مجھے کوئی بیماری باقی نہ رہی"۔ اسی طرح، میں نے بھی اضطراب قلب دور کرنے کے لئے ان آیات کی تلاوت کا تجربہ کیا۔ اور حقیقتاً اس میں سکون اور اطمینان کے حوالے سے بڑی تاثیر پائی۔ سکینت اصل میں وہ اطمینان، وقار اور سکون ہے جو اللہ اپنے بندے کے دل پر اس وقت اُتارتا ہے جب وہ شدتِ خوف کی وجہ سے لاحق اضطراب کے باوجود اس سے خفا نہیں ہوتا۔ اور اِس سے اُس کے ایمان، قوتِ یقین اور مثبت سوچ میں اضافہ ہوتا ہے۔ تہذیب مدارج السالکین از ابن القیّم رحِمهُ اللّٰه (باب: منزلة السکینة، ج: 2، ص: 502) آیات سکینۃ یہ ہیں: 1- ( وَقَالَ لَهُمْ نِبِيّهُمْ إِنّ آيَةَ مُلْكِهِ أَن يَأْتِيَكُمُ التّابُوتُ فِيهِ سَكِينَةٌ مّن رّبّكُمْ وَبَقِيّةٌ مّمّا تَرَكَ آلُ مُوسَىَ وَآلُ هَارُونَ تَحْمِلُهُ الْمَلآئِكَةُ إِنّ فِي ذَلِكَ لاَيَةً لّكُمْ إِن كُنْتُـم مّؤْمِنِينَ) [البقرة: 248] 1- اور ان کے نبی نے ان سے فرمایا کہ اس کی بادشاہت کی علامت یہ ہو گی کہ تمہارے پاس وہ تابوت (واپس) آجائے گا جس میں تمہارے رب کی طرف سے تسکین بھی ہے اور آل موسیٰ اور آلِ ہارون کے چھوڑے ہوئے بقیہ جات بھی ہیں جسے فرشتے اٹھائے ہوئے ہوں گے۔ یقینا اس میں تمہارے لیے ایک (بڑی) نشانی ہے اگر تم ایمان لانے والے ہو۔ [البقرہ : 248] 2- ( ثُمّ أَنَزلَ اللّهُ سَكِينَتَهُ عَلَىَ رَسُولِهِ وَعَلَى الْمُؤْمِنِينَ وَأَنزَلَ جُنُوداً لّمْ تَرَوْهَا وَعذّبَ الّذِينَ كَفَرُواْ وَذَلِكَ جَزَآءُ الْكَافِرِينَ) [التوبة:26] 2- پھر اللہ (سبحانہ و تعالیٰ) نے اپنے رسول اور مومنوں پر اپنی سکینت نازل کی اور ایسے لشکر بھیجے جنہیں تم نہیں دیکھ سکتے تھے، اور کافروں کو عذاب دیا، اور کافروں کا یہی بدلہ ہے [التوبہ : 26] 3- ( إِلاّ تَنصُرُوهُ فَقَدْ نَصَرَهُ اللّهُ إِذْ أَخْرَجَهُ الّذِينَ كَفَرُواْ ثَانِيَ اثْنَيْنِ إِذْ هُمَا فِي الْغَارِ إِذْ يَقُولُ لِصَاحِبِهِ لاَ تَحْزَنْ إِنّ اللّهَ مَعَنَا فَأَنزَلَ اللّهُ سَكِينَتَهُ عَلَيْهِ وَأَيّدَهُ بِجُنُودٍ لّمْ تَرَوْهَا وَجَعَلَ كَلِمَةَ الّذِينَ كَفَرُواْ السّفْلَىَ وَكَلِمَةُ اللّهِ هِيَ الْعُلْيَا وَاللّهُ عَزِيزٌ حَكِيمٌ) [التوبة:40] 3- اگر تم اسکی مدد نہیں کرو گے تو اللّٰہ (سبحانہ وتعالیٰ) اسکی مدد اسوقت بھی کر چکے ہیں جب انہیں کافروں نے نکال دیا تھا، جب وہ ان دو میں سے ایک تھا۔ جب وہ دونوں غار میں تھے، اسوقت وہ اپنے ساتھی سے کہہ رہا تھا "غم نہ کرو، بے شک اللہ ہمارے ساتھ ہے"، تو اللّٰہ نے اس پر اپنی سکینت اتار دی اور نظر نہ آنے والے لشکروں کے ذریعے اس کی مدد فرمائی اور کافروں کی بات کو پست کر دکھایا اور اللہ ہی کی بات بلند ہے اور اللّٰہ بہت زبردست، خوب حکمت والا ہے [التوبہ : 40] 4- ( هُوَ الّذِيَ أَنزَلَ السّكِينَةَ فِي قُلُوبِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ لِيَزْدَادُوَاْ إِيمَاناً مّعَ إِيمَانِهِمْ وَلِلّهِ جُنُودُ السّمَاوَاتِ وَالأرْضِ وَكَانَ اللّهُ عَلِيماً حَكِيماً ) [الفتح:4] 4- وہی ذات ہے جس نے مومنوں کے دلوں میں سکینت اتاری تاکہ وہ اپنے ایمان میں اضافہ کریں اور اللّٰہ ہی کے لیے زمین و آسمان کے لشکر ہیں اور اللّٰہ تعالیٰ بہت علم والا، خوب حکمت والا ہے [الفتح : 4] 5- ( لّقَدْ رَضِيَ اللّهُ عَنِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ إِذْ يُبَايِعُونَكَ تَحْتَ الشّجَرَةِ فَعَلِمَ مَا فِي قُلُوبِهِمْ فَأنزَلَ السّكِينَةَ عَلَيْهِمْ وَأَثَابَهُمْ فَتْحاً قَرِيباً ) [الفتح:18] 5- اللہ تعالیٰ ان مومنین سے اسی وقت راضی ہو چکا تھا جب وہ درخت کے نیچے بیعت کر رہے تھے، وہ ان کے دلوں کے حال سے واقف تھا، پھر اس نے ان پر سکینت اتاری اور قریبی فتح سے ہم کنار کیا [الفتح : 18] 6-( إِذْ جَعَلَ الّذِينَ كَفَرُواْ فِي قُلُوبِهِمُ الْحَمِيّةَ حَمِيّةَ الْجَاهِلِيّةِ فَأَنزَلَ اللّهُ سَكِينَتَهُ عَلَىَ رَسُولِهِ وَعَلَى الْمُؤْمِنِينَ وَأَلْزَمَهُمْ كَلِمَةَ التّقْوَىَ وَكَانُوَاْ أَحَقّ بِهَا وَأَهْلَهَا وَكَانَ اللّهُ بِكُلّ شَيْءٍ عَلِيماً ) [الفتح:26] 6- جب کافروں نے اپنے دلوں میں جاہلیت والی ضد پال لی تو اللّٰہ تعالیٰ نے اپنے رسول اور مومنوں پر اپنی سکینت اتاری اور انکو تقوی کی بات پر جما دیا جس کے وہ سب سے زیادہ حقدار اور اہل تھے، اور اللّٰہ ہر چیز کو خوب جاننے والا ہے [الفتح : 26]
  11. Sunlight – Avoid or Bask in? QUESTION Here is something that has confused me for some time. One hadith advising us to avoid direct sunlight and other advice not to avoid sunshine as it is our bath. Could you please elaborate on how one should look at these two hadith and act on the sunnah in the proper manner. Jazaakumullah Avoid direct sunlight Rasulullaah (SAW) advised people to avoid sitting in direct sunlight because it spoils the clothing, causes a person to smell with perspiration and also causes suppressed illness to surface [Mustadrak 8264, from Hadhrat Abdullaah bin Abbaas (RA)] Hadhrat Umar Ibn Khattaab (Radhiyallahu anhu), wrote a letter to all his governors in distant lands in which he ordered the Muslims with two essential acts: 1. Do not avoid sunshine. Sunshine is our bath. 2. Do not mount your horses like the Ajam (kuffaar). ANSWER The hadith discouraging sunlight applies to excessive exposure. Sitting and sleeping in sunlight for prolonged periods are harmful. Even western experts have warned of the deceases prolonged sun-tanning can cause. The type of exposing the body to sunlight as is the practice of western kuffaar on beaches where they lag in the sun for tanning purposes is harmful. On the other hand, hadhrat Umar Radhiallahu Anhu’s advice relates to everyday work and activity. His advice was for the Sahabah who had settled in fertile lands where the way of life was comfortable, unlike the difficult harsh conditions of Makkah and Madinah. He was cautioning the Sahabah of becoming accustomed to the easy and comfortable way of life of the Ajam. They were primarily on Jihaad campaigns which required a robust lifestyle. Addiction of the comforts of the Ajam lifestyle would impact negatively on their Jihaad campaigns in rough weather conditions. His advice was simply to maintain the rugged lifestyle of the desert which was their home. [Answered by Hazrat Maulana Ahmad Sadeq Desai] Taken from reliablefatwas.com
  12. Assalamu alaikum aapa, Final exams starting in three days, please keep me in duas.
  13. Perpetual Zikr (English with Urdu Translation) Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said: “Your tongue should remain ever fresh with Thikrullah.” The Name of Allah Ta’ala has to be compulsorily on the tongue of the Mu’min throughout the day. When retiring for the night, fall asleep with Allah’s Thikr. Then every breath will be recorded as a Tasbeeh, and an Angel will guard you throughout the night. Perpetual Thikr is not the customary, bid’ah forms of ‘halqah’ (circle) thikr sessions which some miscreant fake ‘sufis’ conduct in the public in Musaajid to lure and impress the public. Perpetual Thikr is to constantly keep the tongue moving with Thikr – any form – preferably Laa ilaha il lallaah. Ultimately, such thikr of the tongue will become embedded and entrenched in the heart. The heart will then become alert and remain wakeful in Allah’s remembrance. The heart will then be adorned with Noor. Be constant with Thikr whilst walking, sitting, working and in all walks of life. Such Thikrullah will create an aversion for futile talk, leave alone sinful conversation. Do not be concerned if you do not perceive any emotional effect of the Thikr on your heart. Your obligation is to engage in Thikrullah. The effects of spiritual sweetness, pleasure and tenderness of the heart are beyond one’s power of acquisition. Such effects are bounties which Allah Ta’ala awards according to His Will and Wisdom. Be concerned with issues within your volitional control. The emotional effect is also largely reliant on the manner in which one conducts one’s daily life. A person who soils his eyes, ears, mind, etc. with whatsapp, facebook, television, staring at ghair mahaareem, etc., etc., should not expect any emotional state for his Thikr. Nevertheless, despite his indulgence in these evils, he should not abandon Thikrullaah. Constancy in Thikrullaah will, Insha-Allah, ultimately create an aversion for these activities of sin. The Qur’aan Majeed says: “I have not created jinn and man except that they worship Me.” Thus Thikrullaah is the primary objective for which Allah Ta’ala has created us. All other activities such as Jihad, Tableegh, Knowledge, and every other laudable deed are all secondary in relation to Thikrullaah. [By Hazrat Maulana Ahmad Sadeq Desai] Taken from Reliable fatwas
  14. Assalamualaykum readers.In this post I will be continuing with my previous topic regarding the intermingling of non-mehram men and women that takes place in person as well as on the internet.I was specifically targetting the 'chatting' that is taking place in todays age that has become the norm. We no longer consider it to be an evil but instead it seems to be encouraged.However, there is a type of communication in Islam that is permitted. This is the contact between a non-mehram man and woman who communicate for the sake of Islam. But please note only in extreme cases of necessity. Those whose sole purpose is to gain knowledge for the betterment of their own imaan, as well as the entire ummah.Truly, this can be seen taking place at the time of the Prophet (saw) and his blessed companions. The Mother of the Believers hazrat Aishah (ra) has related many hadiths to inform the ummah of the blessed ways of our Prophet(saw) These hadiths were asked by the noble companions of the Prophet (saw) upon which hazrat Aisha use to reply behind a screen in the most modest manner. Yes, indeed this is a perfect example that clearly shows such communication is permitted in Islam.However, I ask you, what has become of us today? We use this very excuse of propagating Islam and instead misuse it to suit our desires. Yes, once in a while an Islamic issue may crop up but other times? Other times, readers we are involved in deep conversations be it MSN or any other way, we are involved in many hours of zina. What is the need in speaking to a non-mehram about personal issues, about petty issues which are simply not necessary.Ofcorse one may say 'my intentions are pure' truly I do not doubt that for one moment. However, all would agree that Shaytan makes it a duty upon himself to convert these intentions to please him. Muslims are urged 'Believing men and women keep your gazes down' This shows that despite having pure intentions one can easily fall into the trap of shaytan, therefore even the slightest bit of temptation is prohibitted from the start. Before any thing even takes place. Id like to apply this same aspect to internet chatting. Readers do not even go near unnecessary chatting between non-mehrams on the internet for this is the path leading to zina. We are mere mortals, we can not always control our desires, it may begin as an 'islamic issue' but result in zina.I would like to conclude by saying that yes you may find the views outlined in my entries very extreme. However as is often said 'the truth is bitter' An ill person has to undergo severe treatment and drink bad tasting medicine as a cure. Similarly this post is being put before you regardless of how bitter it sounds. I apologise for anything said that may have caused offence.Jazakallah for reading
