  7. (Part 1) Since Hajj has been cancelled for millions of Muslims across the globe, many people who were intending to go will be feeling disheartened. However, Allah Ta’ala in his infinite mercy has attached the reward of optional Hajj to certain other deeds for the benefit of everyone. We can take consolation from the following narrations which promise the reward of Hajj: 1. Wudu at home before proceeding for Salah with Jamaah Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam said, “One who makes wudhu and leaves his home to attend the Fard salah in congregation receives the reward of a Haaji in the state of Ihram.” (Sunan Abi Dawud) 2. Salaatul Ishraaq Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, “Whoever offers his Fajr salah in congregation and then remains seated making the dhikr of Allah until (approximately 15 mins after sunrise) after which he offers two rak’aats of (Ishraq) Salaah, will receive the reward of one complete Hajj and one complete Umrah.” (Sunan Tirmidhi) 3. Serving one’s Parents Sayyiduna Anas Radhiyallahu Anhu reports that a man came to Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam and said, “I wish to participate in Jihad, but I cannot afford it.” Rasulullah Sallallahu ‘Alayhi wa Sallam enquired if any of his parents were alive, to which he said, “Yes! My mother is alive.” Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam said, “Show Allah (the good manner) in which you serve her. If you do so, you will be like a: Haji, a Mu’tamir (one doing ‘Umrah) and a Mujaahid (One striving in Allah’s way).” (Abu Ya’la, Tabarani) 4. To recite “Subhanallah” 100 times in the morning and evening Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam said, “Whoever recites Subhanallah 100 times in the morning and 100 times in the evening is like one who performed Hajj100 times!” (Sunan Tirmidhi) 5. Esha Salah in Congregation A reliable Tabi’e, Uqbah ibn ‘Abdil Ghaafir (rahimahullah) said, “Offering the Esha salah in congregation equals the reward of Hajj, and the Fajr in congregation equals Umrah.” Almiftah.com
  8. How can I lead a Sinless life? Question: How can I lead a Sinless life? Answer: In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful. As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh By sinless, we understand you enquire about living a life without committing sins. It is our belief that only the prophets are sinless [Masoom] and they do not commit sins. Everyone else besides prophets could commit sins, but could be saved from committing sins [mahfooz]. There are two most effective ways of inculcating the quality of a sinless life. Allah says: يَـٰٓأَيُّہَا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُواْ ٱتَّقُواْ ٱللَّهَ Translation: O you who believe! Fear Allah [Surah Taubah/ Verse 119] The first prescription is inculcating in one Allah consciousness. Whenever one is in public or in privacy, he is conscious of Allah seeing him. He feels ashamed to violate any order of Allah in the presence of Allah. To simplify this, it is similar to a son in the presence of his father. The difference is the presence of the father is physical. Allah is Omni-present. He is Al-Baseer [all seeing]. There is no time that one is absent from Allah. It is such Allah consciousness that restrains one from committing sins. This quality is inculcated by adopting the company of Allah conscious people [the Ahlullah]. This is the second prescription referred to in the verse: وَكُونُواْ مَعَ ٱلصَّـٰدِقِينَ Translation: And be with the truthful ones. [Surah Taubah/ Verse 119] It is common knowledge one gets influenced with his environment. If one sits in a perfume shop, he gets the good fortune of enjoying the sweet fragrance of the various perfumes and feels refreshed. If one sits in the company of a blacksmith, he will inhale dirt and smokes and feel miserable. When one sits in the company of the Ahlullah, the feeling of Allah consciousness and the love of Allah boiling in their heart can be easily felt. The Ahlullah are fully conscious of Allah. They conduct all their affairs as though they can see Allah and have the conviction that Allah is seeing them. While they have the potential to commit sins, the Allah consciousness in their hearts prevents them from doing so and they live a sinless life. Attach yourself to the Ahlullah to be able to achieve your objective of leading a sinless life. For more information refer to the book: What is the reality of Bai ‘at and Spiritual Reformation?

  10. Narrated Al-Bara' bin `Azib: Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) said, "O so-and-so, whenever you go to your bed (for sleeping) say, 'O Allah! I have surrendered myself over to you and have turned my face towards You, and leave all my affairs to You and depend on You and put my trust in You expecting Your reward and fearing Your punishment. There is neither fleeing from You nor refuge but with You. I believe in the Book (Qur'an) which You have revealed and in Your Prophet (Muhammad) whom You have sent.' If you then die on that night, then you will die as a Muslim, and if you wake alive in the morning then you will receive the reward." Bukhari "‏ يَا فُلاَنُ إِذَا أَوَيْتَ إِلَى فِرَاشِكَ فَقُلِ اللَّهُمَّ أَسْلَمْتُ نَفْسِي إِلَيْكَ، وَوَجَّهْتُ وَجْهِي إِلَيْكَ وَفَوَّضْتُ أَمْرِي إِلَيْكَ، وَأَلْجَأْتُ ظَهْرِي إِلَيْكَ، رَغْبَةً وَرَهْبَةً إِلَيْكَ، لاَ مَلْجَأَ وَلاَ مَنْجَا مِنْكَ إِلاَّ إِلَيْكَ، آمَنْتُ بِكِتَابِكَ الَّذِي أَنْزَلْتَ، وَبِنَبِيِّكَ الَّذِي أَرْسَلْتَ‏.‏ فَإِنَّكَ إِنْ مُتَّ فِي لَيْلَتِكَ مُتَّ عَلَى الْفِطْرَةِ، وَإِنْ أَصْبَحْتَ أَصَبْتَ أَجْرًا ‏"‏‏.‏
  11. As slamu Alykum, What should one do when saw a bad dream? What should be done when one sees a good dream? Sometime one dream has some bad portion and good portion as well. What should be done in this case? In all three case, I am looking for answers like changing sides, spitting, reciting of dua etc, telling the dream to some one and best timing to tell the dreams etc. Jazakallahu Khairun Answer The Reality of Dreams Qaadhi Thanaullah Panipati (RA) mentions in Tafseer Mazhari, ‘The images seen in sleep are known as dreams.’ Dreams are messengers from the unknown, voices from our collective subconscious, warners of deep inner disturbance in the individual psyche, bearing glad tidings of good things to come or echoes of happiness or sadness and long hidden memories. Some dreams belong to the domain of personal experience and some are prophetic voices of the future. They are a universal phenomenon. Hence, the art of interpretations is a science known to selected and gifted individuals. Dreams are of 3 types: a) Images of incidents which transpired in real life b) Frightening images indoctrinated by Shaytaan. c) Dreams in which Allah Ta’ala opens the unseen to the heart. This is a true dream. The above 2 types of dreams are false dreams. Allaamah Aloosi (RA), the mufti of Baghdad, explaining the reality and essence of dreams says, Allah Ta’ala creates in the heart of a sleeping person certain thoughts or images as he does to the heart of a conscious person. Allah then makes these thoughts or images signs to event which He will create in future. Nabi (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) said, ‘Nothing remains of prophethood but glad tidings.’ The companions asked, ‘What are glad tidings?’ Nabi (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) said, ‘Pleasant true dreams’. True dreams constitute a portion of the knowledge and fundamental make-up of Nubuwwat (prophethood), hence, generally the more resemblance a person has with prophethood by his actions, speech, piety, knowledge and character, accordingly, his dreams will also generally be true. Dreams are most potent during the latter part of the night, during siesta, during the time and during the fruit ripening season. This is probably, based on the Hadith, ‘When the time till draw near, the dreams of a Mu’min will not be false.’ Ulama has interpreted this to also mean, ‘the night and day being equal in duration and the abovementioned normally occurs when the day and night are equal in duration. Ulama mention certain etiquettes of dreams, derived from the Ahaadith. Nabi (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) has stated, ‘He should not narrate it to anyone’. It should be narrated to a beloved and intelligent person. Nabi (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) said, ‘The dream is like a string suspended on the feet of a bird, as long as it is not related to anyone, the moment it is narrated, it will transpire.’ If a person sees an evil dream, he should; a) Spit lightly 3 times to the left side, b) Change the side on which he was sleeping, c) Perform 2 Rakaats of Salaat seeking protection.

  12. In the name of Allah, the most Beneficent, the most Merciful. The interpretations of dreams is a gift given by Allah to some of his chosen servants therefore dreams should only be discussed with ones close friends or ones shaikh or guide. (Mazahirul Haqq p.330 v.5) If it is a good dream then it is from Allah ; he should thank Him and may tell others of the dream. If it is a bad dream, one should seek refuge from Allah and should not tell anyone of the dream. Saaiduna Abu Saaed ul-Khudri narrates that he heard the Prophet of Allah say ‘When someone amongst you sees a good and pleasing dream, he should know that it is from Allah, and so he should praise an thank Allah, and describe to others what he saw in his dream. But is he sees something that he dislikes then it is from Shaitan, so he should seek refuge from Allah from its evil and should not mention it to anyone’. (Sahih Bukhari p.1034 v.2) The following ahadith have been taken from Imam Nawawi’s Riyadhus Saliheen with regards to seeing a bad or scary dream. Saaiduna Abu Qatadah reports that the Prophet of Allah has said, “A good vision (dream) is from Allah and a bad dream is from the Satan. He who sees something in a dream that he dislikes, should blow thrice on his left, must seek Allah’s Refuge from the evil of the Satan (i.e., by saying: A`udhu billahi minash-Shaitanir-Rajim). Then it will not harm him.” (Sahih Bukhari and Sahih Muslim). Saaiduna Jabir reports that the Prophet of Allah said, “When one of you sees a bad dream let him blow three times on his left, seek refuge in Allah from the Satan three times (i.e., by saying: A`udhu billahi minash-Shaitanir-Rajim) and change the side on which he was lying.” (Sahih Muslim) (Extracted from Riyadhus Saliheen p.245) From the aforementioned ahadith we can conclude that scary dreams and nightmares are from Shaitan and they have no meanings. One should not tell anyone of the scary dream and as mentioned in the hadith blow three times on his left, seek refuge in Allah from the Satan three times (i.e., by saying: A`udhu billahi minash-Shaitanir-Rajim) and change the side on which he was lying.

  15. Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyah (may Allah have mercy on him) said: The basic principle is that anything that is a means that leads to fitnah (temptation) is not permissible, because the means that lead to mischief must be barred, if that is not outweighed by a greater interest.
