(Um Ma’bad al=Khuzaa’iyyah. Kanz al-‘Ummal #3660) O Allah, purify my heart from hypocrisy, my deeds from ostentation and pretension, my tongue from lies, and my eyes from wrongful glances.

    As-Salaam alaikum, On the authority of Abu Hurayrah, may Allah be pleased with him, it was reported that the Messenger of Allah, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, asked: "Do you know who the bankrupt person is"? They said, 'A bankrupt man amongst us is one who has neither dirham with him nor wealth.' He said: "The bankrupt person of my Nation would be he who comes on the Day of Resurrection with prayers and fasts and zakat but he hurled abuses upon this person, brought calumny against that person, unlawfully consumed the wealth of that person, shed the blood of that person, and beat that person. So his good deeds would be credited to the deeds of those people [ by way of retaliation ] and if his good deeds fall short to clear the account, their sins would be added to his and he would be thrown in the Fire." (Muslim No. 2581/6579) Be mindful, do not be bankrupt!!

    Few people collectively carrying out one nafil Qurbaani in one sheep or goat Q: Can few people buy one sheep or goat and carry out a nafil qurbaani? A: There are two views among our Ulama regarding this mas'alah. According to Mufti Shaf'ee Saheb, Mufti Abdur Raheem Laajpuri and Moulana Yusuf Ludyaanwi (Rahmatullahi Alayhim), one nafil qurbaani can only be carried out on behalf of one person. Two or more people cannot collectively carry out nafil qurbaani in one animal. According to Moulana Ashraf Ali Thaanwi (Rahmatullahi Alayh) and Mufti Mahmood Gangohi (Rahmatullahi Alayh), one nafil qurbaani can be carried out on behalf of few people collectively. It should be borne in mind that this ruling pertains to the validity of the nafil qurbaani if carried out by more than one person. As far as the sawaab is concerned, all the Ulama agree that if one person carries out the nafil qurbaani, he can convey the sawaab to as many people as he wishes. And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best. وقال بعض أهل العلم: لا تجزي الشاة إلا عن نفس واحدة، وهو قول عبد الله بن المبارك، وغيره من أهل العلم (سنن الترمذي 1/277) (وإن) (مات أحد السبعة) المشتركين في البدنة (وقال الورثة اذبحوا عنه وعنكم) (صح) عن الكل استحسانا لقصد القربة من الكل، ولو ذبحوها بلا إذن الورثة لم يجزهم لأن بعضها لم يقع قربة (الدر المختار 6/326) امداد الفتاوى 3/573 فتاوى محموديه 26/310 امداد المفتين 2/957 فتاوى رحيميه 10/56 آپ کے مسائل اور ان كا حل 4/194 Answered by: Mufti Zakaria Makada Checked & Approved: Mufti Ebrahim Salejee (Isipingo Beach)

    Pandemic & its Effect People stuck at home are coming up with all kinds of things; some create fear and some bring a smile : ) You need to be careful, people are going crazy about being in lockdown. I’ve actually just been talking about this with the microwave and toaster while drinking coffee and all of us agreed things are getting worse. I didn’t mention anything to the washing machine as she puts a different spin on things and certainly not to the fridge as he is acting cold and distant. I did discuss it with the hoover and he said the whole thing sucks. Meanwhile, the blender has mixed feelings and the taps kept running hot and cold about the idea. The whisk refused to talk about it because she didn’t want to whip things intoa frenzy and the eggs kept quiet because they didn’t want to get a beating. I didn’t check with the oven because she’s far too hot headed. The bin justspouted a whole load of rubbish about the situation and the freezer just gave my a frosty reception. In the end, the iron calmed me down: she said everything will be fine - no situation is too pressing. The tin at the back of the cupboard with no label on thinks it’s a total mystery. The knife made some very cutting remarks. The squash was very cordial about it all. Unlike the lemon who was very bitter about it

    Sunnah posture of sitting while eating Q: What are the Sunnah postures for eating? A: The sunnah posture of sitting while eating on the floor is that one sits with both knees on the ground (in the tashahhud posture), or with the right knee raised. And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best. فالمستحب في صفة الجلوس للأكل أن يكون جاثيا على ركبتيه وظهور قدميه أو ينصب الرجل اليمنى ويجلس على اليسرى (عمدة القاري 21/44) أحسن الفتاوى (9/50) Answered by: Mufti Zakaria Makada Checked & Approved: Mufti Ebrahim Salejee (Isipingo Beach)
