  2. Mufti Muhammad Shafi Explaning following incident with Shaykh al-Hind Moulānā Mahmūd al-Hasan Someone once asked Shaykh al-Hind about the hadith: “The Prophet ﷺ has said that Satan does not pass the road which is used by 'Umar." Because the same or similar was not said in relation to the Prophet ﷺ or Abu Bakr (رضي الله عنه), the question naturally arises as to why Satan should have feared Umar (رضي الله عنه) alone, even though both the Prophet ﷺ and Abu Bakr (رضي الله عنه) enjoyed a higher status than him. Mufti Muhammad Shafi' said that in responding to any kind of critical questio

  4. Assalaamu ‘alaykum warahmatullah I will try to answer your question to the best of my ability according to what I have learnt in these “billion courses and gazillion articles”. On a side note, these courses and articles are mostly very basic, outlining the maxims for awareness. The only in-depth courses in the UK that I know of were conducted by Ustadhah Hidaya Hartford and Mufti Abdul Rahman Mangera sahib. I know there is one in Pakistan which is in Urdu and which many UK sisters have joined. Regarding: Absolutely agree with you. They probably did not eve

  6. Tips for the sisters. But then if the wife is of this nature, i don't see why the man would bother to marry more than one. :D From Ahmed Al Hamdan He told her: I want to marry a second wife. She said: Please don’t do it! He said: Do you hate me doing it?! She said: Yes. He said: Those that hate which Allah has revealed is a disbeliever, because Allah said: (That is because they disliked what Allah revealed, so He rendered worthless their deeds). She said: take notice, there is a difference, I do not deny the permissibility of polygamy and I do not say that

  9. 10 Points on the Day of ‘Arafah The day of ‘Arafah is the most important day for a Haji. Whilst only a select few of the Ummah are chosen by Allah Ta’ala to physically be on the plains of ‘Arafat on the 9th of Dhul Hijjah, there are several virtues and deeds mentioned regarding the day of ‘Arafah which apply to those afar as well. Hereunder are ten of them. The Virtue of the Day 1. The day of ‘Arafah is one of the best days of the year, Sayyidna Anas (radiyallahu’anhu) says: “The day of ‘Arafah equals 10 000 days in virtue”!

  11. What is Tasawwuf (Sufism)? Are those who follow it on a different religion than islam or is it a different sect within islam? Why even using such term if the Prophet ﷺ or the Sahabah (may Allah be pleased with them) never used it themselves? I felt obliged to make this post due to the amount of ignorance and confusions people have regarding Tasawwuf. This post, if Allah wills, will clear up some of the confusions. *Note that I only intend to briefly explain this topic and not its entirety.* To begin with, there are many theories regarding the origin of the word tasawwuf puril

I’d like to suggest that, when we have these conversations about Hamas and Israel’s bombing campaign, we begin with the necessary context and historical perspective.

Yesterday, June 12, the Palestinian flag was painted on each door of the houses of Lifta village, whose residents were forcibly displaced because of the Nakba (1948), and the phrase “we will return” was written on the doors of the displaced houses, signifying the affirmation of the return and that we will not leave Lifta and will not allow the occupation forces to carry out their plans to destroy Lifta and build a new Jewish neighborhood on what was left of this village.The flags were painted in a specific position, a specific place on the sides of the doors, with a specific symbol above them,

  16. The Fluctuating Heart It is inhuman and impossible to retain a high level of spirituality, imaan and awareness of Allah سبحانه وتعالى and these things will naturally fluctuate in a person. The reason the heart is called ‘qalb‘ in Arabic is because qalb means ‘to flip and change’ and the condition of the heart is constantly flipping and changing. Even the Companions felt like this on occasions as is illustrated by an incident reported by Imam Muslim. Once Sayyiduna Hanzalah رضى الله عنه was in the company of Rasulullah صلى الله عليه وسلم, but when he left and returned home he became preo

  17. I have never understood as to why there are a billion courses, gazillion articles and trillion apps to keep track of a Mas'ala which has affected mankind from day one. There is absolutely no way that Sahabiyyat kept track of calendars or took extensive notes and a large number of Muslim women cannot read or write. I spoke to Mufti Asadullah Shehbaz (HA) at Jamiatur-Rasheed (Karachi) and before I share his answer, I would like to hear from a Sister as to why this issue is so complex that it needs tables and Apps to track?

  18. Alhamdulillah Mufti Abdur Rahman Mangera sahib's new level 2 course on Mastering the Fiqh of Menstruation (Book of Haydh from Al-Fatawa al-Tatarkhaniyyah and al-Muhit al-Burhani) began today. The first lesson included a discussion on why it is necessary to look at various Fatawa books on this subject and the many differences of opinion of earlier Scholars and perhaps at a later stage for Ulama from around the world to decide whether opinions from various Madahaahib can be taken in certain situations. The reason he said was that in our age, instead of women having regular cycles, diet

  20. MASTERING FIQH OF MENSTRUATION - LEVEL 2 The first level of Whitethread’s course, “Mastering the Fiqh of Menstruation,” was an in-depth study of Imam Ibn ‘Abidin al-Shami’s commentary on Birgivi’s Manual (Manhal al-Waridin). The course, taken by over 500 students, focused primarily on Imam Abu Yusuf’s rulings. However, students and instructors equally felt it would be beneficial to study Imam Muhammad’s opinion. The second level of this course will now delve into relevant sections of Imam Farid al-Din ‘Alim ibn al-‘Ala’s Al-Fatawa al-Tatarkhaniyya (d. 786) and Imam Burhan al-D

I didn’t have an unlawful relationship. Despite my sincere efforts I wasn’t able to obtain her. But I believe that Allah will provide me someone better. Sheikh replies this happens quite a bit. Truly difficult situation. You prayed all this time despite your efforts in the end you are not able to obtain her.

  22. Pregnant women fasting My question is regarding my wifes pregnancy and fasting. My wife is 7.5 months pregnant and we have decided that she doesnt fast this year because its the main stage for her pregnancy and it could be a risk. So how much money or people do we feed for every fast. Answer: In the name of Allah, the most Beneficent, the most Merciful. If a woman is in her early stages of her pregnancy and by fasting it would not affect the health of the mother and nor of the unborn child then it is obligatory upon her to fast. However, if the woman genuinely f

  24. With respect to women visiting the cemetery, there are three famous opinions of the Fuqaha (jurists) and scholars. The first opinion is that it is generally permissible for women to visit the graveyard. This allowance is on account of the tradition of the Prophet (SA) in which he said, ‘I used to prohibit you from visiting the graveyard, but now you can visit it. (Musnad ahmad). Those scholars who allow this, state that the above tradition includes the permission for women also (to visit the cemetery) as it is for men. The great jurist Shamsul A’imma Saraks; has preferre

  26. Question: What are the differences between the words “Qalb”, “Fu’aad” and “Lubb” as used in the Qur’an? Answer: As salaamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh, The Qur’an expresses the word “heart” using different Arabic words at different times; these can mostly be summed up as the Arabic words qalb, fuaad and lubb. Since in the Arabic language, there is no such thing as an exact synonym, there are subtle differences in the root meanings and indications given by the different words that must be understood if one wants to understand the nuances of the Qur’anic message.

  27. Q: I know that kaffaarah fasts have to be kept consecutively, with no break in between. My question is that if a female has to keep kaffaarah fasts, then how will she keep them consecutively, taking into consideration that her haidh will come between the fasts? A: The days of her haidh are excluded from her kaffaarah days. Hence, immediately after the haidh ends, she should continue with the kaffaarah. And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best. قلت أرأيت المرأة يجب عليها شهران متتابعان فتحيض فيهما أتستقبل الصيام أم كيف تصنع قال إن كان الحيض يصيبها في

  30. Q. What are the different types of Mahr for Nikah and how are they calculated? (Question published as received) A. One of the many rights of a woman upon a man at the time of Nikah is Mahr (Dowry). Allah Ta’ala states in the Quran, “And give to the women (whom you marry) their Mahr (Dowry) with a good heart.” (Surah Nisaa; V: 4) Hereunder are three types of Mahr (Dowry): 1) Minimum Mahr: The minimum Mahr stipulated for a woman is 10 silver coins (dirhams). This is equivalent to 30.615 grams of silver and R405 (as of November 17, 2020). A man cannot give

  31. The right woman is a blessing from Allah. If you have a woman by your side, who makes you feel at ease, a woman who you feel at peace with. When you look at her you feel love and mercy in your heart. She defends your honor and you defend hers. She fears her Creator and you fear Him. She cares about your rights and you care about hers. If you love each other for the sake of Allah, if you care about each others akhira and do everything to make each other better. If you got this.. You are richer than most people.

  33. As-Salaam alaikum, The Noble Messenger of Allah, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, said:-- "The thing which has obscenity will be spoilt by it and the thing which has modesty will be beautified by it." (Tirmidhi) This hadith informs us of the secret of appearing truly beautiful. We especially need to be reminded of this hadith in current times, when modesty is attacked as lack of confidence and vulgarity is praised as boldness. Subhanallah!! truly, values are inverted as the Day of Judgement approaches.

Psychological Tsunami By: Haleh Banani, MA Clinical Psychology Domestic violence affects the psychological and emotional well being of a woman the way a tsunami brings colossal destruction and unparalleled devastation to a metropolitan city.
