  1. 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

  4. 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?

  5. No one is banned from the forum without legitimate reason Brother CH however this topic will not be open for discussion with the approach of the final blessed days of Ramadhan. If need be, it will be opened after Ramadhaan for amicable discussions and questions for more clarity. I do not intend however to get into unnecessary discussions on matters beyond my knowledge since I have tried to explain to the best of my ability with what I learnt from the best teachers on this subject and years of experience with women’s menstruation problems and consulting different Mufti sahibs in the UK.

  7. This is an excerpt from one of Tariq Masood’s speeches. Its translated more or less meaning. To maintain relations with your relatives is an important principle in our faith. If one doesn’t have the hereafter as objective to maintain relations during these times is impossible. Because people are self interested. As long as you are meeting someone else’s interest, then things are good. The day you are not meeting the other person’s interest, nothing for the other person to benefit from, the relation is no more. Brothers not on talking terms. Sisters not on talking terms. Fat

  8. 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

  9. Imām al-Ghazālī (رحمه الله) on overcoming arrogance: If you see someone who is older than you, then think that that person has done more ʿibādah (acts of worship) than you. If you see someone younger than you, then think that that person has less sins than you. If you see someone more knowledgeable than you, then think that there is no doubt he is better than you. If you see someone with less knowledge than you, then think that he has committed sins out of ignorance, while you sinned knowingly.

  10. 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

  12. 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.

  13. FREE ASSOCIATION AND PRAYER In therapy we use a technique called free association, a practice in psychoanalytic therapy, which is to let the client share thoughts, words, and anything else that comes to the mind freely. Now, the benefit of this is to help clients understand what they really think and feel about themselves, others, and the situations they are experiencing versus what they tell themselves they think and feel, in an atmosphere of non-judgmental curiosity and acceptance. A powerful experience! Now, I've been thinking about the concept of 'Dua' in our

  16. 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

Question I’m not sure how to reconcile the rulings on nail polish and henna. if one of the reasons for the prohibition of nail polish is that it is adornment that can be seen by non-mahram men, how is the application of henna permissible? I don’t know if this is related but i was also curious about the ruling for nose rings and other visible jewelry. Answered by: Mufti Abdurrahman ibn Yusuf Assalamu alaykum In the name of Allah, the Inspirer of truth. The reason for discouraging nail polish and not henna is mostly because

  20. 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. I often talk about love because i really believe that a strong and peaceful househol

The following hadeeth came to mind: “Show mercy to those on earth, and in turn Allah Ta‘ala will show mercy to you.” The remedy is so simple, i.e. bringing some joy and cheer to the next person, and Allah Ta‘ala will bring cheer to your heart. This in actual fact is the fundamental teaching of Islam. Ihyaauddeen.co.za

  26. As-Salaam alaikum, Abu Fayd Thawban Ibn Ibrahim Dhu'l Nun al-Misri, may Allah be Merciful to him, was asked about love. He responded:-- "It is to love that which Allah loves, to hate that which Allah hates, to perform all good, to reject anything that busies you from Allah, and not to fear any blame for the sake of Allah, while being gentle with believers, stern with disbelievers, and to follow the Messenger of Allah in matters of religion."

When a person is overcome by depression and grief, I generally advise them to engage in a certain muraaqabah (meditation). This meditation is a cure for all types of depression, worries and anxieties. The method of this meditation is for one to always reflect and ponder over the fact that “Allah Ta‘ala loves me and wants the best for me”. In the Qur’aan Majeed, Allah Ta‘ala says that He is the true friend and g

The servant managed to kill the animal but couldn’t prevent his majesty from losing a finger. Furious and without showing gratitude, the King said, “If Allah was good, I would not have been attacked and lost a finger.” The servant replied, “Despite this, I can only tell you that Allah is perfect and everything He does is perfect.” Incensed by the respons

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.
