  1. Delaying one's qadha Salaah Q: If I miss Isha salaah can I perform the Qaza for it on the next day. Similarly for others salaah as well, can it be performed on the next immediate day. A: If you are a saahib-e-tarteeb (i.e. you have less than six qadha salaah) then before performing the next salaah you should perform your qadha Salaah. If you are not a saahib-e-tarteeb (i.e. you have six or more qadha salaah which you have not made up for), then it is permissible for you to perform the qadha Salaah at any time. However you should not delay in making up for all your missed Salaah. And Allah

  4. Going for ruku' immediately after coming up from sajda-e-tilaawat Q: I read Surah Alaq in salaah. I did sajdah tilawat and got up from sajda to qiyaam position. Now the question is, can I go into ruku immediately or should I pause for a while in the qiyam position? A: You should recite few ayaat before going into ruku. If one immediately went into ruku after performing sajda-e-tilaawat without reciting anything, it will be makrooh though the Salaah will be valid. And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best. وحاصله على ما ذكره الفقهاء كما في البدائع ملخصا أن المتلوة خارج الصلاة تؤدى ع
  5. Q: While reciting tashahhud, if the imaam makes salam, should we continue to recite tashahud, durood shareef, dua maghfirat and make salaam? A: If one had not yet completed the tashahhud and the Imaam made salaam, then he should complete the tashahhud and thereafter make Salaam. However if he was reciting Durood-e-Ebrahim or dua and the Imaam made salaam, then he should not continue, instead he should immediately make salaam with the Imaam.

  7. Sitting on a chair and performing Qadha Salaahs Q: I have a lot of years of qadha to pray. I try to do as many as I can after each salaah. My question is can I sit on a chair to pray even more when I get tired? A: This is not a valid reason for you to sit on a chair and perform your qadha salaah. Hence the qadha salaah performed in this condition will have to be repeated. And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best. باب صفة الصلاة شروع في المشروط بعد بيان الشرط هي لغة مصدر وعرفا كيفية مشتملة على فرض وواجب وسنة ومندوب ( من فرائضها ) التي لا تصح بدونها ( التحريمة ) قائما ( وهي شرط
  8. The Procedure of performing Qadha Salaah Q: Can you please explain the procedure for Qadha Salaahs? A: One will estimate the amount of qadha Salaahs one had missed and thereafter one will begin making up for the missed Salaahs. At the time one discharges the qadha Salaah, one will make the intention that this is the last Salaah that I have missed. E.g. One is performing the qadha of one zuhr Salaah. One will make the intention that this is the last zuhr that I have missed. Similarly will be the case for all other Salaahs. Thereafter whenever one performs one will make the same intention

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best. عن ابن عمر قال : خطبنا عمر بالجابية فقال يا أيها الناس إني قمت فيكم كمقام رسول الله صلى الله عليه و سلم فينا فقال أوصيكم بأصحابي ثم الذين يلونهم ثم الذين يلونهم ثم يفشوا الكذب حتى يحلف الرجل ولا يستحلف ويشهد الشاهد ولا يستشهد ألا لا يخلون رجل ب
  10. Refraining from making musaafaha with a person who has contracted a contagious diseaseQ: If there is a disease in a particular country or region that spreads very wild and it is noted that you can get it through body or hand contact. If there is such a dangerous disease especially like this (Ebola) disease that has become a panic to most nations. Are we to stop shaking hands with our fellow Muslim brothers, although it is a great Sunnah of Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam)? or should we hope in Allah have faith in Allah and fulfil the sunnah? A: If you know that a certain person has co

  12. Q: During wudhu, is it necessary that when I wash my limbs, I should wash them from above downwards (i.e. if I am washing my face I should wash it from forehead to chin, and if I am washing my hands, I should wash it from my hands to the elbow)? There have been occasions where, for example, I started washing my hands from the elbow downwards towards my hand (or I washed my face in a manner that the chin was washed first and the forehead was washed later), and now I am concerned that my wudhu was void since I didn't maintain the order of 'top to down'. A: The wudhu is valid. However the S

  14. Performing two Jumuah Salaahs in one MusjidQ: Due to employment or education, people may not be given permission and/or will not be able to perform Jum'ah Salah at the standard Jamat time in the Masjid. Hence, in summer, a later Jum'at takes place (late afternoon) in the same Masjid so that people do no not miss Jum'ah altogether? (a) Is it permissible to organise a second Jum'ah Jamat in the same Masjid where one Jum'ah Salaah has already taken place?

  16. Q: Can istikhara be made of behalf of another person? I was told that this is against the sunnah and not established in the Qur'an and Hadith. A: We have not come across any prohibition in this regard. Istikharah is a form of dua and making dua for another Muslim is established in the Hadith. Hence istikharah will be the same.

  18. Exchanging giftsQ: There is a custom in some communities, that is; when we give some prepared food to our neighbor or somebody they always give back something which they prepared, in the same plate in return. The problem is, when nothing is found in their home they refuse to return our plate empty and say that, "I will give later"because of custom. Is this an act of sunnah to give back something as hadya in the same plate when one receives hadya from a neighbor or someone else? A: Exchanging gifts to increase mahabat is a Sunnah. However they should not hold back peoples utensils as this

  22. Q: I am aware of the fact that dogs can't be kept as pets inside the apartment (or house) because their sliva is najis. I am also aware of the fact that Islam is the most accommodating religion. I am an OCD patient and I wanted to inquire the ruling on therapy dogs for anxiety/depression inside the apartment. I live in Canada and I don't have any family here to support me emotionally and therefore the anxiety kept growing until I became an OCD patient. A: It is impermissible to keep a dog as a pet. The Hadith explains that the home wherein a dog is kept, the malaaikah do not enter such a
