  1. It is rather unfortunate that we have to spend time to discuss a subject which the Muslim ummah has accepted to be a difference of opinion for over 1400 years just to address some of our enthusiastic brothers and sisters who claim that everything besides placing the hands on the chest in salah is weak! We have our sincere brothers and sisters going from Mosque to Mosque and reprimanding (and chastising) any Muslim who places their hands anywhere in Salah so this is an attempt to show that the narrations instructing to place the hands upon the chest in Salah are infact weak and disregarded. Considering the state of the Ummah we would prefer to spend our time in positive Dawah rather than getting bogged down in polemics but we are left with no choice but to address the matter in a professional and Academic manner which has been turned into a issue to divide the Ummah and cause chaos and in fact the matter is nothing but a storm in a teacup. Before proceeding understand that the placing the hands above the Navel doesn’t mean chest and nearly all narrations of the issue of placing the hands upon the chest will be discussed here with the first one in great detail since it is proclaimed to be the most authentic and the discussions on the rest summarised.

  2. Asslamo Allaikum, Are people interested and want to do their homework? Jazakullah Khairun
  3. I thought the same thing because the story is about the mother and title shifts the credit to the husband.
  4. Truly reflects the teachings fo Naqshbandi-Mujaddidi Tareeqa, Masha'Allah
  5. Asslamo Allaikum, Released with the Taufeeq of Allah (SWT) Tableeghi Jamaat: On the scale of Qur'aan & Sunnah
  6. W-Salam Aapa, I wrote it and then teh formatting and the article got completely messed up so I need help with this please. Just for this time I need many eyes reading it and picking errors, please Jzk
  7. W-Salam, Please don't forward this to anyone yet! Kindly read it because I wrote it and then the formatting got corrupted (fonts, colors etc) so read it and inform me of any errors which can be corrected. http://central-mosque.com/index.php/Civil/tableeghi-jamaat-in-the-scale-of-qur-aan-sunnah.html Its already got 282 hits and I haven't even released it yet! Jazakullah Khairun
  8. Asslamo Allaikum, The other way to look at the situation is through the eyes of the victim. Sayyidina Yusuf (AS) was slandered and accused of something which he didn't commit so he refused to come out of Jail until his character was cleared. He didn't simply "Forgive & Forget"! Today, people give lessons of forgiveness to the victim but forgiveness is enocuraged for the victim but justice is his/her right (due) so if the victim has been wronged its his/her right to seek justice. In Islam we are supposed to refute the oppressor and ensure that he/she moves away from oppression whether it is verbal or physical abuse. Very important point. Many people in our times have no regards to these matters. We asked Shaykh (Mufti) Zubair Dudha (RA) to summarise Tassawuff and he stated Shaykh (Maulana) Ashraf Ali Thanwi (RA) said its to prevent usurpion of rights of others and not necessarily just Dhik'r and every other paraphanalia which goes with it.
  9. Asslamo Allaikum, Its appearing now and playing. Jazakullah Khairun
  10. Asslamo Allaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh, Repeatedly in the Qur’aan & Sunnah we are reminded to place our reliance (Tawakkul) exclusively on Allah (SWT) and Allah (SWT) will suffice for all our needs. Allah (SWT) saved Sayyidina Ibraheem (AS) from the fire of Namrod. Allah (SWT) saved Sayyidina Musa (AS) from the army of Fir’uan and the waves of the sea. Allah (SWT) saved Sayyidina Rasul-ullah (Sallallaho Alaihe Wassallam) and Khalifatur-Rasool Sayyidina Abu-Bakr As-Sideeq (RA) from the ferocious men of Quryash who were chasing them with nothing but a spider-web and some pigeon eggs! So how is it Allah (SWT) CANNOT solve our problems? Have the powers of Allah (SWT) diminished and may we be saved from such a belief! Read blog
  11. Asslamo Allaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh, We are increasingly being approached by practising Muslims brothers and sisters who are concerned by their Internet usage so here are some thoughts... Many of our practising brothers and sisters have only a “traditional” understanding of addiction which is to say that they associate addiction with drugs, alcohol, smoking or even when they associate addiction with the Internet its generally thought to be “P ornogrpahy addiction” etc. The sad reality is that many practising brothers and sisters could be addicted to Internet in continually surfing: Islamic sites Islamic forums Continuously and repeatedly checking emails News sites (BBC etc) Watching youtube Watching movies or TV shows etc You could be spending your time on the Internet on Halal and STILL be addicted Read blog here
  12. Asslamo Allaikum, The doors to Iberian Peninsula (roughly modern day spain) were opened by the Galant 17 year old Muslim General Tariq Ibn Ziyad (RA) between 711-718. Around the 29th of April 711 the army of General Tariq Ibn Ziyad (RA) landed near a mountain and against heavy odds famously ordered all the boats to be burnt and to fight for the sake of Allah (SWT) with the ocean on their back and enemy in the front. The mountain where the army of General Tariq Ibn Ziyad (RA) drew the line in the sand and irrigated the soil of Europe with their blood of Shahadah to this day is called Jabal At-Tariq (Mountain of Tariq, latinised by later Europeans to be Gibraltar) Read blog here...

  14. Asslamo Allaikum Sister LOVE ISLAM, These 3 categories of Tawheed are controversial as the Salaf didn't categorize the Tawheed into 3 and this is what one group of Ulamah state. The others (who categories it such a manner) respond that its a linguistic categorization rather then a technical categorization. In my humble opinion, Muslims should simply affirm their belief in Tawheed of Allah (SWT) and refrain from in-depth technical Aqeedah discussions which are divisive and lead to dispute. Belief is a matter of the heart and the Sahaba (RA) worked on their Eeemaan (which is vital for salvation) and not on technical categorizations and divisions. I wrote this over 3 years and have yet to find someone who disagrees with it. http://www.sunniforum.com/forum/showthread.php?46137-3-min-discussion-with-a-Salafi-about-attributes-of-Allah-%28SWT%29 When you read classical Islamic literature there is almost no entensive debates and discussions on Aqeedah because its a straightforward matter. Jazakullah Khairun Allah (SWT) knows best.
  15. Asslamo Allaikum, There are too many Muslim women who take hormonal drugs and Brith Control Pills and there is no seriousl, professionally written and critiqued article on any Deobandi site which warns our Sisters of the side-effect of this non-nense. Catholic women have access to resarch on many safe Birth control methods and Muslim woman should be informed about these matters, particularly in Asian countries local Muslim women are being devastated by taking these chemicals!
  16. It was a seminar held by a group called 'Shamprodayikota-Jongibad Birodhi Moncho' on 17 July, 2010. In the seminar, Shawkat Ali MP, a ruling party lawmaker and deputy speaker at the house, told, "Women in burqa, I saw a very few of them in my childhood. Their number has increased now. Women those wear burqa, are used to have ugly faces, in fact they use burqa to hide their ugly face in name of religion." We cannot even imagine the atmosphere of a house if it's deputy chair is used to have so rotten attitude like this. This is absolutely disgraceful. www.bangladeshfirst.com http://www.videodizin.com/izle/deputy_speaker_shawkat_alis_disgraceful_remark_on_women_in_burqa_1290299.html
  17. Deputy Speaker of Bangladeshi Parliament said in Parliament, "...We see too many women wearing the Burqa, Women should be free in their movement. Why should they cover themselves? Wearing of Burqa is increasing in the villages, women with ugly faces using religion to cover their ugly faces..."
  18. Asslamo Allaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh, I remember buying one of the first HTC smart phones with windows and paying top money for it, having this device meant that I didn’t have to carry my PDA and phone and I could now just carry 1 device with which I could: Browse the web Check my email Open all my documents and edit them Make/Recieve Phone calls This gadget was brilliant and everyone was wow'ed by it as they saw me open document, read etc and then take a phone call in the middle of it all! This baby did EVERYTHING except make good phone calls, the connection was bad and it kept dropping the line! Let me say it again, the phone did EVERYTHING except make good phone calls! Today, we as Muslims need to revisit our purpose in life, we are politicaly & media savvy, we are aware of current affairs, we can google and obtain Ahadeeth relevant to our research but we have fogotten our purpose in our life which is: [51:56] I did not create the Jinns and the human beings except for the purpose that they should worship Me. And how do you worship Allah (SWT)? According to the Sunnah of Sayyidina Rasul-ullah (Sallaho Alaihe Wassallam) because all if we don't then our claims are useless and our life is heading in the wrong direction! [3:31] Say (O Prophet): .If you really love Allah, then follow me, and Allah shall love you and forgive you your sins. Allah is Most-Forgiving, Very-Merciful. So critique your life according to these two verses and fulfill your primary objective otherwise you may be just as useless as a phone which does EVERYTHING except make good phone calls! Smart Phones & Purpose of Life!
  19. Asslamo Allaikum, I try to keep the infoprmation upto date so its easier to update one source rather then trying to remember every forum where it is posted and then updating information because I don't like putting half jobs and then people searching around to contact Ulamah-e-Kiraam. Jazakullah Khairun
  20. 2 Muftees have given Fatwa that such a situation will be permissable but I personally have my doubts and the Sisters cancelled the event anyways...
  21. Yes, Sorry about the typo. 2 Answers: Mufti Zubair Dudha (HA): Ok, if nothing impermissable takes place Mufti (Sunnifoum): If they wait until Rabi-Awwal is over, it will be better Don't call it Meelad call it general talk etc It should be remembered that teh Deobandees are not against mentioning the Prophet (Sallaho Alaihe Wassallam) & His birth as the impression given by Barelwees but the Deobandi stance can be summarised as: Not allowing Bi'dah Not imitating Non-Muslim festivals and events in the name of Prophet (Sallaho Alaihe Wassallam)'s rememberance
  22. <p>Asslamo Allaikum,</p> <p> </p> <p>A bunch of Non-Barelwee Sister conduct a weekly Halaqah and they are discussing to have a "Halal Meelad" in our of their Halaqahs:</p> <p> </p> <ol> <li>There won't be any men attending</li> <li>It will be just them other women and their children under 8/9</li> <li>They will sing some Na'aats</li> <li>They will recite Durood</li> <li>They may do some Taleem from some books</li> </ol> <p>I am scratching my head but I am not sure if this can be classed as Haram or Bid'ah???</p> <p> </p>
  23. Asslamo Allaikum, My limited understanding is that normal feet of a woman are not Awrah but if she puts Mehndi, ankle bracletes, nail-polish, toe-rings etc then they would be counted as Awrah and need to be covered and it is also better to cover them anyways, is that right?
