  1. Asslamo Allaikum, I have delayed moving forward on purpose but what should I do? Jazakullah Khairun
  2. http://www.muftisays.com/blog/Muadh_Khan/3150_22-01-2013/prayer-of-a-hanafi-behind-another-imam.html Asslamo Allaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh, Many Muslims who follow the Hanafi Madhab in our times are confused about the matter of praying behind an Imam who is following another Madhab because the method or conditions of Wudhu or prayer is different to the Hanafi Madhab. Firstly, please understand that the four (4) Madhabs are based on Ahadeeth and actions of Sahaba (RA) and the later generations and in the earliest generations of Islam we find no precedence of believers refusing to pray behind each other. Secondly, this issue can only be discussed with respect to Aqeedah (creedal differences) or Fiqh (jurisprudence differences) and Hanafi Ulamah have spoken with regards to both. Aqeedah (Creedal point of view): Imam Tahawi (RA) was a Hanafi, an Imam in Aqeedah and he makes the point sufficiently clear: ونری الصلاۃ خلف کل بر وفاجر من اھل القبلۃ ، ونصلی من مات منھم 69. We agree with doing the prayer behind any of the People of the Qibla whether rightful or wrongful, and doing the funeral prayer over any of them when they die. Fiqh (jurisprudence point of view): Shah Abdul-Aziz [1745-1823] (RA) was the eldest son of Shah Waliullah (RA) and a giant knowledge of Hadeeth & Hanafi Fiqh and an accepted authority, he severally castigates those who question this matter, calls them narrow minded and says that their opinion is not worth listening to. he states in his Fatawa: Q) Is it permissible for someone following the Hanafi Madhab to follow Shaf’ae, Maliki, Hanbali and all of them in prayer? A) The prayer of someone following the Hanafi Madhab is permissible and correct behind a Shaf’ae, Maliki, Hanbali and this is because in principle (*) there is no difference between these Madhabs and this command is evident from books of Ahdaeeth & Fiqh but in our times some Ulamah from Transoxiana due to their deficient knowledge hold “Taa’sub” and talk about this matter but their discussions are to be rejected because it is against Fiqh & Aheedth and their personal Ijtehaad and it is absolutely not worth being relied upon or even listening to! In Makkah Muadhama, this method is being practised upon that people pray behind each other and if this was not the case then what would be the difference between (different) Madhabs of Ahlus-Sunnah and deviant sects? According to Ahlus-Sunnah and all trustworthy and major Fuqaha truth is encircled within the four (4) Madhabs and this matter should be looked into authentic books of principle so the heart finds content (in it). Urdu Fatwa (*) Here he means that all four Madhabs are part of Ahlus-Sunnah Wal Jamaah in principle and not that principles within the Madhabs are the same! Issue of Imam wiping on Thin Socks? Caught in a situation? I am being bombarded with emails so here is a quick response. According to Hanbali Madhab the socks which are deemed suitable for Mas'ah simply need to be thick enough for the underlying skin to not be discernible. Basically: thickness is a quality that is not sought in and of itself; thus it is neither sought in and of itself nor is it something quantitative. So what follows is that regardless of the "thickness" or the "thinness" of the material: as long as the color of the underlying skin is not discernible, then it is considered "thick". Prayer is permissible according to Shaykh (Mufti) Rafi Usmani (HA): Ulamah of Yorkshire put this question to Shaykh (Mufti) Rafi Usmani (HA) about praying behind someone on an occasion and he (HA) responded that an assumption should be made that the Imam is following conditions of Hanbali Madhab and prayer will be valid and doesn't need to be repeated. I have personally checked and verified this. Prayer is permissible according to Shaykh (Mufti) Mahmoud Usmani (HA): This is what Shaykh Mahmoud Usmani said, emphasizing that we have not been made morally responsible to pry into the affairs of others, especially when doing so entails undue hardship, and that the default assumption regarding all human actions (as explained by Imam Abul Hasan al-Karkhi, the great Hanafi faqih) is that they are valid and sound, and we are expected to interpret them in such a manner whenever possible. Or assume that his socks are thick enough (e.g. in the Hanbali school, whose conditions are less taxing than the others in this matter). Issue of Imam wiping on Thin Socks? When an alternative is available? As a believer you are supposed to leave alone matters which places doubt in your heart so the superior method would be for you to remove doubt from your worship and if there is another congregation available then you should opt to pray behind an Imam who is not wiping on thin socks according to Hanafi Madhab. عن أبي محمد الحسن بن على بن ابي طالب سبط رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم وريحانته رضي الله عـنهـما ، قـال : حـفـظـت مـن رســول الله صلى الله عـليـه وسلم : دع ما يـريـبـك إلى ما لا يـريـبـك On the authority of Abu Muhammad al-Hasan bin Ali bin Abi Taib, the grandson of the Messenger of Allah, sallallahu ëalayhi wasallam, and who is dearest to him, radiyallahu ëanhuma, who said: I committed to memory from the Messenger of Allah, sallallahu ëalayhi wasallam, (the following words): Leave that about which you are in doubt for that about which you are in no doubt. [At-Tirmidhi]

  6. Asslamo Allaikum, I am trying to get a good brother (friend) married and I messed up on so many levels its unbelievable: I got the height of the Sister completely wrong and thats because I have never really looked at her I told her about it (he is practsing, nice guy etc) before I told him so its like I set expectations and he is travelling so he can't respond and she will think that he is avoiding the topic What is a good way to do this without recking people emotionally? I am an idiot (I know) but all I was trying to do is to get 2 people who are practising married. All is still not lost but whats the proper procedure? without messing people up! I didn't mean to do it and they (both) havn't said anything but I do feel that I have messed up, big time! :-) I think I better stick to refutations :-)
  7. Asslamo Allaikum, May Allah (SWT) increase the Dawah efforts of Dr Zakir Naik (HA) and give Barakah in it (Ameen) but he is a Da'ee at end of the day and not a Faqih so just like we wouldn't go to a Mufti to seek medical treatment we wouldn't go to Dr Zakir Naik (HA) to seek Fatwaas and unfortunately that's what he seems to be doing lately and venturing into the Fatwa world. Here is just a quick example (I am skipping Hanafees on purpose) Dr Zakir Naik's claim: Placing the hands in Salah below the Navel is a weak opinion and there is no Authentic narration on this issue at all and the most Authentic opinion is placing the hands on the Chest. Shaykhul-Islam Ibn Taymiyah Al-Hanbali (RA) refuting Dr Zakir Naik and affirming the narration of placing the hands below the Navel: Okay here is some references, and since you know Arabic you will understand it, Shaykh Ibn Taymiyyah al-Hanbali discusses at length the topic of where to place the hands in Salah, in his Commentary of al-'Umdah (al-Fiqh) of Ibn Qudamah al-Hanbali and thus on Page 67 he says: و يجعلهما تحت سرته، أو تحت صدره، من غير كراهة لواحد منهما والأول أفضل في إحدى الروايات عنه، اختارها الخرقي والقاضي و غيرهما رواه أحمد وابو داود والدرقطني عن أبي جحيفة قال قال علي رضي الله عنه - إن من السنة وضع الأكفّ على الأكفّ تحت السرة - و يذكر ذلك من حديث ابن مسعود عن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم وقد احتج به الإمام أحمد. وروى ابن بطة عن أبي هريرة رضي الله عنه - من السنة أن يضع يده اليمنى في الصلاة تحت السرة - والصحابي إذا قال - السنة - انصرف إلى سنة النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم، ولأن ذلك أبعد عن التكفير المكروه وفي الأخرى: تحت الصدر أفضل، اختارها طائفة من أصحابنا، لما روى خرير الضبي قال - رأيت عليا يمسك شماله بيمينه على الرسغ فوق السرة - رواه ابو داود وروى قبيصة بن هلب عن أبيه قال - رأيت النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم يضع هذه على صدره - ووضع يحيى بن سعيد - اليمنى على اليسرى فوق المفصل - رواه أحمد. والرواية الثالثة هما سواء: اختارها ابن أبي موسى غيره لتعارض الآثار في ذلك. فأما وضعهما على الصدر، فيكره، نص عليه وذكر عن أبي أيوب عن أبي معشر قال: يكره التكفير في الصلاة، و قال: التكفير: يضع يمينه عند صدره في الصلاة شرح العمدة لإبن تيمية (Direct Download to the PDF Copy, Page ٦٧) And here is Ibn al-Qayyim's verdict from Badaa'i al-Fawaa'id: إنَّ السنة الصحيحة وضع اليدين تحت السرة، وحديث علي في هذا صحيح، وإنَّ وضع اليدين على الصدر منهي عنه بالسنة وهي النهي عن التكفير بدائع الفوائد (You can download the book here) Shaykh Mahhir (HA) from Multaqa Ahlul-Hadeeth refuting Dr Zakir Naik and affirming the narration of placing the hands on the chest is weak: http://www.ahlalhdeeth.com/vb/showpost.php?p=492417&postcount=28 First, Mo'mal bin Ismail from Sufian AlThauri from Asim bin Kulaib from his father from Wa'il ibn Hujar, and mentioning chest in this narration is deviation and mistake from Mo'mal, no doubt addition of "on chest" is deviated addition and not correct and deviate with it Mo'mal and made mistake by mentioning it and even Mo'mal sometime flurry (confuse) in this addition so he said "on chest" to Ibn-e-Khuzaimah and once said "near chest" as to Abu AlShaikh in Tabqaat-ul-Muhaddithein in Isbahaan, and once never even mentioned it with Tahavi as in Sharah maani-ul-Aathaar. And addition of Mo'mal with his extreme singularity and flurriness in it not correct with existence of violation of narrators with it from Sufian and narrators from Aasim and narrators from Wa'il. Add more in it that Sufian AlThauri who is root of addition of narration of Mom'al so his (i.e. Sufian's) way is way of people of Kufa to place hands under navil. So if narration was correct then he (i.e. Sufian) never went against it. Second, Mursal of Tawoos according to AbuDawood, and he is weak for his Irsaal and for slandering of two narrators in the chain of narrators, one of them AlHaitham bin Humaid, Ali bin Mus-hir counted him weak, and second of them is Sulaiman bin Musa, talked about him AlBukhari and AlNasa'e. Third, narrated by Ahmad, said narrated Yahya bin Saeed from Sufian said narrated Sammaak from Qubaisah bin Halb from his father, so mentioned it, and it is weak, it can't be use as plea, because Qubaisah is unknown, no one narrated from him except Sammak, with addition that hadith is Ma'lool because of absence of addition "on chest". As hub (center) of hadith is Sammaak and there is differing on him, so Shobah, Zaaidah, Shareek and AbulAHwas narrated from Sammaak and none of them mentioned addition of "on chest" and among them are (narrators) who narrated it in short, so indeed Sufian AlThauri narrated it from Sammaak and differed on it also, indeed narrated Yahya AlQattan and mentioned addition as mentioned already and AbdulRazzaq narrated it and never mentioned addition. and AbdulRahmaan bin Mahdi (narrated to) to DaraQutni and never mentioned addition, and Wak'e bin AlJaraH to Ahmad and never mentioned the addition. So, it is not correct to stick with it because of unpopular Qubaisah and that is weakness of Hadith, then because of absence of word "on chest" according to other narrators from Sufian and because of absence of proof according to other narrators from Sammaak.
  8. Masha'Allah. Please attempt the rest of the homework when you are ready. Jazakullah Khairun
  9. W-Salam, Sure, here you go: Click on this link and you will get an Arabic keyboard http://www.arabic-keyboard.org/ Lets suppose that you want to type Muslim which in Arabic is spelled as: Meem Seen Laam Meem Click on these letters with your mouse You will see appear مسلم on the screen Try it and please come back with issues which you encounter. Jazakullah Khairun
  10. Asslamo Allaikum, Jazakullah Khairun for fixing the problem and please make dua and keep trying because its critical that you use the Arabic keyboard for the course.
  11. Asslamo Allaikum, Please note that this Fatwa is relevant to taking medications internally but when it comes to topical medications (ointments etc) like the commonly prescribed E45 Eczema Cream which contains Alcohol there is no difference of opinion because Synthetic Alcohol is unanimously permitted to be applied to the skin in the Hanafi Madhab.
  12. Bullet Points and numbering doesn't seem to be working...
  13. Asslamo Allaikum, This course is for those who know how to read the Arabic (or better, the Qur'aan) with vowels thus I don't believe that it is necessary at least in the beginning to need a MIC or a traiditonal classroom setting. Exercise 1: What you do need is to get used to using the Arabic keyboard and copy/pasting the text from there into forums. I would like for all to practise, write and copy the following text into your response for your thread, change the sizes and font colours so you are familiar with how to do this: الله تعالي الله تعالي محمد Then practise adding vowels as indicated: You will need to type "Meem" and then "Dumma (Paish)" and then "Ha" and then "Fatha (Zabar)" and then "Meem" and then "Shadda" and then Fatha (Zabar) and then Daal and then Sukoon مُحَمَّدْ Exercise 2: Then you need to visit the following Qur'aan site: Think of one of your favourite verses of the Qur'aan Know which Surah and Ayah it is Select the Sura / Chapter from the top left Select the "From Verse" Copy and paste the whole Ayah Highlight the whole Ayah Change Font Size to 24, make it Bold and colour BLUE Highlight the whole Ayah and select "Align Right" Tell me which Surah & Ayah it is I am choosing Ayatul-Kursi and my result looks like this: ٱللَّهُ لَآ إِلَـٰهَ إِلَّا هُوَ ٱلۡحَىُّ ٱلۡقَيُّومُ‌ۚ لَا تَأۡخُذُهُ ۥ سِنَةٌ۬ وَلَا نَوۡمٌ۬‌ۚ لَّهُ ۥ مَا فِى ٱلسَّمَـٰوَٲتِ وَمَا فِى ٱلۡأَرۡضِ‌ۗ مَن ذَا ٱلَّذِى يَشۡفَعُ عِندَهُ ۥۤ إِلَّا بِإِذۡنِهِۦ‌ۚ يَعۡلَمُ مَا بَيۡنَ أَيۡدِيهِمۡ وَمَا خَلۡفَهُمۡ‌ۖ وَلَا يُحِيطُونَ بِشَىۡءٍ۬ مِّنۡ عِلۡمِهِۦۤ إِلَّا بِمَا شَآءَ‌ۚ وَسِعَ كُرۡسِيُّهُ ٱلسَّمَـٰوَٲتِ وَٱلۡأَرۡضَ‌ۖ وَلَا يَـُٔودُهُ ۥ حِفۡظُهُمَا‌ۚ وَهُوَ ٱلۡعَلِىُّ ٱلۡعَظِيمُ This is wrong because the alignement is to the left (default) instead of to the right. ٱللَّهُ لَآ إِلَـٰهَ إِلَّا هُوَ ٱلۡحَىُّ ٱلۡقَيُّومُ‌ۚ لَا تَأۡخُذُهُ ۥ سِنَةٌ۬ وَلَا نَوۡمٌ۬‌ۚ لَّهُ ۥ مَا فِى ٱلسَّمَـٰوَٲتِ وَمَا فِى ٱلۡأَرۡضِ‌ۗ مَن ذَا ٱلَّذِى يَشۡفَعُ عِندَهُ ۥۤ إِلَّا بِإِذۡنِهِۦ‌ۚ يَعۡلَمُ مَا بَيۡنَ أَيۡدِيهِمۡ وَمَا خَلۡفَهُمۡ‌ۖ وَلَا يُحِيطُونَ بِشَىۡءٍ۬ مِّنۡ عِلۡمِهِۦۤ إِلَّا بِمَا شَآءَ‌ۚ وَسِعَ كُرۡسِيُّهُ ٱلسَّمَـٰوَٲتِ وَٱلۡأَرۡضَ‌ۖ وَلَا يَـُٔودُهُ ۥ حِفۡظُهُمَا‌ۚ وَهُوَ ٱلۡعَلِىُّ ٱلۡعَظِيمُ Further Practise: On the Darul-uloom Deoband site this is the introduction to Shaykh (Maulana) Qasim Nanotwee (RA): هو الشيخ الإمام حجة الإسلام في الهند أحد العلماء الربانيين Please type this using your Arabic Keyboard and then copy/paste it like I have in the same colours and the same way. Beginning Lesson: Here is the introductory Lesson: http://central-mosque.com/index.php/Arabic/madina-book-1-the-beginning.html
