  1. Actions and approval of Shaykh (Maulana) Saleem Dhorat Saheb (HA) added to the discussion.
  2. Assignment 1: Muslim Degeneration & Its only Remedy We scan these books and then convert the images to text. Despite using the best of technologies errors often creep up for example a scanner has difficulty telling a I (small case i) from L (small case l) i.e Allah often looks like Aiiah to a scanner. Please read the book below and inform us of the errors in the thread which follows: http://www.central-mosque.com/index.php/Hadeeth/muslim-degeneration-its-only-remedy.html If you are not sure please report the problem because we can compare it to the original book and verify .
  3. Proof reading of the translation done by Maulana Yusuf Shabbir (HA), ready for distribution.
  4. Please don't copy/paste the article as it is being proof read and checked by others such as the son of Shaykh (Mufti) Shabbir Ahmed (HA) of Darul-uloom Bury. Simply read and point out any errors.
  5. Conclusions: 18 degrees should be adopted for Subh Sadiq (true dawn)i.e. commencement of fasting and Faj'r Salah. When 18 degrees is not present, Aqrabul Ayyam (nearest day), Aqrabul Bilaad (nearest city) or Nisf ul Lail (half of night) should be adopted. Using Sab’al Layl or 1/7th of the night is a manifest error.

  6. Asslamo Allaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh, وَمِنۡ ءَايَـٰتِهِ ٱلَّيۡلُ وَٱلنَّهَارُ وَٱلشَّمۡسُ وَٱلۡقَمَرُ‌ۚ لَا تَسۡجُدُواْ لِلشَّمۡسِ وَلَا لِلۡقَمَرِ وَٱسۡجُدُواْ لِلَّهِ ٱلَّذِى خَلَقَهُنَّ إِن ڪُنتُمۡ إِيَّاهُ تَعۡبُدُونَ [41:37] Among His signs are the night and the day, and the sun and the moon.

  7. Summarised Mas'ail from Shaykh (Maulana) Marghoob Ahmed Lajpuri (HA) were updated a few days ago, Sorry I didn't see this but it discusses women.
  8. Research of Darul-uloom Bury about reciting loudly in Salah added to the article: http://www.central-mosque.com/index.php/Civil/eclipses.html
  9. Sorry Khala, Didn't know the rules BUT that is a problem because article and blogs get updated and reproducing them on a different site is not advised because then the copies get out of synch. In this example I just learned that he was also a Hafiz of Qur'aan which I didn't know when I posted the link. Do you see what I am saying?

  11. A to Z of Eclipses in Islam Background: This Friday (20th of March 2015) will see a Total Solar Eclipse in Svalbard (Norway) and the Faroe Islands, and a Partial Solar Eclipse in Europe, northern and eastern Asia and northern and western Africa. The eclipse starts at 07:41 UTC and ends at 11:50 UTC with the best time to view it around 08:30 UTC. We (as) Muslims are meant to view any phenomenon no matter how grand and spectacular from the eyes of Qur’aan and Sunnah. Media is constantly emphasizing the spectacular views to be displayed this week but we want to emphasize the CREATOR of the spectacle and the key lessons HE wants us to take from eclipses. Focus on the Creator & not the created! The sun and the moon are fantastic, magnificent creations which dazzle us from the time we first lift our gaze to the heavens. We are in awe of their majesty and gaze at them all our lives in astonishment and amazement. But the questions we should be asking are who created them and how magnificent HE must be? هُوَ ٱلَّذِى جَعَلَ ٱلشَّمۡسَ ضِيَآءً۬ وَٱلۡقَمَرَ نُورً۬ا وَقَدَّرَهُ ۥ مَنَازِلَ لِتَعۡلَمُواْ عَدَدَ ٱلسِّنِينَ وَٱلۡحِسَابَ‌ۚ مَا خَلَقَ ٱللَّهُ ذَٲلِكَ إِلَّا بِٱلۡحَقِّ‌ۚ يُفَصِّلُ ٱلۡأَيَـٰتِ لِقَوۡمٍ۬ يَعۡلَمُونَ [10:5] He is the One who has made the sun a glow, and the moon a light, and determined for it stages, so that you may learn the number of the years, and the calculation (of time). Allah has not created all this but for a rightful purpose. He elaborates the signs for a people who understand. The magnificence, majesty, grandeur actually belongs to the CREATOR! If His creation dazzles us and leaves us amazed all our lives than isn’t he truly who should be admired and worshipped? وَمِنۡ ءَايَـٰتِهِ ٱلَّيۡلُ وَٱلنَّهَارُ وَٱلشَّمۡسُ وَٱلۡقَمَرُ‌ۚ لَا تَسۡجُدُواْ لِلشَّمۡسِ وَلَا لِلۡقَمَرِ وَٱسۡجُدُواْ لِلَّهِ ٱلَّذِى خَلَقَهُنَّ إِن ڪُنتُمۡ إِيَّاهُ تَعۡبُدُونَ [41:37] Among His signs are the night and the day, and the sun and the moon. Do not prostrate yourselves to the sun, or to the moon. And prostrate yourselves to Allah who has created them, if it is Him whom you worship. Continue Reading central-mosque
  12. Virgin Mary: Muslims or Christians? Muslim women cover their head and dress modestly. Muslim women live a chaste live with sexual activity confined to marriage. Next time, take a look around at the imagery in your Church and think about who follows in the footsteps of Virgin Mary? Muslim women or Christian women? You may want to look into Islam & becoming Muslim. Read full article here http://www.central-mosque.com/index.php/Islam/virgin-mary.html
  13. No reason for anyone to email/PM: Please read the thread and report errors: http://www.muftisays.com/forums/27-sharing-portal/9932-volunteer-your-time-for-an-islamic-cause.html Next Book is: http://www.central-mosque.com/index.php/Hadeeth/muslim-degeneration-its-only-remedy.html Jzk Khala UmmiTalib: We are not teaching/learning/commenting on Ahadeeth Just fixing typos when these books were scanned I graduate next year (Insha'Allah) from the Darul-uloom so then we can get to the technical bits :P Jazakallahu Khayran

  18. http://www.central-mosque.com/index.php/Practises/weak-ahadeeth-a-fadhail-virtues.html In the present day climate it is often opined that the usage of Weak (Da’ef) Ahadeeth is forbidden in Islam and there is a genuine move amongst certain circles to purge the Hadeeth collection of Weak (Da’ef) narrations. Although the opinions and Fatawa of certain Scholars (of the past and present) can be presented in support of this position (of discouragement) towards the usage of Weak (Da’ef) Ahadeeth, nevertheless there exists an overwhelming majority of Islamic Scholars (from Salaf & Khalaf) who not only permitted its usage but their publications contained these (i.e. Weak Narrations) in abundance.
  19. Caution: This article is not to provide justification for our Sisters to get married without the permission and consent of their Wali (guardian). Rather, we advise Sisters who have Wali (guardian) unreasonably preventing them from fulfilling half of their religion to refer the matter to Islamic Scholars or Islamic Shariah councils and let a Mufti or a Scholar from a Shariah council and let them consider the situation and act as Wali (if necessary) and give them in marriage. The purpose of this article is to demonstrate academically that some leeway in the Hanafi School of thought on the matter of marriage without wali (consent) is not without evidence. Due to the sensitivity of the subject, we advise (again) that although leeway does exist our Sisters should opt to consult Islamic Scholars on the matter and let them rule on their individual circumstances and act as their Wali. Please proceed to read the evidence of the Hanafi School of thought once you have understood the position and rationale behind this article. Following are some contacts for our Sisters to consult Islamic Scholars and have the Ulama rule on their individual circumstances and assist (if necessary); at the very least local Imam (or local Mosque) should be consulted. Nikah should be publicised and officially endorsed, please also read out detailed article on marriages.

  20. Introduction Verbs & Methodology: In this chapter we introduce the student to Arabic verbs, Insha’Allah. These lessons are primarily based on the book of Shaykh (Dr) Husain Abdul Sattar (HA) and then gradually advance to higher levels. Insha’Allah it is intended that this single page will teach the student which is usually taught to an average Darul-uloom student as far as the science of Arabic verb conjugation is concerned. In the traditional Darul-uloom system (in India) an average student was expected to recite each table 5 times (in one minute) without breaking his breath! You MUST MASTER these tables through sheer practise and pick up speed to the point where your mind is on “Auto-Pilot” and conjugating at the speed of lightening; there is NO short-cut! The modern students (of today) severely lack the skills to recite and decipher classical text on the fly which inhibits their levels of understanding. The classical system of reciting, reciting and reciting these tables until you can do so on “Auto-Pilot” still works. Shaykh Abul-Hasan Ali Nadwi (RA) who is considered as one of the Masters of Arabic language of our times used to say that the student should not move on UNLESS & UNTIL he can recite a table of a given verb 5 times (in one minute) without breaking his breath! Test yourself against the method given by one of the Masters of the Arabic language. http://www.central-mosque.com/index.php/Arabic/gateway-to-arabic-verbs.html
  21. More imortant is to please inform of errors or improvments or stuff which has been missed. Please feel free to say what needs to be added... While doing research I found that many Salafi sites translate Mujahireen as Muhajireen in the Hadeeth about disclosing sins which is pretty hilarious :P The best translation (used) is from Shaykh Faraz Rabbani (HA)'s Canadian site. Google that Hadeeth and enjoy the DIY translation (butchering of the Hadeeth) :) المجاهرين as Muhajireen...Hmm
