  10. IMPERMISSIBLITY OF USING A DICE By Shaykh (Mufti) Abdullah Nana (HA) There are a three different terms used in the Arabic language which refer to backgammon. They are 'Nard,' 'Nardsheer,' and 'Ki'aab.' According to the dictionaries, the terms 'Nard' and 'Nardsheer' refer specifically to backgammon and not dice.

This could possible be due to the fact that dice is an essential component and a distinguishing feature of the game of

  17. THE ENORMOUS STATURE OF THE EARLIER HADITH MASTERS Question If a Hadith in Tirmidhi has been declared hasan sahih by Imam Tirmidhi (rahimahullah) but declared weak by contemporary ‘Ulama after scrutinising the chain. Which ruling would be given preference to? Answer In general, the view of the earlier Hadith masters holds more weight than the latter ones. It’s a grave mistake of several contemporaries, that they belittle and undermine the views of the earlier scholars. Be that in any field. This needs no substantiation, but to further prove this serious mistake of many in our era,

A: This is like the situation where you wish to visit a friend who has invited you. However, his dog is obstructing the path and is barking at you. Now, there is one of three methods that you may adopt in this situation: (1) To turn away. If you will turn away the dog will continue barking resulting in other dogs also barking. There is also the possibility that whilst running away you might trip and fall resulting in another disaster.

    Kid's Night Terrors

    Alhamdulillah sister... but, my son did not have many nightmares, he had night-terrors. The night-terrors went away, alhamdulillah. This is what his night-terrors looked like: He would fall asleep normal and quite easily, and be peacefully sleeping when, all of a sudden, he would sit up (in the dark) with a stiff back, pointing at something with one hand and pulling at his mouth with the other, yelling (I don't recall him crying, no tears), eyes open and full of terror... it would last a short while and then he would fall asleep again, as peaceful as before. In the morning, he would wake-u

    Kid's Night Terrors

    Waalaikummussalaam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu dear sister: Ameen to aapa's du'aa. Keep praying inshaallah. I have experience with this and I think some things you should keep in mind is that: (1) night-terrors aren't like nightmares... kids who have night-terrors don't remember anything about them and actually fall right back to sleep quite peacefully, as if nothing happened. (2) either way, don't wake her or try to shake her out of it... just gently guide her back to sleep or sit beside her... night-terrors don't last long. Regardless of what it is she experiences, some sugge
