  1. Masha'Allah, very nice answer. Unfortunately many people cannot swallow this 'bitter' pill and will attack you if you offer it to them. Allaahumma arinal haqqa haqqan wa 'rzuqnattibaa`ah, wa arinal baatila baatilan wa 'rzuqnajtinaabah.
  2. As-salaamu `alaykum I've been listening to Mufti Tariq Masood these past few weeks. Masha'Allah, great speaker and very knowledgeable. I would recommend him to anyone who can understand urdu. Mufti sahib was a student of Shaykh Ahmed Rasheed Ludhyanvi. You can find mufti sahibs bayanaats, audio clips and courses on his website muftitariqmasood.com wassalaam
  3. As-salaamu `alaykum The multitudes of issues with nikah (delays, extravagance, free-mixing) is I think one of the biggest diseases of this ummah. It actually hurts me to see articles like this and know that we are so so far away from the revival of sunnah nikahs (like the one of `Abdur-Rahman ibn `Awf). This is at least true for the Pakistani culture that I come from. May Allah give us all true understanding of the sunnah and put love in our hearts for it. Ameen.
  4. As-salaamu `alaykum A very important clarification indeed. In this day of jahaalat, where the masses study for a degree for hours on end but never bother to learn basic fiqh for their daily activities (and thereby ruin/invalidate their worship), misconceptions and misunderstandings like these need to be eradicated. A point to add: If one acquires nisaab, but later his wealth dips BELOW nisaab during the year, but at the end of the year he has wealth above nisaab, even then he must pay zakaat on all zakaatable wealth he has at the moment. The only way a zakaat year is "reset" (i.e. s
  5. wa `alaykumus-salaam I believe the phrase "four rakaats after esha salaat" refers to the 2 sunnah plus the 2 nafl immediately after, adding up to 4. Im assuming this as this is also how some `ulamaa' refer to the 2 sunnah and 2 nafl after dhur. Rather than dffierentiate, they'll just combine the two and say, ""4 rakaats after dhur". wallaahu a`lam.
  6. Maulana A.S. Desai Q. Is a child born six months after Nikah legitimate? A. The child born six months from the date of Nikah is legitimate according to the Shariah.

  8. Q: What is the minimum period of suckling? What is the maximum period of suckling? A. There is no minimum period stipulated for suckling. The maximum stipulated period for suckling is up to two years. (Raddul Muhtaar V10 P365) Moulana Yusuf Laher Checked and approved by: Mufti Siraj Desai
  9. <QUESTION> Please clarify the following hadith. A’isha (Allah be pleased with her) reported that Sahla bint Suhail came to Allah’s Apostle (may peace be upon him) and said: Messenger of Allah, I see on the face of Abu Hudhaifa (signs of disgust) on entering of Salim (who is an ally) into (our house), whereupon Allah’s Apostle (may peace be upon him) said: Suckle him. She said: How can I suckle him as he is a grown-up man? Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) smiled and said: I already know that he is a young man. Was he suckled at the breast or form a cup? <ANSWER>
  10. <QUESTION> My parents are considering adopting their nephew, since he is 5 yrs old and his mother recently passed away. I have taken care of him since he was a baby (cleansed him, changed his diapers, fed him, etc)and was wondering if I, as well as my other sisters, will have to wear hijab in front of him once he hits puberty, or would he be a Mahram to us? <ANSWER> In the name of Allah, Most Compassionate, Most Merciful, As a general principle, it is worth remembering that a Mahram is one with whom marriage is permanently unlawful. This is the reason why “Mahram”
  11. Just becareful with some of these videos. Many of them show the patients `awrah (lower back). Avoid those ones.

  13. Binaa is the option to continue your salat from where you left off if your wudhu happens to break. Its usually mentioned in the context of jama`ah for men. The main benefit of it being that if a muqtadi's wudhu happens to break, rather than missing the jama`ah and losing out on the reward, he can quickly make wudhu and rejoin the jama`ah, and any rak`ahs he missed while making wudhu can be made up as a laahiq. Rules of binaa are mentioned in Bahishti Zewar, and I've reproduced them below:
  14. Question Assalamu alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu, If a woman is performing salaatut tasbeeh at home, and whilst in salaah her wudhoo breaks, can she carry on praying her salaat from the point where her wudhu broke after making a fresh wudhu? Is binaa permissible for a woman praying salaah at home? Answer Wa'alaykum as Salam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu, It will be permissible for her to continue praying from where she stopped, bearing in mind the various laws of Binaa. However, it is better that she renews her prayer. والرجل والمرأة في حق حكم البناء سواء، هكذ
  15. Masha'Allah, good compilation. Would be great if you could include THIS excerpt from Maariful Qur'an under the post "To Deprive Women of inheritance is a great sin".
  16. There are too many scenarios to list all of them, but here are a few: 1) In a situation where a person leaves behind both parents, and (A) only male descendants (sons/grandsons) or (B) a combination of male and female descendants, both parents will inherit 1/6. If the deceased leaves behind only female descendants, its possible that the father may get more than 1/6. But this will depend on what other relatives are present. 2) Paternal grandmother and Paternal grandfather always get 1/6 each. 3) Maternal grandmother is an heir, while maternal grandfather is a non-heir. Thus, if both
  17. The mashaa'ikh of tasawwuf recommend daily muraaqabah of death. Shaykh Fusus has a vivid post on it here: http://www.sunniforum.com/forum/showthread.php?112070-Moraqaba-MissyB-and-Anyone-Else&p=965367&viewfull=1#post965367 Its very beneficial, as daily meditation and pondering upon your inevitable death will open your eyes to your own fragile reality and remove all desire to sin, as well as create an urgency inside you to please Allah. But as Acacia mentioned, there is a big difference between muraaqabah of death and suicidal thoughts. The former brings you close to Allah,
  18. The `ulamaa' say (and I've experienced this myself) that the best time to study sacred knowledge is before or after Fajr. So if you're able to do that, it would be good for you.

  20. As-salaamu `alaykum Site updates: (1) Mufti Zameelur-Rahman was very happy with the site. So happy, in fact, that he has advised his younger brother (who is also his student) to use it as a study guide. So Alhamdulillah for that. (2) I've added a PDF option for the first post here: http://inheritancelawsblog.wordpress.com/2014/04/25/the-3-main-types-of-heirs-and-relationships-between-siblings/ Members are requested to test it out and make sure the PDF downloads fine. If all works well, I will, insha'Allah, include a PDF option for all posts, and ultimately (insha'Allah) merge a

  23. Wa `alaykumus-salaam Wird means "devotion". It simply refers to an act of worship you can "devote" yourself to on a regular basis and with consistency. For example, a wird of durood, a wird of tasbeeh, a wird of Qur'an recitation, a wird of reading up on academic knowledge, a wird of nalf salaat, a wird of contemplation on death, a wird of reflection on the creation of Allah etc... As the book says, you should not restrict yourself to just one wird, rather you should do a variety of awraad everyday and stay consistent on them. Important thing is consistency. Start with a little
  24. Yeah, that seems to be what happened here. Anyway, I've posted in the books section, only thing left is for it to be approved by a moderator insha'Allah.
