  1. Bismillaahir-Rahmaanir-Raheem As-salaamu `alaykum wa Rahmaatullaahi wa Barakaatuhu The Book of Assistance By Imam Abdallah ibn Alawi al Haddad
  2. Insha'Allah, will post a book later on tonight. In the mean time, could you explain to me why it says "Dawah Team" under my name. Dont remember signing up for that...
  3. Wa `alaykumus-salaam Bismillahir-rahmaanir-raheem. Bahishti Zewar: Page 178
  4. My dad is an NYC cab driver and he supported his 4 kids + wife just fine. Alhamdulillah. By the way, the fatwa is excellent, masha'Allah. Really good explanation. JazaakAllah for sharing.
  5. No need to apologize. Insha'Allah, might post a book tomorrow. Getting late here. JazaakAllah for your help.
  6. JazaakAllah. Where the button should be it actually says "You cannot start a new topic". This button is not clickable. I am, however, able to reply to a topic as I see a textbox when I click on a thread.
  7. As-salaamu `alaykum wa rahmatullaahi wa barakaatuhu I am not able to start a new topic in the Islamic Books forum, neither in the main page nor in the 4 sub-categories. Is this category restricted to the Mods and Admin only?
  8. Im sorry, I don't have any notes to share. I went through this series a long time ago, and did not really think about taking notes. Despite that, I do remember the concepts and discussions quite clearly. Just as a bit of overview, here are some of the major topics covered: Uncreatedness of the Qur'an Speech of Allah (ex: How did Allah talk to Musa? What is the "original" form of the Qur'an? etc..) Allah doing an illogical action (ex: Can Allah create another Allah? Can Allah make make himself die? etc..) Deviancy of the Khawaarij Deviancy of the Mu'tazilites Deviancy of the Murji`ah D
  9. “You think it to be small, whereas in the Sight of Allah it is grave.” (Surah Noor, Aayat 15) This Aayat condemns thinking of a particular sin to be trivial. The Aayat was revealed in connection with the Ifk episode in which the Munaafiqeen and some innocent Muslims caught in the gossip slandered Hazrat Aishah (Radhiyallahu anha). They are warned over thinking of it to be light. Now we should ponder over whether thinking of only that sin to be light, as the revelation suggests, or thinking of any major sin to be light is condemned as evil. Reflection reveals that the reproach is not co
  10. QUESTION Is it permissible for a man to marry his wife's stepmother? Man A is married to Woman B, whose father has four wives, one of whom (Woman C) is 3 years older than Woman B. Woman B's father (i.e. Woman C's husband) dies, and Man A marries Woman B's stepmother, i.e. Woman C. Is this permissible? ANSWER In the name of Allah, Most Compassionate, Most Merciful, The nature of Shariah is such that it intends to eradicate anything that may lead to disputes and the breaking of ties. In many injunctions of Shariah, we see that the main cause behind the prohibition of a certain act is the pos
  11. Question: As-salaamu `alaykum Im having difficulty understanding a mas'alah. In Bahishti zewar, on page 405 of the 2005 English translation, it states, (mas'alah #11) "If a woman and her step-daughter marry a person at the same time, the nikah will be valid." Kindly explain why such a nikah would be valid. From what I've learned (as a muqallid of the Hanafi madhab), the `ulama say that you cannot marry two women such that if one of them were a male, they would not be able to marry each other. This is why you cannot marry a womans aunt and niece, because if one of them were a male, the
  12. Letter from an Irish Mother to her Son Dear Son, Just a few lines to let you know I'm still alive. I'm writing this letter slowly because I know you can't read fast. We are all doing very well. You won't recognise the house when you get home - we have moved. Your dad read in the newspaper that most accidents happen within 20 miles from your home, so we moved. I won't be able to send you the address because the last Irish family that lived here took the house numbers when they moved so that they wouldn't have to change their address. This place is really nice. It even has a washin
  13. Central Park, New York A man is taking a walk in Central park in New York. Suddenly he sees a little girl being attacked by a pit bull dog . He runs over and starts fighting with the dog. He succeeds in killing the dog and saving the girl’s life. A policeman who was watching the scene walks over and says: “You are a hero, tomorrow you can read it in all the newspapers: “Brave New Yorker saves the life of little girl” The man says: – “But I am not a New Yorker!” “Oh ,then it will say in newspapers in the morning: ‘Brave American saves life of little girl’” – the policeman answers. “
  14. Reliance of the Traveler - Shafi'i Fiqh Kitaab A CLASSIC MANUAL OF ISLAMIC SACRED LAW BY AHMAD IBN NAQIB AL-MISRI (Died 1368 AD) Translated by Shaykh Nuh Ha Mim Keller
  15. Would just like to point out that the one who wears hijab and the one who doesn't are not in the same category. The latter is more sinful because she is neglecting a fardh, while the former is sinful (to a lesser degree) because she is neglecting the wujoob of niqaab.
  16. I've posted some more resources and lectures here in THIS thread.
  17. Difference of the Imams by Shaykh al-Hadith Muhammad Zakariyya Kandhelvi (rahmatullahi `alayh) Major topics covered: Ikhtilaaf between the 4 Madhabs The various reasons for how these ikhtilaaf arose Various examples of ahadith which lead to ikhtilaaf Inevitability of Ikhtilaaf and how they are mercy to the ummah Basic principles of hadith Basic principles of fiqh Approach of the Hanafi madhab
  18. By the way, only the posts in the home page are from myself. The rest of the tabs are excerpts from Kitaabul Meeraath.
  19. Ameen. Yes, I've tried to make it as simple as possible so I've included examples for every single rule and law covered. However, you have to build up to it. If certain rules aren't understood before hand, calculating shares is not possible. The whole point is that it be accessible to laymen who wish to at least learn the basics, while at the same time those who are interested and motivated enough can learn more in-depth. Not many English resources on inheritance law online, so I decided to start my own. Unfortunately thats true. Many people have neglected these laws, which Is why
  20. Shama'il al-Tirmidhi - Taught by Mufti `Abdur-Rahman ibn Yusuf I absolutely cannot describe to you how much I loved this series. Alhamdulillah, Allah gave me the taufeeq to listen to every single dars start to finish. It took me a few months, but alhamdulillah, every second of it was beautiful. Highly recommended!
  21. As-salaamu `alaykum wa Rahmatullaahi wa Barakaatuhu A series of Audio duroos on `Aqeedah Tahawiyyah, taught by Mufti `Abdur-Rahman ibn Yusuf: http://www.zamzamacademy.com/view/audios/aqidah-tahawiyah/ The full Aqeedah Tahawiyyah text can be found HERE I dont know why they never finished the series, but the duroos that are put up are spectacular and definitely beneficial. It does get a bit technical and heavy, so may not be everyone's cup of tea. Wassalaam.
  22. JazaakAllah. Its the same one already posted in post #21. Still in the works, many more topics to cover. As of now, I am getting it reviewed by various `ulamaa. So far Mufti Ismaa'il Moosa has looked at it thoroughly and gave it the "seal of approval" as well as Maulana Muntasir Zaman and Darul Uloom NY. Currently, Mufti Zameel-ur-Rahman is giving it a look. Alhamdulillah, no mistakes have been found so far. Insha'Allah, my intention is to get as many `ulamaa to review it as possible and then post their names on the site to make it "official". The more the merrier. Requesting du'aas.
  23. 1. If a woman renounces Islam, she will be given a respite of three days in which all her doubts regarding Islam may be cleared. If she returns to Islam within the three days, well and good. If not, she will be imprisoned forever. If she repents, she will be freed. 2. Once a person utters the words of kufr, imaan will no longer remain with him. All the pious deeds and forms of ibaadah which he may have fulfilled while he was a Muslim will be rendered null and void. His marriage will be null and void. If he had performed the fard hajj, it will also be rendered null and void. If he repents and
