  1. Times for Ishraq and Chasht Prayers By Mufti Ebrahim Desai POSTED: 18 SHAWWAL 1423, 23 DECEMBER 2002 Q.) What's the starting, ending and Mustahab time for Ishraaq and Chaast Prayers? [Muhammad Faizan] A.) In a lengthy Hadith, Sayyidna Ali, Radi-Allahu anhu, is reported to have said, 'In the morning when the sun rises to the height of that the same as it is at the time of Asr, the Prophet used to perform 2 Rakaats (Salatul Ishraaq). When the sun rose in the east to the height where it is in the west at the time of Dhuhr Salat, he performed 4 Rakaats (Salat al-Dhuhaa, Chast).' (Shamaail Tirmidhi, Hadith No.271) According to the Fuqahaa (jurists) and Muhadditheen (scholars of Hadith), the time for Salat al-Dhuhaa is from the morning after the Makrooh time passes till Zawaal. But according to the Sufis this period covers the time for two separate Salats, one is Ishraaq and the other is Dhuhaa. The Sufis substantiate their view from the above mentioned Hadith of Sayyidna Ali, Radi-Allahu anhu, and other narrations. (Khasaail Nabawiy pg.292) Ishraaq Salat Rasulullah is reported to have said that Allah Ta'ala says, 'O son of Aadam, perform 4 Rakaats of Salat (Ishraaq) in the early part of the day. I shall help you in accomplishing all your responsibilities during the rest of the day.' (Mishkaat pg.116) In another narration of Tirmidhi, Rasulullah is reported to have said, 'He who performs Fajr Salat with Jamaat and remains seated in the same place while engaging in Dhikr until after sunrise and thereafter performs 2 Rakaats Nafil Salat, (Ishraaq), he will obtain the Thawaab of one Hajj and one Umrah.' (Tirmidhi). From the above Ahaadith, we learn that the number of Rakaats to be performed are 2 or 4 Rakaats, and the Mustahabb method of performing it is to remain seated in your place of Salat after Fajr and engage in Dhikr, etc. until sunrise. Then, approximately, 10-15 minutes after sunrise perform 2-4 Rakaats. 'If a person gets occupied in some worldly activity after the Fajr Salat, and after sunrise he offers Ishraaq Salat, this will also be permissible although the reward will be less.' (Bahishti Zewar part2 pg.30) Dhuhaa Salat Sayyidna Anas, Radi-Allahu anhu, reports that Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) said, 'Whoever performs 12 Rakaats of Salat al-Dhuhaa, Allah Ta' ala will build for him a castle of gold in Jannah.' (Mishkaat pg.116) It is reported that Sayyidna Aaisha (Radhiallaahu Anha) used to perform 8 Rakaats of Salat al-Dhuhaa. She said that even if her parents arose from the grave, she would not leave Salat al-Dhuhaa to go and meet them. (Ibid). Rasulullah is reported to have said, 'Whoever offers 2 Rakaats of Salat al-Dhuhaa, all his sins will be forgiven even though they are as much as the foam of the sea.' (Ibid) 'Salat al-Dhuhaa consists of 2 - 12 Rakaats and it is preferable to perform 8 Rakaats.' (Raddul Mukhtaar vol.1 pg.505) The Mustahabb (preferred) time of performing Salat al-Dhuhaa is after 1/4 of the day has passed. This is deduced from a Hadith of Muslim. (Halabi; Sharah Kabeer pg.390). From many Ahaadith, we understand that Salat al-Dhuhaa should be performed after the sun has risen quiet high. Because the Fuqahaa and Muhadditheen are of the opinion that the commencement of the time of Salat al-Dhuhaa is the same as that of Ishraaq (i.e. immediately after sunrise), the Ulama have stated that 'if due to lack of time, one performs the Salat of Ishraaq and Dhuhaa together at one time, that too will be correct.'

  2. Question: السلام علیکم Are women allowed to wear watches when going out or does it come under the category of zeenat? Answer: Mufti Ismail Moosa: Wassalam, If its concealed under the sleeve or glove, it is fine. If it not concealed, it must be a basic watch. If it is elegant and expensive, it will be classified as Zeenah. And Allah knows best

The Russian doctor says: "Gentlemen, we took half a heart from a man, put it in another's chest, and in 2 weeks he is looking for a job." The American doctor laughs: "You are all behind us.

  9. Ok, one question. If bleeding starts for instance at 6:00 pm then we will count days from that time, right? From 6 pm to 6 pm one day? And then in the days column we will write exact amount of time for example 5 days and 4 hours?
  10. Encouraging Youth to Reform Question: Assalaamu ‘alaikum Respected ‘Ulama I teach in a madrasah and so I meet and interact with many young girls from different backgrounds. I have noticed that although they may be involved in bad habits and ways, they are still quite receptive. I have hope that if I speak to them and give them encouragement, they will be inspired to change their ways for the better. How should I address them? How can I give them hope in the mercy of Allah Ta'ala and encourage them to make taubah? Jazakallah Answer: Bismihi Ta‘ala Wa ‘alaikumus salaam wa rahmatullahi wa barkaatuh Respected Sister in Islam May Allah Ta‘ala accept your efforts and sacrifices to educate the youth and to bring them closer to Deen. With regard to the topic of taubah, you should put forward to them the aayaat of the Quraan Majeed and the ahaadeeth which highlight the great mercy of Allah Ta‘ala and His happiness to forgive His servants. One such aayat is: قُلْ يَا عِبَادِيَ الَّذِينَ أَسْرَفُوا عَلَىٰ أَنفُسِهِمْ لَا تَقْنَطُوا مِن رَّحْمَةِ اللَّـهِ ۚ إِنَّ اللَّـهَ يَغْفِرُ الذُّنُوبَ جَمِيعًا ۚ إِنَّهُ هُوَ الْغَفُورُ الرَّحِيمُ O my servants who have transgressed against their souls! Do not despair of the mercy of Allah, for Allah forgives all sins. He is Most Forgiving, Most Merciful. (Surah Zumar v. 53) Similarly, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) mentioned, “The person who sincerely repents from a sin (and reforms his life) is like a person who has not committed the sin.” (Ibnu Maajah #4250) In other words, if a person has genuine remorse in his heart, sincerely repents and resolves to never return to sins again, then in a mere moment, a lifetime of sins will be erased. You should also mention some of the incidents of those who made sincere taubah and how their lives were transformed for the better. Among the personalities in the Ummah whose examples you may present are people such as ‘Abdullah bin Mubaarak (rahimahullah), Maalik bin Dinaar (rahimahullah) and Bishr Haafi (rahimahullah), etc. The booklet Rujoo’ilallah of Moulana Yunus Patel (rahimahullah) will also be of great help to you. Insha-Allah you will benefit from it and will be able to help others as well. May Allah Ta‘ala assist you in this extremely noble and important task.

  12. Abdullah ibn ‘Umar رضي الله عنهTruly, we were the beginning of this nation. There would be men, amongst the best of the companions of the Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وسلم, who only had with them one surah or so from the Qur’an, but the Qur’an was heavy upon them and they were given the sustenance of acting according to it. Truly, the end of this nation will have the Qur’an upon them until even the child and the non-Arab recites it, but they will not act according to it.(The Character of the Bearers and People of the Qur’an, page#40) Taken from Here

  17. Being More Concerned of One’s Reformation than the Reformation of Others Hazrat Moulana Ashraf Ali Thanwi (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) once mentioned: There is a great need for each person to be concerned about his own reformation and to correct his actions. Nowadays, we find that people have fallen into the sickness of worrying about other people’s weaknesses while they are unconcerned about their own reformation. This can be compared to a person who is more concerned about looking after the shoes of others while his own shoes and luggage get stolen due to him being unconcerned about them. How foolish is the action of such a person! (Malfoozaat Hakeemul Ummat 23/56) Source: Ihyaauddeen.co.za
