Jazakumallahu Khairan to the honorable brothers who host and maintain this website as well as all those visitors who listen and benefit from the lectures and to our noble scholars who conveyed to us the beautiful teachings of this esteemed religion. We pray that Allah accept from us all. Ameen!

Question:
Salam. Can you suggest me the best source of islamic jurisprudence book that gives me the strong basic in this science?? Thank a lot !

Answer:

Walaikum salam wrt wb beloved brother,

All praises are due to Allah. You have asked about something great, which is seeking knowledge. This is one of the greatest endeavors a person can undertake. The Prophet sallahallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam said, “Whoever treads a path is search of knowledge, Allah will make his path to Paradise easy for him.”

Islamic Jurisprudence should be learned from its specialists, that is the Fuqahaa, the scholars. If possible, one can travel to the Islamic Lands, such as Makkah and Madina, and learn from the Ulema there. If that is not possible, one can look for the scholars who have specialized in Fiqh and learn from them. Here on ImamFaisal.com , we are conveying the knowledge from the Prophet’s Masjid taught by Sh. Atiyya Salim and others. I would recommend you listen to all of the lectures on this website, and share it with your families and others. This would be a good starting point.

A good reference work for Fiqh is Bulugh al Maram, and the various commentaries on it, such as Subul as Salaam, by Imam San’aani. I have translated some of the commentary in the form of Word documents next to each lecture. Try to find a reputable scholar or shaikh and be a student to him, and listen to his guidance and suggestions, and before all, make your intention sincerely for sake of Allah. Have adab, humbleness, and love and respect for the ulema. Beware of the ignorant who slander the ulema or accuse them of making mistakes, and argue in religious matters, this is poison for the seeker of ‘ilm.

May Allah reward you and increase you much in ‘ilm.

Allah knows best.

Question:

I was wondering what do I have to do if I did an extra rakah or missed one because I didn’t complete a sujood? If you could explain it to me as simply as possible so that I understand I would be so grateful and may Allah reward you to your kindness.

Answer:

All praise is due to Allah.

It is very nice to hear from you.

If a person adds an extra rakah forgetfully, they should make two
prostrations after saying salam once on the right, then make their
regular salaams.

That is, they sit down and finish their tashaahud, then say salam once
on the right, then make two prostrations of forgetfulness, then do
the salam again on the right and left.

If a person missed a sajdah then they must repeat the entire rakaah,
and then do two prostrations of forgetfulness before giving salam.
That is they finish their tashaahud, then make two sajdahs of
forgetfulness, then give salam once on the right and left.

In other words, if you add something to the prayer, you should say
salam first, then make the sajdahs, then make the salaam on the right
and left.

If you subtract something from the prayer, like leaving out a sajdah,
you repeat the rakah then make two sajdahs of forgetfulness before
giving the salams. In this case, you only give salams once.

There are some differences of opinion amongst the madhahab, but this is the view that seems to be supported by the evidence.

Allah knows best.

Question: As salam alaykum wa raghmatulahi wa barakatuh, I look for information about the subject of to change the colour of hair. There is hadeeth that forbiddens us to dark our hair to black, there is other that say that we will not imitate to the people kufr…in all hadeeths they name the use of natural products like henna, zafran…. so…and always the ahadeeths speak about the old people, so my question is can a young woman change the color of her hair with quimic products, these doesnt, go agains these ahadeeths and about the rule of to doesnt change the creation of Allah (Subhanna wa ta’ala)?

Answer:

All praise be to Allah.

Changing the color of the hair is from the permissable means of
beautification. There are no texts that prohibit changing hair color,
and it is not an act of worship, therefore the default ruling is that
of permissiblity. Coloring hair is not specific to the people of
kufr, rather it is something general, and was practiced in the time of
the Prophet may Allah’s blessings and peace be upon him.

Some of the ulema are of the view that black should be avoided, due to
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam advising one of the Sahabah to
avoid using black. However, any color other than pure black is
generally permissable.

As for using natural verses chemical dyeing products, the ruling would
be that of general permissibility unless some harm would result from
the use of chemical products, in which case the level of prohibition
would be in accordance to the amount of harm caused.

It is not correct to state that dyeing hair is changing the creation of Allah,
since we must go by the texts, and there is no analogy in this issue. What
would be the ruling on cutting the hair then, is it not also changing Allah’s Creation?
Rather we must stick to the texts. This is what the ulema have ruled for many centuries
and what we have learned from them.

It is essential that all Muslims stick together in the obedience of Allah, and hold
on the the Sunnah of the pious predecessors.

And Allah knows best.

Question:

The protecting (writing) angels do they go in the bathroom?

Answer:

Verily the praises are to Allah, and may Allah’s peace and blessings be
upon prophet Muhammed.

All the actions that people do are written in advance in the lauhul mahfoodh,
and the deeds done in the bathroom would not be unaccounted for. In a hadith from
prophet Muhammed, may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him, he had mentioned that
things that are offensive in odor to humans, like onions, are also offensive to the
angels. Even though they may not be physically present, they are well aware of all
the actions. Allah created this universe without any flaws, and certainly there
would be no mistakes on the record of peoples’ deeds on the day of judgement, though Allah would forgive much.

And Allah knows. Shaikh Sajid

Question:

How does one remove the effect of magic?

Answer:

Verily the praises are to Allah, and may Allah’s peace and blessings be
upon prophet Muhammed.

Magic has an adverse affect on one’s comprehension. One should
study the beneficial knowledge from our noble ulema to counteract
this evil affect. One should try their utmost to learn this knowledge,
and Allah willing it will remove the evil effect. One should try to
spend much time in the environments of ilm.

And Allah knows. Shaikh Sajid

Question:

salam sheik
my question is are repented not to ever commit fornication again but i
still have pleasure on the memories is that am not sincere in my
repentance?

Answer:

Walaikum salam wa rahmatu Allahi wa BarakatuHu,
May Allah reward you tremendously for your question,
and I pray that Allah benefit you much with the knowledge.

Praises are to Allah, and peace be upon prophet Muhammed.

The ulema say that there are three conditions for the repentance to be
accepted:

1. Stop it.
2. Regret doing it.
3. Have a very strong resolve to never repeat it again in the future.

Once these conditions are met, Allah erases the sin from the account.
Allah also forgives sins for seeking the path to knowledge, and devoting
yourself to the ulema. Afterwards, the actions that one does afterwards
are considered new actions, and the old sin does not return to the account.

As advice, you can study the ilm in order to replace these memories of
doing something haram with the beneficial knowledge. Also you
should try your best to avoid these thoughts so that it does not lead
you to disobeying Allah. By attending the environment of ilm, it will
keep the whispers of shaitaan away. Also you can seek a way for marriage,
and raise a family devoted to the beneficial knowledge.

For masturbation, the ulema have stated that it is forbidden. Sexual postures
involving the anus are forbidden. Permanent forms of birth control are also
forbidden.

Allah forgives for being devout eager to learn the beneficial knowledge,
and removing the shawah (desires) of the nafs (soul).

And Allah knows.

Question:

Can qurbani meat be used for food as a fundraiser for the maintenance of a masjid?

Answer:

Praises are to Allah, and peace be upon prophet Muhammed.

For the Udhiya, that is the animal sacirificed on eid-ul-adha,
it is recommended to give 1/3 to poor, 1/3 to friends and family,
and 1/3 for oneself. This however is recommended, but not strictly
obligatory, and the meat could be divided in a different way.

It is not appropriate for anyone to dissuade the effort to
raise funds for maintaining the masajid, that call people to
the ilm and bringing them to the way of Allah. Hopefully it
would be a good way to raise more money for the masajid,
a really good cause. This, keeping in mind, not going away
from the sunnah (traditions) of prophet Muhammed as explained to
us by our noble ulema.

If one does give meat for this purpose, thay are not doing
something forbidden. Hopefully this would be a means of
bringing more people to the masajid, and closer to the teachings
of prophet Muhammed, may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him.

And Allah knows.

Jinns

No comments

Question:

I have a question and hoepfully you can help me, I have a question that is being bothering me for sometimes. Please help me with answering it; Can Jinn take the form of humans? If yes how do you know if you are dealing with a human or Djinn? Please do provide me some dalil.

Answer:

Praises are to Allah, and peace be upon prophet Muhammed.

Jinns (shaitans) are only able to affect people when they go
away from the ilm and remembrance of Allah, especially if they
do so for a long time. If one learns the ilm and remembers Allah,
the jinns immediately retreat. One should do much dhikr,
recite Aayah al-Kursee, Soorah al-Ikhlaas, Soorah al-Falaq and
Soorah an-Naas, and seek refuge in Allaah. One should study the
ilm, to have strong firm knowledge so that the shaitan is not able
to fool them. One should also be devout and eager to learn the ilm,
not listen to their whispers to keep people away and make them averse
and angry to the beneficial knowledge. The antidote to these whispers
of the jinns is the ilm.

Jinns can be “exorcised” from people that they possess by imams
knowledgable in the procedure. See the article :


How to perform an exorcism, removing the jinn from
a person that becomes possessed.

One of the proofs the ulema use is that ayat in surah Baqarah:

{ ٱلَّذِينَ يَأۡڪُلُونَ ٱلرِّبَوٰاْ لَا يَقُومُونَ إِلَّا كَمَا يَقُومُ ٱلَّذِى يَتَخَبَّطُهُ ٱلشَّيۡطَـٰنُ مِنَ ٱلۡمَسِّ‌ۚ }

“Those that eat interest do not stand except like one that the
shaitan has touched (possessed).” Surah Baqarah ayat 275.

And Allah knows

Question:
Assalam Imam sahib,
I was just curious to know if it was permissible to purchase discounted items on non-muslim holidays like Thanksgiving and Christmas ? We see people flocking supermarkets and staying up all night long for discounts…it doesn’t seem right.
And does the ruling change if we intended to purchase the item before the holidays began and even if it is permissible, is it better from the point of view of Taqwa to avoid this ?

Answer:

Alhamdulillah (All Praises are due to Allah).

Generally speaking it would not be forbidden to simply purchase discounted items on the holidays of non-Muslims, as long as these discounts do not come in the form of gifts related to the holiday. Shaikh Ibn Taymiyya permitted the receiving of gifts from non-Muslims on their holidays if they were general non-specific gifts. If one were to give you a Christmas Tree, or Christmas cookies, for example, it would not be permissable to accept them.

At the same time, one must not support the innovations or matter of misguidance that these holidays represent by partaking in their rituals.

As for the holiday shopping, the Ulema recommend we spend our time seeking the ‘ilm and attending the durus to gain beneficial knowledge. A noble goal in life is to attain knowledge and not simply to obey one’s lusts and desires and become consumers.

Another concern is that Muslims may miss out on their Salah or they may not be able to perform them properly or in Jama’ah when they are at these stores. Also, one is exposed to holiday music as well as religious displays (trees, candles, Santa claus etc).

One final point, is that there is often mixing and women dressed in inappropriate clothing at shopping malls, and this is a harmful distraction and danger to the faith of a believer.

In summary, although making a simple purchase at these stores is allowed, it is not recommended to spend one’s time hanging around in those places, and become affected by their environment.

And Allah knows best.
