Manual of Islamic Law Sunan & Nawafil Namaaz

Manual of Islamic Law – Sunan & Nawafil Namaaz

Law: If one performs his Nafil whilst sitting, he should sit like one sits in Tashahud,

But when in the condition of Qira’at the hands must be tied under the naval just as it is tied when in Qiyaam. [Durr-e-Mukhtar, Raddul Muhtar vol.1 pg.654]

Law: If one took a vow that he will perform Namaaz at certain place and he performed it at a place which is not as excellent, the Namaaz is still discharged.

For example, If one intended to perform it at Masjid-e-Haraam but rather one performed it at Masjid-e-Quds or the Masjid of one’s home (local), it is valid (discharged).

If a female took a vow that the next day she will perform a (particular) Namaaz or keep fast and on that day she began menstruating, then she should perform Qaza of these. If she made a vow that she will perform 2 Raka’ats in the condition of Haidh, then there is nothing (i.e. no Qaza).

Law: If one took a vow that one will read 2 Raka’ats today, and he did not read it today, then there is no Qaza for it, but one will have to give kaffarah (compensation). [Alamgiri vol.1 pg.115]

The Islamic teaching with regards to illness

The Islamic teaching with regards to illness

Indeed, illness is great blessing from Allah and its benefits are innumerable. Even though man feels pain due to his illness, in reality it is a means of peace and comfort. The illness is actually an excellent way of healing the spiritual illnesses. It is these spiritual illnesses that should be considered as the destructive illnesses. It is very clear that however much unaware a man is, when he is inflicted with an illnesses, diseases or with any sort pain, he starts to remember his Creator and turns to him though repentance and forgiveness.

However, the state of the great pious people is that they actually welcome wholeheartedly any sort of pain, just as they welcome any sort of peace  and comfort. Like a Persian poet once said:

“Whatever comes from the beloved, it is always for our betterment.”

However, we who spiritually weak, should at remain patient when afflicted with any illness or disease and have a firm belief that Allah shall remove us from this pain and discomfort. We should not lose the reward that was to be earned by being impatient and bewailing. Everyone knows that a calamity cannot be removed by being impatient and indeed to be deprived of the great blessings and rewards is another calamity in itself in addition to the initial one!

Whenever they become ill or a calamity befalls them, many ignorant people start to utter improper words, some which in fact takes them out of the folds of Islam. Allah forbid! They utter things such as ‘He is the Oppressor!’ Such people are those as regards whom the Quran has stated, “They are in loss in this world and the hereafter.”

Now We shall cite a few benefits of being inflicted with illnesses through the light of the Ahadith so that our readers may read them attentively and act upon them. May Allah grant us all guidance…Ameen

Hadith: Hazat Abdullah bin Mas’ud Radiallahu Anhu reported that The Messenger of Allah Sallalaahu Alahi wasallam has said, “Whatever pain is inflicted on a Muslim, whether it be in the form of an illness or something else, then Allah removes the sins from him just as the leaves fall from a tree.”[Bukhari]

Immat, its Conditions and Rule

Immat and its Conditions
Imamat here means the Salaah of a Muqtadi following the Salaah of the Imam.

Rule:  There are six conditions for a person to be an Imam:

1. To Be a Muslim
2. To be a Male.
3. To be an adult
4. To be Sane
5. To have the knowledge of the rules pertaining Qira’at
6. Not to be a Ma’zoor

Rule: It is not a condition for the Imam of the women to be a male. A female can also lead the prayers, although it is Makrooh.

Rule: It is not a condition for the Imam of the Children to be an Adult. A child can also lead the prayers of other children.

Rule: Salaah behind transgressors (who beliefs contradict the fundamentals of the Islamic faith and thus have come out of the folds of Islam such as the Rafizs, Qadiyanis) is invalid, It is also invalid behind those who do not believe in the intercession, the seeing of Allah or those who deny the occurrence of punishment in the grave or the angles writing the deeds.

Rule: Similarly, praying Salaah behind today’s Wahhabis and Deobandis isnot permissible as they have shown disrespect, in fact insulted Allah and His Prophet Sallaalhu Alahi Wasllam . Rather, they support and have faith that people who have these sorts of beliefs are Muslims! Infact, they are classed as Kafir.

Rule: To Pray behind those who possess corrupt beliefs, which do not take them out of the folds of Islam, Such as the Tafdiliyyah, is makrooh-e-Tehrimi.

Does Sweating Break Wudu?

Does Sweating Break Wudu?

Question: I would like to know if after exercise wudu is necessary for prayer or a proper bath or ghusl due to excessive sweating.
