  1. Prove God Exists.

    Assalamu Alaikum, Postulate: Everything that we can perceive and experience has been created (made/started/initiated etc). Our perceptions, senses and our intellect have been created from non-existence to existence; and existence, by definition, is not unlimited. Therefore our perceptions are limited and we have limited intellect. Postulate: The entity (god/creator/maker/etc) that has facilitated that which is created is singular. The absence of further creations by other such entities and the absence of many such entities proves the singular nature. Please take your time to contemplate the meaning of my words. To put it bluntly: creation was created but only by one. And for those who believe in chance: chance is part of our intellect and our intellect is part of creation - our idea of chance was also created. Regards, Your brother in Islam, Salam
  2. How To do Qasr And Jam'a

    Assalamu alaikum my brothers and sisters in Islam. Oh plus another query is whether we shorten the sunnah prayers or read them in full. ie do we read the four sunnah before the four fard (shortened to two) of zuhr ro do we read two sunnah instead? Many thanks, Your brother in Islam, Salam
  3. Adlts Sleeping In The Same Bed

    Not to be rude but I think my original query has been misunderstood. I seem to understand the ruling on an adult male sleeping under the same sheet with a female but my query is regarding same sex. I'll state them clearly again: 1) What is the ruling on an adult male sleeping under the same sheet with another male? 2) What is the ruling on an adult female sleeping under the same sheet with another female? 3) Are the rulings ONLY to do with "seeing the others awrah" or is it simply because it is inappropriate? Thanks
  4. Adlts Sleeping In The Same Bed

    Yeh what im asking does seem like common sense but I dont want to rely on my common sense, I want to find a authentic source. Basically I know its obvious a two adults of the opposite sex (regardless of relationship: mother/son, father/daughter, brother/sister) should not sleep in the same bed together...and some personally think this extends to two adults of the same sex, as it is simply an extension of the above, but I want to know if this is just cultural saying or actual Islamic ruling. The example is two adult brothers (or two adult sister) sharing the same bed. Thankyou
  5. Adlts Sleeping In The Same Bed

    Here is what I have found but I would like to know if the source stated is authentic or not. The Prophet sallallahu alaihe wasallam has stated, "A man should not look at the satar of another man and nor should a woman look at the satar of another woman. Also, no man should lie down with another man wrapped in a single sheet or cloth and nor should a woman lie down with another woman wrapped in a single sheet or cloth. They should sleep with separate sheets or coverlets." (Sahih Muslim: Abu Saeed Al-Khudhri radiyallahu anhu) Does anyone have any commentary on this hadith (if it is authentic) Thank you, Your brother in Islam, Salam
  6. Assalamu alaikum my dear brothers and sisters in Islam. I have heard/read of a something a long time ago and I am trying to find out if it is true and to what extent...ie I am trying to find if this "idea" is backed by a hadith or just something people say. I have heard that adults (both male and female) should not sleep in the same bed as another adult unless it is your spouse. I think the wording I read was "under the same sheet"...can anyone tell me more about this please. Regards, Your brother in Islam, Salam.
  7. Assalamu alaikum my brothers and sisters in Islam. My question is regarding Qasr. Here is a scenario: I have travelled far enough and know that I will be staying away for 7 days and hence I may be permitted to use Qasr, therefore my salah is as follows (please correct me if i am wrong): Fajr: 2 Rakah Zuhr: 2 Rakah Asr: 2 Rakah Magrib: 3 Rakah Isha: 2 Rakah (I understand the number of known days staying away (ie 4, 15, 18 days...) is a big factor in determining allowance for Qasr but this is not the debate here.) I also will be allowed to use Jam (combining prayers) so my salah becomes: Fajr: 2 Rakah Zuhr/Asr: 2+2 Rakah Magrib/Isha: 3+2 Rakah My questions: 1) For the Zuhr/Asr salah do I read two sets of 2 Rakah each with separate intentions to read Zuhr and Asr respectively, or do I read one set of 4 Rakah with one intention to read them combined? 2) If i do not intend to use Jam but I miss my 2 Rakah Zuhr prayer do I then read the 2 Rakah Zuhr using Jam with 2 Rakah Asr in the Asr time frame, or does it become Qaza? IS there any difference? I may have some more questions depending on the responses. Regards, Your brother in Islam, Salam
  8. Male Awrah

    Assalamu alaikum my dear brothers and sisters in Islam. Does the awrah of a male include the navel and the knees? I have been informed that at all times the area between the navel and the knee must be covered, however im confused whether the navel (and the knees) itself is included in the awrah. I ask because i have seen many muslim men without a top (working in the fields or swimming for example) and the navel is showing! It seems like it the the area between the navel and the knees that need covered, such a 3/4 swimming trunks that start from just below the navel, but I would like some clarification on this. I wish to go swimming soon and want to know how much need to be covered. Please advise, Your brother in Islam, Salam
  9. Assalamu alaikum my dear brothers and sisters in Islam. Is there any evidence to support the raising of hands to offer Duaa, such as after the end of salah? If there is no evidence that the Prophet (pbuh) practised this, then is there evidence that he disliked it? Regards, Your brother in Islam, Salam
  10. Assalamu alaikum my dear brothers and sisters in Islam. I have two very basic questions: 1) I have been taught that whistling is not the proper conduct of a muslim, especially at night. Is this an Islamic concept? 2) I have been taught that one should not play with ones shadow, ie make shapes out from them. Is this an Islamic concept? Are there any Islamic basis to these or are they just cultural sayings? Regards, Your brother in Islam, Salam
  11. The Times Of Salaah

    Assalamu alaikum my dear brother and sisters in Islam I would like to draw your attention to my following topic, (you are not allowed to post links yet)"you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_you are not allowed to post links yetgawaher(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/index.php?showtopic=37876"]Salah Times[/url] and like to pose my final query to you. (The post has a final query that was unanswered) "Also is there anything wrong in reading Asr just before the time ends and then after a few moments reading Magrib." - from what you have posted I can now understand why this is incorrect as it is forbidden to offer Salaah when the sun is setting. However are my other assumptions correct?: Regards, Your brother in Islam, Salam
  12. Salah Times

    Assalamu alaikum my dear brothers and sisters in Islam. Thank you for the link shiningstar. Zuhr, Asr, Magrib and Isha all seem to share a start/end time with their neighbour...ie the END of Zuhr is the START of Asr. I would just like to confirm that there is nothing wrong in reading Zuhr just before the time ends and then straight away (well after a few moments) reading Asr, as the end time for Zuhr is also the same time for the beginning of Asr. (Hope this isnt confusing!) Also there is nothing wrong in reading Asr just before the time ends and then after a few moments reading Magrib. Also there is nothing wrong in reading Magrib just before the time ends and then after a few moments reading Isha. Fajr however does have a specific time where you can not read any fard before or after its time Regards, Your brother in Islam, Salam
  13. Salah Times

    Assalamu alaikum my dear brothers and sisters in Islam. I have a very basic question which I am still a little confused on! For each of the five prayers during the day: exactly FROM which point TO which point in the day can i read them...ie exactly when can i read Fajr from till when can i not read it...I am confused because i am not sure when a missed salah is to be read as kazaa. Please tell me i terms of sun-times as well as in real time (ie as an example the times they apply to now) Regards, Your brother in Islam, Salam
  14. Assalamu Alaikum my brothers and sisters in Islam. Just to clarify: Im not actually married, just wanted to know a few things for later on... Can someone please still clarify these two points with evidence aswell. Can I lead someone else while reading Nafl? Can I recite out loud while leading in Nafl? (recite surah Fatihah, other surahs...) Many thanks, Your brother in Islam, Salam
  15. Assalamu Alaikum my brothers and sisters in Islam. I totally understand that you can offer Nafl prayer at anytime and as much as you want...so I know there is nothing stopping me reading some Nafl on the night of my marriage. Right, my question is regarding whether there is special reward for doing this (such as IF it is indicated by hadith) or if it is simply Nafl like any other Nafl? Also (this is important): Can I lead someone else while reading Nafl? Can I recite out loud while leading in Nafl? (recite surah Fatihah, other surahs...) Thanks, Your brother in Islam, Salam
