  1. Islam is a religion which gives guidance for matters pertaining to all walks of life. Mainly the Holy Quran, Ahadith and ijtihad are the sources through which Muslims derive laws that regulate and govern both private and social life. These laws give guidance with respect to worship, prohibitions, and all contracts and obligations related to social affairs such as inheritance, marriage, divorce, conduct of war and the general administration of the state. In Islam the science of religious laws is called Fiqah and the expert in this field of law is called a faqih. Based on these faqih are derived the different schools of thought in Islam. These are as follows. · Hanafi This school of thought was headed by Imam Abu Hanifa who was born in 80H and died in 150H in Baghdad. Imam Abu Hanifa was the greatest theologian and religious lawyer of his time. His approach towards religious affairs was very consistent; he focused a lot of reasoning and avoided extremes. · Maliki Led by Imam Malik bin Anas, who lived from 93H to 179H this school of thought is more dependent on Ahadith of the Holy Prophet compiled through his companions. Imam Malik served as a judge in the city of Madinah. His decisions are compiled in the form of a book called al-Muwatta. · Shaafi Imam al-Shafi led this school of thought. He was a disciple of Imam Malik. He lived from 150H to 198H. Just like his teacher, he laid great stress on the Ahadith for the solution of any issue. He was a great philosopher and thinker. He had an unusual grip over Islamic laws and principles, hence had an exceptional understanding of judicial issues. · Hanbali This fiqah was headed by Imam Ahamd Ibn Hanbal. He lived from 164H to 241H in Baghdad. This school of thought is considered to be the most rigid and inflexible. The idea behind this school of thought is to follow the Quran and Sunnah on the basis of literal injunctions. Followers of this school of thought generally are very strict with respect to the observance of religious obligations. · Jafri This school of thought was led by Imam Jafar ibn Mohammad al-Sadiq. He lived from 83H to 148H in Madina. The collection of his teachings is called usul. All his teachings were compiled by his followers in 400 usul. They have been compiled by gathering knowledge from ahadith, Islamic philosophy, literature, ethics and Quranic sources. These are the different schools of thought in Islam that govern the Islamic way of life.

  5. It is proved that performing Umrah during Ramadan has got the most significance and virtues for those who perform and it has got a reward equivalent to Hajj. This means that performing Umrah and Hajj are two different things. Only performing Umrah in Ramadan benefits as much as performing Hajj but that does not discharge the duty of doing Hajj. Hajj for Allah has significance of its own. More Info: Umrah in Ramadan

The Sahabah asked, “Not even Jihaad?” Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) replied, “Not even Jihaad, except for the one who endangers his life and wealth (in Jihad) and does not return with anything.” More Info: Zul Hijjah

    One of the biggest concerns for parents remains were handled their kids when they take them along for Umrah. It is easier to manage the entire Umrah trip if the kids are above 5 years of age, but if they are younger it becomes difficult to deal with them. Certain factors and precautionary measures are to be taken in order to take proper care of them and avoid any sort of inconvenience during Umrah. The very first consideration is to avoid taking more than 1 child (Under 5 years) with you on Umrah. Taking more children along is not a good idea as it may create a lot of trouble for you such as taking care and keeping an eye on them will become difficult, they might wander around and get misplaced.
