  1. The history of the messengers: Moses The killing of the sons of Mosesnation The children of Israel carefully considered what had been said among themselves, generation after another, about Prophet Abraham (pbuh): that from his descendants there would emerge a boy who would cause the fall of the king of Egypt. This news was so well-known among the children of Israel that it reached the Pharaoh, after being mentioned to him by some of his princes. As a result and a precautionary measure, Pharaoh ordered that the sons of the children of Israel be killed to prevent such a boy from ever existing. Under the rule of Pharaoh, the children of Israel lived in oppression and injustice. {Verily, Fir’aun (Pharaoh) exalted himself in the land and made its people sects, weakening (oppressing) a group (i.e. Children of Israel) among them, killing their sons, and letting their females live. Verily, he was of the Mufsidûn (i.e. those who commit great sins and crimes, oppressors, tyrants, etc.).{ (Al-Qasas:4) Allah wanted to bless the besieged children of Israel. 5. And We wished to do a favour to those who were weak (and oppressed) in the land, and to make them rulers and to make them the inheritors, 6. And to establish them in the land, and We let Fir’aun (Pharaoh) and Hâmân and their hosts receive from them that which they feared.(Al-Qasas:5-6) The story of his birth and upbringing Pharaoh was extremely careful in ensuring that Moses would not be born, to the extent that he ordered his minions and midwives to circulate and ask pregnant women about their due dates; so the moment a male was born, he was immediately slaughtered by his butchers. However Allah wanted to show Pharaoh, Haman and their soldiers that which they feared, and when the mother of Moses gave birth to him, she knew she had to dispose of him or he would be slaughtered. {And We inspired the mother of Mûsa (Moses), (saying): “Suckle him [Mûsa (Moses)], but when you fear for him, then cast him into the river and fear not, nor grieve. Verily! We shall bring him back to you, and shall make him one of (Our) Messengers.”}(Al-Qasas:7) https://www.path-2-happiness.com/en/the-path-to-happiness-messengers-and-prophets-the-history-of-the-messengers-moses
  2. Characteristics of the Islamic legislation A divine source The source of the Islamic religion is the Great Creator, Allah, who created man and the universe and all that it contains. Having a divine source affords it numerous advantages, including one of them being that Allah is the Creator and the Sustainer, so He Alone owns the right to legislate. Moreover, prophets and their followers referred legislation back to Allah alone, and rejected all other legislations. Allah states what the seal of the prophets and messengers (pbuh) used to say about Allah’s legislation: {Say (O Muhammad [sal-Allâhu ‘alayhi wa sallam]): “I am not a new thing among the Messengers (of Allâh, i.e. I am not the first Messenger) nor do I know what will be done with me or with you. I only follow that which is revealed to me, and I am but a plain warner.”}(Al-Ahqâf:9) The Islamic Shari’ah applies to all of Allah’s creation, and that includes the Messenger of Allah, despite his high status and position of honor with Allah, since he too follows the laws that Allah revealed to him, and he was not an innovator. He followed Allah’s way and did nothing to contradict it. The fact that Allah is The Creator means that He knows best those who He created. He says: {Should not He Who has created know? And He is the Most Kind and Courteous (to His slaves), the Well-Acquainted (with everything).}(al-Mulk:14) He knows the natural disposition of His slaves, what reforms and what corrupts them, and what benefits and what harms them. None but the maker knows best about what he made. Allah says: {Say, “Do you know better or does Allâh (know better ... that they all were Muslims)?”}(al-Baqarah:140) https://www.path-2-happiness.com/en/the-path-to-happiness-the-remaining-message-characteristics-of-the-islamic-legislation
  3. What is happiness? What, then, is this happiness, and how does one achieve happiness?! Happiness is the constant feeling of elation, tranquility, generosity and joy. This feeling of contentment comes as a result of always having three states: one’s self being in a good state, one’s life being good, and expecting that one’s final abode will be good. With regards to these three states, man starts by asking questions about the self. These questions grow larger as he grows older, and he does not find happiness until he answers the questions which come to his mind: • Who owns this universe and controls all its affairs? • Who created me and created this universe around me? • Who am I? Where do I come from? Why was I created? Where will my destiny take me? https://www.path-2-happiness.com/en/all-people-are-looking-for-happiness-so-where-is-the-path
  4. 1- Emission of Semen It is a thick white liquid which exits in spurts due to sexual stimulation and is followed by a loss of strength. Its scent resembles that of a rotten egg. The need for a ghusl is stated in Allah’s saying: “If you are in a state of janaba (ritual impurity), purify yourself (bathe your whole body).”(Al-Ma’idah:6) And the Prophet’s ﷺ saying: “When you ejaculate, take a ghusl.” [ narrated by Abu Dawud.] Points for Discussion 1- If a person has a wet dream yet doesn’t ejaculate, he does not have to make ghusl. 2- If he wakes up and doesn’t remember having a wet dream, yet he finds semen on himself, clothes, bed, etc. he must take a ghusl. The Prophet ﷺ said, “Water is only from water.” [ narrated by Muslim.] In other words the emission of semen - willfully or unwillfully - necessitates a ghusl. 3- If he feels semen moving in his penis, yet it does not exit, he does not have to make a ghusl. 4- If it exits due to some sort of sickness and not from sexual stimulation, then he does not have to take a ghusl. 5- If his state necessitated a ghusl, and he took a ghusl, but then semen exited immediately after the ghusl, he is not obliged to take another ghusl. He only has to make wudu’. 6- When a person wakes up from sleep and notices wetness on his clothes whose cause he can’t remember, then the following three conditions are possible: a) He is sure that the wetness is semen. Then, it is obligatory on him to take a bath, whether he remembers having a wet dream or not. b) He is sure it is not semen. In this case there is no need to take a bath. The ruling thus will be that of urine (i.e. wudu’). c) He doubts whether it is semen or not, he must then examine the situation and recall what took place. If it occurs to him that it is semen, then it is semen. However, if it occurs to him that it was something else, then he considers it to be something else. But if nothing occurs to him, then it is compulsory (on him) to take a bath so that he can avoid any error. 7-If he sees semen on himself, but cannot remember when it was produced, it is compulsory to take a bath and repeat the Salah (prayer) from the last time he slept. 2. Sexual Intercourse It is the meeting of the male and the female sexual organs. This is by the insertion of the head of the male’s penis into the female’s vagina. This is sexual intercourse even if ejaculation doesn’t occur. The Prophet ﷺ said: “When the circumcised penetrates the circumcised, bathing is compulsory.” [ narrated by At-Tirmidhi.] 3. When a non-believer becomes a Muslim This is because “the Prophet ﷺ ordered Qais Ibn ‘Asim t to take a bath when he became a muslim.” [ narrated by Abu Dawud.] 4. At The End of a Menstrual Cycle or Post-natal Bleeding This is in accordance with the hadeeth related by A’ishah (may Allah be pleased him), when the Prophet ﷺ told Fatimah bint Abi Hubaysh: “When menstruation starts (you should) stop praying, and when it leaves, take a (purificatory) bath, then start praying again.” [ agreed upon.] It’s the consensus of the scholars of Islam that post-natal bleeding is like menstruation. 5. Death This is according to the statement of the Prophet ﷺ when he told those preparing Zaynab (his daughter) for burial: “Wash her three times, five times or more if you think (it is necessary).” [ agreed upon.]
  5. The Pillars of Hajj

    The Pillars of Hajj 1- Ihram: The Prophet ﷺ said: “Deeds are according to intentions and every person will be rewarded according to his intention. Therefore, whosoever has emigrated for the sake of Allah and His Messenger, then his emigration was for Allah and His Messenger. And whosoever emigrated for the sake of a worldly gain, or a woman “whom he desires” to marry, then his emigration is for the sake of that which “moved him” to emigrate.” [ Source: Bukhari.] 2- The Sa’y between as-Safa and al-Marwa: From the Prophet’s statement ﷺ “Perform Sa’y (between them) for indeed Allah has decreed that you perform Sa’y (between them).” [ Source: Ahmad.] 3- Waqfat ‘Arafah (the standing on Arafah) because the Prophet ﷺ said: “Hajj is ‘Arafah.” 4- Tawaaful Ifaadah: Allah said: “…and circumambulate the Ancient House.” (al-Hajj: 29) https://www.islamkingdom.com/en/the-pillars-of-hajj-its-obligatory-aspects-and-supererogatory-acts
  6. A woman’s Mahram

    A middle-aged to elderly woman from Sheba, known for her piety, wants to perform Hajj, but she does not have a Mahram (spouse or permanently unmarriageable relative). There is a wealthy, pious man in the town, who wants to perform Hajj with some of his female Mahrams. Can this woman perform Hajj with that kind man and his female relatives, as she will stay in the company of the women and the man will only watch over, or is she exempted from Hajj due to the lack of a Mahram to accompany her, although she is financially able to go? Please give us a Fatwa on this, as there is a disagreement over this issue among some of our brothers. May Allah bless you. the answer: https://www.islamkingdom.com/en/a-woman’s-mahram
  7. The Rulings of Wudu’

    Al-wudu’ is either obligatory or recommended. a- There are three things for which al-wudu is obligatory. 1- As-Salah (Prayers) Allah (exalted be He) said: “O you who believe, when you intend to offer As-Salah (prayers), wash your faces and your hands up to the elbows, rub your heads, and wash your feet up to (and including) the ankles.” (Al-Ma’idan:6). 2- Circumambulation of Ka’bah. This is because the Prophet ﷺ said to a menstruating woman: “Do not perform Tawaf until you have taken a purificatory bath.” [ narrated by Al-Bukhari.] 3- Touching the Noble Qur’an: Allah the most Exalted says: “None touch it (The Noble Qur’an) except the purified”(Waqiah:79) source: https://www.al-feqh.com/en/wudu-ablution
  8. Things that aren’t Correct to do

    1. Delaying a ghusl until the time of a prayer is about to leave. 2. For a female not to pray an obligatory prayer after her menstrual cycle stops. For example, her cylcle stopped before the period of zhur was over and the time ramaining for that prayer was enough to pray one raka’a of prayer. In this case it is obligatory on her to take a bath and pray zhur. The Prophet ﷺ said: “He who performs a raka’a of Subh prayer before the sun rises, has met (the time for) Salatul Subh. And he who performs a raka’a of Asr prayer before sunset, has met (the time for) Salatul ‘Asr.” [ agreed upon], source: https://www.al-feqh.com/en/al-ghusl
  9. Q-A man said that those who place their hands over their chests after rising from Ruku` (bowing) are committing an act of Bid`ah (innovation in religion). He tells people to let their hands down after rising from Ruku`. Is this view right or wrong? We hope that you could explain this to us with substantiated evidence. May Allah reward you best! A: It is authentically reported from the Prophet (peace be upon him) that he used to place his right hand on the left one after Takbirat-ul-Ihram (saying: "Allahu Akbar [Allah is the Greatest]" upon starting Prayer) and after rising from Ruku` (bowing). Also it is authentically reported that he (peace be upon him) said: Pray as you have seen me praying. Therefore, placing the right hand on the left one upon one's chest is neither a Bid`ah nor an error. In fact, it is Sunnah (action following the teachings of the Prophet).May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions. SOURCE: https://www.al-feqh.com/en/is-it-sunnah-to-place-the-right
  10. Does Man need religion?

    Einstein Physicist Strongest results “Faith is the strongest and noblest motive for scientific research.” Man cannot, under any circumstances, live without religion. Just as man is social by nature and cannot live alone and be isolated from society, he is also innately devout and cannot live properly without religion. Religiousness is a natural instinct in man. The clearest proof of this is that man flees to Allah Almighty when facing difficulties and hard times. Allah says: }And when they embark on a ship, they invoke Allâh, making their Faith pure for Him only, but when He brings them safely to land, behold, they give a share of their worship to others{(Al-’Ankabût: 65) Dale Carnegie American writer The religious and the sick “I can remember the days when people talked about the conflict between science and religion, but no more. The newest of all sciences – psychiatry - is teaching what religion teaches. Why? Because psychiatrists realize that prayer and a strong religious faith will banish the worries, anxieties, strains and fears that cause more than half of all our ills, as Dr. A. A. Brill said: ‘Anyone who is truly religious does not develop a neurosis.’ “ Just like a person who manufactures a machine knows best about how it works and about its maintenance, the Creator likewise knows best about His creation and their needs: }Should not He Who has created know? And He is the Most Kind and Courteous (to His slaves) All-Aware (of everything).{(Al-Mulk:14) Due to the fact that the Creator is Compassionate All-forgiving and All-Generous, He prescribed for people religion, so that their souls would flourish and their lives would be set right. Allah says: }O you who believe! Answer Allâh (by obeying Him) and (His) Messenger when he (pbuh) calls you to that which will give you life.{(Al-Anfâl:24) This is why even those who go against their natural instinct and deny Allah, know within their souls that they are liars and are ungrateful. Allah says: }And they belied them (those Ayât) wrongfully and arrogantly, though their ownselves were convinced thereof [i.e. those (Ayât) are from Allâh, and Mûsa (Moses) is the Messenger of Allâh in truth, but they disliked to obey Mûsa (Moses), and hated to believe in his Message of Monotheism]. So see what was the end of the Mufsidûn (disbelievers, disobedient to Allâh, evil-doers, liars.).{(An-Naml:14) Dale Carnegie American Writer Be deep “The Philosopher, Francis Beacon, was right when he said: ‘It is true that a little philosophy inclines man’s mind to atheism; but a deep study of philosophy brings man’s mind to religion.’” This is clearly seen during difficulties and hard times. Allah says: }40. Say (O Muhammad pbuh): “Tell me if Allâh’s Torment comes upon you, or the Hour comes upon you, would you then call upon anyone other than Allâh? (Reply) if you are truthful!” 41. Nay! To Him Alone you call, and, if He will, He would remove that (distress) for which you call upon Him, and you forget at that time whatever partners you joined with Him (in worship)!{(Al-An’âm:40-41) He also says: }And when some hurt touches man, he cries to his Lord (Allâh Alone), turning to Him in repentance, but when He bestows a favour upon him from Himself, he forgets that for which he cried for before, and he sets up rivals to Allâh, in order to mislead others from His Path. Say: “Take pleasure in your disbelief for a while: surely, you are (one) of the dwellers of the Fire!{(Az-Zumar:8) For that reason, all humans have been created with a natural instinct placed inside them by Allah, which is the desire to want to worship a god in whose hands all power lies, Who does whatever He wishes and ordains what He wishes.Allah says: }And if Allâh touches you with harm, none can remove it but He, and if He touches you with good, then He is Able to do all things.{(Al-An’âm:17) He also says: }Whatever of mercy (i.e. of good) Allâh may grant to mankind, none can withhold it, and whatever He may withhold, none can grant it thereafter.{(Fâtir:2) How can the power of knowledge and the power of the will make man happy? Dr. Douglas R. Archer, Mayor of Regina Truth is crystal clear “My Ph.D. thesis dealt with education and nation-building, and I discovered that the basic pillars of Islam provide a great foundation and a valuable base for rebuilding the nation socially, economically and spiritually.” Man has two powers: the power of knowledge, and that of will; and the more effort he exerts to achieve them, the closer he becomes to reaching the goal he desires. Such is the case with happiness. source: https://www.path-2-happiness.com/en
  11. The Ruling of Voluntary Charity

    Voluntary charity is recommended at all times, especially when needed, and we have been encouraged to give charity in the book of Allah and the traditions of His Messenger ﷺ. For example: - Allah’s statement: “Who is he that will lend to Allah a goodly loan so that He may multiply it to him many times?” (al- Baqarah: 245) - On the authority of Abu Hurairah (may Allah be pleased with him) who said: The Messenger of Allah ﷺ said: “Whoever spends in charity the equivalent of a date from pure earnings- and Allah accepts only that which is pure- Allah will accept it with his right hand and nurture it for its owner as any of you nurtures his foal –and a foal is the offspring of a horse – until it becomes like a mountain.” [ Agreed Upon] - The Prophet ﷺ counted the person who gives alms in secret to be among the seven that Allah will cover with His shade on the day when there will be no shade except His shade: “...and a man that gives alms and makes this secret to the extent that his left hand knows not what his right has spent.” - On the authority of Ka’b ibn ‘Ujrah (may Allah be pleased with him), the Prophet ﷺ said: “...and alms extinguishes bad deeds just as water extinguishes fire.” [ Source: At-Tirmidhi] source: https://www.al-feqh.com/en/voluntary-charity-alms
  12. A man concluded a marriage contract with a woman and then divorced her before consummating the marriage, is it permissible for him to marry her daughter or mother? It is permissible for someone who contracted a marriage with a woman and then divorced her before consummating the marriage to marry her daughter. However, it is not permissible to marry the mother due to just having contracted the marriage with her daughter. Allah (Exalted be He), when mentioning the women that a man is forbidden to marry, says: ...your wives’ mothers May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions. source: https://www.al-feqh.com/en
  13. Happiness is to live with a satisfied soul; for discontent and misery disturbs one’s life, soul and feelings. Satisfaction, on the other hand, is the gateway to happiness, tranquility, joy, and contentment. Contentment encompasses calmness and tranquility in the heart towards the choices Allah makes for man. This tranquility and peace of mind makes everything that happens in life better for man, and also gives him happiness and contentment. His soul, therefore, does not aspire except to its Lord, and does not mourn over the loss of anything in the life of this world. This motivates the slave to work diligently and pray to his Lord, and then he is pleased with what Allah destines for him in order to live a happy life. https://www.path-2-happiness.com/en
  14. The Prophet ﷺ said: “My nation will come forth on the day of judgment like ‘Ghurrah Muhajjaleen’ (horses with white forelocks and white feet)[ Al-Ghurru: is the white patch on the forehead of the horse. Muhajjaleen: are horses with white feet. At-Tahjeel: White patches on their limbs. This refers to the light on the Day of Judgment that will be on the parts of the body that used to be washed during al-wudu’.] as a result of making Al-wudu’. So any of you (who is) capable of lengthening his ghurrah (places of light) should do so.” [ agreed upon.] source: https://www.al-feqh.com/en/wudu-ablution
