  3. Non-obligatory Voluntary Fasting These include all forms of optional fasts that are performed in order to be closer to Allah, the Exalted. Supererogatory fasts comprise great virtues and magnificent rewards. In a Qudsi hadeeth reported by Abu Hurayrah, the Prophet ﷺ said: “Indeed every righteous deed by the son of Adam is rewarded from ten to seven hundred times, but Allah Almighty says: ‘Fasting is an exception. This is because it is for Me and I shall reward (the one who fasts) accordingly.’” [ Agreed upon.] Days on which Voluntary Fasting is Recommended The bright days in every month The bright days These are the 13th, 14th and 15th days of every Islamic month. They are referred to as bright days because their nights are brightened by the light of the moon. It is authenticated that Abd al-Malik ibn al-Minhal conveyed from his father that the Prophet ﷺ ordered them to fast the three “bright” days. He said, “It is [equivalent] to fasting the entire month.” [ Source: Ibn Habban.] - Fasting on Monday and Thursday of every week Abu Hurayrah reported that the Prophet ﷺ said: “Deeds are reported to Allah Almighty on every Monday and Thursday; and I like that my deeds are reported while I am fasting.” [ Source: Tirmidhi.] - Fasting on alternative days The best form of supererogatory fast is the fast of Prophet Dawud (peace be upon him). He used to fast a day and take a break the next day. Abdullah ibn ‘Amr reported the Prophet ﷺ to have said: “The best form of fasting is the fasting of Dawud (peace be upon him); he used to fast a day and take a break on the next (day).” [ Source: An-Nasaii.] source: https://www.al-feqh.com/en/voluntary-fasting-and-non-obligatory-supererogatory-fasting
  4. 1- Conditions of zakat : The Nisab is required to be more than what is necessary for the basic needs of man e.g. feeding, clothing, shelter etc. This is because Zakat has been ordained as a support for the poor. It is therefore important that the payer of Zakat is not in need himself. 2- The Nisab must completely belong to a particular individual. Zakah is not paid from money or property that does not belong to a specific person. For example, money that was contributed towards building a mosque, an endowment set aside for the well-being of a community, or properties in the treasuries of welfare or philantropic organizations. source: https://www.al-feqh.com/en/rules-of-zakat-in-islam-and-its-conditions#ix6

  7. It was narrated that a man performed wudu’ but left a patch around his feet unwashed. When the Prophet ﷺ saw this, he said: “Return and perfect your wudu’.” Then he (the man) returned and thereafter prayed. [ narrated by Muslim.] Imperfections in Wudu’ Include: 1- Not washing the ankles. 2- Not washing the elbows as a result of tight cloths. 3- Not washing the part between the ears and beard. 4- Not washing the left palm together with the back of the left hand. 5- Performing wudu’ while having grease on the parts to be washed which is enough to stop the water from reaching the skin. 6- A female performing wudu’ when she has some form of beautification on her hands that prevents water from touching the skin. 7- Not rubbing between the fingers and the toes when water doesn’t go smoothly between them. 8- Wiping the neck. This is not part of wudu’ but when the need arises it should be done before or after wudu’. 9- Reading unislamic supplications like those specific to washing each limb, or like saying “zamzam!” to someone who has performed wudu’. source: https://www.al-feqh.com/en/wudu-ablution
  8. (Zakat on gold and silver) 1- Nisab of gold is twenty Dinars or 85grams. A dinar of gold equals four grams and a quarter, the Nisab of gold in grams will then be 4.25 x 20= 85grams of pure gold. 2- The Nisab of silver is two hundred dirham or 595 grams. A dirham of silver equals 2.975 grams, the Nisab of silver in grams will then be 2.975 x 200 = 595 grams of pure silver. 3- The Nisab of paper currency is calculated on the basis of the Nisab of gold or silver when the collection of Zakah is due. When the money has reached the Nisab of either gold or silver, Zakah then becomes obligatory. For example, if a gram of gold equals $30, Zakah becomes obligatory if one has 30 x 85 = 2 550. source: https://www.al-feqh.com/en/zakat-on-gold-and-silver
  9. Anyone who mocks a Muslim man or woman for adhering to the Shari‘ah (Islamic law) is a Kafir (disbeliever), whether the object of ridicule is Islamic Hijab or any other matter of Islam. ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Umar (may Allah be pleased with them both) narrated: During the Campaign of Tabuk a man said in an assembly, ‘I have never seen anyone like these Qur’an reciters of ours. They have the biggest bellies, the most lying tongues and they are the most cowardly when encountering the enemy.’ Another man said, ‘You are lying, and you are a hypocrite. I will most certainly tell the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) [what you have said].’ The news was reported to the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him), then Ayahs of the Qur’an were revealed (concerning this incident). ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Umar said, ‘I saw him (that man) hanging onto the saddle of the she-camel of the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him), stumbling over the stones while saying, ‘O Messenger of Allah, we were just jesting and playing.’ The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) was reciting: "Was it at Allâh (عز وجل), and His Ayât (proofs, evidence, verses, lessons, signs, revelations) and His Messenger (صلى الله عليه وسلم) that you were mocking?" Make no excuse; you disbelieved after you had believed. If We pardon some of you, We will punish others amongst you because they were Mujrimûn (disbelievers, polytheists, sinners, criminals.). Thus, ridiculing the believers is equated with ridiculing Allah, His Signs and His Messenger.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

  16. Types Of Had-Y

    Had-y is The animals driven to the Haram (at Makkah) for sacrifice, whether as a means of getting closer to Allah, or since it is obligatory as the haajj is performing either Hajj tamattu’ or Qiran, or for the reason of Ihsar (obstruction or prevention from completing Hajj or ‘Umrah or both of them when they are performed together.) Types of Had-y 1- Had-y for Tamattu’ and al-Qiran It is compulsory for the pilgrim observing Tamattu’ or Qiran Hajj to offer a Had-y, and this is either a sheep, one-seventh of a camel, or one-seventh of a cow. If he cannot afford it, then he fasts for ten days: three in Hajj and seven when he returns home. This obligation is in fact for those that are non-residents of Makkah. If he is a resident then neither a Had-y nor fasting is compulsory on him. Allah said: ”… and whosoever performs the ‘Umrah in the month of Hajj, before performing the Hajj, he must slaughter a Had-y such as he can afford, but if he cannot afford it, he should fast three days during the Hajj and seven days after his return, making ten days in all. This is for him whose family is not present at the Haram Masjid (i.e. non-resident of Makkah)” (al-Baqarah: 196). 2- Had-yut-Tatawwu’: Voluntary Hady This is offered by the pilgrim on Hajju-Ifrad (Hajj alone) or ‘Umrah voluntarily; or what is offered by a pilgrim on Hajjut-Tamattu’ and Hajjul-Qiran in addition to the obligatory one; or that which one who is not performing the pilgrimage sends to Makkah as an offering to be slaughtered as a means of getting closer to Allah. The Prophet ﷺ sacrificed a hundred badana (camels for sacrifice.) [ Source: Al-Bukhari.] Voluntary Had-y and that of Tamattu’ and al-Qiran: It is permissible for its owner to eat from it; rather it is recommended to eat of the voluntary Had-y as was practiced by the Prophet ﷺ, as he ﷺ ordered a piece from every camel (which he had slaughtered) to be cooked, and he drank from its broth.” [ Source: At-Tirmidhi.] 3- Had-yul-Ihsaar (Had-y due to Hindrance) Al-Ihsar is an obstruction or prevention from completing Hajj or ‘Umrah, or both of them when they are performed together. Whosoever assumes Ihram for Hajj or ‘Umrah and was prevented by an enemy from entering the House (Ka’bah), or was afflicted by a condition that made him unable to enter the House, he must slaughter the offering in the place he was hindered, and then become disengaged from his Ihram. Allah says: “But if you are prevented (from completing them), sacrifice a Had-y animal.” (al-Baqarah: 196). A Had-y of hindrance is a sheep, one-seventh of a camel or one-seventh of a cow. source: islamkingdom
  17. 1- Bathing and perfuming before assuming Ihram. 2- Wearing a wrapper (garment) and cover cloth which are white. 3- Saying the Talbiyah, starting when assuming Ihram and continuing until stoning Jamaratul aqabah. 4- The arrival circumambulation for those performing Ifrad or Hajj al-Qiraan. 5- Raml in the first three rounds during the arrival circumambulation. 6- Observing al-Idh’tiba’ during the circumambulation of arrival, and this is done by passing the cover cloth under the right armpit and placing the ends of the cloth on one’s left shoulder. 7- Spending the eve of Arafah at Mina. 8- Kissing the Black Stone. 9- Praying Maghrib and Isha’ prayers merged and advanced at Muzdalifah. 10- Staying at Al-Mash’ar Al-Haram (the revered landmark) in Muzdalifa from Fajr until sunrise, if possible, otherwise it is acceptable to stay at any place in Muzdalifah. Source: islamkingdom
  18. 1- The haajj leaves ‘Arafah after sunset, heading towards Muzdalifah, and it is a sunnah for the haajj to leave calmly and with dignity so as not to offend people, and to make Talbiyah to Allah Almighty.2- When the haajj reaches Muzdalifah, he should begin by performing Maghrib and ‘Isha salahs together, shortening ‘Isha salah, before taking his luggage and belongings from the passenger vehicle.3- The haajj must stay overnight in Muzdalifah this night, and perform Fajr salah early. He must not start moving from Muzdalifah before Fajr except if he has an excuse; such as being a weak woman or young boy, or those accompanying them, or those who serve the hojjaj. It is permissible for these to leave Muzdalifah at the end of the night when the moon sets.4- After the hajj performs Fajr it is desirable that he comes to the Mish’ar Haraam (sacred site or monument) and, facing qiblah, make much dhikr (remembrance) of Allah, Takbeer and supplications, raising his hands up in a sincere manner, beseeching Allah. The haajj should continue to do this until the sun shines, and anywhere he stops to do that in Muzdalifah is acceptable, for the saying of the Prophet (may the peace and blessing of Allah be upon him): “…and I stopped here and anywhere in (the area of) Jama’ it is permissible to stop.” [ Source: Muslim.] What is meant by Jama’ is Muzdalifah.5- When a haajj leaves Muzdalifah, he is advised to pick up seven pebbles to throw at the jamaraat of the first day, only, while the rest of the days he takes their pepples from Mina. It is permissible, however, to pick up pebbles from anywhere.source: islamkingdom
  19. Fruits Of Al-Ikhlas

    1-Acceptance of deeds: It is a very important fruit of Ikhlass, since Ikhlass is a precondition for the acceptance of deeds. The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: "Certainly Allah the Exalted only accepts those deeds done with sincerity and (performed) solely to earn His pleasure" (Narrated by an-Nasa"i). 2-Victory and dominance: The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: “Verily, Allah grants victory to this nation because of the weak people in it; by their invocation, prayer and sincerity” (Narrated by an-Nasa"i). 3-Hearts become cured from moral diseases: These diseases are envy, malice, spite and treachery. In the farewell piligrimage sermon, the Prophet (peace be upon him) said: "The heart of a believer possessing these three qualities can never be overpowered by malice or enmity; the believer who performs all actions with complete sincerity (i.e. solely for the pleasure of Allah the Exalted in accordance to the manner that has been prescribed by the Prophet), showing obedience to the leaders of Islam and fulfilling their rights, and remaining steadfast (and upholding the religion) with the Muslim Ummah (nation). Such people’s supplications encompass the entire Ummah” (Narrated by at-Tirmidhi). Ibnu "Omar said: "If I am sure that Allah accepts even one sajjdah (prostration) of my salah and even one dirham of my sadaqa (charity), there would not be a visitor more beloved to me in this world than death. Do you know from whom Allah accepts deeds?" "Indeed, Allah only accepts from the righteous (who fear Him)" (Al-Mâ"idah: 27). know more in islamkingdom
  20. Allah Is Al-Hay , Al-Qayoom

    Allah is Al-Hay (the Ever-Living), Al-Qayoom (the Self-Subsisting, the Sustainer of All)... "Allah - there is no deity except Him - the Ever-Living, the Sustainer of existence" (Âl-"Imrân: 2). Allah is Al-Hay (the Ever-Living), Al-Qayoom (the Self-Subsisting, the Sustainer of All) "Allah - there is no deity except Him - the Ever-Living, the Sustainer of existence" (Âl-"Imrân: 2). "Al-Hayy" (the Ever-Living) He has perfect life; He needs no one, and everyone and everything is in need of Him... and everything and everyone is perishable except Him. "Al-Hay, Al-Qayoom; (the Ever-Living One), (the Self-Subsisting, the Sustainer of All)” He is the Ever-Living and Independent Being, He is the Self-Subsisting, the Sustainer of All, managing people"s sustenance and all of their affairs. Al-Qayoom (the Self-Subsisting, the Sustainer of All) He (mighty and majestic is He) exists by Himself, for He is Independent from all of His creatures. Al-Qayoom (the Self-Subsisting, the Sustainer of All) He is the Maintainer of every soul, and knows what it has earned. He records all His slaves’ actions, the situations they may be in, their utterances, and their good and bad deeds, and He will repay them for all of these on the Last Day. Al-Hay (the Ever- Living) includes all the essential attributes of Allah Himself, and Al-Qayoom (the Self-Subsisting, the Sustainer of All) includes all the attributes of His actions (as for Allah to be All-Hearing, All-Knowledgeable etc., He has to be Al-Hay (the Ever-Living). And for Allah to give life and death, and to provide to Whom He wants etc. He has to be Al-Qayoom (the Self-Subsisting, the Sustain of All).)

  21. Pillars Of ‘Umrah

    1- Ihram: Due to the Prophet’s statement ﷺ: “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: The Prophet ﷺ said: “Perform Sa’y (between them); indeed Allah has decreed that you perform Sa’y (between them).” [ Source: Ahmad.] 3- Tawaaf: as Allah, the Most High, said, “…and circumambulate the Ancient House.” source: islamkingdom
  22. 1- Knowing other brothers, loving each other for the sake of Allah and strengthening ties of love; without which, perfect faith would not have been easy to achieve. This is because, there is no path to faith and paradise except by loving for the sake of Allah. 2- Freedom from hypocrisy and the hell fire. This is for someone who meets the initiating Takbeer of every Salat for forty consecutive days. Anas , reported the Messenger of Allah ﷺ as saying: “Whosoever observes Salat for Allah for forty days in congregation, catching the first Takbeer, has gained two freedoms, both of which are written for him: freedom from hell and freedom from hypocrisy.” [ Source: Al-Bukhari.] 3- Facilitating the reunion of Muslims and bringing their hearts together in goodness and righteousness. 4- Solidarity among the Muslims and helping one another in issues affecting them. 5- Demonstrating the religious rites and its strength. 6- Unifying the hearts of the Muslims, as in the same row of Salat there is gathered the White, Black, Arabs, non-Arabs, old, young, rich and the poor, side by side, in a single Masjid, behind one imam, at the same time, towards the same direction and with the same intention. 7- Infuriating the enemies of Allah. This is because the Muslims will not cease to be powerful and invulnerable as long as they uphold the observation of congregational Salat in the Masjid. 8- Eradication of misdeeds, and rising in ranks. It was reported on the authority of Abu Hurairah t, who reported that the Messenger of ﷺ said: “Should I direct you to that by which Allah eradicates sins and raises the levels?” They replied: “Yes, Oh Messenger of Allah.” Then the Prophet said: “Performing ablution when it is disliked, taking many steps to the Masjids, and waiting for Salat one after the other. That is striving in the cause of Allah.” [ Source: Muslim.] 9- Observing Salat in congregation is better than observing it alone by twenty-seven degrees. On the authority of Abdullah ibn Umar t,, the Messenger of Allah ﷺ said: “Congregational Salah is better than that observed alone by twenty-seven degrees.” [ Source: Al-Bukhari.] - Congregational Prayer (Salat ) at Home. It is not advised for any individual or congregation to observe Salat at home while a Masjid is close to them. However if the Masjid is far away, and they did not hear the call to prayer, then there is no sin on them if they observe it in congregation at home. source: islamkingdom
  23. 1- Bathing and perfuming before assuming Ihram. 2- Wearing a wrapper (garment) and cover cloth which are white. 3- Saying the Talbiyah, starting when assuming Ihram and continuing until stoning Jamaratul aqabah. 4- The arrival circumambulation for those performing Ifrad or Hajj al-Qiraan. 5- Raml in the first three rounds during the arrival circumambulation. 6- Observing al-Idh’tiba’ during the circumambulation of arrival, and this is done by passing the cover cloth under the right armpit and placing the ends of the cloth on one’s left shoulder. 7- Spending the eve of Arafah at Mina. 8- Kissing the Black Stone. 9- Praying Maghrib and Isha’ prayers merged and advanced at Muzdalifah. 10- Staying at Al-Mash’ar Al-Haram (the revered landmark) in Muzdalifa from Fajr until sunrise, if possible, otherwise it is acceptable to stay at any place in Muzdalifah. Supererogatory acts of Hajj: Whoever omits a supererogatory act (sunnah) of Hajj has not committed any violation and his Hajj is still valid. The obligatory acts of Hajj Whoever omits an obligation must offer blood (sacrifice an animal) to make up for this omission. Source: Islamkingdom
  24. Rulings On Fasting

    Fasting, according to the prescription of Allah, is of two kinds: 1- Compulsory Fasting This is also of two kinds: a-Obligatory fasting which, from the beginning, Allah Almighty decreed as an obligation upon His servants. This is Fasting in the month of Ramadan, one of the five pillars of Islam. b-Obligatory fasting whose compulsion was due to or caused by the servant of Allah. Examples include fasting due to pledges or as a result of expiation for one’s inequities. 2- Recommended Fasting This includes all forms of Fasting recommended by Allah Almighty and/or His Messenger. Examples of this is fasting on Mondays and Thursdays, three days of every lunar month, on the tenth day of Muharram (first month of the Islamic calendar), the first ten days of Dhul Hijjah (the 12th month) and on the Day of ‘Arafah (i.e. the 9th day of Dhul Hijjah). source: islamkingdom

Bestow on me satisfaction... bestow on me safety... bestow on me happiness and your gentle care… Be generous to us, O Allah, and favour us, for You are the Most Generous, Most Magnanimous and the Most Bounteous One.. &"And grant us from Yourself mercy. Indeed, You are the Bestower&" (Âl-&"Imrân: 8). , “Verily, Allah is generous and He loves generosity. He loves nobility of character and He detests low morality” (Narrated by at-Tirmidthi). &"Al-Wahab&" (the Bestower) He bestows upon whoever He wishes, and withholds from whoever He wishes. Aj-Jawad (the Magnanimous, the One Who Gives Generously) His generosity is unrestricted and limitless, and His endowments are unstoppable. He says to anything: &"&"Be,&" and it is&" (Al-Baqarah: 117). &"Al-Wahab&" (the Bestower) He bestows physical and moral sustenance, and is generous with His favours and blessings. A part of those favours and blessing are the good and beneficial ideas, knowledge, guidance, being able to do good, having one’s prayers answered, and similar beneficial sustenances that Allah grants to many people &"Al-Wahab&" (the Bestower) He bestows and withholds. He raises and lowers. He joins and disconnects. All good is in His Hand and He is Al-Qadeer (the Omnipotent). He is Allah, Al-Wahab (the Bestower), Aj-Jawad (the Magnanimous, the One Who Gives Generously)… source: islamkingdom
