  1. 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
  2. Warning?

    1- Zakah can never be given to any other than the eight categories of people mentioned, even if it is for a good and philanthropic cause e.g. the building of Mosques, schools, hospitals, and other charitable causes which are eligible for alms. 2- It is not a condition to cover all of the eight categories mentioned; rather, it suffices if any of them is given the Zakah. source: https://www.al-feqh.com/en/people-to-whom-zakat-is-paid-and-how-it-is-paid
  3. **Temporary marriage is invalid, because it stands for Mut`ah, which is invalid through contextual evidence as well as the consensus of Ahl-ul-Sunnah wal-Jama`ah (adherents to the Sunnah and the Muslim mainstream). It is recorded in the Two Sahih (authentic) Books of Hadith (i.e. Al-Bukhari and Muslim) on the authority of `Aly ibn Abu Talib (may Allah be pleased with him): that on the Day of Khaybar, the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) forbade the contracting of the temporary marriage and [eating] the meat of the domestic donkeys. **According to another narration of the Hadith: The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) forbade marrying women temporarily on the Day of Khaybar. It is authentically narrated in the Sahih of Muslim that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said, I formerly permitted you to contract temporary marriage with women, but Allah has forbidden it (now) until the Day of Resurrection. So he who has any (woman with this type of marriage contract) he should let her off, and do not take back anything you have given them (as Mahr). **Moreover, sexual intercourse under temporary marriage is considered Zina (premarital sexual intercourse); one who gets married this way, being aware of its invalidity, is liable to all rulings of Zina. Marriage is only valid when a man gets married with the intention of keeping the bond of marriage forever if the wife proves to be a good wife and he gets along with her; otherwise he may divorce her. Allah (Exalted be He) said, The divorce is twice, after that, either you retain her on reasonable terms or release her with kindness 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/marriage-to-obtain-citizenship
  4. 1- Intention: Intentions are made in the heart and are not to be pronounced out loud, i.e. audibly. If al-wudu’ is done for a purpose other than purification for worship, such as cooling off or cleaning the body, then it is not valid to perform worship with it. 2- Washing the face. Al-Istinshaq is part of washing the face. 3- Washing of the hands and forearms, including the elbows. 4- Washing of the feet and ankles. 5- Rubbing the head entirely (this includes the ears). 6- Washing these parts one after the other in the order mentioned above siurce: https://www.al-feqh.com/en/wudu-ablution
  5. `Umrah is obligatory one time only during a person's life for the people of Makkah or others due to the general proofs for this.Performing Ihram for `Umrah for a person who is inside the sacred area should be from outside the sacred area such as Al-Tan`im, Al-Ji`ranah or the like.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
