6 Athaar On Worshipping Allaah And Not Wasting Time

Posted in Miscellaneous with tags , , , , , , , , on June 10, 2013 by TheAuthenticBase

1) Some people entered the house of Junayd when he was dying and they found him bowing and prostrating. Despite of his weakness and knowing the moment of death was very soon, he wanted to fold his legs (while in the prayer to do the Sunnah), but he could not because his legs were paralysed. One man said, “Why is he doing all this?” Another replied, “This is from the graces of Allaah! Allaahu akbar!” [Tabaqaat Awliyaa’, pp. 133-134]

2) One day a man met ‘Aamir Ibn Qays (d. 55h) and asked him, “Can I have a word with you?” So ‘Aamir said, “Then stop the time, so I can talk with you.” And he told a man who asked him a question, “Be quick for I am about to leave.” The man asked him, “What do you mean by that?” He said, “My soul will soon leave my body.”

3) Some people visited a worshipper and told him, “Did we interrupt you?” He said, “Yes you did! I was reading [the Quraan] and you prevented me [from continuing].

4) Aboo Moosaa Al-Ash’aree (d. 42h) used to fast in hot weather so it was said to him, “You are an old man.” He said, “I’m preparing it for a long day (i.e. the day of judgement).

5) A worshipper was once asked, “You should be easy on yourself (i.e. do not exhaust yourself with acts of worship).” He replied, “Indeed I exhaust myself in worship because easiness is what I am looking for.”

6) A friend of Saree As-Saqatee went to visit him, so he found a group of people in his house. Thus he said, “O Saree! You (i.e. your house) have become an environment for idlers!” And he left immediately. [Hilyat Al-Awliaa’, 10/119]

Advice To Musilmahs Regarding Their Husbands, Part 8

Posted in Sisters Base with tags , , , , , on November 10, 2011 by TheAuthenticBase

She Should Not Offer Any Nafl Fasts Except With His Permission:

Proof:

Aboo Hurairah reportede that the Messenger of Allaah (saw) said:

“A woman should not fast when her husband is present except with his permission…”

Note: This applies only when he is present, if he is traveling, or is not present, then it is permissible for her to fast.

The point here is that her fast (which is optional) may cancel out some of his rights (which are fard [compulsory]), especially the right to sexual intercourse.

This right is one of her obligations, while observing a nafl fast is something that is recommended. Undoubtdly, that which is obligatory takes precedence over that which is recomended.

Fasting In The Month Of Muharram

Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) said: “The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said:

The best of fasting after Ramadhan is fasting Allah’s month of Muharram.‘” (Reported by Muslim, 1982).

6 Issues To Do With Intercourse During The Day In Ramadhaan

Posted in Ramadhaan with tags , , , , , , , , , , on August 23, 2010 by TheAuthenticBase

It is well known that whoever has intercourse with his wife during the day in Ramadaan has to free a slave or fast two consecutive months or feed sixty poor persons.

Question 1:

If a man has intercourse with his wife more than once on a number of days, does he have to fast two months for each day, or is two months sufficient to expiate for all the days on which he had intercourse?

Answer:

Praise be to Allaah.

With regard to one who is obliged to fast:

If he has intercourse with his wife during the day in Ramadaan, one or more times on one day, then he must offer one expiation. If he had intercourse on several days then he must offer multiple expiations, the same number as the days on which he had intercourse.

Question 2:

If he did not know that this ruling applies to the one who has intercourse with his wife, and he thought that for each day that he had intercourse with his wife he had to make up just one day, what is the ruling in this case?

Answer:

He must offer expiation for having intercourse even if he was unaware of the fact that he would have to offer expiation for having intercourse.

Question 3:

Is the wife subject to the same ruling as the husband?

Answer:

The wife must also offer expiation for having intercourse if she willingly went along with her husband in that. But if she was forced then she does not have to do anything.

Question 4:

Is it permissible to pay money instead of giving food?

Answer:

It is not permissible to give money instead of feeding a poor person, and that is not sufficient.

Question 5:

Is it permissible to feed one poor person on behalf of himself and his wife?

Answer:

It is permissible to feed one poor person half a saa’ on behalf of himself and half a saa’ on behalf of his wife. That will be considered to be one of the sixty poor persons who must be fed on behalf of them both.

Question 6:

If he cannot find a person to feed, is it permissible to give money to one of the charitable organizations such as Jam’iyyat al-Birr in Riyadh or another charity?.

Answer:

It is not permissible to give it all to one poor person, or to a charitable organization etc., because they may not distribute it to sixty poor persons. The believer must strive to discharge his duty with regard to expiations and other obligations.

And Allaah is the Source of strength. May Allaah send blessings and peace upon our Prophet Muhammad and his family and companions.

Feeding Others Who Are Opening Their Fast

Posted in Ramadhaan with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on August 13, 2010 by TheAuthenticBase

The Messenger of Allaah (salallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) said,

Whoever feeds a fasting person will have a reward like that of the fasting person, without any reduction in his reward.

[At-Tirmidhi, authenticated by Al-Albani (rahimahullaah).]

Shaykh Muhammad bin Saalih Al-‘Uthaimeen (rahimahullaah) said,

“Those who have the ability should strive to feed those who are fasting (when it’s time to break the fast) either in the masaajid or in other places. This is since whoever feeds a fasting person, he will receive the same reward as the one fasting. So if a person feeds his brothers who are fasting, he will receive the same reward as them. Therefore, those whom Allaah has granted wealth should take advantage of this opportunity to obtain a great reward.”

[48 Su’aalan fis-Siyaam]

What To Break Your Fast With

Posted in Ramadhaan with tags , , , , , , , on August 13, 2010 by TheAuthenticBase

The sunnah is to break your fasting by dates, as has been narrated by Anas (radiallaahu ‘anhu), who said:

The Messenger of Allaah (salallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) used to break his Saum (fasting) before performing Maghrib prayer with three fresh date-fruits; if there were no fresh date-fruits, he would eat three dry dates; and if there were no dry date-fruits; he would take three draughts of water.” [At-Tirmidhi]

The Enormous Reward for Fasting

Posted in Miscellaneous, Ramadhaan with tags , , , , , , , , , on August 12, 2010 by TheAuthenticBase

Talha ibn ‘Ubaydallah (radhiallahu `anhu) reported that two men came to the Prophet (sallallahu `alayhi wa sallam) who had accepted Islam at the same time. One of them used to partake in Jihad more-so than the other, and so (one day) he fought in a battle and was martyred therein. The other remained behind him for another year, and then he passed away.

Talha said, “I saw in my dream that I was at the door of Paradise when behold, I was with both of them (the two men). Someone came out of Paradise and allowed the man who passed away later to enter first. Then he came out again and allowed the martyred one to enter. Then he returned and said to me, ‘Go back, for your time has not come yet.’

Talha woke up and began to inform others about this and they were all surprised. This reached the Messenger of Allah (sallallahu `alayhi wa sallam) and when they informed him of it, he (sallallahu `alayhi wa sallam) said, ‘What are you surprised about?

They said, ‘O Messenger of Allah! Out of them both, this one strove harder (in Jihad) then he was martyred but this other one was entered into Paradise before him.

The Messenger of Allah (sallallahu `alayhi wa sallam) said, ‘Did he not remain behind him for one year?

They said, ‘Yes (he did).

He said, ‘Did he not reach Ramadan, fast and pray with such and such number of prostrations in the year?

They said, ‘Yes.’

The Messenger of Allah (sallallahu `alayhi wa sallam) said, ‘So the difference between them is greater than what is between the heavens and the earth.

[Ibn Majah (2/345-346); and al-Silsilah al-Saheehah]
