The belief that all Muslims (who are believers) will leave Hell is a belief agreed upon in Sunni Islam. This is in contrast to the Mutazilah and the Khawarij who believed that Muslims who committed major sins would stay in Hell forever, and some of them believed that a person who committed major sins would no longer be a Muslim.
One of the standard creeds of ...
According your description you seem to have prayed the first time a Eid prayer.
The major difference between Eid prayers and Jumu'ah is that the sermon of the Eid prayer is performed after the prayer, while in Jum'ah it is done prior to the prayer this is the sunnah. Some sunni reports say that Marwan tried to change it because people were leaving the ...
There is nothing in Islam as Jihad un-nikah. I bring you the history of this story.
Firstly, this Fatwa was issued by a news network called Al-Jadid in Lebanon on December 2012. It had claimed that Saudi sheikh Al-Arifi has issued a Fatwa about Jahad-u-nikah and made it Halal. But After this news, Al-Arifi and his companions rejected it.
Then in march 27, ...
Did the Islamic calendar come after the invention of the English calendar? Yes and no.
The Hijri calendar (i.e. the Islamic calendar) counts years based on the Hijrah — the year Mohammad and his followers left Mecca for Madinah — which is actually about the halfway point in Muhammad's twenty-odd year long ministry, so it's correlation to "how ...
For reference, here is the link to my previous answer which details the stance of the schools on blasphemy and its basis in 9:12. Apart from that, 9:61-66 and 33:57 are also sometimes cited as supporting evidence.
Hadith which are cited as evidence include narrations about:
The slave-woman of the blind sahabi who he killed. And the Prophet declared that the ...
Dear brother in humanity,
Did you even take the time to read the previous verse or the complete verse at least?
Never mind, the Quran does not encourage Muslims to fight non-belivers, however Islam is not a pacifist religion and states that there are times where it is neccasary to defend ones self, community and family.
If you read the verse previous to ...
The hadith is in Sahih Muslim:
Once the Prophet, while passing through one of the graveyards of
Medina or Mecca heard the voices of two persons who were being
tortured in their graves. The Prophet (ﷺ) said, "These two persons are
being tortured not for a major sin (to avoid)." The Prophet (ﷺ) then
added, "Yes! (they are being tortured for a ...
They base it on:
فإن تابوا وأقاموا الصلاة وآتوا الزكاة فخلوا سبيلهم
But if they should repent, establish prayer, and give zakah, let them [go] on their way.
— Quran 9:5
أمرت أن أقاتل الناس حتى يشهدوا أن لا إله إلا الله وأن محمدا رسول الله ويقيموا الصلاة ويؤتوا الزكاة فإذا فعلوا عصموا مني دماءهم وأموالهم إلا بحقها وحسابهم على الله
I have been commanded to ...
To complement the answer by @Uma:
General rule: A Muslim should not kill another Muslim intentionally
وَمَا كَانَ لِمُؤْمِنٍ أَن يَقْتُلَ مُؤْمِنًا إِلَّا خَطَأً
And never is it for a believer to kill a believer except by mistake.
— Surah An-Nisa [4:92-93]
The verse above is a general rule, but it has an exemption ("by mistake"). The verse is ...
Nope it is not. It might be a tradition in some regions, but apart from that it has nothing to do with Islamic marriages.
The only things that are must are,
Consent – Both the groom and the bride must consent to the marriage, verbally and in writing. Wali comes into this category on behalf of bride to do the consent
In this hadith from al-Khisal by Ibn Babawayh we see that Imam Ali a.s. not only accept this action, he explains the reason of raising hands at dua:
Imam Ali a.s. said:
اذا فَرِغَ اَحَدُکُمْ مِنَ الصَّلوةِ فَلْیَرْفَعْ یَدَیْهِ اِلَى
السَّماءِ، وَ لِیَنْصَبَّ فى الدُّعاء
When one of you finished his prayer raise his hand and make dua.
A man ...
This is ridiculous and untrue, at least in mainstream Sunni Islam. As far as I'm aware, the ahadith that talk about martyrs (those killed fighting in a legitimate military engagement) all talk about them in a passive sense without reference to who killed them. For example, look through here: http://sunnah.com/search/martyr
There is something very perverted ...
it depends on what you mean by feminist. If you mean that a feminist is someone who fights for her God-given rights, then that is fine. God has given her those rights. Others are denying her and her gender those rights, and she is fighting to right this wrong. That is perfectly fine.
THe problem arises when feminists try to change the laws of God to fit ...
My answer will not explain the actions of Dr Zakir, however, I will touch on the topic.
In Islam, it is our duties to convey and make others aware of the teachings of Islam as this is what we were commanded to do.
“Convey (my teachings) to the people even if it were a single
sentence” (Sahih Bukhari, Vol.4, Hadith 667)
Who is better in speech than ...
It's a great grace that you started praying, and trust me you will learn in very short time.
Before explaining the prayer I want to mention that prayer is the act when you can speak to Allah, Allah knows your language, so talk to him in Sojood this is the closest you are to him, no limits, only say (Subhan Rabeya Al Aala - 3times) then speak to Allah about ...
There's a hadith which goes as follows:
“Seek help in having your needs met by being discreet, for everyone who is blessed with something is envied.”
and which is more known among people in the following wording:
“Seek help for success or victory of your needs by being quiet. For verily,everything that has a ni'imah in it is envied.”
This hadith was ...
Allah ordered his Prophet ﷺ to command his wives and daughters to cover themselves up:
يَا أَيُّهَا النَّبِيُّ قُل لِّأَزْوَاجِكَ وَبَنَاتِكَ وَنِسَاءِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ يُدْنِينَ عَلَيْهِنَّ مِن جَلَابِيبِهِنَّ ۚ ذَٰلِكَ أَدْنَىٰ أَن يُعْرَفْنَ فَلَا يُؤْذَيْنَ ۗ وَكَانَ اللَّهُ غَفُورًا رَّحِيمًا
O Prophet, tell your wives and your daughters and the ...
The general rule is that a Muslim can sell anything to anyone. There are some exceptions to this, one of which is that a thing can not be sold when the purpose of the buyer is to do something haram by it. And among them is sale of some items to disbelievers who are at war with the Muslims and could use the item against the Muslims.
In the case of Palestine ...
i want to know ,what is the significance of 9th Rabi-ul-awwal ?
Eid is any day that there is happiness in that day. The significances of 9th Rabi-ul-awwal is that this day is the day that killers of Imam Hussain a.s. at Karbala were destroyed:
One particular hadith which speaks of this day tells us that while in
a gathering with the Prophet of Islam, ...
Calling Islam a religion of peace is correct if you are referring to the peace which happens between the muslim and God. However, If you say Islam is a peaceful religion in which it never commands people to fight. Then I'm afraid to say this is inaccurate. Moreover, Calling Islam a violent religion is inaccurate too(will be explained below)
In the world, we think about things differently than Allah.
Just consider, we say about a person that he is a rich man because he has money, popularity and reputation but in-front of Allah, the man which has good intentions for everybody, has done good deeds, sincerity is the rich and can buy Heaven.
The best example is,
When a believer utters a lie ...
Because Halal slaughter is intended to inflict the least pain on the animal by cutting the arteries which suddenly drains the brain from blood and renders the animal brain-dead and thus unable to feel the pain any longer. Saying "Bismillah" and facing the animal towards Qibla are also meant to highlight the awareness that the slaughter is a gift of God and ...
There is no such prohibition. Instead, there is prohibition on mourning for more than 3 days on the part of women -
Narrated Um 'Atiyya:
We were forbidden to mourn for more than three days except for a husband.
Even then, according to this fatwa source, mourning means avoiding adornments etc. So, abstaining from intimacy with spouse is ...
Islam is not a religion of peace in at least the sense that there are major voices in the schools of law that say Islam commands aggressive war against the Non-Muslims on a regular basis. Some of the verses you quote are employed in the derivations of these legal opinions.
I will talk about jihad in its martial sense; as with most issues, there is ...
Is the book or the words of Allah, it is a divine text.
Refers to any kind of human interpretation of the Quranic text. It might be based on other Quranic verses, Ahadith, historical events. linguistic views or other sources. It might also be a book extracting rulings from the Quran etc.. So it is similar to exegesis as far as I know.
Eid salat is different in this regard, there are extra Takbirs.
The Hanafis add 6 additional takbirs, 3 in the first rakah before the fatiah and 3 in the second rakah before the rukuh.h
The Malikis add 11 extra takbirs. 6 in the first rakah before fatiah, and 5 in the second rakah after standing up from prostration.m
The Hanbalis add 11 additional takbirs, ...
This concept comes from a weak chained Hadith:
إِنَّ الْغَضَبَ مِنْ الشَّيْطَانِ وَإِنَّ الشَّيْطَانَ خُلِقَ مِنْ
النَّارِ وَإِنَّمَا تُطْفَأُ النَّارُ بِالْمَاءِ فَإِذَا غَضِبَ
Anger is from Shaytan and Shaytan is made from fire. Verily fire is
put out with water, so if any of you become angry, then make Wudu'
