While it is true that the Prophet (saws) was never seen without a head-covering, there is no hadith reaching us from him (saws) that legislates covering the head while praying. The actions of the Prophet (saws) are divided into those that form part of the shari'ah (in this case, actions of the Prophet (saws) that are legislated for us to perform and emulate ...

The only hair areas that I am aware of that have restrictions are: The beard for men Narrated By Ibn 'Umar : Allah's Apostle said, "Cut the moustaches short and leave the beard (as it is)." Sahih al-Bukhary, The Book of Dress, Hadith Number:5954 The eyebrows for women Narrated By 'Abdullah : Allah has cursed those women who practise ...

NOTE: Some scholars say that *Wearing any ring is not Sunnah since the Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) used to wear a ring for signing letters sent to other kings. Because they told him that kings would not accept any letter that has not been signed. Hence, Scholars say it is Sunnah for those who use it to sign papers and documents. And some say it is Sunnah even ...

This has many views, but apparently the strongest view is this: the majority of the scholars (jumhur) are of the opinion that Walima is a meal that is prepared after the marriage has been consummated. This was the practice of the Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him & give him peace), as explicitly mentioned in one narration. Sayyiduna Anas ...

walecum assalam brother. This issue is delicate, and has doubt in it that how and to which level ,a man may imitate a woman,only then it is prohibited? actually there is no fine line to clear this point. There is crystal clear hadith about this point: It was narrated that Abu Hurayrah (may Allaah be pleased with him) said: The Messenger of Allaah (...

This might seem like a big deal from afar but from personal experience it is rarely an issue. Consider the following distinguishing features: height build purses or other paraphernalia patterns/markings on their dress footwear accompanying children And in the event of mistaken identity, the lady will make it clear by moving away or through lack of ...

Leaving it noticeably longer in some areas compared to others is what is known as qaz' (Arabic: قزع), which the Prophet ﷺ forbade us to do. Either shave it all or leave it all: حَدَّثَنَا أَحْمَدُ بْنُ حَنْبَلٍ، حَدَّثَنَا عَبْدُ الرَّزَّاقِ، حَدَّثَنَا مَعْمَرٌ، عَنْ أَيُّوبَ، عَنْ نَافِعٍ، عَنِ ابْنِ عُمَرَ، أَنَّ النَّبِيَّ صلى الله عليه وسلم رَأَى ...

I think the hadith that you quote is very clear about lowering the gaze. Shaykh, Muhammad ibn Saalih al-‘Uthaymeen said regarding the issue: Watching television is divided into three categories: 1) Watching that which is of benefit for one's religion and beneficial matters of this life, however it is conditional on it not becoming a means to see ...

Bismillah (in the name of Allah), Allah (SWT) says in Surat An-Nur, verse #60 والقواعد من النساء اللاتي لا يرجون نكاحا فليس عليهن جناح ان يضعن ثيابهن غير متبرجات بزينة وان يستعففن خير لهن والله سميع عليم And women of post-menstrual age who have no desire for marriage - there is no blame upon them for putting aside their outer garments [but] ...

The thing with old women is, by that age, they will have lost their beauty, or men don't feel that lust when they look at those old women the same and exact way they don't feel that lust when they look at their own mother or sisters. So, the old woman should be old enough and have lost significant amount of her beauty. To the question, Can men look at old ...

There are ahadith (hadiths) which allow wearing red clothes and others which prohibit it. And therefore the middle way -as described in the linked Fatwa- is not to wear clothes which are pure red but to wear clothes where the red color is mixed with other colors. I guess for pink and other color shades you will hardly find a hadith. Here just some ...

Wearing a cap in salaah (prayer) is masnoon (derived from sunnah). Wearing a cap all the time too is sunnah. The holy prophet (pbuh) covered his head for most of the time, not only during prayer. Though one condition: the cap should not contain things that are forbidden to wear like gold and silk. And wearing a cap is not at all a compulsion because no ...

There is nothing in Islam that prevents a woman to supervise men working under her. Remember that the Prophet himself worked for a woman, Khadeeja, who would later become his wife. Another reported case that came later was that the caliph Omar ibn Al-Khattab appointed a woman as the supervisor of the local market.

The thing that you mention about Gold is to WEARING it. Wearing refer to clothes ,jewels and any thing that you use the verb WEAR for it. Having a gold pen, a golden-ed phone or any other examples such this is not according to HARAM. what I've to mention is that it's not mater it is pure gold, for example a silver ring that is golden-ed in the surface is ...

Islam dictates both genders to be careful and not get a certain degree of friendly comfort with a non-Maharam. And buying or receiving food could to some be perceived as that. It is subjective and a Muslim is obligated to refrain/be safe from things (e.g. talking) which they think could lead them to transgress the boundaries set by Islam. Hence the Islamic ...

The majority of the scholars hold the opinion that this should be limited to what is allowed in the rulings of Hijab and Awrah for a stranger woman i.e the face and hands. From Imam Nawawi's Minhaj Al Talibin: The Sonna has introduced the practice of seeing a woman one proposes to marry, even without her knowing it, and even several times, before ...

To summarize the so-called reasons you provided is that hijāb: Hides the adornment of women, thus barring or reducing men's attraction towards women and any associated potential harm. Acts as a protection from evil or harm. Is a form of modesty. I have not come across any scholarly opinion that said any of the above were the causes (or some of the causes) ...

Wearing of earrings for girls/women is okay, as there are narration of the women companions doing so: ثُمَّ أَتَى النِّسَاءَ فَوَعَظَهُنَّ وَذَكَّرَهُنَّ وَأَمَرَهُنَّ بِالصَّدَقَةِ، فَرَأَيْتُهُنَّ يَهْوِينَ إِلَى آذَانِهِنَّ وَحُلُوقِهِنَّ يَدْفَعْنَ إِلَى بِلاَلٍ، ثُمَّ ارْتَفَعَ هُوَ وَبِلاَلٌ إِلَى بَيْتِهِ Then the Prophet (ﷺ) went to the ...

First, to the last part... If they're vessels (like cups and spoons), they're clearly forbidden in the various authentic ahadeeth. Now to the main part about other than utensils... Let us first recall the hadeeth from Saheeh al-Bukhaari: Al-Halaalu Bayyin, wal-harramu bayyin... الحلال بيّن والحرام بيّن... The hadeeth basically explains that the ...

Dear brother the medal is a symbol of recognition for sporting (in your case) achievments and at least you should know that gold medals are not made of 100 % gold. And don't forget that our Messenger used to accept gifts and this is a kind of gift! So in my POV i can't see any harm in accepting it as it will end at a wall or a showcase (I even know some ...

Well there's consensus about that the torso of a man isn't awrah. This is what you will find in any fatwa or fiqh book. For example here (Arabic) where the scholar adds that it's forbidden to a woman to look at it no matter if with lust or without! But the fact that the awrah of a man is only between knees and naval doesn't mean that he could go along half ...

All perfect praise be to Allah I will try be as short as possible. An-Nawawi may Allaah have mercy upon him said: 'If a person in a state of Ihraam (either for Hajj or 'Umrah) needs to cover his head, or wear any limb-fitting clothes for a sound reason like heat, cold or treatment, then it is permissible for him to cover but he is obliged to ...

The Quran wasn't distributed as a book to be read. Verses were revealed on the fly, to address issues as they arose. The Prophet proclaimed the verses on the pulpit, and in sermons and recited them aloud while leading congregational prayers, which were attended by both men and women. Narrated Ibn Abbas: (My mother) Umu-l-Fadl heard me reciting "Wal ...

According to Jafari Fiqh if there is fear of falling in sin and looking for enjoy then yes it is Haram. Question: Is it permissible to look at non-Muslim women who are naked or half-naked in television and its like for the purpose of fulfilling the inquisitive nature with no guarantee whether or not sexual desire will be aroused? Is it permissible ...

In Islam, as far as i know, there is NO such thing as the Stones have some power. or even if they do have, we are not supposed to use them for any of such benefit. As the ultimate helper is only Allah, nothing like a ring or stone in it. So i would suggest that it is better to avoid such scams, and for controlling anger follow the Sunnah which is Drink ...

I had written an answer to a similar question on another site, which I am copying (with slight modification) below: Plucking of the eyebrows goes against the sunnah of the prophet and should not be done; much like getting a tattoo or lengthening the hair, it is considered a form of changing what Allah has created. There are a number of ahadith wherein the ...

According to the viewpoint of the Prophet (pbuh) and Shia (narrations), it is a tradition to wear a ring. The design, material and appearance of the ring have all been mentioned in the hadiths. On the other hand, It has also been pointed to wear the ring on the right hand. Of course it is not a Waajeb(indispensable) act, it is just a Mustahab act. For ...

Salaam This not called beard which you mention in your question. Beard is called beard when you do not clean hairs on your face at certain limits. This means beard on your face is started from ears till your chin and it also goes down to neck (not full neck but a half which is proper), this does not count the area of right and left side of your nose. The ...

Yes, Islam does promote gender stereotypes roles. In some cases, adhering to your gender's role is enforceable under sharia law. Women imitating men and vice versa The most obvious example is that women imitating men and vice versa is considered a sin in Islam. It's listed as major sin 33 by Imam Shamsu ed-Deen Dhahabi in Al-Kaba'ir (translated) or Major ...
