I am a little alarmed that you are panicking about "sins" you made as a child! What kind of monster do you think God is? First of all, a sin is only a sin if you intended to make that sin, knowing what you were doing, which can hardly apply to your recent misfortune, least of all when you were a child. Innama al a3malou bin-nyiate : the deeds require ...

Sujood Saho is part of a Hadith by Bukhari. Here is a translation of one hadith: Aalqama said: Abdullah Ibn Masoud said, “The prophet (SAAW) prayed (and) Ibrahim (Al Nakh’ie) said, ‘I don’t know if (the prophet) added or missed!’ After (the prophet) finished the prayer with tasleem, the companions asked him, ‘O prophet of Allah, was anything new given in ...

Allah didn't predestine John or any other person to hell or heaven. He knows in His vast knowledge that Jhon who has a free will, will commit actions that will send him to hell. He doesn't dictate it. He is not forcing Jhon to do bad deeds. His knowledge is so vast that He knows well in advance what Jhon is going to do. Here's an example. Not a good one ...

If Imaam makes mistake in basic actions like Ruku' and Sujood, the follower should correct him by saying out loud "Subhanallah". If the mistake is realised by a female follower, she can alert by clapping. Sahl b. Sa'd al-Sa'idi reported: The Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) went to the tribe of Bani Amr b. Auf in order to bring ...

Yes, as you said, you gave damage to someone else's property. No matter how little it is, there is a damage. I don't know if you could find the owner (I think you should put a paper with your number on the car), but at least you should try. And when you find him, you have to explain that it was an accident and you have to apologize. Then you should give the ...

I'd like to offer quite a different point of view; of course if the quran is from an all-knowing god who only reveals truths, then it follows the quran cannot have any errors. This is equivalent to the statement that if there is a single error in the quran, then it cannot be from an all-knowing god that only reveals truths, and this is why there is so much ...

For the validity of wudu' you need to have done at least the fard parts which are mentioned in (5:6): you who have believed, when you rise to [perform] prayer, wash your faces and your forearms to the elbows and wipe over your heads and wash your feet to the ankles. And if you are in a state of janabah, then purify yourselves. But if you are ill or on a ...

The mistake is what you have heard at least it is a rather incorrect information which lacks necessary details which I'll be explaining later. As for the evidences for ...

If someone makes a mistake in pray er or in wudu, and they were not aware of that, they are excused for their ignorance on the matter. If they did not realise their errors, they are not taken to account for that. And Allah, may He be exalted, says (interpretation of the meaning): “And there is no sin on you if you make a mistake therein, except in regard to ...

The most important point in this hadith is the statement: "...according to his own opinion ..." This means the meaning of the whole hadith is if you explain or interpret even a single verse of the Qur'an (or more), without real knowledge (of tafseer), as you like (following your own opinion or mind or hawa or nafs), then you are sinning and doing a big ...

The point is that in our modern Arabic we use tamanna تمنى for wish and desire, but apparently it has other meanings too which one must take into account. According to tafsir ibn Kathir agrees with the translation of sahih international and gives some quotes which emphasize the story of gharaniq and the satanic verses. Imam al-Qurtoby interpreted it (My ...

This translation (i.e. "tamanna" as "recite") appears in "The History of al-Tabari: Volume 6: Muhammad at Mecca"; Translated and Annotated by W. Montgomery Watt and M.V. McDonald.

Read Tash-had till or beyond Darood in 2nd Rakat (while sitting) while being in 4 Rakat Faraz, where Imam is supposed to get up for 3rd Raqat. Imam is ...

That would be a Shaytan of the category of Khinzib (خنزب) who come and distract you in prayer, make you forget what you are reading etc. What you do is seek refuge in Allah, then blow three times on your left side. And when I say blow, it is between blowing and spitting, meaning you are not really bowing, and you are not really spitting, but in between ...
