Fasting is obligatory, and not fasting is a great sin. The only people exempted from fasting are the following: Travelers (of long distances) Sick people (that are too sick to fast) Old people (that cannot fast) Those undergoing menstruation or something similar. The point of Ramadan is not that Muslims stop working. They need to work anyway. Fearing ...

For them, you can speak to him whenever and however you want and build a relationship with him. For us, it’s more just obligatory actions and only to worship Him. This is a false understanding you have of Islam. Loving Allah and doing good deeds so that He loves us is an essential part of Islam. You should speak to God whenever and however you want, ...

An overview of the scholarly views First of all we need to clarify the scholarly view on madhy: Is it tahir (pure) or is it najis (impure)? The majority view (some scholars even said it is a consensus) is that it is najis especially based on the ahadith you've quoted saying that one should sprinkle a handful water on what is smeared with it and wash the ...

Niyyat(Intention) is a must. Every single work is based on intention. I heard Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) saying, "The reward of deeds depends upon the intentions and every person will get the reward according to what he has intended. So whoever emigrated for worldly benefits or for a woman to marry, his emigration was for what he emigrated for." Sahih ...

A martyr is a Muslim who gets killed in combat against the disbelievers. Such a person will be called and treated as a martyr in at least this life, such as in the funeral rites. In order to be a martyr in the sight of Allah, and hence be granted paradise, his intentions must be pure. His goal must have been the dominance of Islam and defeating of Kufr, not ...

First ghusl must be done to regain tahrah (ritual purity) in order to be able to pray and worship. If a woman became junub during her menses. Even if she performed ghusl for Janabah she doesn't get in a state of tahrah unless by coincidence her menses ended. So from a logical point of view ghusl (of Janabah) is not necesarry, but in case of a supposed haram (...

There be reward of kindness towards every living thing. Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) said, "While a man was walking on a road. he became very thirsty. Then he came across a well, got down into it, drank (of its water) and then came out. Meanwhile he saw a dog panting and licking mud because of excessive thirst. The man said to himself "This dog is ...

Allah made clear what is right (legal, halal, etc.) and what is wrong (illegal, haram etc.) in the qur'an. And for men or women the halal kinds of intercourse are mentioned too: And they who guard their private parts (5) Except from their wives or those their right hands possess, for indeed, they will not be blamed - (6) But whoever seeks beyond that, then ...

What you are asking for seems not permissible according to the fatwas I've consulted. However eating with non-Muslims is permissible as is stated in this fatwa: The scholars of the Standing Committee were asked: What is the ruling on eating, drinking, sitting with and interacting with a disbeliever? Does it put one beyond the pale of Islam? They replied: ...

When Allah tests you with hardship, it's a calling from him. How else will you get over a struggle if you don't ask the almighty for help? Allah doesn't want you to be among the disbelievers so by testing you, it will make you come back to Him and pray to Him to ease your struggle. So praying because of a specific hardship you're facing is not being ...

You can get closer to Allah by worshiping him. Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) said, "Allah says: ‘Whoever takes a close friend of Mine as an enemy, I declare war on him. My slave does not draw closer to Me by anything more beloved to Me than that which I have made obligatory upon him, and My slave continues to draw closer to Me by doing naafil (supererogatory) ...

I want a sandwich. I believe that if I go into the kitchen, get some bread and cheese from the fridge, I will end up with a sandwich. Does this go against God? No. Does believing that I'll end up with a sandwich mean I'll end up with a sandwich? No. Maybe I'm run out of bread. Maybe I'd die of a heart attack on the way to the kitchen. Maybe I'll actually ...

Strictly speaking istikharah is a prayer or consultation-prayer that has been introduced for Muslims in first place. A short clarification: its pre requirements are taharah -ritual purity- which means one should be Muslim (first), perform (at least) wudu' -ablution- or whatever is necessary to be in a pure state. Then one should pray a two raka'a sunnah or ...

Assalamu alaikum If a Muslim man intends to go to the gym to become healthy then there is no reason for them not to be able to go there as long as adhering to the sharia of course. However in the case of a Muslim woman they should go to a gym which is for women only as not to mix with non-mahram men. I'm not sure if this would also apply if the woman dressed ...

At this moment I would regard this as a partial answer or better a draft (I'd even recommend anybody to not vote for it by now, but feel free to comment). Please note that I don't know this sheikh nor the content of the lecture he has given about LGBT rights. But be aware that such people as long as they don't follow their desires and act upon them in public ...

If your mind is playing music it has no connection with your ghusl. If your body is properly washed,mouth and nose is rinsed properly your ghusl is valid. Jazakallah Khairan

The majority view is that niyyah is required for ghusl, as without it one wouldn't be tahir and therefore the minimum condition for praying is not reached. "The reward of deeds depends upon the intentions and every person will get the reward according to what he has intended. So whoever emigrated for worldly benefits or for a woman to marry, his ...

What you have to do is clear if there's a risk of impurity transfer because you use this carpet extensively then you should wash the carpet or replace it.

It’s all about their intention. Whoever sacrifice their Life for the sake of Allah swt will consider as a martyr.

And the reward of martyr is giving ALLAH azwajal.That’s why i said it’s about their ...

Best thing is to pray when the time comes, even if you cannot necessarily do it perfectly. You can perform the prayer while simply sitting in a chair, if there is no option for proper sajdah, just do a nod and a short bow in place of rukuh/sujjud. You can even do tayyamum (symbolic/dry wudhu) if water is not nearby for preparing. If you don't pray it at the ...
