I am not aware of any evidence for not apologizing to a child. Actually it is the opposite, it is ok to apologize. For instance if you bump into the child and not apologize, what do you think that does to him/her? their psychology? For instance children follow by example, if you have more then one child, and you bump into one of them not caring whether ...

Well being disrespectful towards other religions isn't what Islam teaches it's followers. The Prophet(SAW) would engage in discussion with the Jews and used to tell them that Musa(AS) was his brother (showing respect). Islam encourages it's followers to feel pity for the blind people and help these people to develop the sense of sight. This means that a ...

It is ok for you to carry the Mushaf in your bag, there is no proof (to my knowledge) that would forbid this. You can try to make sure that the bag you put it in is clean, meaning there is no najis in it. And Allah knows best.

Love and Respect are the main reasons... PLUS There is some legal aspect to it - as is mentioned in the Hadith (At-Tirmithi, 3545): It was narrated that Abu Hurayrah (may Allaah be pleased with him) said: The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “May his nose be rubbed in the dust, a man in whose presence I am ...

Love and respect is the ultimate reason for the honorifics for people that sacrificed their whole lives for us. There are also hadiths that encourage praising our Prophet (SAW) - not only by the person that has mentioned him, but also by the people that have heard his name being mentioned. I believe using an honorific after the names of other religious ...

Without seeing more it's hard to say what the author meant. Also I'm not sure if he means: respect to a non-Muslim (as a person) respect to a non-Muslim's action If he means action, well if it's a good action then it deserves praise regardless of who's doing it, Muslim or not. If it's about a non-Muslim person: About people of the book: Indeed, those ...

Mufti Akmal answered this question for example here and here regarding the usage of آپ (Aap) in Urdu, I guess it would be a similar case for Hindi: He says that it is permitted but not appropriate to call Allah as Aap because there is an ambiguity in it whether the singular or plural is meant. He cites that while Allah himself has used the plural pronoun ...

Raising the voice is a universal sign of disrespect. Allah (ﷻ) said: يا أيها الذين آمنوا لا ترفعوا أصواتكم فوق صوت النبي ولا تجهروا له بالقول كجهر بعضكم لبعض أن تحبط أعمالكم وأنتم لا تشعرون O you who have believed, do not raise your voices above the voice of the Prophet or be loud to him in speech like the loudness of some of you to others, lest your deeds ...

"Although the father deserves to be warned (of divine punishment) for his sin and neglect of shar‘i duties, disobedient children and those who do not treat their parents kindly are also warned about their actions; it is not permissible to repay mistreatment with mistreatment or wrongdoing with wrongdoing.

It is haram to say to or about a person who is or died as a believer that he/she is (or will be) in Jahannam (Hell). As we only know that disbelievers will end up in hell: Indeed, they who disbelieved among the People of the Scripture and the polytheists will be in the fire of Hell, abiding eternally therein. Those are the worst of creatures. (98:6) So ...

In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful Your question: Is saying “see you in Hell” haram? Answer: God Says: [He is] Knower of the Ghaeeb [future and unseen] and the witnessed, the Grand, the Exalted. [13:9] ”Indeed, God [alone] has knowledge of the Hour and sends down the rain and knows what is in the wombs. And no soul perceives what it will earn ...

First and foremost, the person who says it has no right to say so, because we never know where we will end up and we cant decide for each other either. Only God can judge us. So to answer your question, I seriously doubt that a believer would ever say it, because he would just be claiming that he will end up in hellfire. You will be judged in this life ...

As an Arabian we actually say 'ya Allah' a lot for different situations, so I think it's fine to say 'oh, Allah' and I am sure you will not use Allah name in inappropriate situations.

The correct view concerning this matter is that it is haraam to have intercourse with a woman in view of anyone, unless the onlooker is a child who does not understand what is happening; in this case it does not matter. But ...

The prophet (Saw) has not explicity encouraged the kissing of hands and feet of the eledery and respected, but he has allowed it - as long as there is no risk of it being interpreted as shirk.

According to scholars, it depends if the application is running. If it's running and the Quran verses are on the screen, then you should be in state of wudu (ritual purity). What is forbidden is to make the name of God (or any part of His speech) appear in a improper place, or to touch/read it in an improper state. You can see a full answer here. Little ...
