Prayer times are traditionally calculated according to the position of the sun, regardless of the weather. There is typically a 90 minute window (varies by season and location) for praying maghrib for it to be valid, so even though it's typically prayed at the beginning of that period it is permissible to delay it if you are unable to determine the position ...

When both are equally viable, the most recommended course of action is that the person praying behind the Imam should move back. This is shown in a long hadith of Sahih Muslim: Jabir ibn Abdullah narrated: [...] Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) got up to observe prayer [...] I then came and stood upon the left side of Allah's Messenger (ﷺ). He caught hold of me and ...

Washing hands, arms, face, wiping over the head and washing feet before prayer (salah) is part of wudu. It is required for prayer to be acceptable. يا أيها الذين آمنوا إذا قمتم إلى الصلاة فاغسلوا وجوهكم وأيديكم إلى المرافق وامسحوا برءوسكم وأرجلكم إلى الكعبين O you who have believed, when you rise to [perform] prayer, wash your faces and your forearms to the ...

If he does not pray, then it is his fault, not yours. You will not be punished for his sins and he will not be punished for your sins.

Let me add some depth to your question: Why it's recommended to brush your teeth? Put on perfume/cologne, comb your hair or in general be clean — regardless of being Tahir? Additionally you could ask why do we have to make wudu? First right then left? Why 5 times? Why sit down? Why not pray while I'm jogging? At the high level, the whole notion of it to ...

It is a point of agreement among the scholars that asking forgiveness for a person who has died as a disbeliever is unlawful and forbidden. Allah says in the Quran: It is not for the Prophet and those who have believed to ask forgiveness for the polytheists, even if they were relatives, after it has become clear to them that they are companions of Hellfire. ...

Fajr begins at subh saadiq, true dawn or the beginning of twilight, when the morning light appears across the full width of the sky and ends at sunrise. The time interval for offering the Zuhr starts after the sun passes its zenith and lasts until 20 min (approx) before the call for the Asr prayer is to be given. The Asr prayer starts when the shadow of an ...

No why should it be sinful. Who except Allah knows whether any of both will be accepted. At least one might be regarded as a nafl prayer.

Asalaam Alaikum the answer to this is in the last part of the question you have asked. placing a barrier (sutra) is the sunnah. there are numerous ahadith about placing of the sutra for the person who is praying alone. ill try to explain a little more, insha Allah. The Prophet sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam ( may Allaah exalt his mention ) said: "...

You can hardly invalidate a prayer which has ended. And the prayer ends with the salam or tasleem: The Prophet (ﷺ) said: The key of prayer is purification; takbir (saying "Allah is most great") makes (all acts which break prayer) unlawful and taslim (uttering the salutation) makes (all such acts) lawful. (See for example in Sunan abi Dawod 1 & ...

A child should be taught at the age of 7 to pray then if they refuse to pray at the age of 10, they should be smacked lightly. This is to train the child to pray so that they will not refuse to pray at the age of puberty. This summarizes the following quotes: Abu Dawood (459) and Ahmad (6650) narrated from ‘Amr ibn Shu’ayb from his father that his ...

It sounds strange that you joined a congregation at the third raka'a of witr. Note that it is only permissible to pray it in congregation during Ramadan, as for other months there's no backup in the sunnah that the prophet () or his companions () ever offered witr in a congregation. In fact praying sunnah and nafl prayers alone and at home is the highest ...

I would have liked somebody to find a published answer somewhere but I didn't find any, as well as others who have looked into your question. There are enough aspects that speak in favour of your fast being valid: You had the intention to fast correctly at the time you had in mind. It's just a minute. Precision of time resolution in the period when the ...

Allah doesn't see your way of reciting surahs in salah, he just watches your heart, if you love allah and you offer salah for the sake of him then your salah is of high level whether you think this the weakest salah of your life. Practice surah al fatiha in nafl prayer,try to repeat it less, say alhamdu and then stop and then say lillahi and then stop and ...

You need to recite an extra surah other than Fathihah for prayers. But you dont need to do a long surah, why not a single verse from Ikhlaas or Naas. We can recite verse 2:255 but not 112:1? Both are single verse but only size differs. So if you dont have time, just recite a single line of a surah and that will be enough.

The chosen position of the Hanafi school and the position of the two companions of Abu Hanifah (RA) is that the best way to perform them is with sets of 2 rakahs each set ending in Salam. It is written in Ad-Darr Al-Mukhtar the well-known Hanafi book of fiqh: وتُكْرَهُ الزِّيادَةُ عَلى أرْبَعٍ فِي نَفْلِ النَّهارِ، وعَلى ثَمانٍ لَيْلًا بِتَسْلِيمَةٍ ...

In fact your question is a multi-question post which is of a kind that you should avoid: Your first question mainly is covered in: How to purify a carpet if I don't remember were the impurity is?: you must be in a tahir state not your bedding: This means in order to pray your body and all clothes you wear and the surface you pray on must be free from any ...

Short answer: Du'a from the qur'an if regarded or intended as du'a doesn't fall under this case. And this is agreed upon among scholars. A superficial analysis First of all the chapter "The Prohibition Of Reciting The Quran While Bowing And Prostrating" in Sahih Muslim starts with ahadith showing that among the last things the prophet () said ...

Walaikum Assalam wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuhu, Don't feel like that. It may be a trick from Shaytan. Pray Salah and ask help from Allah. Ask Allah to forgive your sins, ease your difficulties. If you don't pray you would be sinful and Shaytan will be happy. For anger problem, see this link I hope it will be helpful. May Allah ease your difficulties. Aameen

Before I answer your question let me say I was just like you. So I completely understand what you're going through. Shaytaan deceives each person in an almost unique way. But the best of his tricks is 'disappointment from Allah's forgiveness'. Allah says when you repent I forgive you. I let you repent because I want to forgive you. Allah says I forgive you ...

I'm not a scholar, so take what I say with a grain of salt. In general, according to Islam, actions are judged according to the intentions. On the authority of Ameer ul-Mu’mineen (the Commander of the Faithful), Abu Hafs `Umar ibn al-Khattab radiAllahu anhu, who said: I heard the Messenger of Allah sallAllahu alayhi wa sallam say: “Actions are but by ...

If you have doubt about whether you made a mistake, follow the feeling that is stronger. If you feel it is more likely that you made a mistake, perform sajdah sawh. Otherwise, skip it. This is for the csee where doubt arises during salah. If you follow a doubt you are unsure about repeatedly, I have heard tat this is potentially following the waswas of ...

Wa alaikum salaam I'll answer based on my knowledge of the rules within the Hanafi madhab. There are finer details you probably don't need to worry about too much, so I'll cover the high level basics. Besides Surah Fatiha, you should recite at least one long verse or three short verses in each ruku. There are details as to what long and short are, but I ...

"urine" is a najasah (impurity) which has attributes: color, odor and taste. You should only pray in clothes that have none of these attributes: Your clothes must be tahir (pure or ritually pure) as you would be after perfroming wudu' or ghusl. The same conditions fo purity apply on the peace of earth or area you are praying on: it must be tahir. ...

What this hadith signifies is that khushoo' (focus) in prayer is more important than catching the congregation or praying at the earliest time. Scholars have explained that the reason behind the instruction of the prophet ﷺ is hunger, because when you leave food to pray first you might remain constantly distracted due to your desire, and so it is better to ...

If it hinders your prayer, or may cause you an injury, you may move it. However, you cannot turn around and put it aside, you must either throw it aside or bruh it away.

A missed fard prayer can be performed immediately at any time once one recall it. There's no difference of opinion that I know of that would hinder you from offering an obligatory prayer you've missed at any moment you've recalled it: The Prophet (ﷺ) said, "If anyone forgets a prayer he should pray that prayer when he remembers it. There is no ...
