You may say Zuhr and Asr prayer togather and also Maghrib and Esha togather to avoid unnecessary hardship
Ibn 'Abbas reported:
"The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) observed the noon and afternoon prayers together, and the sunset and Isha' prayers together without being in a state of fear or in a state of journey." -Saheeh Muslim
First to know is that there are levels for Mujtahids, what we are talking about here is the "Unlimited Mujtahid" (Mujtahid Motlak المجتهد المطلق), which is the highest level.
There is a quote of Imam Shafei (may Allah be merciful to his majesty) that describes who can derive fatwas, i.e, who is a qualified mujtahid:
قال الشافعي: لا يحل لأحد أن يفتي في ...
You may (it is permissible to) pray Dhur and Asr together even if you are not on travel. You can also pray Maghrib and Isha' together if you wish even if you are not traveling.
The Prophet used to make Dhur and asr together, and Maghrib and Isha'
Together in Madinah when there was no danger, rain, or travel.
And that is by making Dhuhr and ...
The Prophet (Salallahu 'Alaihi wa sallam) said:
"Backbiting is saying about your brother that which he dislikes."
So the saying of the Prophet (Salallahu 'alaihi wassalam) is general and it can be applied whether you are alone or with someone. Therefore, mentioning what your brother dislikes while you are alone is considered backbiting which is ...
Iman was defined by the Holy Prophet (pbuh) as:
■ That you affirm your faith in Allah,
■ in His Angels,
■ in His Books,
■ in His Apostles,
■ in the Day of Judgment, and
■ you affirm your faith in the Divine Decree about good and evil.
So Bases of Eemaan are six
Believe in Allah, Tawheed
Combining Zuhr Asr doesn't mean that you pray 8 rakaat together in one go but it means that we finish 4 rakaat Zuhr first then we start 4 rakaat of Asr.
Muslims also combine the prayers on Hajj.
It is a relaxation given by the islam and prophet p.b.u.h. so why not avail it.
Its a paraphrased translation from Arabic to French to English (see preface), and an old one at that (1914), so you probably shouldn't read too much into the choice of words.
The Original arabic text in the Minhaj is:
وإذا قصد نكاحها سن نظره إليها قبل الخطبة وإن لم تأذن وله تكرير نظره
ولا ينظر غير الوجه والكفين

It simply means before asking for her hand or asking her wali for the right to marry her or simply making a marriage proposal.
Which means when a man intends to marry a girl -and before any engagement- he is allowed to take a look at some parts of her body or her shape even without her knowledge.
Firstly I would like to clarify that there are things in the sunnah which are not in the Quran, and they are authentically reported, and it is required to accept it, for the Sunnah is revelation like the Quran. And the Authentic Ahadeeth never contradict the Quran, and lastly the Quran is in need of the sunnah for it explains it, while the Sunnah is not in ...
There is a quote which I like to live by:
Righteous people don't even backbite in their thoughts
And Backbiting is not merely talking to other people about the bad habits or revealing sins of others. Backbiting could even maybe praising someone to an extent - backbiting is something that if the person hears and they would not like it; maybe it would hurt ...
(A short answer)
The scholars have mentioned that the person must be knowledgeble in five categories .
Knowledge of the Sharī’ah (Islāmic Legislation)
It includes -
Knowledge of the Qur’ān and its sciences
Knowledge of the Hadīth and its sciences
Knowledge of the consensus and issues of difference (of opinions)
Knowledge of the fundamentals of ...
Summary: The tafsir is consistent with the technical age of puberty, but Shafi'i sources describe prepubescent marriage of a girl as legal when agreed to by her father of paternal grandfather.
The place to look is The Reliance of the Traveller, The Classic Manual of Islamic Sacred Law 'Umdat al-Salik, by Ahmad ibn Naqib al-Misri (translated by Nuh Ha Mim ...
All perfect praise be to Allah
This answer might not fully answer your question, but i will try to address the problem in general.
As basics we all know Islam is based on authentic references in form of Quran/hadees/aasaar etc. If anyone collects them, analyzes them, understands them and works hard on them to provides us with something easy to understand ...
I have not come across any reference that has the quote you provided in your question by Imam Al-Shafi'i. Nonetheless, Ibn Hajar al-Haytami, a major figure in the Shafi'i school of jurisprudence, said in Al-Fatawa Al-Fiqhiyya Al-Kubra, Vol. 3, pp. 34-35:
والسنة في حق الرجل أن يستر جميع بدنه على الوجه المشروع فيه فهو مطلوب بذلك . لأجل الامتثال ثم العمامة ...
There's a perfect Fatwa here, in arabic. I'll try to conclude in the next points:
The amount of splashed urine is judged as negligible unless you certainly know it is not. Please stop your waswasa.
The amount of wet cloth that is not negligible and should be washed is the area of you little finger tip. A drop or two will not be that big.
If you `saw' ...
Basically, what does a Muslim do if he breaks his wudu during salah in congregation?
I assume you already heard a sound or smelled something as suggested by the link you posted in your question....
So we have 2 cases here:
-You are the Imam.
-You are praying behind someoneelse.
In both cases, If you lose your wudu while praying then you should stop ...
There's a wonderful explanation in Tafseer Ibn Kathir. The translation is below, from qtafsir. I deleted the Arabic text because I didn't want to accidentally spread distorted Quran verses (I can't read arabic and perhaps the text is distorted by copy-pasting). For reference, it is the tafsir of Quran 76:29-31. There's also a more general explanation about ...
