Salam, my brother. There are certain conditions for the shortened prayer. First of all I will give a reference from Quran about shortened prayers as: Translation: "And when you travel throughout the land, there is no blame upon you for shortening the prayer, [especially] if you fear that those who disbelieve may disrupt [or attack] you. Indeed, the ...

No people are born the same way. Allah gives different tests to different people. Most of the Islamic rules and regulations which are not clearly written out in the Quran or hadith were designed for the majority. You could well be in the outlier of 0.01% (which is still 1000 in a million) which the average doesn't apply to. We can reasonably assume that ...

Worship and safar/travelling First note that this applies only for two out of three kinds of travel: travel for obedience (like hajj, Jihad, visiting relatives or a sick person etc.) and an allowed travel (like for vacancy) and doesn't apply for travelling for disobedience! Here shortly a list -without details- of travelling related easements: shortening ...

It is not allowed to combine more than two prayers together, and the prayers combined can only be: Dhuhr and 'asr, either during the time of dhuhr (taqdīm) or 'asr (ta'khīr), or Maghrib and 'ishā', either during the time of maghrib (taqdīm) or 'ishā' (ta'khīr). The rule is to pray every prayer in its specific time: إِنَّ الصَّلَاةَ كَانَتْ عَلَى ...

Well a friend of mine is Hanafi and he told me that abu Hanifa used to say that one should take any opportunity Allah gives you. This would mean you can pray Dohr and Assr as Jama' (joined- at the same time but as two different prayers) and qassr (shortened) (Dohr if you are still in your city should be done normally 4 Raka' and Assr 2 raka') and either you ...

I am going to answer your question logically. When you are praying, your maximum attention (if not all) should be towards your Salah. So when I am praying: can I watch TV? NO can I have a phone conversation? NO can I make a sandwich? NO can I wash dishes? NO can I iron my clothes? NO can I look outside the window and appreciate how Allah has created wind ...

Standing is an essential part of prayer. But if one can't stand and pray, then they're permitted to sit and pray, and if that's not possible, then laying on the side or whatever is also allowed. The Prophet is reported to have said: "Pray standing and if you can't, pray sitting and if you cannot do even that, then pray Lying on your side." It's an ...

(Shia View) Traveler cannot fast and should reduce the Rak'ats in Zuhr, Asr and Isha prayers, that is, he should perform two Rak'ats instead of four. The conditions by which one is called a "traveler" in Fiqh have been explained in the following link: who is a Musafir? If a fasting person travels after Zuhr, he should complete his fast. If a fasting ...

There is absolutely no harm if one recites the Glorious Quran while wearing his shoes, whether from memory or reading from a book. If the shoes are pure from being in contact with impurities, it is permissible to even offer one’s prayer while wearing them. Explanation: Without Wudu It is haram to touch the Quran without wudu. The centrality of sound ...

In the name of Allah, the most compassionate, the most merciful According to the fatwa of Grand Ayatollah Khamanei, you ought to say your prayers completely (not Qasr) in case that your trip (intention) takes long at least ten days (or more). Then at the mentioned condition as you said “I am visiting the UK and am proposed to stay for 6 months. Is praying ...

If you plan to travel to your destination and remain there for less than 15 days then you must pray the shorten versions of salah as you are considered a musafir (passenger based on Islamic explanation). As you are intending on remaining at your destination for 6 months then you must pray the full salah. Source: islamqa.org/hanafi/qibla-hanafi/37158

Yes, it is permissible for Muslims to eat Kosher meat. Allah says in the Quran (interpretation of the meaning): Made lawful to you this day are At-Tayyibat [all kinds of Halal (lawful) foods, which Allah has made lawful (meat of slaughtered eatable animals, etc., milk products, fats, vegetables and fruits, etc.). The food (slaughtered cattle, eatable ...

There are new arguments by few scholars. Ahadith recall Muhammad performing ablution with nabidh (alcohol). Some argue that alcohols may have been used as medicines, disinfectants or santisiers in his days. Quran mentions that alcohols have both some benefits and side effects (let me return with sura number). Many doctors including Muslims use medicinal ...

Based on my research, presumably there does seem to be the necessity of much/diverse illustrations (from different aspects) in order to present a complete/adequate response, but I strive to answer (at least by having a short explaining regarding an aspect of …, anyhow. From the viewpoint of Shia scholars (except a minor group of them), the sources of Fiqh is ...

According to what I perceived about the question (correct me please, if I am wrong), the answer briefly can be so: The significant remarkable point (at least based on Shia-Islam's view, but I am not aware of Sunni-Islam's view) is as follows: A traveler must not fast, and actually it is haram (forbidden) for a traveler to fast -in the trip-, and actually (...

The wording of the Quran is to start the fast at dawn and to break it at sunset, so scholars derive that the actual duration in hours is irrelevant and one should act according to what one observes in the place they are at that point in time. Quran 2:187 ... And eat and drink until the white thread of dawn becomes distinct to you from the black thread [...

Travelling to Makkah/Madina needs an international passport and a valid visa for 'Umrah'. Travelling to any other city is just like an ordinary international city. Once you apply for the Umrah visa, the consulate would raise a flag due to your name. At this point, if you are able to convince the officer then you can travel.

Yes. However it is not an unconditional and perpetual exception for every journey she ever undertakes. Rather it refers only to the journey which is her migration from Dar al-Harb to Dar al-Islam. She is permitted \ obligated to escape without impediments such as the absence of a mahram or being in the state of iddah. قال البغوي لم يختلفوا في أنه ليس للمرأة ...

If there's no prayer room available, I just find the quietest spot available and pray. I use a large handkerchief to pray on (placing it diagonally), which is not too cumbersome to carry around. I use whatever luggage I'm carrying as a sutrah. People just walk past and ignore me (unless they're Muslim, then they smile at me). This question How does one ...

I am not sure I understand your question. You would do wudu the same way you normally do it. You would find a place to stop the car, take some water and do wudu. You may carry water bottles with you in the car, or you may look for a gas-station etc. In Muslim countries you can often easily find roadside mosques which would have the relevant facilities.

About the qada' (qaza) this is clear according to the Verse 185 in surat al-Baqara [2:185] Ramadan is the month in which the Qur'an was sent down : this Book is a perfect guidance for mankind and consists of clear teachings which show the right way and are a criterion of Truth and falsehood. Therefore from now on whoever witnesses it, it is ...

A musafir (traveler) is one who leaves the city limits of his/her hometown intending a journey of 48 miles or greater. This is the opinion of the vast majority of Islamic scholars and has been deduced from several verses, hadiths, and scenarios from the life of the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) and his companions.

Prayer is between you and Allah (GOD) so it is very personal. You can pray anytime anywhere without making external gestures that would attract or distract others. Pray and communicate with Allah anywhere as HE is all knowing of your situation.

This is feasible for the marriage to be done far from each other but I am not sure regarding the mentioned matter which you asked. Initially seemingly this is possible to use the lawyer (proxy) for talaq (divorce). Secondly I have heard that this is possible solely for men that without being present … but I am not certain regarding the mentioned matter. So, ...

Once an obligation is fulfilled, it is lifted from you. You can join in the prayer if you wish as a nafl prayer, but it's your choice. As for travelling the other way, you are a traveller and the obligation is lifted anyway.

The exemption is not for a total distance of 80 kms within a city, but for a radius of that distance from one's city, i.e. real travel. You are permitted to break your fast once you leave your city limits starting out on a journey intending a travel outside that radius. Ibn Taymiyyah (rh) has an interesting take on this where he says it counts as travel if ...
