The Ruling of Facing the Qiblah or Turning One’s Back to It Whilst Answering the Call of Nature

The General Impermissibility of Facing the Qiblah or Turning One’s Back to It When Answering the Call of Nature It is ḥarām [according to the ḥanbalī madh`hab] to face the qiblah or turn one’s back to it [when answering the call of nature]. [The evidence for this] is the ḥadīth narrated by Abū Ayyūb (رضي الله عنه) that the Prophet (ﷺ) said: ‘Do not face the qiblah or turn your backs to it while urinating or defecating. Rather, face the east or the west.’ Abū Ayyūb said: ‘When we came to al-Shām1, we found the lavatories built facing the Kaʿbah. So we used to turn away from them, and ask All…

The Scholars Are the Awliyāʾ (Allies) of Allāh, Whoever Attacks Them Is Imbecilic

Imām Abd al-Raḥmān ibn Nāṣir al-Saʿdī (d. 1376 AH) mentioned: Some of the pious predecessors said: ​ “If the scholars [of Islām] are not from among the awliyāʾ [close friends and allies] of Allāh, then I do not know who is.” 1 [The speaker of this statement] has spoken the truth, may Allāh have mercy on him. For, truly, close allyship with Allāh the Most High, is proportional to one’s execution of His commands.

Allāh said: يَا بُنَيَّ لَا تَقْصُصْ رُؤْيَاكَ عَلَىٰ إِخْوَتِكَ فَيَكِيدُوا لَكَ كَيْدًا ۖ “O my son, do not relate your vision to your brothers or they will contrive against you a plan.” [Yūsuf, 12:5] Imām ʿAbd al-Raḥmān ibn Nāṣir al-Saʿdī (d. 1376 AH) comments:  From [among the benefits of the story of Prophet Yūsuf (عليه السلام)] is that it is from the prudence of a slave [of Allāh] that—should he choose to engage in an action—he must thoroughly examine it from all angles, such that he has taken into account all possibilities.  The cautiousness exhibited here [manifests itse…

Shaykh Ḥammūd al-Tuwayjirī (d. 1413 AH) said: [Muhammad Aslam al-Pakistānī] said: Zakariyyā al-Kandahlawī [one of the tablīghī leaders] claimed that Shaykh1 ʿAbd al-Qādir [Rayfūrī] [another tablīghgī leader] used to love hearing him recite the Qurʾān, except that he was not able to do so before dying. Zakariyyā said: ‘So I went to his grave so I could recite for him. This way he could hear me while dead as he was not able to while alive [before passing].
