The Manner of Praying After the Appointed Time 

Ṣalāh that is performed after its appointed time should be performed in the same manner as if it was performed at its proper time. This is because the performance of any act of worship after its appointed time should mirror performance at its appointed time. This is a well-known judicial rule. In consideration of this, if one was to perform a night prayer in the daytime, he would recite aloud as if he was praying in the night. Likewise, if he was to perform a daytime prayer in the night, he should recite quietly. The evidence for this is the following: The saying of the Messenger (صلى الله...

The Culture of Arrogance and Entitlement That May Befool the Young Student

[Q]: What is your advice for those who belittle their elders in age? For example, they belittle a man who is upon the sunnah for thirty or fourty years but he does not know the Arabic language and he does not know from the Qurʾān except a little.

[A]: If an Englishman, a Frenchman, or an American who does not comprehend the Arabic language thereafter acknowledges...

You are responsible for clarifying the error which they have in order that they may repent from it, and in order that others may be warned against them. As for if you were to mention their good...

Existence of the Creator: Using the World Itself as Evidence to Refute the Agnostics

Imām ʿAbd al-Raḥmān ibn Nāṣir al-Saʿdī (d. 1413 AH) said: A group of agnostics once gathered in front of one of the scholars of Islām—I believe it was Abū Ḥanīfah—they said to him: “What is the evidence of the existence of the Creator?” He replied: “Leave me as my mind is currently busy with a strange matter.” They said: “What is this matter?” He replied: “News has reached me that in the ocean, there is a massive ship laden with amazing treasures whose ingress and egress occurs without anyone physically driving it, or caring for the contents of its hull.” They said to him: “Are you crazy?” He...
