The Issue of Minarets upon the Mosques

I did not come across that which clearly shows that the prophetic adhān was on the minaret, except that which preceded in the ḥadīth that it was above the entrance of the masjid. So from what is apparent, is that it (the adhān) was called upon the roof, above the entrance. And what supports this claim from that which is well-known is that Bilāl, the one who would call the prophetic adhān on the day of Jumuʿah, had something to climb upon in order to call the adhān. Shaykh Muḥammad Naṣir al-Dīn al-AlbānīOur Shaykh mentioned from al-Shāṭibī (in al-Iʿtisām), and those that quote from them tha…

Shaykh ʿUbayd al-Jābirī Warns Against Anwar al-Awlaki [Q]: The praise is for Allāh, and may the peace and salutations of Allāh be upon the Messenger of Allāh and upon his Family and his Companions and upon those who follow the guidance. To proceed: So these are some of the statements of one of the duʿāt (callers), his name is Anwar al-Awlaki.  You will find these statements on his official website. We present them to the noble Shaykh ʿUbayd Ibn ʿAbdillāh al-Jābirī – (may Allāh preserve him) – so that he may comment upon them so we can then spread the answers and the comments among the bro…

The Ruling on Translating Khuṭbahs into Other Languages

If the aim of conveying knowledge and Islamic teaching to the people can only be achieved among non-Arabs by translating the khuṭbahs into their languages, then the view that it is permissible to translate the khuṭbah into the prevalent language of the audience so that they may understand what is being said takes precedence and should be followed, especially if not translating the khuṭbahs will lead to conflicts and arguments. Undoubtedly translating the khuṭbah in such a case becomes essential to serve the people’s interests and avoid mischief. Al-ʿAllāmah ʿAbd al-ʿAzīz ibn ʿAbdullāh ibn …

Any Proof from the Qurʾān for Wiping Over Footwear (as part of Wūḍūʿ)?

It has been said that the recitation of “wa arjulikum” refers specifically to wiping over them (the feet), but that is only when they are covered by socks. We take this specification from the Messenger of Allāh (may Allāh raise his rank and grant him peace), since it has not been authentically reported that he ever wiped over his feet without wearing socks. Thus, he showed by his example when the foot is to be washed and when it is to be wiped over. This is (a) good (understanding)… Shaykh Mūsá Richardson”O you who believe!  When you stand for prayer, then wash your faces and your h…

This Dunyā Not Exceeding 7000 Years?

And from these [guidelines] is that the report contraḍīcts explicit passages of the Qurʾān, like the ḥadīth about the length of the dunyā, that it is 7000 years, and that we are in the seventh thousand. This is from the most obvious of lies, since had it been authentic, everyone would know that there can only remain 251 years! Ibn al-Qayyim likely wrote this around the year 749 A Questioner Stated: Al-Ḥākim & al-Tirmidhī ḥadīth concerning jahanamiyyūn (those who go to fire but are Muslim). They will be in it like the extent of this world from the time it was created until the time it e…

Usage of Fabricated Aḥadīth/Athar for Exhortations

The one who finds fault with some of the people of Ḥadīth and the people of the Jamāʿah, that they speak with excessive, loaded words, they are either finding fault with them based on insufficient knowledge or insufficient understanding. As for the first one [insufficient knowledge], then it is that they use as proofs ḍaʿīf or mawdhūʿ narrations, or āthār [reports from other than the Prophet, ﷺ], that are not fit to be used as proofs. As for the second one [insufficient understanding], then it is that they do not understand the authentic narrations. Shaykh al-Islām[Q]: “Isn’t a mawḍūʿ…

Prostrating all Seven Parts of the Body

Sujūd is a rukn (pillar) of the prayer, meaning that if a capable person does not perform it, whether he left it intentionally or unintentionally the prayer would be invalid. If he did not perform a pillar unintentionally (out of forgetfulness for example), then he returns back to that position when he remembers and repeats what came after it in the prayer, completing it fully, and then adds two sajdahs at the end called sajdah al-sahw, prostrations made due to forgetfulness. Shaykh Mūsá RichardsonAl-salāmu ʿAlaykum Shaykh Ibn ʿUthaymīn said: It is not permissible for a worshipper to lif…

“Ādam supplicated: O Allāh, By the Haqq (Right/Status) of Muḥammad, Forgive Me…?”

Had it not been for Muḥammad, I would not have created you. Rather, Allāh had created Ādam, and all of his decendants, to worship Him as He has made clear in Sūrah al-Dhāriyāt, what means: ‘And I have not created the jinn nor mankind but to worship Me.’ Duʿāʾ of Ādam (ʿalyahi al-salām)In regard to my question, story of Ādam ʿalayhi salām. People say that when Ādam ʿalayhi salām made a mistake he saw the name of Muḥammad ṣallallāhu ʿalayh wa sallam  in sky(ie some where in sky that i dont know properly) and Ādam ʿalayhi salām took wasilah of same name i.e. Mohammed [ṣallallāhu ʿalayhi …
