Combining the salawat as a resident prior his commute | Sh. Muhammad Hizaam 


If a man wants to travel and he isn’t able to stop in the path for the prayer, is it permissible for him to combine between Thuhr and Asr before he travels? 



There is no problem that he does that in the situation of necessity and in times of needs, relying upon the narration of Ibn Abbas that the prophet صلى الله عليه و سلم combined between Thuhr and Asr, and Between Maghrib and Isha without (due to) any fear, nor travelling. It was said to Ibn Abbas what did he (صلى الله عليه و سلم) intend with that? He said he intended not to over burden his nation.
Thus if you find a need then there is no problem to combine between Thuhr and Asr whilst being a resident, during rare situations at times of needs.

What is the ruling on honour gatherings for tulaab of Quran infront of the people | Sh. Muhammad Hizaam 

What is the ruling in regards to the one that organizes a competition to teach the people the memorization of the quran for two months, and when it cumulates he holds an honour gathering (to honour the students) in front of the people between Maghrib and Isha. Then, after Isha, they have a large feast and spend money. Is this action legislated? 

No proof has come in the Sunnah of our prophet صلى الله عليه و سلم for this action.  How many from the companions and those who followed them used to memorize the Qur’an and they did not do that

Gathering those who have finished memorizing the Quran and making them appear in front of the people is in opposition to the Sunnah and it is advised to leave it off. The prophet صلى الله عليه و سلم did not do it nor his companions. Adding to that, it is a means of cultivating the people upon the Dunyaa, and loving to be seen (by others).

Is it permissible for me to disobey them and go to the classes? | Sh. Abu Hamza Hassan Ba Shuayb

I am a beginner student of knowledge, I love seeking knowledge. I seek knowledge with a group of beginner students of knowledge at the same time. Between Maghrib And Isha every Sunday and Wednesday we have a lesson in the three fundamental principles, and on Saturday a class in Lumatul Iaatiqaad and Al Mumtia explanation of Al Ajoroomiyah with one of the students of knowledge from Dammaj and he is from Ahlus Sunnah Wal Jamaah, Salafi.
But the problem is that my family never wants me to go to this student of knowledge, with the claim that he is extreme and prohibits permissible things, so they claim. Such as the Television and other than it. Thus they don’t want me to seek knowledge with him. Is it permissible for me to disobey them and go to the classes, I don’t know what to do! 
Whilst knowing that I currently go to the classes secretly without them knowing? 
Benefit us May Allah benefit you. 
It being that you are a beginner then you are in need of these sciences, specifically that which is connected to the matters of monotheism and creed. 
Upon this it isn’t permissible for them to prevent you from learning it at the hands of the Salafi students of knowledge.
Thus be patient upon that which you are upon, seek aid from Allah and put your trust in him.

A fatwa on the absurd murder of the Russian Ambassador in Turkey | Sh.Hasan Ba Shu’aib

Shaikh Hasan Ba Shu’aib (may Allah preserve him) was asked:
Question: What is the Legislated ruling on the murder of the Russian ambassador in Turkey ? And what is the ruling on killing this ambassador as form of support for the Muslims in Syria?
Answer: “He [takes] the ruling of a disbeliever who [signed] a covenant and one who is given or has sought safety. So murdering him is considered a betrayal of the covenant due to the statement of our Prophet (may peace and blessings be upon him):
‎ من قتل نفسًا معاهدًا لم يُرِحْ رائحة الجنة
Whoever kills a Mu’aahad (one who has taken a covenant) that he will not smell the scent of Paradise
The issue is one of religion and not empty zeal/enthusiasm or a violent storm of emotion”

Is Wearing Henna Only For Married Women? – Shaikh Abdul-Muhsin al-‘Abbad

⏩ Is Wearing Henna Only For Married Women? – Shaikh Abdul-Muhsin al-‘Abbad
Question : Is using henna specifically for married women? Is this correct?
Answer : “This is not correct as is well known. No doubt women who are married have a need to beautify themselves for their husbands and there is no harm in training the young girls to wear henna. It is not a condition that beautification is only for husbands. Rather a woman can beautify using henna and use henna even if she is not married. As long as it does not lead to harm or fitnah. This is because this (henna) is from the affairs of the women”.

What is the ruling of reciting the Quran in a beautiful voice when giving the khutbahs or lectures? | Sh. Fawzan 

Sh. Al-Allamah Salih Al-Fowzan, hafidahu’Allah (may Allah preserve him), was asked, 
Q: “What is the ruling of reciting the Quran in a beautiful voice when giving the khutbahs or lectures?”
A: “Questions regarding this matter are plenty because some of the brothers recite verses beautifully in the khutbah or in reminders and this [affair] is something not known with the salaf. Because there is a difference between reciting the Quran [with tarteel] and reciting for the purpose of providing proof. Reciting the Quran is done with the rulings of recitation and recited slowly. As for reciting the [Quran] when bringing proof then it is not to be recited in a beautiful manner, rather it is recited properly without any mistakes.”

The Ruling on Ripping Apart Books Which are in the Masjid Which Contain Disbelief and Misguidance – Shaikh al-Albani

The Ruling on Ripping Apart Books Which are in the Masjid Which Contain Disbelief and Misguidance – Shaikh al-Albani
Question: “There are some books which almost have clear disbelief [in them]like Nuzhatul-Majaalis. Is it allowed to remove, for example, this book and Tabaqaat al-Kubrah and rip it apart and not leave it in the masjid? I asked you this [before] but I did not understand your answer due to the disturbance of the telephone?
Shaikh: If Tabaqaat al-Kubrah by Sha’raani is in the masjid and Nuzhatul-Majaalih it is not only allowed, but obligatory to rip them apart. Except if we assume that there is a man who is a Scholar and who is very poor and unable to purchase the likes of these copies of books from the market at their price. So the alternative to ripping it is to give it to him because he is capable of distinguishing what is in it of falsehood from the truth.
Questioner:  There are many poor students of knowledge
Shaikh: No, no. I mean he must be a Scholar
Questioner: From the Scholars who are not capable of purchasing the likes of these [books]. So then it remaining in the masjid is more deserving?
Shaikh: No, it does not remain in the masjid. It is sent to the hands of one who can distinguish [between the falsehood and truh]
Questioner: May Allah bless you”

Notes On “Purifying The Impurities” – Imaam Abu Haneefah, Imam Ahmad Bin Hanbal, Shaykh Al-Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah, Shaykh Abdur-Rahmaan As-Sa’dee, Shaykh Ibn Uthaymeen

Class Three Notes, Chapter: “In Regards To Purifying The Impurities”

From the benefits in this chapter:

That which is impure is purified by washing it until the impure substance no longer remains, neither its colour, smell, or taste.

The origin in purifying is to use water.

But water isn’t specified in the cleaning of impurities. That is because the impurity is present so long as the impure substance is present. If this impure substance is removed, then the impurity is removed, and that may occur with other than water as well.

For this reason, Imam Abu Haneefah, Abu Yusuf, and in one report from Ahmad took the opinion that the impurity is removed with any pure liquid, and with anything which makes the impure substance go away. They used as proof the following narration of Aisha رضي الله عنها in al Bukhaari:

“None of us had more than a single garment and we used to have our menses while wearing it. Whenever it got soiled with blood of menses, we used to apply saliva to the blood spot and rub off the blood with our nails”

This stance is that which Shaykhul Islaam Ibn Taymiyah, Imam As Saadi and Imam Al Uthaymeen deemed correct.

Does one have to have an intention to remove impurities? No, it’s not a condition to have an intention. That which clarifies that is what Shaykh Al Uthaymeen mentioned in Fatawaa Nur Alad Darb and elsewhere. The meaning of his speech is:

“If a man were to lay out his Thawb on the roof and thus rain came down and purified it, then it is pure because it is not a condition for the removal of impurities to have an intention for it”

How is water in which its characteristics have changed purified?

Shaykh Al Bassam mentions [not translated word for word 1/138 of Tawdeehul Ahkaam] from the Council of the Major scholars some of the following ways:

  1. By the impurity ceasing on its own
  2. By adding pure water to it until the impurity ceases
  3. Its impurity is removed due to [the passing of] a long time period
  4. The affect of the Sun on it which removes its impurity
  5. Wind passing on it

Or similar to that.

From the methods are the recent methods of purifying water in which different chemicals and the likes are used to purify this water. Then it is pure so long as it is purified and cleaned completely and returns to its original state and nothing from the impurities which made it impure remain (ie. in smell, taste, or colour).

They mention also it is ok to also drink this water so long as there are no harms in regards to one’s health due to drinking it.He mentions from ‎مجلس المجمع الفقهي الاسلامي لرابطة العالم الاسلامي that this cleaning is done in four stages:

  1. Deposition
  2. Ventilation
  3. Killing germs
  4. Sterilizing it with chlorine


If some water drops on a person’s Thawb and he doesn’t know whether it is pure or not, does he ask regarding it?

Shaykhul Islaam said:

It’s not obligatory to wash it rather not even recommended upon the correct stance and similarly it isn’t recommended to ask regarding it upon the correct stance. As for purifying the saliva of the dog, then we mentioned it in the previous class that one washes it seven times, the first time [being] with sand.

These are some benefits, Allah knows best.
