If you forgot to pray the previous salaat, join the salaat with the intention of the previous salaat | Sh. Uthaymeen

قال الشيخ العثيمين:

إذا دخلت المسجد وصلاة العشاء مقامة وتذكرت أنك لم تصل المغرب

فتدخل مع الجماعة بنية المغرب وإذا قام الإمام للركعة الرابعة

فتجلس أنت في الثالثة وتنتظر الإمام يسلم وتسلم


Shaykh Uthaymeen رحمه الله said:

When you enter the Masjid during the standing of salaatul Ishaa and you remember that you didn’t pray Maghrib, join and pray with the congregation with the intention of (praying) Maghrib. Then when the Imam stands for the fourth rakk’at, you sit from the third (rakk’at) and wait until the Imam finishes, and you finish with him.

ويجوز أن تسلم بعد الثالثة ثم تدخل مع الإمام فيما

بقي من صلاة

And it is permissible that you conclude the salaat after the third (rakk’at) then join with the Imam from what is remaining from the salaat.

Shaykh Muhammad Hizaam حفظه الله | Making du’aa within sujood in a language other than Arabic

Ash-Shaykh Muhammad bin Hizaam was asked the following question,

‎سؤال: هل يجوز الدعاء في السجود بغير اللغة العربية كالصومالية لمن لم يحسن اللغة العربية؟

Question: Is the du’aa in prostration permissible in other than the Arabic Language, like Somali for the one who isn’t proficient in the Arabic Language?

‎الجواب: نعم. يجوز الدعاء بذلك ولكن التسبيح

‎ يسبح باللغة العربية سبحان ربي الأعلى فهو سهل وليس فيه مشقة يسبح باللغة العربية ثم إذا أراد أن يدعوا دعا بلغته التي يستطيع أن يدعوا بها, فلا بأس عليه في ذلك .

Answer: Yes, the du’aa (of another language within prostration) is permissible, however the tasbeeh is made in the Arabic Language (i.e “Subhana Rabiyal’Alaa”), for this is easy and isn’t difficult – He makes Tasbih in the Arabic Language. Then if he wants to make du’aa in his language which he is able to -he makes du’aa in it. So, there is nothing wrong upon him in that.

If somebody were to meet a king | Sh. Uthaymeen (Benefit of salat) 

_Shaykh Al Uthaymeen رحمه الله mentioned:_
If somebody were to meet with a king five times a day, it would be considered from his virtues and he would become happy with that. He would say “Every day I sit with the king five times a day” 
As for you, you converse with the king of all kings Aza Wa Jal, at least five times in a day, then why don’t you become happy with that? 
Praise Allah upon this bounty and establish the prayer!!

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.

The scholars have said: it is disliked that you give the first and second tasleems along with your imam | Sh.Uthaymeen rahimahullah 

قال الشيخ ابن عثيمين رحمه الله:
قال العلماء: يكره أن تسلم مع إمامك التسليمة الأولى والثانية، وأما إذا سلمت التسليمة الأولى بعد التسليمة الأولى، والتسليمة الثانية بعد التسليمة الثانية فإن هذا لا بأس به، لكن الأفضل أن لا تسلم إلا بعد التسليمتين.

Sheikh Uthaymeen may Allah have mercy on him said: 
The scholars have said: it is disliked that you give the first and second tasleems along with your imam, but as for if you give the first tasleem after (the imam gives his) first tasleem and you give the second tasleem after (the imam gives his) second tasleem then there is nothing wrong with this, but what is better/preferable is that you do not give tasleem except after (the imam gives) the two tasleems

What do You do if You are Doubtful Whether You Made One or Two Prostrations in a Rak’ah? – Shaikh Bin Baz

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم 
⏩ What do You do if You are Doubtful Whether You Made One or Two Prostrations in a Rak’ah? – Shaikh Bin Baz
Question : A man is doubtful in his prayer in any rak’ah. He does not know if he made one or two prostrations. What is required from him? Does he make the prostration of forgetfulness? And when is this prostration of forgetfulness performed in this situation: is it before or after the Tasleem? What do you advise the one who has a lot of doubts and satanic whispers in his prayer? May Allah reward you
Answer : “If his doubt arises after the prayer, that is: after the Tasleem (salutations), this the doubt arises, then in this case, his prayer is valid and there is no prostration of forgetfulness. As for if the doubt was in the prayer, then he does the prostration and builds on certainty. If he is doubtful whether he performed one or two prostrations, then he performs the second prostration, whether it be the first, second, third, or fourth rak’ah. He does the prostration of forgetfulness before the Tasleem. If he prostrates after the tasleem, then there is no harm, but prostrating before the tasleem is better.
As for if his doubt is after the prayer and after he finished, then the doubt arises, then this is from satanic whispers. Do not turn towards it. Doubt after prayer does not affect [it]”

Holding the mushaf in Taraaweeh 

Holding the Mushaf In the Taraweeh
It is allowed for the Imam to hold the mushaf while in Taraweeh.
The proof for that is the following narration:
 وكانت عائشة يؤمها عبدها ذكوان من المصحف 
Aisha (may Allah be pleased with her) used to be led in prayer by her servant Dhakwaan from a Mushaf [Reported by Bukhari in Mu’allaq form. Reported with a connected chain by Ibn Abi Dawood in Kitab al-Masaahif (no. 792) and others. The checker of the book, al-Waa’idh, graded it Saheeh (pg. 657)]
While it is allowed, it is better for him to recite from what he has memorized even if he repeats it again and again.
 عَنْ سَعِيدِ بْنِ الْمُسَيِّبِ «أَنَّهُ كَانَ يَكْرَهُ أَنْ يَقْرَأَ الرَّجُلُ فِي الْمُصْحَفِ فِي صَلَاتِهِ إِذَا كَانَ مَعَهُ مَا يَقُومُ بِهِ لَيْلَهُ، يُكَرِّرُهُ أَحَبُّ إِلَيَّ
On the authority of Sa’eed al-Musayyib rahimahullah who said: that he disliked that a man read from the Mushaf in the prayer if he has [memorized] what he can recite in the night prayer. Repeating [what he has already memorized] is more beloved to me”
[Reported by Ibn Abi Dawood (no. 814) in Kitab al-Masaahif and others. The checker of the book, al-Waa’idh, graded it Saheeh Li Gharihi (pg. 663)]
This is because it is closer to the Sunnah of the Prophet (ﷺ) and decreases the movements needed when putting the Mushaf down and carrying it again.
As for the one behind the Imam, it is not allowed for him/her to hold the mushaf. The Scholars have ruled against it. The fatwa of Shaikh Bin Baz rahimahullah on this issue can be seen here: http://alifta.com/Search/ResultDetails.aspx?languagename=en&lang=en&view=result&fatwaNum=&FatwaNumID=&ID=1898&searchScope=14&SearchScopeLevels1=&SearchScopeLevels2=&highLight=1&SearchType=exact&SearchMoesar=false&bookID=&LeftVal=0&RightVal=0&simple=&SearchCriteria=allwords&PagePath=&siteSection=1&searchkeyword=104111108100105110103#firstKeyWordFound
The only exception is for the one who is correcting the Imam.
The proof is:
كان أنس يصلي وغلامه يمسك المصحف خلفه فإذا تعايا في آية فتح عليه
Anas ibn Malik radiallahu anhu used to pray and his servant used to hold the Mushaf behind him. If he got stuck in a verse, he used to correct him”
[Reported in Musannaf Ibn Abi Shaybah with a Saheeh chain]
