Asalam o alikum.. i want to ask that what happened to Aleppo is occurring to many other islamic territories. I want to ask as being a young blood of my umma , what should i do ?? Do i have to take on the guns and fight .?? Does there is any other way in which i can help this islamic sisters and brothers??

Wa alaykum al-salam. The Syrian people are not asking you to take up guns and fight. They do not need more people. In fact, many will tell you that foreign fighters with ISIS and those with Iran and Hezbollah have only created more issues in the country. What they want is for you to use your voice to bring attention to their plight. To not forget them when they are no longer in the news. To find ways to support organizations (that I have mentioned elsewhere) that are bringing relief to the population. To advocate for your countries to take in more of their people that are now homeless and without a country. Their refugees. The foreigners making the greatest impact in Syria are the ones that go there to provide medical care, to report on what is happening, to provide services to the people. You have a responsibility to use the opportunities that you have been given to make positive contributions in the world. If your politicians won’t listen to you then take part in the political process and become the politician. If that is not possible in your country then find other ways to engage civil society. Build up your voice so that it is heard. And finally, do not despair. Have faith. Place your trust in the Most High. Stay woke.

(2) I feel ashamed at myself. I only find Allah only in a hard times. Now that I'm really lost and down, I wanted to pray. How stupid is me? 😭😭.

Wa alaykum salam wa rahmatullah wa barakaatuh,

First, I wanna apologise for replying so late. I’ve been having much in my life lately. May Allah forgive me.

Have in mind that we all, from time to time, doubt Allah. Sometimes we’re lost and don’t know what we’re doing with our lives, but the important thing is that we turn to our Lord and make tawbah.

Those feelings of doubt are temporary. If you sincerely ask Allah to renew the faith in your heart, then know for sure that He will do that. When you try to be better for His sake, He will make you better.

Allah is not unfair, even if you feel like He is, we don’t know Allah’s wisdom and if we were to know His ways of dealing with our matters, our hearts would melt out of love for Him. Maybe Allah wants you to go an extra mile, maybe He has something better for you in store than all of that. We fall short, trust me, we fall short, and wallah this is first and foremost to myself.

You think that having a job and good results is everything? Wallah it’s not. Having a strong connection with Allah, azza wa jal, is everything. All that success will come when you befriend Allah, and it will come without you even asking for it. Trust me.

This life is full of problems and is not as perfect as we want it to be. These problems, trials of this world may lead us to think that God is unkind or unfair. People usually say what kind of a God lets people die in a tsunami or why God did this to us when we don’t like this and that.

Allah is not unfair nor is He unkind. This world is like an exam for each one of us. Just like we give exams in schools and colleges – we may find the exam hard and difficult but that does not mean that the examiner is unkind. The exam is just to test our skills and abilities to award us accordingly. We need to pass many exams to become successful in this world and to have a good career and a job.

It’s the same with this life, this entire life is a test- so we will have to work really hard just like we work hard to pass our school exams. Allah says in the Qur’ān :

“Be sure we shall test you with something of fear and hunger, some loss in goods or lives or the fruits (of your toil), but give glad tidings to those who patiently persevere,” (Qur’ān, 2:155)

Even the wealth and possessions given to a person are a trial for him or her. If someone is rich, that doesn’t mean that Allah is happy with such a person and therefore has bestowed him with wealth.

I’m glad you wanna change yourself and turn back to Allah. Alhamdulillah.

I haven’t found any websites, unfortunately, but I found a really good, and step by step video. They go through all salahs, I hope you can benefit from it, in shaa Allah.

If anyone knows any good websites on how to learn how to pray then let me know in shaa Allah.

Don’t feel ashamed, you’re trying to better yourself and that’s what’s most important. We all tend to find Allah in hard times and forget to turn to Him in good times, that’s our nature, but we should strive to be better in shaa Allah. May Allah guide us to the straight path and have mercy on us all. Allahuma ameen.

I’ll pray for you in shaa Allah.

Salam alaykum I was born a muslim but only now have I started really falling in love with my religion. I want to know if there is anyways lf making up for a missed prayer since I work the whole day And can't pray the Asr prayer?

Wa Alaykum as-Salaam!

Masha'Allah! Your message made me really happy. May Allah make your path easy. Ameen

Keep pushing insha'Allah. Ask Allah to find a way for you so you pray all your salah on time. Keep making dua. Try to find a way. Do all you can. If there is no way for you to pray Asr on time, make it up when you get home. But please remember that salah has to be prayed on time. I see you are starting to practice now so give it some time until you get used to it insha'Allah. Dont get discouraged. Allah is with you

And Allah knows best

anonymous asked:

As salam alaykum ukhty, could you please give me an advice? I live with my parents (muslims) and my dad drinks alcohol almost everyday, and it is even worse on the week-end, I can hear him opening his can of beer and this is the worst ever, I often burst in tears because I am so disgusted to live in a house where there is so much alcohol. I can't tell him anything, I tried in the past, but he insults me and tells wrong things about Islam. What should I do ? Maybe tell my mom?

و علیك السلام و رحمة الله و بؤكاته

I hope you are in the best of health and Imaan sis. May Allah be pleased with you because of your concern for your father. It shows that you care about his akhirah, so may Allah have mercy on you on the Day when it is only through His Mercy that a believer will enter His Paradise.

Know that even though your father drinks alcohol, it’s not permissable for you to treat him badly or to severe ties with him.

Treat him with utmost kindness, tell him your fear for him and your love for him, because as a father, he has rights and because, maybe, just maybe, through your good treatment towards him, it may spark fear in his heart of Allah and a willingness to give up his sin.

Have patience my dear, continue to give him sincere naseehah with gentleness, and make du'a for him. Especially in the times of acceptence: during rainfall, between the adhaan and iqaamah, at the last thind part of the night, on Wednesdays after Zuhr, and on Fridays.

And don’t ever stop.

Don’t stop making du'a. Your du'as are like a seed that you plant and water so it grows into a beautiful flower. Don’t you see how it wilts and dies when you stop watering it? In the same way, when you give up making du'a, the response to that du'a also dies.

Don’t lose hope sis. Even if you don’t see results straight away. Even if it pains you to see your father drinking. Even if he insults you when you try to give him naseehah. Know that your patience towards your father is a type of jihaad, and Allah will reward you for it. If not in this world, then most definitely in the Hereafter, from His treasures of treasures.

Allah will never allow your du'as to be lost or your sincerity to go to waste.

May Allah guide your father and bring him out of the darkness into the light. May He fill His heart with light and forgive him.

Salam alaykum,
It’s kind of embarrassing to tell, but I struggle with praying my prayers on time - especially fajr. There was a time when I was very consequent with my religion but at the moment I am a terrible muslim. I have also no patience and get angry very quick, especially with my husband. I care less about my parents and I have no concentration to study. I am so sorry for being a bad part of this beautiful ummah. I’m trying to change so hard but I have no success so far. Are there any people out there who could help me?

Reference: I'TIKAF

Salam Alaykum,

Dear brothers and sisters,

The last 10 days of Ramadan has come. There is a great sunnah called: I'tikaf.

Please remember us in your dua'as.

Objects and Advantages of I'tikaf

The reward of “Itikaf is great. The mere fact that the Messenger of Allah (saw) always performed it is sufficient to explain the virtues that are attached to it. The example of the one that resides in the, masjid in I'tikaf is like the person who, having gone to a high personage to appeal for his needs, remains there until it is granted, He thus says to Allah: "0 Allah! I have placed my humble request before You and have faith in Your generosity; and I shall not move from here until my request is granted by You,” When someone comes begging at the door and then refuses to leave until his request is granted, it is certain that even the most selfish person will eventually accede to one’s request; and how much more Merciful is Allah.

In every moment of I'tikaf one remains in lbadah (worship), even when asleep, one is still in His service, striving for nearness to Him. Allah says, according to a hadith,

“Whoever draws near to Me an arms length, then I draw nearer to him two arm lengths; and whoever draws nearer to Me by walking, I draw nearer to him by running.”

It is also deduced from the various narrations that one of the major objects of I'tikaf during Ramadan is to search for Laylatul Qadr (the Night of Power), What better manner can there be than to remain in ibadah at all times, whether one is awake or asleep, to obtain the reward of 1,000 months (over 83 years) of worship, Furthermore, in I'tikaf one is free from all daily tasks and thus has all the time to devote to dhikrullah (remembrance of Allah) and meditation.

Virtues of I'tikaf

Ibn ‘Abbas relates that the Messenger of Allah (saw) said: “The person performing I'tikaf remains free from sins and he is indeed given the same reward as all those who do righteous deeds (in spite of his not having done those deeds as a result of having been secluded in the masjid).”

Conditions of I'tikaf

The following are conditions for performance of I'tikaf:

1. to be a Muslim.
2. To be sane,
3. To be clean from major impurity, monthly menses, and bleeding of childbirth,
4. To perform I'tikaf in a masjid (for males only),
5. To form the niyyah (intention) for I'tikaf.
6. To fast for wajib and sunnah I'tikaf (discussed below).

Note: Women may observe I'tikaf in the home. It is also not necessary to have reached the age of puberty to observe I'tikaf; therefore an intelligent child (male or female) may observe I'tikaf.

Types of I'tikaf

There are three types of I'tikaf:

1. Wajib,
2. Sunnah,
3. Nafl.

1. Wajib I'tikaf: I'tikaf becomes compulsory (wajib) when a person makes it obligatory upon himself. For instance, when a person makes a vow of thanks-giving to Allah that if Allah fulfills a certain wish of his, he will perform so many … days of I'tikaf. In this case, the moment his wish is fulfilled, I'tikaf becomes compulsory. Or, a person may merely make an unconditional vow whereby he makes I'tikaf compulsory upon himself for a certain number of days. This becomes a duty on him from that moment onwards.

A wajib I'tikaf cannot be for less than one day and one night and has to be performed while fasting, irrespective of whether the fast is specifically for this purpose or not. If the niyyah is for several days then the same number of nights will also have to be spent in I'tikaf. The I'tikaf will thus begin before sunset and terminate at sunset after the avowed number of days has been completed. The night proceeds the day in Islamic reckoning. The intention for this type of I'tikaf must be pronounced, mere mental niyyah is not sufficient.

2. Sunnah I'tikaf: This I'tikaf was observed by Rasulullah (PBUH) in every year of his stay at Madinah Munawwarah. This I'tikaf means to seclude oneself inside the masjid for the last ten days of Ramadan. This I'tikaf is Sunnatul-mu'akkadah 'alal-kifayah: that is, if a few persons from the locality observe it, the rest will be exempted. If no one observes it then all the Muslims of that area will be sinful in neglecting this sunnah. The niyyah for Sunnah I'tikaf is that a firm intention should be made for this purpose before the sun sets on the 20th of Ramadan, in the masjid that is chosen for the I'tikaf. It terminates at sunset if the crescent is sighted on the 29th or on the 30th of Ramadan. There is no prescribed salah to be performed for this purpose. It is noteworthy that generally no Nafl salah should be performed after 'Asr salah until Maghrib.

3. Nafl l'tikaf: There is no special time or specific number of days for Nafl l'tikaf. A person may form the niyyah for any number of days at any time of the year, even for his whole life. While Imam Abu Hanifah ® states that it cannot be for less than a full day, Imam Muhammad ® states that there is no limit as to the minimum period of time. It could even be for just a few seconds. The fatwa is on this latter view. There is no fast associated with this type of I'tikaf. .It is desirable for anyone entering a masjid to make the niyyah for I'tikaf as long as he will remain in the masjid. So, while he is in 'ibadah (worship), he also gains the reward of I'tikaf.

It is advisable for everyone who comes to join the congregational prayers to form an intention of I'tikaf upon entering the masjid. This will mean that as long as he remains busy with salah, dhikr,’ listening to religious lectures, etc. He also receives the reward for I'tikaf.

Itikaf for Females

Females should perform I'tikaf in the room set aside for prayer inside their homes. Where, however, no such room exists, and the desire to observe I'tikaf is present, the room where salah is normally performed should be set aside for this seclusion. If salah is performed in the bedroom, I'tikaf could be performed there. The domestic duties should be carried out by the daughters or servants while the person in I'tikaf remains constantly in 'ibadah in her room.

I'tikaf is a much easier task for women, for in fact, she remains in the confines of her room at home and receives the same great rewards of I'tikaf. It is very unfortunate that in spite of this ease, our womenfolk still remain deprived of the blessings of I'tikaf. Generally this Sunnah is neglected so much so that many have not even heard of it!

Additional Rules for Females in I'tikaf In addition to the general rules of I'tikaf that apply to men, there are some rules that apply to women only:

a. A woman may perform I'tikaf in the room that is used for her daily salah.
b. A woman must have the permission of her husband for I'tikaf. Once the husband has consented to his wife’s I'tikaf, he then cannot withdraw his permission.
c. If there is no person to serve her meals during I'tikaf, the woman is allowed to go to the kitchen to prepare a quick simple meal.
d. If, during the I'tikaf, the woman has her hadith (monthly menses) or nifas (bleeding after child birth), the I'tikaf is nullified. She has to observe make-up of the remaining days after she is pure again. This is if the I'tikaf was a wajib or Sunnah, in which the vowed number of days was fixed. In the case where the Itikaf was a wajib in which the days vowed for were not fixed in number, she will have to observe make-up of the full I'tikaf. e. A woman is allowed to sleep on her bed and use a chair while she is in Itikaf. She could also walk around in the room for a short while to relieve the stiffness in her limbs.

When a Mu'takif could leave the Masjid or place of Itikaf

The Mu'takif (a person in I'tikaf) could leave the defined masjid area for the following reasons only. If he/she leaves for any reason other than the under mentioned then the I'tikaf will terminate forthwith. When going out for these necessities do not spend more time than is absolutely required. Return as soon as possible and do not talk to anyone. If someone greets you, it is wajib to only answer.

a. To answer the call of nature when necessary.
b. To perform wudu when the wudu’ terminates (breaks). It is not permissible to leave the masjid to perform wudu’ when one still has wudu’. When out of the masjid for these necessities it is permissible for one to greet others and to reply to their Salam.
c. To perform the wajib bath (due to a wet dream). If one leaves the masjid to have a shower to cool off on a hot day or a bath for Friday, the I'tikaf will be nullified. When going out for wudu’ it is permissible to have a wash while performing wudu’, provided it is done in the same time during which wudu’ is made.
d. To perform Jum'ah salah if it is not performed in that masjid. It is only permissible to leave for Jum'ah just prior to the commencement of the khutbah. One must return immediately after performing the Sunnah rak'at succeeding the Jum'ah.

When a Mu'takif cannot leave the Masjid or place of I'tikaf allowed to leave the defined masjid area for the under mentioned reasons. If he does leave, even though for a few seconds, either intentionally or unintentionally, his I'tikaf will be nullified.

a. Because of illness or fear.
b. To visit the sick.
c. To attend a Janazah salah.
d. To extinguish a fire or save a drowning person outside of the masjid area.
e. To wash hands, gargle, and brush teeth or to expectorate (spit). (These should all be done while performing wudu’). To fetch a glass of water.
f. To assist the caretaker in his duties outside the masjid area.

[Note: in situations (a) and (d) it will be permissible to leave the masjid but the I'tikaf will be nullified and for example, if it is a wajib I'tikaf, then quad will be necessary.]

What is allowed during Itikaf?

The following are allowed in the masjid during the Itikaf:

a. To eat and sleep
b. To change clothes.
c. To clip the nails or trim the moustache.
d. To recite the Our'an aloud or recite tasbih or dhikr with a raised voice if it does not disturb others.
e. To have religious discussions and lectures and to speak about lawful matters.

What is disallowed during I’tikaf?

The following are not allowed in the masjid during the I'tikaf:

a. To talk about worldly affairs, backbite or tell an untruth.
b. To remain silent and regard it as 'ibadah.
c. To shave the beard.

What to do during I'tikaf

All the time spent in I'tikaf should be beneficially used for 'ibadah. This is the opportunity when one is able to observe all those devotions that could not be normally carried out. The fard salah should be performed with meticulous care and humbleness and without haste. The most virtuous act is reciting the Our'an, thereafter du'a, istighfar, and nafl salah.

There is undoubtedly a great link between the month of Ramadan and the Holy Our'an. Almost all Allah’s Divine Scriptures were revealed in this month. Therefore for those in sunnah I'tikaf the most virtuous act, after the farg salah, is the recitation of Allah’s final Book to humanity - the Our'an. An effort should be made to complete at least one khatam during the sunnah I'tikaf.

I'tikaf is the opportune time to communicate with Allah, to beseech of Him, to ask Him for forgiveness and to ask Him for all one’s needs. In the hadith it is said: “Du'a is the essence of’ ibadah.” For forgiveness of sins the Sayyidul-Istighfar should be recited as many times as possible.
