Cans and Can’ts of Ramadaan ♥

Sometimes it is just confusing, so this is here to, in shaa Allah, help you out ♥

Q: Can I use eyedrops or the Sunnah Kohl (eyeliner) during fast?

A: According to the most popular view, it does not.

Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen said:

Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyah was of the view that kohl does not break the fast, not even if the taste of the kohl reaches the throat. He said, this is not called food or drink, and it is not like food or drink, and it does not have the same effect as food or drink. There is no saheeh hadeeth from the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) which expressly indicates that kohl breaks the fast, and the basic principle is that it does not break the fast. An act of worship remains valid unless it is proven that it is invalidated. What he said is correct, even if a person can taste it in his throat. Based on the view favoured by Shaykh al-Islam, if a person puts drops in his eyes whilst fasting and tastes it in his throat, that does not break his fast.
(Al-Sharh al-Mumti’, 6/382)

Q: If I take wudu (abolition) and rinse my mouth, do I have no spit out all traces of water so that I do not swallow any

A: No, spit out the unnecessary water in your mouth, but do not spit constantly so much it becomes unreasonable. 

Q: Can I use moisturiser on my face?

A: Yes you can

Q: If I eat something by accident, do I break my fast?

A: No, you may continue fasting

Narrated Abu Huraira:
The Prophet (pbuh) said:
“If somebody eats or drinks forgetfully then he should complete his fast, for what he has eaten or drunk, has been given to him by Allah.”
(Sahih al-Bukhari)

Q: Can I wear makeup during fast?

A: If you are around non-Mahram men, then you cannot.

“And not to show off their adornment.” 
Quran (24:31)
And do not display yourselves like that of the times of ignorance.”
Quran (33:33)

Q: Can I wear makeup after Iftar, infront of non-Mahram men, because then I am not fasting?

A: Please read above Q&A

Q: Is rudeness in behavior and/or speech tolerated in Ramadaan?

A: No

Narrated Abu Huraira:
The Prophet (ﷺ) said,
“Whoever does not give up forged speech and evil actions, Allah is not in need of his leaving his food and drink (i.e. Allah will not accept his fasting.)”
(Sahih al –Bukhari)

Q: Can I kiss and embrace (not have sexual relation) my husband/wife while I am fasting?

A: Yes, regarding your self-control

Narrated `Aisha:

The Prophet (pbuh) used to kiss and embrace (his wives) while he was fasting, and he had more power to control his desires than any of you.
Said Jabir: “The person who gets discharge after casting a look (on his wife) should complete his fast.”
(Sahih al-Bukhari)

Narrated Hisham’s father:
Aisha said, “Allah’s Messenger (pbuh) used to kiss some of his wives while he was fasting,” and then she smiled.
(Sahih al-Bukhari)

Q: Can I have sexual relations with my husband/wife during the nights of Ramadaan, after Iftar?

A: Yes, as Allah SWT says in the Quran

It is made lawful for you to have sexual relations with your wives on the night of As-Sawm(the fasts).
They are Libaas [i.e. body-cover, or screen, or Sakan (i.e. you enjoy the pleasure of living with them] for you and you are the same for them. 
Allah knows that you used to deceive yourselves, so He turned to you (accepted your repentance) and forgave you. So now have sexual relations with them and seek that which Allah has ordained for you (offspring), and eat and drink until the white thread (light) of dawn appears to you distinct from the black thread (darkness of night), then complete your Sawm (fast) till the nightfall”
Quran (2:187)

Q: Can we skip Suhur and sleep instead?

A: It is not preferred

Narrated Anas bin Malik:
The Prophet (ﷺ) said,
“Take Suhur as there is a blessing in it.”
(Sahih al-Bukhari)

Q: Can I delay Iftar?

A: No

Narrated Sahl bin Sa`d:
Allah’s Messenger (pbuh) said,
“The people will remain on the right path as long as they hasten the breaking of the fast.”
(Sahih al-Bukhari)

Q: Should I feel insulted when people eat and drink infront of me?

A: No

If you have any other questions about Ramadaan, please drop me a message in the ask-box and I will in shaa Allah get back to you ♥

I wish you a wonderful, Emaan increasing, Barakah reaping, happy, joyous and fruitful Ramadaan, Ameen ♥

Every time a person increases in obedience to Allāh, He opens up doors of knowledge and Eemān for him which He does not open up for anyone else.

Sh. Ibn ‘Uthaymeen Raḥimahullāh

● [صفة صلاة النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم صـ ٩]

Ibn Uthaymeen (rahimahullah) said:

“If you truly contemplated on the meaning of Allahu Akbar (in Salah) the world would vanish from your thoughts. This is because Allah is greater than everything, and you are standing before the One greater than everything.“

الشرح الممتع 2/28

Those who say that Islam is the religion of equality are lying against Islam. Rather Islam is the religion of justice, which means treating equally those who are equal and differentiating between those who are different. No one who knows the religion of Islam would say that it is the religion of equality.
—  Shaykh Ibn Uthaymeen| Sharh Al-Aqeedah Al-Wasitah, (1/180-181)
If you see from yourself that your Eemān increases every time you recite Qur’ān then this is a sign of success.

Sh. Ibn ‘Uthaymeen Raḥimahullāh

● [شرح رياض الصالحين ١/٥٤٥]

“You being afflicted with the evil eye doesn’t mean that you are beautiful or wealthy, rather it means that you have fallen short in remembering Allāh!”

- Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen

Shaykh Muhammad al-Saalih al-‘Uthaymeen (may Allaah have mercy on him) said:

The hijaab prescribed in sharee’ah means that a woman should cover everything that it is haraam for her to show, i.e., she should cover that which it is obligatory for her to cover, first and foremost of which is the face, because it is the focus of temptation and desire.

A woman is obliged to cover her face in front of anyone who is not her mahram (blood relative to whom marriage is forbidden). From this we learn that the face is the most essential thing to be covered. There is evidence from the Book of Allaah and the Sunnah of His Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) and the views of the Sahaabah and the imams and scholars of Islam, which indicates that women are obliged to cover all of their bodies in front of those who are not their mahrams.

[Fataawa al-Mar’ah al-Muslimah, 1/ 391, 392]

If any sisters were looking for women scholars, Taymiyyah Zubair is worth a listen. She gives lectures in English & her Tafsir comes recommended.

To add, her mother studied under Sh. Ibn ‘Uthaymeen.

“…does not perceive…”

🎓Shaikh Muhammad Ibn Saaleh al-`Uthaymeen رحمه الله said:

❝One of the reasons why there is no Khushoo` in Salaah is because when the person is praying he does not perceive that he is now standing before Allaah عز وجل while declaring His Greatness, praising Him, Glorifying Him, beseeching Him. This is why there is no Khushoo`.❞

—  📚 [al-Liqaa al-Ramadhaaniyyah]

Shaykh Ibn ’Uthaymeen رحمه الله said:

“The one who is hidden from the people is the one who does not try to be prominent and known, and he is not interested in becoming prominent before people or being pointed out, or having people talk about him. You will find him going from his house to the mosque, and from the mosque to his house, and from his house to visit his relatives and brothers, keeping a low profile.”

[Sharh Riyadh as-Saaliheen; p. 629]

NOT a SINGLE letter in Qur’ān has come with the commandment of ‘equality’, rather (Qur’ān) commands with JUSTICE.

Everything Belongs to Allaah

Shaykh Ibn Uthaymeen -rahimahullaah- said:
“If everything belongs to Allaah & then He takes something from you, it is His to begin with & if He gives you something then know it still belongs to Him… . so how can you get annoyed [about the Duniya]?”

[Sharh Riyadh as-Saliheen 1/207]

Sh Ibn Uthaymeen said,

A person shouldn’t open himself up to worry and regret, because that will upset him and spoil his life and maybe even his religion, that is why the Prophet ﷺ said about a person who has had something he dislikes happen to him even after carrying out all available means,

‘Don’t say, ‘If …,’ for (saying), ‘If …,’ opens (the door) to the deeds of Satan.’

Sharh Buloogh al-Maraam (vol. 11, p. 69)

anonymous asked:

Selam u aleykum,I swear for my sin then ı violate my oath and repentance after a while, I made the same sin more and more what should ı do ? I hate myself because I'm insincere. I've really sworn to swear and swore that I never thought I'd ever fall again. Please help me and please make dua for me.ı beg you please help me.I repent and do it again and again, knowing that I should not do it, but I do not want it, and I prefer to die instead because it gives me pain.Im afraid of getting dirty

First, do not do this again swear for ur sins

Abu Bakr came to the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) and said to him,

“Teach me a du’aa’ that I can say in my prayer.” He said, “Say Allaahumma inni zalamtu nafsi zulman katheeran wa laa yaghfir al-dhunooba illa anta faghfir li maghfiratan min ‘indika warhamni innaka anta al-Ghafoor al-Raheem

(O Allaah, I have done great injustice to myself and no one forgives sin except You. Grant me forgiveness from You and have mercy on me, for You are the Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful).” (Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 834; Muslim, 2705).

And the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said:

“Allah will accept the repentance of His slave so long as the death rattle has not yet reached his throat.”

(Narrated by al-Tirmidhi and classed as hasan by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Tirmidhi, 2802).

Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen said:  

“How often is it the case that one of us will be better after committing sin than he was before. In many instances a person errs and falls into sin, then he feels ashamed in his heart before Allah and he turns to Him and repents to Him, so that he thinks of that sin all the time and continually regrets it and seeks forgiveness. But another person may think that he is obedient (towards Allah) and that he is one of the people who obey and worship Him, so he starts to admire himself and does not turn to Allah, which adversely affects his religious commitment. Allah is Wise and may test a person with sin in order to set him straight, just as He may test a person with hunger in order to improve his health. Adam was only chosen after he had committed sin and repented therefrom.

Al-Hafiz Ibn Rajab al-Hanbali (rahimahullaah) said: ‘Ali said: “The best of you is every tempted one who repents (i.e., every time he is tempted by this   world, he repents).” It was said, “What if he sins again?

He said, “He   should ask Allah for forgiveness and repent.” It was said, “What if he  sins again?” He said, “He should ask Allah for forgiveness and   repent.”  It was said, “What if he sins again?” He said, “He should ask Allah  for forgiveness and repent.” It was said,

“For how long?” He   said,  “Until the Shaytaan is defeated.”

‘Umar ibn ‘Abd al-‘Azeez said in his khutbah: O people, whoever commits sin, let him seek the forgiveness of Allah and repent. If he does it again, let him seek the forgiveness of Allah and repent, and if he does it again, let him seek the forgiveness of Allah and repent.

Shaykh ibn Uthaymeen رحمه الله said:

“Know that when you deal and interact with your wife then it is mandatory that you think of a (scenario) where a man is the husband of your daughter. How does he treat her? Would you be pleased for him to treat her with harshness and sternness? The answer is no. Therefore, do not be content with treating the daughter of another person in a fashion that you would not be pleased for your daughter to be treated. This principle should be known by all people.”
