Important Fatwa

What is the legal ruling on replying to salutation and respond to the sneezer (i.e., by saying to him: Yarhamuk-Allah after he says: Al-hamdu lillah) during the Khuttbah of Jum’ah ?

The answer: this is impermissible because it’s generally considered to be speaking, which is impermissible during the khuttbah. And because greeting in this situation is impermissible in the first place; therefore, replying to it is automatically impermissible.

Also, the sneezer is not allowed to speak out “alhamduillah” during the khhuttbah; thus, replying must not take place.

 

Majmoo’ fatawa sheikh Muhammad ibn Salih al-Uthaymeen : volume 16/ chapter: Juma’ah prayer.

Is It A Must To Observe The Prostration of Recitation Whenever It Comes Across?

Sheikh ibn Uthaymeen was asked:

Question: Is it a must to observe the prostration of recitation (Sujood at-Tilawah) whenever one comes across verses marked with this prostration?

The answer:

First: in regards to the phrase “is it a must”, it’s actually not an obligation to observe this porstration; it’s rather a sunnah no matter how many times one comes across verses marked with this prostration. This statement is supported by Umar’s observance of this particular prostration at one incident during a Jumaa prayer, at which he came across a verse in Surat al-Nahl marked with Sujood and prostrated. In a similar incident, he came across the same verse but he didn’t observe this prostration; he commented, “Allah left us the choice in observing this prostration and didn’t obligate it.”

As for the repetition of this prostration, observing it once is sufficient for who recites the Qur’an regularly and he is not required to repeat it every time.

Remaining Firm Upon the Path of Ilm – Shaykh Taamir Fatooh

Question:  How does one remain firm upon the path of seeking Ilm (Knowledge)?

Answer: Shaykh Taamir Fatooh (may Allah have mercy upon him and his family) said, first one must set goals; goals in regards to why he is seeking Ilm.  He must set goals and try to attain them, bi’ithnillah.   Setting goals will provide him with guidance and direction.  He should set goals; saying, I want to memorize Qur’aan, in shaa Allah, he strives in attaining this.  He wants to memorize various books; he then sets forth in trying to attain this, in shaa Allah.

The shaykh said, the student must set goals and try to attain these goals.  In shaa Allah.

(Translators’s note):  We must establish Ikhlaas Lillah (Sincerity for Allah) when establishing our goals.  We must establish these goals seeking Allah’s Face and entrance into His Jannah by His Rahmah (Mercy).

The Shaykh Taamir said, he began his quest for Ilm while in his late 20’s.  He began by memorizing Qur’aan.  Next he said that he wanted to educate himself, so he entered the Ma’had (Learning center) of Ansaar was-Sunnah Al-Muhammadiyyah in Abdeen, Cairo; in which he completed his studies in 4 years.  Along with 10 years of attending the various classes which were found in Masjid At-Tawheed in Abdeen, Cairo.

He studied with Shuyookh such as Ahmad Fahmiyy (rahimahullah), as well as Hasan Abdul-Wahaab Al-Bannaa, Aadil Sayyid and Aliyy Waseefiyy (hafithahumullah alaa khayr).  He said that he began his studies by learning the books of Usool (Foundations) of Aqeedah (Creed), Fiqh (Legislation), Tafseer (Explanation of Qur’aan) and Hadeeth.

May Allah bless and reward with good all of the Scholars and students of Ahlus-Sunnah and have mercy upon them all.

Consciousness

I just read an interesting quote written by a modern influential Egyptian writer, whose name is Mustafa Lutfi al-Manfaluti. So I thought I’d share it with you.

He said, “The cause of misery one may have lies in the heart of one’s own consciousness. Come to think of it, the person who harbors envy feels the constantly evolving pain every time the one envied is at his sight, the one who bears malice feels the ravaging pain every time he recalls his painful memories of being powerless to exact revenge on whom he hates, the greedy feels the pain when he cannot reach what he craves, the adulterer feels the pain whenever his conscious blames him for his sin, the oppressor feels the same when he hears the prayers and the supplications of the one he inflicted oppression against, and the same case applies for the liar, backbiter, and whoever harbors an immoral or shameful traits.

Happiness is rightly pursued in embodying the virtuous and righteous consciousness otherwise one will live in misery for the rest of one’s life even if one is in possession of all the money in the world.”

Translation by: Abdullah Ibrahim Omran.

Put Your Full Trust in Allah

Read the following quote and you will be staggered how we confine ourselves to the shackles of our limited conception of “al-Tawakul” trust in Allah. We cripple our life with our own ignorance of the essence of trust in Allah, which will necessarily elevate us, if observed, to the frontier and elite position in this world, that we supposedly should have seized. The following quote is meant to provide you with a penetrating and boundless insight that empowers you to see through your limited conception of this concept “Trust in Allah”. Get on any sort of work you do, recall the image of this quote in your mind, and let it triggers your full power. You should always have this combination whenever you engage in any type of action: Trust in Allah and simultaneous and exploiting every efficient and potential mean that gets you to achieving your goals of this life and the next one.

Imam ibn al-Qayyim observed, “If a person were to put his full trust in Allah in order to move a mountain and he was ordered to do so, he would certainly move it.”
