What is the ruling on touching women with one's hand only during Ramadaan and the emission of semen as a result?. Praise be to Allaah. The ruling on touching non-mahram women is that it is haraam, during Ramadaan and at other times, whether that is touching with the hand only or actions that are more serious than that, because the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: ???If one of you were to be stabbed in the head with an iron needle,that would be better for him than his touching a woman who is not permissible for him.??? Narrated by al-Tabaraani in al-Kabeer, 486; classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Jaami???, 5045. See also question no. http://islamqa.com/2459 , http://islamqa.com/21183 Sins in general ??? including touching women ??? are more serious in Ramadaan. They detract from the reward of fasting, and may even spoil the fast altogether so that the fasting person gets nothing from his fast except hunger and thirst. Hence the fasting person is told most emphatically to avoid sin. The believer should make the most of Ramadaan to set himself straight, to repent from sin and to turn to Allaah. The day when he fasts and the day when he does not fast cannot be the same. Jaabir ibn ???Abd-Allaah (may Allaah be pleased with him) said: When you fast, then let your hearing, sight and tongue fast and abstain fromlies and haraam things, and refrain from harming your neighbour. Be tranquil and dignified on the day when you fast, and do not let the day when you fast and the day when you do not fast be the same. Narrated by Ibn al-Mubaarakin al-Zuhd, 1308. See also Question no. http://islamqa.com/37658 If a man shakes hands with a woman during the day in Ramadaan, and he ejaculates, his fast is invalidated, and there is no difference of opinion among the scholars on this point. He has to repent to Allaah from this sin, refrain from eating and drinking for the rest of the day, and make up that day???s fast later on. See al-Mughni by Ibn Qudaamah, 4/361 With regard to emission of semen whilst fasting, if that happens without desire, e.g. because of sickness, then it does not affect the fast. The Standing Committee was asked: I suffer from seminal discharge during the days in Ramadaan without any wet dreams or engaging in the ???secret habit??? (masturbation). Does this have any effect on the fast? They replied: If the matter is as described,the emission of semen without any feelings of pleasure during the day in Ramadaan does not affect your fast, and you do not have to make up that day. Fataawa al-Lajnah al-Daa???imah, 10/278. But if the emission of semen is accompanied by desire, one of two scenarios applies: 1 ??? That happens because the man does something that provokes his desires, such as kissing his wife, shaking hands with a woman with desire, etc. This invalidates the fast and he must make up that day later on. 2 ??? The semen is emitted without the man doing anything, such as simply thinking about desire, or because of a wet dream. This does not invalidate the fast and his fast is still valid. Shaykh Ibn Baaz (may Allaah have mercy on him) said: With regard to the emission of semen as the result of desire, this invalidates the fast whether that happened because of touching or kissing or repeatedly looking, or any other reason that provokes desire, such as masturbation etc. With regard to wet dreams and thinking, these do not invalidate the fast even is semen is emitted as a result.

Is it permissible to take the month of Rajab as the month of fasting?

Posted by Ngeria Muslims on May 28, 2012 at 8:10 PM Comments comments (0)
In the name of Allaah, the most Gracious, the most merciful. No! Because, there is no any Soorah in the Qur'an or any Saheeh hadeeth to indicate that there is any special virtue to in fasting all or part of this month and we heard that Prophet Muhammad said: The best of speech is the Book of Allaah, and the best of guidace is the guidance of Muhammad, the evil of thing are those which are newly invented(in religion) and every innovation is going astray"[Reported by Muslim and al-Nisaai]. There is no Saheeh hadeeth to indicate that there is any special virtue in taking the month of Rajab as fasting month. What some people do, singly out some days of Rajab for fasting, believing that they are better than others, has no basis in Sharee'ah. But there is a report from the Prophet(PBUH) which indicates that it is mustahaabb to fast during the sacred months(and Rajab is the part of them). The prophet(PBUH) said: "fast somedays of the sacred months and not others" Narrated by Abu Dawood, 2428. Clased as da'eef by Al-Albaani in Da'eef Abi-Dawood. Even if this hadeeth were saheeh, it is mustahaabb to fast during Rajab because of this, and he also fast in the other sacred months, there is nothing wrong with that. But singling out of Rajab for fasting is not right. Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyah(may Allaah have mercy on him) said in majmu' al-fatawa(25/290). As for fasting in Rajab in particular, the ahaadeeth concerning that are all da'eef(weak) and in fact mawdoo'(fabricated). The scholars do not rely on any of them, the are not among the da'eef ahaadeeth which have been narrated concerning virtue, rather most of them are fabricated and false. In Musnad and elsewhere there is a hadeeth which says that the Prophet(PBUH) enjoined fasting the sacred months namely Rajab, Dhul-Qadah, Dhul-Hijjah and Muharraam, but this has to do with fasting during all of them, not just Rajab. "Ibn al-Qayyim(may Allaah have mercy on him) said: Every hadeeth which mentions fasting in Rajab and praying during some of it night is false and fabricated"[al-Manaar al-Muneef, p.96]. Al-Haafiz Ibn Hajar said in Taybeen al-'Ajab(p. 11). There is no saheeh hadeeth that would count as evidence which speaks of the virtue of the month of Rajab, or that speak of fasting of this month or part of it, or of spendind any particular night of it in prayer. Shaykh Sayyid Saabiq(may Allaah have mercy on him)said in Fiqh al-Sunnah(1/282): "Fasting in Rajab is no better than fasting in any other month, exept that if is one of sacred months. There is no report in the Saheeh Sunnah to suggest that there is anything special about fasting in this month. Whatever has been narrated concerning that is not fit to be quoted as evidence. Shaykh Ibn Uthaymeen(may Allaah have mercy on him) was asked about fasting on the twenty-seventh of Rajab and spending that night in prayer. He replied: Fasting on the twenty seventh of Rajab and spending that night in prayer is a bid'ah(innovation) and every bid'ah is going astray. Prophet Muhammad(PBUH) said: "Whoever does any deed that is not part of this matter of ours will have it rejected"[Muslim]. And he also said: Stick to my Sunnah and the Sunnah of any rightly guided caliph, beware of newly invented matter, for every newly invented matter is Bid'ah and every Bid'ah misleading or astrayed. Note: If you are fasting the Sunnah fasting(Thursday, monday of the weak, 13th, 14th and 15th of the month) before, you can continue it in Rajab. End quote.

Islamic legislation on foods

Posted by Ngeria Muslims on February 14, 2012 at 3:45 AM Comments comments (0)
Audhu biLlahi minish shaitaanir Rajeem, Bismillahir Rahmonir Raheem Allah{SWT} says:"Eat the lawful and good things out what is in the earth"(Qrn 2:168). This rule which is directed towards avoiding unlawful and unclean thing is supplanted by another equally important direction also of a general nature. Excess of Foods and Drinks ------------------ Allah{SWT} says: And eat and drink but be no immoderate, for He does not love the immoderate ones(Qrn 7:31). As we all know that overfeeding and underfeeding is harmful to our health. Types of food which are forbidded ------------------------------------ They are:- -Dead animal -Blood -The flesh of swine -And animals that slaughered other than name of Allah{SWT} Allah{SWT} says:"O belivers! Eat of the wholesome thing we have provided you with, and give thanks to Allah{SWT} if you worship Him alone. He has forbidden yo to eat dead animals, Blood, The flesh of swine and What is slaughtered other than name of Allah; But if someone is compelled by absolute necessity, not desiring nor exceeding the limit, no sin shall be upon him: surely, Allah is forgiving, merciful(Qrn 2:172-173). Allah also says to Muhammed: "Say to your followers that:, I find not in that which is revealed to me anything forbidden for any one to eat except that is what dies of itself, or blood poured forth, or flesh of swine, for that is surely unlean, or what is a transgression, or what a name other than that of Allah{SWT} has been invoked"(Qrn 6:146). Carrion,D ead animal -------- That which dies of itself is explained further in Qrn 5:3 to include the following categories of animals: (a) The animals that dies of itself either as a result of disease, ill health or old age. (b) That which is strangled. (c) That whch is beaten to death. (d) That which dies through a fall from a height. (e) That which dies by being smitten in the horn. (f) That which dies by being devoured by beasts. () () Bible also forbids it(Lev 17:15) () Health regulations declare the above categories unclean and unsuitable for human consumption. The Quran, in forbidden them, cares for our health and therefore watches our interest. Blood ----- This is the blood which has been poured fourth, that is, the blnd which gushes out of animal either rough through an accidental cut or through slaughter. This is a practice by which such blood is collected, boiled and eaten. Allah fobids this by considering it unlean. Bible also forbids it.(Lev 7:26) Flesh of swine -------------- Not only the Qur an but also Law of Moses considers the swine as an unlean animal. Jesus also held this view, for he is reported to have cast out a number of unlean spirts which he then allowed to go into a herd of swine, causing the Lerd to perish thereby(Lev 11:7., Mathew 8:30-33., Mark 5:11-13). * Animal killed for idols ------------------------ The invocation of a name other than that of Allah at the time of slaughering an animal is considered a transgression of God's commandment, because by it one has associated a partner with God. Surely, this action makes a Muslim become an unbeliever. In this fourth category, it is the spiritual quality of a Muslim that is affected, whereas, in the first three categories, it is the health and the moral quality of Islam that are affected. We read also in Act of the Apostles(15:29) that believers are warned to abstain from these categories of food. 2. SLAUGHTERING OF ANIMALS The Qur'an requires that animals for food shall slaughtered and the purpose of slaughtering shall be made clear. People who are qualified to slaughter such animal shall be those who believe that Allah is one and do not associate any partner with Him. In this wise, the Jews and Christians come within this class. The Qur'an indicates this "This day, all good things are made lawful for you. The food of those who have been given the Book is lawful for you and your food is lawful for them"(Qrn 5:5). The Jews and Christian are those the Quran refers to as, People of Book.

THE TRUTHFULNESS

Posted by Adebayo Opeyemi on November 12, 2011 at 7:45 AM Comments comments (0)
O you who believe, why do you say that which yo do not? It is most hateful in the sight of God to say that which you do not(Qrn61:2-3) Truthfulness means not only that we should avoid telling lies, but also that we should do our duty honestly and live our life not only for ourselves but also for all those to whom we are obligated for our health,wealth knowledge and progress:that is, we should do our duty to our parents,relations, and, above all, to our community and nation. Truthfulness again means that we should be honest with our employers and carry out the work entrust by them to us as fully as possible, because employment is a kind of contanct. similarly, if we ourselves happen to be employers, we should be honest towards our employees and servants pay them regularly and reward and promote them for good work. Love of truth should also lead us to the fulfilment of promise and contract. Truth, again, means that we should recognize the good in others. We should not see only the evils and defects of other people, but we shoul also recognize their virtues. Truth also means that our outside should not be different from our inside. Hipocricy has been condemned by which Islam just because of this, and hypocricy means that we say things in which we do not believe or we say things which we do not mean to do. It is deciet to try to appear different from what we are realy. The words that we speak should come from our heart. Our speech should be open and frank, so that the other person can rely on ur. Truthfulness also includes the duty of avoiding false testimony, that is, if we are called upon as witness, we should say exactly what we have seen or heard, neither more nor less. Similarly, if we are told to decide a dispute between two persons or we should decide the matter with perfect justice and not according to our likes, or according to our relations with the parties

NO!. Some Christians refer to Jesus as God; how true is this belief even in the Bible? ALLAH say "And your Lord has commanded that you shall not worship anything but Him.(Qrn17.23). Let me give you view evidence from the Bible; -No other God exept [Isiah43:10,45:21,44:8,45:5]. -Jesus said;Thou shall worship only One God[Matthew4:10]. -Jesus was hungry[Matthew21:18-19]. -Jesus prayed[Luke22:41-44, Matthew26:39]. -Jesus feared death[John11:53-54]. -Jesus died[Matthew17:9].
