Make up the regular Sunnah prayers

 
Ibn Maajah (1154) narrated that Qays ibn ‘Amr said:
 
The Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) saw a man praying two rak‘ahs after Fajr. The Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said: “Fajr prayer twice?” The man said to him: I did not pray the two rak‘ahs that come before it, so I prayed them (now). And the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) did not say anything.
 
Classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh Ibn Maajah, 948.
 
al-Tirmidhi (426) narrated from ‘Aa’ishah (may Allah be pleased with her) that if the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) did not pray four rak‘ahs before Zuhr, he would pray them afterwards.
 
Classed as hasan by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Tirmidhi.
 
Al-Nawawi (may Allah have mercy on him) said:
 
The correct view is our opinion is that it is mustahabb to make up the regular Sunnah prayers (al-sunan al-rawaatib). This is the view of Muhammad, al-Muzani, and Ahmad according to one report. Abu Haneefah, Maalik and Abu Yoosuf, according to the more well-known report from them, said: They should not be made up; our evidence is these saheeh hadeeths.
 
al-Majmoo‘, 4/43
 
Al-Mardaawi al-Hanbali (may Allah have mercy on him) said:
 
The words “and whoever misses any of these Sunnah prayers, it is prescribed for him to make them up”– this is our madhhab (the madhhab of Imam Ahmad) and is the well known view according to our companions.
 
al-Insaaf, 2/187
 
Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyah (may Allah have mercy on him) said:
 
If one of the regular Sunnah prayers, such as the Sunnah prayer of Zuhr, is missed, can it be made up after ‘Asr? There are two views both of which were narrated from Ahmad. One of them is that it may not be made up; this is the view of Abu Haneefah and Maalik. The other view is that it may be made up. This is the view of al-Shaafa‘i and it is stronger. And Allah knows best.
 
Majmoo‘ al-Fataawa, 23/127
 
Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen (may Allah have mercy on him) was asked: Is it permissible to delay the Sunnah prayer that is offered before Zuhr, as we start Zuhr prayer, then after approximately one hour we offer the Sunnah prayers that come before and after, because the time allowed for us to pray where we are studying outside the Kingdom is only enough to do wudoo’ and offer the (obligatory) prayer only?
 
He replied:
 
If a person delays the Sunnah prayer that should be offered before until after the prayer, if that is because of an excuse then there is nothing wrong with him making it up later on, and it is acceptable. But if he had no excuse, then it is not acceptable. What the questioner has mentioned about the time only being enough to do wudoo’ and offer the obligatory prayer is an excuse; based on that, it is permissible to make up the Sunnah prayer that should come before after the prayer, but in this case one should start with the Sunnah that comes after the obligatory prayer, then make up the Sunnah that comes before.

ابن ماجه (1154) عَنْ قَيْسِ بْنِ عَمْرٍو قَالَ : رَأَى النَّبِيُّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ رَجُلًا يُصَلِّي بَعْدَ صَلاةِ الصُّبْحِ رَكْعَتَيْنِ . فَقَالَ النَّبِيُّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ : أَصَلاةَ الصُّبْحِ مَرَّتَيْنِ ؟ فَقَالَ لَهُ الرَّجُلُ : إِنِّي لَمْ أَكُنْ صَلَّيْتُ الرَّكْعَتَيْنِ اللَّتَيْنِ قَبْلَهُمَا ، فَصَلَّيْتُهُمَا . قَالَ : فَسَكَتَ النَّبِيُّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ . صححه الألباني في صحيح ابن ماجه (948) .
 
ولما رواه الترمذي (426) عن عائشة رضي الله عنها (أن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم كان إذا لم يصل أربعا قبل الظهر صلاهن بعده) وحسنه الألباني في "صحيح الترمذي" .
 
قال النووي رحمه الله :
 
"الصحيح عندنا : استحباب قضاء النوافل الراتبة ، وبه قال محمد ، والمزني ، وأحمد في رواية عنه ، وقال أبو حنيفة ومالك وأبو يوسف في أشهر الرواية عنهما : لا يقضي ، دليلنا هذه الأحاديث الصحيحة"  .
 
"المجموع" (4/43).
 
وقال المرداوي الحنبلي رحمه الله :
 
" قوله : (ومن فاته شيء من هذه السنن سن له قضاؤها) : هذا المذهب [يعني مذهب الإمام أحمد] والمشهور عند  الأصحاب"  .
 
"الإنصاف" (2/187) .
 
وقال شيخ الإسلام ابن تيمية رحمه الله :
 
"إذَا فَاتَتْ السُّنَّةُ الرَّاتِبَةُ مِثْلُ سُنَّةِ الظُّهْرِ . فَهَلْ تُقْضَى بَعْدَ الْعَصْرِ ؟ عَلَى قَوْلَيْنِ هُمَا رِوَايَتَانِ عَنْ أَحْمَد : أَحَدُهُمَا : لَا تُقْضَى وَهُوَ مَذْهَبُ أَبِي حَنِيفَةَ وَمَالِكٍ . وَالثَّانِي : تُقْضَى وَهُوَ قَوْلُ الشَّافِعِيِّ وَهُوَ أَقْوَى . وَاَللَّهُ أَعْلَمُ"  .
 
"مجموع الفتاوى" (23/127) .
 
الشيخ ابن عثيمين رحمه الله : هل يجوز تأخير السنن القبلية التي قبل صلاة الظهر بحيث نبدأ صلاة الظهر وبعد ساعة تقريباً نصلي السنن القبلية والبعدية ؛ لأن الوقت الذي يسمح لنا بالصلاة فيه في مكان الدراسة خارج المملكة لا يكفي إلا للوضوء والصلاة فقط ؟ 
 
فأجاب : "إذا أخر إنسان السنة القبلية إلى بعد الصلاة ، فإن كان لعذر فلا حرج عليه أن يقضيها بعدها وتجزئه ، وإذا كان لغير عذر فإنها لا تجزئه ، وما ذكرت السائلة من أن الوقت لا يتسع إلا للوضوء ولصلاة الفرض فإنه عذر ، وعلى هذا فيجوز قضاء الرواتب القبلية بعد الصلاة ، ولكنه في هذه الحال يبدأ أولاً بالسنة البعدية ثم يقضي السنن القبلية"  .

Poem by Imaam ash-Shafi'i: "Let days go forth.."


Poem by Imaam ash-Shafi'i: "Let days go forth.."

A beautiful poem by Imaam ash-Shafi'i (rahimahullah)

دع الأيام تفعل ما تشاء *** وطب نفسا إذا حكم القضاء
ولا تجزع لحادثة الليالي *** فما لحوادث الدنيا بقاء
وكن رجلا على الأهوال جلدا *** وشيمتك السماحة والوفاء
وإن كثرت عيوبك في البرايا *** وسرك أن يكون لها غطاء
يغطى بالسماحة كل عيب *** وكم عيب يغطيه السخاء
ولا حزن يدوم ولا سرور *** ولا بؤس عليك ولا رخاء
ولا ترج السماحة من بخيل *** فما في النار للظمآن ماء
ورزقك ليس ينقصه التأني *** وليس يزيد في الرزق العناء
إذا ما كنت ذا قلب قنوع *** فأنت ومالك الدنيا سواء
ومن نزلت بساحته المنايا *** فلا أرض تقيه ولا سماء
وأرض الله واسعة ولكن *** إذا نزل القضا ضاق الفضاء
دع الأيام تغدر كل حين *** ولا يغني عن الموت الدواء


Let days go forth and do as they please
And remain firm when settled is the Decree

Don't be afraid of what happens by night
For the affairs of this world are not to last

And be a man, strong in the face of calamities
And let your nature be that of kindness and honesty

If your faults become too much in front of the people
And you wish that they were to be concealed,

Then know that kindness covers all faults
And how many faults are kept hidden by kindness!

No sadness lasts forever, nor any happiness
And you shall not remain in poverty, or any luxury

Generosity cannot be hoped from the miserly
For no water exists in the Fire for the thirsty

Your provision will not be decreased due to life's delays
And it cannot be increased due to your haste

If, in your heart, you possess contentment
Then you and those who possess the world are equal

And for him upon whose horizon death descends,
No earth can offer him protection, nor any sky

Indeed, the earth of Allah is certainly vast
But if decree descends, then the world constricts

Let days be the ones that betray you at all times
For no cure can avail a person of death

Sit mutawarrikan in prayer but..when?

Sit mutawarrikan in prayer but..when?

Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen رحمه الله  was asked in Liqa’ al-Baab il-Maftooh: When should a worshipper sit mutawarrikan in prayer, and in which prayers?
He replied: Tawarruk is done in the final tashahhud of every prayer that has two tashahhuds, i.e., the last tashahhud in Maghrib, and in ‘Isha’, and in ‘Asr, and in Zuhr. As for the two-rak’ah prayers, such as Fajr, and the regular Sunnah prayers, there is no tawarruk in them. So tawarruk is only in the last tashahhud of every prayer that has two tashahhuds.
الشيخ ابن عثيمين رحمه الله في "لقاء الباب المفتوح" : متى يجلس المصلي جلسة التورك في الصلاة وفي أي صلاة ؟

فأجاب : " التورك يكون في التشهد الأخير في كل صلاة ذات تشهدين ، أي : الأخيرة من المغرب ، والأخيرة من العشاء ، والأخيرة من العصر ، والأخيرة من الظهر ، أما الصلاة الثنائية ، كالفجر ، وكذلك الرواتب ، فإنه ليس فيها تورك ، التورك إذاً في التشهد الأخير في كل صلاة فيها تشهدان "

Disobedience: a cause for the destruction of the Ummah

Disobedience: a cause for the destruction of the Ummah

بسم الله والحمد لله والصلاة والسلام على رسول الله ، وبعد


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

“Do you see any destruction more severe than the destruction of the Ummah nowadays? They are Billion in numbers, they are nearly one-fourth of the world population, but they have no value in the global community in spite of having moral force, material power and manpower. But when they neglected the Deen of Allaah, Allaah عز وجل forsook them, so that a person trusts* the oppressors among the Kuffar more than he trusts* his own brothers among the Muslims – and this is an ordeal and a calamity.”

[التعليق على السياسة الشرعية ص. 197]

The word يركن can alternatively be translated as: relies upon, supports.

Going to the church


Going to the church

From Aslam the servant of Umar, that Umar ibn al-Khattaab arrived in Shaam, a man from the Christians made food for him, so he said to Umar; I would love that you and you companions come to me and honor me (and he was a man from the nobles of Shaam) so Umar said to him:

"We do not enter your churches because of the images inside them."

[Shaikh al-Albaani  said: Reported by al-Bayhaqi with an authentic chain of narration as al-Haafidh said in al-Fath. ]

Halal and Haram Food From the Qur’an and authentic Sunnah

Halal and Haram Food From the Qur’an and authentic Sunnah
 
Sheikh Muhammad bin Salih Al-‘Uthaymeen رحمه الله  said
 
 “…it is necessary of you to know the basic principle regarding foods’ permissibility – except those things for which there is evidence of prohibition. If we are in doubt about whether something is permissible or forbidden, then it is permissible until it because clear that it is prohibited.
 
The evidence for this is in the Words of Allah, Most High:
 
“He it is Who created for you all that is on earth…” (Al-Baqarah 2:29)
 
and the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم  said,
 
“Verily Allah has obligated the obligations – so do not neglect them. And He has limited the limits – so do not transgress them. And His silence about things is from His mercy, not forgetfulness, so do not investigate them.” (Ad-Darqutni No. 4/199 and Al-Baihaqi No. 10/122).
 
According to this principle, all animals are permissible until the evidence of prohibition is established.”
