    What Should Be a Muslim’s Relationship with Non-Muslim Parents? *Understand Islam **How Should Be a Muslim’s Relationship with Non-Muslim Parents?*Islam instructs Muslims to be extraordinarily respectful in the direction of their mother and father, no matter their faith. Goodness in the direction of one’s mother and father is among the most important commandments of Islam. Many verses of the Qur’an stress the significance of being form in the direction of one’s mother and father.The Glorious Qur’an says: “Your Lord has decreed that you worship none but Him and that you be kind to parents. Whether one or both of them attain old age in your life say not to them a word of contempt nor repel them but address them in terms of honor. And out of kindness lower to them the wing of humility and say: “My Lord! Bestow on them your Mercy even as they cherished me in childhood.” (Qur’an 17:23-24)An analogous message is repeated within the following verse: “And We have enjoined on man (to be good) to his parents: in travail upon travail did his mother bear him and in years twain was his weaning: (Hear the command) “Show gratitude to Me and to thy parents: to Me is (thy final) Goal.” (Qur’an 31:14)However, Allah continues within the subsequent verse: “But if they strive to make you join in worship with Me things of which you have no knowledge obey them not; Yet bear them company in this life with justice (and consideration) and follow the way of those who turn to Me (in love)…” (Qur’an 31:15)The rights of Allah take priority over everybody else’s. Therefore, it’s prohibited within the Qur’an for a Muslim to do any sort of polytheistic worship (worship something/anyone in addition to Allah) to be able to please one’s mother and father or out of worry that not doing so would result in pressure in household or social relationships.Allah repeats within the Qur’an: “We have enjoined on man kindness to parents: but if they (either of them) strive (to force) you to join with Me (in worship) anything of which you have no knowledge, obey them not. You have (all) to return to Me and I will tell you (the truth) of all that you did.” (Qur’an 29:8)In the verses quoted above, the Muslims are commanded to indicate respect and gratitude to their mother and father, regardless of whether or not their mother and father are Muslims or non-Muslims. They are additionally instructed to obey their mother and father until they ask one to violate the commandments of Allah and His Messenger.For instance, a Muslim shouldn’t obey his / her non-Muslim mother and father when the mother and father need their Muslim kids to worship anyone or something in addition to Allah, the Creator of all. Indeed, what could be a higher sin than associating companions with Allah? Thus, it’s prohibited in Islam to accompany one’s mother and father within the issues of Shirk (polytheism).In order to keep away from household issues, the revert (neo-Muslim) ought to be dutiful and type in the direction of them in different elements of day-to-day life, which can not trigger him/her to compromise with his/her spiritual beliefs or practices, because the verse of the Qur’an quoted earlier states, “Yet bear them company in this life with justice (and consideration)”.One shouldn’t be conceited or insolent however reasonably be form, thoughtful and courteous in the direction of them. This show of kindness in the direction of one’s mother and father not solely fulfills our obligation in the direction of our Lord and the Creator but in addition turns into the means by which the mother and father could settle for Islam and obtain salvation. Indeed, such beneficent teachings are to not be present in another faith.*Footnote:*Even if the mother and father stay non-Muslims, it’s the accountability of the Muslim kids to take care of them. It is the unavoidable accountability of the youngsters to guard their mother and father who’ve attained outdated age. Islam additionally teaches that it’s sinful to rebuke and abuse one’s aged mother and father. Prophet stated: “One who breaks household ties won’t ever enter Paradise.For those that wish to know extra about Islam:*WhatsApp Group*https://chat.whatsapp.com/Gxe9gFvJvZNAtQJRc5NX5C*Tele … What Should Be a Muslim’s Relationship with Non-Muslim Parents?Read More »

    Passing In Front of the One Praying (Salaat) Narated by Busr bin Said : That Zaid bin Khalid sent him to Abi Juhaim to ask him what he had heard from Allah’s Apostle about a person passing in front of another person who was praying. Abu Juhaim replied, “Allah’s Apostle, Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) said, ‘If the person who passes in front of another person in prayer knew the magnitude of his sin he would prefer to wait for 40 (days, months or years) rather than to pass in front of him.” Abu An-Nadr said, “I do not remember exactly whether he said 40 days, months or years.”(Sahih Bukhari 489/510)@Entire_Path If he passes in front of the one who is praying, i.e., in the area between the spot where he puts his forehead when he prostrates and where he stands, this is haraam, and indeed it is a major sin. In this case it makes no different whether the person has a sutrah (object to serve as a screen) or not. If he passes in the area that is beyond the place where he prostrates. Two scenarios may apply in this case: (i) If the one who is praying has set up a sutrah (object to serve as a screen). In this case it is permissible to pass beyond the sutrah, because the Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) said: “If any one of you prays, let him face towards something. If he cannot find anything, then let him set up a stick. If he cannot do that, then let him draw a line, then it will not matter if anyone passes in front of him.” Narrated by Ahmad, 3/15; Ibn Maajah, 3063; Ibn Hibbaan, 2361. Ibn Hajar said in al-Buloogh, 249: The one who said that it is mudtarab (a kind of weak hadeeth) is not right; rather it is hasan. And it was narrated that Talhah (may Allaah be pleased with him) said: The Messenger of Allaah, Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) said: “If one of you puts something in front of him that is like the back of a saddle, then let him pray and not worry about anyone who passes beyond that.” Narrated by Muslim, 499. (ii)If the one who is praying has not set up a sutrah, he has no more than the space in which he prostrates. This is the most correct scholarly opinion. It is permissible for the one who wants to pass in front of him to pass in the space beyond where he prostrates. That is because the prohibition mentioned in the hadeeth applies to passing in front of the one who is praying, and what is beyond the place where he prostrates is not counted as being in front of the one who is praying. Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen (may Allaah have mercy on him) said, after mentioning the differences of scholarly opinion concerning the distance within which the worshipper should stop anyone from passing in front of him: The most correct opinion is that it is the distance between his feet and the place where he prostrates. That is because the one who is praying has no right to anything more than what he needs for his prayer. So he does not have the right to prevent the people from (using space) that he does not need. Al-Sharh al-Mumti’, 3/340. All of this has to do with one who is praying alone or is leading others in prayer. If he is a member of a congregation, then the sutrah of the imam is the sutrah for those who are behind him. Al-Bukhaari (may Allaah have mercy on him) said: Baab sutrat al-imam sutrah li man khalfahu (the sutrah of the imam is the sutrah of those who are behind him). It was narrated that Ibn ‘Abbaas said: Once I came riding a female donkey and had (just) attained the age of puberty. The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) praying at Mina, and there was no wall in front of him. I passed in front of part of the row while they were praying. Then I let the donkey loose to graze and joined the row, and nobody objected to it.

    Fasting Sittu Shawwaal and repaying missed days in Ramadaan Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem….*Fasting Sittu Shawwaal and repaying missed days in Ramadan needs the understanding of the science of Fiqh*.To begin with, I must state that scholars differ in opinion and we can’t fault anyone as that is what is clear to him. It must be noted also that whichever opinion is correct has double reward and the incorrect one has a reward also.Allow me begin with repaying Ramadan. A missed fast in the month of Ramadan is referred to as *Qadha* whenever one wants to repay it. Just like Salat. Qadha means debt.Secondly, in Ibadaat, there are classes of various Ibadah based on time. We have what we call *enormous time range* and*limited time range Ibadah*Everyday we pray, we buttress the fact that Magrib should not be delayed like other salat because it’s time is very short.If someone who set out for Umrah and Hajj gets to makkah on the day of Arafa,  the person will have to observe his Umrah later because then Hajj is of limited time and it is wajib  which if gone won’t come again.Ramadan is a short range Ibadah but its *Qadh* can be done anytime before the next Ramadan. That is why in the books of Fiqh, what you will always read is someone who delays the Qadha of Ramadan till the next Ramadan and still yet indebted.To make this simpler…. the *6 bonus of Shawwal is also a limited range Ibadah that must be in Shawwal alone* except for a thought in the school of thought of Abu Hanifa that one can spread it over the year, of course that is weak opinion to many of the students of the school of thought even.The fact that Shittu Shawwal is limited, one has to delay the Qadha of Ramadan because it is already Qadha and Allah says…. repay another time (before the next Ramadan of course). *There is no ruling that says missed Ramadan must be observed in shawwal but the six of shawwal must be in Shawwal as stated in the Hadith*.With this, we can conclude that observing 6 of shawwal should come before missed Ramadan.In fact, in the *Musnad of Ahmad*, *it is reported that Aisha used to observe her missed Ramadan in the next Shaban*, will one say the Abida under the roof of Rasul doesn’t do 6 of sh … Fasting Sittu Shawwaal and repaying missed days in RamadaanRead More »

    Letter to Caesar – King of Rome Al-Bukhari gave a long narration of the contents of the letter sent by the Prophet to Hercules, king of the Byzantines:”In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful. From Muhammad, the slave of Allah and His Messenger to Hercules, king of the Byzantines. Blessed are those who follow true guidance. I invite you to embrace Islam so that you may live in security. If you come within the fold of Islam, Allah will give you double reward, but in case you turn your back upon it, then the burden of the sins of all your people shall fall on your shoulders.”Say (O Muhammad (PBUH)): ‘O people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians), come to a word that is just between us and you, that we worship none but Allah, and that we associate no partners with Him, and that none of us shall take others as lords besides Allah.’ Then, if they turn away, say: ‘Bear witness that we are Muslims.’ “[The Noble Qur’an 3:64] [Sahih Al-Bukhari 1/4, 5]Hercules, in turn, asked his translator to communicate his following impression which reveals full conviction in the truthfulness of Muhammad’s Prophethood: ‘I fully realize that Prophets come from noble families; he does not affect any previous example of Prophethood. Since none of his ancestors was a monarch, we cannot then allege that he is a man trying to reclaim his father’s monarchy.So long as he does not tell lies to people, he is for the more reason, immune to telling lies as regards Allah. Concerning his followers being those deemed weak with numbers ever growing, it is something that goes in agreement with questions of Faith until this latter assumes its full dimensions geographically and demographically. I have understood that no instance of apostasy has as yet appeared among his followers and this points to the bliss of Faith that finds its abode in the human heart. Betrayal, as I see, is alien to him because real Prophets hold betrayal in abhorrence. Bidding worship of Allah with no associates, observance of prayer, honesty and abstinence and prohibition of paganism are traits bound to subject to him all my possessions. Ihave already known that a Prophet must arise but it has never occurred to me that he will be an Arab from among you. If I was sure I would be faithful to him, I might hope to meet him, and if I were with him, I would wash his feet.’Hercules then requested that the Prophet’s letter be read. The observations of the emperor and finally the definite and clear-cut exposition of the Islamic message could not but create a tense atmosphere amongst the clergy present at the court. The king did not embrace Islam — for it was differently ordained. However, the Muslim envoy was returned to Madinah with the felicitations of t … Letter to Caesar – King of RomeRead More »

    Story of Prophets Musa (Moses) and Harun (Aaron) Prophet Musa (Moses) and Prophet Harun (Aaron) The pharaoh who ruled Egypt was a tyrant who oppressed the descendants of Jacob (pbuh), known as the children of Israel (Bani Israel). He used every means to demean and disgrace them. They were kept in bondage and forced to work for him for small wages or nothing. Under this system the people obeyed and worshipped the pharaoh, and the ruling class carried out his orders, thereby authorizing his tyranny and crazy whims.The pharaoh wanted the people to obey him only, and to believe in the gods of his invention. Perhaps, during that time, there were many classes of people who did not believe in or practice polytheism; however, they kept this to themselves and outwardly did as they were expected to do, without revolting or revealing themselves to anyone.Thus, successive dynasties came to Egypt and assumed that they were gods or their representative or spokesmen.Years passed, and a despotic king, who was adored by the Egyptians, ruled Egypt. His king saw the children of Israel multiplying and prospering. He heard them talking about a vague vision that one of Israel’ s sons would dethrone the pharaoh of Egypt. Perhaps this vision was only a daydream that persisted within the hearts of the persecuted minority, or perhaps it was a prophecy from their books.Another tradition states that it was Pharaoh himself who had the vision. Ibn ‘Abbas narrated: “Pharaoh saw in his vision a fire, which came from Jerusalem and burned the houses of the Egyptians, and all Copts, and did not do harm to the children of Israel. When he woke up, he was horrified. He then gathered his priests and magicians and asked them about this vision. They said: “This means a boy will be born of them and the Egyptian people will perish at his hands.’ That is why Pharaoh commanded that all male children of the children of Israel be killed.”Either way, this vision reached the ears of the Pharaoh. He then issued a decree to slay any male child that would be born to the children of Israel. This was carried out until the experts of economics said to Pharaoh: “The aged of the children of Israel die and the young are slaughtered. This will lead to their annihilation. As a result, Pharaoh will lose the manpower of those who work for him, those whom he enslaves, and their women whom he exploits. It is better to regulate this procedure by initiating the following policy: males should be slaughtered in one year but spared to live the next year.” Pharaoh found that solution to be safer economically.Moses’s mother was pregnant with Aaron (pbuh) in a year that boys were spared; thus she gave birth to the child publicly and safely. During a year in which boys were to be slain, she gave birth to Moses (pbuh); thus his birth caused her much terror. She was afraid he would be slain, so she nursed him secretly.Allah the Almighty revealed: These are Verses of the manifest Book (that makes clear truth from falsehood, good from evil, etc.). We recite to you some of the news of Moses and Pharaoh in truth, for a people who believe (those who believe in this Quran, and in the Oneness of Allah). Verily, Pharaoh exalted himself in the land and made its people sects, weakening (oppressing) a group (children of Israel) among them, killing their sons, and letting their females live. Verily, he was of the Mufsideen (those who commit great sins and crimes, oppressors, tyrants, etc.).And we wished to do a favor to those who were weak (and oppressed) in the land, and to make them rulers and to make them the inheritors, and to establish them in the land, and We let Pharaoh and Haman and their hosts receive from them that which they feared. And We inspired the mother of Moses, saying: “Suckle him (Moses), but when you fear for him, then cast him into the river and fear not, nor grieve. Verily! We shall bring him back to you, and shall make him one of (Our) Messengers.” (Ch 28: 2-7 Quran).No sooner had the divine revelation finished that she obeyed the sacred and merciful call. She was commanded to make a basket for Moses. She nursed him, put him into the basket, then went to the shore of the Nile and threw it into the water. Her mother’s heart, the most merciful one in the world, grieved as she threw her son into the Nile. However, she was aware that Allah was much more merciful to Moses than to her, that He loved him more than her. Allah was his Lord and the Lord of the Nile.Hardly had the basket touched the water of the Nile than Allah issued His command to the waves to be calm and gentle while carrying the child would one day be a prophet. She instructed her daughter to follow the course of the basket and to report back to her. As the daughter followed the floating basket along the riverbank, she found herself right in the palace grounds and saw what was unfolding before her eyes.The basket came to rest at the riverbank, which skirted the king’s palace. The palace servants found the basket with the baby and took it to the Pharaoh and his queen. When the queen beheld the lovely infant, Allah instilled in her a strong love for this baby. Pharaoh’s wife was very different from Pharaoh. He was a disbeliever; she was a believer. He was cruel; she was merciful. He was a tyrant; she was delicate and goodhearted. She was sad because she was infertile and had hoped to have a son. Hardly had she held the baby than she kissed him.Pharaoh was much amazed when he saw his wife hugging this baby to her breast. He was much astonished because his wife was weeping with joy, something he had never seen her do before. She requested her husband: “Let me keep the baby and let him be a son to us.”Almighty Allah said; Then the household of Pharaoh picked him up, that he might become for them an enemy and a cause of grief. Verily! Pharaoh, Haman, and their hosts were sinners. And the wife of Pharaoh said; “A comfort of the eye for me and for you. Kill him not, perhaps he maybe of a benefit to us, or we may adopt him as a son.” And they perceived not (the result of that). (Ch 28:9 Quran)The queen summoned a few wet nurses to suckle the baby Moses, but he would not take any of their breasts. The queen was distressed and sent for more wet nurses. Moses’s sister was also worried, as her baby brother was without milk for a long time. Seeing the queen’s anxiety, she blurted that she knew jut the mother who would suckle the child affectionately. They asked her why she was following the floating basket. She said she did so out of curiosity. Her excuse sounded reasonable, so they believed her. They ordered her to rush and fetch the woman she was talking about. Her mother also was waiting with a heavy heart, worried about the fate of her baby. Just then her daughter rushed in with the good news. Her heart lifted and she lost no time in reaching the palace.Allah the Almighty narrated: And the heart of the mother of Moses became empty (from every thought, except the thought of Moses). She was very near to disclose his (case, the child is her son), had We not strengthened her heart (with Faith), so that she might remain as one of the believers. And she said to his (Moses’s) sister: “Follow him.” So she (his sister) watched him from a far place secretly, while they perceived not.And We had already forbidden (other) foster suckling mothers for him, until she (his sister came up and ) said: “Shall I direct you to a household who will rear him for you, and sincerely they will look after him in a good manner?”So did We restore him to his mother, that she might be delighted, and that she might not grieve, nor that she might know that the promise of Allah is true. But most of them know not. (Ch 28:10-13 Quran)As the child was put to her breast, he immediately started suckling. Pharaoh was astonished and asked; “Who are you? This child has refused to take any other breast but yours.”Had she told the truth, Pharaoh would have known that the child was an Israelite and would have killed Moses instantly. However, Allah gave her inner strength and she replied: “I am a woman of sweet milk and sweet smell,and no child refuses me.” This answer satisfied Pharaoh.Fronward, she was appointed as Moses’s wet nurse. She continued to breast-feed him for a long time. When he was bigger and was weaned, she was allowed the privilege of visiting him. Moses was raised in the palace as a prince.And when he attained his full strength, and was perfect (in manhood), We bestowed on him Hukman (Prophethood, right judgment of the affairs) and religious knowledge (of the religion of his forefathers, Islamic Monotheism). And thus do We reward the Muhsineen (good-doers).” (Ch 28:14 Quran)Allah had granted Moses (pbuh) good health, strength, knowledge, and wisdom. The weak and oppressed turned to him for protection and justice.One day in the main city, he saw two men fighting. One was an Israelite, who was being beaten by the other, an Egyptian. On seeing Moses, the Israelite begged him for help. Moses became involved in the dispute and, in a state of anger, struck a heavy blow on the Egyptian, who died on the spot. Upon realizing that he had killed a human being, Moses’s heart was filled with deep sorrow, and immediately he begged Allah for forgiveness.He had not intended to kill the man. He pleaded with Almighty Allah to forgive him, and he felt a sense of peace filling his whole being. Thereafter Moses began to show more patience and sympathy towards people.The next day he saw the same Israelite involved in another fight. Moses went to him and said: “You seem to be a quarrelsome fellow. You have a new quarrel with one person or another each day.” Fearing that Moses might strike him, the Israelite warned Moses: “Would you kill me as you killed the wretch yesterday?”The Egyptian with whom the Israelite was fighting overheard this remark and reported Moses to the authorities. Soon thereafter, as Moses was passing through the city, a man approached and alerted him: “O Moses, the chiefs have taken counsel against you. You are to be tried and killed. I would advise you to escape.”Moses knew that the penalty for killing an Egyptian was death. Allah the Exalted recounted: And he entered the city at a time of unawareness of its people, and he found there two men fighting, one of his party (his religion, from the children of Israel), and the other of his foes. The man of his own party asked him for help against his foe, so Moses struck him with his fist and killed him. He said, “This is of Satan’s doing, verily, he is a plain misleading enemy.”He said: “My Lord! Verily, I have wronged myself, so forgive me.” Then He forgave him. Verily, He is the Oft-Forgiving, the Most Merciful.He said: “My Lord! For that with which You have favored me, I will never more be a helper for the Mujrimeen (criminals, disobedient to Allah, polytheists, sinners, etc.)!”So he became afraid, looking about in the city (waiting as to what will be the result of his crime of killing), when behold, the man who had sought his help the day before, called for his help again. Moses said to him: “Verily, you are a plain misleader!” Then when he decided to seize the man who was an enemy to both of them, the man said: “O Moses! Is it your intention to kill me as you killed a man yesterday? Your aim is nothing but to become a tyrant in the land, and not to be one of those who do right.”And there came a man running, from the farthest end of the city. He said: “O Moses! Verily, the chiefs are taking counsel together about you, to kill you, so escape. Truly, I am to you of those who give sincere advice.”So he escaped from there, looking about in a state of fear. He said: “My Lord! Save me from the people who are Zalimeen (polytheists, and wrong-doers)!” (Ch 28:15-21 Quran)Moses left Egypt in a hurry without going to Pharaoh’s palace or changing his clothes. Nor was he prepared for traveling. He did not have a beast of burden upon which to ride, and he was not in a caravan. Instead, he left as soon as the believer came and warned him of Pharaoh’s plans.He traveled in the direction of the country of Midian, which was the nearest inhabited land between Syria and Egypt. His only companion in this hot desert was Allah, and his only provision was piety. There was not a single root to pick to lessen his hunger. The hot sand burned the soles of his feet. However, fearing pursuit by Pharaoh’s men, he forced himself to continue on. He traveled for eight nights, hiding during the day. After crossing the main desert, he reached a watering hole outside Midian where shepherds were watering their flocks.No sooner had Moses reached the Midian than he threw himself under a tree to rest. He suffered from hunger and fatigue. The soles of his feet felt as if they were worn out from hard walking on sand and rocks and from the dust. He did not have any money to buy a new pair of sandals, nor to buy food or drink. Moses noticed a band of shepherds watering their sheep. He went to the spring, where he saw two young women preventing their sheep from mixing with the others.Moses sensed that the women were in need of help. Forgetting his thirst, he drew nearer to them and asked if he could help them in any way.The older sister said: “We are waiting until the shepherds finish watering their sheep, then we will water ours.”Moses asked again: “Why are you waiting?”The younger one: “We cannot push men.”Moses was surprised that women were shepherding, as only men were supposed to do it. It is hard and tiresome work, and one needs to be on the alert. Moses asked: “Why are you shepherding?”The younger sister said: “Our father is an old man; his health is too poor for him to go outdoors for pasturing sheep.”Moses (pbuh) said: “I will water the sheep for you.”When Moses approached the water, he saw that the shepherds had put over the mouth of the spring an immense rock that could only be moved by ten men. Moses embraced the rock and lifted it out of the spring’s mouth, the veins of his neck and hands standing out as he did so. Moses was certainly strong. He watered their sheep and put the rock back in its place.He returned to sit in the shade of the tree. At this moment he realized that he had forgotten to drink. His stomach was sunken because of hunger.Almighty Allah described this event: And when he arrived at the water of Midian (Midyan) he found there a group of men watering their flocks, and besides them he found two women who were keeping back their flocks. He said: “What is the matter with you?” They said: “We cannot water (our flocks) until the shepherds take their flocks. And our father is a very old man.”So he watered their flocks for them, then he turned back to shade, and said: “My Lord! Truly, I am in need of whatever good that You bestow on me!” (Ch 28:22-24 Quran)The young ladies returned home earlier than usual, which surprised their father. They related the incident at the spring which was the reason that they were back early. Their father sent one of his daughters to invite the stranger to his home. Bashfully, the woman approached Moses and delivered the message. “My father is grateful for what you have done for us. He invites you to our home so that he may thank you personally.”Moses welcomed this invitation and accompanied the maiden to her father. Moses could see that they lived comfortably as a happy and peaceful household. He introduced himself and told the old man about the misfortune that he had befallen him and had compelled him to flee from Egypt. The old man comforted him: “Fear not, you have escaped from the wrong-doers.”Moses’s gentle behavior was noticed by the father and his daughters. The king man invited him to stay with them. Moses felt at home with this happy household, for they were friendly and feared Allah.One of the daughters suggested to her father that he employ Moses, as he was strong and trustworthy. They needed someone like him, especially at the water hole, which was visited by ruffians.The father asked her how she could be sure of his trustworthiness in such a short time. She replied: “When I bade him to follow me to our home, he insisted that I walk behind him so he would not observe my form (to avoid sexual attraction).”The old man was pleased to hear this. He approached Moses and said: “I wish to marry you toone omy daughters on condition that you agree to work for me for a period of eight years.”This offer suited Moses well, for being a stranger in this country, he would soon have to search for shelter, and work. Moses married the Midianite’s daughter and looked after the old man’s animals for ten long years.Almighty Allah recounted: Then there came to him one of the two women, walking shyly. She said: “Verily, my father calls you that he may reward you for having watered our flocks for us.” So when he came to him and narrated the story, he said; “Fear you not. You have escaped from the people who are Zalimeen (polytheists, disbeliveers, and wrong-doers).” And said one of them (the two women): “O my father! Hire him! Verily, the best of men for you to hire is the strong, the trustworthy.” He said: “I intend to wed one of these two daughters of mine to you, on condition that you serve me for eight years, but if you complete ten years, it will be a favor from you. But I intend not to place you under a difficulty. If Allah wills, you will find me one of the righteous.” He (Moses) said: “That is settled between me and you whichever of the two terms I fulfill, there will be no injustice to me, and Allah is Surety over what we say.” ( Ch 28:25-28 Quran)Time passed, and he lived in seclusion far from his family and his people. This period of ten years was of importance in his life. It was a period of major preparation. Certainly Moses’s mind was absorbed in the stars every night. He followed the sunrise and the sunset every day. He pondered on the plant and how it splits and soil and appears thereafter. He contemplated water and how the earth is revived by it and flourishes after its death.Of course, he was immersed in the Glorious Book of Allah, open to the insight and heart. He was immersed in the existence of Allah. All these became latent within him. The religion of Moses (pbuh) was the same as that of Jacob (pbuh), which was Islamic monotheism. His forefather was Jacob (pbuh) the grandson of Abraham (pbuh). Moses (pbuh), therefore, was one of the descendants of Abraham (pbuh) and every prophet who came after Abraham was one of Abraham’s successors. In addition to physical preparation, there was a similar spiritual preparation. It was made in complete seclusion, in the middle of the desert, and in the places of pasture. Silence was his way of life, and seclusion was his vehicle. Allah the Almighty prepared for His prophet the tools he would need later on to righteously bear the commands of Allah the Exalted.One day after the end of this period, a vague homesickness arose in Moses’s heart. He wanted to return to Egypt. He was fast and firm in making his decision, telling his wife: “Tomorrow we shall leave for Egypt.” His wife said to herself. “There are a thousand dangers in departing that have not yet been revealed.” However, she obeyed her husband.Moses himself did not know the secret of the quick and sudden decision to return to Egypt. After all, he had fled from their ten years ago with a price on his head. Why should he go back now? Did he look forward to seeing his mother and brother? Did he think of visiting Pharaoh’s wife who had raised him and who loved him as if she were his mother?No one knows what went through Moses’s mind when he returned to Egypt. All we know is that a mute obedience to Allah’s destinies impelled him to make a decision and he did. These supreme destinies steered his steps towards a matter of great importance.Moses left Midian with his family and traveled through the desert until he reached Mount Sinai. There Moses discovered that he had lost his way. He sought Allah’s direction and was shown the right course. At nightfall they reached Mount Tur. Moses noticed a fire in the distance. “I shall fetch a firebrand to warm us.”As he neared the fire, he heard a sonorous voice calling him: “O Moses, I am Allah, the Lord of the Universe.” Moses was bewildered and looked around. He again heard the strange voice. “And what is in you right hand, O Moses?”Shivering, Moses answered: “This is my staff on which I lean, and with which I beat down branches for my sheep, and for which I find other uses.” (This question was asked so that Moses’ attention would focus on the staff and to prepare him for the miracle which was to happen. This was the beginning of Moses’s mission as a prophet -pbuh).The same voice commanded him: “Throw down your staff!” He did so, and at once the staff became a wriggling snake. Moses turned to run, but the voice again addressed him: “Fear not and grasp it; We shall return it to its former state.” The snake changed back into his staff. Moses’s fear subsided and was replaced by peace, for he realized that he was witnessing the Truth.Next, Allah commanded him to thrust his hand into his robe at the armpit. When he pulled it out, the hand had a brilliant shine. Allah then commanded Moses; “You have two signs from Your Lord; go to Pharaoh and his chiefs, for they are an evil gang and have transgressed all bounds.”However, Moses feared that he would be arrested by Pharaoh, so he turned to Allah saying: “My Lord! I have killed a man among them and I fear that they will kill me.”Allah assured him of his safety and set his heart at rest.Almighty Allah narrated this event: And has there come to you the story of Moses? When he saw a fire, he said to his family: “Wait! Verily, I have seen a fire, perhaps I can bring you some burning brand therefrom, or find some guidance at the fire.”And when he came to it the fire, he was called by name: “O Moses! Verily! I am your Lord! So take off your shoes, you are in the sacred valley, Tuwa. And I have chosen you. So listen to that which is inspired to you. Verily! I am Allah! La ilaha illa Ana (none has the right to be worshipped but I), so worship Me, and offer prayers perfectly, for My Remembrance. Verily, the Hour is coming – and My Will is to keep it hidden – that every person may be rewarded for that which he strives. Therefore, let the one who believes not therein (in the Day of Resurrection, Reckoning, Paradise and Hell etc) but follows his own lusts, divert your therefrom lest you perish. And what is that in your right hand, O Moses?”He said: “This is my stick, whereon I lean, and wherewith I beat down branches for my sheep and wherein I find other uses.”Allah said: “Cast it down, O Moses!”He cast it down, and behold! It was a snake, moving quickly.Allah said: “Grasp it, and fear not, We shall return it to its former state, and press your right hand to your left side, it will come forth white and shining, and without any disease as another sign, that We may show you some of Our Greater Signs.”Go To Pharaoh! Verily! He has transgressed (all bounds in disbelief and disobedience, and has behaved as an arrogant, and as a tyrant).”Moses said: “O my Lord! Open for me my chest (grant me self-confidence, contentment, and boldness). And ease my task for me; and make loose the knot (the defect) from my tongue, (remove the incorrectness of my speech) that they understand my speech, and appoint for me a helper from my family, Aaron, my brother; increase my strength with him, and let him share my task (of conveying Allah’s Message and Prophethood), and we may glorify You much, and remember You much, Verily! You are of us Ever a Well-Seer.”Allah said: “You are granted your request, O Moses! And indeed We conferred a favor on you another time before. When We inspired your mother with that which We inspired, saying: “Put him (the child) into the Tabut (a box or a case or a chest) and put him into the river (Nile), and then the river shall cast it up on the bank, and there, an enemy of Mine and an enemy of his shall take him.’ And I endured you with love from Me, in order that you maybe brought up under My Eye, when your sister went and said; “Shall I show you one who will nurse him?’ So We restored you to your mother, that she might cool her eyes and she should not grieve. Then you did kill a man, but We saved you from a great distress and tried you with a heavy trial. Then you stayed a number of years witthe people of Midian. Then you came here according to the term which I ordained (for you), O Moses!”And I have Istana’tuka (chosen you for My Inspiration and My Message) for Myself. Go you and your brother with My Ayat (proofs, lessons, verses, evidences, signs, revelations, etc), and do not, you both, slacken and become weak in My Remembrance.”Go, both of you, to Pharaoh, verily, he has transgressed all bounds in disbelief and disobedience and behaved as an arrogant and as a tyrant. And speak to him mildly, perhaps he may accept admonition or fear Allah.”They said: “Our Lord! Verily! We fear lest he should hasten to punish us or lest he should transgress all bounds against us.”He (Allah) said: “Fear not, Verily! I am with you both, Hearing and Seeing. So go you both to him, and say: “Verily, we are Messengers of your Lord, so let the children of Israel go with us, and torment them not; indeed, we have come with a sign from your Lord! And peace will be upon him who follows the guidance! Truly, it has been revealed to us that the torment will be for him who denies (believes not in the Oneness of Allah, and in His Messengers, etc), and turns away’ (from the truth, and obedience of Allah).” (Ch 20:9-48 Quran). Moses (pbuh) and Aaron (pbuh) went together to Pharaoh and delivered their message. Moses spoke to him about Allah, His mercy and His Paradise and about the obligations of monotheism and His worship.Pharaoh listened to Moses’ speech with disdain. He thought that Moses was crazy because he dared to question his supreme position. Then he raised his hand and asked: “What do you want?”Moses answered: “I want you to send the children of Israel with us.”Pharaoh asked: “Why should I send them, as they are my slaves?”Moses replied: “They are the slaves of Allah, Lord of the Worlds.”Pharaoh then inquired sarcastically if his name was Moses. Moses said “Yes.””Are you not the Moses whom we picked up from the Nile as a helpless baby? Are you not the Moses whom we reared in this palace, who ate and drank from our provisions and whom our wealth showered with charity? Are you not the Moses who is a fugitive, the killer of an Egyptian man, if my memory does not betray me? It is said that killing is an act of disbelief. Therefore, you were a disbeliever when you killed. You are a fugitive from justice and you come to speak to me! What were you talking about Moses, I forgot?”Moses knew that Pharaoh’s mentioning his past, his upbringing, and his receiving Pharaoh’s charity was Pharaoh’s way of threatening him. Moses ignored his sarcasm and explained that he was not a disbeliever when he killed the Egyptian, he only went astray and Allah the Almighty had not yet given him the revelation at that time. He made Pharaoh understand that he fled from Egypt because he was afraid of their revenge upon him, even though the killing was an accident. He informed him that Allah had granted him forgiveness and made him one of the messengers.Allah the Almighty revealed to us part of the dialogue between Moses (pbuh) and Pharaoh: Allah said: “Nay! Go you both with Our Signs, Verily! We shall be with you, listening. And when you both come to Pharaoh, say: “We are the Messengers of the Lord of the Alamin (mankind, jinn and all that exists), and So allow the children of Israel to go with us.””Pharaoh said to Moses: “Did we not bring you up among us as a child ? And you did dwell many years of your life with us. And you did your deed which you did (the crime of killing a man) and you are one of the ingrates.”Moses said: “I did it then, when I was an ignorant (as regards my Lord and His Message). So I fled from you when I feared you. But my Lord has granted me Hukman (religious knowledge, right judgments of the affairs and Prophethood), and appointed me as one of the Messengers. And this is the past favor with which you reproach me, and that you have enslaved the children of Israel.”Pharaoh said: “And what is the Lord of the Alamin (mankind, jinn and all that exists)?”Moses replied: “Lord of the heavens, and the earth, and all that is between them, if you seek to be convinced with certainty.”Pharaoh said to those around: “Do you not hear what he says?”Moses said: “Your Lord and the Lord of your ancient fathers!”Pharaoh said: “Verily, your Messenger who has been sent to you is a madman!”Moses said: “Lord of the east, and the west, and all that is between them, if you did but understand!”Pharaoh said: “If you choose an ilah (a god) other than me, I will certainly put you among the prisoners.”Moses said: “Even if I bring you something manifest (and convincing).”Pharaoh said: “Bring it forth then, if you are of the truthful!” (Ch 26:16-31 Quran)The degree of the conflict expressed in this dialogue reached its apex; thus, the tone of dialogue changed. Moses used a convincing intellectual argument against Pharaoh. However, Pharaoh escaped from the circle of dialogue based on the logic and began a dialogue of another type, a type which Moses could not bear to follow; a dialogue of menacing and threatening. Pharaoh deliberately adopted the style of the absolute ruler. He asked Moses how he dared to worship Allah! Did he not know that Pharaoh was a god?After declaring his divinity, Pharaoh asked Moses how he dared to worship another god. The punishment for this crime was imprisonment. It was not permitted for anyone to worship anyone other than the Pharaoh. Moses understood that the intellectual arguments did not succeed. The calm dialogue was converted from sarcasm to mentioning charity, then to scorn, then to the threat of imprisonment.Moses said: “Even if I bring you something manifest and convincing.” Pharaoh said; “Bring it forth, then, if you are of the truthful!” So Moses threw his stick, and behold, it was a serpent, manifest. And he drew out his hand, and behold, it was white to a … Story of Prophets Musa (Moses) and Harun (Aaron)Read More »

    What Does Islam Say About Divorce? *Understand Islam **What Does Islam Say About Divorce?*The three religions have outstanding variations of their attitudes in direction of divorce. Christianity abhors divorce altogether. The New Testament unequivocally advocates the indissolubility of marriage. It is attributed to Jesus to have mentioned, “But I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife, except for marital unfaithfulness, causes her to become adulteress, and anyone who marries the divorced woman commits adultery” (Matthew 5:32).This uncompromising preferrred is, for sure, unrealistic. It assumes a state of ethical perfection that human societies have by no means achieved. When a pair realizes that their married life is past restore, a ban on divorce won’t do them any good.

The Old Testament provides the husband the best to divorce his spouse even when he simply dislikes her: “If a man marries a woman who becomes displeasing to him because he finds something indecent about her, and he writes her a certificate of divorce, gives it to her and sends her from his house, and if after she leaves his house she becomes the wife of another man, and her second husband dislikes her and writes her a certificate of divorce, gives it to her and sends her from his house, or if he dies, then her first husband, who divorced her, is not allowed to marry her again after she has been defiled” (Deut. 24:1-4).Wives, alternatively, can’t provoke divorce beneath Jewish legislation. A Jewish spouse, nonetheless, may declare the best to a divorce earlier than a Jewish court docket supplied {that a} sturdy cause exists.Islam occupies the center floor between Christianity and Judaism with respect to divorce.Marriage in Islam is a sanctified bond that shouldn’t be damaged aside from compelling causes. Couples are instructed to pursue all attainable cures at any time when their marriages are in peril. Divorce is to not be resorted to besides when there isn’t any different manner out.

If he dislikes one of her traits, he will be pleased with another” (Muslim). See Quran 4:19 additionally.Islam provides essential directions for the preservation of household relationship. Conformation to those directions paves the way in which for a powerful household bond and trouble-free matrimonial life. However, Islam shouldn’t be blind to the discords that will happen in household life. Islam recommends three sensible and scientific strategies to stop the severing of household relations because of discord attributable to lack of self-discipline.The first process recommends good recommendation, failing which one boycotts the mattress. If this additionally fails, delicate bodily punishment may be given, with out bruising her physique or thoughts. When all of the three strategies fail, the kinfolk of the couple can arbitrate and check out for a compromise. If this try additionally fails to reunite the couple, Islam permits a divorce in an honest method.Islam could be very stern on the difficulty of divorce and it’s allowed solely in completely unavoidable conditions.

    How People React When Trial Comes 💠 When it comes to facing trials, people behave in the following ways, and all of these are bad manners with Allaah:1️⃣. Blaming Allaah for the calamities: Even though the calamities we face are because of our sins, yet we like to transfer the blame on others to feel better.إِنَّ الْإِنسَانَ لِرَبِّهِ لَكَنُودٌ{Verily! Man is ungrateful to his Lord} 📚 [Surah al-`Aadiyaat (100): 6]Al-Hasan al-Basree رحمه الله said: “al-Kanood”, meaning: ❝The one who is ungrateful. He who counts the calamities (that befall him), and he forgets Allaah’s favors (upon him).❞ 📚 [Tafseer Ibn Katheer, Tafseer Ibn Abee Haatim]Man has a habit of complaining: “O Allaah! Why does this happen to me?”, “O Allaah! When will I find relief?”, “Why is it always me?”.🌴🌴🌴2️⃣. We complain to the creation about the Creator: Instead of raising the hands towards Allaah and beseeching Him for our needs, and for relief from our hardships, we complain to the creation that we have been suffering for so long. The whole night we can chat with our friends to get some solacement, but we cannot stand for an hour in the night.Every night Allaah descends to the lower Heaven and asks: {Is there anyone to invoke Me that I may respond to his invocation? Is there anyone to ask Me so that I may grant him his request? Is there anyone asking My forgiveness so that I may forgive him?} 📚 [Saheeh al-Bukhaaree and Saheeh Muslim]Yet we stay awake the whole night and sleep just before Fajr!🌴🌴🌴3️⃣. We stop supplicating altogether: The Hadeeth in this regard is well known: Allaah’s Messenger ﷺ said: ❝The invocation of anyone of you is granted (by Allaah) if he does not show impatience by saying: “I invoked Allaah, but my request was not granted.”❞ 📚 [Saheeh al-Bukhaaree and Saheeh Muslim]In the narration of Saheeh Muslim it is reported that the Prophet said: ❝The supplication of the servant is granted in case he does not supplicate for sin or for severing the ties of blood, or he does not become impatient.❞ It was said: Allaah’s Messenger! what does: “If he does not grow impatient” imply? He ﷺ said: ❝That he should say like this: “I supplicated and I supplicated but I did not find it being responded”, and thus he becomes frustrated and abandons supplication.❞📚[Saheeh Muslim (6595)]We are impatient and get frustrated very easily, and when we see there is a delay in the response to our supplications, we get disheartened and abandon supplicating altogether. Except those amongst us whom Allaah تعالى has protected.♻️♻️♻️We beseech Allaah that He تعالى guides us to always have good thoughts about him.The Prophet ﷺ said: ❝Let none of you die except thinking positively of Allaah.❞ 📚 [Saheeh Muslim (6875)]May Allaah accept it from you and us.

    How Important is Hadith in Islam? *Understand Islam **What is Hadith? What is the Importance of Hadith in Islam?*The two elementary sources of Islam are the Qur’an (the phrase of God) and the Hadith/Sunnah of the Prophet (PBUH). By Sunnah, we imply the actions, sayings, and silent permissions (or disapprovals) of the Prophet.Here, we’re involved with Sunnah in the sense of the recorded sayings (Hadiths) of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). In this sense, Hadith is thought-about to be second to the Qur’an. It is unimaginable to grasp the Qur’an irrespective of the Hadith; and it is unimaginable to clarify a hadith with out relating it to the Qur’an.The Qur’an is the message, whereas the Hadith is the verbal translation of the message into pragmatic phrases, as exemplified by the Prophet. While the Qur’an is the metaphysical foundation of the Sunnah, the Sunnah is the sensible demonstration of the precepts laid down in the Qur’an.The responsibility of the Messenger was not simply to speak the message, fairly, he was entrusted with a very powerful job of explaining and illustrating that message. That is the rationale why Allah Himself has commanded the next: “Say: Obey Allah and obey the Messenger, but if you turn away, he (the Prophet) is only responsible for the duty placed on him (i.e. to convey Allah’s Message) and you for that placed on you” (Quran 24:54)This verse clearly tells us the overriding significance of Hadith to Muslims. They ought to be desirous to study and comply with the teachings of the Prophet as expressed in Hadith. If we’re negligent in this respect, it is we who should reply earlier than Allah.Speaking of the significance of Hadith, we have to think about two broad facets of the topic. We know that Allah Almighty revealed the Qur’an to His chosen Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). So, it is by means of the Prophet we come to listen to the phrase of Allah; and it is the Prophet himself who can correctly clarify and exhibit the precepts in the Qur’an.Without the required explanations and illustrations given by the Prophet, the Qur’an could also be misunderstood and misinterpreted by folks. So, the Prophet took care to clarify and exhibit to his companions how the Qur’anic verses should be learn and understood. That is to say, the significance of Hadith is linked to the significance of the Qur’an.For instance, the main points of the way to carry out salah (ritual prayer), for example, got by the Prophet by means of his phrases and motion, and never by the Qur’an. This implies that we’d not know the way to pray, quick, pay zakat, or carry out Hajj with out the examples given by the Prophet as recorded in the Hadith. Indeed, all needed particulars are given in the Hadith, not in the Qur’an.The revelation of every of the verses of the Qur’an befell at some crucial junctures in the lifetime of the Prophet. Of course, there are verses of common utility and significance, no matter the context in which these verses have been revealed. But there are different verses that may be understood or interpreted solely in the sunshine of the particular context in the lifetime of the Prophet, which referred to as for that revelation. There are many examples, which additionally clearly proves us why we have to check with the life and instance of the Prophet to grasp the context, in addition to the that means of verses.In the Qur’an, Allah Almighty instructions us not solely to obey the Messenger, but in addition to abide by his selections. (Quran 4:65)And certainly, we discover such selections solely in the Hadith. The Qur’an additionally orders the trustworthy to emulate the function mannequin of the Messenger and reckons it to be the one approach to achieve the pleasure of Allah.It is subsequently compulsory that we glance as much as the Prophet’s morals and exemplary character and carry them out in our lives. We can by no means achieve this with out finding out Hadith.For those that wish to know extra about Islam:*WhatsApp Group*https://chat.whatsapp.com/GdbatrbOn1fHebCCP99bUa*Telegram Channel*https://t.me/understand_islam*Facebook Page*https://www.facebook.com/understand. … How Important is Hadith in Islam?Read More »

    Mu'awiyah bin Abi Sufyān Biography – 108 [Part – 1]الحمد لله ربّ العالمينThis is a brief Biography of Mu’awiyah bin Abi Sufyān Radhi’Allāhu’anhuma; we ask Allāh to benefit us thereby.60. Mu’awiyah bin Abi Sufyān رضي الله عنهماThe Uncle of the Muslims and Writer of Revelation for the Messenger of the Lord of the Worlds.His PedigreeHe was Mu’awiya bin Abi Sufyān bin Umayyah bin ‘Abd ash-Shams bin ‘Abdul-Manaf, Amirul Mu’minīn, the king of Al Islām, Abū ‘Abdir Rahman, Al-Quraishi, Al-Amawi, Al Makki,[ See: Siyar Aalam An-Nubalā 3/120.] uncle of the Muslims and writer of revelation for the Messenger of the Lord of the Worlds.His mother was Hind bint Utbah bin Rabi’ah. It is said that he accepted Islām before his father during the Umrah of redemption. However, his Islām did not become public until after the conquest of Makkah.Ibn Abi Dunya and others mentioned that Mu’awiyah was a tall, white and handsome man.His Virtues1. Narrated ‘Abdur Rahman bin Abi Umayrah (one of the Companions of Allāh’s Messenger ﷺ) that the Prophet (ﷺ) said to Mu’awiyah: “O Allāh, make him guiding, rightly guided and guide others by him.” [Sahih: see Sahih Sunan At-Tirmidhi 3018, As-Sahihah 1969.]2. From Abu Idrees Al-Hawlāni, who said: “When ‘Umar bin Al-Khatāab removed Umayr bin Sa’d from the governorship of Hims, he appointed Mu’awiyah to replace him and people began to say ‘Umayr was removed and Mu’awiyah appointed in his stead!’ ‘Umar said: ‘Do not mention Mu’awiyah except with good for I heard Allāh’s Messenger (ﷺ) say (about him): ‘O Allāh guide (others) by him.” [Sahih along with the preceding one: Sahih Sunan At-Tirmidhī 3019.]3. ‘Abdullah bin Amr also said: “Mu’awiyah used to write for Allāh’s Messenger (ﷺ).” [Its transmitters are trustworthy: Al-Arna’ūt [Siyar Aalam An-Nubalā 3/122.]4. Irbād bin Sāriyah narrated that he heard the Prophet (ﷺ) say: “O Allah, teach Mu’awiyah the (knowledge of the) Book, hisāb (calculation) and save him from the punishment (of Fire).” [Reported by Ahmad in Al-Musnad [4/127] in its chain is Al-Harith bn Ziyad Al-Shamee. Al-Hāfidh said in At-Taqrīb: his Ahadith are weak. However, the remainder of the transmitters are reliable. Adh-Dhahabi said: the Hadith has strong corroborations.][There are numerous reports about his virtues just as there are numerous others (which are not authentic) detracting from his prestige and whatever is authentic has its interpretation and understanding.]Umar bin Al-Khattāb appointed him governor of Shām and ‘Uthmān also reaffirmed the appointment during his own reign. Al-Imām Adh-Dhahabi said: “I say: It is a sufficient recommendation for the one whom ‘Umar and ‘Uthmān found worthy of appointment as a leader of a sea-port province. He took charge of the administration of the province in the best manner possible. His subjects were well-pleased with his generosity and forbearance. This is in spite of the fact that some of them would have received some hurt from him at a point in time. This is how a monarch ought to be. This is also in spite of the fact that there were other Companions who were far better and more righteous than him. He was a simple man possessing impeccable administrative knowledge and intelligence. His forbearance was superfluous. He was a shepherd most beloved by his flock. He ruled over Shām for twenty years and held the reign of the Khilāfah (authority of the entire Muslim world) for another twenty years, he ruled over the Arabs and non-Arabs alike. The two were included under his authority as it extended over Misr (Egypt), Shām (Syria), Iraq, Khurasan, Persia, the Arabian Peninsula, Yemen, Maghrib and many others.The Prophet’s (ﷺ) Testament to HimIt is recorded in the Musnad of Imām Ahmad that Mu’awiyah once took a water skin and followed the Prophet (ﷺ) with it. Then the Prophet (ﷺ) raised his head and said to him: “O Mu’awiyah if you are put in charge of the authority then fear Allāh and be just.” Since the Prophet (ﷺ) said this, “I never stopped thinking that I would be tried with the position of authority until I was tried with it eventually.” [Its reporters are trustworthy: reported by Ahmad in his Musnad (4/101)]Praises of the Companions for HimMen and Women Around the MessengerKurayb, the freed slave of ibn Abbās reported that he once saw Mu’awiyah pray Isha and then he offered his witr with one raka’a and nothing more than that. So I informed Ibn Abbās of his action and he said: “He is correct. My son, there is none of us who is more knowledgeable than Mu’awiyah. It (witr) is either one (raka’a), five, seven or more.” [Al-Arna’ūt said: Its transmitters are trustworthy.
