content:

There are many virtues of praying regularly:

1- Prayer is one of the most virtues acts in Islam, and most beloved to Almighty Allah.

It was narrated that `Abdullah ibn `Amr said: “The Messenger of Allah said: ‘Adhere to righteousness even though you will not be able to do all acts of virtue. Know that among the best of your deeds is prayer and that no one maintains his ablution except a believer.'” (Ibn Majah)

2- Prayer prevents immoral sins and evil deeds:

Almighty Allah says,

And establish prayer. Indeed, prayer prohibits immorality and wrongdoing. (Al-`Ankabut 29:45)

3- Prayer expiates sins:

Jabir (may Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said, “The similitude of the five (obligatory) Prayer is like a river running at the door of one of you in which he takes a bath five times a day.” (Muslim)

Abu Hurairah reported: The Prophet (peace be upon him) said, “The five daily (prescribed) Prayer, and Friday (prayer) to the next Friday (prayer), and the fasting of Ramadan to the next Ramadan, is expiation of the sins committed in between them, so long as major sins are avoided.” (Muslim)

4- Guarding prayer is light, proof, and salvation:

Abdullah ibn `Amr reported: The Prophet (peace be upon him) said, “Whoever guards his prayers will have light, proof, and salvation on the Day of Resurrection. Whoever does not guard his prayers will not have light, nor proof, nor salvation. On the Day of Resurrection, he will be with Qarun, Pharaoh, Haman, and Ubay ibn Khalaf.” (Musnad Ahmad)

5- Prayer elevates one’s ranks and expiates sins:

Thauban (May Allah be pleased with him) said: I heard Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) saying, “Perform Salah more often. For every prostration that you perform before Allah will raise your position one degree and will remit one of your sins”. (Muslim)

6- It rescues from Hell, protects against danger, and enables a person to win Paradise:

Join Prayers at the Airport before Departing

Question: 

Is it permissible to join prayers when we are at the airport before departing? 

Answer:

In the name of Allah, we praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright.

This is a debated issues amongst the scholars of the past and between the modern day scholars as well. The question often asked is, does the travel begin with intention or when you leave the house?

Airports take the rule of being outside the city, regardless of it’s location. At the airport, everyone knows you are a traveler. If you are at the airport you take the rules of a traveler and it is allowed for you to combine prayers.

Reciting Basmalah during Prayer

Question:

What is the ruling of reciting the basmalah (bismillah ar-rahman ar-raheem) before reciting Al-Fatihah (Opening Chapter of the Qur’an) and other verses of the Qur’an while offering prayer?

Answer:

In the name of Allah, we praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright.

Reciting Basmalah before Surat Al-Fatihah (the Opening Chapter of the Qur’an) and other surahs of the Qur’an is highly recommended (confirmed sunnah). 

The sound narrations from the Prophet (peace be upon him) indicated that he used to recite Basmalah during prayer before Surat Al-Fatihah and before other surahs but he did not recite it out loud in the prayers in which he recited Qur’an out loud.

The Standing Committee of Fatwa in Saudi Arabia said:

“If (the worshiper) is going to recite a surah after Al-Fatihah, he should recite Basmalah silently beforehand. But if he is going to recite a brief passage from the middle or end of a surah, then it is not prescribed for him to recite it.”

Forgetting Verses or Making Mistakes in My Prayer

Question:

What should I do if I forgot verses or made mistakes in my prayer?

Answer:

In the name of Allah, we praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright.

To avoid mistakes and confusion, it is always better and safe to recite the verses you are sure about and you have memorized well. If your mistake is with the recitation of Fatihah, you have to repeat the raka`h (part of the prayer), since Prayer is not valid without reciting Surah  Al-Fatihah (the Opening Chapter of the Qur’an).

Surahs other than Al-Fatihah are cosidered an act of sunnah and even if you make mistakes in them, your prayer is still valid. To get more information about such ruling, watch this short talk with Sheikh Waleed Bayouni.

title: How Could One Attain Khushu during Prayer?,

Attaining Khushu During Prayer, How?

Question:

How could one attain khushu (humility or humbleness) from the beginning of prayer to the end? 

Answer:

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright.

Almighty Allah says:

“Certainly will the believers have succeeded. They who are during their prayer humbly submissive.” (Al-Mu’minum 23:1-2) 

Khushu refers to the submissiveness, gentleness, humility, yearning, and quietude (out of love as well as fear) within the heart due to the consciousness of Allah’s Greatness and Grandeur.

Our inability to concentrate during prayer is a deficiency on our part and it affects the quality of our prayers. As Muslims, we get over any problem by first seeking the help of Allah Almighty and this is the first thing you should do when you lack concentration in prayer. `Uthman ibn Abu Al-`As reported that he came to Allah’s Messenger (peace be upon him) and said: Allah’s Messenger, the Satan intervenes between me and my prayer and my reciting of the Qur’an and he confounds me. Thereupon Allah’s Messenger (peace be upon him) said:, That is (the doing of a) Satan (devil) who is known as Khinzab, and when you perceive its effect, seek refuge with Allah from it and spit three times to your left. I did that and Allah dispelled that from me.” (Muslim)

title: Should Women Praying at Home Call Iqamah before Prayer?,

Iqamah before Prayer

Question:

Does a woman offering prayer at home call iqamah (second call of prayer) before offering prayer?

Answer:

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright.

There is a difference of opinion about this matter. This ruling is not limited to women offering Prayer alone at home. The question of should men and women praying at home call out iqamah has two opinions.

The correct opinion is the iqama should be called out. The evidence is found in Sahih Muslim. Although this is not conditional for the fulfillment of Prayer.

For More information about this ruling, watch this short talk with Sheikh Yahya Ibrahim.

Wiping over Hijab during Wudu

Question: 

What is the ruling of wiping over my hijab (head cover for women) instead of wiping over my head in wudu (ablution)? 

Answer:

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright.

It is permissible for a woman to wipe over her hijab (head cover) in the case of necessity, such as when it is very cold, or it is difficult to take off her hijab and put it back on.

In a fatwa of Sheikh Ibn `Uthaimeen in which he said, “The well-known view in the school of Imam Ahmad is that a woman may wipe over her khimar (a dress covering the head and the upper part of the body) if it goes under her chin, because it was narrated that some of the wives of the Companions (may Allah be pleased with them) did that.

Whatever the case, if there is some difficulty, either because the weather is cold or because it is difficult to take it off and put it on again, then there is nothing wrong with wiping in such cases, otherwise it is better not to do that. (Fatawa At-Taharah)

Wiping Ears during Wudu

Question: 

What is the ruling of wiping the ears during wudu’ (ablution)? Is it obligatory or just a Sunnah act? 

Answer:

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright.

The vast majority of scholars are of the view that wiping the ears is not mandatory. Rather it is recommended (an act of sunnah) during performing wudu. The majority of scholars have stated that wiping is not obligatory and that the ablution of one who does not wipe them is valid. However, the Hanbali scholars see that wiping ears is obligatory as it is part of the head. Their proof is the hadith in which the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said: “The ears are part of the head.” He used to wipe his head once, and he used to wipe over the inner corners of the eyes (that are close to the nose). (Ibn Majah

It was also narrated from Imam Ahmad (may Allah have mercy on him) is that if a person opts not to wipe his ears, his ablution is still valid. It is better to wipe it with new water, but wiping it using the same water used for one’s head or face also is allowable.

The Ruling of a Baby’s Urine?

Question: 

What is the ruling of the baby’s urine who is one-year-old? 

Answer:

The majority of scholars in Islam are of the opinion that the sprinkling of pure water is sufficient to wash the urine as long as the male child is still nursing. If the male child eats solid food, its urine must be washed from the parts of the clothes and/or body where the impurities might have touched. It is worthy to note that the wudu’ (ablution) of the person who is touched by the baby’s impurities does not break nor become invalid.

Umm Qays bint Mohsin narrated, “I brought my young son, who had not started eating (ordinary food) to Allah’s Messenger (peace be upon him) who took him and made him sit in his lap. The child urinated on the garment of the Prophet, so he asked for water and poured it over the soiled (area) and did not wash it.” (Al-Bukhari

`Ali ibn Abi Talib (may Allah be pleased with him) narrated that the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said concerning the urine of the child: “Sprinkle the urine of a boy and wash that of a girl.” (Authenticated by Al-Albani)

Qatadah said: “This applies so long as they are not eating food; if they are eating food then it must be washed in both cases.”

title: What Is the Ruling of Praying behind the Masbuq?,
content:

Taking the Masbuq as Imam in Prayer

Question:

If a person joins the congregational Prayer in last rak`ahs and then after Imam finishes the prayer he stands up, he is considered masbuq now. Then, someone starts a congregational behind him, making him Imam. Is it correct that a masbuq becomeس the Imam in the second congregation?

Answer:

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright.

Masbuq or latecomer is the person who joins the congregational prayer after the ruku` (bowing) in the first rak`ah. This is a controversial issue among the jurists, some of them like the Hanafi and Maliki schools are of the view that it is not permissible to pray behind the masbuq imam and thus prayer of the muqtadi (ma’mum) will be invalid.

On the other hand, Shafi`i, Hanbali and Imam Ibn Taimiyah are of the view that it is permissible for a person to pray behind the masbuq and such prayer will be valid. This the correct view. Sa`id Al-Khudri (may Allah be pleased with him) narrated that the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) saw a person praying alone. He said: “Is there any man who may do good with this (man) and pray along with him.” (Authenticated by Al-Albani)
