BEST TIMES TO MAKE DUA


Duas

There are certain times Dua is more likely to be accepted by Allah (SWT) as mentioned by Prophet (pbuh). Some of these times are as follows:

1. THE LAST THIRD OF THE NIGHT

The Prophet (pbuh) said: “When it is the last third of the night, our Allah (SWT), the Blessed, the Superior, descends every night to the heaven of the world and says, ‘Is there anyone who invokes Me (demand anything from Me), that I may respond to his invocation; Is there anyone who asks Me for something that I may give (it to) him; Is there anyone who asks My forgiveness that I may forgive him?” (Bukhari, Volume 8, Book 75, Number 333)

Qasr At The Airport


Contemporary Fatawa, Fiqh

Q. We know that the Shariah has allowed us a concession of performing two Rak’ah of salah in place of four when on travel. The concession is known as ‘Qasr’. The question is exact when should we start “Qasr” after leaving our home? Sometimes we have to perform prayer at the airport of our city. Can we avail of the Qasr concession when praying at our airport or on our way to airport?

Jumah Prayer While On Journey


Contemporary Fatawa, Fiqh

Q. “What is the position of jum’ah prayer in journey? How far the jum’ah prayer is mandatory when one is on travel?”
(Ibid)

A. Jum’ah prayer is not mandatory (fard) on a traveller. It is permissible for him to perform the Zuhr prayer instead of Jum’ah. But since the Jum’ah prayer is far more rewardable than the normal Zuhr prayer, one should not miss it as far as possible even when he is on journey.

Pakistanis And Indians Where To Wear Ihram


Fiqh, Hajj - Merits and Precepts

It is noteworthy that for the Afaqi people Ihram is obligatory to be worn on Miqat or on the point confronting Miqat. It is not permissible to step forward towards Mecca without Ihram beyond Miqat or the point confronting Miqat. If anyone does so, he will be under obligation to offer Dam.

Yet it is not only permissible but also preferable to wear Ihram before Miqat or the point confronting Miqat.

Since the introduction of traveling by aeroplanes, there have been two routes for Pakistani and Indian travellers. One is the sea route and the other is the air route. There are separate rules of action regarding Ihram for both the routes.

Beliefs & Practices, Major Sins

{Serve Allah and join not any partners with Him, and do good to parents, kinsfolk, orphans, those in need, neighbors who are of kin, neighbors who are strangers, the companion by your side, the way-fairer( ye meet) and what your right hands possess: for Allah loveth not the arrogant, the vainglorious} (An-Nisa’: 36)

The Sunnats and Mustahabs of Adhaan and Iqaamah


Bahishti Zewar, Fiqh, Part 2-Salat and its virtues

The Sunnats and Mustahabs of Adhaan and Iqaamah

The sunnats of adhaan and iqaamah are of
two types. Some are related to the mu’azzin while others are related to
the adhaan and iqaamah. We will first mention the sunnats
related to the mu’azzin, and then those that are related to the adhaan
and iqaamah.

Sunnats related to the mu’azzin

1. The mu’azzin has to be a male. The adhaan
and iqaamah of a female is makruh-e-tahrimi. If a woman calls out
adhaan, it will have to be repeated, but not the iqaamah. This is
so because repetition of the iqaamah is not stipulated as opposed to the
repetition of adhaan.
