Recitation of the Quran

26. Rasûlullâh sallallâhu ‘alayhi wa sallam said: “The person who recites a single letter of the Quran will receive one reward. And the basic principle with regard to rewards is that they are multiplied ten fold. I do not say that Alif Lâm Mîm is one letter. Instead, Alif is one letter, Lâm is one letter, and Mîm is one letter. Based on this, one will receive 30 rewards.”

Hadrat lmran bin Husain (Radi Allaahu Ta’ala Anhu) narrated that he heard the Messenger of ALLAH (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) say; “Vows are of two kinds; so if any one vows to do an act of obedience, that is for ALLAH, it must be fulfilled; but if anyone vows to do an act of disobedience, that is for the satan it must not be fulfilled but must make atonement for it to the extent he would do in the case of an oath.”[Nisai, Mishkat]

Descriptions Of Jinayat

Fiqh, Hajj - Merits and Precepts

Violations of the restrictions of Ihram and other dictates of Hajj are called Jinayat. For these Jinayat the revealed law of Islam (Shari’at) has imposed some penalties details of which may be seen in comprehensive books. We give here an account of only very necessary dictates for often occurring events. Jinayat of Hajj are divided into two kinds. Firstly the violation of restrictions of Ihram that is to say the commission of those practices which have been prohibited during Ihram. Secondly to abandon any Wajib out of the Wajibat of Hajj or to be lacking therein in any way.

Three Kinds Of Hajj

Fiqh, Hajj - Merits and Precepts

Defining one’s intention (Niyyat) exclusively for ‘Hajj’ Pilgrimage on starting the journey and wearing ‘Ihram’ with this very intention. ‘Hajj’ and ‘Umra’ are not added together. The Hajj of this kind is called ‘Ifrad’ and its’ observer is named as ‘Mufrid’.

Adding ‘Hajj’ and ‘Umra’ together and defining one’s intention for both of them from the very beginning. ‘Ihram’ is also to be worn jointly for both. It is called ‘Qiran’ and one who performs this kind is termed as ‘Qarin’.

Ayah Number Two

Chapter 01 - Encouragement towards performing Hajj, Dawah & Tabligh, Virtues of Hajj (Fazail e Hajj)

“For Hajj are the months well known, if anyone undertakes that duty therein let there be no obscenity, no wickedness, nor wrangling in the Hajj. And whatever good you do, be sure Allah knoweth it.”

In this verse the word ‘Rafath’ is used, meaning obscene speech. This may be of two different kinds. Firstly there is more strongly prohibited. Secondly there is that form which under normal circumstances may be allowed, but during Hajj (ihraam) becomes prohibited, for example in the case of love talk with one’s wife.

28) The Consumption of Haram

Beliefs & Practices, Major Sins

Allah, Glorified and Exalted be He, cautions us saying,

{And do not eat up your property among yourselves for vanities.} (Al-Baqarah: 188)

The verse means that Muslims are commanded by Allah to avoid taking the property of each other’s through illegal means. Abdullah Ibn ‘Abbas (may Allah be pleased with them both) said, “What is meant in the verse are the false oaths through which a person takes the property of another with no right.”

The consumption of Haram is of two kinds:

1) Taking another’s property through oppression such as in cases of treachery and robbery.
