Q) From Ahadith I read that Rasoulullah Sallallahou alayhi wassallam has said he guarantees entry to Jannah for one who guards his tongue and private part from sin. Does it mean such a person when he dies a mu'min having stayed away from the above is guaranteed not to taste punishment of jahannam? What is the correct interpretation? Grateful for your guidance. I am asking this question because I have read that all Muslims will at some point be granted entry to Jannah on account of their imaan, but some only after passing through hell.
A) It means that the mu`min has guarantee, insha Allah, to die as a muslim. Because the holy prophet SAW is a guarantor of Jannah for that mu`min who controls his tongue and intimacy. There should always be a fear to die without imaan. Allah Ta`ala says: And let not you die except that you are muslims. The holy prophet SAW said that someone may be taking the whole journey on imaan, then on the last step, he did something kufr or so and lose imaan. Else it is an upgraded guarantee from the prophet SAW and may spare all azaab for that person.

Then beseech Allah to grant me Al-Wasilah, which is a high rank in Jannah, fitting for only one of Allah's slaves; and I hope that I will be that man. If any one asks Al-Wasilah for me, it becomes incumbent upon me to intercede for him." (Muslim)

Q) Is the venom of snakes najis? They use it in some medecine.
A) First of all know that the status of snake according to fuqahas is alike to cats(Inayah). That is it is haraam to consume it, but because it stays in the house, then there is tolerance to them as far as their saliva is concerned. According to imaam Abu Hanifah and imaam Muhammad r.a., the mixture of saliva or rest over of a cat is makrooh tanzeehi(Shami). But according to imaam Abu Yousuf r.a., the rest over of a cat is not makrooh at all. He state his view basing on the hadith of Abu Dawood that hazrat Aisha r.a. asked the holy prophet SAW about the status of a food that the cat put its tongue and mouth in it. The holy prophet SAW replied:’’It is not impure. These are between those animals that stays around you in the house.’’ Hence shariah opens up a door of tolerance to these animals that stays around us including their rest overs. 
But imaam Abu Hanifah sees it complex because the saliva is derived from the flesh. And the flesh is haraam. And on the other side, there is permission from sunnah. As such he classifies it as Makrooh Tanzihi. If ever a cat drink or eat in a recipient, then if you are rich, better avoid it and throw it away. But if you are poor or lack water, then you may take out the portion near where it ate and may eat it. You may use the water if you are lacking water. 
But over here the venom of snakes are used as medecine and a necessity. As such basing on the necessity of the medecine, we may opt for the opinion of imaam Abu Yousuf who says that it is pure and consumable. As such it is permissible to take medecine containing venom. Wallahu A`lam. 
Note that Fuqahas considered those animals that you cannot stop them from penetrating the house like cat, rat, snake and the kind. And that dog is not considered between them. The saliva of dog is unanimously impure. In fact there is warning on those keeping dog as a pet and without necessity.

A) The right of determining the place, time and who would conduct the salaat ul jazaazah is solely in the hand of the wali. The wali starts with the father of the deceased, the son or the brother of the deceased. If none are there, then the sons of those mentioned may decide for the mayit. Furthermore the imaam of the locality may read the salaah also. 
Nonetheless, the right to step in the grave also is reserved to the instruction of the wali. The wali may step down themselves or choose some other people to do it. It is better that those who are close to the mayit and particularly those mentioned step down in th egrave. But if not available, then the wali may instruct some people to do it. If no wali available, then any muslim man available should step down in the grave. In this case the husband also may step down the grave to put his wife in the grave.

In fact right after that action, do 2 salaahs of tawbah and be more regular with your 5 times daily salaah, whatever happens. Make tawbah nasuhah: that is make such a tawbah that you will never do it. insha Allah you will quit. Stay in the masjid for 10 mins daily at times of Ta`leem. Do Ta`leem of Muntakhab at home also.

3. Qamees: sheet which will cover from the neck till the feet. 
First place the lifaafah on the ground, then the izaar over the lifaafah and then the qamees. Using a pair of scissors make a slit in the qamees (big enough) for the head to pass through it. 
Pass the mayyit's head through the cut in the qamees and pull it down to cover the mayyit from the neck till the feet. Wrap the left side of the qamees on the center and then the right side over the left side. 
Now wrap the left side of the izaar and tuck it under the mayyit's right side. Then wrap the right side over the left side. Do the same with the lifaafah. Tie a string by the feet, one in the middle and another one at the head. 
For a woman, there are two extra pieces of material: the khimar (scarf) and the khirqah (the sheet which covers from the chest till the thighs). 
Place the kafan in this order on the ground: 1. lifaafah, 2. izaar, 3. khirqah, 4. qamees.
After wrapping the qamees, divide the mayyit's hair in two and place each of them on the chest (on top of the qamees) on the right and left side. Cover the hair with the khimar (scarf). Do not tie the khimar. 
Then start wrapping each sheet; left side first then the right side over it. Finally tie the three strings.

A hadith in Tirmizi reports that the prophet (saw) was asked as to what du'a was the most accepted by Allah, to which Nabi (saw) replied: du'a at the time of tahajjud and after farz namaz. So it's good to make du'a after farz namaz. Note that we lost about 5000 brothers and sisters, who were martyred by the Buddhist in Burma. Make du'a for them as well as for the Palestinians and Africans.

A) The destiny is knowledge of Allah Ta`ala. Whatever will come, has come is in the knowledge of Allah. We are prescribed to ask dua and ask for betterment in this life and in the hereafter. As such the result of dua is definitive. There is a concept of Taqdeer Mu`allaq that define destiny as flexible to certain extent and changeable. Hazrat Ali (r.a.) described destiny as one person being able to lift one feet up and the other feet need to support him on earth. That is part of it fixed and part of it in our hand. But in fact the choice to be taken of what is in our hand also is known in the knowledge of Allah. As such all destiny are fixed by Allah. But the holy prophet requested that we make effort and make dua and hope good from Allah Ta`ala. Destiny is used for the sad past issues so that we should not regret on them.

Because there is no clear proof to say that this bag or shoes belongs to the same person who took his bag or shoe. And even if the case is such, still it is regarded as a luqata because there was no mutual exchange in the transaction. It will be necessary to look for the owner. And if he can’t find the owner then he should give it in sadaqah on behalf of the owner, and if he’s poor himself then he may take it. Note: Luqata means a lost item found some where.

Q) I owe someone money but i am not finding him to return him his money. What should i do?
A) First you have to make a few public announcement in the press or on the radio.

The sawaab will go to him. Sadaqah is meant to someone who is poor. But if ever that person comes later, then still you will have to pay him.

Q) Why is it considered haram for women to drive in Arabia? Is women driving haram in islam? 
A) Because it is an exposure to the female in public. Drivers need their eyes to look and hence female eyes are to be watched during driving. Hence the government did prohibit driving as a closing door to fitnas and not as haraam. Not haraam since driving is to take the car from point to the other. If done as sahabiyahs and Hazrat Aisha or Asmaa r.a. did on their camels, with all due respect, then it is not haraam. Sometimes it becomes a necessity for some countries where there are insecurity that all movement can only be done in the car. But driving for a woman is not a necessity in most environment and should not be encouraged as such. One should evaluate one`s necessity and the mahrams may decide whether to teach their females to drive or not.

Q) My cat gave birth to 5 kittens. I don`t want to keep them. I heard a hadith that leaving a cat unattended may lead to Jahannam. I am unable to take a decision. Please help me.
A) If the kittens reached that strength that they may look for food themselves, you may leave them in a public area whereby the kittens may find their living easily. We recommend that you leave them away from a residential area, so as not to bother residents. The hadith report about a person who tied the cat and still leave it unattended such that the cat could not go look for food. The hadith also mentioned that the cat could not go to look for food even from insects under the earth. As such, as long as you leave the kittens free in an open space, you will not be liable to zulm or injustice. Wallahou a`lam

Q) Is it possible for a human to see angels?
A) Angels are made invisible for human eyes. But it is possible that a human may see angel, if Allah wishes. Some sahabas did see angels. As for one sahabi, angels used to shake hands with him. One sahabi described them as candle lights. As such it is possible to see angels. By the way do you know that at this very time there are 4 angels around you? One is for good counselling, one for writing good actions and others protect you from evil effects. They are like ‘’guard corps’’ that are as strong as sumos defending us against satanic assaults. But a lie or an evil act repel them away. Else it is a good intention to keep piety and cleanliness so as to see angels one day, but know that the Qur`aan ordained us that we should have faith on the unseen and one article of faith is to believe on the existence of angels. So we believe in them whether we see them or not.

Si sa personne la li finne cause ou du tort, alors ou capave cherche avec Allah la justice. Mais souhetais ki eloingne li avec benediction Allah, li pas bon. Neanmoins si finne prononce malediction, alors si sa personne la pas merite sa malediction la, alors li retourne vers celui ki finne donne malediction.(Abu Dawood ; Tirmizi). Nous bizin aussi conner ki ene de banne raison ki amene dimoune dans jahannam c`est faire malediction pou narien.(Bukhari). Finalement nous bizin agir ou faire du tort dimoune de ene telle facon ki nous pas merite malediction dimoune. Parceki Allah Ta`ala li accepter ene malediction de ene opprime. ‘Pena rideau entre malediction de ene mazloom(injustement punis ou injustement prend so droit) ek Allah.’’(Bukhari) Ici pas finne mentionner musulman ou pas musulman. Donc en general nous pas gagne droit cause du tort n`importe ki etre vivant. Finalement Qur-aan finne envoye malediction collective lor banne dimoune coupable. Par example malediction Allah lor banne menteurs, mecrants,etc. Donc li permissible pou dire malediction collective lor ene certaine coupables d`apres Shariat. L`example de nous prophete(saw) ki meme apres ki banne habitants de Taif finne lapide li avec roches, li finne faire dua de hidayat pou sa banne la. Dans Uhud, quand le prophet finne tombe dans ene piege dans ene trou, li finne blesser et banne Kuffar finne envoye roche lor li. La aussi li finne faire dua et li pas finne faire bad dua :Oh Allah pardonne mo peuple.’’(Tabrani). Donc nous faire dua de hidayat et pardon pou meme banne celui ki finne cause nou du tort.

قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ إِنَّ الْعَبْدَ إِذَا لَعَنَ شَيْئًا صَعِدَتْ اللَّعْنَةُ إِلَى السَّمَاءِ فَتُغْلَقُ أَبْوَابُ السَّمَاءِ دُونَهَا ثُمَّ تَهْبِطُ إِلَى الْأَرْضِ فَتُغْلَقُ أَبْوَابُهَا دُونَهَا ثُمَّ تَأْخُذُ يَمِينًا وَشِمَالًا فَإِذَا لَمْ تَجِدْ مَسَاغًا رَجَعَتْ إِلَى الَّذِي لُعِنَ فَإِنْ كَانَ لِذَلِكَ أَهْلًا وَإِلَّا رَجَعَتْ إِلَى قَائِلِهَا َ

خَرَجَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ فِي أَضْحَى أَوْ فِطْرٍ إِلَى الْمُصَلَّى فَمَرَّ عَلَى
 النِّسَاءِ فَقَالَ يَا مَعْشَرَ النِّسَاءِ تَصَدَّقْنَ فَإِنِّي أُرِيتُكُنَّ أَكْثَرَ أَهْلِ النَّارِ فَقُلْنَ وَبِمَ يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ قَالَ تُكْثِرْنَ اللَّعْنَ وَتَكْفُرْنَ الْعَشِيرَ مَا رَأَيْتُ مِنْ نَاقِصَاتِ عَقْلٍ وَدِينٍ أَذْهَبَ لِلُبِّ الرَّجُلِ الْحَازِمِ مِنْ إِحْدَاكُنَّ قُلْنَ وَمَا نُقْصَانُ دِينِنَا وَعَقْلِنَا يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ قَالَ أَلَيْسَ شَهَادَةُ الْمَرْأَةِ مِثْلَ نِصْفِ شَهَادَةِ الرَّجُلِ قُلْنَ بَلَى قَالَ فَذَلِكِ مِنْ نُقْصَانِ عَقْلِهَا أَلَيْسَ إِذَا حَاضَتْ لَمْ تُصَلِّ وَلَمْ تَصُمْ قُلْنَ بَلَى قَالَ فَذَلِكِ مِنْ نُقْصَانِ دِينِهَا

Visitez sa mosquée et priez là-bas, parce qu’une salaat fait là-bas vaut mille fois plus qu’ailleurs» (Ibn Majah) C’est une prescription religieuse que de visiter et prier à Bait ul Muqqadas.

Q) My husband was a child of the bed. His mother was not Muslim when she met his father and had children with him. After having their oldest child, my husband, his father left when he was two years old. His father left due to issues that was going on between my husband's mother and him when they were together. They had a chance to reconcile when my husband was sent to live with him when he was 14 yrs old, this is when he met me because his father had kicked him out and told him to go an explore NYC. Now in later years after sooo many failed attempts my father-in-law wants to come in his life and this time I believe that his intentions are clear, but my husband wants nothing to do with him because of how he abandoned him when he was young and how he mistreated him when his mother sent my husband to live with him when he was 14.
I feel as if I am stuck in the middle of it, but my husband told me, "find a daleel or hadith that states I have to show him respect as my father and I will." He says that if Islam does not require for him to admit that they share blood then he will have nothing to do with his father. 
My main question is: Is there anything Islamic that states that a Kufar man who has a child out of wedlock with a women who then becomes Muslim may have the privilege to keep in contact and deal with the children that he had with her? Or are they the children of the bed and he has no right to neither of them to build a relationship with them?
A) The child born outside the bond of marriage is not the father`s child as per shariah. No inheritance, no family ties and no respect as father found in books. The holy prophet SAW said that the adulterer merit only stones to be pelted on him. Nothing more. 
But he is the means for him be born. As such fuqahas have expressed that the daughter born from adultery cannot marry the adulterer. Because he is the means for her to be born. As such there is a kind of consideration on that. But he is a human being and merit kindness as any human being. Even if a non muslim is in difficulty, we need to help him.

Q) Is it allowed to accept gifts and prizes in contest and quiz?
A) Yes, permissible.


Q) Les respects du qiblah et non pas appuyer son pied avec la ka`bah ? 
A) En bref, le Qiblah est le centre géométrique de la spiritualité et de respect. Au fait l`Islam nous enseigne le respect de la direction du qiblah en toute position de notre vie ou après la mort. Le saint prophète SAW a dit lorsqu`il était a Madinah : ‘’Lorsque vous partez au toilettes, ne faites pas les toilettes en faisant face vers le qiblah ou même ne lui tournez pas le dos. Mais plutôt tournez vous vers l`ouest ou l`est.’’(Bukhari) A noté que la direction du qiblah à Madinah est vers le sud. Donc le prophète a défendu de tourner vers le sud ou le nord et il a ordonné de tourner vers l`ouest ou l`est. Donc il est important de construire les toilettes en direction autre que du qiblah ou même a ne pas lui tourner le dos(Bukhari). Il est rapporté de Huzaifah et de Ibn Umar r.a. tous deux rapportant :’’ Celui qui a craché vers le qiblah, il aura son crachat sur son front le jour de la résurrection.’’(Abu Dawood, Ibn Khuzeimah) C`est pour cela qu`il est défendu de cracher vers le Qiblah. Il est rapporte de Ibn Umar r.a. qu`il est aussi défendu de cracher vers son coté droit. (Bukhari). 

Aussi il est défendu d`étendre ses pieds vers le qiblah. Les auteurs de Bahruraiq, fathul Bari, Urarul Ahkaam et Fatawa Hindiyah ont mentionnés ceci clairement puisque le symbole de la direction du Ka`bah est primordiale. Ainsi donc, même celui qui est alité doit pencher un peu son genoux afin de ne pas étendre son pied vers le qiblah(Muhit Burhani, BahrurRaiq et Dourarul Hukam) Au fait, pour comprendre, pourrait-on s`assoir devant le président avec ses pieds étendu vers lui? Soyons plus respectable envers les rites d`Allah. 

L`événement. 

Ceci dit, l`événement qu`un policier a mit son pied appuyé vers la Ka`bah est une outrance des relaxations a ce sujet. Lisez sur http://m.gulfnews.com/news/gulf/saudi-arabia/outrage-as-saudi-policeman-rests-shoe-on-makkah-s-sacred-kaaba-1.1339752. Nous joignons les autorités saoudiennes à condamner ce genre de manque de respect des symboles islamiques, sans réserves. 

Nous invitons les autorités à vérifier et ainsi a corriger les directions des toilettes des hôtels construites dans les cites sacrées de la Mecque et dans des autres endroits. Aussi on devrait avoir une loi pour rédiger les directions des toilettes. 

Et aussi ceux qui ont visites la Mecque savent combien de relaxations les arabes ont sur l`issue d`étendre ses pieds vers le qiblah. Au fait, il y a eu trop des relaxations ces derniers temps que les repères de respect des sites sacres ont disparu ou même certains ont été détruites. Et encore combien de relaxation ont survécu sur l`abatage mécanique des poulets. Nous invitons les autorités à mettre le sérieux dans l`issue de la chair qui arrivent dans les villes sacrées afin que les pèlerins ne soient pas victimes des relaxations. Il faut exiger que l`animale soit égorgée a la main d`un musulman et non pas a la machine. Au fait toutes relaxations apportent des outrances et on abuse ou on a franchit des limites. Certains Hajees mauriciens ont eu des poulets frigorifiés complètement non égorgées dans certains supermarchés de la Mecque. Voila des outrances qu`il faut corriger due a des relaxations. Soyons plus sévère en matière de respect des rites et des symboles islamiques. Au fait savez vous qu`il est makrouh tahreemi d`égorger un animale autre que la direction du Ka`bah. Hazrat Ibn Umar r.a. ne consommait pas de cette animale. Mais aujourd`hui il est triste qu`on a ouvert la porte a tous ces fatwas commerciales pour finalement trouver le porc dans un chocolat. Nous sommes en tort. Parce que nous avons trop eut de relaxation ces derniers temps. Les outrances et les excès de ces derniers temps sont dues a cause de trop de relaxation sur la matière de la religion. Saisissons nous avant que d`autres excès se produisent !


Q) Is the duty of a man to provide/build a house towards his parents FIRST or his wife? 
A) It is the duty of a husband to house his wife, whether by renting or having it for his own. It is also his responsibility to look after his parents. The shariah teaches us a distribution of time and also financial responsibility between the two. Thus the husband may decide to build a house first for his parents, but put it on his name for not complicating inheritance later on. Then he may build his own later on. But he should house his wife in a decent renting house all the time.

Q) Some people make books containing surah yasin/mulk +duas and distribute with the hope that when people read it will benefit the marhoom/a. What's your opinion about that? 

A) Insha Allah, it will benefit.

Q) When making action of issale sawaab for a dead person like reading quraan then distribute food. is there specific type of people the food given or everyone can eat it? 

A) It is not isaale sawaab to bring people to read and then to feed them. Yes, if you feed people without the reading condition, then you may feed relatives and non relatives, poor or rich, all will be isaale sawaab.

Q) Do every soul go to Barzakh; be it kafir or Muslim? Those souls who are getting azab, where are they, in qabr or barzakh?

A) Yes, they go to barzakh, but in different places. The good souls go to Na'eem, a place of peace and contentment. And the bad ones go to Sijjeen, a place of punishment. They are both mentioned in surah Mutwaffifeen in the Qur'an.

Q) Eski sa l`ordre Allah dans sourah Ahzab (33), verset 53 cote pe dire :’’Quand zote fini manger, disperser et pas rester pou rode cozer..’’ li applique ziste pou la caze prophet SAW ou bien li encore valide pou nous zordi ? 

A) Sa Ayat la finne revele dans circonstance de walimah de Umme Salmah r.a. quand quelques dimounes ti pe rester apres manger. Mais sa l`ordre ki apres manger bizin quitte sa place la et aller depuis sa li applique pou nous tous quand sa li pou donne difficulter sa la caze la. Si sa banne dans la caze la ouler ki nous rester, alors li permissible pou rester. Sinon permission pou reste dans la caze la ti ziste pou manger et non pas pou causer apres. Donc sa ayat la li pas ziste pou prophete so la caze, mais li pou tous musulmanes so la caze.

Q) I would like to ask some questions about Lucky Draw. I received some Lucky Draw Prizes Entry from a Magazine Company. I didn't pay any money and request anything for that from them. They just sent to me by free. If I get a prize from them. Is it Halal to use? 

A) Lucky Draw without paying money is permissible. But because there is tashbeeh or resemblance between the haraam draw-paying lottery- and this one, then ulamas withdrew permissibility of this draw also. 

Q) I'm having sexual feelings for my aunty. What should i do to stop that?  

A) Keep fasts and stay away from her even during the day.

Q) My eyebrows are thick and look like that of a man. Can I thread them?
A) If a woman threads her eyebrows to look beautiful and attractive, then it’s not permissible and there are severe warnings in the ahadith on this regard. But a woman who has thick eyebrows can thread them so much so that they may look like that of a woman.

 Q) Is it jaa'iz to sing or listen to a nazam/naat with the tune of a song?
A) It is not jaa’iz to sing or listen to nazams with music and nazams with the tune of songs. Similarly to read Qur’aan in the tune of songs, where one’s attention will go towards the song or one will get pleasure through it, is not jaa’iz.

Q) Can one make dua for forgiveness or intercede for a non muslim?

Q) For how many days can we keep our nail long ?
A) To keep long nails is against the Sunnah. Keeping long nails was considered as non civil practice and unsocial by sahabas. Hence it is not recommended since it may also prevent a pure complete wudhu cleanliness through accumulation dirts underneath nails. It is recommended as such to clean and shave every seven days. The limit to shave or remove hair under arm pit or private parts, cutting nails and trimming moustache is reported not more than 40 days. (Baihaqi) Beyond 40 days is makrouh tahreemi.

Q) Is the fear associated to eclipses (for example not going outside - especially for a pregnant woman ) found in Islam?

Q) You state that whales and dolphins are fish. Can I check if this is a direct interpretation, or a factual issue? I would note that whales and dolphins are air breathing mammals and not fish. This of course affects whether they are halal. I would also note that their capture also requires extensive suffering for the animals concerned. Any guidance that you can provide would be most welcome. 
A) The shariah defines whales and dolphins as fish linguistically and also by category. The large fish that is reported in Muslim shareef to be consumed by hundred of sahabis is believed to be the whale. Shariah does not take scientists view into consideration in category or definition. 

Q) Please tell me concerning the type of socks on which massah can be made.
A) There was cotton socks in times of the prophet. But the socks on which is sunnah to make massah is not the type of our cotton socks. Yes if you have mozas or sealzskin socks which are impermeable, strong to walk with and prevent dirt inside, then it is permissible to do massah on it. It is reported in the last Hajj, the holy prophet SAW ordered those who had mozas to cut it below ankles(sunan). As such sahabas could walk the distance of easily 25 kilometres with such socks. That is why ulamas disagree to equate our cotton socks with them. As such it is permissible to make massah on mozas and not on normal cotton socks. 

Q) I have a three year old daughter. I read surah yaseen and last two verses of surah bakrah daily and blow on her before leaving the house for my job. At that time she is sleeping.

Be polite and respectful and also create your own pious friends environment. Else go masjid and girls may create a special place for their salaah and ta'leem. Fazail a'maal and Muntakhab ahadeeth are worldly accepted book. Wake up tahajud and make du'as for parents and oneself deeni conscious.

Q) Is it true someone suffering from an incurable disease is a jannati?
A) No one can claim somebody else or himself as jannati. But there are sawaab and recompense for any hardship endured during sickness. As such for those who passed away it is better to say that ‘’the deceased was a good person and may Allah Ta`ala grant him jannatul firdost.’’

Q) Is it considered zina when a boy talks or sends sms to girls?
A) Yes, it is a kind of zina.

Q) What does Islam say regarding autopsy?
A) Performing an autopsy, on a human body voluntarily, is mutilating that body and forbidden according to shari’ah. In Abu Dawood, it is reported by our mother Hazrat Aisha (ra) that the Prophet Muhammad (saw) said:” Breaking the bones of a dead person is same like breaking them when he is alive.” But since the law exhorts us to perform autopsy in certain cases, thus in this case of an involuntary autopsy, we can only make dua that the dead person doesn’t suffer. Wallahou A’lam.

Q) Can one address Allah as « You »?
A) Yes, with the intention of being close to Allah, not disrespectfully.

Q) Last time u said it is not true zat someone dont know his death 40 days before but my dear one died yesterday and she was talking about death in the last few weeks. Y?
A) We answered the question according to this Coranic ayah: ‘’And nobody knows as to where one would die.’’(31:34). In fact only Allah Ta`ala knows what will happen tomorrow(see same ayat). Destiny lies in His Hands only. Hence on a general basis nobody knows where and when one would die. But this does not prevent Allah to inform anyone of his last hour. May be your dear one was informed through strong thoughts in the heart. But nonetheless, this cannot be taken as a preset example, since these are exceptions. The general ruling is to prepare before death. The Holy Prophet(saw) said:’’The intelligent is one who control his desires and do actions for his betterment for the life after death. The stupid is the one who follow his desires and then hope on the mercy of Allah.’’(Tirmizi) As such one should always be in preparation of death rather than speculating his time of death. Wallahou a`lam. You may find the following Q&A on the web:
Q) Is it true that a person knows about his death 40 days before he dies.
A) Not true. Only Allah knows that.

Q) I wished death for someone and it really happened. Now I’m feeling guilty and want to repent. What should I do?
A) Only Allah Ta’ala decides when a person will die or not. As long as you are not a direct cause of his death, you are not guilty. But your dua/curse might have been accepted by Allah. You can make up for this by giving sadaqah on his behalf, or read Qur’aan and send its isaal-e-sawaab to him. From now on, wish good for everyone and forgive and forget.

Q) Is talking to a na-mahram a zinnah? ex:a boy talking with his girlfriend?
A) Yes, it is zina.

Q) What is the dua for selfishness?
A) Read the last three surahs.

Q) I recently watched a documentary on Osama Bin Laden and by his humble manner of speaking he appeared in every way to be a true Muslim and I am convinced he was truly a mujahid in the cause of Allah, and all that was said about him were abject lies. An ayat was quoted in the documentary Surah 2 Ayah 114 if i'm not mistaken in which it was stated to respond with transgression with an equal transgression meaning if a yahood killed a muslim we are authorised to do the same. However I also remember a hadith which mentions answering evil with good. Could you please give the correct view regarding the above. 

A) The Qur-aan and sunnah has prescribed to first give da`wah and invite others to Islam with gentle and wisdom words so as they may accept it. Islam has not come to oppress any society brutally without them being invited to Laa ilaaha illallah. We have also being instructed not to be forceful on a nation to accept Islam or even to enforce Islamic law on them without them being invited to submission. As such you cannot apply Islamic law on a people without them accepting it. Our era is comparable to the era of Makkah for the prophet SAW. We need to be patient and keep steadfast for inviting others to complete Islam. Then will come a time when Jihad will become necessary. It is said that one should have at least that level of enthusiasm to fight and give one`s life for the sake of deen to be a true muslim. But the time is for da`wah and tabligh. Allah Ta`ala said: ''Keep your hands down'' and do not reply to the oppression of kafirs except by wisdom words to invite them to the truth. The Islamic activity of the time is da`wah and tabligh without violence. 

Q) Is it true that in this century (1400) the great signs of QIYAMAH will be apparent. For example: The fall of the zionist empire, the liberation of palestine, worldwide wars, the appearance of Imaam MEHDI, Etc.

A) One cannot denote a date for all this happenings. But one should always be prepared daily for all these happenings. Read the first and last 10 ayahs of surah kahaf for protection.

Q) I often ask myself but cannot find the answer as to why Allah does not end the crisis in Palestine and keeps strengthening the zionist jews who are incredibly strong militarily and causing grave injustices and suffering to the Muslims. My duas for the defeat of the jews for so long is not being answered. Why doesn't Allah intervene?

A) Allah Ta`ala has His established principles and protocols. He will definitely not react against these principles. We can get an idea of His principles from the Qur-aan principally and also sunnah of Nabi (SAW). Allah Ta`ala has promised His help to those who are steadfast in creed and good actions. All muslims have creed Alhamdulillah, but we lack good actions. The main daily obligation is 5 times salaah. If we take a survey on that worldwide, we find that the percentage of muslims praying daily salaahs is below 10 %. 

Allah Ta`ala has promised His help when the majority of the muslims are pious. So we need 51% of muslims praying so as to start having the help of Allah. In brief if a society produce 51% of good deeds with imaan, then that society would be protected insha Allah. Furthermore, some ulamas advocate that together with good deeds, we absolutely need to change our daily life and clothing. Mu`aasharat or the way to spend our life need to be Islamic, then Allah Ta`ala help a muslim community. The wedding happening, the clothing, the way of eating, drinking and also social inter-action need to be Islamic for us to attract the mercy of Allah Ta`ala. 

Indeed we lack Mu`asharat in all over the world. That is why, we are suffering from our down fall and oppressions. But on the other hand, we have hope that all these suffering is contributing for the upliftment and strengthening of muslims worldwide. Allah Ta`ala said about Bani Israeel, that we have made them super power due to their patience that they undertook during their enslavement under the reign of Pharaoh: 

Et les gens qui étaient opprimés, Nous les avons fait hériter les contrées orientales et occidentales de la terre que Nous avons bénies. Et la très belle promesse de ton Seigneur sur les enfants d’Israël s’accomplit pour prix de leur endurance. Et Nous avons détruit ce que faisaient Pharaon et son peuple, ainsi que ce qu’ils construisaient.(7:137) 

And finally, we should know that the wheel of power and reign is distributed through time. Allah Ta`ala want to turn the wheel of power to the non muslims nowadays. That is why muslims should not go fight against this will. but rather be patient and keep faith in Allah to die as a muslim. During the era of Makkah, the holy prophet SAW did not answer any crime against muslims. It is the will of Allah for us to be patient under the Kafir reigh and besieges. Read this ayah: Si une blessure vous atteint, pareille blessure atteint aussi l’ennemi. Ainsi faisons-Nous alterner les jours (bons et mauvais) parmi les gens, afin qu’Allah reconnaisse ceux qui ont cru, et qu’Il choisisse parmi vous des martyrs - et Allah n’aime pas les injustes(3:140) 

Our work should be to strenghen the muslims through strengthening of salaah and deen conscious. We need to bring together the heart and muslim countries also. The upper hand of others is due also of our split in the muslim world. To remedy all this, we found the tabligh jamaat is an ideal path to take so as to contribute to the beneficence of the ummah. Good deeds, group work and concern for the ummah. 


Q) I washed my hair and when it became dry i combed it. While combing i saw soap powder on the comb. Must i replace the namaz which i read when my hair was wet?
A) No. The namaz is correct inshallah. You did pour water over your hair before putting soap.

Q) Is it true if we do not make du'a in arabic then Allah does not accept our duas?
A) No, not true. Dua can be made in any language.

Q) Are women allowed to listen to Qiraat during menstruation? 
A) Permissible to listen to Qiraats during menstruation. Not permissible to read.

Q) I thank you for your reply, which means the wars in Palestine and Kashmir also are legitimate jihaad. However I wish further to know in the Mauritian context how am I required to fulfill the obligation of jihaad or even whether I have a duty to engage myself "militarily" that is. What about jihaad fin naafs, is it dissociated from the military jihaad? 
Are there conditions attached before enrolment such as being trained for combat etc or having responsibility of a family and old parents to look after? Does the desire and intention to fulfill the command of Allah to carry out jihaad count at all if we do not take part being far away from the zone of conflict and due to the lack of organisation to enrol? 
Is one person absolved from military engagement if others are taking part in the war and we either support them through duahs and financial assistance to the victims of the war. 
I read that when Imaam Mahdi will appear there will be a requirement to pledge allegiance to him even if you "have to crawl over ice". I have read that Amir Mu mineen will unify the ummah. 
The above questions have been troubling me since Osama Ben Laden had requested the muslims to take up arms, however I was confused regarding his modus operandi and terrorism is prohibited in Islam, I had doubts whether he was waging a genuine shariah war. (not observing the protocols of war) 
It is a fact that we seldom get discourses on them in the masjid except in "theory" i.e on the duty, merits and rewards of Jihaad and consequences of shying away from it, but we are not informed about what is involved and how to put it into practice. I have at the back of my mind the establishment of ALLAH's Khilafah on earth which muslims must work on. 
I shall be grateful if you could provide a detailed and concise reply regarding the above issues to help understanding. 
I apologise in advance as this is a sensitive issue and I am only seeking knowledge which is deficient on my part on this matter. 
A) It is imcumbent upon every muslim to have a desire for jihad in the heart. The prophet Muhammad SAW said if someone does not have this feeling, then he may die as an hypocrites. But overhere in Mauritius and nearby Seychelles, we need the jihad to preserve and uphold the kalimah. This jihad is the most important. Without it, the people`s faith would pale up and may disappear. So come to Ijtima on 11th,12th and 13th April in Goodlands so as to learn more on the going out for da`wah and preserving deen. Numerous ayats of the Qur-aan do hold the concept of going in da`wat out of the country is the main jihad. So get ready to go 40 days in the path of Allah.

Q) Surah Hujurat: Ayat 9: Does this Ayat implies that we should not fight between sunnat jamaat, tabligh jamaat, tawheed etc. We should reconcile among each others and live as brotherhood. Please shed some light on this dear brother.
A) We are all brothers. Differences of opinion is not fighting. Sahabas had differences of opinion, but they never had grudge.

Q) Does reading Quran in translation that is in english, creole or french equal to reading Quran in arabic? Quran is meant to read and understand, isnt? So if one reads the translation, is the sawab equal to reading Quran in arabic?
A) No. Arabic Qur-aan more rewarding.

Q) Is wearing underwear mandatory in islamic dressing code? If one has worn his trousers without underwear, does he have the right to perform namaz in this condition?
A) No, wearing underwear is not mandatory. If satr covered, salaah ok

Q) I have learnt that women are not allowed to go in mixed gatherings including wedding of close relatives. In case of a wedding where as one of the duties of a muslim is to attend, what is the rule? Is there exceptions that they can go in market or shops but not in wedding? 
A) When there is haraam and halaal mixed up, then abstain. That it is a duty to answer an invitation. But it is haraam to have intermingled gatherings with the opposite sex


Q) There are conflicts and wars being currently fought in the middle east and other parts of the world and I would like to know when and how will the call for "real islamic jihaad" be made (in the military sense) and when conditions that applies to answer it or support it. My question is mainly due to the difficulty in identifying and differentiating between a real mujaahid and a fighter waging a political war (for example Palestinian statehood, independence of Kashmir etc) Grateful if you could shed some light on this issue please. 

A) Hazrat Mowlana Yousuf Binnory r.a. answered that even those fighters for their lands also is jihad. When the Kashmir issue was raised during his era, there were people questioning the fight as whether it was jihad or not. Then they concluded that it is factually jihad since the main aim is to uphold muslim faith and defend the muslims. Allah Ta`ala says in the holy Qur-aan: Et qu’avez-vous à ne pas combattre dans le sentier d’Allah, et pour la cause des faibles: hommes, femmes et enfants qui disent: «Seigneur! Fais-nous sortir de cette cité dont les gens sont injustes, et assigne-nous de Ta part un allié, et assigne-nous de Ta part un secoureur»(4:75) This ayat was revealed when there were a few muslims left in Makkah and were persecuted. As such Allah Ta`ala ordered the jihad to save them. 

Q) Can we mark with pencil on the Qur'an?
A) Yes, permissible. But you need to be paak.

Q) Is masturbation a zinna?
A) Yes, it is zina with hand. There is severe punishment for this shameful act. Not only does that person may stand up the day of Judgement with his hands pregnant, but also he will have to face the shame in front of humanity. On top of that masturbation destroys health and causes impotency in middle ages. Premature ejaculation and sexual insatisfaction are result of masturbation that finally causes divorce. Scientist accuse masturbation as a major brain straining that result in some kind of guiltiness and depression. Students performance are clearly affected with such straining.

Q) Please explain the meaning of mustahab.
A) It's act that is recommended and rewarded.

Q) How to protect my car against evil eye...ever since my husband bought it we are having problem with it....we are wasting a lot of money...

''Allah reçoit les âmes au moment de leur mort ainsi que celles qui ne meurent pas au cours de leur sommeil. Il retient celles à qui Il a décrété la mort, tandis qu’Il renvoie les autres jusqu’à un terme fixé. Il y a certainement là des preuves pour des gens qui réfléchissent.''(39:42). There are hadith that says the virtue of sleeping with wouzu, that the rouh goes and make sajdah of Allah.
