it's quite common that when we repeat something, a number of times, we can become
absent minded about the importance of what we're doing. Sometimes, you know, when people are offering us five daily prayers and whatnot.
People don't concentrate on what they're reciting in their prayers and become a little bit
absent minded, as I mentioned, and it may happen with fasting as well. So I guess, it's very important for us to focus on the importance of last to remain sincere to Allah subhanaw taala. And remember that,
for our actions can be accepted by Allah subhanaw taala, then we must remain sincere, and that actions are done for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala not for anything else. And bearing in mind also that actions when we offer these actions, they must be in line with the Sunnah of the Prophet. As I've said, Remember, these two conditions for the
acceptance of our deeds will go a long way, in helping us get through each day and getting the most reward from our last panel, Ted, so we're MyLincoln have remained sincere, and ensuring that all that you do is in line with this level of sort of loss of Allah, we set them all out in a
reminder versus get stuck into the question Shala we've got a lot of questions coming in hamdulillah just reminder again, if you want to ask any question at all, just type it in the comment section below. Or you can email us at daily QA at Islam. 20 one.com So our first question here is from brother Harun, he says salam alaikum is praying five times a day and other praise font or wajib.
With regards to the terminology of follow, and wajib then with the vast majority of scholars, the integer interchangeable terms that they are one of the same thing, okay. So whether it's first of all logically, according to the majority of Scholars is the same so the five daily prayers can be wajib. The five daily prayers are also thought of, however, according to the mashup of Imam Abu Hanifa Rahim Allah, they make a differentiation between the father and the wajib. So, the father is when he will consider Arcade is more emphasis emphasis on that, in that any thing established through automatic means either through the Quran or through mutawatir which is multiple
numbers in each chain of the narration, which is a multilateral Hadith, anything is established wire that means is considered and anything which is considered if you like, established by a head means this is something which is considered wajib. Allah
does that answer. Another question is from YouTube. This is from Mr. M as our
Could I ask the ruling about the prayer after fajr? Do you have to stay in your position? Are you not allowed to speak to anyone or does this only apply to Fajr in congregation? I assume they're talking about the just after sunrise? Yeah.
No, actually, there's a hadith which meant
Since that is a Hadith and most notably mama heard that whoever praised a lot of Gemma and remains in their place mentioning Allah subhanaw taala throughout and then after that, as you rightly mentioned, then praise to rocker, that right to rocker will tag Omar will do Hajj or Umrah will we equal to and Hajj and Umrah
there are a number of different over the authenticity of the narration.
Some of them need to be weak. Others have said no it is Hasson it can be accepted. But if you do accept it as being Hasson Hadith, then requirement of the as you bring Serato drummer in the masjid
Hola, hola. Circular fascia. And what about in lockdown? If the matches are closed? Yeah. So if it is the case, at the moment, that this is your usual practice, this is your usual practice that every day you're in the masjid, and you sit from the congregational prayer, all the way to sunrise
to get that reward. If the rule of the hadith is authentic, and you can't do that you're prevented from doing that then we hope our last point I will reward you about that what you should do from your actions in Charlotte, Diana. Exactly.
Next question is from the same person M Zed are they said we're raising money to feed poor fasting people in Syria and Pakistan by selling cakes? Can we use sadaqa slash Zakah to buy the cake ingredients?
Right So number one, you can most certainly use sadaqa
to buy the ingredients for cakes and whatnot. However, with regards to occur, it is only allowed for you to use this money
if it is those recipients from the categories which are mentioned in Surah tilbyr. So if you're just selling cakes to people like who are not deserving of zakat, there's not permissible for you to use that as a care money to purchase the ingredients for those cakes because the cakes are not going to the correct recipients.
So just to clarify is that the people who are the cakes are actually going to or the profits from the cake sales. Now what was before you even get the profits the care money can't be used to buy those ingredients to make those cakes, which are just sold to anyone and everyone can money must be an only used for specific recipients. Watercolor fixture Exactly.
We have another question from YouTube. I was wondering how I will wait my gold and give the kind of month of Ramadan since the jewelry is shops are closed because of the virus. So
what should I do? Yeah, sure. So what you can do is if you don't have a weighing scales at your home, then you can purchase online I'm sure you can purchase the cheap scales, from those online supermarkets, whatever the case may be, and use that as your means to where your golden child can. Very easy solution chapter.
This one's a next one's from Israa. It's an interesting question while the angels ever die.
Yeah, so the first column and Ally have fun we have
a column is a verse
the ultimate use that all will die, all will die.
And this is a
view of some of the Sunnah, that everyone in the universe will die.
Except that there is another verse again in Surah Zoomer
except when Allah subhanaw taala commands, the trumpet to be blown, that every will will pass away, except whom Allah subhanaw taala wishes not to. Now there is a discussion over that who they are. Some of them are discuss. It's not an absolute matter, I must say it's some discussion between the scholars, some say some of the servants of the paradise that they don't die, they escaped that. Some mentioned some angels.
Allah, Allah is doing those must have in general, everyone on earth will die for love to
color faster and that is during the on the trumpet is blown and then resurrected. Now.
This next one is an interesting question from first year.
How should our
what should our mental state be when we're making dua for this dunya Do we believe that Allah will granted to us
because our mental state will affect our performance in attaining that thing? Okay, so Allah subhanaw taala
tells us a very beautiful verse in the Quran or Bennett, you know, dunya has an overfill it has an opening either but not give us the good
this life and the hereafter unstable.
So as a person makes me for something in this worldly life,
if you want to protect yourself from not falling into something which may cause you some problems, then you ask Allah subhanaw taala that what you are asking for from this worldly life serves to benefit you in this life and ultimately in the hereafter. Okay, so if a person is, let's say, making dua for wealth, which can, you know, destroy many people, but you ask Allah subhanaw taala Oh Allah grant me wealth, so that I can spend it in your way, which will help me Of course, in this life and inshallah more importantly, in the hereafter. So by all means, make dua for worldly matters, but to help yourself, also make your own with that, that it helps you on your journey in this life into the
I mean, exactly.
Next question here is from Osman.
With work and other family life, I find very little time to read the Quran. And I don't feel I'm benefiting spiritually What should one do in these situations to gain maximum benefit?
Well, you know, everybody's situation is different in Ramadan.
If you don't feel that you're benefiting or not feeling that spiritual kind of feeling Ramadan, maybe I understand that we all have busy lives, but it might be the case that you need to
do a bit more in the free time that you do have is maybe just spend more time reciting Quran or listening I'm not sure what kind of job you do, but maybe listening if you had if you can
listen to some benefit beneficial electrodes or listen to the Quran. And to do something if you're allowed to do that, of course not to take away from your job, of course you have responsibilities to your job, but whatever you think that you can do, which will help you like like everybody else, everybody else is striving to, to feel that kind of Ramadan vibe to feel close to Allah subhanaw taala. And that comes about by you know, pushing yourself and doing extra things in this month. May Allah make it easy for you.
We have another question here. This is from Yeah, what is the ruling on Kedah, Salah? And how do we pray them? Second part of the question, what's the ruling on Salah that Bella pada wasn't missed years ago.
So in Islam we have the word cover of Gaza is used. And this essentially means that you're making up your prayers. Now. There's different reasons why people will offer their prayers at a later time. If a person has been negligent, okay, and just as not prayed, and then they want to make cause out of it. Okay, then first and foremost, you've sinned, because delaying your prayers beyond their time is haram is not allowed to do that. There are some views In fact, according to minority view, that if you delay your prayers beyond that time, that there's no making that up. Time for it has gone just as like a person wants to pray. So a lot of blood at 930 in the morning. It's not going to be
accepted before it's time. So it won't be accepted after the title.
Nonetheless, if a person
negligently he has delayed the prayer, then they should offer the pressure, offer the prayer, ask Allah subhanaw taala for forgiveness and offer the prayer, it may be the case that you're not rewarded. But it might be the case that if you repent
sincerely, that you may not be punished for for leaving it. That's for the negligent as for those who have a reason, let's say for example,
you're a traveler.
Or you're, you have a reason to delay your prayer for whatever reason.
You may call that part in some way. I mean, others call it you're praying it but you have a legitimate excuse to delay it, then simply you just offer it in its time or in the delay time for your valid reason.
So what some people just to add upon that what some people might ask you if say, for example, they wake up late and they miss. Do they just pray at that time? Or do they wait until the Lord of time just for that? Okay? So if a person wakes up after selected legitimately, you know, let's say it's eight o'clock in the morning you woke up late at half seven in the morning.
The Prophet Celeste told us in the sound Hadith that if any one of you forgets or sleeps past a prayer than they are to pray immediately, and that there is no explanation or making up for it except that you do that in Charlotte and so you will be required to make up the prayer. Another common question is, especially with hijab, do I pray my son or not? Yes, you pray your sunnah you pray your Sunday before and then you pray your follow up after that.
circular fashion. I just remind the brothers and sisters if you have any questions, please do type them in the comment section below either on YouTube or Facebook or Instagram. I think Twitter will also streaming too and it may be a bit of a
A sensitive question you can email us at daily QA at Assam 20 twenty.com. So this the next question chef,
spirit have a long one, I'll just read it out, so bear with me.
Brother called Omar, he said that I need to buy a house as an absolute necessity for my family. Just a very basic one. After saving for quite a while, I still didn't have enough capital. But luckily I got a loan from my relatives, which then meant I was in a position to financially finally purchase the house just before the COVID 19 lockdown the houses were about to go to the market. And I was very close to buy and then But then the sale was delayed until the lockdown was over within the next two weeks as Ramadan entered it means my as a cause. Now during my savings, is there any way I am exempted from this year's occur, as I have already intended to buy the house, but emergency lockdown
delayed that purchase that gives a cow will not be able to buy it and an absolute necessity. So that it can imagine is probably a large amount of money that they were about to
use to buy a house.
Yeah, interesting question. Yes, you're right, first and foremost, may last month and make it easy for you. So there's a couple of issues here. The first one is that
if you do have money at a particular time and Zakat is due and you haven't yet purchased or you're saving up for an item then
this is the product of Allah subhanaw taala, this guy would be due on that amount.
there's a couple of things I want to mention on the side of this, I appreciate you you feel it's a necessity.
And you have to pay zakat on it. But the thing is, the first thing is that because that guy is only 2.5%. So every 100,000 pounds, you've seen that's two and a half 1000 pounds of one analysis, right? Okay. So that's less on Yeah, 100 Unless it's, you know, if a person has saved like a million pounds, then you start talking about, you know, maybe some serious amount of 25,000 pounds, which is could be a quite a big dent into the savings that you have.
But since there is only 2%, it's not there to to make people poor. That's not the idea of Zika. And first and you know, remembering that it's Wednesday is due, but that money that's due is no longer yours. Okay, can't delay paying, oh, it's like I'm doing a favor, this money doesn't belong to you anymore. And it needs to be given to those who are deserving of that. And another issue also that it may be on another's best that if you haven't signed anything,
on the dotted line, the houses, it might be the case along I suppose that their prices of houses may come down due to this. Of course, I know especially speciality in, in real estate, okay. But it might be the case that the prices of houses actually may come down quite a lot.
So it may be the case, you may save some money in the long run. But nonetheless, this is something that our last panel is testing you with as we all face tests. So there's a guy wouldn't be do and I asked him to make it easy for you. I mean, I mean, it's good question on the list.
This next question is from Brother Jamil.
I wanted some advice.
As you're gone.
I want some advice on what?
Okay, it's been deleted. I want some advice on what should I should do.
I have recently sold my house and I have quite a lot of money sitting sitting in the bank, I shall have to borrow Cola, I wanted some advice on what I should do with the money. Also, if I purchase gold online is not hand to hand. So what should I do any recommend? Would you in recommending any recommended and recommendations for buying gold? Rather than keeping our money cash especially the world situation financially? Yeah. So during the time of the Prophet alayhi salam, there was a companion who was looking after the wealth of some orphans.
And they had lots of money. So the Prophet alayhi salam said to this particular companion, so is that there's a cat doesn't just every year, kind of take away away from their savings, why don't you invest it in something? So in general terms, I would say to Yes, it would be very good for you to invest
something that inshallah to Allah will bring some form of profit and benefit to you as to what specifically then I'm not in a position to tell you exactly what you should invest in. There are 100 specialists who are involved in finance, where they can give
You professional advice in where to place your money I don't want to be responsible for telling you brother go and invest your money and so and so plus you go ahead and do that and then you try to find me, okay? It's a big problem for me. So therefore I would say to you find a specialist in you know, investments and so on and so forth. You can give you some advice on
circular five good advice. And just to say my own neck as well any advice any financial advice or anything given during this program is intended as advice only to seek
professional help for financially if you do happen to have lots of money and wondering what to do with it. On a completely separate note, I just like to remind the brothers and sisters to visit donate donate stamped on etsy.com and to help some genuine see as one of your Ramadan
projects to support such nephila. Another question we have now is from this is an investment for the year after re investment for the hereafter. Hamdulillah
we have a question from Jamil my teeth bleed
every morning when I brushed does that break my fast? Okay, so it's more likely your gums are bleeding, not your teeth. But the point is that if they do bleed ever so slightly, then inshallah to it don't break your fast.
But on a side issue, if it's a continuous issue, you might want to
call today dentist to find out if there's a gum disease or if there's an issue. Maybe you're brushing too hard. Or maybe there might be a side issue which you might want to look into inshallah Tada, but it doesn't break your fast as long as you're not swallowing anything like blood and whatnot, you spit it out.
Okay, exactly. And on that point, a lot of people asked about actually brushing their teeth is an issue during Foster. Yeah, so the use of Miss was is permitted while fasting. So it stems from that does the toothbrush
take the place of a miswak? If you don't put the toothpaste on, then yeah, it takes there's some similarity on that now placing toothpaste on it, places you at some risk
that you may swallow it.
If you can minimize the amount of toothpaste that you're going to use.
And thoroughly rinse your mouth at the end. And Charlotte's permissible. But remember, just to really minimize the amount that you're going to use and thoroughly rinse your mouth at the end and try like set up for my one o'clock. And also just a reminder, if you want if you're just tuning in, the way you can get your questions asked on air is just type them in the comment section below on YouTube and Facebook. And if you want to email us you can email daily QA at Islam 21 c.com. Next question is from Mr. H. A very simple question is Witter obligatory
according to the majority, it is a highly stressed son, that it's not befitting that you leave it there's a minority view that it is worship, but they all agree that it is a type of Salah that really shouldn't be left. And in fact,
Imam Muhammad Rahim Allah if he knew that a person would persist and inconsistently leave Witter, then that person's testimony wouldn't be accepted.
This is how they saw the importance of a Witter. So even if you don't take the view that it's not word, I'm not going to do it, even if you pre won or like, okay, which if you want to recite, you know, sort of refer to her and follow Allah who had, it won't take you more than a minute, a minute and a half, if you really want to create quite quickly if you like. So, it's not befitting for the believer to leave it is a big discussion amongst the scholars, whether it's widely or not, which I'm not, I'm not in a position to kind of give them the answer, which solves all the discussions on what in a position to do, but really you should offer it
and the bare minimum for that you're seeing is just one worker. That's efficient. Yes, you can pray selected within one block.
Especially if I would I would maybe add to that as another question sub question. That is, if people are in the habit now waking up for so hold just before Fajr is it advice for them to wait to pray with them or just before they go to sleep?
So the Prophet alayhi wa sallam told us in a soundside youth to make a lot of what to do your last prayer of the day.
So if you pray earlier in the night and you don't intend to pray later on, then you pray your Witter after your Isha and after some record of Torah, we then you pray with it. If your intention is to pray later in the night, then obviously, you would delay a lot of Witter to the very last pot.
There's a another question here from
us as if I think it's spelt US v. But if a name is asked Fiona is presented as if I apologize. Can a person be an imam? When they praying if they don't have a bit
due to lock down because people think Yeah, sure. Yeah. So
a beard is not a condition
for you to lead people in Salah.
So if you're at home, and you want to lead your family in Salah
and if you shave then okay, it's a separate issue, but by all means, you can lead your family and solo males can totally increase you.
we have another question here.
If is it more affordable to do good deeds in the days or the nights of Ramadan?
on a sub question, just for example, imagine as somebody is planning to get through X number of pages of Quran or just a day, should is it better for them to do while the fasting or in the night on the last set of the night? Yeah. So there are certain things which are specified to specific times. So the last third of the night is the best time for you to offer nephila Pray, the best time for you to make dua, for example, okay, that would be better than the daytime because that's the specific time as we find in the sound Hadith, that Allah subhanaw taala descends to the lowest heaven. Now, as for giving general charity or reciting Quran, whether it is the day or night, Allahu
Allah, I don't know of any evidence to state
which is better. Allah knows best.
There's another question here.
Should when should children fast? Is it the same? What age? Should they start fasting? Is it the same age as when they start the prayer at 10 years old? Or is that when they become post puberty? Yeah.
So the obligation is to see when they reach adulthood, when they reach the age of puberty, when they become biological, that's the obligation but before that, like anything, as the prophets I send them, you know, encouraged us to teach our children to prayer at the age of seven onwards, similarly, you know, if they can start practicing fasting, even if it's half a day, okay, they're very young, and they can't fast the whole day, no problem. Maybe they went too fast, the last three or four hours of the day, and then they break fast with you. So there's some form of kind of turn it into some form of practice with them.
But whatever is easier for them, especially with a bad we want them to love it. We don't want him to hate it. Okay, so let them do what is comfortable for them inshallah. Tada.
Okay, so just in summary,
10 is for the prayer. But then they actually become remotely responsible for that. puberty. Puberty, yeah, that doesn't have a particular age.
It might, what it may have a particular age have none of the signs appear, which is the age of 15 Islamically. But most cases, that the person the child has reached adulthood before that. So will the parent before that will the parent then be sinful if the child isn't praying and fasting, when they're like, just before puberty if they're not doing the encouragement and so good, so with regards to Salah
the encouragement that the Prophet Ellis's gave to us as parents from the age of seven and then really to emphasize even more when the age of 10 if you completely abandon that,
meaning that you're abandoning abandoning and responsibilities towards your child, there may be accountability to Allah subhanaw taala for that abandonment of your responsibilities so then in the future, it is a great risk let's say for example, you know, you don't teach anything to your children with regards to fasting or prayer and then when they reach the age of puberty and you sell you have to pray no and you have to force they look at you and think I'm not doing that I don't have to do that. And then they just not interested you know, you forsaken your responsibilities of years and years and years of trying to teach them in a good way. No doubt you'll be accountable for that.
