Is it Permissible for a Resident to Combine Maghrib and Isha, after He has Returned from a Journey? Shaykh Uthaymeen

Is it permissible to delay praying maghrib until isha due to him being tired, for an individual who returned from travelling directly after Maghrib prayer i.e. the time of Maghrib has not exited (but the prayer has been established in the masaajid in congregation)?

Shaykh ‘Uthaymeen:

Yes, that is permissible, because not combining in this situation would cause difficulty for him. For indeed ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Abbas (May Allah be pleased with them both) said,

‘The Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wa salam) combined between Dhuhr and ‘Asr , and Maghrib and ‘Isha whilst he was in Madeenah, and there was no fear and no rain. They said to him (‘Abdullah ibn ‘Abbas), why is that? He said, He did not want hardship for his ummah’

Shaykh ‘Uthaymeen: meaning that he did not want the ummah to be afflicted with difficulties by not combining (when there is a need).

Contemplation and Understanding of The Qurān – Shaykh b. Bāz

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Shaykh b. Bāz (rahimahullāh) said,

In general, memorisation is from knowledge and fahm is greater and the head and foundation of knowledge is the Qurān.

Therefore whoever desires knowledge then let him contemplate on the Qurān and give importance to the Qurān, in terms of memorisation, contemplation, revision and action upon it.

And the knowledge of the companions, most of it was from the Qurān, some of them did not memorise except a few ahādīth; however Allāh benefited them by their knowledge and their concern with the Book of Allāh (Azza wa Jal).

[34d] Excerpts from Shaikh Rabee’s Book Titled ‘Marhaban Yaa Taalibal Ilm’ -[Jaabir Travelled for Two Months to Hear One Hadeeth, But You Make Demands On Those Explaining The Books of Knowledge for You]!

In The Name of Allaah, The Mist Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy

In which era do we find the scholars hastening to the houses of the people? Rather, the students of knowledge travel to the scholars and the sahaabah [May Allaah be pleased with them] were the first [to do so]. Jaabir Bin Abdillaah [radiyallaahu anhu] heard that a man amongst the companions of the Messenger [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam] in Shaam had a Hadeeth, so he bought a camel and rode on it to shaam. It took him a month to get there and a month to return, for the sake of one hadeeth.

[However] a man [i.e. a scholar or one who has been given recommendation by the scholars to teach] explains Saheeh Al-Bukhaari, Saheeh Muslim, Sunan Abu Daawud, Sunan At-Tirmidhee, Sunan An-Nasaa’ee or a book of Fiqh or something from it [i.e. very near to you either in your city or a masjid close by], but you say, “No, he must accompany me and he must come with me!” Who gave you this authority in the Sight of Allaah [i.e. that you make such a demand]? O My brothers! It is obligated on us to recognise the status of knowledge.

A Great Scholar, Noble Companion, Abu Mundhir Ubayy ibn Kab (radia Allaahu anhu) Left Worship to Benefit the People


عن أبي العالية قال : كان أبي صاحب عبادة ، فلما احتاج الناس إليه ، ترك العبادة وجلس للقوم 

On Authority of Abī Ā’liyah

Ubayy ibn K’ab used to be a person of  worship, and when the people were in need of him (due to his knowledge and high position amongst the companions) he would leave worship and sit with the people. (to answer their questions).

 [Siyar ‘Alām An-Nubalā Volume 3, page 399].

    • The noble Companion of the Messenger of Allah – from the Ansār and those who partook in the Battle of Badr.
    • He was from the few who had memorised the whole Qur’ān in the lifetime of the Prophet – sallallāhu alayhi wa sallam -whom he ordered the people to take the Qur’ān from.
    • The Messenger of Allah said to him, “O Abā Mundhir (Ubay)! Do you know which verse from the Book of Allah – (you have memorised) with you – is the greatest?” He (Ubay) said, “Allah and His Messenger know best”. The Prophet (repeated and) said, “O Aba Mundhir (Ubay)! Do you know which verse from the Book of Allah – (you have memorised) with you – is the greatest?”. He (Ubay) said, “Allāhu laa ilāha illa huwal-Hayyul-Qayyoom … (āyatul-Kursi).He (Ubay) said, “He (The Prophet) then struck me on my chest and said “By Allah, may you be blessed in your knowledge O Aba Mundhir.” [Muslim, hadith no.810
    • On another occasion, the Prophet said to Ubay ibn K’ab, “Indeed Allah has commanded me to read the Qur’aan to you. He (Ubay) said, “Did He mention me by name?” He (the Prophet) said, “yes”. He (Ubay) said, “I was mentioned by the Lord of the Worlds?!” He said, “yes”. So Ubay began to shed tears. [Al-Bukhaari, hadith no.4961 and Muslim, hadith no. 799].

Ali’s [radiyallaahu-anhu] Brief Description of The Ignorance and Tyranny of The Predecessors of The Contemporary Khaarijites -[The Murderous Devils of ISIS and Their Followers]

Ali [radiyallaahu-anhu] said about the Khawaarij:

They are neither Qurraa [i.e. reciters of the Qur’aan who follow it as it should be followed] nor are they a people of astute understanding in the religion, nor are they scholars of Tafseer. By Allaah! If they were to be placed in charge over your affairs, they would [perpetrate] the deeds of Chosroes and Heracles amongst you.

[Taareekh At-Tabari 3/1117]
