Taraweeh in Congregation and Congregational Prayer in Last Third of the Night – Shaykh Baaz

If a Muslim prays with the congregation, in Ramadhan, the Taraweeh prayer and there is also a prayer in the last third of the night, then which of the two is better and takes precedence? To perform the witr with the congregation and make the witr even, or should he leave off the witr with the congregation and pray the witr in last third?

It is better to complete the prayer with the Imam as Allah legislated, because the prophet (sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam) said, Verily, when a man prays with the Imam until the imams (finishes) and departs, Allah writes (for him the reward) of (praying) the rest of the night.

And that is because when he (may Allah raise his rank and status) led the companions [in taraweeh], up to a third of the night some nights, and in some they prayed up to half of the night, they asked,

“O Messenger of Allah, (what) if we pray (more) optional prayers for the rest of our night; he replied Verily, when a man prays with the Imam until the imams (finishes) and departs, Allah writes (for him the reward) of (praying) the rest of the night.

This is what is better, that he continues with the Imam including the witr and if he prays in the last third the first witr suffices him, there is no need to perform a second witr, All praises belong to Allah, he would perform witr with the Imam and pray what he is able in the last third even number, (ie 2 by 2) without a witr, yes. As has preceded in the first question.

Questioner: If he prayed witr with the imam and then made it even and prayed witr in the last third?

Shaykh:
If he makes it even, then no problem… When the Imam gives the salaam, then he stands and adds a rakah to make it even and performs the witr in the last third, no problem.

However this could possibly become difficult for the souls and it might be feared that the person who does this could be considered to show off.

In conclusion, if he suffices with the witr (with the Imam), All praises belong to Allah it suffices. And if he makes it even then no issue, if he makes it even and performs witr in the last third, then no problem. And if he suffices with the witr and then prays in the last third that which is easy for him, 2 units of prayer, or 4 or 6 or 8 etc then no problem, there is no need for (another) witr the first witr suffices him. Yes.

As a general reminder for those attending the masjid please park your cars 🚗 properly and safely within the car park and on the surrounding streets- taking care not to block driveways.

Each year we appoint those whom we know and trust to distribute some of this, and from it included Zakat al Fitr.. often times this is left a few until the last moment.

Giving Zakah (obligatory charity) to a Sick Person for Treatment – Shaykh Al-Uthaymīn

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Shaykh Uthaymīn was asked about the permissibility of giving zakah to a person for  medical treatment.

He answered (rahimahullāh):

A person’s need for treatment, is an urgent need. Therefore if we find an ill person who needs treatment and he does not have money to pay for the treatment; then there is no problem in giving him zakah (obligatory charity). Because the intent of it (zakah) is the removal of need.

Zakāt For The One Who Receives A Monthly Salary – Shaykh Al-Fawzān

Question: How is zakāt to be paid on the wealth of an employee whose salary increases every month? With some of his wealth, a full year has passed and so zakāt is obligatory on it, however with some of it, a year has not yet completed, so what does he do?

 

Answer: If you were to specify a month from the year in which you extract your zakāt from the wealth you have accumulated, such as the month of Ramadān, this is good. You pay the zakāt on all the wealth that which is with you – the wealth on which a year has passed, you would have paid the zakāt in its time, as for that which a year has not passed, you would have paid it earlier, and the early payment of zakāt is permissible for a legislative reason. This is the only way available for the people (specifically employees receiving a monthly salary). He is to choose a month from the year and makes it the time for extracting zakāt until the coming year in which he does the same.

A Command to Perform the Salaah and Spend in Charity, Before The Day In Which There Will Neither Be Mutual Bargaining Nor Befriending!

Allaah (The Most High) said:

قُلْ لِعِبَادِيَ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا يُقِيمُوا الصَّلَاةَ وَيُنْفِقُوا مِمَّا رَزَقْنَاهُمْ سِرًّا وَعَلَانِيَةً مِنْ قَبْلِ أَنْ يَأْتِيَ يَوْمٌ لَا بَيْعٌ فِيهِ وَلَا خِلَالٌ

Say (O Muhammad) to ‘Ibadi (My slaves) who have believed, that they should perform As-Salat (Iqamat-as-Salat), and spend in charity out of the sustenance We have given them, secretly and openly, before the coming of a Day on which there will be neither mutual bargaining nor befriending.” [Soorah Ibraaheem: Ayah 31]

That is: Say to My believing slaves whilst commanding them with that which contains the greatest (affair of) well-being for them, that they should seize this opportunity lest they are no longer able to get hold of it; [يُقِيمُوا الصَّلَاةَ  – That they should perform the prayer] outwardly (i.e. with all its pillars, obligations etc… as taught by the Messenger) and inwardly (i.e. with awareness, concentration, humility, tranquillity in their hearts etc.)

[وَيُنْفِقُوا مِمَّا رَزَقْنَاهُمْ – And spend in charity out of the sustenance We have given them]; That is: From the blessings I have bestowed upon them, whether it is a lot or little. [سِرًّا وَعَلَانِيَةً – Secretly and openly]- this includes obligatory spending such as Zakah, (also) the spending that is obligatory upon a person and recommended spending, such as optional charity and what is similar to it.

[مِنْ قَبْلِ أَنْ يَأْتِيَ يَوْمٌ لَا بَيْعٌ فِيهِ وَلَا خِلَالٌ – Before the coming of a Day on which there will be neither mutual bargaining nor befriending]; That is: (A Day on which) nothing will benefit a person nor will there be any means to reaching what has elapsed – neither through buying nor selling, and neither through an intimate friend nor a friend because every person will be sufficed with his own affairs.

Therefore, a slave (i.e. servant of Allaah) should send forth (good deeds) for himself and look to what he has sent forth for the morrow. He should examine his deeds and take himself to account before the great Reckoning (i.e. Day of Judgement).
