Do i need to pray two rakaat if I left the masjid and returned a while after? Shaykh Fawzaan

Question:

If I exited from the masjid for a period of ten minutes then I returned is the greeting of the masjid (2 rakaat) binding upon me?

Answer:

If you exited with the intention to return and you returned soon then the greeting of the masjid is not upon you, because you take the ruling of being sat in the Masjid. As for if the time was long, then when you return you perform the greeting of the masjid because the separation was long and the first sitting has finished and this is a second sitting.

Muslim Greeting when Ramadhan Approaches – Shaykh Bin Baaz

Shaykh Bin Baz rahimahullah was asked:

Question:

 Are there any specific legislated affairs with which the Muslim greets Ramadhaan?

Answer:

The Month of Ramadhaan is the best of the months of the year, because Allah-Subhaanahu- has specified it by making fasting obligatory in it, and by making it the fourth pillar from the pillars of Islam. He also legislated for the Muslim that he prays the nights of Ramadhaan, as the Prophet (sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam) said:

“Islaam is built upon five, The testification that none has the right to be worshipped in truth except Allah and that Muhammad is his Messenger, the establishment of the prayer, the giving of obligatory charity, fasting the month of Ramadhaan and performance of Hajj.” 1

And he (Sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam) said

“Whoever (establishes the month of Ramadaan –by fasting and performing all types of righteous action) with the belief (that it is legislated by Allaah), and hoping for reward, He (Allah) will forgive him for his previous sins.”2

I do not know of any prescribed thing for the receiving of Ramadhaan except that the Muslim receives it with happiness, being delighted and rejoicing, (and) that he thanks Allah for the coming of Ramadhaan and that He has given him success by making him from those who are alive and those who compete in righteous actions.

For indeed the coming of Ramadhaan is a tremendous blessing from Allah, (and) because of this the Messenger (sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam) use to give his companions the glad tidings of the upcoming Ramadhaan and clarified to them its virtues, and that which Allah has prepared a great reward for those who fast and stand (in voluntary prayer at night). Allah has legislated for the Muslim the greeting of this month with sincere repentance and that in preparation for his fasting and standing, he should have a sound intention and a genuine firm resolve (for fasting, praying and performing all types of righteous actions).

Praying Behind an Imaam Who has defects (in his recitation)

Question:

There is a masjid whose Imaam is a Haafidh of the Qur’aan and he has good understanding in the issues of the prayer, except that there are some defects on his tongue (i.e. in his pronunciation); but he is from a non-Arab country. Is his Imaamship valid alongside the fact that there are those with a clearer tongue than him?

Answer: 

I say: (If) he is not able to pronounce the (letters and sentences) of the clear Arabic language, then he may (read) some of the verses with other than its intended (meaning), such as substituting(ر) with a ( غ ) or a (ح) with a (ه )- saying: (الرهمن), which is similar to what some non-Arabs do; saying: الهمد لله and substituting the (ح) with a (ه); [(saying) الهمد لله رب العالمين instead of الحمد لله رب العالمين] or substituting (ر ) with a ( غ) and what is similar to it; then it is not permissible to pray behind such a person, rather he should learn because the meaning of (what he recites) is the opposite.

And if his defects do not change the meaning, then there is no harm in praying behind him. (If) his defects changes the meaning, it is obligated on him to rectify his tongue (i.e. his pronunciation) by learning the Arabic language. It is obligatory to get other people to be Imaam if he changes the meaning (in his recitation).

Reaching Both The Daily Benefits of The Religion and Worldly Affairs

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

The sensible person is in a position to have the Baaqiyaat As-Saalihaat as provision (i.e. the good righteous deeds that last and are better in the sight of Allah for reward and better in respect of hope in the Hereafter) together with his share in the worldly life with ease- by seeking aid in going out in the morning and midday and something of the night time. This is the foundation upon which he places his worldly affairs and the means to (accomplishing them). And even when such (affairs) come to him late at night, he would pray and seek aid from his Lord and asks for that which brings about goodness in (both) his religious and Worldly affairs, regardless when that affair is easy (to accomplish).

He begins his day with good – recitation of the Qur’aan and acts of worship- to which one devotes himself in the morning; performs the five daily (obligatory) prayers in their earliest times and that which Allah makes easy for him to perform of good actions, such as (optional) prayer, recitation of the Qur’aan, remembrance of Allah, seeking knowledge and other than that. He engages his tongue in the Remembrance of Allah and in seeking forgiveness.

He pursues the means by way of which one seeks his livelihood such as trade, production of goods, farming and what is similar to them, whilst seeking the aid of his Lord in that. He suffices himself with the permissible means and turns away from that which Allaah has made unlawful. The intent behind this is to fulfil the individual obligations; to be (upon) self-sufficiency and having little or no need of the creation. If he does this or something closer to it, the result will be goodness and he will gain abundant reward (for the afterlife). Also he neither forgets his share in the worldly life nor does anything of its pleasures escape him; and it may be that Allah will bless him with contentment, which is true richness by way of which a good life is attained.
