Is it permissible or possible for her to teach? – Shaykh Ghudayyaan (rahimahullaah)

The ruling on studying in the mosques at the hands of one who took knowledge from the books and cassette tapes.

Question

May Allaah bestow good to you and bless you–The questioner of this question asks and she says:  A female Muslim seeks knowledge through translated books and cassette tapes and she has the opportunity to contact the scholars with regards what she finds difficult; is it permissible or possible for her to teach the female Muslims in the Masjid due to the absence of others who can teach the affairs of Manners, Aqeedah and Manhaj?

Answer

What is known is that a person is to take knowledge from the mouth of the scholars and every (type of) knowledge is taken from a person who is well established in that knowledge.  So when one wants to acquire the knowledge of the Tafseer of the Qur’aan, he takes it from a person who is well established in this knowledge, and this is how it is with all the other  sciences-this is the means.

The second means: Indeed a person reads the books; but he should not read the books and depend on them, except if he is qualified to understand them in a correct manner; because if he has deficiencies in his understanding, then indeed he will understand something in a manner other than what it is.  Thereafter, he speaks with what he understands and what he speaks with is a mistake, so people act upon what he explains to them in a wrong manner and he carries their sins.

And with regards to this woman, I advise her that she does not teach based on the fact that she read the books without anyone explaining these books to her. This is the answer to this question. [End]

What affirms the entrance [beginning] and exit [end] of the month of Ramadan?

 

Shaykh Bin Baz was asked:

 

What affirms the entrance [beginning] and exit [end] of the month of Ramadan? And what is the ruling upon the one who sees the new moon by himself for the beginning or ending of the month?

 

The entrance [beginning] and exit [end] of the month is confirmed by 2 trustworthy witnesses or more, and the entrance of the month is confirmed by 1 witness alone because it is confirmed from the prophet that he said;

 
“…and if 2 witnesses testify then fast and break the fast”

 

and it is established from the prophet that he commanded the people to fast upon the testification of ibn Umar and by the testification of the bedouin, and he did not request another witness.

And the wisdom in that and Allah knows best, is caution in the religion in the entering and exiting of the month as the people of knowledge have stated. And whoever sees the new moon alone [himself] in the entering or exiting of the month but his testification is not acted upon then in that case he is to fast with the people and break his fast with the people and he is not to act upon his own witnessing of the new moon based upon the more correct opinion of the scholars due to the statement of the prophet;

“fasting is the day you all fast, and the opening of the fast is the day you all open it and the day of slaughtering is the day you all slaughter”

Can a menstuating woman wash a deceased person?

Is it permissible for a woman to wash and shroud a deceased person whilst she is on her menses?

Answer:
It is permissible for a menstruating woman to wash deceased women and shroud them. And from the men she can only wash her (dead) husband. Menstruation is not considered a prohibition from washing a dead person for burial. And to Allaah belongs all (bestowal of guidance and ability to perform good deeds).

When I go to propose a woman for marriage……

Question:

When I go to propose a young woman for marriage, how should i speak to her in order to know her Aqeedah, fear of Allaah, manners and etiquettes?

Answer:

It is permissible for the proposer to have a look at the one he is proposing but not in seclusion, because the Sunnah has confirmed that from the Messenger of Allaah (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam). And he can ask her and her guardians what he holds important in relation to a beneficial marriage.

I missed Saalutul Fajr because I was awake all night – Shaykh Al Fawzaan

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

A questioner asks:

What is the ruling on the one who sleeps through Salatul Fajr due to staying up late into the night for the purpose of studying?

Shaykh Saalih Al Fawzaan answers:

Mashaa Allah! Mashaa Allah! This is a successful one(!) he neglects the obligation (of Fajr Prayer), and he stays awake through the night.

What is the meaning of seeking of knowledge here?! Whilst he is losing and neglecting the obligatory acts, there is no benefit in this seeking of knowledge.

Salaatul Fajr is a must to be prayed in its correct time with the congregation and there is nothing that takes precedence over it.

What about its narratives and its rulings–Imaam Shanqeetee

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

Allaah (The Most High) said:

وَتَمَّتْ كَلِمَتُ رَبِّكَ صِدْقًا وَعَدْلًا

” And the Word of your Lord has been fulfilled in truth and in justice” [Soorah Al-An-aam: Ayah: 115]

Truthful with regards to its narratives and Just with regards to its rulings.

Shaykh Fawzaan: Is this Supplication sufficient?

 

Shaykh Fawzaan was asked:

 Is this supplication considered comprehensive and sufficient over the other supplications:

‘O Allah indeed I ask you for the good which your prophet Muhammad sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam and your righteous slaves asked you for’

Answer:

This is a tremendous supplication, however it does not remove the need for the remaining supplications; rather the people supplicate with all the supplications they are aware of, increasing (in) good and he doesn’t restrict himself upon any one (supplication).

The prophet sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam did not restrict himself upon one (supplication) rather he used to supplicate with this one sometimes, this one sometimes and this one sometimes (i.e he would vary the supplications he would make).

What if he finds out that he did not pray towards the Qibla?

Question:

What is the ruling, if after the prayer it becomes clear that it was prayed towards other than the direction of the Qiblah; does it make any difference if this (happened) in a Muslim land or a kaafir land or in the wilderness?

 

Answer:

If a Muslim is on a journey or in a land in which it is not easy to find someone to show him the Qiblah, then his prayer is correct even after it becomes clear to him that he did not pray towards the Qibla. But if he was in a Muslim land, his prayer is not correct, because he is able to ask someone to show him the direction of the Qibla, just as he is able to know the direction of the Qibla via the mosques.

Is it a must to have wudoo when making dua? Shaykh Fawzaan

 

Questioner:

Is it a requirement for a person to have wudoo, for the supplication to be answered?

Answer:

It is not a condition for supplication to have wudoo; It IS worship, however there is no condition to have wudoo or to be in a state of purity.
