Using the right hand in Istinjaa [Fatwa by Shaikh Abdullaah Bin Muhammad Bin Humaid (rahimahullaah)]

Questioner:

I am left handed; I have used my left hand since childhood and I grew up upon that.  At present when I perform ablution, I use it (i.e. my left hand) to pour the water and the right hand to wash (the limbs); so I don’t know whether my ablution is correct or not.  Likewise, I use my left hand when using the siwaak and when writing; but I use my right hand when eating.  However, besides the ablution (i.e. during which I use my left hand to pour the water), I am in doubt about using it (when doing other things).

Answer:

There is no harm in this (i.e. to use your left hand) besides the istinjaa (i.e. when using water to clean your private parts after using the toilet).  There is no harm if you were to use your right hand to wipe over your head, and to wash your face, forearms and feet whilst carrying the water with your left hand.  However, in Istinjaa, it is the left hand that should touch the private parts and the right hand is used to pour the water for cleaning oneself; for indeed the Prophet (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) said: ”Do not breathe in the drinking utensil;” meaning: when drinking –”And he (i.e. the person) should not (touch or clean his private parts) with his right hand whilst in the khalaa (i.e. in the place of urination or defecation).”[1]

So istinjaa is performed with the left hand and it is what is used to touch (the private parts) and the right hand is used to pour the water.  As for the rest of the affairs (i.e. writing etc), there is no harm (in using the left hand) In-Shaa-Allaah.

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.
