Praying In Front Of A Mirror

ro   -
 Question 

What is the ruling on making salat in a room with mirrors?

 Answer 

Praise be to Allaah.

If a person prays with a mirror in front of him, his prayer is valid even if he is facing it and can see himself in it. But he has to lower his gaze and not look at it. He should keep away from it and from everything that may distract him during his prayer.

Al-Lu’lu’ al-Makeen min fataawa Shaykh ibn Jibreen, 103.

Reciting Adhkaar When One Is Junub

ro   -
It is permissible for a person, if he is junub, to make du’aa’ to Allaah and remember Him, including the adhkaar before sleeping and others, because of what is reported in the hadeeth of ‘Aa’ishah (may Allaah be pleased with her), who said,

“The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) used to remember Allaah in all circumstances.”

Sahih Muslim, book of Menstruation ﴾3﴿, hadees- 826.

Some of the commentators on this hadeeth said: this hadeeth is stating a basic principle, which is the remembrance of Allaah in all circumstances, even when one is in a state of minor or major impurity. Dhikr in the form of tasbeeh (saying ‘Subhaan Allaah’), tahleel (saying ‘Laa ilaaha ill-Allaah’), takbeer (saying ‘Allaahu akbar’), tahmeed (saying ‘al-hamdu Lillaah’) and other similar adhkaar is permissible in all situations, according to the consensus of the Muslims.

What is forbidden is dhikr that consists of reciting Qur’aan, a full aayah or more, whether that is read from the Mus-haf or recited by heart, because the prohibition of doing so has been narrated. But it is mustahabb for the person who is junub to wash his private parts and do wudoo’ when he wants to go to sleep, because of what is stated in the hadeeth of ‘Umar (may Allaah be pleased with him), who said,

“O Messenger of Allaah, may one of us sleep when he is junub?” He said, “Yes, if he does wudoo’.” 

Sahih al bukhari, book of bathing ﴾5﴿, hadees- 290.

See al-Sharh al-Mumti’ by Ibn ‘Uthaymeen, 1/288; Tawdeeh Ahkaam by al-Bassaam, 1/250; Fataawa Islamiyyah, 1/232.

7 Persons Who Will Be Under The Shade Of Allah

ro   -
Narrated Abu Huraira:

The Prophet (ﷺ) said, "Allah will give shade, to seven, on the Day when there will be no shade but His. (These seven persons are) a just ruler, a youth who has been brought up in the worship of Allah (i.e. worships Allah sincerely from childhood), a man whose heart is attached to the mosques (i.e. to pray the compulsory prayers in the mosque in congregation), two persons who love each other only for Allah's sake and they meet and part in Allah's cause only, a man who refuses the call of a charming woman of noble birth for illicit intercourse with her and says: I am afraid of Allah, a man who gives charitable gifts so secretly that his left hand does not know what his right hand has given (i.e. nobody knows how much he has given in charity), and a person who remembers Allah in seclusion and his eyes are then flooded with tears."

Sahih al Bukhari, kitab al aazaan ﴾10﴿, hadith- 660.

Wet Dream During The Day In Ramadan

ro   -
  Question  

Does wet dream during the day in Ramadan invalidates fast?

  Answer  

Alhamdulillah..

Having a wet dream during the day in Ramadaan does not invalidate the fast, because this is a matter that is beyond a person’s control, and he cannot prevent it.

۩ Allah says (interpretation of the meaning): 

“Allaah burdens not a person beyond his scope”

Surah baqarah ﴾2﴿, verse- 286.

“If a man experiences a wet dream this does not invalidate his fast, because it was involuntary on his part; it is similar to the case when something enters his throat whilst he is sleeping.” 

See al-Mughni by Ibn Qudaamah, vol. 3, p. 22 

۩ The Standing Committee was asked about a man who had a wet dream during the day in Ramadaan – what is the ruling on that? 

They replied:

“Whoever has a wet dream whilst he is fasting or is in a state of ihraam for Hajj or ‘Umrah, there is no sin on him and he does not have to offer expiation (kafaarah). It does not affect his fast, but he does have to do ghusl to cleanse himself from janaabah (impurity) if maniy (semen) was emitted.”

Fataawa al-Lajnah al-Daa’imah, vol. 10, p. 274.

Dry Impurity Does Not Pass To The One Who Touches It

en   -
  Question  

If a child urinates on the bed then I sit on this bed after it has dried, do my clothes become naajis (impure)?

  Answer  

Praise be to Allah.

Dry impurity does not pass to the one who touches it, so his garments do not become naajis and neither does his body. If a person sits on dried urine, his clothes do not become naajis as a result of that, and he does not have to wash them.

Najaasah (impurity) is only transmitted if it is wet. So if the impurity is wet or the hand of the one who touches it is wet, then it is transmitted as a result.

۩ Shaykh ‘Abd-Allaah ibn ‘Abd al-Rahmaan al-Jibreen (may Allaah preserve him) was asked:

Does dried urine not make clothes impure? i.e., if a child urinates on the ground and the urine remains there until it dries without being washed off, then someone comes and sits on the urine when it has dried, does his garment becomes impure?

He replied:

Touching dry impurity does not affect the body or dry clothes, and it does not matter if one enters a dry washroom with dry feet, because the impurity is only transmitted when it is wet. End quote.

Fataawa al-Mar’ah al-Muslimah (1/194).

And Allaah knows best.

Delaying Ghusl From Janaabah In Ramadaan Until The Sun Has Risen Does Not Invalidate The Fast

ro   ur   -
Praise be to Allaah.

The fast of one who has intercourse with his wife at night and wakes up in the morning in a state of junub is still valid, as is the fast of one who becomes junub in his sleep, whether at night or during the day. There is nothing wrong with delaying ghusl until just before dawn. Rather fasting is invalidated by having intercourse during the day in Ramadaan, from the onset of true dawn until the sun sets. . 

Fataawa al-Lajnah al-Daa’imah, 10/327 

But with regard to your delaying the prayer until the sun had risen, this was wrong of you to do that. What is obligatory is to perform the prayers on time. Feeling too embarrassed to do ghusl is no excuse for delaying the prayer. You have to repent from that and pray for forgiveness. May Allaah help us and you to do all that is good.

The Supplication Of a Fasting Person

   ro   -
Alhamdulillah..

Allah ﷻ doesnot rejects the supplication of a fasting person. A fasting person should supplicate to Allah in two situations:

۩ Whilst he is fasting
۩ When breaking the fast

۞ Whilst he is fasting

Abu Hurairah (may Allaah be pleased with him) narrated:

We said: O Messenger of Allaah, when we see you our hearts are softened and we are people of the Hereafter, but when we leave you we are attracted by this world and by our womenfolk and children. He said: “If you were always as you are when you are with me, the angels would shake hands with you and they would visit you in your houses. If you did not commit sin, Allaah would bring another people who would commit sin so that He could forgive them.” He said: We said: O Messenger of Allaah, tell us about Paradise, what is it built of? He said: “Bricks of gold and bricks of silver; its mortar is musk, its pebbles are pearls and rubies, its soil is saffron. Whoever enters it will be happy and will never be miserable, he will abide therein forever and never die. His clothes will never wear out and his youth will never fade. There are three whose du’aa’ will not be rejected: a just ruler, a fasting person until he breaks the fast, and the prayer of one who has been wronged. It is borne on the clouds and the gates of heaven are opened for it, and the Lord, may He be glorified and exalted, says: ‘By My glory, I will grant you help even if it is after some time.’”

Musnad Ahmad, hadith- 8030. Classed as sahih by Shaykh Shuaib Arnot.

۞ When breaking the fast

Abu Hurairah narrated that the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said:

“There are three whose supplication is not rejected: The fasting person when he breaks his fast, the just leader, and the supplication of the oppressed person; Allah raises it up above the clouds and opens the gates of heaven to it. And the Lord says: ‘By My might, I shall surely aid you, even if it should be after a while.’”

Jamia Tirmizi, kitab ad dua ﴾48﴿, hadith- 3598. Classed as Hasan by Imam Tirmizi aur Darussalaam.
