On Mobile Phones and Du’aa

March 11, 2019 § Leave a comment


“’Ibn Mas’ood, may Allah be pleased with him, saw a man supplicating to Allaah while holding a stone, so he said, ‘When you beseech your Lord for some good then don’t ask Him while you have a stone in your hand.” Az-Zuhd of Ibn Mubaarak, 84.

Shaikh Abdur-Razzaaq al-Badr said, ‘Such things in their hands would weaken their devotion when supplicating. What have mobile phones done to the hearts then and how much have they turned away and hindered people from the Knower of the Unseen?’”

Questioner: Is it allowed for a person to take pictures of himself to send to his family during Eed and such?

Ibn Baaz: There are numerous hadiths where the Prophet ﷺ forbade image-making [tasweer], cursed image-makers and threatened them with various types of punishment, so it is not allowed for a Muslim to take pictures of himself and of other living things except out of necessity for things such as passports, residency documents and so on.

Why Were Bani Israa’eel Ordered to Sacrifice a Cow Instead of Another Animal?

April 29, 2018 § Leave a comment


Al-Maawardi said, “Why did Allaah order Bani Israa’eel to slaughter a cow instead of another animal?

He ordered them to slaughter a cow instead of another animal because it was from the same category [of animal] as the calf they worshipped—so that they would hold to be contemptible what they had formally held in veneration, and so that from their compliance it be known that what they harboured in themselves concerning worshipping it had ceased.”

An-Nukat wal-Uyoon, 1/137.

“Cheerfully, with Formidable Desire and Intense Happiness …”

April 22, 2018 § Leave a comment


“Abdullah Ibn Abbaas said, ‘It is detested that a man stands to pray lazily, he should rather stand for it cheerfully, with formidable desire, intense happiness, for he is confiding privately in Allaah, and Allaah, the Mighty and Majestic, is in front of Him and forgiving him and answering him when he supplicates,’ and he recited this verse, ‘And when they [i.e., the hypocrites] stand to pray they do so lazily.’’” [4:142]

At-Targheeb wat-Tarheeb, no. 1904.
