Live for Another Year | Mufti Abdur-Rahman ibn Yusuf (2 minites 15 seconds) 
Disclaimer at the end of the video :)

It was narrated from Abu Qataadah (may Allaah be pleased with him) that the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) was asked about fasting on the day of ‘Arafah and he said: “It expiates for the past and coming years.” Narrated by Muslim (1162). According to another report: “I ask Allaah that it may expiate for (the sins of) the year that comes before it and the year that comes after it.”

Eid in Makkah does not have to coincide with others

[color=#ff0000]THOSE WHO CLAIM TO FOLLOW SAUDI ARE NOT LISTENING TO SAUDI SCHOLARS, LET ALONE THIER OWN SCHOLARS![/color] They say that we are following Saudi - That is a lie, simply because Saudi Scholars are saying that the Moon sighted for Makkah has nothing to do with those outside of their region. Instead, those outside of Saudi are being told that they MUST follow local sighting. Therefore, the claim of following Saudi is false[url=http://www.masjideumer.org.uk/index.php/resources/artiles/100-eid-ul-adha-is-on-the-10th-of-zil-hijjah-only-on-local-date-eid-ul-adha-is-not-an-eid-ul-hajj] Eid ul Adha is not an Eid ul Hajj!![/url]  Also See Videos below and the [url=http://www.wifaqululama.co.uk/eiduladha/]Wifaqul Ulama link[/url] for more evidence! Unfortunately, there is a common misunderstanding amongst the people that when it is Yowm ul Arafah in Saudi Arabia, the whole world has to celebrate Eid ul Adha on the next day. No evidence for this can be found in our Holy Shariah. The principle prescribed by our Holy Shariah for determining Eid ul Adha is the same as that for determining any other month: one should attempt to sight the moon at the beginning of the month. If the moon is sighted locally or reliable news of sighting is received from outside, then the new month will commence, otherwise thirty days will be declared for the month.

Uncover The Facts

[left][/font][size=150]What to do with ‘Hearsay’?[/left][url=http://www.al-miftah.com/what-to-do-with-hearsay/]Source[/url] The other side of the story A woman once brought a claim against another woman before Qadi Shurayh (rahimahullah). After some time, she began to cry bitterly. Those who were present were convinced that the woman was wronged. Qadi Shurayh replied: “Indeed even the brothers of Yusuf (‘alayhis salam) cried by their father.” i.e, Despite their sobbing, they were still guilty. (Kitabul Adhkiya, pg.63) Moral Therefore, no matter how convincing one side of the story seems, one is still duty bound to hear the other side before drawing a conclusion. The act of passing judgement on mere assumption is quite common and certainly very destructive. The consequences are also far reaching, long lasting and in some cases: regretful. This is the message in the verse: [i]“O you who believe! If a sinful person brings a report to you, then verify its authenticity before you harm a people unknowingly and then become remorseful over what you did”[/b] One is often faced with these kind of situations where one is made to hear one side of the story only. Due to the fatal consequences of this, the Shari’ah cautions us to remain calm, and to verify that piece of information. Haste generally leads to bitterness and remorse. Carefully read the words of the above verse again: …then verify its authenticity before you harm a people unknowingly and then become remorseful over what you did

Ihram Footwear

posted by abu mohammed on 15th August 2017 - 0 comments
APOLOGIES FOR THE FORMAT OF THE TEXT - INSHAALLAH, THIS SHOULD BE SORTED SOON. ---- There has been a confusion about the footwear for Ihram and this confusion can be caused by different opinions from other valid schools of thoughts. Many of us see others wearing sandals covering the entire foot and so on. ---- Therefore, InshaAllah this post may help identify the differing rulings of the slippers / flip-flops that are allowed, specifically in the Hanafi School of thought. ---- Below are two question and answers (edited) with an ilustration of the bones in question. [color=#ff0000]For further clarification, one should consult a scholar or show them the slipper when on the foot as each slipper and foot will be described and fit differently per person.[/color] [color=#000000]-----[/color] [color=#ff0000]Question 1

Waseela and the Misunderstandings

posted by abu mohammed on 14th March 2017 - 3 comments

Waseela and the Misunderstandings

It is very sad and unfortunate that many people have misinterpreted and misunderstood the Shari' method and value of Waseela. The Dangers of getting it wrong will be catastrophic!

My aim here is to keep it very simple and differentiate between that which is Halal and that which is Shirk and I pray to Allah that He gives us the ability to see the difference and protect our Iman.

It's not something new, instead it's very old, older than Islam and when done incorrectly, it becomes a Pagan act.

Islam came to wipe out Paganism, it came to wipe out Polythiesm, i.e. Shirk, associating partners with Allah. Islam came with Tawheed, The first Pillar of Islam!

Dr Yusuf Qaradawi and Dr Zaki Badawi On Halal Food - Not Reliable for Hanafi

posted by abu mohammed on 26th January 2017 - 4 comments

I've been looking into Halal suppliers and Halal food for as long as I can remember. 

One top scholar, Yusuf al-Qaradawi is put on the list of many Halal certifiers so I looked onto his teachings to get a better understanding because some of our own Ulama have quoted him in Q&A's in Halal/Haram Food and you get the idea that if such a name is attached to the label, then it must be fine for us to follow in the Hanafi school. 

Here are some of his views:

We Chose To Be Humans!

We have been taught that Allah created the Angels who can only do as ordered. They cannot sin, they can not cohabit, they can not disobey, they do not have desires and so on. They will not be held responsible for their actions.

Spending on Ashura

posted by abu mohammed on 10th October 2016 - 0 comments

There are several legitimate practices in Islam that have been wrongfully deemed as incorrect. In an era of religious melt-down, we cannot afford such incorrect assertions One such practice is: Spending on one’s family on the day of ‘Ashura (The 10th of Muharram)

 

Rasulullah (sallallahu ’alayhi wasallam) is reported to have said:

“Whoever expands his expenditure on his family on the day of ‘Aashura, Allah Ta’alawill inflate his sustenance for the rest of that year”
