Making Up Fasts

2.) The same goes for my fasts in Ramadhan. How many qadha fasts would you advice me to hold in the month? Would it be enough to use the days marked as Sunnah fasting days to make up my fasting? Or what about the fasting of Dawud (a.s.) - should I maybe fast every second day? And most of the times my fast broke through masturbation, making them up is sufficient, right? What when I ate after I broke my fast already? Have I then to make Kaffarah?

Sahoor time and eating unknowingly.

asalam o alikum

I have to ask about a very serious problem pertaining to my fasts.I am a hanafi muslim and want an answer according to that.Now this the problem which refers to one being completely and innocently ignorant.It is a problem regarding to Ramadan fasts and the the missing ramadan fasts which are kept afterwards.Islam has a very humanistic approach and I want a correct answer to the problem as I am confused and worn away.I belong to Pakistan.Since my childhood my parents and their grand parents used to say that you can keep on eating until the Adhan of Fajar,till the last azan.Now in almost every ramadan I and my family used to eat And there are about 450 fasts which i kept like this including the qaza fasts.Now when I am an adult I am so depressed as a mufti sahib told me all your fasts are invalid as you should have concluded your eating at the start of adhan.It is now not humaly possible to keep all those fasts.I have got so low spirited that I have stopped fasting my remaining qaza fats as Allah have not accepted my previous fasts.I have given up!!! Then I turned to awebsite www.islam.qa.com which says that"It is obligatory for the fasting person to refrain from things which break the fast from the true dawn until the sun sets. What is means is when dawn breaks, not the adhaan. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):

“and eat and drink until the white thread (light) of dawn appears to you distinct from the black thread (darkness of night)”

I gained hope now another mufti sahib told me that Your fasts are not valid.What should I do now.Is there an alternate or I will have to keep All 450 fasts which I think is a great ordeal and now how can I do it.I mean are you not supposed to be given some compensation or the rule is that strict.

Fasting in 7th month of pregnancy

Assalmou Alaikum,

I am extremly torn by this subject. I have fasted 6 days of Ramadan so far and still have another 2/3rds of the month to go but I am begining to feel extremly dehydrated and fatigued. When I think about not fasting and making the days up later, I think making up all those days alone is going to be hard and try to avoid it by fasting with everyone else. Iftar is currently at 6:30pm and I do wake up for suhur every single day. I am not sure what my islamic obligations are in this case, there are so many things I have heard and read and can't quiet figure out which one to go with.

I would hope a Shekh or Imam can answer me about this.
Thank you

Is Fast Valid?

Dear Mufti Sahib,

1-During Istinjah, if somebody felt that a small portion of his finger went inside the anus while he was wiping out the filth.Does this invalidate the fast?

2-If somebody was kissing his wife and tiny hair on her neck got inside the mouth and then down his throat. Does this invalidate the fast?

Start of Menses during fasting

Everyone knows that fast breaks when menses bleeding starts, but the Pakistani maulvi of our local mosque says that although that fast is not counted and is considered to be repeated, still, we are not allowed eating or drinking until Iftaar of that day, even if bleeding started right after Sohr, after fajr time started.
Please explain this in the light of the Hadith.
Jazak Allah Khair.

Duas of lailatul qadr


last year for laylatul Qadr I found on a website some duas and i recited them as insturcted, however I am now concerned that they may shia practicies and outside the shria. I am concerned that to do good deeds, i may have performed some sin insted. Please take a look at them for me and confirm if they are shia or sunni and if it was ok to recite.

see below

one said that imam mohammad baqi (as) said on the 19th, 21st and 23rd of ramzan to hold open the holy quran in front of your face and recite this dua:

Alla humma inni as 'aluka be kitabek-al munzal-e wa ma feeh-e wa feehismok-al akbaro wa asmaaukal husna wa ma yukhafu wa yurja an taj 'alani min utaqa'eka min-an nar-e wa taqzi-a hawa'eji lid-duniya wal aakhirah.

and then ask for whatever you wish from your Lord(swt). Inshallah that wish will be granted.

Imam Jafer-e-Sadiq(a.s.) recommends that "Put the Holy Quran on your head and say:
Alla humma be haqqe hazal qura'ane wa be haqqe man arsaltahu behi wa be haqqe kulle mu'minin madahtahu feehe wa be haqqeka alaehim fala ahada aarafo be haqqeka minka.

10 times: beka ya Allah-ho (swt),
10 times: be-Mohammad-in (pbuh&hf),
10 times: be-Ali-in (a.s.),
10 times: be-Fatima-ta (a.s.),
10 times: bil-Hasan-e (a.s.),
10 times: bil-Hussain-e (a.s.),
10 times: be-Ali ibn-il-Hussain-e- (.a.s),
10 times: be-Mohammad ibn-e-Ali-in (a.s.),
10 times: be-Jaffer ibn-e-Mohammad-in (a.s.),
10 times: be-Moosa ibn-e-Jaffer-in (a.s.),
10 times: be-Ali ibn-e-Moosa (a.s.),
10 times: be-Mohammad ibn-e-Ali-in (a.s.),
10 times: bil Hassan ibn-e-Ali-in (a.s.),
10 times: bil-Hujjat il-Qayyam-e (a.s.)

After this whatever wish you have, ask your Lord(swt) for it.

ALSO THEY SAID TO RECITE the Ziarat-e-Warisa of Imam Hussain(a.s.). What is ziaraat? please explain

I use these websites below, do you know if they are sunni websites? also please suggest any sunni websites that you know of.

I use the internet to find dua's and such and it is difficult to know what websites are sunni and which are shia, how do you distinguish between them and practices outside sharia.

If i have done sin by performing these would repentance to ALLAH (swt) be enough.?

Women's I'tikaaf - Where to go?

Assalamu Alaykum,

Say a woman does I'tikaaf in her room. Can she go around her room to get things e.g. a book from the shelf or look for things in her cupboard?

Also, is that you CANNOT talk worldly talk or is it makrooh or is it jaiz? If not, then what is said about passing messages by writing it on a piece of paper?

Jazakallah for your time and efforts.
