These are just my thoughts as I said I am no expert in this matter.

The Quran and Hadiths are clear that it is a must to recite Quran in Salah.

The Quran in its original Arabic is the word of Allah, and if we accept that translations of the Quran would not be considered actual Quran, then we wouldnt be fulfillling the obligation of reading Quran in Salah (as demanded by Quran and Hadith) by reading translations.

So what should a person do in the meantime ?

The hadith was already quoted by abumuhammad wherein the Prophet Salalahu alayhi wasalam moreorless says to read what Quran you have memorized in Salah, and if you dont know any Quran then read alhamdulilah, Allahu Akbar and la ilaha ilalah and then bow.

That should address the query about reading Quran in Arabic in salah.

I think I understand.
I would say Allahu Akbar at the beginning.
I would recite that for each required Rakat.
I would do the required supplications for each rakat, and for the time being, that would be sufficient.

(Edit: From your photo's I would guess it's not required to do it for each rakat, but I think I will as a sign of devotion)

Yes. Unless there is a miracle you can work or the Mufti can work.

How else do reverts offer Salah (to start with). By actions and simple words as mentioned.

Now that is cleared up and you've accepted that YOU CAN PRAY, I can stay in first gear and at the same time provide you with some info that you may want to ask a Mufti and see what he says, although, it is not the opinion of the school in it's finality, but still was an opinion.

(And all of the other posts on this subject)

These are the little things that can so easily trip up a new revert.

As I mentioned, THIS IS NOT THE FINAL VIEW OF THE HANAFI SCHOOL, BUT FOR YOUR SATISFACTION, YOU CAN STILL ASK

What is final has been highlighted (what is in RED you may ask)

It is not valid to recite Qur’an in any language other than Arabic, because when the Qur’an is translated, it is no longer Qur’an; rather it is a tafseer (explanation) of Qur’an. Hence the majority of fuqaha’ are of the view that it is obligatory to recite Qur’an in Arabic in prayer, and that recitation is not valid except in Arabic.

This is in contrast to the view of Abu Haneefah (may Allah have mercy on him), who regarded it as valid to recite in a language other than Arabic, but his two companions – Abu Yoosuf and Abu Muhammad – restricted the permissibility of doing so to one who is unable to learn Arabic.

It says in Tabyeen al-Haqaa’iq Sharh Kanz ad-Daqaa’iq (1/110):

With regard to reciting in Farsi, it is permissible according to the view of Abu Haneefah.

Abu Yoosuf and Muhammad said: It is not permissible if the person is able to recite in Arabic, because the word Qur’an refers to the text that was revealed in Arabic, as Allah, may He be exalted, says (interpretation of the meaning): “Indeed, We have made it an Arabic Qur'an” [as-Zukhruf 43:3] and “Indeed, We have sent it down as an Arabic Qur'an” [Yoosuf 12:2]. This refers to the language of the Qur’an. End quote.

Ibn Qudaamah (may Allah have mercy on him) said: It is not acceptable to recite in any language other than Arabic, or to replace any of its phrases with another Arabic phrase, regardless of whether a person can recite in Arabic or not. This is the view of ash-Shaafa‘i, Abu Yoosuf and Muhammad.

Abu Haneefah said: That is permissible. Some of his companions said: It is only permissible for one who does not speak Arabic. He quoted as evidence the verse in which Allah, may He be exalted, says (interpretation of the meaning): “And this Qur'an was revealed to me that I may warn you thereby and whomever it reaches” [al-An‘aam 6:19]. And it is not possible to warn any people except in their own language.

Moreover, Allah, may He be exalted, says (interpretation of the meaning): “as an Arabic Qur'an” [Yoosuf 12:2] and “In a clear Arabic language” [ash-Shu‘araa’ 26:195]. Moreover, the Qur’an is a miracle in both its wording and its meanings, and if it is changed it is no longer Qur’an or like Qur’an; rather it is a tafseer (explanation) of it, and if its explanation were like it, that would mean that they would be able to bring something like it, but Allah challenged them that they would not be able to bring a soorah like it.

This is not taken from a Hanafi website, therefore I cannot verify its accuracy and it is known for this particular website to misquote the Hanafi school - Otherwise, I use it for many other authentic things and share then here. ;)

Okay, on to a different subject, now that I was finally able to grasp all of the explanations of the previous one. :)

I have been wanting to purchase some (scholar approved) socks so that when I perform wudhu, I don't need to wash my feet every time. (I have found 2 suitable brands so far.)

Is it wrong headed thinking to want to avoid washing the feet for every prayer, or is it perfectly normal?

One can perform on "specific" socks and this is normally done when travelling or at work but can be done at other times too.

See this 35 page PDF www.central-mosque.com/fiqh/coursetahaara.pdf and look into page 33 on-wards.

You can get further details from Mufti Amjad via Telegram if and when you speak to him. There are a few brands that they have tested. Muadh may also be able to provide further details, especially for the States and for the socks :)


Make sure you do it correctly though (read the description in the video)

On males covering the head outside of the home (other than salah) is it a requirement, preferred or other?

From what I've read, it's preferred, but I'm looking for confirmation.

Question
A friend said that someone told him that to wear a topi for salat is bidah if you do not wear it in daily regularly. Please explain. Jazakllah Khairan

Answer

It is not Waajib to wear a Topi. It is Sunnah.

A Muslim male should wear the Topi at all times. If he unfortunately does
not do so, then he should at least respect the Salaat and put on a Topi for
Salaat. Your friend’s claim is incorrect. (Refer below)

and Allah Ta’ala Knows Best

Moulana Imraan Vawda
FATWA DEPT.

CHECKED AND APPROVED CORRECT: Mufti Ebrahim Desai

Abu Kabsha (Radhiallaahu Ánhu) narrates that the hats of the companions of
Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) used to be round and spacious.
(Mirqaat vol.8 pg.246)

It is narrated by Tabrani on the authority of Ibn Umar (Radhiallaahu Ánhuma)
that Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) used to wear a white hat.
(Ibid)

Hassan Basri (Rahmatullah Alayhi) states that the people (Sahaaba –
Radhiallaahu Anhum) used to make Sajda (prostrate) upon their turbans and
hats. (Bukhari vol.1 pg.56; Rashidiyya)

Mullah Ali Qari (Rahmatulah Alayhi) states that the wearing of the hat has
become one of the salient symbols of Islam. (Mirqaat vol.8 pg.246) It is the
only outward and unique salient feature that distinguishes a Muslim from a
non-Muslim. No other community group or people wear the Muslim type hat

I have been practicing the changing of positions during salah.
My movements are not fluid at all. I struggle going from standing to prostration and getting up from sitting or prostration. (Often falling forward due to weakness, bad joints etc.)

I don't know if this would be acceptable in a mosque or if it would be too distracting.
I'm wondering if I should sit in a chair because of it.

At home (where I'll be most of the time), I won't be distracting anyone, so I would continue to perform the prostrations and sitting (as long as I'm able) since there's no one to distract.

Sitting on a chair is something fairly recent. Chairs were available in the time of The Prophet (saw) but instead of making use of chairs, they would sit on the floor and pray. There are methods of doing so.

At the same time, it's not distracting at all to take your time getting up or down. Mosques nowadays, tend to make use of chairs, but in my honest opinion, they are more distracting because they are not being used correctly either.

When standing in line (saff) everyone one should have their chests lined up (in other words, the heel of the foot should all be in line) but when they use chairs, they line them up incorrectly because they stand a few feet ahead.

There are rules for sitting and praying so be careful of them. See here for some good advice and knowledge www.muftisays.com/forums/12-virtues/7751-how-to-pray-sala...

I'll try and update the post with a PDF from a question I asked and it's response.

Jzk. for your reply.
I suppose I'll cross that bridge when I come to it.
I'll attempt to do it properly and then if I'm requested by the Imam to sit, I'll either sit in a chair or on the floor (whichever he wants) throughout.

Praying on a chair is fine if it's due to some need such as joint problems. But best to check with a mufti about the best way for you.
