  1. Afwan akhee al kareem, i did not go through this before. I do have a question though. One that has been on my mind for sometime now. If i miss one of my rawaatab sunnah prayers, for example, the 4 before Dhuhr, maybe due to sleep or even delibrately sometimes, can i make them up after the time for Dhuhr has passed? My question thus encompasses all those Rawaatib sunnah prayers. BaarakAllaahu feek

    • إذا نسي أحدكم صلاة أونام عنها فليصلها إذا ذكرها
      Meaning: “If one of you sleeps through a prayer or forgets it, then he is to pray it when he remembers it.” (Muslim, on the authority of Anas)

      The wording of the hadeeth is general and thus includes non-obligatory prayers. For those who insist on it being specific to obligatory prayers, then by qiyaas (fah-wal-khitaab) – What has even more clear permissibility to be made up would be the non-obligatory prayers, and Allaah knows best.

        • Then he focuses on the upcoming prayers and their related nawaafil, asking Allaah for assistance. No repentance, regret, expiation, or replacement necessary for missed nawaafil, even the highly stressed ones. (Sorry for the delay.) And Allaah knows best.

    Is there a reason to why some comments aren’t replied to,while others are even though they adhere to the comment guidelines?I’m asking genuinely,so that I can abstain from disturbing the admins.BaarakAllaahu feekum

    • wa alaykis-salaamu wa rahmatullah,

      We appreciate your patience and understanding. When we know the answer to your question or can help you somehow, we try to answer. Otherwise, the question remains for anyone who might be able to help you. Thank you for your question, and thank you for understanding.

  3. As salamu alaykum, i have question about the permissibility of cutting the women’s hair. If a woman has damaged hair due to harsh chemicals and needs to cut it (maybe an inch or two from the ends) in order for it to become healthy and grow, is this permissible ?

    • Wa ‘alayk as-salaam. It is not forbidden for women to cut their hair. Our mother, ‘Aa’ishah (may Allaah be pleased with her), cut her hair to a ‘wafrah’ (short style). And Allaah knows best.

      • Jazakallahu khayr, i have another question regarding seeking knowledge….what is your advice for a woman who traveled to seek knowledge in egypt with two small children and a husband who also is seeking knowldege but wont allow her to leave the home to do so due to his personal fears?Meaning she can have a home tutor but cannot go to a markaz.

  4. What is the ruling on contracts that contain Haram that one agrees to?
    Is it Kufr due to the fact that it could be rejecting the fact that any contract that contains Haram is null and void? In addition, the fact that one agrees to be bound by something Haram?

    One would be surprised at the number of things that include Haram contracts,

    • In brief, if the haraam thing is connected to the core of the contract, then the contract is invalid. An example would be the sale of intoxicants. If the haraam thing is a stipulation added to a valid contract, then the stipulation is invalid, while the contract itself remains valid. And Allaah knows best.

        • Knowing them to be haraam and declaring them permissible would be outside of Islaam, while actions based on greed or oppression are sinful. And Allaah knows best.

  5. As salaamu ‘alaykum wa rahmatullah, i have a brief question….is there any circumstance where it is permissible to make du’a against a believer ? If so, what are they ?

  6. Salamu alayqum Moosa,
    I’m from India, as you know here one famous personality in the name of Daawah running organisations,TV channel(peace),website(IRF). many people taking him as model in Dawah field, i mean his way of dressing,standing while addressing, speaking,studying bible, hindu religious books etc etc in methodology.
    even those youth who ascribe to Ahlul-Hadeeth respect and follow him and say “he is Day’ee and doctor. who in india doing this type of Dawah in public? exposing their books ? debating with other religious leaders etc etc.
    when i asked a common person about him, that Is he Mr. is an Aalim? where did he study? who are his Ulamaa? then furiously person start to reply saying that” yes he is kibar aalim, through his daawah the results are huge converting hundreds of kaafir to islam. is he Deviant?
    what should i reply and how to refute ….
    jazaakAllahu qairaa

    • Zakir Naik is not knowledgeable about Islam, he learned from and followed the way of Ahmad Deedat. Zakir is a person of rhetoric and philosophy, and I do not recommend anyone to listen to him. And Allaah knows best.

      • Abu Abbas you didn’t reply completely to my request…
        what should i reply to the people even who ascribe themselves to Ahlul-Hadeeth jamaah?
        who are kibar ulama of Ahlus sunnah in India? or Taalibul Ilm where i can refer back to?

  7. Assalaamu Alaikumm Akhi Moosa,

(e.g.; reciting the khuls, Surah Fatiha, Aayatul Kursi so on and so forth…) and is blowing after the recitation on the affected person is mandatory? if theres any other opinions please do guide me.

    Barakallaahu feek…

    Aba Hanzalah (Sri Lanki)

  11. السلام عليكم و رحمة الله و بركاته
    May Allaah reward all you brothers who participate in the work to keep these sites like this up and running.

    I have read this page in the past alhamdulillaah and I did send a couple a questions but they were never published – comments were published after that.
    I don’t have a problem with the fact they weren’t published but I hope they were not offensive in any way and I apologize if that was so.
    I love you brothers for the sake of Allaah… May Allaah keep me and you firm upon Salafiyyah until death.

  12. Salamalikum
    The questions are being vanished. Which place of your site they be allowed. We have to gain knowledge, need clarifications etc. we are far from you to reach you. Earlier a question on validity of a marriage is not answered even after over a month. So has happened with question on Sihr (for English Translation of Sheikh Muqbil (may Allah have mercy on him) ). Is your site only for reading. Can you recommend any other websites for quicker answers. No answers are disappointing, instills repulsive mood.

    • Wa ‘alayk as-salaamu wa rahmatullaah. I answer questions that are easy for me to answer, those which I can provide authentic information on and explain well. Due to my limited knowledge, the answers I can provide are few. May Allaah reward you for thinking well of your brother and being patient.

      RE: Questions “vanishing” – then no, this does not happen. All questions need approved before they are published. You are the only one who sees your question until it is published. Some questions never get published, so maybe you refreshed your browser or dumped your cache, so the question then appears to have “vanished”.

  13. Salamalaikum
    Thank you , I got it. May Allaah keep you healthy and happy and increase you in knowledge and wisdom. Regarding my questions being vanished, yes I am using C cleaner app which is killing the cookies. My earlier reply is gone, on using it which confirms that bakkah admin is not to blame . So I am replying this again. Next i will use the C Cleaners after unchecking the cookies.
