Various 10 questions

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad(saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

 

Q-1) Do you have to burrie your childs navel after it has fallen of because its also a part of the body?

If one wishes to bury the navel there is no harm; but it is not necessary or obligatory to do so in Islam.


 

Q-2) I'm a married woman with 2 children me and my husband are living separately I get money from social security do I have to pay zakaat or is it my husbands responsibility?

The money you receive from the Social Security is your own. If after paying expenses, you are still able to save the nisaab for eligibility of paying zakaah, which is about 85 grams of gold (or value around $1,000.00); and this amount is in possession with you for a year, you will have to pay 2.5% of the saved value as zakaah dues.

 

Q-3) Is it possible to save up money from my income support to go to Mecca?

The money you get from the Social Security is your own. There is no harm if you wish to save from this source to go to Makkah.

 

Q-4) Is it not correct for women to kiss eachother outside when they meet in the streets?

There is no harm if women who meet kiss each other as a way of greeting.

 

Q-5) My husband doesnt pray I decided not to have intercourse with him untill he changes his mentality starts praying and live his life concerning the rules of kittab and sunnah,do I have the right to refuse intercourse with him and can you send me a text or story of a hadith where the same matter is discussed as proof for my husband?

Jabir reports that the Prophet (saws), "Between a person and disbelief is discarding prayer."

Related by Ahmad, Muslim, Abu Dawud, at-Tirmidhi and Ibn Majah.

 

If a believing woman is married to a man who does not pray, she must humbly, politely, and with extreme wisdom and patience remind him to fear Allah and give his due rights to his Lord and Creator. If, after everything, the husband still refuses to pray, there is absolutely no sin upon the woman even if she initiates divorce proceedings against such a person.

 

Q-6)I want to stimulate my husband to start praying and love Islam probably I'm not doing it correctly what is the best way?

Allah says in the Holy Quran: Chapter 16, Surah An-Nahl Ayat 125: Invite to the way of your Lord with wisdom and excellent admonition and argue with people in the best manner. Your Lord knows best who has gone astray from His Way and who is Rightly guided.

 

With humility, love, politeness, and extreme wisdom and patience the wife should invite her husband who does not pray or practice Islam to the Straight Path. Or she may give him a translation of the Holy Quran to read and understand, or some good Islamic Books, or hear some good Islamic cassettes, etc. One of the best things she can do is to encourage her husband to be in the company of good, God-fearing muslims.

 

Q-7)If someone doesnt have a husband or father or uncle or mahram how is she supposed to go to mecca  or is a group her mahram?

Most of the scholars of Islam are of the opinion that if a woman does not have a male-mehram to accompany her for her pilgrimage to Makkah, even though she is able-bodied and can afford the travel expenses; Hajj is not obligatory upon such a woman.

 

Only Imam Shafei is of the opinion that it is permissible for a woman who cannot find a male-mehram to accompany her for her pilgrimage to Makkah, to travel with a group of good, righteous, God-fearing woman for her obligatory Hajj.

 

Q-8) Is it true you cant go to mecca if your parents didnt go there first?

There is absolutely no condition or restriction in Islam, that if the parents have not done their obligatory pilgrimage of Hajj, their children cannot do theirs!

 

The parents are responsible and accountable for their deeds; and the children for theirs. Making the Hajj pilgrimage is obligatory on every eligible believing man and woman, regardless of whether their parents have done theirs or not.

 

Q-9)Is imsak islamically correct?

The term imsaak in Arabic means the time to stop eating and drinking, signaling the time of beginning the fast at pre-dawn.

 

Please explain what exactly you mean to ask by imsaak!

 

Q-10)Is it true that when you are praying you have to recite soeras that are following up in the qoran?

It is recommended and the general Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah (saws) to pray the Surahs or Aayahs of the Quran in descending order. It is not necessary, although it is absolutely permissible, to pray consecutive Surahs or Aayahs of the Quran in prayer in ascending order.

 

For eg., one may pray Aayahs 1-3 of Surah Baqarah in the first rakah, and the Ayaahs 20-22 of Surah Ale-Imran in the second; or Aayahs 10-15 of Surah Baqarah in the first and the 114th Surah of the Quran in the second rakah, etc. or one may pray any combination of Aayahs and Surahs, provided they are in ascending order of the Quran.

 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.

 

Your Brother in Islam,

 

 

Burhan
