Q&A Adam and Shaitan


Adam and Shaitan

Question 1:
Asalaamualaikum, can jinns be living with us in our own houses, and what brings them?
Answer 1: Jinns live in houses but any home Surah Baqarah is recited the Shaitan doesn’t enter that house. Jinns like to be in abandoned places. If you are answering the call of nature then don’t face the qibla. However, if you are in an enclosed area then you can face the qibla. This is only for open area.

Abu Sa’eed Khudri (RA) reported that Allah’s Messenger (SAW) said, “In your homes are house-snakes. Warn them three times but if they are seen after that then kill them.” [Tirmidhi 1489, Muslim 223

Abu Huraira reported Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: Do not make your houses as graveyards. Satan runs away from the house in which Surah Baqara is recited. Muslim Book 004, Hadith Number 1707

Salman reported that it was said to him: Your Apostle (may peace be upon him) teaches you about everything, even about excrement. He replied: Yes, he has forbidden us to face the Qibla at the time of excretion or urination, or cleansing with right hand or with less than three pebbles, or with dung or bone.
[Sahih Muslim, Book 2, Hadith #504]

Narrated By Abu Aiyub Al-Ansari: Allah's Apostle said, "If anyone of you goes to an open space for answering the call of nature he should neither face nor turn his back towards the Qibla; he should either face the east or the west." [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 1, Book 4, Hadith #146]

Qatadah related from 'Abdullah ibn Sarjas who said, "The Messenger of Allah forbade urination into a hole." Said Qatadah, "What is disliked about urinating into a hole?" Said he, "It is the residence of the jinn." [related by Ahmad, an-Nasa'i, Abu Dawud, al-Hakim and al-Baihaqi. Ibn Khuzaimah and Ibn as-Sakin classified it as sahih]

Question 2: Aswrwb Shaikh, I know a revert sister who has married while she was pregnant. Now she has another child. As far as I know, nikah is invalid if the woman is pregnant. Does that mean both her children are bastards and she needs to repeat her nikah with a new dowry and all this time she was committing zina?
Answer 2: There is no evidence saying the nikkah is batil and she does not have to repeat the nikkah. Those who say the nikkah is batil have no evidence and we cannot say that the child is a bastard child, we should try and hide the sins of our sisters and brothers. We shouldn’t be a khawaarij. Sheikh used to marry women who were impregnated off to men who were responsible for the pregnancy when he was in UK. The people use to tell sheikh fear Allah. But he always use to say that he need to help the people who want to repent to Allah.

Question 3:
Assalamu alaikum sheikh, I prayed Isha salah then I prayed witr. I later decided to pray tashahhud do I need to pray my witr again? Also does a person who dies as a shahid have to stand before Allah being questioned or is the person granted Jannah without questioning? JZK
Answer 3: The shaheed will not be punished in his grave. The shaheed all his sins will be forgiven if the jihaad was fardh al ayn. But if the jihaad was fardh ul kifayah then they will be questioned about their debt.
The witr should be the last salah of the night. You should perform your witr again if you performed tahajjud.

Narrated Abdullah bin Umar The Prophet (pbuh) said, “Make Witr as your last prayer at night.” [Sahih Al-Bukhari Vol.2 Hadith No.998]

Question 4: Sheikh what do we do if we do too many rakats in the salat and realize it an hour or more lately. Should we redo the salat or is as-sahw still sufficient? And what should we do if we did not enough rakats in the salat and remember it later is it sufficient to make up the missed rakat or rakats and do as sahw after having realized the error an hour or more later?
Answer 4: When the prophet (saw) was done with salah with the sahaba and missed a raakah
He did a sajadah sahw. He did a sajaadah sahw, and did the extra rakkah he missed out.

Question 5: Is it halaal for a woman to wear skirts instead of abayah, and is it fardh on a woman to wear abayah or can she wear other forms of modest clothing?
Answer 5: Whenever a lady leaves the house she should wear hijaab and jilbaab. The Pakistanis wear selwar kameez. A lady can wear them if they are long, but it has to be a dull colour, and loose fitted. The Islamic dress sheikh will cover that soon insha’Allah. A jilbaab has to be loose fitting not TIGHT because some people wear tight fitted jilbaabs.
