الحديث الثالث والعشرون
«عن أبي مالك الحارث بن الأشعري رضي الله عنه قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم الطهور شطر الإيمان، والحمد لله تملأ الميزان، وسبحان الله والحمد لله تملآن - أو تملأ - ما بين السماء والأرض، والصلاة نور، والصدقة برهان، والصبر ضياء، والقرآن حجة لك أو عليك، كل الناس يغدو: فبائع نفسه فمعتقها أو موبقها» .
رواه مسلم.

On the authority of Abu Malik al-Harith bin al-Harith al-Asharee (RA) who said: The Messenger of Allah (SAW) said, "Purity is half of iman (faith). ‘al-hamdu lillah (praise be to Allah)’ fills the scales, and ‘subhan-Allah (how far is Allah from every imperfection) and ‘al-hamdulillah (praise be to Allah)’ fill that which is between heaven and earth. And the salah (prayer) is a light, and charity is a proof, and patience is illumination, and the Qur’an is a proof either for you or against you. Every person starts his day as a vendor of his soul, either freeing it or causing its ruin." [Sahih Muslim (1/203) No. 223]

This hadeeth is proof that the Muslims are the most hygienic
-in the hadith it means spiritual purification
-and shirk is impure
-kaffirs cannot enter Makkah or Madina because they are impure

Muslims cannot be impure
-the kaffirs are impure spiritually because of their aqeeda
-they do not make istinja-washing of private parts after urinating and defecation
-when Allah dismisses people of being impure
-it is because of their beliefs and not making istinja
-Muslims are circumcised (men) and it is compulsory

Narrated By Abu Huraira: I heard the Prophet saying. "Five practices are characteristics of the Fitra: circumcision, shaving the pubic hair, cutting the moustaches short, clipping the nails, and depilating the hair of the armpits." [al-Bukhari (6297) and Muslim (496)]

A Muslim has to shave his pubic hair
-and hair under the armpit every 40 days

A Muslim woman should not marry an uncircumcised man
-because when a man is not circumcised he is not clean
-and he is prone to cancer

Had they followed Jesus and get circumcised they won’t be in this state
-but they abandoned what Jesus brought and followed Paul who was a Jew
-his aim and objective was to destroy the teachings of Jesus
-because a Jew always tries to destroy the message of Allah
-this was what Abdullah ibn Saba wanted

…"Purity is half of iman (faith)…

The Rasool (saw) said cleanliness is half of your emaan
-and in order to be clean you have to be circumcised, clip your nails, brush your teeth
-you are not allowed to have bad breath

Abu Hurayra reported that the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said, "If it was not for the fact that I might have been overburdening my community - or the people - I would have ordered them to use the siwak for every prayer." [al-Bukhari (887) and Muslim (252)]

Narrated By Ibn Abbas: The Prophet once passed by two graves, and those two persons (in the graves) were being tortured. He said, "They are being tortured not for a great thing (to avoid). One of them never saved himself from being soiled with his urine, while the other was going about with calumnies (to make enmity between friends). He then took a green leaf of a date-palm tree split it into two pieces and fixed one on each grave. The people said, "O Allah's Apostle! Why have you done so?" He replied, "I hope that their punishment may be lessened till they (the leaf) become dry." [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 2, Book 23, Hadith #443]

The prophet (saw) passed by 2 graves who were being punished
-one was a talebearer and the other used to drop urine on his trousers
-your clothing cannot be soiled with najasa (urine and feces)
-if they are it means you didn’t perform tahara

It is reported from Hudhaifa that news reached him (the Holy Prophet) that a certain man carried tales. Upon this Hudhaifa remarked: I heard Allah's Messenger (SAW) saying: "The tale-bearer shall not enter Paradise." [al-Bukhari (6056) and Muslim (189)]

Because Muslims are the most hygienic on earth
-we are not allowed to keep pet dogs
-the angels don’t enter homes with 5 things:


Ibn Abbas (RA) reported having heard Abu Talhah say that he heard Allah’s Messenger (SAW) say, “The angels do not enter a house in which there is a dog or a picture of an animate.” [Tirmidhi 2813, Bukhari 3225, Muslim 2106 & 3649, Ahmed 16347, Nisai 4288]

The angel of mercy is the one that abstains from these homes
-because the angel of death will still enter your home if it is your time to die

The Islamic religion is so hygienic
-we are not allowed to go to bed with our wives while they are menstruating
-if you do so, you give away 4 1/4 grams of goal in charity

Ibn Abbas (RA) narrated the Prophet (SAW) said concerning one who had intercourse with his wife when she was menstruating: “Let him give a dinar or half a dinar in charity.” [Musnad Ahmad (1/229) No. 2032, Sunan Abu Dawud (2/251) No. 2168, Sunan Tirmidhi (1/244) No. 136, Sunan An-Nasa’i (1/153) No. 289 and Sunan Ibn Majah (1/405) No. 640]

If your wife was menstruating and then stops
-you can’t go to bed with her until she makes ghusl
-this is the madhab of the 3 imams except Abu Hanifa

The place you pray has to be clean for your salah to be accepted
-the clothing you are praying in have to be clean too
-the person praying has to be in a state of wudu
-praying without wudu makes your salah baatil

It is permissible to divorce your partner if they have bad breath
-or do not pay attention to personal hygiene


Humran (the freed slave of Uthman), who said that Uthman ibn Affan (RA) called for water to do wudo’. He washed his hands three times, then he rinsed his mouth and nose, then he washed his face three times, then he washed his right arm up to the elbow three times, then he washed his left arm likewise. Then he wiped his head, then he washed his right foot up to the ankle three times, then he washed his left foot likewise. Then he said, “I saw the Messenger of Allah (SAW) doing wudo’ as I have done it, then the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said, ‘Whoever does wudo’ as I have done it, then prays two rak’ahs in which he focuses completely on his prayer, his previous sins will be forgiven.’” [Sahih Muslim (1/204) No. 226, Musnad Ahmad (1/59) No. 418, Sunan Abu Dawud (1/26) No. 106, Sunan al-Nasa'i (1/64) No. 84, Sunan Darimi (1/544) No. 720]

-i intend to purify myself by way of wudu in your heart not aloud


Abu Hurairah narrated the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: "...the ablution of a person who does not mention the name of Allah (in the beginning) is not valid. [Sunan Abu Dawud (1/73) No. 101, Sunan Ibn Majah (1/257) No. 399, Musnad Ahmad (3/41) No. 11388, Sunan Tirmidhi (1/37) No. 25]

Abu Hurayrah (RA) narrated the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: “Every important word or matter that does not begin with remembrance of Allah is maimed.” [Musnad Ahmad (2/359) No. 8797, Sunan Ibn Majah (3/89) No. 1894, Sahih Ibn Hibban (1/173) No. 1, al-Sunan al-Kubra al-Nasa'i (9/185) No. 10258]

-Bismillah in wudu is Sunnah mu’akadah



-use right hand to put water in your nose and left hand to blow it out

-a man should wash the hair on his face
-the one at the side of the cheek
-he has to wash the surface of the beard
-your chin is a part of your face too

-women who wear nail polish have to take it off
-for their wudu to be valid
-washing up to the elbow means including the elbow
-if you do not wash your elbow, your wudu is invalid

-beginning from the front to the back and then bringing the hand back to the front
-when you wipe your head, you need to wipe your ears

It was narrated that Abu Hurairah said: 'The Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: "The ears are part of the head."' [Sunan Ibn Majah (1/283) No. 445 and Sunan al-Daraqutni (1/175) No. 339]

-use your thumbs to wipe the back of the ears
-and stick the fingers to wipe the lobes and inside
-wiping the back of the neck is the hallmark of Hanafi wudu
-the hadeeth for this is weak therefore doing so is bid'ah

-the Sunnah is to scrub between your toes
-use left hand to wash both feet


-Tirmidhi added a dua to be recited

'Umar ibn al-Khattab reported that the Prophet (SAW) said, "No one among you does wudu' and does wudu' thoroughly -– or adequately - and then testifies, أَشْهَدُ أَنْ لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللهُ وَأَنَّ مُحَمَّدًا عَبْدُ اللهِ وَرَسُولُهُ 'Ash-hadu an la ilaha illallahu Wahdahu la sharika Lahu, wa ash-hadu anna Muhammadan 'abduhu wa Rasuluhu' (I testify that there is no true god except Allah Alone, Who has no partners and that Muhammad is His slave and Messenger) without the eight doors of the Garden being opened to him so that he can enter by whichever of them he wishes." [Sahih Muslim (1/209) No. 234]

A report narrated by al-Tirmidhi adds: اللَّهُمَّ اجْعَلْنِي مِنَ التَّوَّابِينَ، وَاجْعَلْنِي مِنَ المُتَطَهِّرِينَ “Allahumma ij’alni min al-tawwaabeena wa’j’alni min al-mutatahhireen (O Allah, make me one of those who repent and make me one of those who purify themselves).” [Sunan Tirmidhi (1/77) No. 55]





-it has the following components:

-i intend to purify myself with ghusl in your heart




It was narrated that ‘Aishah (RA) said: When the Messenger of Allah (SAW) did ghusl for janaabah, he would wash his hands and do wudoo’ as for prayer, then he would wash himself, then he would run his fingers through his hair, then when he thought that it [the water] had reached his skin, he would pour water over it [the head] three times, then he would wash the rest of his body. [al-Bukhari (248) and Muslim (316)]

-all the 4 great imams said this waajib ghusl is accepted
-and sea water can be used for it


-this has 7 components:

-i intend to purify myself with ghusl



-Aisha and umm salamah taught us how to make ghusl


-women don’t need to remove their braids

-this includes your mouth and nose
-ghusl without washing mouth and nose is not accepted

... ‘al-hamdu lillah (praise be to Allah)’ fills the scales, and ‘subhan-Allah (how far is Allah from every imperfection) and ‘al-hamdulillah (praise be to Allah)’ fill that which is between heaven and earth....

Alhamdulillah is a part of surah Fatiha
-and 2 words are light on the tongue but heavy on the scale

Abu Hurairah (RA) reported: The Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: “Two words which are light on the tongue but which are dear to the Most Merciful and will weigh heavily in the balance: Subhan Allah wa bi hamdih, subhan Allah il-‘Azeem (Glory and praise be to Allah; Glory be to Allah the Almighty).” [al-Bukhari (6682) and Muslim (2694)]

When you say subhanAllah Allah loves you
-because you are declaring Allah is above all imperfections
-Allah said:

Glorified be your Lord, the Lord of Honour and Power! (He is free) from what they attribute unto Him! (As-Saffat 37:180)

And peace be on the Messengers! (As-Saffat 37:181)

And all the praise and thanks be to Allah, Lord of the 'Alamin (mankind, jinns and all that exists). (As-Saffat 37:182)

-He is free of all the weaknesses the kuffaar attribute to Him
-e.g. Allah repents or He beget a son

And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. (Genesis 6:6) King James Version

These ayahs have the expression that Allah Loves

The Rasool (saw) then said salah is nur

...And the salah (prayer) is a light,...

-this nur is the one you have on your face
-the munafiq don’t have this
-the prophet (saw) meant from this statement,
-that the light you need to guide you in the darkness
-salah has the same function
-it prevents you from haram activities

...Verily, As-Salat (the prayer) prevents from Al-Fahsha' (i.e. great sins of every kind, unlawful sexual intercourse, etc.) and Al-Munkar (i.e. disbelief, polytheism, and every kind of evil wicked deed, etc.) and the remembering (praising, etc.) of (you by) Allah (in front of the angels) is greater indeed [than your remembering (praising, etc.) Allah in prayers, etc.]. And Allah knows what you do. (Al-'Ankabut 29:45)

The first thing Allah will ask you on judgement day will be salah
-it is the difference between Islam and kufr

The Messenger (S.A.W.) told us in an authentic hadith , “The first thing the people will be accountable for on the Day of Judgment is prayer, Allah will say to His angels (even though he already knows) : “Look at my servants prayers. Were they complete or not?” If they were complete It will be written as complete. If they were not fully complete Allah will say: “See if my servant has voluntary prayers, If he has them Allah will say: Complete his obligatory prayers shortage with his voluntary prayers.” Then the rest of his deeds will be dealt with in the same manner.” [Reported by Imams Ahmad, Abu Dawood, An-Nisa'i, and Al-Hakim]

Abdullah ibn Shaqiq Uqayli (RA) reported, saying “The companions of Muhummad (SAW) did not regard neglect of any of the deeds as disbelief as they did (neglect) of Salah." [Sunan Tirmidhi (5/14) No. 2622 and Mustadrak al-Haakim (1/48) No. 12 who said it met the conditions of al-Bukhari and Muslim]

Jabir (RA) reported that Allah’s Messenger (SAW) said, “Between a man (Muslim) and shirk and disbelief lies neglect of salah.” [Sahih Muslim (1/88) No. 82, Sunan Tirmidhi (5/13) No. 2620, Sunan Abu Dawud (4/219) No. 4678, Sunan Ibn Majah (2/181) No. 1078, Sunan An-Nasa'i (1/232) No. 463, Musnad Ahmad (3/370) No. 15021]


...and charity is a proof,...

-the munafiqoon don’t give sadaqa
-the prophet meant that giving charity is a sign that you are real Muslim
-because the munafiqoon don’t give it out

And nothing prevents their contributions from being accepted from them except that they disbelieved in Allah and in His Messenger (Muhammad SAW); and that they came not to As-Salat (the prayer) except in a lazy state; and that they offer not contributions but unwillingly. (At-Tawbah 9:54)

-sadaqa is a proof of your emaan
-and one of the signs of the last days is that people will stop paying zakah

It was narrated that 'Abdullah bin 'Umar said: "The Messenger of Allah (SAW) turned to us and said: 'O Muhajirin, there are five things with which you will be tested, and I seek refuge with Allah lest you live to see them: Immorality never appears among a people to such an extent that they commit it openly, but plagues and diseases that were never known among the predecessors will spread among them. They do not cheat in weights and measures but they will be stricken with famine, severe calamity and the oppression of their rulers. They do not withhold the Zakah of the wealth, but rain will be withheld from the sky, and were it not for the animals, no rain would fall on them. They do not break the covenant with Allah and His Messenger, but Allah will enable their enemies to overpower them and take some of what is in their hands. Unless their leaders rule according to the Book of Allah and seek all good from that which Allah has revealed, Allah will cause them to fight one another. [Sunan Ibn Majah (Arabic/English), Vol. 5, pg. 222-223, Hadith #4019]

-and they don’t do so because they fear poverty
-they think it will eat up their wealth
-but they don’t understand zakah means yanmoo (to grow and increase)

Who is he that will lend to Allah a goodly loan so that He may multiply it to him many times? And it is Allah that decreases or increases (your provisions), and unto Him you shall return. (Al-Baqarah 2:245)

-the munafiqoon in medina said Allah and his rasul give fake promises
-when the prophet died the first thing they stopped doing was paying zakat
-they said Abu Bakr is not a prophet
-that they only pay zakat to a prophet

Abu Hurayra said, "When the Messenger of Allah (SAW), died and Abu Bakr was khalifa and those of the Arabs who were going to reject rejected, 'Umar said, 'How can we fight people when the Messenger of Allah said, "I am commanded to fight people until they say, 'There is no god but Allah.' Whoever says that, his property and life are protected from me, except when there is a legal right to them, and his reckoning is up to Allah."?' Abu Bakr said, 'By Allah, I will fight anyone who makes a distinction between prayer and zakat! Zakat is the right which is due on wealth. By Allah, if they refuse me a nose- rope which they used to pay to the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, I will fight them for refusing it!' 'Umar said, 'By Allah, then I realised that Allah had expanded Abu Bakr's breast in respect of the decision to fight and I recognised that it was the truth." [al-Bukhari and Muslim]

-when a person is a munafiq, sadaqa is a burden to him
-they fear poverty
-the promise of surah baqarah was called a fake promise by them

If you build a masjid for Allah He will build you one in paradise

Huraira (RA) reported: The Messenger of Allah (SAW) said, "When a man dies, his deeds come to an end, except for three: (1) A continuous charity, (2) knowledge by which people derive benefit, (3) pious son who prays for him." [Adab al-Mufrad al-Bukhari No. 38, Muslim (3/1255) No. 1631, Abu Dawud (3/117) No. 2880, al-Nasa'i (6/251) No. 3651, Tirmidhi (3/660) No. 1376, al-Darime (1/148) No. 559, Ahmad (2/372) No. 8831]

Narrated By 'Ubdaidullah Al-Khaulani: I heard 'Uthman bin 'Affan saying, when people argued too much about his intention to reconstruct the mosque of Allah's Apostle, "You have talked too much. I heard the Prophet saying, 'Whoever built a mosque, (Bukair thought that 'Asim, another subnarrator, added, "Intending Allah's Pleasure"), Allah would build for him a similar place in Paradise.'" [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 1, Book 8, Hadith #441]

-if you become wealthy the first thing you should do is build a masjid

...and patience is illumination,..

-when you have no sabr you will apostate

And among mankind is he who worships Allah as it were, upon the very edge (i.e. in doubt); if good befalls him, he is content therewith; but if a trial befalls him, he turns back on his face (i.e. reverts back to disbelief after embracing Islam). He loses both this world and the Hereafter. That is the evident loss. (Al-Hajj 22:11)

And obey Allah and His Messenger, and do not dispute (with one another) lest you lose courage and your strength depart, and be patient. Surely, Allah is with those who are As-Sabirin (the patient ones, etc.). (Al-Anfal 8:46)

-many ayats state Allah is with the patient

And seek help in patience and As-Salat (the prayer) and truly it is extremely heavy and hard except for Al-Khashi'un [i.e. the true believers in Allah - those who obey Allah with full submission, fear much from His Punishment, and believe in His Promise (Paradise, etc.) and in His Warnings (Hell, etc.)]. (Al-Baqarah 2:45)

-only the patient can enter paradise

Anas ibn Malik reported that Allah’s Messenger (SAW) said, “A time will come on the people when the patient among them on his religion will be like one who holds live coal (in his hand). [Sunan Tirmidhi (4/526) No. 2260]

On the authority of Abu Hurairah (RA) reported the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said; "Be prompt in doing good deeds (before you are overtaken) by turbulence which would be like a part of the dark night. A man would be a believer in the morning and turn to disbelief in the evening, or he would be a believer in the evening and turn disbeliever in the morning, and would sell his Faith for worldly goods."' [Sahih Muslim (1/110) No. 118, Musnad Ahmad (2/303) No. 8017, Sunan Tirmidhi (4/487) No. 2195]

-do any of you eat your shoes to survive?
-some live off food stamps

Abu Talhah (RA) narrated: We complained to Allah’s Messenger (SAW) about our hunger and raising from our stomach (the garment) bared the stone each of us had tied to it. He showed that he had two stones (tied to his stomach.) [Sunan Tirmidhi (4/585) No. 2371, Bayhaqi in ‘Shu'ab al Emaan’ (13/54) No. 9943]

-so have sabr the way the sahabah had sabr

...and the Qur’an is a proof either for you or against you...

-the Quran is an argument for you or against you
-some hafidh (memorizers) of the Qur'an do bad things
-you are not allowed to drink alcohol, take drugs and gamble
-you have to become the walking Quran

Yazid ibn Yabnus said, "We went to 'A'isha and said, 'Umm al-Mu'minin, what was the character of the Messenger of Allah (SAW), like?' She replied, 'His character was the Qur'an. Can you recite the sura entitled "The Believers"?' She said, 'Recite: "It is the believers who are successful: those who are humble in their prayer; those who turn away from worthless talk; those who actively pay zakat; those who guard their private parts." (23:1-5)' She said, 'That was the character of the Messenger of Allah (SAW).'" [al-Adab al-Mufrad al-Bukhari, No. 308]

-no backbiting
-that is the explanation of the hadith
-some people have memorized the Quran but say Allah is everywhere

The Most Beneficent (Allah) Istawa (rose over) the (Mighty) Throne (in a manner that suits His Majesty). (Ta-Ha 20:5)

-what is the point of memorizing the Quran and you don’t believe what it says?
-your aqeeda is against the Quran that you have memorized
-what is the reason for you memorizing the Quran?
-is it for showing off?
-Quran says Allah is above the Arsh (the throne)
-but you say He is everywhere

Some claim that the throne is an abstract noun
-what do you mean that the Arsh is an abstract noun?
-are you saying that you cannot touch the Arsh?
-Eight angels will carry the throne

And the angels will be on its sides, and eight angels will, that Day, bear the Throne of your Lord above them. (Al-Haqqah 69:17)

-the prophet said Mûsa will hold a pillar of the throne
-you are a hafidh

Narrated Abu Said: The Prophet said, 'People will be struck unconscious on the Day of Resurrection and I will be the first to regain consciousness, and behold! There I will see Moses holding one of the pillars of Allah's Throne. I will wonder whether he has become conscious before me of he has been exempted, because of his unconsciousness at the Tur (mountain) which he received (on the earth)." [Sahih Bukhari (4/153) No. 3398]

Say (O Muhammad SAW) : "I am only a man like you. It has been inspired to me that your Ilah (God) is One Ilah (God i.e. Allah). So whoever hopes for the Meeting with his Lord, let him work righteousness and associate none as a partner in the worship of his Lord." (Al-Kahf 18:110)

-you memorise the Quran but say contrary to it
-surah 18:110 says Muhammad is not Noor
-but you say Muhammad is alive in the grave
-if you are a hafidh you should know the verse in the Quran that says Muhammad is dead

Everyone shall taste death. And only on the Day of Resurrection shall you be paid your wages in full. And whoever is removed away from the Fire and admitted to Paradise, he indeed is successful. The life of this world is only the enjoyment of deception (a deceiving thing). (Aali Imran 3:185)

-the other evidence in the Quran for this:

Verily, you (O Muhammad SAW) will die and verily, they (too) will die. (Az-Zumar 39:30)

-if you are a hafidh how come you contradict the Quran?

Abu Huraira narrated that the Prophet said, "On the Day of Resurrection a group of companions will come to me, but will be driven away from the Lake-Fount, and I will say, 'O Lord (those are) my companions!' It will be said, 'You have no knowledge as to what they innovated after you left; they turned apostate as renegades (reverted from Islam)." [Sahih Bukhari (8/120) No. 6585]

Ibn 'Abbas said, "The Messenger of Allah (SAW) stood up among us to admonish us and said, 'O people! You will be gathered to Allah Almighty barefoot, naked and uncircumcised. "As We originated the first creation, so We will regenerate it. It a promise binding on Us. That is what We will do." (21:103) The first of creatures to be clothed on the Day of Rising will be Ibrahim. Men of my community will come and will be taken to the left. I will say, "O Lord, my Companions!" and it will be said, "You do not know what innovations they introduced after you." I will say the same as the righteous slave ('Isa) said, "I was a witness against them as long as I remained among them" to "The Almighty, the All-Wise." (5:117-118)) I will be told, "They never stopped turning back on their heels from the time you left them.'" [al-Bukhari (3349) and Muslim (2860)]

-Muhammad (saw) is alive in the grave is the aqeeda of the Shiites and Berailvis
-if Muhammad knew what was going on
-how come the angels told him that he did not know
-what they did after he left them
-this is the hadith used to checkmate them

Aqeeda makes you a lion
-you are a hafidh and a Berailvis; yet you worship the graves
-Allah made takfir on the grave worshipper

Surely, the religion (i.e. the worship and the obedience) is for Allah only. And those who take Auliya' (protectors and helpers) besides Him (say) : "We worship them only that they may bring us near to Allah." Verily, Allah will judge between them concerning that wherein they differ. Truly, Allah guides not him who is a liar, and a disbeliever. (Az-Zumar 39:3)

You (Alone) we worship, and You (Alone) we ask for help (for each and everything). (Al-Fatihah 1:5)

Nu’man ibn Bashir (RA) narrated the Prophet (SAW) said, “The supplication is itself worship.” Then he recited. And your Lord says, “Call upon Me, and I shall answer you. Surely those who are too arrogant to worship Me, they shall enter Hell, disgraced.” (40: 60) [Tirmidhi (5/456) No. 3372, Abu Dawud (2/76) No. 1479, Ibn Majah (5/5) No. 3828, Ahmad (4/271) No. 18410]

Yahya related to me from Malik from Zayd ibn Aslam from Ata ibn Yasar that the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said, "O Allah! Do not make my grave an idol that is worshipped. The anger on those who took the graves of their Prophets as places of prostration was terrible." [Muwatta Malik (1/223) No. 570, Musannaf Abdur Razzaq (1/406) No. 1587, Musnad Ahmad (2/246) No. 7352]

-there is no difference between the Buddhists and the Berailvis
-they are idol worshippers and they are kuffar
-salah behind them is baatil

...Every person starts his day as a vendor of his soul, either freeing it or causing its ruin…

-this statement of the prophet coincides with an ayah

And by Nafs (Adam or a person or a soul, etc.), and Him Who perfected him in proportion; (Ash-Shams 91:7)

Then He showed him what is wrong for him and what is right for him; (Ash-Shams 91:8)
Indeed he succeeds who purifies his ownself (i.e. obeys and performs all that Allah ordered, by following the true Faith of Islamic Monotheism and by doing righteous good deeds). (Ash-Shams 91:9)

And indeed he fails who corrupts his ownself (i.e. disobeys what Allah has ordered by rejecting the true Faith of Islamic Monotheism or by following polytheism, etc. or by doing every kind of evil wicked deeds). (Ash-Shams 91:10)


1. The rebuking soul

2. The soul that is prone to evil

A believer sees his sins as if he were sitting under a mountain which, he is afraid, may fall on him; whereas the wicked person considers his sins as flies passing over his nose and he just drives them away like this." [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 8, Book 75, Hadith #320]

3. The peaceful soul/The tranquil soul

If a woman stops menstruating and makes ghusl and sleeps with her husband then sees a little blood (i.e. realises she is still menstruating) does this man still have to make this payment which was mentioned?

-no he does not have to because it was a mistake
-a woman should study and know her cycle
-if you don't know your cycle you are not a pious Muslim according to the 4 pious Imams
-if she starts to see blood after stopping, the cycle was not completed
-some sisters can't keep watch on the cycle because of the birth control pills
-or that she is sick
-it causes irregularity

A woman in isdihatha can go to bed with her husband even if she is bleeding
-Shafi’i fiqh says isdihatha starts after 10 days
-Hanbali says up to 15 days
-scholars cannot make up their minds on this
-check with you local shaikh


Assalamu Alaikum Shaikh, you said washing the mouth and nose is part of washing the whole body, we start doing ablution and part of ablution is washing the mouth and nose, is this not enough or we still have to wash the mouth and nose again while washing our body. jzk.

Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu, if someone is being put to sleep for an operation and knows they will miss salah should they combine salah before or make them up after and does it depend on how many salah they will miss? jzk

-when you combine salah for this operation it is best to combine before
-after operation you can combine Maghrib and esha at esha time
-the prophet (saw) used to combine his prayers

'Abdullah b. Shaqiq reported: 'Ibn 'Abbas one day addressed us in the afternoon (after the afternoon prayer) till the sun disappeared and the stars appeared, and the people began to say: "Prayer, prayer." A person from Banu Tamim came there. He neither slackened nor turned away, but (continued crying): "Prayer, prayer." Ibn 'Abbas said: "May you be deprived of your mother, do you teach me Sunnah?" And then he said: "I saw the Messenger of Allah (SAW) combining the noon and afternoon prayers and the sunset and 'Isha prayers."' 'Abdullah b. Shaqiq said: 'Some doubt was created in my mind about it. So I came to Abu Huraira and asked him (about it) and he testified his assertion.' [Sahih Muslim (1/491) No. 705]

-Allah wants ease and comfort not difficulty for the Muslims
-to say you cannot combine is placing difficulty on the believers
-when someone is extreme use surah taha

Ta¬Ha. (Ta-Ha 20:1)

We have not sent down the Qur'an unto you (O Muhammad SAW) to cause you distress, (Ta-Ha 20:2)


Assalamu alaikum shaikh, I have been told that it is recommended to make wudu after ghusl as well...Is this correct???

-the way to make ghusl is to make intention in your heart
-you say Bismillah
-you wash hands
-as explained before in the dars
-refer to dars for all the points of ghusl
-wudu is only broken when you touch private parts with the naked palm
-the back of the hand does not break wudu
