I’tikaaf

Written by

Sitting for I’tikaaf in the musjid during the last ten days of Ramadhaan is an ibaadah which is sunnah mu’akkadah alal-kifaayah. (Durrul Mukhtaar 2/442)

Sunnah mu’akkadah alal-kifaayah refers to a sunnah whose obligation is placed upon the entire locality collectively. If one or a few individuals of the locality fulfil it, the entire locality will be absolved of the obligation. However, if no one from the entire locality fulfils it then all the people of the locality will be sinful for neglecting it.

Taraaweeh Salaah

Written by

The month of Ramadhaan is an extremely blessed month in which the Glorious Qur’aan was revealed. Laylatul Qadr, which is more virtuous than a thousand months, falls in this month. The reward of a nafl deed is that of a fardh and the reward of a fardh is multiplied seventy times. Fasting during the day has been made fardh, and performing the Taraaweeh Salaah during the night has been made sunnah.

Hazrat Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “The one who stands in Taraaweeh Salaah during the month of Ramadhaan, with imaan and with the hope of reward, all his past (minor) sins will be forgiven.” (Saheeh Muslim #759)

The Auspicious Month of Ramadhaan

Written by

Ramadhaan is a month of immense blessing and mercy and is among the greatest bounties of Allah Ta‘ala upon this ummah. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) fervently explained the greatness of this month and the countless blessings which it brings. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “Had my ummah only known the great virtues and abundant blessings of Ramadhaan, they would have desired that the entire year be Ramadhaan” (Saheeh ibnu Khuzaimah #1886).

Approximately two months prior to Ramadhaan, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) would begin eagerly anticipating the arrival of Ramadhaan. Upon sighting the crescent of Rajab, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) would recite the following dua:

اَللّٰهُمَّ بَرِكْ لَنَا فِيْ رَجَبْ وَشَعْبَانْ وَبَلِّغْنَا رَمَضَانْ

O Allah! Bless us in the months of Rajab and Sha’baan and make us reach the month of Ramadhaan. (Shu’abul Imaan #3815)

Aadaab of Interacting with Elders – Part Seven

Written by

23. If your elders are engaged in some ibaadah or work and you wish to speak to them or discuss some matter with them, you should wait for them to complete whatever they are engaged in. When waiting for them, you should wait at a slight distance so that they are not disturbed by your presence. Thereafter, when they complete their ibaadah or work, you may meet them and discuss your need with them. In this manner, you will not disrupt their programme nor inconvenience them.

Aadaab of Interacting with Elders – Part Six

Written by

20. If you notice your elders making a mistake, then do not be hasty in correcting them immediately, as it is possible that you have not understood the situation correctly. Hence, when you find a suitable opportunity, then respectfully enquire from them regarding the matter. In this way, if they had made a mistake, they will be able to correct themselves, and if you had misunderstood the situation, they will be able to clarify your misunderstanding and guide you correctly.

After assembling in Daar-un-Nadwah and discussing their predicament in regard to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), the chieftains of the Quraish eventually decided that the solution was to assassinate Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). On arriving at this decision, they concluded their meeting and dispersed.

17. When walking with your seniors, let them walk ahead of you. [1]

When the Quraish realised that gradually, all the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) had migrated to Madinah Munawwarah, and the departure of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was also imminent, then a number of the chieftains of the Quraish convened in Daar-un-Nadwah to discuss this ‘predicament’.

Among the chieftains of the Quraish who gathered in Daar-un-Nadwah were: Utbah bin Rabee’ah, Shaibah bin Rabee’ah, Abu Sufyaan bin Harb, Tu’aimah bin Adi, Jubair bin Mut’im, Haarith bin Aamir, Nadhr bin Haarith, Abul Bakhtari bin Hishaam, Zam’ah bin Aswad, Hakeem bin Hizaam, Abu Jahal bin Hishaam, Nabeeh and Munabbih – the two sons of Hajjaaj, Umayyah bin Khalaf, etc.

13. You should not hope or desire that your elders call you by respectable titles, etc.
