Bring Your Zakaatul Fitr as Food to These Masaajid

بسم اللہ الرحمن الرحیم

As we all know, most of the places and the masaajid  are busy these days collecting the money for the zakaatul fitr. However, according to the scholars, the most correct opinion is that we should distribute Zakaatul fitr as food. I was able to compile a list of Masaajid that take Zakatul fitr as food. Bring it to them or hand them over to the Masaakeen yourself.

If you know any place or a Masjid that takes Zakatul fitr as food, please share it with us. BarakAllahu feekum.

There Cannot be Two Witr Prayers in One Night – Shaykh Bin Baaz

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Is it permissible to offer two Witr prayers in one night?

No one should offer two Witr prayers in one night because the Prophet (sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam) said: There cannot be two Witr prayers in one night. [1] And he (sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam) also said: Make the end of your prayer at night Witr. [2] And he (sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam) said: Whoever feared that he will not get up at the end of the night should perform Witr at the beginning of it. And whoever desired to stand at the end of it should pray Witr at the end of the night. [3] If it is easy for the Muslim to perform the night prayer at the end of the night, he should seal his prayer with one Rakah of Witr. Whoever found difficulty in this should perform his Witr at the start of the night. And if Allaah makes it easy for him (after that) to stand in prayer, he should offer what he can in units of two Rakahs, and he need not repeat the Witr, for the first Witr is sufficient for him, according to the aforementioned Hadith which is: There cannot be two Witr prayers in one night.

A Very Beneficial Gathering with Shaykh Hasan al-Banna at Masjid Rahmah Conference

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Aslamulaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu,

We had a great time yesterday (Friday, July 06, 2o12) with our beloved Shaykh Hasan al-Banna (Hafidhahullah) at the Sheraton Hotel in Parsippany, New Jersey, USA. The conference started with the Jummuah khutbay delivered by the Shaykh. After Asr prayer, his son, Shehadudeen, went over the book Fadl al-Islaam (The Vitures of Islaam) of Shaykh Mohammad bin Abdul Wahaab (Rahimahullah). Shaykh Hasan started his session right after the maghrib salah and he taught us the Creed of Ibn Abee Zaid al-Qairawaanee.

Today, Saturday, July 07, 2012, he will start after the dhurah prayer and continue where he left off. Then he will resume his class after maghrib prayer today insha Allah. We encourage all the brothers and sisters in area to attend and benefit from this beneficial seminar.

BarakAllahu feekum,

Masjid Rahmah 8th Annual Educational Seminar July 06 – July 08 2012

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Aslamulaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu,

I just got off the phone with Abu Muhammad al-Maghribi حفظه الله regarding the upcoming Masjid Rahmah’s conference in Parsippany, NJ. He mentioned that one of the brothers from the majid administration contacted him to join them in the conference.  So he contacted Shaykh Rabee bin Hadee al-Madkhale regarding this matter and the Shaykh advised to participate and clarify the matter to everyone in the community. He also mentioned that Shaykh Hasan Al-Banna حفظه الله and Adur-Rahmaan Omaisan حفظه الله also contacted Shaykh Rabee to attend the conference and the Shaykh said that exact same thing that they both should join them and command the good and forbid the evil. It is a great news for all of us so we take the advantage and learn from the mashaaikh. The following are the confirmed speakers for the conference:

  • Shaykh Hasan Al-Banna حفظه الله
  • Abdur-Rahman Omaisan حفظه الله
  • Abu Muhammad al-Maghribi حفظه الله (former Imaam of Masjid Rahmah)
  • Taalib Abdullah  حفظه الله

Recent Updates Regarding Masjid Rahmah, Newark, New Jersey, USA

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
Aslamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu,

First of all, we thank Allah عزَّ وجلَّ for aiding us in rectifying the affairs at Masjid Rahmah in Newark, New Jersey, USA. Then we thank all the brothers who got together and were concerned about the matter and helped one another to bring the community back to where it was, walhamdulillah. Our gathering with our noble brother Hasan As-Somali حفظه الله last night (2nd of Sha’baan 1433 AH (Friday 23 June 2012 AD)) was a great pleasure and beneficial at the same time. It was very pleasing to see all the brothers upon the Sunnah of Prophet صلَّى اللهُ عليه وآله وسَلَّم. The itinerary stated that there is going to be a class of Aqeedah Ar-Razain but our Brother Hasan As-Somali changed the topic and talked about the Brotherhood and Companionship in Islaam. He went over the book of Allamah Ibn Qudamah Al-Maqdisi (رحمه الله). It was a great reminder for all of us and a wake up call so we could reestablish the community upon the Tawheed, Sunnah, and upon the understanding of Salaf as-Saalih.

For those who are unaware of situation regarding Masjid Rahmah, please read this letter at sent by the new administration of the Masjid to our father, duktoor, al-allamah Rabee bin Hadee al-Madkhalee (حفظه الله). In brief, the new administration stated that they have changed the former administration and they are prepared to correspond with our Salafi brothers in America and anywhere in the west.

It is a great news not only for the Masjid administration but also for those who have been benefiting from all the duroos and khutub of the scholars and the students of knowledge for a long time.

Our Noble brother Hasan As-Somali حفظه الله will start the dars on the topic of Aqeedah of Ar-Raaziyaan tonight right after the Maghrib salah insha Allah. We encourage all the brothers to participate in this beneficial gathering.

We ask Allah to aid and assist us in gaining beneficial knowledge, righteous actions, and spreading the dawah Salafiyah, ameen.

جزاكم الله خير وبارك الله فيكم

A Monk Who Has Prayed at the Same Spot for 20 Years

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

وَمَن يَبْتَغِ غَيْرَ الْإِسْلَامِ دِينًا فَلَن يُقْبَلَ مِنْهُ وَهُوَ فِي الْآخِرَةِ مِنَ الْخَاسِرِينَ

And whoever seeks a religion other than Islam, it will never be accepted of him, and in the Hereafter he will be one of the losers. [Surah Al-i-Imran 3:85]

These footprints are believed to have been ‘carved’ into the floorboards by a Buddhist monk who has prayed at the same spot for many years

Hua Chi, who believes he is around 70 years old, says he has kowtowed at the same spot so many times that his footprints are imprinted on the wood

The monk and doctor of traditional medicine has been coming to the small temple in the monastery town of Tongren in China’s western Qinghai province for nearly twenty years

Every day, before sunrise, Hua arrives at the temple steps, placing his feet onto his footprints as he bends down to kowtow a few thousand times before walking around the temple

From the Worst of Mankind by Shaykh Bin Baaz

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

ولأحمد بسند جيد، عن ابن مسعود مرفوعا إن من شرار الناس من تدركهم الساعة وهم أحياء، والذين يتخذون القبور مساجد – – – رواه أبو حاتم في صحيحه.

Reported by Ahmad (rahmatullahi alaihi) with a good chain, on the authority of Ibn Mas’ood (radi Allahu ‘anhu) reaching back to the Prophet (sallAllaahu alaihi wa sallam),

“Verily from the worst of mankind are those whom the Hour will be established upon and they are alive, and those whom have taken the graves as places of worship (masaajid).”

Also reported by Abu Haatim (rahimahullah) in his Saheeh.
This Hadeeth is reported on the authority of Ibn Mas’ood (radi Allahu ‘anhu) reaching back to the Prophet (sallAllaahu alaihi wa sallam),
“Verily from the worst of mankind are those whom the Hour will be established upon and they are alive, and those whom have taken the graves as places of worship (masaajid).”

This is because the Hour will only be established upon the worst of creation. As far as the believers their souls will be taken by a pleasant wind prior to this (i.e. the establishment of the Hour).

Those who take the graves as places of worship are from the worst of mankind because they are a means and cause for the people falling into shirk (polytheism), innovation, and erroneous acts. This is because once the people view such a thing as correct they will naturally conclude and say, “Since they have built (a place of worship over this grave, the occupant of it) must then be supplicated to and called on in times of peril.

However, there is no problem if the grave is in close proximity to the cemetery. This is because the walkway in that case will separate between the two, and this is superior (to masaajid being on top of graves).

This is correct just as we have previously mentioned (when speaking about) extremism, that results in the one whom they are extreme about being taken as an object of worship instead of or along with Allah. Due to this the people exaggerated the status of some of the righteous. They thus, took them as objects of worship instead of or along with Allah. Examples of this are like the graves of Al Hassan (radi Allahu ‘anhu), Al Hussain (radi Allahu ‘anhu), Faatimah (radi Allahu ‘anha) and other than them. This nation has likewise exaggerated the status of the Messenger (sallAllaahu alaihi wa sallam) and consequently fallen into (shirk by) worshipping him (by supplicating to him and the like) and seeking his aid in times of peril instead of or along with Allah; this (also happened) in the times of antiquity when the people of Nuh (sallAllaahu alaihi wa sallam) exaggerated the status of the righteous until they eventually worshipped them (which is polytheism) as we have already mentioned.

Where Should The Worshiper Look When Performing Ruku`, Sujud and Tashahhud

بسم اللہ الرحمن الرحیم

Q 9: A worshiper, while in the posture of standing during Salah (Prayer), should look at the spot of Sujud (prostration). Where should the worshiper look when performing Ruku` (bowing), Sujud and Tashahhud (testification recited in the sitting position in the second/ last unit of Prayer)?

A: During Ruku`, the worshiper should also look at the spot of Sujud, whereas during Tashahhud they should look at their pointing (index) finger. During Sujud, they should look at the place where their eyes meet the ground.

May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family and Companions.
