Qurbani - Some Masaa'il


Sunday, 04 November 2007 16:37

1. Qurbani is waajib on all Muslims (male and female) who are sane, baaligh (reached the age of puberty), and are possessors of nisaab (minimum zakatable wealth). It is not necessary that the ownership of such wealth be for a full year.

2. Qurbani is waajib on a man for himself only, not for his wife and children. However, it is his duty to ensure that the Qurbani of his wife and baaligh children is performed if they own nisaab. This Qurbani will be waajib from their personal wealth. However, if he performs their Qurbani from his own wealth with their permission, it will be valid.

3. The animal should either be held by the horns and brought along to the place of slaughter or driven from the back. It is cruel to grab the hind legs of the animal and drag it along.

4. The slaughtering should not take place in front of another animal.

5. It is Sunnat-e-Muak’kadah (highly stressed sunnat) to slaughter the animal while facing the Qiblah. The slaughterer himself should face Qiblah. To omit this without a valid excuse is makrooh (Imdadul Fatawa—Vol. 3, Pg. 559).

6. Skinning the animal should not commence until the carcass has become cold.

7. The skin or any part of the animal cannot be given as payment to one who has been employed to assist in the skinning, cleaning, etc.


Hazrath Moulana Omarjee Saheb (R.A.)


Sunday, 04 November 2007 16:37

The demise of a senior Aalim and selfless, dedicated son of Islam in the calibre of Hazrath Moulana Abdul Haq Omarjee Saheb (R.A.) is an immeasurable loss to all. May Allah Ta’ala grant Moulana high stages in Jannah and make his great sacrifices for Deen a means of perpetual rewards for him. Aameen.

   Hazrath Moulana Omarjee Saheb was closely attached to Madrasah Taleemuddeen. Despite his ill health he always graced the Jalsas and other functions of the institution. He also assisted the Madrasah in various ways and would always enquire about the affairs of the Madrasah. May Allah Ta’ala shower His rahmah and barakah upon him and grant his family and associates sabr-e-jameel. Aameen

The great Khalifah of his time, Hazrath Umar bin Abdul Aziz (R.A.), had dispatched Mansoor bin Ghalib to fight the armies of the enemy. Umar bin Abdul Aziz (R.A.) on that occasion wrote the following advice to him:

“Adopt Taqwa (fear of Allah) in every condition since Taqwa is the best provision, the most effective strategy and true power. Amirul Mu’mineen commands you that you and your companions must fear the disobedience of Allah Ta’ala more than you fear the enemy. Sins are more dangerous for a person than his enemy. The enemy overcomes one due to one’s sins. If we are sinners like our enemy, the enemy will prove to be superior in strength and numbers. Do not guard yourself against any enemy more than you guard yourself against sins. Do not be concerned about anything more than your sins”

(Ta’meere Hayaat).






Do I want barakah?



Do I want barakah in my life and wealth? Yes indeed, I will love that. Do I want a double reward for the sadaqah (charity) that I give? A double reward? Most certainly. Do I want the support of Allah Ta’ala? I definitely need His support. Do I want high stages and lofty ranks on the Day of Judgment? Absolutely.
If indeed I want all the above, and much more, there is a simple way of achieving it — joining family ties. Such a simple prescription for such great rewards? Is this an exaggeration? No. This is definitely no exaggeration. It is the declaration of none other than Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam).

Q&A: Western Garments


Sunday, 04 November 2007 16:33

The article on dressing in the last issue of Al-Haadi refers:
I must admit that in the last few years, I too have gradually become more Westernised in my dressing style. However, I now wear such garments only at home. I do this for my husband. Is there anything wrong with this?

The Test of Wealth


Sunday, 04 November 2007 16:31

Among the fundamental beliefs of a Muslim is the belief in the reality of life after death. A Mu’min believes that the grave is either a garden of Jannah, which the inmate of the grave enjoys or it is a part of hell wherein the inmate suffers. He also firmly believes that the Day of Judgment will come and every person will have to give an account of his life in this world. Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) is reported to have said: “On the Day of Judgment no person will move from the spot he is standing on until he is asked four questions: How did he spend his life? How did he spend his youth? How did he earn his money and where did he spend it? How much did he practice upon the knowledge of Deen he possessed? (Mishkaat).
