Can I Make-up Salaahs for the Deceased

20 Jan
Not offering Some of the Prayers, due to losing One’s Mind
Question:

A man died while owing some obligatory prayers which he had not offered while he was ill and out of his mind is it an obligation upon his living relatives, men or women, to make up these prayers, or will the deceased not be held accountable for them due to him losing his mind, and is it not an obligation upon his heirs to make up for these obligatory prayers?

Answer:

If a person does not offer the obligatory prayers due to insanity and he has no physical illness, there is no sin upon him as he will not be held accountable for them due to him losing his mind. There is no necessity for his heirs to make up for them. And if he abandoned his prayer while he was rational, whether or not his body was afflicted with disease then he is a wicked sinner due to his abandoning prayer, and his affair will be left to his Lord and his prayer does not need to be made up.

Praying for Someone Whose Name You Forgot

He wants to perform Hajj for some People but he does not know some of their Names
Question:

I have about four people who have died among my uncles and grandparents. Some of them are men and some are women, but I do not know some of their names. I want to send someone to perform Hajj for each of them from my own personal money.

Answer:

If the matter is like what has been mentioned, then whoeverýs name you know from the women and men, there is no problem. Whoeverýs name you do not know, it is permissible for you to make intentions for the men and women from the paternal and maternal uncles and aunts according to the arrangement of their ages and descriptions. The intention is sufficient in that, even if you do not know the name. And success is from Allah. May Allah send blessing and peace upon our Prophet, his family and his companions.

Shaking Hands vs Wudhu`

20 Jan
Touching a Women does not invalidate Wudhu’
Question:

What is the Islanmic ruling on a man touching a woman who is Ajnabiyyah, without any kind of barrier does it invalidate his Wudhu’ or not? And what does the term Ajnabiyyah mean?

Answer:

Touching a woman does not invalidate Wudhu’ in any circumstances, according to the most authoritative opinion of the scholars. This is because it has been authentically reported from, the Prophet- sallallahu alaihi wasallam- that he use to kiss some of his wives, and then he would pray, without performing Wudhu'( Abu Dawud nos.178, 179 and At-Tirmithi no.86)A woman should not shake hands with any man who is not a,Mahram ( Her Husband and any other man that she cannot marry such as a brother, uncle etc.) for her, just as a man should not shake hands with a women for whom he is not a Mahram, based upon the saying of the Prophet-Sallallahu alaihi wasallam. Verily I do not shake hands with a women ( An-Nasa’I no. 4186 and Al-Muwattta no.2) and what has been authentically reported from A’ishah may Allah be pleased with her, that the Prophet -Sallallahu alaihi wasallam- used to accept the pledges of allegiance from women in words only; she said : And no women ever touched his hand( Al Bukhari nos.2713,4891,5288,7214 and Muslim no. 1866.

And Allah, the Most High says: Indeed in the Messenger of Allah ( Muhammed) you have a good example to follow ( Al- Ahzab 33:21)

Also, Women shaking shaking hands with men and men shaking with women whom they are not closely Mahram for is a cause of Fitna for all. And Islamic law which is perfect, prevents all things which lead to that which Allah has forbidden.

From the above, it is clear that the Ajnabiyyah women is one whom it is not forbidden for him to marry due to kinship or another legal reason- this is Ajnabiyyah. As for the one whom he cannot marry due to ties in kinship, such as his mother, his sister, his aunt, or any other legal constraint, such as breastfeeding or relationship by marriage, she is not an Ajnabiyyah. And with Allah is success.

Speaking to Non Mahram by Phone

The Ruling on Speaking to a Women on the Telephone
Question:

What is the ruling if a young, unmarried man spoke with a young unmarried women on the telephone?

Answer:

It is not permissible to speak with an unrelated woman in a manner which may excite desire, such as by speaking words of love, flirting and subduing one’s voice , whether on the telephone or otherwise. This is in accordance with the words of Allah, Most High:Then be not soft in speech, lest he in whose heart is a disease (of hypocrisy, or evil desire for adultery, etc.) should be moved with desire& As for speaking when there is a need, there is no objection to it, as long as it is free from corruption, but only in cases of necessity.

Should Woman Pray as Men Pray

20 Jan
There Is No Difference Between The Prayer Of The Man & The Woman
Question:

The Messenger sallAllaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam said: “Pray as you have seen me praying” And that which is understood from this Hadeeth is that there is no difference between the prayer of the man and the prayer of the woman, not in the standing, the sitting and nor in the prostration. So I have been acting in accordance with that since reaching the age of at-Takleef (burdened/obligated to abide by the Sharee’ah). But we have women in Kenya who quarrel with me and they say that your prayer is not correct because it resembles the man’s prayer. And the examples they mention where the man’s prayer differs from the woman’s prayer are holding the two hands upon the chest and when releasing them both and the keeping of the back level in the bowing position (Rukoo’) and other than that from the issues about which I have conviction. So I would like you to clarify to me is there a difference between the performance of the prayer of the man and the woman?

Answer:

O questioner, my sister for the sake of Allaah, indeed that which is correct is that there is no difference between the man’s prayer and the woman’s prayer. As for what some of the jurists mention from the difference [in the prayer of the man and the woman] then there is no evidence for it. And the hadeeth that you mentioned in the question being the statement of the prophet may the peace and blessings be upon him:“Pray as you have seen me praying”1

[This Hadeeth]is a fundamental principle which generally includes everybody and the legislations are in generality for men and women except for when there is established proof making it specific. So the Sunnah for the woman is that she prays as the men pray in the rukoo’ (bowing), the prostration (sujood), the recitation, putting the hands upon the chest and other than that. This is what is best, this is how to put them (hands) upon the knees in the rukoo’, this is how to put them upon the ground in prostration either in level with shoulders or in level with the ears, this how you make your back level in the rukoo’ and this what is said in the rukoo’ and the prostration and after the rising from the rukoo’ and rising up from the prostration and between the two prostrations. All of it is just the same as the men acting in accordance to his (sallAllaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) statement:

“Pray as you have seen me praying” [Reported by al-Bukhaaree in as-Saheeh.]
