Qadhaa Salaah Rulings


Thursday, 10 May 2018 08:06

The following are a few important masaa-il (rulings) that pertain to people who have many qadhaa salaah to perform.

1. If a person is unable to determine the exact number of salaah that he has missed, he should estimate a number that he is confident will cover the salaah that he has missed.  

2. When performing qadhaa salaah, it is necessary for one to specify which qadhaa he is performing. If it is difficult for one to determine the date of the specific salaah (e.g. The Zuhr missed yesterday or the day before) then one may make the following intention, “I am performing qadhaa of the last Zuhr Salaah I missed,” or “I am performing qadhaa of the first Zuhr Salaah from all the Zuhr Salaahs that I have missed.”

However, if a person merely makes the intention, “I am performing qadhaa of Zuhr Salaah” without any further specification of which qadhaa of Zuhr he is performing, the intention will be insufficient and the qadhaa will not be fulfilled. Rather, the salaah will be performed as nafl.

Punctuality on Ma’moolaat

Assalaamu ‘alaikum

I am newly married. Alhamdulillah, Allah Ta‘ala has blessed me with a noble husband and sweet in-laws. My life is alhamdulillah pretty blissful. However, my heart is restless because my ma’mulaat (daily practices) are gone crazy ever since I got married. I have not read Tahajjud even once since my nikaah. I struggle to make a khatam of the Quraan Majeed and I don’t have any azkaar in my life. I feel down when I think about how weak my relationship and bond with Allah Ta‘ala has become.

I struggle to be in in the remembrance of Allah Ta‘ala. All my sunan and nawaafil acts are slowly leaving me. I am sad because of this. Please advise me and give me a simple routine to do with punctuality. Make du‘aa for us, and make du‘aa that Allah Ta‘ala bless us with pious offspring.

The Powerful Product of Purity

Among the prominent rulers of Afghanistan during the 1800s was a man named Dost Muhammad Khan who passed away in 1863.

At one point during his rule, he appointed one of his sons as his successor. After some time, when an enemy force attacked his kingdom, he dispatched this very son to defend the kingdom and recover the territory that was lost to the invading forces. On the instruction of his father, the son set out with an army.

Later on, Dost Muhammad Khan received the news that his son had been defeated and had fled from the battlefield. Extremely pained, grieved and disappointed, he entered his home and addressed the boy’s mother saying, “Our son has turned out to be weak and cowardly! He has suffered defeat and is fleeing the battlefield, whereas this is the time for him to show his courage and bravery! Furthermore, I have appointed him as my successor. The people will now tell me that I have appointed a weakling and a coward as my successor. This has caused me immense grief and disappointment.”

When the body is afflicted with any disease then to help the body regain its health, appropriate treatment has to be adopted. For this, a qualified practitioner will have to be consulted. After evaluating the condition, he will make a diagnosis and prescribe the recommended treatment.

The reasons why it is necessary to consult a practitioner are too many to mention here. However, it is sufficient to understand that diagnosing the illness is a complex process. This is the reason why a consultation in person is so important and also why self-diagnosis is not advisable.

Once diagnosis has been completed, treatment would begin. There is a three step approach to treatment which is:

Fed by the Thief

Ask our children:

1. Who gives us food, money, clothing and everything that we have?

2. Can we run away from what Allah Ta‘ala has written for us?

Now tell them the story:

Aasif was a little boy with a lot of questions. He was always asking “why”, “who” and “when?” If his parents or his Moulana told him the answer, he wouldn’t believe them and would try to check for himself if their answer was true.
