Assalaamu ‘alaikum

Bismillahir Rahmaanir Raheem

My intention is to share my journey from being a Hindu to accepting Islam. I hope that my story will be an inspiration to the Ummah.

I was born into a devote Hindu home, where the normal activities included attending the temple which was built by my late grandfather, and fasting, as instructed by my parents. My family held a high profile within the Hindu community.  I obeyed my parents in the best way that I could in every aspect of life.

Qadhaa Salaah Rulings

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.

Question:

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. 

Jazaakallah

Correspondence of Hazrat Moulana Yunus Patel Saheb (rahimahullah)

Letter: 

Assalaamu ‘alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh

Respected Moulana

Should we believe in horoscopes and signs? Sometimes I read things about my sign and the prediction that is written for my sign upsets me if there is something scary. I want to know whether this information is true or baseless. Please clarify this.

May Allah bless you.
