Q: 130 – Title: While Rasulullah s.a.w. passed away what do such stories convey does prophet(saw) go anywhere physically.

Question

1) I want to know whether it is permissible to say

“Oh messenger of Allah. be merciful.”

“Bestow us with a look of favour” as mentioned in the qasida of maulana Jami

2)hikayat 50 of fazil durood narrates the story of maulana jami.plz give the source of it.

3)is prophet(saw) physically alive as people have received reply to their salutations at the blessed grave. Moreover I have heard about a pious person who was hungry in prophet(saw)’s mosque and he saw prophet(saw) in his dream giving bread to him, he ate it half. when he woke he saw half of the bread with him.

what do such stories convey does prophet(saw) go anywhere physically.

Answer

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Assalaamu `alaykum waRahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

1) It is permissible to say "Oh messenger of Allah be merciful". The mercy which one asks from Nabi ??? ???? ???? ? ??? is different from the mercy which one asks from Allah Ta'ala. It is also permissible to say "bestow us with a look of favour".

2) We could not allocate the reference of this story.

3) Nabi ??? ???? ???? ? ??? is physically alive. However, His life is different to this worldly life in that He is not in need of food, drink etc. As for the incidents in your query, then these are all karamat's (miracles) which were granted to some chosen slaves of Allah Ta'ala. For further information of Nabi ??? ???? ???? ? ??? being alive in His grave kindly refer to the following link:

Q: 129 – Title: Our eldest brother left Islam and became a Jehovahs witness. He then reverted back to Islam. Can you please clarify the following...

Question

Our eldest brother left Islam and became a Jehovahs witness.  He then reverted back to Islam.  Can you please clarify the following:

a) Can he be relied on as a witness or act in such capacity.
b) He states that he should be the executor of the will for our late fathers inheritance being the eldest brother.  What is the Islamic stance on this position.
c) Does he have a right to any inheritance.
d) What is he not permitted to do in all other respects.

Answer

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Assalaamu `alaykum waRahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

You have mentioned in the query that your brother left the religion of Islam to become a Jehovah’s Witness. The beliefs of the Jehovah’s Witnesses are against the beliefs of Islam, hence; by becoming a Jehovah’s Witness, he became a murtad (renegade). The laws related to a murtad, mentioned in the books of fiqh, will apply on your brother for the period of time he was a Jehovah’s Witness.

However, Islam does not restrict a murtad from coming back into the fold of Islam, but rather advices the Muslims to encourage him to come back into the fold of Islam. Therefore, if a murtad regrets leaving the fold of Islam, repents sincerely and comes into the fold of Islam by reciting the Kalimah and exempting himself from all religions besides Islam, he will be treated as a normal Muslim and will enjoy all the rights that a common Muslim enjoys. It will not be permissible to treat him as a renegade or a non-Muslim after coming back into the fold of Islam.

(Kifayat al-Mufti Vol.1 Pgs.40, 46, 55 – Maktabah Haqqaniyyah)

1) Being a murtad is one of the reasons for not accepting a person as a witness. However, once the person comes into the fold of Islam, the rulings related to a murtad will not apply. Therefore, it will be incorrect not to rely on your brother as a witness because he had left the fold of Islam before. He will be treated as a common Muslim, and will be relied as a witness, if the other conditions related to a witness are found.

2) Firstly, since your brother has come back into Isalm, he cannot be deprived of being the executor of the estate just because he had left the fold of Islam. Hence, if he qualifies to be the executor of the will according to the principles laid out hereunder, it will be permissible for him to be the executor of your father’s will.

Secondly, the deceased holds the right to stipulate the executor of his will before he passes away. Once an executor has been stipulated by the deceased, the heirs to the estate do not hold the right to stipulate someone else as the executor. However, if the deceased had not stipulated anyone as the executor, or had stipulated someone who is not reliable or does not possess the qualities of an executor, the Qaadhi (judge of an Islamic Court) holds the right to stipulate the executor of the estate.

In the light of the abovementioned, the person stipulated by your father will be appointed as the executor of the estate. If he has not stipulated anyone as the executor, you should request a group of reliable local ‘Aalims to stipulate an executor for the estate. However, if all the heirs to your father’s estate are unanimous in stipulating your brother or any other person as the executor, it will be permissible for them to do so.

3) If your brother had come back into the fold of Islam before the demise of your father, he will inherit from the estate of your father. If he was a Jehovah’s Witness at the time of demise of your father, he will not inherit from the estate of your father.

4) This has been clarified above.

Q: 127 – Title: what are the signs of the qiyamat which has already been passed and we are in what stage of the signs of the last hour

Question

Answer

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Assalaamu `alaykum waRahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

The signs of Qiyamat can be divided into three categories;

  1. Those signs that have elapsed.
  2. Presently occurring (Minor signs).
  3. Still to occur (Major signs).

The signs of Qiyamat that have elapsed are many, of these are;

  • The birth and death of Nabi (Sallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam). (Jami Al-Sagir, Bukhari)
  • The Muslims conquering Bait Al-Muqadas (in the time of the Sahaba). (Bukhari)
  • The Plague of Unwas (city in Palestine). (Fath Al-Bari)
  • False Prophets. (Bukhari)
  • A Furious fire ignited in Hejaz which reached Basra. (Bukhari)

The following are minor signs of Qiyamat that are already apparent;

  • Lost of trust (from the hearts of people). (Bukhari)
  • Lost of ilm and rampant ignorance. (Bukhari)
  • Widespread adultery (Zina). (Bukhari)
  • Interest (Riba) being widespread. (Tabrani)
  • Appearance of musical instruments. (Ibn Majah)
  • Extensive use of alcohol. (Muslim)
  • Competing with each other in decorating Masjids. (Ahmad)
  • Competing with each other in building (houses, building etc.) (Bukhari)
  • Abundance of killing. (Muslim)
  • Contrition in/of time. (Bukhari)
  • Extensive immorality, break of family relations and evil character among neighbors. (Ahmad)
  • The use of black dye by men. (Ahmad)
  • Widespread miserliness. (Tabrani)
  • Abundance of earthquakes. (Bukhari)
  • Extensive trade/business until a woman would accompany/join her husband in trade and business (Ahmad).
  • Removal of the pious (by Allah Ta’ala). (Ahmad)
  • Salam (to say Assalamu Alaykum) will be made by a person only to those whom he knows. (Ahmad)
  • Ilm (Knowledge) will be sought from young (Asagir). (Jami As-Sagir)
  • Women would be clothed yet naked (due to their style of clothing). (Ahmad)
  • Presence of lairs. (Muslim)
  • False oaths will be taken. (Ahmad)
  • The presence of more women than men. (Bukhari)
  • Unexpected and sudden deaths. (Tabrani)

(Ashrat Al-sa’at, Dar Ibn Al-Jawzi)

It is evident from the above that all the minor signs of the hour are already present and it’s only the major signs of Qiyamat that are awaited. The coming of Imam Mahdi (Rahmatullahi Alayhi) is one of the major signs of Qiyamat. At the time of his appearance it will be known to the Muslims. However the exact time of his appearance is unknown.  At the time of his arrival the Iman of a believer must be very strong in order to face the trials and tribulations that will be apparent at that time. Therefore, it is the duty of every Muslim to prepare spiritually and physically for his death by performing good actions and perchance one witness’s the time of Imam Mahdi (Rahmatullahi Alayhi) he will be spiritually and physically prepared by him having done good actions.

For more information on this topic the following may be read:

At the approach of Qiyamah there will be certain tragic incidents which will unfold for example; wide spread ignorance, the common usage of alcohol, the appearance of Imam Mahdi etc.

Abu Huraira (RadiAllahu Anu) narrates that Rasullah (Sallahu Alayhi Wa sallam) is reported to have said; "When Amanat (trust) is misused then, wait for Qiyamah (Qiyamah is near) someone inquired how will trust be misused! He (Sallahu Alayhi Wa sallam) replied when Command (of affairs) is handed over to the wrong people". (Fath Al Bari Vol.1.Pg.188, Qadimi Kutub Khana)

Anas (RadiAllahu Anu) narrates that Nabi (Sallahu Alayhi Wa Salam) is reported to have said; "Verily, amongst the signs of Qiyamah is; Knowledge will be snatched away, ignorance will become wide spread, alcohol will be extensively used and Zina (adultery) will become common".   (Fath Al Bari Vol.1.Pg.235, Qadimi Kutub Khana)

Abu Musa (RadiAllahu Anu) narrates that Nabi (Sallahu Alayhi Wa Salam) is reported to have said; "At the approach of Qiyamah knowledge will be uplifted, ignorance will become widespread and Harj (killing) will become rampant". (Fath Al Bari Vol.13, Pg.16, Qadimi Kutub Khana)

Hafiz Ibnu Hajar(Rahmatullahi Alayhi) (died 852 A.H) states under the explanation of the above Hadith and others that "At the manifestation of Fitan (turmoil, chaos, and corruptions etc.) killing and murder will become rampant then Imam Mahdi will appear and cause peace to prevail. (Fath Al Bari Vol.13, Pg.20, Qadimi Kutub Khana)

Nabi (Sallahu Alayhi Wa Salam) is reported to have said; "If there remain only one day of this world Allah Ta'ala will lengthen that day and send a person from My progeny (who bring peace to the entire world) his name and his father's name will be the same as My name and My father's name. He will liberate the earth with fairness and justice as it was filled before with injustice and oppression".   (A'wn Al-Ma'bud Vol. 7, Pg. 346, Dar Al-Hadith)

Hafiz Ibnu Katheer (Rahmatullahi Alayhi) (died 774 A.H) states Imam Mahdi’s name will be the same as Nabi (Sallahu Alayhi Wa Salam's) name Muhammad and his father's name will be the same as Nabi (Sallahu Alayhi Wa Salam's) father's name Abdullah. (Tafseer Quran Al Azem, Vol.2, Pg.34, Dar Al-Marifah)

Allama Shams Al-Haqq Al-Azem Abadi (Rahmatullahi Alayhi) states in his commentary A'wn Al-M'abud that "At the end of time a person will appear who will belong to the progeny of Nabi (Sallahu Alayhi Wa Salam) he will assist the Deen of Allah Ta’ala and let justice prevail, the Muslims will accept him as their viceroy and follow his commands, his name will be Mahdi. The appearance of Dajjal and all other signs of Qiyamah will precede his manifestation, until Essa (Alayhi Al-Salam) will descend from the heavens, he will then kill Dajjal and Imam Mahdi will assist him."   (A'wn Al-Ma'bud Vol. 7, Pg. 341, Dar Al-Hadith)

Ummu Salamah (Radiallah Anha) reports that Nabi (Sallahu Alayhi Wa Salam) is reported to have said;…………. (Imam Mahdi) will arise from medina fleeing to Makka. The people of Makka will then pledge allegiance to him between Hajar Al-Aswad and Maqamu-Ibrahim (and accept him as their leader). At this time an army from Shaam will be sent to attack him but when they will be at Bayda, which is between Makkah and Madina, they will be swallowed into the ground. The people seeing this (the army being swallowed,  they will confirm him as being  their leader) thereafter the Abdals (those whom Allah Ta'ala will use to uplift his Deen) of Shaam and a group (A'saib) of people from will then approach him and pledge allegiance to him (Imam Mahdi) between Hajar Al-Aswad and Maqamu-Ibrahim. Mean while a person from the Quraysh belonging to the Kalbi tribe will then send an army to attack (Imam Mahdi) and his followers. His (Imam Mahdi's) army will defeat them…. Imam Mahdi will then live among the Muslims for a period of seven years, he will work and establish the sunnah of Nabi (Sallahu Alayhi Wa Salam) (among mankind) and Islam will again be universal. He will thereafter die and the Muslims will perform his janazah.

Question

Is it allowed to have any kind of relationship - like friendship/family contact / business partnerships- with Qaidiyanis?

Answer

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Assalaamu `alaykum waRahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

It is not permissible to sit, eat & drink or even keep any type of relationship (i.e. friendship, family or business partnership) with the Qadiyanis.  One may associate with Qadiyanis only with the intention of correcting their beliefs. [Fatawa Mahmoodiyyah V2/ pg130].

Question

In a qasidah burdah i recently went to they stood up in the middle for salaam to nabi Sallalawhualalayhiwasalaam Is this bidat and  Is there anything wrong in holding gas so that one can hold on to wudhu due to laziness.

Answer

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Assalaamu `alaykum waRahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

Respect and honour for Nabi ??? ???? ???? ? ??? is in following his sunnah. Standing up whilst reciting durood or salam is foreign to the teachings of Islam. Therefore, it will be considered as an innovation. If one stands up with the belief that Nabi ??? ???? ???? ? ??? is present, then this will be shirk.

Ahsanul Fatawa 1/363/4&383

It is undesirable to hold in gas in order to keep ones wudhu. It is also makrooh to perform salah whilst holding gas.

????? ??????? - (? 1 / ? 411)??? ????? ???????

????? ?? ???? ?? ?????? ??? ????? ???????? ??? ???? ????? ???? ????? ??? ??? ????? ????? ??? ???? ????? ??? ???? ???? ???? ?? ???? ????? ???? ??? ???? ??? ????? ???????? ????? ??? ??????? ???? ??????? ??? ?? ??? ????? ???? ?? ????? ??????? ????? ???? ??? ?????? ?? ??????? ???? ?? ??????

Consider the following Hadeeth:

?? ??? ????? ?? ???? ???? -??? ???? ???? ????- ??? « ??? ????? ??? ?? ???? ???? ?? ??????? ????? ?? ??????? ». ????? ??? ?? ???? ????. ??? « ????? ?????? ??? ??????? ????? ????? ??? ??????? ??????? ?????? ??? ?????? ????? ?????? » ???? ????

Nabi ??? ???? ???? ? ??? said: Should I not inform you of such deeds by virtue of which Allah Ta'ala forgives sins and raises ones ranks? Sahaba ??? ???? ???? replied Why not O messenger of Allah. Nabi ??? ???? ???? ? ??? replied: These acts are: making complete wudhu in unfavourable conditions, taking many steps to the masjid and waiting for one salah after the other.
