Q: 320 – Title: When should one recite Surah al Kahf?

Question

Below are my questions:

1.      With the mercy of Allah the Almighty I have been reading Surah Kahf on Fridays. I would like to know if it is preferred to recite it after sunrise on Friday or can one read it after Maghrib salah on Thursday?

2.      What is the status or benefit – if any- of crying at times other than when in the remembrance of Allah? Is it always best not to cry except when in the remembrance of Allah?

Answer

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-sal?mu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatull?hi wa-barak?tuh.

1.      There are many virtues regarding the recitation of Surah al Kahf on Fridays’.

“Whoever reads Surah al-Kahf on the day of Jumu’ah, will have a light that will shine from him from one Friday to the next.”

Abu Sa’eed al-Khudri, who said: “Whoever readsSoorat al-Kahf on the night of Jumu’ah, will have a light that will stretch between him and the Ancient House (the Ka’bah).”

(Sunan Al Daarami, Hadith: 3407, Darul Kitaabil Arabi)

It is preferable to recite Surah al Kahf after Maghrib on Thursday.

???? "????? ?????" ?? ????? ? ??????, ? ?????? ?? ??????? ?????? ????? ? ????? ?? ???????

(Raddul Muhtaar, Vol: 1, pg: 164, H.M Saeed Company)

2.      Crying is a natural instinct in a person through which a person vents his innermost feelings, happiness and sadness.

Even the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wasallam cried on certain instances:

???? ????? ??? ??? ????? ???? ???? ??? ???? ??? ???? ????? ???? ????? ?????? ?? ???? ????? ?????? ????? ?? ?? ????? ????? ???? ?????? ??????? ???? ??? : ?? ???? ????? ?? ????

???? : ??? ???? ????? ????? ????? ???? ??? ?? ????? ????? ???? ????? ????? ?? ????? ???????

(????? / ????- ??? ?????? ??? ?????)

Usama radhiallahu anhu narrates that a grandson of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam (that had passed away) was brought to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. He placed the baby in his lap and started weeping. So Hazrat Sa’d radhiallahu anhu exclaimed “Oh Prophet of Allah, what is this?” (Referring to the crying of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam). The Prophet of Allah replied: “This (crying) is a mercy that Allah has kept in who He wishes from his servants. And Allah only has mercy on his merciful servants”. (Bukhari/Muslim)

Crying is ‘mahmood’ (praiseworthy), not maqsood (not the objective). It is narrated in Bukhari and Muslim:

?? ??? ????? ??? ??? ??? ???? ???? ??? ???? ???? ? ??? :???? ????? ???? ?? ??? ??? ?? ?? ??? ??? ???? ???? ... ???? ??? ???? ????? ????? ?????... ???

Abu Hurairah radhiallahu anhu narrates that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wasallam said: There will be seven types of people that Allah will give shade on the day that there will be no shade beside his shade. A just ruler... and a person that remembers Allah until his eyes get filled with tears...

It is understood from the above quoted hadith that crying is desirable. However, if one is unable to cry, he will not be blameworthy as crying is not the ultimate goal. Attaining the closeness to Allah is.

Q: 319 – Title: Is utilising incantations permissible? Especially black beads worn around the wrist of babies?

Question

Assalaamu Alaykum wa Rahmatullaahi wa Barakatuhu,

Could I ask you to take a look at the following two fatwahs your have placed on your site and explain why they do not contain an invitation to shirk?

1:
my wife and I were blessed with a baby boy.We have been told that he should wear a bracelet of black beads to ward off evil.Is this an islamic practice?

Answer 13899    

February 07, 2005

Rasulullah [sallallaahu alayhi wasallam] said, ?(The effect of the) eye is Haqq (true).? When a person looks at something good or beautiful, he should say Maashaa Allah. That will avert the effect of a bad eye.

Generally, one does not know whose eyes has fallen and whether the person said MaashaaAllah or not to avoid the effect of the eyes. It is, therefore, permissible for one to take precaution and adopt some means to ward off the effect of the eyes. It is a common practise to make a black mark on the cheeks of the child or wear a band of black beads on the hand or neck to achieve this. This is a precautionary measure and permissible.

and Allah Ta'ala Knows Best

2.

My wife has given birth to a baby girl.Her relatives have put some black beads around her wrist, which they say will protect her from any evil and nazr. Is this Islamic, or just another custom ?

Jazakallah Khair

Nabi [sallallaahu alayhi wasallam] said, ?Nazar is true? The use of black beads on a child?s hand or black cotton is used for prevention of bad eyes.

and Allah Ta'ala Knows Best

Mufti Ebrahim Desai


In Leicester, UK where I live my wife has spoken to several Gujarati sisters about this practice of placing strings, charms etc containing beads to ward off evil eye and explained the need to use authentic du'a and Quran as Ruqyah not to rely on objects like these beads as this is a form of shirk like the shirk of the hindus who have similar practices of relying on charms as do all the Mushrikeen including those who opposed the message of Muhammad (saw).

Though there is some disagreement amongst the ulema regarding taweez, this is not the issue at stake here but a clear reliance upon the charms and amulets of Jahiliyyah not upon taweez containing the verses of the Quran or authentic du'a from Rasoolullaah (saw).

When this discussion has come up in Leicester and also online, some brothers and sisters have said it is the same as Taweez, others have pointed out Mufti Ibrahim from ask Imam has permitted it so I thought it better to ask you directly to retract your opinion and ask you to look at the following evidences which show its impermissability.

“I heard the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) say, ‘Spells (ruqyah), amulets and love-charms are shirk.” I said, “Why do you say this? By Allaah, my eye was weeping with a discharge and I kept going to So and so, the Jew, who did a spell for me. When he did the spell, it calmed down.” ‘Abd-Allaah said: “That was just the work of the Shaytaan who was picking it with his hand, and when (the Jew) uttered the spell, he stopped. All you needed to do was to say as the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) used to say: ‘Adhhib il-ba’s Rabb al-naas ishfi anta al-Shaafi laa shifaa’a illa shifaa’uka shifaa’an laa yughaadiru saqaman (Remove the harm, O Lord of mankind, and heal, You are the Healer. There is no healing but Your healing, a healing which leaves no disease behind.’”
Narrated by Abu Dawood, 3883; Ibn Maajah, 3530

And in another quite clear narration on this subject:

It was narrated from ‘Uqbah ibn ‘Aamir al-Juhani that a group came to the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) [to swear their allegiance (bay’ah) to him]. He accepted the bay’ah of nine of them but not of one of them. They said, “O Messenger of Allaah, you accepted the bay’ah of nine but not of this one.” He said, “He is wearing an amulet.” The man put his hand (in his shirt) and took it off, then he (the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him)) accepted his bay’ah. He said, ‘Whoever wears an amulet has committed shirk.”
Narrated by Ahmad, 16969)

Imraan bin Husayn (may Allaah be pleased with him) reported that: "the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) saw a man with a brass bracelet on his arm. He said; 'what is this?' He said, 'it is for protection against waahinah,' He said, 'Take it off, it will only increase your weakness, for if you died while it was on you, you would have have success."

Narrated by Ahmad, ibn Majah and al Tabarani.

There are quite a few other narrations, all calling to make the same point, that reliance upon such kufr shirki customs is not permissable, it is putting trust in other than Allaah and this indian custom of using black beads or black dots seems same as the shirk refuted in the above narrations, so if not could you please explain why it is not encouraging shirk?

If you do agree that Mufti Ibrahim has made a mistake then please retract them before anyone else is misguided.

Jazakallaahu khairan for your time in reading this, and replying if you get the chance Inshallaah.

Assalaamu Alaykum wa Rahmatullaahi wa Barakatuhu,

Answer

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-sal?mu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatull?hi wa-barak?tuh.

We refer to your observation on our fatwa regarding incantations and black beads.  At the outset we want to express our gratitude for engaging us further.

The Arabic term to what you are referring to is tamaa’im.  Tamaa’im are defined by Hafidh Ibn Hajar al-Asqalaani (may Allah have mercy upon him), the famous commentator of Sahih al-Bukhari as:

??????????? ????? ???????? ?????? ????? ???? ???????? ???????? ??? ???????? (??? ??????  ? 10 ? 221??? ??????)

“Beads or a string tied around the neck.” (Fath al-Bari 10/221 Dar al-Hadith)

To read a hadith without reading the commentaries of the muhaditheen is akin to taking medicine without reading the dosage instructions.

There are many authentic ahaadith pointing to the permissibility of using incantations in general:

Anas Ibn Malik (may Allah be pleased with him) said: “The Prophet (salutations and peace be upon him) allowed incantations against evil eye, poison, and wounds.”[i]

Jaabir (may Allah be pleased with him) reports that when the Prophet (salutations and peace be upon him) prohibited incantation, the  family of ‘Amr ibn Hazm  came to him and said, “We know an incantation which we used to recite for curing scorpion stings.” They recited the incantation for him, and he said, “I do not see anything wrong with it. Whoever among you is able to help his brother should do so.”[ii]

Awf ibn Maalik al-Ashja‘ee (may Allah be pleased with him) said, “We used to make incantations during the times of ignorance, so we said, ‘O Messenger of Allaah, what is your opinion on this matter?’ He replied, ‘Let me hear your incantations, for incantations which do not have shirk in them are fine.” [iii]

Imam Nawawi (may Allah have mercy on him) clearly states that using amulets is permissible and establishes the chapter titled ‘Chapter of the permissibility of using incantations as long as there is not shirk involved.’[iv]

However, Ibn Hajar pointed out that ‘Awf’s narration in which the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) said, “Incantations which do not have shirk in them are fine.”  This indicates that any ruqyah which leads to shirk is prohibited, and there is no way of knowing if incomprehensible ruqya (incantation) contain shirk or not. Therefore, such ruqya (incantation) are also prohibited as a precaution.[v]

As for tamaa’im, it is narrated from Amr ibn Shu’ayb, from his father, from his grandfather (Abdullah ibn Amr ibn al-Aas (Allah be pleased with them all), that the Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him & give him peace) used to teach them (the Sahabah) for fearful situations the following words:

“I seek refuge in Allah’s perfect words from His wrath, the evil of his servants, the whispered insinuations of devils, and that they come to me.”  Abdullah ibn Amr used to teach these words to his sons who had reached the age of reason, and used to write them and hang them upon those who had not reached the age of reason.[vi]

The practice of Abdullah ibn Amr (Allah be pleased with them) is further evidence of the permissibility of using beads (tamaa’im).

This clearly illustrates that using beads (tamaa’im) was a common practice.  The reason for the prohibition was the words which contained words of shirk.

If we were to class amulets and incantations an outright bid’ah and a practice of shirk, does that mean companions of the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) were committing shirk in the presence of the Prophet?

In addition, there are contradictory ahaadith in relation to amulets.  In view of the apparent inconsistencies in the ahaadith relating to amulets, the muhaditheen have harmonised the different ahaadith.

Ibn Hajar (may Allah have mercy on him) said, “The scholars are unanimous that ruqya is permissible if [the following] three conditions are met:

1)     Only the words of Allah (Quraan), names or attributes can be used.

2)     It must be in [comprehensible] Arabic or intelligible words in another language.

3)     Those taking part must believe that the incantation cannot have an independent effect, but it is Allah who causes it to have effect.”[vii]

The ahaadith which render the usage of amulets as shirk is due to the corrupt belief that amulets had the innate capacity to cause benefit and cause harm. [viii]

You quoted the hadith narrated by Imam Abu Dawud and Ibn Majah :

???? ?????? ??????? ????? ???????? ??????? ??????? ?????? ??????? ???????? ????????? ??????? ????? ???????? ?????????????? ????????????? ?????? ??????? ?????? ???? ??????? ????? ????????? ?????? ??????? ??????? ???????? ???????? ?????????? ????? ??????? ????????????? ?????????? ??????? ???????? ???????? ??????? ?????? ??????? ???????? ????? ?????? ???????????? ????? ??????????? ???????? ??????? ???????? ????? ??????? ???????? ????? ????????? ???? ???????? ????? ????? ??????? ??????? ?????? ??????? ???????? ????????? ??????? ???????? ????????? ????? ???????? ????? ?????? ????????? ??? ??????? ?????? ????????? ??????? ??? ????????? ???????[ix]

Ibn Hajar (may Allah have mercy on him) states whilst commentating on this hadith:

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

“It has only been classed as shirk because they intended to avert harm and acquire benefit from other than Allah.  Those incantations which are composed of the names of Allah and His Word will be excluded from this statement.  The usage of such incantations have been established in the ahaadith.”[x]

You made a reference to the hadith narrated by Imam Ahmed as follows:

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

Although this hadith has been classed as weak, it has been narrated by many other scholars.  Haakim narrates it in his Mustadrak, al-Bayhaqi in his al-Kubraa and at-Tabraani in his al-kabeer.  The great muhaddith Allamah al-Manaawi comments on the hadith as follows after narrating two ahaadith of the same nature:

(?????) ??? ??? ??? ????? : ??? ?? ??? ?? ??? ????? ??? ???? ????? ?? ??? ??? ???? ????? ??? ?? ??? ??? ???? ??? ??? ??? ???? ???? ??? ?????? ??????? ??????? ?????[xi]

The purport of this hadith and that which has been narrated before is to tie that which has no portion of the Quraan and the like thereof.  As for that which has the mention of Allah in it, there is not a prohibition from using that.  It has been made permissible to seek the blessings of Allah and to seek the refuge of Almighty Allah.

The final hadith you quoted was:

???? ????????? ???? ??????????? ????? ?????????? ?????? ??????? ???????? ????????? ????? ??????? ??? ?????? ???????? ???? ?????? ??????? ??? ?????? ??????????? ????? ?????? ???? ???????????? ????? ?????????? ?????????? ??? ????????? ?????? ??????? (???? ???? ???? ????)

The famous commentator Allamah Sindhi remarks on this hadith with the following:

??? ??????????? ??????????? ????? ??????? ??? ?????????? ????? ?????? ??????? ????????? ??????? ??????? ????? ??????? ??? ???????? ?????????? ??????? ???????? ???? ???????? ??? ?????? ????? ????? ??????????? ?????? ??????? ????????? ???? ????????? ?????????? ??????? ??????? ????????? ???????? ????????? ????? ???????? ????????? ???? ???????? ????????? ?????? ??? ??????? ??????????? ??????????? ??????? [xii]

“al-waahinah is pain experienced in the arm.  People would seek refuge from the pain by using amulets.  The Prophet (salutations and peace be upon him) forbade his companion from using this because he had the belief that the amulet would grant him recovery. (Paraphrased)

The issue in reference is not of afdhaliyyah (more virtuous.  It is of mubah (permissibility).  While it is clear from the above quotations that using beads to ward of evil with prescribed conditions is permissible.  Nothing is equivalent to supplications mentioned in the Quran and Ahaadith.[xiii]

There are two extremes; one group over indulges in the usage of amulets.  Another group erroneously classes everything as shirk and bid’ah.  We need to have moderation and be from those who don’t rely on amulets but yet acknowledge their permissibility based on academic quotations and references.

Shari’ah is based on academics and not on emotions.

Q: 317 – Title: What will be the fate of those ancient people who haven't received the message of a Prophet, how will they be judged on the day of judgment?

Question

"1. What will be the fate of those ancient people (as Incas, Maya, Aztecs in South America) who haven't received the message of a Prophet, how will they be judged on the day of judgment?
Or was a Prophet sent also to them?
2. What will be the fate of those people who were born after the revelation of the Holy Qur'an, but lived in far away places which were (are) not reached by the message of Islam? For example the general people in Europe during the "middle age": they were very ignorant about Islam and only fed up with erroneous and deceitful information about Islam by their popes and christian kings, "forced" by them to belief in wrong things, and living isolated from broader cultural phenomena and thus without proper access to knowledge about Islam: what will their fate in the afterlife be?
3. What will be the fate of non-Muslim children (i.e. born to non-Muslim parents and died before reaching the puberty, will they be in Jannah on Jahannam? And what will be their situation in the qabr?".

Answer

Assal?mu `alaikum Warahmatull?hi Wabrakatuh,

1.) The basic belief in Tauh?d (the oneness of Allah) did exist in the ancient people as a result of the efforts made my either by the Messengers of Allah or through their deputies and students.

As a result, no region or people were left unvisited since either directly (through the Messengers) or indirectly (through their students and learned men) the prophetic light was carried to every corner of the world. [i] [ii]

Allah mentions in the Quran:

“And for every people there is a messenger...”

(Surah Yunus: 47)

“...And for every people there is a guide.”

(Surah Al-Ra'd: 7)

“And we did raise a messenger among every people, with the message,

'Worship Allah and stay away from the Rebel...' ”

(Surah Al-Nahl: 36)

“And there is no group of people among whom there has not been a warner”

(Surah Al-Fatir: 24)

2. Allah is the Most Just, the Most Merciful, and the Wisest and Best of Judges.

Allah does not enter anyone into Hellfire unless the proof is established against them and they become deserving of the punishment of the Fire. [iii]

He says:

“...And it is not Our way to punish (anyone) unless We send a Messenger.”

(Surah Al-Isr?: 15)

Thus, those that lived in far away places and do not receive the message of Islam will be saved as long as they believed in the Oneness of Allah. This is also the view of Imam Abu Hanifah.[iv]

As for those whom the message of Islam did reach but it was rife with false and misleading accounts then they, by the will of Allah will be covered by His Mercy and forgiven as long as they believed in Allah and did not associate anyone with Him such as the Ahl-ul-Kit?b (People of the Book).This is because they are like those who never heard of Rasulullah (salallahu alayhi wa sallam) since they did not hear the true account but lies and propaganda which were opposite to the true character of our Prophet (salallahu alahi wa sallam). Thus, this group is like those who never heard of the Prophet (salallahu alayhi wa sallam) and will Insha-Allah also be excused since the information they received was incorrect and full of lies.[v]

3.) Those non-Muslim children that died before attaining the age of maturity have been mentioned by some commentators of the Quran as being from amongst the Ash?b al-'Ar?f (the people of the Heights). The Ash?b al-'Ar?fare those whose good and bad deeds are equal such as in the case of these non-Muslim children who did not have the capability to perform good or bad deeds conscientiously. This view has been recorded by Imam Baghawi (rahmataullahi alayhi) in his tafs?r. The Ash?b al-'Ar?fstand delivered from the Hellfire but have not entered Paradise yet, which they eventually will through the intercession of Rasulullah (salallahu alayhi wa sallam).[vi] [vii]

The focus of our own lives should be on how our end will be, and what efforts we can make to please Allah in the time we have remaining on this Earth. Those that come before us and after us will be judged and rewarded or punished accordingly by Allah, who is the Most-Just. He says:

“Those are a people who have passed away. For them what they earned, and for you

what your earned. And you shall not be questioned as to what they have been doing.”

(Surah Al-Baqarah: 141)

And Allah knows best.

Answer

Assal?mu `alaikum Warahmatull?hi Wabrakatuh,

It is mentioned in a hadith,
'When Ramadhan comes, the gates of paradise are opened, the gates of hellfire are locked and the devils are shackled.' (Bukhari)

We can deduce from this Hadith that the one who passes away in Ramadhan, will be safeguarded from punishment by the grace of almighty Allah. 
(fatawa mahmudiyyah 1/630) (ahsanul fatawa 4/208)

Imam Ahmed narrates in his compilation of Hadith that the messenger of Allah (sallahu alaihi wasallam) said,
'whoever professes La ilaha illah (there is no god besides Allah) seeking the pleasure of Allah and happens to pass away in that state, he will enter paradise. Whoever fasts a day seeking the pleasure of Allah and happens to pass away in that state, he will enter paradise.'

A person who passes away in the state of fasting will enter paradise.  (fatawa mahmudiyyah 1/631)

With regards to meeting one's predecessors after death,if one is amongst the fortunate ones and successfully answers the questioning in the grave, he will get to meet whom he wants.
(fatawa mahmudiyyah 1/612)

A Hadith states that when a person passes away, he meets the souls of the believers and discusses the affairs of the living.
(Nasai Hadith no.1834)

Question

I know taking oath from other than Allah is haram.

1) does that include Quran?

2) I heard it is shirk to take oath other than allah. My parent take oath by my sibling name and other than allah name. My mom say she doesn't think Allah is lower than these name. She know Allah is greatest. Is she's still a kaafir?

She say there is nothing wrong with it. What to do if she doesn't care about my advice after explaing that it is haram?

Answer

Assal?mu `alaikum Warahmatull?hi Wabrakatuh,

It is not permissible to take an oath on anything besides All?h Ta`?l? and His sif?t (qualities and attributes). If a person takes an oath on the Qur?n, the oath will be valid even though it is not permissible to take an oath on the Qur?n.

Taking oaths on other people, for example on one’s children, is extremely dangerous.

You should explain to your mother in a kind and loving manner the seriousness of the matter. If she does not agree with you, you should keep silent and continue making du`? for her.
