Q: 335 ? Title: What effect does the numbering system have?

Question

I am confused about the numbering system. I had an incident when I got married when my wife got scared of something when she was alone at home at around Fajar time. Someone told us that there is a problem with the house spiritually so move to a diffferent house and try to get a house with a sum = odd numbers (1, 3, 5, 7, 9).

The house we were staying in had an even number 614 (I think). After this we have moved a couple of times and lived in houses whose numbers calculate as odd and faced no problems. Now I want to move to a new house and want to clarify my concept. Is there anything wrong with houses with sum of even numbers or is it my superstition.

Assalam o Alaikum

Answer

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

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

As Muslims, we place our trust in Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta?ala) in all our affairs. Whatever happens in this World occurs with the will (Taqdeer) of Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta?ala).One should never become despondent nor give way to baseless suspicions.

Believing in the effectiveness of even numbers has no basis in Islam. Believing in the numbering system being the cause of harm is a baseless superstition. One should not pay any attention to such baseless superstitions.

Superstitions existed in the Pre- Islamic era of Jaahiliyyah (ignorance). Rasulullah (Sallalahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) abolished all such superstitions as baseless and having no place in Islam.

Read the Aayatul Kursi for protecting ones home against all type of calamities and difficulties.

Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) said:

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

Translation: ?When you recline to your resting place, read Aayatul Kursi for verily; Allah remains as a guardian over such a person? (Tafseer Ibn Katheer, 281/1, Darul Fikr)

The Aayatul Kursi is as follows:

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

Translation: Allah is He besides Whom there is no god, the Everliving, the Self-subsisting by Whom all subsist; slumber does not overtake Him nor sleep; whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth is His; who is he that can intercede with Him but by His permission? He knows what is before them and what is behind them, and they cannot comprehend anything out of His knowledge except what He pleases, His knowledge (throne) extends over the heavens and the earth, and the preservation of them both tires Him not, and He is the Most High, the Great.

(Surah Al ? Baqarah, 2/255)

Adopt all precautionary measures to safeguard ones interests and thereafter hand all ones affairs to Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta?ala).

And Allah knows best.

Q: 334 ? Title: Did Rasullullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam act according to his own will or by Allah Ta'ala's will?

Question

Does Rasullullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam act according to his own will or by Allah?s Subhanahu Wa Ta?al??s will? If there is a proof in the Quran or the Hadith, can you please give me that as well?

Answer

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

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

The speech and conduct of Rasullullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam is according to the orders of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta?al?. Allah mentions in the Quran:

{????? ???????? ???? ???????? (3) ???? ???? ?????? ?????? ??????} [?????: 3? 4]

?Nor does he speak from (his own) desire. It is not but a revelation revealed (to him).? [1] (Najm 3-4)

This verse refers to the speech of Rasullullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam. However, it is more general and includes even the conduct of Rasullullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam. A Hadith on the authority of Sa?d Ibn Hish?m Radiallahu Ta?al? Anhu states:

???? ?????? ???? ????????..??????: ??? ????? ?????????????? ,??????????? ???? ?????? ??????? ??????? ?????? ????? ???????? ?????????? ???????: ????????? ???????? ??????????? ??????? ?????? ??????? ??????? ?????? ????? ???????? ????????? ????? ??????????? (??? ??? ???? (2/ 40)

?I asked, O Mother of all believers, relate to me the characteristics of Rasullullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam. She replied, ?Haven?t you read the Quran? Verily the characteristics of Rasullullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam is the Qur?n.? (Sunan Abi Dawood 2/40)

If Rasullullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam made Ijtih?d on any issue which was incorrect, it would immediately be rectified through a revelation so that the error does not persist. There are examples of this in the Quran. If his Ijtih?d was correct, then no Wahy would be revealed to amend it indicating the acceptance of his Ijtih?d.

And Allah Ta??la Knows Best

Q: 333 ? Title: What are the consequences of saying, ?I don?t believe in Allah??

Question

Assalamu'alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu my question is that if someone says something like "I don't believe in Allah" then what are the consequences for that? That person falls out of the folds of Islam or no? What should they do to make up for saying such a statement?

Answer

Belief in Allah is a fundamental for the validity of one?s im?n.? To believe otherwise constitutes to kufr.? If a Muslim is married and he says he does not believe in Allah, his nik?h will be invalidated.? If he continues living with his ex-spouse, he will be sinful.? If he has conjugal relations with her, that will be considered as zina (adultery). He has no value to his name.? He will not be allowed to marry anyone, whether she is a Muslim, non-Muslim or anyone. If his wife becomes pregnant after that time, the child will not be attributed to him.? Anything he slaughters will be deemed har?m.? Any game he hunts will be impermissible.[1] Those around him will disown him.[2] He will not be entitled to zak?t funds or sadaqah al-fitr no matter how desperate he maybe.? If he dies, he will not be washed or shrouded, nor will he be deserving of the ritual wash (ghusl).[3] It will not be permissible to attend his funeral procession.[4] His estate will not be distributed amongst his family.? He will be considered as an outcast.? From the moment he dies, he will be entertained with eternal punishment.? Finally, he will be hurled into the pit of hell to burn for time without end.

The only way to safeguard himself from the doom mentioned above is to enter the fort of Islam once again,[5] by renewing his im?n and bringing firm faith in the recognition and oneness of Allah.? If he is married, he should renew his nik?h.? Make a firm resolve never to utter such a statement in the future.? A believer ought to be ultra sensitive to his im?n in Allah.? He can afford losing everything but his im?n.? He lives with im?n and dies with im?n.

Q: 331 ? Title: Proof for the Prophet being alive in the grave, what is Imam Bukhari?s/Muslim?s maslak?

Question

Asalamualaikum Warahmatulahi Wabarakatu 1)I told My Friend That Prophet Saw is Alive in his grave. My Friend Wants The Proof From Quran & Authentic For The Nabi Sallalahu Alahi wasalam Being Alive in his Blessed Grave.Please Provide The Proof From Quran & Authentic hadees. Jazak Allahu Khairan Kaseeran. 2)I heard that Imam Bukhari ra & Imam Muslim ra are the Muqallid & Followers Of Imam Shafi ra. Is this is true.....If true please explain with the proof. Jazak Allahu Khairan Kaseeran

Answer

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

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

1) The bodies of the Prophets are preserved and remain intact in the grave. This is mentioned by the Prophet Sall?hu Alayhi Wasallam himself and is authentically proven. The Prophets are also alive in their graves.

We do not know the reality and exact nature of the life of the Prophets alayhis sal?m in their graves. However, it is mentioned in the Hadith that when a person comes to visit the Prophet Sall?hu Alayhi Wasallam and greets Rasulullah Sall?hu Alayhi Wasallam, he (Rasulullah) hears the greeting and also replies to the greeting. When a person sends greetings to Rasulullah Sall?hu Alayhi Wasallam from far, the angels carry that Sal?ms and convey it to Rasulullah Sall?hu Alayhi Wasallam.[1]

For further details (proof) please refer to the link below prepared by Mufti Ebrahim Desai Sahib:

http://www.central-mosque.com/fiqh/alive.htm

2) Im?m Muslim was not an M?liki nor a Hanafi nor a Shafi. Compilation of the Sahih Muslim shows that he was more inclined towards the Shaf? School of thought.[2]

Various scholars have different opinion about Im?m Bukhari Rahmatulllah ?alayh?s mazhab, some are mentioned hereunder:

1) According to ibn Taimiyyah (R.A), Im?m Bukhari Rahmatulllah ?alayh was a mujtahid and an independent Im?m.

2) Allama Taqi?uddeen Subki has regarded him as a Shafi? because he was the student of Humaidi, who was a Shafi?. This conclusion is not correct because then Im?m Bukhari Rahmatulllah ?alayh should be regarded as a Hanafi in view of Ish?q ibn R?hway, Im?m Bukhari Rahmatulllah ?alayh?s Teacher, being a student of Abdullah Ibn Mub?rak Rahmatulllah ?alayh and Abdullah Ibn Mub?rak Rahmatulllah ?alayh was a Hanafi.

3) Ibn Qayym (R.A.) says Im?m Bukhari Rahmatulllah ?alayh, Muslim and Abu Dawood were strong followers of Im?m Ahmed ibn Hambal.

After studing and closely looking at Im?m Bukhari Rahmatulllah ?alayh, pone will realize that Im?m Bukhari Rahmatulllah ?alayh did not follow any one Im?m, he has his independent views on many issues, therefore Allama Anwar Shah Kashmiri (R.A.) and Sheikh Zakaria(R.A.) have the same view as that of Allamah Taimiyyah that Im?m Bukhari Rahmatulllah ?alayh is a mujtahid.

Muhaddise-Kabir Wa Sheikh-u- Ulam? Hadhrat Moulana Fazlur Rahman Sahib D?mat Barak?tuhum, Shaikul Hadith of Darul Uloom Azaadville is of the opinion that Im?m Bukhari Rahmatulllah ?alayh?s Usools (fundamental principles) are not known, it is difficult to regard him as an independent Im?m and mujtahid.

Hadhrat Mufti Ebrahim Desai Sahib?s view is that not knowing the Usool of any Im?m is not the criteria to disqualify him from being a mujtahid, just as there were many other mujtahids other than the famous and commonly known four Im?ms. Their Usool are not known, but they were mujtahids or else it would mean that there were only four mujtahids in this Ummat. Yes, one may say that since the Usools of Im?m Bukhari Rahmatulllah ?alayh are not known, he cannot be followed, just as we cannot follow for eg. Sufyan Sawri, Sufyan Uyaina, etc.[3]
