Sending a person to Buy

You asked a person to go and purchase a certain goat from a certain person for R200. This wakeel cannot go and purchase that goat at that price for himself. In other words, when you ask the wakeel to purchase something specifically for you, it is not permissible for him to purchase that very item for himself. However, if he purchases it at a price more than what you had specified, it will be permissible for him to purchase it for himself. But if you did not specify any price, it will in no way be permissible for him to purchase it for himself.

You did not specify any particular goat. You merely asked him to purchase a goat for you. It will be permissible for him to purchase a goat for himself as well. He can purchase whichever one he wishes to purchase for himself, and whichever one he wishes for you. If he purchases it with the intention that he is purchasing it for himself, it will be his. If he purchases it with the intention that he is purchasing it for you, it will be yours. And if he purchases it with your money, it will be yours irrespective of what intention he makes when purchasing it.

He purchased a goat for you. However, before he could give it to you, it died or got stolen. In such a case, you will have to give him the money for that goat. If you tell him that he had purchased that goat for himself, then your money will be lost if you had already given him the money. But if you hadn't given him the money and he comes to you now to ask for the money, then if you are able to take an oath that he had purchased the goat for himself, then his goat will be lost. And if you are unable to take an oath, you will have to accept his word.

Equality in Lineage PDF Print E-mail
Behshti Zewar - Etiquette

Equality in Lineage

Equality in lineage is that the Shaykh, Sayyid, Ansari, and ‘Alawi are all equal to each other. In other words, although the status of a Sayyid is more than the others, if the daughter of a Sayyid marries a Shaykh boy; it will not be said that she did not marry someone who is of her family relations. Instead, it will also be regarded as if she has married one of her relatives.

In matters of lineage, the lineage of the father is considered and not the mother. If the father is a Sayyid, the son is also a Sayyid; and if the father is a Shaykh, the son is also a Shaykh - irrespective of what the mother may be. If a Sayyid marries a woman who is not a Sayyid, their son will be regarded as a Sayyid. This son will be equal in status to all other Sayyids. Although the son whose father and mother are both from a noble family is respected more, according to the Shariah they will all be regarded as relatives or of the same social standing.

The Moghuls and Pathans are regarded as one nation and are not of the same class as that of the Sayyids and Shaykhs. If the daughter of a Sayyid or Shaykh gets married with one of them, it will be said that she married someone who is of a lower social standing than her.



Fadhlul Haq, who was the minister of Bengal and Calcutta on behalf of the Muslim League, once needed to travel from Delhi to Calcutta. To make the journey, he decided to buy a first-class train ticket.

After boarding the train, he asked his attendant “Where is my Quraan Majeed? Is it aboard the train?” The attendant replied, “All the luggage has not yet been loaded into the carriage, and the box in which we packed the Quraan Majeed still needs to be loaded. I will bring it immediately.” When he heard this, Fadhlul Haq immediately said, “I have told you, on multiple occasions, to ensure that the Quraan Majeed comes into the carriage first. Unload whatever luggage has already been loaded, we will take the next train and ensure that the Quraan Majeed goes into the carriage first.” Saying this, Fadhlul Haq exited the carriage and left the train.

On seeing Fadhlul Haq exit the carriage, some Hindus who were already seated inside began to laugh in mockery and said, “How strange! He left the train because his Quraan did not come first!”

Later on as the train Fadhlul Haq had abandoned neared Calcutta, the entire first-class carriage exploded. It turned out that some Hindus who were the enemies of Fadhlul Haq, had planted a bomb under the first-class carriage in the hope of killing him. When the carriage exploded, most of the people in it were killed and the few survivors were critically injured. On learning of the fate of the first-class carriage which he had abandoned, Fadhlul Haq said, “The Hindus wish to kill me. They should bear in mind that the Quraan Majeed always remains with me and nothing can thus harm me.”

The few Hindus who survived the explosion later on wrote in an article, “When Fadhlul Haq exited the carriage, we were initially laughing. However, we now know that he was fortunate to have exited and we know that the Quraan Majeed saved him.” (Quraan ke Hayrat Angez Waaqi‘aat pg. 322)

Hafsah radiyallahu ‘anha PDF Print E-mail
Behshti Zewar - Beneficial Stories

Hafsah radiyallahu ‘anha

She is the wife of Rasulullah sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam and the daughter of ‘Umar radiyallahu ‘anhu. On one occasion, Rasulullah sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam had issued one divorce to her. Thereafter, upon the instruction of Jibra’eel he revoked this divorce. Jibra’eel had spoken in her favour in the following way: "You should revoke the divorce which you issued to her because she fasts abundantly, engages in a lot of ‘ibadah at night, and she will be your wife in jannah." She had made a bequest to her brother ‘Abdullah bin ‘Umar to give a certain amount of her wealth in charity. She had also made a plot of land waqf for Allah Ta’ala. She had also made a bequest in this regard. Her first husband’s name was Khunays bin Hudhafah.

Lesson: Look at the barakah of piety that Allah Ta’ala defended her and sent Jibra’eel to speak on her behalf in order to have her divorce revoked. Look at her generosity - how she made arrangements for charity in the name of Allah and also made a plot of land waqf for Allah Ta’ala. O women! Adopt piety and remove love and greed for wealth from the heart.

Behshti Zewar - Fiqah


[Purifying with dust or sand where water is not available]

If someone is in a jungle and does not know where water could be found, nor is there anyone from whom he could find out, then in such a case he should make tayammum.

But if he found someone who pointed out water within 1.6 kilometres and he is confident that this person is speaking the truth, or the person himself feels confident of finding water within 1.6 kilometres - then it will be necessary to search for water in such a way that it does not cause any harm or inconvenience to him or to his fellow companions. It is not permissible to make tayammum without searching for water. If one is definite that there is water within 1.6 kilometres, it will be obligatory to bring the water.

If water is available, but it is beyond 1.6 kilometres, it is not obligatory to go for the water. It will be sufficient to make tayammum.

If a person is about 1.6 kilometres from an inhabited area and water cannot be found before that, it will still be permissible to make tayammum. This is irrespective of whether one is a musaafir (traveller) or just came out for a short distance.

If one found a well on the way, but there is no bucket or rope to draw the water nor is there anyone from whom he can ask, even then tayammum will be permissible.

The harms of over-eating and its cure

Many sins are committed on account of over-filling the stomach. There are several factors which have to be taken into consideration:

Do not become too accustomed to eating sumptuous meals.

Safeguard yourself from haram sustenance.

Do not fill your stomach beyond its limit. Instead, set aside a bit of hunger which equals a few morsels. There are many benefits in this:

One of them is that the person's heart remains pure whereby he recognizes the bounties of Allah. This results in his developing a love for Allah.
