Establishing Salaat

“Establish Salaat and do not be like the mushrikeen.” (Surah Room, 31)

This is a portion of an Aayat. In this Aayat Allah Jalla Shaanuhu Wa Amma Nawaaluhu (Sublime is His greatness and all-encompassing is His bounty) instructs something and prohibits something else. I shall speak on what has been instructed and what has been prohibited. Both, the instruction and the prohibition are connected. From this something major is educed which will serve as a course of action and bearing it in mind will be extremely beneficial for all A’maal (deeds and actions). This is the gist of what I am going to speak on today.

Allah Ta’ala says:

“Establish Salaat and do not be like the mushrikeen.”

‘Establish’ means to correctly and perfectly discharge with punctuality. It is also interpreted as: observe the rights and conditions of Namaaz fully. Obviously something is only ‘correct’ when all its parts are in order and in proper proportion. If this is not the case then it cannot be called ‘correct’.

For example, when cooking food,

101. If the beloved instructs the lover to come at two ‘o clock at night will the lover accept without question or will he start asking questions about the logic and reason of coming at that time?

102. Accepting means to put into practice; to submit by carrying out (something).

103. Islam means: to bow down one’s head in submission. When one’s belief and conviction are of this grade then why is there a delay in making one’s Islaah!

104. O wonderful, Taalib-e-Islaah, Taalib-e-Ilm, you are still not yet eager to offer five times Salaat with Jamaat and Takbeer-e-Ula!

105. You have read that, “Everyone will attain ranks in proportion to his actions,” then you studied Mishkaat Shareef and the ten Hadeeth works in Dorah Shareef (the final year in the Aalim Course) yet you are still not prompt with five times Salaat with consideration for Takbeer-e-Ula!

Q. I am a dental student and am currently in a predicament. I started studying dentistry and my parents had the means to pay for my studies but now I find myself in my 3rd year of study and my parents can’t afford it. I know interest-based loans are haraam, but is there any alternative solution to my problem that is halaal?

A. An interest-bearing loan is haraam. The circumstance of secular studies or even Deeni studies does not make permissible paying interest. The objective of secular study is to establish a means of earning one’s rizq. Such means may not be acquired in a haraam way. Rizq is predetermined and sealed. We are allowed to pursue our Rizq in only halaal ways.

If an interest-free loan cannot be obtained from some Muslims, and if there is no one prepared to grant a bursary, then the student has to abandon his studies for the present. If the only way in which a business could be commenced is by acquiring a bank-loan, then it will not be permissible to initiate the business. The person will have to rather go and cut grass, wash cars or do something else for his livelihood. But, he may not acquire an interest-bearing loan and destroy his Aakhirat by courting the wrath of Allah Ta’ala.

Q. I would like to know if the following is correct given that Nabi (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) is mentioned in it:

“Shaykh Bin Baaz (may Allaah have mercy on him) was asked about a man whose wife treats him badly and insults him, so he divorced her at a moment of anger. He replied:

‘If you uttered the words of divorce at a moment of intense anger and without realizing it, and you could not control yourself, because of her bad words and insults, etc., and you did that at a moment of intense anger and without realizing it, and she acknowledges that, or you have a witness of good character, then divorce has not taken place, because the shar’i evidence indicates that divorce does not take place if the words are spoken at a moment of intense anger – and if it is accompanied by not realizing what is happening then the ruling applies even more so.

For example, Ahmad, Abu Dawood and Ibn Maajah narrated from ‘Aa’ishah (may Allaah be pleased with her) that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “There is no divorce and no manumission in the event of ighlaaq.” The majority of scholars said that ighlaaq means compulsion or anger, i.e., intense anger. For his anger made him unaware of what he was saying, so he is like one who is unconscious, insane or drunk, because of the intensity of his anger. So divorce does not take place in this instance. If he does not realize what he is doing and cannot control his words or actions because of the intensity of his anger, then divorce does not take place.”

My husband explained his state of mind at the time of giving talaaq to me. Please could you reply to mє as I'm sitting in iddat αη∂ my husband has explained to mє his state of mind which I was unaware of.

A. Bin Baaz’s understanding of the mas’alah is defective. No one issues Talaaq when in the state of love. Talaaq is almost always issued in the state of anger. Merely saying ‘intense anger’ is extremely ambiguous and incorrect.

The Fuqaha have clarified that the anger should be tantamount to insanity. The example of a man banging his head against a wall or setting himself on fire or tearing off his clothes and running naked outside and similar extreme cases of ill-conduct will it be said that he had no control over his brains, and that he ranted like a madman.

But ‘intense anger’ which will quickly dissipate if a police officer comes to arrest him or if he is able to control the anger in the presence of others, but vents it only on his wife and children, is not the near-insanity anger which exonerates a man of his conduct and utterances.

Q. Please advise; I am a divorced lady with twin boys aged 11. There is a man interested in marriage with 2 daughters; aged 16 and 12. Their mum has passed away. We have fallen in love. Our kids are happy and we would like to make nikaah, Insha-Allah. Is this permissible? Will our kids be able to all live together with us?

A. Marriage in this case though permissible, however it is fraught with danger to the children. There is almost certainty that there will be haraam contact between the boys and girls. There will be too many opportunities to commit zina. In view of this grave danger you should not get married to him. And Allah Ta’ala knows best.

Problems with live streaming ???


Sowtul Imaan is our web streaming  service.       Listen to the live audio streaming of bayaans from anywhere on the globe. To listen to Live bayaans via your computer or mobile phone, Logon to the Jamiatul Ulama Gauteng Website ( ).for bayaan schedules, on your pc. Alternatively live stream from your mobile device by   logging in to:    http:// mobile

As long as you have an internet connection you will be able to live stream the bayaans.

Below are few requirements to assist with Bayaan live streaming. You will require enough dedicated Internet bandwidth to receive the stream.

  • Furthermore please keep in mind there are a few different service providers e.g. MTN, Cell C, Vodacom etc. and also different ways of connecting to the internet e.g. 3G, Wi-Fi and ADSL so you may experience different quality issues and may encounter delays introduced by congestion on the Internet. Unfortunately, there is not much that can be done to rectify this problem.

Always check your volume setting before trying to access the stream.

A few common problems that you may encounter

Buffering: Buffering is when your player stutters/buffers a few seconds of the stream before playing it, this is to avoid interruptions of the live stream when bandwidth instabilities occurs on your used Internet connection. If you lose the streaming connection, the media player will buffer for a few seconds before re-connecting.

No audio: If the stream plays but there is no audio, check the media player and soundcard’s volume (check that it is not muted).                    Nothing happens when clicking on the link: Most likely it’s because you have a pop-up blocker installed. Please allow pop ups / temporary allow pop ups in your browser.                                    

Getting disconnected: In the event while listening to the bayaan you are disconnected, please try reconnecting after a minute or so there could be a possibility the streaming website experiences a glitch or some other issue.
