Tasawwuf - Tasawwuf

Allah Ta’ala revealed to Nabi Musa (alayhis salaam): “O Musa! There are some such servants if they ask Me for the entire Jannat, I shall award it to them. But if they ask me from something of the world, I shall deny it to them. This denial is not because they are despised by Me, but I intend to pile up treasures for them in Jannat, and I save them from this world in the way a shepherd saves his sheep from the wolf.”

Fiqh and Masaail - Fasting


Some people who desire to recite the Qur’aan are troubled with the thought that they cannot master the art of reciting the Qur’aan. They falter in their recitation. Some even curtail their recitation due to this thought; thinking that such a Tilaawat is of no use. They should understand that in spite of reading with difficulty the reward is twofold.

They should not, however, think that they have superseded those who recite the Qur’aan with clarity. The one thawaab of the latter could be greater than the twofold reward of the former. Two silver coins are greater in number than one gold coin, but in value the one gold coin is greater.

Those who cannot recite the Qur’aan at all can derive thawaab by merely listening to the recitation of the Qur’aan. They are not deprived of thawaab, although they may not gain the amount of reward the reciter gets. Thus, the Qur’aan Majeed states:

Sayings of Hazrat Moulana Maseehullah Khan Saheb
Saturday, 19 July 2014 06:56

131. In former times there wasn’t this delay (in Islaah). Now even glaring wrongs are not corrected.

132. Someone wishes to reach a certain place but does not know the way. He will continuously ask till he reaches his destination. Similarly, if the Taalib-e-Haq wants to reach his destination he will continue to ask the way.

133. If the intention (of the mureed) was pure concern for the Aakhirat and honest Islaah then there would be no question of delay.

134. If the delay (in the Islaah of the mureed) carries on then it appears that something is fishy; his sincerity and honesty are contaminated.

135. The gaze is not on the Aakhirat and hence there are shortcomings in A’maal.

Respect for Deeni Kitaabs pt2

Hazrat Moulana Ashraf 'Ali Thaanwi (rahmatullahi 'alaihi) was once asked regarding placing deeni kitaabs in a bathroom and toilet that was built but not yet used. Hazrat (rahmatullahi 'alaihi) replied that, apparently this does not seem to be correct. Although the bathroom and toilet have thus far not been used at all, however since they have been built for the purpose of one relieving oneself and bathing, it is against the dictates of adab (etiquette) to place deeni kitaabs therein. Upon hearing this answer, an educated person who was present at that time enquired, “Doesn’t the impermissibility apply to when the bathroom and toilet are already in use?” Hazrat (rahmatullahi 'alaihi) said that the Jurist have used the words المعد لذلك (i.e. the Quraan, hadeeth or deeni kitaabs should not be taken to any place that has been designed and prepared for such a purpose). By pondering over the statement of the Jurist, one understands that the ruling will relate to a place that has been built for this purpose, irrespective of whether people have commenced using it or not. Moulana further explained that just as it is impermissible for one to place a pair of new shoes on a deeni kitaab, though one had not yet began using it, similarly will be the ruling in this case. Hazrat (rahmatullahi 'alaihi) then mentioned that etiquette revolves around the general practice of society. One should see whether something is regarded as etiquette in society or not.

Q. I would like to find out what the correct spelling is for Ramadaan. I have seen Ramadaan time tables where Ramadaan is spelt “Ramadan” and others “Ramadaan”.  The noticeable difference is the one “a” or the double “a”?

A. The spelling of Ramadhaan differs in the English language due to the diversity of the English speaking communities, their pronunciations and accents. Furthermore, the phonetic spelling of Arabic words in the English language is hindered with inadequate equivalents in the latter.

The double ‘a’ reflects the Alif in the Arabic word.

‘Dh’ reflects the Arabic letter dhawd.

Whether Ramadhaan or Ramadaan or Ramadan everyone understands that it refers to the Holy Month of fasting, abstinence and gaining divine proximity. These are merely variants in spelling and quite acceptable.

Q. I would like to know what the Shariah requirements for Eid Gah are.

I am from Marlboro and as a community we have always followed the guidance of the Mias Farm Ulema. But after the passing of Mufti Basheer Sanjalvi Rahmatullahi Alayhi, it seems as if our Ulema have lost their bearings. They get fatwas issued from a variety of Muftis and choose the one which suits them the best.

For example, Eid Gah has never ever been performed in Marlboro because Marhoom Mufti Ebrahim Sanjalvi Rahmatullahi Alayhi had passed the fatwa that Alexandra/Marlboro did not fit the Shariah requirements unless land was available on the outskirts. This fatwa was kept alive by his son Marhoom Mufti Basheer and the Ulema of Mias Farm until this year.

In 2012 a large group of the community began fighting for an Eid Gah. Our Ulema, still confused as to what to do, decided to consult with Mufti Muhammed Saeed Motara of Azaadville who said the fatwa of Mufti Basheer still stands despite him passing away. Mufti Muhammed Saeed also issued his own ruling and said Marlboro cannot have an Eid Gah unless we have land on the outskirts of the town.

In a sudden U-Turn, it was announced in 2013 that we will be having an Eid Gah in the centre of Marlboro in the Madressah yard right next to the Masjid. It was announced that no Eid Salaah would take place in the Masjid. It was said that a fatwa had been issued by the Jamiat-ul-Ulema from Fordsburg.

What can a regular musalle do in such a situation? Should I rather perform my Eid Salaah elsewhere if I am in complete doubt? What is the Shariah ruling regarding this situation and also the Eid Gah? Your response would be highly appreciated.

A. You should offer your Eid Salaah elsewhere. The Eid Gah in the centre of Marlboro next to the Masjid is not a valid Musalla or Eid Gah. Where the requirements of the Shariah are not met with regard to the Eid Gah the Masjid has precedence.

Follow the Fatwa of Darul Uloom Azaadville. Those who are promoting the Eid Gah in the Madrasah yard in Marlboro are lost souls following the prodding of Shaitaan and their vain desires.

Fiqh and Masaail - Fasting

Q. Does spotting break the fast? I am taking a new contraceptive and as a result I've passed the time of my haidh, probably due to my body still adjusting to it.  But now 2 weeks later than my normal time I am spotting. Is this haidh? Please advise urgently.

A. 1. These contraceptives are harmful to the health. They wreak havoc to the natural menstrual cycle of a woman. They militate against the natural law of procreation which Allah Ta’ala has decreed in His infinite Wisdom. Only in exceptional cases can the utilization of contraceptives be permissible.

2. The ‘spotting’ you refer to is potentially haidh. You will have to monitor your condition carefully and record the pattern of the spotting, bleeding and days of purity. In many cases the aadat or regular period of haidh is fallen back upon. In your particular case you will have to provide us with the details of your haidh-tuhr cycle as well as the current situation for us to determine whether this spotting is indeed haidh.
