Taraweeh – 8 or 20 rakats..??

Posted by Abd Al Mustafa on Wednesday 1st August, 2012

In recent years this has been a debate that has always popped up from the brothers of the so-called salaf. The debate has been done and dusted but we continue to hear it coming from our dear BORN AGAIN MUSLIM brothers and sisters. So, i thought i’d just put this up anyway.

………the vast MAJORITY of the scholars of hadith, Fiqh, and even the four Mujtahid Imams are in agreement that 20 rak’ahs are the most appropriate, followed by 3 rak’ahs of witr, and this is also the opinion of the Imam of the “Salafiyya”, Ahmad ibn Taymiyya!

……it should be said that the hadith reported from Aisha (Allah be pleased with her) about 11 rak’ahs is not at all to do with taraweeh, according to the majority of scholars, but in fact concerns the number of rak’ahs of TAHAJJUD prayer! [..read on..]

Evidence for 20 rak’ahs of Taraweeh from authentic ahadith

when does ramadan start this year.?

Posted by Abd Al Mustafa on Friday 13th July, 2012

The month of fasting this year will begin on July 20 and the celebration of Eid Al-Fitr will be on Aug. 19, according to a senior Islamic scholar in the Kingdom. Member of the Council of Senior Scholars Sheikh Abdullah Al-Manie said fasting will end on Saturday Aug. 18.

 The days related to religious occasions and rites will have to be confirmed by the sighting of the new moon and royal orders.

** notice how it says “and royal orders“. so if the king decides to start the new month a day early or late, does that mean that the muslims in the UK/USA are legally bound to follow those dates also.?? is the saudi king an authority over muslims beyond saudi borders.?? **

plz plz, those who follow saudi on this plz let us have ur thoughts. jazakallah! sadly, it seems that saudi will have their first taraweeh on thursday night. so another split this year.

Dis-united Ramadan & Eidain – the root cause

Posted by Abd Al Mustafa on Thursday 12th July, 2012

mufti yusuf danka, imam of croydon mosque states,

In 2006, I (Muhammad Yusuf Danka) attended a meeting with the Director General of London Central Masjid Dr Ahmed Dubiyan. This meeting was attended by 20 management members of the West London Masajid and Shaykhul Hadith Molana Samirud-Deen Qasmi حفظه الله from Manchester. In this meeting, Dr Dubiyan stated: ‘In our own Masjid here, there was a meeting and we in UK agreed to unite on the moon sighting announcements and criteria for this country, however, the Jamiatul Ulama Britain & Hizbul Ulama UK changed their minds the very next year, from this, our own attendees complained to us why we were not following Saudi when others who were not Arab did so, this made matters very difficult for us, even after being from a Saudi background, we (London Central Mosque) have no objection in not following the Saudi announcement.

If today, the Scholars of this country agree to unite on the specific criteria, we are ready to adopt that also.

A little history on the the whole matter

In 1984, there was an international conference held in London Central Masjid & Cultural Centre (Regents Park) for the purpose of discussing the Moon Sighting criteria of the UK:

This meeting was attended by approximately 350 Scholars from various Countries around the World, among the participants were: The Grand Mufti of Egypt, Scholars from Europe and also numerous Scholars from the UK who were specifically chosen from their association or work within a certain group of the Muslims (Da’wah Tabligh, Brelvi, Salafi etc), from the side of Jamiatul Ulama Britain, Mufti Aslam was invited, the foundation for sighting of the crescent moon to establish the new Islamic month in the UK was that the moon had to be sighted with the naked eye (Muhaqaq Ru’yat Basari). The outcome of the conference was that all the Scholars present unanimously agreed to abide by the agreed criteria. There were 30 senior Scholars from the UK present, all of whom confirmed their agreement to adopting the criteria by signing their names to it. The agreed criteria was then sent to the Grand Mufti of India, Hadhrat Mufti Abdur Raheem Lajpuri رحمه الله . The acceptance and confirmation of the criteria of 1984 is mentioned in the book Fatawa Raheemiya by Hadhrat Mufti Abdur Raheem Lajpuri رحمه الله

However, even after the conference, the unanimous agreement and all the following events, the very next year, Jamiatul Ulama Britain & Hizbul Ulama UK broke their oath and unanimous agreement to the United Moon Sighting Criteria which was written at the Regents Park Masjid conference.                                                                                              [source]

Saudies wake up on Moon Issues

Posted by Abd Al Mustafa on Thursday 30th April, 2009

The Minister of Justice said that the provisions of Islamic Shariaa Law cannot in any way contradict scientific facts. He added “If something becomes apparent, then it may be wrongly understood; scientific facts reveal the meaning of texts. This shows the difference between knowledge and ignorance.” 

Alhamdulillah wa Shukr Allah! A positive step forward.

Hadith of Adam tawassul through the Prophet (saw)

Posted by Abd Al Mustafa on Friday 29th August, 2008

The prophet (saw) said: “When Adam committed the sin (mistake) he made, he raised his head toward the Throne and said: ‘I am asking You by the right of Muhammad (saw) to forgive me.’ Allah Most High revealed to him:

‘What is Muhammad? Who is Muhammad?’ 

He replied: ‘Glorified be Your Name! When You created me I raised my head toward Your Throne and saw there was written on it: LA ILAHA ILLALLAH MUHAMMADUN RASULULLAH. I knew that there was no one more magnificent in Your sight than him whose name You placed next to Your Name.

Allah Most High revealed to him: ‘O Adam, truly He is the last of the Prophets from your seed and his Community are the last of all Communities from your seed. Were it not for him, O Adam, I would not have created you.’”    read full here.
