    Question: What is the ruling regarding the one who has days of fasting remaining from the month of Ramadhaan yet wishes to fast voluntary fasts or fast the day of ‘Aashooraa. (tenth day of Muharram)? For example, he wants to fast both the tenth and eleventh days with the intention of making up (the missed fasts of Ramadhaan) and not the fast of the day of ‘Aashooraa. Also, is it permissible for one to fast the day of ‘Aashooraa., even if he has fasts to make up from the month of Ramadhaan? And is it permissible for one who has days to make up from Ramadhaan to fast the Day of ‘Aashooraa. and the day before it or the day after it, with the intention of making up (what he has missed)?

    Question: Someone used to fast the six (days) of Shawwaal. If he (then) becomes ill or something prevents him from fasting or he just becomes lazy from fasting in a particular year, is there any sin upon him, because we have heard that whoever fasts them (six days of Shawwaal) in (any particular) year then it is obligatory for him not to leave them (i.e. continue to fast them every year)?

    Response: The fasting of the six (days) of Shawwaal after the day of ‘Eed (al-Fitr) is a Sunnah, and it is not obligatory upon whoever fasts them once or more (than once) to continue fasting them, and there is no sin upon whoever leaves off fasting them.

    And with Allaah lies all success and may Allaah send prayers and salutations upon our Prophet (sal-Allaahu `alayhe wa sallam) and his family and his companions.

    Question: I began fasting the six (days) of Shawwaal, however I was unable to complete them because of extenuating circumstances and work. Now I have two days remaining, so what do I do O Eminence (Shaykh), do I make these days up or is there any sin upon me?

    Response: Fasting the six (days) of Shawwaal is a recommended act of worship and not an obligation. So for you is the reward of that which you fasted of them, and it is hoped for you the complete reward if that which prevented you from fasting them all was an Islaamically acceptable reason. The Prophet (sal-Allaahu `alayhe wa sallam) said: ((If the servant becomes ill or is travelling then Allaah writes for him that which he used to do when he was in good health and back at home (i.e. not travelling))), narrated by al-Bukhaaree. And there is nothing for you to make up for that which you left of them.

    And with Allaah lies all success.

    Question: Is the fasting of the six days (of Shawwaal) a must after the month of Ramadhaan immediately after the day of ‘eed, or is it permissible (to do so) after ‘eed by (a number of) days in the month of Shawwaal or not?

    Response: It is not a must for him to fast immediately after ‘eed al-fitr, rather it is permissible to begin fasting after ‘eed by a day or (a number of) days. And (also) to fast them continuously or intermittently in the month of Shawwaal according to that which is easy for him. And the issue is quite open in this matter, and it is not obligatory, rather it is a sunnah.

    The Prophet (saas) practiced only that which was 
    revealed to him.

    One of the most important characteristics, frequently mentioned with regards to the Prophet (saas) in the Qur’an, is that he only practiced what Allah revealed and asked of him, with no concern about what others might think. Important figures and members of other religions at the time wanted him to impose rules that would benefit them. Although these people were more numerous and powerful, the Prophet (saas) was punctilious about abiding by Allah’s commandments and the Qur’an. Allah tells us the following in one verse:

    When Our Clear Signs are recited to them, those who do not expect to meet Us say, “Bring a Qur’an other than this one or change it.” Say: “It is not for me to change it of my own accord. I follow nothing except what is revealed to me. I fear, were I to disobey my Lord, the punishment of a Dreadful Day.” Say: “Had Allah so wished, I would not have recited it to you nor would He have made it known to you. I lived among you for many years before it came. Will you not use your intellect?” (Surah Yunus: 15-16)

    Islam began when man’s career on earth began—more precisely at the time of man’s creation and his descent. Allah created Adam and Eve and enjoined them to worship Him and live a life of obedience to the Divine Will.

     The Islamic way of life can be revived and reconstructed again and again with the help of the Quran and the traditions if ever, God forbid, the freshness of its true spirit wanes. The world no longer requires any new Prophet to revive Islam to its pristine glory. It is enough to have among us the learned people who know the Quran and the traditions of the Prophet and who are able to apply their teachings to their own lives and stimulate others to adopt and apply them in their lives as well. This is how the stream of Islam will continue to flow, refreshing the eternal thirst of mankind.

    Islamic History is made up of Prophets of Allah T’ala from Adam to Muhammad (peace be on them), the Sahabah, and the great religious leaders who took up the challenges of their times, revived and reconstructed the Islamic way of life based on the Quran and Sunnah.

    Salah is the name for the obligatory prayers that are performed five times a day, and are a direct link between the worshipper and God. There is no hierarchical authority in Islam and there are no priests. Prayers are led by a learned person who knows the Qur’an and is generally chosen by the congregation.

    Prayers are said at dawn, mid-day, late-afternoon, sunset and nightfall,  and thus determine the rhythm of the entire day. These five prescribed prayers contain verses from the Qur’an, and are said in Arabic, the  language of the Revelation. Personal supplications, however, can be  offered in one’s own language and at any time.

    The pilgrimage to Makkah (the hajj) is an obligation only for those who are physically and financially able to do so. Nevertheless, over two million people go to Makkah each year from every corner of the globe providing a unique opportunity for those of different nations to meet one another.

    The annual hajj begins in the twelfth month of the Islamic year (which is lunar, not solar, so that hajj and Ramada-n fall sometimes in summer, sometimes in winter). Pilgrims wear special clothes: simple garments that strip away distinctions of class and culture, so that all stand equal before God.

    The rites of the hajj, which are of Abrahamic origin, include going around the Ka’bah seven times, and going seven times between the hills of Safa and Marwa as did Hagar (Hajir, Abraham’s wife) during her search for water. The pilgrims later stand together on the wide plains of ‘Arafat (a large expanse of desert outside Makkah) and join in prayer for God’s  forgiveness, in what is often thought as a preview of the Day of Judgment.

    The close of the hajj is marked by a festival, the ‘Id al Adha, which is celebrated with prayers and the exchange of gifts in Muslim communities everywhere. This and the ‘Id al Fitr, a festive day celebrating the end of Ramada-n, are the two holidays of the Islamic calendar.  Source: Islam 101.

    The financial obligation upon Muslims.

    An important principle of Islam is that everything belongs to God, and that wealth is therefore held by human beings in trust. The word zakah means  both “purification” and “growth.” Our possessions are purified by setting aside a proportion for those in need and for the society in general. Like the pruning of plants, this cutting back balances and encourages new growth.

    Each Muslim calculates his or her own zakah individually. This involves the annual payment of a fortieth of one’s capital, excluding such items as primary residence, car and professional tools.

    An individual may also give as much as he or she pleases as sadaqa-h,  and does so preferably in secret. Although this word can be translated as “voluntary charity” it has a wider meaning.
    The Prophet said, “Even meeting your brother with a cheerful face is an act of charity.” The Prophet also said: “Charity is a necessity for every Muslim.” He was asked: “What if a person has nothing?” The Prophet  replied: “He should work with his own hands for his benefit and then give something out of such earnings in charity.” The Companions of the Prophet asked: “What if he is not able to work?” The Prophet said: “He should help the poor and needy.” The Companions further asked: “What if he cannot do even that?” The Prophet said: “He should urge others to do good.” The Companions said: “What if he lacks that also?” The Prophet said: “He should check himself from doing evil. That is also an act of charity.”            source: Islam101.

    Islam is based on the belief in one God{Allah}which is the monotheism.That is the basic belief of Islam.We derive these details from two main sources in our religion,the holy Qura’an which is the word of Allah and the Sunnah which is the saying of the prophet Mohammad {peace be upon him}{salalahu alaihi wasalam}.We can also learn about monotheism through our own contemplation of the creation of Allah when we give a look around us at the heaven or at the earth,even if we look at our selves how are they been created.Allah has commanded us to think deeply and contemplate,and to have deep conviction in our faith.Our father Ibraheem{Abraham} {peace be upon him}has spent much time in deep thought until Allah guided him  and he became a monotheist,a believer in al mighty Allah.His believe was completely different from that of the polytheistic society in which he lived.”Look” at the creation of the sky and earth and in the alternation of the day and night ,there are signs for people of understanding who says praises of Allah,standing ,sitting,lying down on there sides and think about{the wonder of }creation in the heavens and the earth.Our lord!!! Not for nothing have you created {all}this! Glory to you!give us rescue from the punishment of fire”  {Qur’an: Al Imran 3: 190-191}.
