    Narrated Shu'aib:
    I asked Az−Zuhri, "Did the Prophet ever offer the Fear
    Prayer?" Az−Zuhri said, "I was told by Salim that `Abdullah
    bin `Umar I had said, 'I took part in a holy battle with
    Allah's Apostle I in Najd. We faced the enemy and arranged
    ourselves in rows. Then Allah's Apostle (p.b.u.h) stood up to
    lead the prayer and one party stood to pray with him while the
    other faced the enemy. Allah's Apostle (p.b.u.h) and the
    former party bowed and performed two prostrations. Then that
    party left and took the place of those who had not prayed.
    Allah's Apostle prayed one rak`a (with the latter) and
    performed two prostrations and finished his prayer with
    Taslim. Then everyone of them bowed once and performed two
    prostrations individually.' " Bukhari 2/64
    Narrated Abu Huraira: I heard Allah's Apostle (p.b.u.h)
    saying, "We (Muslims) are the last (to come) but (will be) the
    foremost on the Day of Resurrection though the former nations
    were given the Holy Scriptures before us. And this was their
    day (Friday) the celebration of which was made compulsory for
    them but they differed about it. So Allah gave us the guidance
    for it (Friday) and all the other people are behind us in this
    respect: the Jews' (holy day is) tomorrow (i.e. Saturday) and
    the Christians' (is) the day after tomorrow (i.e. Sunday)."
    2.2:
    Narrated `Abdullah bin `Umar: Allah's Apostle (p.b.u.h) said,
    "Anyone of you attending the Friday (prayers) should take a
    bath. Bukhari 2/1
    Narrated Anas:
    The people mentioned the fire and the bell (they suggested
    those as signals to indicate the starting of prayers), and by
    that they mentioned the Jews and the Christians. Then Bilal
    was ordered to pronounce Adhan for the prayer by saying its
    wordings twice, and for the Iqama (the call for the actual
    standing for the prayers in rows) by saying its wordings once.
    (Iqama is pronounced when the people are ready for the
    prayer).
    1.578:
    Narrated Ibn `Umar: When the Muslims arrived at Medina, they
    used to assemble for the prayer, and used to guess the time
    for it. During those days, the practice of Adhan for the
    prayers had not been introduced yet. Once they discussed this
    problem regarding the call for prayer. Some people suggested
    the use of a bell like the Christians, others proposed a
    trumpet like the horn used by the Jews, but `Umar was the
    first to suggest that a man should call (the people) for the
    prayer; so Allah's Apostle ordered Bilal to get up and
    pronounce the Adhan for prayers. Bukhari 1/577.
    Narrated Ibn Shihab: Once `Umar bin `Abdul `Aziz delayed the
    prayer and `Urwa bin Az−Zubair went to him and said, "Once in
    'Iraq, Al−Mughira bin Shu`ba delayed his prayers and Abi
    Mas`ud Al−Ansari went to him and said, 'O Mughira! What is
    this? Don't you know that once Gabriel came and offered the
    prayer (Fajr prayer) and Allah's Apostle prayed too, then he
    prayed again (Zuhr prayer) and so did Allah's Apostle and
    again he prayed (`Asr prayers and Allah's Apostle did the
    same; again he prayed (Maghrib−prayer) and so did Allah's
    Apostle and again prayed (`Isha prayer) and so did Allah's
    Apostle and (Gabriel) said, 'I was ordered to do so (to
    demonstrate the prayers prescribed to you)?'" `Umar (bin
    `Abdul `Aziz) said to `Urwa, "Be sure of what you Say. Did
    Gabriel lead Allah's Apostle at the stated times of the
    prayers?" `Urwa replied, "Bashir bin Abi Mas`ud narrated like
    this on the authority of his father." `Urwa added, "Aisha told
    me that Allah's Apostle used to pray `Asr prayer when the
    sunshine was still inside her residence (during the early time
    of `Asr). Bukhari 1.501:
    Narrated Abu Dhar: Allah's Apostle said, "While I was at Mecca
    the roof of my house was opened and Gabriel descended, opened
    my chest, and washed it with Zamzam water. Then he brought a
    golden tray full of wisdom and faith and having poured its
    contents into my chest, he closed it. Then he took my hand and
    ascended with me to the nearest heaven, when I reached the
    nearest heaven, Gabriel said to the gatekeeper of the heaven,
    'Open (the gate).' The gatekeeper asked, 'Who is it?' Gabriel
    answered: 'Gabriel.' He asked, 'Is there anyone with you?'
    Gabriel replied, 'Yes, Muhammad I is with me.' He asked, 'Has
    he been called?' Gabriel said, 'Yes.' So the gate was opened
    and we went over the nearest heaven and there we saw a man
    sitting with some people on his right and some on his left. Continue reading 

    Let us examine closely the square-structured Ka’bah (The Holy House) at Makkah, in Arabia, wherein in its Eastern corner lies the Black Stone set up chest-high. Every pilgrim in Makkah tries to kiss and caress it fondly, the first thing upon arrival there. This action marks the start of the act of Tawaf. The word “Tawaf” is an arabic infinitive noun which means to circle, compass or move around something. A pilgrim has to circle the Ka’bah seven times, to complete Tawaf. Each one of the seven rounds begins by kissing or caressing if possible, or by simply pointing at the Black Stone. The Black Stone thus, serves to mark the start of each round. Tawaf is one of the integral parts of Pilgrimage (Hajj), which is also performed, as a separate act of worship at any time. Thus we find the Ka’bah continually being circled by people day and night.

    There are three forms of Hajj: T a m a t t u ' - I f r a a d - Q i r a n
    T ama t t u ' : A pilgrim wears Ihram for Umrah only during the months of
    Hajj, which means when a pilgrim reaches Makkah, he/she makes Tawaf
    and Sa'yi for Umrah. Then shaves or clips the hair. On the day of
    Tarwiya, which is the eighth of Dhul-Hijja, a pilgrim puts on his Ihram for
    Hajj only and carries out all of its requirements.
    Ifraad: A pilgrim wears Ihram for Hajj only. When he reaches Makkah,
    he performs Tawaf for his arrival and Sa'yi for Hajj. He doesn't shave or
    clip- his hair as he doesn't disengage from Ihram. Instead, he remains in
    Ihram till after he stones Jamrah Al-Aqaba on the Eid day. It is permissible
    for him to postpone his Sa'yi for Hajj until after his Tawaf for Hajj.
    Qi ran: A pilgrim wears Ihram for both Umrah and Hajj or he wears
    Ihram first for Umrah, then makes intentions for Hajj before his Tawaf for
    Hajj. The obligations on one performing Ifraad are the same as those on
    one performing Qiran, except that the latter must slaughter whereas the
    former is not obligated to do so. The best of the three forms is Tamattu'. It
    is the form that the prophet-may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon
    him encouraged his followers to perform. Continue reading 

     

    Praise and thanks be to Allah, blessings be to His Messenger Muhammad (peace be upon him)

    Allah say in the Holy Qur’an: “Allah keeps firm those who believe, with the firm word, in worldly life and in the Hereafter. And Allah sends astray the wrongdoers. And Allah does what He wills.” [Ibrahim 14:27]

    {يُثَبِّتُ اللَّـهُ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا بِالْقَوْلِ الثَّابِتِ فِي الْحَيَاةِ الدُّنْيَا وَفِي الْآخِرَةِ ۖوَيُضِلُّ اللَّـهُ الظَّالِمِينَ ۚوَيَفْعَلُ اللَّـهُ مَا يَشَاءُ}

    Transliteration: Yuthabbitu Allāhu Al-Ladhīna ‘Āmanū Bil-Qawli Ath-Thābiti Fī Al-Ĥayāati Ad-Dunyā Wa Fī Al-‘Ākhirati Wa Yuđillu Allāhu Až-Žālimīna Wa Yaf`alu Allāhu Mā Yashā’u Continue reading

     

    Many people ask about life after death – this one came from S.W. He asks the question about “Preparing for Death”:

    “Dear Bridge to Faith:
    I am trying to make a list of things to do before I die and would like some suggestions?
    Could you please comment as to what Islam says about death?”
    Thank You, S. W.”

    Answer from Sheik Yusuf Estes,
    USA Chaplain (retired) 


    God Almighty is All Wise and Knower of All Things

    It is quite interesting for me to receive a question about Islam’s view on death from someone who is not of the Islamic faith. For those who are not familiar with the teachings of Islam, we should perhaps cover a few basics before attempting to answer this most honest and in depth question.  Continue reading

    Question: I am an employee at a bank, so is it permissible for me to perform Hajj from my earnings?

    Response: Working in a bank which deals with ribaa is not permissible.

    This is because it is assisting in sin and evil. And also, the Prophet (sal-Allaahu `alayhe wa sallam) cursed the one who ate/benefitted (aakil) from ribaa, as well as the one responsible (for the transactions), the witnesses (to the transactions) and the one who writes (the transactions).

    Therefore, the employee in reality is assisting the bank, even if he is just a (bank) clerk. So he is cursed according to the text of the hadeeth. Based upon this, the wage he earns is haraam, and it is not permissible for him to eat/benefit from it and nor to perform Hajj with it. This is because the (performance of) Hajj requires pure/good earnings from halaal (sources), however, if he has (already) performed Hajj, then his Hajj is correct/sound but with sin (attached to it, i.e. lesser in reward).
