Ask Your Question today. So I totally had to hi-jack this written text from another post on is it normal titled: The first being that this type of unconventional sexual behavior between two consenting adults simply can not be classified as "cheating".

I recently discovered that I get incredibly turned on by my husband meeting, flirting and sexually conquering other women. My husband is athletic and has stamina for days, so when he has sex with other women they are completely caught off guard by this.

There expectations of him still fucking them past 60 minutes is a total surprise when he just keeps going and going and going. So far, since we have opened our marriage he has not ejaculated on or in a female yet. However, he is a complete body charmer and I enjoy and anticipate him coming home afterwards to tell me about it in detail how these anxious women came on his penis multiple times only to tire out before he could cum. So after he cleans up we talk all about it as I rub him down and prepare to finish him off.

Usually, he is still so aroused by the power to handle two pussies in one night that he get me to nut more than a few times as well. I'm not a swinger.

I haven't yet discovered if being there when he fucks other women gets me jealous and fearful. But I do know that I still have small bouts of fear and jealousy that creep up inside me when he tells me that "It's about to go down. My husband does grant me the power to control it and negotiate it, with each conversation and milestone we have I find myself starting to let go of those silly notions.

I also, don't want sex with anyone else. I've had past experiences with other boyfriends and partners by never experience as passionate, hot and open as with my husband.

And I'm simply not interested in someone else's cock. However, the fantasies of watching and participating with one of my closest friends who just became recently divorced is what I am anxiously awaiting to experience, with this fantasy taking place in my mind long before we even discussed opening our marriage. What turns me on about my husband sleeping with other women, is the opportunity to free myself of labels and stigmas that come with being a hetero-sexual, african-american female, married to an intelligent, strong african-american and that's one thing co-existing in happiness.

Any urge I feel to vie with the other woman doesn't interfere with his pleasure, but adds to it with me, and his attention is directed only at me. Then,the more unhibited the female was, with the more reserved my husband was - the more I get turned on. In some ways I vie to be stronger, more stable and more secure than her. I revel vicariously in his excitement, and if I get to listen or eaves-drop on her, that excites me too.

It's like watching a porno, but the actor is my man. I love him to tell me she was great but I am better. I adore sharing what he did by talking about the experience in detail while we make love.

I want him to tell me exactly what they did, what it felt like, what she said, what noises she made, how she reacted, and how he reacted. I want to hear what she liked most and what he liked most. He was gorgeous when we met, still is to this day and he's great in bed.

My friends envy me. So it's like showing him off. I'm totally into to this. Sex with him has always been sensual, freaky and fun and after 10 years of knowing him it's due time to add a bit of nasty to the mix. He's free to find his own partners, but I'm starting to explore the joy of finding women for him because it gives me a bit of a rush, and helps start my fantasy.

It also helps me to put things a bit in perspective from a male point of view. So far my friends who do know smile with excitement of the opportunity that they may have a chance with not only him but the both of us. Sometimes I think I'm nuts not to lock him down. But it turns me on, and we seem happier than many other married couples. Please don't just tell me not to worry about what others think.

But nobody likes to feel like a complete freak either. Is my abnormality normal at some level? The poll questions I have posed are insecurities that have crept up when thinking of my husband having sex with another woman.

My biggest concerns are the following: STD's whether transmitted from the mouth, anus and or vagina. Lastly, the "emotional" bond that can potentially be established through hugging, kissing and spooning before, during and after one-on-one sex.

Thanks for your response, I actually take comfort in the fact that he does not finish himself off with these women. And has enough control and will power to bring that "reward" home to me. Firstly, when was this written and is it all actually true? Also do you have kids? I am in a similar situation but I have always wondered what role sexual abuse plays in these scenarios.

My fantasies are intense and sometimes I worry that my past has made me addicted to risky behavior. I see its been about a year ago since you posted about your experience and curious if you are still with your husband? I have the same feelings and recently discussed pursuing this further. We've tried this twice already but I'm looking for more! At first he was not too sure how I was truly feeling about it but when he discovered how hot our sex life has become even better, he's a little more for it!

I really hope you respond! I think you guys are on to a good thing. Is it normal for me i enjoy my husband having sex with other women? It is ok for him to perform anal sex on another woman? It is ok for him to spend the entire night with another woman?

Twice a week is ok for sex with another woman? It is ok for him to have sex without protection? Help us keep this site organized and clean. Thank you for sharing, I like it too Curious to see how this turn out?

To our topic; below are some points of reminder for the Muslims. The previous nations before us were lead astray from this day and Allaah has allowed this ummah to be successful to acknowledge it. Abu Hurayrah may Allaah be pleased with him mentioned that the Prophet peace and blessings be upon him sai.

A great emphasis has been put on the obligation for the Prayer. Whoever is heedless of this prayer, Allaah will place a seal over his heart. Then they will be among the heedless. Extra point of benefit: Abu Hurayrah may Allaah be pleased with him narrated that the messenger of Allaah peace and blessings be upon him ,. Ibn Al-Qayyim may Allaah have mercy upon him mentioned that there is a difference of opinion about when this particular hour is.

The most acceptable of opinions are two: This hour is after Asr. And the 2nd point of view is the most superior. Giving charity on Friday is the best day of the week to do so.

This is similar to the superiority of giving charity during Ramadhan with regard to the rest of the months. So whoever comes for the Prayer must perform a ghusl….

Graded as being Hasan through other narrations that support it i. Time Management from an Islamic Perspective. Will he still be heedless? If you fail in your exams, there is always a next year. If you lose your spouse, there can be a second marriage, but if you die, there is no second chance. This life is only one opportunity. Those who were before us had lives longer than us.

The difference between doing and wanting to do. There are many things in life that we want to do desperately, but we are unable to do them due to various reasons. But, there are many things in our life which we can do, we are supposed to do, yet we do not do them. The list would be a long one. Let us see how much we live actually.

If you have to live for 60 years, subtract 15 years of your boyhood where no one questions you. From the remaining 45 years, if you sleep for 8 hours a day, you have deleted 15 years in sleeping. From the remaining 30 years, if you spend 2 hours on the television, you have 2. From the remaining 27 and half years of your life, you have to earn and yet find out ways for immeasurable reward from Allah. How and where is our time wasted? Time is wasted in minutes. Assemble these pieces of minutes everyday and count how many hours you waste every year.

Our most productive actions. If you do it for 10 years, it will be equivalent to years. Suppose you choose to memorize one dua everyday for one hour, by the end of the year, you can memorize duas of the Sunnah of the Prophet P. Now, without wasting time, make a list of the things you would like to learn in the next three months, 6 months, 1 year and 2 years.

What are your most productive Islamic activities? This is for a continuous reward Sawaab-e-Jaariya. Choose from the below activities or add your own skills and talents:. He keeps on doing it properly and your account keeps on increasing. Note them down just now and remember us in your supplications. A list of probable time wasters. How to get the best out of this life. How many Lailatul Qadr have you missed out? What do you know what is Lailatul Qadr?

Lailatul Qadr is better than months? Verse gives us an idea or a short- cut in earning immeasurable sawab. That is, if you worship or do ibadah in the last 5 odd nights in the month of Ramadan, by the Grace of Allah, one of them would be Lailatul Qadr. In 10 years, it is 50 days, which is lesser than 2 months and if you get 10 Lailatul Qadr in your life. You get a reward of 10, months which is equal to years. Now calculate how many Lailatul Qadr you have missed out enjoying the night playing carom, chatting and doing useless things.

He sallallahu alaihi wa-sallam also said: He slept one half of the night, got up and prayed for one third, and then slept the remaining one sixth.

Abu Hurayrah radhi allahu anhu reported that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alaihi wa-sallam said: If he makes wudhu ablution for prayer , another knot loosens and if he prays, the third knot loosens and he becomes lively and good-natured; otherwise he gets up ill-natured and lazy. Who will seek My forgiveness, so that I may forgive him. Jabir radhi allahu anhu reported, the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alaihi wa-sallam saying: This happens every night.

Abu Umamah radhi allahu anhu reported that the Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa-sallam was once asked: If you can be among those who remember Allah at that hour then do so. And may Allah have mercy on a woman who wakes up at night, prays, and wakes her husband to pray and if he refuses, she sprinkles water on his face.

Constant deeds guarantee ample reward: The Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa-sallam never ceased praying it. When he was sick or weak, he prayed sitting. She also reported the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alaihi wa-sallam saying: The Excellence of Qiyam in Ramadaan: Many Ahaadeeth describe the excellence of Qiyam particularly in Ramadaan, some of them are:.

Abu Hurayrah radhi allahu anhu reported: He sallallahu alaihi wa-sallam used to say: Among the Most Righteous: Amr bin Murrah al-Juhani radhi allahu anhu said: Getting up for Qiyam al-Layl: Some of them are:. As soon as the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alaihi wa-sallam got up for Qiyam al-Layl, he would brush his teeth with a siwaak and perform wudhu, he sallallahu alaihi wa-sallam said: Ubadah bin as-Samit radhi allahu anhu reported that the Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa-sallam said: To Him belongs the sovereignty; to Him belongs all praise.

He is capable of everything. Exalted is Allah; Allah is the Greatest, there is no power or might except from Allah. When he got up at night to pray , I would hear him repeat for a long time:. Abu Qatadah radhi allahu anhu reported that one night the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alaihi wa-sallam saw Abu Bakr radhi allahu anhu praying with a low voice.

He then saw Umar radhi allahu anhu praying with a loud voice. Afterwards, he said to Abu Bakr radhi allahu anhu: I passed by you while you prayed and you were lowering your voice. I passed by you while you prayed, and you were raising your voice. Thereby I wake the sleepy and drive the Shaytaan away. And you Umar, lower your voice a little. Ibn Abbas radhi allahu anhu reported: Praying Qiyam al-Layl in the Jamaah: It is a Sunnah to pray the Qiyam al-Layl of Ramadaan with the Jamaah congregation ; and this is better than praying it individually.

The Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa-sallam himself established the practice of praying Qiyam al-Layl in Jamaah, approved of it from the Sahabah radhi allahu anhu and greatly emphasized its merits. On one such night, the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alaihi wa-sallam instructed me to lay down a mat for him in the Masjid by the door of my apartment and I did so.

So that night, more people gathered until the Masjid was full. The next morning people talked about it and on the third night the number of people increased in the Masjid. Again the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alaihi wa-sallam went out and they followed him in prayer. On the fourth night, the Masjid was overrun with people. The people have gathered to follow you in the prayer. So commit only to the deed you would be capable of performing, because Allah does not tire from yours deeds until you tire.

Besides praying Qiyam al-Layl in the Jamaah himself, the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alaihi wa-sallam greatly encouraged this practice.

Once, after leading the people in the Qiyaam prayer of Ramadaan, when he was leaving and people requested him to continue the prayer for the other part of the night, he sallallahu alaihi wa-sallam said: Thus, even though delaying Qiyam carries special merits, praying Qiyamal-Layl with the Jamaah, early in the night is better than praying it alone, late in the night.

This is why Umar radhi allahu anhu , revived this Sunnah in his Khilafah and the Muslims continue it till now. Many people use this act reviving the sunnah of The Night Prayer Qiyaam al-Layl in Jamaah of Umar radhi allahu anhu as basis for misconceptions like: In his statement, Umar radhi allahu anhu did not intend the Shariah meaning of Bidah i.

Describing it as good is only because of this reason and this is the understanding of the great scholars in explaining the statement of Umar radhi allahu anhu. For example, Ibn Hajr al-Haythami said: Furthermore, there are things which the Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa-sallam avoided despite the need and ability to do them during his lifetime.

Avoiding such things is a Sunnah and performing them is a blameworthy innovation. Similarly, there was a need to pray Qiyam al-Layl in Jamaah, but there was also a reason which prevented the Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa-sallam from continuing to pray it in Jamaah. Nothing prevented him sallallahu alaihi wa-sallam from continuing with Qiyam al-Layl in Jamaah except fearing that it would become an obligation for his Ummah, because he was kind and merciful towards the believers.

Women joining the Jamaah: Women are permitted to attend Qiyam al-Layl, as is indicated in the Hadeeth of Abu Dharr radhi allahu anhu , he said: The Time of Qiyam al-Layl: The time of Qiyam al-Layl starts after the Isha prayer up to the Fajr prayer. Abu Basrah radhi allahu anhu reported that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alaihi wa-sallam said: However, if one prays alone he should try to pray it in the later part of the night, because that is better than the earlier part, as the Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa-sallam said: Indeed, the prayer of the night is witnessed by the angels , and that is better.

Recitation during Qiyam al-Layl: The Messenger of Allah sallallahu alaihi wa-sallam did not fix the length of recitation for Qiyam.

His recitations varied in length; it was sometimes short, more often long, and extremely long on some occasions. Abdullah bin Amr radhi allahu anhu reported that the Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa-sallam said: Whoever prays Qiyam reciting one hundred verses, he will be recorded among the devout and whoever prays Qiyam reciting one thousand verses, he will be recorded among those with a multitude of good deeds. The longer the Qiyam, the better.

Thus, when one prays alone, he is encouraged to make his recitation as long as possible. Various supplications are reported from the Messenger of Allah r for the Qiyam prayer.

It is recommended to learn one of these, which would allow practicing the Sunnah in a better way. Following are three narrations: And all praise belongs to You; You are the lighter of the Heavens and the Earth and all that is therein.

And all praise belongs to You; You are the Sovereign of the Heavens and the Earth and all that is therein. And all praise belongs to You; You are the Truth; Your Promise is the truth; meeting Your in the Hereafter is true; Your Speech is true; Jannah is true; the Fire is true; the Prophets are true; Muhammad sallallahu alaihi wa-sallam is true; and the Hour of Doom is true.

So forgive what I have done in the past or will do in the future, what I hide or declare, and what you know better than me of what I did.

You are the One, Who brings some people forward, and moves back the others. There is no true god except You, and there is no god than you. Guide me to the truth in matters of difference, with Your Permission, You guide whomever You will, to the straight path.

There is no true god except Allah. I seek refuge with Allah, the All-Hearing, All-Knowing, from the outcast Shaytaan, from his spurring, blowing, and breathing. The people entitled to Zakaat are those places we can direct our Zakaat to. Allaah took charge of explaining for Himself what these places are, saying:.

They are those who are not able to support themselves with sufficient means, except for very little, which is less than half a year. They are those who are able to support themselves with sufficient means for half of the year or more, but not enough for the entire year. So they should receive support that will complete the year for them. If a person does not have any cash on him, but yet has some other source of income, such as a profession, a salary or investment profits that will support him financially, he should not be given Zakaat.

Those employed to collect the Zakaat: They are the ones put in charge by the ruler of a country to collect the Zakaat from those who owe it, distribute it to those who are entitled to it, guard the funds and all other types of duties involved with the supervision of Zakaat.

So they should be given a portion of the Zakaat in accordance with the work they put in, even if they may already be wealthy. Those whose hearts will be inclined: This refers to tribal and clan leaders, who do not have strong Faith. They should be given Zakaat so as to strengthen their Faith, which will make them callers to Islaam and good role models. But what if a person is weak in his Islaam, and he is not from the leaders who are followed and obeyed, but rather from the common folk, should he be given some Zakaat in order to strengthen his Faith?

Look at the example of a poor person. He is given Zakaat in order to nourish his body. However some scholars hold that he should not be given the Zakaat since the benefit of strengthening his Faith is a personal benefit that is specific to him alone.

What falls under this is buying slaves using Zakaat funds in order to free them, as well as assisting in the liberation of Muslim war captives. They are the ones who owe debts. This is on the condition that they do not possess that which will enable them to remove their debts. So these people should be given enough Zakaat that will relieve them of their debt, whether it is a small or large amount, even if they may be wealthy due to their livelihood. So in the case where there is a man who has some income that is enough for the livelihood of himself and his family, but he has some debt that he cannot repay, he may be given sufficient Zakaat that will remove his debt from him.

Can he be given Zakaat in order to remove his debt? The correct opinion is that it is permissible. It is permissible for a person who owes Zakaat to go to the creditor person owed the debt and pay him back the loan of the indebted without the latter being aware of it. This is on the condition that the person owing Zakaat knows that the indebted one is unable to repay his debt.

In the Cause of Allaah: This refers to Jihaad in the Cause of Allaah. So those who fight in Jihaad should be given a portion of the Zakaat that will suffice them for their Jihaad and enable them to buy the necessary tools for Jihaad in the Cause of Allaah.

So a student of Islamic knowledge should be given that which will enable him to seek knowledge, such as books and so on. This is unless he already has money of his own that will enable him to achieve that. This refers to a traveler that has been cut off from his journey. So he should be given enough Zakaat that will enable him to return to his homeland. These are the people who are entitled to receive Zakaat, the ones whom Allaah has mentioned in His Book and informed us that this is an obligation that He mandated, which stems from His knowledge and wisdom.

It is not permissible to direct the Zakaat to any other place, such as towards building masaajid or fixing roads. This is because Allaah has told us those who are entitled to receive the Zakaat for the purpose of limiting them to just those mentioned. So this limitation indicates that we are to negate all other potential recipients that due not fall under this limitation. If we were to reflect on those individuals that we may give Zakaat to, we would come to realize that among them are those who are in need of the Zakaat for personal use as well as those who are in need of it for the Muslims generally.

So by this, we can see the extent of wisdom behind the requirement of Zakaat. And we would come to know that the wisdom behind Zakaat is to build a complete and upright society, as best as possible. And that Islaam does not disregard money or the benefits that can be generated from wealth, nor does it leave greedy and stingy souls to go about freely an unchecked with their stinginess and vain desires.

On the contrary, it is the greatest guiding force towards the good and betterment of nations. And all praise is due to Allaah, Lord of the universe. Laylatul Qadr , Ramadan. Answer Praise be to Allaah. Allaah has blessed some of the elite among His slaves with the promise that they will enter Paradise without being brought to account and without being punished. The Messenger of Allaah peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him said: The nations were shown to me and I saw a Prophet with a small band of followers, and a Prophet with one or two men with him, and a Prophet who had no one with him.

Then I was shown a huge multitude and I thought they were my ummah, but it was said to me: This is Moosa peace be upon him and his people. But look at the horizon. So I looked and saw a huge multitude, and it was said to me: Look at the other horizon, and there was another huge multitude. And it was said to me: This is your ummah and with them are seventy thousand who will enter Paradise without being brought to account or punished. Some of them said: Perhaps they are the ones who accompanied the Messenger of Allaah peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him.

Perhaps they are the ones who were born in Islam and did not associate anything with Allaah. And they mentioned other things. The Messenger of Allaah peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him came out to them and said: Pray to Allaah to make me one of them.

He did not say that among these seventy thousand would be those who died during the month of Ramadaan. Rather those who are mentioned are the elite of the believers who achieved true belief in the oneness of the Lord of the Worlds Tawheed. It says in Fath al-Majeed: Concerning the virtue of one who dies whilst fasting, it was narrated that the Prophet peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him said: Whoever fasts one day seeking the Face of Allaah and that was his final action, will enter Paradise.

Whoever gives charity seeking the Face of Allaah and that was his final action will enter Paradise. It should be noted that the previous hadeeth points to the high status of those seventy thousand may Allaah make us among them with regard to doing righteous deeds, which is what brought them to that status before Allaah. It should be obvious to the questioner that if there were anything special about dying in Ramadaan, this would apply only to the believers and not all those who die in Ramadaan.

Similarly, with regard to the hadeeth quoted above concerning the virtue of one who dies whilst fasting, which says that he will enter Paradise, this promise is for one who does righteous deeds and that was his final deed, not simply for dying in Ramadaan. Moreover, it does not mention that specific virtue of entering Paradise without being brought to account.

I open the door and am filled with glee; The visitor ahead is no stranger to me. I welcome the guest with utmost delight; For I know it has come to give me respite.

An air of happiness fills the space; My home now seems, a better place! Have you any clue who this visitor could be? The muslims who pray and fast with zest; Are aware of the rewards of this month manifest. Throughout this month we weep and repent; Now is the time to strongly lament. And those who shun this sacred month; on the Day of Reckoning will face the brunt.

The angels descend with Gabriel AS in the lead; To check on the steadfast and record every deed. A feeling of grief now fills my heart; As the month of Ramadhan will soon depart. So lets make a start and worship Him alone; Now that the worth of this month is known.

Alhamdulilah, most of us jump into Ramadan full of energy, catching our taraweeh daily, setting time aside for Quran recitation, and even performing qiyam prayers at night. BUT, come a couple of weeks into this month, many of us go through this DIP, loosing that energy we started off with.

We begin to slack and our ibadah just DIPS! Get the three tips NOW: We should also keep in mind that the worship we undertake in this month is not an easy task to accomplish. Then we await the call of adhaan to initiate the great act of worship once again. Indeed, many people put together hard efforts in the month of Ramadhan, BUT who is the one, whose worship will truly benefit him on the Day of Resurrection and protect him from the severe punishments and trials of that Day?

And for the Zalimun polytheist and wrong-doers there are no helpers. Allah , Islam , Muslims , obedience , Prophet saw0 , Ramadan. For most Muslims, Ramadan is family time. You get up together, eat Iftar together, pray together, etc. Here are a couple of ideas. Please feel free to post yours at the bottom of this article.

Establish a time to call and a schedule of who will call whom. Make it a little exciting by adding some funny phrases every week that will really wake everyone up e. Make it a potluck, order pizza or if you can afford it, get it catered. Make sure to especially invite those who are away from their families. While praying alone in peace and quiet is great, praying shoulder-to-shoulder with other Muslims with whom you have nothing in common except your faith is a unique and uplifting experience.

It may seem hard to squeeze in time for anything else in Ramadan, but try, at least once, to do some volunteer work. Cook a meal for those who attend the MSA Iftar; volunteer for a day at a soup kitchen; help make or distribute flyers for a Ramadan program; make Ramadan Mubarak loot bags of candy for the kids at your local mosque.

The possibilities are numerous. Not eating Suhur and Iftar properly will make you crabby, irritated and sick as opposed to healthy, wealthy and wise. Establish a personal Ramadan meal plan. Send Ramadan e-cards, thoughts, reflections, questions, etc. Is a friend who lives nearby having problems with their spouse? Or is someone you know having money problems?

This Ramadan, reach out with an attentive ear, a generous hand, and most importantly, an open heart to others. Choose at least three goals to pursue this Ramadan. It takes 21 days to establish a good habit. Why not make the best of it by picking up the good? Al Baqara The Cow — Chapter 2: As a means par excellence to come nearer to God, to discipline the self, to develop the strength to overcome the temptations of flesh, it needs no emphasis.

This may sound like making things too simplistic, or trivializing the important. But Ramadan is no trivial event. It was on a night in Ramadan that the last Divine message began to come down: That is why we must fast in Ramadan, says the Quran. The significance is plain to see. More importantly, the fulfillment of being guided by the Quran comes about when we strive to discharge the mission it entrusts to us. This means an unflinching pursuit to create a new self within us, and to create a new world of Quranic ideals outside us.

This is the sole purpose for which a new Ummah was created and charged with the mission of bringing man to God by witnessing to His guidance. Otherwise, when the Quran came, the world was not devoid of godly men who fasted, and stood in prayers before God, and wept.

Fasting , Islam , Muslims , Quran , Ramadan , taqwa. Thus, whenever you do good or avoid evil for fear of God, in whatever sphere of life and field of activity, you are discharging your Islamic obligations. It is the prescribed daily Prayers which consist in repeating and refreshing five times a day the belief in which you repose your faith.

You get up early in the morning, cleanse yourself and present yourself before your Lord for Prayer. The various poses that you assume during your Prayers are the very embodiment of the spirit of submission; the various recitals remind you of your commitments to your God. You seek His guidance and ask Him again and again to enable you to avoid His wrath and follow His chosen path. You read out from the Book of the Lord and express witness to the truth of the Prophet peace be upon him and also refresh your belief in the Day of Judgment and enliven in your memory the fact that you have to appear before your Lord and give an account of your entire life.

This is how your day starts. You dissociate yourself from your worldly engagements for a few moments and seek audience with God. This once again brings to the fore of your mind your real role in life. After this rededication you revert to your occupations and again present yourself to the Lord after a few hours. This again acts as a reminder to you, and you once more refocus your attention on the stipulations of your faith.

When the sun sets and the darkness of the night begins to shroud you, you again submit yourself to God in Prayer so that you may not forget your duties and obligations in the midst of the approaching shadows of the night.

And then after a few hours you again appear before your Lord, and this is your last Prayer of the day. Thus before going to bed you once again renew your faith and prostrate before your God. And this is how you complete your day. The frequency and timings of the Prayers never let the object and mission of life be lost sight of in the maze of worldly activities. It is but easy to understand how the daily Prayers strengthen the foundations of your faith, prepare you for the observance of a life of virtue and obedience to God, and refresh that belief from which spring courage, sincerity, purposefulness, purity of heart, advancement of the soul, and enrichment of morals.

Now see how this is achieved: You perform ablution in the way prescribed by the Prophet peace be upon him. You also say your Prayers according to the instructions of the Prophet. Why do you do so? Simply because you believe in the prophethood of Muhammad peace be upon him and deem it your bounden duty to follow him ungrudgingly.

In the Prayers you recite many things quietly and if you do not recite them or make any deviation from them, there is no one to check you. But you never do so intentionally. Because you believe that God is Ever Watchful and that He listens to all that you recite and is aware of things open and hidden. What makes you say your Prayers at places where there is no one to ask you to offer them or even to see you offering them?

What makes you leave your important business and other occupations and rush towards the mosque for Prayers? What makes you terminate your sweet sleep in the early hours of the morning, to go to the mosque in the heat of the noon, and to leave your evening entertainments for the sake of Prayers?

Is it anything other than sense of duty—your realization that you must fulfill your responsibility to the Lord, come what may? And why are you afraid of any mistake in Prayer? Because your heart is filled with the fear of God and you know that you have to appear before Him on the Day of Judgment and give an account of your entire life. Can there be a better course of moral and spiritual training than Prayer? It is this training which makes a man a perfect Muslim.

It makes him follow the Prophet and trains him in the observance of his duties. He will abide by the law of God in the entire gamut of life in the same way as he follows it in the five Prayers every day. This man can be relied upon in other fields of activity as well, for if the shadows of sin or deceit approach him, he will try to avoid them for fear of the Lord that would be ever present in his heart. And if even after such a vital training a man misbehaves himself in other fields of life and disobeys the law of God, it can only be because of some intrinsic depravity of his self.

Then again you must say your Prayers in congregation and especially so the Friday Prayer. This creates among the Muslims a bond of love and mutual understanding. This arouses in them the sense of their collective unity and fosters among them national fraternity. All of them say their Prayers in one congregation and this inculcates in them a deep feeling of brotherhood.

Prayers are also a symbol of equality, for the poor and the rich, the low and the high, the rulers and the ruled, the educated and the unlettered, the black and the white all stand in one row and prostrate before their Lord.

Prayers also inculcate in Muslims a strong sense of discipline and obedience to the elected leader. In short, Prayers train them in all those virtues that make possible the development of a rich individual and collective life.

When we offer our salaat for getting reward from Allah, then why should it not be done in the musjid, where the reward earned is twenty-seven times more. Nobody will be so unwise as to forego a profit twenty-seven times greater with simply a little extra labour. But we are so indifferent about the profits promised for our religious practices! This can be due to nothing but our disregard for deen and the rewards of it. It is a pity that we apply ourselves so hard to acquiring the trifling gains in this material world; but are so unmindful of the gains in the Hereafter, which yield twenty-seven times more with a little extra effort.

We often argue that for going to the musjid for Jamaat we have to close the shop and will thus lose business. These pretexts and others of the kind cannot stand in the way of those who have perfect faith in the Greatness of Allah, and in His word; and who realize the value of the blessings and reward in the Hereafter.

It is in respect of such people that Allah says: It is said of Saalim Haddaad Rahmatullah alaih] a trader and a great Soofi that on hearing Azaan he would turn pale and grow restless. He would stand up immediately, leaving his shop open and recite these couplets: To respond to the summons of The Mighty Lord Who hath no peer. Nothing is more ravishing for me than Thy sweet name.

A lover is happy only when he is with his love. He must die yearning for Thee. It is said in a hadith: Angels are their companioris and visit them when they are sick and help them when they are at their jobs. O you who believe!

Observing al-sawm the fasting is prescribed for you as it was prescribed for those before you, that you may become al-muttaqoon the pious. A s the beautiful month of Ramadan approaches this year, there are several things Muslim women can do to prepare themselves spiritually and physically for the month-long period of fasting which is obligatory upon all able-bodied Muslims who have reached the age of maturity.

Giving some thought to the unique concerns that Muslim women face during this month can help us prepare for them and make the month a more successful one.

This is especially true for new converts to Islam because Ramadan is such a new experience and for married women in general because of the extra responsibility they typically have to make sure that the iftar the fast-breaking meal served at sunset each day is ready on time for their families and any guests in addition to continuing to take care of the home, children and other obligations as usual.

It is crucial, then, that women take the time to plan for their sleep, health and other concerns before the month even starts. It is recommended for Muslims to eat a pre-dawn meal called sahoor in Arabic each day before the fast begins.

The Prophet, may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, is reported by Anas may Allah be pleased with him to have said,. Other traditions report the Prophet peace be upon him as saying,. Verily, Allah and His angels pray for those who have pre-dawn meals. The pre-dawn meal provides energy and other benefits to the fasting Muslim during the day so it makes good sense to plan on getting up early to have sahoor.

Of course this is better accomplished if you also sleep early so try to think about how you will arrange your schedule once Ramadan begins. If you typically have trouble waking up for the fajr dawn prayer, a new schedule in Ramadan may be the motivation you need to change your habits for the better even after Ramadan has ended.

Ramadan is a great opportunity that comes once a year to renew your relationship and commitment to Allah. If you are accustomed to drinking tea or coffee in the morning or during the day, be aware that caffeine withdrawal can cause severe headaches while you are fasting. Take some time before Ramadan to wean yourself from caffeine perhaps gradually and decide whether it will be necessary to have any caffeine during the non-fasting hours in Ramadan.

It may seem like a funny thing to worry about compared to the greatness of this Holy Month but many Muslims have experienced the phenomena of caffeine withdrawal and know to prepare themselves ahead of time to ensure they do not get sick from it.

Women should also know the times that they are prohibited from fasting, such as when they are menstruating or bleeding after childbirth. Pregnant and breastfeeding women have special permission not to fast during Ramadan if they feel that they or their babies will be harmed by it, but they are not prohibited from fasting if they feel they can handle it.

However, it is very important that pregnant and breastfeeding women take care to eat properly during non-fasting hours if they choose to fast. In fact this allowance not to fast should be considered a mercy from Allah and not a punishment.

In it, the gates of Paradise are opened, and in it, the gates of Hell are locked, and the devils are enchained. In it is the beneficent night of a thousand months i. Whoever denies goodness in it has indeed been deprived. Some of the many important lessons we learn from Ramadan are: Fasting has been legislated in order that we may gain taqwa, as Allah — the Most High — said: Fasting is prescribed for you, as it was prescribed upon those before you in order that you may attain taqwa.

The Prophet peace and blessings be upon him said: Ahmad, authenticated by al-Albani in Saheeh ut-Targheeb. So we should ask ourselves, after each day of fasting: Has this fasting made us more fearful and obedient to Allah? Has it aided us in distancing ourselves from sins and disobedience? What is meant by the month of Patience is the month of Ramadan …so fasting is called patience because it restrains the soul from eating drinking, conjugal relations and sexual desires.

The Prophet Muhammad peace and blessings be upon him said: Whoever amongst you is able to marry, then let him do so; for it restrains the eyes and protects the private parts. But whoever is unable, then let him fast, because it will be a shield for him. So fasting is a means of learning self-restraint and patience.

So — for example — with patience we are able to perform our Prayers calmly and correctly, without being hasty, and without merely pecking the ground several times! With patience we are able to restrain our souls from greed and stinginess and thus give part of our surplus wealth in Zakaah obligatory charity. Likewise, with patience we are able to stand firm and fight Jihad against the disbelievers, hypocrites and heretics — withstanding their constant onslaught, without wavering and buckling, without despairing or being complacent, and without becoming hasty and impatient at the first sings of hardship.

Allah — the Most High — said: And Allah is with the patient ones. Thus, without knowledge and patience, nothing remains, except zeal and uncontrolled emotions, shouts and hollow slogans, speech that does not strengthen, but rather weakness, and actions that do not build, but rather destroy! Fasting is not merely abstaining from eating and drinking.

Rather, it is also abstaining from ignorant and indecent speech. So if anyone abuses or behaves ignorantly with you, then say: I am fasting, I am fasting.

Ibn Khuzaymah and al-Haakim, who authenticated it. There are many ahadith mentioning the blessings of breaking the fast together and there is also much reward in feeding a fasting person. So let us unite in this month of Mercy. So Ramadan — it is that light in the souls of the righteous and the truthful, and in the hearts of the devout and sincere it gives happiness; for it is the month of obedience, and in it there are beautiful reflections for us all.

Indeed, it grants victory to the soul over the body and flesh and gives us a wonderful opportunity to straighten ourselves up with our Lord. We should also try to purify our hearts and intentions before the commencement of Ramadan to make this fast successful for our families and ourselves.

Ramadan is also an opportunity to renew relationships that may have been broken during the year and we should try and clear up any disputes or bad feelings with other Muslims so we may start this month a fresh.

So we ask Allah to grant us the ability to change ourselves for the better, during this blessed month, and not to be of those who are prevented from His Mercy and Forgiveness. A lot of us yearn to prepare for Ramadan, but we have no idea how to start.

Simple to do and has a powerful impact. The point is that preparing for Ramadan does not have to be some magnificent, enormous, extra-special thing that needs to be done at a certain time of the day.

Do these easy-to-reap-reward actions: Asking Allah to forgive your brothers and sisters. It was narrated that Abu Hurayrah r. Narrated by Muslim Remember Allah when you go shopping: To help condition your heart for this blessed month, intensify your worship before Ramadan begins. Just a small, consistent amount is enough. The Prophet, sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam told us: For example, if I always pray 2 rakats of sunnah after ishaa, from this day until Ramadan begins- and even through Ramadan, let me make the intention that I will now pray 2 extra rakats of sunnah after ishaa.

And every time I pray these extra 2 rakats, which are more than what I normally pray, let me remember that I am doing these with the intention of asking Allah to help me be prepared to strive and exert my utmost effort during Ramadan.

Make a duaa list today. Let us not wait until the last 10 nights to make special duaas, and then once Eid passes realize that we had completely forgotten about fifty other things we needed to make duaa for. Let us start making our lists now, and add to it as more things come our way. Write out your objectives for Ramadan. Praying all of your fard prayers? Praying all of your sunnahs? Making itikaaf in the masjid? Sincerely turning completely back to Allah?

Write out a list, put them somewhere you will see them, and make duaa for your success in fulfilling these objectives.

Look at your objectives, and try to make a plan on how to actualize those objectives in this month. For example, perhaps you are really struggling to pray your sunnah prayers. In this month, realize the enormity of the ajr of praying the sunnah prayers… think that perhaps these sunnahs will be the deeds that will be so heavy on your scale of good deeds when you are intense need of them- on yowm al qiyamah day of judgement.

Therefore, fight to keep doing them all throughout Ramadan. Pray all of my fard prayers. Make sure to pray sunnah salah immediately after salah. Make sure you understand it. So many people have not made it to Ramadan this year. Last year was their very last Ramadan. Will you make it to this Ramadan? Will this be your last Ramadan? Aim to strive in this Ramadan.

With a very small amount of effort, such as just making a small intention, or adding a few extra acts of worship, we pray that Allah will help our hearts soften and honor us with making it easy to turn to Him and open up to Him. May Allah make us of the successful in Ramadan, and make it easy for us to turn to Him completely and perpetually. Imam Malik dutifully stood up once again and began praying the 2 rakas. The students sat stunned: What was going on? After he had completed the salah, the students swarmed around and questioned his actions.

I merely feared that had I not prayed the 2 rakas as the young boy commanded, Allah may include me in the Ayah…. Imam Ahmad held the opinion that eating camel meat nullifies ones Wudhu, an opinion that the majority of scholars differed from.

Allah created humans with differences. It is the law of creation. Different tongues, different colors, different cultures…all that on the outside. On the inside, humans were created with many degrees of knowledge, intellect, and comprehension of concepts.

Humans shall differ, that is not the issue. How as a Muslim should one confront these differences of opinions and what should be our relationship with someone of a different opinion. In fact, in the very same verse where Allah commanded us to call and advise people in this Deen, Allah taught us how to do it. Read the following verse carefully: There is no need to philosophize. No need to talk in the flower gardens. It is right there, plain and simple for anyone who would take heed.

There in that Ayah are the three ingredients to apply when we disagree with someone. The same Allah that taught us to debate the truth, taught us how to do it: What does it mean to have Hikmah when differing with someone? The grandsons of Rasul Allah saw once set one of the most beautiful examples of Hikmah in advising others. Al-Hasan and Al-Husayn — in their young age — once saw a senior man performing Wudu incorrectly. Together they arranged a plan to teach the man without insulting him, advising him in a manner befitting of his age.

Would you mind being the judge to determine which one of us indeed performs Wudu more correctly. The man watched intently as the two grandsons of Rasul Allah performed Wudu in an explicit manner. You have both taught me how to do it correctly. We must understand that there are two dimensions to Hikmah. Firstly, there is the Hikmah of knowledge — Hikmah Ilmiyyah. And secondly, there is the Hikmah of Action — Hikmah Amaliyyah. Some people may have Hikmah of knowledge. But we see that when they try correcting others, advising them, they lack the Hikmah of Action.

This causes many a common folk to reject the Hikmah of knowledge. To illustrate this hikmah of knowledge without Hikmah of action, a brother once completed the Salah in a local Masjid and then proceeded to shake hands with the people on his right and left.

To show Hikmah when we differ requires the following: If we differ, our intentions should be that we are differing in the sincere hope of coming away with the truth.

Our intentions should be sincere to Allah. We should not differ just to release some hate or envy in our heart.
