    Factors which do not nullify the Fast

    1. To eat or drink unintentionally, in a state of forgetfulness.
    2. To swallow a particle of dust, a fly, or a mosquito.
    3. Falling of water into the ear at the time of taking a bath.
    4. To vomit involuntarily, even a mouthful.
    5. To insert medicine into the eyes.
    6. To experience seminal discharge while sleeping during the day.
    7. To swallow a particle from the crevices of the teeth which is smaller in quantity than a gram (chana).

    While in a state of fasting if one applies antimony (soormah) to the eyes, massages oil on the head or body, makes use of the miswak, smells perfume etc. it will neither nullify the fast nor render it defective.
    Hadrat Anas Radi ALLAH Taala Anhu reported that the Messenger of Allah Peace And Blessings Be Upon Him has said, “Everything has a heart, and the heart of the Qur’an is Yasin. Allah records anyone who recites Yasin as having recited the Qur’an ten times.”

    Factors which nullify the Fast

    The following acts will nullify the fast :

    1. When water enters the gullet while gargling.
    2. When water enters the grey matter of the brain at the time of inserting it in the nose.
    3. When a person vomit's intentionally a mouthful of food, blood, bile, etc.
    4. Swallowing from a mouthful of involuntary vomit in quantity of a gram or more.
    5. Swallowing food from the crevices of the teeth in quantity of a gram.
    6. Inserting medicine in the nose.
    7. Inserting medicine or oil in the ears.
    8. To take an enema.
    9. To indulge in sensual activities forgetfully at the time of dawn.
    10. Seminal discharge due to passionate fondling and kissing.
    11. To smoke cigarette, cigar, hookkah, etc.
    12. Chewing betel-leaf, even though its discharge is spat out and does not reach the throat.


    If all the above factors take place in a conscious state of fasting, the fast will be nullified and its re-observance will be compulsory.

    13. Blood from the teeth enters the throat. If the saliva content is greater than the blood, the fast will not be nullified, but if the blood content is greater, the fast will be nullified.
    14. Swallowing coloured saliva as a result of placing coloured string in the mouth.
    15. Taking snuff in the mouth, etc.



    Religious issue's :
    If one inserts drops of oil in the ear, or inserts medicine for a wound on the membrane of the brain which reaches the brain, or to take in medicine through the nose or through a clyster, or swallow a stone, pebble, cotton, paper, grass, etc. which is distasteful to people, or to remain in the month of Ramadan as if in a state of Fasting without having recited its niyyat, or eating after having recited the niyyat of fasting in the morning or before zenith time (zawwal), or reciting the niyyat of fasting but not for the fast of Ramadan, or if drops of rain or hail, or swallowed many drops of tears or sweat only Qaza of the fast is necessary not the Kaffarah- (expiation).


    Fast does not break by taking an injection. However, if the medicine being taken by injection gives strength to the body via the brain and stomach then such an injection would break the fast. If food or medicine is fed intravenously to the brain or the stomach, the fast will break.


    If the person does not stop eating or does not abstain from sensual activities after remembering that he is fasting or continues eating and drinking after the time of Sehri in the month of Ramadan, his fast will be nullified. He will have to re-observe the fast and give Kaffarah. Similarly those who are in the habit of smoking cigarettes, etc. and do this while they are fasting, their fasts will be nullified for which Qaza (repitition of fasts) and Kaffarah (expiation) will be incumbent upon them.
    Hadrat Anas Radi ALLAH Taala Anhu reported that the Messenger of Allah Peace And Blessings Be Upon Him has said, “Everything has a heart, and the heart of the Qur’an is Yasin. Allah records anyone who recites Yasin as having recited the Qur’an ten times.”

    Iftaar

    To make haste in breaking the fast is Sunnat and a means of obtaining blessing from Allah Almighty. One should break ones fast when one thinks the sun has set. However, one must not be too hasty on an overcast day. Iftaar should be made before performing Maghrib Salah. Iftaar should be made with dates and if this is not available, with water. After Iftaar one should not waste unnecessary time eating and delay the Maghrib Salah. Men should not miss the Jama'at (congregation) because of eating.
    Hadrat Anas Radi ALLAH Taala Anhu reported that the Messenger of Allah Peace And Blessings Be Upon Him has said, “Everything has a heart, and the heart of the Qur’an is Yasin. Allah records anyone who recites Yasin as having recited the Qur’an ten times.”

    Dua for ending the Fast :


    At the time of Iftaar read the following dua :

    Allah Humma inni Laka Soom-Tu wah Bikka aa-Mantu wa-Ilayka Tawak' Kalto,
    Wah Ala Rizke-Ka Af-Tar-tu Fahtaqab al-Minnee


    "Oh Allah I have fasted for You, believed in You, relied on You, and with your sustenance i break it. Therefore forgive me my past and future sins."
    Hadrat Anas Radi ALLAH Taala Anhu reported that the Messenger of Allah Peace And Blessings Be Upon Him has said, “Everything has a heart, and the heart of the Qur’an is Yasin. Allah records anyone who recites Yasin as having recited the Qur’an ten times.”

    Laws pertaining to Taraweeh Prayer


    To offer twenty Rakaats of Taraweeh Prayer on each night of Ramadan is Sunnat al-Mu'akkidah on every healthy male and female. Our Beloved Nabi Salla Allahu Alayhi wa Sallam said :


    " The one who offers Taraweeh Prayer at night during Ramadan with complete faith and devotion only for the recompense of the Hereafter will have all his previous sins forgotten by Allah " (Bukhari Shareef).


    Abdur Rahman bin Ouf RadiAllahu'anhu reports that Rasoolullah Salla Allahu Alayhi wa Sallam said:
    "Verily Allah has made the fast of Ramadan compulsory upon you, and I have made its Salah (at night) Sunnat for you. Therefore, whosoever fasts and performs Taraweeh in this month with faith and hope for reward, emerges from his sins like the day he was born." (Nasaai 239/1)

    This Hadith proves that Taraweeh is the Sunnat of Rasoolullah Salla Allahu Alayhi wa Sallam. In addition to this verbal injunction of The Beloved Prophet Salla Allahu Alayhi wa Sallam we also have his practice on the Taraweeh Salah, which further emphasises the Sunnat nature of Taraweeh.



    Women should offer this prayer at home, while for men to offer it in the Mosque in congregation is Sunnat-e-Kefaya. Intention should be made for the Sunnat of Taraweeh. The time for Taraweeh Prayer starts after Isha Salah and lasts till the break of dawn. It should be offered after the Fard and Sunnat of Isha, but before the Witr Salah. After every four Rakaats it is Mustahab (desirable) to sit for a duration to recite this Tasbeeh three times :


    " All Glory and Perfection belong to Allah and free is He (from all defects), the Sovereign of the Seen and the Unseen Kingdom. All Glory and Perfection is due to Allah and free is the Lord's Might, Greatness, Reverence, Power, Majesty and Omnipotence from all defects. All Glory and Perfection belong to Him and Free is He the Sovereign who does not sleep neither die from all defects. He is verily the all Gracious and the most Holy, the all perfect, the Lord of the Spirit and Angels. "


    " Subhaana Dhil-Mulke w'al-Ma'lakoot, Subhaana Dhil-izate w'al-Azamate w'al-Haybate w'al-Qudrate w'al-Kibriyaa-ai w'al-Jaba'root, Subhaa'nal ma-li-kil Hayyil'Ladhi La'Yanaa-mu Wa'la yamootu Subbu Hun Quddu-sun Rab'onaa wa-Rabbul ma-'Laa'-i-kati War'ruh, Alla-Humma A'Jirnaa Mi'Nan'naar, Yaa Mujeero Ya Mujeero Ya Mujeer.


    If one is unable to recite the above then he should glorify Allah Almighty, recite Durood Shareef and offer a du'a.


    Miscellaneous Issues


    1. If Taraweeh Prayer is offered in congregation at home one will receive the reward of Jama'at, but will be deprived of the reward of the Mosque.
    2. It is permissable to offer Taraweeh Parayer in another Mosque other than the Mosque in one's own area if the entire Qur'an Shareef is not recited in your own Mosque, provided the Imam there recites the Qur'an correctly and sweetly and is of correct Sunni beliefs.
    3. If the Imam of your area is not of the beliefs of the Ahl as-Sunnat w'al Jama'at, it is imperative that you should perform Taraweeh in another Mosque.
    4. It is commendable to perform your entire Taraweeh behind one Imam.
    5. If a person has not offered his Isha Salah in congregation, then it is Makrooh (undesirable) for him to offer his Witr Salah in congregation, although if he does so his Witr will be accepted.
    Hadrat Anas Radi ALLAH Taala Anhu reported that the Messenger of Allah Peace And Blessings Be Upon Him has said, “Everything has a heart, and the heart of the Qur’an is Yasin. Allah records anyone who recites Yasin as having recited the Qur’an ten times.”

    I'tikaaf - if you think about it deeply and if it is done perfectly it is a most positive and hygienic act. Staying in the mosque for ten days spending time in worship, reading al Qur'an, positive thinking of Allah and His creation charges our spirits and empowers our bodies and thinking and teaches us how to be self-disciplined and have full control over ourselves.

    How to measure out the real value of life and to make sure that we are on the right track, to shake off the dust of sins of our souls, to enrich and deepen our spiritual sense, to sharpen our vision, to look forward towards Life After before it is eminent for us. I'tikaaf does not mean to be negative to perform your duties in life or to run away from people and live by your own. This is not in any sense the aims of i'tikaaf.

    As you know not all Muslims are able to do i'tikaaf but some of them do, and it is done inside the mosque so you are still with Muslims not away from them. You have a spiritual and hygienic environment around yourself, you are not isolated or neglected. If i'tikaaf can affect your living standard or affect the work in general or harm the society in any way it is not obligatory to do it in this case.

    I'tikaaf can provide you with great happiness, tranquility, stability in mind and soul with hardly little cost.


    Laws pertaining to I'tikaaf


    To sit for I'tikaaf from the Asr Salah of 20th Ramadan until the Eid moon is sighted is Sunnat-e-Mu'akkidah Kefaye e.g. if only one person from the entire city or an area sits for I'tikaaf the rest of the people of that place will be relieved of their responsiblity, though they will be deprived of its rewards, but will not be regarded as omitters of this particular Sunnat.

    1. One must sit for I'tikaaf in such a Mosque wherein the Five Daily Prayers are offered.
    2. It is unlawful to leave the Mosque or its precints after having made the intention for I'tikaaf unless for relieving oneself or for religious necessities.
    3. Human wants will include relieving oneself of urine or stool, to take a bath, if it is necessary, Istinja and Wudu.
    4. If there is no one to bring food to him it would be permissable for him to bring his food from home. It is better for him to take the food to the Masjid and eat it there.
    5. Religious needs will include going for Jum'ah Prayer to the central Mosque if Jum'ah is not offered in the Mosque in which he is sitting for I'tikaaf. In this case he should go to the Mosque at such a time which would allow him to offer his four Rakaats Sunnat, listen to the two Khutbah's, offer the two Rakaats Fard in congregation, offer his six Rakaats after Fard and immediately return to his Mosque. It is Makrooh for him to leave the precints of the Mosque without any valid reason. While in I'tikaaf he can eat, drink, sleep, read or teach from religous books, explain religious issues, talk on the lives and incidents of the Prophet's and Saints (Wali) of Allah in the Mosque.
    Hadrat Anas Radi ALLAH Taala Anhu reported that the Messenger of Allah Peace And Blessings Be Upon Him has said, “Everything has a heart, and the heart of the Qur’an is Yasin. Allah records anyone who recites Yasin as having recited the Qur’an ten times.”

    Laylat al-Qadr - The Night of Power


    Laylat al-Qadr enjoys superiority over all the nights of the year. This night should be sought in one of the odd nights of the last nine/ten nights of Ramadan. According to most narrations it falls on the 27th night of Ramadan. Surah al-Qadr has hinted towards it in that "Laylat al-Qadr" has 9 letters in which Laylat al-Qadr is repeated thrice. Thus if you multiply 9 by 3 you will get 27. According to Imam al-A'zam Abu Hanifa (Radi Allahu' Anhu) Laylat al-Qadr in most instances falls on the 27th night of Ramadan, though it is most certainly in the last nine/ten odd nights of this blessed month. On this blessed night especially the Mercy and Blessings of Allah pour upon the earth in great abundance.


    Therefore, one should keep oneself engaged in the recitation of the Glorious and Noble Qur'an, in Dhikrullah (Zikr) in reciting Durood Shareef and Istighfaar. Offer as many Nafl Rakaats as you possibly can. Recite the following Wazeefah in abundance as it was taught to Hadrat Ayesha RadiAllahu' Anha) by the Beloved Prophet Salla Allahu ta'ala alayhi wa Sallam :
    " O Allah ! You are forgiving, and you love forgiveness, So forgive me. "

    " Allah-humma innaka Afuwwun-tuh, ibbul Afwa fa-fu Annee "

    (Timidhi Shareef)
    Because its exact night is not mentioned in any Hadith Shareef, the Companions of the Beloved Prophet Salla Allahu Alayhi wa Sallam and the learned scholars have according to their own estimation mentioned different nights for it from the last nine/ten odd nights of Ramadan.


    The reason for calling it Laylat al-Qadr is because the sincere worship of a believer in this night is better than the worship of a thousand months.
    Hadrat Ali (Radi Allahu' Anhu) states that on the Night of Power any person who after Isha Prayer recites Surah al-Qadr seven times, Allah will protect him from all calamites and 70 thousand angels will pray for Jannat for him. If a person on a Friday recites this Surah three times before the Jum'ah Prayer, Allah Almighty will enter in his Book of Deeds rewards for him equal to the people who have offered Jum'ah Namaaz on that day.

    Some scholars have written that if any person who on the night of Qadr offers Four Rakaats Nafl in the following manner : After Surah Fateha recites Surah Takathur once and Surah Ikhlaas three times, Allah Almighty will ease for him the pangs of death, remove from him the punishment of the grave and grant him numerous mansions in Paradise.

    It is stated in one Hadith Shareef that on the Night of Qadr groups of Angels descend upon the earth one after the other. Hadrat Jibrael Alayhis Sallam too descends. These angels bring with them four flags : one is set up on the Roza al-Mubarak (shrine) of our Most Beloved Prophet (Salla Allahu ta'ala alayhi wa Sallam) one is placed on the Ka'bah, the third on Bait al-Muqaddas and the fourth on Mount Sinai. They then enter the homes of every Muslim male and female and extend greetings to them. But the habitual alcoholic, those who consume pork, and those who cut off relationship with their fellow Muslims are deprived of these greetings. Other angels too greet all those are engaged in the remembrance of Allah Almighty.
    Hadrat Anas Radi ALLAH Taala Anhu reported that the Messenger of Allah Peace And Blessings Be Upon Him has said, “Everything has a heart, and the heart of the Qur’an is Yasin. Allah records anyone who recites Yasin as having recited the Qur’an ten times.”

    What to pray ?

    Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem


    Laylat al qadr is the most excellent night of the whole year, it is better then a thousand months, one nights worship is equivalent to the worship of a life time. The night occurs during one of the odd nights of the last ten days of Ramadan, most likely to be on the 27th Ramadan.



    The Most Beloved of Allah, Huzur Nabi Salla Allahu ta'ala 'alayhi wa Sallam said ''People who won't be able to benefit on this blessed night are listed as follows, unless these people ask for forgiveness for their sins : Muslim enemies, people who don't give zakaat and encourage people not to either, people who break relationships, laugh at the facts of the grave, people who back bite, being lazy to pray salaat, not talking to a muslim brother for more than three days, including haram, shirk, kufar, nazayess.''



    On this blessed night pray the follwoing: the Qur'an al kareem, nafil salaat, tasbih, du'as, astagfar, kalma-e tamjid, Surah ikhlas and plenty of darood shareef as often as you can. Whoever prays by heart "Laa elaahaa el-lal laahu Muham-madur rasulul-laah" by praying first time you will be clean of sins, praying second time you will be clear of hell, and praying third time you will be accepted in Paradise. It is quoted in the Hadith sharif that whoever prays from the heart and with intention, will be forgiven for all their sins.



    Huzur Nabi-e-paak Salla Allahu ta'ala 'alayhi wa Sallam said on the night of Laylat aI qadr you must pray this du'a as much as possible:

    " ALLAAHUMMA INNAKA AFUWUN TUHIBBUL AFWA F-AFL' ANNAA"

    (0 Allah, you are the one who grants pardon for sins, you love to pardon so pardon us)

    Astagfar:


    '' ASTAG FIRULLAA HULLAZI LAA-E-LAAHAA ILLAA HUWAL HAIYUL KAIYUM V-A-TUBU ILAIH''

    (I seek forgiveness from Allah, the Almighty, there is no god but He,
    He is the Self-existent, the eternal and I turn to Him)




    Whoever on this night prays :


    "Innaa anzalnaahu fee lailatil qadr. Wa maa adraaka maalailatul qadr. LailatuI qadri khairum min alfi shahr. Tanazalul malaa ikatu varroohu fee haa bi-izni rabbihim min kulli amr. Salaamun heeyaa hattaa matlaeel fajr."


    If they pray ''Innaa anzalnaahu'' (above) 700, or 70, or 7 times at least, Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala will forgive that person's sins, save them from all their troubles and ghosts, also 70,000 angels will pray for that person to go to Jannat (Paradise).





    Nafil Salaat :

    * Pray four rakats nafil salaat, in every rakat after ALHAMDU SHARIF (Surah Fateha) pray INNAA ANZALNAHU three times, and KULHUVLLAH SHARIF (surah ikhlas) seven times, this will decrease the pains and agonies of death, and will protect you from the torments of the grave.



    * Pray four rakats nafil salaat, in every rakat after ALHA MDU SHARIF pray INNAA ANZALNAHU once and KULHUVLLAH SHARIF 27 times, Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala will forgive your sins.



    * Pray two rakats nafil salaat, in every rakat after ALHAMDU SHARIF pray INNA ANZALNAHU seven times KULHUVLLAH SHARIF seven times, then pray Astagfar and Darood shareef, Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala will forgive you and your parents.



    * Pray four rakats nafil salaat, in every rakat after ALHAMDU SHARIF pray INNAA ANZALNAHU three times KULHUVLLAH SHARIF five times, and after salaat pray Kalma-e tamjid 41 times, Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala will accept all your du'as.



    * Pray 20 rakats nafil salaat with intervals after every two rakats, in every rakat after ALHAMDU SHARIF Pray KULHUVLLAH SHARIF 21 times, you will be clean of all your sins, as if you were just born.


    * Pray 20 rakats nafil salaat with intervals after every two rakats, in every rakat after ALHAMDU SHARIF pray AAYTUL KURSI three times and KULHUVLLAH SHARIF 25 times, after salaat pray KALMA-E TAMJID 100 times, you will get Haj-e makbul's thawaab.




    * Pray 10 rakats nafil salaat with intervals after every two rakats, in every rakat after ALHAMDU SHARIF pray KULHUVLLAH SHARIF 3 times, after namaz pray Darood shareef 11 times and Du'a, you will get lots of thawaab.



    * Pray 10 rakats nafil salaat with intervals after every two rakats, in every rakat after ALHAMDU SHARIF pray any surah, then make your du'as, Insha-Allah they will be accepted.



    * Pray 12 rakats nafil salaat with intervals after every two rakats, in every rakat after ALHAMDU SHARIF pray KULHUVLLAH SHARIF five times, you will get lots of thawaab.



    * Pray 2 rakats nafil salaat, in every rakat after ALHAMDU SHARIF, pray KULHUVLLAH SHARIF seven times, after salaat pray darood shareef 100 times and Astagfar 100 times, you will get lots of thawaab.



    * Pray four rakats nafil salaat, in every rakat after ALHAMDU SHARIF pray ALHA KUMUT-TAKAASUR once and KULHUVLLAH SHARIF three times, this will avoid problems, and will protect you from the torments of the grave.



    * Pray 2 rakats nafil salaat, In every rakat after ALHAMDU SHARIF, pray KULHUVLLAH SHARIF seven times, after salaat pray astagfar 70 times, before you get up from your prayer mat Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala will forgive your sins and your parents sins and Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala will say to the angels to make sweet (meva) trees in Jannat as well as make you a palace. Until you will not see this in your dream you will not die.


    Subhaana rabbika rabbil ezzati ammaa yasifun va salaamun al-l mursalin,
    val hamdu lil-laahi rabbil aalamin


    May Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala make all your Du'as come true. (Aamin)
    Hadrat Anas Radi ALLAH Taala Anhu reported that the Messenger of Allah Peace And Blessings Be Upon Him has said, “Everything has a heart, and the heart of the Qur’an is Yasin. Allah records anyone who recites Yasin as having recited the Qur’an ten times.”

    Laylat al-Qadr - The most precious and virtuous Night


    Nights are the time which Allah 'azza wa jall has designated for the attainment of spiritual blessing and power. Allah told His Beloved in the Qur'an al-kareem: ''Rise to pray in the night except a little'' (73:1)

    Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala ordered the Beloved Prophet (Salla Allahu ta'ala 'alayhi wa aalihi wa Sallam) to spend most of the night in worship in order to prepare his heart for the tremendous revelation of Qur'an al kareem. This night worship was the means for the Beloved Prophet (Salla Allahu ta'ala 'alayhi wa aalihi wa Sallam) to ascend and to attain more and more power. His Companions would join him for the night prayer and would be rising up in station and spirituality:


    ''Surely We will make to descend on you a weighty Word. Surely the rising by night is the firmest way to tread and the best corrective of speech'' (al Qur'an 73, 1-5)

    Laylat al-Qadr is a holy night. All nights of Ramadan are holy nights but Laylat al-Qadr is the holiest night of this most holy month. It is also the holiest night among all other holy nights throughout the entire year. It comes only once a year and Allah Almighty grants to His most praised, most respected and most beloved servant Sayyadina Muhammad (Salla Allahu ta'ala 'alayhi wa aalihi wa Sallam) this holy night, the Night of Power. About this night, God, the Glorious and Exalted said:


    In the name of God, the Beneficent the Merciful
    Indeed We sent it [al-Qur'an] down on the Night of Power.
    What will convey to you what the Night of Power is like!
    Better is the Night of Power than a thousand months
    in that Night the angels and the Spirit descend
    by the permission of their Lord for every affair.
    Peace it is, till the break of dawn.
    [al-Qur'an, Chapter 97]
    "Night of Power" is a very strange translation for "Laylat al-Qadr" but it attributes to it a good meaning: whoever may attain the blessings of this holy night should attain perfect power in his spiritual life. One can attain perfect power by means of this night because its value is more than one thousand months of worshipping. Every worship performed increases the spiritual power of people and in this night any worship is going to be valued as one thousand months of worshipping on any other night. It is condensed power. God, the Almighty, makes it a mighty night by placing in it such incredible power, making it a much mightier night than other nights. Allah Almighty says it is much more valuble than one thousand months of worshipping. That means Allah Almighty granted such huge power to that night.

    It is just such a mighty night which is highly respected and given such a high value by the Lord Almighty. It is so mighty that it is said that it is the most mighty night, that Night of Power. Allah Almighty puts in it power for His servants to come closer to His Divine Presence. In a short time a that great power adorns worshippers in this night and they may be able to penetrate through the entire heavens and reach the Divine Presence.

    People on this night are going to be on several different levels. No doubt we are on the lowest level, so we are hoping in this night to attain the honor and illumination granted in it. When we reach a higher level and as it is a holy night in the heavens as well, we will begin to sense something [of the great power being manifested] on this night. Whoever is at the highest spiritual level must be present for this night in the Divine Presence of the Lord.

    That appearance will occur in a matter of seconds, perhaps within a single second. Perhaps one second is an enormous unit of time [in comparison] to that moment. It may be more than a second or much less, but it is an instant in time when an appearance from Divine Presence is manifested to creation. When that Divine Appearance manifests (Ar. tajalli), no one will remain standing throughout the heavens and the earth. Everything falls into prostration, throwing themselves down in prostration for that moment. That manifestation of Divine Power--that Divine Light--appears, and whoever is prepared and who has also been invited to attend that appearance sees it and falls in prostration. Everything in that moment falls in prostration (Ar. sajda): all animals--even ants, even elephants, even giraffes, even dogs--on that night they are not sleeping but are hurrying to make prostration on experiencing that divine manifestation. All trees-- even buildings--bow down in prostration and then rise up to their original positions. This is mentioned in Qur'an:


    'And unto Allah falleth prostrate whosoever is in the heavens and the earth, willingly or unwillingly, as do their shadows in the morning and the evening hours'. (ar-R'ad, 15)

    and


    'Hast thou not seen that unto Allah payeth adoration whosoever is in the heavens and whosoever is in the earth, and the sun, and the moon, and the stars, and the hills, and the trees, and the beasts, and many of mankind, while there are many unto whom the doom is justly due. He whom Allah scorneth, there is none to give him honour. Lo! Allah doeth what He will'. (al-Hajj, 18)

    May God forgive us because we are sinners. Every few minutes, or even every few seconds we commit so many sins, thus we are in need of our Lord's forgiveness for the honor of His Most Praised Servant Sayyadina Muhammad, peace and blessings of God be upon him. This holiest of nights is granted to him from his Lord Almighty Allah. In it all powers adorn him, all lights illuminate him and all angels come to him. the Archangel Gabriel comes to him, and he is dressed with countless honors on this holy night. The angels ask forgiveness [from Allah for people] for the sake of the master of humanity (Sayyad al Bashar), to the Owner of creation (Rabb al-Ka'inat).

    For his honour, may God forgive us and take away our bad states. May Allah change our conditions from bad to good and change everything in us to be for His Sake. May we be good servants, obedient servants, beloved servants, respected servants, praised servants. Try to be servants such as this. For that reason, attend humbly to worship on that night as our Beloved Prophet (Salla Allahu ta'ala 'alayhi wa aalihi wa Sallam) directed us:


    "Whosoever offers voluntary prayers during the Night of Power out of belief and expecting from Allah its reward will have his past sins forgiven." [Bukhari and Muslim]

    Now I would like to pray the Prayer of Recollection (salat ul-tasabih) to express a little bit of praising from our side to glorify our Lord Almighty Allah. That glorifying Allah Almighty in salat ul-tasabih consists four cycles of prayer (raka'ats) in which we are glorify our Lord 300 times by saying "Glory be to God, all praise be to God, there is no god but the One God Allah, God is Most Great!" (Ar. "Subhanallahi wal hamdulillahi wa la ilaha illa Allahu wa Allahu Akbar." May Allah Almighty glorify His beloved and most praised servant, Sayyadina Muhammad (Salla Allahu ta'ala 'alayhi wa aalihi wa Sallam), and may mercy from His endless mercy oceans fall on you, and fall on our descendents, and fall on our ancestors, fall upon east and west, and may its blessing fall upon all from North to South, upon all oceans and upon all continents.

    Allah Allah...Karim Allah...Aziz Allah...Subhan Allah...Sultan Allah, Oh our Lord You are the only Sultan. Raise up Your Work and bring down the work of destructive disbelief and evil which seeks to harm Your human beings and all other creations by means of a destined appointed and authorized sultan from your Divine Presence.

    Bihurmat al habeeb wa bi hurmat al fatiha.

    [for the sake of the Beloved, for his sake we recite the Opening Chapter of al-Qur'an]
    Hadrat Anas Radi ALLAH Taala Anhu reported that the Messenger of Allah Peace And Blessings Be Upon Him has said, “Everything has a heart, and the heart of the Qur’an is Yasin. Allah records anyone who recites Yasin as having recited the Qur’an ten times.”

    Last Friday of Ramadan


    Our Beloved Prophet, the Prince of the Universe, the Light Personified Salla Allahu Alayhi wa Sallam said that Friday is the Prince of all days and more blessed than all the days. He who spends this day in worship, and in devotional prayers, Allah Almighty will protect him from the calamites of the entire week. In another Hadith Shareef it is stated : " Friday is the Day of Eid for the Believers. " There are many similarities of deeds between Friday and Eid. On Friday it is Sunnat to take a Ghusal, wear clean clothes and apply perfume, all of which are Sunnat on the day of Eid as well. On both these days two Rakaats Namaaz are offered congregationally, on both these days congregation and Khutbahs are incumbent. There is no Qaza for Jum'ah Prayer nor for Eid Prayer. If a person misses Jama'at for the Friday Prayer he cannot read this on his own. If Jum'ah is missed the person has to offer Dho'har (Zohr) Namaaz instead. The Noble Qur'an has mentioned the laws pertaining pertaining to Friday in Surah 'Jumuah'. The Beloved Prophet Salla Allahu Alayhi wa Sallam said there comes a moment on Friday during which every du'a made is accepted. The Beloved Prophet Salla Allahu Alayhi wa Sallam also said that the one who comes first to the Mosque for Friday Namaaz receives the reward of the charity of a camel, the second person will be rewarded with the charity of a cow, the third will receive the reward of a sheep, the fourth the charity of a chicken, the fifith charity of an egg. When the Khateeb (Imam) stands on the Mimbar to recite the Khutbah, Angels enter the Mosque to listen to him. The above reward is only for going early to the Mosque, while the reward for the Namaaz is different and in abundance. The Beloved Prophet Salla Allahu Alayhi wa Sallam said that Allah Almighty forgives the sins commited between two Fridays of the one who performs his Friday Namaaz regularly.


    While the Friday of any week is a source of blessings, mercy, forgiveness and salavation for the Believers, the Last Friday of Ramadan popularly known as 'Jummat'al-Wida', is light upon light and felicitation of the Noble Qur'an. It is the symbol of splendour, dignity and greatness for the Believers. It is a supreme expression of awe and majesty. On this day people walk towards the Central Mosque proclaiming the Glory and Praise of Almighty Allah aloud. On the way they are surrounded by the Angels and from the boundary of the Ka'abah pours in joyous torrents of mercy and forgiveness.

    Without any shadow of a doubt the Last Friday of Ramadan is the day for the acceptance of du'as. Thus it is absolutely important that on this great day sincere prayers should be offered for the success, well-being and victory of the Muslim Ummah.
