Zuhayr ibn Harb narrated to me: ‘Abd al-Rahman ibn Mahdi narrated to us: from Sufyan: from ‘Alqamah ibn Marthad: from Sulayman ibn Buraydah: from his father: that the Prophet (Allah bless him and grant him peace) said:

“He who played backgammon is like one who dyed his hand with the flesh and blood of swine.” (Sahih Muslim)

 

Rules of Divorce in Islam

Source : AlQuranclasses.com / 8 May 2013

Divorce is a game of seconds. Divorce in Islam is the most disliked permissible act.

In the earlier times, no rules of divorce were set, men used to divorce their women out of anger or any other reason and after some time they used to take them back. Women were not given any rights and they were forced to go back in the marriage with their ex-husbands. This inequality and injustice was addressed by Islam and there were rules set to divorce so that no injustice could take place.

 

Wearing a Watch: Which Hand?

By Muhammad ibn Adam Darul Iftaa / 6 May 2013

In the name of Allah, Most Compassionate, Most Merciful,

Obviously, it is not possible to find a specific report concerning the watch since there were no watches in the time of the Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him & give him peace), his Companions and the early Muslims (Allah be pleased with them).

Dress Code of Muslim women

By Aisha Stacey / 6 May 2013

Islam is a complete way of life, each and every aspect is designed by our Creator to advance happy, healthy communities and ease the path to eternal bliss in Paradise. In today’s society modesty is seen as a sign of weakness or insecurity. This is not the case in Islam, where modesty is seen as a sign of respect for oneself and others.

Tasbīh al-Tarāwīh

Traditionally, in each tarwīhah, the mustahabb break between each set of four rak’ahs of the Tarāwīh prayer, the Muslims of different regions, especially in Makkah and Madīnah, observed different acts of worship.The Muslims in Makkah used to make tawāf of the Ka’bah during each tarwīhah, whereas those in Madīnah, unable to make tawāf, would pray an additional four rak’ahs instead.

 

Slaves in Islam – The Concept & Their Rights

By Ebrahim Saifuddin / 13 Apr 2013

Slavery is a concept that existed since pre-recorded history. However the way it was practiced in the Islamic world differs greatly than how it was practiced in the rest of the world. Even in the more recent times, centuries after the introduction of Islam, the non-Muslims have practiced slavery in the most barbaric manner. The whole Trans-Atlantic nonsense that was practiced by the Americans is one of the worst forms of slavery man has witnessed. The slaves were not treated as humans and did not have any rights. This way was much similar to the form practiced before the advent of Islam in the Times of Ignorance (Ja’hilah). Islam indeed came as a blessing to all Mankind and it was seen that slaves were given rights, something which the rest of the world never gave them.

 

Bid'ah - Innovation in Islam

“Wa sharrul Umoori Muhdathaatuhaa, Wa kulla Bid'atin dhaialah, wa kulla dhalatin fin-naar" Al-Hadith (Sahih Muslim). Translation of the above Hadith:“Every innovation is a misguidance and every misguidance goes to Hell fire.”

 

Fiqh of Zakah – Wisdom and Obligation

Source : BelieversPath.com / 8 Apr 2013

Zakah linguistically means increase, meaning there is more barakah in the wealth.  Also, it is an increase for the poor recipients. It also means purification because it is a means of purification for one’s wealth.

Zakah is mentioned together with Salah in the Quran about 32 times, and it is the third pillar of Islam.  The one who denies Zakah being a pillar of Islam, then by consensus, he is not a Muslim. However, the one who acknowledges Zakah but does not pay it, is a major sinner but still within the fold of Islam according to the majority of scholars, including the 4 madhabs.
