Pearls of a Muslim

Q: O respected Sheikh! Would you please tell me the meaning of Allah’s saying: But whosoever hastens to leave in two days, there is no sin on him and whosoever stays on, there is no sin on him?

A: This Glorious Ayah (Qur’anic verse) relates to the Days of Tashriq (11th, 12th and 13th of Dhul-Hijjah), Al-Nafr Al-Awwal (leaving Mina after throwing the stones in the 12th of Dhul-Hijjah), and Al-Nafr Al-Thani (leaving Mina after stoning on the 13th of Dhul-Hijjah). Allah (Glorified be He) says: And remember Allâh during the appointed Days. i.e. the Days of Tashriq which does not include the Day of `Eid-ul-Adha (the Festival of the Sacrifice). And remember Allâh during the appointed Days. The Day of `Eid-ul-Adha is the tenth day of Dhul-Hijjah. Muslims are commanded to pronounce Dhikr (Remembrance of Allah) during the first ten days of Dhul-Hijjah and the appointed Days of Tashriq…

When should a person start Takbir (saying: “Allahu Akbar [Allah is the Greatest]”) following the conclusion of Prayer [during the days of `Eid-ul-Adha (the Festival of the Sacrifice)]? And what is the evidence of this prescription?

A: It is prescribed for the pilgrims to pronounce Talbiyah (devotional expressions chanted at certain times during Hajj and `Umrah) when they enter into Ihram (ritual state for Hajj or `Umrah) until they throw pebbles at Jamrat-ul-`Aqabah (the closest stone pillar to Makkah). This is based on the Hadith reported on the authority of Ibn `Umar (may Allah be pleased with him and his father): We left early in the morning with the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) from Mina to `Arafah; some of us were performing Talbiyah and the others performing Takbir. The obligatory Takbir of Hajj starts after offering the Zhuhr (Noon) Prayer on the Day of Nahr (Sacrifice, 10th of Dhul-Hijjah, when pilgrims slaughter their sacrificial animals) until the `Asr (Afternoon) Prayer on the last of the Days of Tashriq (11th, 12th, and 13th of Dhul-Hijjah). As for non-pilgrims, they should start Takbir starting from after the Fajr (Dawn) Prayer on the Day of `Arafah (9th of Dhul-Hijjah) until the end of the Days of Tashriq. The evidence of the prescription of Takbir is Allah’s Saying: And remember Allâh during the appointed Days. And: and that you must magnify Allâh [i.e. to say Takbîr (Allâhu Akbar; Allâh is the Most Great)] for having guided you This is what the Sahabah (Companions of the Prophet) used to do.

Q: When should the Takbir (saying: “Allahu Akbar [Allah is the Greatest]”) restricted to after the obligatory daily Salahs (Prayers) [during the days of `Eid-ul-Adha (the Festival of the Sacrifice)] start? What is the evidence of its legality?

A: It is prescribed for pilgrims to say Talbiyah (devotional expressions chanted at certain times during Hajj and `Umrah) from the time they enter Ihram (ritual state for Hajj or `Umrah) until they throw the pebbles at Jamrat-ul-`Aqabah (the closest pebble-throwing area to Makkah). This is based on the Hadith reported on the authority of Ibn `Umar (may Allah be pleased with him and his father): We left early in the morning with the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) from Mina to `Arafah; some of us were performing Talbiyah and the others performing Takbir. Pilgrims should start restricted Takbir after offering the Zhuhr (Noon) Prayer on the Day of Nahr (Sacrifice, 10th of Dhul-Hijjah, when pilgrims slaughter their sacrificial animals) until the `Asr (Afternoon) Prayer on the last of the Days of Tashriq (11th, 12th, and 13th of Dhul-Hijjah). As for non-pilgrims, they should start Takbir starting from after the Fajr (Dawn) Prayer on the Day of `Arafah (9th of Dhul-Hijjah) until the end of the Days of Tashriq. The evidence of its legality is the Saying of Allah (Exalted be He): And remember Allâh during the appointed Days. And: …and that you must magnify Allâh [i.e. to say Takbîr (Allâhu Akbar; Allâh is the Most Great)] for having guided you This is also supported by the fact that the Sahabah (Companions of the Prophet) used to do so.

Islamic Scholar Denounces ISIS and Al-Qaeda

“The ideas of extremism, radicalism and terrorism …. are the first enemy of Islam, and Muslims are their first victims…”

August 19, 2014

Saudi Arabia’s Grand Mufti Sheikh Abdulaziz Al-AsShaikh, who is also Chairman of the Council of Senior Ulema (religious scholars) and the General Presidency of Scholarly Research and Ifta, today denounced extremist groups such as the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) and Al-Qaeda who claim terrorist acts in the name of Islam.

In a statement titled, “Foresight and Remembrance,” Sheikh Al-AsShaikh stated, “The ideas of extremism, radicalism and terrorism do not belong to Islam in any way, but are the first enemy of Islam, and Muslims are their first victims, as seen in the crimes of the so-called Daash (ISIS) and Al-Qaeda and their affiliated groups.”

Last month, Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz urged Muslims to defeat terrorism during his Eid Al-Fitr address. “These groups have become an easy tool for the enemies of Islam who use them to terrorize and kill innocent people through the distortion of the holy text and interpretation of Islamic law to serve their ends and personal interests,” said King Abdullah.

The Standing Committee of Scholarly Research and Ifta in Saudi Arabia Speaks About the Oppression against the Muslims in Palestine and Gaza

Translated by Mustafa George DeBerry

All praise belongs to Allah and may the Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon the most noble of Prophets and Messengers; our Prophet Muhammad, and upon his family members, companions, and those whom follow them in truth until the Day of Judgment.

To Proceed:

Indeed, The Standing Committee for Scholarly Research and Ifta in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has been following – with great sadness, grief and pain – what has been happening to the Muslims in Palestine and particularly in the Gaza Strip. The ongoing oppression and killing of children, women, the elderly, the violation of the sanctity, the destruction of homes and facilities, in addition to terrorizing the safety of civilians. Without a doubt, this…
