Dear schola rs, As-Salamu `alaykum. When and how was the Adhan prescribed?
Dear scholars, as-salamu `alaykum. Is it correct to pronounce the Adhan and Iqamah when one does not have ablution?
Scholars of Islam, As-Salaam `Alaykum wa Rahmatullah wa Barakatuh. Some people engage in worldly talk or work during Adhan while staying in the mosque. Is it permissible?
As-Salamu `alaykum. When praying individually at home, is it required to say the adhan and Iqamah before each prayer?
Dear scholars, As-Salamu `alaykum. Is it permissible to say the following dhikr formulas permissible while the Adhan (call to Prayer) is being heard or are we always obligated to listen to the Adhan? The dhikr formulas are: “Subhan Allah, al-hamdu lillah, la ilaha illa Allah, Allahu Akbar, astaghfiru Allah, la hawla wa la quwwata illa billah, subhan allahi wa bihamdihi, subhan Allah Al-`azhim” and “La ilaha illa Allah, wahdahu, la sharika lahu, lahu al-mulk wa lahu al-hamd wa huwa `ala kulli shay’in qadir.” Jazakum Allah khayran.
Dear scholars, As-Salamu `alaykum. In our country two adhans are said before Jumu`ah prayer. What is the sunnah, one or two adhans? Is there any rule concerning the place from where the adhan must be made? Is there any hadith that says this adhan on Friday must be made outside the mosque? Jazakum Allah khayran.
Assalamu alaikumAs a new Muslim, the day before Ramadan this year alhamdulillah, I strive to practice my deen as perfectly as possible however sometimes there is still confusion over some issues. I therefore have two questions that despite asking on other boards/forums I cannot achieve a satisfactory answer.i) Does a woman have to do the Adhan or Iqaamat in whatever case. I have been told as a woman I do not have to, but recently when praying with another woman she asked if I was going to do the Iqaamat...ii) I work full-time and pray three times during the course of my working day. Is it permissable to run my hands over my hijab when making wudu, or do I have to take the hijab off for the wudu to be accepted? I'm conscious of the time it takes me to make wudu and then pray during my working hours when my company has been very supportive of my conversion. I have had differing answers with regard to this, some say yes, some say no, some say that it is permissable due to circumstances to wipe over socks and then do regular complete wudu when we get home, so if this is permissable then could this be applied to the hijab?iii) Finally, this will be my first year as a Muslimah, alhamdulillah and Christmas is approaching. The only family I have remaining is my father and although he is not religious, (we) do exchange gifts and cards. How should I approach this, is it permissable to continue to exchange items? He is also very supportive, alhamdulillah, of my conversion however it will be 'strange' not to present him with gifts. I am fully aware, alhamdulillah, of the psychology surrounding my feelings and know that I can give him gifts any time of the year, and actually Eid would be nice, it's just getting used to losing the tradition. (My family are not religious in general.)Alhamdulillah my concern is obviously to do what is correct and that is why I am seeking the truth, insha'Allah.JazakAllah khayran for the advice you are able to give.Assalamu alaikum
