Assalamu-alaikum Mufti Aahab,May Allah bless you all for providing this platform to people like us to get our answers.I got married last year through a website but later found out to my shockthat the guy and his family had deceived us by posting complete false information. He was a drunkard, characterless, did not pray a single namaz, was mentally unstable psycopath. In order to save myself the disgrace of being called a divorcee I was prepared to undergo all kinds of torture and did not tell anyone about this.It reached a point where I had lost the powerto think or act. Then one day, I still beleive as if, Allah only showed methe way, and I got divorce from him.My question is however not related to the above. By Allah's grace, after the divorce, i got the opportunity to perform Hajj with my parents.I was taking pills to postpone the periods but unfortunately on EXCATLY the first day of hajj the periods started. As I got completely nervous I startedtaking double doses of the same pill hoping to stop the periods but unfortunately it went on and i had to RETURN BACK WITHOUT PERFORMING thetAWAAF e ZIYARAT.I would be obliged if you can let me have your wisdom on the following:- 1. Has Allah punished me further by not letting me complete all the arkans of Hajj and come back NOT BEING a Haaji?2. Alhamdlillah and Insha Allah I plan to go in the coming Hajj again to complete the tawaaf e ziyarat and also perform a second Hajj, if only Allah wishes so.Now between, if by Allah's wish I get married so will that be OK withoutnon-performance of the Tawaaf e ziyarat? (I'm asking this as I know that the relations bet husband and wife are not allowed till all the Hajj arkans are performed and Ihram restrictions follow)3. Do I have to give a damm' or fidya?Once again may Allah shower his rehmat on you for the g ood work that you allare doing.Allah Hafiz
In sha’ Allah, my husband and I are going to perform Hajj this year. I will be having my monthly period when we leave theUnited States. My question is: Should I enter the state of ihram at the miqat (appointed place to wear ihram) in the plane and do all the rites of `Umrah except the Tawaf and when I make ghusl (ritual cleansing of the body), then do the Tawaf? Or would it be better if I do not assume ihram in the plane and then go back to the miqat and enter the state of ihram for `Umrah after I have performed ghusl? If the first option is better, will I be in the state of ihram for the rest of my period until I make ghusl and then the Tawaf? Also, am I allowed to recite the Qur’an while I am menstruating? Thank you so much. May Allah bless you for all the wonderful work that you do.
As-salamu `alaykum dear imam. Is ablution necessary while completing the different steps of Hajj like Tawaf, Throwing Stones at the pillars that represent Satan?
What is the true meaning of Hajj to Muslims? What feelings do they experience whilst partaking in Hajj? Does it really change the life of a Muslim? Does he truly become closer to Allah?
Respected scholars, as-salamu`alaykum. How can we respond to those who say that Tawaf is a form of worshipping idols?Jazakum Allahu Khayran.
Dear respected sheikhs, as-salamu`alaykum.Many of the Sunni Muslim brothers who live on the coast of the Persian Gulf are longing to perform the Islamic obligation of Hajj. The problem is that they cannot travel via the travel agencies run by Iranian Shiites for fear of disputes that might occur during the journey. In addition, the neighboring Arab governments do not allow them to travel via their airways. Is it permissible for them to send the expenses of the journey to Muslim brothers from another country, so that they would perform Hajj on their behalf? May Allah reward you.Jazakum Allah khayran
