Dear Sheikh! Ramadan Mubarak! I have a simple question for you. Can I have Iftar (i.e. to have an Iftar meal) at the house of my Christian friend?
Dear Scholar,assalamu alaykum Recently i've got an email with the following hadith. Could you please verify whether its authentic. Subject: The power of the Dua of Iftaar! Once Moosa (AS) asked Allah Ta'ala: O Allah ! you have granted me thehonour and privilege of talking to you directly, Have you given this privilege to any other person? Allah Ta'ala replied, O Moosa duringthe last period I am going to send an ummat, who will be the Ummat of Mohammed (SAW) with dry lips , parched tongues, emaciated body witheyes sunken deep into their sockets, with livers dry and stomachs suffering the pangs of hunger- will call out to me (in dua) they will be much much closer to me than you O Moosa! while you speak to me there are 70000 veils between you and me but at the time of iftaar there will not be a single veil between me and the fasting Ummati of Mohammed (SAW) O moosa I have taken upon m yself the responsibility that at the time of iftaar I will never refuse the dua of a fasting person! May all of our dua be granted during this blessed month inshaAllah. Please include me in your Duas. May Allah forgive all the sins of all Muslims and save them from the hell and dwell them in his Jannathul Firdows. Ameen!
