Dear scholars, As-salamu `alaykum. Can you tell me if one must say a niyyah (intention) for Witr Prayer either in `Isha’ or Tahajjud Prayer? Jazakum Allah khayran.
Dear scholars, As-Salamu `alaykum. Is it sufficient for one to make the intention to fast Ramadan once, or has one to make the intention to fast for each day one fasts separately? Is one required to express the intention to fast in explicit words or is it sufficient to make the intention in one's heart? Jazakum Allah khayran.
Assalam u alaikum brotherI had three questions which I was wondering if you could please answer:1) When you have done the niyyat for fasting but it is not yet the end of Sehri, is it permissable to eat or drink? 2) Is it permissable to use toothpaste and brush your teeth when fasting? 3) If you start a fast and then you start your menses during the fast, do you have to complete the fast and does it count?Many thanks in advanceJazak Allah Khair
Dear scholars, As-Salamu `alaykum. Can you define the acceptable intention of fasting? Is it necessary to formulate the intention to fast every single day of Ramadan, or is it enough to make the intention to fast the whole month in the beginning? Jazakum Allah khayran.
As-Salamu `alaykum. I have heard that it is bid`ah to make an audible intention when one is about to enter prayer (i.e., one says for example, I am going to pray four rak`ahs fard etc.); is that is true? I have heard that the intention should be made in the heart and not aloud. Could you please furnish me with a comprehensive Fatwa in this regard? Your early response will be very much appreciated!
As-Salamu `alaykum. What is the intention a person is supposed to have while praying behind an Imam, and what intention should an Imam have while leading the salah (ritual Prayer)?
Respected scholars,as-salamu `alaykum. What is the ruling on using double entendres? Jazakum Allahu Khayran.
