Respected scholars of Islam, As-Salamu `alaykum. What is the ruling of selling things inside the mosque?
As-Salamu `alaykum. Sometimes I go out of the mosque immediately after finishing the Prayer, and then I make the recommended dhikr (remembrance of Allah) while walking or driving. Is it correct that making such dhikr in the mosque yields mo re reward than making it outside the mosque? And what is the difference between the two cases?
Dear scholars, as-salamu `alay kum. How should Muslims go to the mosque? Should they hurry or should they go calmly?
Dear scholars, as-salamu `alaykum. Is there any virtue in being in the first row and on the right side in congregational Prayer?
Dear scholars, As-Salamu `alaykum. Is it permissible to step over people’s necks in the mosque during the Friday Prayer?
Dear scholars, as-salamu `alaykum. Are we allowed to raise our voices in the mosque?
Dear scholars, As-Salamu `alaykum. We hold regular classes or circles for teaching the Qur’an in our mosque. Are women who are in a state of hayd (menstruation) allowed to attend such classes in order to enhance their Islamic knowledge? Are they allowed to attend Jumu`ah and `Eid sermons in such a state? Jazakum Allah khayran.
Dear Sheikh! Salam! What does Islam say about offering Prayer in a mosque where there is a tomb, such as the Mosques of Hussein and Sayeda Nafeesah (in Cairo)?
As-Salamu `alaykum. Is it permissible to pray in a mosque, which is built by money gained from interest (riba)?
Dear scholars, As-Salamu `alaykum. Some people greet others in the mosque loudly. Those people may be praying or listening attentively to a religious lesson. What is the point of view of Islam on this practice? Jazakum Allah khayran.
Bismillah el Rahman el Rahim,Assalam Aleikum was Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuhu,I am a member of the Markaz El Islam de la Rive-Sud, situated on the South Shore of Montréal, Québec in Canada. One of the buildings owned by the Markaz includes a Masjid occupying more or less 40% of the area, a sports arena and a community center with all the accessories. The construction of the building in question is almost finished, but heavily under funded. In order to attract media attention, promote Center itself, the knowledge of Islam and to create good neighborly relations with the community at large as well as to induce, by way of that positive exposure, access to necessary but untapped financing sources, we are organizing meetings with representatives form the Jewish and Christian faiths, as well as Buddhists and maybe in the future other denominations. We are hoping that the media will be interested in covering such interfaith activities. We have invited these people to the Center for meetings and discussions. We have also invited them to visit the Masjid area, properly dressed and shoeless. They have also been allowed to observe a Jammaa prayer. We have the following questions for you: 1. Is it appropriate to have such meetings in the Community Center, contiguous to the prayer area, considering that:a. At some point in time, the Catholic priest, referred to Maryam Alaiha al Salam as ?Mary, the mother of God? astaghfur Allah, Taala Allahu Aamma Yacouloun Oullouwan Kabira, b. The same priest wears a cross, 2. We aim at informing the non-Muslims about Islam. The formula under examination is the organization of meetings in the community centers of all participants. In order to have access to their population we have to allow them an equal opportunity. Is it appropriate to organize conferences in the Community Center that would allow these representatives to expose to our community members the points that we have in common as well as some information about the differences, concerning subjects like Peace, Prayer, Faith, Religious activities, Fasting a.s.o. ? 3. Would there be a problem if these activities were to be held in the prayer area? 4. In the event that you would find such meetings in the Community Center to present problems, what would be your suggestions in order to achieve our objectives?Baraka Allah Fikum,
Can a Mosque Imam hit a child for whatever reason? Can he hit a child at all? If so, what are the limits that a child can be hit — on the face, on the back, or where?
Scholars of Islam, as-Salamu `alaykum! There is a Prophetic hadith which indicates that for every step towards the Masjid for Jama`ah service is a reward. Then, does driving to the mosque entail the same reward as walking?
Aslaam u alaikum I wanted to ask that this year I plan to do itikaf as much as possible. I won’t be able to do the whole time because I have small children and other household responsibilities, but I will do in the night as much as possible. Does the next fasting day start after we break our fast at Maghrib time? Meaning, will the 27th night the night of Laylatul Qadr start after we break our 26th fast, at Maghrib time. Does the time for ibadaat for the night start after Maghrib or Isha, or someone told me it start after Asr, especilally to find the time of Laylat ul Qadr.
