Dear scholars, As-Salamu `alaykum. I was not taught how to read the Qur’an until my late teens, but even then I was taught only a few verses, without learning how to read Arabic. Now I am 20, struggling to learn on my own with the help of tapes and booklets. I am unable to attend any formal classes. Nevertheless, the tapes seem to be sufficient for me now. However, my sister who is 6 years old is in the same situation I was beforehand. Can you recommend any tapes, CDs of any kind to help us begin the process of reading the Qur’an? Jazakum Allah khayran.
As-Salamu `Alaykum. I would like to know what is the ruling regarding following a Madhab. Is it necessary to follow one of the four Imams or can I live Islam by only applying the teaching of the Qur’an and the Prophetic Sunnah? Please give me a detailed answer backed up by evidence.
Sometimes, I download Islamic audio materials from the Internet to listen to lectures. When I am done with the audio, I want to delete it so that I can have some space on my computer, but I am hesitant because sometimes the lectures contain Qur’anic verses being recited. Is it okay for me to delete the audio files even though they contains Qur’anic verses?
Dear scolars as-salamu ´alaikum I just read about when people write words of quran and then dissolve it in water then drink it, im not sure but i have one sheikh in my family that i think have done something like that. I wonder if i could get more information about it.I have also seen many sheiks fron kurdistan, many of them are very well educated and knows alot about islam. They wrote down something to my cousine.(My cousine was scared .)it was a Du´a and put in into a small bowl of water i and a relative of mine did salawat on the du´a and the chlid(my cousine). After doing this they took the water and washed her hands and legs with it. Now i want to know weather this is haram or not?
