today ishraq time is 6.07.what time I make slaha for ishraq السؤال: تسأل عن وقت صلاة الضحى. الجواب: صلاة الضحى ركعتان تصلى بعد طلوع الشمس وارتفاعها قدر رمح وزوال وقت الكراهة (وهي المقدرة بـ 15 دقيقة بعد الإشراق)، ويستمر إلى قبيل أذان الظهر، وقد جاء في فضلها قول النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم: (مَنْ صَلَّى الْغَدَاةَ فِي جَمَاعَةٍ ثُمَّ قَعَدَ يَذْكُرُ اللَّهَ حَتَّى تَطْلُعَ الشَّمْسُ، ثُمَّ صَلَّى رَكْعَتَيْنِ، كَانَتْ لَهُ كَأَجْرِ حَجَّةٍ، وَعُمْرَةٍ، تَامَّةٍ، تَامَّةٍ، تَامَّةٍ) رواه الترمذي (586) من حديث أَنَسِ بْنِ مَالِكٍ رضي الله عنه. والله تعالى أعلم.
All Praise belongs to Allah, the Lord of all the Worlds and may His peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad and all his Family and Companions. We ask Allah, the All Capable, that He always guide you and fill your life with all manners of grace and increase. The Prayer of Ishraq (or Duha) is a prayer that is offered after the sun has risen and become high. It consists of two rakaats that are prayed after sunrise after the passing away of disliked time (which is about 15 minutes after the sun rises). If the time of Sunrise is (6:07 AM), the time of Duha prayer begins from (6:22 AM) and ends before noon. Concerning its virtue, the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: "Whoever prays Fajr in congregation, then sits remembering Allah until the sun rises, then prays two rakaats, will have a reward like that of Hajj and ‘Umrah, complete, complete, complete." Narrated by al-Tirmidhi . And Allah knows best

What is the Sharia say about communications between a future husband and wife? Does the Sharia allow for constant exchange of phone calls and messages before a Nikaah? السؤال: ما حكم الشرع في التواصل المستمر بين المخطوبين، مكالمات ورسائل..قبل الزواج؟ الجواب: التواصل بين المرأة وخطيبها جائز ضمن حدود وضوابط، فالشيء المسموح هو ما يحتاجه الطرفان من كلام للتعارف والفهم المتبادل، لأنهما في مرحلة الخطوبة أي ما قبل اتخاذ القرار النهائي بالزواج، وقد يحصل فسخ للخطوبة فلذلك لا يجوز تبادل الصور والكلام العاطفي، لأن هذه الأشياء لا تجوز إلا بعد عقد الزواج، وحصوله قبل ذلك يصبح مشكلة في حالة فسخ الخطوبة.
Thank you for your question, The communication between a woman and her fiancé is permissible within limits and controls. The permissible thing is what the tow parties need to talk about to achieve mutual acquaintance and understanding, because they are in the engagement stage, ie, before the final decision , therefore, it is not permissible to exchange pictures and emotional speech, because these things are not permissible before doing the marriage contract. Such things before the marriage contract becomes a problem in case of cancelling engagement.

If any person read chat of any husband wife without their knowledge and show to other people to make them insult. what is islam says about this?   السؤال: هل يجوز للزوج أن يتجسس على محادثة زوجته الخاصة على سبيل المثال (على الهاتف أو أجهزة الكمبيوتر مثلا) بدون علمها وبعد ذلك يظهر تلك المحادثة لأشخاص آخرين لإهانتها - ما هو موقف الإسلام في هذا الامر؟ فالجواب:  فنسأل الله العلي القدير أن يحفظكم ويبارك فيكم، ونشكرك على تواصلك معنا، ينبغي للمؤمن حسن الظن بالمسلمين وتغليب جانب الخير، والبعد عن الشك والظن الذي لا مستند له؛ امتثالا لقوله تعالى: {يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا اجْتَنِبُوا كَثِيرًا مِنَ الظَّنِّ إِنَّ بَعْضَ الظَّنِّ إِثْمٌ وَلَا تَجَسَّسُوا} (الحجرات/12). وأولى الناس بحسن الظن الزوجة لعظيم حقها على الزوج واحترامها وإكرامها. وبالتالي: لا يجوز للزوج أن يتجسس على هاتف زوجته؛ لأن هذا التصرف يحمل في طياته الريبة والتهمة، وقد نهينا عن الشك والتخون في الأهل والاقارب وربما أدى إلى فساد الحال بين الزوجين على وجه يصعب معه الإصلاح مستقبلا. ومع هذا يجب على الزوج أن يكون حريصا على زوجته وينصحها ويخدمها وإذا بدا منها خطأ فلينصحها برفق واحترام ولا يسعى إلى فضيحتها بين الناس لإهانتها وإسقاط منزلتها، وكل ابن آدم خطاء، وإذا بدا منها عيب فليعالج الموضوع بسرية ونصيحة وتحذيرها من العواقب. والله تعالى أعلم.
In the name of Allah, the All-Merciful, the One Who gives Mercy. Peace and blessings be upon the Messenger of Allah. Dear Questioner, May Allah guide you to all good. The believer should think positively of their fellow Muslim and should assume the best, and interpret affairs in a good way, and should keep away from suspicion and negative thinking for which there is no basis, because Allah, may He be exalted, says (interpretation of the meaning): O you who have believed, avoid much [negative] assumption. Indeed, some assumption is sin. And do not spy or backbite each other. [al-Hujuraat: 49:12]. Based on this, the basic principle is that it is not permissible for a husband under ordinary circumstances to check on his wife's cell phone or laptop, because this conduct implies doubt and suspicion, and it may sour the relationship between the spouses in a manner that may be difficult to put right afterwards. Based on this: It is not permissible for a husband to spy and check his wife's private conversation on her phone or elsewhere. Because such behavior implies doubt and suspicion and we already mentioned how such doubt if forbidden. To do such things with one's wife and family may corrupt their relationship and trust and make things hard to be rectified. That said, it is necessary for the husband to be avid for his wife's welfare, he should advise her and serve her. If he sees mistakes he should try and advise her with gentleness and respect and not hasten to broadcast and reveal her wrongs amidst people, diminishing her rank in their eyes. Every human being makes mistakes, we all have faults, so if he sees something displeasing, he should seek to rectify the matter in a hasteful, private way and with mercy, that aids her in never returning. Thank you and Allah knows best.

 I have been in a marriage that has been abusive and my spouse had hill realtion with my chilldren. please need help in this matter.  
Thank you for your question. We ask Allah to protect and bless you and your children, and we ask Him to change your husband so that he be good to you and your children and treat you with respect and dignity. First, it would have been better if you had told us about the problem in more detail, one line is not enough to present such a problem. But we'll try to help you with general and useful advice: There are certain things that you can do from your side as his wife: 1) Adopt a wise and smart approach in dealing with him. It is not difficult for a wife to know the keys to her husband's heart and find ways and means to achieve what she desires without problems or confrontations. For example, this was Aishah bint Kharijah's advice to her daughter when she got married: "You came from a cozy nest which you're familiar with to a bed that you're not accustomed to and partner that you're not acquainted with. Be his earth and he will be your sky. Be his plain and he will be your pillar. Be his maid and he will be your slave. Do not insist and press him to do something such that he starts to dislike you, nor distance yourself from him such that he forgets you. Should he get close to you, then you get closer too, and should he move away, then you move away too. Protect his nose, ears, and eyes such that he does not smell from you except what is pleasant, and not hear from you except what is good, and not see from you except was is beautiful." 2) that you know what it is that annoys him and what it is that needs, and then you try to positively respond to him and address his needs and concerns in an amicable and agreeable way. No one knows the details and nitty-gritty of this better than you, 3) that you patiently endure, constantly make du'a and direct yourself to Allah that He cause your husband to improve and be a better person and that He reconciles between you and bring harmony and affection to your marriage, because in the end, our hearts belong to Allah, and he is the One in charge of them. The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) says in a hadith: " Indeed the hearts are between two Fingers of Allah's Fingers, He changes them as He wills.'" 4) that you avoid blaming one another (blame game) and whatever causes emotions and tempers to flare up, and that you try instead to get to a situation where you are able to mutually iron out problems with your husband and discuss the causes of disagreement in a calm, cordial and composed exchange and dialogue as a way of maintaining a good family relationship between you. Finally, try to visit a family counseling center, you may get good help. and Allah knows best.

i would like to know if I can apply for a credit card which will help me to pay in case of emergency situation. I have intention to pay it within the grace period and would not indulge in any riba or interest.
In the name of Allah, the All-Merciful, the One Who gives Mercy. Peace and blessings be upon the Messenger of Allah.  Dear questioner,  Assalamu 'alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh May Allah give you every good. Contemporary scholars state that it is not permissible to use conventional credit cards because it takes the ruling of interest based lending even if you are able to pay the amount before the accruing of interest. This is because the contract with conventional Banks involves the stipulation that you will pay interest should you ever delay repayment, so you have agreed to the contractual terms of Riba therein even if you may not do it.  As for credit cards issued by Islamic Banks, then there is no harm in transacting with them, on condition that the "fees" be commensurate to actual services, i.e. they not be linked to delay in payment, or the amount actually lent.  Generally speaking these conditions are observed in Islamic Banks, unlike other institutions due to the absence of any Sharia observance and audit. Thus, in summary, it is not permissible for you to deal with conventional credit cards other than those issues by Islamic Banks. Whosoever leaves something for the sake of Allah, will find His recompense sweeter and better than what they could have thought.  May Allah always assist you in the Halal.

My husband has 3 wives. each wife has 2 kids. one wife live in same building but different floor. another wife in Pakistan. between co-wives we don't have any friendship or contact. My daughters age are 9yr and 6yr. they don't know their father has more than one wife and other children. Is it ok to hide this fact from my children. if must tell them, which age is better to tell them about this issue. would be thankful for your help!
Thank you for your question. It is not good that the children do not know that they have brothers from other mothers. It is better for brothers to know each other. There is no specific age to tell them, but every delay makes things worse and harder, since they live in the same building, they are more likely to know them as their neighbors. We do not recommend postponing this task anymore, it should be done as soon as possible, and as they say: "the sooner the better".

my first wife is week since initial due to attack of JIN..we tried many ways but unsuccessfull..and her father not allowing me to mary for 2nd one..can i mary 2nd wife without my first wife permision..is it allowable n sharia. pls advise for best option.
We ask Allah, the Most High, that He always preserves you and blesses you in all affairs of your life. Concerning your query, it is allowed in Islam for a Muslim man to marry more than one wife and engage in polygamy (he can marry upto four wives), but this is subject to specific conditions that ensure there is equality, justice and no shortcoming between his wives. The permission to engage in polygamy is derived from the Qur'an, the holy Book of the Muslims which states: "Marry those that please you of women, two or three or four. But if you fear that you will not be just, then [marry only] one" [Qur'an 4:3]. As marriage is a huge step in the life of any human being, we advise you to be prepared to take on all the religious and real world responsibilities of being a partner to raise a Muslim family. In some countries, according to the law, the first wife must be informed before the registration of the second marriage. You should ask the judicial authority in your country about this.

Is it allowed when kutba is preaching in Arabic we hear from your application in English or urdu in head phone   السؤال: هل يجوز في أثناء إلقاء الخطبة [خطبة الجمعة] أن نستمع إلى الخطبة باللغة الإنكليزية أو الأردية من خلال سماعات الهاتف المحمول؟ الرد: السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته، وشكرًا على سؤالك. واعلم أن المركز الرسمي للإفتاء قد أصدر فتوى بهذا الخصوص مفادها أنه يجوز الاستماع إلى خطبة الجمعة باللغة الإنكليزية أو الأردية والإمام يخطب من خلال سماعات الهاتف المحمول وأن ذلك لا يعد من اللغو الذي نهى عنه النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم، بل يعين المصلي الناطق بغير العربية على الإصغاء إلى الخطبة والاستفادة منها بشكل أفضل. هذا، وتأتي هذه المبادرة انطلاقًا من حرص القيادة الرشيدة على ترسيخ الفهم الصحيح لتعاليم الدين الإسلامي الحنيف، وسط الجاليات المسلمة الوافدة، وتعزيزاً لقيم التسامح والتلاحم بين أفراد المجتمع ونشر المحبة والألفة بينهم، وإيصال الكلمة الدينية الأسبوعية الهادفة، كما أن الهيئة العامة للشؤون الإسلامية والأوقاف قد وفرت هذه الخدمة للناطقين بغير اللغة العربية لتمكنهم من الاستماع لخطبة الجمعة باللغة الإنجليزية أو الأردية من خلال تطبيق الهواتف الذكية الخاص بالهيئة العامة للشؤون الإسلامية والأوقاف الإماراتية، والذي يعد من التطبيقات الحكومية السباقة في تقديم خدمات ذكية للجمهور، وتلبية احتياجات شريحة من المجتمع من الناطقين بغير اللغة العربية، وفهم الرسائل والمعاني التي تقدمها خطبة الجمعة إلى الناس كافة على اختلاف لغاتهم ومستوياتهم، باعتبارها من أهم وسائل التوجيه والتأثير لنشر الفضائل ومبادئ الدين الحنيف في المجتمع، كما جاءت أهمية ترجمة خطبة الجمعة لأكثر من لغة لترسيخ القيم الإسلامية والتوعية بأهم القضايا الاجتماعية في الدولة. وخلاصة الكلام أنه لا بأس من الاستماع إلى خطبة الجمعة باللغة الإنكليزية أو الأردية والإمام يخطب من خلال سماعات الهاتف المحمول وأن ذلك لا يعد من اللغو المنهي عنه، والله تعالى أعلم.
Assalamu ‘alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh, and thank you for your question. Know that the Official Fatwa Center has issued a fatwa in this regard, the upshot of which is that it is permissible to listen to the Friday sermon in English or Urdu while the imam is delivering the Friday sermon through mobile earphones and that this is not classified as idle talk or frivolous activity (laghw) that Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) prohibited.  On the contrary, it helps the non-Arabic speaker to listen more attentively to the sermon and benefit from it. Furthermore, this initiative comes from the astute UAE leadership’s keen concern to establish proper understanding of the teachings of Islam amongst expatriate Muslim communities, in order to promote the values of tolerance and cohesion among the members of society and to spread love and affection among them. The General Authority for Islamic Affairs and Endowments (AWQAF) has provided this service to non-Arabic speakers to enable them to listen to the weekly Friday sermon in English or Urdu through the mobile app of the AWQAF. Moreover, this is one of the leading government apps in providing smart services to the public, meeting the needs of a segment of the community of non-Arabic speakers, and understanding the meaning and message that the Friday sermon conveys to people of different languages and levels as one of the most important means of guidance and influence for spreading virtue and disseminating the principles of the Islam in society.   In summary, it is permissible to listen to the Friday sermon in English or Urdu while the imam is delivering the Friday sermon through mobile earphones and that this is not classified as idle talk or frivolous activity (laghw) that is prohibited.
