what to do if you cant find peace and khushoo in prayer نص سؤال السائل: ماذا تفعل إذا لم تجد السكينة والخشوع في الصلاة ؟ خلاصة الإجابة: بارك الله تعالى فيك أخي السائل وزادك حرصا على تعلم دينك، واعلم أن الخشوع هو: خضوع القلب لله تعالى فِي ذُلٍّ وَمَهَانَةٍ، بالخوف والتعظيم والمحبة وسكون الأعضاء، وتعرف أنك خشعت في صلاتك، إذا فرغت قلبك لها واشتغلت بها عما سواها، والباب الأسرع  في  الوصول الى الخشوع كثرة الذكر، وملازمة التقوى. وإن من أفضل علاج للتركيز في الصلاة أن تصلي صلاة مودع كما أخرج الطبراني في المعجم الكبير وكما رواه البيهقي في "الزهد الكبير" عن ابْنَ عُمَرَ، يَقُولُ: أَتَى رَجُلٌ النَّبِيَّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ فَقَالَ: يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ، حَدِّثْنِي بِحَدِيثٍ وَاجْعَلْهُ مُوجَزًا، فَقَالَ لَهُ النَّبِيُّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ: "صل صلاة مودع كأنك تراه فإن كنت لا تراه فإنه يراك وأيئس مما في أيدي الناس تعش غنيا وإياك وما يعتذر منه". رواه البيهقي في "الزهد الكبير" (2/ 210)، والله تعالى أعلم.
May Allah bless you, dear questioner and increase you in avidness in this religion. Please note dear brother, that the word Khushūʿ has the meaning of lowering oneself in abasement and willful prostration for the sake of Allah. This is embodied through reverential awe and fear, honoring Him, love for Him, and the stillness of one’s mind and limbs from being distracted by other than Him. You will know that you have Khushūʿ in your prayer if you are able to free up and empty your heart of being attached towards and being busied from anything besides Allah. The quickest way to bring this about is by engaging in much remembrance of Allah, and adhering to Taqwa at all times.  Also, from the best and most practical ways of bringing about Khushūʿ in one’s prayer is by considering it to possibly be the last prayer that one ever performs. Ṭabarāni narrates in the book Muʿjam al-Kabīr, alongside Imam al-Bayhaqī in his Book of Zuhd (Asceticism), that Ibn ʿUmar narrates : A man once came to the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) and said: O Messenger of Allah, speak to me about something that I can take as an admonition, so the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said: “Pray like a man bidding farewell (i.e. about to die) as if you can see Him (i.e. God), for although you cannot see Him, He sees you, and do not be avid about what other people possess, then you will live a rich life. Beware of any action that requires an apology (i.e. do not hurt other people in word or deed).” And Allah knows best.

Assalam-u-alikum, have purchased flat for renting, do i need to pay Zakat on property value or rental amount received despite if the money received as rent is spent on other expenses and not completed 1 yr. Jazak Allah السؤال: اشتريت شقة للتأجير، فهل أخرج زكاتها على قيمتها أم على الإيجار؟ مع أني أصرف هذا الإيجار ولا يبقى منه شيء ليحول عليه الحول. الجواب: زكاة العقارات المؤجرة تجب على إيجارها فقط وليس على قيمتها. ويزكى الدخل من الإيجار إذا بلغ نصابًا وحال عليه الحول من يوم القبض للإيجار سواء كان هذا الدخل من عقار تم بيعه، أم من عقار لا يزال عندك. والله تعالى أعلم.
Thank you for this question, As for properties that you are renting out, you pay Zakat on their annual rent only and not on the value of the properties themselves. Thus, Zakat is paid on the income (earnings) you receive from renting when it has reached the minimum required amount and an entire year has elapsed from the day the rent money was received, and in case you spend this money and you do not have the amount of nisab for a full year, zakat is not obligatory on this income. And Allah knows best.

What is the islamic sharia rule regarding a muslim swearing by the holy Quran or by one of the creatures created by Allah, glory be to Him السؤال: هل يجوز أن يحلف المسلم بالقرآن أو بأي مخلوق ؟ الجواب: الحلف بالقرآن يجوز ويعتبر نوعا من الحلف، لأن القرآن كلام الله تعالى وصفة من صفاته، وتلزم فيه الكفارة إن حنث الحالف، وأما الحلف بغير الله وصفاته فلا يجوز، ولا كفارة فيه، فمن كان حالفا فعليه أن يحلف بالله لحديث: "من كان حالفا فليحلف بالله أو ليصمت". رواه البخاري. والله تعالى أعلم.
Dear Brother, Swearing by Quran is permissible and is considered as oath, because it is Allah's speech, and a one from his attributes, so whoever swears by Quran and breaks his vow; he has to expiate for his oath broken. but swearing by other than Allah and his attributes is not permissible, and not considered as outh, and it is not expiated in case of breaking. our prophet may Allh's peace and blessings be upon him said: (Whoever wants to take an oath, should swear by Allah or remain silent) (i. e. He should not swear by other than Allah)

Assalaamu alaikum, I would like to know if it is halal to purchase and keep gold as a personal investment for future needs. Is this permissible or is it considered as hoarding of wealth? Kindly clarify. Jazakum Allah khair السؤال: هل يجوز شراء الذهب كنوع من الاستثمار للمستقبل، أم أن هذا يعتبر كنزا للمال؟ الجواب: يجوز أن تشتري الذهب واعتباره كوسيلة للادخار أو الاستثمار ولكن بشرط أن تؤدي زكاته عند توفر الشروط المعروفة عند الفقهاء وهي النصاب والحول، فإذا أديت زكاته فليس بكنز، كما في الحديث الشريف.

At what time fajr prayer gets qaza? السؤال: متى تصبح صلاة الفجر قضاء؟ الجواب: أفضل وقت لأداء صلاة أي صلاة هو أول وقتها، كما في الحديث (أحب الأعمال إلى الله الصلاة على وقتها)، فالمستحب المسارعة إلى أداء الصلاة في أول وقتها. ووقت صلاة الفجر يبدأ من طلوع الفجر الصادق وينتهي عند بداية وقت طلوع الشمس. قال النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم: (وَوَقْتُ صَلاةِ الصُّبْحِ مِنْ طُلُوعِ الْفَجْرِ مَا لَمْ تَطْلُعِ الشَّمْسُ) رواه مسلم (612). بالتالي فإذا صلاها بعد شروق الشمس فقد صلاها قضاء.
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. Dear Brother, may Allah bless you and accept your devotion. We ask Him that He always protects you. The best time for any salah is the beginning of its time, due to the statement of the Prophetﷺ "The best of deeds in the sight of Allah is salah at the beginning of its time" (Bukhari). So it is recommended that a person hasten to salah after the entrance of its time always. The time for Fajr prayer lasts from the true dawn until the sun starts to rise. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: "The time for Fajr prayer is from the breaking of dawn, so long as the sun has not started to rise." [Narrated by Muslim, 612.] So if a person offers his prayer exactly at the time of sunrise, or after, he has prayed outside of the time, and it is Qadh'aa . And Allah knows best

At Magrib and Isha and zuhr after Fard, how mani time duration should be keep for ziker and Dua? What is sunnah? I need hadith refarance also. should I do Sunna salah immediatly or I will make Ziker and Dua then sunnah salah?
Thank you for your question. It is from the Sunnah to sit after prayer in your place to say the Dhikr (Saying Subhanallah, Alhamdulillah, Allahu Akbar, 33 times each and completing 100 by reciting La ila illallah (and other forms of Dhikr which is recommended after every Fard salah.) and there is no limit to the time you spend in it, as it is desirable in the Sunnah Ba`diyyah (supererogatory Prayer performed after an obligatory Prayer) to be at home. (and it is permissible to pray it in the mosque).   The Prophet (ﷺ) said: "The reward for Salat performed by a person in congregation is more than 20 times greater than that of the Salat performed in one's house or shop. When one performs Wudu' perfectly and then proceeds to the mosque with the sole intention of performing Salat, then for every step he takes towards the mosque, he is upgraded one degree in reward and one of his sins is eliminated until he enters the mosque, and when he enters the mosque, he is considered as performing Salat as long as it is the Salat which prevents him (from leaving the mosque); and the angels keep on supplicating Allah for him as long as he remains in his place of prayer. They say: 'O Allah! have mercy on him; O Allah! forgive his sins; O Allah! accept his repentance'. This will carry on as long as he does not pass wind". There is nothing wrong with praying the Sunnah Ba'diyyah within the time of the Salah, even if it is delayed some time after the Salah. This is the view of most fuqaha', but for al-Hanafi it is desirable (mustahab) not to delay it, so if he wants to spend a long time in al-Azkaar, he do the sunnah ba'diyyah then complete al-Azkaar. Allah Almighty knows best

From what distance can i go in front of a person while he is praying. السؤال: ما حكم المرور أمام المصلي؟ الجواب: يحرم المرور بين يدي المصلي، وهو ما بين موضع سجوده وموضع وقوفه، وهي مقدرة بـ (متر ونصف تقريبا)، وقد قال النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم: "لو يعلم المار بين يدي المصلي ماذا عليه لكان أن يقف أربعين خيرا له من أن يمر بين يديه". قال أبو النضر - وهو أحد الرواة -: لا أدري أقال: أربعين يوما أو شهرا أو سنة. أخرجه البخاري ومسلم. وينبغي على المصلي أن يتخذ سترة (حاجز)، وفي هذه الحالة يجوز المرور من بعد السترة. والله تعالى أعلم.
  Thank you for your question. Passing in front of the worshiper (the one who is praying) is haram , in the area between the spot where he puts his forehead when he prostrates and where he stands (estimated 1.5 meters), as the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: "If the one who passes in front of a person who is praying knew what (a burden of sin) he bears, it would be better for him to stand for forty rather than pass in front of him." Abu'l-Nadar - one of the narrators - said: I do not know whether he said forty days or months or years. (al-Bukhaari, Muslim).   The worshiper should put a barrier (sutra) in front of him, to serve as a screen, in this case it is permissible to pass beyond the sutra. Allah Almighty knows best.
