what about salat tahajjud during journey ( Safar). Can i skip it if i travelled the whole day until late night.
Thank you for contacting us. Salat al-Tahajjud is not compulsory, whether you're resident or travelling, but it carries big virtue and great reward. Missing Salat al-Tahajjud does not constitute a sin. One is only missing out on a reward, if it is easy for him to do so, and he finds ample time in his travel schedule as well as a suitable prayer area. However, if it is not easy for him to do so and he does not find ample time in his travel schedule and a suitable prayer area, then it is better for him to leave it, so as not to inconvenience himself and inconvenience his travelling companions. Of the sunnah and optional prayers that the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) used to pray even on travel were: Sunnah Salat of Fajr, Salat al-Duha, Salat al-Tahajjud and Salat al-Witr. It is better to pray these prayers and not the other sunnah and optional prayers during travel especially if it is easy to do so and the person used to regularly perform them while resident. However, should performing them prove difficult and hard during travel, and he leaves them off, then there is no sin on him particularly on travel because travel often involves difficulty and hardship and because these prayers are not compulsory like the five compulsory prayers, and Allah knows best.

If a cloth is impure, has dried urine and semen on it. Does putting it in the standard automatic washing machine with other clothes will make it pure automatically and valid for Salah or does it needs to be first hand washed and then put into the washing machine.
Assalamu ‘alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh Thank you for contacting us. May Allah bless you and grant you tawfiq (success). Know that cleaning these clothes firstly with water and then secondly with water and soap (washing powder, etc.) in a washing machine is regarded as having rendered the clothes pure and clean from urine and semen from a Shari‘ah perspective, because in that process normal water is poured onto the clothes together with a good rub and scrub that results from the heavy spinning and friction, which is the very process of Shari‘ah purification and cleansing that removes impurities (najasat) and the ruling that ensues as a result. As such, praying in these clothes is valid after having been washed in the aforementioned manner. This is because water, which is used to wash off najasah, is regarded as impure (najis) if it is changed by the najasah not if it is not changed by the najasah, which is the case with a standard automatic washing machine as is well known. The learned scholar, Khalil (may Allah have mercy on him) says: [The ghusalah (water used to wash off impurity) that changes is impure]. In explaining this statement, the learned scholar al-Kharshi (may Allah have mercy on him) says: [Ghusalah is the water used to wash off najasah (impurity), and there is no doubt that it is impure, if it changes (due to the najasah) whether the change is by way of taste, colour or smell]. This means that if it does not change, which is the case with standard automatic washing machines, then it is not impure, and hence, the clothes are pure and clean and fine for praying in, and Allah knows best.

some people read (ثناء) in salat ul janaza instead of fatiha , is there any hadees or evidence in islam about (ثناء) in janaza?
Thank you for contacting us.This is an issue in which there is a disagreement between the scholars, the Maliki scholars said it is four takbeers, after which is supplication only, and not to recite Al-Fatihah in the funeral prayer, and their argument in that is the work of the people of Medina, and Imam Malik narrated in al-Muwatta that Abdullah Ibn Omar that he was not reciting in the funeral prayer. The Shafi'i and Hanbali scholars say it is obligatory to recite Al-Fatiha in the funeral prayer, and they have their evidence for this saying, and as the matter is differed upon by the Scholars of Islam, then the issue should be treated leniently.

What is meant by tarji in recitation of the qur'aan? Could you explain in detail, since i heard in a few lectures that it means to roll the sound of a letter multiple times in the throat, like how qari yasser al dosari recites, but I do not know if that is true. BarakAllahu feek.
Thank you for contacting us, Tarji' in recitation is a permissible type of reciting the Qur'an in a melodious voice,  as the Prophet said: "Whoever does not recite Qur'an in a nice voice is not from us," and tarji' was mentioned in Saheeh al Bukhari, : "Mu'awiya bin Qurra reported that `Abdullah bin Al-Maghaffal Al-Muzani said, "I saw Allah's Apostle on the day of the Conquest of Mecca, riding his she-camel and reciting Surat-al-Fath (48) or part of Surat-al-Fath. He recited it in a vibrating and pleasant voice. Then Mu'awiya recited as `Abdullah bin Mughaffal had done and said, "Were I not afraid that the people would crowd around me, I would surely recite in a vibrating pleasant voice as Ibn Mughaffal did, imitating the Prophet." I asked Muawiya, "How did he recite in that tone?" He said thrice, "A, A , A." .  What is meant is that we give a good voice to the Qur'an, to make it good and beautiful and interesting and so on, without turning it into a song. This should be helpful in understanding the verses and being influenced by them, rather than focusing the listener's attention on the melody and vocal performance to the point of neglecting the meanings. Also, the reader must adhere to the rules of tajweed and correct recitation. Imam al-Qurtubi said, warning from tarji'  that leads to neglecting the rulings of recitation: "Besides, while reciting the Quran, there is tatrib in random lengthening and shortening, tarji' in making the voice wave, adding hamza where there is no hamza and lengthening a vowel where there is no lengthening. Thus, one "alif" becomes a few "alifs" and one "waw" becomes a few "waws". This causes addition to the Quran, which is haram".(Tafseer al Qurtubi I/16.)

Thanks farhan السؤال: هذا الشخص الأسترالي متزوج منذ عامين وزوجته مغربية وهي لا تزال محجور في المغرب بسبب مرض الكوفيد، فإنه يسأل ماذا يفعل في هذا الوضع؟ (يبدو أنه يسأل عن الطلاق أو تعدد الزوجات لنفسه ولكن ليس واضحا فالأفضل عدم الجواب حتى يتضح) فالجواب:  وعليكم السلام ورحمة الله وبركاته، بارك الله فيك وزادك فقهًا في دينك. سؤالك غير واضح .لقد طلبت منا أن ننصحك بما يجب عليك فعله في وضعك لكن هذا ليس سؤالا فقهيا. يرجى إعادة إرسال سؤالك مع استفسارك الفقهي إذا كان هناك سؤال. والله أعلم.

Every year I paid Zakath for Gold ( I have more 85 gram) I have saving cash dirham, 8,000 (Do i need pay zakaht, or no need) Please explain?
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. In order for zakat to be due on your cash wealth, two conditions must be met:  1 - That the cash reaches the nisaab (minimum threshold) 2 - That one lunar year has passed since it reaches the nisaab.  If the money is less than the nisab, then no zakat is due on it. If it reaches the nisab, and one lunar year has passed since the time it reached the nisab, then zakat becomes due at that point. The nisab is the equivalent of 85 grams of gold or 595 grams of silver. The rate that must be paid for zakat is 1/40th of your cash (2.5%).  If you have other non-financial assets or debt they will need to be calculated as well. And Allah knows best.

Was Abdullah (the son of Abdul Muttalib of Kuraish family) the actual father of the Prophet (PBUH) ?  
Certainly, Abdullah bin Abd al-Muttalib is the actual father of the Prophet ﷺ and this was well known to Quraysh. The evidence is from Sahih Al-Bukhari: - When Suhail bin Amr came to write the treaty of peace in Al-Hudaybiyah, he said, "Write a book between us and you" . So, the Prophet (ﷺ) called the clerk and said to him, "Write: By the Name of Allah, the most Beneficent, the most Merciful." Suhail objected and said, "As for 'Beneficent,' by Allah, I do not know what it means. So write: By Your Name O Allah", The Prophet (ﷺ) said, "Write: By Your Name O Allah". Then He dictated, "This is the peace treaty which Muhammad, Allah's Messenger has concluded." Suhail objected and said, "By Allah, if we knew that you are Allah's Messenger we would not prevent you from visiting the Ka`ba, and would not fight you. So, write: "Muhammad bin `Abdullah." The Prophet (ﷺ) said, "By Allah! I am Apostle of Allah even if you people do not believe me. Write: Muhammad bin `Abdullah". This proves that the lineage of the Prophet was well known, and that He was the son of Abdullah, and Quraysh had no doubt about that. - In the dialogue that took place between Hercules and Abu Sufyan, the first question Hercules asked about the lineage of the Prophet, and Abu Sufyan's answer was "He is of noble lineage", and Abu Sufyan was not a Muslim at the time, and if there had been any doubt about the Prophet's lineage, Abu Sufyan would not have wasted the opportunity to question the truth of the Prophet's lineage, but he did not do so for fear of being accused of lying.

My daughter is now 3+ years old. Her aqiqa sacrifice is still pending. Can we still sacrifice one goat with the niyah of her aqiqa? Is there a penalty for delaying for so long? How can we make amends? Thank you  
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. Dear Questioner, Please note, the ‘Aqiqa' is a recommended Sunnah based on the hadeeth narrated from Samurh bin Jundab wherein the Messenger of Allah said: "Every boy is in pledge for his 'Aqiqa', so slaughter (the animal) for him on the seventh day, and shave his head, and give him a name" Its being a recommended Sunnah is the school of Imam Malik and the majority of scholars. Given the circumstances, if you have to delay the Aqiqa after the seventh day, then there is a dispensation due to the extreme conditions, so you can do it thereafter. Ideally this should be within the second week, or the third week, then if even if this is difficult, then it is permissible to do it anytime thereafter when things are made easy. This is the opinion of some of the scholars who say that the time of the Aqiqa is not limited by the seven days, and this is the opinion of the Shafi school of jurisprudence (madhab) and is accepted amongst them. So you can do the Aqiqah now and do not have do expiation. And Allah knows best. Thanks.
