  • Pausing between Tasbeeh in prayer

    Assalaamu alaykum wa rahmatullaahi wa barakaatuhu. O sheikh, I was wondering about an action of the Sunnah in the prayer regarding pausing during recitation. I know that it is from the Sunnah to pause after each Quran verse that is recited in the prayer. My question is: is it also from the Sunnah to pause in other areas of the prayer, such as when you..

  • Not touching knee with all fingers while bowing does not invalidate prayer

    Assalaamu alaykum. I am suffering from Waswaas (obsessive whisperings) at the moment and would like to know one thing. When I was praying the ‘Asr, while bowing specifically, my hands were touching my knees, but for a brief moment, one of my fingers was not, so I put it back into place. Is my prayer valid given that this is a pillar of the prayer?.. More

  • Ruling on not observing Tuma’neenah after Rukoo’

    Assalaamu alaykum. A relative regularly misses some obligatory parts of the prayer, like standing for a definite time after bowing and so on. Whenever I tell her about that, she denies it and gets angry. Sometimes, she even thinks that her prayer is valid. What is the ruling on her? Is she a disbeliever for continuing like this? How can I advise her? .. More

    Assalaamu alaykum. There is a hadith that says that Ibn ‘Umar, may Allaah be pleased with him, used to throw pebbles at people who did not perform Raf'ul-Yadayn (raising hands before and after Rukoo' [bowing]) in the prayer. Did that not cause a disturbance in the prayer? .. More

  • Mistake in saying 'Rabbana wa laka Al-Hamd' in prayer

    Assalaamu alaykum. I have noticed during prayer that my instinctive response when the imam says 'Sami Allaahu liman Hamidah' when rising from the bowing position is to say 'Rabbana wa lana Al-Hamd' instead of 'Rabbana wa laka Al-Hamd'. I am trying to make it my instinct to say the proper reply, but sometimes do not paying attention and then when I go.. More

    Can we claim with 100% certainty that doing Raf'ul Yadayn (raising hands before and after Rukoo’) was never abrogated? Or is it an issue about which difference of opinions is permissible? .. More

  • When to say 'rabbana wa laka al-hamd' in prayer

    Assalaamu alaykum Shaykh. It has been mentioned that the Sunnah is for the one following the imam in prayer to not say, 'Sami' Allaahu liman hamida', so when does he start saying, 'Rabana wa laka Al-Hamd'? Should he start saying it in the upright position or while coming up? I hope that you understand what I mean? May Allaah reward you. .. More

  • When to say Takbeer in transition from standing to Rukoo’ in prayer

    Assalaamu alaykum. I read the following on concerning the Takbeeraat of movement: "So he should start saying Takbeer (saying: Allaahu Akbar) when he starts to bow and end it before he reaches the bowing position so that his Takbeer comes between the two postures of standing and bowing." But how about if you raise your hands.. More

  • Tasbeeh in bowing and prostration is Sunnah, not obligation

    Assalaamu alaykum. I have just concluded the Maghrib prayer behind the imam (I was following behind the imam) when I got up from bowing and realized (or at least predominantly believe) that I forgot to do tasbeeh (saying 'sobhaan Allaah') even once. At the time, I was distracted with errant thoughts and did not realize until I was in the middle of the.. More
