Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said that the recitation of Surah Takaathur at night is the equivalent of having recited 1000 Qur’aanic verses. Therefore, take advantage of this very simple amal to gain maximum thawaab.
Maariful Qur’an of Hadhrat Mufti Shafee (rahmatullahi alayh)
TASBEEH OF ALLAH
Allah Ta’ala says in the Qur’aan Majeed:
“Everything in the seven heavens and the earth recite His Tasbeeh. Everything recites His Tasbeeh but you do not understand.”
Once while Hadhrat Salmaan (Radhiyallahu anhu) and Hadhrat Abu Darda’ (Radhiyallahu anhu) were together, they heard very clearly the utensil between them reciting Tasbeeh.
Q. Are teachers entitled to wages for not teaching during the lockdown period?

Q. If I miss Awwaabeen Salaat after Maghrib, can I perform it just before Isha’?
A. Awwaabeen should be performed immediately after the Maghrib Salaat. It may be performed even before Isha’.
Q. What was the position of Salaat before Mi’raaj?
A. Before Mi’raaj, two Salaats were Fardh – Fajr and Asr. Prior to these two Salaat becoming fardh, Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) would remain in the Cave of Hira in meditation for days and sometimes weeks. One day, just before Nubuwwat was conferred on him, while he was sitting outside the Cave washing his hands and face, Hadhrat Jibraeel (Alayhis salaam) appeared.
On this occasion, Jibraeel (Alayhis salaam) taught our Nabi (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) the method of performing Salaat. On this occasion, the first 5 Aayats of Surah Iqra’ were revealed. Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) was also taught to recite Surah Faatihah on this same occasion.
Q. Can Aqeeqah be made in a cow?
