Views of Islamic scholars and other dignitaries

1. Maulana Saleem Chishti Sahib

(Naazim Jami’a-tul-Furqan, Jampur, District Rajanpur)

اَلْحَمْدُلِلّٰہ عَزَّوَجَلَّ! I have had the privilege to see ‘Mahnamah Faizan-e-Madinah’ first time. All topics are easy to understand, meaningful and well-written covering various dimensions. Hopefully, it will be a source of limitless benefit for people.

2. Qazi Muhammad Hasan Sahib

(Head Teacher, Dar-ul-‘Uloom Ghausiyyah Ma’soomiyah, Kallar Syedan, Rawalpindi)

Dawat-e-Islami, a Madani movement of devotees of Rasool, has been committedly rendering its services for the true propagation and publication of Islam. While every department of Dawat-e-Islami is functioning properly, ‘Mahnamah Faizan-e-Madinah’ is also reforming the beliefs and deeds of people. Every topic of this magazine is worth-appreciating. Blessed ideologies and notions of Imam of Ahl-us-Sunnah Ahmad Raza Khan رَحْمَۃُ اللہِ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ are being promoted through it. I make Du’a in the blessed court of Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ to grant all of us Taufeeq to read it every month and grant Ameer-e-Ahl-e-Sunnat a long life for the benefit of the Muslims. Aameen

Views of Islamic brothers

1. Like other departments of Dawat-e-Islami, ‘Mahnamah Faizan-e-Madinah’ not only discusses various social evils but also matchlessly presents their solution. (Tabish Anwar, Saddar, Bab-ul-Madinah Karachi)

2. Mahnamah Faizan-e-Madinah’, adorned with a brief and comprehensive content, is moving on the way to progress with each passing day by the favour of Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ. May Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ bless ‘Mahnamah Faizan-e-Madinah’ with further success. (Ahmad Qaadiri, Moro, Bab-ul-Islam, Sindh)

Views of Madani children

1. I read ‘Mahnamah Faizan-e-Madinah’. The Arabic content of Mahnamah is provided with diacritical marks, so, it becomes easy for us (children) to read. (Yusuf Khan, Kohat)

2. By reading the fictitious story namely ‘Lazy attitude towards studies’, published in Jumadal Aula, I learned the moral lesson that the preparation of exam should be started before 2, 3 months of the examination. اِنْ شَآءَ اللہ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ, I will act upon it so that I may secure good marks. (Abdul Jabbar, Hub Chowki, Balochistan)

Views of Islamic sisters

1. I read ‘Mahnamah Faizan-e-Madinah’, published in Jumadal Aula. All topics were well-written, comprehensive and related to the titles. (Bint-e-Talha, Garden, Bab-ul-Madinah, Karachi)

2. Topics of ‘Mahnamah Faizan-e-Madinah’ are always valuable and worth-reading. I had a wish to see any topic related to ‘Blessed attributes of the Beloved Rasool صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ ’.  I am very glad now to see the start of series entitled ‘Zikr about my Beloved Rasool’ from the Mahnamah of Jumadal Aula, مَاشَآءَ اللہ عَزَّوَجَلَّ. (Umm-e-Jibran, Markaz-ul-Awliya, Lahore)

Can a traveller lead Friday Salah?

Question: What do blessed Islamic scholars and Muftis say about the following issue? Can a traveller lead Friday Salah or not? (Questioner: Usman Raza)

بِسْمِ اللّٰہِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّ حِیْمِ

اَلْجَوَابُ بِعَوْنِ الْمَلِکِ الْوَھَّابِ اَللّٰھُمَّ ھِدَایَۃَ الْحَقِّ وَالصَّوَابِ

Answer: If a traveller is capable of leading a Salah, i.e. he fulfils all the conditions of becoming the Imam, then he can lead Friday Salah as well provided that all the conditions of Friday Salah are met. The conditions of becoming the Imam include being Muslim, sane and adult; being able to recite the Holy Quran with correct pronunciation; being a Sunni with correct beliefs, being free from a Shari’ah-declared disability and from open transgression. Although Friday Salah is not Fard for such a traveller, yet he can lead it provided the conditions are met. It is not necessary that Friday Salah be Fard for the Imam leading it. Every such person can lead Friday Salah who is capable of becoming the Imam of men in other Salahs. In accordance with the explanation on the part of Islamic scholars, a traveller can also lead the Salah if he fulfils the conditions of being the Imam.

Remember, one of the important conditions of Friday Salah is that the Imam must be the Islamic ruler or the one commanded or permitted by the Islamic ruler. Nowadays, the Muslim man who has been chosen by a group of Muslims out of necessity can also lead Friday Salah. So a traveller who is capable of leading Salah and has been chosen by a group of Muslims can also become the Imam provided other conditions of Friday Salah have also been met. If he is not chosen by them, he cannot become the Imam of Friday Salah by himself.


As mentioned above, one of the conditions of becoming the Imam is to be free from Shari’ah-declared disability. A Shari’ah-declared disabled person is the one who has the ‘Uzr [disease] of breaking wind or passing drops of urine, etc.  Such a person can be a Shari’ah-declared disabled person only when the complete time of one Salah passes in such a way that he is unable to make Wudu and offer only Fard Salah without suffering from that ‘Uzr [disease]. For example, if someone suffers from the disease of passing the drops of urine and he continues to suffer from this condition throughout the time of ‘Asr, i.e. from ‘Asr to Maghrib and the passing of urine drops does not stop even for the amount of time in which he can offer only Fard Rak’aat of ‘Asr Salah after making Wudu and wearing clean clothes, then such a person is a Shari’ah-declared disabled person. The commandment of Shari’ah for such a person is that he must make Wudu once during the time of a Salah and then he can offer as many Salahs as he wants. His Wudu will not become invalid because of this ‘Uzr (urine drops). Such a person will remain a Shari’ah-declared disabled person as long as he passes a single drop of urine even once during the time of the Salah. However, if he does not pass even a single drop of urine during the whole period of the time of a Salah, then he will no longer remain a Shari’ah-declared disabled person. If he gets into the previous state again, then he will become a Shari’ah-declared disabled person again.

The above-mentioned details about a Shari’ah-declared disabled person show that his Wudu will remain valid within the period of the time of Salah out of necessity despite him getting into such a state in which Wudu usually becomes invalid. His own Salah will be valid, but he cannot lead the Salah of a “healthy person” i.e. one who is not a Shari’ah-declared disabled person.
