Reciting Du’as by looking at them [i.e. looking at the written Du’a] during funeral Salah

Question 1: What have respected Islamic scholars ruled on the following issue? A person has not learnt the Du’as of  the funeral Salah by heart. If he recites the Du’as by looking at them inscribed on the wall in front of him; will his Salah be valid?

Questioner: Hafeez Iqbal (Jauhar Town, Lahore)

بِسْمِ اللّٰہِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِیْمِ

اَلْجَوَابُ بِعَوْنِ الْمَلِکِ الْوَھَّابِ اَللّٰھُمَّ  ھِدَایَۃَ الْحَقِّ وَالصَّوَابِ

Answer: If a person who has not memorized the Du’as of the funeral Salah recites them by looking at them on the front wall; his Salah will become invalid. This is because learning anything [within Salah] by such a means which is not a part of Salah invalidates not only normal Salah but also the funeral Salah.

Vow-related Nafl Salah

Question 2: What have respected Islamic scholars and Muftis ruled on the following issue? An Islamic sister vows to offer one hundred Rak’aat of Nafl Salah subject to the accomplishment of such-and-such task. Now the task has been accomplished. Is she required to offer all hundred Rak’aat of vow-related Nafl Salah consecutively the same day or is she allowed to offer them on different days, i.e. some today, some the next day and some after some days? Is she allowed to do so or not?

Note: When making intention, she did not specify whether she would offer them consecutively or separately.

Questioner: An Islamic sister from Saddar Karachi

بِسْمِ اللّٰہِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِیْمِ

اَلْجَوَابُ بِعَوْنِ الْمَلِکِ الْوَھَّابِ اَللّٰھُمَّ  ھِدَایَۃَ الْحَقِّ وَالصَّوَابِ

Answer: In the situation mentioned in the question, the Islamic sister did not set out the condition of offering Nafl Salah consecutively or separately nor did she include it in her intention whether to offer them consecutively or separately. What she did was to make an unconditional intention of one hundred Nafl Salah. Therefore, in case of the accomplishment of the task which she had made a vow for, she may offer Nafl Salah bit by bit. What is necessary for her is that she must offer one hundred Nafl Salah no matter separately or consecutively, as is the case with the vow of fasts. If a person unconditionally vows to observe ten fasts, he has the choice whether to observe them consecutively or separately.
