Invalidation of Wudu due to drinking alcohol

Question 1: What do respected scholars of Islam say about the following issue? Will Wudu become invalid if a person drinks even a single drop of alcohol?

بِسْمِ اللّٰہِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِیْمِ

اَلْجَوَابُ بِعَوْنِ الْمَلِکِ الْوَھَّابِ اَللّٰھُمَّ  ھِدَایَۃَ الْحَقِّ وَالصَّوَابِ

It is Haraam to drink even a single drop of alcohol. This is also impure. Therefore, if a part of the mouth or clothing or body is soiled with alcohol equal to the quantity of a dirham either collectively or separately, so it will not be permissible to offer Salah. If offered in the same state, so it will be Wajib to repeat the Salah. If the soiled part is more than the quantity of a dirham, so Salah will not be valid at all. As for the invalidation of Wudu, so Wudu does not become invalid due to any external impurity coming into contact with the body or clothes. When anything impure is excreted from the body, then Wudu becomes invalid but there is also detail in it. However, if anyone drinks alcohol or takes any drug so much that it causes stupor to the extent of stagger, so Wudu will become invalid in this case. It should remain clear that drinking alcohol is Haraam and it is necessary for the alcoholic not to drink it again and to repent of it.

Ruling on five Salahs in Mina and stay before Hajj

Question 2: What do respected scholars of Islam say about the ruling on stay in Mina and offering five Salahs there?

بِسْمِ اللّٰہِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِیْمِ

اَلْجَوَابُ بِعَوْنِ الْمَلِکِ الْوَھَّابِ اَللّٰھُمَّ  ھِدَایَۃَ الْحَقِّ وَالصَّوَابِ

To offer five Salahs in Mina, from Salat-uz-Zuhr on the 8th of Zul-Hijjah to Salat-ul-Fajr on the 9th of Zul-Hijjah and to spend the night between the 8th and the 9th Zul-Hijjah in Mina are both Sunnat-ul-Muakkadah. If a person gives up this Sunnah, so he will commit something bad. These days, some Mu’allims do not give Hujjaj the chance of spending the entire night of ‘Arafah in Mina and of offering Salat-ul-Fajr in Mina. They take Hujjaj to ‘Arafat within the night. Of course, it involves a great hardship for the old or for those with family to go to ‘Arafat by themselves the next day after they have offered Salat-ul-Fajr. Even for the young man who is on his first visit, it is very difficult to reach his tent at ‘Arafat individually. Therefore, in this case, one may leave for ‘Arafat along with the caravan under compulsion. It should remain clear that it has been allowed here to miss Sunnat-ul-Muakkadah on this certain occasion due to a valid reason. There are many other people who spend the nights of Mina, even after Hajj, at Aziziyah or in hotels or anywhere else just for rest. They commit something bad. In such a case, there is no exemption from stay at Mina.

Is it necessary to offer Nawafil even after Nafl Tawaf?

Question 3: What do respected scholars of Islam say about the following issue? Is it necessary to offer Nawafil at the Maqaam-e-Ibraheem after performing a Nafl Tawaf that is not the Tawaf of the ‘Umrah? Can these Nawafil be offered somewhere else?

بِسْمِ اللّٰہِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِیْمِ

اَلْجَوَابُ بِعَوْنِ الْمَلِکِ الْوَھَّابِ اَللّٰھُمَّ  ھِدَایَۃَ الْحَقِّ وَالصَّوَابِ

Tawaf means moving around the blessed Ka’bah seven times with the intention of worship. After one has performed the Tawaf, it is now Wajib for him to offer two Rak’aat Salah of Tawaf no matter which type of Tawaf he has performed. Therefore, it is Wajib to offer two Rak’aat Salah of Tawaf even after a Nafl Tawaf. It is not necessary to offer this Salah at the Maqaam-e-Ibraheem but it is preferable to offer it near the Maqaam-e-Ibraheem standing behind it in such a position that the Maqaam-e-Ibraheem remain between him and the blessed Ka’bah. After the Maqaam-e-Ibraheem, the most preferable place for this Salah is the inside area of the Ka’bah, then at Hateem under the Meezab-e-Rahmah, then anywhere at Hateem, then any nearest place to the blessed Ka’bah, then anywhere in the Masjid-ul-Haraam and then anywhere in Haram-e-Makkah. Except for these places, no other place is preferable. However, if offered outside the Haram, this Salah will still be valid but will be Makruh Tanzeehi. (Sharh Lubab-ul-Manasik li Mulla Ali Qaari, pp. 156)

These days, Tawaf area is very vast and it is very difficult to offer the Salah of Tawaf at the Maqaam-e-Ibraheem at the time when there are crowds. In order to act upon this preferable deed, some people start offering Salah even among the Tawaf-performing ones, causing the Tawaf-performing ones to be shoved and to fall on the ground. When there is flexibility in this deed and one can offer Salah of Tawaf anywhere in the entire Masjid-ul-Haraam, so one should act accordingly when there are crowds. However, when there is no crowd and one gets the chance, so one should get the privilege of offering this Salah at the Maqaam-e-Ibraheem.

Are there angels on the shoulders of every human being?

Question 4: What do respected scholars of Islam say about the following issue? Are there angels on the shoulders of every human being? I have heard that there are angels on the shoulders of the Muslims only. There is no angel on the shoulders of the non-Muslims.

بِسْمِ اللّٰہِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِیْمِ

اَلْجَوَابُ بِعَوْنِ الْمَلِکِ الْوَھَّابِ اَللّٰھُمَّ  ھِدَایَۃَ الْحَقِّ وَالصَّوَابِ

There are angels with every human being whether he is a Muslim or a non-Muslim. Angels write every deed of his; good and bad both. On the Day of Judgement, the book of deeds of every person will be handed over to him and he will read it. A Muslim will be given his book of deeds in his right hand, whereas a disbeliever in his left one.

وَاللہُ اَعْلَمُ   عَزَّوَجَلَّ   وَ رَسُوْلُہ اَعْلَم   صَلَّی اللّٰہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ واٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّم

Fulfilment of supplication may take time

Question 5: What do respected scholars of Islam say about the following issue? Some Urdu-speaking people say ‘Allah kay Yahan Dayr Hay Andhayr Nahin’. How is it to say it?

بِسْمِ اللّٰہِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِیْمِ

اَلْجَوَابُ بِعَوْنِ الْمَلِکِ الْوَھَّابِ اَللّٰھُمَّ  ھِدَایَۃَ الْحَقِّ وَالصَّوَابِ

There is no harm in saying the above sentence. It implies that sometimes Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ delays the fulfilment of the supplication of a bondman due to any reason. However, when the bondman notices that his supplication has been fulfilled, so he realizes that his supplication has not been turned down. There might be some other different explanations of this sentence.

وَاللہُ اَعْلَمُ   عَزَّوَجَلَّ   وَ رَسُوْلُہ اَعْلَم   صَلَّی اللّٰہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ واٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّم
