Questions and answers of Madani Muzakarah

How is it to clean teeth with toothbrush and toothpaste or with tooth powder in the state of observing Sawm?

Question 1: Can teeth be cleaned in the state of Sawm with tooth powder or toothbrush and toothpaste?

Answer: One should avoid cleaning his teeth with tooth powder or toothbrush and toothpaste when observing a Sawm. Even if a particle is felt going down to the throat, the Sawm will become invalid because toothpaste has a very strong taste and tooth powder is very salty having thin particles. There is a great possibility that they can go down to the throat. Therefore they should not be used in the state of observing Sawm, but rather Miswak should be performed when observing Sawm. Performing Miswak has been mentioned in a blessed Hadees. Sayyiduna Amir Bin Rabee’ah رَضِىَ اللّٰەُ تَعَالٰی عَنْهُ has said: I have seen the Beloved Rasool صَلَّى اللّٰەُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم performing Miswak countless times in the state of observing Sawm. (Sunan-ut-Tirmizi, vol. 2, pp. 176, Hadees 725)

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

صَلُّوْا عَلَی الْحَبِیْب!                    صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلٰی مُحَمَّد

Does Wudu become invalid by cutting nails?

Question 2: Does Wudu become invalid by breaking a nail or when it breaks?

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

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

Question 5: Can a person have blood sugar test or any other blood test in the state of observing Sawm?

Ruling on the tear that comes out due to yawn

Question 6: When sometimes a person yawns, a tear comes out from his eyes. Is it pure or impure?

Answer: Tears that come out due to an eye disease are impure and they also invalidate Wudu. (Madani Muzakarah, 28 Zul-Qa’da-til-Haraam, 1436 Hijri) However, the water that comes out of eyes due to a yawn is not impure, and nor Wudu becomes invalid due to it. (Madani Muzakarah, 28 Zul-Qa’da-til-Haraam, 1436 Hijri)

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

Question 7: Some people say that one should keep a camel bone in the house because due to its presence magic etc., does not effect. So, can a camel bone be kept in the house?

Answer: It can be kept and there is no harm in it as per Shari’ah.

(Madani Muzakarah, 9 Ramadan-ul-Mubarak, 1436 Hijri)

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

Whose shapes can Satan not take in dream?

Question 8: Whose shapes can Satan not take in dream?

Answer: Satan cannot appear in dream by taking the shape of the Beloved Rasool صَلَّى اللّٰەُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم, blessed Ambiya عَلَيْهِمُ السَّلَام, Sayyiduna Abu Bakr Siddeeq رَضِىَ اللّٰەُ تَعَالٰی عَنْهُ and the Holy Ka’bah. Listen to two blessed sayings of the Beloved Rasool صَلَّى اللّٰەُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم in this regard:

    1Whoever has seen me in dream has surely seen me because Satan cannot take my and Ka’bah’s shape. (Firdaus-ul-Akhbar, vol. 3, pp. 635, Hadees 5989)

    2Whoever has seen Abu Bakr Siddeeq رَضِىَ اللّٰەُ تَعَالٰی عَنْهُ in dream has really seen him because Satan cannot take his shape. (Firdaus-ul-Akhbar, vol. 3, pp. 635, Hadees 5990)

Remember! The way Satan cannot take the shape of the Beloved Rasool صَلَّى اللّٰەُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم in dream, similarly, it cannot take the shape of other blessed Ambiya عَلَيْهِمُ السَّلَام. (Fayz-ul-Qadeer, vol. 6, pp. 170, Taht-al-Hadees: 8688; Madani Muzakarah, 6 Rabi’-ul-Aakhir, 1439 Hijri)

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

صَلُّوْا عَلَی الْحَبِیْب!                    صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلٰی مُحَمَّد

How is it to write ‘بِسْمِ اللّٰە’ or first Kalimah on the forehead of the deceased?

Question 9: Can ‘بِسْمِ اللّٰە’ or first Kalimah be written on the forehead of the deceased?

Answer: Yes, it can be written and there is a hope that the deceased will benefit from it as it is stated in Durr-e-Mukhtar: Before death, a person made a will: ‘Write ‘بِسْمِ اللّٰەِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِیْم’ on my chest and forehead’, so the same was done. Someone then had a dream in which he saw him and asked about his condition. He replied: When I was laid in the grave, the angels of torment came. When they saw ‘بِسْمِ اللّٰە’ on my forehead, they said: You have escaped the torment! (Durr-e-Mukhtar, vol. 3, pp. 186)

‘Allamah Shaami رَحْمَةُ اللّٰەِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه has said: One method is this that after giving bath and before wrapping shroud, write ‘بِسْمِ اللّٰەِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِیْم’ on the forehead and write ‘لَآ اِلٰەَ اِلَّا اللّٰەُ مُحَمَّدٌ رَّسُوْلُ اللّٰە’ on the chest with forefinger. Do not write in ink. (Rad-dul-Muhtar, vol. 3, pp. 186) No need to use diacritic marks.

Dear Islamic brothers! Whenever a Muslim dies, do write ‘بِسْمِ اللّٰەِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِیْم’ on his forehead with the forefinger as your little attention can bring about forgiveness for the deceased and the virtuous deed of sympathizing with the deceased can also bring salvation for you.

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

صَلُّوْا عَلَی الْحَبِیْب!                    صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلٰی مُحَمَّد
