Aqeeqah meat

Sajdah Tilawat for non-pubescent children

Question 1: Does Sajdah Tilawat become Wajib for non-pubescent children when they recite the Ayah of Sajdah?

Answer: Sajdah Tilawat does not become Wajib for non-pubescent children. However, they should be motivated to perform Sajdah Tilawat so that they perform it after they become adult. If a non-pubescent child recites the Ayah of Sajdah and an adult hears it, then Sajdah Tilawat will become Wajib for the adult.

(Madani Muzakarah, 13 Rajab-ul-Murajjab, 1436 Hijri)

وَاللہُ اَعْلَمُ   عَزَّوَجَلَّ   وَ رَسُوْلُہٗ اَعْلَم    صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ

صَلُّوْا عَلَی الْحَبِیْب!                    صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلٰی مُحَمَّد

‘Aqeeqah meat

Question 2: Are grandparents allowed to eat the meat of ‘Aqeeqah animal?

Answer: Yes. Every Muslim is allowed to eat it, including grandparents. People have adopted strange customs and tradition regarding it. For instance, some say ‘person so-and-so can eat the meat of ‘Aqeeqah animal and person so-and-so cannot’. In fact, Shari’ah does not authorize such misconceptions. All Muslims are allowed to eat it. It is stated in Bahar-e-Shari’at: Whether the uncooked meat [of ‘Aqeeqah animal] is distributed among the poor, relatives, friends or it is sent to them after cooking or it is served to them in a ceremony, all of these actions are permissible. It is better not to break the bones of the animal. The meat should be separated from the bones without breaking them. This is a good omen for the safety of the child. However, there is no harm even if the meat is cut into pieces after breaking the bones. The meat can be cooked as you wish but sweet meat, if cooked, is an omen for the good manners of the child. (Bahar-e-Shari’at, vol. 3, pp. 357)

One method of cooking sweetened meat is to cook it with beetroots. Beetroot is sweet and sugar is also produced from it, so it will sweetened the meat. Secondly, add sugar or honey to the meat, and it will become sweet. (Madani Muzakarah, 14 Zul-Hijja-til-Haraam, 1436 Hijri)

Answer: ‘Yameen’ means ‘the blessed one’. The name of one of the companions of the Holy Nabi صَلَّى اللّٰەُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم was also Yameen. Therefore, naming anyone Yameen is good. (Madani Muzakarah, 9 Muharram-ul-Haraam, 1440 Hijri)

Wisdom of reciting Durood-e-Razawiyyah

Question 5: You[1] recite Durood-e-Razawiyyah after the Ayah of Durood. What is the wisdom of it?

Answer: Any Salat upon Nabi صَلَّى اللّٰەُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم may be recited after the Ayah of Durood. However, I recite Durood-e-Razawiyyah for the reason that it contains Durood as well as Salam. It consists of three Duroods: (1) صَلَّی اللّٰہُ عَلَی النَّبِیِّ الْاُمِّیِّ وَاٰلِہٖ (2) صَلَّی اللّٰہُ عَلَیْہِ وَسَلَّم (3) صَلٰوۃً وَّ سَلَامًا عَلَیْكَ یَا رَسُوْلَ اللّٰہ. (Madani Muzakarah, 19 Rabi’-ul-Aakhir, 1437 Hijri)

وَاللہُ اَعْلَمُ   عَزَّوَجَلَّ   وَ رَسُوْلُہٗ اَعْلَم    صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ

صَلُّوْا عَلَی الْحَبِیْب!                    صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلٰی مُحَمَّد

How is it to touch the Holy Quran, wrapped up in a cover, without Wudu?

Question 6: Is it allowed to lift the Holy Quran, wrapped up in a cover, without Wudu?

Answer: It is allowed. However, apart from the cover, if there is a piece of cloth sewn onto the copy of the Holy Quran like a plastic covering and is permanently attached with the copy of the Holy Quran, then it is not permissible to touch and to lift it without Wudu. (Madani Muzakarah, 2 Rabi’-ul-Aakhir, 1438 Hijri)

وَاللہُ اَعْلَمُ   عَزَّوَجَلَّ وَ رَسُوْلُہٗ اَعْلَم    صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ

صَلُّوْا عَلَی الْحَبِیْب!                    صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلٰی مُحَمَّد

Ruling on reciting any other Durood in place of Durood Ibraheemi in Salah

Question 7: If someone recites any other Durood in place of Durood Ibraheemi after reciting Attahiyyaat [اَلتَّحِیَّات] in Salah, then what’s the ruling on it?

Answer: After reciting Attahiyyaat [اَلتَّحِیَّات], it is a Sunnah to recite Salat-upon-Nabi صَلَّى اللّٰهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم in the last Qa’dah of Fard, Witr and Sunnat-ul-Muakkadah Salahs as well as in both the Qa’dahs of Nafl and Sunnat Ghayr Muakkadah Salahs. However, it is preferable to recite Durood Ibraheem. If someone recites any other Salat upon Nabi صَلَّى اللّٰہُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم instead of Durood-e-Ibraheemi, the Sunnah will be fulfilled and the Salah will also be valid. (Madani Muzakarah, 8 Ramadan-ul-Mubarak, 1437 Hijri)

وَاللہُ اَعْلَمُ   عَزَّوَجَلَّ   وَ رَسُوْلُہٗ اَعْلَم    صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ

صَلُّوْا عَلَی الْحَبِیْب!                    صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلٰی مُحَمَّد

When should Azan be uttered in the ear of a newborn baby?

Question 8: When should Azan be uttered in the ear of a baby after the birth?

Answer: There should be no delay in uttering Azan in the ear of a newborn baby as this may cause epilepsy. After the baby has been born, it is better to bathe it with lukewarm [i.e. slightly warm] water. Then, Azan should be uttered four times in the right ear and Iqamah three times in the left one. Calamities will be averted, اِنْ شَـآءَ اللّٰہ عَزَّوَجَلَّ. (Bahar-e-Shari’at, vol. 3, pp. 355; Madani Muzakarah, 25 Zul-Hijja-til-Haraam, 1436 Hijri)

وَاللہُ اَعْلَمُ   عَزَّوَجَلَّ   وَ رَسُوْلُہٗ اَعْلَم    صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ

صَلُّوْا عَلَی الْحَبِیْب!                    صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلٰی مُحَمَّد
