Questions and answers of Madani Muzakarah

Ruling on making the intention of Salah in the heart

Question 1: Is it necessary to make the intention of Salah verbally or it may also be made in the heart?

Answer: One of the preconditions of Salah includes intention which must exist in the heart. If there is no intention in the heart, just verbal utterance is of no use. However, it is better to make a verbal intention provided it exists in the heart as well. (Durr-e-Mukhtar, vol. 2, pp. 111 to 113; derived from Madani Muzakarah, 1 Rabi-ul-Aakhir 1439 Hijri)

صَلُّوْا عَلَی الْحَبِیْب!                    صَلَّی اللہُ عَلٰی مُحَمَّد

Ruling on Hajj sermon

Question 2: Will the Hajj of a person be valid, if he does not listen to the sermon of Hajj?

Answer: Yes, Hajj will be valid. Listening to the sermon of Hajj is not a condition for Hajj. (In order to know about the method and rulings of Hajj, read the book ‘Rafeeq-ul-Haramayn’ published by Maktaba-tul-Madinah).

وَاللہُ اَعْلَمُ   عَزَّوَجَلَّ   وَ رَسُوْلُہٗ اَعْلَم   صَلَّی اللّٰہُ عَلَیْہِ واٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّم

Is it allowed to sacrifice deer?

Question 3: Is it allowed to sacrifice a deer as an Islamic Wajib ritual?

Answer: This is not allowed for the reason that the deer is a wild animal. If it is sacrificed, the sacrifice will not be valid. (Fatawa Hindiyyah, vol. 5, pp. 297) However, if obtained by means of Shari’ah-approved slaughter, the meat of the deer will be Halal. The kebabs[1] made from the meat of a deer are very tasty. But the pleasure which is derived from devotion to the Holy Prophet صَلَّى اللّٰەُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم is much greater. In one of his couplets, A’la Hadrat رَحْمَةُ اللّٰەِ عَلَيْه said:

جلی جلی بُو سے اس کی پیدا ہے سوزش عشقِ چشم والا

کبابِ آہُو میں بھی نہ پایا مزہ جو دل کے کباب میں ہے

(Hadaiq-e-Bakhshish, pp. 180)

وَاللہُ اَعْلَمُ   عَزَّوَجَلَّ   وَ رَسُوْلُہٗ اَعْلَم   صَلَّی اللّٰہُ عَلَیْہِ واٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّم

صَلُّوْا عَلَی الْحَبِیْب!                    صَلَّی اللہُ عَلٰی مُحَمَّد

Women having haircut

Question 4: Are women allowed to have a haircut?

Answer: Following fashion, if women have such a haircut which is like the hairstyle of men or transgressing women, this is not allowed. However, if the hairs are too long, then women are allowed to have a haircut below shoulders in a way that is not like the hairstyle of men or transgressing women. For example, in order to come out of the state of Ihram of Hajj and ‘Umrah, it is Wajib for a woman to cut the hairs of the one-fourth part of her head equivalent to a phalanx [i.e. a small bone in a finger]. (Madani Muzakarah, 3 Rabi’-ul-Awwal 1440 Hijri)

وَاللہُ اَعْلَمُ   عَزَّوَجَلَّ   وَ رَسُوْلُہٗ اَعْلَم   صَلَّی اللّٰہُ عَلَیْہِ واٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّم

صَلُّوْا عَلَی الْحَبِیْب!                    صَلَّی اللہُ عَلٰی مُحَمَّد

Ruling on fault in a sacrificial animal

Question 5: If one tooth of a sacrificial animal is broken, will its sacrifice be valid?

Answer: Although valid, such a sacrifice will be Makruh. It is stated in Bahar-e-Shari’at: The sacrificial animal should be free from faults. If there is only a minor fault, the sacrifice will be valid but it will be Makruh. If there is a big fault, the sacrifice will not be valid. (Bahar-e-Shari’at, vol. 3, pp. 340) (In order to know about the method and rulings of Islamic ritual sacrifice, read the booklet ‘Ablaq Ghoray Suwar’ [Piebald Horse Rider].

وَاللہُ اَعْلَمُ   عَزَّوَجَلَّ   وَ رَسُوْلُہٗ اَعْلَم   صَلَّی اللّٰہُ عَلَیْہِ واٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّم

Question 6: Should a person calculate the years of his age according to the Islamic calendar year or the Gregorian calendar year?

Answer: Years of age should be calculated by means of the Islamic calendar (Hijri) year because all Islamic commandments apply to a person as per the Islamic year. (Madani Muzakarah, 6 Rabi’-ul-Aakhir 1439 Hijri)

وَاللہُ اَعْلَمُ   عَزَّوَجَلَّ   وَ رَسُوْلُہٗ اَعْلَم   صَلَّی اللّٰہُ عَلَیْہِ واٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّم

‘Umrah by reward money

Does performing funeral rites invalidate Wudu?

Question 8: Is a person allowed to offer another Salah with the Wudu that he has already offered a funeral Salah with?

Answer: This is allowed. Some people are under the impression that Wudu becomes invalid because of approaching or shouldering or giving Ghusl to a deceased person. This is not right. In fact, it is Mustahab to make Wudu after one has given Ghusl to the deceased person or shouldered him. If someone does not make Wudu and offers Salah with the same Wudu, this is not a sin. It is permissible. (Madani Muzakarah, 8 Rabi’-ul-Aakhir 1439 Hijri)

وَاللہُ اَعْلَمُ   عَزَّوَجَلَّ   وَ رَسُوْلُہٗ اَعْلَم   صَلَّی اللّٰہُ عَلَیْہِ واٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّم

صَلُّوْا عَلَی الْحَبِیْب!                    صَلَّی اللہُ عَلٰی مُحَمَّد

Is it allowed to sell bile of animal?

Question 9: In order to treat some disease, etc. some people buy the bile of an animal. They also contact the organizers of Islamic ritual collective sacrifice for obtaining bile. The question, is it allowed to sell the bile of an animal?

Answer: Bile, i.e. liquid from the gall bladder is impure like urine and blood. (Fatawa Razawiyyah, vol. 20, pp. 237; summarised) As the sale and purchase of urine and blood are not valid according to Shari’ah[2], the sale and purchase of bile are also invalid.

وَاللہُ اَعْلَمُ   عَزَّوَجَلَّ   وَ رَسُوْلُہٗ اَعْلَم   صَلَّی اللّٰہُ عَلَیْہِ واٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّم
