Ruling about donating money for Isal-e-Sawab?

Question 4: Can we donate money to any poor person for Isal-e-Sawab?

Answer: Yes! You can. In fact, instead of giving him something without any purpose, it is better to give him money so he could spend that money according to his needs. For example, if his child is suffering from an illness, then he may purchase medicine for him. While giving money, there is no need to mention that it is for the Isal-e-Sawab of so and so. People should also feed hungry Muslims for Isal-e-Sawab as [the blessed act of] feeding a hungry Muslim is from those [noble] acts which make forgiveness Wajib.

Wisdom behind Salah becoming Haraam in the Makruh times?

Question 6: Why does Salah become Haraam in the Makruh times? What is the wisdom behind it?

Answer: A’la Hadrat رَحْمَةُ اللهِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه has said: The blessed Shari’ah has declared Salah Haraam at 3 times in a day so that the eagerness of Salah-loving people may keep growing. (Fatawa Razawiyyah, vol. 24, pp. 124) It means that those people who have strong keenness for offering Salah have been prevented from offering Salah during these 3 times so that their eagerness may grow even more; because since a person is prevented from performing any particular action, he appears to be more willing to do it. May Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ also make us Salah-loving people. Aameen!

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