What to do if the wound of a dead body bleeds?

Question 5: If the wound of the deceased person bleeds, so how should the shroud be protected from becoming impure in this case?

Answer: Maktaba-tul-Madinah has published a book titled ‘Tajheez-o-Takfeen ka Tareeqah’. Stated on page 92 of the book is the following ruling endorsed by Dar-ul-Ifta Ahl-e-Sunnat: If a body-part of the deceased person bleeds after he has been given the bath, making the shroud impure; so neither bath will be given again nor will the shroud be changed. If such a situation arises, so neither bathing nor shrouding will be repeated. However, it is better to place cotton in a sufficient quantity onto the bleeding point so that the shroud will not be stained.

How is it to watch cartoon?

Question 10: How is it for the children to watch cartoon?

Answer: These days, cartoons are full of music, indecent scenes, useless activities and fighting and are a means of teaching children different sins. Watching cartoons causes a bad effect on the minds of children. Therefore, do not let children watch such cartoons. Instead, make them watch “Madani pearls of Ghulam Rasool[1]” which are free from music and fighting and contain words of wisdom and religious teachings. This will teach them good manners from an early age.

Question 11: Some people say that it is Fard for the Haafiz of the Quran to offer Salat-ut-Tahajjud. Is it correct?

Answer: No. Salat-ut-Tahajjud is not Fard for the Haafiz of the Quran. It was Fard for the one to whom the Holy Quran was revealed and who is the mercy for all the worlds, i.e. our Beloved and Blessed Nabi صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ. It is not Fard for anyone else in his Ummah.

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