Questions and answers of Madani Muzakarah

What to do if sheep for ‘Giyarhween Shareef’ is stolen

Question 1: We reared a fat-tailed sheep with the intention of performing ‘Giyarhween Shareef’ but it has been stolen. What should we do now?

Answer: Have patience and (the suggestion is that) you should convey the reward granted for patience to the Ghaus-e-A’zam رَحْمَةُ اللّٰهِ عَلَيْه. If Almighty Allah has blessed you with prosperity, (it is better) to buy another fat-tailed sheep and perform ‘Giyarhween Shareef’ so that your intention gets fulfilled. (Madani Muzakarah, 4 Rabi’-ul-Aakhir 1439 Hijri)

وَاللہُ اَعْلَمُ   عَزَّوَجَلَّ   وَ رَسُوْلُہٗ اَعْلَم   صَلَّی اللّٰہُ عَلَیْہِ واٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّم

صَلُّوْا عَلَی الْحَبِیْب!                    صَلَّی اللہُ عَلٰی مُحَمَّد

Jami’a-tul-Madinah and snowfall

Question 2: Is it allowed to take with us the snow that falls on the roof or on the courtyard of Jami’a-tul-Madinah?

Answer: This is allowed. (Madani Muzakarah, 5 Rabi’-ul-Aakhir 1439 Hijri)

Always speak truth

Question 3: How can children act upon the blessed biography of the Ghaus-e-A’zam رَحْمَةُ الـلّٰـهِ عَـلَيْه?

Answer: When children reach the age of seven years, they should start offering Salah and keeping fasts (if they have the strength to do) because the Ghaus-e-A’zam رَحْمَةُ الـلّٰـهِ عَـلَيْه would offer Salah and, as soon as he was born, he kept a fast. When children make a promise, they should keep it because the Ghaus-e-A’zam رَحْمَةُ الـلّٰـهِ عَـلَيْه would keep his promise. Always speak the truth because the Ghaus-e-A’zam رَحْمَةُ الـلّٰـهِ عَـلَيْه would always speak the truth. In fact, by the blessing of the Ghaus-e-A’zam رَحْمَةُ الـلّٰـهِ عَـلَيْه speaking the truth, the chief of the robbers along with his 60 accomplices repented and started treading the path to piety. Therefore, children and elders should always speak the truth. Never tell a lie. If a child has secretly taken anything of his brother or sister from the fridge, etc. and eaten it, he should tell the truth when asked by the mother or anyone else about it. The truth cannot be harmed. The liar is disgraced and the truthful is praised.

May Almighty Allah enable all of us to speak the truth and to refrain from lying!

صَلَّى  اللّٰهُ  عَلَيۡهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّماٰمِيۡن   بِجَاهِ   النَّبِيِّ  الۡاَمِيۡن

Reward for Wudu by means of Ghusl

Question 4: Will reward for Wudu be granted by means of Ghusl?
