Ruling on performing one Sajdah in place of two

Question 1: If someone performs one Sajdah in place of two Sajdahs, will his Salah be valid?

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

How is it to dig grave in order to take out the Holy Quran?

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

How is it to recite Tasbih while counting on the fingers of both the hands?

Question 3: Some people say that after [performing] Salah, Tasbih-e-Fatimah should be recited while counting on the fingers of right hand, it should not be recited while counting on the fingers of left hand, is it correct?

Answer: You can recite Tasbih-e-Fatimah, i.e. ‘سُبْحٰنَ اللہِ’ 33 times, ‘اَلْحَمْدُلِلّٰہِ’ 33 times and ‘اَللّٰہُ اَکْبَر’ 34 times while counting on the fingers of both the hands, as it is stated in a blessed Hadees, ‘Count on (your) fingers, as they will be questioned and they will be given power of speaking (i.e., they will testify).’ (Sunan-ut-Tirmizi, vol. 5, pp. 338, Hadees 3594)

Therefore, we should recite (Tasbih) while counting on the fingers of both the hands so that they testify in our favour. (Madani Muzakarah, 9th Muharram-ul-Haraam 1440 AH)

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

Burying the deceased

Question 5: Is burying a Muslim deceased a Fard (obligatory), Wajib (compulsory) or Sunnah act?

Answer: It is stated in Bahar-e-Shari’at: It is Fard-e-Kifayah to bury the deceased and it is not permissible to lay the deceased on the ground and enclose it by all four sides by building a wall around it. (Bahar-e-Shari’at, vol. 1, pp. 842)

Fard-e-Kifayah refers to that Fard (obligation) if some of the people perform it, all others become exempted from performing it. However, if none of those who came to know (about the demise) performed this (Fard-e-Kifayah) act, then everyone will become sinner, such as giving Ghusl to the deceased, burying and performing funeral Salah, etc. (Al-Mabsoot lis-Sarakhsee, vol. 15, pp. 293; Madani Muzakarah, 1st Muharram-ul-Haraam 1438 AH)

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

A ruling on Tilawat (recitation) of the Holy Quran

Question 10: What is the ruling on reciting ‘بِسْمِ اللہِ’ in Surah At-Taubah?

Answer: If you are to start recitation from Surah At-Taubah, recite both ‘اَعُوْذُ بِاللہِ’ and ‘بِسْمِ اللہِ’, otherwise during the recitation it is not necessary to recite ‘بِسْمِ اللہِ’ before Surah At-Taubah. (Bahar-e-Shari’at, vol. 1, pp. 551) However, if someone recites (it), there is no sin.

(In order to know the manners of Tilawat (recitation) of the Holy Quran, go through the booklet ‘Tilawat ki Fazeelat’ [Excellence of Reciting the Holy Quran] published by Maktaba-tul-Madinah). (Madani Muzakarah, 11th Muharram-ul-Haraam, 1440 AH)
