Ruling on forgetfully offering Salah in impure clothes

Ruling on forgetfully offering Salah in impure clothes

Question 1: If someone forgetfully offers Salah in impure clothes, will his Salah be valid or not?

Answer: If someone forgetfully offers Salah in the clothes soiled with impurity[1] in so much quantity that the Salah becomes invalid and later on he becomes aware that his clothes are impure, he will have to offer the Salah again. If he becomes aware of it after the time of Salah has passed, he will have to offer it with the intention of Qa’dah.

صَلُّوْا عَلَی الْحَبِیْب!                    صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلٰی مُحَمَّد

Sharp-tongued old people

Question 2: It is said that the old have powerful [i.e. sharp] tongues. Is it correct?

Answer: In the old age, the body of a person weakens and his gait [i.e. way of walking] becomes slow but the tongues of some old people become powerful and fearless [i.e. they have sharp tongues.] A young man feels a little fear while arguing with anyone thinking that he may be beaten if he says something improper. But the old say whatever comes into their minds without any fear whether it is proper or improper. An old person perhaps thinks that nobody will beat him as he is old; and even if anyone rebukes him, a few others will come to favour him, saying “Drop the matter! He is an old man. Let him go.” Perhaps this is the reason why it is said that the old have powerful tongues.

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

How is it to wash clothes on Friday?

Question 5: Does washing clothes on Friday cause severe poverty?

Answer: No. I have read many causes severe of poverty. As far as I can remember, I have never read that washing clothes on Friday causes severe poverty at home. (In order to know about the causes of severe poverty, read the booklet “Tangdasti kay Asbab or Un ka Hal” published by Maktaba-tul-Madinah.)

How is it to swear by one’s parents, sibling, etc.?

Question 6: Some people swear by their parents, sibling, etc. and ask others to swear such oaths. Are they valid oaths?

Answer: The oath sworn to anyone other than Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ is not a valid oath. For example, I swear by my parents, I swear by my sibling, or I swear on your head or I swear on your life; these are not valid oaths. If anyone swears an oath with any of the names and attributes of Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ, so it will be a valid oath. For example, I swear by Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ, or I swear by Rahman, or I swear by the Reverence and Greatness of Almighty Allah. (In order to know vital information about oath, read the booklet “Qasam kay Baaray mayn Madani Phool” published by Maktaba-tul-Madinah.)

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

How is it to say that Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ is the Owner and Creator of Arsh?

Question 7:  How is it to say that Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ is the Owner and Creator of Arsh?

Answer: It is permissible because Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ is the Owner as well as the Creator of Arsh. However, it is Kufr [i.e. disbelief] to say that Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ lives on the Arsh or His House is on the Arsh. Allamah Sa’duddin Mas’ood Taftazaani رَحْمَةُ اللّٰہِ  تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه stated: Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ is free from being in any house. And when He عَزَّوَجَلَّ is free from being in any house, He عَزَّوَجَلَّ is also free from direction. Similarly, He عَزَّوَجَلَّ is also free from being above and below. (Sharah ‘Aqa`id, pp. 132) To declare any place for Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ [i.e. to say that Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ lives at a certain place] is Kufr. (Bahr-ur-Ra`iq, vol. 5, pp. 203) (In order to know important information about blasphemous sentences, read the book “Kufriyah Kalimaat kay Baaray mayn Suwal Jawab”, published by Maktaba-tul-Madinah.)

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

Fatawa of A’la Hadrat  رَحْمَةُ اللّٰہِ  تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه

Question 8: How many Fatawa did A’la Hadrat Imam Ahmad Raza Khan write?

Answer: My master Imam of the Ahl-e-Sunnah Imam Ahmad Raza Khan رَحْمَةُ اللّٰہِ  تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه wrote thousands of Fatawa. He wrote the first Fatwa about “Hurmat-e-Rada’at” at the age of 13 years, 10 months and 4 days. Noticing that his son had expertise in Islamic jurisprudence, his father Ra`ees-ul-Mutakallimeen Maulana Naqi Ali Khan رَحْمَةُ اللّٰہِ  تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه assigned him the rank of the Mufti. Despite being assigned the rank of the Mufti, A’la Hadrat kept having Fatawa checked by his respected father for a long period of time. He would take so much care that he would not issue the Fatawa without endorsement from his father. The Fatawa issued by A’la Hadrat رَحْمَةُ اللّٰہِ  تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه for ten years could not be found in the form of a collection. After ten years, the Fatawa were collected and were titled “اَلْعَطَایَا النَّبَوِیَّہ فِی الفَتَاوَی الرَّضَوِیَّہ They are contained in 30 volumes. I am of the opinion that no other Mufti in the world may have issued so many Fatawa in the Urdu language. These thirty volumes contain more or less twenty two thousand (22000) pages with six thousand eight hundred and forty seven (6847) questions and answers and two hundred and six (206) booklets and thousands of other rulings. (According to the latest research and sequence completed in 1438 AH, Fatawa Razawiyyah without Arabic and Persian translation, are comprised of 22 volumes including 100 new Fatawa and 16 booklets.) If somebody wants to know how great Mufti A’la Hadrat was, he is advised to study the Fatawa of A’la Hadrat رَحْمَةُ اللّٰہِ  تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه. He will definitely be impressed. In his Fatawa, my master A’la Hadrat رَحْمَةُ اللّٰہِ  تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه described excellent points. It amazes readers to think that how A’la Hadrat رَحْمَةُ اللّٰہِ  تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه wrote them.
