Ruling on checking others’ mobile phones
Question: Some people have a habit of checking others’ mobile phones and reading their messages. What do you say about this act of theirs?
Answer: It is impermissible. It is stated in a blessed Hadees: One who sees the letter of his brother without taking permission, he indeed sees in the fire. Moreover, people may have several secrets in their mobile phones such as the pictures of Maharim and personal chats with them etc. It is impermissible for a stranger to see and read them without taking Shar’i permission. If someone has already done so, he or she should repent. If you give your mobile phone to someone, tell him or her: If you want, you can make a call etc., but do not see anything else in it. (Madani Muzakarah, 4 Rabi’-ul-Aakhir 1439 AH)
Efficacy of Stones
Question: Do stones have any efficacy?
Answer: Yes! Stones also have efficacy, and only Allah Almighty has kept efficacy in them because Allah Almighty is the One Who creates efficacy. The efficacy of stones has also been mentioned in blessed Ahadees. Mufti Ahmad Yar Khan Na’eemi رَحْمَةُ الـلّٰـهِ عَـلَيْه has said: The gem of agate is very blessed.
It is stated in a blessed Hadees: ‘تَخَتَّمُوْا بِالْعَقِیْقِ فَاِنَّہٗ مُبَارَکٌ’ (i.e. wear the ring of agate as it is blessed.) Furthermore, he رَحْمَةُ الـلّٰـهِ عَـلَيْه has said: The gem of black agate in a silver ring is very great.
It is stated in some narrations that the ring of yellow ruby protects against plague. In some narrations it has been stated that the ring of agate eradicates poverty. In Faiz-ul-Qadeer it has been stated: The one who wears the ring encrusted with the gem of agate will find every kind of goodness and angels will love him. One of its qualities is that a person’s heart remains peaceful at the time of a quarrel and his nose does not bleed anymore. (Madani Muzakarah, 15 Rabi’-ul-Aakhir 1440 AH)
Sleeping before ‘Isha Salah
Question: If someone sleeps before ‘Isha Salah, can he or she offer Salah at any time after getting up in the night?
Answer: The time of Isha remains until dawn. If someone gets up in the night before dawn and offers Salah at any time, the Salah will be considered to be valid. However, offering Salah with Jama’at [congregation] is Wajib. Missing Jama’at without any Shar’i compulsion is a sin. Furthermore, it is forbidden to sleep before the Isha Salah, and it is not Sunnah either.
It is stated in a blessed Hadees that the Holy Prophet صَلَّى اللّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم disliked sleeping before the Isha Salah. It means he صَلَّى اللّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم disliked such sleep due to which Jama’at is missed or Salah becomes Qada. (Madani Muzakarah, 22 Rajab-ul-Murajjab 1440 AH)
