Shar’i rulings regarding Islamic sisters

Where should women offer Nafl Salah after Tawaf?

Question 1: What do blessed ‘Ulama [Islamic scholars] state regarding the following matter: After Tawaf, offering two Rak’aat Nafl Salah near Maqaam-e-Ibraheem is Mustahab. Is the ruling same for women or should they offer these two Rak’aat Nafl at some other place?

بِسْمِ اللّٰہِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِیْمِ

اَلْجَوَابُ بِعَوْنِ الْمَلِکِ الْوَھَّابِ اَللّٰھُمَّ  ھِدَایَۃَ الْحَقِّ وَالصَّوَابِ

Answer: If there is a risk of getting mixed with men and coming into contact with them due to a huge crowd at Maqaam-e-Ibraheem, for a woman, the ruling on the Nafl of Tawaf states that she should not offer this Nafl Salah at Maqaam-e-Ibraheem. Instead, she should offer it at such place where there is no risk of coming into contact with men. However, if there is no risk of coming into contact with men at Maqaam-e-Ibraheem, it is Mustahab even for a woman to offer this Nafl Salah at Maqaam-e-Ibraheem. Same is the ruling on doing the Istilaam of Hajar-e-Aswad and climbing Mount Safa. (Durr-e-Mukhtar ma’ Rad-dul-Muhtar, vol. 3, pp. 630; Bahr-ul-‘Ameeq, vol. 2, pp. 1248)

وَاللہُ اَعْلَمُ   عَزَّوَجَلَّ   وَ رَسُوْلُہٗ اَعْلَم   صَلَّی اللّٰہُ عَلَیْہِ واٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّم

Can the husband lower his wife into the grave?

Question 2: What do blessed ‘Ulama state regarding the following matter: Some people say that it is not permissible for the husband to lower his wife into the grave. Is it really correct? Please guide us.

بِسْمِ اللّٰہِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِیْمِ

اَلْجَوَابُ بِعَوْنِ الْمَلِکِ الْوَھَّابِ اَللّٰھُمَّ  ھِدَایَۃَ الْحَقِّ وَالصَّوَابِ

Answer: It is permissible for the husband to lower his wife into the grave after her death. Similarly, shouldering her Janazah and looking at her are also permissible. However, it is impermissible [for the husband] to touch the body of [his] wife directly without anything in between.

It is stated in Fatawa Razawiyyah: It is permissible for the husband to look at the face or the body of his wife after her death, either inside or outside the grave, to lower her into the grave, and [to shoulder] the Janazah [also as it] is shouldered even by non-Mahrams. However, it is impermissible for the husband to touch her body directly without anything in between.(Fatawa Razawiyyah, vol. 9, pp. 138)

وَاللہُ اَعْلَمُ   عَزَّوَجَلَّ   وَ رَسُوْلُہٗ اَعْلَم   صَلَّی اللّٰہُ عَلَیْہِ واٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّم
