Benefit: Ramaḍān - The Ruling on Spending the Latter Part of the Nights of Ramaḍān Engaged in Recreation
In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy
Faṭwá Series for Ramaḍān 2016 - featuring selected faṭāwá by Shaykh Aḥmad ibn Yaḥyá al-Najmī (رحمه الله).
[A]: This is wasting time. It is an opportunity to perform act of worship since the people are engaged in prayer, recitation [of the Qurʾān] and the revision of knowledge during that time, while some are spending it playing football and games. Thus, this is wasting time without a doubt. Furthermore, they sleep until just before Maghrib supposedly missing the Fajr, Ẓuhr and ʿAṣr prayers; hence, this is a calamity, what a grave calamity!
Shaykh Aḥmad ibn Yaḥyá al-Najmī (رحمه الله).
