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).

Faṭwá #12

 [Q]:Is it incumbent upon the fasting person to break his fast at sunset?

[A]: It is not incumbent [upon him to break his fast], but it is recommended, due to the statement of the Prophet (ﷺ): "Thus, whoever practiced continuous fasting [al-wiṣāl], let him carry it on until suhūr time [i.e. the following day]." [Reported by al-Dāramī.]

 [Q]: Is it incumbent upon the fasting person to have the predawn meal [i.e. saḥūr]?

[A]: No, it is not incumbent [upon him to have the saḥūr], but it is recommended [to do so] since the body is strengthened by it.

Benefit: Ramaḍān - The Ruling on Spending the Latter Part of the Nights of Ramaḍān Engaged in Recreation

Faṭwá #15

[Q]:What is the ruling on spending the latter part of the nights of Ramaḍān engaged in recreation?

[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!

Faṭwá #5

 [Q]:What is the ruling on swallowing saliva?

[A]: Swallowing saliva doesn’t break the fast, even if it is gathered [in his mouth] then swallowed, because it is something which is from the interior of his body. [Also,] it is unavoidable, like swallowing dust.

Faṭwá #9

 [Q]:What is the ruling on the fasting person kissing in Ramaḍān?

[A]: Certainly, I have dealt with this issue, and I said that there is no problem with this if the kiss is from an elderly man whose desires are weak and a kiss doesn’t stir it up. [Likewise,] there is no problem with this in the case where there occurs [from him] something from desires since it is very minimal. However, the youth whose desires are stirred up by a kiss, it may be that this kiss leads to something further; hence, it is obligatory upon him to not do it.

Faṭwá #7

 [Q]: What is the ruling of the one who loses consciousness while fasting?

[A]: The one who loses consciousness is of two types:

[1] If the loss of consciousness is temporary, such as one day, a few days or that which is like that, then this resembles sleep.
[2] If the loss of consciousness is for a long period, such as a month or two, then [the individual who experiences] this is like the insane individual whose pen is lifted (i.e he's unaccountable).

Benefit: Ramaḍān - The Ruling on Utilising Tablets in the Month of Ramaḍān to Prevent the Onset of Menses

Faṭwá Series for Ramaḍān 2016 - featuring selected faṭāwá by Shaykh Aḥmad ibn Yaḥyá al-Najmī (رحمه الله).

Faṭwá #16

[Q]:What is the ruling on using tablets solely in the month of Ramaḍān to prevent [the onset of] menses in order to fast the entire month?

[A]:
Allāh has allowed women to break their fast during the days of their menses and postnatal bleeding, and indeed, the Prophet (ﷺ) said: "I have not seen anyone more deficient in intelligence and religion than you. A cautious sensible man could be led astray by some of you." They asked: "What is deficient in her intelligence and religion?" He said: "As for her deficiency in intelligence, then verily, Allāh has made the witness of two women equal to that of one man. As for her deficiency in her religion, then certainly, she remains for days without fasting or praying.” [Reported by al-Bukhārī and Muslim.]

Therefore, Allāh has allowed the woman to break her fast during the days of her menses and postnatal bleeding. Consequently, it is not necessary for her to take tablets in order to fast the entire month, bearing in mind that these tablets —which a lot of women take— have a negative effect upon the woman, hence, it is necessary for her to avoid them.

Faṭwá #8

 [Q]: Am I exempt from fasting if I leave for my job which is 90 kilometers from my house?

[A]: Yes, this distance meets the requirement of the travel distance [i.e. it meets the requirement for a person to be considered a traveller]; [hence,] it is permissible for you to do that, even if the means [of travel] are easy and its medium are numerous. This is a concession from Allāh. The Prophet (ﷺ) said: 'It is charity which Allah has given to you, so accept His charity.' [Reported by Muslim.]

Faṭwá #13

[Q]:What is the ruling on the individual who fasts, but doesn't pray?

[A]:
If he fasts, but doesn’t pray, then I say: Fasting is not accepted from whosoever doesn't pray. Therefore, if Allāh guided him, He has forgiven him, and tawbah [forgiveness from Allāh] erases that which preceded it.

 [Q]: What is the ruling on the validity of the fast of the fasting person who eats or drinks forgetfully?

[A]: If the fasting person eats or drinks forgetfully, then his fast is not broken due to the Ḥadīth: 'If any one of you forgetfully eats or drinks [while fasting], he should complete his fasting, for it is Allāh who fed him and gave him drink.' [Reported by al-Bukhārī and Muslim.]

 [Q]: What is the ruling on the validity of the fast of the one who eats or drank thinking that it was not the time of dawn, then it became clear that it was? Or that the sun had set, then it became clear that it didn't?

[A]: If it was unclear that it was the time of dawn, so he ate or drank thinking that it wasn't, then his fast is valid and he doesn't have to make it up. As for if it was very clear that he ate and drank after dawn or before sunset, then upon him is to make it up.

 [Q]:We have with us a Muʾadhdhin who the people rely upon for the Maghrib adhān. Should he break his fast and then call the adhān, or should he call it and then break his fast, due to the people's reliance upon him?

[A]:
All of that is permitted. If he is certain of the setting of the sun and he desired to break his fast by eating a date and taking a sip of water then calling the adhān, that is permissible. Similarly, if he wanted to call the adhān and then break his fast, this is also permitted, and the latter of the two is favourable to me.

Benefit: Shaʿbān Is the Month of the Reciters

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

Shaykh ʿAbd al-Razzāq al-ʿAbbād (حفظه الله) tweeted the following on 8th May, 2016: “Make a habit of reciting the Qurʾān and pondering upon it in Shaʿbān, for the soul is upon that which it has contracted habitually. The salaf used to say when the month of Shaʿbān entered: ‘This is the month of the reciters.’”

Benefit: The Benefits of Suḥūr

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

  From the benefits of the suḥūr is that you wake up at a time of acceptance [of duʿāʾ] where our Lord descends to the lowest heaven and He says:

Is there anyone who asks so I may give to him? Is there anyone who seeks forgiveness so I may forgive him?

Likewise, from the benefits of the suḥūr is that the angels send their blessings upon those who act upon this sunnah [i.e. having suḥūr]. Also, from its benefits is that it is an opportunity for charity (to feed) those who do not have anything to eat for suḥūr.

Benefit: The Ruling on Reading the Qurʾān from the Mus‘haf during Tarāwīḥ

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy
The Question: Is it correct to read the Qurʾān from the Mus-haf during Taraaweeh? 

The Answer: For the one who is incapable of reading from memory, then there is nothing wrong if he reads from the Mus-haf during the Taraaweeh prayer. This is because he will read the entire Qurʾān from its beginning to its end. So, if he isn’t a memorizer of the Qurʾān, then he may read from the Mus-haf. Some of the Salaf (righteous predecessors) used to do this. 

Member of the Permanent Committee for Fataawa,  al-ʿAllāmah Shaykh Ṣāliḥ bin Fawzān al-Fawzān, hafiẓahullāh

The Question: What about reciting the Qurʾān from the Mus-haf (during prayer) Noble Shaykh?  

The Answer: There is no objection in that - that which is correct is that there is no objection in that. So if he needed to recite from the Mus-haf because he hasn’t memorized the Qurʾān, then there is nothing wrong if he reads from the Mus-haf. It has been established that ‘Aa’ishah’s (raḍīAllāhu ʿanhā) slave, Dhakwān, used to lead her in prayer (in Ramaḍān), reading from the Mus-haf as mentioned by Bukhārī (raḥimahullāh) in a mu’allaq report. 

Also, the original principle is that there is nothing wrong with this, and whoever forbids this, then he should bring forth evidence. The original principle has permitted recitation from memory and recitation from the Mus-haf. This is the original principle, and whoever says, “It is forbidden [to read] from the Mus-haf," then he should bring forth evidence, and the original principle is that there is no evidence. So he has forbidden the original principle, and it is the permissibility of reciting the Qurʾān from the Mus-haf. The mother of the believers has implemented this, and she is from amongst the most knowledgeable of people (raḍīAllāhu ʿanhā). 

Al-'Allāmah Shaykh ibn Bāz: http://www.binbaz.org.sa/mat/20173

The noble Shaykh Muḥammad bin Ṣāliḥ al-‘Uthaymīn (raḥimahullāh) was asked: There is a mosque whose congregation is few (in number) and there isn’t anyone from (the congregation) who is capable of reciting from memory. So, can the one who wants to lead the congregation, read with the Mus-haf by looking at it during the prayer – the night prayer in Ramaḍān, for example? 

The noble Shaykh responded by saying:Naʿam (Yes). If the Imām hasn’t memorized anything from the Qurʾān, then this action is considered permissible for him (to do) – that he reads with the Mus-haf and there is no prohibition upon him regarding that, because this action is (implemented) for the sake of finishing the prayer, and the action (implemented) to finish the prayer does not harm, and Allāh is the granter of success.

Benefit: What Is the Meaning of Iʿtikāf?

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

  Shaykh ʿAbd al-ʿAzīz ibn Bāz: It is to focus on worshipping Allāh and isolate oneself, this is the legislated isolation. Others have defined iʿtikāf to be cutting off relations with all creations to service the creator.

Shaykh Muḥammad ibn Ṣāliḥ al-ʿUthaymīn: al-Iʿtikāf is to abide in a mosque in obedience to Allāh and to get away from the people so that one may focus on being obedient to Allāh.
