AFTER THE RAMADAN PASSED….

Author: Ustadz Abu Ahmad Said Yai, MA

Before we realize it, the month of Ramadan has passed. It is too bad that we’ve to leave it for now, but it is a must; we ought to bid farewell to it, while waiting for the next Ramadan. And now we’re in the month of Syawwal, in which we are advised to fast for six days. It doesn’t have to be in consecutive, as it may be done separately, as long as it is still during the month of Syawwal. The Messenger of Allah –peace and prayer of Allah be upon him- said, :

(( مَنْ صَامَ رَمَضَانَ ثُمَّ أَتْبَعَهُ سِتًّا مِنْ شَوَّالٍ كَانَ كَصِيَامِ الدَّهْرِ )).

“Whoever performs fast during (the month of) Ramadan, and then (fast) six (days) in the month of Syawwal after that, then it is as if he has performed fast the whole time (one year, -ed).” [1]

Lessons From the Battle of Badr

Lessons From the Battle of Badr

One of the historical battles during the lifetime of Allah’s messenger was the battle of Badr. It happened on the month of Ramadan, two years after Allah’s messenger’s emigration to Medina. The first battle that was completely won by the muslims was the first blow to the disbeliever of Quraish. They didn’t expect the muslims, who were oppressed in Mecca, now turned the tide and showed off their power.

The battle of Badr had long finished. We could only read about it in the books about history of Islam. We do not engage in it physically, nor that we trudged together along with the Messenger’s troops at that time, since we are separated by centuries. However, there are many lessons and morals that we could draw from the history of the Messenger’s and his companions’ struggle. And that is why histories are told to the next generation, so that they could take worthy lessons from the history of their own religion. Hence, history is not just a tale to be conveyed as bed time story.

Ruling regarding Women Using Medicine to Stop their Period on Ramadan

Ruling regarding Women Using Medicine to Stop their Period on Ramadan

Question:

What is the ruling regarding a woman who used medicine to stop her period on Ramadan?

Ruling regarding Women Using Medicine to Stop their Period on Ramadan

Answer:

It is alright for woman to use some medicine that might stop her period temporarily, if it is not harmful for her, and by the permission of her husband. Of what I (Sheikh Ibn Uthaymeen) know, such medicine is harmful for women because the menstrual blood is a kind of blood that expelled naturally. If it is prevented from gushing out in time, then it might be harmful for women’s body. Next, it is important to notice that such medicine causes their period to be irregular, thus creating confusion and doubt (about whether they are already clean or not, -ed) at the time of praying or having sexual intercourse with their husband.

Therefore, I do not say that it is unlawful, but I’m not suggesting it. The women should accept their fate that Allah has ordained for them. It is said that the Prophet -peace and prayer of Allah be upon him- once met ‘Aisha -may Allah be pleased with her- who was crying at the time of the farewell hajj. At that time, ‘Aisha -may Allah be pleased with her-  had already worn the ihram clothes. The Messenger of Allah -peace and prayer of Allah be upon him- asked her,

“What’s wrong with you, ‘Aisha? Are you menstruating?”

‘Aisha -may Allah be pleased with her answered, ” Yes, O Messenger of Allah.”

The Messenger of Allah -peace and prayer of Allah be upon him- advised her, “That is something that Allah has ordained for the women.”

Thus, the women should be patient and seek for Allah’s rewards when they must leave the prayer and the fast due to their period. Verily, the door of dhikr (remembrance) is open widely for them, they might recite the dhikr, tasbeeh, give charity, be kind to others with their saying and deeds, and these are the greatest deeds.

(Fatwa issued by Sheikh Muhammad Ibn Shalih al Uthaymeen, 1/304. Also refer to the fatwa from the Lajnah Daimah, 5/400).

Does Anger Invalidate Fasting?

Does Anger Invalidate Fasting?

Question:

On Ramadan, someone was angry because of a thing. During his emotional state, he scorned and snapped. Was such deed invalidate his fasting?

Does Anger Invalidate Fasting

Answer:

Being angry doesn’t invalidate his fasting, but reduces it’s reward. Therefore, it is a must for a muslim to restrain himself and his words from mocking other, gossiping, slandering, and other prohibited deeds on Ramadan and on other months as well.

And this self-restraining supposed to be stricter on the month of Ramadan, to preserve the perfection of his fasting, and to avoid all hurtful acts to others, that cause defamation, hostility, and disunity, based on the saying of the Messenger of Allah -peace and prayer of Allah be upon him- ,

وَإِذَا كَانَ يَوْمُ صَوْمِ أَحَدِكُمْ فَلاَ يَرْفُثْ وَلاَ يَصْخَبْ فَإِنْ سَابَّهُ أَحَدٌ أَوْ قَاتَلَهُ فَلْيَقُلْ إِنَّي امْرُؤٌ صَائِمٌ

“If one of you is observing Saum (fast), he should avoid saying words that contain sexual matters, and quarreling, and if somebody should fight or quarrel with him, he should say, ‘I am observing Saum (fast).'”(Muttafaqun ‘alaih)

And the guidance is with Allah, peace and prayer of Allah be upon our Prophet, Muhammad, his family, and his companions.

(Fatwas of the Lajnah Ad Daimah Lil Buhutsil ‘Ilmiyah Wal Ifta’, X/333).
