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).

Admonition of Ramadan: Don’t Waste your Fasting!

Admonition of Ramadan: Don’t Waste your Fasting!

Dont Waste your Fasting

All praises be to Allah, peace and prayer of Allah be upon Prophet Muhammad, his family, and his companions.

Dear Brother! Don’t you remember the burning heat you felt when you stepped over a cigarette stump? You burned your foot, didn’t you? Or, you might remember any heat of the worldly fire that burned some parts of your body? How did you feel that time? Didn’t you feel hurt, hot, and sad?

Don’t you know that the heat you’ve felt is too little and too light to be compared with the Hellfire?

نَارُكُمْ هَذِهِ الَّتِى يُوقِدُ ابْنُ آدَمَ جُزْءٌ مِنْ سَبْعِينَ جُزْءًا مِنْ حَرِّ جَهَنَّمَ. قَالُوا: وَاللَّهِ إِنْ كَانَتْ لَكَافِيَةً يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ. قَالَ: فَإِنَّهَا فُضِّلَتْ عَلَيْهَا بِتِسْعَةٍ وَسِتِّينَ جُزْءًا كُلُّهَا مِثْلُ حَرِّهَا . متفق عليه

” This fire of yours that men used to burn (thing, -ed) is just one seventieth of the heat of the Hellfire.’ The companions spontaneously said, “O Messenger of Allah, by Allah, this fire is enough to hurt the wicked ones (why it must be multiplied)?”. He replied, “(No), indeed, the heat of the Hellfire is sixty nine times hotter than the fire of this world.” (Muttafaqun ‘alaih)

Remember how hot was the fire that burned your skin. Then try to think, the heat that you’ve felt to be multiplied into seventy times, how would it feel?

What do you think your skin and your body would be, if it stung by so hot a fire? What it would feel to be stung by a seventy times hotter fire?

Question and Answer: Measure of Zakat fitr

Measure of Zakat fitr

Question:

“What is the measure of zakat fitr in Ramadan?”

Answer:

It seems like what the questioner meant was zakat fitr in the month of Ramadan. What must be spent is one sha’ (measurement unit) of the citizen’s staple food, whether in the form of rice, wheat, dates, or other food; it applies for men and women, free man and slave, children and adult, of the muslims as mentioned in an authentic hadith from the Prophet -peace and prayer of Allah be upon him- regarding that matter. Therefore, it is compulsory for people  to spend their zakat before they perform the Eid prayer. It is also alright for them to spend it one or two days before Eid. As for the measure, it is approximately equal to 3 kilograms.
