We have disagreement with my wife who wanted to go out without my permission and in her attempt to resist my order, l told her , if she dare cross the main road leading to the town without my permission, is at the expense of her marriage and she went, but before reaching the main road, she asked to come back by her Uncle who the information and she obey. but after some hours, when I and the uncle went out, she moved out and cross the road to where she want before coming back later in the day. Then what is the position of the instruction given and marriage status in Islam?



Divorce - About Islam

If you intend to just threaten her without internally intending to divorce her, she is not divorced. You have to just expiate like breaking an oath.

 

If you really intend to divorce her if she passes, i.e. you liked to divorce her but you delayed it until she passes this road, then she is divorced if she does so.

Salam alaikum waramotullah, please I want to know which has more reward. Observing solat at it right time individually, or waiting for congressional prayer after the time might have passed. Am asking this, because I have Muslim brothers at my place of work who always have a fixed time for their prayers even if the weather changes. Ma'as-salam.



Solat on time or in jammah, which is better? - About Islam

Wa `alaykum as-Salamu wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.

 

Waiting for the congregational prayer is better because the Prophet commanded his companions to delay certain prayers for joining congregation. He also asked the man to make prayer again when he visited the mosque and found them still prayer.

 

Moreover, the Prophet used to delay Ishah until his companions gather. Jabir bin Abdullah (may Allah be pleased with him and his father) said, “The Prophet used to pray Zhuhr at midday,  Asr when the sun was still bright, and Maghrib as soon as the sun sets. But, he would vary the time of Isha. When he found the people gathered, he would pray earlier; and, when he found them taking their time, he would delay it. The Prophet used to pray Fajr  when it was still dark.”

Salat - About Islam

Most probably this is a madhy  (urethral discharge). Ali (may Allah be pleased with him) Narrated: I used to get the emotional urethral discharge frequently so I requested Al-Miqdad to ask the Prophet about it. Al-Miqdad asked him and he replied, “One has to perform ablution (after it).” (Al-Bukhari)

 

You should only wash the area sullied with madhy and make wudu’. In case this turn to be uncontrollable and frequent to the extent that you think it is a disease, you may make ablution immediately before the time of prayer and cover your private part with some cotton and pray by taking all your time.

 

In this case, you are supposed to just pray the obligatory prayer and additional supererogatory prayers attached to it. When the time for next prayer comes, you repeat the same process again.

Salaam Wrb, shaykh. Do blasphemy laws exist in Islam? because I have come across a hadith by Abu Bakr when someone asked if he could kill the person that insulted him, then Abu Bakr replied it is only for the Prophet(S), I know that this hadith is in abu dawud so there is a chance that it is unauthentic(because he accepted some of Bukhari's rejected hadith) as Aisha on the contrary says that He(S) never responded evil with evil and he overlooked it and pardoned it(although it is reported in abu dawud but it is sahih). So the question is; Is the Abu Bakr hadith authentic?



Was the Prophet lusting for power? - About Islam

Wa `alaykum as-Salamu wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.

 

Insulting the Prophet at his time is a great treason for  Islam and Muslim. It includes doubting his mission as a Prophet sent by God to guide humanity. The Prophet commanded the killing of certain leaders among non-Muslims who either called people to kill the Prophet or even attempted to kill him personally.

 

Ali b. Abi Talib said, “A Jewess used to abuse the Prophet and disparage him. A man strangled her till she died. The Messenger of Allah declared that no recompense was payable for her blood.” (Abu Dāwūd)

 

Moreover, Ibn Abbas reported that a blind man had a pregnant slave, who used to abuse the Messenger of Allah and defame him. The blind man forbade her but she did not stop. One night she began to slander the Prophet so he took an axe, placed it on her belly, pressed it and killed her. The Messenger of Allah was told about it, and thereupon he said, “Oh people! Be witnesses that no Diyah is to be paid for her blood.” (Abu Dawud)

Regarding Jannah - About Islam

Verily the Messenger of Allah said:

 

The last to enter Paradise would be a man who would walk once and stumble once and be burnt by the Fire once. Then when he gets beyond it, he will turn to it and say: Blessed is He Who has saved me from thee. Allah has given me something He has not given to any one of those in earlier or later times. Then a tree would be raised up for him and he will say: O my Lord I bring me near this tree so that I may take shelter in its shade and drink of its water. Allah, the Exalted and Great, would say: O son of Adam, if I grant you this, you will ask Me for something else. He would say: No. my Lord. And he would promise Him that he would not ask for anything else. His Lord would excuse him because He sees what he cannot help desiring; so He would bring him near it, and he would take shelter in its shade and drink of its water. Afterwards a tree more beautiful than the first would be raised up before him and he would say: O my Lord! bring me near this tree in order that I may drink of its water and take shelter in its shade and I shall not ask Thee for anything else. He (Allah) would say: O son of Adam, if I bring you near it you may ask me for something else. He would promise Him that he would not ask for anything else. His Lord will excuse him because He would see something he cannot help desiring. So He would bring him near it and he would enjoy its shade and drink its water. Then a tree would be raised up for him at the gate of the Paradise, more beautiful than the first two. He would say: O my Lord! bring me near this (tree) so that I may enjoy its shade and drink from its water. I shall not ask Thee for anything else. He (Allah) would say: O son of Adam! did you not promise Me that you would not ask Me anything else? He would say: Yes, my Lord, but I shall not ask Thee for anything else. His Lord would excuse him for He sees something the temptation of which he could not resist. He (Allah) would bring him near to it, and when He would bring him near it he would hear the voices of the inhabitants of the Paradise. He would say: O my Lord! admit me to it. He (Allah) would say: O son of Adam, what will bring an end to your requests to Me? Will it please you if I give you the whole world and a like one along with it? He will say: O my Lord! art Thou mocking at me, though Thou art the Lord of the worlds? Ibn Mas’ud laughed and asked (the hearers): Why don’t you ask me what I am laughing at. They (then) said: Why do you laugh? He said: It is in this way that the Messenger of Allah laughed. They (the companions of the Holy Prophet) asked: Why do you laugh. Messenger of Allah? He said: On account of the laugh of the Lord of the universe, when he ldesirer of Paradise) sai Thou mocking at me though Thou art the Lord of the worlds? He would say: I am not mocking at you, but I have power to do whatever I will. (Muslim)

Salaam Wrb, dear respected scholar, I have read a hadith that the Prophet allowed for the killing of a jewish woman who insulted him. I think the hadith is mursal or jayyid, but there is another story like this by Ibn Sa'b in his tabaqaat al kubra? is this sahih and are mursal and jayyid to be accepted?
