Cosmetic Surgery for the purpose of beautification is prohibited — June 21, 2012

Cosmetic Surgery for the purpose of beautification is prohibited

Cosmetic surgery may be divided into two categories: 

1 – Essential surgery: 

These are operations that are done to remove faults, such as those that result from sickness, traffic accidents, burns, etc. or to remove congenital defects with which a person was born, such as to remove an extra digit or separate fused digits, etc. 

This kind of operation is permissible. There is evidence in the Sunnah to indicate that they are permissible and that the one who does them does not intend to change the creation of Allaah. 

(i)                It was narrated from ‘Arfajah ibn As’ad that he lost his nose in the battle of al-Kulaab during the Jaahiliyyah, so he wore a nose made of silver but it became putrid, so the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) told him to wear a nose made of gold. Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, 1770; Abu Dawood, 4232; al-Nasaa’i, 5161. This hadeeth was classed as hasan by Shaykh al-Albaani in Irwa’ al-Ghaleel, 824.

(ii)              It was narrated that ‘Abd-Allaah ibn Mas’ood said: I heard the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) cursing those women who pluck their eyebrows and file their teeth for the purpose of beautification and change the creation of Allaah. Narrated by al-Bukhaari and Muslim. 

Al-Nawawi (may Allaah have mercy on him) said: 

With regard to the phrase “those who file their teeth”, this refers to those who did that for the purpose of beautification and looking younger. This indicates that what is haraam is that which is done for the purpose of beautification; but if it is needed for medical treatment or to correct a fault in the teeth and so on, there is nothing wrong with it. And Allaah knows best. 

2 – The second type of cosmetic surgery is that which is done for the purpose of beautification. 

These are operations that are done to improve the appearance in the eye of the beholder, such as making the nose look more beautiful by making it smaller, or making the breasts look more beautiful by making them smaller or larger, or facelifts, and so on. 

This kind of surgery is not for any necessary reason, rather the purpose is to change the creation of Allaah and tinker with it according to people’s whims and desires. So this is haraam and it is not permissible to do it, because it is changing the creation of Allaah. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning): 

“They (all those who worship others than Allaah) invoke nothing but female deities besides Him (Allaah), and they invoke nothing but Shaytaan (Satan), a persistent rebel!

118. Allaah cursed him. And he [Shaytaan (Satan)] said: ‘I will take an appointed portion of your slaves.

119. ‘Verily, I will mislead them, and surely, I will arouse in them false desires; and certainly, I will order them to slit the ears of cattle, and indeed I will order them to change the nature created by Allaah’”

[al-Nisa’ 4:117-119] 

The Shaytaan is the one who tells people to change the creation of Allaah.

Types of goodness and good etiquette for community life

When evening descends, bring your children indoors for the devils scatter out at this hour. Then after the passing of an hour (i.e. the first hour) of the night, (you may) let them (the children) go. Close your doors while mentioning the Name of Allah, for the devil may not open a closed door. Fasten your waterskins mentioning the Name of Allah. Cover your eating vessels mentioning the Name of Alah even if you just put something over it, and estinguish your lamps.

END OF THE UNIVERSE

How do you worship besides Allah something which has no power either to harm or to benefit you? …

Above is an imaginary photo for the sun when Allah Almighty wound it round and when it lost its light.Recent scientists confirm that one day all of the previous will happen so that life on earth will be terminated. Allah Almighty says about what will happen in day of resurrection: (When the sun Kuwwirat (wound round and lost its light and is overthrown).){Sûrat At-Takwîr -Wound Round and Lost its Light –verse 1}

The question is, who told prophet Mohamed peace be upon him this scientific fact at the time when no one even thought about future of the sun?

Allah Almighty is the doer who says about Himself: (Say (O Muhammad to mankind): “How do you worship besides Allah something which has no power either to harm or to benefit you? But it is Allah Who is the All-Hearer, All-Knower.”){Sûrat Al-Mâ’idah-The Table spread with Food -verse76}.

Witr Salah — March 23, 2012

Witr Salah

Witr PrayerWitr prayer is one of the greatest acts of worship that draw one closer to Allâh. Some of the scholars – the Hanafis – even thought that it is one of the obligatory prayers, but the correct view is that it is one of the confirmed Sunnahs (Sunnah mu’akkadah) which the Muslim should observe regularly and not neglect.

Imam Ahmad (رحمه الله) said: Whoever neglects Witr is a bad man whose testimony should not be accepted. This indicates that Witr prayer is something that is confirmed.

Timing of Witr prayer

It starts when a person has prayed ‘Isha’, (even if it is joined to Maghrib at the time of Maghrib), and lasts until dawn begins, because the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said: “Allâh has prescribed for you a prayer (by which He may increase your reward), which is Witr; Allâh has enjoined it for you during the time between ‘Isha’ prayer .until dawn begins.”

(Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, 425; classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Tirmidhi)

Is it better to offer Witr prayer at the beginning of its time or to delay it?

The Sunnah indicates that if a person thinks he will be able to get up at the end of the night, it is better to delay it, because prayer at the end of the night is better and is witnessed (by the angels). But whoever fears that he will not get up at the end of the night should pray Witr before he goes to sleep, because of the hadeeth of Jaabir (رضي الله عنه) who said: The Messenger of Allâh (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said:

“Whoever fears that he will not get up at the end of the night, let him pray Witr at the beginning of the night, but whoever thinks that he will be able to get up at the end of the night, let him pray Witr at the end of the night, for prayer at the end of the night is witnessed (by the angels) and that is better.” (Muslim, 755)

The number of rak’ahs of Witr prayer

The MINIMUM number of rak’ahs for Witr is one rak’ah, because the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said: “Witr is one rak’ah at the end of the night.” (Muslim, 752).

And he (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said: “The night prayers are two (rak’ahs) by two, but if one of you fears that dawn is about to break, let him pray one rak’ah to make what he has prayed odd-numbered.” (al-Bukhari, 911; Muslim, 749).

If a person limits himself to praying one rak’ah, then he has performed the Sunnah. But Witr may also be three or five or seven or nine.

Prophet prayed Witr in different ways

He (صلى الله عليه وسلم) prayed one rak’ah, and three, and five, and seven, and nine. And he (صلى الله عليه وسلم) prayed three rak’ahs in two different ways, either continuously with one tashahhud, or saying salaam after two rak’ahs and praying one rak’ah and saying salaam after it.

He (صلى الله عليه وسلم) did not pray it like Maghrib, with two tashahhuds and one salaam. Rather he (صلى الله عليه وسلم) forbade doing that, and said:

“Do not pray Witr with three rak’ahs like Maghrib.”

(Narrated by al-Haakim, 1/403; al-Bayhaqi, 3/31; al-Daaraqutni, p. 172)

Al-Haafiz ibn Hajar said in Fath al-Baari (4/301): Its isnaad fulfils the conditions of the two Shaykhs (al-Bukhari and Muslim)

If a person prays three rak’ahs of Witr this may be done in two ways, both of which are prescribed in sharee’ah:

1 – To pray them one after another, with one tashahhud, because of the hadeeth of ‘Aa’ishah (رضي الله عنها) who said: The Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) used not to say the tasleem in the (first) two rakahs of Witr. According to another version: “He used to pray Witr with three rak’ahs and he did not sit except in the last of them.”

(Narrated by al-Nasaa’i, 3/234; al-Bayhaqi, 3/31. al-Nawawi said in al-Majmoo’ (4/7): it was narrated by al-Nasaa’i with a hasan isnaad, and by al-Bayhaqi with a saheeh isnaad)

2 – Saying the tasleem after two rak’ahs, then praying one rak’ah on its own, because of the report narrated from Ibn ‘Umar (رضي الله عنه), that he used to separate the two rak’ahs from the single rak’ah with a tasleem, and he said that the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) used to do that.

(Narrated by Ibn Hibbaan (2435); Ibn Hajar said in al-Fath (2/482): its isnaad is qawiy (strong))

If a person prays Witr with five or seven rak’ahs

If a person prays Witr with five or seven rak’ahs, then they should be continuous, and he should only recite one tashahhud in the last of them and say the tasleem, because of the report narrated by ‘Aa’ishah (رضي الله عنها) who said: The Messenger of Allâh (صلى الله عليه وسلم) used to pray thirteen rak’ahs at night, praying five rak’ahs of Witr, in which he would not sit except in the last rak’ah. (Muslim, 737)

And it was narrated that Umm Salamah (رضي الله عنها) said: The Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) used to pray Witr with five or seven (rak’ahs) and he did not separate between them with any salaam or words.

(Narrated by Ahmad, 6/290; al-Nasaa’i, 1714. al-Nawawi said: Its isnaad is jayyid. Al-Fath al-Rabbaani, 2/297. and it was classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Nasaa’i)

If a person prays Witr with Nine rak’ahs

If he prays Witr with nine rak’ahs, then they should be continuous and he should sit to recite the tashahhud in the eighth rak’ah, then stand up and not say the tasleem, then he should recite the tashahhud in the ninth rak’ah and then say the tasleem.

It was narrated in Muslim (746) from ‘Aa’ishah (رضي الله عنها) that the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) used to pray nine rak’ahs in which he did not sit except in the eighth, when he would remember Allâh, praise Him and call upon Him, then he would get up and not say the tasleem, and he would stand up and pray the ninth (rak’ah), then he would sit and remember Allâh and praise Him and call upon Him, then he (صلى الله عليه وسلم) would say a tasleem that we could hear.

If a person prayed Witr with eleven rak’ahs, he would say the tasleem after each two rak’ahs, then pray one rak’ah at the end.

Recitation during three rak’ahs of Witr

Al-Nasaa’i (1729) narrated that Ubayy ibn Ka’b (رضي الله عنه) said:

The Messenger of Allâh (صلى الله عليه وسلم) used to recite in Witr Sabbih isma rabbika al-‘a’la (Surah al-A’la 87), Qul yaa ayyuha’l-kaafiroon (Surah al-Kaafiroon 109) and Qul Huwa Allâhu ahad (Surah al-Ikhlaas 112).

Mentioning regards to Allah

The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: “when a man mention Allah while entering his house and when he eats, the devil says to his mates (there is no food or shelter for this night for you) ” [Muslim, The Book of Drinks, Hadith 2018]
