He Who Observes Fasts in the month of Ramadan and Six Days in the Month of Shawwal



Hazrat Abu Ayyub (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, "He who observes As-Saum (the fasts) in the month of Ramadan, and also observes As-Saum for six days in the month of Shawwal, it is as if he has observed As-Saum for the whole year."


[Muslim Book 06, Chapter 36, Hadith # 2614]

Shab-e-Qadr Ki Dua - Laylat Ul Qadr Ki Dua



"Allahumma innaka 'afuwwun tuhibbul 'afwa fa'fu 'annee"


اللھم انک عفوآ تحب العفوا فاعف عنی


اے اللہ! تو بہت معاف کرنے والا ہے، معاف کرنا تجھے پسند ہے، پس تو مجھے معاف فرما دے

What is Fitrah (Fitrana) - How to Pay Fitrana in Islam


Fitrah, fitrana or zakat -ul -fitar are the terms used to define that money which is obligatory to be given to the needy before eid-ul fitar. This money is paid to the poor people so that they can fulfill their needs on the eid day. since eid day is to be celebrated by all muslims since it is a reward or prize from ALLAH swt against the 29/30 fasts muslims observe during Ramadan.

Since old ages, people have marked some special days in a year to rejoice and celebrate and to be happy. In islam, the two official days to rejoice are the two eids. But these special occasions are for every muslim not only for those who can celebrate and feel happy. This is why is has been made obligatory for the muslims who are sahb-e nisab to pay fitrana to the poor before eid prayer.

The best is to pay them some days before eid so that they can also spend the money or keep it to be spent on the day of eid.

Fitranah is different from zakat in a manner of its measuring and its distribution. It is calculated as 2.50 wheat per head in the family. Suppose if there are 7 people in your home, the 2.5 kg wheat per head will become 2.5*7= 17.5 kg. Thus the family will pay the money equivalent to the 17.5 kg raw wheat to the poor.
This is not a huge amount which cannot be paid so it should be paid some days before eid. Many people still pay the standard money against 2.5 kg, but the better way is to pay 2.5 kg equivalent current amount of wheat.

If wheat prices go up, it will make the fitrana money a little more which might not harm the sahib-e nisab much but can do good to the poor family. In this way, the poor will get more and will be able to spend his eid day in a better way.

Islam has made it obligatory for the muslims to remember their other muslim brothers and sisters in the time of happiness and in the times of sorrow. If it was not made obligatory, people would have never thought about poor and the world would be a worst place for those who do not have much to earn.

ALLAH is the sustainer of all, and HE has made ways for his people to spend money and to get money. Do not forget to pay fitrah and do not be hesitant to pay money in the way of ALLAH because when you spend for ALLAH , HE remembers it.

Zaid bin Khalid Aljuhni States that, Beloved Prophet (S.A.W.W) Said: who prepare for opening fast (iftaar) for anyone so he will get reward equal to the person who is on fast, and reward of that person (who is fasting) will not decrease.

When You Are in the State of Fasting

Abu Huraira (Razi Allah Ta'ala Anhu) reported: When any one of you gets up in the morning in the state of fasting, he should neither use obscene language nor do any act of ignorance. And if anyone slanders him or quarrels with him, he should say:" I am fasting, I am fasting."

[Muslim :: Book 6 : Hadith 2563]


ابوہریرہ (رضی الله عنہ) سے روایت ہے جب تم میں سے کوئی روزے کی حالت میں صبح اٹھتا ہے،اسے چاہیے کے وہ نہ ہی فحش زبان استعمال کرے اور نہ جہالت کی کوئی حرکت کرے. اور اگر کوئی اس کے نقصان پہنچائے یا اس کے ساتھ جھگڑے، تو وہ کہے: "میں روزے سے ہوں، ميں روزے سے ہوں."

[ مسلم، کتاب:6 ، حدیث:2563 ]

Spirit of Eid - True Meaning of Eid From Islamic Point Of View


Every Muslim loves the day of Eid. It is a day of happiness and joy. Whether it is the atmosphere of the Eid-gah, the Eid treats or the family coming together, Eid means something special to young and old. For one moment let us stop and what is the true meaning of Eid from an Islamic point of view.

1) Sadaqat ul Fitr:
Muslims are commanded to spend on the less fortunate prior to the Eid Salaah as a token of gratitude to Allah for all that He provides. Sadaqat ul Fitr is a special gift to the poor allowing them to enjoy Eid as well. It seeks to build a community by breaking the barriers between rich and poor.

2) Eid Salaah:
Allah has prescribed a special prayer on the day of Eid which is characterized by a number of unique features. There is no Azaan and Iqama. There are a number of extra takbeer which are recited. A Khutba follows the Salaah.

This uniqueness serves to remind Muslims that Eid is a unique day. The fact that the day begins with a prayer teaches the Muslims an important lesson:

a) Even the days of celebration in Islam are linked to worship.

b) Unlike other nations and people Islam does not celebrate with music, dancing, liquor and entertainment. The spirit of Islamic celebration is filled with love, serenity and spirituality.

c) Eid Salaah is a reminder to Muslims that although the compulsory fasting has ended but the relationship with Allah can never end. This is a link and bond which must be inseparable.

3) Laylat ul Jaaizah: T
he righteous Muslim stands in prayer on the night proceeding the day of Eid in emulation of Rasulullah (SAW) who used to stay awake the entire night. On this night Allah bestows his rewards on those who spent the month of Ramadhaan abiding to Islamic teachings.

“One who stands in worship in the nights preceding the two Eids expecting reward his heart will not die when other hearts will die.” (Ibn Majah)
Even though Eid is a day of joy a true Muslim will be sad at the thought of the departure of a beloved guest whose arrival was anticipated for eleven months.

4) A few thoughts on the Day of Eid:
a)When you and your children wear new clothes and shoes on Eid morning, think of the thousands of Muslim children who are wearing filthy and torn rags.

b) When you are enjoying the tasty treats and delicacies of Eid, spare a thought for the millions of Muslims who will have bread crumbs.

c) While you are free and happy with your children and family, spare a thought for the thousands of Muslims languishing under unspeakable conditions in prisons or battlefronts all over the world.

d) Spare a few quiet moments on this Eid Day to make Dua for our innocent brothers and sisters who are being tortured all over the world for no crime other than the fact that they are bearers of the Kalima “Laa Ilaaha illallaah Muhammadur Rasulullah”.

e) When we have such important thoughts and duas to make can we really justify going to places like the Zoo Lake and the Waterfront on Eid. Besides the un-Islamic dressing, fashion parading, intermingling of the sexes, music and pride which comes with this there is a serious misrepresentation of the auspicious day of Eid to the non-Muslims. May Allah grant us the ability of using the day profitably.


5) Sunnah’s of Eid:
Make this a checklist for Eid Morning:

a) Awake very early in the morning
b) Use a miswaak
c) Have a bath
d) Dress in one’s best available clothes ensuring that it conforms with Shariah
e) Use itr
f) Eat a sweet dish (preferably dates before the Eid Salaah)
g) Go early to the Eid Salaah
h) Discharge Sadaqat ul Fitr before going to the Eid Salaah
i) Offer the Eid Salaah at the Eid-gah
j) To return from the Eid Salaah taking a route that is different from the one that was taken when going.
k) To go to the Eid Salaah on foot. However, there is no harm in using any means of conveyance if the Eid-gah is a distance away.
l) To recite the takbeer in a low voice while proceeding for the Eid Salaah::
“Allaahu Akbar Allaahu Akbar. Laa ilaaha illallahu Wallaahu Akbar Allaahu Akbar Walilaahil Hamd”

May Allah grant us all the true spirit of Eid. Aameen!

We Sent The Qur'an Down During The Night Of Decree (Shab-e-Qadr)


بِّسْمِ اللَّـهِ الرَّحْمَـٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ

إِنَّا أَنزَلْنَاهُ فِي لَيْلَةِ الْقَدْرِ ﴿١﴾ وَمَا أَدْرَاكَ مَا لَيْلَةُ الْقَدْرِ ﴿٢﴾ لَيْلَةُ الْقَدْرِ خَيْرٌ مِّنْ أَلْفِ شَهْرٍ ﴿٣﴾ تَنَزَّلُ الْمَلَائِكَةُ وَالرُّوحُ فِيهَا بِإِذْنِ رَبِّهِم مِّن كُلِّ أَمْرٍ ﴿٤﴾ سَلَامٌ هِيَ حَتَّىٰ مَطْلَعِ الْفَجْرِ ﴿٥﴾


Indeed, We sent the Qur'an down during the Night of Decree.
And what can make you know what is the Night of Decree?
The Night of Decree is better than a thousand months.
The angels and the Spirit descend therein by permission of their Lord for every matter.
Peace it is until the emergence of dawn.


ہم نے اس( قرآن) کو شب قدر میں نازل (کرنا شروع) کیا
اور تمہیں کیا معلوم کہ شب قدر کیا ہے؟
شب قدر ہزار مہینے سے بہتر ہے
اس میں روح (الامین) اور فرشتے ہر کام کے (انتظام کے) لیے اپنے پروردگار کے حکم سے اترتے ہیں
یہ( رات) طلوع صبح تک (امان اور) سلامتی ہے

A person who breaks the fast in Ramadan


A person who breaks the fast in Ramadan should free a slave or observe fasts for two (consecutive) months or feed sixty poor persons.

[Sahih Muslim: Book 006, Number 2461]

If somebody eats or drinks forgetfully during fast


If somebody eats or drinks forgetfully then he should complete his fast, for what he has eaten or drunk, has been given to him by Allah.

[Sahih Bukhari: Volume 3, Book 31, Number 154]

Can you hug and kiss your wife while fasting ?


It has been reported through various ahadith that Prophet Muhammad [PBUH] did hug and kiss his wife while fasting.

‘Aisha رضی اللہ عنھا reported: Allah’s Messenger ﷺ used to kiss (his wives) while fasting and embraced (them) while fasting; but he had the greatest mastery over his desire among you. - [Muslim Book 6, #2439]

It is important to note that he had much control over his sexual desires. A man who fears that hugging or kissing his wife would cause him to lose control and cross the boundaries set by Allah (swt) for fasting, should not hug or kiss his wife at all. Although if a person has no fear of being aroused in a sexual way when he hugs or kisses his wife then it is permissible for him to do such.

Narated By ‘Aisha رضی اللہ عنھا: The Prophet [PBUH] used to kiss and embrace (his wives) while he was fasting, and he had more power to control his desires than any of you. Said Jabir, “The person who gets discharge after casting a look (on his wife) should complete his fast.” – [Bukhari Vol.3, Book 31, #149]

However, you cannot kiss your wife where the saliva exchanges. That will invalidate the fast.

Some quote the following hadith as evidence to say exchange of saliva does not invalidate the fast:

عن عائشة رضی اللہ عنھا ان النبی ﷺ کان یقبلھا و ھو صائم و یمص لسانھا
Narrated 'Ayesha رضی اللہ عنھا, The Prophet [PBUH] used to kiss her when he was fasting and he would suck her tongue - [Abu Dawood Book 13, #2380]

There is strict kalam on this hadith. The narrator Muhammad bin Deenar has been severely criticized and has been classified by some, including Ibn Ma'een and Dar Qutni as 'matrookul hadith' and 'da'eef'. Imam Nasai has stated that the last statement is only found in the hadith of Muhammad bin Deenar. Another narrator in the hadith, Sa'ad bin Aws al-'Abdi is also criticized and has transmitted other wrong narrations as well. Ibn Ma'een has classified him as 'da'eef'. (al-Fadhlul Ma'bud Sharh Sunan Abi Dawood vol.3, Kitab as-Saum pg. 553)

To base any ruling on a hadith with such a weak health is incorrect. Even if for argument's sake one says that this hadith is sound, even so, to conclude that it is permissible to swallow the saliva of the wife which is transmitted by kissing is incorrect. This is due to the fact that the hadith remains silent on whether this saliva was spat from the mouth or swallowed. Thus, even by accepting this hadith to be sound, the ruling of swallowing saliva cannot be established.

A third answer is given, as stated in al-Durr al-Mandud Sahrh Sunan Abi Dawood, vol.4 pg 216, the "و" after 'wa huwa saa'imun' is not "'aatifah" but is "Ist'nafiyah" in which case it will be a completely new statement and will not be linked to "and he was fasting".

Swallowing someone else's saliva invalidates the fast and thus such a kiss would not be permissible.
