ALLAH (Jalla Shanahu) commands us to go for Hajj if we have the means, and when we are ready to go for Hajj, we say Labbayk (meaning: Here I am, ready to obey Your Command, O Allah). Allah (Jalla Shanahu) also commands us in the Holy Qur’an to invoke blessings and salutations on the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu ta ala alayhi wa sallam) and what a pleasant surprise it is to find a salaat in Part 1 of Dalaail u’l Khayraat with the relevant verse (33:56) and the response of Labbayk as follows:

Innallaaha wa malaaikatahu yusalluuna ‘alan-nabi O Yaa ayyuhallaziina aamanu sallu ‘alaihi wa sallimu tasliima O

Verily, Allah and his angles bless the Prophet! O you, who believe, ask (Allah) to bless him and grant him abundant peace!

Labbaika Allahumma rabbi wasaadayka salawaatullahil-barrirrahiimi wal-malaaikatil-mukarrabiina wannabiyyena was-siddiqiina wash-shuhadaa‘i was-saalihiina wama sabbaha laka min shay-in-yaa rabbal ‘alamiina ‘alaa sayyidina Muhammad-in Abdillaahi khaatamin-nabiyyiina wasayyidina mursaliina Wa ima mil-muttaqiina warasuuli rabbil-‘alamiina shahidil-bashiirid-daa’ii ilaika bi-iznikas-sirajil-muniri wa ‘alaihis-salam. O

Allahummaj‘al salawatika wabarakatika warahmataka ‘alaa saiyidil-mursaliina wa imamil-muttaqiina wa khatamin-nabiyyina sayyidinaa Muhammad-in ‘abdika warasulika imamil-khairi waqaa‘idil-khairi warasulir-rahmah O

Translation :

I am here, Ya Allah, at Your service and at Your Command, my Lord! The blessing of Allah (subhaanahu wa ta’ala), the good, the Merciful, and of his closest angles, and of the Prophets and of the sincere ones, and of the martyrs and of the good ones and of whatever else exists which glorifies You (Ya Allah), O Lord of the worlds, are for our master Muhammad (Sollallahu ‘Alaihi Wasallam), son of Abdullah (Radhi allah ta’ala anhu), the seal of the Prophets and the master of Messenger The Leader of the Pious and the Messenger of the Lord of the world, the witness the Bringer of Good Tidings, the caller to You (Ya Alalh) by Your leave, the Lamp, the Illumined one, on him may there be peace!

Ya Allah grant Your blessings and Favours and Your Mercy to the master of the Messengers and the Leader of the pious and Seal of the Prophets, our master Muhammad (Sollallahu ‘Alaihi Wasallam), Your slave and Your Messenger, the Pioneer of Goodness and Guide to the Goodness, the Messenger of Mercy!

What is the duration of the time of Maghrib?

Question: What is the ruling of the Ulama-e-Deen in the following case: Zaid says that the time of Maghrib is very short and it is for this reason that short Surahs are recited in Maghrib and after the two sunnats and nafil of Maghrib, the time of Maghrib either expires or only five or six minutes remain. Amar says that it is mustahab (desirable) to read short Surahs and to read Maghrib in its earliest time. He further says that the time of Maghrib is until the redness remains in the sky. Actually he says that there is approximately half an hour that one has (for Maghrib). I would thus like to humbly query concerning the correct ruling regarding how long Maghrib lasts for and when it expires? I would also like clarification regarding the statements of Zaid and Amar. I would also like to query the ruling if a person reads Maghrib at the time when there is the whiteness in the sky which appears after the redness. Is it permissible to read at this time or not? Until what time is one allowed reading Maghrib without any uncertainty?

The Answer: The statement of Zaid is completely incorrect. He has just made this up from his own thinking. It is for this reason that he is himself in doubt, because he first said that there is no time left and then he says that there are five to six minutes left (for Maghrib to end) and to use one’s own idea in such religious issues, is totally haraam. In reality, the time of Maghrib remains until the whiteness in the sky has set. This whiteness refers to the whiteness on the western side of the sky which stretches breadth wise towards the northerly and southerly direction, like the whiteness in the morning. The whiteness after this, which does not stretch breadth wise northerly or southerly, but moves vertically towards the sky, like the whiteness of Subh Kaazib is not regarded as the correct whiteness. After the setting of the sun, until the whiteness in the sky that spreads breadth wise sets. In our areas, this remains for at least one hour eighteen minutes. The maximum time that it remains for is one hour thirty five minutes. The time varies between one hour eighteen and one hour thirty five minutes. On some days, the whiteness remains for one hour eighteen minutes whilst on other days it remains for one hour nineteen minutes or one hour twenty minutes, until the whiteness sets at one hour thirty five minutes.
ماتن الشفق ھو الحمرة عندھما و به قالت الثلثة و العیه رجع الامام فرمایا: و المحقق فی الفتح باه لا یساعده روایة و لا درایة الخ و قال تلمیذه العلامة قاسم فی تصحیح القدوری ان رجوعه لم یثبت لما نقله الکافة من لدن الائمة الثلثة الی الیوم من حکایة القولین و دعوی عمل عامة الصحابةبخلافه بخلاف المنقول قال فی الاخیتار الشفق البیاض و ھو مذهب الصدیق
و المستحب التعجیل فی المغرب مطقا و تاخیر قدر رکعتین یکرة تغزیھا

It is however better to read Maghrib Namaaz as soon as possible and it is Makrooh-e-Tanzeehi, in others words, contrary to what is better, to delay without reason, the Namaaz of Maghrib, for the amount of time that is usually required to read two Rakaats Namaaz (just as it has been mentioned in Durr Mukhtar). To delay maghrib so much that lots of stars begin to appear in the sky, is Makrooh-e-Tahreemi, just as been mentioned in Durr Mukhtar.  والله تعالى اعلم  Ahkaam E Shariat part 2 – by Alahazrat.

Consume food only if it is ” Halal “

The translation of an excert borrowed from the fourth chapter of the second part of Kimyâ-i-se’âdet: Rasûlullah ‘sall-Allâhu ta’âlâ ‘alaihi wa sallam’ stated: “It is farz for, (i.e. incumbent upon,) every Muslim to earn (a living) by way of halâl.” Earning by way of halâl, in its turn, requires learning what is halâl. Halâls and harâms are known clearly. What is difficult to know is the doubtful area between the two. A person who fails to avoid the doubtful will fall into harâms. This subject, therefore, should cover an extensive area of knowledge to impart. We have provided detailed information in our book entitiled Ihyâ-ul-‘ulûm. In this chapter we will briefly dwell on some salient points of sweeping generally, arranging them in four articles. [One of those four articles is given here.]

Merits of earning by way of halâl, and thawâb for doing so:

The fifty-second [52] âyat-i-karîma of Mu’minûn Sura purports: “O My Prophets ‘salawâtullahi ‘alaihim ajma’în’. Eat what is pure and halâl and worship Me in due manner!” For this reason, Rasûlullah ‘sall-Allâhu ‘alaihi wa sallam’ stated: “It is farz for every Muslim to earn by way of halâl.” At another occasion the Most Blessed Prophet stated: “If a person eats (only) whatsoever is halâl without mixing any harâm with it for forty days running, Allâhu ta’âlâ will fill his heart with nûr (spritual lights). He will make Hikmat flow like rivers into his heart. He will remove worldly love from his heart.” [It is not sinful to work in order to earn what is worldly. What is sinful is love what is worldly and attach one’s heart to the world.] Sa’d bin Abî Waqqâs ‘radiy-Allâhu ‘anh’, (a Sahâbî, the seventh earliest Muslim, and one of those most fortunate ten Muslims who are called the ‘Ashara-i-mubash-shara because they were given the glad tidings that they would enter Paradise after death,) one day entreated: Yâ Rasûlullah (O Messenger of Allah)! Please invoke a blessing on me so that Allâhu ta’âlâ will accept all my prayers!” The following hadîth-i-sherîf contains the reply of the Best of Mankind: Read the rest of this entry »
