If imaam has to go for sajda sahu and some late comer joined only the Tash-hud, and when imaam slams on right side, should the late comer also slams with imaam?


Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet said, "The Imam is to be followed. Say the Takbir when he says it; bow if he bows; if he says 'Sami a-l-lahu Liman hamida', say, ' Rabbana wa-laka-l-hamd', prostrate if he prostrates and pray sitting altogether if he prays sitting." sahih al-bukhari(Volume 1, Book 12, Number 701:)

Thus if one joins the congregational prayer in its middle, and the ‘imaam’ leading the prayer makes a mistake, and at the end of the prayer the ‘imaam’ performs the ‘sajdah-sahu’ (prostration of forgetfulness), the believer who joined the prayer (even if in the middle) must follow the ‘imaam’ and do the ‘sajdah-sahu’ with the congregation. The procedure is that when the imam recite the ‘tasleems’ on right side the believer who joined the salah late should not recite ‘tasleems’ as he has to complete his missed rakahs, then if the imam performs ‘sajdah-sahu’ in this case he should follow the imam & perform ‘sajdah-sahu’. After the ‘imaam’ has recited the ‘tasleems’ to signal the end of prayer, one must then stand up and complete the rakahs which one has missed in congregation.

Would you like to guide me regarding the length of keeping beard, and is it allowed to keep beard of little length or of fashion style?


It is not obligatory for a Muslim to keep a beard, but it is a sunnah, as prophet Mohammad (pbuh) was having beard.

Narrated Ibn 'Umar: Allah's Apostle said, "Cut the moustaches short and leave the beard (as it is)." SAHIH AL- BUKHARI[Volume 7, Book 72, Number 781] .

There is no specific size, length, or shape specified in the Sunnah regarding the beard…the simple and direct command of the Messenger of Allah (saws) to believing males was: ‘let your beards grow’.

Some scholars take the command literally and declare that the beard be allowed to grow naturally as long as it grows; while others are of the opinion that it should be at least one fistful in length, while others say that any size is acceptable. Thus in our humble opinion, if one lets one’s beard grow to its full natural length it would be closest to the Sunnah and Command of the Messenger of Allah (saws), and if one grows a fistful or less than that, provided his intention is to sport a beard because it is the Sunnah of the Noble Prophet (saws), he will have his due reward for his obedience.

Some Muslims follow the fashion of some Hollywood star or a bollywood star or anybody else whom they love, this following anybody other than prophet Mohammad (pbuh) shows that they have weakness in their faith & love for Prophet Mohammad (pbuh). As a Muslim, The Prophet (saws) should be our role model in every respect & through all walks of life as Allah says in the Holy Quran :

“There is indeed the best model for you in the Messenger of Allah, for every such person looks forward to Allah and the Last Day, and remember Allah much”. Quran [33:21].

Thus a believer should always abstain from following anyone other than prophet Mohammad (pbuh) so that he may prosper in this world & here after. And Allah knows the best.

Liberty in sex for husband & wife?

Assalamu Alaikum: An Indonesian frend asked me a question: Can husband and wife bathe together. And can a husband and wife can see other's private parts during intercourse or during bathing or other time. Now i request u to guide me regarding answer....


Allah says in the Qur'an, "They (your wives) are your garments. And you are their garments." Quran[2: 187]

Narrated Hisham bin 'Urwa: (on the authority of his father) 'Aisha said, "Whenever Allah's Apostle took the bath of Janaba, he cleaned his hands and performed ablution like that for prayer and then took a bath and rubbed his hair, till he felt that the whole skin of the head had become wet, then he would pour water thrice and wash the rest of the body." 'Aisha further said, "I and Allah's Apostle used to take a bath from a single water container, from which we took water simultaneously." Sahih Al-Bukhari[Vol 1, Book 5, No. 272]

Narrated Ibn 'Abbas: The Prophet and Maimuna used to take a bath from a single pot. Sahih Al-Bukhari[Vol 1, Book 5, No. 253]

Narrated 'Aisha: The Prophet and I used to take a bath from a single pot called 'Faraq' Sahih Al-Bukhari[Vol 1, Book 5, No. 250]

Narrated Aisha: The Prophet and I used to take a bath from a single pot of water and our hands used to go in the pot after each other in turn. Sahih L-Bukhari[Volume 1, Book 5, Number 261]

Narrated 'Aisha: The Prophet and I used to take a bath from a single pot while we were Junub. During the menses, he used to order me to put on an Izar (dress worn below the waist) and used to fondle me. While in Itikaf, he used to bring his head near me and I would wash it while I used to be in my periods (menses). Sahih Al-Bukhari[Vol 1, Book 6, No. 298]

Thus it is clear from the above guidance of Prophet Mohammad (pbuh) that there is no harm if the husband and wife like to bath together.

Your question: And can a husband and wife can see other's private parts during intercourse or during bathing or other time.

Islam has given liberty to the husband & wife as Allah Says in the Holy Quran:

Your wives are as a tilth unto you; so approach your tilth when or how ye will. Quran[2:223]

Abu Dhar al-Ghafari reported: ‘The Messenger of Allah (saws) said: “there is a reward for you [even] in sex with your wife."’ The companions asked: ‘O Messenger of Allah (saws) is there a reward if one satisfies his passion?" He (saws) said: "Do you know that if he satisfies it unlawfully he has taken a sin upon himself? Likewise, if he satisfies it lawfully, he is rewarded." Related by Ahmad and Muslim.

Islam has allowed the husband and the wife every possible liberty to enjoy conjugal relations with each other, except three:

1. It is strictly prohibited to have sexual intercourse with one’s wife during her period of menstruation.

2. It is strictly prohibited to enter the woman through her anus.

Narrated byAbdullah ibn Abbas Allah's Messenger (peace be upon him) received the revelation, "Your wives are a tilth to you, so come to your tilth.....", that means from in front or behind, but avoid the anus and intercourse during menstruation. Al-Tirmidhi [Hadith: 3191]

3. Oral sex

Other than the above three restrictions, one may enjoy conjugal relations with one’s wife any place, any time, and any how their heart’s desire. There is absolutely no ‘satr’ between a husband and a wife bonded in the sacred institution of marriage in Islam, and there is absolutely no harm and no restriction in Shariah if one sees, touches, rubs, or fondles, etc. the private parts of their spouse with their hands during their union.

How to divide sacrifice meat on EID-UL_AZHA?


The Sunnah of our beloved prophet mohammad(pbuh) was to consume a part of it, distribute a part of it among his companions, and give a part of it to the poor and needy.

Allah Says in the Quran : The sacrificial camels we have made for you as among the Symbols from Allah: in them is (much) good for you: then pronounce the name of Allah over them as they line up (for sacrifice): when they are down on their sides (after slaughter), eat ye thereof, and feed such as (beg not, but) live in contentment, and such as beg with due humility: thus have we made animals subject to you that ye may be grateful. Quran(22:36)

It is not their meat nor their blood that reaches Allah: it is your piety that reaches Him: He has thus made them subject to you that ye may glorify Allah for His guidance to you: and proclaim the Good News to all who do right. Quran(22:37)

Narrated Salama bin Al-Aqua': The Prophet said, "Whoever has slaughtered a sacrifice should not keep anything of Its meat after three days." When it was the next year the people said, "O Allah's Apostle! Shall we do as we did last year?" He said, ' Eat of it and feed of it to others and store of it for in that year the people were having a hard time and I wanted you to help (the needy)." Sahih Al-Bukhari[Vol 7, Book 68, No. 476]

Fiqh-us-Sunnah Fiqh 5.115 A person offering a sacrifice may consume, without any restrictions, any amount of meat he may desire. He may likewise give away, or offer in charity any amount he may wish. Some scholars say that one may eat half, and give away the other half in charity, while others say that the meat be divided into three parts. Of these one may keep a part, distribute a part, and give in charity the third part.

If one wishes, one may eat all or part of it, or distribute all or part of it, or give to the poor all or part of it. There is absolutely no restriction on how much one should consume of the sacrificial meat, but it would be best to eat some oneself, distribute some, and give some to the poor and needy. And Allah knows the best.

Which is The Best Animals for Sacrifice on Eid?


There is consensus among scholars that a sacrifice must be of one of the animals, and that the best of these are, camels, then cows, then sheep and so on, for a camel is more beneficial for the poor because of its great size (more can benefit from its meat), and similarly a cow is more useful than a sheep.

There is disagreement, however, as to what is best for an individual to offer in sacrifice, a camel or a cow sharing one seventh of their price, or a sheep. Apparently the preference in this regard is to what is more useful and beneficial for the poor and the needy. And Allah knows the best.

What are the conditions for the animal to be sacrificed on the EID?


A sacrificial animal should satisfy the following conditions:

1) It should be two years old, if it is an animal other than a sheep. As for sheep, even a six month old lamb may be sacrificed, but it should be fat and healthy. As for a camel, it must be at least five years old, a cow two years old, and a goat a year old at least.

2) It should be healthy and free from all physical defects. It should not be one eyed, nor should it limp, be mangy, or very thin and weak. the scholars said: "If a man purchases a healthy animal for sacrifice. but later before its slaughtering it becomes sick or loses one eye or develops a limp in her legs, then such a person may slaughter it as a sacrifice and that will sulfice him (to fulfill his obligation). And Allah knows the best.


On Eid-ul-Adha, who can sacrifice animal ?


Allah Says in the Holy Quran:

It is not their (the sacrificial animal's) meat nor their blood that reaches Allah: it is your piety that reaches Him: He has thus made them subject to you that ye may glorify Allah for His guidance to you: and proclaim the good news to all who do right. Quran[22(Surah Hajj):37]

The sacrifice on the Eid ul Adha is obligatory on all the hajj pilgrims as it is considered an integral part of Hajj, i.e. every pilgrim must at least sacrifice one animal.

The offering of a sacrifice during the Day of Adha is a preferred Sunnah and thus voluntary For all the other believers who are not actually on the Hajj pilgrimage,. If one who is not performing the Hajj offers a sacrifice on the Day of Adha, one would be eligible to receive a huge reward from Allah; and if one for any reason is unable to offer it, there is no sin upon them.
