A:
It is against the etiquette Of Qur'aan to listen to it in those conditions. Concentration will not be full. Qur'aan should be listened to with serenity and concentration.

Q: What is the method of Sajda Tilawat for a Hanafi out of Salaah?

A: It can be done from the standing position or from the sitting position. Face Qiblah, say the Takbeer (Allaahu Akbar), go into Sajdah, recite the Tasbeeh thrice, say the Takbeer and come out of Sajdah. It is now done. Salaam will not be made.

For the Sajdah to be valid, all the requisites of Salaah will be necessary, i.e. Wudhu, covering of Satar, facing Qiblah, etc.

Verses of the Quraan and Benefits

E-mail Print PDF

Q: I was talking to my mom and we talked about spiritual healing by reading certain ayats (verses) numerous time or a name of Allah to make things hard easier. I know all benefits are from Allah. Then I said Quran has the cure for everything and a thought came up that all benefits from that is from Allah. It's as if Iforgot. Now I'm scared I might have committed shirk (polytheism).

Also, is there any shirk in asking Sheikhs for ayats or Names of Allah which you read numerous times and Allah will make things easier for that person? Example: if you have financial problems and you ask a Sheikh what should I read so that Allah makes things easier for me.

A:
The Qur'aan is the Kalaam (speech) of Allah Ta'aala. A person subconsciously knows that all benefit is from Allah, thus no Shirk was committed. You knew that all the time but suddenly the thought came to the fore and you became worried.

There is no Shirk in the second question. It is similar to Du'aas taught to us by Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi wa Sallam). They are the formulas, with the belief that the effect comes from Allah Ta'aala alone.

Q: 'Surah Al -Baqara: read for the purpose of making the devil flee from one's home.' Can a recording of the above surah be used as it is not always possible to read the surah at one sitting owing to its lenght? Will it have the same effect?

A: It will not have the same effect but is better than nothing. The day you cannot recite, put the recording.
Allah Ta'aala knows best.

Reading for Deceased

E-mail Print PDF

Q: A common practice after a person dies is that friends and family get together to recite Quran and make zikr for 3 nights. Thereafter they then keep 40 nights and then 100 nights. I was told that the rooh (soul) goes through different stages on these nights. Is it a bidah (innovation) and is it wrong to practice this?

A
. It is not recorded anywhere that the Rooh goes to different levels on these days, this is an incorrect belief. The custom of 07, 40, 100 days etc. is an innovation and must be avoided. Both the belief and custom must be shunned.

Mufti Siraj adds:


Please remember that all acts of Shari'ah must be proven by Qur'aan, Sunnah, or the practices of Sahaabah. Such acts cannot become part of Deen just through custom or superstitious beliefs. Rasoolullah (Sallallaahu alayhi wa Sallam) said: Whoever introduces into this Deen of ours that (practice) which is not of Deen, (he or the practice) will be rejected.” (Bukhari Shareef)
