Correct Performance of Salah


Salah is after Iman the biggest order of Allah and we learn from a Hadith that Salah is the seperating line between a Muslim and Kafir. On the other hand Salah has great virtues and will be the key to Jannah for many.

But since Allah accepts only those acts of worship that are done in accordance with Sunnah, it’s important that we are careful how we are performing our Salah. Remember Allah doesn’t depend on our Salah, but we depend on his mercy.

So, here are some eBooks regarding this important subject:

May Allah reward all those who uploaded these!

    The Prophet’s Prayer Described by Shaykh Al Albaanee is a great book mashaaAllah, very comprehensive. One of the best books on salaah in my opinion.

    It woudl be better if anybody could find the original source of this hadiths with the name of narrator:

    Rasing the Index Finger During Tashahhud
    It is narrated that when Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) used to sit down to supplicate, (to recite tashahhud) he used to place his right hand on his right thigh and his left hand on his left thigh. He would indicate at the time of reciting the shahadah by raising his index finger. He would also join the ends of his thumb and middle finger (thereby forming a circle). [Sahih Muslim, chapter on the description of sitting-Hadith no.579]

    The reference has been given, so do some own research.

  5. Nadia says:

    Salaam-0-Alaikum,
    I can not find this hadis in Sahih muslim, this chapter contains only five, and words are not similar to given hadis.
    one of my friend told me this is fabrication can anyone answer please.
    we must know how to pray.

  6. True Life says:

    Wa Alaykumus Salam

    If you cannot find it in Sahih Muslim, then look for it in Tirmidhi.

  7. Nadia says:

    Salaam-0-Alaikum,
    please tell us about the reference if you know it, i can not find in Sahih Muslim, one of my friend is calling this reference as fabrication and mentioning fabrication done by deobandi ulema even in Quran.
    Please tell me this Hadis is in Sahih Muslim or it is a fabrication of Sahih Muslim.

  9. Nadia says:

    Salaam-0-Alaikum,
    here is a link of The Prophet’s Prayer Described by Shaykh Al Albaanee
    http://www.usc.edu/dept/MSA/fundamentals/pillars/prayer/albaani/prayer_1.html

    hope you may add this book also in your post.

  11. True Life says:

    Wa Alaykumus Salam

    I’ll definitley not add Shaykh Al-Albanee on the list for obvious reasons.

    Was Salam

  12. Talib says:

    Sister Nadia, we respect your concern. But we believe, with all due respect to the shyakh, that Albanee had made many dangerious errors in his works. Even many salafies do not agree with some of his fatwas. Brother Ture life I believe that you should set a link toward the book Fiqh Al Imam by Abdur Rahman Ibn Yusuf. Its a good read for people confused about the hanafi fiqh and salafis.

  13. Nadia says:

    Salaam-0-Alaikum,
    Brother Talib i agree that Albani and all human being can make mistake, can you be more specific if he has done any in the book of Salah?
    Brother True Life please give me your obviouse reason in the book of Salah so i may answer my friend also.
    Thanks a lot.

  14. True Life says:

    Wa Alaykumus Salam

    I think Talib has already spoken on this. The critics of Muslims who are serious about Taqleed about Shaykh Albanee are well known. Discussing it would end up in an endless forth and back discussion.

    Was Salam

  15. Nadia says:

    Salaam-0-Alaikum,
    Brother i am asking about the said book in specific, kindly give me any error done by albany in the book regarding Salah.

  16. Samira says:

    As Salaamu Alaykum, True Life
    My advice to you is to Fear Allah. When the Muslim or the Muslimah asks you a question and you know the answer why not give them the answer if you know. Why do you repeatedly give the same
    response?

    Either you know the answer or you don’t. If you don’t, then there is wisdom in saying, Allahu Alim.

    Sister Nadia, maybe this InshaAllah can answer your question. Check out this link, http://www.marifah.net/forums/index.php?s=4b6a1335fc98a4f4e2e5d8cb8f17b0ae&showtopic=2512&pid=10409&st=0&#entry10409

  18. Nadia says:

    Salaam-0-Alaikum,
    Thank you very much for answering my question, i have read your refered site.
    i am pasting some part from the refered site,
    ______________________________________________

    When you reach the words ‘La ilaha’ (there is no God) raise your index finger and tuck the middle, third and last finger into the palm, with the thumb and middle finger touching and forming a circle.

    Sayyiduna Wail (RA) says “I saw the Prophet (PBUH) make a circle with his thumb and middle finger, and lift the one next to it (the forefinger) praying with it in Tashahhud” – Ibn Majah 912 and Nasai 1264, Bouseeree (Chapter 163. no. 336) and Imam Nawawi(464) have both declared this hadeeth Saheeh.

    The index finger should only be raised once during the Tashahhud at the time mentioned. It should not be raised at any other point nor should it be constantly moved.

    Sayyiduna Ibn al Zubair (RA) says, “The Prophet (PBUH) would point with his finger when he prayed and he would not move it” – Abu Dawood 989, Nasai 1270, Abu Awanah 2/226 (Dar al Ma’rifah edition, Beirut), Baihaqi 2786 and Baghawi 676. Imam Nawawi has declared it Saheeh in al Majm’u 3/454

    Taken from a Poster printed by Turath Publishing, for more read the following book by Shaykh Riyad ul Haq:
    http://www.azharacademy.com/scripts/prodVi…p?idproduct=111
    _____________________________________________

    Later on they gave the scanned copy of Ahadith mentioned by salafi borther as well and i can see that the hadith metioned is the above mentioned book is not there,
    salafi brother says that he no one is denying the raising of finger but to keep it raised from the begining to the end and he supports his statment by quoting Imam Tahawi.
    I know even Hanafi can not deny Imam Tahawi.
    he is calling it the work done byu scholars as farbication.
    I had a feeling that the person who post the question on the refered site is having conversation from the same salafi friend.
    your refered site does not solve the issue but give some support to the salafi brother.
    Please make this point clear as it is very important for everyone.
    Allah will give Jaza-e-Khair if any other brother can answer this problem.

  19. ilmseeker says:

    Sister nadia as long as your gender concern you shouldn´t read this book , because there are differences between the prayer of men and woman.But according to the opinion of sheikh albani(rh) there is no deifference the prayer between men and woman. For authentic sources look in this articles.

    http://www.sunniforum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=945&highlight=woman+prayer

    Dont follow sheikh albani(rh) blindly because some chapter of his book sifatussalah has been refuted by one of the student of ibn baaz(rh), sheikh ibn uhteyman,one of al-Albani’s colleagues – the late Muqbil ibn Hadi of Yemen himself was for just pointing and not shaking like al-Albani. As long as you are a sister and have a few link to get knowledge practically it proves you are depended on internet.

    ANd make clear what you want to do during tashahhud , then we can see what can we do.

  20. ilmseeker says:

    And sister nadia as you say you will ask your friend, if he is a scholar then ask him, not an internet sheikh. Try before critic or judge get the certificate of any islamic institute(which people get after 7 years study.)Their is fatwa of sheikh that to involve someone self wihtout have enough knowledge talk about fitna, is a new source of fitna.(i can show you the full article about this sentence if oyu want). Otherwise sometime seeking evidence is a sign of ignorance. Try to be your self a knowledgble person before quoting any comment of your friend.

  21. ilmseeker says:

    If you can read arabic then read the book of sheikh Hamud al-Tuwayjiri (student/friend i cant remember, of sheikh ibn baaz):

  22. Nadia says:

    Salaam-0-Alaikum,
    Yes i have limited knowledge and access, but brother what i am asking is not the evidence but varification of given reference from a scholar. (think i am right to call scholar).
    there is another brother of ours calling the same evidence as a fabrication and giving all five Ahadith from the same chapter of Sahih Muslim and there is a difference.

    i am not asking about the issue discussed by late Muqbil ibn Hadi of Yemen about moving finger or not.
    even albani himself writing the hadith as zaeef, and you know the comments of late Muqbil ibn Hadi that this is not the ikhtilaaf but the matter of taqwa (may be albani want more taqwa for himself).
    the issue is fabrication of hadith, Please answer me in this regard, and please give me the different way of raising finger by the women in Islam.

    i am not a follower of albani, but it seems to me that no one is answering the raised issue i.e. FABRICATION

    kindly help me to answer salafi brother as he is getting strong from these kind of irrelevant answers.

  23. ilmseeker says:

    Sister you have just pasted what your ahlus friend wrote to you. The writer of this article is a sheikh from madina not a sheikh from deoband school. ANd you shoud first learn the ilm of hadiths to know what mean fabrication of hadiths. The sheikh had paraphized hadiths regarding the matter of tashahhud. He even´t quote the name of narrator. How fool can a fabricator be , when he even´tquote the name of narrator. If his intention were fabricate the hadiths he would quote also the name of narrators and then change the meaning of hadiths. It would be better if you could find the arabic version one, mistakes in translation can also find place. So before slandering a sheikh and giving fatwa of fabricate people should be careful.

    And sister you contradict yourself a lot of time in your comment. Read ths posts which you write before.

    YOur first issue was about sheikh albani(rh). you wrote “Salaam-0-Alaikum,
    Brother Talib i agree that Albani and all human being can make mistake, can you be more specific if he has done any in the book of Salah?”

    If you had allready known all his mistakes then why you asking again bro talib?

    ANd before saying sheikh albani(rh) as one of the best scholars of this era you should have read the comment of sheikhulislam ibn taymiah(rh):

    Imam Ibn Taymiya (ra) in Raf’ al-Malam says, “If we were believe that the all the Ahadith of Rasulullah (Sallalahu Alaihi Wasallam) were confined to books, then no Alim knows all that is written in books and nor is it possible for anyone to know all. Instead, at times a person has many books with him but does not know all which it contains. In fact, those who came before the compilation of these books were much more knowledgeable than those that came afterwards. This is due to many Ahadith were authentic in there time but reached to us through an unknown narrator, or with a broken change, or did not reach us at all…Their books were their hearts which contained many folds more than what is contained in these [present] books. And this is something that a person with some understanding of the matter has not the slightest doubt. (Ahtar al-Hadith al-Shareef p. 173& 186Dar al-Basha’ir al-Islamiya)

  24. ilmseeker says:

    And sister you dont have to asnwer your salafi friend , if he is intelegent then he will not ask you for his answer, either he will ask some scholar. ANd its the sign of true believer, whenever he gets problem he will ask a scholar not a laymen.

    Have some patient, we will inshallah find some hadiths regarding tashahud of woman.

    Or ask better in the forum where a lot of schoalr and muftis are present.

    http://www.sunniforum.com

    YOu salafi bro will say its a sufi forum, but well if you got your proves with hadiths from scholars then verily its better then to hear something from your non-scholar ahlus friend.

    Because to speak in such way of your friend is nothing then fitna.

    Salaam-0-Alaikum,
    Thank you brother for your time and reply, i am not here to defend albani or any other shiekh, the comments from Imam Ibn Taymiya are not against albani either.
    i do not know about the mistakes of albani in the book of salah, niether comments of his student proves him wrong but keeps that issue of Taqwa, mentioning may be albani have more taqwa.
    please try to understand that i am not defending salafi brother or his shiekh.
    please give me the exact hadith in Sahih muslim about pointing finger.
    I respect your reply but it is not addressing the issue.

    Even many of our Hanafi scholars have accepted this view. In the same way even in Jahri (Fajr, Magrib, Isha) salaah when the Imaam takes a pause the muqtadi’s recitation cannot be denied” “Allama Abdul Hai Hanafi in Sharhe Waqaya Umdaturriaya page 41.”

    Brother omar salafi your objections has been allready answered in the forum. So its an ignorance just to quote this things again and again. Well its the sign of allahs verse that allah has locked the heart of of those people who erred themself.

    Once again, its not a forum and brother true life is not an alim. So fear allah and ask a scholar if you are good in your intentions.

    Ask a new thread to the muftis and scholars :

    umar, it seems your so called teachers or internet shyckhs ( which u seem to be blindly following), know what our scholar have written, rather than what your own scholars have said. I could probably search google just like you did and find a similar and larger article about what salafi scholars have said against their own madhab. I’m really surprised at how hard headed some salafies can be, my brother if you tell me stop following the four schools blindy ( as it has become a silly slogan of the la-madhabies), i will tell you that, I rather blindy follow the imams and fuqaha of early times, rather blindly follow some shyckhs who came a few decades ago. You unfortunately we as an ummah have become victims of mass ignorance and arrogance of this day and age, thinking that we have the ability to discifer and differentiate between evidences, even though the like of imam shafi have spefically mentioned the citeria of being a mujtahid. But I’m sure you’ve met this criteria, right?

    Fact is that we can probably go in to every point of salah,
    and go back and forth debating and finding article online against each other, but most likely well probably end up at the same place started.

  31. ilmseeker says:

    Well i respect all my salafi brothers for their knowledge. FOr me they all seems to be a mujtahid like sheikh ibn baaz(rh) and sheikh albani(rh). Because my salafi brothers deny that they follow anybody. So they all are mujtahid of this centuries. Alhamdulillah.

    ANd if any salafi brother didn´t achieve this class, then verily its better to follow the salaf(including 4 imam) not any sheikh of fitna centuries(last centuries and coming). ANd it was the comment of sheikhul islam ibn taymiah (rh):

    “In fact, those who came before the compilation of these books were much more knowledgeable than those that came afterwards.”

    The muqtadi Must Not Recite Surah Fatiha
    ——————————————————-
    It is reported from Hazrat Ataa Ibn Yasaar (radhiallahu anhu) that he questioned Hazrat Zaid Ibn Thaabit (radhiallahu anhu) concerning reciting Qira’at with the Imaam. Hazrat Zaid (radhiallahu anhu) answered: “There is no recitation of the Glorious Qur’an in any salaah behind the Imaam”. [Sahih Muslim, chapter on Sujood-ut-Tilaawah, Hadith 577]

    The Muqtadi (follower) Should Listen and Remain Silent
    ———————————————————————
    Allah Ta’aala says: “When the Qur’an is being recited then listen attentively and remain silent so that mercy will be showered upon you”.

    Hazrat Abdullah Ibn Mas’ud, Abu Hurairah, Abdullah Ibn Abbas and Abdullah Ibn Mughaffal (radhiallahu anhum) state that this verse of the Quran was revealed with regards to the Khutba (of Juma’ah) and with regards to Salaah. [Tafsir Ibn Kathir, vol. 1 pg. 281]

    The Qiraat of the Imaam SUFFICES for the Muqtadi
    ——————————————————————
    Hazrat Abdullah Ibn Umar (radhiallahu anhu) used to repeatedly say: “Whoever performs salaah behind the Imaam, the Imaam’s qiraat suffices for him”. (Sunan Baihaqi; chapter on not reciting qiraat behind the Imaam — Imaam Baihaqi (R.A.) has stated that this Hadith is Sahih.)

  33. ilmseeker says:

    Sister nadia There is disagreement amongst the scholars as to how the pointing during Tashahudd should be done with some Hanafi Scholars preferring the opinion that index finger of the right hand should be raised during the denial part of Shahada (testimony) and kept raised till the end of the Salah.

    TEll your salafi friend to paste the quotation of imam tahawi in sunniforum.com (not in this blog where is nobody more knowledgble then my salafi brother).then let see what is the reason of disagreement among some scholars.

    from somewhere brother umer came in and raised some more issue, like wise the saying of deobandi scholars against tablighi jamaat.

    one group is giving reference and other one is putting him down.

    If you do not have the Sahih Hadith then please do not write the books like that.

    i do not know the shiekh from madina but still no one is providing the Hadith he mentioned in Sahih Muslim.

    i am repeatedly asking for the real hadith regarding pointing finger but you all people are putting mud over albani or bin baz.

    if you agree with the words of Imam Ibn-e-Tamiya then think both of the scholars are better that Talim and ilm seeker.

    think deen has become joke and anyone can write whatever he thinks ( i do not want to put down the scholar but why they leave grey area)

    to know the real manner of prayer is obligation to everyone.

    Assalamualaikum sister, Brother true life isn´t a scholar so and you are also not. To get the sources of chemistry theory you have to get Ph.d degree and then you can say or tell us how we get H²O and other things. But as a student you cant search the sources of chemistry. During your study time you have to learn from that book, and later you will get by yourself the sources. Brother truelife is not the writer of this book and also he is not a scholar. SO its not a sin to attached a book in his blog from where he dont have each and every sources.

    ANd you made mistake in your first comment. Its not a forum , just a blog. Comment sections are not here to ask a question but to give your opinion.

    And sister learn behave and dont slander a brother by calling that he is fooling others. Fear allah, verily you have to give answer for each and every comments which you give to others.

    YOu said to join sunniforum is your need or what? YOur need is to get sources from hadiths and quran from the scholars. ANd in sunniforum a few scholars are present. Which is better then other non-scholar freaks.

    Sister again you are in doubt about yourself. I wrote that you are in need and you have to go. YOur are seating in your sofa, so you dont have to walk 5 mile to go in sunniforum. Just 2-3 click is enough.

    I am not a sister so i dont know how the girls pray.

    Dont be lazy sister and ask by yourself by 2-3 mouse click.BEing a sister you have limatatiuon to go outside but not in sunniforum.

    Forgive me if i was harsh in my words, verily i have to give answer for my comments infront of allah. But somebody provokate me. MAy allah forgive me and whole ummah.

    Asalamu Alaykum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuhu,

    Sister Nadia like ilmseeker told already I am no Alim and to the defence of Shaykh Ilyas Faisal it has been mentioned already, that the translation of the Hadith is not so accurate. So, to actually criticise a book you’ll have to make the effort to read the original one.

    Why have I posted these links then? For informational purposes. Why am I running this Blog? To share thinks I find interesting or very informational about Islam with others. I hardly post something from my own pen here. So, if you don’t like what these high estimated Ulema have to say, then don’t read it or don’t visit this Blog. No one is forcing you.

    And Jazak’Allah khairan for accusing me of lying and firqa bazi, maybe this will help to reform my sinful self!

    If you allow myself would like to give an advice to you: Those who attained Taqwa prefere silence over useless discussions and talking. Maybe a thing to ponder about.

    You all make Du’a for me.

    Was Salam

    Salaam-0-Alaikum,
    Dear Brother true life i understand that we are not aalim.
    so you agree that the translation of the Hadith is not so accurate.
    since you have posted the topic then it is your responsibility to change the thing which is not accurate.
    you can post new translation without error to correct this one but if the problem is in the original text then may be our salafi brother is right.
    hope no one is rigid when the truth is clear to him/her, we should accept it unconditionally.
    yes why you are posting things which are not right is a question, may be you do not know it earlier and now you have given your comments that translation is not so accurate.
    i believe you have good intention and you are brave enough to change anything which is clearly not accurate.

    Please do not post any information which is not accurate.

    InshaAllah i will ask Ulema for this issue as possible.

    Those who attained Taqwa prefere silence over useless discussions and talking.
    DO YOU THINK THAT THIS ALL DISCUSSION IS USELESS?

    Assalamualaikum sister, again contradacting yourself with your comment.

    If he were a alim then he were also able to correct the whole information. ANd to judge the whole translation of bukhari he should also know the bukhari. If he paste an article from any sheikhul hadiths to get his mistakes he should also have ideas about Science of hadiths. YOur comment doesn´t make any sense as brother true life is not an alim. And still waiting for you and your non-scholar ahlus friend who are affraid to talk with the truth.

    @Nadia: I’m not responsible for that book. It has been written by a highly estimated Alim and translated by someone else and I am recommending it since it’s a great source.

    It’s like if on some Blog of my Blogroll a mistake happens, then I am the person to blame and correct things? We don’t even know yet what actually is the fault or if there even exists one, that the translation is not that accurate is just a possibility.

  44. Nadia says:

    Indeed the best speech is the Book of Allaah, and the best way is the way of Muhammad Sallallahu AlaihiWasallam. The worst of affairs are novelties, every novelty is an innovation, every innovation is misguidance, and all misguidance is in the Fire.

    Respected Brother Truelife no one is putting responsibility of that book on your shoulders, niether putting down that highly esteamed Aalim, and I hope that your intentions are also right.

    Brother in your post you wrote

    ” I am no Alim and to the defence of Shaykh Ilyas Faisal it has been mentioned already, that the translation of the Hadith is not so accurate.”

    and now you wrote

    “We don’t even know yet what actually is the fault or if there even exists one, that the translation is not that accurate is just a possibility.”

    I find it contradicting, I have written about your first comments. just want to make it clear that all my post was not to blame you but for Caution.

    Now for second statment, if you think that still the issue is underway and it has not been decided that what actually is the fault or if there is any.

    I am informing you again that the hadith of Sahih Muslim does not contain the same words in english or arabic versions both, i have asked Aalim for that (not so called internet Aalim).

    According to him it could be mistake in translation or if it is in the arabic also then it is clearly fabrication. (Mufti Umer Jeddah Saudi Arabia) he is not so called internet Aalim.

    if you know any hadith in the same book then please inform me also about that you may ask any Aalim of your choice.

    we should not be rigid in any issue as the Islam is not from our homes and anyone can make mistake as we are all human being.

    Brother just be truthfull and inshaAllah Allah will open a clear path for all of us.

    Brother Ilmseeker the Hadith is not in Bukhari it is Sahih Muslim, no one was asking to read the whole book but if you of any other person can do it then it is better for him.
    my point was to replace the translation with the correct one if available and if not available and it sure the the recent one is wrong then please remove it.

    you can read the virdict for the person who associate the falsehood with Rasool Allah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam.

    Please try to understand the importance of topic and do not reply for sake of replying only.

    the problem lies with the original text.

    Allah Hum Sab ko Hidayat de, AMEEN

  48. True Life says:

    Wa-Salam,

    Jazak’Allah khairan for posting the link, because in that topic your probleme is in the process of being solved. Read the latest post by Abu Naim.

  49. talib says:

    Yes indeed, i think Abu naim explains it nicely, also in his earlier post. Its a matter of version and translation.

  50. Nadia says:

    Salaam-0-alaikum,

    Indeed the best speech is the Book of Allaah, and the best way is the way of Muhammad Sallallahu AlaihiWasallam. The worst of affairs are novelties, every novelty is an innovation, every innovation is misguidance, and all misguidance is in the Fire.

    my point was the specific given hadith in sahih muslim, and Abu naim wrote in the last line

    “So obviously Shayk Ilyas deducted that part text on his own to make it clear Allahuahlam”

    means the original version does not contain these words

    “He would indicate at the time of reciting the shahadah by raising his index finger.”

    Brother truelife last post of Abu naim deals with the comments of Bayhaqi which he is also seeking, i mean he do not have these writings with him.
    About “supplicating with it”, Imaam Tahaawi said, “This is evidence that it was at the end of the prayer.”

    but this is not the issue, I may repeat the question for better understanding.

    Rasing the Index Finger During Tashahhud
    It is narrated that when Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) used to sit down to supplicate, (to recite tashahhud) he used to place his right hand on his right thigh and his left hand on his left thigh. He would indicate at the time of reciting the shahadah by raising his index finger. He would also join the ends of his thumb and middle finger (thereby forming a circle).
    [Sahih Muslim, chapter on the description of sitting-Hadith no.579]

    “He would indicate at the time of reciting the shahadah by raising his index finger.”

    These words of the above mentioned book are not present in the Sahih Muslim nor the above mentioned line is in the brackets (), so is this the problem of translation or the original text also contains the same addition?

    One of our salafi brother is calling this addition as fabrication in Sahih Muslim.

    who narrated that hadith?
    and howcome we can continue with translation or original text fabrication?

  51. Nadia says:

    Salaam-0-Alaikum,

    just to remind that you call this issue as my problem.

    “because in that topic your probleme is in the process of being solved.”

    Brother this is not only my problem.

  52. True Life says:

    Asalamu Alaykum Wa Rahmatullah,

    Yes, I was – or at least trying to – not only referring to brother Abu Naim’s last post, but to his latest posts (plural).

    As salamu aleykum,

    Indeed the narration referred to as no. 579 above is no. 1202 in the scan.

    I checked my Turkish edition, and that edition has the same numbering as 579.

    The words:

    QUOTE
    He would indicate at the time of reciting the shahadah by raising his index finger

    Are not in the hadith, however these words are in my copy: ”…when he sat for reading the Tashahhud duaa…”

    Shayk Zafar Ahmad Usmani says with ”Tashahhud duaa” is ment the part ”La ilaha ill allah” i.e. the shahadah.

    This is also clear in this narration:

    Ibn ‘Umar reported that when the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) sat for tashahhud he placed his left hand on his left knee, and his right hand on his right knee, and he raised his right finger, which is next to the thumb, making supplication in this way, and he stretched his left hand on his left knee.

    Another version on the authority of Ibn Umar says: When the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) sat for tashahhud, he placed his left hand on his left knee and placed his right hand on his right knee, and he formed a ring like (fifty-three) and pointed with his finger of attestation. (Sahih Muslim, Book #004, Hadith #1203)

    ‘Ali b. ‘Abual-Rahman al-Mu’awi reported: ‘Abdullah b. Umar saw me playing with pebbles during prayer. After finishing the prayer he forbade me (to do it) and said: Do as the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) used to do. I said: How did Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) do? He said that he (the Messenger of Allah) sat at tashahhud, placed his right palm on the right thigh and closed all his fingers and pointed with the help of finger next to the thumb, and placed his left palm on his right thigh. (Sahih Muslim, Book #004, Hadith #1204)

    Its clear that the Propthet first placed his right hand/palm on his knee, AND THEREAFTER he pointed.

    So Allahuahlam, placing ones hand/palm on the knee and pointing cant be done at the same moment..so Allahu ahlam the Prophet (saw) did first place his hand/palm on his knee/thigh AND THEREAFTER pointed at the moment he wanted to point…probably and Allah knows better at the time of shahadah as the Hanafi scholars say.

    (This was so explained by Mulla Ali Qari and Ibn al Humaam in this way see Ileau us Sunan)

    So obviously Shayk Ilyas deducted that part text on his own to make it clear Allahuahlam.

    Was salaam

    ———————————————————————
    Shayk Zafar Ahmad Usmani says in his Ileau us Sunan in the relevant chapter about pointing the finger in salah quoting from Al Mubarakpuri or Nawawi (dont no shure which one exactly as im saying this from memory), that Bayhaqi has recorded 2 evidenses for Hanafi and Shafi i.e. one proof for Hanafis i.e. to point at ”la” and lower at ”ill allah” and one proof for Shafi i.e. to point when saying ”ill allah”….however Shayk Zafar Ahmad Usmani says; ”i have not come across these narrations because we dont have the Sunan and other books of Bayhaqi at the hand, if someone has them please pass them.”

    Sister Nadia, I feel like you like to pick on and comment on everything – but unfortunately I am not all that into debating and discussing.
    Now, I think the Shaykh Ilyas has been defended enough, if there’s another opinion of how to use the fingers in Tashahhud then it’s not us to discuss it… because the actual Hanafi way has been clearly proven now.

    One fact that everyone has overseen is that Skaykh Ilyas never tried tell Hadith word for word, but he actually praphrased it and added proven things to make it easier to understand. But he never claimed that the actual Hadith goes like that, otherwise he would have stated a narrator and put “” marks. The reference gives you an insight from where the actual point of the chapter has been taken from.

    I kindly request you for Allah’s sake not try to go endless long forth and back on this matter. Both stances have been made clear – although your accussations lost their ground under their feet. This is what happens when the lay(wo)men try prove wrong everything they never heard of – although the mutakallim or writer has spent most of his life to study Islam.

    Wallahu Alam.

    Dont forget this verse:[17:36] You shall not accept any information, unless you verify it for yourself. I have given you the hearing, the eyesight, and the brain, and you are responsible for using them.

    DOnt pretend like a sheikhul hadith and judge any paraphised hadiths of any scholar. WE know how rediculous it is just knowing the ABC of islam , picking the mistakes of scholar.

    And to discuss anything do it with scholars, then we will see how much sheikhul hadiths you ahlus are.

    DOnt be afraid and confused other muslims as brother weakboys said. Just pasting the misstranslation and own interpretation is tactic of christain and shias.

    https://truelife200vi.wordpress.com/2008/01/08/what-means-alam/

    This is absolute proof as to why you can’t trust anything just copied and pasted. With or without scanned photos. Your photo and disgraceful description of what it was meant to prove means nothing to any of us until you can refute that you lied blatantly to all of us on the above post or copied from a liar. Until such time, your photo is of the same value to me – another lie or copy from a liar. After all you pseudo-ahle hadith are so accepting on ciritizing hadiths and narrators, this is one usool of hadith, when one is proven to be a liar, his chain automatically becomes weak and doubtful (his narration, not the Hadith itself if narrated by others, and all other narrations with him in its chain is doubtful). So this goes the same for you, do we really want to spend all day and night in disproving all those titles and references you reckon prove whatever? You have more than likely missed all the commenary and made your own – MashALLAH a mufasir, faqih and mujtahid of course.

    Br Ahmad Deedat (RAH) ended up getting more and more frustrated towards the end of his life (RAH) because of having to repeat the same thing over and over again just because people wouldn’t read the previous material. So relax on brother True Life with not giving the same refutations and references already provided.

    For the benefit of those unwilling to search truth.

    8 OR 20 RAK’AHS?

    In sister Nadia’s tradition of only wanting Sahih, Please refer to Sahih Bukhari and his chapter on Tahajjud:

    http://www.usc.edu/dept/MSA/fundamentals/hadithsunnah/bukhari/021.sbt.html

    and confirm number 248

    then see

    http://www.usc.edu/dept/MSA/fundamentals/hadithsunnah/bukhari/032.sbt.html

    and confirm number 230

    The exact same hadith with an extra narrator in the Taraweeh. Now, did the Prohet (SAW) perform Tarawih outside Ramadan or did He (SAW) perform Tahajudd in Ramadan. The answer is obvious.

    I was a new muslim, converted from hinduism to christianity first and then to islam but i need to revise after this,

    if a person is without any finger, and i guess there many now after kashmire, palestine, ahghanistan, iraq and many others, so at what time will he raise his finger, index, i think it was?

    waiting, pl. respect my new faith getting old now

    At the 55th message, for ‘umar, I’d like to add this fatwa of Hadhrât Mufti Taqi Uthmani (hafizahullah) in which he categorically denies making the fatwa about writing surah fateha with urine (astaghfirullah).
    If your truly ‘ahl-ul-hadith’, you will remove your message or ask to the mod to do so, as I know ahl-ul-hafith are attached to speak the Haq every time.
    Jazakumullahu keyran.

    Assamaoalaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu.
    As an ilm seeker the site is very helpful. I have some doubt regarding dress for men; is wearing dress under ankle Hara? If so, where can I find this in black and white. Please guide me.

    Fatwa: 267/270=L)

    It is unlawful to wear pyjama etc below ankle though without the intention of arrogance. If one wears it out of arrogance then it has double sin; one for wearing below ankle and second for arrogance. (Extracted from Imdadul Fatawa: 4/122)

    It is prohibited to have ones garment (trousers, qamees, jubba etc) flow beyond ones ankles. This is a major sin. If ones trousers is below ones ankles, he should fold the bottom up to above the ankles at all times, in salaah and out of salaah. There is no Hadith that prohibits the folding of the trousers above the ankles. There is another Hadith in which Rasulullah Salalahu Alayhi Wasallam prohibited one from keeping away his trousers from touching the ground. That is another issue and should not be confused with the prohibition of flowing ones garment below his ankles.

    And Allah Knows Best
    Mufti Ebrahim Desai
