Question: Noble Shaykh, I notice some people, whilst in the sujood (position) they lift one of their feet, or (even) both. So what is the ruling regarding this action?

Response: It is not permissible for the one in sujood to lift any of the (required) seven (body) parts (from the ground), because the Prophet (sal-Allaahu `alayhe wa sallam) said:

((I have been commanded to make sujood upon seven parts (of the body): upon the length of the nose to the forehead, and he pointed with his hand to his nose, upon the palms of the hand, upon the knees and upon the tips of the toes)).

So if anyone lifts one foot or both of them, or (lifts) his hand or both of them, or (lifts) his nose or his forehead of both of them, then certainly his sujood is nullified and not counted, and if his sujood is nullified, then indeed his (entire) salaah is nullified.

Shaykh al Allamah Muhammad ibn Uthaymeen rahimahullah:

At-Tasmeeya (Saying Bismillah) in the Shar’iah can be a condition for the correctness of the action, and it could be obligatory, and it could be a Sunnah, and it could be a Bid’ah (Innovation):

It would be a condition for the correctness of an action: Like in slaughtering and hunting, so it is not dropped – upon what is correct – not intentionally nor ignorantly, and not out of forgetfulness.

It would be obligatory: Like in the Wudu

It would be Mustahab (Recommended): Like the Tas’miya (Saying Bismillah) when eating – upon the view of the majority (of the scholars) – and some of the scholars have said that it is obligatory, and that is what is correct.

It would be a Bid’ah (Innovation): Like if he says the Tas’miya before the Athan, example, if he wants to make Athan he says “Bismillah al Rahmaan al Raheem”!, and likewise with the Salah.

And as for the recitation of the Quran: Then it (the Basmala) is said at the beginning of the Surah.

As for in the course of the Surah (anywhere in the Surah other than the beginning): Then some of the scholars have said that it is recommended to say “Bismillah”, and other scholars have refuted this -and it is correct – and said: “Allah has not ordered us before reciting Quran except with ” Authu Billahi min ash Shaytaan ar Rajeem”, so if you intend on reciting from in the course of the Surah then do not do Tas’miya.

Question: If after repeated attempts, a person is not able to apply something that he exhorts others to do, is it still permissible for him to call others to do that action? what if he does so supposing that the person he is calling will be able to apply what he failed to apply himself?

Answer: When one is inviting others to do a good thing that he himself is not capable of doing, then yes, he should call others to do it. An example of this is if someone calls others to pray late at night while he himself is not able to do so. If someone calls others to give charity, but he himself has no sufficient resources to give charity, then we tell him to go ahead and invite others to give charity. But as for him calling to something that he is capable of applying but doesn’t then this is foolish in intellect and astray in religion.

Shaykh Al-Albâni رحمه الله :

“And the purpose of the commandment for wearing the Jilbâb is to cover the beauty of a woman. So it is not sensible that the Jilbâb itself should be attractive! And this is as you see very clear and self-evident.” 

[Taken from the book entitled: جلباب المراة المسلمة في الكتاب والسنة – The Jilbâb of the Muslim woman as in the Qur’ân and Sunnah, pg.74. Authored by Al Imâm, Al Mujaddid, Al Muhaddith, ash-Shaykh Al-Albâni]

Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen (rahimahullaah) said:

“How can the believer be content to live in the land of the kuffaar where the rituals of kufr are proclaimed openly and rule belongs to someone other than Allaah and His Messenger, seeing that with his own eyes, hearing that with his own ears and approving of it, and even starting to feel that he belongs there and living there with his wife and children, and feeling as comfortable there as he does in the Muslim lands, even though he and his wife and children are in such great danger and their religious commitment and morals are in such peril?”

Allaah made it obligatory upon all the servants to reject and disbelieve in at-taaghoot, and to believe in Allaah. Ibnul Qayyim (May Allaah have mercy upon him) said:

“At-taaghoot is anyone whom the servants go beyond the due bounds, whether it is someone worshipped, obeyed or followed.”

The taaghoot are many, and their heads are five:

1. Iblees (Satan), may Allaah’s curse be upon him.

2. Whoever is worshipped and is pleased with that.
3. Whoever calls the people to worship them.
4. Whoever claims to possess anything from the knowledge of the affairs of the hidden and unseen.
5. Whoever judges by other than what Allaah sent down.

The proof is the saying of Allaah, the Most High:
“No one is to be compelled to enter the religion; true guidance has been made clear and distinct from falsehood. So whoever rejects at-taaghoot and truly believes and worships Allaah alone, then has grasped the firmest handhold that will never break.”

This is the meaning of ‘laa ilaha illa Allaah’.

This is pointing to the fact that it is obligatory to worship Allaah alone and sincerely without any partners, because the first thing that Allaah commanded the servants with was to believe in Allaah and disbelieve in at-taaghoot. Moreover, they are many but their heads are five.

It means their leaders and those who a blindly followed by them.

1. Iblees; he is the outcast and accursed Satan to whom Allaah said: “My curse is upon you till the day of resurrection.” [Saad 38:78]
Iblees was with the angels, in their company and performing their actions. Then when he was commanded to prostrate to Aadam, the foulness, disdain and haughty pride within him was manifested and he refused to prostrate, became haughty and became from the disbelievers. So he was cast out from the Mercy of Allaah, the Mighty and Majestic.

2. Whoever is worshipped and pleased with that; he is the one who is worshipped besides Allaah and is pleased that he is being worshipped besides Allaah; he is one of the heads of the taaghoots and Allaah’s refuge is sought from that and it is the same whether he is worshipped in his lifetime or after his death, if he dies whilst having been pleased with that.

3. Whoever calls people to the worship of himself; it is anyone who calls the people to worship him, even if they do not do so. He’s one of the heads of the taaghoots whether the people responded to his call or not. (more…)

Question:

Is there proof from the Book or the Sunnah or action of the Prophet
(peace and blessing upon him) for shaking hands when one enters upon
those that are sitting? May Allah reward you with good.

Answer:

I don’t know anything of this kind from the Sunnah, for this reason it
is not appropriate for you to do so. Some people when they enter a
gathering they begin with the handshake from the first person to the
last person and this is not legislated from what I know, and shaking
hands is only for when meeting one another, as for when entering the
gathering, then it is not from the manhaj of the Messenger (peace and
blessing upon him or his companions) that they would do that. The
Messenger (peace and blessing upon him would come and sit at the end
of the majlis (sitting room) and we never heard also that if he sat at
the end of the majlis that they would stand up and shake his hand, so
shaking hands in this manner is not legislated. I asked about this to
those who we rely upon from our Shaykhs, so they said we do not know
for this an origin in the sunnah…
