Islam The Only Way To ALLAH



Q 1: Which is the foremost pillar of Islaam?
A. You have already learnt about the pillars of Islaam in the previous chapter. After having embraced Islaam and corrected one's beliefs consistent with the true Ahle Sunnat creed the foremost duty which is imposed upon the believers is Salaat (prayer). The importance of Salaat can be gauged from the fact that all commands of Allah were delivered to the Holy Prophet on the earth but Salaat was gifted to him on the night of ascension(Meraj).

Q 2: What is Salaat(prayer)?
A. A specified and pure Islaamic way of worship which Allah Almighty taught to the Holy Prophet who in turn taught to his Ummah (community) is Salaat (prayer). By offering prayer Muslims prove their humblest obedience and obeisance to Allah Almighty and submit to His Highest Magnificence and Grandeur. The praying believer is dear to Allah provided he offers prayer heart and soul.

Q 3: What things are essential for prayer?
A. Somethings are "Sharaait" (conditions) for offering prayer and some are "Faraaid" (obligatory prerequisites) during performance of prayer. Prayer will not be valid unless these conditions and prerequisites are met.

Q 4: How many kinds of "conditional things" are there for prayer?
A. There are two kinds of conditional things for prayer i.e. (1). About prayer's becoming Waajib (essential) for one to offer (2)Soundness of prayer i.e. how will the prayer be valid.

Q 5: What are the conditions of prayer's being "Waajib"?
A. There are four conditions for prayer's being "Waajib" i.e. one must be Muslim, sane, mature and the time of prayer has arrived. Thus the prayer is equally incumbent upon every sane and matured Muslim irrespective of man and woman, poor and rich, ruler and ruled and master and slave.

Q 6: What are the conditions for soundness of prayer i.e. how will the prayer be valid?
A. There are six conditions for prayer to be valid or in order:
a. "Tahaarah"(purification of the body).
b. Covering of the body (at least)from the navel to the knees.
c. Facing the Qiblah (Ka'bah).
d. Observance of due time.
e. Expression of "Ni-yat" (intention).
f. Takbir-e-Tahreema(utterance of words - "Allah is the Most Great" to commence the prayer.


Q 1: What does "Tahaarah" mean?
A. Tahaarah means that the body and cloths of the believer who intends to offer prayer must be free of filth/impurity and place should also be clean and pure.

Q 2: How many kinds of "Tahaarah" are there?
A. There are two kinds of Tahaarah i.e. minor purification and major purification. Minor
purification is "Wudu"(ablution) and major is "Ghusl" (bath).

The things which make ablution obligatory are called "Tahaarat-e-Sughraa"(impurities) and which make bath obligatory are called "Tahaarat-e-Kubra" (grave impurity i.e.filth).

Q 3: How many kinds of impurity are there?
A. Impurity is of two kinds i.e. invisible and visible.

Q 4: What is invisible impurity?
A. Invisible impurity is that impurity which can not be seen but according to Shariat it is impurity. For example, to be without ablution or without bath.

Q 5: What is the method of purifying oneself from invisible impurity?
A. If one needs ablution he should perform it, if needs bath should do it to purify himself from invisible impurity.

Q 6: What is visible impurity?
A. Visible impurity is filth which sticks to the body or cloth and is also seen like urine, faeces etc.

Q 7: How many kinds of visible impurity are there?

Q 8: What injunction is there for filth?
A. If filth sticks to the body or cloth(s) larger (more)than that of a "Dirham" (small silver coin), its removal and purification is Fard(obligatory). Without purification prayer will not be valid. If it is equivalent to "Dirham", its removal and purification is "Wajib" (essential). Offering of prayer with such filth will invalidate the prayer and it will have to be repeated after bath and washing of cloths as the case may be. In case the filth is less than "Dirham" its removal and purification is "Sunnat" (practice of the Holy Prophet). Offering of prayer in this condition will be in order but against the Sunnat. Hence it is desirable to repeat the prayer?

Q 9: To which thing is "Dirham" equivalent in Pakistan?
A. "Dirham" is equivalent to 4 1/2 "Mashah" in case the impurity is thick. A "Mashah" is equal in weight to 16 grains.

If the filth is in liquid form like urine or wine then the "Dirham" size will be equivalent to the depression of a palm i.e. silver rupee of Pakistan.

Q10: What injunction is there for impurity?
A. It is no matter if a portion of cloth or a limb of the body is polluted less than l/4th by impurity, but in case of equivalent to l/4th, the removal and washing of impurity is Wajib(essential) and if it is more than a quarter then to purify it is Fard obligatory) otherwise prayer will not be valid.

Q11: What injunction is there for filth if falls into any liquid edible thing?
A. Falling of filth (even a drop) irrespective of light or grave impurity into any liquid edible stuff will render the whole quantity impure.

Q12: Which things are filth?
A. These things are filth: Urine, faeces, flowing flood, pus, mouthful vomit, water comes from infected eye (s), dung and urine of those animals whose flesh is unlawful for food, dung of horse and all other lawful animals, droppings of hen and duck, every kind of urine, pork, bone, hairs, blood of lizard and chameleon, spittle of beasts and animals etc.

Q 4: What is "Maa-e-Musta'mal"?
A. "Maa-e-Musta'mal" is the water which falls from the parts of the body during Wudu or Ghusl or that water in which one who had no Wudu dipped his hand or tip of finger or even nail. Such water is fit for other use than Wudu and Ghusl.

Q 9: What about "Makrooh" (odious) water?

Q10: Whose sweat and spittle are impure and odious?
A. The animals whose used or left-over water/eatables are impure their sweat and spittle are also impure and whose used or left-over thing is pure, their sweat and spittle are also pure. And whose used or left-over water/food is Makrooh, their sweat and spittle are also Makrooh. However, cloths do not become impure if ass's or mule's sweat sticks to it in whatever quantity.

Q 11: When does the water of a big canal or pond become impure?
A. The water of a canal and big pond falls within the parameter of flowing water. Thus it does not become impure if any filth fell into it. However, if the filth renders the water uncoloured or distasty or smelly then it is impure.

A. There are different injunctions for different cases. For example, an animal (except pig) falls into a well and nobody is certain whether any filth was sticking to its body or not, in such situation the water of the well will be considered pure. However, twenty cans full of water will be drawn out and thrown away and if it was sure that the animal carried filth when fell, the well will be considered impure and all water will have to be drained out. In case its mouth touched the water, the injunction about its spittle and used or left-over water/food will be applicable to this case.

A. The same injunction as to the animal which falls and dies in well applies to the carrion or dead animal.

2. If a rat or mole, sparrow or the like falls into a well and dies therein, then twenty (preferably thirty) cans full of water will have to be drawn out and thrown away to purify/cleanse it.
3. In case of falling of a pigeon, hen, cat and the like into a well, forty to sixty cans full of water will have to be drawn out and thrown away for its purification.

Q 6: What about an aquatic animal that dies in a well?
A. The water of a well will not become impure if any aquatic animal dies therein. However the water will become impure if an amphibian dies in a well like duck.

Q 7: When will the water of a polluted well be considered pure?
A. After having been drained out or drawn out the requisite quantity of water from well, the well will become pure. There is no need even to wash the walls of the well or the can and rope thereof through which the water is drawn from the well.

Q8: Will a polluted well become pure if the water is drained out bit by bit (not in one go)?
A. The requisite quantity of water has to be drawn out from the polluted well, whether in one go or bit by bit to purify the well. Doing the job at the same time is no precondition.

Q 9: What should be the size of can to draw out the water from a well?
A. The same can which is placed on well and used for drawing the water will be used for purifying it. No matter of which size it is.

Q10: If a carrion or dead animal is taken out from well and nobody knows when it fell or died, what injunction is there to this effect?
A. If nobody knows as to when the carrion or animal fell and died in the well, then the water of the well will be considered impure from the time it was seen/found. In case people knew about it and even then used the water for Wudu and Ghusl and offered Salaat, their worship so performed will be void.

Q11: How to purify/cleanse a well whose water does not cease but keeps oozing out?
A. The quantity of water of such well should be estimated and then draw out the estimated quantity regardless of the water that oozes out during the process.
