There are enemies from among your spouses

When the spouse and the child undertake the actions of an enemy, then they are an enemy. There is no act more vile than coming between a slave and obedience [to his Creator].

 

O you who have believed, indeed, among your wives and your children are enemies to you, so beware of them. But if you pardon and overlook and forgive – then indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.

[Qur’aan 64:14 – Translation Sahih International]

 

The phrase من أزواجكم which Sahih International has translated as wives is general and includes both the husband and the wife.

The Verse is general and includes every sin a person commits because of his/her wife/husband or children.

The eyes which will not see the Fire

There is a hadiith narrated by al-Tabaraani. Sheikh al-Albaani graded it authentic when all the routes of transmission by means of which it has reached are taken into consideration. 

 

It mentions three people whose eyes will never see the Fire [of Hell]. One of the eyes mentioned are the ones kept away from looking at those things which Allaah has forbidden to look at. 

 

Today, we live in a society dominated by scantly dressed females. Porn is easily accessible. You see half-covered and nude females on any TV show you turn on.  

 

Modesty has been lost. 

 

Safeguard your eyes. Look away whenever you see something impermissible. Remind yourself that you are giving up a pleasure of this temporary world for safety from the eternal Fire of Hell

 

And if you make the mistake of looking. If you look because the devil or your Nafs overpowered you, then weep out of the fear of Allaah for what you have done. Because the second pair of eyes which are mentioned in the hadith are those which weep out of the fear of Allaah.

 

They, too, will not see the Fire.
 

ثلاثة لا ترى أعينهم النار: عين حرست في سبيل الله, وعين بكت من خشية الله, وعين كفت عن محارم الله

Tasliim in funeral prayer

Six Companions of the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu alayhi wa allam) have been reported to have said only one Tasliim to end the funeral prayer.

The second Tasliim is a Sunnah in the sight of the Shaafi'i school of thought and permissible in the sight of the Hanaabilah.

Tahaarah for Tawaaf

Tahaarah is a condition for the validity of the Tawaaf according to the majority of scholars. 

They have used the following hadith as evidence

Ibn Taymiyyah and Ibn Uthaymiin hold the opinion that Tahaarah is not a condition for the validity of the Tawaaf. According to them if someone is performing the Tawaaf and passes wind, then he completes the Tawaaf and does not have to perform Wuduu.

Tawaaf al-Ziyaarah and Tawaaf al-Quduum

Tawaaf of the Sacred House is Mustahabb for those who are not performing Hajj or Umrah at any time. This applies to the person who is returning to Makkah from travel and to those who are not from the people of Makkah.

 

The Tawaaf al-Ziyaarah is a Rukn from among the 'arkaan of Hajj for the one who is performing Hajj. His Hajj is not complete without it. It is also named Tawaaof al-'ifaaDah and Tawaaf al-Hajj. 

 

As for the Tawaaf of al-Quduum, then the majority of scholars say it is a Sunnah. Some have said it is Waajib.
