Private conversations

No good is there in much of their private conversation, except for those who enjoin charity or that which is right or conciliation between people. And whoever does that seeking means to the approval of Allah – then We are going to give him a great reward.

[Qur’aan 4:114]


Narrated Um Kulthum bint `Uqba:

That she heard Allah's Messenger (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) saying, "He who makes peace between the people by inventing good information or saying good things, is not a liar."

[Sahih al-Bukhari 2692]

Tawaaf al-Quduum

The majority of scholars consider the Tawaaf al-Quduum to be a Sunnah. The Maaliki consider the Tawaaf al-Quduum to be Waajib, in association with certain conditions, for the one performing the Hajj al-Qiraan and Hajj al-Ifraad.


According to the majority of scholars it is not permissible to perform the Sa'y prior to the Tawaaf. If someone performs Sa'y prior to Tawaaf then his Sa'y is not correct according to this view. Since Sa'y is a Rukn from the 'arkaan of Hajj, the person will have to redo the Sa'y if he wants his Hajj to be valid. 


Ibn Uthaymiin is of the opinion that if someone performs the Sa'y prior to the Tawaaf then it suffices though one should not do so. His evidence is the following Hadith:


Usamah bin Sharik said “I went out with the Prophet (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) to perform Hajj, and the people were coming to him. One would say “Apostle of Allaah(sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) I ran between Al Safa’ and Al Marwah before going round the Ka’bah or I did something before the its proper time or did something after its proper time. He would reply “No harm will come; no harm will come except to one who defames a Muslim wrongfully. That is the one who will be in trouble and will perish?

[Sunan Abi Dawud Hadith No. 2015]

A woman menstruates during Hajj al-Tamattu’

If a woman who is performing Hajj al-Tamattu' begins to menstruate prior to the Tawaaf of Umrah and fears that she will miss the Hajj, she enters into Ihraam for Hajj and becomes one who is now performing the Hajj al-Qiraan. 

She will not make up the missed Tawaaf al-Quduum.

He can prevent her

The Jurists have explicitly stated that the husband has the right to prevent his wife from eating anything which has a detestable smell to it such as garlic, onion, and leek because it prevents one from kissing and fully enjoying [ones wife].

Do not let their wealth and children impress you

So let not their wealth or their children impress you. Allah only intends to punish them through them in worldly life and that their souls should depart [at death] while they are disbelievers.

[Qur’aan 9:55]


Allaah told His Prophet (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) not to be amazed at the wealth and children of the MunaafiQuun because Allaah only intends to punish them by means of it in this world by making them slave to attain these worldly chattels and then by making them face problems in regards to them.


It has been attributed to al-Hasan al-Basri that he was of the opinion that the Verse means do not be amazed at their wealth and children in this world and Allaah will punish them because of them in the next world. Imaam al-Tabari adopted this opinion. Ibn Kathiir said it was a strong opinion. 


Allaah addressed the Prophet in this Verse but the address is meant for the entire Ummah.
