IS GHUSL NECESSARY STRAIGHT AFTER INTERCOURSE?

Islam is the religion of cleanliness. Allah Almighty says, “Truly Allah loves those who turn unto Him, and loves those who have a care for cleanness.” (Al-Baqarah 2:222) The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) is reported to have said,“Cleanliness is half of faith.”

It is permissible to delay ghusl (ritual bath) until the time of Fajr, but it is recommended for the husband and wife to perform wudu (ablution) before they sleep. This was the view of the majority of scholars, and An-Nawawi reported that there was scholarly consensus on this point. (Al-Kafi, 1:173; Al-Muhadhdhab, 1:33; Al-Mughni, 1:229)

Their evidence is the hadith of `A’ishah (may Allah be pleased with her), whose authenticity is agreed upon. She narrated that when the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him) wanted to sleep whilst he was in a state of impurity (janabah), he would wash his private parts and perform ablution as for Prayer.

They also use as evidence the report narrated by Ibn `Umar (may Allah be pleased with him) who said that `Umar said, “O Messenger of Allah, may anyone of us sleep when he is in a state of impurity?” He said, “Yes, if he performs ablution.” (Al-Bukhari and Muslim)

The wisdom behind performing ablution is that it reduces the impurity and is better for the body.

Allah Almighty knows best.

SEX BEFORE MARRIAGE AND ITS CONSEQUENCES.

In the name of Allah, most compassionate and most merciful. “From among the signs of the Hour (end of time) are that religious knowledge will be taken away (by the death of religious scholars), ignorance will prevail, drinking of alcoholic drinks, and there will be a prevalence of Zina.” – Prophet (saw) We begin our topic with these words of our beloved Prophet. How true were his words? We live in a world where all these things are prevalent and unfortunately in our Muslim community as well. Many of our Muslim brothers and sisters are trapped in the evil of Zina and it has become a norm for them, as a result they don’t even consider it haram and unlawful. Allah says in holy Quran: Sūrah al-Isrā’, 17:32: “And do not even approach zina, for it is an outrageous act, and an evil way…’’ We are not going into detail about why Zina is unlawful but in this article, you will find the consequences of this sin. How this affects a life of a person physically, mentally, spiritually and so

THE MAN WHO INSPIRE MILLIONS OF MUSLIMS EVEN WHEN HE IS PASSED AWAY (ALI BANAT)

Ali Banat is a sydney born who was diagnosed with Cancer and doctors have given him only 7 months to live. Despite his circumstances, he considers this a gift from Allah. Ali Banat, is a young man who, in his own words, was “gifted” with a stage 4 cancer throughout his body. He was given just a few months to live but took this great test as an opportunity to change his life. Upon receiving this news he immediately sold his business, gave up his lavish lifestyle and prized possessions and began a new mission to give up his Dunya and work for his Akhira. Ali has humbly dedicated the remainder of his life to helping those who are far less fortunate than him and in doing so, set up the charity MATW Project (Muslims Around The World) which has already changed the lives of so many. Being diagnosed with cancer is like death sentence for many. But this is not the way Australian Muslim Ali Ali Banat sees it. For him, the sickness is unquestionably a gift from Allah. “At this point in m
