Sujud Sahwi and Makruh Elements (MM 24/8/08)

Munyatul Musolli 24th August 2008

Sujud Sahwi (continued).

Sujud sahwi is done only once (2 sujuds with 1 sitting in between). This is regardless the count of sunnah ab’ad being missed.

  1. State your intention (niat) to do sujud sahwi before actually performing it.
  2. Perform it after saying the salawat of the final tasyahhud, and before salam.
  3. Observe the rules as in doing regular sujud in solah.
  4. Recite “سُبْحَانَ مَنْ لاَ يَنَامُ وَلاَ يَسْهُو”. This is recommended (sunnah).
If you intentionally skip sujud sahwi, you’re not allowed to make up for it after concluding solah. But if you forget it and proceed to give salam, you have a second chance to do it. Make intention to reenter solah and to do sujud sahwi, and bend down for sujud. Conditions for this:
  1. The time passed since the 2nd salam is not too long.
  2. Behave as if you are back in solah. Give salam again after completing the sujud sahwi.
  3. If you do something that nullify solah during this time, the whole solah is considered null, and need to be redone completely.
Sunnah Arrangements Prior to Performing Solah
Among the preferred arrangements before performing solah are:
  1. Azan and iqamah.
  2. Find a place that has enclosure like a wall or a pillar. Or a place fenced off by anything 2/3 of hasta (elbow length) in height. If not, spread a sajdah (prayer mat) or draw a line around you to show the boundary.
  3. Make sure that the enclosure or the line length is no longer than 3 hasta from your heel towards the qiblah.
  4. If you mark the boundary with a single pillar, take care not to be directly behind it, but a bit to the right, or bit to left.
Makruh Elements During Solah
The makruh (disliked) doings in solah are numerous, among them:
  1. Do not turn the head right and left.
  2. Do not turn the face skywards. This could lead to many diversions by syaitan.
  3. Do not cover the mouth with a piece of cloth or any other article. But it’s encouraged to cover the mouth with hand when yawning. This is in conjunction with a hadith that encourages so to prevent syaitan from entering the body.
  4. Do not tie the hair in knot, except for women.
  5. Do not spit while performing solah. If you really need to, then spit towards the left or under your feet, then cover the spit with earth. If you pray inside a masjid, you’re not allowed to spit at all so as to preserve cleanliness. In a hadith, spitting inside a masjid is unlawful.
  6. Do not clutch your hands on sides of the hips. This is specifically prevented in a hadith. It is a symbol of boastfulness and aggression. People do this in Hell - when being relieved from torture.
  7. When doing ruku’ do not overly lower the head such that it’s not even with the back.
  8. Do not pray while holding back urge to go to the toilet or pass wind. If you need to go, then put off solah until you relieve yourself.
  9. Do not pray while there’s tempting food or drinks in front. There’s a hadith: “ There’s no (complete) solah in front of food.
  10. Do not pray inside the bathroom, near a cliff-edge, in the middle of a public road, sewage-disposal, or places of idol-worship.
  11. Do not pray inside animal herding places. Do not pray near a non-muslim cemetery. If praying on a grave that has been exhumed, make sure there is a spread between you and ground because the earth is considered unclean and would nullify the solah.
  12. Do not solah inside a Christian church, Jewish synagogue, or idolater’s temple.

Ustaz Zakaria added:

  • If you don’t state intention to do sujud sahwi before actually performing it, then your solah is batal.
  • In case you forget to do sujud sahwi, re-enter solah and perform sujud sahwi, but make sure:
    1. Duration from salam to the time you re-enter solah is not too long.
    2. Nothing that could have nullified solah occurred between the salam and point you re-enter solah.
    3. After re-enter solah and performed sujud sahwi, you give salam again twice.
    4. If something happens that nullifies a solah before giving first set and second set of salams, the whole solah is considered batal and need to be redone completely.

  • It is also encouraged to call out the Azan:
    1. On the right ear of newly born babies (just softly).
    2. When starting a long journey.
    3. When stopping over at isolated places that might be occupied by syaitan or jinns.
    4. On the ears of a person possessed by syaitan or jinns.
    5. To halt advance of fire.
    6. When confronting enemy troops.
    7. When about to bury a janazah (deceased). However ulama differed on this verdict (khilaf).
  • Do not read writings on tombstones. This would weaken your understanding in lessons. If you really need to identify a grave, a simple glance on the name should suffice.
  • Turn your palms upward during do’a (supplication) and you can raise them high, but keep your face downwards in humility.
  • Among generosity of Allah: you can get reward when yawning (if done in proper manner). You can even be rewarded for going to the toilet.
  • When yawning, cover your mouth with the right hand because mouth is a dignified place.
  • It is haram (disallowed) to desecrate a masjid with filth. Smoking in its vicinity is haram because it fouls the air.
  • Spread a cover before doing solah on the grounds of non-muslim cemetery and there’re signs that bodies have been dug up. The dug-up ground is considered najis (unclean) and you have to stay out of contact from it.
  • Wiping the face at the end of solah (after salam) is a good thing. The face is a noble place. Why dispute the legality of it?

Sifats Salbiyyah (RT 10/8/08)

Risalah Tauhid 10th August 2008

Sifats Salbiyyah
These are sifats or attributes that renounce what God is not. They establish superiority of God over everything else.

  1. Qidam (Uncreated) – denies the concept that God is new or created.
  2. Baqa (Everlasting) – denies concept that God will cease to exist.
  3. Mukhalafatu-lil-hawadith (Dissimilar to Anything New) – denies that God resembles any creation.
  4. Qiyamuhu-bi-Nafsih (Stands on His own) – denies that God ever rely on anything else or in need of a partner.
  5. Wahdaniah (Oneness) – denies that God is composed of many separate entities.

In classical Arabic, these attributes are not “maujud fi zihin”, and not “maujud fi khaarij”. In plain English, roughly means the attributes are not “comprehensible to our intelligence” and not “noticeable to the 5 senses”.

Sifats Salbiyyah are also called Sifats ‘Adamiyyah (traits that God is free of).

Said Ustaz Zakaria:

  • Oneness of God in each of His being, attribute, and action.

Wallahu a’lam.

Categories within 20 Sifats (RT 3/8/08)

Risalah Tauhid 3rd August 2008

Categorizing the 20 Sifats

The wajib attributes for God (Sifat 20) can be grouped together into 4:

Sifats Nafsiyyah – regarding God’s attributes in being. Also known as Sifats Tsabutiyyah (affirming God’s attributes).
Sifats Salbiyyah – regarding God’s distinct attributes. Also called Sifats ‘Adamiyyah (attributes that God is free of).
Sifats Ma’ani – regarding God’s attributes in capacity. Also called Sifats Wujudiyyah (what ability God has).
Sifats Ma’nawiyyah – as a follow-up to Sifats Ma’ani. Also called Sifats Haaliyyah (regarding the state or condition of God).

Sifats Nafsiyyah
Here we discuss attributes of Allah in being (zat), or attributes of Him regarding his existence. The only attribute under this category is Sifat Wujud. We simply state that God exists in being, not merely a name or results of imagination. He exists not due to “cause and effect” of some other event.
He exists even though we cannot see Him. In classical Arabic, God’s existence is “maujud fi zihin”, but not “maujud fi khaarij”. These translate roughly to: God’s existence is “comprehensible to our intelligence” but not “noticeable to the 5 senses”.

Said Ustaz Zakaria:

  • God exists in being, not just a result of metaphor, analogy, resemblance, or divine actions.

  • It will not make sense if we deny God’s existence (Sifat Nafsiyyah) but we accept God’s other attributes. Can we accept this:? “There’s a man in my neighborhood, he does not exist, but he’s 5 foot tall and dark-gray-skinned”.

  • We establish first that God exists, then we relate how He is like.

Wallahu a’lam.

Grounds For Sujud Sahwi (MM 10/8/08)

Munyatul Musolli 10th August 2008

Grounds For Sujud Sahwi (continued).

We said last week:

In other circumstances, you forget to sit for tasyahhud awwal, and rise to
qiyam. About midpoint (exactly at the border or past ruku’ position), you become
aware of the mistake and re-sit for tasyahhud. You should complete the
tasyahhud, and remember to do sujud sahwi later.

Likewise, in 2nd raka’at of Subuh (or witir during 2nd half Ramadan), you forget to recite Do’a Qunut, and proceed for sujud. Halfway down (exactly or past ruku’ position), you put in reverse gear and straighten up. You should complete the Qunut, and remember to do sujud sahwi later.

It is important to mention that all the above (reverse after ruku’s position and sujud sahwi later) are permissible only if you’re ignorant of the rules or if you in doubt of it. On the other hand, a learned person – after aware of missing tasyahhud/qunut- should proceed to the next position and patch up his mistake with sujud sahwi. If he reverse after passing the ruku’ position, his solah is nullified (batal).

The next cases relate to those who forget to do tasyahhud or qunut, but yet to move past the ruku’ position.

  1. You forget tasyahhud awal and raise, but before reaching the ruku’ position, you become aware and sit down and redo tasyahhud. The tasyahhud becomes valid, and you are not required to do sujud sahwi.
  2. You forget qunut and stoop for sujud, but before reaching the ruku’ position, you become aware and raise back and redo qunut. The qunut becomes valid, and you are not required to do sujud sahwi.
In contrast, if you forget tasyahhud and already completely standing, you’re not allowed to go back and sit for tasyahhud. Deliberately going back would make the solah batal. Likewise if you forget qunut and has completely started sujud, you’re not allowed to raise back for qunut. (A complete sujud means you have all feet, knees, hands, forehead on the floor).

The previously discussed situations on sujud sahwi of course meant for a person performing solah alone, or for an imam to a congregation (jama’ah). It does not apply for a follower (ma’mum).

Sunnah Ab’ad Situations For a Ma’mum.

A ma’mum has no choice but to follow actions of his imam at all times, except when the imam commits something that could nullify a solah. In this particular case:
Suppose the imam forgets his tasyahhud and has risen completely in standing (qiyam), then stoops back and sit for tasyahhud.
  1. If the ma’mum is already in the proper standing position, then he has to remain standing and wait until the imam finishes his tasyahhud.
  2. The ma’mum has not yet reached the standing position when he sees the imam bend down to redo tasyahhud. Here the ma’mum has to continue rising and stand completely waiting for the imam to finish his tasyahhud.

In the above cases (1 and 2), the ma’mum has to wait and only follow the imam’s subsequent actions (recite al-Fatihah and onwards).

Suppose the imam forgets his qunut and has sujud completely, then raises back and recite qunut.

  1. If the ma’mum is already in sujud position, then he has to remain sujud and wait.
  2. The ma’mum has not yet sujud when he sees the imam raise back. Here the ma’mum has to continue bending down and sujud completely and wait.

In the above cases, the ma’mum has to wait and only follow the imam’s subsequent actions (recite al-Fatihah and onwards).

The ma’mum has to ‘play a sport’ (husn dzon) and assume that the imam reversed his actions not deliberately. Remember that doing something illegal inadvertently or in overlook will not nullify solah.
In short, whenever an imam commits something in forgetful a ma’mum should not follow that action. This is regardless whether that action nullifies solah or not.

Ustaz Zakaria summarized:
You forget tasyahhud awwal:

  • You rise, but just before ruku’ position, reverse and re-sit for tasyahhud. You don’t need sujud sahwi later.
  • You rise, on or after ruku’ position, reverse and re-sit for tasyahhud. You need to do sujud sahwi later.
  • You rise completely, then re-sit for tasyahhud. Your solah is batal.

Ustaz Zakaria commented:

  • Knowledge has to come from lesson properly transmitted with sanad (chain of transmission). Teacher and student must know each other. This would ensure barakah (blessings).
  • Hadith: A major sin is forgiven with any of the following conditions: Recited al-Ikhlas 100,000 times; Performed a 1st-class pilgrimage (Haj-Mabrur); Martyred while fighting for Allah’s cause.
  • Building a masjid: Make intention (niat) - that this building is a masjid - only after construction completed, since its easier to preserve masjid-manners (adab) then. Any building could be upgraded into masjid upon the owner’s niat. A masjid can never be ‘downgraded’ to a lesser status.
  • Missed solahs must be made up (qodo). It’s like a debt to Allah that you must pay back.
    If our parents pass away and we know they missed solah some point during lifetime, it is recommended that we qodo on their behalf. We also could pay other people to qodo for them. Still, we could also pay fidyah to the poor (1 fard solah missed = 1 cupak of rice). This is qaul daif mazhab Syafi’I, and it is known that Imam as-Subki paid fidyah on behalf of his deceased mother.

Wallahu a’lam.

Sujud Sahwi (MM 3/8/08)

Munyatul Musolli 3rd August 2008

From Hassan Basri (rh), Nabi (saw) said that there are 3 benefits for those who perform solah:

  1. Virtues shower onto his head from the skies.

  2. Angels surround him from the feet up to the skies.

  3. The angels would say “If only he and the people with him knew what’s in store for them, surely they would never turn away from their solah”.
Sunnah Elements in Solah

In Arabic, we ‘safeguard’ and ‘construct’ a solah, instead of merely ‘performing’ it. To construct a complete solah, it is good manners (adab) to take care the sunnah elements also, not only the compulsory ones.
There are 2 kinds of sunnah: Hi’ah and Ab’ad. Both are voluntary elements, missing which (intentionally or not) would not nullify solah. However points lost by missing sunnah ab’ad should be recovered by performing extra set of prostration, called ‘sujud sahwi’.

Basis for Sujud Sahwi

There are 8 elements under Sunnah Ab’ad as we learned in previous sections (e.g Tasyahhud Awwal, Do’a Qunut). Regardless of how many sunnah ab’ad elements we miss or skip, we should patch them up only with one set of sujud sahwi.
Make it known that there are some activities that if we carry out on purpose would nullify a solah, yet if we do inadvertently, would not. Should you commit such mistake, it is proper to recover them by performing sujud sahwi as well. Examples of these activities include:
  1. Lengthening a ‘short’ rukun such as standing too long during i’tidal or sitting too long between sujuds.

  2. Talking or eating a little.

  3. Adding extra unit (rak’at) of solah being doubtful of the count.

  4. Misplacing ‘rukun qauli’ (compulsory recitation). This includes reciting the Fatihah during ruku’ or sujud, or reciting the tahiyyat when standing up.
If you are in doubt whether you have performed any of the 8 sunnah ab’ads, you are still encouraged to do sujud sahwi. If you are in doubt whether you have completed 3 or 4 raka’ats, then it is compulsory for you to assume 3, and add another 1. After that, you are encouraged to do sujud sahwi. Even if you become convinced on the number of raka’at just before giving salam, you still owe a set of sujud sahwi.

Say after sujud on 2nd raka’at you forget to sit for tasyahhud awwal, and rise to qiyam. About midpoint (exactly bordering or past ruku’ position), you become aware of the mistake and re-sit for tasyahhud. You should complete the tasyahhud, and remember to do sujud sahwi later.

Likewise, in 2nd raka’at of Subuh, you forget to recite do’a qunut, and proceed for sujud. Halfway down (exactly or past ruku’ position), you put in reverse gear and straighten up. You should complete the qunut, and remember to do sujud sahwi later.

Ustaz Zakaria explained:
  1. Hassan Basri (ra) narrated many hadith mursal.

  2. ‘Sahwi’ comes from Arabic ‘sahwun’ = forget. Sujud sahwi is performed twice before salam, with sitting in between.

  3. Both tasyahhud awwal and qunut must be accompanied by salawat upon Nabi (saw).

  4. Talking “a little” does not nullify a solah, as long as unintentional and no longer than 6 words.

  5. Talking intentionally with a word 2 letters long, or 1 letter with ‘maad’ will nullify solah. If you cough with equivalent of 2 letters or 1 letter with ‘maad’- even if to clear the throat - would nullify solah.

  6. Nibbling and swallowing food those stuck between your teeth is considered ‘eating’. You should be careful with this.

  7. 2 ‘short’ rukuns in solah: I’tidal should not be longer than time taken to recite Fatihah. Sitting between sujuds should not be longer than time taken to recite tahiyyat. If you deliberately stand or sit longer, your solah becomes invalid.

  8. Always assume positive with the person leading a congregation (imam). If you pray behind a Hanafi imam, and you don’t hear him starting Fatihah with “Bismillah…”, then convince yourself that he already recited it silently. For Hanafi mazhab, it is only sunnah to say “Bismillah…”, while for Syafi’i, it is compulsory. Once you start to doubt the imam, you are supposed to break away from him.
Wallahu a’lam.

Help Build A Madrasah

We're looking for material support to build a new madrasah. 'Darul Hijrah' will follow the traditional concept of Islamic learning and not linked to any political, subversive, or militant interests.

The site - in Rantau Panjang, Kelantan - has been approved by the state government and ready for land-clearing. One parcel (1.6 acres) has been donated by a local businessman as per wasiyyah of his late father. The local district office later generously extended another (adjoining) 2 acres.

If you'd like to invest for guaranteed returns in the aakhirah, let me know at:

DarulHijrah at hotmail dot com or visit

or even leave a comment on this blog.

References will be available upon request insyaAllah.

JazakAllahu khair.

Tahlil During Ramadan

The full time students at Pondok Batu 10 Cheras - about 30 of them - spend their Ramadan this year at Pondok Batu 10.

You can help them by donating for their upkeep. In return, they will do tahlil sessions and do'a for your family members who have passed away.

Download the Tahlil Ramadan Request form here: pdf in Malay OR pdf in English.

It is a long established tradition that Muslims have been doing sadaqah, do'a and istighfar on behalf of their dead relatives. If some people with strange ideas confront you saying "sending do'a to the dead is not allowed in Islam!",

here is proof they're wrong: pdf in Malay OR pdf in English.

Hadith #89-91, Abdullah Ibn Umar 17/5/08

Hadith lesson by Sheikh Mohd Nuruddin Marbu Al-Banjari Al-Makki at Masjid USJ9 Subang Jaya on 17/5/08 (Ahadith #89-91)

Compilation of Hadith as Narrated by 10 of the Sahabahs.
Narration of Sayyidina Abdullah ibn Umar (ra) (continued).

Hadith #89: Be Clothed At All Times.

عن إبن عمر - رضي الله عنهما - أن رسول الله (ص) قال: إياكم والتعرى، فإن معكم من لايفارقكم إلا عند الغاءط، وحين يفضِى الرجل إلى أهله، فاستحيوهم وأكرموهم.
(رواه الترمذي)

From Ibn Umar (ra):

Rasulullah (saw) said: Prevent from being unclothed (naked). Indeed angels are always with you except when you are at the toilet and when a man is in bed with his wife. So be shy with them and show respect to them.
(as narrated by Imam at-Tirmidzi rh).

Explained Sh. Nuruddin:
  • It is not haram to take shower unclothed, but disliked (makruh).
  • Angels (malaaikah) are always around us. There are special angels present during sessions in which we make remembrance of Allah (majlis zikir).

Hadith #90: Supplicate For Good Health .

عن إبن عمر - رضي الله عنهما - قال: قال رسول الله (ص): من فتح له منكم باب الدعاء، فتحت له أبواب الرحمة، وما سإِل الله شيأً يعطى أحب إليه من أن يسأل العافية.
وفي رواية: قال رسول الله (ص): إن لدعاء ينفع مما نزل ومما لم ينزل، فعليكم عبادالله بالدعاء
(رواه الترمذي)

From Ibn Umar (ra), he said:

Rasulullah (saw) said: Whoever is opened the door (opportunity) to do supplication (do’a), that means he is opened the doors of mercy. There is no request that Allah loves to fulfil more than a request for good health.

And in another narration:
Rasulullah (saw) said: Truly a do’a is always beneficial regardless it is fulfilled or not. Therefore o servants of Allah! Supplicate!

(as narrated by Imam at-Tirmidzi rh).

Explained Sh. Nuruddin:
  • When you are moved to do do’a, that means Allah has blessed you with mercy.
  • Supplicate for health = Ask protection from disease and disobedience.
  • Money in the hands of good people will be put to good use. Only one person paid for all the expenses when Habib Umar came to South East Asia.
  • Imam Abdullah at-Tustari once did supplication with one hand only, the other hand was in his pocket because of cold weather. He then heard a voice: “O Abdullah, we have forgiven the sins of that hand which is in your pocket”. From then on, Imam Abdullah always made sure he raise both hands when supplicating.

Hadith #91: Repent!

عن إبن عمر - رضي الله عنهما - قال: قال رسول الله (ص): توبوا إلى ربكم، فإني أتوب إليه في اليوم مأة مرة
وعن إبن عمر - رضي الله عنهما - عن النبي (ص) قال: إن الله يقبل توبة العبد مالم يغَرغِر
(رواه أحمد والترمذي و عبد بن حميد)

From Ibn Umar (ra):

Rasulullah (saw) said: Repent to your God. Really, everyday I repent to Him 100 times.

And again From Ibn Umar (ra):
Rasulullah (saw) said: It is a fact that Allah would accept repentance of His servant as long as he has not breathed his last.

(as narrated by Imams Ahmad, at-Tirmidzi, and Abdu bin Humaid rh).

Proof God Hears, Sees, Speaks ; Sifats Mustahil; Harus (RT 27/7/08)

Risalah Tauhid 27th July 2008

Proof God Hears, Sees, Speaks

Note: Sami'=Hear; Basar=See; Kalam=Speech

If God lacked any three of these attributes, then He could be deaf, blind, or mute. It is unfit that God was impaired; He then would be in need of a helper. Only creatures become impaired, a Creator never does.

Scriptural proofs for these attributes are the Quranic ayaat:

إِنِّي مَعَكُمَا أَسْمَعْ وَأَرَى
Indeed I am together with you two (O Musa and Harun), I hear and I see.
(Ta-Ha :46)

وَاللَّهُ بَصِيرٌبِمَا تَعْمَلُونَ

And Allah is all-seeing with whatever you do (al-Hujurat:18)

وَكَلَّمَ اللَّهُ مُوسَى تَكْلِيمَاً

Allah has spoken to Musa a complete speech.

Proof of God’s Sifats #14-20

These sifats, which in Arabic preceded with “Kaunuhu…” should be proven by the same arguments as for sifats ma’ani.

14. Kaunuhu Qadiran
God is powerful. While previously discussed "Al-Qudrah" described God's power, "Kaunuhu Qadiran" elaborates that the state of God is all-powerful. Proof is here and here.

15. Kaunuhu Muridan
God wishes. His wish and will have been described in "Al-Iradah". Proof is here and here.

16. Kaunuhu 'Aliman
God knows. His knowledge has been described in "Al-'Ilm". Proof is here and here.

17. Kaunuhu Hayyan
God is alive. Definition of his life has been described in "Al-Hayat". Proof is here and here.

18. Kaunuhu Sami'an
God hears and listens. His hearing has been described in "As-Sami'". Scroll up for proof.

19. Kaunuhu Basiran
God sees and looks. His vision has been described in "Al-Basor". Scroll up for proof.

20. Kaunuhu Mutakalliman
God speaks. His speech has been described in "Al-Kalam". Scroll up for proof.

Proof that God is Free from Sifats Mustahil
Sifats Mustahil for God are the opposites of the Sifats Wajib we mentioned since the beginning. There are innumerable Sifats Wajib, but all we need to know in detail number only 20. By supplying proofs for a Sifat Wajib, we implicitly refute the opposite Sifat Mustahil.

Proof that God Has Sifat Harus (Possible)
Existence of some object or essence (other that God itself) is always a possibility. And it is God’s prerogative to make that object into being or not.
Allah has said in the Quran:

وَاللَّهُ خَلَقَكُمْ وَمَا تَعْمَلُونَ

Allah the Most High made you and your actions into being.

Ustaz Zakaria said:

  • Among the signs that your knowledge has blessings from Allah – your works for the sake of Islam is made successful.
  • Never make fun or clown around with knowledge, or with people of knowledge. It is our responsibilty to preserve the blessings they carried.
  • Allah’s speech is unlike ours. He speaks without voice, His sentence is without beginning or ending.
  • Whatever our actions and outcome, the fact is that Allah made them.
  • Ulamas of old always paired together sifats wajib and mustahil when writing books on Tauhid. They drew the line for us so we know which point not to cross.

Wallahu a'lam
