Brief History of Mecca

Brief History of Mecca.
The Ka’aba, The House Of Allah In the province of Hejaz in the western part of Arabia, not far from the Red Sea, there lies the town of Makka. In the center of this town there is a small square building made of stones, about 60 feet long, 60 feet wide and 60 feet high. Since time immemorial this town and this stone built house has been known to world travelers. This is Baitullah, the House of Allah. Its sanctity and antiquity is older than history itself.
Tradition goes that the Kaaba was ordained by Allah to be built in the shape of the House in Heaven called Baitul Ma’amoor. Allah in his infinite Mercy ordained a similar place on earth and Prophet Adam was the first to build this place.
The Bible, in the Chapter of Genesis describes its building when God ordained Abraham to erect a Shrine for worship when Abraham was ordered to go to the Southern desert with his wife Hagera and infant son Ismael.
The Old Testament describes this building as the Shrine of God at se…

What is Khula | Information in details

What is Khula
Khula (annulment of marriage) is in fact divorce on demand for separation by the wife by offering some money or foregoing her monetary rights. For Khula, the consent and agreement of both the husband and the wife is necessary. If the wife wants a Khula, she can offer money to the husband and demand it from the husband, but there is no Khula without the husband's consent. Taking Khula without the knowledge of the husband has no meaning in it. Thus, a wife cannot go the Qazi and take Khula without the husband's knowledge. As given in Tabyeen Ul Haqaaiq, Babul Khula, Vol. 3, Pg.  No.  189.
When the husband consents to give the Khula, then it is affected. In this case, a Talaaq-e-Baain (an irrevocable divorce) is carried out between the wife and husband, as given in Fatawa A'alamgiri, Vol. 1, Pg. No. 488.
If they want to reunite out of their own free will, then within Iddah (the mandatory waiting period) or after it, they can remarry with a new Mehr (alimony) before…

Saying 'Talaq' without the Intention of Divorce

The ruling in the light of the Hadith is that if any person says the word, "Talaq," then the intention is not considered, as the word "Talaq" is used only for separation between the couple. It has got no other usage and sense. Thus, if the husband used the word "Talaq," without any intention, even then divorce occurs.  As given in Sunan Abu Dawood, Vol. 1, Pg. No.  298, Hadith No: 1875: Translation of Hadith:  It has been narrated on the authority of Hadhrat Abu Hurairah (May Allah be well pleased with him) that the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) said:  There are 3 things in which seriousness is also seriousness and joking is also seriousness: Nikah (Marriage), Talaq, Raja'at (i.e. Uniting after the first revocable divorce). As given in Durre Mukhtaar, Vol. 2, Pg. No. 465.

Can women give divorce?

In the Shariah, the right to divorce has been given to the man and not to the woman because in the married life, the husband is responsible for all the economic and other such affairs and the responsibility of the wife to obey her husband. As long they are bound by marriage, it is necessary for the husband to provide maintenance to the wife and take care of her housing and other affairs. In all these matters, the husband has to perform the duties and is responsible for them. The wife can stay in the house and benefit from what the husband provides. She is free of responsibilities. For this reason, it is justice to give the husband the right to end the relationship and refuse the responsibilities. Allah Ta'ala says about the husband:
Translation: ……. in his hands is the knot of the marriage.
Apart from this, the woman is easily overwhelmed by anger and other emotions. In her menses, the woman suffers from restlessness and anxiety. The decision-taking ability of a woman is less than t…

The Shariah Ruling Regarding Pronouncing 3 Divorces Simultaneously

Pronouncing 3 divorces simultaneously is certainly against the teachings of the Holy Quran and the Hadith and is a sin. When a divorce is pronounced without considering the move carefully, the partners will face many more difficulties. Therefore, the method of pronouncing 3 divorces simultaneously should not be used and awareness about this should be created among Muslim men, so that this method which is against the Shariah should not be resorted to and this sinful course of action is blocked. In spite of all this, if someone pronounces a triple talaq, it is effective.
Sunan Abu Dawood, Book of Divorce Pg. No.306 has a Tradition:
It has been narrated on the authority of Hadhrat Sahl bin Sa’ad (May Allah be well pleased with him), that he when he was asked about the incident of Hadhrat Uwaimir Ajlani (May Allah be well pleased with him) he replied that he pronounced Triple Talaq to his wife before the Holy Prophet Peace be upon him and the Holy Prophet Peace be upon him declared it as ef…

Pronouncing 3 Talaq In A State Of Anger

About pronouncing divorce in a state of anger, Radd Ul Muhtaar Vol. 2 Pg. No. 463 has described 3 states of anger. Out of those 3 states, in 2 states, divorce (Talaaq) will be considered as effective and in 1 state it is not.
1.  A state of (mild) anger in which the person's has not lost his reason. I.e. he knows and understands whatever he is saying and also understands the effect of his words and actions - A divorce pronounced in this state is effective.
2.  Very high, almost maniacal, anger in which the person has lost his reason, I.e. he does not know or understand whatever he is saying or doing nor does he understand the effects of his words or actions - A divorce pronounced in this state is not effective. His other dealings like buying, selling etc are also not considered as proper.
3.  A state of anger which is high but the person has not yet lost his reason, i.e. The person still understands his words and actions and also understands the effects of these words and actions - A…

Detailed Rules of Divorce

It is given in Surah Baqarah:
Divorce is (revocable) two times (only). Then either retain (the wife) with honor (in marital relationship) or release her with kindness. And it is not lawful for you to take back anything of that which you have given them, unless both fear that (now by maintaining marital ties) they may not be able to observe the limits set by Allah. So if you fear that both will be unable to keep within Allah’s limits, then (in that case) there shall be no sin upon either of them if the wife (herself) may give up something as recompense to free herself (from this distressing bond). These are the limits (set) by Allah. So, do not exceed them. And those who exceed the limits prescribed by Allah, it is they who are the wrongdoers.
Then if he divorces (for the third time), she will not be lawful for him until she marries some husband other than him. But if he (the latter) also divorces her, in such case there shall be no sin on both of them (the former husband and the wife) i…

Shariah Rules about Divorce and Separation

3 Ways of Reconciliation
If, for some reason the relations between the husband and wife become strained and the wife continues her disobedience then the husband is advised to follow these methods
1. First, the husband should advise the wife. 2 If it does not work, then the husband should separate the wife's bed i.e. the husband should stop having sexual intercourse with the wife.
3. The husband should admonish them and beat them lightly. Allah Ta'ala says in the Holy Quran, Surah an Nisa -34, "And for those women about whom you have the fear of disloyalty, admonish them, sleep separately from them and may give them a light beating.”
Before pronouncing divorce, the husband should use all these methods for reconciliation and should carefully consider the after-effects of the divorce. But according the Islamic Law, it is not Obligatory (Fardh) for the husband to use these methods. The presence of the wife is not obligatory be present, nor is it necessary to inform the wife eithe…

Top 5 Misconceptions or Common Misunderstanding About Islam

Image
Islam has one of the largest groups of devout followers among the major religions of the world. However, it is one of the most misunderstood of all religions as well. Its concepts have been twisted around by self-proclaimed “Jihadi terrorists”, who are only using the religion to fulfill their own evil objectives to rule the world. However, what they preach is not the teachings of the Holy Book of Islam, the Quran. What they preach is their own beliefs in the name of religion.
While there are many misunderstandings that people have about Islam, here are five of the most common misconceptions that the Western world has about this religion.


#1 – The Meaning of Jihad | Islam Spread by Sword/Force:
The Meaning of Jihad:

The word “jihad” is the most misconstrued words about Islam and is often used as proof that Islam promotes violence. This is, however, not at all true. Islam does not advocate the killing of innocents, even if they are non-Muslims. People who are using this word to promote vio…
