May Allah (SWT) grant us and all the Marhoomeen Forgiveness and Jannatul Firdaus (Aameen)



By Naseerah Nanabhai

Radio Islam conducted a panel discussion on the topic of Youth: Personal Development in a Broad Sense. Brothers Muhammed Saley and Muhammed Coovadia were interviewed on the topic. They are both students of Jamia and are founders of the Ummah Squad. The Ummah Squad is a platform that creates short videos on important Islamic topics.

We have always been told by teachers, parents and the elderly to ‘become something with our lives’, Moulana stated. This is personal development, improving yourself. It does not include wealth and personal possessions as this does not make you a better person. “But how do we measure personal development? What contributes to personal development?” Moulana asked.

Question: Over the years I have been reciting the Noble Quraan without really making Sajdah Tilawah. How do I make amends?

Answer: Make an estimation on how many Sajdah Tilawahs you have outstanding. This can be calculated by considering the average amount of Quraan you have been accustomed to reading.

Once you have reached a figure, write it in your Islamic Will and make a bequest that if you pass away, Fidya should be paid for it. Now begin by making Sajdah Tilawah in what ever free time you have.

The procedure is as follows: In the state of Wudhu, facing the Qiblah, from either a standing or sitting position, a person says: 'Allahu Akbar' (without raising the hands) and goes down into Sajdah. In Sajdah the person will read 'Subhaana Rabbiyal A'ala' three times. Then he will raise from Sajdah saying; 'Allahu Akbar'. The Sajdah Tilawah will be complete. (There is no Salaam.) Several Sajdah Tilawah can be made one after the other.

Sajdatut Tilawat is prohibited whilst the sun is rising, precisely at noon, and from the time the colour of the sun changes before sunset until the sun has fully set.

The Fidya amount for each Sajdah Tilawah which was not observed by a deceased is the same is the Fidya of missed Salaah and Fast. [The current amount is R22]

And Allah Knows Best

My friend Jim told me that when he asked his wife where she wanted to go on vacation, she said that being married to him was a vacation.

When I commented that that was a really nice thing to say to him, Jim replied, "Well, actually, what she said was I was the 'last resort.'"
