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


What to refrain from...

O.K., so what exactly must we be extra cautious of? Well, the sins that we commit are of many types; minor, major, hidden, open, intentional, and unintentional. A few of these are those that are committed with the tongue.

Do not allow constant backbiting and slandering to spoil your fast. Remember, today it may appear harmless speaking ill about so and so and slandering so and so for they do not know what you are saying. However, a day will come when everything will be revealed, and those very people will demand compensation for our doings in the court of the Almighty Allah Ta’ala.

Money and words on the final day will count for nothing- it is our good deeds that people will take from us instead!

Simply follow the rule given in the following Hadith and it will help immensely In-sha Allah! “If anyone abuses him (the fasting person) then he should say ‘I am fasting.’” (Bukhari & Muslim)

Using A Drip While Fasting

Question: Does the use of a drip break the fast?

Answer: The usage of drip does not invalidate the fast, as the content of the drip does not enter the stomach or brain.

The ABC Song

Customer: "Hey, can you help me find this book?" Me: "Sure."

(He holds up a piece of paper with the title and author of a book on it. I find it on the shelves and hand it to him.)

Customer: "Thanks! How'd you do that so fast?"

Me: "Well, I've worked here awhile, and the books are all in alphabetical order by author's name."

Customer: "What do you mean?"

Me: "Alphabetical order. Like the alphabet song? You know, A's before B's?"
(He looked confused, but then widened his eyes.)

Customer: "The letters actually go in that order? I thought that song was just to remember them all!"
