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



And He, Allah is The One and Only, orchestrating the perfect order and function of the world!

How do you feel now as you stand before Him, praising Him and speaking to Him? How do you feel now being answered by Him with every verse? Do you still have it in you to defy some of His commands? Can you imagine yourself ever daring to commit another wrong against such Majesty and Might? Against such Omnipotence and such Sovereignty? How about against such *Love*? How much love must He have for us to select us out, given our insignificance in the canvas of His creation, for this beautiful exchange and these beautiful terms of endearment that are in Salah?

After all, He has blessed us with the ability to answer the call to prayer and stand before Him. That’s an honour unlike any other! How can we not give of our best that which is due Our Majesty?

Can we ever turn our backs on prayer again knowing we are missing out on such a privilege!?

The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) tries to help us understand the Grandeur before which we stand... He says: “The foot of Allah’s Throne (Al Kursi) extends over the heavens and the earth…” (see 2:255). “…and, the seven heavens in comparison to Allah’s Kursi, is like a small ring cast in the spans of the desert! And The Kursi, in comparison to the Throne itself, is a measure like it!” (Sharh al-‘Aqeedah al-Tahhaawiyyah, p. 312, 313).

So, the next time you stand for prayer, view yourself from above and far away, so you can truly taste the meanings behind “Rabbil Aalameen” (The Lord of the worlds!)

Giving A House as A Gift

Question: A father in his lifetime says to his son in the presence of others: “I am giving you this house as a gift”. The father continues to live in the house, maintains the house and pays the rates and taxes. The house remains on the name of the father. The father then passes away. Now, the son is claiming that the house belongs to him and should not be part of the estate. Is his claim valid?

Answer: In the light of Sharee’ah, giving / donating of a gift to someone is such a transaction that has several conditions that must be established, and then only will it be valid.

تنعقد الهبة بالايجاب والقبول وتتم بالقبض الكامل (شرح المجلة ج١ص٤٦٢

The conditions are:
1- The person giving the gift should offer the item as a gift;
2- The person to whom the gift is offered should accept it and;
3- He should also take physical possession of the gifted item.

In the above situation, the 3rd condition was not found. i.e. the son did not take possession of the house in the father’s lifetime. Hence, the transaction of gifting was not completed. The house will be part of the Marhoom father’s estate and will be divided among the heirs.

And Allah Ta’ala Knows Best
Mufti Yusuf Moosagie

A woman was letting her husband have it with just a touch more venom than usual, saying, 'You're an idiot. You have always been an idiot. You'll always be an idiot. If they had an idiot contest, you'd come in second.'

'Why would I come in second?' asked the husband.

'Because you're an idiot!
