Translated by Abdulilah Lahmami
It has been authentically reported that the Messenger (sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) used to give glad tiding to the companions with the coming of the month of Ramadaan. He used tell them that it is a month whereby the doors of mercy and paradise are opened. Likewise, the doors of the hell-fire closed and devils chained. The Prophet (sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) said, ‘’When the first night of Ramadaan, the doors of paradise are opened and no doors from it are closed. The doors of hell-fire are closed and no door from it opened and the devils are chained. A callers calls ‘O one seeking good come forward (to do good), O one seeking evil withhold’.

Menses & Fasting 

Authentic Knowledge from Quran & Sunnah

Menses & Fasting – Shaykh ibn Uthaymeen


It is unlawful for a menstruating woman to perform all types of fasting: obligatory or optional.
It is, however, obligatory to make up for the missed obligatory days of fasting as explained by ‘Aisha (رضي الله عنها):
“We passed through this (period of menstruation), and we were ordered to complete (i.e., compensate) the fasts but we were not ordered to complete the prayers” (agreed upon Hadeeth) [34].
If the woman encounters menses while fasting then her fasting is negated even if her blood flow occurs a moment before sunset. If this day is one of the prescribed days of fasting then she must make up for this day once she becomes clean.

The Excellence of Observing Saum (Fasts) during Ramadan

1215 (RUS-Ch217)

Allah, the Exalted, says:

O you who believe! the fasting is prescribed for you as it was prescribed for those before you, that you may become Al-Muttaqun (the pious). (Fasting) for a fixed number of days, but if any of you is ill or on a journey, the same number (should be made up) from other days.

Conditions of Jihad : Apply what you have learned

Islamic Bedtime Stories

Assalamo ‘aleykum.

As I was growing up, the chart of irregular verbs at the back of the English books always said “to learn – learnt – learnt” but apparently now “learned” is more common (verbs have a tendency to “regularise” themselves over time, it is a normal process of language change. How interesting is that?).

Anyway, I put together a little sheet to check that the main points of Jihad and its conditions have been understood, as part of the introduction to the workbook Battles of the Prophet. Alhamdulillah.

It looks obvious to me, but just to be very very clear on where I stand, the answers are: NO, YES, NO.

May Allah accept our efforts this Ramadan.
