  1. I would like to see an article written about do’s and donts’ of nikkah ceremony in the modern world according to the injuctions of the Qur’an and Sunnah.

    Jazakumullah Khaeran….

  2. Assalamualaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh

    I’m also interested in something I have-never heard of before. Or if I did, never understood it.

    Also, I’d like more articles explaining Quran and Hadith. Subhan Allah, they are the best this site has to offer.

    I want an explanation on this:

    Imam Ahmad recorded that Khuraym bin Fatik Al-Asadi said, “The Messenger of Allah prayed As-Subh (Al-Fajr), and when he had finished, he stood up and said:

    «عَدَلَتْ شَهَادَةُ الزُّورِ الْإِشْرَاكَ بِاللهِ عَزَّ وَجَل»

    (Bearing false witness is on a par with the association of others with Allah.) Then he recited this Ayah:

    ﴿فَاجْتَنِبُواْ الرِّجْسَ مِنَ الاٌّوْثَـنِ وَاجْتَنِبُواْ قَوْلَ الزُّورِحُنَفَآءَ للَّهِ غَيْرَ مُشْرِكِينَ بِهِ﴾

    (So shun the Rijs of the idols, and shun lying speech. Hunafa’ Lillah, not associating partners unto Him)

    I can hardly get an explanation for a lot of Quran or sunnah these days except by scavenging tafsir websites. Too much focus on fiqh. SubhanAllah, fiqh is part of our deen but not everything.

    The article “The Line in the Sand” is what it is called(I think) was good Alhamdulilah because I actually learned what ilah means and how there are so many types of shirk.

    I liked articles like the article on Haya. The articles by Maryam E and Sadaf Farooqi. The article Judge me! The article on the basmallah. The articles by Nouman Ali Khan I would read if only I could see the Arabic script(has that been fixed?) His article on hamd and shukr. Man, so much of what this site has to offer is no where near as popular as it should be.

    All that good stuff Alhamdulilah.

    Yasir Qadhi’s explanation of Surah Yusuf. Alhamdulilah.

  3. The Messenger of Allah said, “The people most beloved to Allah are those who are most beneficial to the people”
    http://www.dailyhadithonline.com/2013/01/22/hadith-on-virtues-the-most-beloved-to-allah-are-the-most-beneficial-to-the-people/

    I think nowadays, maybe you feel pressured to do this and that. Explain American Muslims to the non-Muslim population, how we don’t support suicide bombing or killing innocent men, and women and children, etc.

    Just focus on your akhirah and when it comes to us Muslims, how much you can benefit us. I think your tafsir and your articles like the one on the basmalah are the most beneficial thing you have to offer.

    As for how we are going to deal with Islamophobia which I feel has preoccupied you, don’t worry so much. Allah is our maula and nobody else has a protector. Sometimes, there isn’t a way to solve a problem except be patient and pray. This excessive focus of yours has caused you to make the biggest of your public errors. It’s not good, it seems like you are being pushed in this and that corner by non-Muslims. Just stick to the essentials and remember akhirah more.

    Oh yeah. I’d like more stuff from Yasir Qadhi and Muslim Matters. On-the most important, and most neglected thing of all these days. The akhirah(did I mention that?), what we must do to prepare for the inevitable meeting with Allah azza wa jal. More articles on Jannah and Jahannam and the Last Day, and the qabr, and death, and the worthlessness of this dunya, and on trials that we are about to face, and trials future Muslims will soon face, etc. All of the stuff addressed by Allah and His Messenger.

      • “If one does not have any Islamic training he / she must go to a scholar “.

        well, if a muslim person can make money legally though he has not educated at all , if a muslim person is so keen on knowing the name of the artist who wrote a particular poem / song, if a muslim person can differentiate what is healthy food and non healthy food, it is very much compulsory to that person to learn about Islam. If he is not then, its only ignorance.

        Brother Yasir Qadhi,

        Which Madhab did our beloved prophet (peace be upon him) followed?
        Which Madhab did prophet’s companies followed?

        We have got Quran and Sunnah and why we need to refere to a scholar for Islamic training or follow any madhab which that scholar follows ?

  6. Assalam-o-Alaikum. I am too lazy to pick up tafseer and do research on my own. So want Sh Yasir Qadhi to explain any significance of “aqsa”. Through out the quran in many stories someone coming from aqsa (far side) of city to do something. Like a guy coming from far side of city to warn Mosa PBUH. In Surah Yasin someone coming from far side of city to tell people to believe in the messenger.

    My question is, why was it important to mention that the guy is from far side of city.

  10. Assalam Alaikum,

    I would love to have Sheikh Yasir Qadhi share with us his thoughts, using his well-needed academic approach, on the important issue of Islamic finance. All I could find on this website was the following comment he made a year ago (http://muslimmatters.org/2012/03/26/halal-mortgages-misuse-of-taqi-usmani-fatwa-and-other-important-questions/). There, he says that 1) “Islamic” finance contracts resemble resemble ‘hiyal’ (‘tricks’), and 2) taking mortgage loans on the basis of necessity makes more sense.

    Being an economist by training, I have always felt the same way as Sheikh Yasir on these issues. I am personally fairly disillusioned with the state of Islamic finance, which for the large majority boils down to 1) the use of fancy Arabic terminology, and 2) the repackaging of financial instruments. But the unfortunate consensus that seems to be emerging is that such “Islamic” contracts are permissible. I see this as a very dangerous slope, given how harshly Allah speaks of Riba in the Quran. In the past, some Muslims were getting mortgage loans, being at least aware of the sin being committed. But we are now converging to a world where a large number of Muslims take out “Islamic” mortages/loans/etc., not even acknowledging the impermissibility of their actions.

    The only dissenting voice I have heard on the topic is Professor Mahmoud El Gamal from Rice University. But unfortunately, I feel a lot of the things he says are not making their way to the general Muslim population. I am not quite sure what the reason is, but I believe it has a lot to do with the fact that 1) Prof El Gamal is an economist, not a formally trained scholar of Islam, and 2) People would rather hear that something is halal than haram.

    Lastly, I do understand that Sheikh Yasir is not an expert on the topic of Islamic finance, and so might shy away from writing such an article. If this is of any help, I would be lend him my economist’s hands if that can help ease the task of writing.

    Thanks in advance,
    wasalam

      I agree with you. I usually go to Islam QA because they provide me evidence with Quran and Sunnah.

      However if I followed on opinion and I found out that Allah and Rasullulah decreed something different, I would abandon the scholars opinion and follow that.

  13. Assalamualaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh,

    I would like to know how to tell your Muslim friends and colleagues that you cannot be in a relationship. If there are your friends they would understand, but with colleagues, especially very materialist and “zina-driven” mates at the office. I know girls keep teasing and asking me stuff, what can I say…staying celibate for the sake of God is rather difficult!?!

    • I meant non-Muslim…but I guess with some secular-libearlist…it would go for Muslim friends as well (I am using the word friend very loosely)

      Thumb up 0 Thumb down 0

    • Who says staying celibate is difficult? It becomes easier when you do it for Allah. And If staying celibate is difficult for you then get married.
      It is just you have given into your materialistic desires and you can’t take responsibility of your wife(and kids later). You need Imaan and you can stay away from zina. I am not sure how a non-muslim does it. he has no faith in Allah. He doesn’t see life as a Muslim does. He doesn’t see marriage beyond bed. For a Muslim marriage is more than sexual pleasures.

      Convincing a Non-Muslim or A “Broad-Minded” Muslim is hardest part. I would worry more about Muslims.

      You can just do your job and adivice them in private. Rest should be left to Allah. And Pray for them.

      Allah knows best.

    Please do cover the topic of love and hatred for the sake of Allah. It’s really confusing. Some people out there gone to extreme say we shouldn’t befriend nonmuslims, we should be harsh to them etc etc. But others (and this is what Qur’an said) that we only put hatred to those who are hostile to us because of religions. Can’t believe many fanatics twisted this thing to justify their abusive manners to other muslims, and non-muslims as well. Please clarify this. Jazakallah khair

    I want you to write something on Synthetic life. Biologists claim to give life just through chemical testing. They say that this disproves the need for soul or God. While the Qur’an clearly says that you cannot give life to anything.

    • Science can not give life to anything. They might use living cells(again from Allah’s creation) and grow them.

      The day science creates something out of NOTHING they should claim that God is not needed.
      BTW, I think Trees don’t have soul. Correct me if I am wrong. You don’t need soul to be alive.

      They can’t even create Non-Living(without taking and transforming things that are already created by Allah) things let alone creating living ones.

    Assalamualykum. Please write some thing about the problem we Muslim men living in Europe face if we want to get married. I’m 26, I live in Munich and I’m trying to get married, but it’s very difficult to approach and find any Muslima.

    First I am so confused whether my approach to any Muslima would be seen respectfully or she will be afraid. Secondly, in Munich not all Muslimas speak English and I’m still too new here to learn German.

    Thirdly, I did meet an Arab girl when I was in Sweden who spoke very good English and Swedish and I speak both as well, and I wanted to approach for marriage, but she completely denied me mainly because I’m not Arab. So, I’m disappointed at this type of attitude because after all I am Muslim and in Islam there’s no barrier in terms of any race.

    Moreover, I’m not looking for a pretty Muslima rather I’m looking for an intelligent, calm and jolly personality who will be compatible with my impulsive character, but I found out that Muslimas are picky on the height of the Muslima man when they try to chose a husband and this is a big issue for me because I’m just 5’4″. Is my height my fault? Why would my height be an issue?

    I did think about trying to get married in Bangladesh, my homeland, but even there also Muslimas want to marry in a very lavish expensive manner with very rich guys, I’m not that rich and I’m never going spend lavishly for marriage and I believe in giving Mahr and keeping things simple as Ali(Radiallah Ta’aala Aanhu) suggested. On top of that, I’m wary of Bangladeshi Muslima because they worry too much about wealth and money rather than other philosophical aspects of life. My teenage life was destroyed by mom’s overprotective attitude and all my dreams to become a professional soccer player or cricketer or Chess player got ruined in the process. She just forced me study and study and study because I need to be an Engineer. Well, I did become one, and now doing M.Sc in a Top university of Europe, but I do go through depression for my lost teenage life. So, I’ve lost faith in the Muslimas of Bangladesh, that’s why I thought about getting married in a foreign land, but it seems all Muslimas are very difficult to be convinced.

    So what we Muslim men should do? Should we try to become Asexual? It seems we as a Muslim nation made our life so difficult for ourselves that now that’s only way we have got.

    • Well, I can understand what you mean. I am living in a state where I haven’t met/seen a Muslim girl since I arrived here about 7 years ago. I am not dying to get married. But I pray to Allah for a righteous wife everyday. And I have been praying since I was about 18. Allah has plans for me I am sure. And He has plans for you too. Just wait for the right time.

  24. The interaction between male/female non mahrams in muslim communities. How far do you go and where do u draw the line?.. Mixed seminars, dinners etc…how does one conduct themselves, specially when u find yourself being quiet comfortable interacting with members of the opp sex outside your community , yet all the haya is reserved for fellow muslims. How does one solve this? How do we bring up children to respect these rules if their interactions within the American community at large is quiet different? Essentially, how do u bridge this gap for all of us?

    I would like an honourable shaikh to talk about how Muslims should approach conspiracy theories. As for myself, I believe that they should be irrelevant to our aims, and if an act of violence is perpertrated, we should focus on granting justice to the victims, not harangue about if the violence was CIA or Mossad backed. But my friends around me seem to be centered on conspiracy theories: Illuminati, Freemasons, Jewish Media, Anti-Islam League, Defame Islam league, CIA, etc.

    Please provide a clarification on this issue. Thank you.

  26. Assalamu aliakum. An important issue that needs addressing is the matter of rising unemployment. Although unemployment is by no means an excuse for sinning and choosing haram, it certainly does’t help when muslims are not even willing to help one another out for a job. We are living in an era where muslims who are in positions of wealth and power, are opting to employ the Kaffir, to build there businesses, empires, organizations by such people. And I apply this to Islamic colleges, education facilities who also operate in this manner. How is this justified? Surely it is not that difficult to train, educate a muslim brother or sister, if that is their concern? What ever happened to racing to do good deeds to earn the blessings and pleasure of Allah? What ever happened to the generosity, and giving heart as the sahabi’s had? They too were very wealthy, and yet did not stoop to un-islamic means, such as marginalizing and rejecting a muslim, for fear of losing wealth, profit or popularity among mainstream society. Do they not know that their wealth, prosperity, careers were also given to them by Allah? That Allah can take that away as HE chooses? HOW ARE WE TO BUILD A STRONG, UNIFIED UMMAH – ONE OF QUALITY, SINCERITY, WHEN MUSLIMS ARE REJECTING ONE ANOTHER IN PREFERENCE FOR THE KAFFIRS?

    Dear Br. Yasir Qadhi :

    I read in the Glories Quran:

    “It is He Who has sent His Noble Messenger with guidance and the religion of truth, in order that He may make it prevail over all other religions, even if the polytheists get annoyed.” (61:09)

    In the light of Quran and Sunnah, what are the possible steps an individual can take to restore the glory of Islam as it was during the period of Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) and Rightly Guided Caliphs (RA) ?

    Furthermore, is restoration of Caliphate is the solution to bring out the Ummah from the current misery? If yes then what are the possible steps one can take in this regard?

    Please throw some light on this subject.

  34. Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullah,

    The masjid in our community has been having administration problems for quite a few years now (around 6-7 years) and so there has not been a proper curriculum or classes set for the youth in our area. We have dozens of families (almost 200 children!) all within our community who should be finding beneficial classes in our masjid, but rather go to masajid miles and miles away in the hopes of helping their children gain knowledge.

    In all my time I’ve been at this masjid, since before the administration problems, I’ve seen children come and go. I try to do as much as I can; I hold classes at the masjid feesabeelillah, and alhamdulilah we have gathered a group of 15-20 kids who are more or less frequent. Because of staffing issues, however, there is not much time for me to teach the children anything other than recitation of the Qur’an. I would love to hold other classes such as Arabic, Aqa’id, Tafseer, and more, but the problem lies in lack of knowledge on my part. I cannot teach these subjects because I am yet to delve into them myself, and also, I do not know of any way to set up a curriculum that would give us enough time to teach children these things.

    Ya Ustaadh, please write an article on how to set up the administration in a masjid, and how important it is that there be a curriculum in place that benefits all those who come to learn. How do we find staff? What is the criteria to follow to hire this staff? How do you train them? How do you set up a classroom?

  37. Assalamualaikum Warahmatulahi

    Sheikh, it has been almost a year now since you gave your view on evolution and you have posted and given a good long three talks which I have found on YouTube explaining your view. A view I agree with absolutely (Except for one issue bothering me).

    Recently, there is an interpretation occurring among the youth, that although Adam (AS) was a man who was 60 Cubits tall and he is the Father of Mankind and he was created by Allah in a miraculous way, so far so good, all of that is from the Quran and Hadiths and widely accepted by majority if not everyone. So nothing thought-provoking at all over this.

    It is what happens after that. The interpretation of the youth is that Adam is the “Father of present day Mankind” , from the quotation marks I hope you know where I’m going with this, the interpretation is that, could evolution occur after the miraculous creation of Adam (AS) and Hawwa?

    What I mean by this question is as follows:
    1) With the concept of Speciation, could some of the children of Adam (AS) and Hawwa and there children’s children be geographically isolated then produce offspring after many millions of years that were then unable to mate with another set of offspring somewhere else around the globe, explaining why there are two different species of “Man” and then when Allah addresses Mankind in the Quran as “Nas”, “Man” or “Insaan” really being used as an umbrella term branching out all the man-like species that came from Adam (AS) and Hawwa and whether this is a good lead to reconcile why there are other humanoid creatures being dug up, and I know you have stated your view that it could be that Allah created A, then B and C and Man was something else that fitted in with the ecosystem, but could this example of Speciation explain that even though they are the offspring of Adam (AS) could there be other kind of versions of “Man” or just deformed Humans or not coming from Adam?

    2) Also, I have found Hadiths about the night when Muhammed (SAW) went to Jannah and saw many prophets including Adam (AS), Ibrahim (AS), Eesah (AS) and Musa (AS) and there are Hadiths describing the appearance of Adam (AS) as 60 Cubits tall that’s all I can find out about him, there is some good description of Ibrahim (AS), Eesah (AS) and Musa (AS) from Sahih Bukhari Hadiths, By the way, when I say Hadiths, I have only used Sahih Bukhari Hadiths for this matter. It describes their hairstyle and skin colour and build. And from the information there, it is painting a picture that from Ibrahim (AS) generation that our kind of “Humans or Man” was finalised. Also the footprint of Ibrahim (AS) in Makkah seems to show he was Gigantic to modern day Humans and his feet looks like ours but just bigger! But also from the Hadiths it states that Ibrahim (AS) looks very similar to Muhammed (SAW) so I think Ibrahim (AS) was our kind of Human and so was Adam (AS), but could Adam and Hawwa produce offspring that evolved into different species whilst our Human Species was maintained to continue blood line of the prophets and was always there until now, but other man-like species to have existed around millions of years before that?

    That is the interpretation I would like you to assess, and also, it is not one I see going far but if Adam and Hawwa produced offspring that continued to shrink in size till Muhammed (SAW) generation and Adam was just a giant Human being and looked exactly the same as another Human but just far bigger. Then I will feel calm and less worried about this issue because people I work with think that another species can come from Adam and Hawwa just like that and still be considered by Allah as man and also, I don’t see it being possible but please share some thoughts on evolution after the miraculous creation of Adam and how him being 60 Cubits tall doesn’t mean he was any different from any other Human till our time and the only difference being that he was bigger and through variation and ONLY VARIATION we just became smaller. But, it could mean there was evolution and therefore some man-like species being dug up around the world came from Adam (I hope not), this is the troubling thoughts I am having but I am far more inclined to accepting that we just shrunk in size and that is all, but tell me what you think about this view of another species of Man coming from Adam and Hawwa and if it is viable through Theology.

    I really hope I made sense and you manage to read my LONG question, I will appreciate it in ways you cannot imagine if you just read this and thought about an answer for this, let alone give a response but I wish you do respond to this cos it is a thought that is troubling me and I hope you can share some light on issue.

    Thank you very much and I hope you don’t get an eyestrain from reading this and if you do, I’m sorry. :)

    Thanks for reading

    • Btw in the part where I start the paragraph of with “2) Also, I have found Hadiths about the night…..” At the end of that paragraph the question is meant to say at the end “But other Man-like species to have co-existed at the same time of our kind of human being?”

      And again Sheikh Thanks for reading

  39. Please do a talk about the Maqam of Prophet Ibrahim (AS), And is that his actual footprint and if so, I really want to know what size he was and the how that footprint was preserved? Because the verse in Surah Aal-’Imran verse 97: “In it are manifest signs (for example), the Maqam (place) of Ibrahim (Abraham); whosoever enters it, he attains security. And Hajj (pilgrimage to Makkah) to the House (Ka’bah) is a duty that mankind owes to Allah, those who can afford the expenses (for one’s conveyance, provision and residence); and whoever disbelieves [i.e. denies Hajj (pilgrimage to Makkah), then he is a disbeliever of Allah], then Allah stands not in need of any of the ‘Alamin (mankind and jinns).”

  41. Sister Heartbroken

    As-salaam Alaikum,
    my son has told me he wants to leave islam. He has told me that he saids he is an Atheist. I was so shocked because he has just become a Hafiz. Being aware of the consequences of an apostate, I became overcome with grief and complete agony as to what I should do as a responsible Muslim.
    I found that he is not alone in this new movement. Through Anti-Islamic movement that has become intellectualized, and has been filtered into the Muslim world by some reknown writers like Ricard Darwkins and the likes. Please help me. I am not sure how I should approach this situation anymore.There is a new internet group called arab atheist, also formermuslim.com, and ex-muslim.com…They are all very disturbing people who has raised the same issue my son has raised.

  47. Assalamu alaikum sheikh. Although my parents are job holders and it will be difficult for them to pay rent and other bills if – Allah forbid – sth happens to their job. While I was in university, I told them about dropping out and do something else as I figured out university isn’t for me. They are very strict on my university degree and even paid my tuition (which is very expensive). Now, I am graduating soon and having finding a job. Now, I have to chip on my shoulder as to what should I do? How should I repay them? They are quite old and I really want to take over all financial matters so that they can retire and do as they please. If sheikh can write an article or even make a video covering this topic, it will be much appreciated. Jazakallah khayr
