Why do men pray at the mosque on Fridays?

Friday, for Muslims, is a holiday. All Islamic countries (at least the Middle Eastern ones) take Friday off. Every Friday there is a Jumaa. The Imam gives a Khutba and anyone who attends it from the beginning is attending salat duhr. After the Khutba, they pray 2 rakaas for the duhr.Also, the Prophet pbuh prayed at the mosque on Fridays. Truthfully, a man should be praying all his prayers at the Masjid. That is including the Fajr.

Is smoking allowed in roza?

Your roza can only be invalid if food or drinks pass through your esophagus. Therefore using toothpaste is allowed as long as doesn't pass your esophagus. In smoking however, the smoke does pass your esophagus and therefore makes your roza invalid. A huge part of Islam is resistance, which means you have to try to get to as close to perfection as possible even though you'll never be perfect. In the pursuit of perfection, try leave these bad habits.

Sorry! The statement "Your roza can only be invalid if food or drinks pass through your esophagus." is not the whole truth. Allah Almighty doesn't want to keep us hungry for nothing. The purpose of Fasting (Roza) is attaining 'Piety' - Taqwa. Taqwa doesn't mean keeping hungry. It is a kind of restraint on our feelings and emotions. There are many sinful activities which make Raza invalid.

Answer 2

All of the Ulama(scholars)Of Islam Agree that the Fast/Roza breaks when smoking.The non learnerd do not have the right to make up their own rulings.

Who were the first Azan?

He is a Bilal, a slave freed by Prophet Muhammad

In Madina Munawara Hazrat Ibn-i-Maktoom ( RU), a blind companion of the Holy Prophet (May peace and blessings of Allah Almighty be upon him) was also a Moazzan.

Note: It is requested that the names of holy Prophets and Companions of the Holy Prophet (May peace and blessings of Allah Almighty be upon him) should be shown respect and they should be followed by (AS), and (RU) respectively.

We, the Muslims, do believe in all the Prophets. We respect and love them all. For me Hazrat Christ (May Peace of Almighty be upon him), Hazrat Musa-Moses (May peace be upon him) ... all deserve reverence of the highest degree. They were the chosen ones, sent by God for the guidance of mankind.

The Difference Between

What is the difference between tawheed and shirk?

Okay first of all how can you compare two totally different subjects. Shirk is when you are no longer a Muslim and you don't believe in anything that they believe and tawheed is basically the study of the Quran and Allah s.w.t. in Islam.

mt ---> shirk means ascribing partners with God. Disbelieving in HIS ONENESS.

We must know Who Allah is and how we should believe in Him.

In a reply to the question posed by the Non-believers of Makka (Mecca), Allah Almighty revealed a Sura Ikhlas (112) in the Qur'an telling the people Who the Creator is: Translation from Arabic language:

"Say (O Prophet): He is Allah, the One and Only, Allah is Eternal and Absolute, He begets none, nor is He begotten, and there is No One like Him." The in-detail study of the holy Qur'an reveals to us the facts about Him. He is the Sole Creator, Sustainer, Provider, and Ruler of all the worlds He has created. He has No Son, No Off-spring, No Parents, No Associate whatsoever. He enjoys Absolute Authority over all creatures. He is Most Merciful, Oft-Forgiving, All-Knowing, All Listening, Omni-Present, Omni-Potent. He shall never forgive a person who associates anybody else with Him in His Absolute Authority.

ShirK means that you know that there is a Supreme Being Who has created universe. But along with that Supreme Being (Allah-God) some one attributes the powers to others-Idols, priests, holy men etc.- which only Allah Almighty enjoys. That is associating Partners, Son, or somebody else to Almighty Allah. If somebody prays to, begs from, takes somebody his beneficient, or thinks him to be capable of doing harm without the Wish of Almighty Allah, he commits Shirk.

Why do some people avoid religion?

The underlying reason many people avoid religion is that they understand that there is no god and therefore believe that religion is irrelevant in their lives.

Some who believe there is no God or gods are willing to engage in religious discussion, while others consciously avoid religion altogether. This can be because they know that discussion of religion can lead to heated arguments, as each side takes a more extreme stance, and the best way to avoid this is to decline to talk about religion. Others feel that whenever they talk about religion they will be pushed to believe the religious arguments, and only the most patient atheist can tolerate the unrelenting pressure to conform to religious norms.


You will find apologetic claims that atheists are self-obsessed hedonists who do not want bothersome rules or who have not troubled themselves to find out the "truth". These claims can be somewhat insulting and of course some people will avoid religion to avoid being insulted.

What is Islam's five basic tenets?

The 'Five Pillars' or Tenets of Islam are the foundation of Muslim life:

  • Faith or belief in the Oneness of God and the finality of the prophethood of Muhammad;
  • Establishment of the daily prayers;
  • Concern for and almsgiving to the needy;
  • Self-purification through fasting; and
  • The pilgrimage to Makkah for those who are able.

These pillars are further elaborated as under:

Five Pillars of Islam:

1. Shahadat: [testimony that there is no god except Allah (God) the One and Only One, having No Partner whatsoever. And Muhammad is His servant and Messenger],

2. Salah: (praying five times a day)

3. Zakah: (specific compulsory charity-2,5% of annual savings)

4. Saum: (fasting during Ramadan)

5. Hajj: (pilgrimage) for each Muslim once in lifetime those who can afford .

The major beliefs on which the Muslim traditions are based are:

Eemaan Mujmal: Translation: I believe in Almighty Allah, as are His beautiful Names and Attributes, I accept all His Commands, I declare from my tongue, and testify by my heart.

Eeman Mufassal: Translation: I believe in Almighty Allah. The Angels, all heavenly Books, all Prophets, in the Day of Judgment, and this that Good or Bad Destiny is from Him, and that there will be life after death and then No death (Eternal life in heaven or hell).

1. Belief in Almighty Allah (God): God- Allah is ONE Allah. There is no god but He. He and He alone deserves worship. He is All-Knowing, All-Seeing. All power lies in His Hands. He will punish the sinners and reward the Good. He is Eternal, Unique, and incorporeal. There is nothing like Him.

2. Belief in Angels Created by Almighty God- Allah Karim from light. They are obedient to Allah Karim. Carry out His commands. The Jews and Christians also believe in the Angels.

3. The Muslims believe in all heavenly books, including Tora, Zaboor, the Bible, the last one being the Qur'an. .

4. The Muslims believe in all the Messengers (Prophets May peace be upon them all) of Almighty Allah- No distinction among them. Hazrat Muhammad (SAW) being the last Prophet of Islam. NO Prophet after him.

5. The Muslims believe in the life after death, resurrection and the Day of Judgment. Almighty Allah Karim is the Sole Ruler/Master of that Day. He enjoys the absolute authority to send people to Heaven or Hell. .

6. The Muslims believe that good and bad Destiny being in the Hands of Almighty Allah. No One can change his destiny.

7. Life hereafter: All the dead will be raised again and judged according to their good or bad deeds. There will be no death to them.

8. Hell and Heaven (Paradise)

9. The Muslims believe that Nobody can take the responsibility of some other person's deeds.

10. All the power of decision making is in the Hands of Almighty Allah, and none else.

Rukun Iman - "The Pillars Of Faith in Islam" The Pillars of faith Iman in Islam are distinguished from the pillars of religion because they focus on the system of belief rather than merely ritual worship. They are also affected by Islamic law but guided mostly by somewhat esoteric truths of Islam. Of course a person cannot have complete faith without submission to the law. The "Pillars" or the truths upon which the Islamic faith is premised are:

  • To believe in Allah (SWT) (God) in His Existence, His right to be worshipped, His Oneness, His Attributes, and His right to legislate
  • To believe in God's angels
  • To believe in the Holy Qur'an and the other Holy Books, (Torah, the Gospel of Jesus, the Psalms of David)
  • To believe in God's Messengers, of whom Adam was the first and the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) was the last
  • To believe in the Resurrection and the Day of Judgment
  • To believe in Divine Preordainment
Many scholars have written various explanations of these pillars. This list of the Pillars of Faith is accepted as basic to belief in Islam by every sect and school of thought.

What is the name of an Islamic Bible?

Quran

The Qur'ān, Qur'an, Koran, or Al-Qur'an.

The Noble Qur'an however is not the Muslim Bible.

Muslims are required to review the same bible that the Jews, Christians, and Sabians use.

The Qur'an comes from the Arabic iqra' meaning "to read or recite" and is a series of poems inspired by Allah the Arabic term for "The God" used by Arabs of other faiths as well.

It is a guide book for Muslims to take on examples like the prophets of the past into their daily lives. The Quran as well contains certain practices to keep the believer in God pure and as a blessing rather than a negative aspect of the world.

i believe that it is the Qur'an

Muslims believe that the real bible is no more existed

Muslims have no bible they have only Quran to which they read in Arabic and translate i there language ie urdu English etc.

How did Muhammad start Islam?

An Updated AnswerProphet Muhammad didn't start Islam. Prophet Muhammad is God Messenger and his prophet to call for Islam. Islam in its universal sense is an Arabic word that means peace and means submission. It is peace between one and himself/herself through belief in the one and only one God. It is also submission to the one and only one God which leads to peace. Islam in this sense is God mission since the start of universe creation. It was the faith and religion since the universe creation date.

Islam per Torah revelation by God to prophet Moses is called Judaism. Islam per the Bible revelation by God (same God) to prophet Jesus is called Christianity. Islam per Quran revelation by God (same God) to prophet Muhammad is called the same name Islam. All God prophets since Adam; through Noah, Abraham, Ismael, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, Moses, ..., Jesus, and Muhammad (peace be upon them all) call for Islam or ; in another words, call for submission to God as the one and only one God with no partner, no son, no companion, no associate, and no equivalence.

Quran revelation by God to prophet Muhammad started in year 610 AD through the Angel Gabriel (Jibril) when the prophet was in mount cave Hira in Mecca (or Makkah) in the nowadays Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Quran revelation to prophet Muhammad continued until year 632 AD (year of prophet death).

Answer BFirstly Muhammad (pbuh) did not start Islam.This is a major misconception. MUslims don't believe he's our god. He's after all only human, the last messenger to be sent down to the Muslims. Allah made Adam to carry out the message of one god,so he was the first one to spread the message. If you're saying 'started Islam' you're hinting it's fabricated, that perhaps a human started it. No, Allah is responsible for what he asks. Allah sent a prophet to every nation to warn them away from their bad deeds. We believe he also sent Jesus as a Messanger( not a GOd)!!to warn the people. However Muhammad did help to spread Islam to a wide part of the world. the MUslims became very strong under his leadership and conquered many people. They even reached as far as Spain and if you go their today you will see ruins of Islamic architecture. Answer CAs per history, Islam began in Mecca, Saudi Arabia when God revealed the Qur'an to the prophet of Islam but....... the Muslim's perspective is completely different, as per Muslim, Islam and quran....Adam, Abraham, Noah, moses, Jesus ( Adam, Ibrahaim, Nuh, moosa,Isa in Arabic respectively) are messengers of Allah and came with the same message of montheism and message of one god and being creator of universe.

As per Muslim ,Islam and Quran ... the Islam is absolute religion which exists from the day one of the mankind and Adam (peace be upon him) was the first prophet/messenger of Allah ....and the last being Muhammad (peace be upon him) ......

The following verses from Quran proves the point ....

And He(Allah) taught Adam the names of all things; then He placed them before the angels, and said: "Tell me the names of these if ye are right."

( Quran,Al-Baqara, Chapter #2, Verse #31)

Allah did choose Adam and Noah, the family of Abraham, and the family of 'Imran above all people,-

( Quran,Aal-e-Imran, Chapter #3, Verse #33)

We(Allah) have sent thee inspiration, as We sent it to Noah and the Messengers after him: we sent inspiration to Abraham, Isma'il, Isaac, Jacob and the Tribes, to Jesus, Job, Jonah, Aaron, and Solomon, and to David We gave the Psalms.

( Quran,An-Nisa, Chapter #4, Verse #163)

And remember We(Allah) took from the prophets their covenant: As (We did) from thee: from Noah, Abraham, Moses, and Jesus the son of Mary: We took from them a solemn covenant:

( Quran,Al-Ahzab, Chapter #33, Verse #7)

We(Allah) gave Moses the Book and followed him up with a succession of apostles; We gave Jesus the son of Mary Clear (Signs) and strengthened him with the holy spirit. Is it that whenever there comes to you an apostle with what ye yourselves desire not, ye are puffed up with pride?- Some ye called impostors, and others ye slay!

( Quran , Al-Baqara, Chapter #2, Verse #87)

When was Islam formed?

There is only one religion from the beginning of this world and that is ISLAM.

Islam is there from the creation Of Adam(AS).

The answer above is incorrect, the asker is asking when Islam was formed. The ideals of Islam date back to the creation of Adam, but was not present at the time. It's like saying evolution was theorized back when the first protists were formed, but that concept has only come around recently. Second, what does it even mean that ISLAM (?) haw been around since the creation of the world, that's not even a legitimate statement, Islam is not a noun, its not a thing, Islam is a concept like Christianity. On top of that your answer is not even valid, you state that it has been around since the beginning, but then you state the creation of Adam, who was made after the creation of the Earth.

Answer: Islam became an actual Religion around the end of the 5th century, not the creation of the Earth, that makes no sense.

Is man's status higher than women in Islam?

No, both man & woman's status is same in Islam. Womans have all the rights that a man has. except of some parts in which man's status is higher than woman & in some parts woman's status is higher than a man. It is what because man and woman are not physically and biologically same. So we can say man and woman are same in Islam.

I would like to say in ISLAM even women also has got rights, but some limits are imposed to her.
