Asked Country: South Korea
Title: Waswasa in Salaah
Question

I get very bad thoughts during prayers too .. I cannot even write them . How to get rid from these waswasa 's . As they disturbs me so much. Plz Telme. Sometimes i think i must have committed some huge sin becoz of these thoughts. How I can avoid those thoughts. They make my prayer so difficult.
Answer

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

The solution is simple. Simply ignore all thoughts. Do not pay attention to the thoughts. Do not even worry to expel the thoughts. Shaytan wants to distract you and consume your mind in such thoughts. Do not get caught up with the trick of Shaytan. When you are on a highway filled with smoke that obscures the road, you will not worry to remove the smoke. You will focus on the road and drive through the smoke. You will pay attention on the road and not at the smoke. The waswasa’s is like the smoke. Ignore the waswasa’s and work through them even though your work might feel obscured.

Title: Hadith on combining two prayers without an excuse
Question

Assalamu Alaikum

I am writing to ask about the hadith:

"Ibn Abbas (radiallahu Anho) narrates that he heard the prophet (saw) saying:

"a person who combines two salaats without any strong excuse reaches one of the doors of kabaair (major sins)"

I would like to know if this hadith is strong or weak and which hadith book it is found in?
Answer

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

The Hadith in reference is narrated in Sunan al-Tirmidhi. The Arabic text is reproduced below:

عَنْ ابْنِ عَبَّاسٍ، عَنِ النَّبِيِّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ: «مَنْ جَمَعَ بَيْنَ الصَّلَاتَيْنِ مِنْ غَيْرِ عُذْرٍ فَقَدْ أَتَى بَابًا مِنْ أَبْوَابِ الكَبَائِرِ (سنن الترمذي، باب ما جاء في الجمع بين الصلاتين)

Ibn Abaas Radhiyallahu Anhu narrates that Nabi Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam said, “Whosoever combines two prayers without an excuse, has reached a door from the doors of Kabaair (major sins) (Sunan al-Tirmidhi)

Despite the chain of this particular narration being weak, there are various proofs from Quran and Hadith that support this Hadith. Consider the following authentic narration that appears in the Muwatta of Imam Mohammad[1]:


عَنْ عُمَرَ بْنَ الْخَطَّابِ , أَنَّهُ «كَتَبَ فِي الآفَاقِ، يَنْهَاهُمْ أَنْ يَجْمَعُوا بَيْنَ الصَّلاتَيْنِ، وَيُخْبِرُهُمْ أَنَّ الْجَمْعَ بَيْنَ الصَّلاتَيْنِ فِي وَقْتٍ وَاحِدٍ كَبِيرَةٌ مِنَ الْكَبَائِرِ (موطاء امام محمد، ج 1، ص 82، المكتبة العلمية)

Umar Radhiyallah Anhu wrote to the distants areas preventing them from combining two prayers and informing them that combining two prayers in one time is from among the major sins. (Muwatta Imam Mohammad)

After narrating the Hadith, Imam Tirmidhi states that the scholars of Deen practice upon this Hadith. [2]

Title: The Hadith mentions that there will be 12 rulers before the day of Judgment. What are the names of these 12 rulers?
Question

Salam, in sahee bukhari is written that : Volume 9, Book 89, Number 329: Narrated Jabir bin Samura: I heard the Prophet saying, "There will be twelve Muslim rulers (who will rule all the Islamic world)." He then said a sentence which I did not hear. My father said, "All of them (those rulers) will be from Quraish." Who are these 12 rulers ?

Answer

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

The Hadith is:

عَنْ عَبْدِ المَلِكِ، سَمِعْتُ جَابِرَ بْنَ سَمُرَةَ، قَالَ: سَمِعْتُ النَّبِيَّ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ، يَقُولُ: «يَكُونُ اثْنَا عَشَرَ أَمِيرًا» ، فَقَالَ كَلِمَةً لَمْ أَسْمَعْهَا، فَقَالَ أَبِي: إِنَّهُ قَالَ: «كُلُّهُمْ مِنْ قُرَيْشٍ» [1]

Abdul Malik narrates that he heard Jabir Ibn Samurah Radiallahu Anhu report that he said: I heard the Prophet Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam saying “There will be 12 rulers (which will receive Khilafah).” He further explained something which I was unable to hear. My father stated (that the Prophet Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam mentioned) “All of them (the 12 rulers) will be from amongst the Quraish.”

The Hadith in reference is general. Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam did not specify who the twelve Imams will be. Therefore, there are different opinions among the Muhadditheen as can be gauged from the provided reference. However, most of the commentators seem to agree that the four Khulafah Rashideen (Abu Bakr, Umar, Uthman, and Ali Radiallahu Anhum) are amongst the 12 rulers. [2]
