48– To

48– To sway from side to side during namâz. 49– To kill lice and the like that do not bite. 50– To smell something during namâz. 51– To perform namâz bare-headed. Hadjis perform it bareheaded as they wear the Ihrâm. (Please scan the seventh chapter of the fifth fascicle of Endless Bliss for ‘Ihrâm’. 52– To start performing namâz with arms exposed. 53– To start performing namâz bare-footed. (According to one qawl, it is makrûh for a woman to perform namâz bare-footed. According to another qawl, it nullifies her namâz.) It is written in the four hundred and thirty-ninth page of Ibni ’Âbidîn that when you enter a mosque it is makrûh to leave your shoes, etc. somewhere behind you. It is written in the final part of Berîqa that it is sunnat to put them somewhere on your left, instead of somewhere before you or on your right. It is written in Terghîb-us-salât that it is makrûh to say prayers, such as prayers called ‘evrâd’, between the farz and the sunnat parts of namâz. NULLIFIERS of NAMÂZ: In the Hanafî Madhhab, some fifty-five nullifiers have been stated, which will make your namâz null and void, regardless of whether they have been done wittingly or inadvertently: 1– To utter something worldly. 2– To laugh as loudly as it will be heard by the laugher him or herself. 3– To do something that can be said to be an ’amal-i-kethîr. 4– To skip one of the farzes (of namâz) without an ’udhr to do so. 5– To skip one of the farzes involuntarily. 6– To cry loudly for something worldly. 7– To clear your throat or to cough without an ’udhr. 8– To chew gum. 9– To relieve an itch on one of your limbs three times with one hand, or to raise your hands and clap them, within one rukn. 10– To shake hands (with someone). 11– Not to say the takbîr of iftitâh as loudly as you can hear it. 12– Not to say (the sûras and prayers in namâz) as loudly as you – 132 –

can hear them. 13– To say, “Lâ hawla walâ quwwata il-lâ billâh-il-’aliy-yil ’adhîm,” or “Subhânallah,” or “Lâ ilâha il-l-Allah,” when someone calls you. Your namâz will not become fâsid (null and void) if your purpose is to let them know that you are performing namâz. However, it will nullify your namâz if it has been intended to answer that person. 14– To intentionally acknowledge a greeting. (Please see the sixty-second chapter of the third fascicle of Endless Bliss.) 15– To taste something sugary in your mouth, and for its juice to seep down your throat. 16– As you perform namâz outdoors, to open your mouth toward the sky, and for rain or hail or the like to pour down your throat. 17– To pull on the halter of the animal (you are riding) three times. 18– To raise your hand three times or to kill lice, fleas or the like by pressing them. 19– To pull out three hairs within one rukn. 20– To pronounce a word o of three phonemic sounds such as damn, puff, etc. 21– When performing namâz on horseback in a manner agreeable with Islam, to spur three times with one foot. 22– To spur once with both feet. 23– (When performing namâz in jamâ’at), to stand ahead of the imâm. 24– To walk a distance between two lines without an ’udhr, (i.e. something which compels you to do so and which Islam accepts as a good reason.) 25– To comb your hair or beard. 26– For a man and a woman to perform namâz side by side in the same line behind an imâm – in a namâz in jamâ’at which the imâm is conducting with the intention of being imâm for (a congregation of) men and women. (It is permissible if theiy are not in the same line or side by side or if there is a curtain between them. It is harâm for women and young girls to go out without properly covering their heads or arms, i.e. with any of their awrat parts exposed, whatsoever the purpose, going to a mosque or else. Acts of worship that they perform this wise will earn them – 133 –
