Miftah-ul-Janna (Booklet for way to Paradise)

sinfulness, rather than thawâb, [i.e. rewards in the Hereafter.]) 27– To solve the difficulty of an imâm other than your own imâm, (i.e. to help an imâm who is conducting namâz in another jamâ’at and who falters as he recites the prescribed âyats.) 28– Supposing a woman stands at an unoccupied place and starts to follow the imâm and thereafter other men arrive and the new lines of jamâ’at they have made spread out so as to cover the place where she is performing the (same) namâz; the namâz of three men, one of them (immediately) on her right, the second one on her left, and the third one behind her, will become fâsid (nullified). 29– To hug one’s child. 30– To eat or drink something. 31– To swallow something as big as a chickpea and which has remained between your teeth. 32– To bring both ends of your collar together with your both hands, or to take off your headgear with one hand or to take it off and put it on again. 33– To say, “Innâ lillâh wa innâ ilaihi râji’ûn,” upon hearing some sad news. 34– To say, “Al-hamd-u-lillâh,” upon hearing some good news. 35– According to a qawl, to sneeze and thereupon say, “Alhamd-u-lillâh.” 36– To say, “Yerhamukallah,” to a person who sneezes near you. 37– To say, “Yehdîkumullah,” upon another person’s sneezing. 38– For a man to come and kiss the woman performing namâz. 39– When saying prayers during namâz, to ask for something worldly, such and gold and silver. 40– To turn your chest away from the (direction of) Qibla. There are two ways for finding the direction of Qibla. 1– By way of the angle of Qibla. 2– By way of the hour of Qibla. 1– If a straight line is drawn between a city and Mekka on a map, that line is (the direction of Qibla from that city and is called) line of Qibla. Its difference from south is the angle of Qibla. 2– Any person who turns towards the sun at the time of Qibla written as the hour of Qibla (or time of Qibla) on a calendar will have turned to the direction of Qibla. Kadûsî provides the following explanation in his annotation (to Rub’–i-dâira): “When the cursor of the rub’-i- – 134 –

dâira set (for the date) is moved to the arc of Qibla, the complement of the angle indicated by the (string called) khayt on the arc of altitude is the Fadl-i-dâir (H) of Istanbul’s time of Qibla.” When a time machine (clock) is held with its face towards the sky and its hour hand pointing towards the sun, the bisector of the angle between the hour hand and the number twelve points to the south.

[Ibni ’Âbidîn ‘rahimahullâhu ta’âlâ’ states as follows as he embarks on his discourse on the sunnats of namâz: “A namâz performed following someone outside of namâz will not be sahîh. It is makrûh for the imâm or the muazzin to raise their voice louder than for the jamâ’at to hear them. As the imâm and the muazzin – 135 –
