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

and Madrâs and

and Madrâs and Haydarâbâd were printed in Istanbul, Turkey, in 1396 [1976 A.D.]. Thousands of world-famous profound Ottoman Islamic savants and Shaikh-ul-islâms ‘rahima-humullâhu ta’âlâ searched for ways of helping people to understand the khutbas they were listening to. Failing to find any clue to the permissibity of addition of Turkish versions to khutbas, they did not give permission for them. The purpose of enlightening the (Muslims making up the) jamâ’at was achieved by establishing Friday preaches in all mosques after Friday namâzes and people in mosques were informed about the contents of fatwâs for six hundred years, and thereby periphery of Islamic practices was protected against violation.] ’Iyd prayer, (i.e. namâz which is performed in the morning on the first day of each one the two ’Iyds,) has nine (takbîrs that are called) Takbîrs of Zewâid: One of them is farz. Another one is sunnat. Seven of them are wâjib. The takbîr-i-iftitâh is farz. The takbîr for the first rukû’ is sunnat. The takbîrs of zewâid are wâjib. Takbîr of rukû’ in the second rak’at is wâjib on account of its coinciding with another takbîr that is wâjib; (in other words, it is at the same time the last one of the seven takbîrs of zewâid, which are wâjib.) TO PERFORM NAMÂZ It is written as follows in Ni’met-i-islâm: It is farz for every discreet and pubescent Muslim to perform namâz five times daily. Nobody can perform namâz on behalf of any other person. A person may gift the thawâb for a namâz or any other act of worship that they performed to another person [alive or dead alike. Each and every one of them, (i.e. people to whom the thawâb of the worship performed has been donated,) shall be given the same amount of thawâb as that which has been earned by the donator; and no amount of thawâb shall be deducted from the donator.] It is not permissible to perform namâz and donate the thawâb thereby earned to your adversary or creditor so that they will waive their rights violated. A person who believes that (the daily five prayers of) namâz is farz and yet does not perform it without any ’udhr, will not become a disbeliever. They will become (a) fâsiq (Muslim). [It is stated (in authentic Islamic sources) that punishment for a single omitted namâz is Hell fire for seventy thousand years.] (A person who ceases from performing his daily namâzes) will be sent to prison and will be kept there until he – 170 –

egins to perform his namâzes again. When a child is seven years old, it will be commanded (by its parents) to perform namâz. If it still does not perform namâz at the age of ten, it will be beaten with hand. It should not be patted more than three times. It should not be thwacked with a cane, either. Thwacking with a cane is a punishment applicable to an adult guilty of homicide, and then it requires a court decision. A man cannot beat his wife with a cane [It is not permissible to hit any living being on the head or in the face or on the chest or front or abdomen.] It is farz also for an invalid to perform namâz to the best of their ability and energy. (The fourth fascicle of Endless Bliss mostly deals with namâz.) BEING WITH AN ’UDHR If something exuding from one’s body is continuous, it is called an ’udhr, (and a person experiencing this inevitable emission is said to be one with an ’udhr.) A person suffering from continuous enuresis or diorrhea or anal gas incontinence, nasal bleeding or bleeding from a sore, etc., ichor (from a wound or ulcer), tears shed as a result of swollen or sore eye, and a woman suffering from istihâda (menorrhagia) are called people with an ’udhr. They have to eliminate the cause of the ’udhr by using methods such as clogging, medication, and performing namâz sitting or making signs. [A man with urinary incontinence inserts a natural cotton wick as big as a grain of barley into his urinary canal. If synthetic cotton is used, its fibers may penetrate the kidneys and cause infection. During urination, the wick is naturally ejected out. In case an excessive amount of urine gushes out from the bladder, the excess will flow through the wick and leak out, causing the person’s ablution to break. The urine leaking out should not dirty the underpants, which can be prevented by wrapping a piece of cloth around the urinary organ and it can be made fast with a piece of thread sewn to a corner of the cloth and fastened to the underpants with a safety pin. If the urine leaking is still too much, some cotton may be put in the cloth. If the loop at the end of the thread is difficult to detach from the safety pin, a paper clip may be attached to the safety pin and the loop may be hanged on it. It will be easier to detach the loop from it so that that the cloth can be washed three times at the handbasin. A person with urinary incontinence should carry three to five pieces of cloth in his pocket. To prepare a piece of cloth with thread, one corner of a piece of cloth with dimensions (12x15) cm. is twisted and a 50 cm. – 171 –
