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

as much thawâb as she

as much thawâb as she earned when she performed her best namâz. It is stated as follows in the book entitled Jawhara-t-unneyyira: [1] “A woman should let her husband know that her haid has started. When her husband asks, it will be a grave sin for her not to tell him. She will be gravely sinful also if she says that her haid is over if her purity is still continuing. Our Prophet ‘sall- Allâhu ’alaihi wa sallam’ stated: ‘A woman who conceals the beginning and the end of her haid from her husband is an accursed one.’ It is harâm to have anal intercourse with one’s wife, during her menstrual period or as she is clean. It is a grave sin.” A person who commits this sin with his wife is an accursed one. Pederasty is an even worse sin. It is called livâta, and is said to be a habîth (extremely dirty) act in Anbiyâ Sûra. As is stated in the commentary to Birgivî, our Prophet ‘sall-Allâhu ’alaihi wa sallam’ said: ‘If you catch two people practising pederasty like people of Lot in the act, kill both of them!’ Accoding to some Islamic scholars, both of them must be burned. Both the partners become junub after this abominable act. Having an enema will not make one junub, although it will break one’s fast (Feyziyya). If a woman observes that her haid is beginning within the time of a namâz that she has not performed yet, she will not have to make qadâ of the namâz of that namâz. [Please read the fourth chapter of the fourth fascicle of Endless Bliss!] CONCERNING THE ABLUTION An ablution has four farzes (or fards) in the Hanafî Madhhab, seven farzes in the Mâlikî Madhhab, and six farzes in the Shâfi’î and Hanbalî Madhhabs. In the Hanafî Madhhab, they are: 1– To wash one’s face. 2– To wash one’s forearms, including the elbows. 3– To make masah on one-fourth of one’s head. [1] Abridged version of the three-volumed book entitled Sirâj-ulwahhâj, which Abû Bakr bin ’Alî Haddâd-i-Yemenî ‘rahmatullâhi ta’âlâ ’alaih’ (d. 800 [1397 A.D.]) wrote as a commentary to Mukhtasar-i-Qudûrî, which had been written by Abul-Huseyn Ahmad bin Muhammad Baghdâdî ‘rahmatullâhi ta’âlâ ’alaih’ (362 [973 A.D.] – 428 [1037], Baghdâd). – 92 –

4– To wash one’s fect, including to heel bones. There are four kinds of ablution: One of its kinds is farz, the second kind is wâjib, the third kind is sunnat, and the fourth kind is mandûb. There are four instances of an ablution that is farz: To make an ablution in order to hold the Qur’ân al-kerîm or to perform one of the daily five prayers called namâz or to perform a namâz of janâza –explained in detail in the fifteenth chapter of the fifth fascicle of Endless Bliss– or to make a sajda of tilâwat –explained in the sixteenth chapter of the fourth fascicle of Endless Bliss. An ablution that is wâjib is the one which is made for the tawâfi-ziyârat-explained in the seventh chapter of the fifth fascicle of Endless Bliss. An ablution that is sunnat is the one which is made for reciting the Qur’ân al-kerîm (without holding it) or for visiting Muslims’ cemetery, or making an ablution before a ghusl. An ablution that is mandûb is the one which you make before going to bed and/or after getting up. If you tell a lie or gossip about someone or listen to music arousing lust, it is mandûb to make a tawba and istighfâr for the sin involved and then make an ablution. It is mandûb as well to have an ablution when going out for a gathering of ’ilm (knowledge) or to renew your ablution although you made an ablution which you still have but after which you have done something which would not be permissible to do without an ablution, [for instance if you have performed namâz.] If you have not performed that act of worship (with the ablution you made), it is makrûh to make an ablution although you have an ablution. CONCERNING WATER There are four kinds of water: Mâ-i-mutlaq; mâ-i-muqayyad; mâ-i-meshkuk; mâ-i-musta’mal. [1] 1– Examples of mâ-i-mutlaq are rain water, sea water, running spring water, and water from a well. This kind of water possesses the property to make dirty things clean. It can be used for any purpose. 2– Examples of mâ-i-muqayyad are melon juice, water-melon [1] ‘Mâ’ means ‘water’. – 93 –
