14 Pillars of Prayer

pillars of PRAYER (not Islam, thank you TPofS) if you miss any of them out, for whatever reason, then the prayer is invalid. and missing any pillar cannot be compensated by thr sujood of distraction. You have to redo the prayer.

  1. standing
  2. opening takbeer - Takbiratul Ihraam
  3. Reciting Suratul Fatihah
  4. Rukoo'
  5. Rising from Rukoo'
  6. Sujood on seven bones
  7. Rising from Sujood
  8. Sitting calmly between sujoods
  9. Being tranquil and calm during each pillar
  10. Doing the pillars in order
  11. The Last Tashaahud
  12. Sitting during the last Tashahud
  13. Sending Salaah and salaam on nabi (pbuh)
  14. The Final Tasleem

YOU are making the sin dude, by going to that concert;

and the shaykh will inshaaAllah tell you the valid excuses.

Is it true? Is it kind? Is it necessary?

by going to that concert... EXPLAIN PLEAAAAAAAASEEEEEEEE

hey and I have a question:

what if its asr time and my brother is in the bathroom... should I pray alone, or wait and pray with him (congregation), and what if asr time finishes...?

and if I have to go to the cinema... and the movie is at 1:20 JUST BEFORE duhr...
and theres another presention but its at 3:45 and until its over its about asr time, so it will be delayed... what is better?

I ahve another question, when you say :''idol worshipping''

what is it exacly?

can I just like, try to be like my favorite band IN THE GOOD WAY, like... doing their job because I like that job , otherwise why would I?

can I put posters, NOT EVERYWHERE, just on my profile of youtube... you know , a picture of a band...

so, when you say idol WORSHIPPING, what is that WORSHIPPING????

Just imagine if one day you grow up and you no longer like heavy metal?

That would be a fun day.

okay, I may not like heavy metal, BUT ALWAYS REMEMBER ALLAH, Smile

well heavy metal is very great... and Allah created me ears so I could hear it!!! and for that I shall never forget, no matter what... (and even if he didnt create me ears I would still remember him) BUT since he did I am MORE AND MORE thankful

but dude, did you see my other post... what kind of idol worshiping?

not everything we can hear we're suppose to hear. like gossiping, the way you go on abt the world i could say "oh but God let gossiping happen so i'm allowed to listen to it"

or "God created lie so we can lie"

or "god wants use to reproduce, so we can do it even if we're not married"

these are all tests.

like. there was two angels that came down and taught people magic but before they taught it to anyone they would tell them "we are a test from Allah so do not learn from us"

its not so obvious nowadays tests are. and they dont talk and say "we are tests, stay away" but its teh same thing

Is it true? Is it kind? Is it necessary?

إِنَّا جَعَلْنَا مَا عَلَى الْأَرْضِ زِينَةً لَّهَا لِنَبْلُوَهُمْ أَيُّهُمْ أَحْسَنُ عَمَلًا

That which is on earth we have made but as a glittering show for the earth, in order that We may test them - as to which of them are best in conduct.

euh... I never talked about tests... but I understand what you mean...

but I mean, when peaple say Idol worshipping... what do they mean???

I only listen to their music, I dont bow down... never,so...

Idol worshipping isnt just worshiping statues like in some religions, but its any 'obsession' or liking of a person/group/BAND that goes beyond whats 'healthy' or goes against the shariah of Islam. But please, please, please, please. The concert is 2 years away. I know you keep saying that what if its 3 days away etc..but its NOT! It rlly IS 2 years away. So you are not going to bring this concert up again right?!

I think your confusing the praying at a LATER time but within time limits with DELAYING the prayer to outside its time. If your brother uses the bathroom whilst Asr is till there, then wait for him, but if its really close then pray without him. Same with the cinema. You cant go to the one where Duhr JUST comes in, cos ull miss it. However, if it finishes by the time Asr comes IN, you'll have time to pray it at home inshaaAllah if its not too far away. Understood?

Smiling is sunnah, smiling is charity.

Not at a non-mahram, though.


The Messenger of Allah (peace & blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “Your smiling in the face of your (Muslim) brother is charity; enjoining the good & forbidding the evil is charity; your guiding a man that has lost his way is charity; & your removing of stones, thorns, & bones from people’s paths is charity for you.”
[Tirmidhi Hadith 36]

yes yessssssssssss understood, lets not bring that concert again,

but, look im not OBESSESED like a psyco maniac wich will die for the band, or out their pictures everyyyyyyyyyyywhere,I just really admire their music, I say , waw theyr good, best band ever! i have some pictures, I listen to their songs, and if somebody says that they suck, I dont care, its his choiice becasue i know thats its good music, but sometimes they say: metal is just screaming, so I explain to them, that their wrong,

so its not worshpping???
(one time I imagined seeing the band close to me and fainting BUT I WAS JOKING... I would reaaaaaaaaaaallyy faint or sweat like a maniac... just imagined things and joking) so its not worshipping right??????????

and today I went to the movies, but their was a movie just before duhr, and it was restarted at 3:50, so I taught i might miss the asr, but I managed to try and get on time, but today was COLD, ICY COLD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YOU COUNDLT MOVE YOUR FINGERS, and my friend lost his wallet... so should I help him search for it or just go, to arrive at time and pray??????????

anyways, thanks

I********** WOULDNT FAINT**********

guys, you will not beilive this, I asked Allah(swt) if he coud wake me up to the fajr so I could go to the concert and pray when I come back, and if I cant go to that concert I asked him to not wake me up.

what happened?

I woke up.

SO, I will pray ehen I come back, do extra prayers, more good deeds, pay more for the poor...

its like candy, do you want just a small gum or a bigggg juicy gum? (do you want that concert or heaven)? well im taking a part of that gum, but not abusing and increasing good deeds so it compensates!

Why are you putting conditions on worshipping Allah? Allah has given you the guidelines, the terms and conditions. It's up to you if you agree with them and accept or not, it's not for you to make your own rules and follow them thinking it will be the same thing.

And why are you trying to test Allah saying "if i wake up for fajr then.....whatever"? It's not for you to test Allah but Allah is the one who test us. Leaving things based on chance is not a good thing. This is all a test from Allah.

what???????????? me? testing Allah (swt)?????? dude I NEVER did that or never will...

if I want to know something... who's the best to ask??

we are not seeing him, so we cant direcly ask him, so, I asked Allah if he could wake me up for fajr, and I would pray then.

so now, I asked him sincirely to wake me up this time if I could go to that concert!!


Exceptional circumstances

Dr. Muhammad Hedayetullah, scholar in comparative religion, in his book Dynamics of Islam (2006), stresses that even though salah is compulsory, flexibility in the specifics is allowed depending on the circumstances: For example, in the case of illness or a lack of space, a worshipper can offer salah while sitting, or even lying down, and the prayer can be shortened when travelling. The salah must be performed in the Arabic language.

LACK OF SPACE, concert=extreme lack of space.
so I will perform it while standing because theres no place to sitt, and do it again even when I get home.

hey, what do they mean by Pride and arrogance, like if your proud of your son if he had 100% in his exam, you cant??

or like besure that your good??? what is pride????????????????????

music...:( is haram???

alright, alright what is there left???????????
what whaaaaaaaatttt??

no music,
no TV
no computer
no swimming
no drawing
no fun

someone said: if you enjoue something without any serve its haram... SO WHAT WILL YOU DO IN LIFE??????? work, learn, and read coran

You can sit and pray in a mosque 24/7.

- this is a different opinion, which suggests that it is onyl not allowed when including or accompanying not allowed things.

"For too long, we have been a passively tolerant society, saying to our citizens 'as long as you obey the law, we will leave you alone'" - David Cameron, UK Prime Minister. 13 May 2015.

NO NOOOOOOO they said it EVERY SINGLE SCHOLAR, every body its written in te hadith, and the coran, no singing and the prophet(saw) never heard music and said that its haram, good or bad words, its HARAAAAAAAAAAMMM

im SO disapointed... im crying Sad

well...... thats it, music is haram...

I just cant beielive it, i never made me bad, I never said bad words, I didnt dance, I just listened to it...
but ... whats the point of still speaking...

well, I think this long long discussion comes to an end.

Asalmo Alaykoum.

In this Hadith the Holy Messenger of Allah sallallahu alaihe wasallam speaks of the Zina committed by the various parts of the human body. Thus, to look at the nudity and evil portrayed on the television screen constitutes the Zina of the eyes as said by Rasoolullah :
"The Zina of the eyes is to look."

To listen to the immodest and illicit sex talks of the television is Zina of the ears, as Rasoolullah sallallahu alaihe wasallam said:

"The Zina of the ears is to listen."

Lust which is aroused by the display, discussion of nudity and perversion on the TV screen constitutes the Zina of the heart as our Nabi sallallahu alaihe wasallam said:

"The Zina of the heart is to desire."

well, no TV no fun no music no sports, no chess, no nothing

do you have an advice for me?
theres nothing to do!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
what do I do,??
read coran... then what?

didn't know there was a hadith about television

Don't just do something! Stand there.

You could try socialising with people for once, who said you can't play sports? Tbh all the things that we have been forbidden to do is no good for us anyway. You may be avoiding these things purely for the sake of Allah but in the long run you're the one who benefits.

May Allah make it easy for you. Ameen
