Dua on sighting the New Moon (Ruya)

Dua on sighting the New Moon (Ruya)

Dua on sighting the New Moon (Ruya)

When you see the new moon on 29th or 30th of the Islamic Month, Read this below Dua (Supplications)



Dua in Arabic on seeing the new moon

Dua-on-sighting-the-New-Moon-(Ruya)

Dua in English for sighting New Moon

Allahumma Ahillahu Alayna Bil’amni Wal-i•man. 
Was-salamati Wal Islam.
Wattawf•iqi Lima Tuhibbu Wa Tarda.
Rabbi• Wa Rabbukal-lah.

English Translation of the Dua

O Allah! Let the crescent moon appear over us
with security and Iman; with peace and Islam;
and with ability for us to practice
such actions which You love.

(O’ Moon!) My Creator and Your Creator is Allah.

Some Rules Pertaining To Sighting Moon

  1. It is incumbent on Muslims to search for the moon of Ramadhan on the end of the 29th of Sha’ban.
  2. The testimony of a fasiq (flagrant transgressor) regarding the sighting of the moon is not acceptable.
  3. The testimony of a person (whose personal condition is not known) is acceptable according to Imam Abu Hanifah (R.A.).
  4. If someone sees the moon of Ramadhan alone, but for some reason his testimony was rejected, he will have to fast on that day.If he does not, he will have to observe Qadha of the fast. However, there is no Kaffarah on him in this case, if he completes thirty days for Ramadhan and the moon for Eid was not sighted, he will have to continue fasting with the people even if it means that he fasts for thirty one days.
  5. The moon for Sha’ban was sighted. The month of Rajab was completed with thirty days and Ramadhan was commenced without the moon of Ramadhan being sighted. At the end of 28th day of Ramadhan the moon or Shawwal was sighted. In this case the people have to make Qadha of one fast.
  6. The moon for Sha’ban was not sighted. However, the month was completed with thirty days and Ramadhan was commenced without the moon of Ramadhan being sighted so Sha`ban was also 30 days. At the end of the 28th day of fasting the moon for Shawwal was sighted. In this case two fasts have to be made Qadha.
  7. One should not take offence if one’s report of sighting of the moon is not accepted by the scholars. Non-acceptance of information regarding the sighting of the moon is not always because of the reporters being a fasiq or unreliable. At times the sighting of a single person or even of a few persons is not acceptable to the Shariah. Thus, rejection of testimony is based on Shari grounds.
  8. If the sky is not clear and thirty days of Ramadhan have passed then in declaring Eid-ul-Fitr there is no difference of opinion even if one person testified for the commencement of Ramadhan.
  9. There is no validity in seeing the moon in the day, whether it be before or after Zawaal the moon that will be regarded as the moon of the coming night can only be seen at night.

Information on Fasting (Roza in Hindi)

Information on Fasting (Roza in Hindi)

Information on Fasting (Roza in Hindi) Fasting Q&A

Rozah kis par farz hai ?

Ramazaan ke roze har musalmaan, Mard O Awrat,  Aaqil O Baaligh par farz hai.

Rozah farz hone ka inkaar karnewala kaafir hai. Baghair sharai majboori ke chhodne-wala gunahgaar aur dozakh ka sazawaar hai.

Bachche rozah rakh sakte hon to un ko rakhwaya jaaye aur mazboot aur taaqatwar ladke aur ladkiyon ko maar kar rakhwaya jaaye.( agar na rakhein )

Ramazaan k poore mahine ke rozeh farz hai. Roze 10 Shaabaan 2 hijri mein farz huwe.

DURRE MUKHTAAR

 Rozah kisko kehte hai ?

Shariyat ki nazar mein rozeh ka matlab hai ke Allah ki ibaadat ki niyyat se subha saadiq se le kar suraj dubne tak (maghrib tak) khaane piine aur jimaa (matlab biwi se mulaaqaat- ham-bistari ) se apne ko rok rakhna.

Rozeh farz hone ki wajeh kya hai ?

Huzur sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi wasallam ne kuch din ramazaan k mahine mein ghaare hiraa mein guzaare Aur un dinon mein khaane se parhez karte aur raat Zikrullah ( Allah ki yaad ) mein guzaarte..

To un dinon ki yaad taaza karne k liye roze farz kiye taake Allah k Rasool ki sunnat qaayem rahe.

 Kya haiz O nifaas wali awrat par bhi rozah farz hai..?

Awrat par haiz O nifaas ki haalat mein rozah sahih nahi Lekin haiz O nifaas wali awrat par in dinon ( haiz k din ) k guzarne k baad, paak hone k baad, in chhute huwe rozon ki qazaa farz hai.
Naa baaligh par rozah farz nahi.

Kaffara (Penalty) of breaking fast and Actions that break the fast (Roza)

Kaffara (Penalty) of breaking fast and Actions that break the fast (Roza)

Actions that break the fast (Roza) and Kaffara (Penalty) of breaking fast


Actions that break the fast (Roza) and Kaffara (Penalty) of breaking fast
If the fast of Ramadan is purposely broken then Kaffara is necessary. The Kaffara (compensation) is either to free one slave and if this is not possible then keep sixty fasts consecutively without a gap and if this is also not possible then feed fully sixty beggars twice in a day. If the sixty fasts are kept and in the middle even if one day's fast is missed then you must start the sixty again the previous ones will not count. If someone had kept fifty nine fasts and was unable to keep the sixtieth due to illness etc. then they must start again the previous fifty nine are wasted.

However, if a woman starts her period in between then she must miss them and continue the fasts once she becomes clean and the previous fasts before the period started will count and when completing sixty the Kaffara will be completed [Radd-ul-Mohtar, Bahar, Alamgiri]. When breaking the fast and for Kaffara to become necessary there are a few conditions that have to be fulfilled and only then the Kaffara become necessary.

Conditions where Kaffara become necessary
  1. A fast is kept in the month of Ramadan with the intention of keeping a fast of Ramadan.
  2. The person keeping the fast is a resident and not a traveller.
  3. The person is an adult and is sane (if a child or madman breaks the fast then Kaffara is not necessary).
  4. The intention for the fast of Ramadan was done at night (if the intention for the fast was made in the day before midday and then broken then only Qaza is necessary not Kaffara).
  5. After breaking the fast an act occurred which gives reason to miss a fast which you had no control over such as a woman started her period or such an illness occurred where it is allowed to miss a fast then the Kaffara will not be necessary. If however, after breaking the fast a person became a Ma'zoor (had a problem) which was within their control such as a person injured themselves and therefore became Ma'zoor or became a traveller then the Kaffara will not be cancelled as these things are within their control and Kaffara becomes necessary [Durr-e-Mukhtar, Johra, Alamgiri, Bahar].
  6. Rule: A person fasting purposely eat or drank some medicine or tablets or drank water or had something to eat or drink for pleasure or had intercourse in the front or back passage with a person capable of having intercourse (male or female) and whether they had an orgasm or not or had intercourse with another person fasting then in all these situations both Qaza and Kaffara is necessary.
  7. Rule: If such an act is done whereby the thought is that the fast will not break(except eating, drinking or having intercourse), but you thought that the fast has broken and then you eat or drank, for example, you extracted blood or put on Surma (eye colour) or you had intercourse with an animal or touched a woman or kissed a woman or laid next to a woman or performed foreplay but in all these cases you did not reach orgasm i.e. did not ejaculate, or you put a dry finger up the anus and then after this you purposely eat or drank then in all these cases it is necessary to perform Qaza and Kaffara. If however, an act is performed where the thought is that the fast does not break and you thought that the fast had broken and a Mufti (Islamic jurist) gave a Fatwa and the Mufti is respected within the local community and the Fatwa is that the fast has broken and then you purposely eat or drank, or you had wrongly misinterpreted a Hadith and thought that the fast had broken and then you eat and drank, then the Kaffara is not necessary even though the Fatwa is wrong or the Hadith heard is not proven [Durr-e-Mukhtar, Bahar].

The Holy Prophet has stated that when you start the Iftar, then start it with either some dates or dry, dates, and if these are not available then start it with water as this is an item that purifies. 

The Holy Prophet used to pray this Dua when finishing the fast (Dua of Iftari) "Allahumma Laka Sumto, Wa Alaa Rizqika Aftarto" meaning, Oh Allah I fasted for you and I have opened my fast with vour given wealth.

#Dua is a Arabic word meaning "invocation" and it is an act of supplication. The term is derived from an Arabic word meaning to 'call out' or to 'summon', and Muslims regard this as a profound act of worship.

RabbiawziAAnee an ashkura niAAmataka allatee anAAamta AAalayya waAAalawalidayya waan aAAmala salihan tardahuwaaslih lee fee thurriyyatee innee tubtuilayka wa-innee mina almuslimeen.

“My Lord, enable me to be grateful for Your favor which You have bestowed upon me and upon my parents and to work righteousness of which You will approve and make righteous for me my offspring. Indeed, I have repented to You, and indeed, I am of the Muslims.”
{Surat Al Ahqaf 46: Ayaah 15}




The Prophet (Salalahu 'alaihi was sallam) said:

The best dhikr is:
لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا الله
'La ilaha illa Allah'
(There is no god but Allah). 


"There are two expressions which are light on the tongue but heavy in scale and are dear to the Compassionate One (Allah). These two phrases are:
سُبْحَانَ اللَّهِ وَبِحَمْدِه
'Subha-nal-lahi-wa-biham-dihi'
(Glorified be Allah and His is the Praise.)



سُبْحَانَ اللَّهِ العَظِيْمِ
'Subha-nal-lahil Adeem'
(Glorified be Allah, the Most Exalted)." (B)


"The dearest words to Allah are four:
سُبْحَانَ اللهِ
'SubhanAllah'
(Glory be to Allah)

َالْحَمْدُ لله
'Alhamdulillah'
(Praise be to Allah)

َاللهُ أَكْبَر
'Allahu Akbar'
(God is the Greatest)

لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا الله
'La ilaha illallah'
(There is no god but Allah)

There is no difference in which order you say them (while remembering Allah)." (M)
*****
Once the Prophet (S) left to pray Fajr Salat from (his wife's home) while she was offering prayer. When he (S) returned after Ishraq prayer, she was still sitting on her prayer carpet. On this he (S) said to her: "Have you been continuously sitting in the same place since I left you?" She replied, "Yes." Thereupon he (S) said: "After I left you, I have recited four sentences three times; and if they could be measured against what you have recited since morning they would prove weightier. These four sentences are:
سبحان الله وبحمده عدد خلقه, ورضا نفسه, وزنة عرشه, ومداد كلماته
"Subhanal lahi wa bi ham-di-hi ada-da Khal-qihi wa rida'a naf-sihi wa zina-ta 'ar-shi-hi wa mida-da Kale-mate-hi."
(Glory be to Allah and praise is due to Him, according to the number of His creation and according to His pleasure and corresponding to the weight of His Throne and as much as the ink [used in recording] His words). (M)

*****
"Whoever says,
لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللهُ وَحَدْهُ لَا شَرِيكَ لَهُ، لَهُ الْمُلْكُ وَلَهُ الْحَمْدُ يُحْيِي وَيُمِيتُ، وَهُوَ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ
'La illaha illallah, wah-dahu la sharika lah, Lahul-mulku wa lahul hamd, wa huwa 'ala Kul-li shayin Qadeer.'
(There is no god but Allah, alone, without any partner. The Kingdom and praise belong to Him and He has power over everything.)

...100 times a day, will have a recompense equal to that of freeing ten slaves. Also, 100 good actions are written for him, 100 wrong actions are erased from him, and it is a protection from Satan for that day until the night. No one does anything more excellent than someone who does more than that." (B & M)
*****
"Is one amongst you powerless to get one thousand virtues every day?" Amongst those who had been sitting there, one asked, 'How can one amongst us get one thousand virtues every day?' He (S) said, "Say:
سُبْحَانَ اللهِ
'Subhan Allah'
(Glory be Allah)

...100 times. For (by reciting them), one thousand virtues are recorded (to your credit) and one thousand vices are blotted out." (M)
*****
"Shall I tell you a sentence which is one of the treasures of Paradise?" I said, 'Yes, Messenger of Allah!' He said, "It is...
لَا حَوْلَ وَلَا قُوَّةَ إِلاَّ بِاللَّهِ
'La Haula wala Quwwata il-la bil-lah.'
(There is neither strength nor power except with Allah)." (B & M)

*****
"He who says,
رَضِيْتُ بِاللهِ رَبَّا ً وَبِالإِسْلامِ دِيْنا ً وَبِمُحَمَّد ٍ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ رسولا
'Raditu bil-lahi rabban wabil-islami dinan wabi-Muhammadin nabiyyan salalahi aleihe weselem rasulah.'

*****
Waking Up from a Bad Dream
"If any of you saw a dream which he liked, then that was from Allah, and he should thank Allah for it and tell it to others. But if he saw something else, i.e. a dream that he did not like, then that is from Satan and he should seek refuge with Allah from it and should not tell it to anybody for it will not harm him." (B)
"A good dream is from Allah and a bad dream is from Satan. So whoever has seen (in a dream) something he disliked, then he should spit without saliva thrice on his left side and seek refuge with Allah from Satan by saying:
اعوذ بالله من الشيطان الرجيم
'A'oothu bilahe minashaitan arajeem.'
(I seek refuge with Allah from the accursed devil.)

Then it will not harm him, and Satan cannot appear in my shape.' (B & M)

IMPORTANT TIPS TO REMEMBER WHILE MAKING DUA

1) It is from the sunnah to repeat your dua 3 times.

2) It is from the etiquette of dua to make it in a moderate voice.
Not too loud.
Not too low.

O people! Don’t exert yourselves, for you do not call a deaf or an absent one, but you call the All- Listener, the All-Seer.
– Prophet Muhammad

[Sahih Al Bukhari]

3) Call Allah using His Beautiful Names
Al Wali – The Protecting Friend.
Al Qareeb – The One who is Near.
Al Wakeel – The Most Trustworthy.

4) If Allah granted the dua of Shaytan do you think he will not grant your dua?

Remember that the reply of dua comes in 3 forms

a) Yes.
b) Yes but on a later date, not immediately.
c) Some difficult/trouble is waved off.

“No believer makes Dua and it is wasted. Either it is granted here in this world or deposited for him in the Hereafter as long as he does not get frustrated.”
-[Aisha radiAllahu anha]

5) Make dua for your friends and Ummah, Angels will make the same dua for you. It is an absolute win win situation. Make sure you make dua for atleast 10 close friends.

6) Begin & End your dua by sending Salaam on Prophet Muhammad.

“Invoke blessings at the beginning and the end of your supplications. Allah is sure to accept both blessings and it is unlikely that He would not accept what is in between.”
– [Abu Sulaiman Ad-Darani]

Duaa is suspended between heaven and earth and none of it is taken up until you send blessings upon your Prophet sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam.”
–  [Umar radiAllahu anhu]

7) Dua is a form of Worship. You get rewarded for making dua. This itself should be reason enough for us to be constantly engaged in making dua.
