In the name of Allah, Most Compassionate, Most Merciful,
‘Udhiya’ is an Arabic term which means “sacrificing an animal”, and ‘Qurbani’ is an Urdu and Persian word derived from the Arabic word ‘Qurban’ which literally means an act performed to seek Allah’s pleasure. It is technically used for the sacrifice of an animal slaughtered for the sake of Allah.

The ‘aqiqah is sunnah. Imams Ahmad and Tirmidhi related a hadith which Hakim made tashih of on the authority of Samurah that the Prophet (sallaAllahu alayhie wa sallam) said,
“The child is bonded by its ‘aqiqah, slaughter for it on the seventh day, shave its head, and give a name.”

In the Shafi’i Madhhab, if a woman’s son is connected to her only by the bond of being her child, then he cannot act as her guardian and marry her off. If another connection between them is established, then he may according to that. An example of this is them sharing in lineage by him being both her son and also the son of her uncle’s son; or for example, if he was the judge [qadi].

What is Imam Shafi’s opinion regarding reciting the Fatihah behind the imam after he finishes? Is it similar to the Hanafi school (they say the imam’s recitation Fatihah is sufficient)?

As salamu alaikum, would you mind answering about an abortion? Is it permissible before 120 days of pregnancy? Can you give information about the mu’tamad position of the Shafi school and what Ibn Hajar said about it in his “Tuhfah” about it?

After I make ghusl, sometimes some more fluid comes out. Does this require ghusl again?

Assalamualaikum, it is my understanding that one must do ghusl (obligatory bath) if one secretes semen. But ghusl is not required for pre-cum. Still one must change the article of clothing? If this is the case, then what if an individual is out i.e. at work, and is not in a position to do so? Can he pray the fard prayers? Keeping that he cleans his private parts and slightly washes the article of clothing also? Is the prayer accepted?

Please give me details on Zakaatul-Fitr, is it possible to give money instead of food items?

Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh,
In “Reliance of the Traveler” in the section “Washing away filth”, the sheikh (rahimuhu Allah) says: “But if it is a substance (with discernible characteristics, i.e. najasa ‘ayniyya) it is obligatory to remove all taste of it, even if difficult, and to remove both color and odor if not difficult.
Could you please clarify the obligation to remove all taste of najasah ‘ainiyyah
Jazakum Allahu khairan

This year in our country, the fasting hours are will last for around 19 hours. How would Muslims fast such long hours?
Muslims in countries where the fasting hours are 18 hours or more are to estimate the time for starting and breaking their fast. The principle of estimating fasting hours that extend beyond the normal hours is derived from actual circumstances. It is difficult for a person to fast continuously for 18 hours or more and experts have determined the inability of the human body to tolerate such extended periods of fasting which definitely poses harm. If this is so, it cannot be maintained that harm is the objective of Islamic law.
