Source : Shafii Fiqh / 25 Jul 2014


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

As salamu alaikum. I would like to ask and be sure what I am doing is correct in regards to fasting in Ramadan. Does one need to stop eating before fajr time enters or before sunrise as it can be a large gap from the start or fajr to sunrise. JazakAllah.

Many claim to love God, but each should examine himself as to the genuineness of the love which he professes.

Moon's radio glow could keep Muslim calendars in sync

Source : New Scientist / 06 Mar 2014

Is it Ramadan yet? Muslim communities look for the new moon to decide, and radio waves could settle the matter.

The Islamic calendar is based on lunar months, with sightings of the first sliver of the waxing moon marking the start of each month. It is possible to calculate when this thin crescent will theoretically be visible, but many Muslims will only accept visual confirmation.
