Beard recite fast
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Your Question: SO WHAT SHOULD I DO?? CUT OR GROM?? because i have read in one of your answers a hadeeth in which allah likes the one obeying his parents only second to prayers and ahead of even jihad!!!
Ibn 'Umar related that the Messenger of Allah (saws) said: "Differ from the polytheists: let your beards (grow), and trim your moustache."
Related by al-Bukhari and Muslim.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 33 Surah Ahzab verse 21:
There is indeed the best model for you in the Messenger of Allah, for every such person looks forward to Allah and the Last Day, and remember Allah much.
In another narration, the Prophet of Allah said in narrating a prophecy of times to come:
Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 9.651 Narrated by Abu Said Al Khudri
The Prophet (saws) said: There will emerge from the East some people who will recite the Quran, but it will not exceed their throats, and who will go out of the deen of Islam as an arrow passes through the game. They will never come back to it unless the arrow comes back to the middle of the bow by itself (i.e. impossible!). The companions asked, "What will their signs be?". The Prophet (saws) said: "Their sign will be the habit of shaving off of their beards".
Dear and beloved brother in Islam, to adorn a beard is indeed a preferred Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah (saws), but to obey the lawful commands of ones parents is an absolutely obligatory duty upon every believer who sincerely fears Allah and the Last Day.
But if ones parents command their children to do something which is against the clear guidance of Allah and His Messenger (saws), not obeying their unlawful command would neither constitute disobedience to parents, nor a sin in the Sight of Allah Subhanah.
Al-Tirmidhi Hadith 3696 Narrated by An-Nawwas ibn Sam'an
Allah's Messenger (saws) said, "A creature is not to be obeyed when it involves disobedience to the Creator."
Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 1.14 Narrated by Anas
The Prophet (saws) said "None of you will have faith till he loves me more than his father, his children, and all mankind!"
Your Question: in our taraweeh prayer the imam recites very fast as he has to finish the whole quran in 12 days.. is it right because he might be missing a lot of things and allah knows best.. do tell me in detail..
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 73 Surah Muzammil verse 4:
4 and (O Prophet) recite the Quran in slow, measured, rhythmic tones.
Sunan of Abu-Dawood Hadith 829 Narrated by Jabir ibn Abdullah
The Messenger of Allah (saws) came to us while we were reciting the Qur'an, and there were among us bedouins and the non-Arabs. He (saws) said: Recite, all is well! In the near future there will appear people who will straighten it (the Qur'an) as an arrow is straightened. They will recite it quickly and not slowly.
Allah and His Messenger (saws) have guided the believers to recite the Glorious Quran in slow measured rhythmic tones. It is indeed unfortunate that some imams, in their zest to complete the Quran in a fixed number of days, recite it so fast that neither they themselves understand what is being recited, nor do the believers praying behind them comprehend the Glorious Verses of Allah Subhanah.
Although ones prayer behind the imam who recites the Quran very fast will still be valid and they will have their due reward from Allah Subhanah for their worship, it would obviously be better and preferred to pray behind an imam who recites the Quran in a slow rhythmic tone.
Your Question: the imam keep abottle of water which he drinks and even blows into it so that the water becomes something pure to be given to kids and sick.. do comment!!
There is absolutely no evidence in the authentic and established Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah (saws), nor in the traditions of his (saws) noble companions, nor amongst the people of knowledge that the blowing of the imam leading the prayer into a bottle of water makes the water pure, or can be used as a cure for illnesses, or that such water has any significance or merit whatsoever!
Such an act would be a clear manifestation of bida or innovation, and every innovation in the pure and perfect deen of Islam is an error.
Aisha narrated that the Messenger of Allah (saws) said: If somebody innovates something which is not present in our religion, then that thing will be rejected.
Related by Bukhari.
Sunan of Abu-Dawood Hadith 4515 Narrated by Ali ibn AbuTalib
That the Prophet of Allah (saws) said: If anyone introduces an innovation (in religion), he will be responsible for it. If anyone introduces an innovation or gives shelter to a man who introduces an innovation (in religion), he is cursed by Allah, by His Angels, and by all the people.
Sahih Muslim Hadith 1885 Narrated by Jabir ibn Abdullah
That the Prophet of Allah (saws) said in a sermon: The best speech is that which is embodied in the Book of Allah, the Al Quran; and the best guidance is the guidance given by me, Mohamed (saws). The most evil affairs are the innovations, and every innovation is an error.
If one trusts, obeys, and follows the guidance and commands of Allah and His Messenger (saws), one can be assured of never ever being misled; but if one believes, obeys and follows any other guidance, other than that of Allah and His Messenger (saws), one can be assured of being led astray.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
