Q:I know farting and passing gas is one of the acts that make a person dirty by which he would have to do wodou again, but I heard from multiple sources that there are some times (like when it can't be heard and smelled) it's okay to pass gas without worrying about your wodou if you're a gassy person or you can't control it. I just want to make sure if there are any evidence about that.
It’s not ok to to knowingly pass gas even if it can’t be heard or smelt.
Hearing or smelling the passing of gas is not a condition that nullifies wudhu, but if one is uncertain if they have or haven’t passed gas, then they can use those conditions to test if they have.
"If one of you finds a disturbance in his abdomen and is not certain if he has released any gas or not, he should not leave the Prayer unless he hears its sound or smells its scent." (Sahih Muslim)
Q:Is it true that man is guaranteed wine in heaven? Thank you brother and may Allah forgive your sins.
Simple answer. Yes.
“Is the description of Paradise, which the righteous are promised, wherein are rivers of water unaltered, rivers of milk the taste of which never changes, rivers of wine delicious to those who drink, and rivers of purified honey…” Surat Muĥammad, Verse 15
But it is said they wont taste like the wine in this world, nor will they be intoxicating.
Q:Salaam, Quick question many are saying that they felt Laylat Al Qadr was last night. Allahu A'alam but what did you feel last night? I hope insha'Allah none of us missed it.
Insha’Allah none of us missed it, although there were signs, it should not stop us from seeking Laylat Ul Qadr in the coming days.
Q:I'm not really asking a question here, but I'm just tired of seeing all these talks about homosexuality and all. I feel like there are more important topics people could be asking about but instead they choose a topic that's too obvious to question. Topics like unsuccessful circumcisions, war, and misunderstood verses and such.
You are absolutely correct, I will stop answering any of such questions from now on, inshaAllah.
Q:im confused, so is it wrong to me gay/lesbian? like is it haram? help?
Yes, In Islam homosexuality is strictly prohibited.
Q:In reply to your anon reply - just some advice from a student of health. HIV is NOT a 'gay disease'. Yes, it does spread through sexual promiscuity, but it also spreads through poor women being infected by promiscuous husbands, and by children being born of these women, and then the innocent children pass on the disease to their spouses and children - hence it spreads so quickly, and is so disastrous.
Yes. I never said HIV/AIDs is limited to homosexuality, but the likeliness of it is much greater. As for sexual promiscuity, its also something that Islam forbids (Pre-Marital Sex, Adultery etc.) Even with cleanliness of the body, Islam is strict on keeping the body clean and pure.
Ramadan Revelations: Day Twenty Three
Treat every night like an odd night for it may be that you started on the wrong day and the only way to guarantee catching Laylatul Qadr is to stand all 10 nights in prayer. The Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him) did I’itikaf for all 10 nights even though he said look for it on the odd nights.
May Allah allow us all to witness Laylatul Qadr this year. Ameen!
