  • Supplicating when drinking Zamzam water

    Assalaamu alaykum. I know that the hadith of the Prophet  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) says that Zamzam water is for the purpose that it is drunk for. So whatever supplication/intention I make before drinking Zamzam will be accepted. Suppose that I have a lot of supplications to make.

  • Reward is earned every time good deed is done

    Assalaamu alaykum wa rahmatullaahi wa barakaatuhu. I love you for the sake of Allaah.

  • Angels descend upon reciter of Quran

    Assalaamu alaykum wa rahmatullaahi wa barakaatuhu, Shaykh. It is true that angels look for gatherings where Allaah, The Exalted, is mentioned (and all that is mentioned in the hadiths that speak about this subject takes place).

  • Saying Thikr in language other than Arabic

    In one of the fatwas, you stated that doing Thikr (expressions of remembrance of Allaah) of some recitation is advised for a man before having intercourse with his wife.

  • Intention in supplicating

    Assalaamu alaykum. Please answer me directly; I would be grateful to you! Does the intention depend on supplication? Do we get the reward by saying 'In Shaa Allaah' (if Allaah wills)while not having any intention to do it, or supplicating without having the intention to do so? Can these things be accepted by Allaah without holding an intention, like.. More

    Assalaamu alaykum wa rahmatullaahi wa barakaatuh. I received this message, is this supplication really against earthquakes?
