Bismillaah wa -Alhamdulillaah wa Salaatu wa Salaam ‘alaa Rasulillaah ‘amma ba’d
Muwahhideen Publications facilitated a LIVE question and answer session for the sisters of Trinidad & Tobago with our teacher, the muhaddith (scholar of hadeeth) Ash-Shaykh Abu ‘Abdullaah ‘Uthmaan ibn ‘Abdullaah as-Saalimee (May Allaah Preserve Him), one of the major scholars of Yemen. This is part of Masjid ulKhaleefah’s Sisters’ Camp 2012, “The Journey of The Muslimah: Her Life, Her Death and Hereafter.”
This was a special sitting via telelink organized for the sisters at Masjid ul Khaleefah, Longdenville, Trinidad. The Shaykh began by giving a short naseehah (advice) to the sisters, that is of course pertinant to the brothers as well. He addressed the sisters by mentioning the ayah 35 in Soorah-tul Ahzab in reference to those who obey Allaah and His Messenger (sallAllaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam), and the Shaykh praised the women who are properly covered by observing the proper hijab, and those who guard their chastity and private parts, as Allaah praised in this verse, mentioning the reward that Allaah has prepared for them. Then Shaykhanna ‘Uthmaan (hafidhahullaah) mentioned the bounty of Ramadhaan and the great rewards that await in this month, from them is the forgiveness of sins from Allaah. Then he admonished the muslims to learn the ahkam(rulings) of fasting and specifically the women in the affair of menses etc. and he mentioned some examples.
May Allaah Al-Aleem cause us to benefit and alleviate our ignorance through sound knowldege. May Allaahgive us knowledge that benefits and protect us from knowledge that does not benefit.

Muharram and ‘Ashurah
Umar Quinn (hafidhahullaah)
Important – Muharram 1434H (2012CE)
Muharram began on 15 November according to Saudi Arabia (please note that local sightings may differ). Therefeore, Ashura will be 24 November 2012 in Saudi Arabia.
“Verily, the number of months with Allah is twelve months (in a year), so it was ordained by Allah on the Day when He created the heavens and the earth; of them, four are sacred. That is the right religion, so wrong not yourselves therein … “ [Al-Qur'an 9:36]
Abu Bakarah (may Allah be pleased with him) reported that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said:
“The year is twelve months of which four are sacred, the three consecutive months of Dhul-Qa’dah, Dhul-Hijjah and Muharram, and Rajab Mudar which comes between Jumadah and Sha’ban.” [Reported by al-Bukhari, 2958]
Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) said:”The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said:
‘The best of fasting after Ramadhan is fasting Allah’s month of Muharram.’ ” [Reported by Muslim, 1982]
Ibn ‘Abbas (may Allah be pleased with them both) said:
“I never saw the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) so keen to fast any day and give it priority over any other than this day, the day of ’Ashura’, and this month, meaning Ramadhan.” [Reported by al-Bukhari, 1867]
The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said:
“For fasting the day of ‘Ashura’, I hope that Allah will accept it as expiation for the year that went before.” [Reported by Muslim, 1976]
