Fasting & I`tikf


Last Modified:  25 Aug 2011 11:18  GMT

I was praying an obligatory prayer and I had mucous in my mouth out of nowhere. I became confused and swallowed. I was also fasting at the time. Please tell me if my prayer and my fast are valid.

I have asthma, and I have to take inhalers twice a day. I want to know if I can still fast, and that my fast would be accepted if I take my inhalers throughout the day while I’m fasting. I know that people who have health issues that require them to take medication are not required to fast; however, I feel healthy enough on most days to go ahead and fast, as long as I take my inhalers. I would appreciate it if you could clarify this for me.

During the past Ramadan, my wife had to undergo an operation during the day requiring her to be placed under total anesthesia for about 30 minutes. She continued to observe her fast. What is the status of her fast for that day?

I know that it is permissible to use siwâk toothsticks while fasting. However, can a person brush his teeth with toothpase, or would this break his fast?

Mistakenly, I broke my fast two minutes prior to sunset. What is your ruling on the validly of this fast? Do I have to make it up?

Some people sleep all day during Ramadan. They wake up for the prayers and go back to bed. Then, close to sunset, they get up and prepare to break their fasts. They do not feel a thing. Are their fasts valid? Some people argue that a fasting person's sleep is blessed. Is this true?

When is a person supposed to break the fast at night? Is he supposed to do so right after the Sun has set or should he wait for the call to prayer to finish?

Is it from the sunnah that a fasting person has to hear the adhan before he breaks the fast of Ramadan? During Ramadan, the majority of the congregants at our mosque wait to hear the adhan before they break their fasts, sometimes five or more minutes after the Sun has fully set. In fact, those who follow the sunnah and break their fast immediately are looked upon as if they did something wrong.

I fasted today from dawn until sunset. After sunset, I broke my fast and offered the Maghrib prayer. Shortly thereafter, I went to the bathroom and say that my monthy menstrual period had started. I have no idea whether it started before Maghrib or afterwards. Do I have to make that day of fasting over again?

If someone gets drunk on the night before the fast and falls unconscious only to wake up some time during the next day, is that person's fast valid for the day? Bear in mind that the person did not eat or drink anything after dawn.

I thought it was still night time & I ate suhur after dawn! I know that if a person eats forgetfully, his fast is intact. I certainly was not forgetful. I was eating suhur preparing for the day's Ramadan fast, but I made an error about the time. Do I have to make up my fast?

Where in the Sunnah did the Prophet (peace be upon him) ever say "Ramadan mubârak" or "Ramadan karîm"? Isn't it an innovation to say these things?

There is disagreement among the Muslims in our country whether we should follow calculations, a local sighting, or a global sighting. Which group should I follow?



Last Modified:  25 Aug 2011 11:01  GMT

We live in a country far to the East of Mecca so that our day starts about five hours before it does in Mecca. We have been using a local sighting to determine the start of Ramadan and the time of the two `Id prayers. This means that we usually start fasting a day later than Mecca. Should we continue to do this or should we be following the sightings in Mecca? If we follow the sighting in Mecca, it will be very difficult for us to pray the Tarâwîh prayers on the first night of Ramadân, becaus ...

Most mosque are full of worshippers on the 27th night of Ramadan until Fajr, seeking Laylat al-Qadr. Is there any evidence that it is on this night? Is there any special worshp to be carried out on this night? Also, what is the case when different countries start Ramadan on different days - will some countries miss Laylah al-Qadr on account of this dfference?

What are the blessings received by those of us who are busy in the late hours of the night preparing the pre-dawn meal for others? When the rest of the people are at the mosques or in their rooms offering their tahajjud prayers, the people who are preparing the food that everyone will eat are too busy to do so. Some of them might be able to offer a few brief units of prayer on their own, but they will certainly miss out on the congregation and they will not pray anywhere near as much as the peop ...

What is the ruling on i`tikâf for women? Can they observe i`tikâf in their homes, or must they go to the mosque?

Is it true that i`tikâf can only be performed in one of the three sacred mosques



Last Modified:  25 Aug 2011 10:53  GMT

My problem is that I have recently moved to a new city. I want to perform i`tikâf this Ramadan, but the mosques in this city are not peaceful environments and are not easy places for the performance of i`tikâf, though it is possible for me to perform i`tikâf in them. Would it be permissible for me to travel to my old place of residence and offer my i`tikâf at the mosque there, where I will be more at peace and have an easier time of it? I know that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said: “Do ...
