    Where do I put my suicide vest when I am preforming Salah?
    Is it haram to have it on when praying? I am currently fighting in Idlib and nobody has an answer?
    Allah is great, Muhammad is he's prophet, let peace be upon him.

    I have a question for the Muslims. The way the Muslims pray is specifically rooted in the Hadiths. Do Muslims follow ALL of the Hadiths then? I’ve heard that a lot of Muslims reject the Hadiths

    I American Muslim for 15 years and I am embarrassed to say that I can't  speak Arabic very well but I am learning.   I know Allah is the one true God and there is no God but Allah.  Your video was excellent, It help me to correct what I was doing wrong and what I should be doing correctly.  I need your help if possible my brother, during Ramadan , I go to the masjid  to make EID pray and I don't know all the words in Arabic for  the EID pray, The Masjid passes out a handout with the words on the EID pray so we can read the pray aloud while we are at the Masjid, but I still don't know how to say all the words correctly.  I never had Islamic classes, but I plan to start taking them at the Masjid.  I would like to ask you, do you have a video on the EID pray, that could help me to do everything correctly.  Thank you very much and may Allah blessing and be upon you. I know you are suppose to say in Arabic , Suk ran  Gazilan  Kareem

    I've been Muslim for my entire life and it is both a blessing and something that makes me sad when I come across these videos as I find out how much I don't know about Islam. Alhumdulillah that there are all of these resources to help us learn. InshaAllah we will all become better Muslims day by day.

    Assalamualaikum. Jazakumullahu khairan. I would like to ask a question… If you are offering a 4 unit salat, is it expected to recite the salatul ibrahimiyya after tahiyyat at both sittings(2nd & 4th rakaat) or just the last sitting(4th rakaat)????

    Jazakallah for an invaluable source of information and help. This is not just for new or non Muslims but very useful for non Arabic speaking Muslims which number the majority in the world. I'm not an Arabic speaking person so need this to learn the correct way to pronounce. It's so easy to mispronounce Quranic verses when you don't have the fortunate of growing up in an Arabic speaking country or household.

    As salaamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa. Thank you very much for dropping this haqq. I just wanted to ask regarding the dua at the end of salat seeking refuge on qiyyamah and seeking refuge in the grave and from the dijjal. Is not this part of the salat? Is it mandatory or reccomended? May Allah aid you in your efforts and grant you al firdous.

    Salam Is Salat A Ritual Prayer?
    Translating salat as 'prayer' in the following verses does not fit.
    Translators such as Yusuf Ali (and others) recognized this and amended their translation accordingly.
    [2:157] , [2:238] , [9:5] , [11:87] , [24:41] , [4:102 and 33:56] , [9:99] , [9:103] , [19:31]

    أُولَٰئِكَ عَلَيْهِمْ صَلَوَاتٌ مِّن رَّبِّهِمْ وَرَحْمَةٌ وَأُولَٰئِكَ هُمُ الْمُهْتَدُونَ
    To those will be salawat from their Lord and a mercy, they are the guided ones. [2:157]

    Does the Lord perform ritual prayers for people? (salawat = plural of salat)

    حَافِظُوا عَلَى الصَّلَوَاتِ وَالصَّلَاةِ الْوُسْطَىٰ وَقُومُوا لِلَّهِ قَانِتِينَ
    Preserve the salawat, and the wusta (commonly translated as 'middle') salat, and stand/persist devoutly to GOD. [2:238]

    Why would God mention to preserve the prayers, and then say "… and the middle prayer" ? Surely, the first comment includes the middle prayer?
    Is there something special about the middle prayer?
    Does this have any support from al quran?

    [additional inconsistencies with this verse]

    The most accurate translation of 2:238 is as follows, followed by a short explanation:

    Preserve/guard on the orations/bonds, and the most balanced oration/bond, and stand/persist to/for The God in obedience. [2:238]

    The context prior to 2:238 discusses formal/public orations/vows/bonds. The core meaning of these orations/vows, as implied by the root, are to go/turn towards in a close/positive manner. This view is given further weight by the use of "QaNiTeena/obedience" at the end of the ayat/sign. And the reference of "the most balanced oration/bond" (i.e. al quran) provides a perfect link for 2:239.

    فَإِذَا انسَلَخَ الْأَشْهُرُ الْحُرُمُ فَاقْتُلُوا الْمُشْرِكِينَ حَيْثُ وَجَدتُّمُوهُمْ وَخُذُوهُمْ وَاحْصُرُوهُمْ وَاقْعُدُوا لَهُمْ كُلَّ مَرْصَدٍ فَإِن تَابُوا وَأَقَامُوا الصَّلَاةَ وَآتَوُا الزَّكَاةَ فَخَلُّوا سَبِيلَهُمْ إِنَّ اللَّهَ غَفُورٌ رَّحِيمٌ
    So when the sacred months are passed, then you may kill those who have set-up partners wherever you find them, and take them, and surround them, and stand against them at every point. If they repent, and uphold the salat, and contribute to the zakat, then you shall leave them alone. GOD is forgiving, Merciful. [9:5]

    Is God saying here that the unbelievers must perform prayers if they are going to be forgiven by the people? The essential point of prayer is that one believes in a higher being! Therefore why force them into praying if they are idolaters? If so, this would contradict 2:256 "no compulsion in the system/religion".

    قَالُوا يَا شُعَيْبُ أَصَلَاتُكَ تَأْمُرُكَ أَن نَّتْرُكَ مَا يَعْبُدُ آبَاؤُنَا أَوْ أَن نَّفْعَلَ فِي أَمْوَالِنَا مَا نَشَاءُ إِنَّكَ لَأَنتَ الْحَلِيمُ الرَّشِيدُ
    They said: 'Oh Shuaib, does your salat instruct you that we leave what our fathers served, or that we do with our money as we please?. You then are the compassionate, the sane!'. [11:87]

    Receiving instruction/laws through prayer? How does Shuaib's "prayer" affect the spending of others?

    أَلَمْ تَرَ أَنَّ اللَّهَ يُسَبِّحُ لَهُ مَن فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ وَالطَّيْرُ صَافَّاتٍ كُلٌّ قَدْ عَلِمَ صَلَاتَهُ وَتَسْبِيحَهُ وَاللَّهُ عَلِيمٌ بِمَا يَفْعَلُونَ
    Do you not see that everything in the heavens and the earth glorifies GOD, even the birds assembled (with wings expanded)? Each knows its salat and its glorification. And GOD is fully aware of everything they do. [24:41]

    Do birds pray? Do they have a special prayer? If so, does this have any support in al quran?

    وَمِنَ الْأَعْرَابِ مَن يُؤْمِنُ بِاللَّهِ وَالْيَوْمِ الْآخِرِ وَيَتَّخِذُ مَا يُنفِقُ قُرُبَاتٍ عِندَ اللَّهِ وَصَلَوَاتِ الرَّسُولِ أَلَا إِنَّهَا قُرْبَةٌ لَّهُمْ سَيُدْخِلُهُمُ اللَّهُ فِي رَحْمَتِهِ إِنَّ اللَّهَ غَفُورٌ رَّحِيمٌ
    And from the Nomads are those who believe in God and the last day, and he looks upon what he spends to make him closer to God, and the salawat to the messenger. It indeed makes them closer. God will admit them in His mercy; God is Forgiving, Merciful. [9:99]

    How does looking upon what one spends make one closer to the prayers of the messenger?

    خُذْ مِنْ أَمْوَالِهِمْ صَدَقَةً تُطَهِّرُهُمْ وَتُزَكِّيهِم بِهَا وَصَلِّ عَلَيْهِمْ إِنَّ صَلَاتَكَ سَكَنٌ لَّهُمْ وَاللَّهُ سَمِيعٌ عَلِيمٌ
    Take from their money a charity to purify them and better them with it, and salla them. Your salat is a tranquility for them, and God is Hearer, Knowledgeable. [9:103]

    How can one's salat be a tranquillity/assurance for someone else?

    فَأَشَارَتْ إِلَيْهِ قَالُوا كَيْفَ نُكَلِّمُ مَن كَانَ فِي الْمَهْدِ صَبِيًّا
    قَالَ إِنِّي عَبْدُ اللَّهِ آتَانِيَ الْكِتَابَ وَجَعَلَنِي نَبِيًّا
    وَجَعَلَنِي مُبَارَكًا أَيْنَ مَا كُنتُ وَأَوْصَانِي بِالصَّلَاةِ وَالزَّكَاةِ مَا دُمْتُ حَيًّا
    So she pointed to him (Jesus). They said: "How can we talk to someone who is a child in a cradle?" He (Jesus) said: "I am God's servant, He has given me the scripture and made me a prophet". "And He made me blessed wherever I was, and He enjoined me with the salat and the zakat as long as I am alive" [19:29-31]

    Did Jesus perform the prayer as long as he was alive? Does this mean as a baby he did the 'wudu' (the traditional sequence of washing), bowed and prostrated as is traditionally done?

    In each of these examples, are you having to force your opinion on the verse?

    Well known translators (e.g. Yusuf Ali) have used different words depending on context, see the following for one example:

    وَإِذَا كُنتَ فِيهِمْ فَأَقَمْتَ لَهُمُ الصَّلَاةَ فَلْتَقُمْ طَائِفَةٌ مِّنْهُم مَّعَكَ وَلْيَأْخُذُوا أَسْلِحَتَهُمْ فَإِذَا سَجَدُوا فَلْيَكُونُوا مِن وَرَائِكُمْ وَلْتَأْتِ طَائِفَةٌ أُخْرَىٰ لَمْ يُصَلُّوا فَلْيُصَلُّوا مَعَكَ وَلْيَأْخُذُوا حِذْرَهُمْ وَأَسْلِحَتَهُمْ وَدَّ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا لَوْ تَغْفُلُونَ عَنْ أَسْلِحَتِكُمْ وَأَمْتِعَتِكُمْ فَيَمِيلُونَ عَلَيْكُم مَّيْلَةً وَاحِدَةً وَلَا جُنَاحَ عَلَيْكُمْ إِن كَانَ بِكُمْ أَذًى مِّن مَّطَرٍ أَوْ كُنتُم مَّرْضَىٰ أَن تَضَعُوا أَسْلِحَتَكُمْ وَخُذُوا حِذْرَكُمْ إِنَّ اللَّهَ أَعَدَّ لِلْكَافِرِينَ عَذَابًا مُّهِينًا
    When thou (O Messenger) art with them, and standest to lead them in prayer( الصَّلَاةَ), Let one party of them stand up (in prayer) with thee, Taking their arms with them: When they finish their prostrations, let them Take their position in the rear. And let the other party come up which hath not yet prayed( يُصَلُّوا) – and let them pray(فَلْيُصَلُّوا) with thee, Taking all precaution, and bearing arms: the Unbelievers wish, if ye were negligent of your arms and your baggage, to assault you in a single rush. But there is no blame on you if ye put away your arms because of the inconvenience of rain or because ye are ill; but take (every) precaution for yourselves. For the Unbelievers Allah hath prepared a humiliating punishment. (4:102)

    If Yu-sal-lu means prayer in Chapter 4 Verse 102 but why not in Chapter 33 Verse 56. Same word, different translation.

    إِنَّ اللَّهَ وَمَلَائِكَتَهُ يُصَلُّونَ عَلَى النَّبِيِّ يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا صَلُّوا عَلَيْهِ وَسَلِّمُوا تَسْلِيمًا
    Allah and His angels send blessings(يُصَلُّونَ) on the Prophet: O ye that believe! Send ye blessings(صَلُّوا) on him, and salute him with all respect. (33:56)

    Are you sure salat = ritual prayer?
