Intention

The Sweetest Words [Ikhlas]

It is reported that the son of Al-Fudayl b. ‘Ayyâd – Allâh have mercy on him – said to his father:

Father! How sweet (beautiful) the speech of the Companions is! [Al-Fudayl] said, “Son, do you know why it was so sweet?” He replied, “No father, I do not.” He said, “Because they sought Allâh the Exalted when they spoke.”

Al-Bayhaqî, Shu’ab Al-îmân 2:299What to intend in Prayer

‘Abdullâh b. Mubârak said:

I asked Sufyân Al-Thawrî, “When a man stands to pray, what should he intend by his recitation and prayer?” He replied, “He should intend that he is personally entreating his Lord.”

Muhammad b. Nasr Al-Marwazî, Ta’dhîm Qadr Al-Salâh Vol. 1 p199.

Family

The Crown and the Weight [wives]

It is reported that ‘Abd Al-Rahmân b. Abzâ – Allâh be pleased with him – said:

A righteous woman with a man is like a great gold-leafed crown on the head of a king, and a bad woman with a man is like a heavy weight upon an old man.

Ibn Abî Al-Shaybah, Al-Musannaf article 17428.

Patience

Umar on obeying the Muslim Ruler

Suwayd b. Ghaflah reports that ‘Umar b. Al-Khattâb – Allâh be pleased with him – once took him by the hand and said:

O Abû Umayah, by Allâh, I know not if we will meet again after today. Fear and obey Allâh your Lord until the Day of Resurrection, as if you see Him, and obey the ruler (imâm) even if he is a cut-nosed Abyssinian slave: if he beats you, be patient; if he robs you, be patient and if he belittles you, be patient. And if he tells you [to do something] to the detriment of your religion (to sin), say: “I hear and obey, [but] my blood goes before my religion.” Never leave the Main Muslim Body (Al-Jamâ’ah).

Ibn Zanjawayh, Kitâb Al-Amwâl article 30; Ibn Abî Zamanîn, Usûl Al-Sunnah article 205 with a slight variation in wording. Also recorded in other collections.

Translation of the Qur'aan

Translation of the Qur'aan

 


Question:

Is it permissible to translate the Qur'aan, for example, into English, French or Hebrew?
Answer:

To translate the Qur'aan into another language is an impossible task, for the wording of the Qur'aan in Arabic is a miracle, one that can not be replicated in another language. However, it is permissible to translate the meanings of the Qur'aan, which means to translate the explanation, or Tafsir of the Qur'aan. Therefore one should choose a trusted Tafsir booking Arabic - one that is in accordance to the way of our pious predecessors - and then proceed to translate it into another language, so that people of other languages may know the meanings of the Qur'aan. We should not forget, though, that it is obligatory upon every Muslim to learn Arabic, that language in which the Qur'aan was revealed, and the language of the Sharia'ah, so that one may correctly understand his religion, his Lord's speech, and the Prophet's Sunnah.
Shaykh Muhammad bin Saalih al-`Uthaymeen
Fatawa Islamiyah, vol.7, p.39 DARUSSALAM
