Answers to some common Ramadan Questions

by Umm Muawiyah

Assalamu Alaikum.

Too late, you say?

It’s never too late to seek knowledge.

Especially not when we are in the most important part of Ramadan, which means we should increase in our ibaadah. And seeking knowledge is an act of ibaadah.

Everyone’s favourite questions include:

1. What are the times when du’aa are accepted during Ramadaan? What specific du’aa should you say during the different parts of Ramadaan and on Laylatul-Qadr or the last 10 days of Ramadaan?

The answer is here.

[Note: The first and last duas that he mentioned were the ones that the Prophet (salallahu alaihi wasallam) recited the most frequently.

Also, another good time when dua is answered is the last hour of Friday i.e. the hour before the adhan of Maghrib.]

2. Is it better for a woman to pray Taraaweeh in the masjid or to pray at home? We have a musalla for prayer, but one of the sisters says it is better to go to pray in a masjid instead of a musalla and that masjid is not upon the Sunnah. So what is your advice?

The answer is here.

3. If a person misses his taraaweeh to be offered with the jamaa`ah (congregation) because he is delayed, is it permissible for him to offer taraaweeh after coming home, by holding the Qur’aan in his hand?

The answer is here.

4. What is allowed between the spouses that will not break the fast, (excluding intercourse, is there anything allowed)? According to the madhhab of Imaam ash-Shaafi’ee رحمه الله touching your husband or wife’s skin breaks your wudū’ and hence, kissing them also breaks the wudū’. How strong is this ruling in terms of dalaail (evidences) and what is the strongest opinion?

The answer is here.

4. Sometimes the children don’t listen or obey you and you have to raise your voice at them, so too when teaching them to fast and to not argue with each other. Does it break your fast to raise your voice at your children in order to get them to behave?

The answer is here.

5. I want to be able to increase in doing more good deeds in Ramadhaan so that I can increase in eemaan, please advise us on ways which will motivate us to do so.

The answer is here.

6. If one deals with teaching the Deen to many children who do not have much Islamic knowledge, nor are their families very practicing in the Deen, what should one focus on when teaching or advising these children during Ramadhaan? The ages of the children can range from 4 years to 13 years.

The answer is here.

7. Question: A person masturbated during the daytime in Ramadaan and he was saddened and wants to know how to make amends for this.

The answer is here.
