Sukainah’s questions to her dad…
بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
Sukainah who, you ask?
Sukainah bint Muhammad Nasiruddin Al-Albani.
She’s the daughter of that guy who authenticated thousands of hadeeth.
Oh and he also happened to be one of the greatest scholars of our time.
Nothing to write home about (not if you’re part of that family anyway).
So, whilst Shaikh Al-Albani (rahimahullah) was alive, his daughter asked him a few questions.
And then she posted these questions on her blog under the label: “I asked my father”.
Two of these questions were about Ramadan and a brother has translated both of them on his blog:
I had written an article on the second topic last year. However, Shaikh Al-Albani makes a terrific point about how the ibaadah (worship) of the woman prior to her menstruation would make a difference. The same issue applies to ill people as well. It’s an excellent point that everyone needs to understand.
PS. He mentions the 27th night in particular as he holds that this is Laylatul Qadr. However, as I explained in this post, there is a difference of opinion of the scholars on this issue.
