Sukainah’s questions to her dad…

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Assalamu Alaikum.

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:

Shaikh al-Albaani’s Daughter asking her Father about Devoting Oneself to Reciting the Quraan to the Exclusion of other Acts of Worship in Ramadaan

How does a Menstruating Woman Worship During the Night of Decree?

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.


Website: Translations from the Works of Shaikh Al-Albani

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Assalamu Alaikum.

Okay so it’s a blog, not a full-fledged website but it’s really good nonetheless, maashaa-Allah.

The brother (may Allah reward him greatly) is translating various parts of Shaikh Nasiruddin Al-Albani’s (rahimahullah) works. Shaikh Al-Albani, for those of you who are unaware, was one of the greatest scholars of this century and a heavyweight in the field of hadeeth.

By the way, Al-Albani means “the Albanian” as he was of Albanian origin.

I’d especially recommend this blog for:

1) Those who are interested in knowing more about the Shaikh.

2) Those interested in the field of hadeeth.

3) Those who wish to get a closer look at the lives of the scholars.

4) Those who just love to read.

Oh and here’s an incredibly funny post:



When is Laylatul Qadr?

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Assalamu Alaikum.

This is a common question, isn’t it?

And there are so many answers….

Do you know what the correct answer is?

Let me tell you: It doesn’t matter when it is.
