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.

Lecture: Menses at the time of Laylatul Qadr

Assalamu Alaikum.

This isn’t a full lecture, rather it is the Q and A part.

[In this post, a sister commented that some women feel devastated when they menstruate during the last 10 nights because they feel that they missed Laylatul Qadr. Dr. Saleh As-Saleh (rahimahullah) talks about this issue.]

What can the menstruating woman do in Ramadan (apart from twiddling her thumbs, of course)?

Asslamu Alaikum.

Twiddle.

Twiddle.

Twiddle.

That’s what happens to many a woman when that time of month strikes her at this time of month. They think that Ramadan is over and start to twiddle their thumbs.

Two sisters asked me what a menstruating woman could do during Ramadan so here goes:
