:bism:


:salam:

We are officially launching the quiz now with the first question. Whichever team answers it correctly first will be eligible for asking the next question.


This thread is strictly for questions and answers only. No discussion is allowed on this thread, except a clarification on a question or an answer.


Only one question must be asked at a time. No question should be asked until the previous one has been answered correctly, or three attempts have been made.




To keep the competition fair, we will have some simple rules:





  • All members of IslamicBoard will be divided into two teams: Brothers and Sisters
  • Staff members cannot participate in the quiz. They can only post a question if there is a need, or if there is a tie between the teams.
  • First question will be asked by one of the staff members. Whichever teams answers it correctly can post the next question directed to the other team.
  • Each team can have a maximum of three attempts to answer a question, each answer coming from a different member of the team. One person cannot attempt the same question twice. So discuss the answer among your team mates before posting.
  • If a team could not answer a question correctly, they will not get the chance to ask the next question. Only the team that answers correctly can post the next question.
  • Each right answer will earn your team 2 points. Each wrong answer will earn the questioning team 1 point.
  • No Googling allowed. You cannot search for direct answers, but you can read a book, an article, chapter etc or consult your knowledgeable friends (they should also not google it), or watch lectures, or go through previous threads on IB etc.
  • Everyone should mention how he/she found the answer. Be honest. Say whether you read it in a book, learnt it at school, heard it in a lecture or whatever. Don't cheat.
  • Participants are not allowed to edit their answers once they have posted.
  • Do not ask questions related to topics on which scholars have differed in their opinions.

Asalamualykum,

The answer is yes.

You can read Tashahhud 4 times in salaah.

For example, in Zuhur when you pray the 4 rakat of sunnah and 4 rakat of faraz.

The 4 rakat of sunnah you will read it twice

& the 4 rakat of faraz you will read it twice again = 4 times.

So my answer is yes.

I believe the below dua is called the Tashahhud?

Attahiyyaatu lillaahi wassalawaatu wattayyibatu. Assalaamu 'alayka ayyuhan-Nabiyyi warahmatullaahi wabarakaatuh. Assalaamu 'alyna wa 'ala 'ibaadillaahis saaliheen. Ash-hadu an laa ilaaha illallaah wa ash-hadu anna Muhammadan 'abduhu wa rasooluh.

I used https://www.kalamullah.com/salaah.html to find out which section of the salaah is called 'Tashahhud'

Jazahka Allah.

Sorry, that is not the correct explanation. Sunnah and Fardh are two different prayers. We mean it should be in a single prayer, either a single Fardh prayer or a single Sunnah prayer?


^ Yes, the Tashahhud Dua is correct.

A person joinging the Magrib prayer in congregation joins on the second rakh but after imaam finishes ruku

The first Tashahhud counted when he joins after ruku
Now imam stands up and prays the 3rd rakah but for the late comer its the first rakha and second Tashahhud
And it continues

You are on the right track. However, that's not the answer. What I meant by given name is his actual first name.

Ok then, this question is more about Islamic history or lets say Islamic Politics (or some wierd term). I think it isn't that hard, so throwing a bone out there.

Question:What two races (that were not Muslim at that time) have been specifically been mentioned by the Prophet (pbuh) in telling us that we should maintain peaceful relations with them.

Ok, can I say something, just to clarify something about the question. I am not referring to people that he was just friendly with, I am talking about the two races that he himself, and the early Caliphs kept total peace with, and did not partake in war with. As I said, they were non-Muslims.

Sisters have to answer to the question wholly. "Abbyssinians" was only half of the answer.

And as the rules say:

•If a team could not answer a question correctly, they will not get the chance to ask the next question. Only the team that answers correctly can post the next question.
So; if sisters can´t find the answer, they can´t make next question.

Correct!
-----------

Narrated from Abi Sukainah: The Prophet (ﷺ) said: "Let the Abyssinians alone as long as they let you alone, and let the Turks alone as long as they leave you alone." (Source: Sunan Abu Dawud 4302)


Narrated Abdullah ibn Amr ibn al-'As: The Prophet (ﷺ) said: "Leave the Abyssinians alone as long as they leave you alone, for it is only the Abyssinian with short legs who will seek to take out the treasure of the Ka'bah." (Sunan Abi Dawud 4309)


(Some Narrarations in Musnad Ahmed state that this Abyssinian named Zul-Suwayqatayn, will destroy the Kaabah after the death of all Muslims, stone by stone. http://www.discoveringislam.org/destruction_of_kaba.htm)

Sahih International: You will not find a people who believe in Allah and the Last Day having affection for those who oppose Allah and His Messenger, even if they were their fathers or their sons or their brothers or their kindred. Those - He has decreed within their hearts faith and supported them with spirit from Him. And We will admit them to gardens beneath which rivers flow, wherein they abide eternally. Allah is pleased with them, and they are pleased with Him - those are the party of Allah. Unquestionably, the party of Allah - they are the successful.58:22

This Q is still unanswered.

Alright, The answer is Umamah (r.a) , the daughter of Zainab (r.a) and grand- daughter of Nabi صلى الله عليه وسلم.
