Salaat Niyyath to be said out loud or not ?
I wanted to ask that when we stand for fardh prayers, do we have to verbally say our niyyath, or can we just start the prayer as long as in our heart we know what we our praying. Meaning, do I have to verbally say “I am praying 4 rak’aats fardh of Zuhr prayer” etc, or if I know it in my heart can I just start prayer without verbally saying the niyyath out loud?
It’s not necessary to orally make an intention. You can start the prayer if you know in your mind which prayer you are praying, in which direction and for whom you are praying.

Our father died in 1990. He was the owner and editor of a newspaper. He left behind our mother three brothers and three sisters. Before his death, he gave four plots each to his sons and daughters in a colony. He left behind some residential plots, few buildings, agricultural land, bank deposits and two cars. After the death of father the business is being run by brothers, [sisters gave logistical and financial support to the business in initial years]. The brothers have purchased property from the profit of the same business. The inheritance of the father has not been distributed yet. My question is: (1) What is the share of each of us in father’s property? (2) Will the four plots given before the death be included in inheritance? Brothers say that your shares are given by the father that are four plots, now you do not have any rights. Is it correct as per Shariah? (3) What is the share of sisters in newspaper business? Can we ask for share in profits of last 21 years? (4) Can we sisters have share in the property purchased from business?
