Reciting Qur’an and manzil during menstruation

Will it be permissible to recite certain verses of the Qur’an during haid if they had been specifically prescribed for me for ruqya treatment, to help protect myself.

I have been doing self ruqya for a long time and when I stop my treatment during haid my symptoms get worse. I carry on with adkhars and the manzil . But I feel this isn’t sufficient as my reactions worsen after I have a break.

I can feel the improvement Alhamdulillah when I’m reciting, but after days of haid when I haven’t been doing the amal I feel weakened. I start getting reactions again, I get bruises and scratch marks on my body.

I have been advised to recite a portion of surah Baqarah daily. Surah Yasin verse 9 and surah Tawbah verse 9 (and some other verses). I wanted to know if it would be permissible for me to recite these whilst in state of haid with the intention of treatment/protection.

Also, If any other verses are specifically prescribed for my condition, would I be able to recite those, with intention of treatment/protection. Some amals are prescribed to be done continuously for 40 days, I can’t complete this as haidh starts before I can complete it.

It has not been possible for me to get someone to recite over me whilst I’m in state of haid.

And lastly would I be able to recite the following 6 verses of shifaa during haid, with intention of treatment/dua to Allah (swt);

Surah Tawbah v:14, Surah Yunus v:57, surah Nahl v:69, Surah Najm v:82, Surah Shu’ara v:80, Surah Fussilat v:44

Question regarding dua between two sajdas for Hanafi madhab

Assalamualaikum Dr. Abdur Rahman Sahab,

1) According to Hanafi madhab can I recite the following dua in between two sajdas:
اللَّهُمَّ اغْفِرْ لِي، وَارْحَمْنِي، وَاهْدِنِي، وَاجْبُرْنِي، وَعَافِنِي، وَارْزُقْنِي، وَارْفَعْنِي
2) Also should we only have to do dua in Arabic or any other language in sajda and in between two sajdas

Thank you,

Home Purchase ‘ Options

Asalaamualaikum wa rahmatullah

I am a Muslim married Male with three young daughters under 7, living in a rented two bedroom property, The property has a number of issues including mould, which I am constantly fighting against, so we will need to move, and with 3 children ideally to a larger property. I have never owned a property and have been renting for the last 25 years. Rents in London are significantly higher for 3 bedroom properties, and would be challenging. I work full time, I am not likely to receive government housing, and waiting lists for affordable housing can take decades in this area. A relative owns a 3 bedroom property with their two sisters each owning a third. This property was inherited from their relative. The property value is approximately £800,000 and it is currently rented out.

One of the owners wishes to sell their 1/3 share of the Property, and would give us the option first before it goes on the open market. My relative would gift her 1/3 of the property for free. The final third would be rented from the other . If we were to acquire the property we would live exclusively in the property, just us. With regards to funding the costs of the 1/3 that I would have to pay for. I have viewed conventional mortgages and compared them with the “Islamic finance” models – GateHouse, Al Rayan etc.. purely from a cost comparison point of view. The difficulty is that the cost difference between the two means the Islamic finance option would put me from a monthly budgeting perspective at a considerable stretch, with the rent of the additional 3rd on top taking it out of my budget.

1. I am trying to understand if there are recommended organisations for such home purchases, and whether they are shariah compliant? They seem to have a model which leads to around £60,000 extra paid over the same time period.

2. I’m trying to understand if I am missing any valid individual dispensation for other options, based on circumstances for usually unacceptable finance (conventional mortgage)?

3. I’m looking for advice on any other options I have been making frequent dua for our circumstances to change and to have a place of security for my family. It seems to be an amazing opportunity to remain in London, where employment opportunities for my work are centred. If I’ve missed a question which may be relevant please feel free to answer it. Happy to provide further detail.

May Allah reward you well

Trying to do good, but find myself slipping. Seeking advice.


As salaam alaikum,

Dear brother/sister,

I honestly don’t know where to start. It’s been 2 years now that ive been a practicing muslimah alhamdulillah. I wasn’t always stable though…I had my ups and downs. I am engaged to a wonderful and pious man. So everything seemed to be alright…but now I feel like everything is collapsing. Ive waited for 3 years to do the study Ive always wanted to do. They finally accepted me and this is my first year. But things are not going wel with my study..I feel like Im not going to make it this year and that wil be another year spent. Plus..i have no other choice after way out. So thats really making me depressed at the moment.

Also..I want to wear the hijab asap but my parents won’t let me. I tried to wear it a year ago but they wouldnt let me…it was impossible at that moment. And lets not even mention my health…Ive been soo sick lately…everything hurts, my whole body..I feel so weak..I have a lot of health problems lately.

And my husband (I dont live with him yet) expects a lot from me. He has always been a faithful and pious man…he doesnt miss any prayer…he reads a lot..he knows a lot about islam. But me…I am a failure..i truly am. It’s been a month now that I havent been praying…I had a study loan because I couldnt pay my study..I dont read, I dont practice so often. And I have the feeling that because of my behaviour towards the Lord…I am in this position now. I am losing a lot..and I dont know how to handle it cause problems are just about to start. I am sure that when my parents find out that I am gonna wear the hijab and dont want a wedding party, they will make things very difficult for me.

People keep telling me…make the prayer..those things I already know…thats not what I want to know. I want to know how I can get out of this position and how I can increase my imaan…cause thats where all the problems start I guess.

I know this story is too long…I just hope someone can at least give me some good advice for I have no friends and can’t be honest about this to my husband.

I am looking forward to an answer.

jazakallah khair.

Helping mother in-law in old age overcome her problems



My mother in law is a 70 years old lady, she has no medical problems, all her children are wealthy, educated and married, she currently lives with one of her sons and literally travels the world every three to four times a year. She does a lot around the house and is very active, but over the past 6 to 7 years she has been gossiping, and very negative about everything around her. She changes every positive into a negative. It has come to the point that it is causing stress in our relationship as everything we do seems we haven’t done anything. At her age it is hard to explain to her how to be more appreciatve and thankful to the blessings she has. Is there any hadith or duas to help her understand the positives in her life?

Clarification on Purificatory Bath and Regular Discharge


As salamualykum wa rahmatuhali wabarakatuhu!

1) Can you please give a step by step guide for the ghusl required after menstruation and janaba separately. Also, please do mention the duas (if any) according to the hanafi fiqh.

I have heard many different methods some requiring to read dua and others don’t, I m really confused now and if i did the ghusl wrong would i have the repeat the prayers (even if i used that methods for years?) Please help.

2) I have a very steady flow of white fluid everyday(except for menstruation days). Considering the fact that it breaks the wudu makes it really difficult for me to refresh wudu for every prayer.(i would have to refresh it every 2- 3 hrs) when i m traveling/working can i just pray without refreshing my wudu?

3) After the wudu is performed, i have this sensation of air passing by from the front happens almost every time after wudu. would it be considered under the same ruling as passing gas? I have heard that shaitan pulls a string which causes these sensations/ little bubbles coming out from front and behind. so it should be ignored. can you please shed some light on this.
