Making Up The Missed ‘Eid Prayer – Shaykh ‘AbdulQaadir al-Junayd

Is it permissible for the one who misses the ‘Eid prayer to make it up? And if so how is it to be made up?

The Permanent Committee for Scientific Research and Fatwa of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia headed by Ibn Baaz as stated in ‘Al-Fataawa’, vol. 8, pg. 306-307, nos. 2328 and 4517:

“The individual who misses the ‘Eid prayer and wants to make it up, then it is recommended for him to do so and he is to pray it according to its normal manner without being followed by a khutbah and this is what was stated by Maalik, ash-Shaafi’ee, Ahmad, an-Nakha’ee and other scholars.

The foundation for this is the statement of the Prophet صلّى اﻟﻠﻪَُّ عليه وسلّم :

‘If you come to the prayer, then approach it with tranquility and composure. Whatever you have caught from the prayer, then pray it and what has preceded you, then complete it.’

Also, what was narrated about Anas رضي اﻟﻠﻪّ عنه that:

‘If he missed the ‘Eid prayer with the Imaam, he would gather his family and servants, then ‘Abdullah Ibn Abi ‘Utbah, his servant, would lead them in prayer of two rak’ahs which he would make the takbeer in.’

And regarding the individual who arrives at the ‘Eid prayer while the Imaam is giving the khutbah, he is to listen to the khutbah then make up the prayer after. This is so that he gets the benefit of both (listening to the khutbah and making up the prayer as opposed to making up the prayer first and missing the khutbah).”

The Permanent Committee also stated:

“Whoever reaches the prayer and catches only the tashahhud with the Imaam of the two ‘Eid prayers, then he is to pray two rak’ahs after the Imaam gives the salaam and he does exactly what the Imaam does regarding the takbeer, recitation, rukoo’ and sujood.”

It is a Sunnah action to go to the ‘Eid prayer area walking – Shaykh ‘AbdulQaadir al-Junayd

[Narrated by Ibn Abi Shaybah, no, 5590]

Also, it is authentically narrated from Ja’far Ibn Barqaan that he said:

“‘Umar Ibn ‘Abdil ‘Azeez wrote encouraging them on the two ‘Eids: ‘Whoever can come to them walking, then do so.’”

[Narrated by ‘Abdur Razzaaq, no. 5664 – and this is his wording, and Ibn Abi Shaybah, no. 5604]

It is also authentically reported from Sa’eed Ibn al-Musayyib that he said:

“The Sunnah of ‘Eid al-Fitr is three.” And he mentioned that from them was: “Walking to the prayer area.”

[Narrated by al-Faryaabi, pg. 18]

Imaam at-Tirmidhee mentioned in his ‘Sunan’, vol. 2, pg. 264:

“The majority of the People of Knowledge deem the individual walking to the ‘Eid prayer to be a recommended act.”

Al-Haafidh Ibn Battal mentioned in ‘Sharh Saheeh al-Bukhaaree’, vol.2, pg. 572: “The scholars considered the people talking as the Imaam gives the khutbah as being makrooh (disliked).”

Regarding the hadeeth: “Indeed, we will give the khutbah, thus whoever wishes to stay for the khutbah is to sit and stay and whoever wishes to leave, may leave.”

The majority of the People of Knowledge are of the opinion that this hadeeth is mursal and from those scholars who were of this opinion include: Ibn Ma’een, Abu Zur’ah ar-Raazee, an-Nasaa’ee, Abu Daawood, al-Bayhaqeeand al-Waadi’ee. And mursal is from the categories of weak hadeeth.

The Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said:

Move not before the imam does. When the imam says. Allahu akbar, you say, Allahu akbar. When he says, waladh-dhalleen’ you say, aameen. In another narration, he said: Surely the imam is there to be followed[Sahih Muslim]

He also said:

Does not the one who raises his head before the imam does fear that Allah would transform his head into a donkey’s head [Sahih Muslim]

The consensus of Ahlus Sunnah regarding three principles related to Allah’s Attributes – Shaykh ‘Abdul Qaadir al-Junayd

Selected pearls from the books of the People of Knowledge and Fiqh

The consensus (amongst Ahlus Sunnah) which has been conveyed regarding three principles related to Allah’s Attributes

The First Principle: Regarding Allah the Most High’s Attributes, there is no place for the intellect (in deriving) them.

Al-Haafidh as-Sijzee mentioned in his book “Ar-Radd ‘ala man Ankara al-Harf wa as-Sawt”, pg. 121: “The Imaams have agreed that the Attributes are not derived except by way of refrainment” (i.e.refraining from affirming an Attribute for Allah until there is proof).

The Second Principle: Belief in the Attributes of Allah is by affirming their literal meaning not figurative.

Al-Haafidh Ibn ‘Abdil Barr mentioned in his book “at-Tamheed”, 145/7:

“There is a consensus amongst Ahlus Sunnah that the Attributes (of Allah) are affirmed, all of them, which have come in the Qur’aan and Sunnah and believing in them and understanding them according to their apparent meaning, not figuratively, except that they (Ahlus Sunnah) do not establish the ‘how’ of these Attributes nor do they establish or determine the reality of them.”

However, Ahlul Bid’ah, the Jahmiyyah and Mu’tazilah – all of them – and the Khawaarij deny them (Allah’s Attributes) and they do not understand any of them according to their literal meaning.

Those who deny Allah’s Attributes also claim that whoever affirms them, then he is one who has likened Allah to His creation and conversely, those who do so are considered from amongst the people who negate the One Who is worshipped according to those who affirm Allah’s Attributes.

The ‘Allaamah al-Maqreezee  mentioned in his book “al-Muwaa’idh wal I’tibaar bi Dhikr al-Khutat wal Aathaar”, 188/4:

“And all of them (Ahlus Sunnah) have narrated understanding the Attributes as they have come.”

The Third Principle: The literal meaning texts of the Attributes are known to us in light of their linguistic meaning and they are unknown to us with regards to the ‘how’ of these Attributes.

Al-Imaam adh-Dhahabee mentioned in his book “al-‘Arsh”, 195/1 whilst commenting on the statement of Imaam Maalik: “The ascension of Allah on His Throne is not unknown (its known linguistically) and the ‘how’ of it is incomprehensible”:

“And what Imaam Maalik said is what the texts have come with and this is what ALL of the Salaf were upon.”

Some Points of Contention for The One Who Celebrates The Remembrance of Al-Israa’ and Al-Mi’raaj To Be Aware Of : Shaykh ‘Abdul Qaadir al-Junayd

 The First Point: 

No authentic proof has been related affirming the specific date of al-Israa’ wal-Mi’raaj.

Al-Imaam Ibn Taymiyyah stated, as in “Zaad al Ma’ad,” 58/1: “No known proof has been established. Neither concerning its month, which part of the month it was in nor its specific date. Rather, what has been narrated related to all of this has been narrated with conflicting narrations and with discontinuous chains of narrations and thus none of them can be affirmed with surety.

● Ash-Shareef Ibn al-Ameer as-San’aanee said in “At-Tanweer”, 7710: “It is a specific night yet nothing from the authentic Sunnah has been narrated specifying when exactly it is.”

 The Second Point: 

The scholars have differed concerning the time of its occurance and there are numerous opinions regarding this.

It is said that it is in Rajab. It is said that it is in Rabee al-Awwal, just as it is said it is in Rabee ath-Thaani.

It is also said that it is in Ramadhaan and it is said that it is in Shawwal. Also, it is said that it is in Dhil Qa’dah.

Some of them say it was in the begining of the month, others say the middle and others say the later part of the month.

Many of the scholars have pointed out these conflicting views:

  • From the Hanafis: al-Mulla ‘Ali Qaaree and Abu al-Fadhl al-Aloosee
  • From the Maalikis: Ibn ‘Abdil Barr and Abu ‘Abdillah al-Qurtubee
  • From the Shaafi’ees: an-Nawawee, Ibn Katheer and Ibn Hajr al-Asqalaanee
  • From the Hanbalis: Ibn al-Jawzee and al-‘Uthaymeen.

The Third Point: 

The weakest position with regards to specifying (when it took place) is the position which posits that it was in the month of Rajab.

Abu al-Khattaab Ibn Dahiyah al-Maaliki stated in “Adaa mal Wajab min Bayyan Wadh’i al Waadh’iyoon fi Rajab,” pg. 110: “Some of the storytellers mention that al-Israa’ was in Rajab and according to the people of Praise and Criticism (Scholars of Hadeeth) this is without a doubt a lie.”

Also, Ibn al-‘Attar ash-Shaafi’ee mentioned in “Hukm Sawm Rajab wa Sha’baan wa Maa Ahdatha Feehima”, pg.34: “From those who considered the hadeeth of al-Israa’ and al-Mi’raaj happening on the 27th to be weak include:

  • From the Maalikis: Abu al-Khattaab al-Kalbee
  • From the Shaafi’ees: Ibn al-‘Attar, Ibn Katheer and Ibn Hajr al-Asqalaanee
  • From the Hanbalis: Ibn Taymiyyah, Ibn Rajab, Ibn Baaz and al-‘Uthaymeen.

The Fourth Point:

Celebrating the rememberance of al-Israa’ and al-Mi’raaj has not been narrated from the Prophet صلى الله عليه و سلم, nor his Companions, nor the Taabi’een, nor the Taabi’ at-Taabi’een, nor was it an action of the Imaams of the well known madhaahib: Abu Haneefah, Maalik, ash-Shaafi’ee or Ahmad.

The previously mentioned individuals are the example for the individual who does not celebrate al-Israa’ wal-Mi’raaj.

However, concerning the one who celebrates it, who is his example in doing such?

Without a doubt, his example is the Raafidhah Shi’a and those who follow them from the extremist Sufis!

The Fifth Point: 

Whoever has the zeal and vigor to do good deeds and to increase in doing such, then let him ask himself:

“How many actions of obedience have clearly come in the Qur’aan and authentic Sunnah and I do not do them, nor do I exert myself in trying to do so?

Verily, it is shameful that I fall short and am lazy in those acts of worship which have come in the Qur’aan and authentic Sunnah, yet I exert myself in that which has neither come in the Qur’aan or authentic Sunnah, nor did the Prophet صلى الله عليه و سلم or his Companions who came after him do so!”

Summarized from the book “At-Tadhkeer al-Baahith bi Annhu Laa Yasihu fi Tahdeed Taareekh Haaditha al-Israa’ wal-Mi’raaj Athar wa Laa Hadeeth” by Shaykh ‘Abdul Qaadir al-Junayd.  Translated by Abu Afnaan Muhammad ‘Abdullah

Making the palms of the hands and the fingers face the direction of the ears when raising the hands in prayer contradicts the sunnah

Imam Ibn Qayyim al Jawziyah-May Allah have mercy upon him-stated in his book ‘Raising the hands in prayer’, pg 281:

‘What is recommended is that his palms face towards the direction of the Qiblah and that he does not make them face towards his ears. Our scholars (the Hanbalis) and the Shafi’is have cleary mentioned this and from those who mentioned this is the author of ‘al Tatimma’.

However, regarding what many of the common people do from making their palms and fingers face their ears, it opposes the sunnah.

The Islaamic Position Regarding Protests and Demonstrations – Shaykh ‘AbdulQaadir al-Junaid [Audio|Ar-En]

The Islaamic Position Regarding Protests and Demonstrations by Shaykh 'AbdulQaadir al-Junaid

The Islaamic Position Regarding Protests and Demonstrations by Shaykh ‘AbdulQaadir al-Junaid

Bismillaah wa -Alhamdulillaah wa Salaatu wa Salaam ‘alaa Rasulillaah ‘amma ba’d

The Noble Shaykh ‘AbdulQaadir Ibn Muhammad al-Junaid (May Allaah Preserve Him), from the scholars of Ad-Dammam, K.S.A., delivered a LIVE tele-lecture with Muwahhideen Publications on Thursday 21stFebruary 2013. The Shaykh is recognized and recommended by the major scholars of our time, the likes of Shaykh ‘Ubayd al-JaabireeShaykh Muhammad Ibn Haadee al-Madkhalee, and many others (May Allaah preserve them)

Listen / Download Mp3 Here (Time 93:33)

Shaykh ‘Abdul Qaadir al-Junaid (hafidhahullaah) commenced this comprehensively beneficial lecture by asking Allaah to benefit us with this sitting and to make us from those who love the truth, follow what Allaahand His Messenger says and that He makes us from those who put His Speech and that of His Messenger(sallAllaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) before everything else.

Our Shaykh affirmed the fact that many Muslims are engaged in protests and demonstrations throughout the world and some of them desire by this the dunya while some seek to topple the ruler due to injustice that he might have committed, and will not stop until he is removed. However, this does not change their situation and ends up resulting in millions of deaths, loss of wealth and property. This might last for years if the ruler is not removed and as a result, the ruler may execute an armed counter-reaction, which would lead to even more deaths and losses.

The Shaykh then proceeded to say that if we use our intellects, we would see that this blessed Sharee’ahexplained even the intricate matters of using the toilet. So would it make sense that a great affair such as governance, which affects all Muslims, that Allaah would leave us without guidance, leaving each man to himself to act as he sees fit or to follow his desires?

He then said that if we were to return to the books of the Sunnah we would see that this matter of governorship and how the Muslim should deal with the rulers has been thoroughly addressed. He further mentioned that this issue has also been explained in the books of ‘Aqeedah. However, the fault lies with us, as many do not inquire about what is requested of them in light of the Sharee’ah before engaging in such matters and secondly, they do not study the ahkaam related to these affairs.

Our Shaykh then went on to extract some benefits and rulings regarding the manhaj in dealing with the rulers from three ahadeeth of the Prophet (sallAllaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) where he advised us on what to do if we were to encounter unjust rulers. The remedies include having patience with them until we meet him(sallAllaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam)  at the hawdh, carrying out their rights while seeking our rights from Allaah and listening and obeying even if they were to beat our backs and take our wealth.

Next, Shaykh al-Junaid (hafidhahullaah) commented on some reasons why protests are prohibited in Islaam. From them are:

  • 1.      They contradict the Sharee’ah
  • 2.      They resemble the way of the kuffaar
  • 3.      They encourage injustice and sin

This sitting was indeed filled with immense benefit and serves as a beautiful clarification concerning this pertinent and crucial issue as our Shaykh ‘Abdul Qaadir clearly explains each point bringing the necessary evidences from the Book and the Sunnah. A must listen for the one seeking clarity!

We ask Allaah to guide us to the truth and make it easy for us to follow and that He saves us all from falling into sin and transgression.

The fitnah of As Shahawaat (Base Desires) – Shaykh Abdul Qadir al Junaid

What is meant by this type of fitnah is the fitnah of the desires which leads to and encourages one to engage in and commit sins or disobedience to Allah.

This type of fitnah is very dangerous especially in our times because of the fact that this type of fitnah is more appealing and closer to those who have weak souls. Thus, the (weak) individual gives in the first time, then gets drawn in to this type of fitnah and establishes a strong foothold in committing sins. Thus, his iman (faith) weakens or even leaves.

Some examples of this type of fitnah are: the desire for wealth, immoralities, amusement, food and drink, clothes, and the desire to imitate the kuffar and sinners. For example, the lust for wealth leads to falling into numerous sins like the bloodshed which emanates between warring countries or between tribes, breaking into people’s homes and businesses or their cars, embezzling people’s money by unlawful means or prohibited means like fraud or selling things which are prohibited.

Lust for immoralities leads to committing unlawful acts like rape, fornication or adultery, homosexuality, masturbation, luring minors or weak minded individuals into committing inappropriate acts. It also leads to watching pornographic channels, videos, on the internet or magazines. It also leads to harassing or following women in shopping malls or with video enhanced networking devices like that are included in mobile phones and computer cameras. In addition to these vices, this type of fitnah leads to lethargy with regards to performing the obligatory actions in addition to leniency with regards to them and even leads to eventually leaving them completely, not performing them at all. An individual may be chaste, have fear of Allah, be religious and then open the door to this type of fitnah and as a result become corrupt and then be destroyed.
