Question (24 Muharram 1425/Mar.15, 2004)

Dear Brothers/Sisters In Islaam:


I was wondering if you could give me a little bit of information about Sheikh Usmah Al Khayyat, Sheikh Ali Al Huzaife, and Sheikh Ali Jabir.  (Like a little biography.)  

Also, could you give me the names of all the Imaams who currently lead prayers in both the Haram'ain (Makkah and Madinah). Shukrun!



Question (19 Muharram 1425/Mar.10, 2004)

Assalamun Alikum.

I have a question on tajweed, specifically on Idgham. If you have a nun saakinah, followed by the letter waw  ( ), you would merge the letter waw ( ) with the nun saakinah and pronounce it a slight ghunnah.

Does this rule apply for all the letters of idghaam, namely ya, ra, meem, lam, waw, nun or are there some letters of idgham that are merged with the nun saakinah and NOT pronounced with ghunnah? In my understanding, it is the difference of idgham kamil and idgham naqis.

Thank you. Wassalam


Question (18 Muharram 1425/Mar.9, 2004)

Assalamu alaikum.

Please advise me as to what is a good method to start with when getting a child of about 7 to memorise the whole Qur'an assuming that he can read the Qur' much should they memorise daily? What are some good systems of revising what one has memorised? Is it better for a child to memorise through reading or through hearing the aayat he is to memorise? 

Any other general advice about trying to fit memorisation in as well as schooling would be very useful and appreciated. 

Jazakumullahu Khairun!


Question (18 Muharram 1425/Mar.9, 2004)

Question (14 Muharram 1425/Mar.5, 2004)

Question (11 Muharram 1425/Mar.2, 2004)

Assalamu alaykum warahmatullah,
I have asked you this question but it is very harrowing for me that I didnít see the answer of it under the dates I saw. Anyway I am trying again.
My first question was : You said that "Sudais" was a nickname given to Sheikh Abdul rahman assodais. What is the meaning of  this word.
Secondly I have been hearing since childhood that most of the huffaz that we have now had memorised Qurían majid between ages of 7-15. Furthermore for any normal person this is the age of memorising the Holy Qurían. After this age they say its either impossible or very hard. Is this true?
May Allah reward you for providing us an opportunity to express our problems
and questions and receive their solutions very fast.


Question (10 Muharram 1425/Mar.1, 2004)

Assalaamu Alaykum Wa Rahmatullaahi Wa Barakaatuhu.
Not related to tajweed, but I would like to know if you guys know the name of the new imam that leads the prayer in Mecca ? He lead the taraweeh  prayers this year . Its not Shaikh Shurraim and Sudais. Do you guys know his name and know where I can find some of his recordings online?


Question (5 Muharram 1425/Feb.25, 2004)

Assalamu Aleikum.
I have a question regarding the hiding of the noon.  I know that when the fatha with tanween is followed by the letter "Waw", the tanween is merged into the letter which is one of the rules for the hiding. During the celebration of Eid, there is one Du'a that has this sentence: " ...Wa subhana ll‚hi bukrata(n) wa assila.." Some were saying with the proper rule which is: "bukrataw wa assila" (the merging) however I heard others pronouncing the noon such as : "bukratan wa assila." I would like to know: are both pronunciations correct? In other words,  is pronouncing either "bukrataw" or "bukratan" allowed in Tajweed?
May Allah reward you in finding the answers inshallah. 
Ma Salam
