Bismillaahi`r-Rahmaani`r-Raheem

Alhamdulillaah, wa`s-salaatu wa`s-salaamu ‘alaa rasoolillaah, wa ba’ad:

Lesson 007

(Baabu`l-Aaneeyah)

[Animal Skin/Leather]

[18/06/2008]

  • Utensils of Gold and Silver

The Dhaahireeyyah, Ibn ‘Abdu`l-Barr, an-Nawaawee, ibn Qudaamah, rahimahumAllaah, they all said that the opinion that the utensils of gold and silver may not be used for anything (including doing wudoo’ etc.) was the majority opinion, and some of them (such as Ibn ‘Abdu`l-Barr) said it is based on Ijmaa’ before another scholar came and differed with them (Dawood – ?).

Thus, perhaps it is safer to follow the opinion that it is not permissible to use utensils of gold and silver for anything. Allaah knows best.

If the utensils are plated with gold and silver, then they take the same ruling as that of utensils made of gold and silver, unless they are soldered due to a need.

Bismillaahi`r-Rahmaani`r-Raheem

Eating the Food Cooked by a Disbeliever

Al-hamdu lillah (praise be to Allah). There is no objection for a Muslim to eat from food that a kaafir (unbeliever), whether polytheist or otherwise, has cooked, as the issue of cooking does not involve slaughtering according to Islamic guidelines so that we would require the person to be from ahl il-kitaab (People of the Book) among the kuffar. In fact, it is only a matter of cooking, so the only issues that concern us are cleanliness and the avoidance of najasa (impurity), and likewise that nothing haram (forbidden) is mixed with the food such as khamr (wine or alcoholic beverages) or lard.

May Allah protect us from harm, evil and the things he has forbidden (al-muharramaat).

Lesson 005

(Baabu `Ahkaamu`l-Mi`aah)

[Ruling on Madhee and Blood]

[04.06.2008]

  • A Detailed Analysis of Purification from a Dog’s Saliva

The Hanaabilah categorized impurities into three categories, from which one of them is:

1. Najaasah Mughalladah – Severe, because of the way in which you have to purify yourself from it. The saliva of the dog falls under this category.

The Hanaabilah then made Qiyaas on this issue and said that all of the dog is also impure. They further stated that the swine is also impure as it is worse than the dog and if the dog is considered by the Shar’eeyyah to have this kind of severe ruling than the swine should also have a ruling similar to it. Although this opinion is perhaps weaker and only restricted to the saliva of the dog because the saliva was specifically mentioned in the hadeeth and the Prophet sallAllaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam did not make a general statement.

Lesson 004

(Baabu `Ahkaamu`l-Mi`aah)

Purifying from Various Najaasaat

[28.05.2008]

[Note: The online class tapes for this lesson are missing, so handwritten notes had to suffice… some explanatory points by Ustaadh Fraz may be missing. Translation of this lesson’s texts has been taken from books.]

Imaam ibn Qudaamah rahimahullaah called this chapter “How to Purify the Impurities of the Dog and the Swine.”

وتغسل نجاسة الكلب والخنزير سبعاً إحداهن بالتراب، .13

Imaam ibn Qudaamah wrote, “The filth of the dog and the swine should be cleaned seven times, six times with water and one time with dust.”

Narrated Aboo Hurayrah radiAllaahu ‘anhu: Allaah’s Messenger sallAllaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam said: “The purification of the utensil belonging to one of you, if it has been licked by a dog, is to wash it seven times, using surface soil for the first cleaning.”
[Muslim]

In another narration of Muslim, he has “He should pour out the contents”. At-Tirmidhee also has “…using surface soil for first or last (cleaning)”.

There is another Hadeeth concerning this matter, which states that it should be washed with soil the eighth time. Both of these Hadeeth are Saheeh (authentic), but they seem to contradict.
