Lesson 007

(Baabu`l-Aaneeyah)

[Animal Skin/Leather]

  • 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.

  • 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 001

[Knowledge, Author’s Biography and Introduction]

[7 May 2008]
  • Prerequisites to Seeking Knowledge

If you travel from somewhere far, it feels as if you have lost that time. In reality, if a person is sincere, then even something mundane as coming to a talk, or driving a car can be a means of earning reward with Allaah subhaanahu wa ta’ala.

The Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam said: “Whoever goes down a path searching for Knowledge, Allah (swt) will make it easy for him the road to Paradise”.
[Muslim]

So one has to check their intention; thus thinking that it is not a waste of time to travel to talks, but a means of earning reward with Allaah subhaanahu wa ta’ala with sincerity.
