Q: Sometimes I have doubts as to whether I passed wind or not; what is the ruling with regards to Wudhu?

A:
If you are sure of passing wind, then only does your Wudhu break. That is by hearing or smell. If you did not hear or smell the passing of wind, the Wudhu will be intact.

And Allah Knows Best

 

Q: If one is doubtful in Salaah - as to whether one is in the third or fourth Rakaat, what should one do?

A:
If doubt has occured for the first time ever in Salaah; then one should repeat the Salaah.

If doubt occurs often; one should apply prudent judgment and practise on that which one’s mind is inclined to. For examle, if you strongly feel that you in the fourth Rakaat - then practice on that.

Furthermore, after applying prudent judgment if doubt still remains, then practice on the lesser of the two amounts; in this case that will be three rakaats.

When acting on the lesser number, one should sit for Tashahhud after each Rakaat and make Sajdah Sahu at the end.

 

Q: What is the ruling about cutting the hair and trimming the nails in the first ten days of Dhul-Hijjah?

A:
If a person is performing Udhiya (sacrificing an animal) then it is Mustahab (recommended) for him or her to refrain from cutting the hair and clipping the nails from the 1st of Dhul-Hijjah until when the person's animal is sacrificed.

 

Q: Do children have to make Qurbani?

A:
Qurbani is not wajib (obligatory) on a child who has not yet reached the age of puberty, even if he/she is in possession of wealth. If a parent/guardian wish to make Nafl Qurbani for a minor, they should do so on their own expense. It will be sinful to use the money of a minor child for Qurbani.

And Allah Knows Best

 

Q: On whom is Qurbani obligatory?

A: There are 3 conditions for Qurbaani to be Wajib:

1. Iqamat: This means being a Muqeem(non-traveller). Qurbani is therefore not wajib upon a Musaafir (traveller) - one who has undertaken a journey of 78 kilometres or more, and intends staying in one place for less than 15 days.
2. Buloog: This means puberty. Hence qurbani is not wajib on a minor, even if he/she is in possession of wealth.
3.Financial Means: Possessing Nisaab or wealth equivalent to the value of Nisaab in excess of one’s basic needs and debts on any of the three days of Qurbani. [The Nisaab amount at the beginning of September 2016 is R5774.55 (612.36 grams of Silver)]

N.B. It is not necessary that this amount be in one’s possession for a complete lunar year.

And Allah Knows Best

 

Q: How old should the qurbani animal be?

A:

goat/sheep/ram - 1 year or older
bull/buffalo/cow/ox - 2 years or older
camel - 5 years or older
Animals younger than the prescribed age are not suitable for Qurbani.

A sheep that is more than six months old but less than a year, and physically appears to be a year old will suffice for Qurbani.

A cow, bull, buffalo or camel will suffice for seven persons provided no single share is less than one seventh and the intention of all partners is to attain reward and not merely to benefit from the meat.

Animals chosen for Qurbani should be healthy and free from defects.
