Question

 I received the following as a broadcasted message, and would just like to know what is its authenticity:

Menstruation in Ramadan..It is related in a Hadith that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said if a woman reads (at her time of haidh – menstruation).

Subhanaka astaghfirullahal lathi la ilaha illa huwal hayyul qayyum

70 times at the time of every salah or any other istighfar even if it be astagfirullah only, then she will get the reward of reading 1000 rak’ats of salah, 70 of her sins are forgiven, her status is raised in the eyes of Allah and for every letter of istighfar, she gets a nur and for every vein in the body, one hajj and umrah is written!”

The fasting person and Nabi Musa (‘alayhis salam)

Question

Please verify the following: 

Once Musa (‘alayhis salam) asked Allah ‘Ta’ala

O  Allah! You have granted me the honour and privilege of talking to you directly, Have you given this privilege to any other person?

Allah Ta’ala replied, O Musa! during the last period I am going to send an Ummah, who will be the Ummah of Muhammad (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam) with dry lips, parched tongues, emaciated body with eyes sunken deep into their sockets, with livers dry and stomachs suffering the pangs of hunger. They will call out to me (in du’a) they will be much much closer to me than you.

O Musa! while you speak to me there are 70000 veils between you and me but at the time of iftar there will not be a single veil between me and the fasting Ummati of Mohammed (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam) .

O Musa! I have taken upon myself the responsibility that at the time of iftar I will never refuse the du’a of a fasting person!

What to recite at iftar

Question

A friend sent me the following. Could you please verify?

1. Ibn ‘Umar (radiyallahu ‘anhuma) said: When the Messenger of Allah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) broke his fast, he would say:

ﺫَﻫَﺐَ ﺍﻟﻈَّﻤَﺄُ ﻭَﺍﺑْﺘَﻠَّﺖْ ﺍﻟْﻌُﺮُﻭﻕُ ﻭَﺛَﺒَﺖَ ﺍﻷ‌َﺟْﺮُ ﺇِﻥْ ﺷَﺎﺀَ ﺍﻟﻠَّﻪُ

Dhahabaz-zama-u, wabtallatil-‘uruqu wa thabatal-ajru insha Allah

(Thirst has gone, the veins are moist, and the reward is assured, if Allah wills).”

This is the reliable du’a.

2. Do not recite this famous Du’a while breaking the Fast:

“Allahumma Laka Sumtu Wa ‘Ala Rizqika Aftartu”

This narration is mentioned in Sunan Abu Dawud, Book of Fasting. The narrator of this narration, Mu’adh bin Zohra is weak.

This Du’a is not proven from the Sunnah of Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam), not proven from the Sahih Hadith. Read More »
