Abu Mahdhurah’s (Rady Allahu ‘anhu) Adhan

Question:

Asalaamualaykum,
I came across a hadith in Sahih Muslim narrated by Abu Mahdura, and was told by one of my teachers that it is the adhan of the Shafii Madhab. I was curious to know if this is the official adhan and in what regions this adhan is practiced.  If it is not the adhan of the madhab, then can we still call this adhan seeing that it is a sunnah of the Prophet salAllahualayhi wasalaam?
jazakAllahkhayr.

Can a Woman Menstruate While Pregnant?

Question:

Assalamu Alaikum,

What is the hukm if one gets vaginal bleeding while she is pregnant? Is it considered menstruation?

Country: Qatar

Answer:

Wa alaykum salam wa rahmatuLlahi wa barakatuHu,

In the Shafi’i School, a woman can be considered to menstruate during pregnancy. Imam Nawawi stated,

والأظهر أن دم الحامل…حيض

“The relied-upon view is that the blood of a pregnant woman…is menstruation.”

Therefore, if a woman gets vaginal bleeding during pregnancy, that meets the requirements of menstruation, then it may be considered menstruation. (Tuhfat al-Muhtaj v. 1, p. 411-12)

And Allah knows best.

Limiting the Tasbih and Salah ‘ala al-Nabi Because of Time Constraints

Question:

Assalamualaikum,

I want to know (1) whether is it ok to always read tasbih in ruku and sujud one time only during fard and also sunnah prayer? (2) And, at the last tashahud, is it ok to offer salam immediately after reciting salawat on Nabi sallallahu alaihi wassalam and his family (Allahumma salli ala Sayidina Muhammad wa ala ali Muhammad) whether in fard salah or sunnah salah? I always do the (1) above because I recite slowly in salah, and I do (2) with the reason to make the salah short due to time constraint in work place. Jazakallahu khair for your response.

Does bleeding break wudu?

Question:

Does bleeding break one’s wudu?

Country: United States

Answer:

Four things invalidate the ablution. They are:

1) Something exiting from the front or rear private parts (except for sexual fluid [mani]).

2) Losing consciousness, except for sleeping firmly seated.

3) Skin to skin contact between a man and a woman, except for an unmarriageable relative or a pre-pubescent child.

4) Touching the privates with the inner part of one’s hand.

(Minhaj al-Talibin v. 1, p. 86-87)

Any of these four invalidates the ablution. Therefore, bleeding does not invalidate it.

And Allah knows best.
