Muslims

Muslims (Arabic: مُسلِم‎) are people who follow or practice Islam, a monotheistic Abrahamic religion. Muslims consider the Quran, their holy book, to be the verbatim word of God as revealed to the Islamic prophet and messenger Muhammad, may peace be upon him and his family. Muslims also generally follow the teachings and practices of Muhammad (sunnah). Those who obtain these teachings primarily from his Companions (sahaba) are called Sunni, and those who take them from his family (ahl al-bayt) are called the Shi'a.

We don't have any evidence to support or even accept such claim. Those who claim that Buddha was a prophet should present an authentic evidence. All prophets came to teach human beings to worship The Only Creator (ALLAH) but we don't find in Buddhism any mention about this main fact. Many authors write that Buddhism does not believe in God. How can such teachings be from a prophet of God?

Wassalam.

Enjoining good and forbidding evil has conditions among which that there should be a reasonable possibility that they might accept. Non Muslims need first to believe in Allah and His messenger Muhammad (SAWA) before we talk to them about performing Prayers and other Islamic life rules.

It is a human responsibility on us to help any human being to know and reach to the Truth, and there is no truth bigger than Allah and His message. We as Muslims should try our best to help others through suitable ways to make their lives better. We always need to be wise and polite.

Wassalam.

The narrations claiming that Imam Hasan (AS) or Imam Husain (AS) fought in wars under the leadership of others are not authentic at all. We don't have any narrations in our books in this regards. Some Sunni authors like Ibn Khaldoon claimed that but with out any authentic evidence or reliable source. Ibn Khuldoon himself lived in the eighth Hijra century and never witnessed nor heard from any authentic narrators.

All the life of Ahlul Bayt (AS) was great Jihad to protect Islam and Islam remained intact just because of the Jihad of Ahlul Bayt (AS).

Wassalam.

If yoga was just a physical training or sport exercise, there was no reason in asking whether it is allowed for Muslim to practice it or not. As yoga has been taken by some Hindu groups and propagated as a Hindu practice, many Muslims from the subcontinent have doubts about it as they don't want to support Hindu propaganda.

I advise you to seek the opinion of respected scholars in your area whether yoga is taken by people there as just sport or people take it as part of Hindu religious practice?

If your community or your society looks at yoga as part of Hindu practice, then you as a Muslim should not support spreading their propaganda.

If your society looks at yoga as a sport like football or basketball or swimming which has no link with Hindu or any non Muslim faith, then it will be allowed for you to practice it.

Yes, Muslims are allowed to practice yoga exercise, as long as it does not harm the body or lead to un-Islamic practices or belief. As you know, yoga in its origin is a Hindu spiritual practice, and the word means "to unite" with God. 

Simple yoga stretches are very useful, and the meditation aspect is good as well, but there is also the yoga culture that could be attached to it that a believer must stay away from, like un-Islamic chants, or that yoga alone gives one serenity and inner-peace. 

The great blessing we have as Muslims is what our five daily prayer has for us, which many of us have still not yet discovered. We should also journey into our own Islamic heritage and culture and benefit from its wonders.

With prayers for your success.

It is highly recommended to help any living being in need even animals. Helping non Muslims who are in need is very good keeping in mind the right of our own needy brothers and sisters in faith and our responsibility towards them. We should not neglect helping our own brothers and sisters in need before helping others as it said ( Charity starts at home).

We also need to avoid helping those non Muslims who use the money not in food or medicine of cloth but in alcohol or drugs etc.

I am not a mujtahid or faqih, but personally I would say that if this is what you can achieve under the circumstances, and this is what the school will allow, then that is an achievement. Many people pray one hour after awwal al-waqt (the first moment prayer comes in) without even thinking about it too much. If the school can gradually, and in a friendly way, be persuaded to allow you to pray at awwal al-waqt, then that will be even better. Maybe you can in a friendly way say "Thank you" for their accommodation, and that if they can manage to allow you to pray on time, then that would be even better, and if they can't manage that for you for now, hopefully in the future maybe they can.

If you make the room a beautiful place to pray in, and also keep it clean and tidy, that will go some way to making them more favourable towards what you need inshaAllah.

Our concept of day and night with us human beings, is not necessarily the same concept of day with Allah who Created every thing including the time before creating the earth and sky. Time was created before earth and sky and that time had got its day which is different from our day.

Shia Islam means following the teachings of the Prophet Muhammad (SAWA) narrated by the most pious and most knowledgeable who are Ahlul Bayt (AS) who are the Progeny of the Prophet. Allah (SWT) mentioned in Quran the term Shia for the followers of the Prophets. (And from his (Noah's) Shia was Ebrahim) Sura Al-Saaffaat, verse 83. Quran mentioned (in Sura Al-Qasass, verse 15) a follower of the Prophet Moosa disputing with a person from Moosa's enemies and calls the follower of Moosa as from His Shia.
