Salah (Prayers)

Salah ("worship", ‏صلاة‎; pl. ‏صلوات‎ ṣalawāt; also salat), or namāz (Persian: نَماز‎) in some languages, is one of the Five Pillars in the faith of Islam and an obligatory religious duty for every Muslim (Male & Female, with certain exemptions based on Taqwa). It is a physical, mental, and spiritual act of worship that is observed five times every day at prescribed times.

It is not haraam to recite Quran in a state of janabah unless it is the sajdah ayahs, however it is nicer and more respectful to be in a state of ritual purity.

Allah does not punish people for things they do due to accident or forgetfulness.

However you should make up the prayers done in the state of janabah.

You should make up the missed prayers and you can also personally ask Allah for forgiveness during du'a.

No, as far as you are still alive. You must perform your own Qadha as soon as you can during your life. If a person passes away before completing all his Qadha prayers and fast and Hajj, some one else will be allowed to perform the Qadha on his behalf whether with payment or with out payment.

You can ask or pay during your life to some one to perform Qadha after your death but this will not free you from the responsibility of the Qadha until you perform it yourself during your life. If you die before performing your own Qadha worship, you have to suffer a lot till Qadha is completed after your death.

Wassalam.

Yes, she has to perform Qadha for Morning Prayer which she missed after being clear from the menstruation. She should have performed Tayammum and prayed on the time of Morning Prayer if Ghusl was not possible.

The meaning of worshiping Allah (SWT) is not limited to reading Quran or Tafseer or praying Salah but it is much wider up to the extend of including all useful life activities including studying, working, eating, exercising, resting etc as far as the activity is done for noble cause e.g. being healthy to do good.

There is a Prophetic Hadeeth advising to keep every act of life, for the sake of Allah. That will make life a continuous worship.

Addiction is caused by weak will power in front of bad desire and can be tackled by strengthening the will power. Fasting is one of the good ways to strengthen the will power as well as practicing useful acts which are against the desire. It is helpful to repeat Estighfaar (ASTAGHFIRULLAH) and SALWAAT (ALLAHUMMA SALLI 'ALA MUHAMMAD WA AALI MUHAMMAD) and (LAA HAWLA WALA QOWWATA ILLA BILLAH).

Drinking alcohol is a major sin in Islam. Major sins lead to hell fire.

Allah, The Glorious ordered Muslims in Quran to be away from alcohol and called as (Evil from the work of Satan)(5:90).

Prophetic Hadeeth says : The person who drinks alcohol is like an idol worshiper. (Eqaab al-A'maal by Shaikh al-Sadouq).

Our leading scholars stated that denying the prohibition of alcohol is denying a compulsory rule in Islam which amounts to denying Islam as a religion.

Salawaat is part of compulsory parts of Namaz as it was tought to the Prophet (SAWA) by Allah (SWT). The Prophet (SAWA) recited Salawaat in every Namaz and ordered Muslims to recite Namaz as he recited.

Salawaat is the greatest Du'a and it includes the main faith in Allah and His Messenger (SAWA) and Ahlul Bayt (AS).

Deliberately leaving Salawaat invalidates the Namaz.

Awwal Waqt means on the start of the time of Salah. We have in the our books what is called Waqt al-Fadheelah for every obligatory prayer which starts immediately on the time of Azaara (Athaan) and goes on till a limit. For Morning prayer Waqt al Fadheela is till the darkness of the sky remains. For Dhohr till two sevenths of the shadow, and Assr till six sevenths of the shadow. For Maghrib prayer it is till the end of red light of the west, and Isha till one third of the night.
