A man narrated [a story] to me, that in their town there was a blind man who knew the time of Fajr had arrived [just] by the smell [in the air]; yes, [just] by its smell – without actually [being able to] see it!
Is standing [during] the last third [of the night in prayer] best? [Please advise] with clarity of the time when the last third of the night is.
Missing the Fajr prayer and sleeping during its time instead of praying it, is from the greatest of the prohibited acts, and from the acts of the hypocrites.
We see some people when they need to break [away from] their prayer [short] for some emergency, or to join [the congregation when] the imaam [is about to start the prayer], or if they have invalidated their prayer – they do the tasleem. So is this act [of theirs] correct, or will the intention [to terminate the prayer] suffice?
My husband does not pray, and every time I advise him [about it], he says “in shaa.-Allaah I will pray”.
We see many people who only pray during Ramadhaan, and when Ramadhaan ends, they abandon the masaajid. So what do you say to these people [O] noble Shaykh, and may Allaah reward you with good?
