Thursday 20130613 – In this enlightening series, Mufti Zubair Bhayat, discussed Salaah in detail as well as the Shuroot thereof.
Mufti commenced by defining the term Shuroot; the Preconditions for the validity of any act. These conditions were discussed and which have to be fulfilled prior to commencing the Salaah. If these conditions are not fulfilled, the Salaah itself will be nullified.
In this Podcast Mufti Zubair discussed the Niyyah or Intention that is to be made for Salaah.
Niyyah, as Mufti Saheb explained, is to formulate an intention in the heart. Once this intention is made, which is a split-second exercise, this will suffice. Mufti clarified that it is erroneous to consider it a requirement to verbalize the Niyyah.
In the case of following an Imam, Mufti cautioned that if a Niyyah is made lengthy, there is a possibility of missing a Rakah.
Other aspects of Niyyah discussed were; the exact wording of the Niyyah, time of the Niyyah, Niyyah for Janazah Salaah and female muktadees following a male Imam.
