What Is Ad-Da'watus-Salafiyyah?

Shaikh Saalih bin 'Abdil-'Azeez Aali Shaikh said,

"There is no such thing as ”study time” for the student of knowledge! This is because all of his time is spent in seeking knowledge. In the morning and in the evening, his mind is preoccupied with the various issues of knowledge." ~ Al-Manhajiyyah fee Talabil-'Ilm"

When A Woman Performs Sajdatut-Tilawah



Question: When a woman performs sajdatut-tilawah (the prostration of Qur'anic recitation), should she wear Hijab as she does in prayer?

Answer: This depends on the difference of opinion among the scholars regarding whether or not the ruling of sajdatut-tilawah is the same as the prayer. If it is the case that it is the same as prayer, then the 'awrah' must be covered, the qiblah must be faced and the person must be in a state of ritual purification. But if we have the view that it is simply a prostration and that it does not necessitate the same conditions as the prayer, then it is not a condition. In that case, a woman does not need to wear Hijab, as she does in the prayer, or even have wudu. However, there is no doubt that it would be more appropriate to act on the first opinion and not perform sajdah, unless one's wudu is valid, for both men and women, and to ensure that they are covering that which should be covered during the prayer.
