Subject:I am new
Comment:Salam, My name in Vladimir Dudayev. I am new the area and have no Muslim friends or community as of yet. I am shy and it took me a long time to reach out to you. I am originally from Chechnya and have had to practice in secret for most of my life. I reach out because I don't come from money, i don't have very good means of transportation from Pasadena your location, and I am young. But, I seek an understanding of the Quran as I was never allowed an education, an understanding of Arabic from Allah swt, a community who love God and his people as I have. I hope to join your congregation and learn from you, but I know not a single person in common, only Allah swt. May your day be blasted with his graces. Vladimir Johar Dudayev

Comment:I would like to convey my gratitude to Al-Taqwa mosque that Alhamdulillah, numbers of initiatives have been taken by the mosque management. Friday night lecture (after isha') is extremely productive, entertaining & thoughtful. I & my family attending this lecture and are beneficial one way or another. Kids classes are awesome, both on Saturday & Sunday, this is the type of community I was looking for my 5 yrs old kid who is not only learning Quranic pronunciation from Ulema (like Br.Jehad) but also have a chance being in the mosque environment. I hope, other people will also bring their kids to mosque at least on Saturday or Sunday so they will become better Muslim tomorrow. Note: There is no fee of Saturday Quranic class and also I have seen # of adults who wants to improve their tajweed also attending this class.

Comment:Assalamualaikum. A friend of mine would like to embrace Islam. Could you please tell me the process followed for this at the mosque. In India, other than saying the Shahadah and praying 2 rakah, there is also a registration process wherein the convert's new name is registered at the mosque so that at the time of marriage a certificate can be issued to any other mosque proclaiming that the person is a Muslim. Also, generally people are buried at the same mosque that they are registered with. Is this the same here as well?

Subject:Partitions Between Men & Women in th
Comment: Name of Questioner Lisa - United States Title Partitions Between Men & Women in the Mosque Question As-Salamu `aaykum. We have a big controversy going on in our Masjid. Some brothers want to build a wall in the prayer hall musalla to separate men from women. Is that required in Islam? What are the basic rules of Shari`ah on this matter? Date 15/Jan/2007 Name of Counsellor Muzammil Siddiqi Topic Places of Prayer (Mosques), Mixing Answer Wa `alaykum As-Salamu wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful. All praise and thanks are due to Allah, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger. Dear sister in Islam, thanks a lot for your question which reflects your care to have a clear view of the teachings of Islam. Allah commands Muslims to refer to people of knowledge to get themselves well-acquainted with the teachings of Islam as well as all aspects of life. It is perfectly Islamic to hold meetings of men and women inside the Masjid, whether for prayers or for any other Islamic purpose, without separating them with a curtain, partition or wall. If there is a concern that the lines of men and women will mix inside the Masajid, then there is no harm in putting a lower barrier, only to demarcate the separate area for women. But women should not be put in a totally separate room in the Masajid unless there is a shortage of space and no other proper arrangement can be done for them. Giving a detailed answer to the question posed, Dr. Muzammil H. Siddiqi, president of the Fiqh Council of North America , states: Both men and women are allowed to pray in the Mosque in the same Jama`ah (congregational prayer). When men and women are together in the Masjid then we should have first men’s lines behind the Imam, then children and then women. This is the way Muslims used to pray behind the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him). He did not make or ask his Companions to have a curtain or wall between the lines of men and women. (See Al-Sindi’s Commentary on Sunan An-Nasa’i, p. 798) According to the Shari`ah, it is not required to have a partition, neither of temporary nor of permanent nature, between men and women in the Masjid. It is perfectly Islamic to hold meetings of men and women inside the Masjid, whether for prayers or for any other Islamic purpose, without separating them with a curtain, partition or wall. It is, however, very important that Muslim women come to public gatherings wearing proper Islamic dress, for it is Haram (forbidden) for a Muslim woman to attend a public gathering without a full Islamic dress. She must cover her hair and neck with a scarf, which should also go over her bosom. Her dress should be modest and loose enough in order not to reveal the shape of her body. It stands to reason that partitions were introduced inside the Masajid later in Islamic history. This was done, perhaps, because some women began coming to Mosques without observing proper Islamic dress, or perhaps, some men wanted to discourage them from coming to Mosques. In the time of the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) there was no curtain or partition in his Masjid, although women used to come to the Masjid almost for every prayer and for many other gatherings. It is, however, reported that they used to come to the Masjid dressed up in long clothes. `A’ishah, the Mother of the Believers (may Allah be pleased with her) said that the believing women used to attend the Dawn prayer with the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him). They used to come wrapped up in their long garments and then they used to return to their homes after the prayer, no one could recognize them because of the darkness. (Reported by Al-Bukhari) Jama`ah means a congregation of people who are praying behind one Imam in continuous lines without any barrier or interruption. As for people who pray behind the Imam, they should either see the Imam or see those who are in front of them. There is no Jama`ah when a person is in one room and his/her Imam in another room, the lines are not continuous and the people behind the Imam are also not visible, otherwise people would not have to come to the Masjid for Jama`ah prayer. They would stay home and pray listening to the loudspeakers from their Masjid or through intercoms. They could nowadays even pray Jama`ah prayer in this way in their own homes listening to the prayer broadcasts coming from Makkah and Madinah on their radios, television sets or through the Internet. But no jurists have ever allowed a Jama`ah prayer in this way. The definition of Jama`ah that I gave above is a general one and it is applicable to both men and women. Only in the case of necessity this rule can be relaxed. For example, if the Masjid was too small and people had to pray on different levels or in different rooms to accommodate every person then this would be permissible because of necessity. Muslims should not deliberately and for no reason bifurcate their congregation in their Masajid. If there is a concern that the lines of men and women will mix inside the Masajid, then there is no harm in putting a lower barrier, only to demarcate the separate area for women. But women should not be put in a totally separate room in the Masajid unless there is a shortage of space and no other proper arrangement can be done for them.
