Travel to see world
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Your Question: are we allowed to perform wudu with running water from a tap or only from a bowl filled with water?
One may perform wudu with any source of pure and clean water, regardless of whether it is water running from a tap or held in a bowl or a vessel.
Your Question: is there a translation of the holy quran available in gujarati language? pls advise name of author.
The translation of the Glorious Quran is available in
almost every widely spoken language in the world. There are several good translations of the
Glorious Quran in the Gujrati language, and in our humble opinion the best
amongst them is the translation by Syed Abul Aala Maududi published by Markazi
Maktaba Islami Publishers,
Beloved Sister, if you are unable to find a copy of the translation of the Glorious Quran in the Gujrati language, please do let us know and we will arrange to mail you a copy, Insha Allah.
Your Question: is travelling allowed only for the purpose of holidaying to foreign lands to see and appreciate scenic beauty created by Allah(swt)?
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chatper 29 Surah Ankabut verse 20:
20 Say: "Travel through the earth and see how Allah did originate creation: so will Allah produce a later creation: for Allah has power over all things.”
Islam does not at all prohibit the believers from traveling through the earth, either for business purposes or holiday; provided the believers fear Allah and honor His boundaries wherever they may be or go.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
