Shaykh AbdulAzeez bin Abdullaah bin Baaz was asked:

“Lights are switched off in Masjids purposely so that there is only a dim light.

The Shaykh asked – “What is the reason for doing this?”

“They say it perfects their khushoo’

The questioner asked “Is this a Bida’ O Shaykh?”

He answered:

“This is wrong, explain to whoever does this that it is wrong.

[Taken from the Sharh of Bloogh al-Maraam Kitab at-Taharah]

 

  • Shaykh Salih al-Fawzaan was asked:

“Is it permissible to switch lights off in the masjid in order to establish khushoo’?”

The Shaykh answered:

“No this is a Bida’, we do not switch the lights off during Taraweeh prayer, people need light in order to pray, this is a Bida’ and not permissible. Maybe this is something that the sufis do.”

The ruling for the person who cries during the supplication but does not cry whilst the Book of Allaah is being recited

Shaykh AbdulAzeez bin Abdullaah bin Baaz was asked:

“What is the ruling for the person who cries during the supplication but does not cry whilst the Book of Allaah is being recited?”

The Shaykh answered:

“This action of crying is not out of choice, he is moved by Dua (supplication) and not by verses from the Quran. However he should seek a cure for himself from this, he should have Khushoo in his recitation more than Khushooo in his Dua, as kushoo from recitation is more important. If he feels Kushoo due to recitation and supplication then that is also good because khushoo during supplication is also a reason for Dua being answered however, he must have more concern for recitation of the Qur’aan, as it is the speech of Allah, it contains guidance & light.

The Messenger of Allaah used to ponder & think about it whilst reciting as did the Companions may Allah be pleased with them and make them pleased, would cry when the Qur’aan would be recited.

This is why when the Prophet -SallAllaahu alayhi wa Salam- asked Abdullaah bin Mas’ood: Recite the Qur’aan to me.

Abdullaah said: ‘How can I recite for you when it had ascended upon you?!

The Prophet said: ‘I like to listen to someone other than myself reciting it.’

So he proceeded to recite from the beginning of Soorah Nisa until he reached the saying of Allaah Ta’ala:

فَكَيْفَ إِذَا جِئْنَا مِنْ كُلِّ أُمَّةٍ بِشَهِيدٍ وَجِئْنَا بِكَ عَلَى هَؤُلَاءِ شَهِيدًا

<<How (will it be) then, when We bring from each nation a witness and We bring you (O Muhammad) as a witness against these people? >> [Nisa: 41]

The Prophet said: ‘That is sufficient.’

Ibn Mas’ood said: ‘So I turned to him’ or he said: ‘I raised my head towards him and I saw that his eyes were shedding tears.’

So from that which is apparent he was crying in silence, and his crying was only apparent due to his tears.

Also the hadeeth from Abdullaah bin Ash-Shakheer, that he heard a sound like that of a boiling cauldron coming from the chest of the Prophet  -SallAllaahu alayhi wa Salam- due to crying.

So this illustrates the point that the Prophet  -SallAllaahu alayhi wa Salam- reached to the point of crying with sound however, the sound was not unpleasant.’

إطفاء النور في المساجد لصلاة التراويح غلط

‎سُئِل الشيخ عبد العزيز بن باز رحمه الله-:

‎يتعمد بإطفاء النور في المسجد ولا يكون هناك إلا نور خافت.

‎فقال : ليه وش السبب ؟

‎السائل: يقول أكمل للخشوع.

‎العلاّمة ابن باز: هذا ما له أصل هذا كلام، ما له أصل.

‎السائل: أمر مُبتَدَع يا شيخ ؟

‎العلاّمة ابن باز: هذا غلط يُبَيّن له أن هذا غلط) أهـ

‎من شرح بلوغ المرام كتاب الطهارة

‎ﺳﺌـــﻞ ﺍﻟﻌـــﻼﻣﺔ ﺍﻟﺸﻴـــﺦ ﺻــــﺎﻟﺢ ﺍﻟﻔﻮﺯﺍﻥ ﺣﻔﻈـــﻪ ﺍﻟﻠﻪ:-

‎ﻫﻞ ﻳﺠﻮﺯ ﺇﻏـــﻼﻕ ﺍﻷﻧﻮﺍﺭ ﻓﻲ ﺍﻟﻤﺴﺎﺟﺪ ﻣﻦ ﺃﺟﻞ ﺗﺤﻘﻴﻖ ﺍﻟﺨﺸﻮﻉ؟

‎ﺍﻟﺠﻮﺍﺏ:-

‎[ﻻ، ﻫﺬﻩ ﺑﺪﻋﺔ ﻣﺎ ﺗﻐﻠﻖ ﺍﻷﻧﻮﺍﺭ ﻓﻲ ﺍﻟﻤﺴﺎﺟﺪ ﻓﻲ ﺻــــﻼﺓ ﺍﻟﺘﺮﺍﻭﻳﺢ ﻷﻥ ﺍﻟﻨﺎﺱ ﺑﺤﺎﺟﺔ ﺇﻟﻰ ﺍﻷﻧﻮﺍﺭ، ﻭﻫﺬﻩ ﺑﺪﻋﺔ ﻭﻻ ﺗﺠﻮﺯ، ﻭﺭﺑﻤﺎ ﻳﻜﻮﻥ ﻫﺬﺍ ﻣﻦ ﻓﻌﻞ ﺍﻟﺼﻮﻓﻴﺔ، ﻧﻌﻢ].

البكاء عند الدعاء وعند القراءة

س: ما حكم مَن يبكي في الدعاء ولا يبكي عند سماع كلام الله تعالى؟

ج: هذا ليس باختياره، فقد تتحرك نفسه في الدعاء ولا تتحرك في بعض الآيات، لكن ينبغي له أن يُعالج نفسه ويخشع في قراءته أعظم مما يخشع في دعائه؛ لأن الخشوع في القراءة أهم، وإذا خشع في القراءة وفي الدعاء كان ذلك كله طيبًا؛ لأن الخشوع في الدعاء أيضًا من أسباب الإجابة، لكن ينبغي أن تكون عنايته بالقراءة أكثر؛ لأنه كلام الله فيه الهدى والنور

.
كان النبي عليه الصلاة والسلام يتدبر ويتعقّل، وهكذا الصحابة رضي الله عنهم وأرضاهم يبكون عند تلاوته،

ولهذا لما قال النبي عليه الصلاة والسلام لعبدالله بن مسعود

: اقرأ علي القرآن، قال عبدالله: “كيف أقرأ عليك وعليك أنزل؟!”

قال: إني أُحب أن أسمعه من غيري،

 فقرأ عليه أول سورة النساء حتى بلغ قوله تعالى: فَكَيْفَ إِذَا جِئْنَا مِنْ كُلِّ أُمَّةٍ بِشَهِيدٍ وَجِئْنَا بِكَ عَلَى هَؤُلَاءِ شَهِيدًا [النساء:41]،

 قال: حسبك،

 قال ابن مسعود: “فالتفت إليه” أو قال: “فرفعت رأسي إليه فإذا عيناه تذرفان”[1]. يعني: يبكي.

وظاهره أنه يبكي بكاءً ليس فيه صوت، وإنما عُرف ذلك بوجود الدمع.
كذلك حديث عبدالله بن الشّخير: أنه سمع لصدره ﷺ أزيزًا كأزيز المِرْجَل من البكاء.

فهذا يدل على أنه قد يحصل له صوت لكنه ليس بمزعجٍ[2].

  2. من ضمن الأسئلة الموجهة لسماحته، المنشورة في رسالة: (الجواب الصحيح من أحكام صلاة الليل والتراويح). (مجموع فتاوى ومقالات الشيخ ابن باز 11/ 346).
