Welcome to TJ Islamic Studies!

Glad you stopped by!

TJ Islamic Studies (the Islamic branch of Talibiddeen Jr. homeschooling) is and has been run by Umm Ibrahim Samirah, an American homeschooling mom/stepmom of 10 since 2002.

The materials at TJ Islamic Studies that I have personally created are offered freely for you to download and use provided they are used for non-commercial educational purposes only and that credit is given TJ.

Over the years, TJ has been all around the internet (smile). It started out as one site, mushroomed into gazillions of sites  here and there, and now, with the permission of Allah, will soon be condensing back down to 2 sites:

  • Talibiddeen Jr Homeschooling (for secular homeschooling/educational resources) and
  • TJ Islamic Studies (to include Islamic Studies and the soon to be former TJ Arabic Studies and TJ Quraan, in shaa Allah)

If you are seeing this message, that means I'm not done with the reorganizing so please pardon any loopy things you may encounter here.

If you have any trouble getting around or locating resources, please click the little green and white envelope button in your top right hand corner and email me or visit TJ's Facebook Page and send me a message.

Istinjaa- Cleaning the Private Parts - From Al-Iqna' of Ibn al-Mundhir

 Al-Iqna' of Ibn al-Mundhir : Section Dealing With Ritual Purity

CHAPTER FIVE : Mention of Cleaning the Private Parts (Istinjaa`)

6. Abu Bakr narrated to us; al-Hasan bin Alee narrated to us; ibn Numayr narrated to us; from al-A`mash; from Ibraaheem; from Abdur-Rahmaan bin Yazeed; from Salmaan who said
"The polytheists said, 'indeed your Prophet teaches you [in such detail] that he even teaches you about excretion!' [Salmaan] said, 'for sure, he forbade us from cleaning the private parts with dung or bone and he said: it does not suffice any of you to use less than three stones.'" {12}
  • One. It is sufficient to use three stones in the case that the impurity is removed. It is not valid to use less than three stones.
  • Two. If the impurity is not removed by using three stones then more should be employed until the impurity is removed. {13}
  • Three. Any emission outside urine and excretion requires water to cleanse it [with the exception of wind].
  • Four. Cleaning oneself after urinating is done in the same way as cleaning oneself after excreting [with three or more stones].
  • Five. It is valid to clean the private parts by using clods of dry and solid earth, wood, cloth, papyrus, pieces of moulded clay and other such things.
  • Six. The private parts are not to be cleaned using dung.
  • Seven. They are not to be cleaned using something that has already been employed to clean unless it is first purified.
  • Eight. The private parts are not to be cleaned using bones or anything impure. {14}
  • Nine. It is recommended to employ water to clean the private parts.
  • Ten. If both stones and water are used then this is good. {15}
  • Eleven. It is recommended to wipe ones hand with earth or anything that would take its place and then wash the hand after cleaning the private parts. {16}
  • Twelve. When he leaves the toilet he should say, "Asking your forgiveness." {17}

The Manner of Tayammum

Tayammum is the ablution made when there is no water to be found.

 Al-Iqna' of Ibn al-Mundhir : Section Dealing With Ritual Purity
Author: The Imaam, Abu Bakr Muhammad bin Ibraaheem bin al
CHAPTER TEN : Dry Ablution [Tayammum]
  • One. Both the one one who is in a state of major impurity and minor impurity can perform dry ablution in the case that no water is to be found.
  • Two. The one who is sick and in a state of major impurity can perform dry ablution if he fears that the coldness of the water would harm him were he to bathe in it. This applies regardless of whether he is travelling or not.
  • Three. None of these people have to repeat their prayers if later they find water, regardless of whether they find it within the time of the current prayer or after it.
  • Four. Therefore the one who is allowed to perform dry ablution should perform it at the beginning of the period for the prayer and pray. He does not have to repeat the prayer if he later finds water.
  • Five. The best opinion that has been voiced concerning looking for water is that the seeker look to his right and left, in front of him and behind him and if he finds water or indications to a water source then he should perform ritual ablution otherwise he can perform dry ablution.
  • Six. The one who intends to perform dry ablution should find clean earth and strike both his hands upon it once, then he should raise them and wipe his face and hands.
  • Seven. It is not permissible to perform dry ablution except with clean earth due to his (sallallaahu `alaihi wasallam) saying, "the earth has been made clean and purifying for me as well as a Mosque." {27}
  • Eight. With one dry ablution he can perform all of the obligatory prayers and other prayers [in the case that water is not found].
  • Nine. It is better and safer if he were to perform dry ablution for each obligatory prayer.
  • Ten. He can perform dry ablution in a short or long journey.
  • Eleven. It is not upon him to buy water through spending more than he can afford.
  • Twelve. If he fears thirst then he should keep the water he has for drinking, perform dry ablution and he does not have to repeat the prayer.
  • Thirteen. The one who does not have any water can have sexual intercourse then perform dry ablution and then pray. This is valid.
  • Fourteen. One should perform dry ablution for optional prayers and the prostrations of the Qur`aan [in the case that no water is found].
  • Fifteen. If one performs dry ablution, enters the prayer and then sees water, he should not leave the prayer, rather he should complete it.
  • Sixteen. It is not permissible to perform dry ablution without intention.
  • Seventeen. Every one who has performed dry ablution must take a ritual bath if he was in a state of major impurity or perform ritual ablution if he was in a state of minor impurity when they find water in order to pray any ensuing prayer.
  • Eighteen. The menstruating women, when she becomes free of her menstrual cycle, and the woman undergoing post-natal bleeding, when she becomes pure, can do all that we have mentioned above.
  • Nineteen. It is permissible for one who has performed dry ablution to lead those who have performed ritual ablution.

Quick Reference Guide of the Pillars, Conditions, and Requirements of Salaat

From Islamtees.wordpress.com. These are scans of the quick reference guide from "An Explanation of “The Conditions, Pillars & Requirements of Prayer" and they show the Arabic and English terms for the pillars, conditions, and requirements. Very handy! (They also contain the conditions and obligations and nullifiers of wudhoo as well).
