The ten blessed animals which will enter Paradise (jannah)?
“Some interpreters of the Quran said, ‘There are 10 kinds of animals which will enter Paradise which are as follows:
1- The Buraaq (an animal with wings, that is bigger than a donkey and smaller than a mule) which the Prophet sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam ( may Allaah exalt his mention ) rode on the night of Al-Israa’ (Ascension).
2- The she-camel of Saalih may Allaah exalt his mention which was hamstrung by those who denied the truth.
3- The donkey of ‘Uzayr whom Allaah The Almighty caused to die for one hundred years and then Allaah The Almighty revived him and he found his donkey next to him as it was.
4- The calf, which the Prophet Ibraaheem (Abraham), may, Allaah exalt his mention, slaughtered for his angel guests.
5- The ram with which Allaah The Almighty ransomed Ismaa’eel (Ishmael) may Allaah exalt his mention from being slaughtered according to the vision seen by Prophet Ibraaheem may Allaah exalt his mention.
What to do to sleep less?
What do you need:
To realize how much time of your life you spend sleeping
To realize what can you do with 3 more hours a day
To realize that what you need is more energy, not more sleep time
Step 1: To optimize sleeping time:
You need to have the most natural light you can get.
You can start by leting your sunglasses at home, opening the windows as soon as you wake up and if you spend to much time indors, buy a daylight lamp, the ones that people with Seasonal Affective Dissorder use.
Step 2: The not so fun part:
Drink 2 lt. water a day. This way the body use less effort to make what the body do during the night. But dont drink or eat two hours before going to bed, so the body can rest without worrying about digestion. Also (told you this was the not so fun part) avoid coffe and alcohol. If you find life without coffe and alcohol and with 3 or 4 more hours a day is worth living, keep reading.
Step 3: optional stuff:
UZBEKISTAN: Over 160 year wait to go on haj pilgrimage?
Uzbekistan continues severely restricting the Muslims who can on the haj pilgrimage to Mecca, Forum 18 News Service notes. The state imposes severe restrictions on the numbers of pilgrims and refuses to explain why it does this. People can only get onto the extremely long pilgrimage waiting lists after extensive scrutiny by state agencies including the NSS secret police. Shaira Sadygbekova of Ezgulik human rights organisation has calculated that she will need to live to be 205 years old to reach the top of the waiting list. The head of her mahalla (city district) – one of the agencies which decides who gets onto waiting lists – told Forum 18 that she "will be able to go in 20 or 30 years". Even if people reach the top of the waiting list they may be arbitrarily denied an exit visa to go on pilgrimage. State-run banks often refuse to distribute enough hard currency to pilgrims, according to human rights defenders including Surat Ikramov.Devamını oku
Does laughing break one's wudu?
here are different levels of being amused and each has its own ruling:
 "Tabassum", merely smiling, this will not break the Salah or a person's Wudu. One should however try avoiding this as it is against the manner in which this act of worship is to be performed.
 "Dahik", this is very light laughter that can only be heard by the person laughing himself. It will not break Wudu but will break the Salah.
 "Qahqaha", laughter that if there was a person next to you it could be heard by him. This extent of laughing will not only break the Salah but also that person's Wudu.
The proof for this is:
1. The Prophet was leading a prayer and a blind man was walking and fell into a well, upon which some of the sahaba laughed while in prayer. When the prayer ended the Prophet ordered them to renew their ablution and then pray again.
2. The Prophet said, "Gurgulous laugh in prayer invalidates the prayer and the ablution."

Is sehri compulsory for a nafil fast
Sehri is not compulsory either during fasts of Ramadhan or Nafl fasts (Rozas), although it is a great Sunnah and a source of great blessings and we should have it.
Since it isn't compulsory for any kinds of fasts, your Roza will be valid if you skip Sehri but you would be deprived of blessings and following the Sunnah of our beloved Rasul-ullah (Sallaho Alaihe Wassallam) so a person should try their best to have Sehri.
The times of kerahat
There are 3 time periods during the day during which it is not permissible to pray any extra prayers (sunnet namaz, qazha/make-up namaz, nafileh/extra namaz).
Also, it is highly recommended to avoid sleeping during the 1st and 2nd time periods (45 minutes after sunrise, 45 minutes before sunset).
Istiwa. The 45-50 minute time period after the sun rises. (After the time for Fejr/Sabah/Morning namaz is finished)
The 45 minute time period before the sun sets. (The last 45 minutes of Asr/Ikindi/Afternoon namaz. Before Magrib/Aksam/Evening namaz begins)
The 30-40 minute time period when the sun reaches its peak. (Before Zuhr/Öğlen/Noon namaz begins)
The kerahat time applies only to the extra prayers, not the fard! If you have left your fard (required) namaz to the kerahat time, still perform it!

There Are 17,000 South African Muslims Still Waiting To Attend Hajj
There are 17,000 South African Muslims on the waiting list to go on the annual Hajj pilgrimage, The South African Haj and Umrah Council (Sahuc) told HuffPost SA on Friday. Many of them have been waiting since 2013 to do the once-in-a-lifetime trip.
The backlog comes after Saudi Arabian officials drastically reduced the quota of South Africans allowed to enter the Kingdom during the Hajj period. Over 2.5 million Muslims attended the event, which takes place this weekend in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, and is compulsory for Muslim believers who have the means to do so, according to the Qu'ran.

Only 2,500 South Africans will attend the pilgrimage this year, the Sahuc says, which costs around R40,000 per person for six weeks, excluding flights.
President Shaheen Essop expressed his disappointment with Saudi authorities in 2015, when the quota for South Africans was first reduced.
