Sheikh Abu Iyas Mahmoud bin Abdul Latif al-Uweida

As part of our series on scholars of our age and the work for the re-establishment of Khilafah we present some brief details of one of the greatest living scholars today.

Sheikh Abu Iyas Mahmoud bin Abdul Latif al-Uweida (may Allah [swt] protect him) is a respected Mujtahid in Jordan who has spent long years in the da'wah to resume the Islamic way of life through re-establishing the Khilafah. The Sheikh was a companion of the previous Ameer of Hizb ut-Tahrir, Sheikh Abdul Qadeem Zalloom rahimullah.

Abu Iyas who is now quite elderly was imprisoned for a number of years in Jordan due to carrying the da'wah to uproot the corrupt government in Jordan as well as the other Muslim lands and replace them with a Khilafah Rashida. During one of his periods of imprisonment he was in the same prison as Sheikh Ata ibn Khaleel Abu Rashta, the present Ameer of Hizb ut-Tahrir.

Sheikh Abu Iyas has authored various books including:


  • مسائل فقهية مختارة (Selected Fiqhi [jurisprudential] matters). The book contains 321 issues in the form of questions and answers related to Salah (prayer), fasting, Zakah, Hajj, Umrah, economics, ruling, social relations and Jihad. The Sheikh has selected from the questions which he responded to between 1993 and 1997.

AA Brs - I am trying to find the Sheikhs opinion on reasons and details for combining prayer specifically related to rain ( time of rain | Distance within | How much rain | standing water | etc. )

Also as well as the opinion on combining prayer, what is the Sheikhs opinion on when performing prayer your elderly mother calls you. Are you suppose to break your prayer and attend to her need, quickly finnish your prayer and then attend to her need, or attend to her need and then resume your prayer where you left off - jzk.

slm, will it possible to get Shikh's opinion on combining pray at home, before starting the journey ? Book mentions that it is a sunnah to combine in advance before journey starts, if the prescribed time for the earlier salah had come ( i.e. Dhuhar , Mahrib). Here “before start the Journey" does in refer praying at home / locality itself? or should we leave home and pray elsewhere ?

The Sheikhs Usul is that of Sheikh Taqiuddin an Nabhani, this Usuk is elaborated in the book The Islamic Personality Vol 3.
