“There are no two Muslims who meet and shake hands, but they will be forgiven before ...
You can divide sarcasm into two types:
Not involving lying
The second is in the Quran itself, so that is definitely halal:
Those who defy Allah’s signs and kill the prophets unjustly, and kill those who call for justice from among the people, congratulate them of a painful punishment. (3:21)
The word used here for "congratulate"...

Literally "Islam" means "submission" so "Islam" is called "Islam" because the sole criteria which has to be satisfied in Islam is one's submission to the will of God.
Literally speaking, all Divine religions from Adam to Mohammad can be called "Islam" because they share the same criteria as mentioned before. They all require man to surrender himself to only ...
There is nothing in the Qur'an or authentic hadiths that mentions anything about Iblees praying on an unfolded prayer mat. There is also nothing in the Qur'an or authentic hadiths that refers to Iblees, or any other shaytan, praying in the first place.

Performing dance ( رقص ) is haram when it involves other haram actions like intoxication, uncovering of the 'awrah, vulgarity etc.
There is difference among the madhabs on the ruling on dancing which is free from the above. The position of the majority is that it is makruh. Their evidence includes:
It comes under the meaning of the following verse:
In Islam, your parents have a high amount of rights over you. After all, they raised you, taught you, and made you who you are.
And your Lord has decreed that you not worship except Him, and to parents, good treatment. Whether one or both of them reach old age [while] with you, say not to them [so much as], "uff," and do not repel them but speak to them a ...

It is obligatory on all Muslims to give Da'wah to the kuffar, and if Da'wah reaches the Kuffar, and do not enter Islam and follow Muhammad, then they will be of the people of hell fire. Now if Muslims force non-Muslims, then this is wrong and should not happen, as for why some might do that I do not know. Lastly asking people to follow the ...
According to this fatwa (in Arabic) there's no appropriate time for that prescribed in any hadith or sunnah collection. But this fatwa quotes that the Prophet (Peace be upon him ) used to visit graves on the nights of 'Aisha's turn, some scholars added that this was after Hajat al-wada'. So scholars conclude from this that there is no special time or day ...

Advise. The first step is to advise the person that drinking alcohol is not permissible. It may be, as you mentioned in your question, that they are unaware of this. In any case, we are commanded to enjoin in what is right, and forbid what is wrong through multiple verses in the Qur'an and hadiths. Doing so will almost always result in some consequence to ...
The hadith appears not only in at-Tirmdihi's shamaa'il الشمائل المحمدية, but also in his Jami' (same narrator chain), Imam Ahmad's Musnad (same narrator chain), ibn Saa'd (? author of at-Tabaqaat) and ibn Hebbans sahih (with a different narrator chain which has in it Abdullah ibn Wahb and is considered as sane by al-Alabani) according to Mubarakpuri in his ...
Abu Huraira reported Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) as saying. Allah fixed the very portion of adultery which a man will indulge in. There would be no escape from it.

All religions give parents an honorable and very high status. Our indebtedness to our parents is so immense that it is not possible to repay it fully. In lieu of this, it becomes obligatory for us to show the utmost kindness, respect, and obedience to our parents.

parents, good treatment. ...
The sunnah of feeding (poor) people
This is covered in both sahih's and the three sunan books

It doesn't mean that you will become a disbeliever if you don't love for your brother what you love for yourself, rather it means that your Imaan ...
No, its not. What actors do at the end is a sign of gratitude. This bowing is not a bowing of submission as we do in prayers. They show that they are humbled by the appreciation from the audience. There is not even a shadow of associating partners with God in this bowing.
As long as you don't laugh or take part in any jokes which offend people or the religion of islam, or any jokes which may result in upsetting individuals, discriminating or as a result of back biting.
