NOTE. I have not seen any translation that refers to the phrase ظل الله as the shadow of Allah. Almost all translations that I have seen (including the ones referenced in this answer) use the word shade instead of shadow. Hence, the translation of the fatwa should read: Q: In the hadith of the seven people that will be shaded by Allah under His shade on ...

From what I can gather, خنزير الماء is meant to be a hypothetical or mythical creature and it isn't defined exactly what it is. Similar examples which can be found in Fiqh books include إنسان الماء (mermen) كلب الماء (water dogs) and حمار الماء (water donkeys) etc. There is a view that it means dolphins or porpoise: mereswine. From Hayatul Haywan حياة ...

To complement the answer by @Uma: General rule: A Muslim should not kill another Muslim intentionally وَمَا كَانَ لِمُؤْمِنٍ أَن يَقْتُلَ مُؤْمِنًا إِلَّا خَطَأً And never is it for a believer to kill a believer except by mistake. — Surah An-Nisa [4:92-93] The verse above is a general rule, but it has an exemption ("by mistake"). The verse is ...

They base it on: فإن تابوا وأقاموا الصلاة وآتوا الزكاة فخلوا سبيلهم But if they should repent, establish prayer, and give zakah, let them [go] on their way. — Quran 9:5 أمرت أن أقاتل الناس حتى يشهدوا أن لا إله إلا الله وأن محمدا رسول الله ويقيموا الصلاة ويؤتوا الزكاة فإذا فعلوا عصموا مني دماءهم وأموالهم إلا بحقها وحسابهم على الله I ...

Yes, the partial quote provided is by Ibn Taymiyyah, but as typically is the case, the quote is either chopped, taken out of context, or misquoted altogether. The quote is from Iqtidā' al-Ṡerāt al-Mustāqīm (Arabic: اقتضاء الصراط المستقيم لمخالفة أصحاب الجحيم), Dār 'Ālam al-Kotob (Arabic: دار عالم الكتب), Beirut, Lebanon: 1999, Vol. 2, pp. 276-279. No, Ibn ...

What is a qullah? First of all you should know that a qullah is basically a big vessel (search via google القلة). One could ask himself whether these vessels have been fabricated everywhere with the same volume.... The relatad ahadith about qullatayn (two qullahs) are linked in my answer on Levels of obligatoriness of rulings within schools of law. Here ...

وَإِذَا سَمِعُوا اللَّغْوَ أَعْرَضُوا عَنْهُ وَقَالُوا لَنَا أَعْمَالُنَا وَلَكُمْ أَعْمَالُكُمْ سَلَامٌ عَلَيْكُمْ لَا نَبْتَغِي الْجَاهِلِينَ And when they hear ill speech, they turn away from it and say, For us are our deeds, and for you are your deeds. Peace will be upon you; we seek not the ignorant. I do not think the Fatwa (in the link you ...

This is the sentence right after the one you quoted: So a non-Arab who is pious and righteous is better than an Arab who falls short in his duties to Allah, may He be exalted. Although, this is referring specifically to individuals, the same concept applies to individual countries. Each country is as good as the actions it does. If a nation does more for ...

This is recorded in Sahih Bukhari, كتاب المغازى, and Sahih Muslim, كتاب الأشربة. Ibn Kathir in Al Bidayah wa al-Nihayah also mentions other references.

First of all al-Mughni is a book on hanbali fiqh not the Qur'an, so whatever the author says is the interpretation of his fiqh school based on their ijtihad and osol and not necessarily the truth as scholars are not infallible. Nevertheless as you sadly didn't show us the source of the translation I must trust your statement saying: In the english ...

According to the law of Islam, it is completely prohibited to celebrate Independence Day, not only that, but other ceremonies too as per the The Messenger of Allah -peace and prayer of Allah be upon him- said, إن لكل قوم عيدا ، وهذا عيدنا “Every nation has its own ‘Id, and ‘Id al Fithr is our ‘Id (the muslims). (Narrated by Bukhari, no. 952, 3931, and Muslim ...

No, Allah doesn't have shadow. Even, logically it can remark that Allah has no shadow. In truth, shadow is related to creatures which are limited, but Allah as the creator Who is not limited, doesn't have shadow. Meanwhile, Allah is not material to have shadow. Let me add some related issue based on my assumption, too: E.g., in Persian (Farsi) language, it ...

A different perspective on the question "Does Allah have a shadow?" One presumes from this question that you mean "have" not in the sense of having control over "shadow" and "shade". According to 2:225 (ayat al-Kursi), all things in the heavens and the earth are Allah's, therefore we could say Allah "has" or is in possession of not only "a shadow" or a "...

A relevant hadith is: Narrated 'Abdullah: that the Prophet cursed the women who practice tattooing and those who seek to be tattooed, the women who remove hair from their faces seeking beautification by changing the creation of Allah. Jami` at-Tirmidhi [grade: sahih] There's other comparable ahadith: Sahih al-Bukhari 5931, 5943, and 5948, Sahih Muslim ...

The referred hadith belongs to a particular stage in the ministry of the Messenger i.e. after itmam al hujjah. Tahawi (853-933) writes while explaining a different hadith: وَكَانَ فِي الْوَقْتِ الَّذِي أَمَرَهُ اللهُ بِالْعَفْوِ عَنْهُمْ ، وَالصَّفْحِ ، وَتَرْكِ مُجَادَلَتِهِمْ إِلَّا بِالَّتِي هِيَ أَحْسَنُ ، ثُمَّ نَسَخَ اللهُ ذَلِكَ وَأَمَرَهُ ...

The article quotes the following verse: Men are in charge of women by [right of] what Allah has given one over the other and what they spend [for maintenance] from their wealth. So righteous women are devoutly obedient, guarding in [the husband's] absence what Allah would have them guard. [4:34] It is clear from the context that men means husbands ...
