Seeking explanations and interpretations of an existing fatwa

This tag is for seeking explanations about existing fatawa. Valid use-cases of this tag would include…

  • …explaining a complex fatwa in simpler terms,
  • …understanding how to interpret and apply a fatwa under particular circumstances (see also: ),
  • …understanding a fatwa in the light of apparently-conflicting evidence.

It is not, however, for debating whether the fatwa is "right" or "wrong" (see: Islam—Stack Exchange is not for debates or apologetics). For the purposes of this tag, all answers should accept the methodology used in the fatwa, rather than attempt to present alternative viewpoints.
