This question is likely to draw a number of opinions on the matter. I will try to document the arguments I have come across in chat rooms and debate forums, and leave the judgment to the individual reader. I am trying to respond with extreme caution, and based on my personal observations, with no intention of offending any differing opinions. Islam Q&A ...

The statement is neither hadith nor Qur'an, but one could call it words of wisdom and it will be hard to find a definite source, as there are indeed some similar statements referred to some sophisticated people and scholars. But it certainly goes along with the teaching of Islam. We learn to be honest if asked about knowledge in different verses of the Qur'...

Assuming you are scraping halah content. I think the hadith in At-Tirmdhi would help answer your question: "... And the Muslims will be held to their conditions, except the conditions that make the lawful unlawful, or the unlawful lawful." At-Tirmdhi This hadith talks about any conditions we have with others, and in your case, the rules that govern the ...

Here is a good answer to this question, in Arabic: http://fatwa.islamweb.net/fatwa/index.php?page=showfatwa&Option=FatwaId&Id=96231 To make it short: There was never a Hadith with such meaning. The word (given fatwa "opinion") in English is just one word in Arabic: (أفتى) which might have been mis-translated. In the Arabic context: the person ...

In Islam nobody is infallible unless Allah has told us so. In the sunni perspective only Messengers and prophets () are infallible in what ever they need to transfer the message of Allah, but as humans they might be fallible. When it comes to justice and verdicts we are often told and asked in Qur'an to apply justice no matter what comes, read for example: ...

As in all former posts there's no clear cut and there seem to be a mixing between the terms fatwa, shari'a and fiqh I'd like to start by explaining the first: (as for a distinction between fiqh and shari'a you may refer to this meta post) What is a fatwa? And when a verdict is binding crucial? A fatwa in Arabic language means giving guidance and showing ...

It is important to know that a fatwa in Islam is a legal ruling. During the time of the Prophet ﷺ, seeking a fatwa was addressed directly through revelation, as in the case when the Prophet ﷺ was approached about a ruling on inheritance: يَسْتَفْتُونَكَ قُلِ اللَّهُ يُفْتِيكُمْ فِي الْكَلَالَةِ They request from you a [legal] ruling. Say, "Allah ...

According to the Ahlus Sunnah, no humans other than the Prophets are infallible: ياأيها الذين آمنوا أطيعوا الله وأطيعوا الرسول وأولي الأمر منكم فإن تنازعتم في شيء فردوه إلى الله والرسول O you who have believed, obey Allah and obey the Messenger and those in authority among you. And if you disagree over anything, refer it to Allah and the Messenger. ...

No it is not a sin, as they are not suitable to marry each other. Here is a quote from the Quran indicating that women do not have to cover themselves around their brothers: And tell the believing women to reduce [some] of their vision and guard their private parts and not expose their adornment except that which [necessarily] appears thereof and to ...

A national anthem is a hymn or song of praise and love for one's nation. And all praise is for Allah Alone. So I don't think it is appropriate for a Muslim to sing the national anthem. Allow me to explain. Praising someone or something per se is not haraam. ("My wife is a great cook," or "My country is beautiful.") But making a ritual out of it for anything ...

One of the ways zakat CAN be used is as a compensation of the service to the person collecting the zakat. Just like any other job, it will be considered as a payment. In some countries, it is institutionalized. This will make the institution self-sustaining and withstand coercion from other government departments. A rich person can choose to provide this ...

As what I believe it is not haram, but if your intention of making this for bad stuff like exploiting glitches to hack into site to steal stuff then yes it is haram, you might want to make sure to check the robots.txt of site so the site will tell you where you can crawl in the site. The money you get from doing this as I said if your intention of making ...

To leave of Jumu'ah without any excuse is a grave sin, the Prophet said: من ترك ثلاث جمعات من غير عذر كتب من المنافقين Whoever leaves three Juma'aat without any excuse he will be written from the hypocrites Narrated by Attabarani The Prophet also was tempted to burn down the houses of those who did come to Jum'ah, but I do not know any source ...

Walaykumsalam. First, it is fard upon us to refer back to Allah and his Messenger in all things, especially when we differ. Allah said in Surah an-Nisa' 4:59 = "O you who have believed, obey Allah and obey the Messenger and those in authority among you. And if you disagree over anything, refer it to Allah and the Messenger, if you should believe in Allah ...

You have to tell us what school of thought you have then based on that someone can answer. There are various answers to this question. However in a nutshell: Sunnis are more inclined to it being Haram. Shias are more inclined to it being non-haram. Yet they vary. Though in each and every insurance contract, the way it's written and the conditions of the ...

Yes. At least he did for Druze and Alawites. In the book Majmoo al-Fatawa (Compilation of Fatwa), which is a collection of fatwas issued by Ibn Taimiyah published posthumously, volume 35 page 161 we have this passage (translated by myself with my additions in brackets). The late sheikh was asked: Of the Druze and Nusayris (Alawites): what is their ...

NO Good that you asked before. Any ways, mocking the Qur'anic verses by non believers is expected, But you wonder, while they mock, And when they are reminded, they remember not. And when they see a sign, they ridicule And say, "This is not but obvious magic...." (Qur'an 37:12-15) But why would you ever want to create disparities and conflicts and more ...

According to sunni hadith collections and scholars: There are rules for whom is the best to be chosen as an Imam for congregation.

Also one can conclude from the hadith about whom should be an Imam that those people ...

The answer may be yes and no. In fact apparently your answer would be depend on the part of bank where you intend to work in. I mean in case of working in relevant part jobs of the bank which are relevant to riba acts, then you must avoid it otherwise your income would be haram. Also you should don't forget that you mustn't find a haram job by justifying ...

All perfect praise be to Allah Firstly i will suggest to talk with imam or switch masjid, and pray taraweeh behind some reasonable person who recite quran not fight with it... Secondly, sanaa/istiftah is sunnah, if it is left because of some reason, than prayer is valid. Like in a situation you join salah and imam is reciting surah al-ikhlas and you know ...

Looking from the point of view of an average Muslim such as myself, the best thing to do is to follow the fatwas from the school of thought that we strongly believed in. All of those fatwas are based on the Qur'an and the Sunnah, so following them is our way to live our life according to the teachings of Islam. However, being diligent is always a benefit. We ...

It depends. This should be applicable for muslim scholars and laymen the same way. Case-Allowed to reveal If the crime committed is such that it has oppressed another human(s) then the listener of act(or mufti) is supposed to complain to the authorities or stop the act immediately (if the act is ongoing) in his capacity(he can't take down a mob of armed men ...

We know that Allah has forbidden to destroy Churches and Temples etc. according to Verse of Surat al Hajj (22:40), but this doesn't mean that a Muslim should accept them as a Place where Allah is still worshiped according to this fatwa.

Firsts of all you should know that any direction you come from has it's myqaat (the place you should wear Ihram at) according this hadith. Scholars tend to say that people who are visiting Mekka without the intention of 'Umrah or Hajj don't need to wear the Ihram, but of course it would be the best to do at least a 'Umrah once there! Now to your inquiry as ...

There is a difference of opinion regarding this. The hanafi Madhab permits clothing in which there is less than 50% silk. In the Hanafi school, it is permitted without dislike to wear items of clothing in which there is less than 50% silk content. [Nahlawi, al-Hadhr wa’l Ibaha] Islamqa.org But scholars at IslamQA regard all kinds of clothing that have pure ...

I searched somewhat, but unfortunately I couldn’t find its reference. Accidentally I myself have heard this Fatwa as well. But I don't know where its reference is. In my opinion, there must be a reason that you cannot find the references of such questions and it could be related to the shamefulness of these Fatwas(rulings). Actually the tellers or narrators ...

After some search I myself found some related fatawas, but yet apparently it does not seem to prescribe the Warfare kind of Jihad: Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyyah said: “Refuting Ahl al-Bidah (i.e. the Shias and the like) is a Jihad, to the extent that Yahya ibn Yahya said: ‘Defense of the Sunnah is more excellent than Jihad in the path of Allah.’”...
