A long answer is available at Islam Q&A, article 40882. In this case, the Qur'an itself provides an explanation: They ask you about wine and gambling. Say, "In them is great sin and [yet, some] benefit for people. But their sin is greater than their benefit." And they ask you what they should spend. Say, "The excess [beyond needs]." Thus Allah makes ...

Is the woman allowed to wear Leather/PVC/latex trousers or catsuits to look sexy for her husband? Yes, she is allowed to wear such cloths. Are a couple allowed to visit a sex shop together? In my opinion (also by some scholars) No. Because in Islam, we are not allowed to see Awra of other men or women. and these sex shops have all sorts of nudity (...

The body which we are using isn't our own property, it is what Allah has given us to use and live in the world and Allah will take it back once we will die. Allah has forbidden harming yourself and this is the reason why suicide is haram in Islam because it is self-harm. And spend in the way of Allah and do not throw [yourselves] with your [own] hands ...

Mahram is derived from haram, it literally means "forbidden people", i.e. people with whom sex and marriage is forbidden. According to the Quran, sex is only permitted with one's wives and female slaves(1,2): Quran 23:5-6 And they who guard their private parts. Except from their wives or those their right hands possess, for indeed, they will not be ...

Pure water by itself is fundamentally halal. If there are haram impurities involved, the water would also become haram; not because of the water itself, but because of what's in it. So, for example, if it was drawn from a small pool in which someone was storing their dead pig carcasses, we shouldn't drink it (most would chalk that up to common sense though)...

Sexual fantasies, I would say, are not uncommon for Muslims. The only problem, for men especially, is that sexual fantasies may lead to something more, including masturbation, or even worse, committing zina. That being said however, having sexual fantasies is by no means a sin, as long as the person does not act upon it. Sexual fantasies are among the ...

Masturbation is called استمناء in fiqh. There are no Quranic verses or authentic hadith that directly mention it.

Except from ...

If shaitan cast the image in your imagination and ...

No it is not. There are tons of quranic verses and hadith that describe about the ethical behaviour and clearly state that immodesty/unabashedness is a big sin and one must control not to do it. To give a small but a very heavy reference is Surah An-Nur 30,31 Tell the believing men to reduce [some] of their vision and guard their private parts. That is ...

It is different in each branch. And I must say that it is not easy (or maybe even possible) to infer these rules only from Quran. In Shia Islam Only fishes with scale and also shrimp are halal. All other aquatic animals are haram. In Sunni Islam Hanafi branch: All fishes except squids are halal. Shafi'i branch: there are 4 different viewpoints: (It seems ...

Let alone the naked women, Islam doesn't even allow a man to look into a woman's eyes(with lust). Every muslim is obligated to lower his/her gaze when talking or facing a person of opposite sex. An-Nūr (Ayaah 30 - 31): Tell the believing men to reduce [some] of their vision and guard their private parts. That is purer for them. Indeed, Allah is ...

Talking from a Shia perspective, if it is a tradition of our society then there is no problem to celebrate it as long as no Haram action is performed during the celebration. We have a similar celebration called Nowruz which is not Islamic and celebrates the beginning of spring. [Actually there are some Ahadeeth which demonstrates the religious importance of ...

An intoxicant is defined, for legal purposes in Islam, as anything that dulls the senses and induces a state of mental fogginess (e.g. to the point where one is unaware of what one does). For example, one such principle is mentioned in the following narration from `Umar (ra) وَالْخَمْرُ مَا خَامَرَ الْعَقْلَ And khamr is what confuses and stupefies the mind ...

Islam does promote modesty and haya. If both genders in coeducation retain modesty and haya which has been explained by Islam then it is not haram to be in coeducation. Hazrat Ayesha RA taught hadith to our sahaba kara'am in parda. Abu Musa al-Ash'ari says:"Never had we (the companions) had any difficulty for the solution of which we approached Aisha and ...

It is not only muslims, people of every religion give emphasis to halaal and haraam. Halaal is just an Arabic word for what is lawful and encouraged. Haraam is just an Arabic word for what is sinful and prohibited. As pointed out, these two are just the extremities. A lot of categories and subcategories come between these two (read this and this). There is ...

There are some ingreidents in Sushi that need investigation. Shellfish, such as shrimp and crab. Most Sunni schools of thought regard them as halal. However, many Hanafis regard them as haram or makrooh. While Jafari fiqh considers shrimp and prawn as halal, crab and non-scaled sea creatures (such as eel) are haram. Mirin is a Japanese condiment that has ...

It is forbidden for Muslims to imitate non-Muslims.

We said, "O Allah's Messenger (sallallahu 'alaihi wa sallam) ! Do you mean ...

First I'd like to mention that the mixing in schools, universities and is haram and very dangerous especially for young and also for adults. Because it leads to many evils and haram things.

Salam. There are two views regarding eating meat of horse. I will try to write both below. But I will try to clear before that there is no order in Quran about the horse being halal or haram. So we will rely on Ahadith as: Eating Horse is Halal: This term is more accepted because it has some valid ahadith. It is stated in Bukhari as: Narrated Jabir bin `...

Your assumption is right. Gelatin is derived from animals. However, there are some gelling agents such as pectin that come from plants. These are carbohydrate based and are not chemically related to animal gelatin. I think these are called vegetable gelatin and might be what you saw on the label. When it comes to whether it’s Halal, I suggest you make your ...

If a husband and wife can be naked, and have sex, with each other [Surah al-Muminun 23:5-6], then surely they can do other things together? The verses of Hijab of a woman do not apply in front of her husband. There is no ayah or sahih hadith that forbids a woman to wear provocative clothing for her husband. In fact, she will probably be rewarded, Allaho ...

If I understand your question (which is not easy, as it written in atrocious English) you are asking whether it is halal to pay someone to write your school work for you. I would suggest that it is only halal if the real author puts his or her name on the piece of school work. If you put your name on it you are perpetrating a fraud.
