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 ...

Yes, the Qur'an does refer to the healing properties of honey: وَأَوْحَىٰ رَبُّكَ إِلَى النَّحْلِ أَنِ اتَّخِذِي مِنَ الْجِبَالِ بُيُوتًا وَمِنَ الشَّجَرِ وَمِمَّا يَعْرِشُونَ ۝ ثُمَّ كُلِي مِن كُلِّ الثَّمَرَاتِ فَاسْلُكِي سُبُلَ رَبِّكِ ذُلُلًا ۚ يَخْرُجُ مِن بُطُونِهَا شَرَابٌ مُّخْتَلِفٌ أَلْوَانُهُ فِيهِ شِفَاءٌ لِّلنَّاسِ ۗ إِنَّ فِي ذَٰلِكَ لَآيَةً ...

The hadiths, in Sahih Al-Bukhari » Book of Medicine » Hadith 5778 and other books, that prohibit taking poison are aimed at the intention of one trying to commit suicide or to intentionally harm oneself.

Prohibited as proven in Quran: Say, “My Lord has only forbidden immoralities – what is apparent of them and what is concealed – and sin, and oppression without right, and that you associate with Allah that for which He has not sent down authority, and that you say about Allah that which you do not know.” So Allah has forbidden immoralities. This is ...

Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyah (may Allaah have mercy on him) said: As for the miswaak, it is permissible and there is no difference of opinion concerning that. But they differed as to whether it is makrooh after the sun has passed the meridian, and there are two well known views, both of which were narrated from Ahmad. But there is no shar’i evidence ...

It looks like by a few sources, the conclusion is that if they are harmful, then they are haram. But if there are types that are proven, by means of examinations and laboratory tests carried out by trustworthy scientists, to contain natural flavourings only, and they do not contain any haraam substances and are not harmful to the users or others, then ...

Sufficient for us is Allah, and [He is] the best Disposer of affairs. There is no will or power except ...

There is a difference of opinion about the permissibility of overeating, but there is an agreement on the limit being one-third of one's stomach (contextual). As per Qur'an verse 7:31: يَا بَنِي آدَمَ خُذُوا زِينَتَكُمْ عِندَ كُلِّ مَسْجِدٍ وَكُلُوا وَاشْرَبُوا وَلَا تُسْرِفُوا ۚ إِنَّهُ لَا يُحِبُّ الْمُسْرِفِين O children of Adam, take your ...

Your question talks about an unknown future based on assumptions. I would start with referring to the below Hadith: It was narrated that Abu Hurairah said: "The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said: 'The strong believer is better and more beloved to Allah than the weak believer, although both are good. Strive for that which will benefit you, seek the help ...

In Islam, it is not allowed to behave or wear dresses like the opposite gender. The same goes for burqa for men. It is completely haram. Even if I take COVID-19 into consideration, burqa isn't halal for men. It will be halal only if the burqa could save him from the virus. Because it doesn't have a filter rate of 100%.

Yes. You need to cover the parts to prevent the droplets. Some points that have been highlighted by the fuqaha' : The prayer and other acts of worship that require wudu' (ablution) are not abolished due to chronic urinary incontinence. It is necessary to clean the private part first and then cover the parts by wrapping it with cotton, covered with a ...

It is not allowed for Muslim Men and Muslim Women to adopt attires that make them similar to the opposite gender, and whomever commits this sin has been cursed by the Prophet Peace Be Upon Him himself. However, if you are above the islamophobic propaganda and stereotypes, and want to adopt a burqa like attire to cover the whole body, I suggest looking into ...

The man is being reassured. The man came to the Prophet (ﷺ) seemingly worried that he is having those thoughts which he would never utter... and the Prophet's (ﷺ) response of praise of Allah (ﷻ) is letting him know that there's nothing to worry about as it is just a whisper [so long as he continues to do what he's doing i.e., not acting on the whispers]. ...

Let's say you eat 2 more extra spoons. That's definitely not haram, but obviously not recommended. Islam wants balance for everything (The only thing that should have no end is having more good deeds) If you eat like 10X more meals, it's harmful to your own body. Harming your self is haram. (I do understand that eating 2 more extra spoons is also harmful, ...

It depends on your view: Some people consider smoking to be haram, and some consider it makruh. Smoking shisha, contrary to people's belief, is harmful. But since e-cigs claim not to be harmful, this would make them neither haram nor makruh. However, if these studies are proven to be wrong and they are harmful, then again you have to go back to your own ...

According to the ruling of Grand Ayatollah Khamenei as a Shia Marja' al Taqlid: Shaving (thread) and decoration is not considered as a haram act by itself, but it would be haram if it is counted as the cause of concupiscence stimulation or the man makes himself as a women. Therefore in accordance with the mentioned ruling we can say that perhaps it ...

i use my answer from other question. In addition to being harmful, as said in other answer, there are other reasons: it is israf, and israf is prohibited in many ayats. It is israf because it is waste of time of you and all resources that are spent (work and water etc.) and used (fields) and destructed (wild nature that was in place of fileds) to produce ...
