The primary prohibition is limited to meat that is slaughtered by them because it will not be slaughtered in Allah's name, and it may be dedicated to their gods rather than to Allah. Quran 6:118 So eat of that [meat] upon which the name of Allah has been mentioned, if you are believers in His verses. Quran 6:121 And do not eat of that upon which ...

Interesting Question. Where do these people get their fatwas from? First thing to analyze is that the pagan Arabs didn't have any festival that resembled Holi. Nor did the Romans, Jews, Christians or Persians who travelled or lived in Makkah or Madina. Hence, it's not mentioned any where in Quran or in any Sahih Hadith . But I have heard why it is 'not ...

Technically, the People of the Book are defined as those people who were given a revealed Scripture from God. That is who is referred to by the term. The thing is though, that certain rulings that apply to People of the Book can be extended to other faiths as well and some can't, depending on the context of the ruling.

The Quran does not mention the name of any religion other than Islam. 3:19 And it doesn't name the followers of any other religion, except for Yahud (Jews), Nasarah (Christians), Majus (Zoroastrians) and Sabieen (Sabeans) and includes the others by saying Mushrikeen (those who do shirk). 22:17 Same goes for the well known hadith of the Prophet, though ...

This is important because improper ...

Jhatka involves cutting through the entire neck including the spine. There can be two cases for this: Either the neck is cut from the behind or from the front. In the first case it will sever the spine before the required vessels in the neck. This would make it الميتة and hence haram according to the Maliki madhab because the animal would be considered dead ...

I did not find a fatwa directly addressing Ayurvedic treatments, let alone the specific case of Panchakarma. It's going to be a difficult subject to address, since: it encompasses a whole family of different treatments, and the ruling may be different from treatment to treatment; depending on the treatment, there's varying medical evidence for its efficacy,...

Yes brother it is true as Muslims we should not claim to know the unseen as that is beyond us and Allah's domain, although Allah has reviled the glorious Quran and in it he has stated that the only religion acceptable in the eyes of Allah is Islam. This is the motivation that Scholars use to back such statements. Further more it is clearly stated in the ...

No, only Jews and Christians and their sub-sects are People of the Book, and no religion other than them, since only two groups were given the Scripture: أن تقولوا إنما أنزل الكتاب على طائفتين من قبلنا وإن كنا عن دراستهم لغافلين [We revealed it] lest you say, "The Scripture was only sent down to two groups before us, but we were of their study ...
