Cheating is a kind of "lie". The Qur'anic verses (ayahs) and traditions prohibiting "lie" are free from any stipulations so the word "lie" embraces all kinds of "lie" whether it is a verbal lie or a written lie or a practical lie especially when it results in trampling others' rights. إِنَّما يَفْتَرِي الْكَذِبَ الَّذينَ لا يُؤْمِنُونَ بِآياتِ اللَّهِ وَ ...

Bismillah. I'm going to give you my honest opinion on the matter, but I have no hadiths to support my answer as I don't think this issue was raised during the life of the Prophet (PBUH). Also, I am sure you will get a lot of different answers, because this might be a very opinionated question with varying views from different scholars. First of all, in my ...

If you have any other Muslim brothers (more than two, excluding you) who attend the maths session with you, you can group together after the session finishes and perform the Jumu'a prayer together, as long as Asr time didn't come.

From an Islamic point of view, one has to pray within the time window of each prayer (which is not necessarily from adhan to adhan): فَإِذَا قَضَيْتُمُ الصَّلَاةَ فَاذْكُرُوا اللَّهَ قِيَامًا وَقُعُودًا وَعَلَىٰ جُنُوبِكُمْ فَإِذَا اطْمَأْنَنتُمْ فَأَقِيمُوا الصَّلَاةَ إِنَّ الصَّلَاةَ كَانَتْ عَلَى الْمُؤْمِنِينَ كِتَابًا مَّوْقُوتًا And when you ...

Muslims are not allowed to attend events that involve music, singing, dancing, alcohol or the mixing of genders. The fact that we have these things everywhere in the western world doesn't make them permissible. Allah (SWT) says: “And leave alone those who take their religion as play and amusement, and whom the life of this world has deceived. But remind ...

I can't imagine that being friends with non-Muslims could be haram. But of course it's a matter of interpretation as we know friends could lead you to become a better individual but also for worse! So this is a two-sided medal! Here's my reasoning: First of all we are asked to be good to our neighbors, and as we know the Prophet (Peace be upon him) himself ...

Considering you can marry non-muslims, I don't see why not befriend them. "Allah forbids you not, With regard to those who Fight you not for (your) Faith Nor drive you out Of your homes, From dealing kindly and justly With them: For Allah loveth Those who are just. (Quran, 60:8)" "This day are (all) things good and pure made lawful unto you. ...

The situation and ruling differs based on your circumstances! The rulings, virtues and manners of interaction between (foreign) men and women are described in the quran (see 24:30-33).

In the name of God, the Most Merciful, the Most Kind. Answer: Your question: am I allowed to draw human organs or characteristics like a heart or talking?

Albeit my answer is from Shia Islam perspective, but it implies Sunni viewpoint to some extent, too, which on the whole can help you (God willing). The cause that the Shia Muslims perform their Salahs (prayers) in 3 times is related to the Qur'anic verses and hadiths (traditions) on the issue. Albeit the Quran has pointed out that Salah (prayer) is wajib (...
