  • Ruling on singing lyrics containing disbelief without knowing their meaning Date: 29-11-2017

    Assalaamu alaykum. In India, we have songs that contain disbelief, like "Rab bhi deewana lage", which means, 'Allah is mad about a girl'; and "Tujhme rab dikhta hai sajde sar jhukta hai", which means, 'I see God in you, and I will prostate to you.' So what is the ruling on one who sings these songs without knowing its meaning? .. More

I know that what she said was certainly haram,.. More

  • Joking about sins does not necessarily mean apostasy Date: 1-11-2017

    Assalaamu alaykum scholars. Having fun with religious concepts does not necessarily entail apostasy, does it?

For instance, he said to me, “Had I known that you had money in.. More

  • Believing Darwin's theory about origin of man amounts to disbelief Date: 17-10-2017

    Respected Shaykh. What is the status of someone who, in an attempt to reconcile the theory of evolution with the Islamic narrative of human origins, states that homo sapiens (modern humans) descended from other hominid species (all the while believing that all of this happened by Allah's Will and Power), and that thereafter, these homo sapiens went..

    Assalaamu alaykum. I asked this question before but I was told to clarify it. So, basically, I wanted to know whether if one read some defenses or justifications of the Qasida Burda, accepting it as simply praise for the Prophet Muhammad, sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam,instead of considering it to be excessive praise, and then read fatwas on the latter..

  • Accompanying Muslim who commits acts of Shirk to Hajj Date: 11-9-2017

    There is a woman who, though she claims to be Muslim, commits a lot of Shirk (polytheism). For example, she visits graves; wears "Taweez"; and goes to "Peer", fortune tellers, and magicians. She also believes in many weird things, like that the cause of rain would be such-and-such Hindu festivals, that wearing bangles would prolong the lifetime of the.. More

  • Doubting that some statements constitute disbelief Date: 7-9-2017

    I remember my aunt's husband saying something years back; I think he said something close to ‘Has allaah gone blind or something?’ or something similar.

These situations.. More
