    Assalaamu alaykum Shaykh, and may Allaah be merciful to you. I have a question about kufr (disbelief).

What is the ruling thereof? Is that.. More

  • Denying a story stated in the Quran is an act of disbelief Date: 14-11-2015

    Dear Shaikh, assalamu Alaykum. What is the sharia ruling on a person who says that the story of Prophet Ibrahim, alayhi as-salam, that fire did not burn him is an imaginary story and not a real story because Allah has created fire with the ability to burn things so how could Prophet Ibrahim not burn in it?

  • Satisfaction at the sentencing of a Muslim by man-made laws Date: 27-10-2015

    Assalaamu alaykum. Is it disbelief if you feel some kind of satisfaction when a Muslim is sentenced by a taghut legislation?

And would it also be disbelief if you had.. More

    Assalamu alaykum. I read that praising the religion of the disbelievers is disbelief. What does that mean exactly? Are the following statements included in that:1. "The idea of democracy/communism is good by itself." (Meaning if you would view this matter irrespective of islam, but because it contradicts islam, you reject it.) 2. "Judaism is a good.. More

  • Ruling on studying at the hands of non-Muslim teachers Date: 12-10-2015

  • Referring to the Nasaara as Christians is not unbelief Date: 30-4-2015

    Your Fatwa 17225 deals about calling the Nasaaraa Christians and that one should avoid this. Is someone sinnig if he still calls the Nasaaraa Christians, while he knows that one should avoid it?
