Is spending on two big Internet sites for Islam in same building excessive
Fatwa No: 81543


Isn't it excessive spending (Esraf) to have two big Internet sites for Islam provided from two different offices in the same building and spending more than 5 millions QR per year where "dawa" through the Internet has less results than direct action and contact, especially with the non-Muslims living and coming every day to Qatar?


Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds; and blessings and peace be upon our Prophet Muhammad and upon all his Family and Companions. Internet sites provide many useful services for Muslims anywhere in the world. So, they should be multiplied, encouraged and those who feed them should be thanked and motivated. The two sites mentioned in your question do not only give Fatwa, but they also include the Qur’an, its Tafsir (explanation), the Noble Hadith, encyclopedias, the Islamic library and many useful articles. These are all very important for any Muslim anywhere. No doubt that Fatwa to Muslim’s questions from all over the world requires many more sites. In addition, if one looks at the various sites reserved for perversive actions, one should be very delighted to see the propagation of Islamic sites. And this has nothing to do with Esraf excessive expenditure till there are enough sites to fulfill all Muslims need. And Allah knows best.
