The finance minister of Fir’oun was Kharbeel Bin Nauhaabeel who was a Mu’min who had concealed his Imaan for a hundred years. He had met the Sahaabah (Companions) of Nabi Yusuf (Alayhis salaam). His wife who was also a Mu’minah, was in the employ of Fir’oun. Among her duties was to comb the hair of Fir’oun’s daughter. One day whilst combing the hair of the princess (Fir’oun’s daughter), the comb slipped from her hand. On picking up the comb, she said: Bismillaahir Rahmaanir Raheem. Surprised and perplexed, Fir’oun’s daughter exclaimed: “Do you have another god besides my father?” She responded: “My God and the God of your father is the God of the heavens and the earth. He is the One God Who has no partner.” The daughter immediately went to her father crying. Fir’oun asked: “What makes you cry?” She said: “The comber of my hair, the wife of the finance minister believes that your God, her God and the God of the heavens and the earth is One God, and that He has no partner.” Fir’oun summoned the Mu’minah and interrogated her on this issue. She fearlessly responded: “Yes, she (the daughter) spoke the truth.” Fir’oun commanded: “May you be destroyed! Reject your God and acknowledge me to be your god.” She said: “Never shall I say so.” She was then dragged, placed on her back with her hands and legs tied to four steel pegs. Her two daughters were brought. It was said to her to recant her belief otherwise the girls will be slaughtered. When she refused, the elder daughter was slaughtered in her presence. When she remained firm on her Imaan, the infant girl was slaughtered on the mother’s breast. The blood flowing all over the mother. A few moments prior to the baby being slaughtered, she (the baby) spoke and said to her mother to be firm on Imaan. Allah Ta’ala has prepared a special palace for her in Jannat. Thus, the mother remained steadfast and was tortured to death.

Judge orders hospital to treat COVID patient with experimental drug

“Within 48 hours, she’s off the ventilator”

80-year-old Judith Smemthiewicz has been treated with experimental drug.

BUFFALO, NY (WKBW) — An elderly Cheektowaga woman continues to recover form COVID-19 at Millard Fillmore Suburban Hospital in Amherst after a judge ruled that an experimental drug be used to treat her.

80-year-old Judith Smemthiewicz has been treated with experimental drug.

Judith Smemthiewicz, 80, was placed on a ventilator in late December.

Initially doctors gave her one dose of the controversial drug Ivermetic, and she improved.

“Within 48 hours, she’s off the ventilator, out of the ICU, onto a COVID floor,” explained Ralph Lorigo, family lawyer.

But her condition worsened, and just days after the first dose doctors placed her back on a ventilator.

Lorigo said the hospital refused to give her more doses of the drug.


Ralph Lorigo, attorney, represents woman’s family.

That’s when he drew up court papers and included a letter from the woman’s doctor who wrote how she improved “dramatically” after the first dose.

State Supreme Court Judge Henry Nowak ordered the hospital to administer the drug, but the hospital initially refused.

“I say to him — I’ve got a court order — we’ve relieved you of liability. My people will sign a release and I go through the history of this lady — they still object,” Lorigo explained.


Court documents filed before State Supreme Court Judge Henry Nowak.

There is debate about using Ivermectin to treat COVID.

The FDA approved drug is used mostly to treat children for head lice. But it has been effective for some COVID patients.

“Some studies report a benefit — some studies do not,” remarked Dr. Thomas Russo, chief of Infectious Disease, Jacobs School of Medicine & Biomedical Sciences, University at Buffalo.

Dr. Russo tells us the drug has received significant attention.

“Ivermectin is believed to both anti-inflammatory properties and potentially anti-viral against the new Coronavirus,” Dr. Russo noted.

Lorigo said the hospital finally agreed to give Smemthiewicz the drug again.

“And the judge finally decides that look — the family physician ordered it — the hospital has to give it to her — that’s his order and they have to continue it,” said Lorigo.

Kaleida Health, operator of Millard Suburban, issued the following written statement:

“We are aware of this family’s position. Federal privacy laws prevent us from disclosing details on the patient’s hospital stay. Moreover, as this is also a legal matter, we will not comment any further.”

Right now, Dr. Russo said there is not enough data for the National Institute of Health to recommend Ivermetic for treating COVID.

“It’s possible that it could actually make treatment less effective. It’s critical to learn how the drugs work together. It could be a slippery slope. We already do t have some treatments that are effective for the treatment of COVID, such as steroids and Remdesivir,” Dr. Russo remarked.

But Lorigo said Smemthiewicz is living proof that it works. She’s now off the ventilator and expected to be released to rehab soon.

He said the lesson here is the importance of health advocacy — in this case from her family, her doctor, and a judge.

“And because of that — this woman is alive today and on her way to being healthy,” Lorigo stated, holding up a photo of the woman.



The Majlis has published several articles warning Muslims about the kufr danger of the Gulen movement which is ensconced in American conspiracy aimed at the destruction of Islam. The following is an article by some anonymous Muslim brother. It correctly  explains the  satanic Gluenist  movement operating under Islamic guise. There is nothing Islamic about this evil shaitaani conspiratorial gang.


Warning to the SA Muslim concerning The Gulen movement. (Also known as Hizmet and Feto)

FETO or HIZMET is run by a man named Fethullah Gulen, a Turkish ‘cleric’ who is in exile in the US. Despite many extradition requests from the Turkish government, the US have refused to hand him over for trial and prosecution in Turkey.

This organisation was behind the failed coup in Turkey to overthrow the elected government run by president Erdoğan. There was also an assassination attempt on the life of Erdoğan.

Read the details on the failed coup here:

This terrorist organisation recruits it’s members and followers under the guise of ‘religious and educational institutions’ and indoctrinates the minds of people thereby.

View attached infographics for a detailed overview.

The Gülen movement is deemed a designated terrorist group by the following countries and international organizations:

● Turkey, since May 2016

● Gulf Cooperation Council, since October 2016

● Organization of Islamic Cooperation, since October 2016

● Pakistan, since December 2018

● Northern Cyprus, recognised only by Turkey and considered by the international community to be part of the Republic of Cyprus, also designated the Gülen movement as a terrorist organization in July 2016.

Note the number of Schools linked to Hizmet in South Africa:

Strangely enough, they also have a system of ‘Imamiyyah’, and claim that Rasulullah صلى الله علیه وسلم is present at their sporting events and directly commands them. Naoodhubillah!

Unfortunately, South Africa has become one of the main bases for this terrorist organisation outside of Turkey and the US. The Nizamiye complex in Midrand is the biggest of them.

How the Gulenists set up camp in SA:

Please stay clear of this organisation and it’s institutes, they will indoctrinate our minds and our children’s minds too!

They have strange beliefs that are alien to Islam and are suspiciously cosy with the enemies of Islam!

See the below fatwa of a senior Mufti of South Africa:


The beliefs of Fathullah Gulen – Is he a Muslim & can we go to his Masjid?


Assalamu alaykum wa Rahmatullah wa Barakatuhu

I hope that Mufti Saheb is keeping well Insha Allah

Attached is a book published by the Ministry of Religious Affairs of Turkey. It details the beliefs of Fathullah Gulen. Fathullah Gulen has been involved in great controversy and has a base in SA, in Midrand.

Can Mufti Saheb kindly study this work and provide the following responses:

1. What is the status of a person who has the beliefs stated in the book?

2. What is the status of performing Salaah behind a person who has these beliefs?

3. Is it permitted to attend Salaah at a Masjid built and run by a person or persons with such beliefs?

4. Is it permitted to host major programmes at a Masjid built and run by a person who has such beliefs?

Question: According to a Hadith published by The Majlis, people in a Musjid are safe from contracting any disease. A Mufti says that it is possible for a disease to be contracted in a Musjid. What is the correct interpretation for the Hadith? Is the Mufti right?


The Hadith in question is: “When disease descends from the sky, it is diverted from the people of the Musaajid.”

Now, when Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said that disease is diverted away from the Musjid, it is imperative for the Mufti Sahib to renew his Imaan. His implied refutation of the categorical negation of disease in the Musjid by our Nabi (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) is kufr. The Hadith is sufficient for us, the Mu’mineen. There is no need for lopsided interpretation to accommodate zigzag fatwas which are the inspirations of Iblees, and which are pliantly designed for acceptance by sceptic minds which incline to kufr. What the Mufti said is baseless and stems from doubt and uncertainty.

Disease descending from the sky is turned away from the Musaajid. Nabi (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said so with emphasis just as he proclaimed Laa adwaa (Disease is not contagious). This is absolute. Thus, no one will contract the disease in the Musjid as the super-munaafiqeen claim. If a musalli contracts the disease, it does not follow that he had contracted it inside the Musjid. He acquired the disease outside the Musjid by the decree of Allah Ta’ala. So if a diseased person comes to the Musjid it does not follow that he became diseased inside the Musjid. He came from outside with the disease.

There was no need for the Mufti to have embarked on his unnecessary exposition and baatil extrapolation which ostensibly is in refutation of the claim of Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam).

Furthermore, if a munaafiq becomes afflicted with the disease in the Musjid, it simply means that Allah’s Athaab has overtaken him. There is no place for the munaafiq to hide and to save himself from Allah’s Athaab. While the descending disease dare not afflict the Mu’mineen, the munaafiq is divinely earmarked for Allah’s athaab, hence the Musjid offers no succour for him. The athaab befalling the Munaafiq in the Musjid in no way whatsoever negates the veracity of our Nabi’s categorical claim.

It is correct that the virus will not afflict one in the Musjid because Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said so. Hitherto no one has proved nor can prove that anyone contracted the covid satanism inside the Musjid.

It is incorrect to understand that the plague can enter the Musjid on account of it being a mercy and a cause for Shahaadat. Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said that a plague will not settle in a Musjid, and this was said bilaa tafseel. The hukm is general, without exceptions, hence may not be restricted, watered down or assailed with zigzaggery by means of personal opinion to titillate the palates of those whose Imaan is riddled with doubt and uncertainty to the degree of kufr.

There is no reason for interpreting away the clear, apparent (zaahiri) meaning of the Hadith. There is no other Hadith conflicting with this Hadith. Hence there is no need for reconciling conflicting narrations with any interpretation. If some decrepit mind conjectures some mirage of conflict based on an oblique vision of realities on the ground, then the safest for his Imaan is to hammer out an interpretation to argue away into oblivion the ostensible contradiction. But never should he resort to an interpretation which will entangle him in kufr.

Kufr has become a norm in the Ummah. There is an imperative need for extra-diligence when dealing with Ahaadith which appear contradictory to minds scarred and jarred by the flotsam of kufr spewed out by the university education. While the Qur’aan emphatically declares: “This is the Kitaab. There is not the slightest doubt in it”, the brains of Muslims of this era have become necrotized with doubts, uncertainly and even downright kufr, hence the stupid apologetic baseless interpretations in the kufr bid to appease the convoluted brains of the modernist zindeeqs such as the KUFFAAR medical doctors whose kufr, the juhhaal molvis are lapping up. Allah Ta’ala says:

“The Haqq is from your Rabb, therefore, do not become of the doubters.”

While HIZBUSH SHAITAAN, bootlicking the Atheists says that the Musjid is a ‘super-spreader” of disease, Allah Ta’ala, via His Nabi says that disease which descends from the sky is diverted away from the Musjid.

The Science is Conclusive: Masks and Respirators do NOT Prevent Transmission of Viruses

Dr. Denis G Rancourt, PhD
Mon, 20 Apr 2020 20:47 UTC

Comment: The following review of the scientific literature on wearing surgical and other facemasks as a means of preventing the transmission of SARS-CoV-2 and thus preventing contraction of ‘Covid-19’ was published a month ago. And absent some miraculous suspension of decades of hard science on the transmission of viruses, it’s settled


Masks and respirators do not work. There have been extensive randomized controlled trial (RCT) studies, and meta-analysis reviews of RCT studies, which all show that masks and respirators do not work to prevent respiratory influenza-like illnesses, or respiratory illnesses believed to be transmitted by droplets and aerosol particles.

Furthermore, the relevant known physics and biology, which I review, are such that masks and respirators should not work. It would be a paradox if masks and respirators worked, given what we know about viral respiratory diseases: The main transmission path is long-residence-time aerosol particles (< 2.5 μm), which are too fine to be blocked, and the minimum-infective-dose is smaller than one aerosol particle.

The present paper about masks illustrates the degree to which governments, the mainstream media, and institutional propagandists can decide to operate in a science vacuum, or select only incomplete science that serves their interests. Such recklessness is also certainly the case with the current global lockdown of over 1 billion people, an unprecedented experiment in medical and political history.

Review of the Medical Literature

Here are key anchor points to the extensive scientific literature that establishes that wearing surgical masks and respirators (e.g., “N95”) does not reduce the risk of contracting a verified illness:

  • Jacobs, J. L. et al. (2009) “Use of surgical face masks to reduce the incidence of the common cold among health care workers in Japan: A randomized controlled trial”, American Journal of Infection Control, Volume 37, Issue 5, 417 – 419.
About the mask


The concept of class equality or a classless society is a stupid myth. Allah Ta’ala says in the Qur’aan Majeed:
“We distribute their livelihood among them in this worldly life, and We elevate the ranks of some over others so that some will take others as workers.” (Az-Zukhruf, Aayat 32)
Even the Ambiya (Alayhimus salaam) are not equal in status as the Qur’aan Majeed confirms. However,
higher worldly status is not a factor for the attainment of lofty status in the Aakhirat and for Proximity to Allah Ta’ala. The criterion for Closeness to Allah Ta’ala is Taqwa. Allah’s Proximity is proportionate to the degree of Taqwa. The Qur’aan Majeed states:
“Verily, the noblest among you by Allah are those whose Taqwa is the most.”
Closeness to Allah Ta’ala is not related to worldly status. Taqwa is the treasure and consequence of total obedience to Allah Ta’ala — obedience to the Shariah and the Sunnah of Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam).

What is the Fatwa on selling TV’s? We always understood it to be Haraam. Please comment on the following fatwa of a mufti:
“QUESTION Is it permissible for one to sell a TV?
ANSWER Televisions are mainly used for the purpose of viewing Haram content. The harms of television are known to all. However, a TV does not serve a singular purpose, rather it is a multi-purpose item. It has several permissible uses such as, displaying Salah times; Deeni advices; CCTV; education. In principle, if an item has both permissible and impermissible uses, it will be permissible for one to sell it. The income from such a sale will be Halal. If the buyer uses the item for sinful activities, the seller will not be responsible if he does not employ impermissible methods to sell the TV, for example, advertising the quality of the screen and sound through animate pictures and music.” (End of fatwa)
The Mufti dwells in gross error. His zig-zag fatwa is baseless. The objective of a fatwa is guidance, not misguidance. With the zig-zag fatwa the mufti aids in the commission of sin and transgression in flagrant violation of the Qur’aanic prohibition: “Do not mutually aid one another in sin and transgression.”
Since this mufti has made selling televisions halaal, what is the purpose of his statement: “Televisions are mainly used for the purpose of viewing Haram content.”? It is a meaningless comment which highlights the zig-zag trajectory of today’s muftis. In view of the fact that the primary purpose of television is viewing zina, fisq and fujoor and its foundational principle is haraam pictography, the actual fatwa is that it is haraam to sell these satanic devices. It is an illustration of puerility for the mufti to introduce in his fatwa the principle pertaining to selling items which can be used for both permissible and impermissible acts. Mention of this principle is his zig-zag attempt to camouflage his egregious error. It is not like selling a knife or a gun which are primarily used for halaal purposes. Since television is primarily used for haraam, he was supposed to issue a short and crisp fatwa of hurmat (prohibition). The question pertains to television in general, and that implies television used in haraam ways for haraam purposes. The question does not pertain to monitors/screens. The questioner asks about television employed in haraam manner, that is with pictures, for haraam purposes, that is zina, porno, fisq and fujoor. No one is so stupid as to ask about permissibility of mere screens / monitors used for Salaat timetables. The mufti has degenerated into a moronic quagmire with his zig -zagging style of ‘fatwas’. Any moron can understand from the question that the person asks about pornotelevision — television displaying pictures and the deluge of filth and muck disseminated by television. While he acknowledges that television is mainly used for haraam, he issues his fatwa on something which is
totally unrelated to the haraam content. Since the questioner posed his question regarding the ‘content’ which
the mufti himself describes as ‘haraam content’, his fatwa of permissibility is satanically zig -zagging designed to mislead and misguide. If the device is required for a lawful purpose, the questioner would have posed the
question differently. The halaal usage is the exception. Television is used for “haraam content” in 99.9% of cases. The mufti who appears to be a victim of western liberalism, viewed the question with squint eyes or in an upside down manner which obscured the reality of the hurmat, hence the zig-zag ‘halaal’ consequence.
Selling television is HARAAM. The income is haraam. A glaring stupidity in the ‘fatwa’ is that the mufti has not answered the question posed to him. While the mustafti’s (the one who asked the question) question pertains to carrion, the mufti’s answer relates to halaal mutton. In other words, the mustafti’s question relates to the usual popular television depictions in which features pictures of animate objects, naked women, lewdness, immorality, fisq and fujoor. The reason why the mustafti seeks a fatwa on an issue which is conspicuously haraam, is because the ulama-e-soo’ who are stupidly understood to be ‘senior muftis’ or stupid ‘grand muftis’, have halaalized this device of Iblees. However, since the conscience of the mustafti is suffering
pangs of confusion, he posed the question in an endeavour to assuage his heart which by virtue of Imaan repels baatil. Regarding the heart of the Mu’min, Rasulullah ( S a l l a l l a h u a l a y h i wasallam) said: “Sin is
that which disturbs your heart.” In order to gain the correct fatwa, Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) instructed the true Mu’min: “Seek a fatwa from your heart.” In this age of fisq and fujoor in which the muftis are trading the Shariah for tuppence, one has to be extremely circumspect and not hasten to seek answers from muftis. They pave the pathway of Jahannam with their corrupt and convoluted fatwas of dhalaal.
The mustafti did not ask a fatwa regarding Salaat timetables or Qur’aanic Aayaat displayed on the screens of
such televisions which are used for only halaal purposes. The mustafti who has more brains than most muftis, is fully aware that it will be downright stupid to ask about Salaat timetables and the like. Any moron understands what exactly the mustafti’s question is all about. But the zig zagging mufti with his zig zagging
twaddle ‘daleels’, twiddles with the Deen with his silly and flaccid diversionary ‘proofs’ with which he diverts the attention from the actual question.


Q. Why did our Nabi (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) say that one should flee from the leper? Does this not indicate that disease is contagious?
A. You may pose this question to Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) on the Day of Qiyaamah if you are afforded an opportunity of meeting him. Why are you stupidly seeking to cancel Rasulullah’s explicit La Adwaa (Disease is not contagious) declaration with the leper Hadith? Why are you casting a blind eye in this direction? Only nifaaq or kufr or extreme deficiency of Imaan constrains a person to abrogate the Ahkaam of the Shariah by means of creating satanic contradictions. Regardless of the reason for fleeing from a leper, the irrefutable fact is that Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said: “La Adwaa”. This suffices for a Mu’min, not for a munaafiq. If someone decides to flee from a leper, he may do so, but he may not utilize the narration
to deny the immutable Truth of the statement made by our Nabi (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) regarding his negation of the kufr idea of contagion which was the belief of the mushrikeen, and which is still the idea of the atheists of this era. Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) advised fleeing from a leper because of Imaani
weakness of people such as you. The fleeing is not for those whose Imaan is sound. While people cite this narration to bolster the ideas of the atheists, they conveniently ‘forget’ that Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) ate together with a leper from the same bowl. He said to the leper: “Eat and have tawakkul on Allah.” They will not mention that the lepers were not banned from the Musjid nor were they quarantined,
etc. A person who cites this or similar narrations to bolster the kuffaar theory and to scuttle the negation of contagion by Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) do so at the peril of losing their Imaan.



Q. Is it permissible for a wife to take a job outside the home? Can the husband prevent her?
A. It is not permissible for the wife to take a job outside the home even with the permission
of the husband. It is not permissible for her to do any work even from home without the
permission of her husband. The maintenance is the responsibility of the husband. If he provides the maintenance, and he refuses permission for his wife to work and earn even from home, then it will not be permissible for her to undertake any job even from within the precincts of the home. The husband is under Shar’i obligation to prohibit and prevent his wife from leaving the house to work or to participate in any kind of function.

Q. My husband works in an office among females who are immodestly dressed. He says that he keeps his eyes cast down. He also says that Muslim doctors and even Ulama work with women. What is the Shariah’s law in this regard?
A. The doctors and even Ulama who do not observe proper Hijaab and who work with women are not the Shariah. Their activities and their mingling with women in their professions and occupations may not be presented as a valid basis. The only basis is the Shariah, not the practices of people even if they are great Ulama. If their practices are in conflict with the Shariah, it will remain haraam and not become halaal because they happen to be ‘great’ Ulama. It is not proper and not permissible for a Muslim male doctor to attend to female patients. He should divert them to female doctors. Only if there is a valid reason upheld by the Shariah may a male doctor attend to a female and vice versa. There are numerous non-Muslim female
doctors who can handle Muslim female patients. A Muslim doctor is not supposed to work in a hospital where he has to incumbently interact with females. Thus, their actions are not Islamic proofs for permissibility.
Your husband should himself make a sincere attempt to work elsewhere where he will not be in the company of women. He is bound to fall into the pit of zina. Shaitaan and the Nafs are deceiving him.

Q. Is it permissible to donate human milk?
A. Human breast milk is haraam. Breast milk is only halaal for under two year old infants. Donating or selling human milk or any part of the human body is haraam.

Q. Will a woman be a faasiq if she does not wear niqaab?
A. A woman who does not wear Niqaab in public is worse than a faasiqah. She is a faajirah (immoral).

Q. Will the wife be disobedient if she refuses to submit to her husband’s demand for oral sex?
A. The one who makes such a filthy satanic demand is worse than a pig. Oral or shaitaan sex is haraam. The wife should not submit to the swine-filth of the husband. She will not be disobedient. She is under Shar’i obligation to refuse the haraam instructions and haraam lusts of her husband. How can a human being who is termed Ashraful Makhluqaat (The Noblest of Creation) descend into such depths of swine-inequity?

Q. Is marriage to a Salafi girl valid?
A. Marriage with a Salafi girl is valid just as marriage with a Muslim prostitute is valid. However, such a marriage will be full of misery, hence inadvisable. There will be no compatibility and the marriage is likely
to break down and end in divorce. The Deeni differences and conflicts between Salafis and the Muqallideen of the Math-habs constitute an unbridgeable chasm.

Q. Does the period of breastfeeding differ for boys and girls?
A. The period of breastfeeding is two years for both boys and girls.

Q. My mother is extremely sick and complains a lot. What advice can I give her?
A. Be of service to her to the best of your ability. Tell her that it comes in the Hadith that sickness is a purifier. It cleanses us from all our sins provided that we do not complain. Complaining will not cure the sickness. On the contrary the sickness will become worse. Sickness is also a ni’mat (favour) of Allah Ta’ala. He purifies us here on earth with sicknesses and other difficulties so that we can enter Jannat fully purified. Advise your mother to keep her tongue constantly engaged in Thikrullaah. Maut can come at any moment. Therefore, the tongue should always be engaged in some Thikr to ensure departure from this dunya with
the Kalimah on the tongue.

Q. Is imitation jewellery permissible?
A. Imitation jewellery is permissible for women except rings. Rings must be of either gold or silver.

Q. Is it proper for a man to marry a second wife only for the sake of his lust?
A. Allah Ta’ala permits a man to marry four women. As far as ‘lust’ is concerned, everyone marries to satisfy his/her lust. The primary motive for marrying even one wife is to gratify lust. Initially people marry only to satisfy lust even if only one wife is taken. Allah Ta’ala has created lust in people, hence He is aware that men require more than one wife to satisfy their lust lawfully. Never voice yourself against any Law of Allah Ta’ala. Recite Istighfaar and make Taubah.

Q. Why is it not permissible for women to attend walimahs. During the time of Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam), they would go to walimahs.
A. Just as it is not permissible for women to attend the Musjid even if there are separate entrances, so too is it forbidden for women to attend ‘walimahs’ nowadays. Furthermore, the ‘walimahs’ nowadays are farcical and bid’ah. In fact, it is not permissible for even men to attend the reception organized by the girl’s parents on the day of the Nikah. Such a reception is not the walimah. Women used to attend the Musjid for Salaat during the age of Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam). However, this was unanimously banned later by the Sahaabah.
The same applies to walimahs and to all other merrymaking functions.

Q. How many holes may a lady pierce in her ears?
A. A lady may pierce her ears only with one hole in each ear. More than one is the style of the kuffaar.

Q. My husband has cheated on me. He has struck up adulterous relationships. My heart is broken. I don’t know what to do. My health is suffering. I want to run away. Please give me some advice.
A. Countless women are undergoing the same heart-breaking problems. When men lack Taqwa, they conduct themselves like atheists. They really do not believe that Allah Ta’ala is seeing them and that the Recording
Angels are writing their misdeeds. However, do understand well that your broken heart is a wonderful treasure by Allah Ta’ala. Allah Ta’ala, in His Own Words, said to Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam):
“I am with every broken heart.” Your grief will not be in vain. You will receive immense rewards for patiently bearing the grief. Focus more on Allah Ta’ala. Do not ruin your health on account of the shenanigans of your husband. Maintain your health and use it to gain nearness to Allah Ta’ala. Increase ibaadat. Life on earth is short. It is full of trials. May Allah Ta’ala grant you strength and steadfastness on the Deen. May Allah Ta’ala guide your husband and protect you.

Q. A man has two wives. The one wife lives with him while the other wife lives in her own house about 100 kilometres away. This wife demands equal nights. What is the Shariah’s rule?
A. In the scenario mentioned by you, if the wife who lives 100 kilometres away desires equal nights, then she has to reside in a house procured for her by her husband in the town where he lives. She cannot demand equal nights living in her own house 100 km from her husband.

Q. I do not allow my children to visit their grandparents – my parents and my wife’s parents.
They have televisions, and in general they do not observe the rules of the Shariah such as purdah, mushtabah / haraam food, etc. They are accusing me of breaking family ties. Am I breaking family ties?
A. In fact, it is not permissible to send your children to relatives who are not strict on the Deen. Refraining from sending the children does not mean that you are severing family ties. It is the Waajib obligation of parents to ensure that the Akhlaaq of their children are not compromised by relatives. Nowadays, the safest is to stay at home, and not to visit even relatives. We are trapped in an era of fitnah and fasaad. A home where the Deen is observed is a holy sanctuary visited by the Malaaikah of Rahmat. On the other hand, houses such as the homes of your parents are haunts for the shayaateen. These people lack the haziest idea of the meaning of family ties and what constitutes disruption of breaking of family ties. Furthermore, it is haraam to uphold
‘family ties’ when in conflict with the Shariah.

Q. Is there a special thikr or amal for anxiety and depression? When my evil past comes to mind, I develop anxiety and go into depression.
A. When anxiety develops, do not brood on the past. Do not entertain the thought which is the cause for the anxiety. Instead, lapse into Thikrullah. Perform two raka’ts Nafl and engage in Thikrullah. Shaitaan tries to derail a person by causing anxiety in this manner. A Mu’min equipped with the weapon of Thikr does not suffer depression. Anxiety is an assault of shaitaan, and its antidote is Thikrullah. Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said: “Shaitaan sits glued on the heart of man. When he (man) makes thikr, shaitaan
flees. When he (man) is oblivious (ghaafil), shaitaan casts his waswasah.”

Q. I have found out that my husband is conducting relationships with women via his cell phone. He refuses to give me the password. What should I do?
A. 99% of the men of this age, including molvis and sheikhs, are involved in cellphone zina and pornography. There is nothing you will be able to do in these circumstances. Men and women are drowning in deluges of moral filth – zina and porno – of the cellphone. Little children are also addicted to this device of shaitaan. The
entire Ummah across the board, is buffeted madly in this whirlpool of cellphone filth. People no longer have Imaan. They have become atheists. They are in entirety bereft of any concept of Allah’s Omnipresence. They
have become munaafiqs. Whilst they blabber with their mouths about the Recording Angels, they sin flagrantly in front of these Malaaikah and with Allah Ta’ala looking at them. But since they do not really believe in the Presence of Allah Ta’ala and His Malaaikah, they sin recklessly. You can only constantly offer good advice to your husband and adopt Sabr. If you are unable to bear his evil abuse with patience then your marriage will end. Thus, your choice is between Sabr and Talaaq.
Q. The separation between a husband and wife was in terms of Khula’. Is it correct that the Iddat of this woman is 30 days?
A. The Iddat of a woman whether separated by Talaaq or Khula is the same. It is three haidh periods if not pregnant. If pregnant, it ends with the delivery of the child.


Q. There is a WhatsApp group thing, which appears to be gambling. A number of people contribute money. Lots are drawn. One person collects the whole sum of the contributions. A lot of muslim females are now joining this group and recruiting more people to join the group. A muslim female told me she put in R500, and she walked away with R3000. Is this scheme permissible?
They literally just add a R500 into the group, they not selling any goods or services.
For example, you added to group of 15 people. You are the 15th person, you add a R500. Once everyone has given a R500, then they pay the 1st person in the group, then they remove that person. Then you get moved to the 14th position, and they add another person to be person number 15. Then no. 15 pays a R500.
The cycle carries on until you reach number 1 on the list, then you get paid all the money paid from everyone
else. You only put in R500 once. But you will walk away with R7000.

A. The scheme is haraam gambling. It is not permissible to join this gambling group. The prize won is haraam and should be given into charity to the poor. Shaitaan has inspired these evil people with this scheme. The whole scheme from beginning to end is haraam.
