JINNAH CAP THE SPECIAL DRESS OF THE FUSSAAQ

Question: Is it permissible to wear the Jinnah Cap, as some people say that young sheep are killed especially to make this cap?

Answer: It is not permissible to wear a Jinnah cap, and not because it is made from very young sheep, but because it is the special headdress of the fussaaq. A Jinnah cap is not an Islamic headdress. It is the headgear of the fussaaq politicians such as Mr. Jinnah. Even Molvis have adopted this item. Our senior ulama who were paragons of piety, detested the Jinnah cap. You should adhere to the simple cloth topi in which there is humility.

ULAMA WEARING WESTERN OR KUFFAR DRESS

Leave alone an Aalim, even an ordinary person – a non-Molwi—is not allowed to wear western or kuffaar clothes. Shirt and pants are kuffaar dress. In view of the fact that among laymen, this type of dress has become widespread, especially in the western world, we shall not brand every Muslim in the west who wears shirt and pants, a faasiq. But, undoubtedly, every Molwi, be he in the west or in a Muslim country, will be labeled a faasiq if he wears shirt and pants. Here in South Africa we never allow a man with shirt and pants to lead the salaat or to even stand in the Musjid to deliver a talk even if he is with the Tabligh Jamaat. He is a disgrace to the Ilm he has acquired. A Molwi who wears shirt and pants needs to be stripped of his molwiyyat. He is a disgrace to Ilm-e-Deen and to the lofty Office of Warathatul Ambiya which he is supposed to occupy. Would this Molvi have attended his dastaarbandi ceremony with a shirt and pants? Let him search his conscience and soul.

If a person has been wearing Islamic garb since childhood as is the case in Pakistan, and then he abandons such garments to adopt kuffaar dress, he will be a faasiq. But if he grew up with shirt and pants, he will not be labeled a faasiq. Nevertheless, the error of such garb will still be pointed out to him and he should be encouraged to switch to Islamic dress.

The fatwa of the mufti who declared shirt and pants jaa-iz is incorrect. The mufti sahib has grievously erred. Instead of bringing people nearer to the Deen, he opens up avenues of fisq and fujoor with such miserable fatwas. May Allah Ta’ala save us from the deceptions of shaitaan.

HABITUAL LATE COMING FOR SALAAT

QUESTION: WHAT IS THE HUKM ON HABITUALLY COMING LATE FOR SALAAT? IS THERE ANY DIFFERENCE IN THE HUKM FOR AN AALIM OR NON-AALIM?

Habitual late coming for salaat whereby a raka’t or so is missed, is undoubtedly a major sin. Salaat is the central pillar upholding the structure of the deen. Weakening this pillar is a major sin. If someone occasionally and unintentionally comes late for salaat, obviously it is not sinful. But we have seen that many of the people of knowledge have made it a habitual practice to arrive late for salaat. They have adopted a very careless attitude towards this fundamental junction of Islam. Instead of their ilm inspiring taqwa in them, they become more careless and lethargic towards observance of the ahkaam. They react like the kuffaar scientists. Who become more perverse in their kufr the more they discover of the wonders of Allah’s qudrat.

This sin applies to all—to laymen, students and to a greater degree to the ulama who are supposed to know better and not become so careless as to establish a practice of late-coming for salaat. It is incumbent for a mu’min to make preparations for his jamaat salaat well in advance of the time set for the commencement of the salaat.
The asaatizah are mainly to be blamed for this state of affairs and the students’ neglect of salaat. It is their duty to ensure that the students studying under them are regular and punctual for jamaat. Many ustaadhs continue teaching right until the iqaamah is about to start. Then they all rush to the masjid arriving late. This lackadaisical attitude towards salaat is fraught with grave consequences for one’s imaan. Salaat has become an empty, dry ritual which is regarded as a burden by most performers of salaat. The mashaaikh say: “A Mu’min in the musjid is like a fish in the water and a munaafiq in the musjid is like a wild bird in a cage.”

A habitual late-comer to salaat is undoubtedly a faasiq. He is mardudush shahaadat. The shariah does not grant the ulama exemption from regular and punctual attendance. In fact, the law applies to a greater degree to them. They have to set a better example, then the students will follow. A molwi, he is not an aalim because to qualify as an aalim, the Qur’an stipulates the quality of KHashiyat: “Verilyl, among the servants of Allah, only the ulama fear Him.”—–Qur’aan.

JALSAHS, GIRLS MADRASAHS AND PICTOGRAPHY – TAQI SAHIB’S BELATED LAMENTS

On this topic, a Brother from the UK writes:

“I refer to recent Majlis article on Taqi Usmani’s condemnation of Khatme Bukhari programmes after he, himself, having been amongst its biggest proponents for many years.

I was reminded of a Malfooz of Taqi in which he laments in a similar manner regarding the mushrooming of girl’s madrasahs. Whilst lamenting, he is reminded by someone that his own institution had a girls madrasah, to which he responded, in justification, that this was the very first one!

The short-sightedness of this justification would have been comical if the consequences and repercussions of the mushrooming of these unnatural institutes, for which he himself is the flagship pioneer, weren’t so tragic.

There are similar laments of Taqi in respect to misuse of digital photography and “Islamic” banking.

He seems blissfully unaware of the fact that his own reckless and Haraam fatwas and actions have been amongst the biggest impetuses to opening for the masses the floodgates of satanism in all these areas which today he is lamenting.

Perhaps, after his recent stunt of conducting a lengthy television interview with a young female, face to face without purdah, he will one day begin lamenting on every other molvi embarking on similarly shameless shenanigans in open public.

And, of course, the laments in the eternal abode will be irredeemable and infinitely greater. May Allah Ta‘ala protect us.

The malfooz on girls madrasahs is below. I have bolded his admission of guilt.”

(End of the Brother’s letter)

Taqi Sahib’s lament

Lamenting on the mushrooming of girls madrasahs and the production of ‘jaahilahs’, Taqi Sahib, addressing an administrator of a girls madrassah, said:

‘The number of madrassa (traditional Islamic teaching institution) for girls is now exceeding that for boys (in Pakistan). I fail to understand the emphasis been given to this phenomenon.

Are there any precedents for this from our earlier pious predecessors, the Blessed Companions, the Ta’baeen, the one who came after them or even our elders of Deoband? I fear these institutions, especially those with residential hostels for possible inappropriate mishaps.”

The administrator mentioned that even Taqi Sahibs Darul Uloom in Karachi has a girls madrasah. In response, Taqi Sahib said:

Moreover, we try our best that all teaching is via female instructors.’ (This is a silly, flapdoodle response of Taqi Sahib, in a baseless endeavour to cover up for the error of the girls madrasah which he had initiated at his madrasah. – The Majlis)

Another scholar commented that the duration of the course for females has now been extended to 8 years. Taqi Sahib said:

‘It is 6 years for the expedited track. I agree with this. Previously the 4 years course was severely deficient. The graduates were deemed aalimah (scholars) whereas in fact they remained jaahilah (grossly ignorant). “

Office, Darul Uloom Karachi, 21 Ramadan 1437/ 27 June 2017 post Zuhar

(End of Taqi Sahib’s statement)

Our Comment

Taqi Sahib’s belated admission of the gross error of girls madrasahs and jalsahs such as Bukhaari Jalsah, comes at a time when the Imaan and Akhlaaq of a great segment of the Ummah have been ruined and laid to waste. His corrupt fatwas and extreme short-sightedness have caused irreparable damage to the Ummah. The wabaal (calamity) of his convoluted fatwas has settled on him as well. Due to lack of far-sightedness which is the attribute of fiqaahat which Taqi Sahib obviously lacks, he is responsible for misleading countless of thousands of the Ummah. Furthermore, his convoluted fatwas have provided ammunition to miserable paper molvis to denounce and reject the Haqq of the Shariah which the Ulama-e-Haqq have always proclaimed.

We have been highlighting the evil of these unnatural girls madrasahs for decades as well as the evil of jalsahs. Hadhrat Maulana Ashraf Ali Thanvi (Rahmatullah alayh) has also condemned these institutions and haraam activities. But all the naseehat fell on deaf ears.

“Allah casts rijs (filth) on the brains of those who have no aql (brains).”

MORE ON THE KHATAM BUKHAARI CEREMONY ACCORDING MAULANA A.S. DESAI H.A.

Back in the year 2004 and after I attended my dastaarbandi ceremony, I wrote a letter to maulana a.s. desai h.a. regarding what I viewed during the ceremony and what his feelings were. The response was as follows:
This sinful bandah did not undergo the dastaarbandi ceremony. Firstly, it is too embarrassing a ceremony for a non-entity. I never considered myself qualified for this ceremony. Secondly, there is much riya nowadays in these ceremonies. Thirdly, Hadhrat Masihullah rahmatullah alayh was a simple buzrug and aalim of haqq. He never insisted on this ceremony, hence it was not strictly followed.
The present style of Khatam-e-Bukhaari Shareef, in the opinion of this servant is too ostentatious. Too much riya and waste of money accompany this ceremony. Lillaahiyat has departed. Things are done to impress others. Huge amounts are squandered on unnecessary expenditure. In our opinion the best way to conduct this ceremony is to restrict it to the students. Some pious ulama may be invited. There should be no fanfare and festival-like arrangement such as prevails in these days. It should be a quiet indoor affair at which the students and ustaadhs will be present. Dua should be made and the talaba be given naseehat so that they understand their own jahl. A student who has completed Bukhaari Shareef and still does not understand how little he knows and how defective his knowledge is, is truly in darkness and astray. These things have to be impressed on them. Nowadays, they get the wrong message from being turbaned and presented with certificates of qualification. When we completed at madrasah, I never had any desire for a turban or a certificate. Many years later, when I was involved with a legal matter in the court, I needed the Sanad (certificate). It was only on that account that I had to acquire it from the madrasah otherwise I have no need for certificates. We should realize our gross deficiencies and never think that we are qualified.

The invitation cards in which the students were involved display the frivolity of their nature. It testifies to the fact that they have as yet not understood what ilm is. They are like the worldly students attending secular colleges. When it was time for Dastaarbani, Hakimul Ummat Maulana Ashraf Ali THaanvi rahmatullahalayh fled and hid. I think he was brought to submit by the command of his ustaadh. But nowadays, students with extremely defective textual knowledge crave to be projected in the public. Hub-e-Jah has ruined them.
Your attitude and action were correct. Alhamdulillaaah. There was nothing to celebrate. If we keep our focus on our weaknesses, deficiencies and inadequacies, especially the evil in our nafs, then we shall understand that we have nothing to celebrate.

Ulama pursuing higher secular education

Q. I notice a growing trend among students studying in Ulooms. After becoming Aalims they pursue higher secular education, e.g. science, accounting, law. In most cases they give preference to the secular studies and the concomitant careers. Is this trend tenable in Islam?

A. They are not ‘Aalims’. They are Jaahils. These students are Signs of Qiyaamah. Among the Signs of Qiyaamah mentioned by Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) is that “the dunya will be pursued and acquired with the amal of the Aakhirat.” Also, a Sign is “that the knowledge of the Deen will be acquired for purposes other than the Deen.” They are the similitude of khanaazeer (pigs) mentioned by Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam). Our Nabi (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said: “He (i.e. the Ustaadh) who imparts Ilm (higher Deeni Ilm) to unfit persons is like one who garlands khanaazeer with pearls, diamonds and gold.” They are vile mercenaries. They are like the disgruntled and rebellious Yahood who complained to Nabi Musaa (Alayhis salaam) about the Mann and Salwa which Allah Ta’ala daily made available for them miraculously whilst they were wandering in confusion and bewilderment, lost in the Valley of Teeh for 40 years. Instead of valuing and appreciating this food which came to them from the Heaven, they demanded lentils and onions. Hadhrat Musaa (Alayhis salaam) reprimanded them: “What! Do you want to exchange that which is best for that which is inferior?” These morons parading as Aalims, are worse than those Yahood who were tired of consuming the heavenly Mann and Salwa. These miserable molvis who should regret the day they were born, are exchanging the Deen, not food as Bani Israeel had done, for the carrion of the dunya. The Deen with its sacred Qur’aanic Ilm is a hobby for them. They are truly the khanaazeer mentioned in the Hadith.

CURSE ON THOSE WHO GIVE FATWA W/O PROPER KNOWLEDGE

The Curse on Those who Give Fatwa Without Proper Knowledge

Nowadays, we can witness many persons, without proper knowledge and training, giving legal verdicts (Fatwas) on numerous issues. It is one of the gravest sins and attracts the curse of the angels.

‘Ali (radyallahu ‘anhu) reported that the Messenger of Allah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said, “Whoever gives Fatwa without knowledge, the angels of the sky and those on earth curse him.” [Ibn ‘Asaakir, Tarikh Dimashq 20/52]

The place of such an imposter is Hellfire.

It was reported that the Messenger of Allah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said, “The most audacious from among you at giving verdicts will be the most hasty from among you to enter the Hellfire.” [Ad-Daarimi 1/69]

The person issuing legal verdicts without knowledge bears the sin of those following him.

Abu Hurayra (radyallahu ‘anhu) reported that the Messenger of Allah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said, “Whoever is given a Fatwa that is not based on knowledge, his sin is borne by the one who gave the Fatwa.” [Abu Dawud 3657]

Beware of those who give Fatwas on all issues without proper knowledge. In fact our pious predecessors called such a person mad.

‘Abdullah ibn Mas’ud (radyallahu ‘anhu) said, “Whoever gives Fatwa on all the questions people asked him is a mad man.” [Ibn ‘Abd al-Barr, Jaami’ Bayaan al-‘Ilm 2/154]

There is no light and easy issue in Islam. All the Masaail are important and must be given due attention.

Imam Maalik (rahimahullah) was once asked a question, to which he replied, “I do not know.” It was then said to him, ‘But the issue is a light and easy one.’ At this he became angry, then said, “There is nothing about knowledge that is light. Haven’t you heard Allah’s saying, “We will soon cast upon you a weighty word.” [Qur’an 73:6] Knowledge, all of it is weighty; especially what one will be questioned about on the Day of Judgement.” [‘Iyad, Tarteeb al-Madaarik 1/147]

The Messenger of Allah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) warned us about this situation. We are witnessing the demise of the great scholars around the world.

‘Abdullah ibn ‘Amr (radyallahu ‘anhu) reported that the Messenger of Allah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said, “Verily, Allah does not withhold knowledge by snatching it away from his servants, but rather he withholds knowledge by taking the souls of scholars, until no scholar remains and people follow ignorant leaders. They are asked and they issue Fatwas without knowledge. Thus, they are astray and lead others astray.” [Al-Bukhari 100 and Muslim 2673]

‘Abdullah ibn Mas’ud (radyallahu ‘anhu), one of the greatest jurist among the Sahaba, made a somewhat similar prediction.

Ibn Mas’ud (radyallahu ‘anhu) said to the Tabi’un among his students, “You are in a time in which its scholars (Ulama) are many and its speakers are few. But after you will come a time in which its scholars are few and its speakers many.” [At-Tabarani, al-Kabeer 8066]

We end this brief article with the example of Imam Maalik (rahimahullah) showing clearly the state of a true Mufti at the time when he is being asked a question.

Imam Maalik (rahimahullah) said, “Whoever is asked about a religious matter, before responding he should imagine both Heaven and Hell before him and consider his outcome in the Hereafter. Only then should he respond.” [‘Iyad, Tarteeb al-Madaarik 1/144]

May Allah protect this Ummah from the imposters who are issuing Fatwas without proper credentials and knowledge.

“DISEASE IS DIVERTED FROM THE MUSJID”

“DISEASE IS DIVERTED FROM THE MUSJID” — SO SAID RASULULLAH

(SALLALLAHU ALAYHI WASALLAM)

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?

ANSWER

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.

SELLING TELEVISIONS

Question
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)
OUR COMMENT
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.

MISC. WOMEN’S ISSUES

VARIOUS QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS RELATED TO WOMEN FROM THE MAJLIS VOL 25 NO 10

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.
