    The company sends you out on its behalf and hence it allows you to spend on travel and personal expenses from the company. Therefore, the money which is saved after all expenses during the journey should be given back as it belongs to the company. (Badae’ussanai’, Kitabul-Muzarabh, 06:105, 107) However, if the company gives the remaining money back to you as gift, it is permissible for you to take it.
    والله اعلم
    N.B. The above-mentioned answer should be regarded concerning the case when no specific travel allowance is agreed up. But if a specific travel expenses is agreed up and stipulated by the company for the employee whether he spends it or not or spends more or less than that fixed allowance, it is permissible for the employee to take the remaining allowance for himself.

    Assalam o Alaikum

    I am working as an HR & Recruitment Manager at Karachi, Pakistan with a USA based Information Technology Company. One of my job responsibilities is to recruit Software Engineers for USA including males and females both. Can I place or apply for female software engineers on various jobs/projects in the USA & is the commission or salary generated by it Halal for me?

    Please reply in the light of Shariah.
    وعليكم السلام
    باسمه تعالى
    Dear Brother in Islaam, the question needs more clarification specially the part ‘female software engineers’ requires more elaboration. Therefore, we request you re-post the question explaining all the aspects in details.

  3. Dear Mohtaram Mufti Sahib,

    Assalam o Alaikum Warahmatullha

    Here’s revised and updated version of my question as per your concern.

    I am working as an HR & Recruitment Manager at Karachi, Pakistan with a USA based Information Technology Company. One of my job responsibilities is to recruit/hire Software Engineers for USA including males and females both. My question is that can I hire / recruit software engineer or computer engineer with female gender and apply them for jobs in USA and finally place them on projects. Can I talk to them on phone for this purpose.

    Is the salary or commission generated out of this responsibility Halaal for me in Shariah.
    وعليكم السلام
    باسمه تعالى
    Hiring female software engineers leads to committing two major sins, communicating with opposite sex without an extreme necessity and becoming a means of sins by hiring them for the project where they will intermingle with opposite sex. “Help you one another in Al-Birr and At-Taqwa; but do not help one another in sin and transgression.” (Suratul Maidah5:2) Therefore, it is not permissible for you to hire female software engineers.

    As far as the salary is concerned, recruitment of female software engineers is not the only responsibility that you have been assigned but it is included in responsibilities. Therefore, the salary generated out this HR and Recruitment Manger Job is Halaal provided the other responsibilities are in with the Islaamic Shariah and the main businesses of the company is based on Halaal sources.

  4. My wife entered Islam not long ago, and she is working hard to become a good Muslima. In fact, she’s learning many things, and also to wear the hijab, she has not ever had any problems. The problem is there for her work.
    She also wants to wear hijab at work it, but unfortunately she can not because her work is very sensitive and very particular, in a particular area of the State..in a European country that is not Muslim. In her field her employer would not accept at all, for the tasks she performs, she wears hijab. She would has many disciplinary problems, or even expulsion or dismissal. How to solve this problem so that she will not fall in haram? She is very sad and worried for this reason!
    Thank you in advance for your reply.
    Barakallahu fik, Allah ma’ak.

    Hijaab is a religious obligation which can not be overlooked or neglected because of obedience to the creature. Imaam Bukhari and Muslim رحمهما الله تعالىhave recorded that the Nabee of Allaah is reported to have said, “…no obedience for evil deeds, obedience is required only in what is good.” (Agreed upon)

    Therefore, it is allowed for her to work in such a company where she is not permitted to observe Shar’ee Hijaab. She may ask Allaah and look for such work, if really needed where she can observe Shar’ee Hijbaab as Allaah has taken the responsibility to provide every creature with sustenance. “And no moving creature is there on earth but its provision is due from Allah. And He knows its dwelling place and its deposit. All is in a Clear Book”. (Surah Hood 11:06)

  5. Dear Mufti Sahib,
    Assalam o Alaikum

    I have been suffering from Vitiligo disease since last 4 years. It has badly affected by body until now including my hair. A small portion of my hair got white from head back side which is easily noticed by viewers.

    Can I dye them black so they match the original hair.

    Jazakallaho Khaira
    وعليكم السلام
    باسمه تعالى
    Dyeing hair with pure black colour which resembles the original blackness of the hair and gives the impression of being young is forbidden for both man and woman beside the Mujahideen because of the prohibition and severe warning narrated from the beloved Nabee of Allaahﷺ.

    Imaam Muslimرحمه الله تعالى has recorded in his Saheeh Muslim on the authority of Sayyedinaa Jaabirرضى الله عنه that when Sayyedianaa Abu-Quhafahرضى الله عنه embraced Islaam at the conquest of Makkah and was taken to the Nabee of Allaahﷺ, he ﷺasked him to dye his white hair but at the same time prohibited him from using black dye. Imaam Abu Dawood and Nasaiرحمها الله تعالى have recorded that the Nabee of Allaahﷺ said, “There will be people at the end of time who will dye their hair black like the crops of pigeons; they will not even smell the fragrance of Paradise.”

    However, dyeing hair with read and yellow colour is permitted for both genders rather recommend. Imaam Ahmad رحمه الله تعالىhas recorded in Musnad Ahmad on the authority of Sayyedianaa Abu Umamah رضى الله تعال عنهthat the Nabee of Allaahﷺ passed by a group of white-bearded Ansaries. He said: – “Dye your beards with red or yellow dye. Expose your disparateness with the people of the book, Jews and Christians as they are not inclined to apply hair dye.”

    Therefore, dyeing hair with any other colour beside pure black is permissible. Using back dye is forbidden for both sexes.

  6. Assamulaikum,
    Subject: Permissibility of using taweez[amulets] made from Quran.
    I read ‘Remedies from the holy Quran’ writted by Moulana Ashraf Ali Thanwi, I many places he permits the use of a taweez, the concept of which is declared as Unlawfull by most of the scholores. Can you please proved the hadith that confirms the permissibility of using taweez for treatment.

    JazakAllah
    Ruhul
    Wa alaykumus Salaam wa rahmatullaah
    If you have a goos look in the introduction of the book under discussion you will se that Mujaddidul millaah moulana thanwi rahimahullah has clearly mentioned proofs of the using of taweezat that consists of Qur’aani aataar.If the taweez contains any non qur aani subject matter or non ahadeeth matter than even moulana thawi nawarallaahu marqadahu has forbidden it. The original issue is to make ruqya which is fully saabit from ahaadeeth. Many people, infact most of the masses . cannot read qur’aan properly nowadays.Even eloquent arabic speaking people who never studied qur aan cannot read it properly.(this i talk from experience) For their ease qur aanic aayat are written and given as taweez to wear. Proof for this is found in the lives of the sahaabah radhiyallahu anhum who did so for their young children who were unable to read (abdullah bin amr bin alaas radhiyaalhu anhumma naraates that he was given a so called taweez containing quranic ayaat to wear).Many so called ulema that claims to be the majority have even made ruqya haraam whilst it is clearly proven from the sihaah sitta and from the life of our beloved messenger of ALLAH salallaahu alayhi wasallam.Most of this is mentioned in amaliyyaat quraani
    Wallahu a’lam

  7. Assamulaikum,

    JazakAllah for your reply. But I still have a few questions of this subject. When we give proofs on the usage of taweez to such people who declare them as Haram, they say that the victim starts build trust and faith of the taweez and that leads to shirk and further more, they put up the following questions to us:
    1.If we wear taweez around our neck, or put in wallet, we will bring Quranic verses into toilets, right ? Is that ok to bring Quranic verses into toilets ? It this not disrespecting the Quranic verses?
    2.Is it ok to wear quranic taweez when one is unclean [state of Janabha or Menses] ? It this not disrespecting the Quranic verses?
    3.If we put taweez under the pillow, what happens if we sleep on the taweez or we step on the taweez. Is it ok if we step on Quranic pages?
    4.If we have a bookstore selling Quran, does all the Quran will protect us ? people have several copies of Quran at home but still there affected by Jinn and Shir? Then how will you justify this.
    5.If the victims start building trust and faith in these taweez, or fall into to hands of false alims who use shirk, who is responsible for their misguidance ? the scholars who recommend them or the victim you is totally unaware?
    6.Why did Peophet[SA] never had a taweez for himself? And why did he not recommend this to Ahela Baith? And why do even muslime who know Quran have taweez around their necks?

    How do we answer such questions? And also does repentance become obligatory from a person who calls Maulana Ashraf Ali Thanvi[RA] a magician nauzbillah because he wrote a book ‘Remedies from Holy Quran’ that uses taweez.

    JazakAllah
    Ruhul.
    Wa alaykumus Salaam
    1. If a qur’aan is wrapped in a cloth will it be permissible to touch it over the cloth , even for a woman in her menses? The answer for this suffices for your question. As for the toilet issue every aamil will request that it be remoced before entering the toilet.
    2. The women in menses is not reading the qur’aanic verses, so? Nor is she tpuching it directly!! To touch the qur’aan covered in a sheet is permissible. Nowadays the same group who clims that taweez is shirk and bring forward these questions will say it is good and encouraged to put qur’aans in hotle rooms so that the kuffar casn read it , whether in menses or not.
    3. Putting of taweez under the pillow, from what i know will not contain qur’aanic verses.Even when putting i under they will tell you to remove it in the morning and keep it safely.
    4. The word qur’aan means to recite. the mushaf is for reciting not an ornament nor a decoration, like many homes have. In the taweez are specific aayaat like ayatul kursi etc which are known as aayaat of hirs and protection.Normally those who cannot read properly are given these verses in written form to help and protect them . Qur’aan is kalaamullaah how can it be a form of shirk when it (the meaning of the words) is a sifat of ALLAH?
    5.To place trust in the verses of the qur’aan shirk?? Astaghfirullaah!!!
    Yes to go to a person involed in shirki aamaliyaat is a major sin. People go mostly on their own or are directed by others. Both are sinful.
    6. The Nabi of ALLAH encouraged reading the aayaat for protection. HE would read and blow on the people , which you will find in the narrations of hadeeth.The qur’aan was revealed as a cure to our ailments both spiritual as well as physical. In the the qur’aan in surah Israa verse no 8 it is mentioned :-
    { وَنُنَزِّلُ مِنَ ٱلْقُرْآنِ مَا هُوَ شِفَآءٌ وَرَحْمَةٌ لِّلْمُؤْمِنِينَ وَلاَ يَزِيدُ ٱلظَّالِمِينَ إَلاَّ خَسَاراً }

    And We reveal of (min [here] is explicative) the Qur’ān that which is a cure, , and a mercy for believers, thereby; though it only increases the evildoers, the disbelievers, in loss, because of their disbelief in it.
    As i mentioned that if you go into the history of the ahlulbait you will find that on the small children the used taaweez.
    as for the issue of huffaz using taweez it is because many aamils have made this their income and fear to give the auraad of people thereby giving them the taweez containing those verses. Also many out of laziness rather prefer wearing the taweez instaed of reading the veses themselves. Therefore many only find temporary relief and after a while the problem recurrs.
    One very important issue which i also feel disrespect is that the person wearing a taweez nd is involved in kabaair while wearing the taweez. I have seen a person driving around in his fancy car and the music is at deafening level. How will it be a means of protection when we show disrespect to the commands of ALLAH. tO ATTRACT allah’s attention and mercy we need to please allah and follow his commands. The level of permissibility is abused by some and therefore these doubts come about.Many a time he condition of permissibility are broken by the users and such causes many douvts on the actual permissibility.

  8. Assalamulaikum Mufti Sahab,
    JazakAllah for your reply, I also have few more questions:
    1. Does repentance become obligatory from a person who calls Maulana Ashraf Ali Thanvi[RA] a magician nauzbillah because he wrote a book ‘Remedies from Holy Quran’ that uses taweez.
    2. Can we recite Quran and convey its virtues to our deseased[dead muslims]? if so could you please provide some refrences from QUran and Hadith so that I could convey this to my friends who reject this concept.
    3. Some question regarding Qasar[namaz during travelling]:
    a. Should only 2 rakats be offered during magrib.
    b. Can sunnath be offered when Qasar becomes applicable.
    c. When we are praying behind an Imam, who is praying 4 rakhats and we join the salat after 2 rakhats, should that be sufficient for a person on whom Qasar is applicable.
    d. A person in Qasar who gets the first two rakhats should break his prayer after salaam in Jamath even thought the imam continues with teh next rakhat, right ?
    4. I have heard that the place where the body of our Prophet[SA] rests subhanallah is more pure and holier than Mecca, Medina, Arsh and Kursi this is the Ijmah of all scholors have confirmed this. Can we support our claims through Quran and hadith.
    5. Can we mentione the name of our Prophet[SA] during dua as a wasila. Is there any ahadith to support this concept apart from the one which mentions that hazrath Adam[AS] did it, people disregard this hadith saying that its weak/za-eef .

    Thanks in advance. May ALlah subhanahu wa tala reward you and your entire team in both the worlds.Ameen. JazakAllah Khair.

    1. CALLING A PERSON A FAASIQ FAAJIR OR A MAGICIAN IS A SIN AND WE NEED TO ASK LLAH FOR FORGIVENESS.CALLING A PERSON MAGICIAN IS LIKENED TO MAKING TKFEER ON HIM.
    2. RECITAL OF QUR’AAN AS MEANS OF ISAALE THAWAAB IS ACCPETEDAND PERMISSIBLE. tHERE IS SUFFICIENT PROOF THAT RASULULLAAH SALALLAAHU ALHI WA SALLAM GRANTED PERMISSIONFOR SOMEONE TO MAKE HAJ ON BEHAALF OF THE DECEASED, ETC WHICH RE DEEDS.gIVING OF SDAAH TO LIGHTEN THE BURDEN IN THE GRAVES IS ALSO MENTIONED.RASULULLAAH SAAWS HIMSELF RECITED AT THE GRAVESIDE WHEN BURYING SURAH BAQARA’S FIRST FIVE AAYAATAND THE LAST TWO .(AFTER FILLING THE QABR WITH SAND.)SIMLARILY THERE ARE MANY AHADEETH CONCERNING THE ISSUE WHICH NEEDS A LENGTHY DISCOURSE TO REMOVE DOUBTS.

    وقد ذكر جماعة منهم الشيخ أبو نصر بن الصباغ في كتابه ” الشامل ” الحكاية المشهورة عن العتبي، قال: كنت جالساً عند قبر النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم فجاء أعرابي فقال: السلام عليك يا رسول الله، سمعت الله يقول: { وَلَوْ أَنَّهُمْ إِذ ظَّلَمُوۤاْ أَنفُسَهُمْ جَآءُوكَ فَٱسْتَغْفَرُواْ ٱللَّهَ وَٱسْتَغْفَرَ لَهُمُ ٱلرَّسُولُ لَوَجَدُواْ ٱللَّهَ تَوَّاباً رَّحِيماً } وقد جئتك مستغفراً لذنبي، مستشفعاً بك إلى ربي. ثم أنشأ يقول:يا خَيْرَ مَنْ دُفِنَتْ بِالقاعِ أَعْظُمُهُ فَطابَ مِنْ طِيْبِهِنَّ القاعُ والأَكَمُ
    نَفْسِي الفِداءُ لِقَبْرٍ أَنْتَ ساكِنُهُ فيهِ العَفافُ وفيهِ الجُودُ والكَرَمُ
    ثم انصرف الأعرابي، فغلبتني عيني، فرأيت النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم في النوم، فقال: يا عتبي الحق الأعرابي، فبشره أن الله قد غفر له».

  9. Assalamulaikum Mufti Sahab,

    One powerful wird/wazifa was given to me, it is said that this wird MashaAllah could be used as a means for protection and cure against Blackmagic and evil Jinn and is suppose to be very effective to banish and neutralize all evils and blackmagic. As per my limited understanding any incantation that doesn’t contain any shirk is permissible in Islam, so I wanted to validate this wazifa before forwarding it to others. The wazifa is as below:
    BE HAQ E YA JIBRAEEL YA MIEKA’EEL YA ISRAFEEL YA IZRAEEL WA BA HAQ E RAHMATIKA YA ARHAMARA HEMEEN
    بِحَقِ یَا جِبۡرَایلَ یَا میکَا یلَ
    یَا اِسرَا فیلَ یَا عِزۡرَا یلَ وَ بِحَقِ رَحۡمَتِکَ یَا اَرۡحَمَ
    الرٰ حِمِیۡنَ
    Please let me know its meaning and whether it would lead to shirk if it’s recited. And also whether it could be recited by removing the word YA and adding WA as below to avoid shirk.
    BE HAQ E JIBRAEEL WA MIEKA’EEL WA ISRAFEEL WA IZRAEEL WA BA HAQ E RAHMATIKA YA ARHAMARA HEMEEN

    Thanks in Advance. JazakAllah Khair.

    Wa alaykumus Salaam warahmtullaah
    i think it would be better if you read it bihaqqin ya jibraail would be permissible.
    In its original form too the wird does not show any form of shirk. It only seeks help from the four angels through the mercy of ALLAH. hAQ REFERS TO ALLAH.

    mufti sahab , i ant to know that online advertisment & data entry jobs of ebay , google , rediff etc are haram ro halal
    Wa alaykumus Salaam
    for anything to be regarded Halaal or haraam the criterion is whether shariah regulations are broken or not.Eg interest orientated business,selling of haraam commodaties, etc.
    Each job will be jugded seperately on bases of its products.

  11. Assalaamualaikum Mufti Sahab,
    JazakALlah khira for your previous reply. I have a few more questions:
    1. I still have some clarification on Qasar…for magrib should the person pray 3 or only 2 rakhats?
    2.During salaat due to some reason if we recite surah fataha incorrectly and we realize this after the next surah, can we recite surah fataha again..is it ok if we recite surah fataha after the zam surah due to some reasons.
    3.During our fardh salat can we repeat any surah twice or thrice.
    4.During the sajdha of fardh salaat after the tasbi, can we do some dua?
    5.What is the complete meaning of BE HAQ E YA JIBRAEEL YA MIEKA’EEL YA ISRAFEEL YA IZRAEEL WA BA HAQ E RAHMATIKA YA ARHAMARA HEMEEN. to be more specific what is the meaning of BE HAQ E and BA HA
    Wa alaykumus Salaam
    1.Three raka aats will be read for qasr as there is no half rakaat.
    2.If the error is of a minor then the salaah will be in tact. The repeating of the sura is not necessary .
    3.If one is munfarid then it will be allowed. (i.e. reading salaah alone). Repitition is permissible as long as it does not cause inconvenience to the mqtadis(those following the imaam)
    4. Same answer as no 3
    5.the meaning is as follows :- by the Right (of ALLAH) oh jibraeel , oh mikaaeel,oh izraeel, oh israfeel and by the right of your mercy ,OH ALL MERCIFUL of those who show mercy’
    there is no difference between ba and bee as baa is a mispronunciation of bee in arabic. In urdu there is a difference.

  12. Assalaamualaikum Mufti Sahab,

    Is it permissible for muslims to subjugate Jinn and use them for beneficial purposes like to find our if the person is affected by blackmagic or for healing purposes or to know the location of the missing person.
    If your answer is yes, then please provide references from Hadith to prove this, so that I can forward this to my friends and also have any sahaba[RA] used jinn for any beneficial purposes.

    JazakALlah Khair in advance.
    Wa alaykumus Salaam
    sorry for the delay in answer. Muftu shihab is on vacation and i have to answer alone.
    Anyway to subjugate jinn is something not permissible as they are the creation of ALLAH.For any person to take another as captive whilst he is a free being is haraam in shariah. Those who do so will be responsible in the aakhirah.
    However if a person befriends a jinn and he helps him in such matters ut will be permissible. We should remember that sayyidina sulaiman alayhis Salaam took work from the jinn as mentioned in the qur’aan. Also there are many ahaadeeth that mention them coming and discussing with rasulullaah salalaahu alayhi wa sallam
    In surah saba verse 12 and 13 ALLAH mentions how the jinn had made for sulaiman various things and sulaiman a.s. was ask to be grateful for it.
    ( ومن الجن من يعمل بين يديه بإذن ربه ومن يزغ منهم عن أمرنا نذقه من عذاب السَّعير – يعملون له ما يشاء من مَّحاريب وتماثيل وجفانٍ كالجواب وقدورٍ رَّاسِيَاتٍ) [ سبأ : 12-13 ] .
    and (We gave him) certain of the jinn who worked before him by permission of his Lord. And such of them as deviated from Our command, them We caused to taste the punishment of flaming Fire.

    [34:13]
    They made for him what he willed: synagogues and statues, basins like wells and boilers built into the ground. Give thanks, O House of David! Few of My bondmen are thankful.

    Further more there are many ahadeeth about muslim jinn and there entrance into the house and what to do. In fact Imaam Maalik and imaam Ahmad were of the opnion that marraige between jinn and ins was also permissible.(however imaam maalik mentioned that he discourages it otherwise pregnant women from zina will claim that their husbands are jinn).
    Ibn Taymiyyah mentioned in his majmoo3ul fattaawaa (19/39) that marraige between jinn and human is something knwn , even them having offspring.
    When such relationships are permiossible then friendship and seeking help from them is permissible too, as long as it is in the confines of shariah.

  13. asslam o alaikum, plz let me know that eating choclates -dairy milk ,kit-kat, company product and other choclates halal or haram to eat?
    Wa alaykumus Salaam
    We should check the ingredients if they are halaal or haraam
    Many a times gelatine is used in chocloates and sweets. As far as the two names mentioned they are halaal.But make a habit of checking the ingredients.

  14. I want to cook a daig from a professional Cook and have it eaten by poor people as I made a mannat that if all my worries gone I will cook a daig. Now since I have not mentioned in my Mannat that how much people will i feed. Normally a daig is of 50 persons.
    can I feed around 30 people from this daig and remaining I separate for myself and my relatives? Or do i have to dedicate the whole daig to poor people and should make a separate arrangements for relatives? Please reply.
    ASSALAAMU ALAYKUM
    As you stipulated that you will cook a daig to feed the poor, it will be necessary to feed whatever is cooked in a daig.If you wish to split it then it has to be cooked in two seperate pots.The one to fulfill the mannat and the other tof eed your family.

  15. ASSALAAMU ALAYKUM,

    I made up the the arabic version of the following Darood “O Allah! Bestow complete blessings and perfect peace on Sayyidina Muhammad and his Family according to the number of things in Your Knowledge”.

    Please validate and let me know which arabic version is correct:

    (1)ALLAHUMMA SALLI SALAATAN KAAMILATAN WA SALLIM SALAAMAN TAAMMAN ‘ALAA SAYYIDINA MUHAMMADIW WA ALA AALI SAYYIDINA WA MAULANA MUHAMMADIN ‘ADADA KULLA MA’LOOMIN-LAK

    or

    (2)ALLAHUMMA SALLI SALAATAN KAAMILATAN WA SALLIM SALAAMAN TAAMMAN ‘ALAA SAYYIDINA MUHAMMADIW WA ALA AALI SAYYIDINA WA MAULANA MUHAMMADIN ‘ADADA MAA FEE IL-MIL LAAH

    Reciting ‘ADADA KULLA MA’LOOMIN-LAK or ‘ADADA MAA FEE IL-MIL LAAH is more correct.

    JazakAllah.
    Wa alaykumus Salaam
    Both versions are incorrect. The proper will be adada maaloomaaatik.

  16. ASSALAAMU ALAYKUM,

    Is it permissible to recite Durood Tunjeena, does it contains words of SHIRK, the meaning is a mentioned below:

    “O Allah! Shower blessings on Muhammad, our Master, and his Family such blessings by means of which Thou may relieve us of all anxieties and calamities. Thou may satisfy all our needs. Thou may clean us of all evils and thanks for which Thou may grant us high position and high rank and status in Thy presence, and Thou may lead us to the utmost limit of our aspirations and capacity in whatever is best in this world as well as in the world Hereafter, as Thou has the full Power over everything”.

    The complete Durood can be found at the below site:

    http://www.yanabi.com/forum/Topic235515-4-1.aspx#bm235538

    JazakAllah
    wa alaykumus Salaam
    The durood tunjeena is a durood encouraged by oyr mashaaikh and is totally free of shirk and kufr. It has tawasul bil amal which is permissible and proven from the incident of the three people caught in the cave and they used the wasila of their good aamaal to get themselves out of the cave.

  17. ASSALAAMU ALAYKUM,

    Is it permissible to recite ‘ASTAGHFIRULLAAHI RABBI WA ‘ATOOBU ‘ILAYHI ‘ADADA MAA FEE IL-MIL LAAH

    I think the meaning of which is “I seek forgiveness from Allah my Rabb and I turn to Him in Repentance equal to the count of things in HIS/Allah’s Knowledge”

    JazakAllah
    Wa alaykumusSalaam
    Istighfaar is linked to sins committed in the past.Therefore asking for forgiveness is based on ones past deeds. Therefore it would be better to read
    astaghfirullaah rabbi wa atoobu ilayhi min kulli zhambiw wa khati’ah.
    Looking at the Du’aa you suggested actually does not make sense as everything is within the knowledge of ALLAH and nothing is unknown to him.Outwardly it seems the du’aa claims that there is a possibility that some issues are not known to ALLAH and therefore this du’aa will not be permissible.

  18. ASSALAAMU ALAYKUM,

    Mufti Sahab I wanted to know which verse is mentioned in the below hadith that is equivalent to a thousand verses. My guess was that this verse should be the same and should appear in all the surah mentioned below. However, I didn’t find any common verse that occurs in all the below surah’s, so I think may be its a verse that contains a common name of Allah accross these surah.

    Please advice.

    JazakAllah.

    Irbaadh bin Saariyah (R.A.) narrates that the Prophet (S.A.W.) used to recite the Musabbihaat, i.e. Surah Hadeed, Surah Hashar, Surah Saff, Surah Jumu’ah and Surah Taghaabun before sleeping and he stated that: “Indeed amongst them is a verse that is more virtuous than a thousand verses. (Abu Dawood, Tirmidhi)
    Rausullaah Saaws ordered us to read the whole surah and personally did not mention the specific aayah. We therefore do not concern ourselves about the aayah but rather do what sayyidul kounain salalaahu alayhi wa sallam had ordered us.

  19. ASSALAAMU ALAYKUM,

    Mufti sahab, please let me know in the state of Fasting, can one kiss, hug and fondle ones spouse.

    Thanks !
    Wa alaykumus salaam.
    To hug ones wife without shahwah is permissible. However kissing, and fonding ismakhruh even when one feels safe that he will not be aroused.
    Rathe abstain form these acts while fasting because they are permissible after breaking fast.

  20. ASSALAAMU ALAYKUM,

    Is is premissible for a wife/husband to call his/her spouse words like ‘my baby’, ‘your are my baby’, ‘baby come here’ etc out of love.

    Please answere this at thie earliest.

    JazakAllah.
    Wa Alaykumus Salaam
    Yes it is permissible.to call her those words.l

  21. Assalaamualaikum,

    Mufti Sahab, due to time limitations and limitations of free space, in my articles, after writing Prophet[SA]’s name, I write SA instead of Sallallahu Alaihi Wa salam, is this permissible or is it a sin on my part to write SA or SAW in my articles. Can you also provide appropriate references to support the same .
    JazakALlah.
    Wa alaykumus Salaam
    On the first occasion of mentioning Rasulullaah’s name (salallahu alayhi wa sallam) then mention it fully. Thereafter you may write saw or whatever you wish.

  22. Assalaamualaikum,

    Mufit sahab, please let me know if the arabic version of this wazifa using wasila of the names of Allah is correct :
    BISMILLAAHI BE HAQ-QE-ASMA’IHI WA BE HAQ_QE KALIMAATI HI “In the name of Allah-By the Right of His names and by the Right of His Kalimaat[Words of power/praise]”
    Please validate the arabic version and let me know if the above words could be recite before any dua.

    JazakAllah And WasSalaam.
    Wa AlaykumusSalaam
    it will ne permissible to use those words in your du’aa. When waseelaa of out aamaal is permissible unanimously thenwhy not asking through the barakah of his Attributes and his Quraan. We find in the hadeeth that the person who completes a khatm of the qur’aan that we are told to read:-
    ALLAHUMMAR HAMNI BIL QUR’AAN
    which means “OH ALLAH bless me through the means of the qur’aan.
    Also it will be more appropriate to change the words of bihaqe with bibarakati.
    Wallaahu a’lam

  23. Assalaamualaikum,

    Mufti Sahab the question is about reciting “Naad-e-Ali”. Some time back I had a conversation with a Barelvi alim, he suggested that the best wizafa for all your needs is to recite ‘Naad-e-ALi’ abundantly and this has been tried and tested by several people before. I told that this wizafa contains words of shirk and such words of praises were never used by any of the pious-predecessors, he told me that this is not shirk as we only belief that its only Allah that fulfill our needs and that Prophet[SA] used these words to call Hazrat Ali during battle of Kybar. In my limitied knowledge “Naad-e-ali” is made permissible by the Shia’s and the Barelvi’s and not the Ahele-sunnah-wal-Jamath. Please let me know if there is a hadith in which Prophet[SA] recited ‘naad-e-ali’ and whether it can be recited with intentions that its only Allah who provides the help and also how do people receive benefits by reciting this if it contains words of shirk.
    WA ALAYKUMUS sALAAM
    SORRY FOR DELAY IN ANSWERING.
    Naadae ai is known to have words of shirk in it and if Rasulullaah salallaahu alayhi wasallam used it why is it that none of the famous great scholars of islam ever mentioned it.
    If you are referring to this false lies of the filthy shia

    At the battle at the Fort of Khyber, Hazrat Ali had stayed behind, and when the Muslims were losing hopelessly, Prophet Muhammad called for the help of Hazrat Ali in his prayer to Allah. Ya Ali Bilutfika Adrikani! O Ali, come to my help by Thy Favor! Hazrat Ali came riding and to the rescue of his team; he held the door of the fort across the moat, miraculously, with one arm, until all the Muslims had crossed over. This resulted in victory for the Muslims.
    then i i ask you to read any seerah book and see what the aahadeeth say about the battle of khyber. Another thin that is disturbing is that Rasulullaah saaws would seek help from ghairullaah and was disressed??

    Jazakallah and Wassalaam.

  24. Assalaamualaikum,

    i reside in USA and i deal in perfumes,1st of all i wud like to know is it permissible in islam to use perfumes that have some quantity of alcohol in it and secondly can the fragrances be used during ramadan.
    I have one other concern that is i see some counter fitted items that are available as well,can they be sold to a customer if you show them the same product as in the box but ypu dont tell them any further details,though the prices are low i dont wanna assume that customer knows what they getting,what does islam says regarding this issue
    Kindly guide me in this regard even if its been discussed earlier,
    thx
    Wa alykumus Salaam
    Alcohol based perfumes are permissile to use as they evaporate and leave no stain. However it would be preferrable to use non-alccoholic perfumes which is the sunnah and practise of Rasululaah salllaahu alayhi wa sallam.
    2. As for selling something that is concieled in a container and the customer asks for it then itwill be permissible to sell it to him like that. However to put him at ease it will be advisable to open and show it to him.

  26. mufti saheb i wanted to ask if cutting hair in different styles is permissible if the husband likes it or is it stiil wrong?
    ASSALAAMU ALAYKUM
    Cutting of hair in the method of the non muslim is in itself tashabbuh bil kuffar.Cutting of the hair in the manner that resembles males is totally forbidden as rasulullaah salall;aahu alayhi wa sallam has cursed those who resemble males or imitatte them.

  27. Assalamualaikum,

    Mufti Sahab, usually while performing salat in Jamath at my office, the Barelvi people come forward and lead the prayers. The problem with them is that they do not fold their pants and pray with their trousers falling below their anklets. When I talk to them on this topic they say they are correct, but mashallah, I have read the maslah that praying with trousers below the ankle will not only invalidate the salat but one should also perform wadhu again. My question is whether I should pray salat independently at office or in Jamath when (1) A berelvi is leading the prayer and he is intentionally lowering his pant/trouser below his ankle and he does not fold it (2) if any person is leading the prayer and his pant is below his ankle or is not folded correctly above his ankle.

    Please advise, as I’ am confused about the right approach I should take !!

    JazakAllah and Wassalaam,
    Ruhul
    Wa alaykumus Salaam
    Firstly i wish to clarify that keeping your trouser below your ankles does not invalidate wudhu. Your wudhu will be intact but you are under direct curse of ALLAH and HIS RAsool saaws.
    I personally will advise you to perform your salaah with jamat and also try and lead the prayers yourself or encourage others with saheehul aqeedah to do so. The problem lays with them who refuse to read behind us and feel that their salaah will be invalid. Remember the imaam is responsible and bears all responsibilities.(tirmidhi). Also take heed that salaah is permissible behind aan open sinner if elected as imaam.

  28. Assalamulaikum,

    Mufti Sahab I wanted to know the validity of the below ahadith, could you let me know whether they are acceptable and have any scholors of Deoband commented on them ?

    Hadith 1: Imam At-Tabraani quotes a Hadith Shareef in which the Holy Prophet (Sallallaahu Alaiyhi Wa Sallam) declares, “There will always exist 40 persons on the Earth, each of whom is blessed like Hazrat Ebrahim (Alayhis Salaam). It rains because of their Barakah. Allah appoints another when one of them dies.”

    Hadith 2: Abu Na’eem reports that the Holy Prophet (Sallallaahu Alaiyhi Wa Sallam) said, “There always exist 40 persons among my Ummah. Their hearts are like that of Hazrat Ebrahim (Alayhis Salaam). Allah Ta’ala redeems His human servants from disasters for their sake. They are called Abdaal. They do not attain to that degree by performing Salaah, fasting, or giving Zakaat.”

    JazakALlah and WasSalaam
    The ahaadeeth about the abdaals are wellknown and also mentioned in the saheeh books of hadeeth.The issue of the abaadila are mentioned in ahaadeeth and mullaah ali alqaari in mirqaat the sharh of mishkaat has given details about them.Hafiz ibn hajar asqalaani in fathulbaari has also mentioned them.Many of our ulema e deoband have written about them especially moulana thanvi rahimahullaah and the likes.Some of the ahaadeeth do have wekness but there are many ahaadeeth that are saheeh and therefore the belief about them is regarded as haq by the ahlus sunnah wajamah

  29. Assalaamualaikum,

    Mufti Sahab since we don’t have a good provision for Wadhu at office, what we normally do is, we make Wadhu in the wash basin and latter we wash our feet in the toilets. Some, people say’s that wadhu in toilets is against sunnah and is not recommended, its therefore preferable to wipe over the feet at the wash basin rather than washing the feet in toilets. Mufti Sahab, please confirm the below:
    (1)Will the wadhu be valid if feets are washed in the toilet, in such a way that our feet remain clean after washing ?
    (2)Will wadhu be valid if any one wipes over the feet with water, rather than washing them ?
    (3)Is wadhu or Ghusul in bathroom that have toilets permissible or is it against sunnah? and will it effect the rewards of the wadhu or ghusal in anyway, as nowdays, in every home the washrooms have toilets.

    Please give a detailed explaination so that I can share this with my collegues !!

    Thanks in Advance !!

    JazakAllah and Wassalaam
    Wa alaykumus salaam
    Washing of the feet is fardh in wudhu in accordance to all mazhaahib. When using khuffs(leather or it equivalent) then to make masah wil lbe permissible.To wipe over nylon socks,etc is wrong and not permissible.
    Strangely i would like to know what prevents us from washing our feet in the basin by raising it up??
    To wash it in the toilet will be permissible but not preferrable.However no masnoon duaas can be read whilst washing in the toilet.

  30. Assalamualaikum Mufti Sahab,

    JazakAllah khair to you and your entire team of Jaamia Hamidia!!

    The problem with washing feet in the basin is :
    1. Our non-believing, colleagues sarcastically look at people when they are doing this, we have managers, clients and top officials at office.
    2. This is also creating problems to the maintenance people and other colleagues at the office, as people spill water on the floor and make the floor slippery.

    WasSalaam
    Wa alaykumus Salaam
    Actually i think we should clean up our mess after we make it.
    also this is a form of da’wah to them.

  31. Assalamualaikum,

    One of my friend forwarded an article “Virtues and Laws Pertaining to Bismillah” written by Mufti Muhammad Shafi’ ‘Uthmani
    The salafies as usual criticized the following points:
    ==========================
    For intelligence and memory:
    Recite it 786 times, blow in water and drink this water at the time of sunrise. Intelligence will be increased and the memory will be improved.
    For increase in affection:
    Recite it 786 times, blow in water and give that person to drink whose affection is required. That persons love and affection for one will be increased. It is forbidden to use this for illicit love.
    ==========================
    They say that using or writing of 786 is Bidah and its usage should be discouraged. I know that this is an ancient practice of some of the uelema mainly for the purpose of avoiding disrespect to the holy words, but then how can we answer the concept of 786 in the light of Quran and Hadith..

    And also some other salafies say that 786 is equal to hari-rama-hari-krishna…

    Please advice !!

    JazakALlah !!

    Take care and WasSalaam.
    WA ALAYKUMUS SALAM
    Actually the numerical system of the arabic alphabets are known as the abjad hooz. It is a system that was practiced in the time of Rasulullaah salalaahu alayhi wa sallam.
    Another thing is a mumin and muslim’s wont go to hari krisna etc unless he is involved in shirk nd kufr. It seems their minds are warped and filled with such thoughts.another thing is the word hari means what?Is this statement of theirs not filled withshirk. and i tell you to find out from someone who knows the abjad hooz and you will see their lies.
    Another thing where in the quote you gave is it mentioned to write 786 in place of bismillaah?

  32. Asalamualaikum!

    Mufti sir i wanted to know is the kafeel system followed in middle east is haraam or halaal. My wife is invloved in it and she is getting paid only because her name is used by few individuals for doing business. She has no property or maoney involved in the business.
    Wa alaykumus Salam
    If you are referring to the issue of someone being a nominee whereby you utilise his/her name to attain a property or a business, then there are conditions. Is she being given a percentage in the profits or is she paid a wage? I need to know this before answering.

  33. Assalam Alaikum:

    My question is that if someone thinks about comitting adultery in their mind, ( and they know they will never commit it), and get pleasure by thinking that thought then is it a Gunah??

    Because I read once that thinking about a haram act is not a gunah but only performing a haram act is a gunah.

    So if someone thinks about doing haram while getting pleasure from it then is it a Gunah or not.
    Wa Alaykumus Salaam
    If one thinks of sin and stops his thoughts then he will be rewarded for his effort of refraining from sin. On the other hand if one knows he will not be able to carry out the sin so he starts fantasizing about doing the sin then he will be sinning because of his intention and lust behind the sin.

    I belong to Pakistan. and on the occasion of Eid here New Currencey Notes are sold out in the market for the profit of Rs. 250. Like if we have to purchase new notes of Rs. 100 in 100 quantity then they sell it for Rs. 10,500/- so they are actually charge Rs. 500 extra for this.

    Is this Halaal for me to give Rs. 500/- to get new Currency Notes as I heard that Moulana Yousuf Ludhanvi has said that Notes should be replaced wiht notes there should be no less or more.

    However from Banks we can get it with no extra charges but its very hectic in a sense that you have to wait for long hours which I want to avoid.

    Please furnish answer if such profit is Halaal for the seller and it is OK for me to buy them?
    Wa alaykumus Salaam
    Giving and taking of interest is forbidden in islam and totally haaraam. This is not only the saying of my late ustaadh , Shaheed mufti yusuf ludhyaanwi rahimahullah but the statement of our Rasulullaah salalaahu alayhi wa sallam who mentioned thatany deal in gold or silver(of which modern money is a replacement) has to be equal and spontaneous. Therefore to give the amount will be haraam.

  36. Assalamualaikum Mufti Sahab,

    This question is about Sadaqat-ul-Fitr as per hanafi ruling..

    I forwarded an article of Mufti Taqi Usmani[db] with regards to hanafi ruling that Sadaqt-ul-fitr is about 1.75 KG of wheat or equivalent.

    One of my salafi friend as usual argued with me that- It is clearly mention in the hadith of Bhukari as one sa–as per measurement it comes across 2.5 or 3 kg, How does hanafi fiqh derives the ruling of 1.75 kg of wheat?

    [Sahih Bukhari : **Volume 2, **Book 25 **Zakat ul Fitr, Number 579] Narrated Ibn Umar (Radi Allah Anhu) Allah’s Apostle (sal-allahu-alleihi-wasallam) enjoined the payment of one Sa’ of dates or one Sa’ of barley as Zakat-ul-Fitr on every Muslim slave or free, male or female, young or old, and he ordered that it be paid before the people went out to offer the ‘Id prayer.

    Mufti sahib could you please provide some evidences from Hadith to support the hanafi ruling..

    JazakAllah and Wassalaam
    Ruhul
    Wa Alaykumus Salaam
    Firstly and formostly most of the ahaadeeth mention barlet dates etc and wheat is not added to the one saa’ mentioned. The hadeeth that mentions@qomh@ or @hinta@ mentions nisf which menas half a sa’. These ahaadeeth are to be found in tirmidhi , abu dawood, nasaai,etc.It is mentioned in abu dawood and nasaai that sayyidina ibn Abbas radhiyallahu anhumma on the last day of ramadhaan mentioned to the people that they should take out the sadaqah of their fast which Rasulullaah salalaahu alayhi wasallam had made compulsory on us , that is a sa’ from dates and barley and half a sa’ from wheat on behalf of every free or slave male and female, big or small.It is also narrated that Sayyidina muaawiyah radhiyallahu anhu mentioned that wheat is half sa’ because it is double the price of barley.Therefore the verdict of the ahnaf is that only half a sa’ of wheat is to be given.

  37. Mufti Sahib,

    Assalam o Alaikum
    Could you please tell me if credit insurance is permitted?
    This is a bank charging you per transaction you make in terms of invoicing your customers but insuring the risk. So if the bank takes responsibility of say £x thousand and the customer doesnt pay you, the bank will pay you.
    I am working with someone in business that is going to bring many new customers to my printing company but as these are customers I am not aware of I cannot afford to take the risk of credit to them.

    JazakAllah

    This is forbidden in shariah because it is bast on gambling principles.The real name of business is risk and to be more safe, take a deposit before doing the work and demand payment before delivery.

  38. Assalamualaikum Mufti Sahab,

    Normally, for any sickness related to Jinn, Sihir or evil eye, people are advised to recite verses contained in Manzil and blow it our water.
    The Raqi’s or amils ask the victims to drink as well as add the recited water to bathing water and take a bath with it.Generally, raqi’s advise the people to collect the water after bathing and through it out on the ground or on road but not in the drain to avoid the disrespect of the recited or the holy water.The above solution of bathing with recited water is not-practical, as it becomes difficult to collect the recited water after bathing.

    My question is, can we directly bath with the recited water in bathroom/toilets and allowing it to flow in the drain? Is it really disrespect to the holy water if it flows into the drain after bathing?

    Could you please provide some references from hadith or books of fiqh if any, to support the correct ruling?

    Thanks in advance.
    Wa alaykumus Salaam
    This is a matter of respect and honouring the qur’aan which is Kalaamullaah.Preferrably we should rather wipe the body like one is applying cream with th qur’aan water which will save us from having the water mix with najaasat.Similarily our ulema teach us that we should put a cover over the qur’aan and when we wash it do not throw the water down the drainas respect to that which touches the qur’aan.
    Although it might be permissible to let the water floe down the drain but it shows lack of adab and respect.In other words this Hukm is amr istihbaabi.

    I am working as HR Manager in a US based firm and I have to place my employees on different job positions abroad and in local. Quite often I have to add some extra experience in their Bio data (CV) which they don’t have in actual. I do this so as to give good impression to my clients of my employees / consultants. Once Consultants / employees get a project / contract then they perform well.
    Is it ok to change/add some experience in Bio-Data (CV) that matches client requirements but in actual my employees / consultants do not have them. It is one of my responsibilities as HR Manager.

These books contain various qoutes besides ahaadeeth like the statements of the sahaabah radhiyallahu anhum and the senior ta bi’een as well. The book is well accepted and even the like of Hafez ibn Hajar Alasqalaani has made a Takhreej of the Narrators and called it al ee thaar . Imam nawawi, Suyuti rahimahumullaah all mention it in their books as well. Unfortunately the enemies of the ahnaaf refuse to accept it and deny it being from abu haniefah rahimahullaah.

  51. Assalamualaikum,

    Mufti Sahab please read this article “News Report that over 180 items are made from PIG remains”

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencete…hings-pig.html

    I have these questions

    1. What is the hanafi ruling regarding the usage of such items which we are unaware of their origin and potentially could be made from pig?

    2. Even though the product is from PIG remains when it is synthized completely into a different product is it lawful to use? like grape juice–> wine —>vineger

    JazakaAllah and Wassalaam
    Wa alaykumus Salaam
    It is our duty to make sure that we consume halaal. the onus lies with us and the sin is upon us.Remember the consumption of haraam nullifies all our du’aas.If one used these products in ignorance of their content then he should seek repentence.Ignorance is no excuse.
    2. If any animal falls in a salt pan and changes into salt then the salt will be correct for consumption even if the animal be a haraam animal. That is because its origin is totally dissolved. In the case that you mention it does not complete the requirements of total dissolving where its origin is not recognisable. Also remember that that taking any benefit from swine is forbidden. Here one is benefitting from it therefore not permissible.

    Do you know of any spiritual benefits of reciting Allah’s name YA MOMEETO and does the recitation of Allah names excessively cause any harm to are weak body. I have heard from one person that some of Allah’s names are really powerful and if recited more than the limit it will make us weak causing –headaches, slight fever and weakness. Is it true ?

    And please provide me the meaning of these wazifa:
    1. ALLAHU YA MOMEETO

    Is ALLAH not the most powerful and most great? definitely HIS Atrributes will also have that awe andgreatness in it.
    Actually the sifaat of ALLAH are of two types
    1. Jalaali
    2. Jamaali.
    The sifaat of jalaali depicts power and strength and has the same effect.Whereas the sifaat of jamaal depicts mercy and kindness and has the same effect.
    The sifat of Mumeet has the quality of decreasing Ghaflat and Shahwat (carnal desires and unmindfulness).
    the meaning of the wazeefaa is
    OH ALLAH OH GRANTER OF DEATH
    OH GRANTER OF DEATH MAY YOUR LORDSHIP REMAIN LOFTY
    OH DESIGNOR OF ALL STRANGE THINGS WITH GOODNESS OH DESSIGNOR OF ALL THINGS.

  57. Assalamualaikum Mufti Sahab,

    Please explain the meaning of this hadith:

    ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Umar reported that the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, “Bad luck can be found in houses, women and horses.”

    Do we belive in BAD LUCK or BAD OWMEN !!

    Thanks and Wassalaam
    Wa alaykumus Salaam
    Firstly the words of the hadeeth is “showm” which means bad effect.
    Rasulullaah salallaahu alayhi wa sallam has mentioned that there is no contagious disease , nor any bad omens in islam.” (muslim)
    The belief that anything has the power of harm or benefit besides ALLAH . Fortune and misfortune both are from ALLAH.
    The above hadeeth mentios the word sowm which can also be translated as fatality. In other words we would rather translate it as, ” if there were any misfortune then it would be found in houses. women and horses.” as they normally say ,” his wife or lover was the cause of his downfall”.
    Wallaahu lam bith thawaab.

  58. Assalamualaikum Mufti Sahab,

    Using the same science of numbers i.e ilmul aadad people have come up with the concept of ‘786’, some scholars of Deoband also believe that numerical value of ‘Bismillah’ is 786, that is to say that ilmul adad is an ancient practice and is also supported by many scholars. You can read ‘Virtues and Laws Pertaining to Bismillah’ By Mufti Muhammad Shafi’ ‘Uthmani . My question is about ‘ilm ul aadad’ i.e the science of numbers.

    1. Is this science jayaz/ permissible to study and learn?
    2. Some people who are pious muslims (they even pray Tahjjud) perform ‘istakara’ using ‘ilmul aadad’, can we seek advices from them? As we seek advices from our elders before doing any thing.
    3. And using the same ‘ilmul adad’, people tell whether the sickness is caused by jinn, magic, evil eye or medical reasons? So can we seek their advices?

    They also belief that none have the knowledge of unseen except Allah, and they claim that using this science they only approximate things that Allah has already predestined.
    Please advice !

    JazakAllah and Wassalaam
    Wa alaykumus Salaam
    1. The system of counting the value of the letters is known as the abjad hooz system.This is used to bring about a numerical value to a word or name. Normally many have given permissibility for the usage of 786 in place of the basmala because the basmala is a portion of the quraan, i.e. surah naml.
    2. As for istikhaaraa and usage of ilmul adad, i find it totally wrong as istikhaaraah is a means of seeking ALLAH’S help and it method has been taught to us by Rasulullaah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. We therefore stick to his teachings in it than use any such method which he did not do. A simple usool: when there is nass then there is no place for qiyaas.
    3.The usage of the ilmul adad to find out a persons condition is something i personnally disagree with. If a person does proper studies in the line of removal of jinn effect and one knows about it then he will have sufficient experience to be able to know from certain issues if it is jinn or not.Remember that Rasulullaah saaws have forbidden us from visiting so called fortune tellers as our salaah and ibaadah will not be accepted for forty days.
    Wallahu a’lam bith thawaab

    Please check this fatwa

    http://qa.sunnipath.com/issue_view.asp?HD=1&ID=649&CATE=115

    Yesterday, I spoke with one sheikh who knows ‘ilmul Adad’ and ‘ilmul nujum’ and he is very pious at the same time.
    I spoke to him about the hadith, the same hadith that you quoted about 40 days of worship will not be accepted. He said there is a huge difference between the ‘astrologers’ and us, they beliefs are filled with kufur and shirk, they belief that certain starts, planets, stones or amulets have powers to change the destiny, their rituals are filled with shirk on the contrary we believe that its ‘Allah who grant success and failure’ we believe that every thing that happens is from Allah…etc. This is a science that even existed and was at the peaks during the times of our Prophet[SAW] then why didn’t he prohibit this science of ‘ilmul Adad’ and ‘ilmul nujum’.

    We can see simillar kind of Istakarah done on Q-TV.
    Please let me know your thoughts.
    Wa Alaykumus Salaam
    Whoever told you this is only trying to fool you and is spreading lies against our Beloved Rasool Salalahu alayhi wa sallam.It comes clear in a narration that is found in sunan Abu dawood, iibn Majah and nyusnad Imam Ahmed wherein Abu hurairah Radhiyallaahu anhu mentions that he heard Rasulullaah Salallaahu alayhi Wasallam saying,” whosoever takes knowledge from the stars has taken knowledge of sihr.As he increases (his knowledge) such does he increase (in sihr).”
    What has to be nderstood is that predicting anything from the future is in itself not permissible because none knows what will happen in the future except for ALLAH.Where is it possible that a person uses these knoledge and give verdict of things being good or bad in the future and claim it permissible?

    Thanks in advance !

    Wassalaam

  60. Assalamualaikum Mufti Sahab,
    Hope you are doing well by the grace of Allah !!

    Please let me know the meaning of this hadith:

    Abu Dawud narrated that Anas ibn Malik said: A man said: “O Messenger of Allah, we were in a house and our numbers and wealth were great, then we moved to another house where our numbers and wealth decreased.” The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him) said, “Leave it, it is bad.”

    1. Could a house cause loss to a person or his family?
    2. Or the Jinns in the house cause loss to the person?
    3. Are we suppose to leave the house when we have such problems?

    JazakAllah and Wassalaam
    Wa alaykumus Salam
    To understand the hadeeth , one has to understand the circumstances of the hadeeth. Here a person comes complaining of changing houses and suffering loss.There was fear of the person’s aqeedah being effected by the occurrence. Therefore Rasulullaah Salalaahu alayhi wa sallam informed him that it would be better to leave it because it outwardly caused loss. To explain it in a manner we might comprehend it is the scenario of a person selling his business and buying another one. The new business causes him loss and He immediately sells up and returns to his old shop and he recovers from his loss.ALLAH TA AALAA mentions in the qur’aan in surah baqarah, “Many a time we love something but it turns out to be bad for us and many a time we dislike something and it turns out to be good for us.’ In light of this Ayah i hope you understand this hadeeth.

  61. Assalamualaikum Mufti Sahab,

    I have questions on ‘Wasila’ using names of Allah.

    1. Could you please provide me references from Hadith to prove this kind of Wasila i.e using names of Allah, I need to provide it to my friends.
    2. Can we recite- YA MOMEETO BE HAQQE YA MOMEETO?
    3. Does the use of Wasila make our dua / amal more acceptable or successful ?

    JazakAllah and wassalaam
    Wa alaykumus Salam
    Wasla with the Asmaaul husnaa were used by the Sahaabah Radhiyallaahu anhum ajmaeen.There are many such examples to be found in the books of ahaadeeth. If you look under the chapter of the benefits of Asmaaul husnaa in mishkaat you will see numerous names that have been mentioned during du’aa by the Sahaabh r.a and Rasulullaah salalahu alayhi wa sallam mentioning that the Sahaabi has used The Great name of ALLAH by which if asked HE will grant and if du’a made with it HE will accept.
    Therefore to use it in our du’aas strengthens it and causes its acceptance.

    If the internet usage was given for personal usage then it will be permissible to do with it as you please. If given for company work then it should only be used as stipulated.

  63. Asak Mufit Sahab,

    Please let me know the meaning of “Allahuma khirli wakhtarli”, I have read in few books that this is the shortest Istakara.

    Is this Istakara supported by a hadith ?

    JazakAllah and Wassalaam
    Wa alaykumus Salaam
    Yes this form of istikhaarah is found in saheehain. It basically means “oh ALLAH grant me a choice and choose for me.”

  64. Asak Mufti Sahab,

    I read of a Jalali zikar of Naqshbandi silsila i.e “ALLAHU ALLAHU ALLAHU HAQQ” – 3x.

    Please let me know its meaning and whether this is contained in any hadith and also let me know if you know any of its benefits.

    JazakALlah and Wassalaam
    Wa alaykumus Salaam
    I am not belonging to the naqshbandi silsilaa so i cannot be an authority about what they do and if they do it. I will try and find out from someone i.e. our ulema who are linked to the naqshbandi silsilaa.(not the kabaani/haqqaani ones).

  65. Asalamualaikum,

    If the non muslim invite us for Chrismas party or Dewali party. can we eat what ever they have prepared for celebration.

    Please advise
    Jazakallah Khair
    Wa alaykumus Salaam
    Both dewali and christmas are based on false deities and links to shirk and ascribing partners to ALLAH.Therefore partaking in such celebrations are not permissible and are detrimental to our imaan. When rasulullaah Salalaahu alayhi wa sallam made hijrat to madina, he found the Yahud and the medinites celebrating to days. He saaws asked about these days and the on the occasion of eid he mentioned that “every nation has their days of celebrations and the eid is our celebration,” That clearly tells us to respect and revere Eid over other festivities.As a word of advise, RESPECT THE FESTIVALS BUT DO NOT JOIN IN THEIR CELEBRATIONS.

  66. ASAK Mufti Sahab,

    Please answer my below questions on Dua called as ‘Hizbul Bahr’….

    Is it permissible and lawful to recite dua Hizbul Bahr by Shyakh Abul Hasan al-Shadhili?

    Do we need permission/ijazat before we recite this ?

    What are the benefits of reciting dua Hizbul Bahr?

    JazakAllah and Wassalaam
    Wa alaykumus alam
    The hizbul bahr is a compilation of various qur’aanic ayahs and various auraad. If was compiled by Imam shadhli when the Ship was stranded at sea on the way to hajj and there was no wind. It was inspired to him and on recital the wind built up and they were saved and reached their destiny safely. The recital of it has certain amaal in it and therefore would require permission to practice on them.

  67. Asak Mufti Sahab,

    One of my friend has asked me these question’s, could you please answer them, he says he dosen’t have access to your site at office…

    ======================================
    I have a doubt regarding Qasar…….

    As i have travelled from Gurgaon to Bangalore to Hyderabad and stayed for 1 week in Bangalore, am I a muqeem of Bangalore?

    After travelling to Hyderabad staying for more than 15 days I will become muqeem of Hyderabad if not or stayed less than 15 days and once again travelled to Bangalore then what namaz do I need to pray in Bangalore and Hyderabad.

    =============================================

    JazakAllah and WasSalaam
    Wa alaykumus Salaam
    A person will be regarded to be a Musaafir once he undertakes a journey of 48 miles which are equal to 78 kilometers and does not make intention to reside at one place for 15 days or more. During such a journey , it will be permissible for him to perform Qasr salaah. If he intends to stay for 15 days or more at a place then he will c3ease to be musaafir in that place. In the example stated the person in Bangalore will not be musaafir. If in Hyderabad he intended 15 days or more He will be a muqwwn and therefore no qasar salaah for him. If he intends less then he will read qasar. If he stays in one place for 15 days or more then only will he be regarded muqeem if he makes intention for it. If he does not make intention but due to some circumstnce stays for more then 15 days he will not be a muqeem but rather a musaafir. If his journey is for 15 days or more but he stays over in different places then he will be musaafir and will read qasar.If He made intention of 15 or more days in one place and while there leaves and returns to the same place, hwe will still remain muqeem in that place.If the place he goes to for a day or two is more then 78 kms and he is muqeem in one place then the place he travels to he will perform qasr salaah and when he returns to the place where he is a muqeem, he will perform full salah.

  68. Asak Mufti Sahab,

    From Hadith we come to know that “Laylatul Qadar” is better than 1000 months of worship, and in another hadith it says that a person who after Asar Salat on Friday recites a particular Darood 80 times his 80 years of sins will be forgiven and he will be credited with 80 years of worship.

    My question is which of the deeds is better “Laylatul Qadar” or recting darood 80x times after Asar on Friday.

    JazakAllah and Wassalaam
    Wa alaykumus Salaam
    In surah Qadr mit is mentioned that Laylatul qadr is “better” than 1000 months. Definitely laylatul qadr will take preference over the durood of friday. The word better shows its increase in value above a 1000 months andt therefore virtue of Laylatul Qadr is better.

  70. Al-Salam Alaykoum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu.

    As you know in islam it is wajib to honour the names of Allah, his messengers or his angels. It is also out of the question to throw something on wich these things are written in the garbage. Allamah Dassouqi in his hashiyat on sharh al-kabir has mentionned that if someone sees something on the road with the name of Allah and does not pick it up he leaves islam. My problem is that nowadays in the muslim world you will see that every newspaper printed has an article of some sort with the name of Allah and it is impossible to pick all of them up. The hardest part is that it is a newspaper and takes a lot of place since it is big. I know that every garbage can there is one of these newspaper or on the street. I am tired when I go to egypt to tell everyone I see throwing something in the public garbage can don’t do this there might the name of Allah. I am also tired of picking a newspaper everyday so I don’t fall short of my obligation. Once it was so hard for me to get rid of them that I tried to burn them but I put the fire to a house by accident and the police arrested me. I live in the city and I don’t bury them because it is illegal. I also don’t throw them in the water because it is illegal. I would like to know what I should do. Jazakallahu Khairan.
    Wa alaykumus Salam
    Firstly it is not necessary to keep the whole newspaper but rather the piece which contains the name of LLAH. The best is to cut out the articles with the name oF ALLAH in them. The rest can be disposed of.

  71. Dear Mufti Sb

    Is smoking halaal or haraam? I have heard few scholars calling it haraam and few as calling it not haraam? What is your opinion about it? And in such case where is there is difference of opinion amongst scholars, what should one do?

    My 2nd related question is whether working for a cigarette producing (Tobacco) company is halaal or not?
    ASSALAAMU ALAYKUM
    smoking to most ulema is makhruh and if a person persists it does become makhruh tahrimi which is close to haraam. For anything to be declared haraam a clear proof (daleel qat’ii) is required and there is no such daleel in smoking, hence makhruh.
    2.If would be better not to work in such a place if there is an alternative.

  72. ASSALAM-O-ALAIKUM sir pepsi haraam hae kia?
    is there any thing related of pig in pepsi?

    This has to be asked from the producers. Some hve mentioned such things without any valid proof and therefore we canot give any verdict till proof is established.

    I could not find anywhere to post a question except this.
    We know that in the Quran Allah forbades to eat the meat of the animal slaughtered with the name of someone else other than Allah. (rough meaning as I understood).
    Could you please let me know any verse of the Quran or Hadith where Allah forbades the meat of the animal slaugthered without any name (not Allah not anyone else)?
    JazakAllah
    Wa alaykumus Salaam
    Your answer is to be found in three aayaat of the qur’aan.
    [5:3]
    Forbidden unto you (for food) are carrion and blood and swineflesh, and that which hath been dedicated unto any other than Allah, and the strangled, and the dead through beating, and the dead through falling from a height, and that which hath been killed by (the goring of) horns, and the devoured of wild beasts, saving that which ye make lawful (by the death-stroke), and that which hath been immolated unto idols. And (forbidden is it) that ye swear by the divining arrows. This is an abomination. This day are those who disbelieve in despair of (ever harming) your religion; so fear them not, fear Me! This day have I perfected your religion for you and completed My favour unto you, and have chosen for you as religion al-Islam. Whoso is forced by hunger, not by will, to sin: (for him) lo! Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.
    [6:118]
    Eat of that over which the name of Allah hath been mentioned, if ye are believers in His revelations.
    [6:121]
    And eat not of that whereon Allah’s name hath not been mentioned, for lo! it is abomination. Lo! the devils do inspire their minions to dispute with you. But if ye obey them, ye will be in truth idolaters.
    These verses clearly show that only those anoimals on which ALLAH’s name is mentioned is permissible for consumption.

    In hanafi madhab, is it permitted for a man if he misses the jamath in Masjid to offer it at home by organising a jamath with either his wife, or mother or sister ..etc

    Jazakallah and wassalaam
    Wa alaykumus salaam
    Performance im hanafi mathab of salaah with jamah is encouraged. If jamaah is missed in the masjid then it will be better to perform in jamaah with one’s spouse and children as the reward increases.

  76. Asak Mufti Sahab,

    I was reading Tafseer Anwarul Byan and had a some confusion, Maulana Ashiq Ilahi says that Allah attribute “Rahmaan” is shared among his creations i.e the essence of Rahmat can be seen in His creation, whereas the attribute of “Raheem” is only exclusive to Himself and he has not shared it with His creation and this will only be manifested on the Day of Qayamah.

    I have some questions on this context, Is this view authentic? why did Allah not share his attribute of “Raheem” with his creation while He has shared His other attributes with His creation?

    JazakALlah and Wassalaam
    Wa alaykumus salaam
    The difference of the twois based on the usage in the Arabic language.The scales has different efects on the root word.
    The quality of rahmah in raheem is special and is preserved for the Believers in the hereafter.
    The quality of Rahmah in Rahmaan is all encompasing and therefore shared with both believers and non believers.
    Therefore the opinion of Moulana Aashiq ilaahi raa is shared by most mufassiree.

  77. Is it permissable to dress like a group of people who are known for sin. They have a certain dress that makes them known for what they do.
    Can we copy there dress with the intention of imitation?
    aSSALAAMU ALAYKUM
    Imitating the dress of any group or any nation that is regarded as a salient feature of that group or nation is forbidden. Therefore to dress in such a manner is not allowed as it shows love for that group and their evil ways.

    Which one would be more appropriate to recite against the enemies ?
    Wa Alaykumus Salaam
    To be truthdull it is the first time i am coming across these names.I am aware of Dhul quwatil mateeen and not mueet As it stand it does not seem grammatically right. It should be ya dhal quwatil mateen or ya qawiyal mateen.. Both are the same. As for Wazeefah i think ya Shal Quwatil Mateen would be better as it resembles the word of the Qur’aan.

    Allahumma Salli wa Sallim wa Barik ‘ala Habibika Muhammadin Wa ‘Alal Muameneena Wal Muamenaati Abadan abadan

    Also do you know of any benefits of reciting this form of darood.

    Jazakallah Wassalaam
    Wa alaykumus Salaam
    The meaning of it is as follows
    “Oh ALLAH send Salutations and blessings on Muhammad and all male and female believers for ever and ever.”
    As for its virtue i am not sure of it.

  83. I wanted to ask about the alcohol present in creams and lotions. Since it isnt the same alcohol that is drunk, or like wine, is it halal to use such products? I understand if gelatin is present they are haram, but what about the different types of alcohol such as methanol, cetearyl alcohol?
    ASSALAAMU ALAYKUM!!!!!
    Using of creams and lotions that have alcohol is haraam. The reason given for perfumes is that it evaporates and as far as creams are concerned it is equal to applying it to alcohol to the body..

  84. Dear Mufti Sb

    Mr. A, a member of Agha Khan family who lives in UK with his family (of course very rich man) has big export business in Pakistan. He has two wives, one from his familiy and the other one is Qadiani woman. He only comes once or twice a year in Pakistan. His old servant (Mr. B) is taking care of all his export business in Pakistan. Name of Mr. A’s company which is run and looked after by Mr. B is Behroz Enterprises (assumed name). Mr. A gets in to a contract with a foreign Oil & Gas Drilling company to arrange all the establishment / settelement facility for them here in Pakistan. I am offered a job as the overall incharge of this administration as Project Manager by joining Behroz Enterprises.
    Now, Mr. B informs me during interview that Mr. A has his 2nd wife, a Qadiani woman and if asked by Rabwa administration to provide money for something, he does not take a moment delay to send the money there. I am not sure about the belief of Mr. A whether he has converted to Mirzai or not?
    Is it legitimate for me to join Behroz Enterprises for this specific project or it will gain me the displeasure of Allah (SAW)?
    ASSALAAMU ALAYKUM
    Mr A whether he converted to qadiyaanism or whether he is a Agha Khani, both are out of the fold of islam.
    working for a non Muslim is noy a problem as long as he does not demand from you such acts that will be detrimental to your Imaan.

  85. Assalamualaikum! Please let me know whether drawing tattoo, engraving words or letters, on our body is permissible in our Islam or not. Jazakallah.
    Wa alaykumus Salaam
    Tattoos on the body is totally haraam whether it be drawings of animate or inanimate objects. It also depicts an evil mannerism and is linked to vulgarity and disorderly manners.

    firstly i would like to know the type of account and the type of deposit that is done/ I cannot give any answer until this is clarified.

  87. Respected Mufti Saheb

    Salam,

    During Sex, intentionally or intentionally My husband suckle my breast milk. Is that HAlal or Haram

    I have read somewhere, by suckling wife’s milk, the husband does not become MAHRAM. because that is only upto the age of two.

    After dat for a grown up person(husband) doesnt become MAHRAM

    Is it right ? pls guide me in the light od Quran & Sunnah

    As the only thiing which i found in Holy Quran is : “Your wives are your field, You can come in the way you like”

    Please clear my confusion, as my husband sometime intentionalyy wish to suckle my breast milk”

    With thanks

    God Bless you(Ameen)
    WA ALAYKUMUS SALAAM
    There is no hurmat if the husband suckles the wifes breast. However if during bre4astfeeding milk is suckled then he will be causing harm to the child by depriving him of the child’s nourishment.

    • In reply of Asma question, you said that no Hurmat found if the Husband intentionall or unintentionally suckle wife breast milk, but u said its haram, coz he deprive the child from milk
      But in case if its enough milk and the baby is not deprived off, and if he wish and the wife let him suckle, Is that ok Then. As my husband also wish, and i do not want him to unhappy.
      I just want ur guidance as per shariah, rest i do not mind

      Jazak Allah mufti sahab
      ASSALAAMU ALAYKUM
      IT WILL BE PERMISSIBLE WITH KARAHAT IN IT.

      • Salam

        Mufti saheb i asked further detail regarding your answer, but no reply came, evn the question disappeared.

        As you said ” It is permissible but with KIRAhAT”.

        My question is when it is between Husband & Wife only, no other is seeing and both are happy, than how can that be KIRAHAT. Whereas, i have heard about Permissible, Haram or Makrouh. If neither of these not effecting the above issue. Than whats the point of KIRAHAT.

        WE would like our rRSPECTED MUFTIS CLARIFY THE CONCEPTS NOT TO CONFUSE.

        Hope i may get answer this time, that is their any refernece where it is called as KIRAHAT
        Wa alaykumus Salaam.
        Firstly Karaahat means in laymans terms makruh. Makruh are things that should be permissible but due to certain factors and possibilities karahat enters. No person can sya that htere is sufficienmt milk for the child and also the second issue is that throught the drinking of breast milk of a woman in infacy causes that woman to be regarded as a “mother” and her children are regarded as brothers and sisters in a manner that nikah between them is haraam. This act resembles that and therefore regarded as makruh. If you know arabic then i will give the reference and page number and name of book for you to read up on this matter.

  88. Assalam Alaikum Janab Mufti Saheb. My question is I am working in Contracting Co. as an Accountant at Dubai. My General manager is from Palistine and he is Muslim. What he will do whenever income we recived cheque in Millions he Fixed Deposit the money into bank for One month Two month like that for 4% excess give by the bank. So it is Halaal or not in Middle east Islamic banking they are mentioning on paper and advertise.
    And sir what i will do some Salary’s pending of Labors means they left vacated from company and they reach home land that amount i will mention in account as expenses and i send to my Homeland for Poor people for Marriages, Treatment for xyz purpose etc..

    1. The Account type is Saving Account in name of Company. And here the bank will give discount for Over Draft means sometime no balance in account also they clear cheques which we have issued on some charges made at 3 to 5% of Cheque amount value. for example we issued cheque 100,000/- that time in bank 0 zero balance the bank will accept that cheque and clear it to supplier. later he will put charges for 3000/- or 5000/- like that it is called discount bills by bank on OD facility. so and so.
    2. Here in UAE short time Fixed Deposit means for INTEREST(SOOD) Haram says in QURAN for fixing into bank @ 4% like that. In details i want to tell you 1 million we are depositing for 2 to 3 months means the bank will give us 120,000/- (One hundred twenty thousand) ok. This 120,000/- is completely Interest (SOOD).
    Wa alaykumus Salaam
    So the account is basically a cheque account with overdraft facility. What is understood that you fix deposit the money to acquire interest in hope of using it for charitable intentions.
    This is haraam and to take any benefit frokm interest and also to think of benefitting someone with interest money is tantamount to kufr. Interest is like dirt and filth which we have to dispose of., not a means of benefit to the poor. Remember ALLAH has declared war on those who get themselves involved in Interedt. Such schemmes has weakened the muslim ummah and have caused our du’aas to be rejected as we are fed haraam.May ALLAH save us and the whole muslim ummah.

  89. Assalam Alaikum Mufti Saheb aap mera sawal nahi samjhe?? Main Poochna chahta hoon ke Agar ek Company istarha Interest yani sood jama karthi hain bank mein woh hain Fixed Deposit. Main ho Muhasib yani paisa sirf samal ne wala ek NOUKAR aadmi. Woh mera BOSS hain yani Malik. Main agar kuch Jhootay BILLS lagakar Malik ko bataya ke yeh falan kharch howa so and so… Woh paisa to haram hain mujhe maloom hain… Magar main kya sooch roon wohi paisa agar mein kisi ghareeb ki shadi ya kisi zaroorath main jaise kisi bemaar, ya kisi ghareeb bachay ki Padhai mein so and soo….. Aisa karna kya yeh sahi hain ya ghalat… Yani overall main bolna yeh chahta hoon ke….. CHOOR SE CHOORI KI AUR GHAREEB MEIN TAKHSEEM KI………..
    Wa alaykumus salaam
    Kiya haraam se naiki darkar he? Astaghfirullah, yeh naajaaiz aur haraam he aur hamaakat ki baat he. Ghunnah ghunaah hi he. Kiya logon ko khush karne ke liye ALLAH ke ahkaam torna jaaiz hoga?

  90. if a person used mean,abusing and defamatory, words against a company and its owner and employees (Such as; motherfucker, the company is doing the business of zina, all are zanies)at its blogs, emails and websites.whether he can be prosecuted under QAZAF?
    ASSALAAMU ALAYKUM
    If a person callls a person a zaani, i.e. a specific individual, then he is sinful. If He claims he committed zina with a specific person then the laws of qazaf applies.

  91. Assalamu Alaikum
    There is a woman who has a daughter and her husband dies and she marries another man who already has a son from his previous wife.
    Can this son of man who is from his previous wife marry the daughter of his new wife.
    Wa alaykumus Salaam
    Yes they may marry since they have no relationship between them, i.e. blood relations.

    in the name of ALLAH ,The Most beneficient, the most merciful. May peace and blessing decent on nuh (a.s) in the universe..

  94. Assalaamualaikum Mufti Sahab,

    This is a couplet from the famous Qasidah Burdah:

    Huwal habeebul-ladhee Sallallaahu alaihi wasallam turja shafaa’atuhu Li kulli hawlim-minal ahwali muqtahimi.

    I’am not able to find its meaning, can you please provide me its meaning.

  95. Assalaamualaikum Mufti Sahab,

    When dua is read towards the end the following couplet is read, I would like to memorize it, could you please let me know if the couplet/dua is correct and what is its correct meaning:

    Wa sallallahu alaihi wa Sallim wa Barik ‘ala Habibika Muhammadin Wa ‘Alal Momineena Wal Mominaati [and may peace and blessing of Allah descend upon Muhammad and believing men and women]

    Is the arabic wording correct grammatically ? and is the meaning correct?

    Jazakallah wassalaam
    Grammatically it is wrong.
    It would be better as follows.
    Wa sal lil laahumma wa sallim wa barik alaa habeebika Muhammadin wa alal mu’mineena wal mu’minaat.

  96. Assalaamualaikum Mufti Sahab,

    I was reading of a powerful dua, which I have written down, please let me know if the dua is correct in arabic, and also let me know if the grammer and transaltion are correct

    La Elaaha illal laahu Rabba Musa wa Haroon wa Rabba Soluman ibn Dawood wa Rabba Muhamadin Sallallaahualaihiwassalaam[There is no God worthy of Worship but Allah, the Rab of Musa AS and Haroon AS, the Rab of Soluman the son of Dawood AS and the Rab of Muhammad SAW]

    Is this zikar correct? Thanks in advance.
    Jazakallah wassalaam
    Wa Alaykumus Salaam
    The Arabic and meaning is correct.

  97. Assalaamualaikum Mufti Sahab,

    I have heard this dua many times, but I don’t know the correct meaning, what do it means? do you know any benefits of reciting this dua?

    Bismillahish Shaafii Bismillahil Kaafii
    Bismillahil Mu’aafii

    W alaykumus Salaam
    It means ,
    In the nams of ALLAH , The Curer
    In the name of ALLAH, theS ufficient
    in the name of ALLAH, THE CLEANSER

    Jazakallah wassalaam

  98. Assalaamualaikum Mufti Sahab,

    In the below dua..
    Allahu-mag-fir-li-wa-lil-mu-mi-nee-na wal mu-me-naati Wal mus-le-mee-na wal mus-le-maat

    What is the difference between Muami and muslim? all muslims are muamins right? which will include all the belivers before our nation?

    Jazakallah wassalaam
    Wa alaykumus Salaam
    Mu’meen refers to the condition of the heart and muslim refers to the condition of aa;maal(deeds). Therefore every mu’min will b muslim but every muslim is not necesarily a mu’min.
    For you to understand the issue better , i hereby take a aayah of surah hujuraat as explained in tafseer jalaalain-
    { قَالَتِ ٱلأَعْرَابُ آمَنَّا قُل لَّمْ تُؤْمِنُواْ وَلَـٰكِن قُولُوۤاْ أَسْلَمْنَا وَلَمَّا يَدْخُلِ ٱلإِيمَانُ فِي قُلُوبِكُمْ وَإِن تُطِيعُواْ ٱللَّهَ وَرَسُولَهُ لاَ يَلِتْكُمْ مِّنْ أَعْمَالِكُمْ شَيْئاً إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ غَفُورٌ رَّحِيمٌ }

    The Bedouins — a group of men from among the Banū Asad — say, ‘We believe’, we affirm the truth in our hearts. Say, to them: ‘You do not believe; but rather say, “We have submitted”, we are outwardly compliant; for faith has not yet entered into your hearts’, hitherto; however, it is expected of you. Yet if you obey God and His Messenger, by [embracing] faith and in other ways, He will not diminish for you (read ya’litkum or yalitkum, by making the hamza an alif) anything of your deeds, that is, of the reward for them. God is indeed Forgiving, to believers, Merciful, to them. (hujuraat 14)

  99. Assalaamualaikum Mufti Sahab,

    Please let me know if this dua is correct in arabic gramatically –
    Rabbi inne maghloobun fantasir Bi Haqqi Nabyyika Muhammed Sallallaahualaihi wasallam
    {O Rabb, I’am overpowered so help me though the right/wasila of Prophet SAW}

    Also let me know if the meaning is correct
    Jazakallah wassalaamWa alaykumus alaam
    Yes its translaion nd grammer is right. I would like to know what are you doing with all these awraad? Are you studying amaliyyaat?

  100. Assalaamualaikum Mufti Sahab,

    Jazakallah for your detailed explanation.

    MashaAllah, I’am very found of zikar, darood and wazifa and do a lot of research on them reading various books on dua’s, wazifa’s and amalyaat ranging from sufi’s and salafies.

    Its like my hobby and personal interest to learn and recite them and provide advices to my friends and relatives, and mashallah many have benefited.

    Salaams!

  101. Assalamu Alaikum
    3 days ago mother of our office manager expired due to prolong sickness. Our office manager is Dawoodi Bohri. Me along with some other office colleagues approached him in their Jamaat Khana to condole.
    I don’t know if it was appropriate to enter their Jamaat Khana though they only invite people to condole them in their Jamaat Khana.
    I said salaam to my office manager and condole him. He then entered into his mosque hall and started following their traditional rituals for Isaal-e-Sawab for the deceased.
    I wanted to leave but another Bohri who is also colleague in office asked me to stay and leave after having dinner.
    I then intentionally or unintentionally joined him along with other colleagues who were Ahle Sunnat and had dinner in big hall within their Jamaat Khana. My Bohri colleague mentioned it was Fatiha meal which they offer to every one coming to condole.
    I highly doubt if it was Haraam for me to eat, could you please assist?
    What should I do now I heard eating a small piece of haraam his/her prayer will not be accepted for 40 days, I wanted to avoid having dinner but couldn’t due to weak Imaan.
    Jazakumullah ho khair for your explanation in advance.
    Wa alaykumus salaam
    The dawoodi Bohri shia are Staunch anti Sahaabah and therefore they are regarded as Non Muslims. Partaking of their food and joining their ceremonies in itself is a big danger of loosing one’s imaan. Due to the issue you should ask for repentance for your sin.
    However to offer condolences to Non Muslims is permissible. In doing so it was not a problem, but staying for their”faatihaa” was wrong.

  102. asalkm mufti sahab i want to know to use facebook social networking site is halal or haram.plz guide me
    Wa alaykumus salaam
    It has its merits and has its harms. Moreover it depends on what it is used for. If used to chat with the opposite sex and too make a display of yourself then it will be haraam.

  103. Assalamu Alaikum
    I heard in an issue explained by Mufti Taqi Usmani sahib damat barkaatuhum that if person’s income is 51% Halaal & 49% Haraam then it will be permissible for the person to continue doing job.
    For example person is working with a company whose business is 49% Haraam & 51% Halaal then it will be permissible to work in such company. Is that correct????
    Also please clarify for example if a person is doing a job which involves him cheating with Clients & simultaneously he has other job roles which are of Halaal in nature. Will it be allowed to work such a job which has both Haraam & Halaal factor????
    Wa Alaykumus salaam
    I think the verdict of mufti Taqi (d.b.) is misunderstood by many. It refers to working in Non Muslim companies that has income from both Halaal and haraam sources.If the company has income of halaal source whichexceeds the haraam then it will be permissible to work in such an Institution.
    As for your question that is the doing of the individual and therefore to try and fit the Fatwaa on that scenario is totally incorrect.

  104. Assalam-o-Alikum
    I want to know that If a person cheats in Exams then he gets a job based on that degree. Would that job and money earned thourgh such job would be Halal or Haram. Please explain me answers about these questions in the light of Quran and Sunna.
    Wa alaykumus Salaam
    To give you an answer from qur’aan and Sunna about cheats is very difficult. Such acts were notcommon even amongst the non muslims.
    Anyway we try and explain in light of what our piopus predecessors mentioned of such occurances and what rulings were given.
    The act of cheating and attaining a degree is a sin and an abhorred act in Islam. If a person uses that degree to get a job then he is sinful andhas committed a major sin. However you are being paid for the work you do. If the work is done in a competent manner then the wage will be halaal but due to the element of deceit it becomes makruh. In simole words the money will be bereft of all barakah. My advise if try and re write the exams and pass out honestly.

  105. Assalam o aleikum,
    I want to know that what is the shar’i injunction of the person who acts sodomy, in islam? And also tell me that can anyone kill him for this crime?
    wa alaykumus Salaam
    Homsexuality is forbidden in islam and is regarded to be totally abnormal behavior. No Animal will get himself involved in it. We should abstain from it as it is an abhorred act.
    I hereby furnish you with an aayat from surah nisa verse 16 wherein the mufassireen mention the evil of homosexuality. (this is the extract from the tafseer jalaalain.-
    { وَٱللَّذَانِ يَأْتِيَانِهَا مِنكُمْ فَآذُوهُمَا فَإِن تَابَا وَأَصْلَحَا فَأَعْرِضُواْ عَنْهُمَآ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ كَانَ تَوَّاباً رَّحِيماً }

    And when two of you (read wa’lladhāni or wa’lladhānni) men, commit it, that is, a lewd act, adultery or homosexual intercourse, punish them both, with insults and beatings with sandals; but if they repent, of this [lewd act], and make amends, through [good] action, then leave them be, and do not harm them. God ever turns [relenting], to those who repent, and is Merciful, to them. This [verse] is abrogated by the prescribed punishment if adultery is meant [by the lewd act], and similarly if homosexual intercourse is meant, according to al-Shāfi‘ī; but according to him, the person who is the object of the [penetrative] act is not stoned, even if he be married; rather, he is flogged and banished. Judging by the dual person pronoun, it seems more obvious that homosexual fornication is meant [by this verse], even though the former [sc. al-Shāfi‘ī] was of the opinion that it referred to an adulterer and an adulteress; but this [opinion of his] may be countered by the fact that [the reference to] the two [men] becomes clear on account of the particle min being attached to a masculine pronoun [minkum, ‘of you’], and by the fact that they suffer the same punishment, [both effect the action of] repentance and [are both granted] that they be left alone [thereafter], [all of] which applies specifically to men, given that for women detention is stipulated, as was stated

  106. Assalaamualikum Mufti sahab,

    I cam across a wazifa and wanted to know is meaning- Wa izaa bathostum bathostum jabbaareeen, please let me know its meaning in English and also it benefits.

    Jazakallah and salaams
    Wa alaykumus Salaam
    The meaning of the ayah of the qur’aan is
    “And when you take retribute, you take retribute very forcefully.”
    This is the translation and as far as its benefits are concerned i am not aware about it. I have never ever learnt amaliyaat and have no desire to do so.

  107. Is ciggerette haram or not .If one,s father order him to buy ciggrette for himself. Does his son should refuse him
    ASSALAAMU ALAYKOEM!!!!
    Cigerette is makruh. For something to be haraam it requirea a daleel qatii(absolute proof)P. For smoking there is no such proof but due to its harm it is Makruh

  108. is Fixed Deposit Halal or Haram?
    or can i apply for fixed deposit with floating interest.

    or whatever interest i get i want to give it to poor instead of just leaving to bank.

    and how about savings account or checking account?

    jasak allah.
    ASSALAAMU ALAYKUM!!!

    Any account that is interest orientated whether fluxuating or fixed, is wrong and forbidden. If possible to find an account that is based on islamic principles then it wil be better. However if there is no islamic or shariat compliant banking then it will be permissible to open an interest orientated account with the condition that the interest should be seperated from the halaal wealth and if you wish to give it to the poor one should not feel that he/she is benefitting them with the “haraam” interest.

  109. Ashlamualaikum Mufti saheb

    Some one told me that Homeopathy medicine are derived from alcohol origine is it true? if true will it be permisable to consume such medication as a life saving treatment;if this liquid medication spill on the cloth will the cloth will consider impure.

    thanks for your patience

    Zazakallah

    farid
    Wa alaykumus Salaam
    As far as the alcohol used in the medicine, it differs rom the consumable medicine and therefore maby ulema have given jawaaz/permissibility for its usage.I feel that if a non alcoholic replacement is available one should opt for it,.

    ALLAH HAFIZ

    Although it does not fall in the catergory of shari zina but many ulema are of the opnion that the punisshment is the same (imaam shafi ee rahimahulllah was of that opinion).

  111. Assalam u Alaikum
    Playing games on computer is allow or not? As just for relaxing and time passing?
    Wa alaykumus salaam
    Paying games on the computer will be regarded the bettewr of the two evils if it prevents one from galavanting in the arcades and picking up bad habits due to peer pressurw\e. However one should be careful about the games he/she play too. it should not be such that it encourages lewdness and immoral ways.

  112. Assalam o aleikum
    My question is that a murtid is wajib ul qatal but can anyone kill him because now a days there is no qazi and not any islamic rules here and if we the people living here just keep silence and do nothing that will be a great problem, in our areas there are many saahir (magician) and people living here are just forgetting ALLAH and taking help from these lanati saahirs and doing shirk, now can anyone kill these saahirs by himself?
    Wa alaykumus Salaam
    Hudood us shareii can only be executed by an Islamic judicial system and cannot be done individuaaly because it will become very easy tolabel an enemy as one involved in acts that require punishment of death and have him/her killed. Shariat looks to these possibilites and forbids such deeds. Yes if you wish to eradicate the problem there is a necessity to educate he people about the issue and show them n alternative.

    What is the meaning of this wazifa in english? is the arabic grammar correct- Aghisni warhamni Ya Allah ?

    Mufti Sahab if a person does dua and it is accepted by ALlah, will the person be rewarded and receive virtues for the dua in the Akhariah , even though his dua is accepted in this world.

    Jazakallaah and May Allah reward you and your entire team abundantly for such a great service.
    Wasssalaam
    wa alaykumus Salaam
    the meaing is Aid me and have mercy on me OH ALLAH”.
    There are two types of rewards for making du’aa. One is the reward for supplication to ALLAH and following his command and the second reward is specified for those du’aas not granted in this world. The first willbe granted to all but the second is specific to those types of du’aas.

    Is tobacco HARAM or MAKRUH

    Please explain Difference between HARAM and MAKRUH. according to HANFI FIKHA.
    Wa alaykumus Salaam
    Tabacco is makruh. Most of the ulem,a are of this opinion.
    2. The difference between haraam and makruh is that haraam isproven from an absolute proof (daleel Qat’ii) and Makruh is not. Both in essence are very similar as far as abstention is concerned.

    It is better to abstain as we are not sure of the origin of the rennet. Also if the rennet is extracted from an animal that is ot slaughtered as halaal then the rennet will also be classified as not halaal. (Rennet is an extract from the stomach of the animal).

    As i told you tthat as far as amal is concerned it depends on the reason these things are given for. Some aamils actually use, ma aathallaah, the quraanic aayats to do that which is haraam. I cannot give you a fatwah on amal.
    If you found it in a book and you trust the author then the onus is on you. A true aamil that does things for the sake of ALLAH will learn under the tutorship of a pious and learned teacher. By taking from books and doing amaliyaat can be a cause of great harm to you.

    I have another important Question.

    In Australia, people usually leave the stuff (beds, tables, electronic thing, clothes etc.) on the roadside/ footpath which they don’t want to use anymore. Sometime when a new model of an equipment is purchased (for example LCD TV) then they put the old TV (CRT Tube TV) outside for the dumping truck to take it away. From their side they don’t own it anymore so they just place it outside for anyone to pick it or throw it or scrap it etc. You must have heard that this is a common practice in Europe, UK, USA and Australia etc. So is it lawful for a Muslim to pickup such a thing and then make it Paak and use it?
    Wa alaykumus Salaam
    If the thing can be made “pak” and used i see no reason for it to be taken as it is discarded. However it would be more appropriate to ask the ex owner permission and take it.

    Is it allowed for women to cut their hair to some reasonable size. Specially for the woman who wants to reduce the size due to over commitment in taking care of kids and family, She is also purdah observing and does not open her hair or uncover the head in front of namehrams.

    Kindly advise.

    If due to health reasons the hair is cut to the level of the lower back, then it wil be permissible. Remember that the length should not be less then the level with which one can cover the breasts which is a requisite of female kafn.

    Normally companies have laid down rules for the Travelling & outstation staying allowance.
    But the small company that I am working in, we have not been given any laid down rules. Its a private foreign company headed by a local Country Manager in my country. Whatever is his word of mouth (never given in written), becomes the policy. We have no fixed limit by the company for out staion staying allowance. Company reimburses whatever is the actual bill. If I stay at my friend’s place (in out station) and produce the fake average hotel bill and save that money for my personal use which otherwise I could have spent by staying actually in hotel, will it be halal for me or not?

    I don’t want to ask it from the country manager as I doubt they will agree to it. They would be more happy if I save money for company (so that he can show max revenue generation to his credit) this way. But along with this I would like to mention here that since last 2.5 years, since we joined in, none of us, the employees have been given any annual increment or bonus. Our efficiencies are never recognized in terms of bonus or yearly increment but only in terms of few words of appreciation. Whereas, the country manager himself has the salary which is even more than the sum of salaries of hole staff in our country (about 20 people) and the perks he enjoys are unmatchable. He is not the owner of company but in charge of it in our country and does not allow anyone to get in touch with the head office for any complaint.

    Since there is only doubt that your parents earnings are from haraam source ,the pocket money given by them can be used. If an individual has only haraam income and there is totally no halaal income then we should abstain.

My nisabi Chilla is in february 12; i am planning to go pakistan. To save some money if i work part time ( for my physical and mental condition i will no be able to work for full time.) will the money i am getting from the Govt will be jaij/halal for me or i have to declare to govt that i am working ? in that case govt will stop all my facilities and stop giving benefit. in that case it will be very hard for me to do everything accordingly; as i am planning to send my family back home from there i intend to go pakistan. Please advice me.

    Duck is permissible. There is a wrong notion that webbed feet animals are not halaal. This is unfortunately a wrong belief and infact was made haraam for the jews to consume. As for muslims it is totally permissible to consume.
