Getting Married In Shawwaal


Can we say it is recommended to get married in Shawwal because of the narration of Sayyidah ‘Aaishah (radiyallahu ‘anha) that Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) got married to her in Shawwal, or it was just coincidence?



As Muslims, we believe nothing was a coincidence in the life of Nabi (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam). Allah Ta’ala divinely chose for his Nabi (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam) whatever was ideal for him.

For example, our Nabi (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam) left this world on a Monday. This was no coincidence.

Sayyiduna Abu Bakr (radiyallahu’anhu) had wished that he too should die on a Monday.

Imam Bukhari (rahimahullah) has cited the following chapter in his book:

‘Chapter on [the virtue of] dying on a Monday’

(See Fathul Bari, Hadith: 1387)

In the same light, since Sayyidah ‘Aaishah (radiyallahu’anha) was the most beloved of wives to Nabi (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam) -after Sayyidah Khadijah radiyallahu’anha-. Many people take a good omen in also emulating the date of their marriage, so as to acquire love and harmony in their relationship. Like was the case of the relationship between Nabi (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam) and Sayyidah ‘Aaishah (radiyallahu’anha).

There is no harm in this.

In fact, Sayyidah ‘Aaishah (radiyallahu’anha) herself would also like to get the women of her family and friends married off in Shawwal.

(Sahih Muslim, hadith: 3468)

Therefore several Muhaddithun have cited this Hadith [of Nabi (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam) marrying Sayyidah ‘Aaishah (radiyallahu’anha) in Shawwal] under the chapter of it being mustahab to get married in Shawwal. 

See: Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 1093 and ‘Allamah Nawawi’s wording of the chapter in his commentary on Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 3468.


And Allah Ta’ala Knows best,

How to Deal with a Husband Having an Affair with another Woman

When a husband has been afflicted with the great misfortune of having fallen into the trap of an extra-marital affair, it calls for considerable patience and intelligence from his wife. Such a development is extremely delicate and is fraught with calamitous consequences for the marriage bond. The course which the marriage will take largely depends on the attitude and reaction of his wife. If she behaves intelligently and demonstrates considerable patience, she can assist her husband in his predicament and save her marriage. On the contrary, if she loses her mind and gives vent to her emotional feelings, she will only achieve the alienation of her husband. She will drive him away from herself and wreck her marriage.


The wife should understand well that she will never be able to induce her husband to abandon the other woman by displaying anger and by hurling accusations and insult at her husband. When a wife discovers that her husband is having an affair with another woman, the first thing she should do is to arrest her emotional feelings and understand that she will not succeed to separate her husband from the other woman by anger and argument. By adopting anger and a stance of confrontation, her husband will only become more obstinate. Whatever little love and feeling he still cherishes for his wife will be eliminated by her confrontation with him. She will only drive him closer to the other woman.

The husband involved with another woman is emotionally disturbed. His wife’s rough and harsh attitude will convince him that the other woman possesses qualities of love and charm which his wife lacks. Her fighting attitude – which wives usually display when they hear of their husband’s extra – marital affairs – will make her appear as a hag, and a witch to him. Her harsh confrontation with him will eliminate any guilt feelings which he had hitherto cherished in his heart. He will now feel that the other woman is offering him love and happiness which he cannot obtain from his wife. An intelligent wife who desires to salvage her husband and keep intact her marriage, will not allow the situation to deteriorate to this level.

The woman of intelligence and understanding should face this delicate situation with great patience (Sabr), supplicating to Allah Ta’ala to guide her husband and to open his mind so that he wakes up and becomes alert to the dangerous and sinful trap into which he has allowed himself to become ensnared. She should discuss the matter with him intelligently and respectfully without adopting an argumentive and obstinate attitude. She should endeavour to explain to him his folly, wrong and sin. She should endeavour to win over his heart with love and tender tones reminding him of the Law, Fear and Punishment of Allah Ta’ala. If the husband rebuffs her Naseehat, she should not give up hope. Leave the matter for a while and resume the Naseehat respectfully, humbly and intelligently at another time when he is in a better mood.

She should bear her grief within herself, seeking solace in the Thikr of Allah Ta’ala. The Qur’aan Shareef says:

“Those who have Imaan, their hearts find peace with Thikrullah. Verily, with the Remembrance of Allah do hearts find peace.”

She should resign herself to Allah Ta’ala and make Dua earnestly and constantly. She should understand that in the final analysis, whatever Allah Ta’ala chooses for her will be in her best interests. She should, therefore, not allow her grief – which is just normal and natural – to give rise to frustration, impatience, and un-Islamic behaviour. An intelligent wife facing up to this delicate situation with courage, understanding and patience will put her husband to shame by means of her noble and dignified reaction. His indulgence in his error will be self-devouring. He will feel guilty and his injustice will torture his soul. He will feel mediocre in his own heart. His conscience will be smitten with guilt and regret. A good man will soon see his folly and return to his wife humbly and full of shame and regret.

On the other hand, if the wife attempts to alienate her husband from the other woman by adopting a bullying, quarrelling, nagging and un-woman-like attitude, then the result will be the opposite. It will lead to the breakdown of the marriage. A wife should learn a very important rule, viz. that a husband cannot be tamed and won over by nagging and quarrelling. To achieve success for her marriage the wife must be submissive, humble, and walk the path of piety. If she seeks to emulate her western Kuffaar counterparts in the movement of liberalism and female ‘emancipation and equality’, then she should understand that she is treading the road to divorce which is a daily occurrence among western couples.


Extract from: Al-Mar’atus Saalihah – The Pious Women – By Musjisul Ulama of S.A


Q. During the Walimah (wedding feast) the Imaam will make a dua. All present lift their hands and join in the dua. Is this a Sunnah practice?

A. No, it is a bid’ah. Such a collective dua is not part of the Walimah. It is an innovation, hence not permissible. After eating, everyone should make their own dua silently, without lifting the hands. The usual Masnoon dua which is recited after eating should be recited.

Q. According to The Fuqaha women are not supposed to attend Walimahs. I have been informed by some Maulanas that Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) used to allow women to attend Walimahs. Please comment.

A. The Maulanas are all Muqallideen or are supposed to be Muqallideen of the Math-hab. It is not permissible for a Muqallid to deduct Shar’i masaa-il from the Qur’aan and Ahaadith. The limit for the Muqallid is the Rulings of the Fuqaha and the Aimmah-e-Mujtahideen. The Muqallid may not go beyond this limit. There are Ahaadith which say that wudhu have to be taken after eating cooked food. There are Ahaadith which allow women to attend the Musjid. But the Ruling of Allah’s Shariah is that it is not permissible for women to attend the Musjid. Just as it was permissible for women to attend the Musjid during the ageof Rasulullah (sallallahu _alayhi wasallam), so too was it permissible for them to attend Walimahs in that age. Later when Musjid attendance was prohibited for them, it was extended to Walimahs to a greater degree. Do not be misled by the baseless arguments of men with shallow knowledge.

Q. What is the Sunnat way of marriage?

A. Nikah in Islam is a very simple affair. The essentials of a Nikah are only the Nikah ceremony performed in the Musjid. Thereafter is the Walimah feast. Nothing else.

Q. What is the Shariah’s ruling when invited to a walimah? Nowadays most Walimahs do not conform to the Sunnah.

A. It is Waajib (compulsory) to attend the Walimah if one has been invited. However, if any un-Islamic activity takes place at the function, e.g. music, intermingling of sexes, photography, etc., then it is not permissible to attend.

Q. A walimah feast is given before consummation of the marriage. Is this permissible?

A. The Walimah may be before or after consummation of the marriage. Both ways are valid and permissible.

Q. Whose duty is it to arrange the Walimah?

A. The Walimah Sunnat has to be discharged by the husband. The man is responsible for the walimah. The feast which is nowadays organized by the girl’s people on the day of the Nikah is not the Walimah. This customary feast, i.e. given by the girl’s family, is not an Islamic practice. There is no Islamic significance in this feast. The other feasts are feasts of pride and waste.

Q. If a Walimah feast is organized in public hall where men and women mingle, will it be permissible to ignore the invitation one has been given to participate in the Walimah?

A. In fact, it will not be permissible to attend a feast where Haraam activities take place. Such a Haraam gathering will not be termed the Walimah. It is permissible to turn down the invitation on account of the violations of the Shariah at the hall.

Q. In our community usually two feasts or receptions are organized on wedding occasions. Some wedding invitation cards will, for example state: “The bride will receive guests at the Truro Hall (for example)…”, and “A Walimah will be at…” What is the Shariah’s ruling on these feasts? How should a Muslim respond to such invitations?

A. The only Sunnat feast on the Nikah occasion is the Walimah which is a simple feast given by the man. At the Walimah there is no ostentation and no Kuffaar customs. There cannot be any haraam practices at a Walimah. If the Walimah is in accordance with the Sunnah, it will be incumbent to accept the invitation and attend. If haraam acts are perpetrated at the Walimah, then it will not be permissible to attend. Nowadays the Walimah or so-called walimah feast organized at halls in western style with the accompaniment of haraam practices such as photography, intermingling of sexes, etc., cannot be described as the Masnoon Walimah. Such feasts are feasts of evil. It is not permissible to attend such haraam gatherings.

The other reception where the “bride will receive guests in a hall” is a plain shaitaani practice. It is a haraam act from beginning to end. It is an accursed gathering on which the La’nat of Allah Ta’ala descends. It is haraam to attend such an evil and immoral function at which every prohibition of Hijaab and Islamic propriety is violated.

Q. Is it permissible to have the Walimah after seven days?

A. The Walimah will be valid if held at any time whether the first, second, seventh or any other day thereafter. However, the best period is within the first seven days after Nikah. The better course during these seven days, is to observe the Walimah on either the first, second or third day. However, if the Walimah is held after the seventh day, then it will not be incumbent on people to answer the invitation.

Q. Is it necessary for the validity of the Walimah that the Nikah be first consummated?

A. It is not necessary. The Walimah may be held even before the consummation of the marriage.

Q. Is it permissible to have Walimah feast immediately after the Nikah? Is consummation of the marriage not necessary before the walimah?

A. The Walimah after the Nikah is valid and permissible. Consummation of the marriage is not conditional for the validity of the walimah. However, the customary wedding feast organized by the bride’s people is not the Masnoon Walimah. The Walimah is the obligation of the husband.

Q. A walimah feast is given before consummation of the marriage. Is this permissible?

A. The Walimah may be before or after consummation of the marriage. Both ways are valid and permissible.

Q. Whose duty is it to arrange the Walimah?

A. The Walimah Sunnat has to be discharged by the husband. The man is responsible for the walimah. The feast which is nowadays organized by the girl’s people on the day of the Nikah is not the Walimah. This customary feast, i.e. given by the girl’s family, is not an Islamic practice. There is no Islamic significance in this feast. The other feasts are feasts of pride and waste.

Q. If a Walimah feast is organized in public hall where men and women mingle, will it be permissible to ignore the invitation one has been given to participate in the Walimah?

A. In fact, it will not be permissible to attend a feast where Haraam activities take place. Such a Haraam gathering will not be termed the Walimah. It is permissible to turn down the invitation on account of the violations of the Shariah at the hall.

Q. Since the aim of a Walimah is to publicize the Nikah, will the feast usually arranged by the bride’s people on the first day of the Nikah suffice?

A. The feast arranged by the bride’s people will never suffice for the Masnoon Walimah which is a Sunnatul Muakkadah act incumbent on the husband. The feast by the girl’s people is usually a feast of waste and pride devoid of blessing. Such feast have no place in Islam. On the other hand, the Walimah is a simple feast organized in obedience to the command of the Shariah. It is a feast of blessing and merit.

Q. It is Sunnah to attend a Walimah if invited. What if the married couple have a Haraam reception in the hall where men and women will be mixing, pictures taken and other Haraam acts taking place? Will it still be Sunnat to attend the Walimah of this couple if the Walimah feast is held on another day at another venue where there will be no mixed gathering of men and women?

A. It is not permissible to honour these fussaaq by answering their invitation to attend the Walimah even if it will beat another venue. When people violate Allah’s law so flagrantly as these fussaaq people, then it is not permissible to associate with them. It will not remain incumbent to answer their invitation.

Q. Why does The Majlis say that it is not permissible for women to attend Walimahs when there are Hadith to prove that women used to participate in Walimahs during the time of Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam)?

A. If you are a freelancer or like the roaming holy cows of India, i.e. you do not follow any Math-hab, then we have no discussion with you. But if you are a Muqallid of one of the Four Math-habs, then understand well that neither we nor any one on earth today is an Imaam of Ijtihaad. We do not make istimbaat (logically deduct) masaa- il from the Qur’aan and Hadith. There are all types of Ahaadith. Formulating the masaa-il was the sacred function of the Aimmah-e-Mujtahideen of the Khairul Quroon epoch. That era has ended about 12 centuries ago. The limit of our knowledge is the Aimmah-e-Mujtahideen. We do not transgress and gate-crash into a domain for which we are not qualified. When we say that Walimahs and attending the Musaajid and lectures are not permissible for women, then we are proclaiming nothing but the Shariah of Islam which developed from the Qur’aan and the Sunnah. You are not qualified in this field nor do you have the right to attempt abrogation of the Shariah with your understanding of the Hadith.

Q. How should the walimah beheld?

A. Walimah is Sunnat. This is the duty of the husband. Walimah is a simple meal of just a couple of persons, including some very poor Muslims to participate in a simple meal.

Even if five or ten people are invited, it fulfils the Walimah Sunnat. The Walimah may be held at any time after the Nikah, and on any day within the home environment.

Q. When should the Walimah take place?

A. The Walimah (wedding feast) which is the man’s obligation is at any time, after the Nikah. Its validity is not dependent on Consummation of the marriage as some believe.

Attending the Walimah is Sunnat if invited. The feast given by the man after nikah is called Walimah. Answering the Walimah invitation is permissible as long as there are no accompanying haraam acts.

If hijaab (Purdah) is abandoned or any other un-Islamic activity takes place, it will be haraam then to attend such a feast. Such a feast will be ‘the most evil food’. If the Walimah is held in a public hall where females attend, it will not be permissible to participate even if separate arrangements have been made for the women.

The function which the bride’s parents organise on the day of the marriage is not the Sunnah Walimah. The simpler the Walimah, the more barkat there is. According to the Hadith, a few poor persons should also be invited. Their presence prevents the food from being branded ‘the most evil food’.

Q. Are there any particular Sunnat customs to be observed after the Nikah has been performed? Nowadays, we find many practices on wedding occasions.

A. The only Sunnat custom after the Nikah is thesimple Walimah feast which is the responsibility of the husband. It is a feast for only men. All other customs have no relationship with Islam.

Q. Is it true that the Walimah (wedding feast) has to be within three days after the Nikah? After three days it will not be valid.

A. It is incorrect. The Walimah is valid even after three days.

Q. At a family walimah when moulood is held and they stand up to recite their salaami, I defiantly remain seated, this has caused much ill-feeling in the family. What advice do you have for me? ·

A. When you know that bid’ah will be taking place at the walimah, you should not attend. There will then be no need for defiance. It is not permissible to attend a walimah or any gathering where bid’ah takes place.

Q. Bow should a wedding be celebrated lslamically?

A. An Islamic Marriage is a very simple and inexpensive affair. The nikah -entails · no expenses whatsoever. Only-the Mehr (dowry} has to be paid to the bride. · After the nikah the Walimah (Sunnat feast) should be organised by the husband. This too is an inexpensive and simple function. A few relatives and friends should be invited for a simple meal. There is no need for the meal to be a lavish function. There is nothing else which is associated with a truly Islamic wedding.

Q. Is it necessary for the marriage to be consummated before the Walimah?

A. Consummation is not necessary. The· Walimah may be organised at any time. (Walimah is the Sunnat feast which the man organises. It is not the customary wedding feast which is accompanied by haraam acts).

Q. The programme for a marriage is as follows:

(1) Khatmul Qur`aan on Thursday.

(2) Mendi to be put on the boy and girl on Friday night.

(3) Nikah after Esha on Saturday.

(4) The girl will be in a wedding gown.

(5) The wedding is to be in a hall. There will be music and photography. If a Muslim is invited to this should he go or not?

A. The whole setup is a Haraam one besides the Nikah itself. The Khatmul Qur`aan ceremony on this occasion is bid’ah. All other practices mentioned are evil, Tashabbuh bil kuffaar and sinful. It is not permissible to participate in this type of Haraam wedding. It is not permissible to eat the food served at such an un-Islamic function.

”The food of that Walimah is evil where the wealthy are invited and

The poor are ignored (not invited)” (hadith)

How can my marriage be infused with love?

Q: How can my marriage be infused with love?

A: The Holy Qur’aan has offered a beautiful reply in just one Divine Word: RAHM.

Says Allah: “And he has created RAHM and LOVE between you”.

From the above, we learn that the quality of RAHM (Mercy) leads to Love.

RAHM means to have Mercy.
If the husband has mercy upon his wife, she will love him. Mercy means to display kindness, compassion and tolerance. When the wife is unwell, mercy demands that the husband serves her. Mercy demands that when the wife is upset, the husband consoles her. Mercy demands that when the wife is under stress, the husband assist her. Mercy demands that when the wife is unhappy, the husband cheers her up. Mercy demands that when the wife feels threatened by her in-laws, the husband protects her. Mercy demands when the wife is unreasonable, the husband exercises patience. Mercy demands that when the wife requires things, the husband open heartedly spends on her. Mercy demands that when the wife transgressors the Shariah, the husband kindly informs her. Mercy demands that when the wife makes gheebat, the husband warns her. Mercy demands that when the children are troublesome, the husband assists her. Mercy demands that when the wife pleases her husband, the husband compliments her. How much rights don’t husbands demand nowadays – how little Mercy don’t they have.

As for the wife, mercy demands that when the husband arrives tired from work, that she does not scream to the children: “There’s your father. Now go to him.” Mercy demands that when the husband is worried, the wife consoles him. Mercy demands that when the husband does not earn well, the wife does not place a single demand on him. “You and my children are my wealth – what more could I need”, a wife having RAHM would sing. Mercy demands that when the husband errs, the wife will keep his respect in mind and not degrade him in front of his children. She would rather bring his shortcomings calmly to his notice in privacy with Hikmat. Mercy demands that the wife pleases her husband by displaying utmost respect to his parents. Mercy demands that a wife takes pride in her husbands accomplishments. Mercy demands that a wife reminds her husband to earn and eat only Halaal. Mercy demands that she reminds her husband of Allah’s Commands. Mercy demands that she protects her chastity. Her body, her voice, even her clothing – all are meant only for him. Mercy demands that a wife be careful of committing “shirk” in sharing her thoughts of her husband with another man. Mercy demands that she brings him closer to Jannah even though he be kicking and screaming.

This here then is the RAHM which is the foundation of a marriage on earth and made in heaven!

This here is a marriage which pleases Allah and His Rasul Salallahu Alayhi Wasallam. This here is why a Muslim gets married.

Mould your Child

Question:There are parents who allow or insist on their children studying subjects, after school, that are not appropriate for Muslims, e.g. Ballet, Modern dancing, Drama, Band, Piano, Cheer-leading etc.There are parents who allow or insist on their children studying subjects, after school, (not required, but optional), that are not appropriate for Muslims. These include subjects like Ballet, Modern dancing, Drama, Band, Piano, Cheer-leading etc. Often they are paying a fortune for these lessons. I am concerned about what the children are learning from this, other than the subject itself. Many feel the children are little, it’s harmless fun & will learn the right things when they are older. What can we tell the parents? Should we tell the parents anything? Many feel we should worry about ourselves and our families first, set a good example for others to follow.


Jazakallah for the very important query which you have sent to the institute. May Allah Ta’ala guide every one of us to remain on the straight path and to sincerely pay heed to the upbringing of our children. May Allah Ta’ala guide Muslim parents to strive to imbibe an Islamic culture into their children’s lives so that grow up with an Islamic personality which will make them proud to be the flag-bearers of Islam at all times. May Allah Ta’ala guide both the parents and their children to be equipped with the knowledge and the practice of Deen which will stand them in good stead and prepare them to hold their own against the onslaught against Muslims throughout the world. Ameen.

As parents we need to teach our children to LOVE Allah Ta’ala. This love can be developed from infancy if the home is filled with suitable role models. If the child’s socialization process centers around the teachings of Nabi (sallallaahu alayhi wassallam) and around Allah Ta’ala’s commandments, the child will learn to love Allah Ta’ala and be prepared to obey HIS commandments. Our children need to learn that Islam is not just a part of a Muslim’s life but a complete way of life. A true Muslim believes that his/her salvation is through the guidance from Allah Ta’ala. To attain this salvation, parents need to teach their children that faith and action have to be combined. Faith without (correct deed) action is of no value and action without faith is of no value to a Muslim either.

A child’s formative years are most important as the child is really an “open slate.” What the parents inscribe on that slate is what will be reflected in the child’s later years. It is stated in a Hadith of Nabi (sallalaahu alayhi wassallam), “What is learned in childhood is like something engraved on a stone.” Imam Ghazali (ra) states that the stone may break up but the engraving will not be obliterated. As Muslims, each one of us have been taught from infancy the kalimah professing ” that there is no GOD but Allah Ta’ala and that Muhammad (sallalaahu alayhi wassallam) is HIS messenger. Parents have to become aware of temptations in life which divert their attention and interest away from why Allah Ta’ala created us. The world has been created for our pleasure and use. We have been created for one reason only: To worship Allah Ta’ala.

We live in a “high pressure” environment and since Allah Ta’ala has endowed us with intelligence and choice, we have to strive to submit to the good Will of Allah Ta’ala and obey His laws.

Islam demands sound conviction and opposes blind imitation. We are enjoined by Islam to employ our faculties to the fullest extent when exercising our freedom of choice. Along with this freedom of choice Allah Ta’ala demands that we fulfill our responsibilities with regards to our children’s moral and spiritual upbringing.

Let us take a good look at the extra-curricular activities you have mentioned below.

Ballet, modern dancing, drama, band, piano and cheer-leading.

All these activities are a pure imitation of the kuffar lifestyles. None of these activities featured in the life of any Sahabaa (RA) and they definitely are not the precepts of Nabi(sallallaahu alayhi wassallam). These activities are of no value at all. They do not add value to the life of the Muslim. Nor will these activities benefit a Muslim in this world or the hereafter. Oh dear, I have probably raised the ire of some parents by saying these activities will not benefit a Muslim in this world.

Why do I raise this point about “benefit?” Firstly, what is the child going to do with the above activities and perhaps qualifications if he/she develops a talent for these activities? Go on to become a professional dancer, musician, actor and cheer leader? Is this child going to earn a living with these so called talents? Will Allah Ta’ala be pleased with these activities and give the parents and child more barakah in this world and a high status in Jannah?

More important, will these activities give the parents a higher rating up the (social) status ladder and thus open up the doors to more non-Islamic past-times? Like, “My child goes for bla bla classes or, my child has won these trophies in the said bla bla competitions.” So my point again is, how will these activities benefit the child? The parents and their children may enjoy fame and develop “pride” which accrues by participating in these activities. Or the child may develop some confidence, competency or dexterity in performing some of these activities.

I challenge every parent whose children are attending these extra curricular activities to examine their hearts and tell themselves that they are earning Allah Ta’ala’s pleasure. We Muslims have the Quran and the Hadith which clearly teach us about what is acceptable and expected of us as Muslims. If we have the wealth and the know-how to send our children to the above mentioned classes, we also have the know-how about what pleases and displeases Allah Ta’ala. If we have the desire turn our children into “something special”, we should also make a point of knowing what is going to make our children “MOST” special to our Creator.

Every Muslim child’s right over his/her parents is that he/she MUST be brought up with DEEN and Deeni(Islamic) knowledge. The child has to have role models around him/her so that he/she can internalize and practice upon the knowledge gained. Depriving one’s child of a Deeni upbringing and education will condemn the parents to Allah Ta’ala’s displeasure. Many parents send their children to Madrassa but that is where the Deeni knowledge and practice starts and ends. When the children get home, another set of rules and culture prevails. The ‘aalim/’alima teaches the child about what is loved and disliked, what is acceptable /not acceptable, what is allowed and what is forbidden by Allah Ta’ala. However, the child finds that at home what is disliked, unacceptable, and forbidden by Allah Ta’ala, prevails in his/her home. Conflicting messages are being given to the child. This creates not only confusion and dissonance in the child’s mind, but the child begins to mistrust his environment as some adults have to be lying and others telling them the truth, but who?

The children are encouraged to put in many hours of practice on learning the lines for their Drama classes. The children who go for these extracurricular activities often take time off or are frequently absent from Madrassa. This means that the parents place greater importance on non-Deeni activities and the child develops a mindset that Madrassa is just a by the way activity of little importance.

Instead of responding to the Adhaan, the child is busy rehearsing on the drum, flute, recorder or synthesizer or whatever musical instrument. A great amount of time, energy, and money is spent by the parents to make sure their child is well prepared for any of these activities. My question is, are they prepared to make an equal investment on the child’s Deeni education and upbringing?

May Allah Ta’ala protect every Muslim girl from becoming a cheer-leader, Ameen. I truly wonder just how many parents are aware of the culture that surrounds this awful fitnah. ( I find it difficult to even call it an activity or sport, because it is neither.) This is a purely American innovation and it is so sad that our parents are ignorant of it’s ramifications. The American girls, (and lets face it, we Muslims shamelessly love to ape our worst enemies) who become cheer leaders do so for many reasons but there is one special reason. They long to be taken to bed by any one of the guys who are in their favorite team whom they are cheering for. The fellows know this for a fact and they take full advantage of the girls. Some parents may say that they supervise their daughters and that this is not the case here in South Africa. Will they please examine their hearts and tell themselves, “What is different in the activities of a cheer-leader in terms of what the girls wear and DO on the field in South Africa and America.” Then let them ask, “What could be different when they go backstage?” The teachers and parents cannot monitor the children all the time, Shaitaan has already got the children in his grasp, all that is now needed is the destruction of the modesty and Imaan of these children.

Lets not fool ourselves. The parents who allow their children to participate in these activities also allow the viewing of television and movies in the same “democratic” manner. The children also read magazines and books which promote the same culture of innovation. Research in western countries has revealed that these leave a lasting impression on the minds of children. These alien western values and culture which are contrary to Allah Ta’ala’s commands take over the children’s lives and mold their minds. The children slowly but surely develop antipathy towards Islamic laws and practices because they begin to find these restrictive, old-fashioned, and unacceptable to their newfound culture. Negative peer pressure is an added insult to the Muslim child’s mind. Parents start crying tears of blood when these same children become defiant and go on to bring into the home more alien practices. The parents then find that they have no control over their children who are openly defiant and dismissive of their Islamic identity.

Parents may often say, “He/she is still small, there is no harm in letting them learn this or that. When they grow up they take life more seriously and do what is necessary.” If you have allowed your child to beat up, bully and steal from an early age, if you have not stopped the child, if you have aided and abetted the wrong behavior, is your child going to give it all up when he/she reaches a maturity? Allah Ta’ala does not misguide anybody. One who has gone astray will not find the right path until she/he makes the choice to find it once again. However, if the child has not been taught to value and desire the right path, will the child really want to find it, belong to it and treasure it?

Remember, what the child has learned, especially when paid for and encouraged by the parents, is engraved in stone.

As parents we need to examine our own upbringing and lifestyle. If our rights were not fulfilled in that we did not have adequate Deeni education as children, are we going to make the same mistake with our children? Unfortunately, so many of our generation grew up with an Indian or western culture. We ourselves need to get back to our Roots. That is to ISLAM. Islam means submission, purity, and obedience to the will of Allah Ta’ala. As Muslims we should stop settling for poor substitutes and actively seek to improve our practice and knowledge of deen. I recall a professor of English who reacted to an adult student’s childish behavior during a tutorial. She said rather sarcastically, “Learning is said to have occurred only when behavior change occurs.” As parents we need to change our behavior from one that apes the kuffar to one which is in keeping with the precepts of Nabi (salallaahu alayhi wassallam).

Alhamdoelillah, there are so many avenues our children can be directed in seeking this knowledge. Our greatest wealth, treasure, and pride can lie in the love of Allah Ta’ala when our children grow up with not only a secular education but also a deeni education. Both of these can serve them and benefit the children and parents in this world and the hereafter, insha’allah. There are many secular extra curricular activities which are acceptable and beneficial for our children. For instance, swimming, marshal arts, athletics, debating, speech training, Math, Science, Quranic, Hadith, Fiqh etc. competitions. Older boys and girls should participate in them separately to maintain modesty and thereby observe Allah Ta’ala’s commandments of “Purdah.” It is also important to teach the children to stop when salaah becomes due, perform salaah and then resume their activity.May Allah guide our children to becoming the flag bearers of Islam.

May Allah Ta’ala grant parents the Hidayah to fulfill their children’s rights over them. The greatest inheritance a parent can leave their child is a Deeni upbringing. A pious child is of the greatest benefit to a parent for it is that same pious offspring who will continue to make Dua for you long after you have left this world. Although Jannah lies under a mother’s feet and the father is the key to Jannah, our children can also be of benefit to us in the qabr and the Aakhirah. May Allah Ta’ala guide every parent to strive to fulfill their children’s right over them. Ameen.

Kindly peruse this ruling. It appears from this ruling that there is leeway for the permissibility of IVF. Is this correct? Is artificial insemination permissible at any time?


Choosing the gender of a child with IVF – Is it Halaal?


“Can I make use of a type of IVF where a couple can choose the gender e.g. boy or girl, is this Halaal?


Almighty Allah says in the Holy Quran,

لِلَّهِ مُلْكُ السَّمَـوَتِ وَالاٌّرْضِ يَخْلُقُ مَا يَشَآءُ يَهَبُ لِمَن يَشَآءُ إِنَـثاً وَيَهَبُ لِمَن يَشَآءُ الذُّكُورَ – أَوْ يُزَوِّجُهُمْ ذُكْرَاناً وَإِنَـثاً وَيَجْعَلُ مَن يَشَآءُ عَقِيماً إِنَّهُ عَلِيمٌ قَدِيرٌ (الشوري:49)

Translation: “To Allah belongs the kingdom of the heavens and the earth. He creates what He wills. He bestows female upon whom He wills and bestows male upon whom He wills. Or He bestows both males and females, and He renders barren whom He wills. Verily, He is the All-Knower and is Able to do all things.”

(Comment by The Majlis: So far, the fatwa is correct.)

Human beings by nature have desires and wants. Almighty Allah is the Knower of all things. He knows exactly what is best for us. If He decides to give us something, there can be no doubt regarding it being best for us. Almighty Allah says in the Holy Quran,

وَعَسَى أَن تَكْرَهُواْ شَيْئًا وَهُوَ خَيْرٌ لَّكُمْ وَعَسَى أَن تُحِبُّواْ شَيْئًا وَهُوَ شَرٌّ لَّكُمْ وَاللّهُ يَعْلَمُ وَأَنتُمْ لاَ تَعْلَمُونَ (البقرة:216)

Translation: “But perhaps you hate a thing, but it is good for you; and perhaps you love a thing, but it is bad for you. And Allah Knows, while you know not.”

It is a fundamental principle of Islamic Jurisprudence that one must avoid imposing upon one’s physical body actions that are usually considered to be unnatural and unconventional unless there is a dire necessity for doing so. (This is correct – The Majlis) For instance, the human body is accustomed to acquiring its food and drink orally through the gullet, but there are times when, due to certain ailments, food cannot be given to a patient orally. In such cases, the patient is then fed intravenously. Oral feeding is the conventional method whereas the intravenous one will be considered to be the unconventional one.

Shari’ah only permits the intravenous method due to necessity as man cannot usually survive without food and drink.”

(Comment by The Majlis: The Mufti has expressed himself incorrectly on this point. The body has not been artificially customized for the natural process/method of consuming food. The way people are consuming their food is natural. It is the natural method created by Allah Ta’ala. It is not merely a ‘conventional’ method. It is not a method which has been adopted and made conventional. It is the only natural way for the ingestion of food.
When a person, due to some grave disease, is unable to eat with his mouth and is forced by circumstances to consume food with his posterior or be fed intravenously, then such methods will be unnatural, not merely ‘unconventional’. An unconventional method can sometimes be natural, e.g. drinking water with a straw, or eating with knives and forks, or eating from a brand new or a thoroughly cleansed chamber pot. While this kind of westernized shaitaan will be eating naturally (i.e. via his mouth), the method will be unconventional and haraam.
Thus, the unnatural method will be permissible ONLY in case of Dharoorat (DIRE NEED), not hallucinated ‘need’ as the liberal muftis of this time imagine. Dire Need (Dharoorat) is only a need upheld by the Shariah.
The factor of Zigzagery

At this stage in his fatwa, the Mufti has subtly introduced the first step in his Zigzag datwa. He has subtly introduced the factor of Dharoorat to render the reader’s mind conducive for the acceptance of the corrupt, baatil conclusion of his liberal view.

The ploy is to imprint in the mind of readers that the desire of having a child is a Dharoorat, hence the ‘permissibility’ of artificial insemination. Thus the zigzagging between Haqq and baatil should be conspicuous to all intelligent men.
Continuing his fatwa, the Mufti says:

“In the absence of necessity, Shari’ah does not recommend the usage of unconventional methods of infusing objects into the body.” (This is incorrect. It is a devious attempt to mismanipulate the Shar’i principle of Dharoorat, and to confuse the unlearned. In the absence of ‘necessity’ (Dharoorat), the Shariah forbids usage of unnatural and unconventional methods. The Shariah does not merely “not recommend” the haraam methods. It strictly forbids the satanic methods. This is the second step in the process of zigzagery. -The Majlis)

Zigzagging back to the Shariah, the Mufti says:

“That brings us to your question regarding artificial insemination. As all the modern methods of artificial insemination (GIFT, IVF, IVI and ICSI) are not conventional (in fact are unnatural satanic methods – The Majlis) methods of inducing fertilization nor are these procedures a matter of life and death, opting for these procedures would be against the principles of Shari’ah.

In instances where these procedures are carried out by a doctor, which is more likely, many aspects of it will be considered to be prohibited by the Shari’ah.

Firstly, the male will be required to extract sperm through masturbation. This is not permissible. In the event the sperm is extracted lawfully, the female will be required to expose her Awrah to the doctor. One is only allowed to expose the Awrah to a doctor in the case of dire necessity.

(The Majlis comments: This section of the fatwa conforms with the Shariah. However, the Mufti reverting to his zigzag haraam liberal trajectory, avers):
“If you are unable to conceive through natural methods, and there are no other alternatives, then there is leeway in making use of IVF.”
(Our Comment: This is the satanism which shaitaan has inspired into the brains of the Mufti. With this stupid statement he seeks to impose on the understanding of ignorant people that sterility (uqmah/barrenness) is Shar’i Dhuroorat justifying the commission of haraam and a major sin.
While this wayward Mufti begins his Zigzag fatwa with the appropriate Qur’aanic Aayat, he conveniently or surreptitiously or ignorantly refrains from taking into account the penultimate statement of the Aayat which has a fundamental bearing on the issue under discussion. In this statement, Allah Azza Wa Jal says: “He makes barren whomever He wills.”
The sterility whether in the woman or the man, is the act and will of Allah Ta’ala. In this Aayat, Allah Azza Wa Jal explicitly informs us of His Will and Desire. Under no stretch of Imaani rationality and reasoning can it ever be valid to act in contravention of Allah’s Will and Desire despite the fact that in this dunya Allah Ta’ala has bestowed to humans limited ability to act in conflict with His Will. Since this dunya is the arena of trial and conflict where Muslims have to choose between halaal and haraam, vice and virtue, the limited freewill has been granted to man.
However, the freedom to act in violation of Allah’s Will and Desire does not halaalize the improper utilization of the freedom to act. It is Allah’s Will and Desire that adultery be not committed despite the fact that man has been granted the freedom to act in conflict with the Divine Will. Similarly, it is HARAAM to violate Allah’s Will and Desire regarding ‘barrenness’ despite the haraam ability to do so by the satanic IVF technique invented by the Satanist atheists.
It is this satanistic technique of artificial insemination which is a conglomeration of haraam, filth and satanism which this miserable Mufti Sahib has attempted to slip into the Permissibility folds of the Shariah by the intentional misapplication of the Shar’i principle of Dharoorat.
The Mufti has painfully, stupidly and satanically laboured most deviously and without dexterity, to zigzag his baatil view of permissibility into the fabric of the Shariah.
If a woman is unable to conceive lawfully by the natural method created by Allah Ta’ala, or by even permitted unconventional methods (such as Ta’weez and Amaliyaat, and lawful medicine) which all come within the purview of lawful Asbaab (valid material ways), then it does not justify nor render permissible the haraam satanic techniques of the atheists kuffaar. Her only recourse is Dua, Sabr and Tawakkul. There is no other option. –The Majlis)
The Mufti then says:

“However, it will still not be permissible to tamper with any aspect of the process to ensure a specific gender. Whatever has been decreed for you can never escape you. If you are granted males, be thankful. If you are granted females, then too you must be thankful.”

(While this is correct, it is an attempt to zigzag back to the Shariah, albeit a futile attempt. It is futile because it is in stark conflict with his ‘leeway’ view. There is no difference between this haraam attempt and the other haraam attempt of IVF for the purpose of pregnancy. Both techniques, i.e. to resort to haraam for inducing pregnancy, and for resorting to haraam for selecting the gender of the future child, are satanically villainous, hence HARAAM. There is absolutely no Shar’i Dharoorat principle applicable in these two haraam techniques.Whtever has been willed by Allah Ta’ala for you, accept it with contentment.
Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said: “It is of the good fortune of a person that he is pleased with whatever Allah has decreed for him/her.” – The Majlis
With conspicuous hollowness and insincerity, the Mufti advises:

“Have hope in the mercy and bounties of Almighty Allah. Make Dua to Almighty Allah if you wish for a specific gender. Almighty Allah says in a Hadith Qudsi,

يقول الله تعالى: أنا عند ظن عبدي بي

Translation: “I am to my slave as he thinks of me, (i.e. I am able to do for him what he thinks I can do for him).”
Checked and Approved by,
Mufti Ebrahim Desai.


The haraam and corrupt fatwa issued by Mufti Ebrahim Desai on the issue of IVF is incompatible with the sentiments expressed by the Mufti in the above avernment. These sentiments may not be restricted to only selective haraam acts. Dua, Tawakkul, Sabr and Ridha apply to all states of the Mu’min. These noble attributes of moral excellence have to be incumbently employed in all instances which demand abstention. Just as it is Waajib to abstain from the haraam technique of gender-selection, so too is it Waajib to abstain from the haraam technique of inducing pregnancy.

Our advice to the Mufti Sahib is to endeavour the restoration of his Imaani bearings by shunning western ideas of liberalism which the Muftis of today adopt especially in modern financial matters, more specifically in the dalliance with the riba banks. Fear Allah Ta’ala. Maut constantly hovers over our heads. Prepare for the stay in Barzakh. Do not barter away your Aakhirah in exchange for the jeefah of this dunya. Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhhi wasallam) said:

“The dunya is jeefah (carrion).”

True Love?

In today’s world, a lot of young people are afflicted by a serious illness that is even more deadly than any virus or bacteria. It is an illness that affects the heart and will cause its death, if not treated.

This illness is none other than love before marriage and it is with great sadness that a lot of youth fail to realize that in reality there is no such thing as “true” love before marriage, yes, there might be crushes, infatuations and the likes, but true love? No.

Some people might argue and say, how can you make such a bold statement?

To that I reply, love is what creates happiness not sorrow, love is what gives you a peace of mind not worry and anguish but most importantly, love is that which brings you closer to Allah Azza wajal, not that which will push you further away from Him and incur His wrath.

Yet there are a few brothers and sisters, who truly love Allah, only to find their hearts crippled by this disease, they have apparently fallen in “love” with the opposite gender (before marriage) and can’t seem to stop thinking about them and become neglectful of life as a whole.

These individuals sometimes regret falling in love and want a way out, they want a cure for this illness, but is there really a cure?

Listen to what Imam Ibn al-Qayyim Rahimahullah has to say:

“And the cure for this deadly illness (i.e. love before marriage) is for the person that is afflicted to realize that this love is only due to his/her own delusions and ignorance.

So upon such a person is to first and foremost strengthen their Tawheed and reliance upon Allah,

and secondly to increase in worship and busy themselves with it, so much so that they do not have any spare time letting their minds wander and think about their beloved.

And they should call upon Allah to protect them and save them from this evil, just as Prophet Yusuf called upon Allah and he was saved.

And they should do as he did, be as he was, in terms of ikhlaas (sincerity) and remembering Allah in abundance.

This is because if the heart is filled with ikhlaas for the sake of Allah, there will be no space left for any unlawful love to be present, rather this only happens to a heart that is empty and has no ikhlaas whatsoever.

And let such people remind themselves that whatever Allah has decreed for them is only in their own best interests, and when Allah commands something it is never to cause harm or misery to His slaves.

And let them also remind themselves that their unlawful love does not benefit them, neither in this world or the hereafter!

As for this world then they will be so preoccupied with their love that it will cripple them and will cause them to live in a fantasy world.

And as for the hereafter then it will cause them to be preoccupied with the love of the creation instead of love for the Creator!

These people need to be reminded, that the one who is emerged in something will never see its ill effects, neither will the person who has never experienced such things.

The only people who will be able to relate to them are those who have experienced the same thing but have been saved. Such people can look back and realize how evil it is.” [ad-Daa’ wa ad-Dawaa p. 300]

Heartbreak! Divorce filings rise 40 percent around Valentine’s Day: study

Valentine’s Day may be an occasion for sweethearts to exchange gifts, but it has increasingly become a time for divorce, according to a new study.

Data compiled by, a site that offers free ratings and profiles for lawyers and licensed MDs, found that divorce filings skyrocket about 40 percent this time of year.

“Over the past two years we’ve seen an average increase of 40 percent in the number of requests for divorce lawyers around Valentine’s Day, compared to the previous six months,” said Mark Britton, founder and CEO of Avvo.

“Furthermore, the number of questions about divorce has soared 36 percent during that same time. Indeed, there’s definitely a major Valentine’s spike when it comes to divorce.”

Kelly Chang, a Los Angeles-based divorce lawyer said she has seen an increase in divorce filings shortly after Valentine’s Day.

“This can be attributed to two major groups of people: the ‘Delayed New Year’s Resoluters’ who are merely moving forward on their resolution to be single, just a month late, and the ‘Waiting to Exhalers,’ who, depending on the actions of their spouses on Valentine’s Day, will either reconcile or file for divorce,” she said.

New Jersey lawyer Cary Cheifetz agreed, saying, “We see a definite spike in divorce cases around Valentine’s Day. I see it as a combination of cabin fever, people waiting until after the holidays and most importantly, people waiting until they know what their spouse’s bonus and income situation will be in the New Year.”



What is the shar’i ruling of hermaphrodites with regards to marriage and inheritance?

1.What is the shar’ee ruling regarding a hermaphrodite with regards to:


b) inheritance?

2. In a case where a man married a hermaphrodite, not knowing her natural phenomenon (as he/she is predominantly feminine in features) happens to find out after the nikah has been performed, what is the ruling concerning this?



In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.


As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.


hermaphrodite is an organism that has reproductive organs normally associated with both male and female sexes.  It is known as a khuntā in the Arabic language.  All the books of Islamic law have a chapter dedicated to the laws relating to a khunthā.  [1]


Firstly, all measures will be taken to ascertain the sex of a khunthā.  If the hermaphrodite urinates from the male reproductive organ, he will be regarded as a male.  If the hermaphrodite urinates from the female reproductive organ she will be regarded as female.  If the hermaphrodite urinates from both male and female organs, the first one to release urine will be considered.  All these signs will be analysed to ascertain the gender of the hermaphrodite prior to adolescence.[2]


If the gender of the hermaphrodite was not ascertained prior to maturity, then the gender will be determined after maturity.[3]


The hermaphrodite will be classified as a male in the following instances:

  • He has conjugal relations with his male reproductive organ.
  • He has facial hair.
  • He experiences nocturnal discharge like men.
  • His testimony of his inner self.
  • He is inclined to women.


The hermaphrodite will be classified as a female in the following instances:

  • The growth of breasts like women.
  • The experiencing of menstruation.
  • She has intercourse like a female.
  • She falls pregnant.
  • She lactates.


If none of these signs transpire, the hermaphrodite will remain a hermaphrodite.  According to Imam Sarakhsi rahimahullah, it is virtually impossible for some of the above signs not to manifest.[4]


A hermaphrodite’s marriage will be not be valid until the gender is ascertained.[5] If the gender is ascertained and the sex is the same as that of the partner, the nikāh will be invalid.  If the sex of the hermaphrodite is opposite to that of the partner, the hermaphrodite if he is a male, then he will be given one year respite to remove any physical defects, or else the partner may apply for an annulment of the marriage.[6] If the hermaphrodite is a female,   there is no need for a respite as the husband has the right of divorce.


To hide such defects which are generally disliked or cause disinclination to a prospective spouse is deception.  The Prophet salallahu alaihi wasallam said,

“Whoever deceives us is not from amongst us.”[7] (Sahih Muslim)


With regards to inheritance, a hermaphrodite will receive the share which is the lesser amount of the possible shares.  In every scenario, the hermaphrodite will be envisaged a male and female, in whichever state the hermaphrodite receives less, the hermaphrodite will be treated as that gender for that particular scenario and subsequently given that share.[8]

فَإِذَا ظَهَرَ أَنَّهُ خِلَافُ مَا زُوِّجَ بِهِ تَبَيَّنَ أَنَّ الْعَقْدَ كَانَ صَحِيحًا، وَإِلَّا فَبَاطِلٌ لِعَدَمِ مُصَادَفَةِ الْمَحِلِّ

An eye-opener for Muslims, is the following lament of a Sister from the U.K.

“Assalamu Alaykum,

Regarding the fatwa issued by 17 scholars in Pakistan on Travelling without a Mahram and the response by The Majlis, I have some thoughts on this as a female living in the West (UK), second generation who always saw women living in the UK as females who went out, shopping, work, etc etc. It was all normal to me as I did not grow up with knowledge on this subject. Islam was very foreign to me in terms of masaail. However at that time there was no open mixing between the learned and unlearned. People kept within the limits to a great extent. When I was a teenager, not that long ago, this changed.

I have witnessed married scholars, muftis groom girls many years younger than themselves. Whilst Islam permits polygamy and the age difference isn’t an issue, they did not have the right intention as they continued to groom these girls without directly going to their fathers and asking for their daughters hand in marriage despite being in contact with the father.

They would use their knowledge of deen as a way of grooming these girls, talking daily, putting down their first wives and second wives to the teenage girls. This didn’t just happen in front of me but all over the UK. Some of these scholars commit zina with these girls and then use the leverage of exposing the girl if she goes to expose him due to their status in the community. People will believe him and not the naive teenager. Seeing this over and over, created a very choking environment for me. I alerted the elders many a time but despite them agreeing the evidence was there, nothing was done.

These scholars audaciously come in front of the families of the teenager and befriend them. They have no shame at all. It is very difficult for these girls to understand that one day they will have their own true loving husband because these scholars have no intention of marrying them and just stringing them along and doing whatever they can do to them in that time. So many have not been exposed because it would hurt the future of the unmarried girl. It is like they are stuck in this foggy environment where they cannot see right from wrong (we could go into the effects of fluoride here but this can be researched separately).

The 17 scholars state that time has changed so the fatwa needs modernising. Yes times have changed, they are worse. Taqwa has left. Openly sinning is the norm. Shame has left.

I enrolled and taught at different Islamic schools and madaaris and it is so easy for Shaitan to make the male and female teachers commit haraam because the parents are not around, families are not around. In the UK we have ‘safe’ means of travel in general, buses and trains and plenty of places to meet up with the opposite gender. Unfortunately there are teenagers who have had an abortion because they found themselves in the position they preached against, whether a normal every day Muslim or a student of knowledge. It’s happening in all scenarios. It’s not just the molvis and apas and madrasah students. It’s even those who are deendaar people who would never think of themselves to commit zina but have and as Muslims we should, in this day and age, absolutely accept every single advice of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that Shaitan is the third party no matter how strong you think you are. The modern times makes it so easy for Shaitan to push us. The opportunities are there, the hotels are there, the travel options are there. One finds themselves saying it is haraam and the next second Shaitan has swept us off our feet in a situation we do not want to be in yet this brain fog stops the male and the female from leaving.

The Majlis has quoted several news articles regarding Islamophobia all over the world including the UK. In the UK people generally spread the news of a recent attack on Muslim women in their own areas and I know there are hundreds of more incidents that could have been added from the UK alone. Niqabs are being pulled off frequently but most of these are not reported. The women in that area are afraid to the extent they don’t talk about it. The answer would be to stay home but going back to my opening sentences, we are so used to going out and about despite now having the deeni knowledge we once didn’t have but then we are afraid of the consequences. We have to admit that trying to be progressive is of no use as when these muslimahs report it to the police or the supermarket then they are told there is nothing we can do. We can’t expect protection of Allah Ta’ala when we go against His Deen.

Despite all of the above, there is a change in society now. The knowledgeable deeni people are being replaced with a fresh new wave of Muslims, reverts and those Muslims who had no knowledge their entire lives but are now turning to Allah azza wa jal in hope and fear. People I would not have imagined wanting to fully practise the Deen of Allah azza wa jal are now turning to Him. After seeing the negatives above, this is very refreshing.

I cannot fathom how 17 scholars came to such a ruling because I am just one random person with very little experience and I have seen in the Haram Shareef men talking to young girls openly just like you witnessed decades ago. I have seen the stares from the young males in front to the young girl a few feet behind during tawaaf of the Ka’bah. This was a few years ago and now fitnah is worse and more open to be seen by all.

I do not need to be a mufti to see that it is unsafe for women to emerge. Recently two 14 year olds were attacked in the UK on a bus. They had friends with them. They were approached by a woman telling them to take their hijab off. I remember my teen years, we would go out on the bus and teenage Muslim girls seem to be louder than non Muslim girls. Loud giggling and cackling. I was quite shy as a teen but I was still out and about as it was the norm. It was only when I started to hang around with the non-Muslims at school did I learn proper adab and that you can be calm and respectful. I didn’t understand what the muslimahs were trying to prove by acting that way. It was very depressing. I am not saying these 14 year olds were doing that but only a 10 year old kid came to their rescue and he was attacked for doing so. The muslimahs were brutally attacked and the male who was with the attacker blocked anyone from helping the teenagers. In such an open environment I don’t see how he blocked others from helping except that this is a wake-up call from Allah Ta’ala. But instead of Muslim females acknowledging this, they protest and rant at the ‘injustice’ – that no one is helping them.

My understanding of life as a female in the west in 2020 in that we need to go back to the basic rulings of Islam from ancient books and go through each ruling one by one and act on them. We need to shun modern rulings because Allah Ta’ala is very openly telling us this is not the way. We need to accept our role and it isn’t a regressive one. This role protects us from abuse of the men outside, it means all those teenagers, now full UK adults will have no regrets of being groomed and abused. It means that mothers can concentrate on the tarbiyah of their children. It means we can complete all our qazas which majority of people in the UK have due to the schooling system instead of going to all the Islamic talks and wasting time. It means we can then catch on when a scholar makes an odd statement and not follow him blindly. If a scholar says a female can be an aalimah, hafizah and gain a degree at university then perhaps he has some things going on in his life in conflict with Deen such as attending mixed events himself because even if this aalimah sticks to her study at university and prays Salah in the Salah room, the males on the other side of the cloth still manage to gain opportunity to talk to her and make her feel worthless.

I could write an entire book on the issues that women face, the grooming, the attacks but it will not achieve anything because a muslimah needs to accept that the rulings of the early Fuqaha are Islam and this is the only way that she will find protection and ease of heart in this world. She can still have a business from home, she can still study, she can do anything within the comforts of her own home in this day and age. There are many arguments these females are putting forward to justify their need to go out but they are not valid because generally what they mean is they do not put trust in Allah and are putting trust in modernism to save the Muslims. But it isn’t working out . We’ve had all of these years of modernism, where has it got us? We can be modern. We can take the good and leave that which causes harm. This is the balance Islam provides but not accepting that the harms in the dunya are as a result of our own misconduct is something we need to work on.

From my experience, the people who spout corrupt fatwas are participating in the corruption themselves. They may only be a little into it but not realising the effects it can have on the Ummah.

Reading the examples in your book, gave me many flashbacks of the things I and other females have witnessed. It is only Allah Ta’ala’s fazl that I and other females in the west are still on the path of Islam as the roads we have tread upon were very far from Him. May Allah azza wa jall forgive us all and allow us to feel content on the rulings of the fuqaha so that we can enjoy eternall bliss in Jannah. Ameen. Wassalam (End of the Sister’s letter)


The ‘scholars’ to whom the Sister refers are in reality shayaateen (devils) in human bodies or men with the hearts of wolves as mentioned in the Hadith. They are Iblees-incarnate. They plunder the hayaa (shame and chastity) of females who are vulnerable due to their natural attribute of nuqs fil aql (intellectual deficiency). Taking gross satanic advantage of such vulnerability these devilish molvis and sheikhs gratify their zina lusts without any semblance of Imaani conscience or fear for Allah Azza Wa Jal.

These scholars of lust and agents of Iblees are the primary cause for the ruin and destruction of the Ummah. They are the worst kind of traitors in the Ummah. Under subterfuge of their outward Islamic appearance they perfidiously perpetrate heinous and scandalous crimes of zina and concupiscence. It is difficult to believe that such scoundrels as described by the Sister have any Imaan.

Further, the reality on the ground – the real dangers to which Muslim females outside the home have to be confronted with, at the very minimum testifies to the colossal ignorance of those muftis who have the temerity to issue corrupt and stupid fatwas legalizing the haraam act of women travelling without mahrams. In fact, it is haraam in our day for women to venture out of their homes to attend to even needs within the neighbourhood. In these times of fitnah and fasaad it is incumbent for a mahram to accompany a woman when she desires to visit even a next door neighbour for a valid reason. These muftis who disgorge stupid zigzag fatwas are described as mufti maajin by the Fuqaha. They are moron muftis who are adept in the art of stupid and devious interpretation for abrogating Shar’i ahkaam which have come down in the Ummah from the era of the Sahaabah. These moron muftis are in the satanic game of fabricating a new shariah to appease the modernist zanaadaqah.

Be exceptionally weary of the muftis of this age. A sincere Muslim will not become enmeshed in the tentacles of deception of the maajin muftis, if he consults his heart, for Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said: “Seek a fatwa from your heart.”
