1 Visiting Aamils and fortune tellers Wed 18 Mar 2015

Many women frequent the Aamils, fortune tellers, etc. What is ruling in regards to such women?

One should keep distant from Ghair Maharim. Going to the fortune tellers and requesting them to inform you of the unseen are even dangerous. If there is a need to see an Aamil then one should visit him with one’s spouse or a Mahram brother, etc.

8 Seerah Jalsa in Rabi'ul Awwal Mon 04 Mar 2019


Are Seerat Jalsas in Rabi'ul Awwal correct in Islam? 

Having gatherings in which mention of Rasulullaah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam is made, by taking his name, by mentioning his Mubarak Seerah, enumerating his Sunnahs and sending salutations upon him is a means of great blessings and definitely merits great rewards. However, all these have to be carried out without indulging in the customary unsubstantiated practices prevalent in many Meelads and actions contrary to Shari’ah.

12 Works of Shakespeare in comparison to the Qur'an Tue 05 Mar 2019


The Quran says:

“Say, If mankind and the jinn gathered in order to produce the like of this
Qur'an, they could not produce the like of it, even if they were to each other
assistants." [Qur'an: 17:88]

something like the Qur’an they will never be able to do so. Muslims are
mesmerised by the Qur’an and believe the Qur’an is full of beauty, perfection
and eloquence.
