Q&A: Bridegroom Entering the Women’s Wedding Hall

Questions: Question by Sameh Rayhan Abu Myassara Assalamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullah wa Barakatuh, is there something forbidden about the bridegroom informing the women that he will enter to see his bride in the wedding, so all the women sit down and cover themselves and only his female Maharem will stay around him in order to congratulate him, whilst the foreign women have covered up and sat in their seats and no mixing has occurred between them and the bridegroom when he entered the function hall?

Question by  Khilafah wa’ad Allah, Is it allowed for the bridegroom to sit next to his bride in order to adorn her with jewelry knowing that all of the women are covered and the majority of them are from the Maharem and then he leaves? Question by Sofyan Qasrawi Assalamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullah wa Barakatuh, our esteemed Sheikh I have a question which is: If the wedding time for the Maharem is set and another time is set for the non-Maharem, is it allowe

Speech Delivered at Hizb ut Tahrir Wilayah Lebanon’s Demonstration on Ash-Sham

الَّذِينَ قَالَ لَهُمُ النَّاسُ إِنَّ النَّاسَ قَدْ جَمَعُوا لَكُمْ فَاخْشَوْهُمْ فَزَادَهُمْ إِيمَانًا وَقَالُوا حَسْبُنَا اللَّـهُ وَنِعْمَ الْوَكِيلُ فَانقَلَبُوا بِنِعْمَةٍ مِّنَ اللَّـهِ وَفَضْلٍ لَّمْ يَمْسَسْهُمْ سُوءٌ وَاتَّبَعُوا رِضْوَانَ اللَّـهِ وَاللَّـهُ ذُو فَضْلٍ عَظِيمٍ  إِنَّمَا ذَٰلِكُمُ الشَّيْطَانُ يُخَوِّفُ أَوْلِيَاءَهُ فَلَا تَخَافُوهُمْ وَخَافُونِ إِن كُنتُم مُّؤْمِنِينَ “Those to whom hypocrites said, “Indeed, the people have gathered against you, so fear them.” But it [merely] increased them in faith, and they said, “Sufficient for us is Allah, and [He is] the best Disposer of affairs.”   So they returned with favour from Allah and bounty, no harm having touched them. And they pursued the pleasure of Allah, and Allah is the possessor of great bounty.   That is only Satan who frightens [you] of his supporters. So fear them not, but fear Me, if you are [indeed] believers” (Aali ‘Imraan: 173-175) Here are the evil forces of the entire world gathered up

Q&A: Is it Permissible for a Menstruating Woman to Read Qur’an from the Internet or a Mobile Phone?

Question: Assalaamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah Wa Barakatuhu, I would like to inquire about the Shariah rule because I am confused…  Is it permissible for the menstruating woman to read Quran from the internet or a mobile phone? I would like an answer. Wa Salaamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah From  Raheeq Em Yousif Answer: Wa Alaikum us Salaam Wa Rahmatullah Wa Barakaatuhu, To answer the question three points must be made clear: Reciting of the Quran orally i.e. not from the Mushaf, the touching of the Mushaf and reading Quran from it, and the carrying of laptops or mobile phones that contain Quran application and reading from it. 1 –  As for the rule of reciting Quran orally by the menstruating woman , it is an issue of dispute between scholars, some say it is forbidden while others allow it, and my outweighed opinion on the issue is that the oral recitation of the Quran by the menstruating woman is forbidden. Extracted by Al-Hakim in Al-Mustadrak on the authority of Sulaim

Q&A: The Wrong Judgment in “Khilaf Al Awla”

Question: As-Salaam Alaikum Is the Prophet’s ﷺ wrongful judgment over what constitutes priorities in small matters ( Khilaf Al Awla ) considered as Ijtihad or is it another matter? Please clarify this. May Allah bless you and guide you in the straight path granting you victory. From Numan Abo Ali Answer: Wa Alaikum us Salaam Wa Rahmatullah Wa Barakaatuhu You may be referring to what is mentioned in the book  al-Shakhsiyya al-Islamiyya  Vol.1.  that ‘It is not proper to describe the Messenger ﷺ as a Mujtahid but it is allowed for him to make a wrongful judgment over what constitutes priorities in small matters (khilaf  Al Awla)’, and this is what prompted you to ask about the difference between Ijtihad and  Khilaf Al Awla . To answer this, it is vital to know the reality of Ijtihad and the reality of Khilaf Al Awla. First: Linguistically,  ijtihad  it means “exerting utmost effort” ( istifragh al-wus`i ) to realise and obtain something leading to inconvenience

Q&A: What is Bid’a and what is its Punishment?

Question: Assalaamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah Wa Barakaatuhu, I request from the Ameer to answer my question as it is very important. What is Bid’a and what is its punishment? And what is the difference between Bid’a and “one who initiates a good practice”? And is the inaction of the Prophet ﷺ in a matter considered as a Shariah evidence that is valid and can be referred to? We regularly discuss with some groups and they describe some matters as Bid’ah which are not performed by the Prophet ﷺ. This question is very important, Barak Allah in you. Please clarify this and provide examples in the answer to help us in getting a better understanding. From Radwan Yusuf Answer: Wa Alaikum Assalaam Wa Rahmatullah Wa Barakaatuhu, We previously issued an answer to the question regarding the subject of Bid’a on 18/9/2009, and we published an answer to a question of one of the brothers on Facebook regarding Bid’a on 6/6/2015 that you can refer to, but I will summarize for you that is
