Q&A: What is the Difference between Khair and Shar, and Husn and Qubh?

Question:                                                                As-Salaam Alaikum Sheikh, may Allah grant you a long life to witness the victory, InshaAllah. I have a question about the difference between Khair (good) and Shar (evil), and Husn (pretty) and Qubh (ugly)? Because when the topic is raised among the brothers, varying answers are given on the subject, please explain to us the difference between the two subjects, May Allah bless you. From Abu Qusay Answer : Wa Alaikum As-Salaam Wa Rahmatullah Wa Barakatuhu A. Husn (pretty) and Qubh (ugly), and Khair (good) and Shar (evil) are terminologies used by the scholars of jurisprudence and the understanding of their meanings would be according to how they defined and used them, and not as in their stated meaning in the language. I.e. for you to know the meaning and the difference between them, you must refer to the scholars of Jurisprudence not the scholars of the language, do not open the dictionary and loo

It’s Time to See Who is Behind the Chaos and Terror

Our soils have turned to a showdown arena for the colonial interests of the US and Western states whom Turkey regards as its allies. Behind any chaos, slaughter and terror on whatever soil on this earth, there are these blood-sucking capitalist countries. These countries wage their colonial wars between each other through the hands of the subcontractor groups they support in order to maintain their economic and political interests in the Muslim lands. And those who die are always the Muslims and innocent civilians. In spite of all these facts, Turkey still continues its cooperation and friendship with the colonial powers. We as Hizb ut Tahrir / Wilayah Turkey have shared this fact with the public after every conducted atrocious act, and warned politicians and leaders. After the bomb attack in Suruç on July 20, 2105, “we said that  “The True Perpetrators of the Blast in Suruç are the Colonialist Western Powers Who Drown the World in Oppression, Blood and Tears” , and we expressed t

Q&A: Can Private Property become Public Property?

Question: Assalaamu Alaikum our honourable Sheikh, I would like to ask you a question regarding public ownership.  Can a private ownership transfer to a public ownership in accordance to the Shariah rules, like transferring water springs from a private ownership into public property if that is needed for the public good? And if the public no longer needs it, does it revert as private property? Similar to oil wells when they are depleted, can they become a private property? Thank you, and May Allah help you and make your foothold strong, Wa Assalaamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah Wa Barakatuhu From Nadir Az-Za’tari Answer: Wa Alaikum us Salaam Wa Rahmatullah Wa Barakaatuhu, If any type of public ownership was as a result of a divine reason (‘ illah ), then the rule will follow this divine reason, whether it exists or in its absence. If the  ‘illah  is present then that public ownership will remain, but if it was absent, then it will be permitted to privately own that type of

Attempts of Intimidation Only Makes Muslims Stand Firm

On Monday the 7th of March, it was “breaking news” that the city council of Aarhus (second largest city of Denmark), decided to withdraw the approval and support of a large central mosque. A project that has been on the way for 17 years. The reason was a several-episode “documentary” that, by use of hidden cameras and moles, “exposed” how imams in different mosques taught in Shariah and gave Islamic advice. Comment: The documentary has caused much disturbance in Denmark, and raised a new debate about Islam and Shariah. Danish politicians have stumbled over each other to come with new measurements to avoid the rise of Islamic awareness among Muslims. Among the proposal have been “exit-programs” as for bikers and gang members. A certification of imams, to ensure that they conform to secular democratic values. More offers for young Muslims who want to run away from home. A strong call to young Muslims to rebel against their parents and Islam and other proposals alike. These pro

Q&A: Blood Money for Accidental Killing

Question: As-Salaam Alaikum, I have a question: in the book,  The Punishment System in Islam , it states that the killing is of four types, the fourth type what takes the course of wrongful killing, and it is known as the murder without the will of the perpetrator. If it is carried out without his will then why does he have to pay blood money, knowing that the Hadith says, my Ummah will not be accounted for mistakes? From Hamzeh Shihadeh Answer: Wa Alaikum us Salaam Wa Rahmatullah Wa Barakatuhu, What you are asking about is mentioned in the book,  The Punishment System in Islam , in the following texts: “And killing is in four forms: intentional, and semi intentional and accidental (mistaken) and what takes the course of wrongful killing. The intentional form of killing is clear from the verse: ومن يقتل مؤمناً متعمداً “But whoever kills a believer intentionally” (An-Nisa: 93) The semi-intentional is clear from the narration of Abdullah ibn Amr ibn al-Aas that

Video: A Caliphate Soldier and an American Legend

The US has been openly misleading the public and the international community about the nature of political Islam, specifically the Caliphate. US history has solidified that the U.S. is very familiar with the caliphate state, and America is fully aware of the emerging Caliphate. The US has a lengthy history of good relations, but it chooses to conceal that part of history.

Q&A: Bio-Energy Therapy

Question: As-Salamu Alaikum, I am a student studying nursing at Hebron University, our lecturer, who teaches us, has started taking courses in the field of energy therapy and wants to study it in her Masters. But a colleague of ours has researched the subject and said that it is forbidden in Islam, but the lecturer asked him for the conclusive proof of the prohibition in Islam, because she wants to complete her studies in it, but the student was not able to bring a clear evidence from the Qur’an and Sunnah on this subject, can you please provide me with your opinion in this subject? From Iman Thawabteh Answer: It is not clear from the question what is meant by bio-energy therapy, and it was better for the inquirer to explain the meaning of bio-energy therapy to be able to provide the specific answer to the question However, the introduction of prohibition in the subject makes me suspect that she is not inquiring about the physical tangible energy such as radiation e
