Dear Shaikh, I have two questions and would appreciate if you can answer both of them,1. Is it permissible for a muslim country to use espionage to get weapons technologies from the disbelievers, for example, as it is well known that Pakistan has used espionage against western countries through its intelligence to get nuclear secrets and missile related technologies?2. Can you please tell me how is booty collected in in Islam?Is it taken from the civilians also which are conquered? I know one-fifth is for Allah and his messenger, but does the Amir(ruler) also get a share from it?
Hello, Islam prohibits us from committing suicide like other religions. But I cannot find any verses making direct mention of suicide in Qur?an. Indeed, I can find some verses considered to touch on suicide-banning such as 2:195, 3:145 and 4:29, however I?m wondering if these ones are within direct references though these may be linked to suicide-banning. Could you possibly shed light on this point citing Qur?anic verses making direct mention of suicide banning? Thank you in advance.
Dear Sheikh, as-salamu `alaykum wa rahmatu Allah wa barakatuh. Could you please shed light on the position of work in Islam? Also, I appreciate if you clarify the term "Islamic activism". Jazakum Allah khayran.
Respected scholars, as-salamu `alaykum. Can a Muslim family take a Hindu maid to work in their house or invite Hindu, Sikh,or Buddhist person to their house? My mother-in-law says that “she won’t allow any Hindu to come in to the house.” She fears and believes that they will touch places and it will make it unclean, I suppose. Is her point of view the correct one? My husband also started thinking the same thing. Is this right or justified, when Islam calls us to be friendly to everybody? How one can call people to Islam as we all shall try to do, if we start giving the prerogatives to some and be disgusting or ignore the others? What I can do to make them feel friendly towards the unbelievers. Thank you very much.
As-salamu `alaykum. What is the Islamic view on planting landmines? Is there any difference in the Islamic ruling concerning planting landmines in times of war and peace, keeping in mind the disastrous consequences of landmines on the military and civilians?
Assalaam alaykum our scholars, as Allah says in the Holy Quran that 'ask those who know if you do not know' this aayaat has given me a courage to ask as this will help improving my islamic way of living as a muslim. My question is what does islam say about child spacing especially when we consider that we still have to make love with our wives. we heard about withdrawing during ejaculation, this way it seems to help to prevent the wife from conceiving but the problem is the wives are not satisfied due to the fact that we do not ejacukate in side them. What should we do then islamically to satisfy them by ejaculating in side them, at same time preventing them from conceiving?
