Dear scholars, as-Salamu `alaykum. My University holds annual mixed summer camps. I was there last summer but never committed anything violating the dictates of modesty. My contacts were limited to males only. Even my contacts with the female students were all within the framework of morality and politeness. I know that there was some improper relations, but I kept far remote from them. now, I want to attend this year’s camp. Am I allowed to go there? Also, what does the Shari`ah say about those girls who attend such camps? Can they go without a mahram, especially as such camps are supervised by university professors? Jazakum Allah khayran.

Salaam alaikoem,Dear scholars, please can you tell me if a professional soccer player (football) can eat on the day he must play a match. Some people say that this counts on the exception of hard work. This soccerplayer earns his money with playing this sport. Some player eat on the matchday, but on the other days when there are trainings they fast. This question is important because hundreds of professional soccer players en other sportsmen in Europe have to deal with this dilemma. For so far there is no fatwa on this matter. Jazak Allah Khairan for your time. Salaam alaikoem.
