Sheikh Muhammad Nur Abdullah, President of the ISNA (Islamic Society of North America) and member of the Fiqh Council of North America, states: “Using microwave ovens has not been scientifically proven to be harmful, otherwise they would have to put a notification of that. But if it is a bit harmful and its benefit outweighs the harms, it is still allowed. We should also know that if something is declared “allowed” it means it is optional, so we can discontinue using it with no problem.”
