Islam is a Deen of peace and justice. Even in a truly Islamic country, the non-Muslim citizens are given full protection, helped when in need and are permitted to conduct their own religious rites and ceremonies.

It, however, does not mean that if people of other religions are allowed to conduct their religious ceremonies, it is permissible for a Muslim to join them in such celebrations. Islam has a distinct culture and totally shuns anything to do with shirk (idolatory) and the customs of other religions.

Christmas and New Year’s celebrations are Christian and pagan celebrations respectively. The element of shirk is evident. Consider the following:

Daughters in University

Question: I have just finished matric. My parents want me to go to University next year. I have many friends and family who are in University so I know of the fitnahs and sins that are part of campus life. I heard just recently of a girl who we all knew to be pious, that she met a Hindu boy on campus and wishes to marry him. I don’t want to put my imaan on the line by going to University and being exposed to these fitnahs. Please advise me as to how I can explain my concerns to my parents and convince them. Jazaakallah.

Faqeehul Ummah: The Nurturing of Children

Summary of Letter

I have taught my children salaah and Quraan majeed. Thereafter they pursued secular education. I allowed them to acquire more worldly education in the hope that they may progress materially. Now I am concerned as to what answer I will give to Allah Ta‘ala. One son is a Haafiz, but he as well as my other children refuse to listen to me. My heart remains extremely troubled and distressed. At times, I feel that I should leave my home and go away somewhere. What should I now do to save myself from any punishment in the Hereafter for the mistakes I have made in the educating and upbringing of my children?

Faqeehul Ummah: Parent’s Disunity

PrintE-mail

Saturday, 10 September 2016 10:14

Summary of Letter

[The writer apparently complained of differences between his parents and requested advice in this regard, as well as with regard to giving up sin.]

Summary of Reply:

Bismihi Ta‘ala

Respected Brother/Sister:

Assalamu ‘Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakaatuh

I was greatly perturbed to hear about the disunity of your parents. May Allah Ta‘ala grant love and affection in their hearts for one another. It is nevertheless compulsory for you to respect both your parents. Never allow such a situation to occur that in supporting one of your parents you disrespect the other.

Criteria of Success

Saturday, 10 September 2016 10:14

In this world, people are judged by a variety of criteria. The success of a businessman is judged by his bank balance and the success of a professional is judged by the number of degrees he has. Similarly, it is the student who passes his exams attaining a distinction who is generally viewed as a successful student.

In the court of Allah Ta‘ala, however, there is only one criteria for success – TAQWA. Allah Ta‘ala states in the Quraan Majeed, “O mankind! Indeed we have created you from a single man and woman, and we have made you into races and tribes so that you may identify one another. Indeed the noblest of you in the sight of Allah is he who has the most taqwa. Indeed Allah is all Knowing and all Aware.”

Expansion Project

Question:  We have an expansion project for our manufacturing plant but do not have the cash to fund the project. We have been approached by a company who will purchase our future turnover at a profit. The company will look at the at the historical sales and, based on the average turnover, they will purchase the turnover of the next six months for cash – at a profit. For example, if the average monthly turnover is R500 000, they will purchase the turnover of the next six months for R3 million. We will pay back R3.5 million over 4 months, R500 000 being the profit. Is this permissible? Many Muslim businesses are adopting this as it is claimed to be free from interest.
