from al-Qawanin al-Fiqhiyyah

Ibn Juzayy al-Kalbi

translated by Abdassamad Clarke

Concerning it there are six issues:

First section on the judgement on making a hubus which is that it is permissible according to the two Imams and others and contrary to Abu Hanifah, but his pupil Abu Yusuf recanted that when Malik exchanged views with him and [Malik] proved his case with the Ahbas of the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and g...

We have a Masjid and School on the same property with Articles of Incorporation for both. Does our Masjid and School constitute an Islamic waqf together or collectively or not?

The bases (arkân) of the waqf are four things: the donor (wâqif), the text or gist (sîghah), the donated object (mawqûf), and the beneficiary (mawqûf ‘alayhi). Any Muslim institution possessing these four characteristics, if it fulfills their legal condi...

I want the sheikh to talk even briefly about licenses and their regulations. We see on the internet strange kinds of licenses. Some people allow performing the Prayer before its due time and some people go with the time of Mecca with regard to breaking fasting. We need guidelines for these people even if some of them have excuses.


For example, in some districts here in France `Isha Prayer comes late at some months and hence so...

The worshippers in a certain mosque collected a sum of money to be used in offering food to fasting Muslims in Ramadan and whatever remained could be used to for anything the mosque needed. Is it permissible for the Imam of the mosque to spend this sum on building some rooms without the knowledge of the people in the mosque? When he was asked about the money, he said he had to spend it somewhere and will return it some day

The...

I was asked to write on this subject, which is of extreme importance as it constitutes a significant means to preserve the identity of Muslims in the West and to secure suitable conditions so that they can practice the rites of their religion.

Introduction

This brief paper on endowment in the West aims to manifest the importance of endowment in Western countries.

Therefore, we shall talk about Muslim minorities, the aim of this p...

Your eminence Sheikh! We are students who were sent to study in a Western country. We are responsible for an Islamic society in the university where we study. A number of the Muslims in the city (who are already few) have clothes and other things to donate. But there is no Muslim in our town who deserves such donations. We called a number of other Islamic societies in other towns but they could not come to us. From previous ex...

I received an offer to work as a software documentalist and editor at a nongovernmental organization (NGO) whose purpose is to promote democracy and international cooperation, and eliminate repression and poverty worldwide. Is it permissible for me to work for such an NGO bearing in mind that I will not promote its ideologies?

All praise is to Allah, and peace and prayers be upon the Messenger of Allah.


It is alright to work fo...

For three years I have worked in tourism. Obviously, this field involves grave doubts concerning prohibited matters. I want to quit the job but I can not find another one. What is the ruling of the money I earned from this job after I quit it? May Allah reward you.

All praise is due to Allah. Peace and blessings be upon the Messenger of Allah. In fact, this question lacks details. If the questioner intends by tourism working in...

What is the ruling of a Muslim working in the department of secret investigations for non-Muslims who track Muslims? Such a person claims to have the goal of helping Islam. I hope to provide him with the evidence for this ruling based on the opinions of the early and contemporary scholars. What should we do with this person to guide him to the straight path?

This job cannot be permitted. In fact, if a person works in these inve...

Question:


Asalamo Alikum Ustad, I hope you and your family are well IA.

If you could please provide me an input on this situation: a relative back home had a heart condition which required immediate surgery and he borrowed money to travel to another city/country to complete his operations.
