First Human on the Earth

First Human on the Earth

20 Dec 2023 Ref-No#: 5621

Aoa,
It is commonly said that Hazrat Adam (AS) was the first human being on this earth and the time when he existed was about 10000 years ago. However, we have seen many archeologists who claims to find bones of humans who existed lacs or million years ago. Please if you could resolve this discrepency.

Answer

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

Wa ‘alaykum us-salāmu wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

Allah says in His glorious book;

اَلَا یَعْلَمُ مَنْ خَلَقَؕ-وَ هُوَ اللَّطِیْفُ الْخَبِیْرُ(67:14)

Does He who created not know, while He is the Subtle, the Acquainted?

Allah the exalted is our creator, the creator of the heaven and earth and of everything in between. And also the Knower.

The Qur’an describes Him, the magnificent as;
“He is the First and the Last, the Evident and the Immanent: and He has full knowledge of all things.”
Allah has the absolute knowledge of everything.

Science on the other hand, is probabilistic in nature and does not explain anything with absolute certainty. Every new data renders previous or existing models redundant, theories change. This is self-evident from the history of science, from the Copernican revolution overturning polemic models of the universe to Einstein’s general relativity overshadowing Newtonian mechanisms. Science is ever-changing.

To project scientific theories onto the Quran and islam is to establish belief on purely probabilistic ground, preventing assertion of the truth with absolute certainty.

So trust your lord and His knowledge while doubt the creations including humans and their knowledge.

Answer

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

Yes, when a divorce is based upon some event/ condition then whenever that condition is found divorce takes effect. This kind of divorce is called conditional divorce.

The laws of divorce are intricate. The wordings, the times and the circumstances are to be considered. Whenever any divorce related issue comes up we advise to consult trusted local, divorce expert knowledgeable muftis or fatwaa centre.

contamination of permissible foods

contamination of permissible foods

20 Dec 2023 Ref-No#: 5623

I live with my family, and my brother eats non zabiha meat. Often he orders pizza and other takeaways with non halal meat. the oil on the containers of these takeaways often get on the tables in the kitchen. There is a rag to clean the table however, my question is do i have to wash every plate before i use it since often my brother does not wash plates properly and remnants of the haram food can be on plates. Also, am I allowed to use sauces, butter etc as often knives are left on the table before being put into the container for the butter, so the butter may be contaminated.

Answer

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

Respected questioner,
We commend you on your conscious for halal. It’s a sign of your iman and taqwa.
May Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala grant your brother His love and obedience.

You must purify any remnants of Haraam on the table, plates etc.

Due to the gravity of the situation as a precautionary measure, if you are doubtful on the purity of any item do not consume it.

Assalamu alaykum,

A madman Muslim was preaching that Hentai was halal. Hentai is drawn and animated pornography. Can you please provide a fatwa so I can clearly show people that Hentai specifically is Haram? People are believing that mirror images have no awrah and that drawings have no awrah, so it is permissible to look at drawn pornography.

Jazakhallahu khayr.

Answer

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

Wa ‘alaykum us-salāmu wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

Dear questioner,
Each and every type of porn is haram. May Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala protect us from the novel fitnas of the end of times.

It was narrated that ‘Abdullah ibn Mas‘ood رضي الله عنه said: The Prophet ﷺ said: “No woman should look at another woman then describe her to her husband so that it is as if he is looking at her.
(Narrated by al-Bukhari)

If simply describing, leads a man to imagine a non-mahram woman, is not permissible, then it is more appropriate that looking at images accompanied by sound, should be forbidden as well. Drawings are more provocative than imagining, it is more appropriate that it should be prohibited.

These pornographic animated cartoons are pure evil that destruct families, erode morals in children, develop a love for sex in their hearts, wipes out modesty and chastity in their hearts. Therefore, any such drawings/ cartoons/ mirror images are not permissible in Islam.

Kaffarah for breaking oath

Kaffarah for breaking oath

17 Dec 2023 Ref-No#: 5624

Assalamu alaikum, im 15 , i break an oath, how should i afford kaffarah if i dont have money, should i collect or something, or fast for 3 days?

Answer

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

Wa ‘alaykum us-salāmu wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.
Dear child,

May Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala bless you with barakah in your rizq and life.

When a person takes an oath upon the name of Allah to do or refrain from a certain act in the future, it is necessary to fulfil that oath. If he does not fulfil the oath, it is compulsory to give Kaffarah (penance) for misusing the name of Allah.
If one cannot feed ten poor people two meals or clothe them for a valid reason, as is in your case, then he may fast for three consecutive days.

Black Stone and Atonement of Sins?

Black Stone and Atonement of Sins?

13 Dec 2023 Ref-No#: 5589

It was narrated from Abdullah bin Ubaid bin Umair that a man said: “O Abu abdur-Rahman, why do I only see you touching these two corners?” He said: “I heard the Messenger of Allah say: ‘Touching them erases sins.’ And I head him say: ‘whoever circumambulates seven times, it is like freeing a slave.'”

Does this mean that Allah made it so that touching it erases sins? Or does the stone itself erase sins?

Would this contradict this hadith?

Sahih al-Bukhari 1597 Narrated Abis bin Rabia:

`Umar came near the Black Stone and kissed it and said “No doubt, I know that you are a stone and can neither benefit anyone nor harm anyone. Had I not seen Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) kissing you I would not have kissed you.”

Please help clear up my question. JazakAllah

Answer

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

Dear child,
May Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala increase your quest for knowledge.
1: Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala erases sins. None has the authority to grant reward or erase sins but Allah.
2: The two ahadith do not contradict one another.
The first hadith informs us of the merits that Allah grants on touching and kissing the black stone, touching the Yemeni corner and of Tawaf (circumbulating ka’aba) while the second one describes the pure and clear beliefs of the companions of the noble prophet ﷺ that none is worthy of worship besides Allah jalla jalaluhu but when he makes something a reason for reward although man may not see any wisdom in it. Muslim are fast to obey their lord.

Dear child seeing your quest for knowledge may we advise you to study under pious trusted knowledgeable teachers. It will increase your knowledge and clear out any doubts you may have; due to many groups active to misguide and put doubts in the Muslim’s minds.
