  1. Salam, I had been questioning whether the use of Nicotine Patches would invalidate your fast. For all those who may find this helpful, this is the answer I have gotten through http://www.Sistani.org/ Salam, Will nicotine patches invalidate your fast during Ramadan? In the Name of Allah, the Most High No, they do not invalidate the fast. May Allah grant you success. www.Sistani.org
  2. You're right in the case of Sistani, I asked the question in 2016 Question: Salam, I would like to ask you about the permissibly of hunting for sport. Are we allowed to hunt animals such as bears, lions, elephants for sport? Meaning can we hunt the animal even tho we are not going to eat the meat? Thank You In the Name of God, the Most High لایجوز It is not permissible. May Allah grant you success. www.sistani.org Istifta Section - Office of His Eminence Al-Sayyid Ali Al-Sistani
  3. https://xrpcharts.ripple.com/#/ to keep up with your investment
  4. Mainly for Iran, Iraq, Syria and Saudi Arabia.
  5. Salam, is anyone aware of restrictions in terms of tattoo's when traveling to an Islamic country? If the tattoo's are not visible there shouldn't be any repercussions but can you be denied entry or arrested in an Islamic country for having a visible tattoo?
  6. Actually, more and more website and stores are accepting bitcoin payments (see link) https://99bitcoins.com/who-accepts-bitcoins-payment-companies-stores-take-bitcoins/. When crypto currency first made an appearance with bitcoin, it was mainly used on the dark web as a currency due to the difficulty in tracing back the buyer and seller. Furthermore, you are viewing crypto currency simply through the lens of bitcoin when many such currencies exists. As with stocks, to mitigate such risk you must diversify your portfolio to ensure that if one currency drops the other currency will thrive (example: invest in Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple). With the recent drop of bitcoin, ripple had managed to stay a float (see second link posted https://xrpcharts.ripple.com/#/markets/XRP/USD:rhub8VRN55s94qWKDv6jmDy1pUykJzF3wq?interval=1d&range=6m&type=candlestick (one year or max view, candlestick chart). As with any investment, it's value can drop and be worth nothing (see Enron Scandal). Any risk averse individual should not get into crypto currencies. Holding the currency for a couple of years is actually considered a long term strategy. I do agree with you that some of the crypto's are short term trade strategies based on their volatility, but others with enough research can be held in the long run depending on what they are used for.
  7. Alright, so I messaged grand Ayatollah Sistani via his website the following questions Question: Salam, is it permissible to buy/sell Bitcoins or Cryptocurrency as we do stocks in order to benefit from them financially? Thank You And have received the following response In the Name of God, the Most High سماحة السيد حفظه الله لا يبدي رأياً في أعمال مثل هذه الشركات وكذا في العمل معهم. His Eminence, grand Ayatollah Sistani does not express his opinion in regards to the activities of such companies as well as working with them. May Allah grant you success. www.sistani.org Istifta Section - Office of His Eminence Al-Sayyid Ali Al-Sistani
  8. The investors, if knowledgeable would have a sizable sum in their hardware wallets instead of on the exchange and their money would have been safe. Depends you can also use bitcoins to mitigate risk, recently investors have been investing in crypto currency to hedge against risks in the regular stock exchanges and balance out their portfolio. That way, if the stock exchange crashes, crypto currency prices will rise and vice versa.
  9. Thank you for the reference but I will email his office directly and inquire about the issue as I do not understand Farsi/Arabic (when I get an answer I will post it here). Are you aware of why they would be impermissible?
  10. Where has he mentioned this. Please provide references when you are referring to something being forbidden or not forbidden preferably directly from his website. You are right, it is an asset with no physical value. Stocks have dividends, Bonds have coupons but bitcoins value are solely based on the fact that people believe the price will rise. When people buy more than what can be produced (amount people can mine) & with speculation the price quickly shoots up. It's like the Tulip Mania in 1934.
  11. Canada, I managed to get the artwork done by http://www.arabiccalligrapher.com/
  12. Salam Akhter, Thank you for your response. I have found a calligraphist who has took on the job, but will keep you in mind for future projects if need be!
