Asalamu Alaikum, Are there any scholars who answer questions online? I don't mean fiqhi questions, but any question related to Islam e.g. philosophy, theology, ethics etc etc In the 21st century I think we have to understand that many people just don't go to their local moulana for whatever reason. Many people would rather ask questions online and we should try and make this available. So are there any scholars who do this? If so, can I have their emails or websites please. And if not, I urge anyone who knows a scholar to try and make this happen. Thanks :)
Salam alaikum, Thank you for your kind and helpful replies. Yes I asked her and her parents are also agnostic. I do taqleed of sistani I can totally see your point Maalik Ashtar. However I would not do this if this was simply a matter of desire and constant pick and choose. Being young and single in the west it is difficult to practise Islam properly because of lustful distractions and slowly affects all parts of my faith. (There is a reason marriage completes half of our faith, because it does affect us in every way). So if a marja does allow it with a non believer it would strongly indicate to me he may be aware of such circumstances and hence possibly very knowledgeable. I would then have to do further research before I could conclude if he is MORE knowledgeable. I never said I would do taqleed of him, just interested to find more. I appreciate your advice and the verse. Not me, that's a good point.
Asalamu alaikum I have a question regarding mutah with a non believer. I am currently unable to get married permanently and have found a girl willing to do mut'ah with me. Unfortunately this girl is an agnostic. I understand most scholars (if not all?) Say you are only allowed to do mut'ah with a muslim or girl from ahlul kitab. Are there any marjas that say it is allowed with a non-believer? I live in England. It is very difficult to find a muslim girl who would agree to do mutah, so that rules them out. Out of the rest of the population here in England the vast majority of young people (excluding hindus etc) are all atheists or agnostics (if I was to guess maybe 90%+!!). Even if they did believe in god in some form, they are rarely from ahlul kitab. This makes finding a girl for mut'ah extremely difficult. This girl I know is a very nice girl and not a prostitute. I heard there is a marja who says it is allowed with prostitute even though most say it isn't, hence I was wondering if there are any marjas who allow it with a non believer given the circumstances. Salam
