  1. Hi, I am looking to buy a chilli paste, but it contains a small amount of alcohol. According to ayatollah sistani, small amount of alcohol is permitted in food items, eg 2% Since I will be cooking using this paste, the alcohol content will further decrease, so is it permissible to us this? These are the ingredient list from two different brands Ingredients: Tapioca Syrup, Water, Brown Rice, Red Pepper Powder, Salt, Alcohol (To Preserve Freshness), Soybean, Garlic, Onion Ingredients: Corn syrup, red ppper seasoning, red pepper powder, water, salt, onion, garlic, rice, wheat, sea salt, grain alcohol, soybean, salt, soybean powder, rice, rice flour Ingredients: Starch Syrup, Wheat Flour, Water, Powdered Red Pepper (10%), Salt, Polished Wheat, Ethyl Alcohol, Garlic, Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein (Wheat), Onion
  2. Salam everyone, I am a teenager and I do TikTok videos, I started making some money and since I wasn't old enough to get paid I lied and used my sister ID and age inorder to start getting payed. I made a good amount of money then later on got banned. With that money so far I have only bought a book and then started questioning if my money is halal. Since I lied in order to get the money is that money haram now? or maybe it is haram because some say that TikTok is a haram platform it self? Now if the money is haram what would I do with the remaining amount and what should I do with the book I bought with it? Any answer helps, Thank you.
  3. I have a question, is it haram to do the thing that Christians do when they do the cross on their chest? I have seen a few Shias do it on social media to show that we don't have a problem with christians and stuff but is it haram to do it? If you don't know what I am talking about I am talking its the thing where they touch their left shoulder then their right then their forehead.
  4. It is permissible to eat food from a restaurant in the west that serves HALAL meat but also serves NON-HALAL meat too at the same time? The restaurant has advised that their chefs are mindful of the HALAL and NON-HALAL meat not cross contaminating? Can someone direct me to a page or a marja that can answer this question?
  5. I know a lot of people that cheat on there taxes. Many people justify it as being ok because everyone else does it and its not fair for they save money and the people that are honest get screwed. Could this situation be justified as being ok or what? thanks
  6. I want to adopt a Cat, but some people and my family don't agree with it and don't alow me. They say that Cat is a Haram animal and it will have negative effects in our home. Is this thought correct? I can take care of this animal and complete its every need as I have affection for these creatures and love them.
  7. I recently signed up on a site, where you get paid for doing other people's homework. I've rejected every assignment proposal that has asked for acknowledgement that the student has done it himself. I refrain from attempting tests or quizzes for people as well. Doing homework for people can be considered as help init? Just like your household or your tutor help you (that's my opinion). If anyone knows a proper mushtahid's verdict on the topic, feel free to answer, thank you!
  8. salam alykum wrwb. according to the above verse, we are told not to spy on each other. Now, in these advanced times where it is much easier to spy on the ordinary & make money out of it. is that money made out of spying on the life of someone halal? it is wrong in my head & oppressive, but not so in else's head. what about yours? ws
  9. Why Should We Make Money? Have you ever thought about the concept of earning in Islam? Or what role wealth plays in our lives and why we really need to earn money? To some people, money could be a result of the exchange of value. In other words, what you are doing is of value to someone, and that is why you are paid for it. You might get excited to know the value you are delivering to people is making their lives better; then you will be probably more motivated to enhance your get-rich potential and try to make more and more money! This would be an ideal reason for someone to earn money. However, we all need money to spend for certain reasons, e.g., food, clothing, shelter, etc. What Does Earning in Islam Suggest? Muslims believe wealth is one of the innumerous blessings of Allah that is referred to as ‘Khair’ -meaning goodness- in some verses of the Holy Quran (2:215, 2:180). In another verse, it is mentioned as an attraction of this worldly life (18:46). What’s more, gaining wealth has been given so much importance in the religion of Islam that Prophet Muhammad ((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)) says: “Seeking lawful earnings is compulsory for every Muslim” [1]. Islam also seriously recommends attaining the sustenance provided by God through hard work and striving. It is stated in the Islamic narrations that Allah does not like a person who prays for income while he has quit earning and does not try for it [2]. The holy Quran also says: “That nothing belongs to man except what he strives for, and that he will soon be shown his endeavor, then he will be rewarded for it with the fullest reward” (53:39-41). How Should We Earn Money? Along with the importance Islam attaches to gaining wealth through hard work, it places greater emphasis on making money through lawful (Halal) ways. “Eat of what is lawful and pure in the earth, and do not follow in Satan’s steps” (2:168). Based on this verse, consuming only what is lawful (Halal) and good, and abstaining from unlawful (Haram) things, are among the basic principles of the Islamic lifestyle. Many Islamic narrations advise and praise the acquisition of livelihood through fair means, i.e., NOT through stealing, cheating, betting, etc. Islam actually underscores the importance of productive enterprises that can increase output and generate jobs; this is the reason why earning money through gambling is Haram in this religion. Some Features of a Lawful Income in a Prophetic Tradition: According to Prophet Muhammad ((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)) in order for an income (in trading) to be Halal, one should not fault the product he/she is buying, praise the product he/she is selling, deceive anyone swear to God while trading [3]. The Benefits of Lawful Earning in Islam “Whoever lives on Halal earnings for forty days, God shall enlighten his heart” [4]. Some benefits of earning income through fair means are: Receiving the Protection of God Allah says: “If what you eat is Halal and pure, I will protect you” [5]. Acceptance of Prayer Prophet Muhammad ((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)) says if you want your prayer to be accepted and fulfilled by Allah, make sure your income is Halal and pure [6]. Receiving God’s Glory and Honor on the Day of Judgment [7] Strengthening One’s Faith Getting Allah’s Blessings and Favors (Barakah): Your income sometimes may not seem enough, but if it is gained through Halal ways, it will be blessed by Allah; so it will suffice: “And whoever puts his trust in Allah, He will suffice him” (65:3) The Adverse Effects of Unlawful Earning in Islam “You see many of them actively engaged in sin and aggression, and consuming illicit gains. Surely, evil is what they have been doing” (5:62). Here are a few negative effects that await people who choose the wrong way of earning money (by foul means) either for their greed or deprivation: Their Halal income will be reduced, and they will be deprived of Allah’s blessings (Barakah) [8] Their prayers will not be answered [9]. They will become hard-hearted and cruel [9]. Consumption of Haram will have negative effects on their offspring and descendants [9]. Our sustenance lies with Allah Finally, we should always remember that God is the All-provider (51:58) who has ordained Halal sustenance for all creatures, and the creatures’ efforts to earn their living is placed alongside His will. So, we will definitely reach what is provided for us by Him if we try more patiently, and if we are content with and thankful for what we already have. God has not forgotten any of us; the Holy Quran says: “There is no animal on the earth, but that its sustenance lies with Allah, and He knows its [enduring] abode and its temporary place of lodging. Everything is in a manifest Book” (11:6) Then we had better avoid what Allah has told us is unlawful (Haram) since: “Yet it may be that you dislike something, which is good for you, and it may be that you love something, which is bad for you, and Allah knows, and you do not know” (2:216). Notes: “Never give up striving for lawful livelihood as it reinforces your faith”. Imam Sadiq (عليه السلام) [10] References:
  10. Assalamualaikum. I’m looking to move into an apartment. No roommates, but the kitchen appliances have been used by at least a decade of previous tenants, and I highly doubt they all kept a halal kitchen. How does one purify kitchen appliances (oven, microwave, etc.)? When I googled it, all I could find was people asking if halal-style chicken and rice was microwaveable. Jzk
  11. I am thinking about pursuing a degree in law as it is my first year in college and have seen it is a career fit for me, however when I bring the topic up I am oftentimes bombarded with allegations that it is haram and is not permissible to undertake such a path. @Mahdavist @Hameedeh @Gaius I.

  13. People who eat vegan and vegetarian diets have a lower risk of heart disease and a higher risk of stroke, a major study suggests. They had 10 fewer cases of heart disease and three more strokes per 1,000 people compared with the meat-eaters. The research, published in the British Medical Journal, looked at 48,000 people for up to 18 years. However, it cannot prove whether the effect is down to their diet or some other aspect of their lifestyle. Diet experts said, whatever people's dietary choice, eating a wide range of foods was best for their health. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-49579820 Would you slaughter an animal and eat it?
  14. Sometimes I feel really down and I thought that I could maybe try something to make feel better. I've heard this is popular in Yemen and so I wondered if it is halal to have it.
  15. Salam Everyone, I am a 27 year old and work in a private organization which pays me enough for me to bear the necessary expenses of life. I am about to get married and plan to go for Umrah immediately after it. The following is really troubling me these days. I work as a freelancer, which means that I write Essays, articles, research paper , dissertations for people/ students across the globe. I also sometimes do their Mathematics and Physics homework. I get work from a middle party and paid according to the amount of work i do. I do not obligate any copyrights on my work. They give me the topic, and I work from them. They have my permission to use it as they want. Also sometimes the students ask me to help them with their tests. Either I solve online tests for them or they send me pictures of questions and I send the solutions to them via internet. Since my clients forward the work I do for them by their name (which my clients do, I only solve the questions asked from me), Is the work and income generated from it halal for me? If it is not halal, then what should i do with the decent amount of money that i have saved from it over past 1 year, and the one that I have already spent on myself? I really put a lot of time and effort on this thing to earn what i have. I wanted to bear the expenses of my marriage and umrah from this money.
  16. Assalamu alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu. Which are the etiquette with the Holy Qur'an? Is halal to keep the Qur'an and open it at a random page,or is something not to do?
  17. Assalam alaikum everyone, Just seen this for anyone looking for an excuse to have barbeque food and a cheeky bounce on the bouncy castle in the East London/Essex area... Or for anyone willing to travel 50 miles to watch their sweethearts try and bash a multicoloured unicorn from Home Bargains. I don't know why my community never does anything like this.
  18. Salam respected brothers and sisters, as a Shia Muslim who currently resides in the west there are certain restaurants that provide food that accommodates the regulations in permissibility to consumption. Such restaurants are of other cultures such as Hispanic, Asian, and the list goes on; is it permissible to eat at such restaurants if one consumes only food which is permissible to eat of course; taking into consideration that such restaurants sell alcoholic beverages to those whom desire to consume such intoxicants in bottled or canned form.
  19. Asalamualaykum, I have always (or at least in the past 5 years), refrained from music like rap, sensual songs, and just things with too much beat in them. For the past month or so, I have put haram music aside completely but ever since, I've been in this kind of paranoia and anxiety of what is haram and what is halal. I've read my marja's ruling on music over and over again this past month but I just don't seem to get it completely. My marja' is Seyed Sistani and if someone (familiar with fatwas and/or following Ayatullah Sistani) would please help clarify some questions for me I will really appreciate it and may Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) bless you inshaAllah. The following 2 links are what I am going based off of. One is all the basic rulings on music and the other contains more info from the Q&A. (please take note of what is noted as "compulsory/ obligatory precaution and what is noted as haram/forbidden) https://www.Sistani.org/english/book/46/2071/ https://www.Sistani.org/english/book/46/2072/ Meanwhile I've pretty much stopped listening to all music due to a post on shiachat with a whole long list of supposed hadiths from Imam Sadiq AS about music and they were so so strict and harsh that I've just been terrified of all types of music and I just feel very confused inside. It just doesn't make much sense that music is as great as a sin as murder, or any other of the greatest sins. I'd like to know whether these hadiths are even authentic? Is it just an exaggeration caused by translation errors? The hadiths are also found here: https://www.al-Islam.org/greater-sins-volume-1-ayatullah-Sayyid-abdul-husayn-dastghaib-shirazi/fifteenth-greater-sin-music I'm asking because some of these hadiths are not compatible with what Seyed Sistani is saying. The hadiths seem to say music, in totality, and anything close to it is completely haram and punishable,but Sistani seems to distinguish between haram and permissible music. and even says that haram music " does not mean that the music or the song’s tune amuses the heart or changes the mental state because there is nothing wrong in it. " I don't think I should doubt that my marja' has already read an is knowledgable of the hadiths of the Imams (pbu them). However, I'm still struggling with trying to understand what he means when saying " the music or the song that is suitable for entertainment and amusement gatherings". Does that mean dance party music? could someone please give examples of halal music or answer my questions below based on Seyed Sistani's rulings? To further clarify what the said phrase means: does "entertainment and amusement gatherings" mean two criteria? Number 1: entertainment and Number 2: amusement gatherings? or is "entertainment and amusement" used as a single description of that gathering? If someone knew the Farsi version maybe that would help because translations sometimes make it harder to understand. My more specfic questions are: 1. Is ney (reed flute) music halal? The ney I was told was halal before but I don't know now because of this: "The Messenger of Allãh ((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم).) said, “And the person with the [sin of] singing (al-ghinã’) will be raised [on the day of resurrection] blind, deaf and dumb. The person with [the sin of] adultery, of wood-wind, and of drum will also be raised in the same way.” Is ney a woodwind instrument? It is rarely used in any type of " entertainment and amusement gatherings" but rather gatherings of religious poets and such. The ney has such a beautiful and simple sound that is just something I always listened to that made me remember and become presently conscious Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) and the purpose of our existence on Earth. Either way, In short, I just find it hard to think that it is haram. Is it? I feel like based of Sistani's description it is allowed but those hadiths supposedly from Imam Sadiq AS is what throws me off. 2. Is traditional (sonnati) persian music halal? (For example Shahram nazeri or shajarian?) Based on Seyed Sistani's description of what is and isn't ghina. Can you give me examples of other singing which would not be ghina? 3. I am a writer and I write fantasy and fiction. I have always enjoyed listening to what is called "epic music" while I write or even just for workout. Epic music is not commonly listened to by a large audience because it's basically the dramatic music used in movie backgrounds. Is that music considered as music used in " entertainment and amusement gatherings"? 4. Finally, would classical music be allowed? I know this post is quite lengthy but I believe it could help clarify things for many people inshaAllah. If I do not receive logical and descent answers here I will ask on Ayatullah Sistani's website and post the answer here inshaAllah in case it might be helpful for anyone else. May Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) guide us towards the right path and make it easy for us to obey and satisfy Him. Ameen.
  20. Salam, I know many Muslim landlord (in the West). Their apartments are typically non-smoking and no pets, and they will ask you about your employment when you contact them (like every other non-Muslim lanlord). According to the Fair Housing Acts this is seemingly the maximum you can get away with before it falls under discrimination. That being said, people clearly violate these rules all the time (e.g. Chinese buildings). What confuses me is the following... Presumably these Muslim landlord are renting out their apartments to boyfriend/girlfriend couples... or else they wouldn't be able to survive in the rental market. One would assume that non-married couples are engaging in Zina. Regardless, it is free-mixing nonetheless. Furthermore, they likely rent out their apartments to gay couples, who are likely engaging in Sodomy, or lesbian intercourse. What does Islam say about this (from a Fiqh perspective)? Should Muslim landlord be able to discriminate in order to have NOT provided the tools necessary to perform immoral sex acts (I.e. housing)? OR Should Muslim landlord be forbidden from discriminating in regards to housing (since shelter is considered basic human right in the religion of Islam? Does it depend on how many listings are available in order for it to be considered reasonable or unreasonable (If many apartments are available, then you could argue that it's not really denying housing, but rather it's deferring housing? OR should Muslim landlord simply assume the best in their tenants, so that a self-proclaimed gay couple is really just two straight dudes hanging out? This question brings up more questions than it answers. Our traditions condemn living alone, as this is a huge gateway to commiting sin... so would it also be wrong to house any non-straight non-married couple? Another question to add on could be regarding transgenders and whether or not they are the sex that they say they are (when considering this question), and whether or not you should refer to them by their preferred pronouns, shake their hands (which sex are they really?) etc... Lastly, breaking the law is Haram in Islam. Discrimination based on sexual orientation, gender, marital status and/or relationship status is ILLEGAL in most western countries, such as Canada. But is it also Haram to break a law that you cannot easily prove as violated in order to follow God's law more closely? Anyways, for the sake of this question, we will assume that this discrimination is legal... despite it being absolutely illegal. TL;Dr...: My main question is the following: Is denying housing to straight non-married couples, and gay couples HARAM or HALAL?
  21. O alimento permitido dos 'ahlil kitab' é arroz feijão verduras e etc. Nao carne tipo frango boi vaca ovelha e etc. Cada líder (marja) sayed fadullah Sistani Khamenei tem sua opinião sobre se o abate pode ser feito somente por muçulmanos ou não. Existe uma precaução maior pelo qual se segue. A regra básica é o animal deve ser abatido islamicamente (na direção da meca, falar 'bismilah' e cortar as 4 veias do animal.
  22. Im planning on eating in a place where they sell crabs and lobsters as well, so I was just wondering if they were najis in case a worker touches it
  23. For those who don't know, it is essentially an emulator which runs games from the playstation 2 online and is completely free in that you do not pay for the games, they are already violable to download online. It feels kinda cheap and scummy to do so as you haven't paid for it. Does it count as piracy and if so does that mean stealing? Is it haram?
  24. Assalamailakium brothers and sisters. I wanted to ask a question regarding a restaurant. There is a restaurant near my area that is owned by Arab Christians, but the meat, according to them, is Zabihah Halal. My marja is Ayatollah Sistani, and I know that according to him, one can eat the food of an Ahle Kitab, but my question is how about if the halal meat is handled by Ahle Kitab. The restaurant in question even has two halal signs, one in Arabic and one in english. Is it haram to eat their or not?
  25. Is watching romantic movies or shows haram? What if one doesn't look at "those" scenes? If there's sources like from Sayid Sistani, that would be awesome.
