    I am an African muslim woman and I wear hijab. My question is,
    it is haram to make my own hair with sisterlocks? The reason why I ask this, is that if i have a sisterlocks in my hair, I can not comb my hair, but I wil still wear my hijab.
    Please i would like to know if is haram if you don’t comb my hair?
    Jazakaalahu Ghairan.
    May Allah Swt bless you Ameen.

    • Salaam alaikum wa rahmatulahi wa barakatuhu sheikh,

      I have a question from someone that I know, who is interested in Islam.
      He wonders why Allah subhana wa ta3ala has favoured the bani israel above other tribes.
      I have read the whole translation and tafsir of surah al-baqarah, and
      this question is mentioned in surah al baqarah in ayah 47 and ayah 122.
      In the time of bani israel there were also other tribes. So that’s why he is asking this question.
      I hope you can help me with this question, because I would really like to know the answer myself.
      Islam is absolute interesting, elhmdoulilah.

      Jazakalahu ghairan, Ameen.
      Salaam alaikum wa rahmatulahi wa barakatuhu.

    • Why would you want to anger Allah swt, and be led astray from the truth? SubhanAllah! Fear Allah swt, and do not wrong your soul. Following Hinduism, means accepting and following shirk – major shirk. Shirk is a major sin which Allah swt does not accept. The Quran is very clear:

      “Then do not set up rivals unto Allaah (in worship) while you know (that He Alone has the right to be worshipped)”

      [al-Baqarah 2:22]

      Also:

      “And they set up rivals to Allaah, to mislead (men) from His path! Say: ‘Enjoy (your brief life)! But certainly, your destination is the (Hell) Fire!’”

      [Ibraaheem 14:30]

      Also:

      “Verily, Allaah forgives not that partners should be set up with Him (in worship), but He forgives except that (anything else) to whom He wills; and whoever sets up partners with Allaah in worship, he has indeed invented a tremendous sin”

      [al-Nisa’ 4:48]

      Also:

      “Verily, whosoever sets up partners (in worship) with Allaah, then Allaah has forbidden Paradise to him, and the Fire will be his abode. And for the Zaalimoon (polytheists and wrongdoers) there are no helpers”

      [al-Maa’idah 5:72]

      As you can see, the Quran al Kareem is very clear. Make Asftagfar for these thoughts, and turn the the Quran, Sunnah and Allah SunhanAllah wa ta Ta’Ala.

    • Salam, I have heard of a Hadith that spoke about how a salamander blew fire on Ibrahim (pbuh) when the rest of the animals were trying to put the fire out. And based on that hadith and others it is better off to kill them and you get good deeds for that.
      And Allah Knows best

  2. Salam Alaikum,

    I’ve got a very serious question, I’m 20 y/o and I’m going to my 2nd year uni studying engineering all the way in Scotland (fitna is too much there)

    So I was wondering what the Islamic ruling is on:
    Getting a nikkah done.. But the girl can stay at her parents and can continue her education..

    And I can continue my uni until I can become financially stable in sha Allah

    do you think that could work out and islamically is it permissible?

    I couldn’t find any sheikhs like mufti menk etc answering a question like this. The reason I want to do a nikkah is because it will reduce fitna for both of us… But I just can’t seem to convince my parents:(

  4. Assalam a’laikum warahmatulla hi wa barakaatu Respected reader’s!

    May Allah subhaanahutaala’s peace and blessings be upon you for propagating his true message to humanity, may Allah subhaanahutaala accept from you all your efforts in pleasing him.
    Aameen ya rabb al a’alameen

    Respected Sheikh!
    I am seeking your advise on my below mentioned situation, please help me in accordance to sahi rulings of Islam.

    Upon suggestion from my parents I accepted the proposal of a girl,she happens to be the daughter of my father’s best friend! Before we finalised the commitment, both the parties performed Istekhaara and alhamdulillah were more than happy about how the things shaped thereafter. Also I tried to stick to the qualities of a spouse described by Rasool ullah sallallahualaihiwasallam and as per my analysis alhamdulillah all the four qualities mentioned by Rasool ullah sallallahualaihiwasallam are satisfied in this case ! Alhamdulillah!

    Moreover, even before fixing the Marriage date(due in year 1438/2017)…. Istikhaara was performed by both the families.

    Now..For a few days my father is feeling that If I get married to this girl (mentioned above) I will start giving priority to her parents over mine!
    Which is offensive for me at the first place because Allah know’s how much preference I give to my parents in all the aspects of my life. This does not end here! My father has said that he doesn’t want me to get married to this girl or in this family. Now that…..everything is finalised……. My father is saying us(me,my mother, my siblings)that he wants to put an end to this relationship here and that if we(me, my mother, siblings ) want to stick onto the decision of marrying this girl then we must forget about him adding on… He says….. By Doing so we will be disappointing him! ………..
    Allahumma baarik laha My mother is a very kind and humble lady, she’s weeping like anything thinking about the girl and her family….. And trying to explain/convince my father on the same issue …. But my father is reluctant! And won’t listen to anybody……
    My mother, My siblings and me….we all are trying to explain/convince him….but Subhaan Allah…. He won’t listen to anyone of us!

    And when my father disclosed us about his above described thoughts….. My mother had a dream relating to my marriage and when we interpreted the meaning of that dream…. Subhaan Allah the sheikh(he works in Jaliyat dammam) we asked for its interpretation said that….this is a good dream Alhamdulillah and said if their is any problem you people are expecting then sort that out and expedite in getting this couple married!

    Even after the explanation/interpretation of good dream he is ignoring the advise of that sheikh!

    Considering all my above mentioned situations……..please advise me how or what should I do besides praying to Allah subhaanahutaala for changing the thoughts and heart of my father.

    Jazakallah hu ahsan jaza respected sheikh, may Allah subhaanahutaala preserve you and accept from you all your efforts in pleasing him.
    Aameen
    Assalam a’laikum warahmatulla hi wa barakaatu

  5. Salaam brother..
    As a Muslim and follower of Prophet Muhammad (SAW) I will say only this that our Prophets have also gone against their parents and family for the betterment of ummah..Here is the matter of a girl’s life, and her families respect..You should take a stand for the girl..And above all in this all Allah’s wish and his blessings are there in this relationship so please take a stand and marry her..with time Allah will Inshahallah show your father that he was wrong..
