The responses come from Shaykh Muhammad Saalih al Munajid.
Q: What is the way of solving the Palestinian issue which becomes more complicated each day?
A: A solution cannot be reached in this matter unless it is regarded as an Islamic issue and the Muslims cooperate to find a solution, and wage an Islamic jihad against the Jews, until the land is given back to its people and the Jewish immigrants go back to the countries from which they came, and the original Jewish inhabitants stay in their towns under Islamic rule, not communist or secular rule. (Italics mine.)
Q: If a woman uses a massager on her vagina, is this considered masturbation. What is the ruling concerning using this if the woman is under alot of stress and sees good-looking men at work but her husband is living in another country?
A: You have to keep away from everything that leads to a provocation of desire, for these means will no doubt ultimately lead you to fall into doing the secret habit, which is haraam. What counts is doing that which leads to a climax, whether that is done directly by the hand or by using a machine whose vibrations lead to a climax. So strive against yourself (jihaad al-nafs) and do not do that. You must keep away from and avoid places where you may mix with men, because that is haraam according to shareeah, because the Shaytaan will make you commit evil actions so long as you meet with them every day, especially since your husband is absent.
Q: I want to become Muslim, but my family gather to celebrate Christmas, and I want to go and greet them. This is not with the intention of celebrating or joining in, but simply to make the most of the opportunity of my relatives getting together. Is this allowed?
A: No, it is not permitted. If Allaah blesses her with Islam, then the first thing she must do is to distance herself from her former religion and its festivals.
And Allaah knows best.
Q: I work in the army of a non-Muslim state, and there are wars between them and the Muslims. What is the ruling if they send me with a division of this army to wage war against the Muslims?
A: We want to emphasize to you the necessity of finding other employment and of leaving service in the army of the kaafirs, because that implies helping them, strengthening them and increasing the numbers of their fighters and supporters unless your work can bring some benefits to the Muslims, such as giving information and secrets of the kaafirs to the Muslims so as to help the Muslims (Italics mine.)
Q: Is it permissible to say Jazaak Allaahu khayran (may Allaah reward you with good) to a non-Muslim if he does us a favour or helps us in some way?
A: It is not permissible to pray for good for a kaafir, because he does not deserve it.
Q: Why is it forbidden to sleep on ones belly?
A: The reason for this is that it was forbidden by the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), who left no good thing but he told us about it and left no evil thing but he warned us against it.
Well, that settles it.
These morons can't even fart or even figure out if they have farted without help.
Because your tentmate might be Mohammed Atta.
Mohammed said, "Don't breath into your drinking utensil." Vol. 1:156
Awwwww, little Islamic kids aren't allowed to have fun blowing bubbles into their glass through the drinking straw.
Yeah, but at least his Wudhu is intact. I'm sure that comes as a great relief to this flatulent Einstein.
This explains why I haven't heard a single American Moslem denounce the 9/11 terrorists. It is one thing to lie in order to deceive the Kafir, but it is another thing to send your heroic martyrs to hell.
Hey I like that. I guess I sent a lot of Muslims to hell where they belong, cool!
He's obviously been around these guys. I'll take his word for it and keep them from breathing around my drinking vessel
What is the Islamic ruling on greeting and kissing ones wifes mother on her cheek or neck? Please quote evidence from the Quraan and Sunnah.
Praise be to Allaah.
It is permissible for her to uncover her face, and there is no scholarly dispute on this point. But with regard to kissing her, it is not permissible to kiss her on the mouth because there is the danger that this may provoke desire. But if he kisses her on the head or forehead out of respect towards her when returning from travel etc., and there is no risk of that provoking desire, then it is o.k. And Allaah knows best.
These guys are tough. And I thought drinking the camel urine was bad.
Don't forget about the slavery and also the rape aspects.
Islam, the "religion/cult" that take the ten commandments and changes the words "Thou shalt not" and changed them to "Thou shall".
Why do I suspect that there is a linguistic relationship between Arabic and Afrikaans somewhere ?
When is it permissible to rape the infidels and their horses ?
When can we dip our hands in the blood of our enemies and show them to the TV cameras ?
What happens if a suicide bomber is killed by a pork encrusted bullet ?
Where do I go to sign up for the Kaafir Army?
Can a person be considered as a shaheed (martyr) if he dies whilst on a business trip by sea?What about a disease of the lower intestine? Inquiring minds want to know.
Praise be to Allaah.
Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyah (may Allaah have mercy on him) was asked about a man who traveled by sea for the purpose of trade, and he was drowned did he die as a shaheed? He replied, yes, he died as a shaheed, so long as he was not travelling for sinful purposes. For it was narrated in a saheeh report that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: The one who drowns is a shaheed, the one who dies of a stomach disease is a shaheed, the one who is burnt to death is a shaheed, the one who dies of the plague is a shaheed, the woman who dies giving birth is a shaheed, and the one who is crushed by a collapsing building is a shaheed. And people killed in other ways were also mentioned.
Travelling by sea for the purpose of trade is permissible, if one thinks it is most likely to be safe. If it is not safe then he should not travel for the purpose of trade; if he did that [i.e., traveled when it was not safe to do so], then he has contributed to his own death, and in such a case we cannot say that he was a shaheed. And Allaah knows best.
