Backbiting and Slander

By C. Mofty / 2 May 2013 

Islam is a religion of peace, love and compassion which teaches us that we should respect the honor, reputation and privacy of others. Lies, suspicion, backbiting, slander, and gossip are destructive, major sins that go against what Islam stands for and sow enmity and discord among Muslims.  They cause hostilities between family members, neighbors, and friends.  Therefore, Islam clearly defines and prohibits them in the severest of terms.

Unhealthy practices, some even prohibited in Islam, are slowly creeping into our society; and it will take more awareness, education, and open dialogue to stay alert and stop these problems in their tracks before they spread.

Tattooing is viewed in the west as a harmless form of body art, an aesthetic procedure, a normal part of growing up for most adolescents.

Recently, tattooing has started appearing in Arab and Muslim societies as well. Apparently, it is extremely difficult but not impossible to find a place to get a tattoo done here in Saudi Arabia.

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

All praise and thanks are due to Allah, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger.

Dear brother in Islam, we would like to thank you for the great confidence you place in us, and we implore Allah Almighty to help us serve His cause and render our work for His Sake.

As regards your question we'd like to cite for you the words of the eminent Muslim scholar, Sheik Yusuf Al-Qaradawi, in his well-known book, The Lawful and the Prohibited in Islam. He states: "Beautification and elegance are not merely permitted but are required by Islam, and in general it repudiates any attempts to prohibit them. Almighty Allah says, "Say: Who has forbidden the adornment of Allah which He has brought forth for His servants, and the good things of His providing?" (Al-A`raf: 32)

How a Prohibition on Interest (Riba) Would Affect Trade Cycles and Entrepreneurship

Islam is extremely strict in its prohibition of interest (Riba.) Riba is an unfair, unearned, and undeserved income which is usually used to denote business transactions like money lending or credit. Muslims argue that Riba is at the heart of most of the ills of the modern economic system. 

Islamic economics proposes that instead of interest, a more fair approach would involve profit sharing; that is, in which both parties gain a proportional income depending on the investment or business in question.
