Source : / 4 Dec 2013


As-salamu ‘alaykum. In a masjid, we quite often have carpets that have musallas to demarcate an individual’s prayer space in the carpet design itself. Can this ‘musalla’ be considered as a sutra or is it still recommended to place something in front of one? Wasalam.

Marrying One With Who Suckled Less than Five Times?

Source : / 09 Nov 2013


 Assalam o Alicum, I would like to ask the imam sahib a question about the rule of breastfeeding which makes a person a mehram. My first cousin and I would like to get married but the issue is that he was breastfed by my mother, who is his aunt. I have read numerous views on this issue. Some scholars believe that one suckling is enough to make a person mehram and others believe that the suckling or breastfeeding session should be five or more times within the first two years of a childs life to make him a mehram. Since he was only fed once by my mother, can we get married? I would truly appreciate if you can share your findings with me on this issue.

Is eating insects lawful?

Source : / 3 Oct 2013


I have a question about the permissibility of eating insects. Recently, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United States, has come out with a report which states that there are several insects which are nutritious and can be eaten. It says edible insects can fight malnutrition. They have, for example made edible biscuits from termites, etc. What is the Islamic ruling on this? Which ones are halal? Which ones are makruh? Which ones are haram?

Can Muslims Attend the Funerals of Non Muslims?

By Sidi Ml. Abdullah Muhammad al-Marbuqi al-Shafi‘i / 31 Aug 2013


Assalaamu ‘alaykum. Alhamdulillah we see that people from different religions and cultures are entering islam, some of them still maintaining strong family ties with their non-muslim relatives inspite of it. Coming to the question, is it permissible to go to non-muslim families’ funerals? If so, what part can be played in the execution of the funeral? I think also that some of the main concerns of the reverts are that if they don’t attend the funeral, the family feels offended.

As salaamu alaikum,

What is the view according to the Shafi’i madhhab about having an aqeeqah for a child, but it is past the regular time of an aqeeqah, i.e., the 7th, 14th, or 21st day? Can a Muslim still have one for his children, and should he still do it?
