When A Disbeliever works in A Company Owned by A Musiim

In the name of Allah, peace and prayer of Allah be upon His messenger, amma ba’du

In general, muslims are allowed to employ disbeliever in their company or foundation. There are several indications that support this claim. In his book of sound hadith, Imam al Bukhari wrote in a chapter titlled ,

باب إِذَا وَكَّلَ الْمُسْلِمُ حَرْبِيًّا فِى دَارِ الْحَرْبِ ، أَوْ فِى دَارِ الإِسْلاَمِ، جَازَ

It is allowed for a muslim to be represented by a harb infidel (the part of disbelievers/infidels with the harshest enmity towards Islam–ed) in a harb country, or in a islamic country. (see: Shahih Bukhari, 8/349).

And his opinion regarding law matters is known by every title of the chapter in his book of valid hadith.

Then he mentioned a hadith from Abdurrahman bin Auf –may Allah be pleased with him-, in which he said,

كَاتَبْتُ أُمَيَّةَ بْنَ خَلَفٍ كِتَابًا بِأَنْ يَحْفَظَنِى فِى صَاغِيَتِى بِمَكَّةَ ، وَأَحْفَظَهُ فِى صَاغِيَتِهِ بِالْمَدِينَةِ

I wrote a letter to Muawiya Ibn Khalaf to protect my kins in Mecca, and I’ll protect his kins in Medina. (Narrated by Bukhari no. 2301).

Establishing The Gender of Babies according to Medical and Islamic perspectives

Question:

Sheikh Muhammad Ibn Shalih Al Uthaymeen was asked: How to correlate between the ever-developing medical science as today, when it is able to reveal the sex of babies which are still in their mother’s womb, whether they are boy or girl, and Allah’s verse:

“It is He Who sends down the rain and knows what is in the wombs,” (Chapter Luqman: 34)

Besides, what about the interpretation of some scholars, such as mentioned in the tafseer of Ibn Jarir, from Mujahid, that a man came to ask to the Prophet -peace and prayer of Allah be upon him- about what will his wife give birth to. Then Allah revealed the previous verse – as narrated by Qatada -. What is the specificity that is contained in the generality of Allah’s verse. “What is in the wombs”?

Answer:

Before we discuss about this matter, I’d like to explain that it is absolutely impossible for a contradiction to happen between the Qur’an and phenomena that we see today.

Wearing a Watch, right or left hand?

Wearing a Watch

How to wear a watch according to Islamic teaching?

In the name of Allah, peace and prayer of Allan be upon His messenger, amma ba’du,

Which is the more appropriate according to sunnah, to wear a watch on the right hand, or on the left hand?

Below is the answer provided by Dr. Sa’d al Khatslan – member of the Council of Grand Scholars of Saudi Arabia –

الذي يظهر أن الساعة كالخاتم فقد يلبس للتزين وقد يلبس للانتفاع به في أمور أخرى ، وقد صح عن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم أنه تختم في اليد اليمنى وفي اليد اليسرى ، وقد اختلف العلماء في التوفيق بينها

From what we inferred is that a watch is like ring, which is sometimes worn as adornment or because of certain benefit. And there is a sound hadith from the Prophet –peace and prayer of Allah be upon him- which says that sometimes the Prophet wore his ring on his right hand, and sometimes on the left. The scholars’ opinion in drawing a conclusion from the difference of this narration is divided.

وأحسن ماقيل في ذلك ماذكره الحافظ ابن حجر حيث قال : (ويظهر لي أن ذلك يختلف باختلاف القصد، فإن كان اللبس للتزين به فاليمين أفضل، وإن كان للتختم به فاليسار أولى لأنه كالمودع فيها، ويحصل تناوله منها باليمين وكذا وضعه فيها ( فتح الباري 10/327)

The best explanation is what provided by al Hafidz Ibn Hajar in “Fath al Bari”, in which he said,

Ruling of Working at Disbeliever’s Place

Author: ustadz Ammi Nur Baits

In the name of Allah, peace and prayer of Allah be upon His messenger, amma ba’du,

Islam allows its followers to interact with disbelievers. Moreover, this tradition was commonly done by the Messenger of Allah – peace and prayer of Allah be upon him- and his companions. They interacted socially and economically with jews around Medina. And before that, the muslims had also interacted with the disbelievers of Quraish who were their arc enemy.

Imam Bukhari wrote a chapter in his book of valid hadith, ,

باب الشراء والبيع مع المشركين وأهل الحرب

Chapter: Trading with disbelievers and harbi infidels

Ruling of Selling by Credit without Setting The Price

Assalamu’alaikum. Ustadz, in my village, there’s a practice of rice trading in which the farmer sells his rice with due time system, that is, the buyer/collector will pay its price after a year, with the highest price of rice at that time. Thus for example, the crop in January 2014 was immediately sold, but the payment will be received on December 2014 with the price that is determined by the seller, according to the highest price of rice in 2014. The farmers are delighted with this practice since they are not having trouble to stock their rice anymore. And the buyers are happy because they get additional capital to turnover for a year.

What is the ruling of this system, is it allowed or not?

May Allah reward you greatly, wassalam.
