The General Iftaa` Department Warns against Books Promoting Takfir, Tabdi` and Tadlil


All perfect praise be to Allah the Lord of the Worlds. May His peace and blessings be upon Prophet Mohammad and upon all his family and companions.


The General Iftaa` Department has reviewed some books of Aqida (Islamic Creed) promoted through some competitions aiming at tagging Muslims with Kufr (Disbelief), Tabdi` (Declaring another Muslim to be an innovator), and misguiding the masses of Shlu Sunnah Wal Jama`aah. This leads to spreading the culture of exaggeration in religion, Takfir and subjecting society to the danger of facing those who carry extremist thinking and issuers of irregular Fatwas that contradict with the Prophetic methodology and undermine the constants of society`s security, belief, doctrine and intellectual balance. This is particularly since the Hashemite leadership, direct descendants of the Prophet Mohammad (PBUH), has adopted a methodology that rests on moderation and accepting others. These blessed efforts culminated in the Message of Amman, the Message of tolerant Islam, launched by His Majesty King Abdullah II. It aims to adopt moderate thinking that unites the Muslim nation and accepts the other under the umbrella of Islam`s mercy, tolerance and moderation.


The Department also confirms rejecting intellectual extremism and strictness and opts for dialoguing and arguing with wisdom and fair preaching, as taught in the Glorious Quran. Allah says {what means}: " Invite (all) to the Way of thy Lord with wisdom and beautiful preaching; and argue with them in ways that are best and most gracious: for thy Lord knoweth best, who have strayed from His Path, and who receive guidance." {An-Nahil, 125}.


In conclusion, emanating from its national and religious duty, the General Iftaa` Department warns against publishing and circulating such books as they pose a great danger to society and its religious as well as intellectual security. And all perfect praise be to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds.

Summarized Fatawaa

Is it permissible for a woman who broke fasting due to delivery to pay a ransom ?

She should make up for the missed fasting days once she becomes ritually pure, but it is impermissible for her to pay a ransom while being able to fast.

What should a woman, who has given several births during different months of Ramadhaan, and didn`t make up for them in addition to forgetting the exact number of the days and years in which she had missed fasting, do ?

She should make up the days of Ramadhaan that she missed after estimating their number, and paying the ransom(in food) due on each day that she had delayed. She should also repay the ransom according to the number of years if she was able to fast before that time, but didn`t.

There is a job opportunity in the Nuns Hospital. Is it allowed for me to take this job given the difficult living conditions and the high rate of unemployment?

If your work is lawful and has no effect on your beliefs, then there is no sin on you and do your best to represent the true face of Islam. And Allah the Almighty knows best.

Is it permissible for a person who broke fasting in Ramadhaan because of being sick to pay a ransom?

If there is hope for him/her to be cured, then he would be required to make up for the missed fasting days when he/she recovers, and no ransom is due on him/her. If his/her disease is incurable, then he/she would be required to pay a ransom for each missed fasting day, which is (600) grams of wheat, or rice.
