Resolutions of Iftaa' Board

Date Added : 03-12-2015

Resolution No.(39) by the Board of Iftaa`, Research and Islamic Studies:
"Ruling of Sharia on Bahaism"
Date: 25/6/1417 AH, corresponding to 7/11/1996

 

The Board has received the following question:
What is the ruling of Sharia on Mr. (X`s) request to obtain a family register for the first time, taking into consideration the fact that he embraces Bahaism?
Answer: All prefect praise be to Allah, The Lord of The Worlds; and may His blessings and peace be upon our Prophet Mohammad and upon all his family and companions.
The Board is of the view that it isn`t permissible to register the religion of the above mentioned person in his family register or passport because the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan doesn`t recognize "Bahaism" and any Muslim who converts to it is considered an apostate and takes the rulings of Sharia on apostates. Moreover, in the official records and documents he remains a Muslim based on his father`s family register until a Sharia court rules that he is an apostate. And Allah knows best.
