Resolution No.(90) by the Board of Iftaa`, Research and Islamic Studies:

“ Ruling on the Condition Set by the Endower “

Date: 20/6/1426 AH, corresponding to 27/7/2005 AD.





What is the ruling of Sharia on registering a charitable endowment document of lands No.(279-51) for building a mosque and its annexes over the basement which contains stores and warehouses established on the above lands . This is provided that the ownership of these stores and warehouses remains to the endower`s offspring- if there is any- his wife, or wives-if there is any- then to the Ministry of Endowments and Islamic Sites,  as a charitable endowment for the sakes of Allah?

Answer: All success is due to Allah.

The Board is of the view that the above mentioned is permissible, and the condition of the endower is permissible as well since it is as binding as the provisions of Sharia, and since it brings benefit to the endowment itself. And Allah Knows Best.

Summarized Fatawaa

Is it permissible to go to the bathroom wearing a necklace that has the word ”Allah” inscribed on it?

Anything that contains words pertaining to Allah, The Almighty, is desired to be left outside when going to the bathroom, or to be hidden for fear of losing it.

What is the ruling on making up for missed fasting after the second half of Sha`ban (the month before Ramadhaan)?

One is obliged to make up for missed fasting before the start of next Ramadhaan, and regardless of offering it during the first, or the second half of Shab`an. This is because the prohibition mentioned in the Hadith is for offering absolute voluntary fasting in the second half of Sha`ban. And Allah Knows Best.

Sometimes I receive a message containing a picture of someone desecrating the Noble Quran. The sender asks recipients to send that message to their contacts as an act of defending the Quran. What should I do when receiving such messages?

Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds.
