From the Fatwa Department
Q: Is it permissible to use mxit, facebook and other social networks?
Q: My friend accidentally killed his mother. Is he entitled to the estate as he is the only child? The SA law found him not guilty but negligent. Islamically does he have to be killed?
Q: My question is regarding year-end gifts / season gifts. We receive different kinds of gifts from our suppliers. Some of them are just items of use and others are edible items. Some of them are clearly marked as season's greetings and others read happy new year, some read as year end greetings, etc. And some dont have anything written on it. Can we use/consume these items? What should we do if not allowed to use them?
Q: I wanted to know if it is allowed in Islam to wear clothes upon which some cartoons or other faces are drawn? Is it allowed to gift these kind of dresses to our relatives or friends who like to wear such kind of clothes? Is playing with stuffed toys allowed or not?
