Q) I went to Madinah qabrastaan and there was someone mentionning that the prophet ordered us to take out shoes in qabrastaan. I did not hear such from our ulamas. So should we take out our shoes in qabrastaan Mufti?
A) First of all, there is a hadith that says that the holy prophet(peace be upon him) called a sahabi to take out his shoes mentioned in Abu Dawood and other kitaabs. But it is important to note that we need to put this hadith to the picture of sunnah that the sahabas lived through their lives. We find that generally the sahabas did not take out their shoes in the cimetry. Hence the hadith mentioned is an exception as per the general rule. Furthermore, there was no such order for any other sahabas to remove their shoes in any other occasion. But in fact the holy prophet peace be upon him did say another general hadith that mentions that people wear shoes during burials. It is reposted under the authority of Bukhari that when someone is put in the tomb, then two angels come to the dead almost instantly after burial that the dead can still hear the walking sound of the shoes of the people above him. As such it is permissible to wear shoes in the cemetery. Muhadithins explain the other hadith as an exception based on these grounds: impurity in the shoes of the latter, to teach him humility and prevent him walking on the tombs as mentioned that he was in fact walking on the tombs. Wallahu a`lam.

At least one quarter of the head`s hair should be cleaned and made massah.

Q) There is a project to allow organ collection from dead person. I would like to know whether this is allowed in Islam or not.
A) First of all we should know that our body is the property of God and we cannot dispose or cut it as we wish. Allah Ta`ala has said:’’ There is no altering of God’s creation.’’(30:30) There are specific ordains as to how to proceed with even the hairs of our body. The tafseer Bahr ul Muheet of the said ayah quotes the following hadith: Le prophete a maudit les tatoueuses, celles qui se font tatouer, celles qui epilent leurs sourcils et celles qui espacent leurs dents pour beaute, celles qui font des changements sur la creation d`Allah-Bukhari. Hence during our lifetime we are not allowed to change any physical aspect of our body for aesthetical(beauty) purposes nor can we cut a piece of our body to give to someone else. This is the general verdict as for our body is concerned. In this aspect suicide is condemned by shariah and castration has been prohibited by Bukhari and Muslim ahadiths even in extreme poverty circumstances.
Since there is a hadith in Abu Dawood that says to break the bones of a dead is alike breaking it during his lifetime, we conclude that it is not permissible for us to dispose or cut the dead body as we wish. Kitaabs mentions that if the person had gold teeths, then we should not try to excavate the teeth after his death. In fact we should take extreme care of the body while bathing and walking with it. The term of the body`s respect is to return it to its origin: the earth.
Furthermore the human body is honoured by Allah and its sanctity exceed all creation. Thus we cannot cut or take parts of the body even if he has signed his permission. Because its sanctity, its property, use and ordains are from Allah Ta`ala Himself and we are all bounds dead or alive to his orders. We cannot transact or sell His property because it is against its sanctity. In fact even in the battle field, we are not allowed to mutilate dead bodies of enemies(Bukhari).
Thus it is against Islamic principle to collect dead organs from dead bodies, even they are donated.

Q) Is is permissible to fall in love if I am 16 years old?
A) Love without nikah is a sickness. To fall in love at 16 is an immature state of love. But we recommend taqwa and self control that is necessary at this age. Fasting and spending your Ramadhaan in reading Qur-aan and salaahs would keep yourself away from zina. At this age a few steps towards the imaginary love world may lead to the zina disaster. Cut all communication and meetings during the sacred month of Ramadhaan and develop a love and seclusion towards Allah Ta`ala. Allah Ta`ala is the one that can save your love and you should fear that He may turn away your lover`s heart.
How many hearts were sealed yesterday.
Today they are empty of their love.
May be they caused Allah`s wrath.
By their actions blinded by so called love.
Only one love will survive.
The one that started before your mother knew you were there.
A love in the pre-natal era: The almighty`s love!
Moulded you by His wish, Blew in you His Soul
So be His servant and be loyal to Him.
He will submit to your will His creations.
Your lover is no more but one of His creations.

The best protection is to read the surah Kahf or its last 10 verses. When the prophet was being asked ‘’when is the Last Day’’? The answer came from Allah:’’What have you prepared for it?’’(Qur-aan). We better prepare for on coming fitnas and tribulations with salaah and Qur-aan and learning and teaching the education of deen. In fact to promote the education of inheritance of Qur-aan(Mirath) would in fact be a factor to keep all these eras far. Wallahou a`lam bissawaab.
