Q: 135 – Title: What is Misyar / Misyaar Marriage. Is it an acceptable form of Nikah?

Question

What is Misyar / Misyaar Marriage. Is it an acceptable form of Nikah?

Answer

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Assalaamu `alaykum waRahmatullahi Wabarakatoh

Misyaar is described as a form of marriage in which the wife gives up her rights from her husband for example living with her in the same house and providing her with necessary expenses etc. The husband may come to see her at her parent’s home at whatever time he chooses for himself, or at a time agreed by the two.

Misyaar is been practiced in Saudi Arabia and Egypt. Wealthy men sometimes enter into a Misyaar marriage while on vacation especially to poor countries for example Egypt and Syria. Families agree to the arrangement because of the money and the hope that their girl will have some fun and visit places that she can only dream about (i.e. luxury hotels and restaurants). They also hope for some gifts at the end of the vacation and that the rich "husband" will give her some money and divorce her. Sometimes the husband keeps the wife for the next vacation and sends her some money now and then.

Many Misyaar wives hope to win the love of their husbands so that they may live with them permanently. Since the wife knows that she will most likely be divorced, she is more cautious of falling pregnant.  It is believed that Misyaar merely permits men to have sexual relations without committing the sin of adultery. In Saudi Arabia 30 men and women aged between 20-40 were surveyed regarding Misyaar marriage. Over 60 percent of the men surveyed favoured Misyaar marriage with the majority of the respondents in their 20s.

The opinions of women respondents about Misyaar marriage were in sharp contrast to the males’. More than 86 percent of the women aged between 20-40 would not even consider such a marriage for themselves. Only four women, all in the over 40 category would consider such marriages for themselves or relatives. Most of the women respondents called it “legal prostitution”. Many have assimilated Misyaar to Mut’a (Shi’a temporary marriage)

The Qur’an says:

?????? ????????? ???? ?????? ?????? ???? ???????????? ?????????? ???????????? ????????? ???????? ?????????? ????????? ?????????? ????? ??? ?????? ????????? ???????? ??????????????

"And among His signs is this, that He created for you mates from among yourselves, that you may dwell in peace and tranquility with them, and He has put love and mercy between your (hearts): Verily in that are signs for those who reflect" (Surah Rum V:21).

??? ???????? ???????? ???????? ????????? ??????? ?????????? ???? ?????? ????????? ???????? ??????? ????????? ??????? ????????? ???????? ???????? ????????? ?????????? ??????? ??????? ???????????? ???? ?????????????? ????? ??????? ????? ?????????? ????????

"O Humans fear your Guardian Lord, Who created you from a single person created of like nature its mate, and from this scattered (like seeds) countless men and women. Fear Allah through whom you claim your mutual rights" (Surah Nisaa V: 1).

The objective and the goal of marriage in Islam is to enable the spouses to dwell in peace and tranquillity which is achieved through equity, equality, and fulfilment of mutual rights. Marriage binds the spouses and leads them to live a common life and form a family that develops into a deep spiritual and sentimental relation­ship. Marriage is not merely an instrument for legalizing sexual relations, but it is an agreement which unites the very existence of the husband and wife and gives a new colour to their life. It turns them into a couple instead of single individuals and makes them complementary to each other.

The concept of Misyaar marriage is void of fulfilling many fundamental rights of the spouses and reducing the institution of Nikah to merely fulfilling ones passion. Man has been created feable and cannot control his desires and passions. Every person should be the judge of himself as to whether such marriages of this nature conform to the teachings of our beloved Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wasallam).

And Allah knows best

Q: 134 – Title: If Dajjal is pre-destined to be evil and to create havoc on earth, will he be judged and go to Jahannam on the Day of Qiyamah? Shaytaan will definitely go because he directly disobeyed Allah SWT...

Question

If Dajjal is pre-destined to be evil and to create havoc on earth, will he be judged and go to Jahannam on the Day of Qiyamah? Shaytaan will definitely go because he directly disobeyed Allah SWT - it was a choice he made, meaning he was good and then through his arrogance, he became evil. What about Dajjal who is already pre-destined to be evil from the beginning?

Answer

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Assalaamu `alaykum waRahmatullahi Wabarakatoh

It appears that your query is based on your misunderstanding of pre-destiny (Taqdeer). In brief, taqdeer refers to the absolute and perfect knowledge of Allah. He knows ahead of time what everyone will do in the future out of their own will. The absolute knowledge of Allah does not interfere with the independent will of people. People will be judged and rewarded or punished by Allah due to their own will.

We believe that the knowledge of Allah is perfect and everything will fall in place according to the knowledge of Allah without imposing anything against the will of people. Had the knowledge of Allah (Taqdeer) been imposed against the will of people, that will bring to question the entire concept of the day of Qiyamat. Then rewarding through Jannah and Jahannam will be against justice or it will be oppression respectively.

The crimes and punishments of Shaitaan and Dajjal should be viewed in the light of the above explanation. Dajjal will commit acts of Kufr and Shirk out of his own will. Allah having prior knowledge of this does not obstruct the will of Dajjal. Dajjal will be punished for his direct crimes like Shaitan.

Q: 132 – Title: Are my parents doomed to etenal hellfire even though they lived good, decent lives, believed in one God, even allowed their son to become a muslim? Is this ISLAM? Please i need to know that this is not our religion.

Question

i am a revert of 13 years and come from a non muslim upbringing. i am blessed to have the most loving, supportive parents who, through tolerance and open minds, allowed me to embrace islam at the age of 18.

i have always had the belief that the Creator of all that exists is a loving and merciful God who much sooner forgives than punishes. sadly, i have met many muslims who condemn all non muslims to hellfire at a whim. these people take the standpoint that any person who is not a muslim belongs to the fire and have no chance of redemption in the sight of Allah. i am very aware of the meaning of shirk and how greatly Allah frowns upon it and with good reason. my point is this, not all christians believe that jesus (PBUH) is the son of Allah, or is Allah but they merely believe that he is the saviour who will come again and establish Allah's rule on earth. this is very much in line with the islamic belief in the last days.

also, there are people who are completely non religious but still believe in one god and who do not assign partners to Allah Most high. I just cannot in my heart accept that Allah will just throw everyone in hell because they were not muslim, although they believed in the basic tawheed that we muslims adhere to. every surah begins with bismilaah hir rahmaan hir raheem, Allah reminds us that He is the Merciful, the Benevolent.

Are my parents doomed to etenal hellfire even though they lived good, decent lives, believed in one God, even allowed their son to become a muslim? Is this ISLAM? Please i need to know that this is not our religion.

Answer

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Assalaamu `alaykum waRahmatullahi Wabarakatoh

We commend you for your commitment in adhering to Deen. It certainly takes a great amount of courage to accept Islam. We make Dua that Allah makes you steadfast and continue to accept you for His Deen, Ameen.

In principle, anyone who accepts Allah as One and Muhammed (Salalahu Alayhi Wasallam) as His final Messenger will be saved from hell fire. Therefore, if your parents believe in this, they will never be doomed to eternal hellfire.

And Allah knows best

May Allah Taala grant you your heart’s will and desire to get close to Him, Aameen.

You should discuss your wish to take bai’at with your father and seek his advice. Your father is your guardian and he is there to safeguard your interests. This is also the interpretation of your dream.

Q: 131 – Title: Your fatwa no. 5848 – a glorifying eulogy to Muhammad ibn Abdal Wahab mentions the views as held by the said individual.

Question

Your fatwa no. 5848 – a glorifying eulogy to Muhammad ibn Abdal Wahab
mentions the views as held by the said individual. The following passage
is of particular interest:
“The Shaikh explained his views in regard to intercession and made it
clear that he believed in the intercession of the Holy Prophet on the Day
of Resurrection. Authentic books, such as 'Al-Tawassul wal-Wasila' by
Ibn-Taimiya and 'Ad-Dur an-Nadir'by Imaam Shawkaani, were also cited by
him. He finally quoted the Qur'anic verse: "... Those whom you call on,
themselves desire nearness to Allah, which of them shall be nearer to
Allah.? He further explained the Qur'anic injunctions in which Allah says
that all intercessions belonged to Him and He alone will grant permission
for intercessions. The Holy Prophet was granted the right to intercede.
The chapter on intercession in his "Kitab at-Tawhid' is quite elaborate.
Ibn-Taimiya had divided intercession into six categories. The Shaikh also
discussed the visit to the graves in the light of Ahadith. Ibn-Qayyim made
an express statement in the following words: "Among evil practices are
using them (tombs) as religious festivals, performing prayers in them,
walking round them, kissing them and touching them, rubbing the face
against the dust, worshipping persons buried in them, making supplication
to them and calling on them for sustenance, health, repayment of debts,
alleviation of distress, aid to the needy, and other things such as
idolaters used to ask their idols"
1. What were his views regarding ‘Wasilla’ through an individual who has
passed away?
2. Present-day salafis object to the common Muslim facing the grave of
Rasulullah [saw] and making dua [they seemingly tire, yet this practice is
emphatically ceaseless]. Is it permissible to face the grave of Rasulullah
and make dua?
3. The article, with reference to graves, also points out the evil
practices such as “kissing them and touching them, rubbing the face
against the dust…” Is this not in contradiction to the famous and
reverenced Qasida Burda Shareef wherein Imam Buseeri [ra] expreeses the
desire to the rub and kiss the dust of the Prophet’s [saw] grave?
4. Does the Qur’aanic verse quoted in the passage above ‘those whom you
call on…’ refer to asking through the Wasilla of Nabi [saw], since the
context of the discussion above is regarding the Wasilla of Nabi [saw]?

Answer

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
Assalaamu `alaykum waRahmatullahi Wabarakatoh

1.      We are not aware of what his personal beliefs were regarding Wasila through an individual who has passed away.

2.      It is permissible to face the grave of Rasulullah ??? ???? ???? ? ??? and make Du‘?.

·         ?? ???? ???? ? ???? ??? ??? ??? ???? ?????? ?????? ?????? (??? ??????? 192 , ?????)

·         ?? ???? ???? ??? ??? ????? ????? ??? ???? ???? ???? ?????? ??????? ?????? ????? ????? ??? ??? ????? ???? ??? ???? ?? ????? ?????? ????? ????????? ???? ??????? ??? ?????? ?????? ???? ????? ????? ??? ????? ?????? ???? ?????? ???? ???????? ????? ???? ????? ???? ???? ??? ???????? ???????? ???????? ????? ?????? ???????? ??? ???? ?? ?????? ??? ????? ????? ??? ??? ???? ???? ???? ???? ?? ?????? ???? ??? ?????? ???? ???? ???? ????? ????? ??? ?? ????? ??? ????? ????? ??? ???????? ?????? ??? ?? ???????? ????? ?? ??? ????? ??? ???? ????? ?? ???? ???? ????? (??? ??????? 194 , ?????)

3.       It is disliked (Makr?h) to touch, kiss and rub one’s face on a grave. Furthermore, such actions are contrary to the grace and respect of a believer. Imam Buseeri’s couplets should be understood in the context of poetry. It is befitting to mention such words and describe such actions in a poem in honor and love of Rasulullah ??? ???? ???? ? ??? . However, in practical terms, it will not be a show of respect and honor. Respect and honor would be to conduct oneself with humility, dignity and composure whilst one is standing before Rasulullah ??? ???? ???? ? ??? .

·         ??? ???? ????? ??? ????? ??? ???? ??? ??? ?? ???? ??????? ??? ?? ??? ?????? (???????? 621 ??? ????? ???????)

·         ?? ???? ?? ????? ???? ????? ???? ???? ????? ?????? ??????? ????? ?? ????? ? ???????? ? ?????? ? ?????? ? ?????? ? ???????? ??? ????? ????? ??????? ???? ????? (???? ??????? 508 , ????? ?????? )

4.      The mentioned Ayah does not refer to asking through the Wasila of Rasulullah ??? ???? ???? ? ??? .

Note: Mufti Ebrahim Desai and the ‘Ulam? affiliated with Ask-Imam do not agree with the views mentioned in the article, the views of Muhammad ibn Abdul Wahhab or the views of the current day Wahhabis wherein they differ with the Aq?’id and practices of the ‘Ulam? of Deoband and the remainder of the Ahl al-Sunnah. It is unknown how such a response was originally placed on this website. Kindly note that this serves as a clear and lucid renunciation from the aforementioned article.

And Allah knows best
