Bismillaahi`r-Rahmaani`r-Raheem

Alhamdulillaah, wa`s-salaatu wa`s-salaamu ‘alaa rasoolillaah, wa ba’ad:

Lesson 007

(Baabu`l-Aaneeyah)

[Animal Skin/Leather]

[18/06/2008]

  • Utensils of Gold and Silver

The Dhaahireeyyah, Ibn ‘Abdu`l-Barr, an-Nawaawee, ibn Qudaamah, rahimahumAllaah, they all said that the opinion that the utensils of gold and silver may not be used for anything (including doing wudoo’ etc.) was the majority opinion, and some of them (such as Ibn ‘Abdu`l-Barr) said it is based on Ijmaa’ before another scholar came and differed with them (Dawood – ?).

Thus, perhaps it is safer to follow the opinion that it is not permissible to use utensils of gold and silver for anything. Allaah knows best.

If the utensils are plated with gold and silver, then they take the same ruling as that of utensils made of gold and silver, unless they are soldered due to a need.

Bismillaahi`r-Rahmaani`r-Raheem

Eating the Food Cooked by a Disbeliever

Al-hamdu lillah (praise be to Allah). There is no objection for a Muslim to eat from food that a kaafir (unbeliever), whether polytheist or otherwise, has cooked, as the issue of cooking does not involve slaughtering according to Islamic guidelines so that we would require the person to be from ahl il-kitaab (People of the Book) among the kuffar. In fact, it is only a matter of cooking, so the only issues that concern us are cleanliness and the avoidance of najasa (impurity), and likewise that nothing haram (forbidden) is mixed with the food such as khamr (wine or alcoholic beverages) or lard.

May Allah protect us from harm, evil and the things he has forbidden (al-muharramaat).

I begin with the Name of Allaah, the most Merciful, the One Who bestows Mercy

All praises and thanks belong to Allaah, and may the blessings and peace of Allaah be upon His Messenger. To proceed:

Lesson 006

(Baabu`l-Aaneeyah)

[Utensils]

[11.06.2008]

The majority of the scholars considered human blood to be Najas, and a minority amongst the scholars considered human blood to be taahir (with the exception of menstrual blood).

Say (O Muhammad): “I find not in that which has been inspired to me anything forbidden to be eaten by one who wishes to eat it, unless it be Maytatah (a dead animal) or blood poured forth (by slaughtering or the like), or the flesh of swine (pork, etc.) for that surely is impure, or impious (unlawful) meat (of an animal) which is slaughtered as a sacrifice for others than Allâh (or has been slaughtered for idols, etc., or on which Allâh’s Name has not been mentioned while slaughtering). But whosoever is forced by necessity without wilful disobedience, nor transgressing due limits, (for him) certainly, your Lord is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.”
[Soorat al-An’aam (006:145)]

Does this blood not tell us that flowing blood is haraam and impure?
