Q: Would cupping break wudu according to the opinion in the Hanafi Mathab that ikhraaj (removal) of blood will not break wudu and it must flow on its own?

A
: Cupping involves making incisions on the skin which results in blood flowing. Hence, the wudhu will break.

And Allah Ta'ala Knows Best

 

Q: If you take over a business, do you have to honour all existing contracts even if not economically feasible?

A:
It is difficult for us to comment without investigating the full nature of the contract. If one had only purchased the stock and not the registered trading name and company etc. then it is obvious that there is no need to honour the contracts as they are not related to the mere sale of the stock. However, if the entire running entity was sold and there was no clear exclusion of the outstanding contracts and debts then those contract that are not against the Shariah would have to be honored. One should ascertain such matters before the transaction so that one may structure the purchase in the most appropriate manner.

Q: The commonly know ruling regarding the suitability of a sheep for Qurbani is that it should be a year old or 6 months old and resemble a 1 year old. It is now very common that sheep are raised using a modern "feedlot" system that courses rapit growth. A 4 month old Lamb can weigh more than 55 kgs while an average 1 year old grass fed sheep weighs about 51 kgs. I should mention that most Marino sheep and cows in South Africa are raised in Feedlots. Is it suitable to use a lamb for Qurbani that is large because of its diet in the feedlot but is younger than 6 months old?

A:
No.

It is necessary for the sheep to be at least 6 months old.

And Allah Ta'ala Knows Best

 

Q: I have been given money from my bank as a token of apology, and to retain my business with them. Like a gift. Now, most banks in the UK are riba based. I have read fatwa from Hanafi Ulema, that it is acceptable to accept whilst few say it is not permissable because it would a riba based institution. So, when a layperson is presented with two conflicting opinions, can he go for the easier option?

A:
You should follow the view of the Ulama that you have confidence in and generally follow. If you are still not clear then adopt the safer and cautious ruling for yourself but do not enforce this on others.

And Allah Ta'ala Knows Best

 

Q: If a adult girl finds out that her parents didn't make aqeeqah for her when she was small because of financial difficulty, can the adult girl make aqeeqah for herself now that she's older?

A:
Aqeeqah is not compulsory rather it is Mustahab. If one has the means and one can manage doing an Aqeeqah then this may be done. However this should not be at the expense of other obligations like one's Wajib Qurbani.

And Allah Ta'ala Knows Best

 

Q: Would it be okay for several persons to jointly sponsor a Qurbaani for a deceased without making one single person the owner?

A:
There is a difference of opinion amongst our Ulama regarding this masalah.

In our understanding as long as each of them have done their Wajib Qurbani they could jointly make a Nafl Qurbani on behalf of the marhoomeen etc.

And Allah Ta'ala Knows Best

 

Q: A girl had very bad jinn posession/jadu (magic). She was speaking to birds in another language, couldn't write exams and could eat abnormally 5 to 6 burgers at a time (amongst other things). She used to make Sehri with the whole family and whenever her mother was with her she would not eat during the day. However her mother found her eating a few times when she was alone. Now that she is better she has absolutely no recollection of the other days, whether she ate or not.

1. Does she have to keep a Kaffaarah for those days her mother found her eating?

2. What about the other days which she cannot remember at all but they suspect she ate?

A:
1. If she had been eating when she was not in her correct frame of mind then she does not have to keep kaffaarah.

2. As above.

And Allah Ta'ala Knows Best
