29/30 Fiqhi Seminar

29/30 Fiqhi SeminarAl-Mahadul Aali Al-Islami, Hyderabad, 1-4 October 202

Press Release:


Suggestions and resolutions passed during the 29th and 30th fiqhi seminars of Islamic Fiqh Academy (India)

The 29th and 30th seminars of the Islamic Fiqh Academy (India) were jointly held from 1st to 4th of October 2021 in Al-Madaul Aali Al Islami Hyderbad. The 29th seminar was scheduled to be held by the end of 2019 but due to some reasons it could not be possible to arrange the program in the year 2019 and then it was impeded by the pandemic in 2020 as well. It was therefore decided to jointly organize both the seminars. 

The seminars jointly comprised a total of eight sessions including two opening and two concluding sessions. The opening sessions began on 2nd of October 2021 in the morning in which Maulana Syed Rabey Hasani Nadvi (online), Maulana Nematullah Qasmi, Maulana Khalid Saifullah Rahmani, Maulana Ateeq Ahmad Bastavi, Maulana Ubaidullah Bastavi  among over a hundred prominent scholars from different institutions across the country were present. 

The 39the seminar covered four topics while the 30th one was dedicated for discussing two topics and the following suggestions were unanimously offered:

Suggestion re a woman’s journey without a mahram (Islamically unmarriageable male relative)

 It was an important topic for deliberation in the 39th seminar. In light of the papers received, the question thrown and the discussions held, the following resolutions were passed:     

1. A woman going out for a journey is required to do so accompanying a mahram due to the risk involved. And it makes no difference whether it is a long journey or a short one. It will therefore be impermissible for her to travel without a mahram even if it is to a distance shorter than what makes it a Shar’i journey when it is risky. The ruling about concession in the Salah will however rely on a distance recognized by the Shari’ah for the same.

2. A woman should generally avoid going out on a Shar’i journey alone even if there is no imminent risk to her safety. However, if she must and it is not possible for her to take her husband or a mahram along with her then it would be permissible for her to travel alone in an apparently safe environment.   

3. As a journey for Hajj or Umrah takes days during which a woman often needs a man’s help, it will not be permissible for her to travel in the company of reliable women only. The same applies to the case of an elderly lady as she might be more in need of help from a man.

4. It is not permissible for a woman having no mahram or incapable of bearing the cost of accompanying a mahram to travel with the group organized by a Hajj committee or a Hajj tour agency.

5. With respect to clause 3 and 4, it should be borne in mind that this prohibition is based on the principles of Hanafi Fiqh. The followers of other schools that allow women to go for Hajj in the company of a women only group may act accordingly.

Besides discussing emerging issues, Islamic Fiqh Academy also brings forth some principles of Islamic jurisprudence for deliberation so that the rising issues can be accurately judged. An important topic for discussion in the seminar was about the principle called sadd-i zari’ah literally blocking the means. In the light of the papers presented and the discussion followed the following suggestions were put forth in this regard:

1. Prohibition of things permissible in themselves due to leading to something impermissible is called sadd-i zari’ah

2. Sadd-i zari’ah is recognized in the Shari’ah and a number of rulings are based on it.

3. Adopting the means that definitely or most probably lead to something prohibited is unanimously impermissible.

4. The means that most likely do not lead to something prohibited but often do should also be avoided.

5. Means that rarely lead to a sin are deemed permissible in the Shari’ah.

6. This principle plays a key role in a number of contemporary issues and the Ulama may employ it to understand such issues, for example:

a. Prohibition of organized tawarruq

b. Prohibition of using android mobile, DVT and VCR etc for watching pornography.

Suggestion re some important issues related to moon-sighting

1. The horizon where the moon is sighted on the first day is called matla. Matla for all the places where the crescent is usually sighted on the same day is considered one in Islam while two such places of which one sees the moon one day before or after the other are considered to differ in the matla.

If moon is sighted in an area among the areas sharing the same matla, the Muslims in the other parts of the country should wait for an announcement by their local Qazi or the Hilal committee. The local Qazi and the Hilal committee should however make sure that all the Islamically legal requirements are met before the announcement.

3. There is nothing wrong if one consults the experts in astronomy and meteorology to know if observation of the crescent by sight is possible or whether the sky will be clear or not. The moon-sighting is determined by observation by sight only and not by astronomical calculations. 

4. If astronomical calculations suggest impossibility of observation by sight then extra care should be taken while accepting testimonies.

5. An unclear matla is when there is something in the sky that disturbs observing the moon by sight such as clouds, dust, environmental  pollution etc.

6. If the matla is clear then the moon should be sighted by a considerable number of people, be it of Ramadan or of either of the two Eids.

7. To accept testimony of moon-sighting from a person, it is enough that the individual is not considered a liar in his/her society and is not an infamous offender. 

8. A person who has observed the moon should go to register his testimony to the Qazi or to the Hilal committee depending on who decides as taking care to sight the soon and registering one’s testimony is also a virtuous deed. 

9. If no testimony is yet received by the Qazi or the Hilal committee then whoever has seen it must immediately go to give testimony. Any delay will be inexcusable. 

10. Where the moon-sighting is determined by a Qazi or the Hilal Committee, an announcement by the same authority will be binding on the people of the area. It will however not be binding on people of the other areas unless a local authority makes the announcement. 

11. If an announcement is broadcast through radio, television or other information media citing the exact wording of the respective Qazi or that of the Hilal committee it will be Islamically valid and binding no matter who makes the announcement. 

12. People in countries that usually have an unclear sky should rely on sighting of a neighboring country where the sky is usually clear instead of resorting to astronomical calculations.

13. If the moon-sighting is determined in several states of a country and the news reaches to other states with such reliable means that changes of it being a fake news are slim then the Qazis and Hilal committees of other states may decided accepting it as a widespread news (istifaza).

14. In case of no mass sighting or no sighting at all in a certain state or city while the sighting has been proved in neighboring regions, the Qazi or the Hilal committee will have the right to announce. If the place has no Qazi or Hilal committee then an alim and mufti whom people consult for their religious affairs will have this right. An announcement made by unauthorized people will not be considered.    

15. If people break their fasts following an announcement by an unauthorized individual/entity then only qaza will be obligatory

16. Ideally there should be one united Hilal committee in a city or state. However, if there are more ,they should work in collaboration so as to save the Ummah from disunity and confusion. 

17. The seminar requests all the Ulama and religious institutions to form a committee that will consult all the Hilal committees and the institutions that care for moon-sighting and after determination in light of the Shar’i principles make a united announcement.  The committee must have representatives from all the Islamic schools of thought to save people from the confusion they face.   

18. The seminar strongly recommends that astronomy should be included in the madrasa syllabus as a compulsory subject again.

Suggestion re buying and selling of fruits in the orchards

1. Selling the fruits of an orchard for one, two or more years in advance is called Bay’ al-Mu’awamah and Bay’ al-Sinin. The Messenger of Allah (S) has reportedly prohibited it.

2. If fruits have not yet appeared on the trees then it is invalid to sell them.

3. If fruits have appeared on the trees then it is valid to sell them.

4. If trees have blossomed then it is also valid to sell them.

5. If fruits have appeared on most of the tress then it is valid to sell all the fruits.

6. In clause 3, 4 and 5, if both parties agree to leave the fruits till they ripen, they will be halal for the buyer.

7. Ijarah of trees without the field is invalid.

8. It is however valid if one takes the field along with its trees on lease.

9. With respect to sale of orchards, one should wait for the fruits to ripen before selling.

Suggestion re some important issues arising from Corona

Corona has impacted all walks of life including performance of certain forms of worship for the believers. To count a few:

1. In view of the restrictions imposed due to the pandemic, it is allowed to organize multiple congregations for the five daily prayers as well as the Jumu’ah and the two Eid prayers.  Care should be taken that each congregation has a different imam and a different arrangement than the previous one.

2. In normal circumstance, if a masjid falls short of incommoding the growing number of worshippers and it is not feasible to make prayer rows outside then Salah may be performed in multiple congregations till expansion of the Masjid or construction of a new one.

3. In view of the pandemic restrictions, it would be allowed to pray Jumu’ah at different places beside the one held in the Masjid.  Maulana Muhammad Mustafa Abdul Quddus however disagrees.

4. People willing to offer Zohr at home due to the pandemic may do so in congregation as well as individually.

5. If bathing or performing tayammum is unfeasible for a dead due to the Corona restrictions then the obligation is dropped and it will be valid to perform Janazah without it.

6. If it is unfeasible to shroud a person who died due to Corona virus according to the Prophetic tradition then his cover should be wrapped according to the tradition if possible. However, if that is also not feasible then the cover will be considered his Kafan. 

7. If a person who died due to Corona virus is buried without performing Janazah for him then the prayer can be performed at his grave as long his dead body is  supposed to be intact.

The Shari’ah rules and regulations for using social media

In the 30th seminar of the Academy held on 3rd and 4th of October 2021 an important topic “The Shari’ah rules and regulations for using social media” was thrown for discussion and the following resolutions were passed:

 1. Social media is an important innovation of this time with both positive and negative sides.

2. Forwarding verified religious and informative things is permissible.

3. A thing is judged in view of the purpose sought from it. Therefore, working with a site that promotes pornography will therefore be impermissible.

4. Propagating social media contents that mock moral values and promote irreligious and deviant thoughts is not permissible except that the person the material is forwarded to is expected to refute them.  

5. It is permissible to use mobile and social media for educational purposes. However, the user should stay away from things that may harm him or her physically or spiritually.

6. Social media can be used for communicating the message of Islam, learning Islamic and moral values and Islamically legal commercial purposes.

7. The recommendation committee requests the academy to form a sub-committee for scrutinizing the online activities related to the Darul Qaza and preparing a detailed report.

8.  Listening an audio or watching a video with Islamically legal contents is valid and similarly if a company pays for forwarding such audios or videos the money will be legal.

9. Deliberate inclusion of illegal or unverified ads for promoting your videos is not valid.  

10. Online games are considered bad for several reasons and therefore it is not valid to play them or make them a means of income. However, if they are free from gambling, wasting time and money and immoral contents then one may play and win prices. 

11. It is not Islamically valid to add someone to any social media group without prior explicit or implicit permission.

12. It is not allowed to make pdfs of the books whose rights are reserved for their authors or publishers or to make digital copies of them by converting to any other format for sharing on social media without permission.

13. While using social media one should follow the Islamic and moral values and should avoid all irreligious and immoral things.

14. A number of sites created by the deviant sects can be detected on social media. This seminar advises the youth to stay away from such sites and consult the reliable scholars if there is any doubt whatsoever.

Chiefly led by its general secretary Maulana Khalid Saifullah Rahmani, secretary for academic issues  Mualana Ateeq Ahmad Bastawi (Hadith and Fiqh teacher at Darul Uloom Nadwatul Ulama, Lucknow), secretary for  seminars Maulana Muhammad Obaidullah Asadi (Shaikhul Hadith at Jamia Arabia Hathaura, Banda), secretary for finance Maulana Mufti Ahmed Devalvi (founder and principal of Jamia Uloomul Qur’an Jambusar, Gujarat; it was participated by Maulana Dr. Zafarul Islam Siddiqui (formerly Shaikhul Hadith and Head of the Teachers at Darul Uloom Mau), Maulana Mufti Junaid Ahmad Falahi (Indore).

Maulana Khalid Saifullah Rahmani, the general secretary of the academy presented a report for activities done from April 2019 to October 2020. The report said that though it was not possible to hold the annual Fiqhi seminar this year, it would hopefully be held in 2021 at Darul Uloom (Wakf) Deoband in which ‘Sale of fruits in the orchards’, ‘women’s journey without mahram (non-marriageable relative)’ ‘crescent sighting’ and a an important principal issue ‘Blocking the Means’ will be brought into discussion in which ulama from across the country will take part. Despite the adverse situations, the academy managed to organize an important seminar on ‘Islam and Muslims in Rajasthan- issues and the current situation’ which was presided by the famous religious scholar Maulana Fazlur Rahim Mujaddidi while another equally important seminar was held on the topic ‘Classic and Modern Arabic Poetry in India’ that was presided by Prof. Mohammed Aslam Islahi. Meanwhile another important seminar was held in Darul Uloom Mau on the topic ‘The Science of Hadith in India and famous Indian scholars of Hadith’. The latter was a two-day conference presided by Maulana Mohammed Nematullah Azami (the head of the academy) in which around two hundred fifty scholars from across the country participated. Besides, five academic lectures were also held at different educational institutions around the country. The academy has also been supervising preparation of an encyclopedia of the Indian faquha (Islamic jurists) entitled as Mausu’a Fuqaha-i Hind. The task continued over the ongoing year too. The academy has also been keen at training the new generation in the field and therefore it often invites the young scholars from different madrasas and universities to submit research papers on different important Fiqhi and intellectual topics. Accordingly, a number of papers on seven important topics were received this year while the task is underway on other 8 titles. A major initiative of the academy has been Urdu translation of the Arabic Fiqhi Encyclopedia that was first compiled in Kuwait. Presently, translation of another important book entitled in Arabic as Al-Mufassal li Ahkam al-Mar’ah (which, as the title suggests, deals with issues specifically related to women) comprising 11 volumes are under way of which translation of 8 have so far been completed and are currently in the editing process. The rest three are being translated. Once complete, it will hopefully make a great contribution to the Islamic literature in Urdu.  

The academic projects designed by the administration for the year 2021 include preparation of research papers on sixteen titles, organizing workshops on different Fiqhi and other intellectual topics, holding lectures on modern topics in madrasas and on ten  religious topics in modern institutions in Delhi, Lucknow, Patna, Hyderabad, Mumbai, Indore and Kolkata. Moreover, three summer camps will be held respectively in Aligarh, Hyderabad and Indore.  Five books in Urdu and English will be prepared exclusively dealing with the issues faced by the Muslims in northeast India. Keeping the present circumstances in mind, Islamic literature on various jurisprudential and intellectual topics will be produced in local languages. This literature will be prepared in Hindi, Bangla, Gujarati, Malayalam, Tamil and Telugu and will be Da’wah-oriented. Amid the hate-filled atmosphere, the academy is also thinking about producing books on topics such as religious tolerance during Muslim rule, the humanitarian call of Islam and patriotism in Islam.

Besides, five new members namely Maulana Mohammed Sufyan Qasmi, (Mohtamim, Darul Uloom (Wakf) Deoband), Maulana Zafar Alam Nadvi (Fiqh teacher and Mufti at Darul Uloom Nadwatul Ulama Lucknow), Maulana Badr Ahmad Mujibi Nadvi (Imarat-i Shari’a Phulwari Sharif,  Patna), Maulana Mufti Anwar Ali Qasmi (Shaikhul Hadith and head teacher, Darul Uloom Mau) and Maulana Abdush Shakur Qasmi (Shaikhul Hadith, Darul Uloom al-Islamia Oachira Kerala) were elected to fill the seats vacant in the administrative body. On the other hand, Maulana Anis Aslam Miftahi, Maulana Safdar Ali Nadvi and Mufti Imtiyaz Ahmad Qasmi were respectively elected as in charge of management, in charge of academic affairs and in charge of communication. All the three have long been associated with the academy and contributed greatly to its cause.

On this occasion, the members who died during the year namely Hazrat Maulana Burhanuddin Sanbhali (vice president), Hazrat Maulana Muhammad Qasim Muzaffarpuri (administration member) and Hazrat Maulana Amin Usmani (former secretary for management) were remembered, their valuable services appreciated and prayer for their forgiveness was done.

Lastly, all expressed their happiness that all the members and the whole academy staff despite unfavorable circumstances continued to further the cause and let no hindrance come in the way.
