Press Release on the American Administration’s Decision to Move the US Embassy to Jerusalem
2017/12/10

In the Name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful

All praise is to God, the Lord of the worlds; and may God send his blessings on our master Mohammed and his holy progeny.

We condemn the decision of the American administration to move the US Embassy to the occupied city of Jerusalem, as it is an affront to the Palestinian people and disregard for the feelings of Muslims.

We want to point out that this stance is a natural consequence of the distancing of the Muslims from the teachings of their true religion, their neglect of their shared matters and interests, their fighting amongst themselves, and the spread of the epidemic of extremism and terrorism which has targeted them, and destroyed their societies and their towns, and has distorted the name of their religion. God Almighty has said: “And obey God, and obey the Messenger, and do not into disputes, lest you lose heart and your power departs.”

Today, all are invited – especially those fostering and supporting terrorism – to seriously revise their previous stances, and to open a new page, to unify the positions of the Islamic nations and to build firm foundations in establishing good relations with other nations, which reflects the pliability of their religion and its genuine values.

We seek support and help from only Him, and He is the guardian of the believers

Day Questions

If temporary marriage was contracted for a week with a woman who was a traveler, and she travelled away the next day without notice, must her dowry be paid in full?

If he asked her to be with him during the duration of the marriage and she refused, or he has previously stipulated this on her and she refused to act upon this, he is not liable to pay that portion of the dowry in proportion to the percentage of the time she was unavailable.

Sometimes when I feel sexual attraction, there is an involuntary discharge of liquid, which may or may not be followed by semen. Will I need to do the ghusl of janaba?

If the semen was released, then ghusl must be performed before offering the prayers. The release of another fluid, such as what may be released during foreplay and sexual urges does not obligate ghusl.

Is it permissible for persons other than the parents of the child to raise him or her?

It is permissible for others to raise the child in special circumstances like if the parents are deceased or are non-Muslim.

I just wanted to know if dancing is haram. I know that its haram to dance in weddings and in front of others and you have to be married to dance and that is only in front of your husband, but what if you are not married, is it completely that you are not allowed to dance at all?

Dancing is not prohibited by itself. If it was associated with a prohibition like sexual excitement to other than the husband then it is prohibited. If it is based on musical rhythm then it is unlawful based on compulsory precaution.
