Fridays Freaky Fatwa--Can a Muslim fix a TV and, don't rape my feet

A Muslim asks a scholar

I fix TVs and VCRs, and also install satellite dishes. Is there any sin on me if the owner of these machines uses them to listen to songs and watch movies etc? Please advise me, may Allah reward you with good

And the scholar replies

Praise be to Allah.
Allah says (interpretation of the meaning): 5:2 “Help you one another in virtue, righteousness and piety; but do not help one another in sin and transgressionThere are also a dozen verses that say you can’t take on another person’s burden/sin. But what the hell, right? Here are a few..
4;12 And whoever earns a fault or a sin and then throws it on to someone innocent, he has indeed burdened himself with falsehood and a manifest sin
6;164 And every soul earns not [blame] except against itself, and no bearer of burdens will bear the burden of another. Then to your Lord is your return, and He will inform you concerning that..’
Maybe if the scholar had a dvr he could have heard the Quran and known of these verses. But anyway

What you are doing by fixing TVs, VCRs and satellite dishes which are then used by their owners to listen to and watch haraam things is a kind of helping in sin. The Prophet said: “Whoever calls people to right guidance will have a reward like that of those who follow him, without it detracting from his reward in the slightest. And whoever calls people to misguidance will have a burden of sin like that of those who followed him without that detracting from their sin in the slightest.”

In other words the scholar has no faith in the believers of one god and believes that the Hadith of Muhammad can over-ride the Quran which also says;
35:18 Nor can a bearer of burdens bear another's burdens if one heavily laden should call another to (bear) his load. Not the least portion of it can be carried (by the other). Even though he be nearly related. Thou canst but admonish such as fear their Lord unseen and establish regular Prayer. And whoever purifies himself does so for the benefit of his own soul; and the destination (of all) is to Allah
Not that anyone cares what's in the Quran.

So it is not permissible for you to do this work and it is better for you to look for other work. Remember that Allah says (interpretation of the meaning) 65:2-3. “And whosoever fears Allah and keeps his duty to Him, He will make a way for him to get out from every difficulty. And He will provide him from (sources) he never could imagine
Hmm…that verse is in regards to divorce. I guess the scholar wants the guy to divorce his job? How dumb. Maybe that’s why they use the word; interpretation? Divorce is the same as a fixing a tv.

The Standing Committee for Issuing Fatwas was asked: I work as an electronic engineer and my work involves fixing radios, TVs and VCRs, and similar equipment. I hope that you can advise me as to whether I should continue in this work, knowing that if I leave this job I will miss out on a lot of experience in my field that I have been learning all my life, and I may be adversely affected by leaving it.
They replied: The evidence of sharia from the Quran and Sunnah (Hadith) indicates that the Muslim must be keen to seek a good income, so you should look for a job from which your income will be good (halaal).
I think they want all believers to be poor and stupid---and fear them more than Allah.
With regard to your income from the job you mention, it is not good (halaal), because these machines are usually used for haraam things.
Hellfire, I guess they’re saying one can buy these items, just not have them repaired if they get broke. And here’s another

A Muslim asks a scholar

I have a store selling electrical equipment. Is it permissible for me to sell TVs, VCRs and Playstations and the disks that go in them, knowing that I do not know for what purpose these items will be used?

And the scholar replies
Praise be to Allaah.
These items – TVs, VCRs, etc – are things that may be used for good and bad purposes, but nowadays they are usually used for evil purposes, such as viewing naked women, and listening to idle entertainment such as music, etc. In this case a person should act according to what he thinks is most likely the case.
I say they should never be used to ask a scholar a question.

It is not permissible to sell them to anyone except one who you think will most likely use it for permissable purposes.
Yes, interrogate the customer before you fix their product. When you get fired, interrogate the scholar.

As for one whom you know or think it most likely will use it for haraam purposes, it is not permissible for you to sell it to him, because Allah says (interpretation of the meaning): 5:2 “Help you one another in virtue, righteousness and piety; but do not help one another in sin and transgression”
Fakes. The full verse says this;
5:2 O ye who believe! Violate not the sanctity of the symbols of Allah, nor of the sacred month, nor of the animals brought for sacrifice, nor the garlands that mark out such animals, nor the people resorting to the sacred house, seeking of the bounty and good pleasure of their Lord. But when ye are clear of the sacred precincts and of pilgrim garb, ye may hunt and let not the hatred of some people in (once) shutting you out of the Sacred Mosque lead you to transgression (and hostility on your part). Help ye one another in righteousness and piety, but help ye not one another in sin and rancour: fear Allah. for Allah is strict in punishment
I guess that’s why they include..
(interpretation of the meaning).
Yep, an animal sacrifice is exactly the same as a TV. Fail. So what else do they have?

It says in Fataawa al-Lajnah al-Daa’imah: “Everything that will be used in a haraam manner, or which one thinks will most likely be used in a haraam manner, it is haraam to manufacture it, import it, sell it, and distribute it among the Muslims.”
Hmm…that never made it into the Quran. Maybe they follow a different religion. Maybe these scholars are really Jehovah’s witnesses

The Standing Committee for Issuing Fatwas was also asked the following question:
I work as an electronic engineer, and part of my work involves fixing radios, TVs, VCRs and similar equipment. I hope you can advise me as to whether I should continue in this work, noting that if I give up this work I will miss out on a lot of experience and lose my profession for which I have studied all my life, and leaving it might cause me harm.

They replied: With regard to the Playstation and its disks, they come under the same ruling as mentioned above. It is permissible to sell them to those whom you think will most likely use them for permissible purposes, and it is haraam to sell them to those whom you think will most likely use them for haraam purposes.Translation; do not sell them to anyone on the standing committee. And don’t fix their tv’s, vcr’s or computers. None of these were used by the first believers, the companions, so they should not be used by them.

Many people nowadays use them for haraam purposes, and instead of leisure being something to which a person turns occasionally, leisure has become the main thing for many people, and they spend a lot of their time, money and energy on playing these kinds of games, and going to clubs and swimming pools, travelling, sitting with friends, going on trips, etc.
Which is all perfectly ok according to the Quran. But these pervs should totally stay away from them.

A Muslim asks a scholar

Does the girl who wears Hijab have to cover her feet?

And the scholar replies….women do not have to wear Hijab…kidding, they’re all perverts so here’s their answer, note there is nothing from the Quran…duh.
Praise be to Allaah.

At the time of the Prophet women were keen to cover themselves completely, (actually they ran around half naked) which includes covering the feet. They used to let the hem of their garments hang low. One of them asked the Messenger of Allah about letting this hem touch what is on the ground, which may make it dirty, and he said: “That which comes after it purifies it.” On another occasion, when he said that women should let their hems down by one hand span, one of them said, “But then her feet will show.” This indicates that they were keen to cover their feet and that the feet are part of that which must be covered.
Well the Quran only commands that they cover their genitals. Ladies, when was the last time your little toe had an orgasm? Never? Gee, maybe you’re with the wrong man. Ha

A woman asked Umm Salamah, the wife of the Prophet: I am a woman whose garment drags, and I may walk through a dirty place. Umm Salamah said: The Messenger of Allah said: “That which comes after it purifies it.” Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, Abu Dawood and Ibn Maajah. The hadeeth was classed as ‘for real’ by Shaykh al-Albaani in Saheeh Abi Dawood
But when it comes to women, scholars never agree as to what the companions agreed on

It was narrated that Ibn ‘Umar said: The Messenger of Allah: “Whoever lets his garment drag out of pride, Allah will not look at him on the Day of Resurrection.” Umm Salamah said: What should women do with their hems? He said: “They should let them down a hand span.” She said: Then their feet will show. He said: “Then let it down a cubit, but no more than that.” Narrated by al-Tirmidhi; he said: This is for real. Also narrated by al-Nasaa’ so it must be true. The Hadith was classed as saheeh (which is Arabic for authentic-again with the selective Arabic. Using English makes it sound as silly as it is). by al-Albaani in al-Silsilah al-Saheehah,
So it is not permissible for the woman to wear open shoes which show her feet. But if her clothes are long and she wears socks, there is nothing wrong with that, although it is better for her to cover the feet with the garment and not with socks.
Yeah, it would be awful if her feet got raped.

Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyah (may he soon be fed) said: If a woman wears pants or loose leather slippers, and the jilbab hangs over it so that the shape of the foot cannot be seen, this achieves the purpose, unlike the tight leather slippers which shows the shape of the foot, because this is worn by men.
And only men can show the shape of their…feet?? Brings stupid to a whole new level, doesn’t it?

Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen (may he also soon be fed) said: It is permissible for a woman to let her garment down below the ankles. In fact this is what is prescribed for women, so that they may cover their feet. Covering the feet is something that is prescribed for women and is in fact obligatory for them according to many scholars. What a woman should do is cover her feet, either with her garment which is long and covers them or by wearing socks or shoes and the like.
I think the dude has a foot fetish. The scholar works really hard to make Allah look ridiculous. None of this is in the Quran.

And Allah knows best.
Translation, don’t listen to the stupid scholars
