Statement on Fatwa and Credibility in its Dissemination


All perfect praise be to Allah the Lord of the Worlds. May His peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Mohammad and upon all his family and companions.

The Iftaa` Department continues its sacred role in issuing Fatwas as part of its religious and national responsibility, and emanating from the words of Allah The Almighty Who Says (What means): "And before thee also the apostles We sent were but men, to whom We granted inspiration: if ye realise this not, ask of those who possess the Message." [An-Nahil/43].

These Fatwas cover a wide spectrum, such as acts of worship, transactions, philosophy, and morals. The Department stresses that its message aims to establish the foundations of the making of Fatwa in an institutionalized and global form. This is based on the magnanimous objectives of Sharia and the concepts of the true Islam in a bid to raise the religious awareness of society, preserve its intellectual security and social unity, and fortify it against aberrant and extreme thoughts.

It is well known that a Fatwa has special context and circumstances and is usually issued as an answer to a questioner who wants to know the ruling of Sharia on a certain issue. Some Fatwas are published on the Department`s website not for propaganda but to be benefitted from by researchers, academicians, and students of knowledge.

It has been observed that media publish some Fatwas out of their true frame and circumstances causing them to be misunderstood and reflecting a negative image of the nature of the Department`s work.

In addition to stressing the pioneering role of the media in transmitting the information, the Department reminds that it isn`t permissible to take the Fatwa out of its occasion, time, place or use it for a purpose other than that for which it was issued in the first place. Therefore, the Department calls on media to spread Fatwas based on the moral responsibility governing the staff working in this field. This is to serve the country and citizens as well as preserve its safety and security. And All perfect praise be to Allah The Lord of The Worlds.
