                          Statement on Mourning the Saudi Security Services Martyrs of Duty


Allah the Almighty Says {what means}: "Think not of those who are slain in God’s way as dead. Nay, they live, finding their sustenance in the presence of their Lord; They rejoice in the bounty provided by God: And with regard to those left behind, who have not yet joined them (in their bliss), the (Martyrs) glory in the fact that on them is no fear, nor have they (cause to) grieve." {Al-Imran, 169-171}.


With deep sadness and sorrow, the General Iftaa` Department mourns the Saudi security services martyrs of duty who were treacherously killed in Al Medina Al Munawwarah near the Prophet's Mosque and during the last days of the holy month of Ramadan: the month of forgiveness, mercy and tolerance.


Terrorists with ideologies of darkness assassinated a group of soldiers who were carrying out their sacred national duty in preserving the security of Al Medina Al Munawwarah and protecting the guests of the Most Merciful, visitors and performers of Umrah. This is a severe transgression against innocent individuals guarding their homeland and preserving security to enable Muslims perform the rituals of Islam, and consequently violating the sanctity of this city about which the Prophet (PBUH) said: "Medina is a sanctuary from that place to that. Its trees should not be cut and no heresy should be innovated nor any sin should be committed in it, and whoever innovates in it a heresy or commits sins (bad deeds), then he will incur the curse of Allah, the angels, and all the people." {Transmitted by Bukhari}. This heinous act took place during the holy month of Ramadan, reflecting a criminal behavior that goes against all the values of Islam and humanity. These thugs respect not in Muslims the ties either of kinship or of covenant. 


The Department extends its deepest condolences to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the families of the martyrs, asking Allah The Almighty to Give them patience and solace, and to accept the martyrs in paradise along with the prophets (PBUT) (who teach), the sincere (lovers of Truth), and the witnesses (who testify), and the Righteous (who do good): Ah! What a beautiful fellowship! In this regard, Prophet Muhammad (PBUH): "There are two eyes which will never be touched by hell, an eye which weeps from fear of God and an eye which spends the night on guard in God’s path." {Transmitted by Tirmidhi}.  The blood of these innocent Muslims will remain witness to the crimes of this despicable criminal group. 


                                Indeed, we belong to Allah, and indeed, to Him we will return

                            (The wrongdoers will come to know what ˹evil˺ end they will meet)

What is the ruling on taking part in an online contest to win a prize of 100,000 dollars in return for answering thirty questions in different fields of knowledge and science? This is knowing that there is no drawing of lots; only one or two cards are purchased to commence the contest.

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.
This is a form of gambling, which is impermissible to participate in, because the people in charge of this online contest increase the value of the calls to compensate for the value of the prizes. And Allah The Almighty Knows Best.
