Resolutions of Iftaa' Board

Date Added : 27-10-2015

Resolution No.(141),(6/2010) by the Board of Iftaa`, Research and Islamic Studies: "Ruling on Investment at the Dead Sea Area"

All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of The Worlds; and may His blessings and peace be upon our Prophet Mohammad and upon all his family and companions.
During its fourth session held on the above date, the Board reviewed the questions sent by Jordan Heritage Revival Company regarding the ruling of Sharia on swimming and picknicking at the Dead Sea area as well as investing that area in building hotels that neither serve alcoholic drinks, nor contain any forbidden matters.
After thorough studying and deliberating, the Board decided what follows:
The Board is of the view that it is permissible to invest the Dead Sea area in building hotels so long as these don`t sell any forbidden items such as alcoholic drinks, or pork, and don`t have mixed swimming pools. As regards swimming and pickncking in that area, there is no Sharia approved evidence that forbids doing that, because in principle things are permissible unless forbidden by an established evidence from Sharia: the Noble Quran and the Prophetic Sunnah.
