All perfect praise be to Allah The Lord of The Worlds. Blessings and peace be upon our Prophet Mohammad, his family and noble companions.

Jordanians take pride in their country as an oasis of security and stability, being the country of the Muhajirin (emigrants) and the Ansar (helpers), and a safe haven for those in distress. God willing, Jordan will continue as such beating on the awareness of its people and the wisdom of its youth who built it with tenacity and ability. In these times, we are going through; we affirm that it is the right of citizens to express their views and attitudes through peaceful and legal methods. However, we call on all Jordanians to unite and cooperate in piety and righteousness, preserve national unity, maintain security and stability, and prevent any transgression against public or private property. 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. {Al-Mai`dah/2}.


The General Iftaa` Dept. affirms that it is obligatory to abide by the rules of Sharia, resort to reason and logic, observe interests of citizens and country, preserve public and private property, protect national achievements, and carry out comprehensive reform in various spheres of life. This is to achieve what Allah Stated in the following verse: "I only desire (your) betterment to the best of my power; and my success (in my task) can only come from God. In Him I trust, and unto Him I look." {Hud/88}.


This great religion, Islam, forbids aggression against funds and property, both public and private, honor and life. It also forbids intimidating people and regards such an act one of the grave sins. The Messenger of Allah Says (What means): "Everything belonging to a Muslim is inviolable for a Muslim; his honor, his blood and property." {Transmitted by Muslim}. He also Says (What means): "Verily your blood, your property and your honor are as sacred and inviolable as the sanctity of this day of yours, in this month of yours and in this town of yours." {Transmitted by Bukhari}.


We call upon the scholars of the nation, the wise and the people of consequence to play their guiding and reformist role and take the supreme interests of the nation and country into consideration. We ask The Almighty to Keep our country safe and secure, Spare it along with the rest of the Muslim countries seditions, visible and invisible. Indeed, He Is The Best to Protect and The Best to help.

Summarized Fatawaa

Does the deceased hear the supplications or recitations of those visiting his/her grave? And does making constant supplications for the deceased who didn`t adhere to performing the prescribed prayers ameliorate his/her affliction?

Praise be to Allah the Lord of the Worlds.

In principle, the dead hear the living since it has been rigorously authenticated that the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) ordered the bodies of the idolaters slain in the Battle of Badr to be buried. He then approached them and called them one by one and said, “Have you found what your Lord promised to be true for we have found what our Lord promised us to be true.” ‘Umar asked him, “O messenger of God! Why do you speak to lifeless bodies?” The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) replied, “By the One Who has sent me with the truth! You do not hear my words better than they do except that they cannot respond.”{Related by Bukhari & Muslim}.

However, not all the deceased are in the same situation because Allah the Almighty says, "Before them is a Partition till the Day they are raised up."{Al-Mu`minun, 100}. Moreover, supplication reaches the deceased. And Allah knows best.


Is it permissible for a woman to visit the doctor while in her `Iddah(waiting period)?

It is permissible for her to do that during day time, but it is impermissible for her to go out at night except for a sound reason.

Is it permissible for a man to lie to his wife? Is it permissible for a man to abandon his wife to work in Saudi Arabia, without her approval, although he is wealthy?

All perfect praise be to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds; may His blessings and peace be upon our Prophet Mohammad and upon all his family and companions.
The Messenger of Allah commanded men to treat women kindly, so marital problems should be solved through understanding, and whatever causes harm to a woman is forbidden. And Allah The Almighty Knows Best.

Is it permissible for me to make up for my late father`s missed fasts, and should I make an intention to this end by saying: “I intend to make up for my late father`s missed fasts .”

It is permissible to fast on behalf of the deceased father in order to make up for his missed fasts, and you should make the intention for offering fast from night time, but uttering the intention isn`t a condition.
