Throughout history, the strategic planning of an organization has been proven to be a necessity imposed by reality and experiments. Owing to the importance of strategic planning and its role in the formation and advancement of any organization, the General Iftaa` Department(GID) has decided to draw up a five-year strategic plan (2017-2021). Key elements and axes were drawn up in order to produce this plan in a carefully examined scientific manner. This is in order to advance the outputs of the Department and set goals amenable to execution, follow up and assessment.

 

This strategic plan is a guideline for the staff members to absorb strategic thinking as working methodology to be able to achieve the Department`s vision, message and objectives.

 

Summarized Fatawaa

What is the Islamic ruling on adoption, and what is the legal window through which a person can be kind to an orphan girl, attend to her needs and raise her as his own?

Kindness to an orphan entails a great reward from Allah, but adoption is prohibited and invalid. Therefore, it is permissible for the aforementioned person(for example) to make his brother`s wife breastfeed that girl so that he becomes her uncle by suckling provided that he informs her that she isn`t his biological daughter.

Is it permissible for a person, who vowed to offer two Rak`ahs(units of prayer) everyday for Allah`s sake, to do so after the Fajr(dawn) prayer?

In principle, a vow should be fulfilled as it was originally intended, and if its time lapses then, it should be fulfilled at any time because of the vow. Therefore, it is permissible to offer them after the Fajr prayer, and there is no prohibition in doing so. However, it is preferable for him to offer these two Rak`ahs at some other time to avoid the disagreement amongst the scholars in this regard.

Is it lawful or unlawful to take payment of key money?

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.
If the lease contract has expired and the lessor refrained from renewing it, then the tenant is obliged to leave the property for nothing. And Allah the Almighty knows best.

Is a woman`s neck an Awrah(private part)?

It is an Awrah, and it is forbidden for her to reveal it before non-Mahrams(Marriageable men).
