Resolution No.(23): By The Board of Iftaa', Researches and Islamic Studies: "Being a Member of Jordan Radio and Television Association for Housing"

Date: 30/04/1413 AH, corresponding to 27/01/1997AD

What is the ruling on subscribing in the membership of Jordan Radio and Television Association for Housing whereas it deals with usurious transactions as stated in some of its internal system's articles? 

Answer: All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of The Worlds, and may His peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad and upon all of his family and companions.

After thorough study of the internal system of the aforementioned association, it turns out that some of its articles compel the subscriber to deal with usurious transactions with the association itself in some cases and to make life insurance in order to regain what been paid by the association on behalf of the subscriber. And Allah Knows Best.

Summarized Fatawaa

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.

How should I be kind to my atheist father?

Allah, The Exalted, has decreed that we be kind to our parents, even if they are polytheists, by honoring and obeying them in all that isn`t sinful, so that they might love Islam and embrace it as a result.

What is the ruling on not fulfilling a vow?

A vow is a commitment towards Allah, The Almighty, and so, it should be observed as much as possible, and it is impermissible to take it lightly. Allah, The Exalted, says –in commending the believers-: “(Because) they perform the vow and fear a day whereof the evil is wide-spreading,”{Al-Insan/7}.

Is Zakah(obligatory charity) due on the money saved for marriage?
