For about a year I have been giving dawah to people in my town and teens from my high school. I’m the only one who has converted to Islam and not a single person to my knowledge has accepted Islam and became Muslim from hearing even though they see my dawah and me posting Islamic content on social media. I feel sad and hurt. You’d think at least a few people would accept. Any advice?
ANSWER: It is our duty to give dawah but the results are in Allah’s hands. The prophet salla Allahu alaihi wa sallam had told us that on the day of judgment, there will be a prophet with great followings, a prophet with little following and a prophet with one or two men following him and […]Read more

I saw a video of a man who showed a living camel the body of another dead camel who was slaughtered for Eid. I told my baba that the meat is Haram since animals shouldn’t see their own type slaughter. However I fear speaking without knowledge, and I fear Allah for saying such a statement and saying “it’s haram.” Can you clarify what the man did was haram or Makrooh?
ANSWER: You have indeed spoken without knowledge! The meat doesn’t become haram but it’s against the etiquette of slaughtering to slaughter an animal in front of other animals like this but definitely the meat is halal!Read more
ANSWER: No, they won’t get the reward if they’re against it.Read more
Sheikh, I want to start a workshop in my masjid about praying as per sunnah. As I’m not a scholar, so I want to convince the imam & team up with him. If the initiative gets successful then will go to other masjids. I want to do it for the sake of Allah but getting whispers of shaytan about showing off. I’m confused. What should I do? Pls advise.
ANSWER: This is an excellent thing to do providing you are knowledgable of what you are preaching and not just blindly following someone without proper knowledge from the Sunnah.Read more

Sheikh usually uses the verse 5:3 (deen completed) as evidence against bid’ah. Sheikh also says “did the sahaba etc do it(particular bid’ah)”. Isn’t there a contradiction between the 2 since all salaf came after that day? I give dawah to innovators and this verse would make a big difference if I no longer had this confusion.
ANSWER: You shouldn’t give dawah until you know your religion and study it well. The prophet salla Allahu alaihi wa sallam said: abide by my sunnah and the sunnah of the rightly guided caliphs. And he also told us that the best of generations are his own generation (the companions), the tab’een and the tab’ee […]Read more
How to deal with a relative who sends a lot of long Islamic texts? I say Jazakallahukhayran every now and then, but my father who is less religious feels irritated (possibly religiously inferior) by this person. I know my beard makes him feel this sometimes. I also feel inferior sometimes when someone with higher iman lectures me.
ANSWER: There’s no need to feel inferior. You must work hard to reach higher level of iman. Rejecting truth and feeling this way about Islamic knowledge is a very negative sign of hypocrisy.Read more
Sheikh, sometimes we donate money to some Madrasa or Islamic School etc. understanding that these institutions are providing education, food, shelter to orphan students. We don’t feel the necessity to verify their actual condition, syllabus or Aqeedah etc. Is these an appropriate approach of donating? Or should we verify their actual conditions?
ANSWER: You must definitely verify about their aqeedah before donating. It’s not permissible to donate to institutes that have corrupt aqeedah.Read more
