I have a friend, he is a Pharmacy student, and one of their requirements in a subject is to ferment wine and after several months they will be tasting it to affirm the proper mixture. We dont like to be cursed by the Prophet sallaAllahu alayhi wa sa ...

AsSalaamu alaikum, I bought a portable personal stereo (walkman) so that I could listen to lectures while walking, traveling etc. After a while, I noticed that the plug which connects the headphones to the stereo is gold plated, since this is a better conductor. I have since that time stopped using this stereo. I was fearful that this may fall under the prohibition of men wearing gold, because it could be argued that the headphones are an item that is worn. The plug is small and not visible. Am ...

I have a question which has been puzzling my mind for some time. In America and some European countries, they are trying manufacture a type of car which does not need a driver behind the wheel. It will be driven by an onboard computer, so the driver can relax and even sleep during the journey. My question is: In case of an accident - and accidents will occure - who is going to be blamed?

Allah says: “Then We made the Nutfah into a clot (a piece of thick coagulated blood), then We made the clot into a little lump of flesh, then We made out of that little lump of flesh bones, then We clothed the bones with flesh, and then We brought it forth as another creation. So blessed be Allah, the Best of creators.” [23:14] There seems to be a scientific error in this verse. According to modern embryologists including Professor Moore, the tissue from which bone originates - known as ...

Allah says: “So let man see from what he is created. He is created from a water gushing forth - proceeding from between the backbone and the ribs” [Sûrah al-Târiq: 5-7] This verse states that sperm originates from between the ribs and the spine. The problem is that it is a known fact sperm is created in the testicles. What is more disturbing is that this same idea was espoused in ancient Greece by Hippocrates about 1100 years before the time of Muhammad (peace be upon him). Please ...

In the Holy Qur’ân it says: "It is He who created the night, the day, the sun and the moon. Each one is traveling in an orbit with its own motion." [Sûrah al-Anbiyâ’: 33]. As we all know, the Sun is in a settled position. This seems to contradict to the above verse. I am looking forward to your explanation. Thank you.

Does the Qur’ân teach us that the Earth was created first and then the heavens were created? Would this not contradict with our current scientific knowledge?

Dear Sheikhs - may Allah reward you all. Is it allowed, if a Qur'anic verse conflicts with a known scientific fact, to make that verse a metaphorical "majazi" verse? If so, who would then be responsible to make that interpretation?

What is black hole in the universe? Some people say that it is Hell and that the fire inside it is has been burning for billions of years. Is it possible that a black hole is the location of Hell?

Does islam encourage people to study the various fields of scientific knowledge or does it only encourage the study of Islamic sciences?

I am a science student, and at the moment I am doing a course in gene expression. During the course, we are sacrificing animals. We are injecting mice with viruses and bateria in order to make observation on their immune responses. Later, we kill the mice. My question is what does Islam say regarding research done on animals, especially higher organisms like mice and rabbits, when those experiments causes suffering or injury to the animals?

I have to do a pig dissection for my Biology class, and even though we will be using latex gloves, I am not sure if we are allowed to touch or handle the pig fetus. Please advise me on this matter. I really appreciate your guidance. Thank you.

Is philosophy a prohibited science in Islamic Law? Is it true that Abû Hanîfah said that if you see a philosopher, you should beat him?

Is it true that that the Earth is static and not moving? We are taught in our science courses that the Earth is rotating on its axis and revolving around the Sun.

I heard that Ibn Taymiyah made statements to the effect that the Earth is round. Doesn’t the Qur’ân indicate in many places that the Earth is flat, as mentioned by Ibn Kathîr, since it describes the Earth with the words sutihat and muddat? I am referring especially to Sûrah al-Ghâshiyah, verse 20 and Sûrah al-Ra`d, verse 3. What was Ibn Taymiyah’s reason back then for believing the Earth is round? Where was his proof from the Qur’ân and Sunnah? Back then, there could be no other pr ...

Al-Salam-`alaykum. I read a fatwâ purportedly by the Sheikh Ibn Bâz (may Allah forgive him) wherein he said: "The Earth is flat. Whoever claims it is round is an atheist deserving of punishment." Sheikh Ibn Bâz was one of the greatest scholars of today. However, I do not understand this fatwâ. Please explain it to me.

My question is about the Arabic word dahâ, which according to the translations I have read means "to spread out" or "a vast expanse". A prominent caller to Islam has recently suggested the meaning "egg" or "ostrich egg" for the same word. He says that the Qur'an teaches us the Earth is egg-shaped and goes further to say that this claim is supported by science. Is there a possibility that this word dahâ could mean "egg" or "shaped like an e ...

Al-Salam-`alaikum. Allah says: "When they were too arrogant to [desist from] what they had been forbidden, We said to them, 'Be you apes, humiliated'" [7:166]. In a hadith, the Prophet (peace be upon him) says: "There shall be groups of people from my community who shall consider fornication, silk, wine, and musical instruments to be lawful: groups shall camp beside a high mountain, whom a shepherd returning to in the evening with one of their herds shall approach for some ...
