Fatwa of ACJU regarding “Super Muslim Ideology”

Many signs of the Final Hour have been mentioned in the Quran and Ahadith, some explicitly and others briefly. It would be sufficient to accept them and believe in them in the manner stated (without delving into detail). The Companions of the Prophet (PBUH), those who followed them, and the Imams have believed in them and accepted them as is, and propagated the same to the others. It is a major sin to digress from this principle, which has been preserved for more than 1400 years, and delve into the matter based on one's own rationale; thereby neglecting the Islamic Sources of Knowledge, regarding the rationale of one individual as religion, and creating a confusion in Islam by propagating the same to others. The questions that you have raised aligns to the views of those who accept the thoughts of Sheikh Imran Hussain (Trinidad). His views contradict many of the Quranic verses as well as authentic Ahadith, and differ from most of the opinions of the religious scholars.

Religious clarification regarding the burial of those deceased and the legal aspects in Islam

Accordingly, all four of the Islamic authoritative sources: Al Quran, Al Hadith, Al Ijmaa', and Al Qiyaas clearly imply that the body of a dead person needs to be buried into the earth. Verses in the Quran that prescribe burial: 1. مِنْهَا خَلَقْنَاكُمْ وَفِيهَا نُعِيدُكُمْ وَمِنْهَا نُخْرِجُكُمْ تَارَةً أُخْرَىٰ ( سورة طه : 55) “From the earth We created you, and into it We will return you, and from it We will extract you another time.” (20:55) In the above verse, by stating that, after you are dead “We will return you” to the earth, Allah emphasizes the fact that, those who are deceased should be placed in the Earth. The following verse clarifies the same: 2. قَالَ فِيْهَا تَحْيَوْنَ وَفِيْهَا تَمُوْتُوْنَ وَمِنْهَا تُخْرَجُوْن (سورة الأعراف : 25) “He added, “There you will live, there you will die, and from there you will be resurrected.” (Quran, Al Ar’af: 25)

Fatwa by The All Ceylon Jammiyyathul Ulama regarding the views, speeches, activities of the suspected mastermind behind the Easter Sunday Attacks, Zahran Hashim and the state of those attracted by his opinions.

The Holy Quran expressly states that under no circumstance can one take the life of an innocent. The above Quranic verses highlight the fact that Allahu Ta’aala has sent the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) as a person of compassion to this world, and also explain that Islam condemns extremism, and exhorts moderation at all times. and not to be unfair with others. Islam prohibits suicide, categorizing it as a grave sin and has also warned that those who engage in it will have to face harsh punishment in the hereafter. This has been confirmed in more than 40 Hadiths. Islam exhorts Muslims to follow the law of the land, and does not permit individuals to take the law into their own hands. It is evident that as at present, there are certain misguided individuals claiming to be Muslims across the world who have been brainwashed, espousing extremist and violent ideologies that are totally against Islam, resulting in Islamophobia across the world. The All Ceylon Jammiyyathul Ulama with other Muslim organizations, collectively declared on 2015.07.23 that there is no connection between extremist ideologies and Islam. [2] The Fatwas of international Fatwa bodies also state accordingly. We unreservedly condemned the dastardly attacks on Easter Sunday, 2019.04.21, carried out by Zaharan Hashim and his accomplices, which resulted in deaths and injury to innocents, and the desecration and destruction of churches and hotels. Further, we released a fatwa to reject the janazas of the suicide bombers and not give them an Islamic burial.[3] Zaharan Hashim and his extremist accomplices had misquoted the Quranic verses and Hadith. There is no warrant either in the Holy Quran or the Hadith to justify their dastardly acts. In fact, we have clarified this position in the book titled ‘NO EXTREMISM IN THE NAME OF RELIGION’, published by us in collaboration with The Department of Muslim Religious and Cultural Affairs.[4] We urge all Muslims to be vigilant and observant at all times to guard against extremism in order to safeguard the community and our Motherland.

Religious clarification with regard to cremating the body of a Muslim Covid-19 victim

If a Muslim passes away it is Fardh Kifaayah upon the Muslims to bathe the body, enshroud (kafn) it, conduct the prayers, and bury it in a dignified manner at a cemetery of the Muslims. If any of these rites are not performed, all of the Muslims are bounded guilty in the court of Allah for not fulfilling the religious obligations.
