As-Salaam `Alaykum. Dear scholars. Is it permissible to consider the DNA test as a legal proof to establish paternity and prove crimes such as Zina? Can the DNA be used as an independent proof? Can it be put in the same category of witnesses? Please answer my queries as this issue has triggered wide debate among our Muslim community.
Wa`alaykum As-Salaam Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh.
In The Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.
"How is it possible for one to love two (or more) people at the same time?". That's may be some people thought about polygamy. They doubt about the issue of polygamy in Islam. They believe the idea that God created one mate for each person, just as Adam had his Eve, and believe of true love or loyalty and love for one person.
"How can a husband love more than one wife while his heart has (or should have) room for only one?", some people claim of that. In fact, this claim may not be true, because when a parent, for example, has more than one child, does he or she love only the first child? The answer is "no." Parents do in fact love all of their children; so, such a parent does love the second child just as he or she loves the first one. Yes, a parent may love one of his or her children more than the others, but ultimately, this parent will always have a place in the heart for every one of his or her children.
In Muslim countries, celebrating the Prophet's birthday (maulid Nabi) is a routine event. The Prophet's birthday celebration (maulid Nabi) is usually filled with a narrative about the life of Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, and we got some great lessons from that event.
But how we suppose to do if we live in a non-Muslim country and want to introduce the Prophet, peace be upon him, and his message of mercy to the Muslims as well as non-Muslims?
In the next few days, 12th of Rabi'ul Awwal, Muslims in all over the world will celebrate the birth anniversary (Maulid) of Prophet Muhammad (SAW), the best of creations and mercy to the worlds.
But there are some scholars disagree about celebrating the Prophet's birthday (Maulid), they said it is an improper innovation and forbid its celebration.
I have encountered this question many times from non-Muslims: What will be the destiny of people who live in remote places like the Arctic Circle, and have never heard about Islam and die as a non-Muslims. Will they go to Hell?
Allah tell us in the Qur’an, “We are not in the habit of punishing a nation until We have sent a messenger” to them (see al-Qur’an: 17:15) bidding them of what they must be doing and forbidding them of what they must be refraining from.

Umar ibn Abdul Aziz mengatakan: "Amalan yang tidak didasarkan atas ilmu, maka kerusakan yang ia timbulkan lebih banyak dari kebaikan".
Thariqah (tarekat) yang belakangan ini banyak digandrungi oleh masyarakat kita sebagai sarana untuk mendekatkan diri kepada Allah adalah sebuah amalan yang baik, namun bila tarekat itu dilakukan tanpa didasari ilmu yang benar maka seseorang akan mudah terjerumus. Dan e-book ini akan menerangkan agar sebelum kita melakukan suatu amalan maka sebaiknya kita terlebih dahulu mengetahui ilmunya sehingga tidak 'tersesat'.
