Assalamu Alaykum,

There are some weather sites on the internet which forecast the weather that is expected in the next 5-10 days. Is it permissible for ua to visit them? I am asking this question because I am afraid that they may be claiming to have knowledge of the unseen or it may be a kind of astrology, in which case it is haraam for us to visit these sites.

Dua me yaad

Wassalam

Assalamu Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

It is permissible. Weather forecasts are not claims to the Al-Ghayb (unseen) but just a forecast according to the satellite pictures and other aids.

We all know how often the weather is "forecasted" incorrectly so patently it is merely an educated guess.

And Allah knows Best
Wa Alaykumussalaam Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh
