I've seen cakes and biscuits being baked and eaten especially in the Barelwi school.

Is this something you have been involved in too?

Please don't do it!



Quote:
Cakes & biscuits in the form of Quran & Ayats written on it – Is this permissible?

Question:

Salaam,

I wanted to ask if the following is permissible or a form of great disrespect as it is cut & then eaten:

1) To make Tasbeeh, Qur’aan, Ka’bah etc. out of icing?

2) To make cakes / biscuits in the form of Quran, bukhari shareef, kabah etc

3) To write hadiths & Quranic ayahs on cakes & biscuits.

Answer:

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

The Quran, Ka’ba, Hadith, and all things related to Deen deserve the utmost respect and reverence. Allah Taala mentions in The Holy Quran:

وَمَنْ يُعَظِّمْ شَعَائِرَ اللَّهِ فَإِنَّهَا مِنْ تَقْوَى الْقُلُوبِ (سورة الحج:32)

Translation: The one who honors the symbols of Allah, then such things emanate from the piety of the hearts.

Baking cakes and biscuits resembling The Quran, Ka’ba, etc. is clearly against the honor of the salient symbols of Deen. Cakes and biscuits are eaten, digested, and become impurities.

Accordingly, it is disrespectful to bake cakes and biscuits in the form of the Quran, Ka’ba, etc., and to write the verses of The Quran and Hadith on cakes and biscuits. Therefore, it is strongly advised that baking, buying, and selling such cakes and biscuits should be avoided.

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best.

Checked and Approved by,
Mufti Ebrahim Desai



Please don't do it even though there are conflicting answers from others, for example: www.seekerspath.co.uk/question-bank/foodanddrink/q-id0590...

Is seekers path a Barelwi website?

Are the scholars shown on their Barelwi?

EDIT: It's not a mixed site. They have two Barelwi (aka Sunni) scholars)

The reason I asked is because you put two fatwas on your original post. If there are two reliable Muftis giving different views then the public can follow whosoever they want right?

By the way as far as I remember I don't think I've ever ate an 'Islamic symbol cake.'

Just seen this.

If it's a Barelwi site then personally I would most likely avoid their fatwas.

Apologies, I mistook it for seekersguidence which has a mixture of scholars.

Seekerspath scholars are www.seekerspath.co.uk/meet-the-scholars/
(I just happened to come across it when I was looking for an image to share, and that site provided the image and their opposing opinion)

The point is, I've seen normal (Muslim owned) bakeries selling these cakes and any random person will go in and buy these things. So if they are aware that it shouldn't be made/sold/eaten then it's an accomplishment.

If they know of people who make or eat these items, they can also warn them.

A difference in fatwa is fair, but sometimes even a person with logic would be able to see the reasons why certain answers don't hold any value.

Then it's up to the individual.
