Morality of this

I have read that scholars allow pre pubescent intercourse if they can bear it:
وأكثر المشايخ على أنه ‌لا ‌عبرة ‌للسن في هذا الباب وإنما العبرة للطاقة إن كانت ضخمة سمينة تطيق الرجال ولا يخاف عليها المرض من ذلك؛ كان للزوج أن يدخل بها، وإن لم تبلغ تسع سنين، وإن كانت نحيفة مهزولة لا تطيق الجماع ويخاف عليها المرض لا يحل للزوج أن يدخل بها، وإن كبر سنها وهو الصحيح


الفتاوى الهندية، المطبعة الكبرى الأميرية، ج1 ص287


The majority of scholars say that age doesn’t matter. What matters is the ability. If she’s big and fat, can endure men and cannot fall ill from it (sex), then the husband can consummate his marriage even if she’s not nine years old yet. But if she’s thin and weak, and can’t endure intercourse, and can fall ill from it, then the husband isn’t allowed to consummate his marriage even if she’s old. This is the correct view.

and I understood that due to changing times, scholars do not allow it and early marriage generally. So I ask this: If I believe it is immoral to consummate with someone 8-12 even if they can physically bear it, am I sinful? Scholars today do not allow it so am I sinful to believe it is immoral?

A curse

Salam. I have a query related to a saying by my In Laws according to
which the daughter in laws of the family CANNOT wear Black dress/Scarf as it
was prohibited to them generations ago by some Wali/Baba. the reasons behind
was given that wearing black by Daughter in laws could result in extremely
bad consequences for the family i.e. death. As it happened with 2 Uncles of
my husband whose wives wore black dresses at some point after which they died
( not the same time but later on in life died due to some disease) Now this
curse of wearing black dress is extremely serious and my mother in law
considers this actually true as it was passed down by her Mother in law (my
husbands Grandmother). upon inquiry about WHY wearing black was forbidden
there is no answer except for the elders said not to wear as it has bad
consequences so we dont and we never asked why. My question is What is
the islamic point of view in this. Ofcourse i respect Wali/SOME Baba who has
ILM but i am not sure about such thing relevance in Islam. Please guide on
this matter.
Jazak Allah

On the principle : “Certainty is not overruled by Doubt” which fatwa is certainty?

Assalamualaikum

I choose to believe one fatwa and then later have doubts because I found another fatwa with a greater weight of evidence but have not yet chosen to believe it.

In such cases, which fatwa is considered "certainty" and which fatwa is considered "doubtful"?

Dream Interpretation

As-SalamWalaikum Mufti Sahib
My question involves interpretation of dreams but let me give you a little background. Several months ago I became unemployed from my tech job as a result of economic conditions in the industry. I've been taking the time to catch up on some personal projects and reinvesting myself spiritually and catching up on reading Quran. I wanted to note that just a few days before I was informed I would be released from my job I had a dream in which I was given the impression that I was unemployed and didn't report into my team. I woke up feeling like I was actually unemployed but in reality I hadn't been told yet. Then a few days later I was informed. I was not sure what to make of that except to believe it was a sign from Allah SWT. Since then, I've been applying for multiple roles in my industry and recently I had two dreams which I'm hoping you can help explain. In the first dream I see a white spider weaving a white web. In the dream I'm just observing it and then wake up. In the second dream I see I'm laying in bed and being approached by women who then form a circle around me. I've looked these up online in multiple places but would appreciate if you could help me interpret them. Jazakullah Khair

Consent of concubines

I have been researching slavery in Islam in hopes of trying to understand it better. I understand it is abolished now but I have a few questions regarding concubinage.

1.Was the female slave master able to force her into a marriage contract without her consent?

2. Could he acquire a married slave and force her to get a divorce?

I had a vision of a young girl?

so I was minding my business in my room, when I suddenly saw a vision of young girl, she was very young maybe 10 or 11 and she was light brown complexation, I thought she was really pretty, she was gone as fast she came though. I have never had a vision like this in my life before but she appeared right in front of my eyes like I was seeing a real person. something told me it was Aisha but I don't think Aisha was brown but I could be wrong though.
Does this have an significance or should I just ignore it?

Evil / Demons affecting me again

I need to ask a thing regarding how demons can affect one's life. I had suffered from black magic issues from almost 23 years, had a Ruqyah / exorcism done almost 2 months back, not just of me but also of my family's and things started to get better and i even got a job and moved to a different city. But last night, I woke up before Fajr, turned the torch on of my phone and i don't know what happened but I got kinda unconscious when immediately I saw a witch near me just like one i saw years ago, I came to senses then and literally screamed and almost threw my phone at her that dropped down but i was so scared to even grab it up. I wanna know if there is any possibility that evil things may come back to me even after Ruqyah (because what I always felt like I am a gateway for them, even one was living inside of me that was removed). Please let me know because if it started happening again, I my lose my patience to deal with it this time, suggest some viable things for recitation or either I should go get it checked again. I am currently in Islamabad, Pakistan.

Does contributing to an emergency family fund count as Zakat / Sadaqa

We have a family fund within our extended family. The fund is designed to be a collection in case someone in the family requires that money unexpectedly (e.g. sudden death of the main bread-winner).

The rules of the fund are that everyone contributes what they can. The money may only be dispersed amongst family members. Alhamdulillah, nobody in the family currently requires this money. The fund is accumulating and the target is $100,000 USD.

Does contributing to such a fund count as Zakat or Sadaqa? Or should this be treated like a savings account for the family and be separated from one's obligatory donations?

Rights of Neighbors and Animals

Asalamu'alykum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakaatuh

Dear Shaikh,
For quite a while my family have been feeding stray cats in our garden as a means of reward, having listened to many stories about kindness towards animals we thought it could be a means of jannah for us, up until recently we have not had any issues from our neighbors, we have only recently been made aware that these stray cats have been leaving excrement in their gardens. The neighbors have told us to stop feeding them as it is causing them annoyance having to clean the waste. If we stopped feeding them then they would potentially stop coming to the area, although that isn't certain as others might also be feeding them.

We were wondering how to tackle this, do we listen to our neighbors and completely stop feeding the cats or do we continue to feed them and continue to gain reward as there is no point stopping as others might also feed them?

Are these fixed-fee loan terms halal or shariah compliant?

Assalamu'alaikum,

I am a therapist and have started my own practice. Alhamdulillah I can finally sustain my monthly business costs but growth is slow as I do not have enough capital to advertise/expand to at least contribute to my personal financial targets. I'm facing either further investment into my business (via a loan) or closure. I have been offered a loan with a "fixed fee" and these are the known terms: 1) The fixed fee is a percentage of the loan amount (10% or less); 2) The actual loan amount and fixed fee will vary (based on loan amount) but there is no interest rate, no other costs after the loan is disbursed; 3) The loan must be repaid within a specified time-frame (e.g., 1 year). Is this loan truly interest-free and/or halal?

Is betel nut haram?

Salam alaikum,

Is betel nut haram? The World Health Organization, the Journal of the American Dental Association, the American Society for Clinical Nutrition, and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration have linked this substance with several incurable conditions, addiction, reproductive issues, and oral cancer (Source: https://www.healthline.com/health/betel-nut-dangers#cancer-risk ). 

Modern medical research proves that this incredibly harmful, thus eating or chewing it would be an act of causing harm to one's self. Does this make eating or chewing betel nut haram?
