as-Salaam 'alaykum wa-Rahmatullaahe wa-Barakaatuhu,

 

Fatwa-Online is pleased to present the "FatwaBase"(i) in HTML HELP (file extension .CHM)(ii) format for the first time.

 

The driving concept behind this publication is to equip the Muslims with direct access to the statements of the Senior Scholars of our time in issues concerning our everyday lives. Whether you choose to visit us online or refer to this publication, the choice is now entirely yours.

 

Therefore, on a regular basis, we shall be updating the "FatwaBase" and making it available for FREE download, complete with all the latest fataawa we have published online.

 

Much time and effort has gone into preparing this publication for FREE distribution and hence it is anticipated it will prove to be of immense value to the Muslims, inshaa.-Allaah. Therefore, whoever finds any typographical mistake(s) in the following work, then please write to me (at my email address) indicating the mistake(s) and its place.

 

{Our Lord! Punish us not if we forget or fall into error...}, [Soorah al-Baqarah, Aayah 286]

 

I thank all those who will point out these mistakes with the intention of seeking Allaah's Pleasure, and of correcting this publication. Indeed, Allaah is Surety over what I say.

 

May Allaah humble us all to make this effort pure, seeking His Face alone. Certainly to Him is our return.

 

{Our Lord accept from us, certainly you are the All-Hearing and All-Knowing}, [Soorah al-Baqarah, Aayah 127]

 

{Our Lord forgive me and my parents, and the believers on the Day when the reckoning will be established}, [Soorah Ibraaheem, Aayah 41]

 

«With the assistance of Allaah the Most High, and all Praise be to Allaah by whose favour good works are accomplished», [Ibn as-Sunnee in A'maal al-Yawm wal-Laylah; al-Haakim declared it Saheeh 1/499; al-Albaanee declared it Saheeh in Saheeh al-Jaami' 4/201]
