The Messenger of Allâh (sallallâhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam) said: “Fast due to its sighting (i.e the new moon for the month of Ramaḍân) and break your fast due to its sighting. If it is hidden from you then complete the time (of the month of Sh`abān) as thirty days.” (Bukhāri and Muslim)
Imam Ibn Bāz (may Allâh have mercy upon him) said concerning the above ḥadīth:
The meaning of this speech is: That which is obligatory is that they (the Muslims) fast due to the sighting of the crescent and they break their fast due to the sighting of the crescent. It is not for them to fast based upon the calculations nor due to precautionary measures. It’s a must (that the fast starts) from the sighting (of the new moon) or the completion of the time (for the month of Sh`abān). Continue reading →

A question Abu Yusuf Khaleefah posed to Shaykh Mustafaa Mubrim (may Allah preserve him) today:
Shaykh, I work in a hospital and there are Muslim patients here. Today the administration had food cooked for the patients for an early Thanksgiving celebration. Being that Thanksgiving is really next week and not today, can the Muslims eat from this food?
The Shaykh answered:
No. It is not allowed for the Muslims to eat from this food since it has been cooked for the reason of celebrating Thanksgiving. The major scholars like Shaykh Saalih and others have fataawa regarding the prohibition of eating from the food that has been prepared for the celebration of the holidays of the kuffaar. If you eat from that food, this means you have joined with them in the celebration of the holiday.
Abu Yusuf then asked the Shaykh (may Allah preserve him):
What about the leftover food? For example, can they eat from that food tomorrow, after the celebration is over? Continue reading →
