Abstract

ABSTRACT:

Fatwas have always been of great importance not only to Muslims but to all humanity. It help’s in guiding the religious and secular affairs of the people, and setting the right path, but we have noticed in recent times that some fatwas has been creating Crisis in the Islamic Ummah, it has become a cause of trouble instead of mercy. What are the reasons for this we would find out in this article and more as well. I took care in this research about all the perspectives of fatwa and through it I talked about the meaning of fatwa in vernacular and understanding about the etiquette of the mufti and the questions asking by them and about problems that fatwas are facing in now-a-days. And during the research I also talked about referendums of some sheikhs on social media without giving any reference about Dar Al Ifta. I also highlighted the multiple of fatwa sources especially those who claim knowledge. I also discussed about the factors due to which fatwas can change and showed the negative effects of fatwa problems. The importance of tolerance in fatwa would be highlighted.

This is the human effort, and perfection is only belong to Allah alone, and if this research is done in the best way, then Allah Almighty is the successor for that.
