Uthaimeen on Whether a Child Born with An Extra Finger on Each Hand Can Have it Amputated

March 29, 2013 § Leave a comment


Shaikh Uthaimeen, may Allaah have mercy on him, said, “If a child is born with six fingers on each hand it is permissible to amputate the extra finger, but some of the people of knowledge stated that it is forbidden justifying that by the fact that it is feared that a person whose fingers are amputated would die from bleeding, [but] this justification is disproved in the present age, and thus it is permissible to amputate the extra finger. Similarly, if there were extra flesh in the ear or the head or knee, removing it is permissible.”

Tafseer Surah Aali-’Imraan, pp. 29-30.

Uthaimeen on Beasts of Prey, Vermin and the Devils

March 15, 2013 § Leave a comment


Shaikh Uthaimeen, may Allaah have mercy on him, said, “There is no doubt there is evil/harm in predatory animals, vermin which bite and sting and the devils, but Allaah’s creation of these evil/harmful things is not evil but pure good and wisdom necessitates this [fact], because it is not possible for you to know the perfection of Allaah’s Power except through the creation of things opposite in nature, additionally by creating these things there is much good in terms of the rectification of the servant and [his] turning back to his Lord and seeking refuge with Him from these evil/harmful things–and good is only known by its opposites.” Tafsir Surah Aali-Imraan, vol. 1, p. 159.

Uthaimeen Asked Whether The Presence of Dust is a Condition for Tayammum

March 8, 2013 § Leave a comment


Shaikh Uthaimeen, may Allaah have mercy on him, was asked, “Does the performance of Tayammum with the earth require that there be dust?” He replied, “According to the most correct opinion, tayammum with the earth does not require dust because Allaah, the Most High, said, ‘… then seek clean earth and wipe over your faces and your hands [with it],’ [Nisaa 4:43] and this is general [and applicable] to all times, and it is known that people who are travelling may be on sandy land which is not dusty … they may be present at a time of rain and when the earth is wet and so there won’t be any dust.  So what is correct is that dust is not a condition.”
