Darul Uloom Deoband has issued yet another edict (Fatwa) after visuals of Muslim women performing ‘Aarti’ of Lord Ram went viral after Diwali.
The new Fatwa from the influential Islamic seminary asserted that anyone from community who worships anyone else other than Allah, will automatically get rejected from Islam. The fatwa was issued on Saturday.
This fatwa comes closely after yet another fatwa where in Muslims had been advised not to post pictures of on any social media platform like WhatsApp, Facebook while terming it ‘un-Islamic’.
Justifying the move, Shahnawaz Qadri, Darul Uloom Deoband, said, ”Unnecessary uploading of pictures on social media is wrong. Fatwa of Darul Uloom Deoband is appropriate.
The seminary issued the fatwa days after a person submitted a written question to Darul Iftaa, asking it to explain whether posting pictures of himself or his wife on Facebook and Whatsapp was un-Islamic or not. In the wake of this query came the fatwa saying that Islam doesn’t allow the act.>
