One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:

Shold one eat at such person`s home or from such earning, support him. Are there any quranic verses which says not to support such a person.

Answer:

 

Astrlogy support eat

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

 

Your Question: my uncle is into the feng sui profession. it predicts future, tells which direction to sleep, what symbols to keep for prosperity-health. Is this ok as per islam.

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 31 Surah Luqman verse 34:

34 Verily the knowledge of the Hour is with Allah (Alone). It is He Who sends down rain and He Who knows what is in the wombs. Nor does anyone know what it is that he will earn on the morrow: nor does anyone know in what land he is to die. Verily with Allah is full knowledge and He is acquainted (with all things)

 

Dear and Beloved Brother, it is the ardent belief of the believers that none knows anything about the future except the All-Knowing, All-Wise Allah Subhanah, The Creator and Sustainer of the Worlds. Allah is our witness brother, if anyone in creation claims to know or predict the future, know with conviction that the person is nothing more than a manifest liar!


 

The much-acclaimed feng shui is a self-concocted, baseless, and utter falsehood which has beguiled many people who do not believe in the Divine Decree and Absolute Power of Allah Subhanah! The so-called knowledge of feng shui is nothing more than the conjectures, whims, and fancies of the ignorant and does not contain even an iota of truth!

 

To believe in feng-shui, or astrology, or palmistry or any other self-invented format or method which claims to predict the future or bring about prosperity in ones health or wealth is absolutely against the Guidance of the Quran and the Sunnah; and in almost all forms such belief is tantamount to the abomination of shirk!

 

Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 8.232 Narrated by Aisha

Some people asked Allah's Messenger (saws) about the fore-tellers. Allah's Messenger (saws) said to them, "They are nothing! (i.e., liars)."

 

The architecture or structure of a place, the position of its furniture and fixtures, the direction one sits or sleeps, etc. have absolutely nothing to do with ones prosperity or health! Prosperity and adversity, good and evil, health and wealth, life and death and every condition one experiences in ones life is no more than a test ordained for man by their Lord and Creator, and He Alone has Absolute and Total Power and Control over all things. If The Lord wishes Mercy on someone, no combination in creation can withhold His Mercy; and if the Lord wishes to test one amongst His creation with an affliction, no combination in creation can remove the affliction except Him Alone! Such is the Absolute and Total Control, Power, and Strength of the Lord Most Gracious, Most High!

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 10 Surah Yunus verses 106-107:

And do not call besides Allah, any being that can neither do you any good nor any harm. For if you will do so, you shall be one of the doers of wrong. If Allah afflicts you with a calamity, there is none to remove it, but He Himself. Likewise, if Allah wills to bestow a favor on you, there is none to withhold Allahs Bounty. He bestows His bounty on anyone of His servants He wills. And He is The Forgiving, The Merciful.

 

Your Question: Shold one eat at such person`s home or from such earning, support him.

If one is of the knowledge and knows with conviction that the complete earnings of the person is earned from selling the falsehood of feng-shui, then it would indeed be prudent to avoid being entertained at such a persons home. But if the person has other earnings which are legal, the food one consumes at their hands will be considered of the halaal earnings and the burden of the haraam earnings will be on the person who earns it.

 

Your Question: Are there any quranic verses which says not to support such a person.

To the best of our knowledge there is no specific verse in the Glorious Quran which prohibits the believers from supporting a person who engages in earning from feng-shui or fortune tellingbut the general law and principle in Islam is to co-operate and support one another in deeds and acts of righteousness and piety, and abstain from participating or supporting acts and deeds of sin and rancor.

 

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 5 Surah Maidah verse 2:

Help ye one another in righteousness and piety but help ye not one another in sin and rancor: fear Allah: for Allah is strict in punishment.

 

If by supporting or helping such a person, one is hopeful that the person could be brought to fear his Lord Creator and made to realize the enormity of his sin so that he could save himself from it, there is absolutely no harm in supporting such a person. But under no circumstances should a believer, who sincerely fears Allah and the Last Day, must do anything that supports the propagation or distribution of falsehood.

 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.

 

 

Your brother and well wisher in Islam,

 

Burhan
