I am always confused about the faal

Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,

As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.  (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)

 

One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:

I am always confused about the faal. i dont konw what is the correct name in english but every one calls it ( Faal ) .

There is a person who tells the answers of everyone`s questions through doing Faal.

 

like :-

- will you be happy to get marriage with that girl or not

- will you go to abroad or not

- has someone done black magic on you or not

 

------------------

 

I want to ask one more question about QTV Pakistani Tv CHANNEL. There is a Tv channel which is being watched by most of our islamic brohters and sisters. everyone make phone call and tell to ALIM SAHIB to do istikhara right now and give us the answer that what should i do now.

 

I tell you some part of that program which is telecast by qtv channel.

 

some one asked that do istkhara for me that why i am ill from several months or why i am not getting job or why my hasband is not talking to me from several years or there are lot of questions which is ask by muslim people. but the question is this that how that ALIM SAHIB give the answers very quickly. that some one has done black magic on you and i will do something against by QURAN. and you daily recite these QURAN SOORAH.

 

I know that in istikhara we get the answer from ALLAH PAK of our questions in our dreams.

 

but is this in islam that a person who can do istkhara for us in few moment without sleeping.

 

Or is this correct to tell anybody to do istikhara for me. like in our area there is FEMALE ALIMA SAHIBA. WHO DOES ISTIKHARA FOR EVERYBODY.

Answer:

 

Istakhara for others

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 Statement: I am always confused about the faal. i dont konw what is the correct name in english but every one calls it ( Faal ) .

There is a person who tells the answers of everyone`s questions through doing Faal.

The Glorious Quran was revealed by Allah Subhanah as a Book of Guidance and not as a recipe to foretell or find out what the future holds for one in regards to worldly or personal matters like business, commerce, marriage, etc. Allah has bestowed man with intelligence and the power of reasoning, and one must use his intelligence, wisdom and experience in determining the path that is best suited to him in these matters.

 

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

34 Verily the knowledge of the Hour is with Allah (Alone). It is He Who sends down rain and it is He (Alone) 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).

 

It is absolutely misguidance to determine ones future in worldly matters by randomly opening a page of the Quran or faal! The people who open these so-called faals and the people who solicit their future from such unscrupulous scholars, both are in sin and will be held severely accountable in the Court of Allah Subhanah!

 

There is absolutely no truth to the process of faal or any other device or mechanism which the ignorant people use to determine their future..the future is known to absolutely none save Allah Subhanah Aloneand all the devices and mechanisms the ignorant use to determine their future are absolutely worthless, baseless, and useless.

 

but is this in islam that a person who can do istkhara for us in few moment without sleeping.

It is preferred that in almost all circumstances, the prayer and supplication of istakhara should be done by the person himself. In some cases, it is permitted that a close guardian or relative do the istakhara for someone under his care. For example, a parent may do istakhara for his child when they are confronted with option to determine what is best for their child; like which school to attend, which girl to marry, etc.

 

But in general circumstances, it is preferred that the person himself should do the istakhara for themselves.

 

The supposed imam who does istakhara for others or on television and gives them an immediate reply are no more than conmen and shams and fakes and are not to be believed in the least! Such unscrupulous and ignorant people make an absolute mockery of the beautiful Sunnah of istakhara, and their response or views have absolutely no basis to the Truth or reality.

 

If one trusts, obeys, and follows the guidance and commands of Allah and His Messenger (saws), one can be assured of never ever being misled; but if one believes, obeys and follows any other guidance, other than that of Allah and His Messenger (saws), one can be assured of being led astray.

 

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
