Answered by Shaykh Yusuf Badat


My question is regarding the akrab as I heard that doing any auspicious work on this day is not good. Please clear this for me.


Thank you/ Jazakumullahu Khayran for your question.

I believe by ‘Akrab’ you are referring to the time when the moon is in a certain position. In Islam, Muslims believe Almighty Allah is the One that provides all goodness and protects from evil. The moon and it being in a certain position does not cause bad luck or evil effects. To believe so is against the principles of true islamic creed.

And Allah Knows Best
