Q: I deeply honour your scholarly advice as I constantly follow your emails. My question today is:- I have heard from my friend that dread lock hairs symbolise satanic possession. Is it true by authentic Shari’ah?
A: If you research this and find that it is true then stop this at once and discourage others as well.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
