Q: While I read your ruling on Digital photography, maulana of almost all sects like Deobandi, Barelvi, Gair Muqallid, Shia or Ahle Sunnat Waljamat are getting their speeches and are aired on TV or You Tube etc. Maulana Tariq Jameel and Maulana Saad are the prominent Deobandi maslak Maulanas in this respect. Are they indulging in Haraam? Shall we not watch them?
A: The shar`ee procedure is to follow the fiqhi principles as recorded and preserved. According to fiqhi principles this is not permissible. We are not responsible for the actions and behaviour of any personality.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
