The Spread of Fatwa Via the Internet

Answered as per Shafi'i Fiqh by Darul Iftaa Jordan
We have noticed the spread of invalid Fatwas via internet and websites of some Muslim scholars. What is the impact of such a phenomenon ?

Answer:
Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds; and may His blessings and peace be upon our Prophet Muhammad and upon all his Family and Companions: It is totally unacceptable for the questioner to say: “Some Fatwas are invalid” unless he specifies a Fatwa and clarifies the aspect in which it violates the principles of Islamic Law. However, the internet provides a window of opportunity for the Muslim scholars to convey their view points and knowledge to a larger audience, thus they should make use of it as much as possible.
