court

Assalamou Alaikum warahmatullah wabarakatuhum Respected Mufti Sahib, Can you please assist in answering the following Question, may Allah the Almighty reward you in abundantly, Ameen. A husband made a petition to the English court asking the Judge to issue a Legal Divorce on the basis that, * the husband had lived apart from his wife for a continuous period of at least two years immediately preceding the presentation of the petition, and * the wife consents to a divorce being granted and * that the marriage has broken down irretrievably. If a Judge holding the above reasons issued a divorce, when the truth of the matter was that all these basis were completely untrue, will the divorce issued by a Judge be valid according to the Shariah?? An immediate response would be anticipated. Jazakallahu khairan.

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم(Fatwa: 92/D) In the case mentioned above, though the husband did not pronounce Talaq, but when he filed a petition (though fake) in the court that he divorced his wife and asked the judge to issue a legal divorce, then also Talaq will take...

Can we treat a video or photo as an evidence against or for any person in order to prove him guilty or not? If so, then video, photo must be allowed. As you know that videos, photos and many other things preserves events in a real time ie when it happens. So, to know the truth these techniques are extremely helpful to deliver the justice. Islam wants justice to be revealed at any cost and there must not be even an iota of injustice to anybody. In fact these techniques help us to know the truth and a person can not lie if he or she knows that his or her video or photo is taken and can be produced in a court. Like for example I have a shop which has video camera in it, so if somebody attempts to thief and his activities are captured by camera. So, is it allowed in Islam to produce that as an evidence against the thief in a court? If it is allowed then photography, videography must be allowed in Islam if not then why?

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم (Fatwa: 70/45/D=01/1437) Generally, photography and picture making is unlawful and haram, Hadith sternly warns about it. إن من أشد الناس عذابا يوم القيامة المصورون (البخارى). However, in the light of other provisions, the Ulama allowed it at the...
