    أَفَمَنْ شَرَحَ اللَّهُ صَدْرَهُ لِلْإِسْلَامِ فَهُوَ عَلَىٰ نُورٍ مِنْ رَبِّهِ ۚ فَوَيْلٌ لِلْقَاسِيَةِ قُلُوبُهُمْ مِنْ ذِكْرِ اللَّهِ ۚ أُولَٰئِكَ فِي ضَلَالٍ مُبِينٍ
    Will he whose breast has been opened up to peace (not be) in luminescence from his Lord? Alas for those whose hearts have been hardened to God's remembrance! They wander (astray) in clear error.

    Question: I have faced so many difficulties in my life that it has made me hate this life. Every time I turned to Allaah, I pleaded for Him to take my life away from me at the earliest.

    Question: The Shaykh was asked regarding a bedouin man who had stolen a camel, and when death approached him he instructed his son to return it (to it`s owner), however, his son does not know who the owner is?

    Having shares in the Islaamic Bank
    Question
    : The Islaamic Bank has shares for sale and the value of each share is one hundred and ten US dollars ($110). And that which we have understood is that the bank in question does not trade in ribaa and that the money from the sale of the shares will be used in trading activities which are free from any dealings in interest. The profits will then be divided amongst the shareholders. So out of concern of falling into that which is impermissible, we request you to give a fatwa about whether this is permissible or not.

    Having shares in the Saudi-American Bank
    Question
    : Advise us, may Allaah increase you in knowledge, about the ruling of having shares in the Saudi-American Bank. Is it ribaa, since it trades in interest and is based upon interest, as we know?

    Response: The Saudi-American Bank and other banks, if they are based upon ribaa and trade inribaa, then it is not permissible to have shares in them. This is because it is regarded as assisting in sin and transgression, and Allaah has prohibited this, as He (Subhaanahu wa Ta’aala) says:

    {but do not help one another in sin and transgression}, {Soorah al-Maa.idah, Aayah 2].

    And with Allaah lies all success and may Allaah send prayers and salutations upon our Prophet (sal-Allaahu `alayhe wa sallam) and his family and his companions.

    Ruling concerning farming tobacco and its profits
    Question
    : What is the Islaamic ruling regarding farming tobacco and the money earned by the farmers from selling it?

    Response: It is not permissible to farm tobacco, or to sell it and nor to smoke it because it is haraam in many ways: due to its harmful effects on (one’s) health, due to its evilness and lack of benefit. (So) it is upon the Muslim to leave it (completely) and distance himself from it, not to farm it or trade in it because if Allaah has made something haraam then it’s trade is also haraam.

    And Allaah knows best.

    And with Allaah lies all success and may Allaah send prayers and salutations upon our Prophet (sal-Allaahu `alayhe wa sallam) and his family and his companions.

    Ruling concerning selling cigarettes, and praying having just smoked
    Question
    : What is the Sharee’ah ruling regarding one who sells all types of cigarettes? I smoke and when I hear the mu.adhdhin, I enter the masjid. (So) is it obligatory upon me to repeat mywudhoo. or is it enough to just rinse my mouth, and I know that smoking causes various diseases?

    Response: Selling cigarettes is haraam because of its evilness and many harmful effects, and one who does so becomes a faasiq (open sinner). It is not obligatory to repeat the wudhoo. as a result of smoking. However, it is legislated for him to remove the offending smell from his mouth with that which will do so, in addition to promptly seeking repentance from Allaah for that.

    And with Allaah lies all success and may Allaah send prayers and salutations upon our Prophet (sal-Allaahu `alayhe wa sallam) and his family and his companions.

    Ruling concerning trading in cigarettes and giving in charity from its profits
    Question
    : What is the ruling about trading in cigarettes and the like. Is it permissible to give in charity and perform Hajj or (other) noble acts using the profits of this trade?

    Response: It is not permissible to trade in cigarettes and all that is haraam. This is because they are all evil and for that where there is a harmful effect on the body, soul and wealth. If someone wanted to give in charity and perform the Hajj or spend on noble causes then it is befitting to work out that which is good (halaal) from (such) wealth and then give in charity from it, or perform theHajj or spend on noble causes. The generality of the saying of Allaah is:

    {O you who believe! Spend of the good things which you have (legally) earned, and of that which We have produced from the earth for you, and do not aim at that which is bad to spend from it, (though) you would not accept it save if you close your eyes and tolerate therein. And know that Allaah is Rich (Free of all wants), and Worthy of all praise} [Soorah al-Baqarah, Aayah 267].

    And his (sal-Allaahu `alayhe wa sallam) saying:

    ((Certainly Allaah is good and does not accept (anything) except good)), [reported by Ahmad, Muslim, at-Tirmidhee, ad-Daarimee, al-Bayhaqee].

    And with Allaah lies all success and may Allaah send prayers and salutations upon our Prophet (sal-Allaahu `alayhe wa sallam) and his family and his companions.
