Statuses of kafirs in front of Muslims, jizyah & ahl al-kitab

29 Jul

As-Salamu ‘Alaikum

In order to properly refute the scholars of duniya who are the best friends of kafirs and enemies of Islam and Muslims but claim to be ‘Ash’ari’, ‘Sunni’ and ‘Sufi’ scholars, it is necessary for common Muslims to properly acquaint themselves with some points pertaining to usool of Islamic fiqh (foundational principles). 

Knowing some key usooli points is what will help Muslims see the misguided furoo’ (the derived rulings) that these kafirs pretending to be Muslims propagate in order to serve their kafir masters. 

The way these scholars of duniya work is through what one would call ‘Islamic fallacies’ where they issue a furoo’iy ruling that is deliberately based on faulty and twisted usool or at times non-existent usool. (Translation of a Persian taunt at such people, “Your usool are damaged, and your furoo’ are shaky at best”)

Since these kafirs pretending to be Muslims work only and only to uplift kufr and the kuffaar, and to try and downplay the honor and pride of Islam and Muslims, they twist and abuse many principles of Islam and/or take them out of context, to issue rulings that cause ordinary Muslims to diminish in their antipathy towards kufr and kuffaar and give up on their Muslim pride. 

These few pointers shall in sha Allah, help many common Muslims locate right away – the debauchery of the scholars of duniya who pretend to be ‘Sunni’ and ‘Ash’ari’ and ‘Sufi’, but in reality are filthy munaafiqiin and ugly zanaadiq. 


Because the rulings regarding Muslim-kafir interaction are dependent on the status of the kafir. It is simply not enough to say, “Muslims are allowed to [action x] with kafirs” or “Muslims should [action y] with kafirs.” It is imperative that the status of the kafir being discussed be mentioned, otherwise the one issuing the ruling is either an ignoramus or a munaafiq playing with the rules of the noble Shari’ah.

As an example, the scholars of duniya almost always state that “Muslims are allowed to marry christian/jew women” or that “Muslims are allowed to give charity to kafirs” but they almost never state that charities that are not zakat are ONLY allowed for DHIMMIS (zakat is NOT allowed even for dhimmis), and NOT allowed for harbiys – and that the most relied upon opinion of the bulk majority of scholars is that marriage of a Muslim man to a jew or christian woman is allowed ONLY if she is a dhimmiyah, and then too, with certain conditions. The relied upon and dominant opinion is that Muslim men are NOT allowed to marry harbiyyaat christian and jew women.

Let us start.

1 – Statuses of kafirs in front of Muslims

There are ONLY 4 statuses that kafirs have in front of Muslims. These statuses are common to ALL the madhhabs of the Ahlus Sunnah and there is NO DIFFERENCE OF OPINION on it.

The definitions can be found in any primary texts of fiqh of ANY madhhab. I have taken these Arabic fiqh definitions from the Kuwaiti Ministry of Religious Affairs’ Encyclopedia of Fiqh ( They are highlighted in green.

It should be noted that these are social statuses and they even apply on men, women, elderly and children alike. 

a – أهل الذمة : أهل الذمة هم الكفار الذين أقروا في دار الإسلام على كفرهم بالتزام الجزية ونفوذ أحكام الإسلام فيهم

ahl al-dhimmah : The ahl al-dhimmah (dhimmis) are the kuffaar who are accepted to live in a Dar Al-Islam (a Muslim state) maintaining their kufr – WITH the obligation to pay the jizyah and the domination of the commands of Islam [i.e., the Shari’ah – ruling] upon them.

A dhimmi’s life and property is protected by the Muslim state. Muslims are not allowed to hurt them or their property, it is HARAM & SINFUL. Muslim men can marry christian and jew dhimmi women.

However, it should also be noted that it is ALSO HARAM & KUFR to honor dhimmis or give them the same treatment one offers one’s Muslim brothers and sisters. It is HARAM to offer them the Islamic salam or be the first to initiate a greeting to them to honor them. It is HARAM to bear close affinities & friendships to them. It is HARAM to offer them employment in prestigious positions or to hire them in a position above Muslims. It is HARAM to share secrets with them or hire them in the state’s administrative positions. These are the rulings of ALL MADHHABS. Any book of fiqh from ANY madhhab can be seen.

dhimmi status is as good as a kafir’s status gets in front of Muslims. While a dhimmi is granted safety, he is also humiliated by being charged jizyah, which he has to pay arriving on foot to the revenue officer, in person, without sending a representative and with his own hands. It can only be accorded if they pay the jizyah.

A person CAN NOT be called a dhimmi or be treated like a dhimmi if he doesn’t pay the jizyah.

There are NO dhimmis in these times. After the colonial era in Muslim lands, as Muslim nations got back on their feet, they missed out on implementing the jizyah.

The jizyah is FARDZ to be implemented as it is a direct command from Allah Himself in the Quran. ALL Muslims MUST educate their scholars and leaders to help in the implementation of the jizyah. In times of trials, the Muslims MUST help their scholars and leaders and the best help is educating them regarding the commands of Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala.

Allah has mandated the jizyah to humiliate the kufr and the ahl al-kufr. No amount of sugar-coating by the munaafiq scholars of duniya will delete the humiliation of the kuffaar that Allah has mandated directly in the Quran.

Some kafirs who pretend to be Muslim scholars are very happy that the jizyah is not charged now and they say that Imam Mahdi along with Sayyidina ‘Eisa, ‘ala nabiyyina wa ‘alaihimus salam, will abolish the jizyah. They gleefully tell this to their kafir masters. It is TRUE that Sayyidina ‘Eisa will abolish the jizyah acting upon the command by our Master RasulAllah ﷺ for that time, but in that time, the severity of the kuffaar against the Muslims will be at a peak and Islam will also be at its harshest against them, and the abolishing of the jizyah will be based on: ‘Become Muslim or perish! Even accepting to pay the jizyah will not save you now!’ It will NOT be done to honor kafirs or consider them equal to Muslims, like these munaafiqiin imply.


b – المستأمنون : المستأمن في الأصل : الطالب للأمان ، وهو الكافر يدخل دار الإسلام بأمان ، أو المسلم إذا دخل دار الكفار بأمان

Mustamanoon [plural of mustaman]: A mustaman in reality is a seeker of safety [from war], and he is a kafir who enters Muslim land in safety [from war as granted by the head of Muslim state]; or he can be a Muslim who enters a kafir state in safety.

A mustaman is a kafir from a kafir state, who enters a Muslim state getting an assurance of safety for his life and property from the Muslim ruler. Like dhimmis, it is not allowed to hurt a mustaman.

The kafir citizens of Muslim states in these times can only be called mustaman. They can’t be called dhimmis because the jizyah is not charged anywhere in the world.

As the definition states, a Muslim citizen of an Islamic state visiting a kafir land, can also be called mustaman relative to the kuffaar of that land.


c – أهل العهد : هم الذين صالحهم إمام المسلمين على إنهاء الحرب مدة معلومة لمصلحة يراها

ahl al-‘ahd : They are the people with whom the Imam [i.e., ruler] of the Muslims has resolved to end combat hostilities for a known period, for any strategic reasons he observes.

As the definition states, a Muslim ruler can suspend war with kafir states for a set period of time and enter into treaties with them, for strategic reason that are of benefit to Islam. The kafirs of these states are called mu’ahad or ahl al-‘ahd. Muslims should honor the contract for as long as it lasts. They only need to honor the contract to the extent of its terms.

It should however be noted, that any contract, treaty, or agreement, that a Muslim state enters into, they must not contain any clauses or conditions contrary to Islam or else they in their entirety, or those parts will be null and void (depending on what the state qaadzi rules). Therefore, it is NOT necessary on any Muslim state to honor any idiotic treaty or convention which asks them to lift the jizyah or legalize sins like homosexuality or abolish the Islamic capital punishments and so on. Allah’s law stands till the day of judgment and if a Muslim leader signed any such idiotic treaty, he SHOULD break away from it.

The kafir citizens of western nations in these times can ONLY be considered ahl al-‘ahd at best and the citizenship/visas of such states would be the contracts/treaties. Muslim citizens of those states should not violate such contracts as long as they are allowed to practice Islam freely in those states.


d – أهل الحرب أو الحربيون : هم غير المسلمين الذين لم يدخلوا في عقد الذمة ، ولا يتمتعون بأمان المسلمين ولا عهدهم

ahl al-harb or harbiyyoon [harbiyyoon is plural of harbiy]: They are those nonMuslims who DO NOT enter the treaty of dhimmah (protection) and they do not enjoy any safety or treaties from Muslims [from being warred against].

The harbiy status even applies on women, children and elderly, even though in the event of an actual war, it is forbidden to kill them.

(The Arabic definitions above, highlighted in green, are taken from the Encyclopedia of Islamic Fiqh, published by Kuwait’s Ministry of Islamic Affairs)


Any elementary servant of fiqh, of any madhhab, knows that harbiy is the flip-side of dhimmi, that is, if a person is not a dhimmi, he is a harbiy.

Even the mustamanoon and the ahl al-‘ahd are [de facto] harbiyyoon, BUT they are not harbiy bil f’il (حربي بالفعل), or to translate in everyday English, they are NOT harbiy per se, that is, they are not warring actively in the battleground,

BUT ideologically they harbor antagonism to Islam. They struggle against Islam and seek to dominate over it.

Just consider these few points:

They support the illegitimate state of israel.

They support their leaders in wars against Muslims.

Even if they oppose wars against Muslims, they still show antagonism to Islamic ideology, by promoting sin & vice that come under the umbrella of secular capitalistic democracies, AND they also promote antagonism and harshness against Islam, Quran, our beloved Prophet ﷺ, all in the name of ‘freedom of speech’, etc. The ostentatious kafir ‘human rights’ and ‘environmental’ organizations like amnesty, who claim to be the propagators of ‘peace’ and ‘goodwill’ are in fact particularly evil and nothing but symbolisms of idiocy and moral vanity, and open and severe enemies of Islam. For example, they openly speak ill of Islamic laws and the Shari’ah punishments of qisaas and hudood, like for adultery, murder, theft, etc. Muslims should note that talking ill of the Shari’ah or denying its explicit rules, commandments, punishments etc. makes one a kafir just like these filthy satanists, la’anahumullah.

إِن تَمْسَسْكُمْ حَسَنَةٌ تَسُؤْهُمْ وَإِن تُصِبْكُمْ سَيِّئَةٌ يَفْرَحُواْ بِهَا

Translation of meaning: If some good meets you, it grieves them, and if some illfortune meets you, they rejoice in it… [Holy Quran 3:120]

إِن تُصِبْكَ حَسَنَةٌ تَسُؤْهُمْ

Translation of meaning: If some good meets you [O beloved Prophet], it grieves them… Holy Quran 9:50

Their grief shows should Islam/Muslim attain any success, how they do not wish for Muslim states to acquire certain arms, and also at the same time their beaming happiness shows and the venom in their hearts comes to surface whenever a misfortune strikes Muslims. It is inherently impossible for a kafir to be a well-wisher of Islam. 

Islam and kufr are two opposites and all of kufr is one entity as our scholars have taught us. Islam and kufr simply CAN’T be equals. The antagonism against Islam rising in western nations is proof that these two opposing ideologies can’t ever be on a level field. Opposing ideologies inherently seek to dominate and with Islam and kufr, it will always be a case of who is dominating and who is dominated. Remember that ALL of kufr is ONE nation, it includes all their religious and political ideologies.

Anyone who considers these harbiy kafirs as friends of Islam/Muslims is a deluded ignoramus at best or a munaafiq at worst. The munaafiq scholars of duniya are working their hardest and doing their level best to make sure that Muslims accept the domination of the kufr and kuffaar above Islam and Muslims and let this post-colonialist, camouflaged colonialism carry on. They shall be disgraced in this life and in the hereafter in sha Allah. 

When the secular capitalists want the empire of secular capitalism to dominate the planet and be accepted as the dominant ideology, Muslims must have shame and they too must want ISLAM to dominate the planet, and they must see the present day kuffaar as they are – harbiyyoon. Being mustaman or mu’ahad doesn’t take away from their core harbiy essence, be it by Islamic fiqh or by practical ground realities.

And in any case, as I have stated and anyone is welcome to check any book of fiqh, the best treatment a kafir can be given is dhimmi, and even dhimmi is not an honorable status in Islam. ‘Protected’ and ‘honored’ are two very different things.

These munaafiqin pretending to be scholars of Islam simply can’t take the dishonor of the kuffaar away, even if they sold their souls. Islam in itself is something that dishonors and disgraces kufr. They are working very hard to forge affinities and friendships with the kuffaar, calling on Muslims to honor their kafir masters. It is haram for Muslims to just befriend dhimmis and honor them. What can we say about these harbiyyoon! In sha Allah, they shall never achieve their aim of getting kufr to dominate over Islam. 

2 – The verse of jizyah

To refresh the memory of the scholars of duniya, here is the verse of the jizyah. The jizyah is fardz and it is not abrogated. It is commanded by Allah, and stays until Imam Mahdi arrives. They couldn’t brush away the topic of jizyah and the Muslim history of charging jizyah even if they tried. They should perhaps read up on the biography of Sayyidina ‘Umar, radzi Allahu ‘anhu and how he implemented jizya and how ALL 4 madhhabs implemented it modeling after him, until it was finally not implemented in the modern Muslim states.

Indeed these kafirs pretending to be Muslim scholars are humiliated in the duniya and the hereafter.

قَاتِلُواْ الَّذِينَ لاَ يُؤْمِنُونَ بِاللّهِ وَلاَ بِالْيَوْمِ الآخِرِ وَلاَ يُحَرِّمُونَ مَا حَرَّمَ اللّهُ وَرَسُولُهُ وَلاَ يَدِينُونَ دِينَ الْحَقِّ مِنَ الَّذِينَ أُوتُواْ الْكِتَابَ حَتَّى يُعْطُواْ الْجِزْيَةَ عَن يَدٍ وَهُمْ صَاغِرُونَ

 Translation of meaning: War [against] the people who do not believe in Allah nor the last day, nor hold that as forbidden which has been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, and [those that] take not as their religion the religion of truth (Islam) from those who have been given a book* – until they pay the jizya with their hands, and they’re humiliated**. [Holy Quran 9:29]

* Those who do not believe in Allah refers to the people who do not believe in Him as He has commanded to believe in Him, with his Self & Attributes as well as they do not believe in ALL His prophets. This includes all pagans, atheists, etc., and as the verse says, even includes people of the book, since they do not accept Prophet Muhammad, sal Allahu ‘alaihi wa sallam, as Allah’s Messenger, plus not to mention they do not even believe in Allah and His Self & Attributes as they should, the jews being anthropomorphists engaged in tajseem and tashbeeh, some of them even mushrikeen who call ‘Uzair, ‘alaihis salam, as Allah’s son (wal ‘iyadhu billah); and the christians being blatant polytheists with their beliefs in the trinity and attributing Allah with a son, subhanahu ‘amma yushrikoon.

** Jizya is the tribute taken from the people of the book and all other kafirs engaged in a protection treaty with the Muslim state. Fiqh rulings – 1. This jizya is taken in cash and there is no credit facility in it. 2. The one who pays jizya HAS TO appear personally before the revenue officers of the Islamic state and pay the jizya. 3. He has to come walking and stand up when he pays it. 4. All kafirs including the people of the book have to pay the jizya except the mushriks of the Arabian peninsula as jizya from them is not accepted. 5. Jizya is lifted from those who embrace Islam. | The hikmah of imposing the jizya is that the kuffaar be given time to explore the beauty of Islam and its infallible proofs attesting its truthfulness and thus they too have an opportunity to uplift their sorry states and rise to the opportunity to become Muslim.

3 – The ahl al-kitab, the christians and jews, are kafirs without doubt

In ALL 4 MADHHABS of the Ahlus Sunnah, it is mandatory to charge jizyah to the ahl al-kitab citizens, the christians and jews – of the Muslim state.

Any minor student of fiqh knows that jizyah is not charged to Muslims, but only to kafirs and the jizyah is lifted from a person as soon as he embraces Islam. 

Does not then the charging of the jizyah to ahl al-kitab (christians and jews) by all Sunni madhhabs and Muslim states throughout the history of Islam, establish that they are kafirs? They are indeed and there are plentiful direct & primary proofs for this right from Quran and hadiith. There is absolutely NO difference of opinion on this between ANY scholars of Islam, past or present. The munaafiq scholars of duniya are working very hard to propagate that christians and jews are not kafirs. 

To those zanaadiq who say that Islam hasn’t reached every nook and cranny of the west and therefore, their kafir citizens can’t be called kafirs, we say: This is the age in which information spreads at lightning speeds. If the kafirs of the kafir nations were called kuffaar right in the times of sahaba and tabi’een, when information took ages to travel, then this excuse of ‘but Islam hasn’t reached all the country towns of the west’ for their kafir brothers and sisters holds absolutely no water.

Syncretism & perennialism that equate Islam and kufr are nothing but pure apostasy from Islam, and they have NOTHING to do with the ways of the lions of the Ahlus Sunah, the people of Ash’ari and Maturidi ‘aqaid and the 4 madhhabs of the Ahlus Sunnah and one of the noble Sufi paths – and we seek Allah’s refuge from such.

Let these kafirs see the implementation of the jizyah by the noble Ash’ari & Maturidi rulers of Islam who were also followers of Islamic tasawwuf of the noble turuq like Naqshbandi, Cheshti, Qadiri, Shadhili & so on. Let them study the no-compromise-on-Islam politics and the wars by the lions of tasawwuf who grandly uplifted Islam and the ummah. Indeed, Allah caused Islam to dominate far and wide through the nobles of tasawwuf who were also the roaring lions of warfare, the bearers of the flag of Islam and Muslim pride.

We ask Allah to destroy these syncretist munaafiqiin and bless us yet once again with such noble REAL Sufis. 

And Allah alone grants success.

  2. 'Abd-Allah al-Mujaddidi al-Naqshbandi

    July 31, 2011 at 2:44 pm

    Tafsiir of Imam Ibn Kathiir states thus:

    Muslim recorded from Abu Hurayrah that the Prophet said,

    «لَا تَبْدَءُوا الْيَهُودَ وَالنَّصَارَى بِالسَّلَامِ، وَإِذَا لَقِيتُمْ أَحَدَهُمْ فِي طَرِيقٍ فَاضْطَرُّوهُ إِلَى أَضْيَقِه»

    (Do not initiate the Salam to the Jews and Christians, and if you meet any of them in a road, force them to its narrowest alley.) This is why the Leader of the faithful `Umar bin Al-Khattab, may Allah be pleased with him, demanded his well-known conditions be met by the Christians, these conditions that ensured their continued humiliation, degradation and disgrace. The scholars of Hadith narrated from `Abdur-Rahman bin Ghanm Al-Ash`ari that he said, “I recorded for `Umar bin Al-Khattab, may Allah be pleased with him, the terms of the treaty of peace he conducted with the Christians of Ash-Sham: `In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful. This is a document to the servant of Allah `Umar, the Leader of the faithful, from the Christians of such and such city. When you (Muslims) came to us we requested safety for ourselves, children, property and followers of our religion. We made a condition on ourselves that we will neither erect in our areas a monastery, church, or a sanctuary for a monk, nor restore any place of worship that needs restoration nor use any of them for the purpose of enmity against Muslims. We will not prevent any Muslim from resting in our churches whether they come by day or night, and we will open the doors [of our houses of worship] for the wayfarer and passerby. Those Muslims who come as guests, will enjoy boarding and food for three days. We will not allow a spy against Muslims into our churches and homes or hide deceit [or betrayal] against Muslims. We will not teach our children the Qur’an, publicize practices of Shirk, invite anyone to Shirk or prevent any of our fellows from embracing Islam, if they choose to do so. We will respect Muslims, move from the places we sit in if they choose to sit in them. We will not imitate their clothing, caps, turbans, sandals, hairstyles, speech, nicknames and title names, or ride on saddles, hang swords on the shoulders, collect weapons of any kind or carry these weapons. We will not encrypt our stamps in Arabic, or sell liquor. We will have the front of our hair cut, wear our customary clothes wherever we are, wear belts around our waist, refrain from erecting crosses on the outside of our churches and demonstrating them and our books in public in Muslim fairways and markets. We will not sound the bells in our churches, except discretely, or raise our voices while reciting our holy books inside our churches in the presence of Muslims, nor raise our voices [with prayer] at our funerals, or light torches in funeral processions in the fairways of Muslims, or their markets. We will not bury our dead next to Muslim dead, or buy servants who were captured by Muslims. We will be guides for Muslims and refrain from breaching their privacy in their homes.’ When I gave this document to `Umar, he added to it, `We will not beat any Muslim. These are the conditions that we set against ourselves and followers of our religion in return for safety and protection. If we break any of these promises that we set for your benefit against ourselves, then our Dhimmah (promise of protection) is broken and you are allowed to do with us what you are allowed of people of defiance and rebellion.”’

    The above is not my translation, but taken from this webpage:

    This is what you were asking in regards to Sayyidina ‘Umar’s, radzi Allahu ‘anhu, pact with the ahl al-dhimmah. It should also be noted that the same/similar rules were adopted by ALL 4 of the madhhabs of the Ahlus Sunnah.

    May Allah reward you. Good to learn that in this day and age it’s not allowed to marry any kafir as no dhimmi exist.

  7. 'Abd-Allah al-Mujaddidi al-Naqshbandi

    June 2, 2014 at 9:46 am

    May Allah reward you too.

    Please see this post for the ruling of our master Ibn ‘Abbas who said that it is allowed to marry a christian or jew woman ONLY IF she is a dhimmiyah, and some detailed comments regarding the matter.

    Look at the absolute worst case scenario –

    If a Muslim woman is a characterless and sinful woman who never prays or fasts and so on – at least when she dies, the child will still be forced to say the name of Allah when he prays her janazah. The child will still feel safe for praying for his deceased mother. He can rest assured that even if her sins are not pardoned by Allah, she shall eventually enter heaven once she gets punishment for all her sins, as the Prophet has given us the glad tidings that NO MUSLIM shall stay everlastingly in hell-fire. Even the most despicably sinful Muslim in the world shall eventually enter heaven after getting chastisement for his sins or being granted a pardon by Allah.

    On the other hand, the christian or jew woman can NEVER call her child to Islam or teach it to him. A kafir is not a source of information or a teacher of Islam. If she dies, the child will not be able to pray for her, and might become a munafiq and a kafir (al-‘iyadhu billah) upon shaytan’s whispering as a lot of western Muslims have become, because they somehow believe that it is any person’s right to enter heaven and Allah’s duty to send anyone to heaven and that Muslims should pray for dead kafirs to enter heaven. They do not realize that Allah has promised heaven only to those who believe in Him and belief in Him entails accepting ALL His Prophets, and that He has promised everlasting hell-fire and damnation to anyone who doesn’t accept Him and ALL His Prophets, the Last Messenger being our Master Muhammad ﷺ. Furthermore, the deeds of the slave are not the ransom for entering heaven. He owns the creation and it is purely His Mercy that lets people into heaven. The munafiqeen of these days who have christian or jew friends and relatives, argue that Muslims try to “limit His Mercy” by stating that christians and jews will be deprived of heaven and shall burn never-endingly in hellfire. The filthy liars do not see that it is His Promise and the message delivered by His Messenger that states that anyone who dies outside of Islam, will NEVER enter heaven.

    The Muslim mother will be a teacher of Islam EVEN IF she is the worst Muslim on the planet and doesn’t actively teach Islam. And the christian/jew mother will simply NOT be so, even if she happens to be a ‘good’ person otherwise, her deeds will be useless. The Quran says that the ‘good’ deeds of kafirs are useless and to no avail in the hereafter.

    Our Master Sufi Shaykh ‘Abdul Qadir Al-Jilaniy (may his secret be sanctified), like ALL the TRUE SUFI scholars of the Ahlus Sunnah has said (

    و نصدق أن فساق هذه الأمة خير من اليهود والنصارى والمجوس

    And we ascertain [i.e., believe] that [even] the woeful open sinners of this ummah[i.e., the Muslim ummah] are better than the jews and christians and magians

    Also see this below post on how the Quran and the Islamic tradition state openly that there is no sisterhood between Muslim women and christian/jew women, and that Muslim women must observe hijab from christian and jew women just as they observe from men:

    It is hoped that in-sha-Allah our brothers and sisters will take heed and develop true and genuine Islamic brotherhood and sisterhood which has no room for christians and jews in it.

    And there is no success except by His granting.

      In yuor opinion all the act of kindness with not dhimmi disbevelier is useless?

        August 30, 2015 at 12:01 am

        Waleikum Salam

        My opinion means nothing. We are supposed to follow the madhhabs of the Ahlus Sunnah who have inherited from the teachings of the Master ﷺ.

        As for the acts of kindness to harbiyyeen, in general,it is indeed useless, not piety, or haram depending on the case at hand. If you have a query for a specific case, please let us know and we can ask the shuyukh.
