Dar Al Iftaa in Jordan:
It issued several fatwas which are considered on behalf of religious discourse renewal.
A fatwa prohibiting torture by fire, another fatwa against torture; because it is a violation of human dignity.
In its fatwa, it forbid photographing the injured and the dead in accidents, because it is a violation of human privacy and dignity.
It emphasized the permissibility of a Muslim to work in international institutions concerned with the vulnerable and prisoners of war rights and the support of the weak and the needy.
The department issued several fatwas prohibiting right hand possession, out of respect for human freedom and dignity, and one of its most prominent fatwas in this regard is the inadmissibility of what the terrorist ISIS did in terms of capturing Yazidi women.
The department also called in its fatwas for the rule of law in access to rights, which is a matter of the right to a fair trial.
And in its fatwa, it authorized the payment of zakat to the poor student, to encourage knowledge and learning as a fundamental human right.
The fatwa emphasized intellectual property rights and creative efforts as a right to participate in cultural life.
Malik bin Nabi
Malik Bin Nabi School says that Muslims’ problem is not just the application of Sharia. The Muslims’ problem lies in the backwardness they live in, and here lies the difference between Islamic movements and Malik bin Nabi.
A quote: “We are done with grave decoy, he means superstitious mysticism, and we moved to funds trap, he means that Muslims used to seek help from the graves to save them from their reality, he means by funds trap awaiting the achievements of the governments that they will elect “
Here, Malik Bin Nabi always focuses on effectiveness.
Dead thoughts and deadly thoughts:
We have dead ideas in our old culture. If we adopted them, they would not be useful in our time, even our scholars who created these ideas if they came to our time, they would say how do you stick to these outdated ideas? If we had known your new ideas, we would not have clung to our ideas.
Malik bin Nabi means by deadly ideas those that the other have. What is intended by the other are non-Muslims as a cosmic civilization that is dominated by the Western civilization. There are deadly thoughts in it if we convey them as they are.
You are the ones who are responsible. You are even the reason for colonialism. If you hadn’t been susceptible to colonialism, you would not have been colonized. If you had not been weak, no one would have been able to colonize you. If you want to get rid of colonialism, get rid of the causes of colonialism.
Civilization is charity in everything, charity with ideas, with inventions. He mentions an example in a quotation which says “We should suffer from the annoying sound, the disturbing sight, and the disgusting smell, this is the face of the homeland.
The Khilafah collapsed for objective reasons that made it collapse. If it had been strong, it would have continued.
Civilization equals man plus soil plus time; man being a human being, from Adam to the present day, regardless of his earnings which he acquired thanks to his diligence throughout history; dust being the raw material for every product that appears in existence; time being a period of valid time for evaluating everything
The task at hand for the contemporary Muslim is of infinite size. He should rethink the entirety of the Islamic system without severing entirely with the past. One of the basic conditions in the process of renewal is the critical approach of modern sciences, because “the only way that is still open before us is to deal with modern sciences with respect, but with an independent stance, and to appreciate Islamic teachings in light of the enlightment these sciences give.”
“Religion in its highest form is neither rigid rulings, nor priestly rulings, nor remembrance.”
The person must rise to a new perception of his past and his future, in order to be able to overcome the conflicting, clashing society, and to overcome this urbanism that has lost its spiritual unity by esoteric collision between religion and political ambitions. The truth is that the course of religion and science, regardless of its means, ends in one goal. Rather, religion is more concerned than science with achieving greater truth.
He said: “Believe me, Europe today is the greatest obstacle to man moral advancement. As for the Muslim, he has these final opinions that are based on the revelation which talks to people from life and existence depths.”
Muslim’s personality as a conscious subject does not know subjugation, humiliation and ignominy. It motivates him to launch and struggle until he reaches the place that befits him under the sun.
