If you wish to contact me please remember I am not a scholar and cannot give a fatwa (legal judgment - plural fatawa).

Anyone seeking a fatwa should contact the Australian National Imams Council (ANIC) www.anic.org.au . It is the peak Islamic body in the country and “. . . is the sole national organisation of Imams and Islamic Scholars with broad community representation”. ANIC issues fatawa and can be readily consulted for guidance on all spiritual matters.

Quran-e-hakim.com supports the Australian National Imams Council (ANIC). A selection of announcements issued by them can be read at Downloads » ANIC .   

You can also contact islamqa.org . It is a reputable site staffed by qualified Shaykhs, predominantly from the Deobandi school of thought, who can guide you rightly about Islam. See my page entitled 'The Deobandis'.

In recommending islamqa.org I would like to stress that as Allah (Subhanahu wa ta’ala - Glory be to Him, the Most High) well knows I have the deepest of respect for all the ulama (religious scholars – singular alim).

Those seeking after the truth would be well advised to heed the following Hadith.

“He who does not praise our elder (with respect), show compassion to our little ones and recognise the worth of an alim (religious scholar), is not one of us.” [Musnad Ahmad]

I reiterate that I cannot give my own opinion about the teachings of Islam. It is strictly forbidden in Islam for any unqualified person to give their own opinion about the religion. If a person does so then, unless Allah (Subhanahu wa ta’ala - Glory be to Him, the Most High) forgives them, they run the risk of being punished.

I can only refer anyone interested in Islam to authoritative sources. Insha'Allah, I will attempt at all times to do so. Allah (Subhanahu wa ta'ala) knows best.

I would like to add that I am not a spiritual guide, a shaykh, nor a Sufi.

I am nothing. At the very best I am nothing more than a worthless wretch of no importance whom my beloved Allah (Subhanahu wa ta’ala - Glory be to Him, the Most High) found in the gutter so to speak and upon whom He took pity.

That is all I am at the very best. And all I know is all that Allah (Subhanahu wa ta’ala - Glory be to Him, the Most High) has taught me; and all I am is all that He has made me.

His beloved Angels (Alayhim as-salam - may the peace of Allah be upon them) spoke the truth when they said:

“Qalu sub’hanaka la il’ma lana illa ma ‘allamtana innaka anta l-‘alimu l-hakimu.” Surah Al-Baqarah 32 [Qur’anic Arabic Corpus]

“They said, “Glory be to You! No knowledge for us except what You have taught us. Indeed You! You (are) the All-Knowing, the All-Wise.” Surah Al-Baqarah 32 [Qur’anic Arabic Corpus]

Another translation reads:

“They (angels) said: ‘Glory is to You, we have no knowledge except what you have taught us. Verily, it is You, the All-Knower, the All-Wise.’ ” Surah Al-Baqarah 32 [Al-Hilali and Khan, no date, p. 42] [1]
