From the Fatwa Department

Q: If a person did not perform Qurbani when it was compulsory on him, what should be done ? Can he give the monetary value in charity or will it be better to slaughter the animal or get a reputable organisation to do it for him?

Q: Can a woman wear coloured contact lenses and can these lenses be worn for beautification purposes ?

Q: What is the ruling regarding women shaping their eyebrows?


A: It is not permissible for women to neaten, trim, shape or cut their eyebrows. However, if the eyebrows appear grossly abnormal, extremely long and thick then they may  be trimmed slightly for them to appear normal. (Ahsanul Fatawa Vol. 8 Pg. 76)

There is a Hadith which mentions that women who remove such hair are accursed. The Hadith appears in Sahih Bukhari #4886, Sahih Muslim #2125, Sunan Abi Dawood #4691, Sunan ibni Majah #1989, Sunanud Daarimi Vol.2 Pg. 363 #2647.

And Allah Ta'ala Knows Best

People owe me money, so how do I calculate my Zakah?Q: There are a few people who owe me money for loans they have taken and stock purchased etc. Should I regard these amounts as Zakatable assets when calculating Zakah?

Zakah is Fardh (compulsory) upon every sane adult Muslim (male and female) who possesses net-Zakatable assets (i.e. Zakatable assets over and above one's basic needs minus liabilities) to the value of Nisab (minimum threshold) for one's Zakatable (lunar) year.

Q: Can you use eye drops whilst fasting?
