It should be emphatically stated from the outset that Mosques are houses of God, places of worship, sacred and worthy of utmost respect. Having said that, it is our duty to show the beauty of Islam and to invite others to our magnificent religion. School and community visits to the Mosque can act as a catalyst and open the doors of guidance to someone entering Islām. In the Hanafī school of Law , it is permissible for Non-Muslims to enter a Mosque.
We advise Muslims to be cautious when offering lambs for sacrifice this year (2018) and for the next few years. We have carried out field research and have been informed that as sheep give birth in late winter to early spring, the lambs may be four months old or even younger at the time of Eidul-Adhā; as a result the Qurbanī will not be accepted. This issue is anticipated to continue for the next few years; so Muslims are advised to offer sheep or other animals for sacrifice. It is permissible to offer a hog (also referred to as hogg, hoggerel, hogget) which is a younger sheep. However, whether it is a hog or lamb and is less than one year old it must be more than six months old and should be fat enough to appear to be at least one years old.

The objections of Ulama to smoking was due to its harmful effects and addiction. According to credible scientific studies Nicotine poses several health risks. It increases the risk of cardiovascular, respiratory, gastrointestinal disorders while decreasing natural immune response. It also poses ill impacts on the reproductive health. In fact the study recommends, "...sale of nicotine should be under supervision of trained medical personnel."
In conclusion, based on current factual information one may act on taqwa and remove these notes before praying. However, it would be permissible to pray with these notes on one’s person due to the most reasonable likelihood that the tallow has changed during the polymerisation process and the unnecessary difficulty removing notes would bring about.
