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.

Wifaqul Ulama agrees with the opinion expressed by Averroes that the suggestion of a 'British values oath' at a time when our society is divided will be counterproductive. We also agree that narrowing the terms of the debate to suit certain political agendas should be stopped. We need a wider debate on how to create a more inclusive Britain. Integration isn’t just a Muslim issue and all attempts to force it from the Government are likely to have to the opposite effect.

Junaid Jamshed

I am struck with grief and saddened beyond our words at the passing away of my friend. When I heard the news of the plane gone missing I was apprehensive but my feelings turned to anguish when it was confirmed that my friend was on board. At this time I don’t have the words to express my emotions but I would like Wifaqul Ulama to request all Muslims in the country to pray for everyone who has passed away in this tragedy. May Allah Ta’ala forgive the sins of everyone, grant them entry into Jannatul-Firdaus and grant patience to their families. I request special Dua for my friend who is no longer with us.
Al-Quds (Jerusalem) is one of the most holiest cities of Islam and we agree with the MCB that this sends a clear message of hostility to the Muslims around the world.

Brexit: Now…

Let us begin by stating that the majority of British citizens exercised their right to express their wishes, that the UK should no longer be part of the EU. The wishes of the majority should be respected. We firmly believe that a majority of those voting for Brexit are neither racist nor xenophobic or Islamophobes but are decent, proud law abiding citizens of Britain who stand with us in condemning what is happening to our country.

Muslim Ban

I believe that this ban not only goes against basic human values of trust, compassion, tolerance and decency but will also prove to be an impediment in the fight against terrorism. I find that many in America such as Republican Sens. John McCain of Arizona and Lindsey Graham of South Carolina agree with my assessment. I urge our Prime Minister Theresa May to stand up for our fundamental British values and for her Government to take a much stronger stance in ensuring that this executive order is reversed, promptly. I will be joining the protest in front of 10 Downing Street and I urge all Muslims particularly our Scholars and community leaders to stand with all those who are united against injustice.
The western system of medicine owes a great deal of debt to the Babylonians, Egyptians, Greeks, Romans, Persians, Chinese and the Indians but the framework for bringing together experts under a single roof to heal the sick was popularised by Muslims. Bimaristan (refuge for the Sick)
