New Delhi: The focal point of Islamic jurisprudence in India, Darul Uloom Deoband, has today said that it would not conduct Muslim weddings where dance and music are incorporated before the ceremonies. The seminary noted, if the cleric is unaware of such practices then that will be considered a different matter, reported ANI.
“We won’t conduct ‘Nikah’ in weddings where music and dance are happening and where there is a DJ. This is against Islam, (we) will boycott such weddings. If the music and dance happened before the ‘nikah’ ceremony and Qazi (cleric) didn’t know then it’s different,” said city Qazi Mufti Azhar Hussain.
The seminary has given many verdicts since the beginning of this year such as about buying life insurance policies or getting property insured, and Islamic dress for women.
“Life and death are in the hands of Allah and no insurance company can guarantee a man’s longevity. These insurance companies invest the premium paid by the purchaser of the policy and earn interest on the same, later distributing some of it among their clients. And any income earned through interest is haram (forbidden),” said a clutch of Deoband clerics.
