Refrain from doubtful areas

www.ihyaauddeen.co.za
The first hadeeth in the chapter of business in Bukhaari Shareef starts off with al-halaalu bayyinun
walharaamu bayyinun. Halaal is clear and haraam is clear. Water is halaal and there is no doubt in it.
Similarly fish is halaal and you do not need to ask whether it is halaal. !n the other hand pork is
haraam and this is clear. "ou will not ask whether you #et halaal pork. Howe$er between the both you
#et mushtabihaat that which is unclear and doubtful. So what must you do in such cases% The hadeeth
instructs us that we should refrain from doubtful areas. Had &llah Taala wished He could ha$e made
all thin#s abundantly clear without anythin# bein# doubtful. Howe$er this world is a place of test and
thus in His wisdom &llah has allowed these doubtful areas to come about in order to test a person.
The hadeeth says that the one who #uards himself a#ainst doubtful areas then he has secured and
safe#uarded his deen and his respect and di#nity. 'or e(ample you see a #irl stranded on the side of the
road. 'rom one dimension you would like to help her as she is stranded and in need but from another
an#le shareeah has prohibited men from bein# in seclusion with stran#e women. Hence there is the
element of doubt in this. &nd by lea$in# this out you will #uard your deen and di#nity and you will not
allow people to ha$e suspicions about you. There are plenty illustrations of this nature.
