Day Questions

I am a university student and during the month of Ramadan I am required to take a set of examinations for a whole day. I am scared that if I fast I will not be able to concentrate and I will risk failing the exams, which are very crucial for me to pass. Is it permissible for me to not fast that day and make it up later after Ramadan?

We advise you to depend on Almighty Allah in all your acts and enter the exam room with the confidence that He is with you as long as you are acting upon His orders and completing your duty of fasting. Yes, if you can travel on the exam day after dawn and break your fast after reaching the Sharia-prescribed distance of breaking the fast, then you can break your fast that day as a traveler, and you should then make it up afterwards.

One found out from a reliable source that a brand of meat claiming to be halal is in fact not. He told his mother. She asked another source who claimed otherwise. She is asking him to buy the meat for her. Is it permissible for him to buy such a meat for her?

If the meat is taken from a Muslim or Muslims’ market, then one is permitted to sell it and buy it and do so on behalf of others. It is not permissible to buy or sell it if he came to know or two just (Adil) witnessed that the said meat is not slaughtered in accordance to the Sharia. Doubting of some people is not sufficient to consider it as non-Halal meat as long as it is possible to be slaughtered in accordance to the Sharia and it is taken from a Muslim or bought from Muslims’ market.

Is it permissible to visit pornographic sites?

If it involves sexual enjoyment then it is prohibited.
