I find it fascinating some of the answers given, a woman asked about working on an album for another religion and she was answered nothing in sharia prohibits that?? ”Cooperate in piety but do not cooperate in sin……” Quran 5:2 would you not see cooperating spreading kufr as a sin? Is there a bigger sin than kufr, and YES as a muslim people of other religions are committing kufr, either by taking a partner to Allah swt or by denying his messenger. What qualification does this strange man have to give fatwas and what is the goal of these lies? I find this very strange and upsetting have you no fear of Allah swt and before palm me off as an ”extremest” and carry on, I am far from that and any mulsim of sound mind would understand the ridiculousness of that question? Scarily that is the first question I read who knows what else the site contains? Sin is sin and Allah swt says ”fear Me as much as you can, sin is forgiven changing the religion of Allah swt when you can clearly see you are wrong is kufr, I don’t expect a response from people like yourselves but at least I informed you from my behalf.
O ye who believe! Violate not the sanctity of the symbols of Allah, nor of the sacred month, nor of the animals brought for sacrifice, nor the garlands that mark out such animals, nor the people resorting to the sacred house, seeking of the bounty and good pleasure of their Lord. But when ye are clear of the sacred precincts and of pilgrim garb, ye may hunt and let not the hatred of some people in (once) shutting you out of the Sacred Mosque lead you to transgression (and hostility on your part). Help ye one another in righteousness and piety, but help ye not one another in sin and rancour: fear Allah: for Allah is strict in punishment. – Al Ma’idah 5:2
It is quite clear from the verses that God has enjoined the believers from inciting one another into taking vengeful action against the disbelievers. Even in the case when the disbelievers barred the Muslims from entering the Sacred Mosque the Muslims are told to behave justly and treat the disbelievers in a righteous manner. It is obvious that when one wrongs us, as occurred, we may not respond in kind. Nevertheless, these verses have no relation to the point you are trying to make. Your declaration of sin being committed is an extension of misreading the verses and the overall picture of the religion as it relates to other religions. In fact, we disagree with your definition of kufr (i.e. rejection of Truth) and how you apply it to the original question. Kufr – in its technical meaning as the action of a Kafir – is the active and deliberate rejection of God’s Truth: Islam. A point that needs to be considered is that an act may be viewed as kufr from the view of its results. However, the intention of the person committing the acts may be completely innocent. The only people designated as such are those who are well aware of the Truth and consciously refuse it.
The original questioner is a broadcast engineer, which entails the job of assuring proper sound quality via mixing, equalization, compression, etc… None of that has anything to do with distribution. Nevertheless, even if distribution was the case no one may ordain something that is not in the Shari’ah (Islamic Law). As noted in the original response, the onus is on the individual to take a deep look within him/herself to arrive at what settles his/her soul and soothes their his/her mind. After all, we will be taken to account for what we did based on our intentions and how well we sought the Truth.
We do hope that you read more of our responses and welcome any productive criticism you may have. After all, our objective is to understand God’s path. We have never shied from criticism because we acknowledge the fact that we could be wrong and are open to be corrected. Comments like yours are valued tremendously as we may learn something from them. We only ask that proper decorum is observed and a congenial atmosphere espoused.
I hope this helps.
God knows best.
