Not to imitate others in dressing


Rasulullah (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam) said:

Whoever imitates a Nation will be counted among them

This hadeeth is in Abu Dawud, Chapter of Clothing.

Can we state that since this Hadith was quoted by Imam Abu Dawud (rahimahullah) in the Chapter of Clothing, we are required by the Sunnah to dress Islamically, so as to differentiate ourselves from the non Muslims?

Is the Shari'ah silent on some issues?


Ibn Majah and Tirmidhi narrated on the authority of Salman al-Farisi that he said: the Messenger of Allah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) was asked about the ghee, cheese and furs? He (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) said:

“The (Halal) allowed is what Allah allowed in his book, and the (Haram) forbidden is what Allah forbade in His book, and what He (sakata) kept silent about is among what He (afa) forgave”.

Al-Bayhaqi narrated on the authority of Abu Tha’labah on behalf of the Prophet (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) that he said:

“Allah had obliged obligations, do not loose them, and he sat boundaries do not invade them, and he forbade things so do not trespass them, and he kept silent about other things, as a permission for you, not out of forgetness, so do not search for them”.

My question is: What is the meaning of “he kept silent about other things, as a permission for you, not out of forgetness, so do not search for them.” Does this mean the Sharia has left out certain matters and therefore there bear no Hukm Shari (ruling) and are allowed? Jazakallahu Khayran.

Did Nabi (sallallallahu’alayhi wasallam) touch the hand of strange women


First of all, may Allah grant you Jannatul Firdaus for your efforts.

I’ve read the following extract of a text. The text contains strong arguments (from my perspective) that it is allowed to touch non-Mahram women, as long as there is no fear of desire. I always thought that would be haram but the Hadith (sahihayn) seems to indicate something different. My question is, what is the understanding of the Hadith

Here is the text passage:

“It is reported in the two Sahihs that Anas ibn Malik (may Allah be pleased with him) said, “The Prophet (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) used to visit Umm Haram bint Milhan, who would offer him meals. Umm Haram was the wife of `Ubadah ibn As-Samit. Allah’s Messenger once visited her and she provided him with food and started looking for lice in his head. Then Allah’s Messenger slept putting his head in her lap, and afterwards woke up smiling. Umm Hiram asked, ‘What causes you to smile, O Allah’s Messenger?’ He said, ‘Some of my followers who [in a dream] were presented before me as fighters in Allah’s Cause [on board a ship] amidst this sea cause me to smile; they were as kings on thrones …’”

This Hadith suggests that we can touch strange females if there is no fear of sin.

Please explain.
