Is it allowed to eat duck?

Question 1: What have respected Islamic scholars and Muftis ruled on the following issue? Is it Halal to eat duck?

بِسْمِ اللّٰہِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِیْمِ

اَلْجَوَابُ بِعَوْنِ الْمَلِکِ الْوَھَّابِ اَللّٰھُمَّ  ھِدَایَۃَ الْحَقِّ وَالصَّوَابِ

Answer: According to Shari’ah-established laws, the bird that hunts by the means of its claws is Haraam and the bird that does not hunt by the means of its claws is Halal. The duck is not among the birds that hunt by their claws. Therefore, it is Halal indeed. It may be eaten after being slaughtered in accordance with Shari’ah.

وَاللہُ  اَعْلَمُ   عَزَّوَجَلَّ   وَ رَسُوْلُہٗ اَعْلَم   صَلَّی اللّٰہُ عَلَیْہِ واٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّم

Naming anyone Muhammad Rafay

Question 2: What have respected Islamic scholars and Muftis ruled on the following issue? Is it allowed to name a child “Muhammad Rafay”?

بِسْمِ اللّٰہِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِیْمِ

اَلْجَوَابُ بِعَوْنِ الْمَلِکِ الْوَھَّابِ اَللّٰھُمَّ  ھِدَایَۃَ الْحَقِّ وَالصَّوَابِ

Answer: According to Shari’ah, it is permissible to name anyone “Muhammad Rafay”. Although ‘رَافِع’ is one of such Divine names that show an attribute of Almighty Allah, it is among Asma-ul-Mushtarikah i.e. the names that are permissible to be applied to the creation as well. The blessed name of many blessed companions رَضِىَ اللّٰەُ عَنْهُم was Rafay. For example, Rafay Bin Khudaij, Rafay Bin ‘Amr and so on.  Therefore, it is permissible to name anyone Muhammad Rafay. However, it is suggested that a child should be named “Muhammad” only and this should be his real name. In blessed Ahadees, many virtues and blessings of the names “Muhammad” and “Ahmad” have been mentioned. And these virtues apply to the names “Muhammad” and “Ahmad” only. Therefore, a child should be named Muhammad only. Then he may be called by any other name such as Rafay, etc.

Transfusion of non-Mahram’s blood into woman

Question 3: What have respected Islamic scholars and Muftis ruled on the following issue? Is it allowed to transfuse the blood of a non-Mahram man into an Islamic sister who needs blood transfusion?

بِسْمِ اللّٰہِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِیْمِ

اَلْجَوَابُ بِعَوْنِ الْمَلِکِ الْوَھَّابِ اَللّٰھُمَّ  ھِدَایَۃَ الْحَقِّ وَالصَّوَابِ

Answer: In accordance with Shari’ah, the blood of a person is impure whether he is a close Mahram relative or a non-Mahram. Blood transfusion into the body of a person in normal situations is impermissible and Haraam. However, if a Shari’ah-accepted need exists, then most of respected Islamic jurists allow blood transfusion in this case. Therefore, in all of those cases in which blood transfusion is allowed by Shari’ah, the blood of any person may be transfused into the body whether it is the blood of a Muslim or a non-Muslim, that of a Mahram or a non-Mahram. This is permissible.
