Slaughtering a Black Goat


Last Updated on Saturday, 28 April 2012 12:24


Assalaamu alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh 

My husband recently went to see a Hakeem as he believes that someone has done something to him. He came back with water to drink and lemons that he should rub on his body after he must cut up  the lemon and throw it away. The hakeem also told him to buy a black goat which he must slaughter and rub the goat’s blood on his body after 2hours he should wash it off. He received a taweez as well. Is this allowed in Islam as i have not heard of it before? He brought the same prescription for me as well even though i did not inform him whether i have a problem or not. I am doubting all this and would appreciate it if you could give more clarity on this matter.

Asalamu alykum. is it permissible to play games where you have to pay to play, and you might win (not based on any skill) or not. for example a kids game where they pay you a fee and there are a few things in a bowl of jelly and you ask them to pick out a certain thing with their mouth. if they pick out the right thing they win a prize. is this permissible?
