In a Dar-ul-Qaza case involving financial transactions, one party requested the respected Mufti-e-Silsila to issue a fatwa on the matter and also submitted a copy of the request to Hazrat Amirul Momineen, Khalifatul Masih Vaa.
In his letter dated 25 March 2021, Huzooraa provided the petitioner with the following instructions in this regard:
“You sent a detailed letter to the respected Mufti-e-Silsila, seeking a fatwa on your dispute and also sent me a copy of it. I instructed the respected Mufti-e-Silsila to reply to your letter and also wrote to him that he should send me a copy of his reply.
“After reviewing the fatwa of Mufti-e-Silsila, the files held at Dar-ul-Qaza UK and Umur-e-Ama Department UK regarding your dispute, as well as the decision of the court, it becomes clear that the verdict that was given was absolutely correct. The additional money that the court has imposed on you (as compensation) does not fall under the category of interest at all. In the eyes of the court, it is the right of the other party. There is also nothing in the Shariah that prevents the other party from taking that money. They are free to take that money.”
