Meerut: Darul Uloom Deoband has said taking selfie is un-Islamic for both men and women.
And since nail polish leads to the application of a chemical layer on the nail, water is not able to reach where is should and if vazu is incomplete, namaz automatically remains incomplete,” it had stated.
“It is mandatory to conduct vazu (washing of hands and feet) before offering namaz.
Darul Ifta, the online fatwa department of the renowned seminary, replying to a query by a Pakistani youth, said that since mostly selfies are taken to be posted on social media, it gives rise to ‘behayaee’ (shamelessness).Maulana Asad Kasmi, a Deoband-based cleric, said, “We fully agree with Darul as every fatwa issued by the seminary is in the light of religious scriptures.
Selfie is a new craze among youths which is not only bad in the eyes of Islam but also contributes to a large number of accidents leading to loss of lives.”This is not the first time that that the seminary has issued such directions.
