    مراحل صياغة الفتوى
    الأحد, 14 كانون1/ديسمبر 2014
    كتبه أ. د. علي جمعة

    صناعة الإفتاء من العلوم المعقدة التي تحتاج إلى حرفية خاصة للقيام بها وإصدارها في صورة صحيحة، وتعد عملية صياغة الفتوى من أعقد العناصر في هذه الصناعة، حيث تمر الفتوى في ذهن المفتي بأربع مراحل أساسية، تخرج بعدها في صورتها التي يسمعها أو يراها المستفتي، وهذه المراحل الأربع هي: مرحلة التصوير، ومرحلة التكييف، ومرحلة بيان الحكم، ومرحلة الإصدار، وفيما يلي بيان لهذه المراحل.

    المرحلة الأولى: مرحلة التصوير:

    وفيما يتم تصوير المسألة من قبل السائل الذي يريد أن يستفتي في واقعة نزلت به أو بغيره، والتصوير الصحيح المطابق للواقع شرط أساسي لصحة الفتوى ومطابقتها للواقع الفعلي المسئول عنه، فعدم صحة التصوير يؤدي إلى أن الفتوى الصادرة ستكون لما فهم من السؤال وليس لما هو في نفس الأمر، وعبء التصوير أساساً يقع على السائل، لكن المفتي ينبغي عليه أن يتحرى بواسطة السؤال عن الجهات الأربع التي تختلف الأحكام باختلافها، وكثيراً ما يتم الخلط والاختلاط من قبل السائل بشأنها، وهي الزمان والمكان والأشخاص والأحوال، كما ينبغي على المفتي أيضا أن يتأكد من تعلق السؤال بالأفراد أو بالأمة لأن الفتوى تختلف باختلاف هذين الأمرين.

    والتصوير قد يكون لواقعة فعلية وقد يكون لأمر مقدر لم يقع بعد، وحينئذ فلابد من مراعاة المآلات والعلاقات البينية، وبقدر ما عند المفتي من قدرة على التصوير بقدر ما تكون الفتوى أقرب لتحقيق المقاصد الشرعية وتحقيق المصلحة ودرء المفسدة.

    وقد نص الغزالي في كتاب «حقيقة القولين» كما أورده السيوطي في «الرد على من أخلد إلى الأرض وجهل أن الاجتهاد في كل عصر فرض» على أن وضع الصور بالمسائل ليس بأمر هين في نفسه، بل الذكي ربما يقدر على الفتوى في كل مسألة إذا ذكرت له صورتها، ولو كلف وضع الصور وتصوير كل ما يمكن من التفريعات والحوادث في كل واقعة عجز عنه، ولم يخطر بقلبه تلك الصور أصلا، وإنما ذلك من شأن المجتهدين.

    المرحلة الثانية: مرحلة التكييف:

    والتكييف هو إلحاق الصورة المسئول عنها بما يناسبها من أبواب الفقه ومسائله، فنكيف المسألة مثلا على أنها من باب المعاملات لا العبادات، وأنها من باب العقود، وأنها من قسم مسمى منها، أو من العقود الجديدة غير المسماة، وهذه مرحلة تهيئ لبيان حكم الشرع الشريف في مثل هذه الواقعة، والتكييف من عمل المفتي، ويحتاج إلى نظر دقيق، لأن الخطأ فيه يترتب عليه الخطأ في الفتوى، والتكييف قد يختلف العلماء فيه، وهذا الاختلاف أحد أسباب اختلاف الفتوى، والترجيح بين المختلفين حينئذ يرجع إلى قوة دليل أي منهم، ويرجع إلى عمق فهم الواقع، ويرجع إلى تحقيق المقاصد والمصالح ورفع الحرج وهي الأهداف العليا للشريعة.

    المرحلة الثالثة: مرحلة بيان الحكم:

    والحكم الشرعي هو خطاب الله تعالى المتعلق بأفعال المكلفين بالاقتضاء أو التخيير أو الوضع، ويؤخذ هذا من الكتاب والسنة والإجماع، ويتم إظهاره أيضاً بواسطة القياس والاستدلال، ويجب على المفتي أن يكون مدركاً للكتاب والسنة ومواطن الإجماع وكيفية القياس ودلالات الألفاظ العربية وترتيب الأدلة وطرق الاستنباط، وإدراك الواقع إدراكاً صحيحاً، وتأتي هذا بتحصيله لعلوم الوسائل والمقاصد كالأصول والفقه واللغة والحديث ونحوها، وبتدريبه على الإفتاء الذي ينشئ لديه ملكة راسخة في النفس يكون قادراً بها على ذلك، وكذلك تحليه بالتقوى والورع والعمل على ما ينفع الناس.

    المرحلة الرابعة: إصدار الفتوى:

    أو مرحلة التنزيل أي إنزال هذا الحكم الذي توصل إليه على الواقع، وحينئذ فلابد عليه من التأكد أن هذا الذي سيفتي به لا يكر على المقاصد الشرعية بالبطلان، ولا يخالف نصاً مقطوعاً به ولا إجماعا متفقا عليه ولا قاعدة فقهية مستقرة، فإذا وجد شيئاً من هذا فعليه بمراجعة فتواه حتى تتوفر فيها تلك الشروط.

    هذه هي المراحل الأربع لصياغة الفتوى وهذا عرض موجز لها لتبسيط مفهومها للقارئ، ويجب الإشارة أن الاختلاف بين المجتهدين في صياغة الفتوى قد يقع في أي مرحلة من هذه المراحل، فقد يختلف المفتون في عملية التصوير مما يترتب عليه اختلاف فتواهم في نفس المسألة، وقد يقع الاختلاف عند التكييف أو بيان الحكم أو حتى في المرحلة الرابعة الخاصة بإصدار الفتوى، واختلافهم في كل ذلك رحمة للمسلمين وصدق قول الشاعر:

    حديث الصخرة يجب على الجميع قرأته وفهمه جيدًا
    قال رسول الله – صلى الله عليه وسلم – :« انطلق ثلاثة رهط ممن كان قبلكم حتى أووا المبيت إلى غار فدخلوه ، فانحدرت صخرة من الجبل فسدت عليهم الغار فقالوا إنه لا ينجيكم من هذه الصخرة إلا أن تدعوا الله بصالح أعمالكم . فقال رجل منهم اللهم كان لى أبوان شيخان كبيران ، وكنت لا أغبق قبلهما أهلا ولا مالا ، فنأى بى فى طلب شىء يوما ، فلم أرح عليهما حتى ناما ، فحلبت لهما غبوقهما فوجدتهما نائمين وكرهت أن أغبق قبلهما أهلا أو مالا ، فلبثت والقدح على يدى أنتظر استيقاظهما حتى برق الفجر ، فاستيقظا فشربا غبوقهما ، اللهم إن كنت فعلت ذلك ابتغاء وجهك ففرج عنا ما نحن فيه من هذه الصخرة ، فانفرجت شيئا لا يستطيعون الخروج » . قال النبى – صلى الله عليه وسلم – « وقال الآخر اللهم كانت لى بنت عم كانت أحب الناس إلى ، فأردتها عن نفسها ، فامتنعت منى حتى ألمت بها سنة من السنين ، فجاءتنى فأعطيتها عشرين ومائة دينار على أن تخلى بينى وبين نفسها ، ففعلت حتى إذا قدرت عليها قالت لا أحل لك أن تفض الخاتم إلا بحقه . فتحرجت من الوقوع عليها ، فانصرفت عنها وهى أحب الناس إلى وتركت الذهب الذى أعطيتها ، اللهم إن كنت فعلت ذلك ابتغاء وجهك فافرج عنا ما نحن فيه . فانفرجت الصخرة ، غير أنهم لا يستطيعون الخروج منها . قال النبى – صلى الله عليه وسلم – وقال الثالث اللهم إنى استأجرت أجراء فأعطيتهم أجرهم ، غير رجل واحد ترك الذى له وذهب فثمرت أجره حتى كثرت منه الأموال ، فجاءنى بعد حين فقال يا عبد الله أد إلى أجرى . فقلت له كل ما ترى من أجرك من الإبل والبقر والغنم والرقيق . فقال يا عبد الله لا تستهزئ بى . فقلت إنى لا أستهزئ بك . فأخذه كله فاستاقه فلم يترك منه شيئا ، اللهم فإن كنت فعلت ذلك ابتغاء وجهك فافرج عنا ما نحن فيه . فانفرجت الصخرة فخرجوا يمشون » . [صحيح البخاري]

    Dr William Chittick on ‘The Meaning of Islam’

    ‘The religion’ as described by the Qur’an addresses three universal concerns: practice, understanding, and virtue. Or: doing the right thing, seeing things in perspective, and participating in Allah’s (exalted be He) Beauty and Goodness. Or: conforming to the Ultimate Reality in body, mind, and heart. Or: law, understanding, and love. Or: ritual, wisdom, and compassion. Islamic texts typically list these three concerns in this order – from the most external to the most internal, because that is the way people develop.

    ‎18 Sources of Barakah
    By Mohd Fudzail

    If we were to look for an Islamic definition of Productivity, it’ll probably be summarised in the word “barakah” or Blessing. Being able to achieve more with little resources, doing much in little time, and generate a lot with little effort surely is a blessing from Allah (SWT). Yet Barakah has somehow become a lost treasure these days; everyone’s looking for it, but no one seems to find it! You always hear people complaining that there’s no barakah in their time, no barakah in their sleep, no barakah in their money..etc. In this post, we’ll solve this mystery inshaAllah, we’ll find out what Barakah is and where you can find it!
    What is Barakah?

    A Well-known daee explains it as follows: “Barakah is the attachment of Divine goodness to a thing, so if it occurs in something little, it increases it. And if it occurs in something much it benefits. And the greatest fruits of Barakah in all things is to use that barakah in the obedience of Allah (SWT)”.
    Sources of Barakah

    I’m a firm believer that Barakah is not a lost treasure, it’s right in front of our eyes! This treasure is only available and ready to be handed over to the one who works for it. Below I list some of the sources of Barakah. It’s not an exhaustive list, therefore, I do hope you can contribute to it with your comments below inshaAllah so we can all share and extend our understanding of this great treasure!

    1. Good Intentions
    If you want something to have barakah attached to it, have good intentions for it. More specifically, make sure that deed is intended for the sake of Allah (SWT). Looking at the definition of Barakah again, you may guess that without us intending what we have or do to be for thesake of Allah, the “Divine goodness” won’t be attached to it.

    2. Piety and Belief in Allah
    Allah says in the Quran: “If the people of the towns had but believed and feared Allah, We should indeed have opened out to them (All kinds of) blessings from heaven and earth…”(Surat Al-A’raf, verse 96). And He says in the Quran: “And for those who fear Allah, He (ever) prepares a way out. And He provides for him from (sources) he never could imagine” (Surat Al-Talaq, verses 2-3).

    3. Putting your trust in Allah
    Allay says in the Quran: “And if any one puts his trust in Allah, sufficient is ((Allah)) for him. For Allah will surely accomplish his purpose: verily, for all things has Allah appointed a due proportion” (Surat Al-Talaq, verses 3) Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) said: “If only you relied on Allaah a true reliance, He would provide sustenance for you just as He does the birds: They fly out in the morning empty and return in the afternoon with full stomachs.”

    4. Reading Quran
    This is the fountain of the Barakah! But subhanaAllah, we rarely drink from it! Allah says in the Quran: “And this is a Book which We have sent down, bringing blessings, and confirming (the revelations) which came before it…” (Surat Al-An’am, verse 92). So read the Quran, and note the blessings and barakah of Allah coming to your life. The further we are from this book, the less barakah we’ll have in our lives, trust me.

    5. Saying Bismillah
    When you say bismillah before anything you do, you’re invoking the name of Allah on that activity, not only will that activity be blessed but shaytaan cannot take part in it! So always say bismillah before anything you do! SubhanaAllah, it’s easy for us to forget to say Bismillah or be conscious of saying it. Sometimes we’re so used to saying it that we can’t remember if we said it or not! Try to be conscious of saying Bismillah and understand what you’re saying.

    6. Eating with People
    Anyone who had the experience of inviting guests to his/her house will know this one. No matter how little you think the food you’re presenting to your guest is, it’s always enough! (note: this is not an excuse to be miserly when you invite guests over, in fact we should follow the sunnah of our Prophet Ibhraim (Peace be upon him) who when the angels visited his house and he didn’t know they were angels he went and prepared a large meal for them). What I’m referring here is the blessing that occurs with eating together, this is confirmed in the hadeeth of Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) who said :”Eat together, for blessing is in Jamma’a (congregation or being together)…” and in another hadeeth “Whoever has food enough for two persons, should take a third one, and whoever has food enough for four persons, should take a fifth or a sixth (or said something similar).”

    7. Honesty in Trade
    This is for all of the business people out there (include ebayers!), don’t think that lying and deceiving people would make your trade profitable, on the contrary, it’ll remove the blessing from your trade. Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) said: “The buyer and the seller have the option ofcancelingor confirming the bargain unless they separate, and if they spoke the truth and made clear the defects of the goods, them they would be blessed in their bargain, and if they told lies and hid some facts, their bargain would be deprived of Allah’s blessings.”
    Yes, it’s difficult to be honest when you’re trying to sell something, but trust me it’s worth it.

    8. Dua
    Ask Allah for barakah! If you listen to some of the Duas from the Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) you’ll notice how the Prophet used to make dua for barakah. We always say “May Allah bless you!” well, guess what? That’s a source of barakah! Also, when you’re invited to someone’s house, Prophet Muhammad advised us to make the following dua for the host:”O Allaah, bless for them, that which You have provided them, forgive them and have mercy upon them.”

    9. Halal income/money
    Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) said: “O people, Allah is good and He therefore, accepts only that which is good”Scholars refer this to Halal income and the importance of Halal income. A scholar also said that the one who eats Haram his limbs will disobey Allah whether he likes it or not, and the one who eats Halal and seeks Halal income his limbs will also do good and would be given the permission to seek goodness.

    This concept of your limbs being “blessed” and enabled to do good, is truly a blessing and a barakah we should all seek. Reminds me of a story of the old man, who jumped a large distance that young people couldn’t do. So when the young men asked the old man how he did it, he replied: “These are limbs, we’ve protected it from doing sins when we were young, so Allah preserved them from us when we got old”

    10. Following the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad in all things
    I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again, the most Productive Man in the history of humanity is Prophet Muhammad(Peace be upon him), therefore, by just following his lifestyle and the sunnahs we so often hear about, is a great source of Barakah!
    Some of these sunnahs include: Eating Suhoor, eating with the right hand from the side of the plate, going out for Eid Salat, licking your fingers after finishing eating, sleeping on your right hand side, using the siwaak, and many more. Look out for these sunnahs and follow them, for imitating the life of the most blessed man on earth, is surely a source of blessing!

    11. Praying Istikhara
    Praying istikhara in all matters and handing over the matters to Allah and accepting his decree is a great source of barakah. And Prophet Muhammad have taught us this beautiful dua which helps us make decisions and not regret the choices we make with the permission of Allah in the following hadeeth:

    On the authority of Jaabir Ibn ‘Abdullah he said: The Prophet (S) would instruct us to pray for guidance in all of our concerns, just as he would teach us a chapter from the Qur’an. He (S) would say ‘if any of you intends to undertake a mater then let him pray two supererogatory units (two rak’ah naafilah) of prayer and after which he should supplicate:

    ‘O Allaah, I seek Your counsel by Your knowledge and by Your power I seek strength and I ask You from Your immense favour, for verily You are able while I am not and verily You know while I do not and You are the Knower of the unseen. O Allaah, if You know this affair -and here he mentions his need- to be good for me in relation to my religion, my life, and end, then decree and facilitate it for me, and bless me with it, and if You know this affair to be ill for me towards my religion, my life, and end, then remove it from me and remove me from it , and decree for me what is good wherever it be and make me satisfied with such.’

    One who seeks guidance from his Creator and consults his fellow believers and then remains firm in his resolve does not regret for Allaah has said:
    ‘…and consult them in the affair. Then when you have taken a decision, put your trust in Allaah…”

    12. Giving thanks to Allah in abundance
    Allah says in the Quran: “If ye are grateful, I will add more (favours) unto you” A scholar once told me if you look into this verse, the Arabic word that is used to confirm that Allah will favours unto the person who thanks Allah is actually in the form of an Oath “La azidannakum” so Allah is promising the person who thanks Him that He’ll increase him, and Allah never breaks his promises.

    13. Charity
    In the Hadeeth Qudusi, Allah says: “O son of Adam, spend (in charity), and I’ll spend on you!” Whenever you are broke, or you feel barakah is zapped out of our life and urgently need it back, the quickest of way of getting barakah in your life is giving charity. Not only because of the above hadeeth, but let’s say barakah has been removed from your life because of a sin you’ve committed, charity cleanses your sins and adds good deeds and is truly a source of barakah. I cannot describe the instantaneous gratification of giving charity and the barakah that follows it! Try it NOW!

    14. Tying your ties of kinship
    Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet said, “Allah created His creation, and when He had finished it, the womb, got up and caught hold of Allah whereupon Allah said, “What is the matter?’ On that, it said, ‘I seek refuge with you from those who sever the ties of Kith and kin.’ On that Allah said, ‘Will you be satisfied if I bestow My favors on him who keeps your ties, and withhold My favors from him who severs your ties?’ On that it said, ‘Yes, O my Lord!’ Then Allah said, ‘That is for you.’ ” Abu Huraira added: If you wish, you can recite: “Would you then if you were given the authority. do mischief in the land and sever your ties ofkinship.”

    15. Waking up early
    Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) said: “Allah made the early hours blessed for my Ummah.”
    This hadeeth was the reason for me to start Such gems of productivity are actually sources of blessings that we should seek to make our life productive. Waking up early is such an important part of being blessed and feeling blessed throughout your day.
    Try to wake up for tahajjud, pray, and then work during the hours before fajr salaat and tahajjud. If you can’t, then at least wake up for fajr and stay up till sunrise before you go back to sleep. Those hours are so blessed. If you’re able to go to work in those hours, do so, you’ll get much more work done than the whole day put together!

    16. Marriage
    Allah says in the Quran: “Marry those among you who are single, or the virtuous ones among yourselves, male or female: if they are in poverty, Allah will give them means out of His grace: for Allah encompasseth all, and he knoweth all things.”
    Speaking of marriage, I highly recommend the following training course to anyone seriously thinking of getting married:

    17 Salaat
    Allah says in the Quran: “Enjoin prayer on thy people, and be constant therein. We ask thee not to provide sustenance: We provide it for thee. But the (fruit of) the Hereafter is for righteousness”. To illustrate the point of Salaat further, just imagine your life without salaat, where would barakah come from? For those of you who are still wavering in their Salaat, please get back on track, this is your lifeline in this life and hereafter, and the daily food for your soul.

    18. Asking Allah for forgiveness
    The Prophet (Peace be upon him) said: “If anyone continually asks forgiveness from Allah, Allah will appoint for him a way out of every distress, and a relief from every anxiety, and will provide for him from where he did not reckon.”

    Professor: That’s right. Tell me son, is there evil in this world?

    Student : Yes.

    Professor: Evil is everywhere, isn’t it ? And GOD did make everything. Correct?

    Student : Yes.

    Student : Yes, sir.

    Professor: So, who created them ?

    (Student had no answer.)

    Professor: Science says you have 5 Senses you use to identify and observe the world around you. Tell me, son, have you ever seen GOD?

    Student : No, sir.

    Professor: Tell us if you have ever heard your GOD?

    Student : No , sir.

    Professor: Have you ever felt your GOD, tasted your GOD, smelt your GOD? Have you ever had any sensory perception of GOD for that matter?

    Student : No, sir. I’m afraid I haven’t.

    Professor: Yet you still believe in Him?

    Student : Yes.

    Professor : According to Empirical, Testable, Demonstrable Protocol, Science says your GOD doesn’t exist. What do you say to that, son?

    Student : Nothing. I only have my faith.

    Professor: Yes, faith. And that is the problem Science has.

    Student : Professor, is there such a thing as heat?

    Professor: Yes.

    Student : And is there such a thing as cold?

    Professor: Yes.

    Student : No, sir. There isn’t.

    (The lecture theater became very quiet with this turn of events.)

    Student : Sir, you can have lots of heat, even more heat, superheat, mega heat, white heat, a little heat or no heat. But we don’t have anything called cold. We can hit 458 degrees below zero which is no heat, but we can’t go any further after that. There is no such thing as cold. Cold is only a word we use to describe the absence of heat. We cannot measure cold. Heat is energy. Cold is not the opposite of heat, sir, just the absence of it.

    (There was pin-drop silence in the lecture theater.)

    Student : What about darkness, Professor? Is there such a thing as darkness?

    Professor: Yes. What is night if there isn’t darkness?

    Student : You’re wrong again, sir. Darkness is the absence of something. You can have low light, normal light, bright light, flashing light. But if you have no light constantly, you have nothing and its called darkness, isn’t it? In reality, darkness isn’t. If it is, well you would be able to make darkness darker, wouldn’t you?

    Professor: So what is the point you are making, young man ?

    Student : Sir, my point is your philosophical premise is flawed.

    Professor: Flawed ? Can you explain how?

    Student : Sir, you are working on the premise of duality. You argue there is life and then there is death, a good GOD and a bad GOD. You are viewing the concept of GOD as something finite, something we can measure. Sir, Science can’t even explain a thought. It uses electricity and magnetism, but has never seen, much less fully understood either one. To view death as the opposite of life is to be ignorant of the fact that death cannot exist as a substantive thing.

    Death is not the opposite of life: just the absence of it. Now tell me, Professor, do you teach your students that they evolved from a monkey?

    Professor: If you are referring to the natural evolutionary process, yes, of course, I do.

    Student : Have you ever observed evolution with your own eyes, sir?

    (The Professor shook his head with a smile, beginning to realize where the argument was going.)

    Student : Since no one has ever observed the process of evolution at work and cannot even prove that this process is an on-going endeavor. Are you not teaching your opinion, sir? Are you not a scientist but a preacher?

    (The class was in uproar.)

    Student : Is there anyone in the class who has ever seen the Professor’s brain?

    (The class broke out into laughter. )

    Student : Is there anyone here who has ever heard the Professor’s brain, felt it, touched or smelt it? No one appears to have done so. So, according to the established Rules of Empirical, Stable, Demonstrable Protocol, Science says that you have no brain, sir. With all due respect, sir, how do we then trust your lectures, sir?

    (The room was silent. The Professor stared at the student, his face unfathomable.)

    Professor: I guess you’ll have to take them on faith, son.

    Student : That is it sir … Exactly ! The link between man & GOD is FAITH. That is all that keeps things alive and moving.

    P.S.

    I believe you have enjoyed the conversation. And if so, you’ll probably want your friends / colleagues to enjoy the same, won’t you?

    Forward this to increase their knowledge … or FAITH.

    By the way, that student was EINSTEIN.
