ANSWER: Bismillahir-Rahmanir-Rahim (In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful)


Dear Brother/Sister,

1. I am sorry I refrain from giving my opinions in matters. However whether the moon split or didn't neither increases nor decreases my faith in Allah.

2. I am sorry so far have not read any hadith that supports this issue. Any child born our of wedlock is illegitimate.

QUESTION: sir i believe you misunderstood my question. I have no concern with whether your faith increase or decreases. this is your personal matter. I just want to know that some tafaseer has stated that shaqul qamar incident did take place, while some like SHAH WALI ULLAH believe that no it didn't. Both have their arguments. I just want to know your opinion. And if your believe that by giving opinion either your faith will decrease or increase, then i am sorry to say that your faith is very weak, you should immediately quit this job, as people will ask your opinion in so many matters.
