The modern age has heard of all sorts of fatwas; senseless or full of sense. From maulvis declaring the watching of football haram for women to allowing men to literally ‘eat’ their wives when they are starving, you will find all sorts of fatwa every now and then.
If you are reading this article while using someone’s WiFi without their permission, you are probably committing a huge sin, according to this new fatwa.
According to the Department of Islamic Affairs and Charitable Activities (IACAD), Muslims are not allowed to use another person’s WiFi without their permission/consent.
Reading This, Do You Think You’ll Ever Use Someone’s WiFi Without their Permission Now?
Following Is the Fatwa Released By the Department:
“It is not allowed for people to use what belongs to others without payment or without their permission. Therefore, the Internet should be used only after subscribing to the service,”
It all started when someone, on the website of the department, asked whether it is permissible/allowed to use someone’s WiFi without their permissions. In the modern fatwas which the department released every now and then, they declared it as something which isn’t allowed.

The fatwa is making rounds on local social media, as well as publications on how it is inappropriate while citing the fatwa:
So what do you guys make of this fatwa? For one, it may make some sense, if not all. If you are using an item which doesn’t belong to you, that means you are stealing it. Same applies to using WiFi which does not belong to you.
Maybe we just never thought of it this way…right?
Share with us what you think and maybe, there is a better way to look at this modern fatwa…
