“Marrying in such a family is avoidable and not preferable. Those who are nourished with ‘haram’ (illegitimate) wealth usually they are not good in respect to instinct and morals. Hence, it should be avoided. One should find out a match in some pious family,” it responded.

The Islamic law prohibits any investment in businesses that are considered against the principles of Islam.
In Islam, money has no intrinsic value money, therefore, cannot be sold at a profit and is permitted to be used as per Shariat only. Islamic banks work on the principles of an interest-free banking.

Recently, Darul Uloom issued a fatwa saying posting pictures on social media was prohibited in Islam. It also banned posting selfies on WhatsApp and Facebook.
